    Currently running DeFroST 6.0 forHTC desire (AOSP FRG83 + CyanogenMod)
    I rooted using unrevoked 3
    I installed defrost 5.9via Rom manager then upgraded to 6.0 via defrost settings.

    3 questions possibly unrelated

    when I run bootloader I see 'no image' and 'wrong image' messages displayed

    I am unable to delete stock apps that came with the defrost Rom. In root explorer I mount r /w and delete an app. Confirm delete message shows up. But when I exit app is still there in the drawer functioning normally.
    I was told this could be because NAND is locked. I understand that it should be unlocked when the unrevoked root was performed. I suspect that the error message - not enough space I saw in recovery might have something to do with the NAND setting.

    Before I installed defrost 5.9 I tried to install the cyanogen 6 Rom via Rom manager. I saw 'not enough space. On device' or something similar (can't remember exactly) displayed in recovery. i think this might have something to do wit NAND setting as well

    btw my desire is CDMA

    Can any body shed some light on this. im a newb so simple terms please

    You need s-off to delete anything in /system via root explorer. This involves flashing a new hboot. If not, dalvik cache rebuilds your apps list.

    Personally I just delete apps from sdcard/defrostsetup/rom.zip/system/app and reflash it.

    Space on devicce is not affected as that referes to /data/app which flashing a new rom does not wipe.

    If you have partitioned an ext partition on your sd card, then you would use a2sd+.

    You should backup your sd contents, use rom manager to create an ext partition, restore your sd csard, take a titanium backup, do a factory reset then do a titanium restore.

    Although the reset and titanium stuff may not be neccessary.

    Download quick system info to see if 12SD has worked.

    CDMA desire should be s-off from unrevoked

    unrevoked3 will permanently unlock NAND write protection by default on the following phones:

    • Sprint EVO 4G
    • Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
    • HTC Desire CDMA (HTC BravoC)

    There maybe was a problem with bravo bravoc identification in that kernel. Not sure that would make a difference though

    i think something went wrong with the rooting process.

    i rooted using unrevoked3 via mac. in bootloader i tried unrevoked the forever process and got a unsupported system error.

    what do the no image! wrong image messages mean?

    help is much appreciated.
