Wow! Looks like he's off to a great start. I depend on my phone too much to try it until it's got a few more bugs worked out, but groovy!

Ok, so I tried giving this a shot and surprise, surprise bootloop.
I followed the instructions here on XDA: [Rom] Newts OnE XxX RC 2.1 *LIVE!!!* (Sense 4 ICS 4.0.3) 4/17/2012 - xda-developers

**Installation instructions for rom**
-download rom
-copy to sd
-reboot to recovery
-wipe data, system, and dalvik
-Flash rom

**Installation of boot.img**
-download boot.img
-copy to pc to your fastboot directory
-cd to the directory
-type these commands
-"fastboot flash boot boot.img"

However, I found a flashable boot.img that I flashed through recovery (I hate having to use my laptop to flash everything so I try to stay as Windows-free as possible).
Flashable boot zip: Flashable Boot Image for One XXX

So this is what I did EXACTLY:
1. loaded three files to my sd card
NeWts-OnE-XxX-RC2-Signed.zip
NeWts_OnE_XxX_update_RC2.1.zip
Sense4_boot.img
2. loaded the flashable boot zip to my sd card
Sense_4_Flashable_Boot.zip
3. deleted Sense4_boot.img
4. rebooted to hboot, launched Amon Ra.
5. wiped data
6. wiped system
7. wiped dalvik cache
8. loaded zip from sd card: NeWts-OnE-XxX-RC2-Signed.zip
9. flashed Sense4_boot.img
10. phone booted to hboot, hit power button, asked if I wanted to update, hit yes.
11. rebooted phone. Fired up but reboots.
12. pulled battery and sd card, deleted PH98IMG.zip
13. posted here, looking for input. What am I not getting? I posted on the Mikmik asking why there are three downloads, i.e. what is the patch for but have heard nothing back yet.

Ah, I left a step out. In between flashing the rom and the boot image I flashed main version low.

did you flash the old firmware patch? it doesnt specify,but i believe newts rom requires new firmware,or the old firmware patch if youre still on GB firmware.

you needed a step "8.5" to flash old firmware patch. after flashing rom,prolly before flashing main version low.

last and not least,make sure you follow this install note:
when you get booted you need to go into settings and turn off animations or it will freeze up

if you haent done that,it may be causing you issue as well.

what troubles are you having with your backup? are you trying to restore from a permanent recovery again?

if youre getting errors,make sure your battery is charged. a low battery will casue prollems making and restoring backups. it will charge in a permanently installed amon,so you can put it in recovery and plug it in for awhile if you need to.

once the phone is charges,launch amon from fastboot again,and do full wipe:
-data/factory reste
-cache
-dalvik cache
-system
-boot

if you do not get any errors,then restore your backup. unless it has somehow become corrupt,it should restore and boot fine.

remember,a permanent amon is unable to install kernels. this applies to flashing new roms,and restoring backups.

The new version of this rom (RLS1) is just amazing. I feel like this needs to be repeated throughout all android forums. Between this and the amazing Ineffabilis Deus, I am seriously loving my Rezound.

No, it doesn't specify...I have to remember this too when attempting to flash an ICS Rom

Agreed - other than some minor irritations it's running flawlessly. I have tried all the Sense 4 ROM's and nothing compares to this.

I wish the nonsense between the Devs would stop so they could concentrate on developing rather than pecking away at each other. The whole thing just seems silly to me! Give credit where credit is due. If the ROM is good, people will download it, use it and donate!

Yeah, I agree the bickering is really sad to see. That's why when I'm on an HTC device I tend to mainly stick with themikmik -- the best devs are on that site, and it's a much better atmosphere.

Now once we get our official ICS update and source is released, I will have to spend more time peaking back at xda, since I do like messing with aosp and MIUI...

Mik and Newt are the true devs, I am not trying to start a flame war but it is the truth. Basically if you download someone elses roms you are just downloading a themed version of newts rom.

I stick to themikmik.com much nicer environment than xda, plus you get the true blue roms.

I successfully flashed this rom. I love it too, but noticed that I am unable to change the ringtone. Is this a known issue or is it just me?

I have no problem changing ring tones under any circumstance. Maybe a bad flash?

well,i dont know that thats a completely accurate statement. chingy does seem to have a good source for leaks for htc devices,but seems to me the first to provide a rooted,deodex 100% stock rom from an RUU is scrossler. most devs are using this as a base for vigor build/sense 3.6 roms.

while i am thuroughly enjoying newts inc 4g port and will readily admit he obviously has dev talent,there are some reasons i personally dont put him and/or chingy up on a pedestal.

al23,i dotn have any issues changing ringtones either. maybe redownload,check md5,and full wipe and reflash.

sense 4 is neat,but im still longing for some good ol' AOSP

That's an older version, latest is rls1.

