    I have tried to install some custom roms on my cappy few days ago coz i hav given up on upgrading the effin offical froyo from AT&T. so far I have tried 4 of em but none of them works. :mad:
    first I installed the "leaking" froyo one click thingy from designgear, i got it to run for a while but it just random crashes at anytime. Then I tried the cognition 3.04, also got it to run but it crashes even more frequently. So I tried serendipity 5.8, I couldn't even get it to run, it just get stuck on the loading screen right after I flash it. and then I tried Phoenix 2.2.1, same shit, stuck on the loading screen.
    Anyone has a similar experience ? any advise what I can do about it? I think its unusual becoz I know there's bug for the custom roms I dun think it can crash that frequently. I already follow all procedure from the xda developer, tried with (and without) rom manger, I even doubt there might be some hardware problem with my cappy... pls help :(

    Have you flashed back to stock? If not, try that and then start over. Sounds like you either did something wrong or got a bad download.

    Might want to look at the how-to videos posted on XDA.

    .........and forget about Rom Manager!!

    What steps are you taking to flash? You really do need to do a master clear and start fresh. Tell us what you're doing and we can go from there.

    I actually tried with diff method, but basically i follow the steps from the video showed on [GUIDE] How to Install a custom ROM *NOW WITH VIDEOS* - xda-developers

    procedure: flash it back to stock with odin3 "I897UCJF6-final-OCD-REV0", do "master clear", paste the clockwork recovery as update.zip and the rom, flash it

    the only difference is that when I flash the cog3.04 I use the "ROM manager" for the clockwork recovery, then when I notice the crashing I flash the serendipity5.8 and phoenix2.2.1 with the clockwork recovery downloaded from the post above (i.e NO rom manager).

    I dun think it can b a bad download coz I hav already tried 4 different roms...

    When you have flashed back to stock in between ROMs, did you ever see if the stock flash was giving you any problems?

    Same issues. Can someone please tell me how to tell what "batch number" my phone is so I don't brick it when I reflash back to stock??

    oh and you can't connect with USB when you're stuck in landscape mode. This is all such a pain in the ass. If you can't connect with USB you can't flash back to 2.1.
