    Well it depends on what rom you flashed??? So a lil more info is needed.

    Stock, I keep having to restore my nandroid backup b/c every time I flash a rom, (MikG or Mik3D beta for 3.0), it works great for a little while, then it starts force-closing everything. Just wanted to make sure that the stock version of sense actually IS 3.0

    The one that came with the Stock EVO is NOT 3.0.

    I'm not even sure if its 2.1

    As long as you follow directions for flashing a ROM they should work fine. MikG2.5 and Mid3D are some of the more stable sense ROMS out there.


    Are you sure your wiping DATA, CACHE, & Dalvik CACHE at least once (some do it 3times each) and then flashing superwipe before flashing your rom?

    Did you try fixing your permissions and wiping cache, davlik-cache and date at least 3 times as well as flashing the super wipe zip like the other poster said this usually clears those FCs up. Also try flashing one of the synergy roms.

    Sure did, (once each), AND superwipe AND fixed permissions, I don't what it could be.

    Should I flash a synergy rom then wipe and try flashing a Mik rom? Would that benefit me in any way?

    Wish I knew what was up, I was really eager to get into the rom game, now I just want something, anything, stable!

    IMO, here are the steps that i would follow...
    1. if you're not running Amon RA as your recovery, i would switch to it...
    it can be found HERE. don't forget to rename it to PC36IMG and flash it via hboot.
    2. i use VR Superwipe, found HERE.
    3. i would recommend MikG 2.5, found HERE.
    4. download the 2.51 (with kernel) and 2.52 patches also.
    5. place 2, 3 and 4 on your sd card.
    6. perform a nandroid with Amon RA.
    7. wipe data, cache and dalvik-cache ( i wipe 3 times )
    8. flash VR Superwipe ( i flash 3 times )
    9. flash MikG 2.5
    10. flash 2.51 patch
    11. flash 2.52 patch
    * i flashed the rom and the 2 patches in the same recovery without any issues
    12. reboot

    Could it be the kernal that's making it FC so badly?
     
  11. esthernrob

    it's possible. are you using the kernel that came with the rom or did you flash a different one?

    I flashed GoldenMonkey, thinking about switching to freedom. I don't think that I can use the stock kernel with the Wired Tether app that I'm trying to get working

    A pure stock ROM comes with Sense 2.0.

    don't forget to wipe cache and dalvik-cache before flashing a kernel as well...

    EDIT - and do not flash your rom and kernel in the same recovery. first rom, reboot, then kernel...

    I was having alot of FCs when I flashed Mik3d andthe golden monkey kernal also. Trying wiping everything once again and flash mikg or rls1 with the chopsuey kernal and see how that works. My phone never really took to the golden monkey kernal.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I have a feeling that mine won't either. Is there another kernal that you would recommend?
