HTC EVO 4G :: How To Flash Custom ROMs And Kernel Over Unrevoked3?
Jul 17, 2010
Since I am just an average Joe with all this android stuff I didn't wanna get to deep in the process of rooting my phone so I went with Unrevoked3, now since their claiming you can flash custom ROMs I was wondering if anyone knows how to accomplish this in a safe and easy way.
I'm new to both xda and android rooting. I just want to know what's the different between Kernel and ROM? Do you need to flash to the latest Kernel to increase stability while running a certain custom ROM? I'm just a bit confused between these two and what their function
I looked over at the instructions and it says all you data will be wiped. So rooting will likely be the absolute first thing I do. After you root its stated you can flash custom roms. Can someone go more in depth on this? Will Sense not work anymore once the phone is rooted? Any other points of interest that is worth noting?
We can now do partial flashes with the CL14 SBL.... If you have not had the CL14 official update yet, you can follow these steps to get it:
Remember... THIS WILL PUT THE CL14 BOOTLOADER ON YOUR PHONE!
What you need: Sprints Update Utility
1. Create a datatool back-up. 2. Download and install Sprints Update Utility found above. 3. Run the program (now called SWUpdater) and follow all the directions until it says "Flash Downloading Complete".
Once you have the official CL14 update on your phone, or if you already had it, and you would like to flash SDX/Joey's Kernel (and Max's Recovery), follow the steps below.
What you need: CL14 official update An SDX/Joey's Kernel Max's Recovery
1. Create a datatool back-up... (Although you most likely wont need it if you are just flashing a kernel.... But JUST in case, you should create a datatool back-up if you aren't confident that you wont wipe your data!)
2. After downloading and installing Sprints Update Utility, go into the binary folder (C:Program FilesSamsung ElectronicsSWUpgradeModelsBinary) and move the CL14 file to a safe place, MAKE SURE IT IS NO LONGER IN THE BINARY FOLDER.
3. Find the Kernel you want to flash and put it in the binary folder.
Note: Now you should only have one file in the binary folder (the custom kernel). Also make sure that if the file you are putting into the binary folder says 7zip or winrar, extract it!! If you dont you will get the message "Cannot access bin folder!", and you will not be able to start the download.
4. On your desktop there should be a program named SWUpgrade. Run the program and follow all of the steps through the end. After every thing finishes successfully, you will end up with STOCK CL14, this includes the CL14 SBL, along with the custom kernel you put in the binary folder (you are root).
5. Double check that everything worked by going into Settings-About Phone, under BaseBand version you should see S:M900.8.0S.CL14, under Kernel version= 2.6.27 moment(at)momentdev, under Build number= Joey's name (or any other developer who's kernel you put in the binary folder).
6. Repeat steps 1-4, putting Max's recovery in the binary folder instead of the kernel.
7. You're all set.
(If you happen to want to flash one of Zefie's kernels, repeat steps 1-4 also.)
It wasn't a great thing to get the CL14 update before, because it was hard to obtain root. But now with Sprints Update Utility, and all the new kernels, we are able to get root with the CL14 SBL easily.
I just went through the process of compiling a custom ROM and they used a stock kernel. I would like to incorporate a different kernel when I compile and instead of the stock. I know I could compile them separately and have them flash together but I want one zip to flash. Just would like to go through the process to learn.
I was wondering which Roms with Kernels combo has the best battery life? Right now I'm using MIUI v0.2. Just came from newest ShadowRom which I may go back to and use SurfaceFlinger to see the battery life on it.
I have the droid rooted running lfy 1.7. My battery life has been ok but not great. About 10-12 hours of life when I send about 3 texts one or 2 calls and an occasional download. I have also run udx 8.0, cm6, charity, and bugles .5. Udx has about 8-10 hours, cm6 has about 6-8 hours, charity has 10-12 hours and bugless has 5-7 hours. I was wondering what Roms you are using and what battery life you are getting. Please include the kernel, your speed you run at, and your usage.
unable to flash a kernel through fastboot it's showing the device is not rooted,but in flash tool it's showing the device is rooted,even all the applications are showing root is allowed but when i'm going to flash the kernel through fastboot its showing device is not rooted...
I have a question for someone more tech savvy than myself. I am rooted and downgraded the Hboot because I was a leaker. ;-) I am wondering if it is possible to only update the Kernel and not flash a whole ROM? The reason I ask this is I would like to enable over clocking with just the stock Eris 2.1. Can you flash just a new Kernel?