Also, newt just posted that he's close to releasing a new version with the help of mik and with tweaks built by tommytomatoe (anyone here from the EVO will know why I'm so excited about that collaboration).

well, I wasn't really talking about any of the devs from themikmik...more talking about certain ones on xda who update "their roms" a day after newt updates his.

you can wipe /system(tho most roms have a script that does this)

and if you are planning to re-flash your kernel,then you can also wipe /boot

Thanks. I flashed it successfully (I am loving flashing the kernel via PC. It avoids so many issues). As for the ROM: hate it. Hate the.... Just kidding. This ROM is truly a thing of beauty. There are one or two very minor things I see, but I am running ICS with sense 4. I can do everything I need to and want to do on the phone. I have nothing to complain about.

your prollem is flashing the GB patch before you flashed rls 3.1.2

you do not need to flash rls3. just 3.1.2,then the GB patch,then the kernel.

if you have successfully flashed the boot image,then you might get away with just flashing the rom and patch. if not,youll need to flash the boot image again.

i strongly recomend fastboot booting your recovery. that way the seperate kernel flash is not needed.

-fastboot boot amon
-full wipe,flash rls 3.1.2
-flash GB patch
-reboot

the rebooting is a classic sign of mismatched firmware,i.e, not flashing the old firmware patch.

So I'm thinking about flashing this Rom. I'm still S-ON and thought I was going to take the jump to S-Off, but I can't quite decide if I want to yet.

I am still on the GB firmware. I just want to make sure I've got everything straight on the install process if I'm still S-ON.

1. fastboot boot Amon Ra
2. Wipe Cache/Dalvik/Factory reset/boot
3. Flash the ROM.

4. Here is where I'm lost. I know I need to flash the old firmware patch, and I need to flash the ROM's kernel. Is that the boot image part? Which order, old firmware patch and THEN kernel, or Kernel (bootimage?) and THEN old firmware?

Thanks!

YOUR #1... "1. fastboot boot Amon Ra"

i have only said about a million times now on various threads that if you fastboot boot amon,it can write the kernel and you s-on guys will not have to flash the kernel seperately.

it will work,i promise.

so if the rom scripts are set up for the s-off crowd for recovery to install the kernel,or if you are restoring a backup, if you fastboot boot amon,you will not have to falsh seperately.

all you have to do is:
1. fastboot boot Amon Ra
2. Wipe Cache/Dalvik/Factory reset/boot
3. Flash the ROM.
4. flash old firmware patch

thats it... no need to make it more complicated than that.

if you want to install the kernel anyway,becasue youre using a permanent recovery,you think im making the whole thing up,or whatever other reason( ),it doesnt really matter when you install the kernel,it just needs installed sometime before you boot. however,the most logical order to me would be:
1. boot Amon Ra
2. Wipe Cache/Dalvik/Factory reset/boot
3. Flash the ROM.
4. flash old firmware patch
5. flash kernel
especially if youre installing the the kernel as a PH98IMG becasue you are not hooked to a PC.

since you are reluctant to become s-off,id pretty highly recomend you to try it:
1. fastboot boot Amon Ra
2. Wipe Cache/Dalvik/Factory reset/boot
3. Flash the ROM.
4. flash old firmware patch

and see for yourself it works. it may sway youy one dirction or the other to know that you can install roms just as easily as if you were s-off simply by fastboot booting amon

it will work,i promise.

so if the rom scripts are set up for the s-off crowd for recovery to install the kernel,or if you are restoring a backup, if you fastboot boot amon,you will not have to falsh seperately.

all you have to do is:
1. fastboot boot Amon Ra
2. Wipe Cache/Dalvik/Factory reset/boot
3. Flash the ROM.
4. flash old firmware patch

Scotty one thing I never do is doubt you! I was just confused. about the whole process. Here goes flashing Newts.

I'm a bit nervous about the whole S-Off thing mostly because I don't have the money to replace my phone if I brick it, and you've said over and over that being S-ON makes it nearly impossible to brick a phone. Thanks for all your help.

Again, I am curious though, what is the boot.img part? It is listed a couple times, but I'm not sure what it is and I can't seem to find anywhere that says.

thats completely understandable,and yes,an s-on hboot is nearly impossible to brick,since the phone is protecting the radio and hboot. dont let s-off care you tho,you will not brick an s-off phone if youre careful. you just need to be religious about md5 verifying any hboot flash that contains an hboot,and/or radios. as long as you use s off resposibly,it actually gives a greater amount of safety,since you can flash any ruu that exists,youre not limited to what youre on or newer like if your s-on,and you can install an eng hboot to give yourself extra fastboot commands. both things give more options for restoring a "soft bricked" phone.

