Default Utimate M835 customization guide

ITS FINALLY STARTED!

first things first.....

FAQ:

a few questions i have gotten PM'ed to me..

1. Rooting can be done with gingerbreak 2.1 but you CANNOT UNROOT.

2. Metro PC's apps can all be removed with a root file explorer (I used a paid app called root explorer) simply go into the "cust" folder and delete any unwanted apps from the app folder. Reboot afterwords.

3. bootstrapsound.oog (booting sound) is in system>media>audio (you can find custom boot sounds through Google)

4. Bootanimation.zip (startup animation) is in cust>metropcs same deal as bootsound.

5. The audio thing only runs when you use headphones and is optimized for earbuds.

6. Yes, once rooted you can tether using wifi or USB.

7. If your screen is twitching out just tap the power button and unlock the phone. Dunno why it happens but happens more in humid weather.

8.Yes, there are two speakers on the exterior of the phone for stereo speaker play.

9. The light is a battery indicator. Green, yellow, red, dead.

10. There is no cwm as far as I know but I am working on it as well as I can. If you have Linux and are willing to help please pm me.

That's it for now

ROOTING AND REMOVING BLOATWARE (METRO APPS)

Rooting the m835 is a charm using gingerbreak 1.2 found here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=578771&d=1303829207
simply install the .apk (save it to your sd card and open it)

note: you must first open your settings and go to Application settings and enable unknown sources and usb debugging

after you root install a root exporer (search market, i only know of 1 that does the whole job, no problem its actually called root explorer) you can use it to look in the system>app and cust>metropcs>app directories and delete unwanted apps. (will post exact apps safe to remove/replace soon)

you can also use app backup programs (i use titanium backup but i know there are others.

Anybody know where the MetroNavigator apk is hiding? It's not in the "cust" folder where all the other metro bloat was. I couldn't find it or a couple other apps (namely Richpad and Documents to Go) via adb or root explorer. Thanks in advance

You download it, put it on your SD card "as is", boot into Recovery, hit "apply update from sdcard" and the update.zip should be there as an option.

To boot into Recovery, hold down the Volume up, Call, and Power button at the same time.

Btw Tokenpoke, I see several errors in the typing and code text. xD

When I try to install the stock ROM it doesn't do anything when I press apply update from SD card. I put the UPDATE.ZIP in the SD card just like you said. Why isn't it loading and do you have any suggestions on how to fix it?

You may have to use CWM to install the update

When you open root explorer you need to toggle r/o to r/w which is basically taking you from read only to read write access then you have the power to do whatever you want with whatever you choose on the phone /sd card.

If you have 2 phones you can copy the accidentally deleted. APk and move it to the broken phone.

Only other option is a stock restore.

I'll let PlayfulGod know bout the link, looks like it brokeh.

Scratch that, looks like you can only use Mate35 or CM7-M835, the stock rom's been removed, not a true one I believe.

I would appreciate any help anyone can provide. I'm a noob with modding phones but a buddy of mine from work advised me to use the gingerbreak 1.2 with titanium backup method. After about 4 days of fighting with it I gave up, I could never get titbu to delete the apps, ALWAYS told me that it couldn't find the apk file. I've now tried 2 other methods, z4 root and something else, I don't recall now. When I tried z4 the phone was rooted, z4 told me so. I undid the root and tried to root again with no success. Tried installing gingerbreak again and the phone wouldn't let me. Ive now factory restored the phone, funny that Superuser still showed up, and I've reinstalled gingerbreak 1.2 CAN ANYBODY HELPPPP!!!!!! lol, thx in advance!

Get root explore. I think its the only thing that will change the files to write. So you can delete them and all the metro apps are in the cust. Or cast folder I can't remember what its called

gingerbreak + root explore all you need to do what you want..

Nailed it right there.

Make sure you get the latest version on GB. There's a new Superuser app so net connection is a must.

Talking May I add a Rom to your thread Toke?

I have been "playing around" in the kitchen and have a different looking stock rom with a few bells and whistles.

Don't wanna high-jack

Ghost commander works really well, is free, and allows changing mounts to r/w

Open up root explorer, click on 'cust', click on 'metropcs', click on 'us', and then click on 'app' for starters. I deleted everything there except Metro Backup, which I use occasionally.

when you see something that says \cust or \whatever, all that means is that the \whatever is a folder that you need to navigate to. so in this case, if you follow my instructions, you'll end up at \cust\metropcs\us\app simply by clicking cust, then metropcs, then us, then app.

make sense? =)

there's a button at the top of the screen where it will say R/O. if you tap it, it will toggleto R/W(this takes you from "read only" to "read write" access so that you can change whatever you choose on the phone/sd card's memory space). You need to be in R/W mode in order to delete the .apk files.
