    I cannot get the mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system line to work, nor do i know where to get the kernal DL from, but i cannot wait to try it out when i get it to work.

    Any chance you can post the direct links to the Overclock download and the jit-update.zip download for us non-XDAers?

    TIA!

    this stuff comes from and is developed by the team at xda. it is a free sign up, if you are rooting and stuff it is highly recommended to have an account there.

    The way I look at it, a lot of the root development is posted over at XDA, but this is a smaller community of root users, thus much easier to post for help and to discuss. Just go look at the post counts in threads over there.

    Did you have to wipe your apps from ext3? I just got this thing all set up and hope that I don't have to do that...though I'm not even sure if I'm using a2sd. Couldn't find a setting to enable it unless it's automatic.

    it is automatic i think. i made a no ext nand backup and and with ext backup. if i restore from the no ext i have no apps, i have to load with ext restore to get my apps.

    i tried everything and still no luck

    aloy snow is hella fast without jit and clocked at 710, i was just wanting to tinker.

    Do share when you get it sorted out! I'm assuming it's just a certain other Sense app that needs to be removed?

    Also, I thought we needed to run these commands if we use the updated JIT patch:

    I believe Caddy's issue is he uses a2sd. Heard problems when that is enabled. Dont know. Never tried nor will I.

    And about those commands. I tested those commands before on a diff ROM and when I did it messed with the phone. I have since then never ran those commands and never had any issues. Am I saying its the correct way? No, but it works for me and others, so dun know. Only way to learn is to try yourself.

    I'm glad everyone is using this to its full potential. Caddy, Kevlar is the man when it comes to helping with this, i wouldn't know almost any of this without him. I've never used a2sd so i'm not sure I can help. As for everyone else, if your a rooted user I highly recommend getting an xda account. The stuff that goes on there is awesome
