It took FOREVER to figure out how to flash CWM onto my device, since the newer CWM files are .img files, and Odin doesn't like them for some reason. I eventually stumbled upon a reference to "ROM Manager", a device I have been carting around, device to device, but never really used. It took about 15 seconds to flash CWM with it. I did notice, though, that Rom Manager seems to have the capability to flash ROMs, as well. Has anyone used this in this capacity? Successes, failures? I would welcome any and all input before I attempt to try his, and NOT make my phone a brick. Thanks in advance!
Hi trippwojohn & welcome to AF
The best way to change ROMs is to do it "old school" not from an app IMO.
It helps one learn the do's & don't the hard way if direction is not followed. It is the way I have learned through trial & error for sure.
Let me know and I will walk you through your options.
Congrats on rooting-haven't had the time here....YET(this weekend)!
