So when we've flashed the updated V2, in TiBu can we restore apps & data including system data without issue since it's the same rom essentially?

I'm not sure since I always start fresh. Just make a backup and then try it. You might not even have to factory reset since it's just an update, but you always have to wipe cache and dalvik cache.

Again, I'm not sure since I always start fresh.

Sadly you can't, Google now is specifically for jelly bean (and up). Some nice fellow ported it over to work with ics but that's as far as it goes. Sorry, trust me we all wish we could. However if you choose to flash cm10 rom that is running jelly bean and you can update Google now all you want however there are minor draw backs in cm10, peep the thread.

Hey Thanks GT finally flashed my first Android rom on an Android cell phone. I took several months and read everything I could and only did it when I was very sure about what I was doing. Everything went well and I do love everything you did to it. The bare bones stock browser is so much nicer. The dsp settings and the Apollo music player are great and sound is much better. The black backround on the text messenger is also very nice. Everything seems to be just cooler. Even the connecting the the phone to my laptop is just faster.

I just wanted to ask you if I still have to use the trickster mod to choose the interactive governor? Because you said you made it default ??

Thanks Again for the wonderful work/

Hey Thanks

That is correct, you won't need the trickster app since the interactive is set as default.

Well technically if you wanna use a secondary sms app (i.e. go sms/handcent/ect.) you can customize your messaging app any way you want for the most part.

You could take lockscreen3.apk from the katana original look and it to system/app. Then change permissions to rw r r

I'm pretty sure changing it for the motion is gonna be a whole different ballpark sir, being that the framework is probably a lil different and the screen size definitely is.

just about to lose it, I can't get V2 to transfer to my phone from computer and every time I try downloading to my phone it fails. I was also having trouble downloading to computer. I am running V1 and it is awesome. Thanks GT

P.S. just had to vent thanks for listening. I'm sure I'll get it figured out.

Is there a way to get the status bar like how you did it on Miui but the blue you use on this ROM?

Question Newbie Help

Hi GT,

I'm rather new to this and need some guidance as to how to safely install your Samurai Rom. I've backed up all my data with Titanium so that much I know. I have LTE2Recovery Touch installed but not sure if or how to use it. Should I flash ClockworkMod Touch Recovery v6.0.3.3 first, and then install the Rom? If you could step by step this for a newbie I'd appreciate it. I'm not even sure what buttons to hold to get to the "Wipe data/factory reset" dialogue. Any way you can simplify this for me would be good. I have all the zips on my external SD card.

Thanks for all you do,

Tom

PS I just found a "clockwork mod" folder on my external SD card with a backup for Katana dated 6/30/3013, can't remember how I did it.

Flash the cwm touch recovery. To use lte2 you select Recovery Apply and then hit reboot. When the phone powers back on you will be in the touch recovery. From there everything else is self explanatory. DO NOT flash the ROM before you wipe everything. Just follow the steps on this first page and you'll be fine

Ok.. Did a new backup and got to backup complete. Tapped "reboot system now" and it keeps coming back to the same choices:
reboot system now
install zip from SD card
install zip from sideload
wipe/data factory reset
wipe cache partition
backup and restore
mount and storage
advanced

Stuck and not sure what to do.

If you wiped data/factory reset, wiped cache and wiped dalvik cache then you shouldn't have any problems

Also check to see how big the file was after you downloaded it. It should be like 384 mb. If it isn't then redownload it and try again

Sounds like you did a data wipe/factory reset when you flashed the battery.

When you flash battery icons, themes, or mods you cannot wipe data/factory reset. Just flash those zips and that's it. Just follow the instructions that come with each flashable.

Thanks Guys, I setup and configured Samurai, reinstalled from titanium, etc..then went into recovery using Quick Boot to flash battery icons and the phone just rebooted without giving me any choices. I was back to square one with Samurai, all my apps gone and no keyboard. Don't know what I did wrong and because the keyboard was gone I decided to start over. All set now, tempted to try to flash Freedom Kernel 1.674ghz Overclock but not sure how to proceed. Love what I'm seeing with this ROM...Thanks GT, and thank you both for your replies. Tom

At the moment you don't have a recovery installed to flash anything. Here's what you must do...

1. Go to this next link and install 2nd-init recovery like a normal app (do not use quick boot for this recovery). If you have 2nd-init recovery already installed then skip step 1.
[RECOVERY] LTE2 Recovery App now with Touch.

2. Then use 2nd-init recovery to flash an official recovery from next link...
[RECOVERY][CWM][OFFICIAL] Clockworkmod Recovery for the LG Spirit MS870 (l1m)

3. Once official recovery is installed you can uninstall 2nd-init recovery like a normal app.

4. Now you can use official recovery to flash anything you want and you can use quick boot to get into this recovery.

OK Thanks, but somewhat lost. I have 2nd-init recovery already installed. Not sure what to do in step 2. I Downloaded LG_Spirit_Recovery.apk and Spirit-CWMT.zip from the link you gave me. Are you saying flash Spirit-CWMT.zip? Should I ignore LG_Spirit_Recovery.apk? Will one (or both) of them take the place of 2nd-init recovery? Sorry for my confusion.

Thanks........Tom

Flash Spirit-CWM.zip with 2nd-init recovery and forget about LG_Spirit_Recovery.apk then proceed with step 3 in my previous post.
