Default How to load Zefie's custom kernels (for Dummies)

Thought I would put together this step-by-step guide on how to load Zefie's custom kernels for those newbies out there that are as clueless as I was/am. There are so many threads and posts to sift through, so I thought I would try to compile it into one post for easy access.

This is by no means a professional or even semi-professional document. I am not a programmer, nor can I tell you how to fix your phone if you screw it up. This is just how I personally got the kernels to work on my Moment. I am simply taking bits of information and instructions from many other posts and threads to compile into one (hopefully) useful post. There may be some things that I do not explain correctly, simply because my knowledge of this stuff is very limited.

I will try to provide as many links as possible so you can read the important information from those (like Zefie) who have been working on it.

So I guess this is just a guide to try to point you in the right direction. I know it personally took me a LOT of time and energy trying to figure this out on my own. I hope this helps you.

*Zefie has done an incredible job with these Kernels - thanks also to numus for all the help along the way (I'm sure you got tired of my many questions!).

--------DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK--------

1. First of all, visit this thread http://www.samsungmomentforum.com/rooting/time-for-the-first-custom-'rom'-(well-kernel)/ to read up on what these kernels do. In short, Zefie has developed custom kernels that make small tweaks and adjustments to some settings in the Samsung Moment. These kernels are named as ZE01, ZE02, ZE03, ZE04, ZE05, and ZE06 (ZE06 is the most recent, released 12/31/09). Loading ZE06 will give you all the updates from previous 01-05 kernels. These kernels will also "root" your phone (giving you access to make additional programming changes...the only changes I have messed with are removing those pesky stock applications that Sprint/Samsung loaded on the phone. I believe there are also some 3rd party apps out there that will not run unless your phone is rooted).

2. Once you have a good understanding of what these kernels might do for your phone, and if you still want to move forward with this, visit this link http://fileserv.co.cc/zefie/android/samsung_moment/ from your PC where you will need to download several items (listed below).

3. Once you click on the above link, scroll down and click roms, then custom, then “SPH-M900_ZE06_KERN.zip” which is the newest kernel. I recommend downloading it to your desktop so you can quickly locate it. When the download is completed, you will need to extract the .tar file to your desktop. Do nothing else with this file at this time.

4. Next, go back to http://fileserv.co.cc/zefie/android/samsung_moment/ on your PC and click Odin Multi Downloader. Do nothing else with this at this time.

5. Next, go to this link http://www.samsungmomentforum.com/rooting/odin-random-messing-with-things-new-screen/?action=dlattach;attach=95 on your PC to download a file called Moment.ops. Do nothing else with this file at this time.

6. Next, go back to http://fileserv.co.cc/zefie/android/samsung_moment and click SamsungMomentUSBDriversWindows.zip. These are the drivers you might need when you connect your Moment to your PC (normally, Windows should find the right drivers, but just in case...you have these).

--You have now downloaded everything that you will need in order to proceed with installation--

7. Power off your phone. Once powered completely off, hold volume down, camera, and end button at the same time – keep holding until Downloading… appears. You are now in Download Mode.

8. On your PC, open the Odin Multi Downloader ZIP that you previously downloaded and extract only V 3.98 to your PC desktop.

9. After extracting, right click on Odin Multi Downloader V 3.98 file and click Run as Administrator. When Odin opens, you will see a bunch of white empty boxes.

10. Now, plug your phone (which should still be in download mode) into your PC via USB. When you do this, the top left white empty box in Odin should now be yellow and say Detected. You cannot proceed unless you see this.

11. In Odin, under Option check the box that says One Package. The other two boxes should already be checked (leave them checked).

12. Under Select OPS click the OPS button. Find the Moment.ops file that you downloaded and click Open.

13. Next, click the One Package button. Find the ZE06.tar file that you downloaded and click Open.

14. Click Start – the process should only take a minute or two to run. If it gets stuck and doesn’t do anything, disconnect USB cable, pull battery on phone, and restart in Download Mode again. Reconnect USB cable. Try hitting Start in Odin again. It should take the second time.

15. When it is finished installing, the phone will power cycle and reboot in normal mode. You are good to go!

Best of luck to you. Again, I – nor any other person – is responsible for your phone.

If I get enough requests, I may put together a similar guide for loading the Android SDK, specifically the ADB so you can adb shell into the phone to delete the stock apps.

I would think it would work with 64. Give it a try and see what happens. Will probably take me a few days to get the other guide together.

Happy New Year!

Also i have been helping people via Gtalk to do this... alot of people are having driver issues. If it wont recognize your phone, for some reason the driver installed wrong. Uninstall Samung New PC Studio (make sure it is NEW PC STUDIO and not PC STUDIO) uninstall all the associated drivers, and re-install. It make take a couple of tries to work. Also make sure USB Debugging is ticked on on your phone, and Samsung NEW PC STUDIO is NOT running in the background, and PDANet is NOT running in the background. Any questions add me on Gtalk.

what do the custom kernels let you do? install newer versions of Android? If so, I'd love to see a screenshot of a Moment running 2.0.

Very nice man, best tutorial I have seen so far. Please continue so I can remove all the pesky apps draining the battery and using resources so bad that my keyboard lags like no other!

Well after reading the last 2 hours and deleting and reinstalling all the drivers I give up.
When in download mode my phone refuses to be recognized in Windows. It sees it as an unknown device then sometimes it sees it as a Samsung Component very odd

BTW, if Zefie's found a way to get persistent root, does that mean the ability to upgrade to other versions of Android ourselves is close?

