lokhor: It's easy you won't get it wrong

Except the ROM .rar file has a password to open, which I actually don't know. *sigh*

Edit: What did I say about reading? D'oh!!!

ArtooDetoo:
lokhor: SuperOneClick can root 2.2 stock. I think you have to flash an update.zip to get 2e recovery. do you not have 3 button restore anymore?

I have the std 3e Sammy version with their limited menu of options. I really feel the 2e 3B recovery is a must if there turns out to be a good reason to flash into a modded ROM, and I don't have root right now as the old standbys don't work with this stock ROM. I'll try SOC and see if it gives me back root. Is that a market app or a side load from XDA Devs?

Cheers,
R2D2


Can't you use Chainfire's root (via Odin) to get 2e Back?

This is Mr Noobissimo remember?  Laughing

I don't know what Chainfire's root is. I wish I did, but...

NZtechfreak: I will be on the new firmware pretty soon, download is nearly done, good times! First one since JPK that seemed worth the effort!


So I finally have to get my feet wet with Odin? Sounds slightly terrifying, but I guess the first step is to find it. Then read about it. Then get it wrong a few times...

Wish me luck. *gulp*


You'll be fine.  I can use it and I'm hopeless with that sort of thing without seeing someone else use it first.  How did it go?

I have to retract that.  There's no Chainfire root on the page I had saved for this ROM version :(

I take it back, scroll down to the 2nd post, it's there!!!

Bet you're just a little bit antsy sitting back and waiting.

I can't believe I'm out of town ONE day using my phone where there's reasonable battery usage and there's a flippen new ROM that's worthy of flashing IMMEDIATELY!

Well mainly not flashing because there are no roms with the themes that I like yet. plus don't want to give up CWM and I don't think flashing an alternative kernel is a good idea as it basically negates all the benefits that the new stock kernel brings.

Something's happening since there's a shiny green bar crawling across the...

Nope. All stopped.

Now there's a scary blue box with "RESET" written across it in menacing black type. Oops...

Phone seems to be expecting a re-boot. Trepidation is the order of the day. Best I push a button or...

WAIT!

The blue box has turned green will the word "PASS!" on large black type? What on earth can this mean? And what should I do now. Must investigate.

Well, Odin's gone into some kind of huff thing and refuses to communicate any more.

The phone says "Install default apk-files, please wait
Install default apk-files, finished"

and it too is refusing to do anything else.

Time to attempt to re-start the phone I suppose. If it'll let me.

Oh well. here goes. Meet you on the other side... (I hope)

*gulp...*

Lol I seriously hope you don't have issues ArtooDetoo. My first time using Odin was slightly scary but I followed a good guide so it was all good. As long as you can still access Download Mode you basically can't destroy it anyhow.

Much earlier he said he didn't have 3BR recovery.  You asked if he had lost it and I didn't see any/the reply.  I'm sitting here waiting .... waiting .... waiting.  Sounds like waiting for a rom to flash ;-)
