    OH YEAH, a couple more things...when I copy everything back onto my sd card...are there things I need to NOT copy back? Also, this phone is not activated yet...My wife is switching from her Samsung Galaxy S2...so I am trying to get the Samsung Transform Ultra all set before switching her over b/c once she gets it she won't part with it for me to do anything else to it...she's a serious phone head. LOL!

    I think I got CWM installed via copying the recovery.img to the root of the sd card then using terminal emulator.

    no just use the older version i dont know if the newer one will be fixed, im unsure why she is switching from an s2 to the ultra its like a serious downgrade, but i would since you said she wont give it to u after she gets it i would re flash cwm using the way i explained and use megatron 6.1.1 its stable as for the sdcard i believe the only thing u need to transfer is the dcim folder because that is your pictures

    LMFAO! Thanks my brother....Powerkane...you don't know my wife...you can't tell her anything...she won't allow me to show/teach her enough to know when she has good technology. HER big hangup was losing the tangible keyboard that she had with a blackberry...go figure. My plan is to get that S2 and root it next...although my personal opinion is that the phone I currently have is the better of the 2 (ZTE Warp Sequent vs S2)...I just don't care for her S2...my warp sequent has pretty good specs, is rooted and prolly gets 8 or 9 hours of battery with average to moderate usage. Thanks again for helping me out PK!

    one more question...what about the warning to not install aps until you download links2sd? I partitioned her card like the directions said.....so I am guessing I need to follow th remainder of the directions unless by the time he had MegaTron updated to the version 6.1.1 this was no longer an issue.

    to be honest i didnt do that part because i didnt what to partition my card so with that being said you probably can just reformat your card to be a normal card and not worry about link2sd..
    sorry for the reply time i had to help tear down my cousins carport

    good question...I noticed the link to the themes seemed to be MIA. I am fixing up this phone for my wife so I was hoping to add the pink theme...and considering she is not an Optimus Prime fan (Transformers...more than meets the eye), I was hoping to find a way to change the boot annimation too...LOL.

    sorry for the late reply the themes were for megatron 6.0.4, the fifth megatron version after the name was switched from $hEvRoN ROM (version 5.3.2 and earlier) and was removed when the update to 6.1.1 rolled out, as for changing the boot animation get with me what you want it to be and ill load it on my spare phone with a bad esn (got it off ebay it was probably lost and found or reported stolen) i rather mess that up than you messing up a good phone

    P.S. i know so much about this rom because its the rom i used on my phone when i first got it back in the later versions of $hEvRoN ROM

    P.P.S (click here) for a megatron red theme for 6.1.1

    P.P.P.S ill try my hand at making a pink theme for you

    and as for arm6 or arm7 i am not sure i know the question came up before but i cant remember the conclusion

    Lol I still read and check out my ROM threads. Even if they are not supported anymore. Working with the Optimus f7 with my new ROM called simplicityXL. Gonna be working on cm for it in the future too. Kinda wish I still had my transform ultra. Didn't exactly leave the ROM In good shape with 6.2.5 lol but not that many people still use it to bring the project back to life.

    That's because they (the other ppl left) are on Android Central forums. I get about 1 to 2 hits a week for rooting the STU even though my daily is now Sprint HTC Evo 4g LTE.

    I still mess with my tu every once in a while. I mean that is where I started to learn. Can't forget where I came from.. Of course chev, mav and a few others helped along the way.

    I cut my teeth over on the Warp Sequent forum...and I still haven't lost all my baby teeth yet. Sounds like this TU forum was/is graced with a great bunch of androidiacs too (thanks to PK for helping me get my wife's phone up and running). I was reading around on some old posts for the CTMod ROM and noticed some folks giving BLOODAWN much disrespect telling him to open his eyes. I never have understood the unappreciativeness of some people...these forums are full of hard working peeps that willingly donate their free time and hard work to make our droid phones better and forgetting that fact is taboo in my book.
