Default Velocity 1.1 Upgrade Procedure


The new Velocity 1.1 will be available tonight as a Midnight release, we have been working all day to ensure the process is smooth. Here is how it is going to work, Trident is going to host the standalone and mirror it on a separate server. I will be hosting the OTA version the script will download on the 3 Velocity OTA mirrors. This gives us a total of 5 separate servers hosting the rom, so bandwidth should not be a problem.

Flashing Standalone Update:
The Standalone Rom will be flashed just like any of the previous versions. There is however one new feature. [ (doing the following may result in an inability to send MMS messages) If you are coming from Velocity 1.0 it is possible to flash the rom and retain all of your downloaded applications and settings. Simply Wipe Dalvik-Cache and Cache in recovery before flashing (instead of wiping all userdata) ]
So heres a step by step for those of you not used to this:
  • Download the Standalone Rom from the Release thread (available tonight at midnight)
  • Copy the file to your phones sdcard
  • Reboot your phone into recovery
  • Make a nandroid backup
  • Wipe [(doing the following may result in an inability to send MMS messages)] (if coming from 1.0 you can skip data and only wipe cache and dalvik as mentioned above)
  • Flash the ROM from your sdcard
  • Reboot and enjoy!

From the Script OTA:
As you have probably noticed there is a option in the script to check for Rom Updates in the script menu. Well it will finally report an update as available at midnight tonight! The script will let you choose between an update that will wipe data and one that will not. The choice is entirely up to you, (failure to wipe may result in an inability to send MMS messages) if you choose to wipe data it will be like restoring factory defaults, which is nice if you want a clean slate, or if you have some apps causing problems. But if you do not wipe it will leave all the apps you have in /data/app and your sdcard. And retain their data, as usual perform a nandroid if you don't have a recent one. The rom OTA is a large file (115mb) so it will take awhile to download, its not recommended to attempt this over 3g, while it is possible it would be hard to retain a connection for that long without some corruption. So for best results, get on wifi, and either plug your phone in and turn the display sleep off, or turn off the wifi sleep policy, (Menu, Wifi, Wifi Settings, Settings, Wifi Sleep). If the download is going horrendously slow you could always exit the script and start it again to get a different mirror. The script will check the Roms MD5 before it trys and flashes, so if it says the md5 fails, it will automatically remove downloaded files and take you back to the main menu, you can try again. Here is a step by step:
  • Open a terminal and type su for superuser access
  • Start the velocity by invoking velocity in the terminal
  • Enter the Rom Update checker (4 then 2)
  • Choose The Wipe or No Wipe OTA [B](failure to wipe may result in an inability to send MMS messages)[/B
  • Download OTA (115mb)
  • Select Y to reboot into recovery and flash automatically
  • OTA will flash and phone will reboot to 1.1 automatically

[EDIT BY TRIDENT:] It has been found that failure to wipe ALL userdata will result in the failure of MMS messages on send and receive! YOU MUST WIPE EVERYTHING!

If I chose to not clear data will it wipe dalvik cache and cache? Or can that be done once booted into recovery. It sounds as if it will auto boot into recovery and auto install. Sorry if this sounds noobish.

No, But if you are ODEXED you will want to make a nandroid before attempting to flash without wiping, I haven't tested that one. You will also be ok with dalvik on cache.

Make a nandroid and be a guinea pig, worst case is you will have to restore the nandroid and try again. You will have to odex again after flash because this will replace all your system partition with 1.1

Hmmmm... I have 2 Allys and one of them is downloading the OTA, no problem, and the other keeps repeatedly saying "You already have the latest rom version Press enter to continue".

Any ideas what I should do?

EDIT: Simply re-booted phone and tried again and it's downloading now.

How long does it take to ask to reboot once download is completed? I left the phone for an hour sitting at 100% download and nothing happened.

Hey! I like the colored progress bar for unpacking the system files on the otherwise "all text" screen in Recovery. Nice!

The

VE
LO
CI
TY

boot screen mentioned above actually looked better to me once I saw it than I thought it would.

I now see an "87" in the green battery icon. Looks like you addressed the previous tendency to show only multiples of 10, which would stay on the higher number (say, 90) until it actually fell to (say, 80) before updating, which meant I always had to be prepared to have 9% less battery than I 'thought' I had. I like this much better!

In case anyone wonders where Terminal Emulator went, it is listed in the menus of the Velocity Tool Kit. Its icon which I had on one of my home screens gets disabled. Nice to be able to set the OC right from the Tool Kit now!

THANKS!!

(Oops, I meant to post this on the 1.1 thread, not on the procedures thread. My bad. ).

