    AS ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP FIRST

    This kills MMS for some reason, I am looking into this (you can send but cannot receive)

    Its safe to run with custom recovery
    Doesn't delete root

    Twrp told me ot was broke so I let it fix then rebooted and opened su to update the binary. Btw this build seemingly fixed the battery drain and heat problems I was having with the last build

    I was actually going to install the stupid thing to see what it does. I have a new phone coming since usb port on this one is screwy. I reverted to stock but still get error on getprop assert check.

    Flag the new zip in the op (I updated it)
    It takes away the assert function as twrp for this phone doesn't register right

    So I tried this update and it seemed to work fine, I even flashed the new kernel as well. The issue that I had was that it seems to have messed up the init scripts because my storage wasn't swapped anymore. I had to flash victorious back over it for the time being. I might flash this update back on and then manually add the init scripts.

    But I think I'm gonna take a break tonight, it's almost time for some football! :)

    Alright, I couldn't help myself, I just poked around and noticed that after flashing the update2.zip in this thread (flashing update2.zip over Victorious 0.2.2-R1 with the new VaeVictus MG5-OC kernel installed) the install-recovery.sh script was removed. So I just went back and copied it so that my storage swap works again.

    More details on the process in my post here: http://androidforums.com/virgin-mob...-people-who-updated-firmware.html#post6051483
