3. Wipe data/factory reset
4. Wipe cache
5. Advanced - Wipe dalvik cache
6. Hit home buttom to switch to external sd and then install zip from SD

I tried unlocking the bootloader and had a nasty brick that scared the crap out of me. lol

Will leave that to someone else to move some ones and zeros around if possible.

I thought I would leave that for the theme. Just in case some don't want it. I like the stock, but I'll throw the black onto a theme though.

Just checked the link. It's working for me.

It's how google drive works with files over 50mb, they give a warning first.

edit: added link that skips google's warning

I'll try it if you mess with the Motion's bootloader

I'm not afraid of messing with the bootloader, I know how to erase it off my phone and still be able to unbrick

Just got home from work.

Gonna make a flashable bluetooth package to see if it fixes it.
Hopefully it's not dependant on the launcher or keyboard... That would suck, since I like nova & jb keyboard more.

Wow, I was hesitating to buy the Spirit, then I see this. One question though, everybody seems to be saying "sucks about the locked bootloader." I suppose I had presumed that this was needed to make custom firmwares, but looks like that is not so? What, exactly, is needed that a locked bootloader prevents? What hope is there of unlocking it? Why is it done in the first place, particularly if we can root it, and get custom firmware going anyway? Pardon my ignorance but I haven't found any place that explicitly discusses this sort of thing.

No Kernels from what I understand with a locked boot loader, ROM's and other stuff still possible to do.

That is correct... We can do just about anything on this phone, but with the locked bootloader we wont get custom kernels which allow overclocking.
like from stock 1.5ghz to say 2.0ghz.

Googled a little more and found this. Very informative, but then it kind of makes me wonder why there are any locked bootloaders that the community doesn't tackle?

Listening to me may be pointless since I made the rom.
Maybe someone else will chime in.

The testers said it runs nice and smooth, and same for me.
Everything works except bluetooth.

This will definitely be my daily driver till cm10.

Yes... You have to do all those steps when flashing a rom.

the original thread i had read about the recovery app had talked about not using factory reset. I had read it as not using factory reset in the temp recovery we us. but what they meant was the factory reset in the phones settings.

Do you mean like, cell service and 4g?
If so... Is it still down?

I flashed same zip, but everything working for me.

Edit: Awesome... Glad it's all working for you.

Thanks for testing. I will add you to creds.

I will also repack the rom into v2.0 for a fresh start.

I think what happen was, I flashed both the rom and the fix at the same time
than rebooted.

Go to this link for CWM...
2nd Init Recovery by 985hPaKicK for the spirit.

Wait till the afternoon to install rom I will be releasing version 2.0 with bluetooth & hotspot completely working.

If you get impatient you can just flash the fix after the current 1.0 version.
