    Yea and for some reason his post was the last one in tapatalk on my phone which was the one I was responding to. Something weird happening today. I don't know if what I gave was redundant. Anyway I am glad the problem was all fixed, hopefully the weird thing will stop happening!!! :)

    Also You should go for the sticky too! I have used this post like 5 times already myself and it would be nice to be up there so people can see it right off the bat!!!

    That just seems like shameless self-promotion. :D I'll leave it up to the mods.

    As slow as this forum is it doesn't get too far anyway.

    Nothing wrong with promoting something good that you have come up with! By the way what's with that Nexus 7 in your devices? They have not shipped them yet or did you find some sneaky way of getting one which I do not know about! I ordered mine on the first they of the I/O and it has not shipped!

    I'm just planning ahead. :D

    I ordered mine within an hour of it being listed on the play store.

    Does this step voids the warranty on the phone? Thank You

    Hi liljoke. Welcome to the forums.

    That's a good question and I'm not sure of the answer. This isn't like rooting which would void the warranty and it really is no different than using Kies to to download an official update.

    Technically, if they knew you did it through Odin, it probably would but this isn't a custom rom that would void the warranty. This is their official stock Gingerbread and ICS roms. I don't see how they could know the method you used to put it on your phone.

    Thank you for all the help, guys! I did finally get it working after bricking it twice. I have learned a lot about flashing and roms and so forth from the experience but I am done messing with this phone for now. It's back on stock gingerbread.
    I want to root badly, but probably just shouldn't mess with it for a little while. You all have fun and I expect I won't be able to resist the temptation for long and will be looking for advice.

    Hi I have a quick question. Do I have to be rooted to use this method?

    No, no root required. If you were rooted it would unroot you anyway. :)

    Okay so followed all the steps and ODIN said it passed

    so when the phone powered on, it said click on android to start, so i did but it would go next, so then i decided to do a recovery since you mentioned if anything goes wrong do that

    so im in recovery mode now and i go down to wipe data/factory reset, and when i go to click on it my power button wont click on it....
    it wont click on any of them...
    so now im stuck on this recovery mode

    please helpppp

    So you can't select with your power button? Try your home button.

    does it really matter if i did not remove my sim card during this process?
  16. akamanny

    and should i unplug my phone when ODIN is done doing its thing?

    it says "sorry! the application Google Services Framework has stopped unexpenctedly. please try again"

    Right, that's the button I meant. I saw one other person have this problem. He touched the home button and it worked. Did you try it.

    He also had the same problem with Google. A factory reset fixed it.

    Yes, you can unplug when Odin reboots it.

    No, you don't need to remove sim card.

    I tried to gather the files for this last night and the T989UVLDE from hotfile would not download. Is there a trick I am missing?

    Regular download, wait my 30 seconds, then nothing. Do I need some kind of ftp client? I rebooted my pc just for S&G's and tried again (among other 15 times or so).