If you read through the thread going on at samsungmomentforum.com you'll see the practical outcome of a lot of these changes. I don't blame Zefie for keeping it to technical... there's a difference between saying that X change SHOULD have Y effect, and claiming that it actually does.

Huh, I'm not sure what I'm trying to say is cleared up by that... but I don't feel like thinking about it any longer right now lol.

huh. is admin access important when opening odin? All I own is a Mac, but I use my work laptop to do anything i need a PC for. Obviously I don't have admin access to my work laptop (my company is very cool about stuff but not THAT cool) and I've never bothered getting any version of windows running on my mac since I've always had my laptop. I need to know if I should bother proceeding.

Also, having the same problem as Hotled... I've connected my phone to the PC before and it's worked just fine, but in download mode it sees it as an unrecognized USB device... when I try to direct it to the drivers, it doesn't want to use them. I haven't played with it for more than a few minutes now though, so I'm going to keep at it.

After much trial and many errors, I've finally gotten Odin to detect my device. However, after I load the OPS file and the Kern package, with the One Package box checked, and press Start, nothing seems to happen. I've left it for as long as 12 minutes. In the message window, the last line is setup connection... but it never moves off of that. I've tried 5 or 6 times now.

Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

You aren't going to see any visual changes, but for a complete list of changes check out the wiki:

The instructions above worked well for me once I enabled the 'usb debugging' in settings(apps,development). Or was it the other way around? I also had to try it twice each time it worked, on second try I pulled the battery but left Odin running. A few times I had opened Odin without running as admin in my haste...lol. I look forward to learning how to remove the pre-installed apps when you post(please do!!!) Thank you to all who have made this come together

so it won't work without running as admin, huh? Eh, I don't have any easy way to do that. Maybe someday I'll get parallels or boot camp running on my mac.

Make sure you are holding everything down during the samsung progress bar.. It will switch into the downloader after the progress bar is complete but before the sprint logo

Hey Hotled, how did you get your PC to finally see it after all your issues? I'm in the same situation.

As for my other problem with admin access... looks like I was wrong and my work account IS set up for admin, so I'm GTG there.

I was having the same problem, I can get move music and pictures over easy but I just can't seem to get it recognized when I plug it in when I've got debug mode checked or the phone is in downloading mode.

If it helps, using Windows 7 64-bit and I've tried to do it on another computer running the same windows and another computer running Windows XP. No luck.

I think I'll survive, I've not had a problem yet. I've just made killing apps a habit.

It took me a couple of times of playing with it. How did you load the drivers? Did you use the USB driver zip file or load New PC Studio? I had to load new PC studio in Vista 2 compatibility mode. Make sure you run Odin as administrator.

That worked fine to use the phone in disk mode, definitely does not work when I'm in download mode though. I've only ever used the drivers from the custom package on Zefie's FTP site... never installed PC studio or the like. WinXP here.

There's been multiple conversations in this thread, Win7 isn't the only thing we're talking about... I'm still fishing in hopes that someone has an XP solution haha. For some of us, XP is all we've got. Personally I'd never pay for a microsoft OS (especially for a laptop that's not even mine), so I'll keep my outdated XP, lol.

I finally got my system to see the phone in download mode... here's what I did.

1. attached my phone while it was on and in the normal Android OS mode
2. located my phone in device manager (under disk drives, I think)
3. went to properties (right click) for my phone, browsed to the driver tab, clicked "uninstall"
4. system prompted for a restart to complete removal. I unplugged my phone and allowed the system to restart
5. installed NEW Samsung PC Studio from a DL I found via Teh Googles (I had never used this in the past, previously I had browsed my phone's SD card via the drivers in that zip package that's floating around and on Zefie's FTP site)
6. booted my phone into download mode and plugged it into the computer. My PC immediately saw it and installed the correct drivers
7. Odin was able to correctly see my phone now, so proceeded as above.
8. upon reset of the phone after the new kernel, the PC also installed additional drivers for SD drive mode

Hopefully this helps someone else in this situation, there seemed to be a lot of us!

Oh, and after all that, I forget what should work better with the new kernel lol. Oh well, I'll figure it out, and probably uninstall some of the stock apps in the next day or two. Hooray!!

Haha thanks bud. I've got some serious troubleshooting skills... I used to do tech support for SONY's PC line... which was a pretty wild job because if the caller was willing to let us charge them $20 for third-party stuff, we'd have to take our best stab at trying to support ANYTHING. Needless to say, I learned a lot and developed some good creative problem solving skills too. Currently I'm a Technical Project Manager for a web support company... which is great because I get to be the guy who translates between our systems people/developers and the rest of the company... so not only do I have to know tech talk but I have to have some decent communication skills. I really enjoy the problem solving, I've been considering going back for programming for a while now... but still on the fence haha. I should really pick up a book and do what I've always done... teach myself!

Even easier agent, just install PC Studio.

I did that and the rest was a snap. Noticing that navigation is much faster and smoother with ZE08.

well I wasn't absolutely sure if PC studio would try to overwrite the drivers if it saw that they were already there... and I didn't feel like going through the whole thing again to find out haha. Now where were you BEFORE I figured this out? lol.

Can anyone vouch for performance increases by loading the custom kernel?

Unfortunately, I figured that out maybe 10 minutes before my post. I hadn't tried flashing but was curious and it took me over an hour to figure out the PC Studio thing. None of the step by steps for dummies even talk about needing pc studio for XP!

yeah it seems that maybe it's working for some people to just use the driver pack that zefie provides? Or maybe that's only the Win7 users. Not sure really. Hopefully our pain has helped others at least? lol

The Win 7 users apparently get drivers via windows update. I could have sworn that was an XP option but didn't see it for some reason.
