    hey guys...

    easiest way for motafoca's 2.0.8 rom installation easy steps using windows operating system:


    downloads:

    1........download 2 part files of motofoca's rar file using the release link in here.
    2........download adb tools from old release.
    3........download adb toolbox from release.
    4........download reboot fix rar file from the same link given in there.
    5........download odin.exe and ops file from the link givenn in the "how to flash" tutorial.

    procedure:
    1........backup ur sd card data and the phone data using backup apps.
    2........remove sim and sdcard.
    3........put back the battery and press volumedown+center button+end call button together to enter phone download mode.
    4........open odin.exe application in pc select one package,auto reboot,and protect ops options and right down corner last field has this package option where u have to uplaod the package which u extract from 2 part files.(google up how to merge split part .rar files.)

    5........connect usb cable to pc.u ll get yellow highlight with active com ports number
    6........now press start.
    7........it will take about 6 min to download to phone n phone reboots automatically with option reboot now,wipe data bla bla bla ....select reboot now.
    8........the phone reboots top froyo 2.2.
    9........to wipe data/ext2 extract adb tool n then adb toolbox in same folder.press shift+right button of mouse to open cmd in the same window.
    now adb is visible
    10.......now its a need to make phone to enter the recovery mode it boots itself n eners recovery mode.so type recovery.bat in cmd prompt. then type make_ext2.bat which erases all phone data cache.reboot it.
    11.......for app2sd just enter recovery mode n execute the script that is mentioned in the link it will partiton ur sd into 2 parts one for ext n other for data storage.
    12.......for patch throo bat fix file just enter adb shell n execute reboot_fix.bat by extracting reboot_fix.rar in adbtool folder.


    it reboots n its done....

    ONE IMPORTANT INFO:
    if u have flashed to froyo before n then trying to flash with this rom no need of hard reset but if u r flashing to this rom from eclair 2.1 u must hardreset to avoid bugs.



    thanks motafoca for such a nice rom...love it n wish to see new features like flash support multitouch screen support for my galaxy 5 gt-i5500L
