    First there is no reason you should have boot looped after flashing ,y kernel. Second, the backup doesn't restore boot.IMG. so you would have had to fastboot flash your old boot.img. I will always advise to never use an ruu. Unless you are returning to stock for warranty. As for the problems you had I can't speculate because I wasn't sitting over your shoulder watching you. All I can say is try flashing my kernel from my kernel thread after you flash the rom

    Thank you for your reply.

    I've loaded TWRP v2.2.0 on my phone. Looks like my old backup included Boot. The first thing I tried was restoring that (i.e. just boot) using TWRP. Is that different than restoring the boot.img from fastboot?

    I had seen a thread on here saying it was easy to "brick" this handset, and the "cure" was to run the ruu. Since mine was a bootlooping brick, I figured that would cure my problem...Didn't know ruu was taboo--seemed my only option at the time...

    I've reflashed the ROM. Then I flashed your Jmz-PrimoC-kernel-ICS-20120820.zip (using Install in TWRP v2.2.0). Wifi still shows "turning on" for a while followed by "Error". What further info do you need from me to troubleshoot the issue?

    Saw the part about extracting the boot.img and using fastboot to "fastboot flash boot boot.img". That step caused the phone to start boot-looping again.

    Then I thought I was doing things wrong--i.e. I was rebooting every step of the way (flash ROM, boot to home screen--Then reboot & flash kernel, boot to home screen--Then reboot boatloader and use fastboot flash boot boot.img, then reboot)...So, I tried again, with *NO* reboots...The end result was a phone that boot-looped constantly.

    Rats! Here's the info on my phone, in case that makes any difference...

    I am having the same issue with the wifi
    Under th e UNLOCKED it says S-ON
    If anyone can help with turning it to S-OFF?
    This may fix it?

    First, we don't have a way to get s-off yet, so you will have flash the boot.img in fastboot. Second, for most of the kernels we have, you will have to flash the zip in recovery, then flash the extracted boot.img in fastboot. The modules for wifi are in the flashable zip. If you don't flash the zip, no wifi.

    If you have already unlocked your bootloader,
    you have the fastboot files on your pc. Flash
    the kernel zip file in recovery. On your pc,
    open the kernel zip with 7zip, copy the
    boot.img to your fastboot folder. Reboot your
    phone into bootloader, select fastboot on
    your phone and connect to your pc.
    On your pc, open a command prompt window
    and change directory to your fastboot folder.
    Type in the following code: "fastboot flash
    boot boot.img" , without the quotation marks.
    Make sure you only have the one boot.img,
    or rename it to whatever you like. I keep
    several different ones for different roms and
    have them named for the rom they match.
    Just replace "boot.img" with whatever you
    renamed it.

    I don't think the boot img is in this rom. If you'll go to http://hackadroid.info/uploads/index.php?dir=PrimoC/Kernels/ics
    You'll find jmz kernel for ics/sense roms.

    Download the zip extract the boot img flash boot img in boot loader then flash the zip in your recovery. If you fail to flash zip in recovery you will not have wifi.

    when I flash the kernel in recovery i get
    FAILED <remote: image error! <bootmagic check fail>>

    none of my apps are working, keep getting

    You don't flash the boot.img in recovery, flash the zip the boot.img is in, then flash boot.img in bootloader.

    Is it possible to have the capacitive buttons back to original where far right key has the recent apps function? Also anyway to change up the carrier label?

    Turns out This version of the Radio (which gets installed with OTA upgrade) can cause bootlooping with custom / non-stock kernels...

    I had to reset my phone, using RUU, and then *NOT ALLOW OTA upgrade TO INSTALL* before installing custom ROM / kernel.

    It turns out the OTA upgrade changes the Radio from 1.00.00.0521_2 to the version above. Since we currently do NOT have a way to SOFF the phone, doing the RUU reset is the only way to "downgrade" the radio...

    This is one smooth rom. I would love to see more updates for this rom in the future if you are still working on it.
