Hey all...again...I heard there was a way to check the boot loader..haven't done that yet, but it only needs to be flashed once.
Also, as much as I admire the extra wipes etc....here is my process:
Backups first...then boot to recovery (I am using twrp...) for a dirty flash, I just wipe dalvik and cache...for a clean I run the factory reset and then wipe dalvik and cache...after wiping I install the ROM and gapps then fix permissions then reboot system. It really is best for me to install ROM and gapps on the same recovery session, never had a single issue that way, but if I split it up...yeah, bad news for Nexy!
Log in but only restore TIBU, if I did a clean install, I then restore all missing apps, (no system apps!!!)..or at least the apps I want back on there....let it sit about 5 min, connect to Google etc.
Then reboot to recovery, wipe dalvik, install mods etc, wipe dalvik, set permissions...reboot system. And all done.
I have been doing this since I got the phone, basically same process originally with CWMR and aokp and not had a single issue with Wallet or anything else (unless you count incompatible mods...)
I also only flashed the JB boooader once, after the ROM I am using went AOSP....I am running jelly belly and could not be happier....plus I am using an app called notification toggles from Play...works great!!
I am finally getting over 4 hours screen on time on stock battery and stock kernel-as long as I am not downloading, flashing, messing with a ROM update during the day since I only have 4g at work, no WiFi.
BB hope you have a great time!!
BTW if anyone plays sky rim?? Add me as a friend?? Let me know so I can add you on Steam??
