i cant seem to flash a rom to my stock metir...do i need to partition my sd card?
btw i am rooted..just cant seem to flash a custom rom...any help appreciated..
Do you have cwm?
What errors are you seeing?
What ROM & what steps are you taking?
after i go into cwm and go through all the instructions listed here,it says installing..then it says install aborted..
id like to flash sf2
I didn't read his instructions. I can type them as fast as I can go find them & read them tho. If mine differ then find out what is going on from him.
Download on a PC then transfer to sd/clockworkmod/backup. Boot into recovery. Select backup & restore then restore. Select the folder.
It sounds like you are trying to flash. You can't flash it because it is a nandroid.
Edit: If it doesn't work it should say md5 mismatch.
i dl'd to root of my sd via pc.. done a full data wipe...dalvik cache wipe then tried to install it..again install aborted
You can't flash it. It is a nandroid. Please follow the instructions above but with this addition to the front of the list: Unzip package & transfer folder "Speedfreak2.0" to sd/clockworkmod/backup.
unzip never came out anywhere..lol
should i wipe the data and cache or no
Don't have to but won't hurt. It gets don when you restore.
I got md5 mismatch
could it possibly be a bad dl?
also, you must use 7zip to unzip it, winrar causes mismatches.
does it matter which version of cwm you use....im using cwm6
18.104.22.168 o r22.214.171.124? I get md5mismatches with .1.5
is it compatible with other cwm versions??
Istill get md5 mismatch..frustrating...this phone has great potential..
This is the version I use.
5.0.x.x and 6.0.x.x are compatible. I load between them fine.
Any backup I make with .1.5 would get md5 error. I could load ones made with other backups
This problem perplexes me. I wonder what is causing it. I tried to flash the ice cream dream nandroid and I got a mismatch. Strange.
but you got sf2 running right
