    trying to DL white window 4.4 to my SD card over 3g. tried in default browser and it said unable to DL. in opera mini 5 the DL makes no progress then eventually fails. have tried multiple links.

    just wondering why it won't work. any ideas? I'm really just screwing around anyway so its not a huge deal.

    also using tainted vanilla 1.4 if that makes a difference. thanks!

    there shouldnt be an issue, but its always best to download roms from a desktop to avoid issues with corruption

    I agree with Andrizoid that it's better to download with a pc.

    But, I have successfully downloaded several roms/zips using XScope and had no problems.

    ive done it with the stock browser before. haha i remember in the first days of my root....sitting in english class flashing new roms.

    it can be done, but its not recommended-and it takes a hell of a lot longer too.

    haha those were the days.
    i remember trying to change my bootanimation using adb push. that was the hardest thing in the world for a while. it literally took me almost a 4 hour train ride to get one adb push command to work

    of course...that was on mac os and nobody mentioned that you needed to put it in as ./adb push, but still....how time flies.

    yeah I'm pretty much just bored at work. I'm aware this should be done on a computer. just wondering what would cause the DLs to just fail. I have awesome 3g signal where I'm at so I'm pretty sure it should work.

    anyway thanks for the replies so far. planning on giving white widow a spin when I get home

    glad to see someone else hopping on the bandwagon, i hope you enjoy it.
    if you have any issues when it comes to the actual rom dont hesitate to ask.