I did a search and found no information on a similar situation. Here's what happened. I recently rooted via unrevoked 3.21, then flashed a stock rooted rom, by OMJ, his most recent ROM. I ran the phone for a day with that ROM and kernel that it came with, and everything was working good, battery life seemed good for the day. Well, I decided to flash the 4.19 netarchy kernel this evening, and after doing so, the phone got stuck in bootloop, and I had to do a battery pull. TO flash the kernel, I did this: flashed from clockwork recovery to RA 1.8. Wiped cache, wiped dalvik cache, flashed kernel from SD card, rebooted phone. Then it was just stuck in bootloop, endlessly rebooting. I pulled battery after about 25 minutes, and rebooted into Recovery, which was RA at this point. I wiped all data, cache, davlik. flashed the OMJ ROM again, flashed the netarchy kernel, rebooted. same thing. Pulled battery again, rebooted to recovery, wiped data, cache, davlik. Flashed ROM, no Kernel this time. Booted fine. went into ROM manager, flashed back to clockwork. booted to recovery. wiped data, cache, davlik. restored nandroid backup from earlier today.....
I am using the turbo4 kernel and want to flash velocity, but noticed that on the thread for V3 there is a version modified to work with v3. I don't want to sound stupid, but is that one any different from the one I have? Do I have to flash the one from the Velocity thread before I can install velocity? Just trying keep things simple and reduce the chance for errors.
i have a 4.0.1 yajuux build Gnex (gsm) that is rooted and i got ClockWork Recovery on it with rom manager. I want to get the Apex 1.0.2 Rom on my phone except it says i need a XXKK6 radio. How do i flash that radio? also, I want the franco kernel on it after so how would i flash that?
rooting and flashing the Sensation. I know jailbreaking very well. (this applies to apple lol )
So far I've done on Sensation is bootloader is unlocked and added clock world recovery on my mobile and I REALLY need to add Sebastain's kernel on my mobile as I need to enable USB otg for many many many reasons
I was wondering if I can flash Netarchy Toastmod Beta: 220.127.116.11 w/HAVS on this newly released OTA rom from XDA? I don't like how the stock kernel has been acting since I installed it. Would this be ok to do?
I use Baked Snack 1.7 and I tried the deodexed version of the OTA but noticed no change. Infact I found the OTA would stutter sometimes when scrolling. Also compared to CM6 and Neterchy kernel 18.104.22.168 I don't see it being same or better besides it being official. I know pretty soon the devs will have their own version but for now I don't see a reason to update.
Meanwhile, I've managed to root my Samsung Galaxy Y pro Duos (GT-B5512) and, recently, wanted to make something to "boost up the phone", as I'm having a problem with a missing original rom app. So... as I have to flash a new ROM, and I was thinking:
I don't know how to flash a new ROM, and I don't wanna risk making a brick f my phone. I've been reading a lot about some custom ROMs for Galaxy Y Pro Duos, but some doubts remain:
1) I've read about a compact Kernel for this phone. Should I update/ change the kernet?
2) Should I try to restore the stock ROM? Or should I go for one of the two custom ROMs I've found for B5512? What are the advantages of putting these custom ROMs?
3) (1st kernet then ROM?) What should I do to the phone so it doesn't reboot twice a day, as it is rebooting nowadays?
and the Hands free car kit Parrot MK6000 BT-Version: 1.2 Protocolls: HSP, HFP, AADP, AVRCP
I can pair both devices with my Desire and the latest paired device would connect automatically to audiosystem for media and telefone when switched on. The problem is, that the first paired device would not connect automatically to my desire and when it is connected manually it would only connect to the audiosystem for media not telefone. I can't force it to connect with audiosystem for telefone. I checked and un-checked the check-boxes for both connections in every combination
Remark: I don't want to connect both devices at the same time. I know that this is not working
With the original HTC Rom I doesn't had this problem. Both devices would pair and connect perfect.
I rooted my phone about a month ago and had been running Amon RA's recovery. Today I decided to try out ClockworkMod's recovery because I had heard that it will install packages without a signature. So I flashed the latest Clockwork Recovery. Everything went fine, but when I tried to install any new Roms such as Evil Eris 4.0, nothing happened. It just would reboot into the stock ROM.