Just did standalone update from 1.0 to 1.1 with no problems. Thanks crew ^_^

(I do wish the notification for VS740ZVE would go away though. There's no way to turn that off is there? I clear it every time I see it but it keeps coming back >_>)

Ok, Trident's edit to the OP has me a bit confused ... is the MMS bug in the script procedure only, or is it for the flash procedure as well. I don't have a problem wiping all data if I need to ... but I'm lazy and don't wanna hafta reload/reset everything if I don't need to.

EDIT: nevermind, did some more research, and it looks like I'm totally wiping.

You need to wipe data and the dalvik cache for both but I think doing it via the scripts automatically wipes the dalvik cache for you.

I got the notification today. What I had to do was, after it downloaded and claimed to have installed it went into the reboot phase at the end, but got hung on that screen. So after a few minutes I manually rebooted. Seems fine now and no more notification. Note that I did not install the utility it says we need if we wanted this update.

The OG script doesnt have this fuctionality, you should upgrade with the flashable zip in the scripts thread to v29, then 32 ota. OR just flash the rom the oldschool way

Never mind, the answers for updating the scripts are here:

Velocity Script

If you're getting 'Coming Soon' for a ROM update, see the FAQ in post 3 on the Velocity Script link above, it fixed it for me.

I don't see a FAQ in post # 2 ?? It is a single sentence posted by gb4fan.

OK it's post 3, smartypants. Clearly you got it working, your signature says Velocity 1.1.

First of all, I was not the one with the problem. I have been using 1.1 since its inception. But, no need to call names.

Post # 3 in this thread also doesn't have a FAQ in it?? Where exactly are you seeing the FAQ? Is it in a different thread? I'd like to know for future reference. I don't see a FAQ anywhere in the posts of this thread.

Sorry, I thought you were being obtuse on purpose.

Click on the link that says 'Velocity Script' and the FAQ is in post #3. It's not in this thread, it's in the linked thread. (the URL is not shown)

Being obtuse wasn't my intent at all. I like to leave 'bread crumbs' on forum threads so those coming along much later have an easier time researching a problem (been there myself too many times!). So I just wanted to try and clarify the location of the discussed information. Thanks for doing that.

Does this method work if coming from velocity v.4?

My wife had to get a replacement phone, it came with 2.1update1 so I used z4root to root the replacement but it wouldn't load her backup of velocity 1.1 from the old phone. I saw the update thread linked from the 1.1 thread, my laptop is vista and I am unable to get that procedure to work correctly so that doesn't appear to be an option for me, so I'm hoping this method will work to get her back to 1.1.

Thanks for the help,

Brent.

I would check out the 2.2 root guide but not if your only option is a vista pc. Before updating velocity, you will have to update to froyo.

That's what I was afraid of.

I'll have to see if I can get help from the guy who rooted her old phone for me in the first place I guess. I was just hoping there would be a way I could do it on my own. Oh well.

All you need is a pc with xp or windows 7. Then you can follow the 2.2 root guide. The advantages of the root guide is that it will downgrade to zv6 and give you fastboot access. If you cant get to a pc with 7 or vista you can download gingerbreak and root it. Use ROM manager to flash clockworkmod recovery THEN FLASH ALTERNATE RECOVERY, the recovery may not stick after a reboot. You need to remove /system/ect/install-recovery.sh then you can flash velocity 1.1, if you do it like this you wont have fastboot (which i think everyone should) but it will allow you to do it without a pc.

When the instruction says

Quote:
Copy the file to your phones sdcard
is this indicating that the velocity_1.1_release.zip file be copied in, or do I need to extract and locate something specific? Also, where on the SD card does it need to go? Root or in a specific folder/location?

It depends on how many folders you have in the root of your SD card.You'll want to copy the zip file to a folder that will get displayed from recovery when you go to flash the zip file to install Velocity. If you have lots of folders recovery won't see all of them. I created a folder name beginning with an underscore character to keep it close to the top of the list. By this same token, if copied to the root of the SD, and not all folders get displayed, you won't see the individual files that list at the bottom.

Yup, I just decided to drop the zip in root & see what happened. Lo & behold, it all worked just like it was supposed to and I've got Velocity installed. Haven't really done anything with it yet but I've now got a new thing to play with over the weekend.

You will want to make sure and update the Scripts to version 38 (or later as they release) so you don't start getting the notification for an OTA from Verizon. It has been well discussed in a few threads.

Enjoy!

I know I probably sound like an idiot but I'm a little new to this. I downloaded velocity 1.1 and flashed it. I didn't wipe anything. Now when I turn it on I keep boot looping. Am I stuck or is there still hope?
