Copy your pics to an sdcard and make sure your contacts are synced to a Google account. Then either back your apps with Titanium backup if rooted or re-download them (Google remembers any apps that you bought). I wouldn't recommend doing a no data install if going to JB from ICS

What do you mean by no data install is that where you install it clean

No, if you are on ICS wanting to move to JB it is best to do the full restore install. There have been many changes between the two, not just visual but inner workings as well. The full restore and the no data install are 2 different install option for the One click install for the stock rooted/unrooted installs of JB. If going to install a custom ROM then follow the instruction for that ROM.

All the roms you need to see are in the one stop shop in the stickies of the all things root section. And since there are no official jb updates and you all are talking about roms this thread really belongs in the all things root section.

Please if your contemplating modifying your phones familiarize your self with the all things root section. Read the guides. Look through the one stop shop. Read the install instructions on the roms because they give u exact directions. Then if u have root related questions create a thread in the all things root section. Remember we were all noobs at one time. And the best advice i can give you fron experience is YOU ARE YOUR OWN BEST TEACHER! ! If your never take the time to understand what your doing. And whats needed for specific rom types and why then you probably shouldn't be rooting or flashing anything.

Not directed at anyone in particular. Just words from the wise. When your learn what your doing then you can help contribute your knowledge to other noobs that need help

How do I tell what what numbered recovery I have, I looked into about phone but could not find anything that says EL26?? Please help

I am downloading the rom and gapps now. On the same xda site it says to flash inverted store after reboot from flashing rom and gapps. When I click on the link for the inverted store it says link not available, how do I get this download?? I am a little confused, if I flashed the gapps file, then why do I need this inverted store file??

Thanks for the reply. So, do I need this inverted file then? If I do, where do I download it because the link in the xda thread doesn't work.

You don't necessarily need it. You will have the regular playstore

I would like to install this but first I have a few questions listed above so I don't brick my phone. If anyone can offer some help, it would be greatly appreciated. I have read tons of threads but haven't been able to find these answers. Thanks

Ok first let me tell you the recoveries are packed into the kernels. EL26 was a Samsung Rom on ginger bread like FL24 is a stock Rom on ics.

But you are only flashing the kernel because the recovery that lies within is deemed to be safe. You cannot use el26 on your phone all the time because we aren't using gb. But you flash it. Then flash a rom in it then it's replaced with the correct kernel and recovery that was in the Rom you flashed..


Basically if you follow the instructions to install each Rom you'll be good.

Ok, let me make sure I have this right. For pac in black, I have to use kernel el 26,right? When I move the downloads to my sd card, do I put them in any particular folder? Also, I go into the recovery I have now and flash the kernel then, then I flash the rom and gapps? Sorry for all the questions just want to make sure I get this right. This is my first rom flash dealing with different kernels. Thanks

Sorry, but didn't it say on the pac in black xda thread that to use kernel el 26? But you said that's for gb. Isn't pac in black a jb rom?

. The kernel will be replaced after you flash the Rom. El26 is ginger bread and if you flashed it and tried to boot the phone it wouldn't go past the Samsung logo. But you can always boot into recovery.

You can put the zips anywhere.you just have to find them in recovery.
You'll will do fine. Just follow the instructions

Thanks for the reply. On the pac in black xda thread, its says preferably to use el26, but you said that if I used it, it wouldn't go past the samsung logo. Can you give me any suggestions as to what kernal I can use with pac in black since the one posted on that xda thread is wrong. Also, since I'm on a stock rom, I should have agat kernal already on my sd card then, right?? And when I flash another kernal, that won't erase the agat file from my sd card, right, so if I do flash the wrong kernal, I could always get back into recovery and reflash agat, then??

It's not the wrong one man. El 26 won't boot ics. But it will still boot the recovery if you press volume up and power. That goes for any kernel you flash if it was the wrong one. When you flash el26 or 29 you just reboot into recovery. And you'll notice its cwm5 not agat.

When you flash the Pac in black Rom it will put the right kernel on your phone bud. It will have cwm6 and it will boot up.

Don't forget to wipe data and both caches before you flash the Rom.

You need to put the agat 0.6.8 zip on your phone and back up the stock Rom your on. Then if you ever want to go back to it you can boot up in any recovery and flash the agat kernel then reboot recovery and you'll notice your back in agat. Then you can restore your stock Rom.

