    So I was messing around with my phone in links 2sd ( dangerous) while using the stock ++ rom. I deleted something accidentally and setcpu would force close. So I decided to reboot my phone and see what's what. It boot looped. :( I decided I had no desire to continue using stock ++ so I would just return to admiral beast. Oddly it felt faster and more stable ; Stock ++ would freeze up randomly. So anyway, I wiped: cache, sd card, aystem , battert stats,data and davlik . I tried to get my.phone into download mode so I could load the original CWM via ODIN. No luck , I have a second admire though :) I tested to make sure I was doing the right button combo to make the phone go into download mode. I was but it wouldn't initialize. It would just bootloop. However , I could still boot into the version of.recovery required to load the kernel/stock ++. So feeling two cups of coffee daring , I decided screw it , and went ahead mounted the usb , placed cwm-admiral beast zip on my as card and flash That bad boy. Not only did the room flash , but now I have admiral beast back on my admire but running the new kernel. I can over clock to 900mhz. My phones odexed, etc. I've been running it since this morning and its stable and markedly faster. Just thought id let everyone know. NOTE: IF YOU ATTEMPT TO DUPLICATE THIS DO SO AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE. REMEMBER TO MAKE A BACK UP OF EVERYTHING LIKE I DID. USE A COMPUTER TO STORE THAT CRAP

    Suhweet! i will try that when i get home... So excited :) Thanks! :):)
  3. All you should have to do is flash stock++, mount system, and flash any other stock-based ROM (aka Admiral Beast). Unless the ROM's updater script formats things back to rfs, you shouldn't have issues.

    Can it stay ext4 though? Anyway to make /system, /data, and /cache ext4 like in stock++?
    please dont say no there must be a way
  5. My kernels and recovery are only ext4. Which is why you have to flash Stock++ first.

    shit. Sticking to stock++ i guess!
  10. Try this: Take the system/app and system/framework from Admiral Beast, and copy them over the system/app and system/framework folders in the Stock++ zip and flash it. Might give you the theme, and still be Stock++'ish.

    Lmao it worked thanks
    Now time to reconfigure all over again
  13. No problem. Should work with any themed ROM based on stock. Maybe upload the zip somewhere for others who would like it as well. Congrats, you just made your first 'ROM' :p

  14. Also, no need to reconfigure, just advanced restore data from one of your nandroids.

    If I remember correctly I already had init.d tweaks built into the ROM. they just didn't work cause I didn't have a kernel with init.d support. So using my ROM with req kernel you should notice a difference. Also if you look at genvodot latest ROM I gave him a package of scripts to use. So if need be you call pull those if I didn't leave any scripts in my ROM.
