    Spz0,

    In the world of tech, the only stupid question is the one not asked, so I'll ask a couple:

    Is the new revision an 'upgrade' or will it set the phone to the OA stock setup? --I ask because my gear is now very customized beyond the OA rom.

    Is it a necessary, or just a bit of tweaking to the .12 version?

    OR
    Not a necessary upgrade by any means. Just some apk updating and final revision number.

    Cheers

    Good Evening, I have another question. BTW thanks for the previous answer. I have installed this ROM by following the directions and it works beautifully (props to the poster). My question is about my contacts, apps, data etc. - Before installing I did a backup to Titanium Backup and also the backup suggested in the instructions. How do I recover the info that was erased by installing this ROM? Again thanks in advance for any answers.

    First off, WOW! Very nice work! I have had my MPCS Admire over a year now, with Admiral Beast, Stock++, Monster 5.3, and a few others. This is the best ROM I've tried on this device, I love it. Thank You!

    That being said...I have yet to get MMS working. Everything else is great, sends txt msgs np, but attach a pic & just says "sending" forever, never "sent". I have reflashed a couple times, each time wiping cache & formatting everything before flashing the ROM, then the MMS fix, then rebooting. I've also tried the APN restore a few times, nothin doin...

    As I said the ROM itself is beeeautifull. Really. I haven't had any other issues besides MMS. I REALLY wanna keep this ROM, but I gotta have that MMS you know..

    Is there anything else I can try before slinking (head low) back to Monster 5.3?? Please help if you can, willing to try whatever...Thanks.

    Also..just curious if this has the data governor removed?

    the description says:

    • "Data Connectivity Performance Tweaks"
    but I'm not sure if it has anything to do with me sending data msgs...

    The mms apk must not be taking.
    Try extracting the mms apk from the fix zip and overwriting the one in /system/app/. Don't forget to change the permissions to rwrr (0644).
    Good luck!

    Have no clue. If you're using 5027 and are following the instructions to the letter than it should be installing fine m8. Anyone else have this issue?

    Messed up, came from a HTC MyTouch 4G and would always have to wipe cache partition and data so I figured it was the same here. I did this after I made the backup though which is what I also used to do. Anyways, was stuck in a bootloop and overall the ROM just wouldn't load and I'm guessing it's because something I did. So I go to restore and I hadn't placed the SuigintouLain.zip on my sdcard because I figured everything would go fine. Is there anyways for me to put it on my sdcard and flash the zip from recovery mode?

    Edit: Just figured out how to put it on from recovery mode. Still may be in trouble though.


    EDIT AGAIN: So I was able to restore and get back to how I was before I started messing with this ROM, but I am really excited to try this ROM out, so I rinse and repeat the steps outlined in the instructions and when I go to reboot after flashing the mms fix my phone freezes at the custom boot animation.

    Nuttmeg,

    How's it going? Are you doing this while the usb is plugged in? I think there's a bug with that.

    Even before i flashed my vitality, the data connection seems to drop on its own. i usually have to toggle airplane mode on then off to make the data work again. Is there any fix for this so i dont have to toggle airplane mode?
