just as a quick update to everyone, me and chiwen have been going back and forth over whether or not the bootloader was locked like teh vzw model.



i think i have proven my point ;P (as in you can boot custom kernels/recoveries, there is no lock on booting stuff)

This rom is in testing phase. Hope you made a backup but even if you didn't there is an unbricking method. Read this thread.

Testing some things, but give the .tar a try. But for future reffs never flashing anything without making a backup first, plus read the OP = Original Post as it states this is a alpha build, work in progress project.

I'm making you a backup off my phone using TWRP v2.3.1.1 so you can download it to your pc and move it to your external sd card.

So you will need to install TWRP v2.3.1.1 for this to work, but this will take time to upload cause this is a big file.

What do you mean by failed?
Did Odin fail half way through? Did it finish and say fail?
Or did it not open at all? Depending on which, this may help me see what's the dilio...
