    Hey I'm trying to help Tank get from blu Kuban JB to TBGS4. It looks as if its calling for agat's or garwynns kernel, but in the "major issues" section of the OP it says that agat and garwynns kernel may cause boot loop. The known fix is to flash everything with el26.

    Is that what I should instruct Tank to do? Try with agat then if he gets boot loop to use el26? Or is it recommended to start with using el26?

    Thx :)

    You are correct but I have had both TBCS4 and Project X boot loop after the install, easy fix, just do a factory reset and reboot, it worked everytime...;)

    Nothing like a good swift kick in the brain pan to get the phone running lol. I have a tendency to do a reset on flashing a new ROM unless I am trying a dirty flash.

    Yep it doesn't happen that often but it does, I had to do it on GC01, Project X and Touched and its probably something I did wrong lmao, but doing a factory reset seems to do the trick sometimes...........:D:p:)

    So we are clear, before you do the install, wipe partition cache, wipe dalvik cache, install rom. Now if it boot loops just do a factory reset not a complete reinstall of the rom......

    Blu Kuban.. Greg told me to jump back into the recovery I have of it.. not trying to throw him under the bus or anything by that statement. but he's been helping me switch roms the few times I have.

    No worries:), ok if you have agats recovery, which if your running Blu it should be, all you need to do is go to into recovery, click install from sd card, go to the rom and install, that's it. Of course wipe partition cache and dalvik cache before the install.

    I was wondering if one would be as kind as to perhaps give " exact " instructions to an AOSP person as how to get this rom going with no hiccups if coming from stock rooted. I've never flashed anything but AOSP roms and just wanna make sure I et it right, Thanks in advance.
