    Index of /roms/motorola/droid/adamz/glass_boots

    Get the file right above the "kernels" folder.... the ESE53.


    Then just follow his install instructions... easy.


    "-- ROM will make backup for you... Name will be "preinstall". It can't hurt to make your own though! ---
    1. Download the Smoked Glass Boot Rom.tgz - File should be named *.rom.tgz You may have issues with Google Chrome!
    2. Place the *.rom.tgz file in the root of your SD Card. It should not be inside of any folder.
    3. Reboot into SPRecovery v0.99.2b or v0.99.3b (Press and hold the "Power" and "X" buttons)
    4. The next few steps create a backup for yourself - just in case. The Installation of the ROM will do so as well - so this is optional.
    5. Select "Backup/Restore"
    6. Select "Advanced Nandroid Backup"
    7. Select ALL options for Backup (System, Data, Misc, Cache, Boot, Recovery)
    8. Name your backup whatever you want (This is a backup of your old OS, data, everything.)
    9. Select "Perform Backup"...
    10. Return to the main SPRecovery Screen by pressing the "Power" button twice.
    11. Select "Install" from the menu in the main SPRecovery screen.
    12. Select "Choose ROM from SD card" from the menu.
    13. Choose the *.rom.tgz file you've just downloaded and placed in the root of your SD Card.
    14. Wait for SPRecovery to perform a backup and decompress the ROM...
    15. Follow the installation instructions and choose your preferred options.
    16. When it tells you that you are finished... you're done.
    17. Reboot and enjoy."

    Followed instructions using sprecovery 0.99.3b and keep getting the following message after selecting "Choose ROM from SD card":

    E:No tar archives found

    Any ideas why this is? I triple checked that the file is in the root of the SD card, so it's there...

    You downloaded the file using Chrome, didn't you. ;)

    Check and make sure the file extension is correct.

    I didn't have that issue but try renaming it from *.rom.tgz to *.rom.tar

    That works for some people, I think.

    Or try emailing yourself the link, and then click on it from your phone to download directly.
