    I have just installed CWM on my Admire via Odin and I want to know these things:


    1. Whats the best place to get reliable ROMs with good instructions so I don't mess EVERYTHING up? :smokingsomb:

    2. Whats the difference between Admire Stock and Stock++? :confused:

    3. Can CWM be uninstalled if something happens and I need to return to store? :rolleyes:

    4. Can installing a ROM increase 3G speeds? :confused:

    5. What are things I shouldn't do with my new found power? :D

    Borachii roms are the best and stock ++ is just faster then stock and idk about unistalling cwm but they won't find out I turn in my brick phone to them and nothing yet its being 4 months now when I send my brick phone and to me I think monster roms increase my internet alot ! By 150 too 1000 kbs

    Most roms have pretty good instructions but I personally prefer monster 5.3 with paris's ics theme...but thats just me....just flash a couple roms and decide which one is best for you....:D

    So... after reading your replys, I think I'll go with Monster 5.3 with Paris's ICS theme, or ABCindicate's P.U.T.U. 2.2 with Paris's ICS theme... what do you guys think is better/more simple?

    Also, I'm nervous so flash req0's CWM because then I wouldn't be able to flash my Nandroid back up because of the way its formatted or something like that?? And I have read that some people can't connect to 3G after flashing req0's CWM and others can't use there camera... So... yeah...

    Stop being so paranoid, once it flashes you'll learn slowly then it'll be worth the time.

    Awesomeofsauce to remove CWM you can just go to this thread, download the zip file and bam! its gone.
    http://androidforums.com/vitality-a...load-stock-recovery-module-cwm-flash-zip.html
    To change CWM 5.2.8 back to 5.2.7 you can go to this thread and in the red lettering is the link to the 5.2.7 zip file. http://androidforums.com/admire-all-things-root/530432-rom-kernel-stock.html

    just flash both of them without wiping or formatting anything and that's that.

    lol flashing can be a bit tricky sometimes since there is always the risk of bricking which i actually did last night xD thats 2 1/2 soft brickings for me so far. i also did req's cwm trying to go to stock++ and the cwm worked but stock++ actually messed up stuff and put me in ramdump mode which i understand is when there is too much memory being used up (thats what i read somewhere on here) i was trying to go onto monster 5.3 which I HAD DONE SUCCESSFULLY BEFORE but it didnt work this time. lma it was probably cause i put all the files into my tiny 2gb sd card xD.

    odin is good but i hate the yellow triangle and id rather not go through the rouble of removing it even though its pretty easy now. use MetroNoobs stock backup!!

    oooh also after flashing back to Sue's CWM when you go into it the bottom might say that it cant mount anything.. thats normal just restore a backup you made or Metro's stock backup like it said a few secs ago.

    Ok, Now that I know what to do if I mess up again, I'm going to flash req0's CWM again on Friday or Saturday. Tomorrow, going to try to download and flash that Win 7 themed ROM because it only works on CWM 5.0.2.7 :)

    WISH MEH LUCK!

    :party: :car: :party
