Tongue Please Help First Time Rom Installer

Ok so here's where I'm at:

-Rooted Rezound
-Research, Research, Reaserch
-Heads about to explode
-Would love to have some questions just answered so i come here!

Here we go...

1) Do i have to upgrade firmware before installing rom?
2) Is installing an overclocked kernel on said rom as easy as the directions say?
3) How will i know when all is said and done that I've matched all right firmware, roms, kernel, ect....?

Rom i am planning on installing: Team PkmN Collab - Venasaur Rom v3.2.0 from Team BAMF

Thank You and this is my first post here so please be gentle

Here we go...

1) Do i have to upgrade firmware before installing rom?
nope. there are special patches you flash to use GB firmware with ICS roms,wich is what id reccomend that you do. flashing ruus on an s-on phone is permanent,and doesnt always end well.
2) Is installing an overclocked kernel on said rom as easy as the directions say?
what directions are you reading?
the kernel or boot image,can be flashed on an s-on phone by:
1)fastboot booting your recovery from fastboot,and then flashing a zip file scripted for s-off phones in recovery.
2)you can flash the boot image manually,as a PH98IMG file in hboot,or via the fastboot command:
fastboot flash boot bootname.img (where bootname is the exact name of the image youre flashing)

if those things were what your directions said,then yes,its that easy

3) How will i know when all is said and done that I've matched all right firmware, roms, kernel, ect....?
in a nutshell:
GB and ICS use different kernels and firmware.

so since youre on GB firmware,make sure you flash an "old firmware" patch whenever you flash an ICS rom.

if youre using a GB rom,use a GB kernel. if youre using an ICS rom,use an ICS kernel.

the kernel developer should state in his original post what the kernel is compatible with


Rom i am planning on installing: Team PkmN Collab - Venasaur Rom v3.2.0 from Team BAMF

there are a vast number of things that can go wrong,but typically stuck on splash screen=incompatible kernel. i.e. whatever method you tried to use was unsuccessful at installing the kernel(boot image)

idk what your procedure was,but heres what id reccomend:
-place phone in fastboot
-launch recovery with fastboot boot recoveryname.img
-if you were on a working rom,make a backup(prolly doesnt matter now )
-wipe data/factory reset,wipe cache,wipe dalvik cache. optionally,also wipe boot,wipe system
-flash rom
-flash old firmware patch
-reboot

note that you can also restore a backup in place of flashing the rom and firmware patch.

make sure that you understand the difference in booting to a permantly installed recovery,and launching recovery from fastboot,as if you flash roms from youre permanent recovery, the kernels wont flash,making the process more involved. ALWAYS launch recovery from fastboot to flash roms or restore backups

last and not least:
old firmware patch

Oh yeah. As smooth as seal skin. Loving this ics over gingerbread. I do have one more question though if you are up for it. I'm trying to run an n64 emulator and play Zelda, but it's real laggy. Was wondering if it would be worth it to overclock. Or install a kernel that's is overclocked. Do you have any suggestions on it. Or good places to do research?

it couldnt hurt to give it a try to OC and see if it smooths out your game any. just keep an eye on things,as OCing can cause extra heat and worse battery life. if it does help the game,it may be worth bringing the speeds back down when your not playing.

i actually dont do much with kernels... i usually just run what comes in the rom,and this phone is so capable i havent found much need in the way i use it to OC(id actually like to underclock it)

you might poke around on xda or rootz,and post up a seperate thread here. i believe thornev runs a different kernel,and i know there are a few users that like to tweek things more than i do

your permanent recovery did not install a kernel. youll need to launch your recovery into memory,and then you can either reflash,or restore a backup.

directions,and reasons why htcdev is different are found here: s-on and want to flash roms? READ THIS

carefully read thru it,and post up about anything you dont understand,as it should have all the info you need to get up and running.

installing the superuser root package has notihing to do with your kernel.

your permanently installed recovery did NOT install a kernel

your current stock kernel is not even close to compatible with the rom you tried to install.

a PH98IMG can be a lot of things-radio,boot image,recovery,etc.

the thread i linked was ot explaning how to root. it was explaining why you cannot use rom manager and a premantly installed recovery. it also explained how to launch recovery with the fastboot command "fastboot boot recoveryname.img

im glad you got your rom working.

unfortunately,youll have to search the forum for your tether answer,as i guide,i cannot help you with that,as it is technically stealing service from your provider.

what process?

you will have to fastboot boot amon recovery any time you want to flash a rom or restore a backup that has a different kernel.

if your wife doesnt work,tell her to get a job or get out

just kidding,what is not working?

I think wife = WiFi.

You may need to clean cache and dalvik-cache, and then try flashing the new Rom again.

this is the best advice. just make sure you are fastboot booting the recovery,as your wifi will not be fixed otherwise. the prollem with it currently is a kernel/module mismatch(usually from the kernel not installing. wich is usually from flashing the rom from a permantly installed recovery)

what i would suggest,is to run the RUU for the latest global ICS firmware. you can download it from here: Shipped ROMs

rename PH98IMG and flash it in hboot.

run the phone for a few days,and make sure all your issues have disapeared.

you can install recovery and install superSU for root access.( [29.08.2012] SuperSU v0.96 - xda-developers )

after youve run the phone a few days,you can try reflashing a rom.
make sure you:
-wipe data/factory reset
-wipe cache
-wipe dalvik
-wipe boot
-wipe system

no need for any firmware patches if youre flashing an ICS rom

will do, again sorry for the late response
can you tell me me... what was the point of me going to s-off
i really dont see any difference
for some reason i was under the impression that you wouldnt have to do anymore wipes.

you will defaintely have to do wipes when flashing roms.

you will not need firmware patches,as you can now flash any firware you wish,older or newer. the phone is not doing any security checks,and you have access to all partitions.

with newfound freedom,you will need to exercise caution. may want to read thru this:

Complete surprise but for what ever reason downloaded the img and it didn't update
I'll try re downloading it and see what's up
Don't mean to question help but why would I have to wait a couple days to see if the issues fixed to down load the other su?

how will you know if the issues you are having are due to the rom your running,or prollems with the phone itself? you need to give it some time with a stock phone to make sure everything is working correctly. that way,you know if any issues you encounter after a rom flash are in fact rom related. the more time you give it on the stock rom,the more secure you will be.

PH98IMG is only not found for 2 reasons:
1)sd card is not FAT32
2)file is not named correctly(phone must see PH98IMG.zip)

*make sure the md5 matches
*make sure PH98IMG is not inside a folder
*make sure you have put PH98IMG onto the sd card,and not internal storage

your hboot being locked doesnt impact anything,

if your pics and such were on the internal storage and got wiped at some point,they will not return.

you can easily add root access,just flash amon in hboot: PH98IMG-amon-3.15.zip

then reflash superSU in amon recovery: [29.08.2012] SuperSU v0.96 - xda-developers (download from the link labled "CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip")

if you are 100% stock and having issues,it is prolly an issue with the phone itself. im not sure what would be casuing sd prollems and keyboard prollems on a completely stock phone.

might be time to call vzw.