Just follow the instructions on the rom. They are correct. We have been using them for a very long time. If you just do what it asks you to do it will work fine

Only the recovery u made the backup with will restore the backup u made. So think of it as long as u have a pair on your sd card " a recovery u made a back up with and a backup" u will always have a way out if u mess up. U just flash the right recovery and restore the backup u made with it.


And flashing roms and wiping data will not erase your internal or external sd card

Not Odin zip. Odin only flashes Tars. Recoveries only flash zips

I'm trying to flash EL26 thru recovery. I go to install from sd card but I don't see the file. I saved the zipp onto the extsd (in no folder), just on the card, but I'm not seeing it. Does it need to be in in a special place in order for the recovery to see it??

I see my error, I downloaded the tar file, thats why the recovery isn't seeing it, where do I find the el26 zip?? In the one stop shop under kernals and el26, it only has the tar version.

No doesn't need to be anywhere special. Just look for it in both sd cards. Find everything on your sd cards with a file explorer so you know where they are

I found the file in my file explorer, right on the extsd, but when I go into recovery, its not there. I know you wrote that the recovery won't see a tar file. Where can I get the zip version, I looked in the one stop shop and even in the kernal repository and they only have the tar zip.

EL26~ https://www.dropbox.com/s/beo1hnooomzsd5p/StockCWM-EL26.tar.tar
That is the only one I found under the kernal section named el26. Is it possibly under some other name??

This is from post 41 in the one stop shop when I helped someone else install a jb aosp Rom. Just follow the instructions or go look at post 41 and read ahead a little bit in the one stop shop so you can see how it turned out for them


Try this kernel. - http://db.tt/Sft8LyXO

Don't try to boot the phone after flashing this as its a jb kernel it just won't boot. Only reboot recovery! Then wipe data and both caches. Then flash ROM and gapps and now u can boot the phone...

I did what what they suggested on the xda thread and what I learned from you (self-elevated) and I installed the rom flawlessly. I am having a issue that is kind of bothersome. Every time I click on the app button on the home screen and click on widgets, nothing comes up automactically. I have to swipe the screen in order for the widgets to show up. Sometimes when I click on the app button on the home screen, the apps don't show up either. If I swipe, they will then show up. When it happens with the apps, it happens randomly. Is anyone else having this problem?? or is there a fix for this??

Also, I noticed that I don't have visual voicemail. Is there a way I can get this??

No, did not restore system with TB. But, as I remember, I did install the new kernal and went right from that to wiping data and caches, then installing rom. I did not reboot recovery as you said after installing the kernal. Would that have anything to do with it?? I had forgotten to do this.

No as long as you wiped data and caches your good. I'm not sure man. If it was me I'd wipe data or re flash and start over. You could re flash the Rom and gaps from the recovery it's on if you chose to do. Still wipe data and caches then reboot if u do that

I have just downloaded the vvm apk to my sd card. I went into recovery and it does not recognize the file. I have moved the file to different places, including the internal memory but it still does not recognize it. Am I suppose to flash this file with the recovery or something else and if I do flash with recovery, where exactly am I suppose to put it??

N/M I figured it out. I had to put it in the internal memory and long press the file to install it.

I did do a full wipe and installed the rom again. In the midst of resetting all of my settings, when I went into launcher, app drawer and changed the swiping of the app drawer to vertical instead of horizontal, it started up again, where when pressing the app button from the home screen, it doesn't show any apps unless I swipe. I changed it back to horzontal and it worked fine. Also, when I had it changed to vertical, I was getting trebuchet not responding. Ever since I changed it back to horizontal, I am not getting this. I also, restored the previous back up that I was having these issues with and changed this setting to horizontal and haven't been having any issues. Some how the vertical swiping of the app drawer is causing the launcher to become unstable and not work right.
Also, I noticed when I first installed this rom, I had the regular e-mail app (not gmail), now I cant find it installed. I looked in the app store but couldn't find the correct e-mail app that comes with a widget. Is this another apk file that I have to install?? If so, how can I get it??

I am also having a few other issues. Since I don't have the native regular e-mail app, I had to install yahoo mail for the time being. Now, when I get a e-mail, the led light blinks really fast. I went into settings in yahoo e-mail and there is no setting for the led light. I also went into settings, rom, and led light and under default, its suppose to blink once every 9 seconds. How can I get this to not blink as fast??

Also, the wifi indicator in the status bar stays on, even when I'm not connected to any wifi. At home I have wifi, but then when I travel, it still stays on, but when I go into settings, wifi, it shows that its not connected to any wifi network??
