    Im having some problems trying to get yahoo mail to load through the Email app on my phone after flashing UD8 and my goto Chevy 1.25Lv kernel. I keep getting "Setup could not finish" "Username or password incorrect(530 Access denied: Need SMTP Privileges to access this server) and Ive tried this many different times. I know the password and username are correct. what else should I try?

    You have to set it up manually thru IMAP settings. Once in there, change the IMAP server to imap.mail.yahoo.com and press next. Then change the SMTP server to smtp.mail.yahoo.com and you should be good to go. Just make sure you're not on wifi as it doesn't work thru wifi.
