Yeah I was planning on doing the link2sd partition after I got done anyway, he has a 16gb SD card. My main question is, what do you think caused this?
Also, what kind of rom is MiRaGe? Is it like GB, ICS or JB?
And on the aforementioned guide, at what point should I begin? This phone is already rooted.
I have to admit, this will be my 1st go at doing a new rom after our initial go from stock to doing gingerbreak, cm7 and all that. Eeek, I'm nervous!
I don't know exactly what caused the problem, but i ran the backside rom for quite some time and it started locking up on me, screen freezing, browser redirects and so on, sometimes when you update apps you can run into problems. Usually before i update an app, i read the comments by users and if there is alot of negative feedback, i won't update that app until the dev gets the bugs out.
MiRaGe Rom is gingerbread 2.3.7, basically alot like backside rom with less customization features and more towards performance.
As for where to start Andy's guide, i say the beginning to the end, then read it again, seriously. I know that is alot of reading but for me well worth the time, i myself have read it multiple times, just makes it easier to understand everything. If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.
Don't be nervous, that is the very best guide that you could follow, you should have no problems, just take your time.
Now, i'll give you alot more to read if you want to run links2sd, Andy also has a great guide for that here
If you don't have alot of apps, you could wait and add links2sd later on. I'm running MiRaGe, i have about 30apps and still have 134 mb's left on internal storage, so i don't use links2sd, still plenty of room.
But if your going to run Bean_Whiz you will need to run links2sd because the rom takes alot of internal memory.
I highly recommend Bean_Whiz, i ran it for awhile on the stock 2GB sdcard with about 10 apps and was constantly running out of ram, the more ram (phone memory) the better the phone runs.
Oh, i don't have a bigger sdcard because i have no computer to transfer files and data, but i really want to get a bigger sdcard to run jellybean roms.
Again, don't be nervous, take your time and have fun with it. Believe me if i can do it anyone can, i'm just an old truck driver.
