    I will have a donation come each of your ways as soon as MMS is up and working so I can throw it on my phone. Unfortunately, cash is strapped here at my household, the joys of a wedding and honeymoon. So don't feel a smack in the face if it's only like $5 each, it's not what you guys are worth, but rather what I can give out... :'(

    - 4G or 3G data connection not working. I can see only Rx1TT:6
    - Phone can't see SIM card but in service. In options choose both RUIM/SIM or NV not helpful. Using NV option I see incorrect IMEI number. Choosing RUIM/SIM option shows correct IMEI.
    - camera works ok but video records at low resoultion.
    - Tried to dial *228 to activate phone and failed.

    Thank you so much guys..
    Spectrum is really seeing the light after our devs started work on different roms..

    I will try to flash and let you know of any issues.
    Hope the 3g/4g issue can be resolved asap.

    Thanks for all the hard work!
    I will donate once I get my next paycheck hah!

    Don't quote me on this, but that's because LTE phones use Sim cards... 3g phones use that to activate, but the Sim card takes the place of having to call to activate or update roaming/towers.

    Awesome news guys. I'm gonna flash and test it out!

    Oh by the way tdm, its way, way, dare I say way...respectable that you'd rather have donations to you go to charity! ")

    Slightly off-topic, but relevant (I hope!)

    For those of you not coming in from the other threads here, "official" CWM is available for the Spectrums. Once Neph and PG got it working, Koush mainstreamed it and you can now download and install CWM directly from within ROM Manager. If you'd like to grab a copy of CWM Touch, you can get it as an in-app purchase in ROM Manager or download the IMG from ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries and use the scripts floating around the forums to push it.

    As a warning for anyone flashing this beautiful but not-yet-100% ROM, be sure to set your CWM backup format to TAR (*nor* dedupe) and take a nandroid backup from CWM before installing. Several people have had problems on the Spectrum with CWM "dedupe" backups, so you've been warned! :)

    NOTE: "tar" option requires that you update to You cannot select tar format in

    One more time, big thanks to all the devs who got as this far whether their still with us or not... even he-who-shall-not-be-nameD(2A)

    PS: I now officially no longer miss my DX ;)

    I decided to go ahead and keep this one on my phone. No mobile data is a bit of an annoyance but I have wifi in most places I go. Thanks again devs for all your time to make this happen. It's much appreciated and you will all be getting donations from me when I've got the money.

    Me also just now....how do i switch to tar? I didnt see an option anywhere in cwm

    Make sure you're running CWM 6.x.

    backup and restore > choose backup format > tar

    This writes a file to your sd card (/sdcard/clockworkmod/.default_backup_format) indicating your pref. As long as you don't wipe or replace your card, you should only have to do this once.

    Wow guys was not expecting this amount of fit and finish! Excellent work. I just bypassed the activation screen and set up Google account with WiFi. Radio seems to work just fine as I am able to make calls and send texts.