Again, I am curious though, what is the boot.img part? It is listed a couple times, but I'm not sure what it is and I can't seem to find anywhere that says.
the boot image is the kernel. its listed for the s-on crowd that doesnt know(or just doesnt believe ) the fastboot boot recovery trick,and needs to manually install the kernel. as long as you either fastboot boot amon,or are s-off,you dont need to worry about the boot image part of the install directions

i wish! the cm9 roms that currently exist dont have working RIL,so no voice.text or data

closest we can get to AOSP currently is senseless roms like slimrom,cleanrom dev edition,or conrom desensed.

coming out riught with the gnex and ICS,all attentions have been to ICS. AOSP gingerbread was no longer a big deal so no one has even bothered with cm7 or AOSP GB. GB is old news,lol.

supposedly someone on xda has gotten voice and 1x data working on AOSP,so hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel

That's too bad! I loved my cm7 droid x.

Question for you all. Anyone had any luck with the mikmik settings and hardware keys? Seems no matter what I change in there it doesn't affect anything.

i havent even messed with them,lol...

it wouldnt surprise me that they are not really working yet,i believe emphasis at this point is simply in getting the rom smoothed out and functional. keep watching and hopefully there will be new releases where those settings will work

For the 3.2.1 update (the 11 MB file), this can be flashed immediately after the main file (the RLS 3.1.2) and before the firmware patch?

yup,that should work fine.

for you s-on guys that want to flash and and are allready on 3.1.2,you may want to re-flash the fimrware patch after flashing the rom update. or just be prepared to return to recovery and reflash it if you flash the rom update and your sd card disapears

I seem to be having an "issue" that I'm not sure about. My syncing data icon seems to always be on. Anybody else noticed this? Is this killing my battery with constant background sync?

mine used to be on fairly often as well... id say it prolly is doing something,how much it may be affecting your battery life im not sure.

now i just keep sync off,and manually sync if i add a contact or calander event. if you dont have alot of stuff that you need to automatically sync,you might try keeping it off.

I get a lot of email. Manual sync of that would be annoying. It's weird it wasn't on until sometime today and now it won't shut off. Also, it used to spin I think, and now its not moving.

Hmmm...so I installed Friday or Saturday. Realized Sunday afternoon sync was off. Turned it back on. That's when the logo came on. Tried reboots, shutting sync off, airplane mode, etc. Etc. Nothing changed. Last night went to bed with it on. This morning it appears to work like its supposed to, only showing when something is syncing. I'm guess maybe it just took 3 days to get everything synced? Weird...

I'm liking this ROM, but I don't see the wireless tether option that is touted as being included. I see Verizon's hotspot app, but I assume that is still tied to their pricing, correct? I also see a post on the mikmik site that suggests that the boot.img file must be flashed for the tethering to work, but I did not flash that file per Scotty's advice when using a temporary recovery. Do I need to flash the extra file in order to get tethering working and/or do I need to download a 3rd party tethering app to make that work?

EDIT: I read the OP on this thread and it solved my problem.

i strongly recomend fastboot booting your recovery. that way the seperate kernel flash is not needed.

-fastboot boot amon
-full wipe,flash rls 3.1.2
-flash GB patch
-reboot

the rebooting is a classic sign of mismatched firmware,i.e, not flashing the old firmware patch.

trying to figure out what exactly is meant by "fastboot boot amon"

Amon is the recovery, amon ra. You'll need to read through scottys noon friendly root guide start to finish (sticky on this forum) and it should give you a better understanding

been on cleanrom de for many months now but kinda miss sense. guess i'll stick to just flashing the extra kernal. don't know if I am even going to change my cleanrom tho, just trying to wrap my head around how to do it in case i want to..lol

Just installed this one & it's really sweet Not much different fr. the stock GB/3.6 one but it's smoother (no glitches or snags when scrolling) & my temp.'s been pretty low compared to the stock one. Battery life... we'll still have to see over the weekend. Will have a chance to test it out when I see the ex in-laws & know f'shure won't get a chance to leave 'em W/e sucks already.

Is it all right to delete the 3 zip files that we moved to the root of our sd cards? The ROM is like 600mb If not, that's fine! & does the Pandora widget work? For sum reason, I can't get it to work. I'll try again.

But so far, so good & this is coming fr. the neophytes of all noobs of ROM installers lol.
