    Hello forum. I've been off and on lately and haven't able to keep up with the new roms. I've been on cm6 for a while now and a starting to get alot of lag and am just ready for something new. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    I think I would like to try 2.3 but I really don't want to deal with too many bugs. I am also willing to keep 2.2. I'm mostly looking for speed and good storage space for my apps. Any suggestions?

    Yea, you can flash it in recovery. Look at the second post of this thread.

    2.3 GB is pretty functional and virtually bug free. Just make the leap, you won't regret it. :)

    What exactly is the root of the sd card? I normally just download roms, kernels, themes, etc from the browser and flash the items from where they were stored in the initial download.

    Means to drag and drop to your SD card, do not put it any folder or directory

    Either download directly from a site or download the rom/kernel..from computer then mount sd card and transfer the file to your sd card, that way the zip file will not be in any folder

    Just because I'm curious... what's the benefit or advantage of doing this? Other than being able to find files easier of course.

    To flash a file from the SD card via recovery, the file NEEDS to be on the root level of the SD card, or recovery won't find it. It only looks to the root level for flashable files, not inside of any folders.

    Although I mostly flash from the root of sd, i have flashed Roms and gapps from the downloads folder. It does work. But like I said, every other time, i have done it from the root of sd.

    Can you point me to where I can find it? I've been at XDA and pretty much the only one I found was AOSP 2.3.2 and couldn't find it on HTC Hero CDMA - CyanogenMod Forum either :thinking:
    thanks

    Everything I've ever flashed from recovery had been in a folder. Mostly from the browsers folder, but I've never flashed anything from what I now know is the root of the sd.

    Hmmm..maybe the newer Recoverys work differently? I was always under the impression that they needed to be on the root level to be recognized. :thinking:

    JB - NOPE - they can be anywhere.
    S-off files need be on root -

    I either transfer to phone after mounting the sd card or directly download something to the phone and it's in the downloads folder on the sd card

    OK, just to clear up this issue regarding where the files need to be located on the SD card to be flashed. There is a difference between ClockWorkMod recovery and Amon RA recovery in this regard. With CWM, the files can be anywhere on the SD card, but with Amon RA, they need to be on the root level of the SD card. I have always used Amon RA recoveries exclusively. Hope this helps! :)

    So I don't have to read every single post in the 2.3 thread, can someone post a download link to both versions of GB, the latest gapps, and current Deca kernels? Maybe even the proper flashing method? I hope I'm not asking for too much....

    I am not having any troubles flashing kernels, roms when they are in my downloads folder and not the root level. This is using Ra v2.2.1 for the Evo and using his latest release v2.3

    I know for a fact that the version of RA that I had on my Hero required the files to be on the root of the SD....BUT! You are absolutely right! I just checked on my EVO, and with Amon RA v2.1.1, I am also able to select a file to flash from within a folder. Cool! I guess the latest versions of RA now support this, at least on the EVO. Can anyone with a Hero and a current version of Amon RA confirm this, so we can all know? :D
