HTC Incredible :: Installing Custom Roms / Rooting

Sep 27, 2010

I have been using the INC for about 2 months now and i really do like the phone. As all of you know, the battery sucks. I picked up the 1500 battery about the same time the 2.2 came out and the battery life dropped over the 2.1/stocker. I thought it may have been the battery so i used the stock 1300 for a while and it was TERRIBLE. To add to the issue, the battery takes longer to charge then it does die. And thats why i am posting this. Could someone give me a list of what i need to do while rooting my phone and installing custom roms? that will speed up charge time? Normally i wont ask for help like this but i have zero time to sit down and read about everything. Just looking for a simple fix to get me by for the next few months.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing Custom Roms

Aug 27, 2010

I have been messing around with rooting and installing custom roms then going stock messing with settings then going to another to see how I like it. In the past, after I flashed a stock .sbf file I would be prompted for the Froyo OTA update. I just did it again last night. I was wondering, can you flash your phone too many times where you start to cause problems? And, does Verizon keep a check on how many times you've downloaded an update? Or, is it just not popping up because FRG22D is out?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting And Custom ROMs

Nov 24, 2010

I have searched here and via Google searches about Rooting and custom ROMs. I still am not quite sure what any of it means. I know rooting allows access to things that you normally cannot do such as removing HTC and Sprint apps. Which I would LOVE to do. I mean, who the hell wants the stock widget anyway?

Mar 26, 2010

Theres not much I'm missing from stock android but wi-fi tethering would be really nice. Plus I would like to still be able to receive OTA updates that google offers. Can you root the phone and keep the stock ROM? If yes will the stock ROM still update? Is there a wi-fi tether app that doesn't require something like Cyanogen?

LG Ally :: Basics Of Rooting - Recovery And Custom ROMs

Aug 19, 2010

I'm feeling the itch to go beyond the standard settings in Android and get into rooting. I'm following along with a lot of the developments here, but I often feel like I'm missing a lot of the background knowledge and vocabulary (what is recovery, how does one access it, what are all these different programs - nandroid, adb, etc.) to have a really strong grasp of what's going on here.

Now, if this were my computer, I'd just hop right in and start following along as best I can and mess things up along the way, no biggie, I have multiple computers and I'm competent to fix them.

I don't have a landline though, so I want to be a little more prepared before I accidentally brick my link to the outside world. Is there a good "tinkering with Android primer" out there that any of you would recommend?

Also, how easy is it to get back from whence I came on the Ally? I read the thread on unrooting, and I honestly didn't understand a lot of it, so I'm just looking for a "not gonna happen" or "it'll be easy when you finally understand."

Android :: Best Site For Rooting And Applying Custom ROMs?

Jan 4, 2010

So I am pretty computer savvy but just getting into the phone scene. Wondering what site is best for the hacker side talk of phones?
Androidcommunity vs Androidforums vs XDA dev forums?

Which is better for instructions on rootings and applying custom ROMs?
Which is better for finding ROMs?
Which has more users?
Which has more experts?

Anyone familiar with the other site or one I may not know about can fill me in a bit? I seem to like this site the most but if there is more information elsewhere, I may need to pool my resources. I would prefer for android forums to be my 1 stop shop n go.

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting - Wipe Data - Flash Custom Roms?

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?

General :: Security Concerns About Rooting / Custom Roms

Dec 26, 2012

So after having seen that I could use CyanogenMod 10.1 to get version 4.2.1 onto my Tab, I've gained a particular interest in rooting my p3113. With that said, I still have concerns about security with custom roms;

-How do I make sure I am as secure as possible?
-Is it still safe to purchase with Google Wallet on the Play Store?
-What should I avoid in order to remain safe?

I know the "risks" involved in rooting a device, although following instructions will assure that such issues do not occure. So other than the actual security issues, I need no additional information

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 7 - Back Up Device Before Rooting Or Installing Custom ROM?

May 7, 2014

I want to install Cyanogenmod and root my Nexus 7 2013, but I don't know what I should do to backup.

I previously tried to root and install CM on my Motorola Atrix HD on AT&T and successfully rooted it, unlocked the bootloader, and installed Clockwork Mod. I made sure to click backup and proceeded to delete the version of Android on the device and install Cyanogenmod. Cyanogenmod did not successfully install and I wanted to restore my device back to it the backup I made. It said that it did it successfully, but the device gets stuck on the AT&T logo when booting up and doesn't go past that.

