    So im trying to unlock and root my friends phone and put a nice rom on it for him. Problem is im a bit lost after following [Revised] Rooting Gingerbread 2.3.5 Dummies Guide.
    In bootloader his phone says UNLOCKED at the top.
    H-Boot is 2.18.0001
    Now I cleared everything off the phone under recovery.
    I got to flash the rom via zip and it updates and completes.
    After that I reboot and it goes straight to the bootloader menu.
    I'm not sure if I installed the rom correctly any help would be many thanks.

    thanks, i wiped using superwipe and wiping via the recovery tool. Problem is im trying to flash a rom but it seems not to work im just getting back into the bootscreen.

    ok you need to wipe first then flash the superwipe and then flash the rom in that order. flashing a rom and then wiping will wipe the rom clean (effectively deleting it).

    also it could be a bad download.

    what rom are you trying to flash?

    Okay wiped data, system, boot, caches (everything but sd card ones) then flashed superwipe after it says install from sdcard complete. Looks good then i got to my sdcard and flash the rom. Im using a Teamremics v1.3.1. Do you have any good suggestion for a ICS rom for this device then?

    it is recommended with ics roms that you wait at least 10 min or so after reboot to do anything. ics has always been very laggy for me so i tend to stay away from them. plus i use 4g alot which they do not have working. so i can't really recommend one from another. i know team dirt is an excellent group of devs.
