    Something tells me downloading/flashing the traditional way would let me download faster...

    Oh well, testing the OTA anyway.

    If you are using the one here is the OP then you need to do the wiping yourself. The only one that wipes for you is the script OTA version, and it asks you.

    themessenger Well-Known Member

    just boot into recovery. go to wipe then wipe /data and dalvikcache then flash .zip

    Ran the OTA while I was getting ready for work this morning. Everything went as smooth as I'd expect with the group of guys that are working on this now.
    I'm extremely happy to see that you decided to keep the terminal scripts inside the toolkit as well!

    Any tips on just how many Easter Eggs there are? I don't wanna miss anything in this awesome ROM!

    Awesome followup to all the previous Velocity ROMs, and Punisher/Frunisher, as well!

    Great Rom guys! One question, is there a way to restore apps that were removed from Velocity toolbox? I accidentally removed the Browser and would like to add it back in.

    You'll either need to find it somewhere and push it in or reflash the ROM without wiping.
