    hey all... starting to get back into rooting i've been out of the game far too long...

    so i've rooted my nexus and backed up my original rom settings... I went to reflash with zygot3's latest 1.9, here what my steps are, please correct where i'm wrong (i'm coming from standard ROM)

    1. Backup current rom
    2. I copied .ZIP file over the the root of phone
    3. Boot into recovery mode
    4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
    5. Wiped Dalvik
    6. Mounts and Storage --> Format /System
    7. Install from sd card
    8. Launch zygots3 1.9

    I'm getting launch error and state unable to launch the file from the path... yada yada yada... bad install error --- something along those lines

    What am I doing wrong? :thinking:

    when I originally downloaded file upon 1st released it must have no downloaded correctly... I redownloaded the file and repeated the steps above and flashed v1.9 and working as expected now

    I bet if you check the md5sum of the first download, it won't match that of Zygot3 1.9. This is why you should always check the md5 before you flash. If it is something as important as a BaseBand or a Radio that you are flashing, it might not be recoverable if the download was bad. Which would be BADDD

    skip zygote 1.9, and possibly future zygotes as long as they are on that new kernel (JD or KD?)

    Another user was reporting terrible things about this developer from a past experience, and while I thought his trolling was rude and inappropriate, as soon as I flashed his new kernel, I noticed that my phone was lagging and stuttering, and just not as smooth.

    Then I got my first random reboot.

    Switched back to Gummy for now.

    Anyways, just be careful and keep nandroid backups.

    lost NFC using super swipe... I go back to a restore and NFC is working again... wipe all data, cache, etc and going back to v1.9 and NFC is permanently disabled... grrrr

    Old news and hearsay evidence. I'd let that one go, especially around here. IRC is the place for those types of discussions, imo.

    But as for avoiding an entire rom because of a kernel is rather naive is it not? Just flash another kernel, i.e. Imoseyan's. [kernel] Leankernel: Minimalistic Kernel (1.0.1, 12/24/11) - RootzWiki

    Edit: 2.0 is available now. Perhaps it will fix some of the issues. It does. NFC fixed too.
