Motorola Droid :: ROM Manager Instructions For UD 9.8.0
Apr 12, 2010
It's been awhile since I've done an update. I'm on Ult Droid 9.0.0. I noticed that there are no ROM Manager instructions for 9.8.0 but that states you have to do a wipe and clear cache prior to installing the update. Do you still do all this through the ROM manager? Or is there another way to install this that is "better"?
My name is Moondog and "I'm a tehno-phobic Moto Droid newbie"..Although the Droid is pretty easy on the basic stuff, I am sure that there is lots more I could do with the phone.I've read the online manual, but it doesn't get into much detail.Does anybody know where I could find more in-depth instructions?
I don't know any terminology of any kind so if you're going to tell me to do something please tell me how. First, ROM manager. In a detailed explanation please tell me how to install and backup and all of that fun stuffs. Again, I don't know how to do anything without direction! And 2nd, Set CPU, I just need all the info. I need to know on this application, and how to use it.
i got the bootstrap recovery, and I'm rooted so I'm looking for some froyo roms. since we can't use ROM Manager, where do I find the 2.2 roms? I've been searching for a bit now but all I can find is the 2.2 leak. that's not all there is right? THere has to be some ROMS that the devs have made for the droid x. has anybody consolidated them in a webpage or a forum thread or something?
I am newly rooted on DX. World fine with titanium backup. Started to use rom manager. Best I can tell from other posts I should backup up my current default froyo rom. I updated the clockwork and then when I push to backup current rom, the phone restarts but does nothing more. Is that all it should do? Seems like it should show backup occurring. Any help appreciated.
I rooted my phone and downloaded SetCPU and ROM Manager. Can I do everything I need with ROM Manager to install a different ROM and wipe everything that needs wiped, and what all needs to be wiped? Or is there more apps required.
I have both 'Droid X Bootstrapper' and 'ROM Manager', do I need both? It seems to me that ROM Manager does a lot more than Droid X Bootstrapper, so I didn't know if I needed both or if I can get rid of the Bootstrapper. Or is ROM Manager using the Bootstrapper?
When using rom manager when do you need to wipe and when don't you? So far, I have wiped data anytime I switch to a different rom. I am currently using Ultimate Droid. If I want to try some of the things offered in the ultimate droid customizer, do I need to wipe when changing any of those? Or how about cyanogenmod? I have a nandroid backup of 126.96.36.199. Can I restore that version (with a wipe of course), update to .4 (without a wipe because I have all my apps loaded and settings set the way I want), then try some of the kernals without wiping? Basically, with all the combinations, what are some examples of when you would and wouldn't wipe data?
I had the new Chevy SS rom installed on my phone but didnt like it as much as the JRummy one. So I reflashed the JRummy rom and installed it. I wanted to reinstall the chevy ulv 1.2ghz kernel on my phone. I usally used rom manager and would just use the option "install ROM from sd card." this has worked everytime since I rooted. But now when I choose to reboot into recovery and continue the installation it just shows the motorola logo and nothing happens until I do a battery pull then the phone starts up normal. I have tried flashing the clockworld mod recovery again and uninstalling and reinstalling rom manager. (I use premium)
I've had my Droid for a while and finally decided to take the plunge and root it a few days ago. I had initially updated with a Simply Stunning 2.1 ROM, and it went well and was beautiful. I was tempted by the siren's call of Froyo, however, and decided to flash Bugless Beast 0.1 onto my Droid via ROM Manager. I've seen in multiple threads that this is supposed to have Flash and WiFi Tethering native, built into the ROM. Mine, however, did not seem to install these features.
Are there multiple "BB 0.1" releases, and could ROM Manager have grabbed one that did not have these features? I've already grabbed a program to do the WiFi tethering, but Flash is one of the things I had heard worked with this release. Should I reflash the phone? I'm hoping to avoid that as I ended up using Metamorph to apply a really nice theme for it, but I didn't think to check for Flash until I was on a site that uses it and it didn't work.
So I'm running FRF57 and everything works great sans one bug noted today. It seems there is an update for ROM Manager, but when my phone tried to apply the update it just hangs. If I cancel it, Market FCs and then when I relaunch the Market it happens again.
I searched on how to completely remove both of these and one method was using Terminal Emulate. When i tried this method and typed in su to start the process it would say "permission denied". Do i have to reroot my phone again in order to get rid of these two apps? I'm doing this in order to take my phone to verizon. Do you guys think its necessary to make it perfectly clean of any "rooted" things? It is now unrooted it just has those two icons!! so frustrating. read somewhere else that if these icons are still there that i am still rooted...is this true? also I do not care if i lose everything... I just want my phone restored to factory settings so i can take it in to verizon..
Here is the reason for my confusion. There were a lot of back and forth between UD team and Koush with UD 9.8. Ultimately UD withdrew from ROM manager and Koush put up an "unofficial" version of it on ROM manager. Today the UD 10 is now listed on the ROM manager. Is it official? There was a thread about this on DF but the mods closed it with statement" in light of today's events the thread is closed and all comments deleted". So what is going on if anyone knows?
From reading various posts, I feel like I'm one of the few that's not. I'm still flashing ROMs manually with SPRecovery update.zips and nandroid backups but I'm seriously thinking about using Koush's ROM manager. What are the advantages/disadvantages? Is it stable?
So every time I open up ROM Manager and click on anything it says "You must have CLockworkMod recovery installed before continuing! Install the recovery through ROM Manager first." Then gives an "Install" and "Cancel" button. What should I do. I have the bootstrap loader installed. Just upgraded to premium because I support the dev.
Can't download any CyanogenMod ROMs from ROMManager. I have the paid version and I keep getting download errors because it can't find the host. I verified by grabbing the host off the manifest in ROMManager and pasting that into the browser. No go. It looks like either a domain is moving or got knocked off line.
So I followed droid-life.com instructions on rooting and installing Froyo FRF57. I'm currently running Froyo but thought it would be nice to upgrade my ROM to Jrummy Kangerade 1.0. So I paid for the premium Rom Manager and have tried doing the backup Rom feature. It reboots my phone and does nothing. No backups appear in Rom manager.
Okay, so I said forget it. I'll just install the ROM. So it goes through the whole process and says it needs to reboot and then nothing happens. It doesn't reboot at all. I try manually rebooting and it doesn't do anything. Is there a trick to make this software start working?
Very simple can we use Koushik's ROM Manager / Clockwork recovery rom to restore past Nandroids created using SPRecovery .0.99.3b? Even if I boot right into the clockwork ROM and perform a restore from the ROM itself like we do with SPRecovery. Or do I have to push SPRecovery back in order to restore my archived ROM's and other dev's ROMs that use SPRecovery.. like Pete, AdamZ, Chevy, etc. I'm sure it's been answered but I also can't be the only one who's unclear.
I am currently running NexBeast 0.1. I am having issues updating ROM manager in the market. I have v188.8.131.52 with ClockworkMod 184.108.40.206. Every time I try to update in the market, ROM manager downloads and then never tries to install. If I hit the cancel download button I get a FC from the market and when I re-open the market it's still stuck on cancel download.
Do you need to put SetCPU on the exclude list? I suppose you would in order to run profiles. Otherwise what would happen, it would stay at whatever speed it was running if it was killed? Or would it default?
I am running Lithium with the Alternate Black Theme right now. I want to stick with Lithium but I want to try a different theme. Would it be easier to just download the theme and install over it or would it be okay to install a whole new ROM through ROM Manager?
