I just saw that 2.1 has been released to the source tree, meaning that the devs can start developing some great 2.1. roms. My question is how will I have to install a new rom. I am rooted and running Humancyborgs 2.1 rom. Will I simply just swap out the file in my nandroid folder.
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what's wrong. I've rooted my phone, 2.2 with Clockworkmod Recovery. I've loaded up my sdcard with .zip files of a few ROMs I'd like to try, go through the whole process of loading up a new ROM, and every single time the phone boots back into the stock ROM. I've had some success with loading up the given ROMs in ROM Manager- but I'm trying to install Smoked Glass 8 or Ultimate Droid, and those are not working.
I just got my refurb today and it wont let me install the smoked glass roms neither v4 or v5. i rooted the phone with no problems. and i had smoked glass running perfect on my other phone. I go to "advanced nandroid restore" then "choose backup" and i choose the smoked glass rom then the phone says: "nandroid exited with status 25." and if i try to use the backup rom i made it says "nandroid exited with status 21". any ideas? ive tried several times today with same results.
I just joined the the moto droid world. I came from the Eris crowd. I had rooted my Eris and loved it and am looking to root the Droid 1 soon. My only question is is how do you install SPRecovery? When rooting the Eris you would install the Recovery Image right after rooting. I have searched around and am unclear on how this is done on the Moto. Could someone please point me in the right direction.
I got the update to 2.2. Now i downloaded the non beta version on flash. I download it through a website. i hook my droid up to usb put the file in the droid, then find the file in astro rename it then get an error. I really dont know how to install it while in astro.
After i bricked my phone on my first attempt to flash a ROM I waited a couple weeks. Today I successfully flashed ZapX and it seems to work. My question is: How long does it take for all of the apps to reinstall from the market? Is there a faster way?
Also: I dont remember if this rom is deodoxed or not. If not, is it safe to put 928 Blackglass on the phone with this ROM?
I rooted my phone yesterday and everything went pretty smooth. Did a simple nandroid backup too. Installed setcpu and both version of rom manager. Here is the problem. everythime I try to run clockworkmod manager I get this error "An error occured while attempting to run privileged commands" I did download a cyanogen rom but nothing. Can't reboot in recovery either.
When I go to setcpu in in read only mode and can't change anything. it says "no root access detected are application have permissions?"
Ans last, When I open superuser permissions, Screen is black and can't see nothing. is this normal?
I am trying to install 2.2 over my rooted 2.1 using clockwork recovery and the linked file from the original 2.2 rooted thread. Everytime I try, I get to verifying current system, then I get assert failed... apply_patch_check("/system/app/AdService.apk", then a bunch of other numbers, then E: Error in /sdcard/droidx_rooted_froyo.zip (status 7), Installation aborted.
I have tried everything I can think of. I have unrooted and tried to install the straight up 2.2 leak file through recovery mode, and get the same error.
I have reinstalled adservice.apk, still get the same error.
Can ANYONE give me instructions on how to install android 2.2 on my droid? steps say i have to be rooted and use all these nandroid backups and recovery and all this jazz. i looked up some recovery stuff, its kind of complicated i think i could do it i just dont trust much cuz i dont wanna brick my droid. can anybody who has done it please explain to me how to in good detail so i can have froyo on my droid please somebody explain to me every step from just the 2.1 update1 i have on my phone, to android 2.2 froyo the one that came out june 5th for download
I have the TBH app, but I'm having troubles installing the new update to Tranq 3.5. It requires a system format, but unfortunately my hardware camera key quit working so I can't format the system thru Clockwork recovery. When I install the ROM thru Rom Manager I still have all the blur. I know restoring a nandroid backup formats the system automatically, but I can't figure out how to put this rom into the .img format thats required. Does anyone have a blank nandroid backup of Tranq 3.5 I can get from them? I'd like to NOT have to return my DX for a warranty exchange if I don't have to. It overclocks like a beast and I honestly never use the camera key except for Clockwork Recovery.
i'm trying to fool around with changing icons. is there a specific folder or path where apps are installed? i do have bettercut, but i want to change the icons in the actual folder so i can use the more icons app and still get custom icons.
The OTA downloaded but failed to install on my X running rooted 2.1 and nextheme. No apps deleted or other mods of any kind. I removed the theme and decided to go with the leaked version rather than deal with new restrictions on the OTA. I tried installing the stock 2.2 version in rom manager and it failed. I wiped the phone and rerooted and installed bootstrap and rom manager then tried again and it failed. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