I don't want to have to go through the same trouble with my Nexus 7 not being able to restore back to a backup in case something goes wrong. I'm using the Nexus Root Toolkit on my PC and will probably use the Cyanogenmod installer for installing CM11 (if there are any drawbacks to using the installer). What should I use to backup my device and how would I restore it back to stock if something goes wrong? And if I have a bricked device, how can I flash it back to stock?

HTC Incredible :: 2.1 - Procedure For Installing Roms?

Aug 7, 2010

My Incredible is Ver. 2.1 and radio 1, what is the procedure for installing roms? Can I just install any 2.2 rom right away or do I need to find a 2.1 somewhere then upgrade? Sorry, I just don't understand and I've been reading up on this for a few days. I think I understand that the Incredible will release a 2.2 update soon, do I need to wait for that. In my adventures so far, I've been able to pretty much master backing up my phone as I've had to restore it several times now.

HTC Incredible :: Installing Roms And Doing Data Wipes?

Sep 23, 2010

I just rooted my phone and I'm not in the know with how to install roms, however most of the rom sites indicate how to install. Most of the roms I've visited recommend doing a data wipe and a cache wipe. Is this something I have to do every time I want to install a rom? I just did a factory reset for the 2.2 OTA and, quite frankly, it was a pain in the butt to get my phone back to how I had it.So, am I going to have to do a factory reset every time i want to try a rom?

HTC Incredible :: Installing First Custom ROM?

Oct 22, 2010

After a few weeks of being rooted, getting rid of bloatware, etc., I decided to give Virtuous 3.1 a try, and downloaded it to my SD card using ROM Manager. I backed up all data in apps that had their own backup utilities and made a Titanium backup and then a nandroid in clockworkmod. After reading a number of threads, I figured ROM Manager should be OK for installing Virtuous, so I selected "install from SD", navigated to the correct file, and checked the backup and wipe options (I already had a nandroid, but figured another backup couldn't hurt). Anyway, for about 10 minutes, all I saw was a mildly disgruntled-looking android figure and a triangle with an exclamation point, which from my reading isn't what is supposed to happen.

I finally pressed the power button and it went into ClockworkMod Recovery with the following message (below the menu):

ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.0.5
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to seek in /cache/update.zip (Invalid argument)
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted

I used ClockworkMod Recovery to reboot, and everything seems normal, no data lost or anything - but what did I do wrong?

HTC Hero :: Rooting And Roms

Jun 6, 2010

I have a hero on orange. I have managed to root the phone and can download root apps etc.

I am struggling to get a new rom ( can anyone recommend) downloaded. i have installed an app called "rom manager" which gives me the option to install rom from SD card. I have or think i have a villian 10 rom in zip format which i have on the root of my SD card.

It is recognised when I search on rom manager gives me 2 options to backup and wip/clear cache and says press ok to complete install.

I press ok and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? should the rom file be zipped and if not can anyone give me a few short steps from here?

HTC Desire :: Rooting And ROMs

Jul 8, 2010

I plan to root my Desire this weekend. From what I gather after that I can install 'ROM manager' and then run different ROMs from there.

Is this all correct so far? Have I missed anything?

Then...

Once I'm at this stage where do I get the ROMs from?

Is there a good resource somewhere detailing what ROMs have what and where to download them?

I want to go to vanilla FroYo, can anybody recommend a ROM?

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Backup Data Before Installing New Roms

Sep 30, 2010

So I'm wondering about the best way to backup apps and data before installing new roms since it usually involves a full system+data wipe. Right now I use Titanium Backup and then restore all user apps when I have the new Rom loaded. While this works pretty well, I still have to go back and change all my settings, set up my accounts, etc. Shouldn't there be some way to preserve this data? Also very frustrating is that I have to re add all my widgets in Launcherpro. Any way to get a real backup of that too? The process isn't too bad right now, but as more and more Roms come for the droid x, I'd rather not have to repeat the setup process every time.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting 2.1 ROMS

Feb 18, 2010

I'm rooted, and swap roms, backup everything pretty confidently (thanks again to Joe for helping me get in the pool).

But there are some things I don't understand. I really want to go to a 2.1 ROM. I've tried a few with verying degrees of happyness, and some of the later ones I've tried just send me through enless reboot cycles. I've tried Pete's new one (figuring if anybody put out something dependable it would be him) and though it boots up FAST and runs great, after playing around for a while it sends me through reboot cycles and freezes up.

I always follow all instructions to the "T", so it makes no sense that others are having success when I am not. Is there some other process that I have to go through that are just unspoken "common sense" steps among the more advanced users that aren't outlined in install instructions? Or am I just supposed to let the phone do it's thing for a while after installing? It just makes me nervouse when it is looping through 3-5 reboots in a row.
