    Great piece of work bro, looks and runs great. Had the annoying yellow triangle but as I recall there is a zip somewhere around here to take care of that. But again beautiful work. Maybe more roms from the vitality could transfer over to the admire...

    I put up a zip. If you have a back up of monster 5 you should be able to restore just the boot.img

    Two words: Bad. Ass.

    Flashed it last night, and waited the necessary time between each step to assure I would not get a 492 error. I also have my own APN file I use to make sure I get MMS working on all roms for the nTelos network so I skipped the last step. Nevertheless, this is an amazing rom. With all due respect to aboat and the other devs, this has to be the best feeling rom I have used. I don't think its COMPLETELY themed to ICS, but its definitely good enough for me. Everything is smooth, looks great, and until I start opening my apps, its fast.

    Thanks ppl. Glad you all dig it :) I'm just glad I figured out the mpcs port. Again, thanks to kagebeast for the Guinea pig action :-D
    It's not an ics theme by any means, it's my OA flavor that I overlay on most my roms. I just stuck a few ics apks in because, well, they look better than the stock.

    Cheers.

    question is this kernel diff from reqs??? or the same. would it matter if flashed with reqs???
  14. Spz0

    Spz0 Well-Known Member Developer

    Yes it is different.
    If you flash req0's kernel on my rom you will break data, wifi, bt and maybe other things

    So im running monster 5.3 do I just flash right over it. Or do I wipe everything? And where do I get this new kernel
  17. Spz0

    Spz0 Well-Known Member Developer

    As long as you're on cwm5.0.28 just flash right over, no need to wipe. New kernel is built into the rom zip.

    Cheers

    This is the first time I've got 492 error on playstore how do I fix
  20. SacredBloodlin

    SacredBloodlin Well-Known Member

    What I have been doing the last few days is reflash without wiping, then after flashing go in and wipe all caches but not data or anything. When you reboot, DONT TOUCH IT!! Let it sit for at least 20 mins. Then log into Google and let it sit another 20 mins, then go into Play Store and accept the terms but dont even search for anything for another 20 mins. After that, try updating an app. Usually Super User and Google Search always need updating.

    Sometimes it doesnt work for me, so I go back and wipe everything three times and try again.

    The error apparently appears when you don't let the dalvik cache build long enough before doing anything.

    Good luck :)

    I thought I did all that but will try again
  22. SacredBloodlin

    SacredBloodlin Well-Known Member

    You have to make sure it sits a while. I did this earlier today with my wifes Admire and performed each step at the 20 min mark, but it still didn't work so I went back in, wiped everything three times and then tried again, only this time I had the time to let it sit at each step for like 45 minutes. I finally just tried downloading an app and it worked fine.

    If you have the time to let it sit for a long period, go for it. Grab a beer, make a sammich and play come Call of Duty or something and go back to it. Once it works fine, you won't be disappointed at this rom, its amazing :D

    Oh I'm loving the rom already how can I get the picture frame widget back I looked in my titanium backup but couldn't find it
  24. Spz0

    Spz0 Well-Known Member Developer

    492 error can be solved by just flashing the rom again.
    Im not too sure what causes it, but it coincides with the "can't mount /cache/recovery/...." error in CWM.
    For me at least, a simple reflash solves the issue.

    Hope that helps.

    In regards to the picture frame widget, that is an android stock Gallery3D feature. If you install gallery3D, you'll get that function back.
