Do you have a link for 1.8.7. I can only find links for 1.8.1, 1.8.8, 1.8.9, and 1.8.10.

How are you so sure of that after such a short period of use? I don't seem to be having any major issues however performance isn't what I expected but this is my first root.

How am I sure? The spontaneous reboots that apparently everyone using 1.8.10 but you are experiencing. Even noobnl now notes that 1.8.10 rc1 is unstable and includes a link for 1.8.7.

Radioactive FroYo ROM v1.8.10 RC 1 **9.2 MFLOP** **Moment-Acclaim Hybrid**

A couple of reboots are not unheard of with JIT, but this rom is rebooting like the beta JIT based roms that were around in the dd03 days. I'm a bit surprised there hasn't been an update yet, but considering that noobnl's not using a Moment anymore it may be understandable.

Aside from the one initial reboot, 1.8.10 has been perfectly stable for me. No battery issues (left it off the charger overnight...still had ~40% charge after 15 hours, including 45 minutes or so of Pandora).

So far I'm happy with 1.8.10.

**Edit** I spoke too soon. There's a random reboot. That's what I get, I suppose.

**Edit2** And there's the runaway process. Seems to happen the most after a random reboot. Awesome.

One thing I learned from this ROM is that if things don't work well the first time try re-flashing it over itself a couple of times.

Without going into too much detail, root means you have the most base access to the OS, allowing you to alter any file. You must have root access to flash an alternate rom. Rooting the device used to be a separate activity and usually had to be applied after every flash. Virtually all the roms out now include root access and usually an alternate recovery, making the whole phone hacking process easier.

Whatever happened to the Dearmas guy? I know he got into a tiff with SDX developers, but then found a website where he was publishing his ROMS. Now I see that's disappeared too.

He was back on SDX for a bit trying to hem things up and continue sharing work. Not sure what else happened. His site is still around. Just not as much activity as before.

He came back briefly to SDX but brought his inimitable belligerent Dearmas style along, so it didn't go particularly well. His site is still up and apparently flourishing. He's been AWOL for a couple of weeks and people there are champing at the bit for Interceptor v7. There were even rumors of his death, but it was posted that he's dealing with some personal issues and will be back.

That's good, but it's really annoying when the EVDO and WiFi keep switching on this phone not to mention the random Airplane Mode bug. I can't wait for the Epic 4G to come out. It supposedly fixed these issues.

Sadly, I've read some reports that the Epic has a GPS radio that isn't terribly sensitive, much like the Moment. I'm hoping that this turns out not to be true. Going to wait a bit after the Epic comes out to decide if I upgrade. This ROM makes the phone run well enough that I think I can wait until some 3.0 devices start coming out around the holidays.

I've been following this issue closely and it will determine my choice between an Evo or Epic. If you want to stay up to date, check out the captivate forum on this site - there are several gps threads. Hopefully samsung will release a fix. The Epic is an otherwise awesome phone.

It sounds like Samsung is using the same gps setup they used in the Moment and why not? They insisted nothing is wrong with the Moment's gps receiver (actually, I read their silence on the issue to be insisting). I expect a half hearted software update that partially fixes the issue (cl14 anyone?) to cut off any bad press that may hurt sales. Following that.....nothing....ever. From what I'm seeing, the Galaxy S is the same superb navagation device as the Moment which is to say lousy. And the Galaxy S buyers will learn the lesson everyone who buys a Samsung device learns, that Samsung releases a device, provides a bare minimum of support till the replacement for that device is ready for launch and promply forgets said device ever existed. Unfortunately, too many of us get smitten by the new devices specs and hardware, develop amnesia and repeat the whole process again. I look at the Epics specs and I want it, but I know deep down that if I buy it I will be deeply disappointed by Samsung again. As it stands now, every Samsung gps equiped Android smartphone should come with a complimentary Garmin PNA.

I don't know if it's the different Moment I just got or the 1.8.7 version of this Rom, but my battery life is great now. My phone is going on 23 hours with no charge. Admiditly I only used my phone between lightly - medium yesterday, but for the most part that's all I do. I've never been able to last more than about 15 hours at the max before having to charge my phone because it was in the red or yellow before I went to bed. It's still in the green right now. I'm gonna see how it goes with a full day of work today since I only worked half yesterday, but I don't get good reception at work so I know that drains my battery and usually by lunch I plug it in because it's in the yellow. But even on days I don't work I still only get about 15 hours.

same here. flashed 1.8.7 yesterday, charged last night and spent 20 minutes on the bus this morning reading kindle. Battery indicator still shows a full charge. That never happens. Usually the indicator goes down one level after being off the charge for 5 minutes.

My phone just now suggested to plug in the charger. I hope it's always like this in case I ever need it too. I will always plug in my phone at night, but would be nice to know it can last over 24 hours.

I have been running 1.8.11 for about a day now with no random reboots, or even CDMA lockup.

I knew I shouldn't have posted anything. Two random reboots in the last hour. Admittedly, I was trying the things that cause it the most problem for me: Pandora and Tricroder. Pandora worked great for and hour or so, closed it, came back to it after a little while and it rebooted. Tricorder keeps getting the flashing screen and a java error, but mostly in ACO sensor mode. That mode had issues before this ROM was installed.

So, I'm using Interceptor v6 now. Do I just flash this on top of it? Clear Dalvik cache first, or after? Can/should I run the update.zip for customizing it?

It is strongly recommended by the guys at SDX that you go back to stock rooted before flashing Dearmas's stuff or vice versa. I'm of the mind to flash to stock anytime I change from one devs rom to another anyway. I use recovery system backup so that should I not like the new rom, it's easy to flash back to the previous and restore the system like nothing ever happened.

