    I'm using CM7, and when I tried running videos he circle just spins and nothing loads.

    I've rebooted into recovery with no change.

    Any suggestions?

    Is the the youtube app or on the browser?

    If it is the app try clearing data from youtube.

    Also is this on wifi, 3g/4g, or both?

    My phone opens it on the app by default...

    I just cleared the search that what you're referring to?

    I was talking about the app data. Go to settings > Manage applications and go to the youtube app then clear data to see if that helps.

    If it is a system app use a program to uninstall it (titanium) then reboot and download it from the market to see if that helps.

    I am grabing at straws now.

    I don't know really slayher quit working on the TB I think. They are both unofficial builds

    rolltidedad Well-Known Member

    Oh, NO!! Why would he do that??

    Are there any other ROM's that that you recommend and work as well as CM?

    Slayher got a different phone IIRC, who knows he may work on dev for the bolt again but I think he hasn't been for a while since the last release of his CM7.

    I like liquid's roms.

    I hate to sound like a noob, but are liquid's ROM's sense-based?

    And this is a major question because the lack of it has proved to be a pain, but does GPS with these ROMs?

    Is battery life better than with CM7?

    Sorry for all of the questions, but I'm new to flashing ROM's...CM7 is the only one I've flashed...
  17. Yeahha

    Liquid has both CM and Sense based roms. I have never used one of his Sense based roms.

    IMO AOSP provides better battery life and less lag than Sense based roms but I am sure there are people on here that will disagree with me. All AOSP roms can be affected by the GPS bug. You can flash a Sense based rom to get a lock on GPS with google maps then flash the AOSP backup to get the GPS working.

    Feel free to ask all the questions you need to :D

    I think I like the AOSP because they don't have as much bloatware, and my system tends to run faster.

    He has three on his website: Liquid Thundersense v1.8, Liquid Gingersense v1.6, and Liquid Gingerbread 3.0.

    Do all of these work on an MR2 radio?

    I'm assuming that due to the names Gingerbread is the only AOSP?!?!

    If I wanted to flash a liquid sense but need to flash a sense based ROM, would I flash Gingersense or Liquidsense first and get a lock and then flash Gingerbread?

    I'm a little confused on the radios...

    So the MR2 and OTA are different radios? The Liquidsmooth website has a link to download the "MR2 OTA" radio, but that link doesn't work.

    Will CM7 and Liquid work on both radios?

    Where can I can download an "OTA" radio?

    It is listed as potential OTA[/QUOTE]

    Ah...I see the answer to one of my questions on that site...

    Just an FYI, every ROM available right now is compatible with the MR2 radio and up. The MR1 is what the TB shipped with and is no longer supported outside of running dated Froyo.

    I don't find a radio labeled "potential OTA"...I see one labeled "possibly" this one it?

    5th GB - Possibly Official GB OTA (COMBINED CDMA/LTE) - - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
    MD5 - b1e10920c1f191561fd05f1e9c445482

    And I hate to ask this again, but I see instructions on how to flash a ROM, but I can't find the one for flashing a radio...

    the zip should be named

    Put that on the root of your SD card.

    power off and power back on in hboot.

    it will prompt you to update

    do so, then reboot when prompted

    More in depth instructions in the hide, copied from one of Scotty85's howto's
    Flash in Hboot
    *first and foremost,while it is really cool to have an engineering,security off bootloader,it comes with great responsibility. flashing a bad or incomplete file in hboot can brick your device,so use extreme caution.
    -make sure you are only using files from reputable,known developers
    -make sure you are checking the integrity of files by verifying md5 sums
    -make sure your phone is well charged,as powering off during a flash could be very,very bad.

    so here is the safest way that i know of to flash files in hboot:
    1)download the file to your computer *note:do not unzip
    2)use a file verifier to compare the md5 sum of your download to that listed for the file.there are lots of free file verifiers,heres an example here: Home of the MD5summer . this saves you from transfering a bad file to your phone,but is a somewhat optional step.
    3)connect your phone to your computer and place it in disc drive mode. transfer the download to the root of the sd card(top level-not inside a folder) however you are comfortable. i personally open a couple of windows explorer windows and drag the download from one window to another.
    4)rename the file on your sd card to "PG05IMG" if youre using windows. if youre using something else,you may have to add the ".zip" manually to the file name. windows likes to add the file extension automatically,then hide it,so if you type in "" you may be actually naming the file to "". also please note that is a number zero,not a letter "O"
    5)if you havent done so allready,now is a good time to right click on the drive that represents your phone in a windows explorer window,and then click "properties". your phones sd card MUST be formatted FAT32 in order for an hboot flash to work. if you find now that your sd card is formatted something else,youll need to back up everything on it to your computer,and re-format it to FAT32.
    6) eject your phone from your computer first. then select charge only mode on the phone. if the phone has sufficient charge(some say 70%,i personally charge mine all the way) unplug the usb cable.
    7)f youre currently on a custom rom,go to settings/power and make sure "enable fastboot" does NOT have a checkmark,as this will prevent you from entering hboot from a powered off state.
    8) check the md5 sum again. you can use astro file manager,or a market app called "scary aliens android file verifier". this is the most important preventative step,IMO,as THIS IS THE FILE that youre going to flash. it could have become corrupted tranfering it over,so just because it was right on your computer,does not mean that its safe.
    9) power off your phone
    10)power on while holding volume down. if you have named the file correctly,and have a properly formatted sd card,the phone will find the file. youll see a couple status bars as the it unpacks it,then checks it. when its done it will ask you if you want to update.
    11)select yes to update by pressing volume up.
    12) youll see more status bars as the phone does things. if youre flashing a full ruu,sit back its going to take awhile. at this point i gently sit my phone down and let it do its thing. you dont want to drop it and have it land on the power button,or spit out the battery,so put it down and dont mess with it.
    13) when the update is complete,it will tell you so. in some cases you may have an option not to reboot,in wich case you could manuver to recovery if you have something to do there. otherwise,reboot.
    14) upon reboot,IMMEDIATELY DELETE the PG05IMG file from your sd card,as every time you enter hboot,the phone will find it,and try to update. this can be a big problem if you are stuck in a bootloop,hung up at a spash screen,or have some other problem that you need to get to recovery to fix.

    enjoy your new radio,splash image,recovery,or whatever it was you just flashed

    So those are for flashing radios, not ROMs, or are they for both?

    Also, is the 5 GB radio the one you're referring to?
  25. Yeahha

    Yeahha Usually off topic VIP Member

    The one you linked above the 5th GB... is the OTA radio.

    The instructions posted above are for radio flashes not rom flashes, you will need to delete the radio zip from your SD to get into recovery.
