So I rooted a while back, left the stock ROM on, just removed some bloat and flashed Ziggy's kernel and used setCPU to downclock while the screen was off to help battery life. My idea was, what isn't broke doesn't need fixin... I'm coming from a Droid Eris so rooting was basically a necessity on that phone, whereas here it was mainly done for battery reasons. However, I'm now getting the ROM flash itch and figure I'll start with Das BAMF. I remember reading something about Clockwork having some issues, and there was a detailed thread over at xda about how to delete and downgrade to an earlier recovery version (which I will try to find again if need be). Anyway, I'm asking all you flash addicts if you had to do the fix to clockwork and what exactly that entails. Also, the version I'm using is 188.8.131.52 for reference. Any help/advice would be appreciated. Also, just so I'm clear on the steps (coming from Amon_RA on the Eris and not being as familiar with CWM), you: (1) Download the ROM (2) Make a nandroid backup of your current setup (3) Clear dalvik cache, cache(?), and wipe data (4) Flash .zip from sd card (5) Reboot? or do you have to "Choose zip from sd card" somewhere in there? Anyway, excited to try out my first custom ROM on the Thunderbolt. Oh, one more question, when flashing a ROM, does it automatically flash a new kernel with it? I'm guessing it maybe depends on the ROM. I apologize for not doing a proper search on all these things before posting this, I feel like people over here are slightly less crazy than some of the xda members when it comes to that, and I know we have some really helpful people here who are more than happy to share their advice and knowledge. OK, that is all.