So, I've backed up in recovery. As I would with 1.8.7/11 if I flashed it. Can I restore the recoveries back and forth without reflashing to stock?.
I updated launcher pro today(Interceptor v6 ROM) and have experienced numerous reboots-- particularly when I had my phone in a car mount that is pushing both buttons on the right edge. I have had my phone in this mount before without haveing the reboot problem. I am also experiencing constant CDMA lockups both in and out of the mount. I had have had this occaisionally before even without using WIFI (as a matter of fact, I don't think I've ever had that after turning off WIFI) but never like today. I restored a backup from 7-25 this afternoon and have not had any more reboots since. But I also noticed the version of Launcher pro is the same as I updated to this morning???? Does that make any sense?
I question again, if I flashed 1.8.7/11 (is 11 more stable than 8-10 have been?) would it make any sense to use a update.zip custom ROM?

My personal experience version 1.87 has been by far the best for me so I'm staying with this one.But I'm very happy the guys behind this are still coming up with upgrades.Just a heads up when I first got 1.87 I did notice that my battery life was better than I ever got but somehow overnight the battery would be completely dead in the morning when I woke up.I figure it was the key lights app,it seems that I was getting text messages overnight and this app would drain my battery completely.I remove the app since I don't really needed and getting pretty much two days of battery life with moderate use.

1.8.11 has been pretty stable for me so far. It may even suffer less (but not none) lockups when compared to previous roms, though I really can't be certain. It certainly dfoesn't have the reboot problems of 1.8.8/9/10. I'm still rebooting after a wifi session.

I personally wouldn't use a sytem backup when going between different roms. I had a problem with the power off function of the end button not working. When a hard reset didn't fix it, I flashed to stock (issue gone), then back to noobnl's (issue gone) and restored the system b/u via recovery (issue back). It seems the recovery level b/u can bring a whole lot of baggage with it.

Do you mean you extracted Deamas's custom theamed launcher pro from his rom to use on another rom? I would only use his stuff with his stuff and use the official version from the market for everything else. He doesn't play well with others.

Does anyone have issues with this ROM and Handcent? It takes 10sec to open Handcent and another 10sec to use it. Not sure if its this ROM or [Han] Classic_Noir for 2.1 de03 theme that I flashed. Everything else works fine.

I've had issues like this with handcent lately. It's happened on updated 2.1, and this rom as well as others. I hit the icon it goes to a black screen for 10 seconds then finally loads up. I was wondering if it had something to do with launcher pro.

I don't think it has to do with launcher pro (for me) cause I'm using the stock launcher. I guess I will go back to 1.8.7 and see what happens from there.

The man works fast. Hopefully this cures the random reboot.

I reflashed to stock w/recovery 3.0.8 after random reboots and other issues with 1.8.11. Trying Amstel Rom 2.0. It seems to be very stable, although you do have to wipe your phone to stock to get the best performance. I guess that's the advice for any ROM these days.

I personally wouldn't use a sytem backup when going between different roms. I had a problem with the power off function of the end button not working. When a hard reset didn't fix it, I flashed to stock (issue gone), then back to noobnl's (issue gone) and restored the system b/u via recovery (issue back). It seems the recovery level b/u can bring a whole lot of baggage with it.

Do you mean you extracted Deamas's custom theamed launcher pro from his rom to use on another rom? I would only use his stuff with his stuff and use the official version from the market for everything else. He doesn't play well with others.
No, I was still using his v6 when the update to launcher pro came thru the market. I was stable before that then all hell broke loose with reboots and lockups. His v7 doesn't use launcher pro.

Can anyone help me with this crap....LOL
I have been trying and trying to flash the phone as per the instructions using the DE03.....
The computer does not see my phone at all.
I have uninstalled all samsung drivers etc...rebooted both phone and computer...checked and usb debugging is unchecked.....
I just don't get it.
Can I use the newest updater and root the phone with this or not?
I may have to just stick with stock 2.1 cause nothing seems to work...

The official Samsung updater that they put out for the 2.1 update? If yes, then no- that updater can not be used to root the phone.

The official Samsung updater that came out when they release the first incremental update (before 2.1) can be used. There is a link to that updater earlier in this thread and links all over the SDX website.

Still unstable. People are complaining of reboots and other issues. I am very happy with Amstel 2.0 ROM which is based on Radioactive 1.8.7.

1.8.7 and 1.8.11 were both too unstable for my liking- too many force closes (on both) and too many random reboots (on 1.8.11).

Didn't try 1.8.12. Am back to 1.7.8 for now.

Yep. Common problem. The theme you installed likely included a 'skinned' calculator that this rom doesn't like.
Possible Solutions:
-Unzip the calculator apk from the rom zip and install just that apk
-Reinstall the rom and before you install the theme over it, delete the calculator apk from the theme zip.

I'm back to 1.8.7 as well -- I tried 1.8.12 but got a lot of random reboots. Bluetooth was turning off randomly as well.

Still, GREAT work. As someone said, it's pretty incredibly that Sprint (with all their resources) can't or isn't willing to make the improvements found in 1.8.x

After transferring the zip file and trying to access it from the recovery mode, after I get the line that says verifying update package, I get E: failed to open /sdcard/update.zip No such file or directory E:signature verification failed installation aborted. Yet Astro file manager sees the file. Any help please?

Are you rooted and running an alternate recovery? If you're trying to flash radioactive, it's not named "update.zip" unless you renamed it.


And.....1.8.13 is up
