    I am a total noob. So please dont get angry or anything, okay?

    Upload Mode is the same as Recovery mode, right? Vol Up + Home + Power..?

    You don't have to worry about anyone getting angry with you for asking questions. We are here to help and were all noobs once.

    Yeah upload mode is the same as recovery.

    Even the great Slug, ironass and Shotgun84 were noobs once, so dont worry.

    Umm, I can get into recovery. The touch thingy is pretty cool.

    But, when I start up Odin v1.85 the 1st box doesnt turn yellow. I have been waiting for a minute and its just blank. I know, for a fact that my phone has Debugging enabled.. So, any idea what might be wrong??

    Thanks again,
    You guys are the best.

    I realised I had to be in the Download Mode to be able to use Odin. I just flashed the Siyah-v2.6.14 and my phone is alright now..

    Odin is not turning yellow because you are in Recovery.

    To connect to Odin you need to be in Download as per Hawker's post...

    Omega rom with siyah's latest makes it very very very good. Battery life is superb as well. 85% at 9 hours.

    I guess I'll do the honours again :D

    Siyah v3 RC1 is out! That's right the first official version of Siyah ICS is available to download at gokhanmoral's site! Exciting times ahead!


    - used which supports both Samsung and CM9 ROMs (thanks to myfluxi for making necessary modifications on it for CM9 part)
    - added back BLN support for CM9 based ROMs.
    - fixed touch screen sensitivity problem while charging
    - fixed CPU scaling problem and sleep-of-death issues with screen-scaling (script or SetCPU) (thanks to Entropy512 to find the main reason of the problem. I have modified my code based on his patch and removed my previous workarounds)
    - ondemand governor is ondemandx now (it has a default screen-off profile with upper limit of 500MHz, configurable with ExTweaks app)
    - J4FS module (thanks to hardcore). I think Hellcat has an app in the market to let you change boot logo and that app needs this module to mount /mnt/.lfs
    - battery and performance defaults for interface. the defaults are located in /res/customconfig folder. you can either copy them over /data/.siyah/default.profile or use “kernel specific options” menu in the recovery to select one of them as the active profile.
    - fixed MTP. It will work both on Samsung and CM9 now.
    - a new, hotplug aware governor… I didn’t test it much but the code seems good. The only negative issue I noticed so far is that it is from Samsung (thanks to AndreiLux@XDA for giving the heads up)
    - MIUIv4, cMIUI and AdyScorpiusMIUI support. (not fully tested though)
    - Added auto-install of ntfs-3g binary and we are back to XZ compression because of this addition, but with -1 flag to have fastest xz decompression.

    Edit: In addition, the changelog for v3 RC2 is out:

    - fixed touchkey lights staying off in CM9
    - fixed proximity sensor initialization problem (that battery sucking red little light near camera)
    - fixed the problem that prevents some zip files to be flashed in CWM Recovery
    - changed battery and performance defaults a little
    - added Entropy512′s fix to prevent cpu0 to be hotplugged
    - SLUB again
    - fixed sdcard issue with HydrogenICS

    Sounds all good!

    rc2 is up.
    if you are on rc1 flash rc2 immediately.
    the only experimental change is touch sensitivity while charging.
    other than that everything should be better.

    Hi All,

    I'm using that Omega ICS ROM a few threads up.. Will this be compatible with that and if so, can I just download it on my phone and install using CWM? I'm at work so don't have access to a PC with Odin on it.

    Sorry - probably obvious question but knowing my luck, I'll brick the phone!!

    Yeah it should work and can be flashed with cwm

    Siyah kernel v3.0.1 is up! :D


    fixed Task Manager/Active Tasks issue
    fixed module loading issue which was causing some weird problems such as fm radio not functioning or android logger not working.
    added fs and readahead optimization parts of thunderbolt scripts back (thanks to pikachu01@XDA)
    set vitalij value to 5 for default and battery profiles, 3 for performance. You can use ExTweaks to customize it to your taste.
    performance profile tweaks. you’ll have to reset profiles in CWM Recovery to be able to use new performance defaults.
    adbd, init, recovery and are recompiled using latest cm9 sources.

    EDIT: updated on 9th April, 2012 to fix auto turn-on problem while charging in off mode (Samsung ROMs only). If you are on a Samsung ROM or MIUI please download again.

    Flashed stock ICS via Odin (I9100XWLP4), flashed CF-Root v5.4 LP3 via Odin. Then flashed old bootloader and sucessfully used my USB jig to get rid of yellow triangle and reset flash counter. Flashed Siyah 3.0.1 via CWM.

    All good so far, but now I must go to bed !!:D:D
