Yeah I figured as much. But between the beeps and not being able to see anything it's more of a Pita for me.

I took a screen shot from CTMod 3.6 before upgrading:




/dev/stl13

was my default original.

I am a tiny bit confused, well maybe more than a tiny bit...I want to update 3.6 to 3.68 and know the procedure but I dont want to have to set my whole phone up again (apps, etc). Im just confused as to what is backed up with CWM in the procedure from the OP.

Im under the assumption that the backup CWM does is system files and such and for some reason Im thinking restoring the backup would undo the update (take me back to 3.6) and I think I need an app like Titanium Backup for my apps and settings. Am I correct in this assumption or is the CWM backup all I need to get back my setup after updating to 3.68?

Inc donation BTW, thanks for the efforts put in!

Make a backup, flash 3.68, then in cwm, backup and restore> advanced restore>restore sdext> [your backup]
This SHOULD allow you to update and keep apps and settings without TOO many issues (an app or two might need to be reinstalled but that's about it)

Now i wouldn't try this going from say ct to cm7 or miui to ct. ( or any ROM to another, for that matter)

and i wanted to add one note, if using ssm, your settings will be defaulted, but the apps will stay.

At 1st I looked at Titanium Pro and was shocked at the price, but upon digging deeper I see for 6 bucks its a steal so Im going to grab that as well, but I also want to understand whats going on with the backup in CWM.

You should never restore anything from a mismatched ROM.

Titanium is meant for the "Oh crap, i broke something and I need to put it back to the way it was just before I broke it"

not for: "I'm going to change from CM[n] to CTmod and I'm too lazy to reinstall all my apps"

it's is also not meant for going from Revision x of a mod to revision y

there is a reason the MOD creator made the newer version do a clean install. you should probably trust it.

Sometimes (usually) titanium causes problems when switching roms too. the true FOOL PROOF way is to just redownload then from the market...

Id have to agree with them, coming from that experience,
Using titanium backup, caused me loads of problems, alot of
fc's and issues with framework and services.

I don't use it at all, just CWM for backups and advanced restores

Just, backup in cwm before you start doing stuff. That's the safest way

Default Restoring Apps

I've came up with my own way to restore apps after flashing a new version and thought I might share.. Hope I don't confuse too many people..or I'm not posting something someone has already posted..

I took Blood's ApkInstaller.zip and edited the updater-script to include
apps for data on sd-ext.
Looks like this:
Code:
ui_print("App Restore Pkg");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Installing Data Apps");
show_progress(0.500000, 0);
ui_print("");
ui_print("Mounting /sd-ext");
mount("ext4", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p2", "/sd-ext");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Extracting Files");
package_extract_dir("data", "/sd-ext");
show_progress(0.100000, 0);
unmount("/sd-ext");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Done");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Installing System Apps");
show_progress(0.500000, 0);
ui_print("");
run_program("/sbin/mount", "-t", "auto", "/dev/block/stl12", "/system");
ui_print("");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
show_progress(0.100000, 0);
unmount("/system");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Done");
ui_print("");
ui_print("Flashing Complete");
ui_print("Reboot System Now");
This would only work if you use these settings in KoumaMod settings:



Then i pulled my entire /data/app directory from my phone after i had it all set up like i wanted it to a folder named data on my PC.

then opened the ApkInstaller.zip archive and moved data to the root of the zip folder so the archive now looks like this:
Code:
data
META.INF
system
so now I can put Blood's removed (system) apps that i want into system/app and all my apps from my sd-ext into data/app in the zip and flash.
The reason I decided to go this route is because I had quite a bit of trouble with apps after restoring from Titanium Backup. even when restoring apps without app data.

How to:
put all your apps from /sd-ext/app/ into data/app in the zip
Flash Blood's latest ROM version and reboot into CTMod
set up KoumaMod settings like the screenshot
reboot back into CTmod to make sure Kouma settings are right
reboot into cwm
install zip from sdcard
reboot

Default A minor bug and slow 3g

First off, thanks Bloodawn for CTMod! Awesome Rom!

1) Music player force closes when ever I attempt to re-order tunes in a play list. Happens both with 3.6 and 3.68.

My setup has been: CDMod 3.6 with EJ06 and then with FE16. It is now CDMod 3.68 with FE16. (I totally skipped FA19) KoumaMod has been set to SSM. The force close has happens for me in all of these configurations.

This could very well be a MiuiMusic.apk bug rather than CTMod, but I thought I'd let you know. If it's a hassle for you to chase down the problem, I'd love a recommendation for another free music player to install.

2) Shortly after Kouma put up his FE16 stock Odin images, I changed over from CTMod3.6/EJ06/61007 to CTMod3.6/FE16/61008. Within a couple of days my 3g speeds improved to be consistently "reasonable" for the first time ever. (For me "reasonable" is speedtest result between 200k and 800k, with almost no dropped connections.)

I started getting the update nag a few days ago, so last night I flashed CDMod3.68. After flashing, the 3g speedtest results slowed (~150k) and 3g network is now practically unusable (many connection drops, etc.) Frankly, I don't see how CTMod could have caused this, but the only thing that changed was CTMod version, the date, the weather, and the phase of the moon (a little). Baseband stayed the same at FE16. There is no way I'm over any 2.5G limit. I wouldn't expect boost's phone.tar code to snoop in build.prop for mis-matching version and throttle on that, but I suppose it's possible. It's a mystery to me.

Like I said, probably not caused by CTMod3.68. Maybe the Sprint network has just gone to crap in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Will update the post if it get's better or I get any clues.

Thanks

I can not get my partioned sd card to work right , i partioned it the way the guide says for rooting for dummines , But its not working its saying i have 43 MB of internal memory when i partioned 4gb of my 32 gb sd card for it . Plus maybe i have not done something because i am completely stumped what to do .

Anyone know what i should do to get this to work right because i am trying to add something into system/etc and it will not let me because it says i do not have enough memory .

SSM mode?
you'll still show low numbers for Internal with that. it's just the way it is.
You can free up some memory on the internal if you wipe it. Then SSM mounts over empty directories and doesn't hide away files that eat up internal space

You also have to select data or ssm in the kouma mod settings, and then reboot. Just trying to help cover all the bases

If you did the setup right you would have 150 free and then it goes down slow to where it will stabilize out. Moveing and deleteing stuff now won,t get you much.

I have done it on 2 phones so far, mine went smoothly- able to restore sd-ext and data with minimal settings loss after installing 3.68. I received one final nag message upon rebooting after install, but it hasn't been back since.

My wife's sd-ext and data, however, would not restore, and GPS won't work. Might have to try it again today. The only reason it is that big of a deal is that she plays a lot of games, so I have to go back and use titanium to restore her progress.

It will eventually sort itself out. You can sometimes help it along by rebooting, or switching the time from automatic to manual and back.

yes that is it and looks ok, to me at least. did you go into settings/ctmod settings/then kouma settings/and click data or ssm and then reboot? i asked once but didn't really get an answer and if did sorry.
you may have to wipe what is on the partions and then go into kouma mod and select data or ssm then reboot then put stuff on sd and apps. you need to do that first. and if on 3.68 it defaulted to none to begin with. just trying to help.

check out kouma's sd formatter. you chose ssm and your card has the partitions but they aren't formatted correctly. you need to have the swap partition (dev/block/mmcblk0p3) formatted as ext4 so your dalvik-cache can be mounted there instead of internally.
