    If a mod or guide wants to put this in the all things root thread so to keep the threads as clean as possible or put a pin on this thread (lock it in) so it stays up top so not to get lost in the order of things and make easier to find for all b my guest and thx

    No problem man give darthstalker rom a run its the one im currently running on my phone and its pretty awesome but make sure u flash the mf3 kernel module after u flash any rom so ur wifi, bluetooth,and gps work...Im pretty sure he has that zip on the same thread as the safestrap

    Almost any of those roms on that page that the link sends u to r ok to run on our phones as long as u flash the mf3 kernal module zip. after u flash ur chosen rom and from what ive read from over there as long as its not a rom with android v.4.3 ie. CM 10.2, GPE 4.3 and so on...its all just trial and error which ones wrk with our phones. Make sure u read all the information given to u on any rom, dont skip something cause u may not think it applies cause thats usually where problems arise. But as for I...the only roms ive tried have booted up and run for me; gravitron, deadly venom, clean rom gpe 4.2.2, & darthstalker... I stopped at the last one because im really diggin the phone with that rom. I hope this helps and again sorry 4 takin so long to get back to u I just get busy sometimes dealing with the wife and kids...u know, they always gotta b entertained...lolol :))) good luck in ur ventures and happy flashing

    Did u flash the rom in the safestrap recovery which is the TWRP recovery and not the stock recovery which has what looks like a android lieing on its back with its stomach/chest flap opened...if u installed the safestrap apk on ur phone and installed the recovery that it gives u through the app u shouldve been able to press the reboot recovery option in the app and it will have taken u to the twrp recovery where u can either select 1 of the 4 slots to put a rom on or go back to the stock slot in case the rom u want to flash doesnt work as long as u didnt flash over the stock slot...sorry for the delayed response had to work and im in the process of moving and just got a min to relax...but I will try to stay on here more to c if I can help u out

    Try booting into download mode (Hold vol down, home button, and power button. As soon as u feel the phone vibrate let go of the power button) and try again if u didnt already
