Is the wifi bug fixed? Is the baseband updated then too? I know this rom wouldn't have that but if it is updated can you post a link to that as well?

Thanks!

Thank You so much for this update it's very much appreciated! The wifi works great! Minor problem though, I cannot go into settings - about phone - status. I get a force close with the message... "Sorry The process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." Any ideas or fixes would be great! This same problem was happening when Katracho first released his 2.3.6. He eventually fixed it but he never said what the problem was. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Thanks again for the update.

I do have question though. Do I need the overclock kernel? If not is there anyway you could post a copy of this without the overclock kernel? Sorry for asking so many questions.

I posted in the other thread before I saw this.

Wife got the update this morning and it updated the build and base band to FF27.

want to up date our 2 rooted phones to this but need to know if a can flash Ultra rom over this and will this flash change my kernel and if so can I reflash Bobzhome oc kernel?

Thanks for this chevanlol360.

I'll try and see if it can still run stock kernel without you guys losing root.

I installed CWM (using Odin and the unplug-the-phone-at-reset-time trick) and I was able to install this update from backup. Just a note for other semi-newbies and instruction literalists. You need to unzip the BoostFF27Update.zip file to [your SD card]/clockworkmod/backup/ ...

Some notes:
- Anyone out there should do a backup with CWM before doing this restore. Just for sanity's sake.
- I got an error shortly after the first boot -- something about "Unable to login". I thought maybe some of chevanlol360's data might still be lingering and we'd both be happier if I wiped that out...
- Wiping factory data + Dalvik cache (not sure which actually mattered) will make that bug disappear, but it seems to break Superuser/root. The Superuser application hangs with a white screen. Titanium Backup just sits there waiting for permission. Typing "su" in the terminal also leads to a hang in the application.
- Restoring from the backup a second time worked fine, minus the factory wipe.
- Conclusion: for whatever reason, don't do a factory data wipe. That said, I now have a rooted 2.3.6 . Thanks everyone!

Addendum: the freeze bug happened with the version of BoostFF27Update that was there earlier this morning *and* the newer one.

Some notes:
- Anyone out there should do a backup with CWM before doing this restore. Just for sanity's sake.
- I got an error shortly after the first boot -- something about "Unable to login". I thought maybe some of chevanlol360's data might still be lingering and we'd both be happier if I wiped that out...
- Wiping factory data + Dalvik cache (not sure which actually mattered) will make that bug disappear, but it seems to break Superuser/root. The Superuser application hangs with a white screen. Titanium Backup just sits there waiting for permission. Typing "su" in the terminal also leads to a hang in the application.
- Restoring from the backup a second time worked fine, minus the factory wipe.
- Conclusion: for whatever reason, don't do a factory data wipe. That said, I now have a rooted 2.3.6 . Thanks everyone!

Addendum: the freeze bug happened with the version of BoostFF27Update that was there earlier this morning *and* the newer one.
Im aware of the root lose problem, theres a superuser zip in the thread, you can download it at anything and flash it via cwm to regain root.

Prevail got an update that changed the lockscreen to this more than a month ago. I worked on one for a friend recently and noticed it.

Thank chev for the quick fix for the about phone-status bug. The difference on this FF27 update is the wifi connects quick & on it's own no app needed. I was using setdns and it still took a little while to connect. Quick question, has the baseband been changed from FC29 cuz that's what I have? I updated to that last month or so.

thats the stock FF27 kernel, if you want to OC reflash bob's OC kernel but note that if you switch back to the OC kernel when you go to settings->about phone and tap in status it will FC.

The kernels did not change for both Boost(from FC29 to FF27): https://github.com/BobZhome/Samsung_SPH-M930_kernel/commit/286a5704317da097b7c386fc9ae572e2783e09b5
or Sprint(from FD11 to FG11): https://github.com/BobZhome/Samsung_SPH-M930_kernel/commit/8d87bb3c14a41fd0c99ef7528414b048ed9a05c5
They must of just changed the files on the platform(system) side.

I got everything going, hooray! What I did was run Bads3ctor's unroot zip (what happened to him by the way?), odin stock recovery, did a full reboot, pulled battery, went into stock recovery, installed Unrooted FF27 Update.zip, rebooted a couple of times to make sure. Then pulled battery, went back & odin cwm back on, pulled battery after flash, went back into cwm, wiped cache, advanced wiped dalvik cache, flashed a backup I still had of Loota's Bear necessities 2.3.6 Rom(Thanks Loota!) modded to My taste, rebooted, pulled battery, went back into cwm, & did an advanced restore, & flashed Chevan's 2.3.6 Update, & now I have 2.3.6 with the new update, no fc's on about phone-status, baseband FF27, & Bobz Great Kernel oc'd, Everything working great! So it was a group effort! Thanks to all! Hope this helps anyone that's in the same boat I was in!

What new window animations? I updated per the way up there, and I'm not seeing new window animations. I got the update because my Baseband version is S:M930.02 x.FF27 and my Kernel Version is 2.6.35.7, and I have the new lock screen.

And yes, Settings>Display>Animation is set to All. They're just the same as the last update.

Hmm. The WiFi works fine, and GPS works again.

I noticed one thing, and I don't like it. On the recent call list they removed the phone, now I can't do quick recalls, I have to call again normally.

Woah, you're right! You can tap it and hit "call again" but still, that's one extra step. Good eyes.

I installed the rooted update and so far so good. I'm showing Gingerbread build FF27. Does anyone have a copy of the updated baseband yet? Mine is still EG29.
