Motorola Droid :: Rooted Droid Not Letting Install ROMs
Sep 25, 2010
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.
How much or how little do these rooted roms affect battery life? I am moving from an Eris to Droid and I like the pinch-zoom feature of the Eris and I know there are some Rooted mods for this feature. just curious if my battery life would get a lot worse then Stock. Now I honestly don't know if I would OC the Droid, I need to use it for a week or 2 first before I decide if I want to Root it.
I rooted my x last night, and was wondering where and how to download custom ROMs to theme my droid x. I've been looking around on websites for custom ROMs for the droid x and it's all really confusing.
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.
Everytime I try to install a rom through ROm Manager, after it boots into recovery and starts loading it it just keeps saying it cant mount and that the file isn't found over and over. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? If I try doing it through update.zip it acts like it's installing then just goes back to recovery without doing anything. I have an X and have had no problems modding that so I really don't know what the problem is.
good app for those wanting to take the plunge and do not have time, or worried about messing up. discussed heavily here: App that roots/OCs/multi-touches and tethers for $5 - Page 18 - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum
when u install be prepared to see a balnk screen and wait, but it works real good.
When I switch ROMs on my droid, and boot up the new ROM, sign in to my google account, etc. the market automatically starts downloading all of the apps that I had. Now, like most rooters, I'm using Titanium Backup and restore my apps through that so I keep all of the data and settings as well. How do I stop the market from automatically starting those downloads? All I need to download is TiBu so I can restore all of my backups. The last couple of times I just go into the market and cancel all of the downloads except TiBu but with over 100 apps, that's very time consuming. There has to be an easier way that I haven't found or read about yet.
It's done this before and now that I want to take advantage of the 4 docked icons, it's doing it again. I am going to try a fix permission, but the RAB and LAB show next to the home button, but I can't drag any icons into the spaces allocated for them. The far left and far right are fine, but those are not technically the action buttons.
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.
I finally got 2.01 back onto my phone. It took a new version of RSD lite running as an admin to get it to work.. Now, I want to root this bad boy and install bugbless beast, where can I read up on how to install custom roms?
I rooted with unrevoked but idk how the heck to install the roms i want? and can you even install roms with unrevoked?? plus can i use rom manager? i used this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=787304
I rooted my Droid last night to Froyo 2.2 (Love It). I am an avid boater and I recently found and purchased the Navionics application (Love It Too). Now that i am rooted the Android Marketplace will not find this app. The Navionics tech help dude told me that i couldn't have it if I rooted my phone.... Thats Junk! I still have all the charts on my SD card but there is no application launcher installed. I can't find it anywhere.
What is a good way to find what app is causing the phone not to sleep. I charged the phone last night while on, unplugged this morning and according to Spare Parts, my phone has been running 100%. I've also got System Panel Lite and Battery Left, but I'll be damned if I can't tell what the offending app is. Battery is on Smart Mode, Time Outs are set to 15 min for both Off Peak and Peak.
Good news is 9 hours 36 minutes and I'm still at 50% with an extended Battery and I've done quite a bit of Market searching and downloading, had a few phone calls, sent a few texts, checked the news widget, checked emails, and checked the old facepage a dozen times. (slow day at work)
Anyway, anyone have a good way to check for offending applications?
So i think the Weather Widget is already on one of the screens when you get the phone.... i deleted it and then added it to a different screen....
My problem is this: When i go to add a city by name or zip code and hit search, i see the pop up window for searching for a split second and then it disappears and it doesnt come up with any cities for me to select....
so basicly its not letting me add any cities... anyone else having this problem?
I was rooted on 2.1 and did a factory reset this morning. Now I can download 2.2 but it gets to about 30% through the installation and reboots the phone and then goes to the home screen then it says install failed. I am on my 5th try re-downloading and installing 2.2 with no luck......
So, since switching to 2.2 roms I've been having issues with DLing programs and updating etc from the market. Program will download 100% then hang, wont install. often I have to re-download multiple times until the install starts.
Currently I have an Eris with v3 Leak meaning I can't root. But my wife loves my phone so I plan on giving her mine and either getting another eris and rooting or a Moto Droid and rooting. I've been trying to read up on the Droid and the different ROMS available and have some questions.First I want to make a few things clear:
1. This IS NOT a phone comparison.
2. The Incredilble IS NOT an option since it can't be rooted and I don't want to spend $200 on it.
3. I'm looking for WELL INFORMED OPINIONS, if you don't have one keep moving there is nothing to see here.
To be fair I've obviously done a lot more reading on the Eris which is why I'm looking for well informed opinions from Droid owners that way I can make a well informed decision.
Back when trying to in stall the adb driver for my droid eris. i put the phone in debugging, then i installed the sdk, downloaded the driver, told the install hardware prompt the path to the driver and it still wont install it. i am using the leaked non rooted firmware version 2.1.
Maybe i'm not really seeing anything that stick out to me but could someone please give me an answer.
Whats the difference between a 2.0.1 ROM and 2.1 ROM?
I've been rooted for awhile and always stuck with either AdamZ ROM or Pete's Bugless Beast and they were all based off of 2.0.1. Is there something special I need to do in order to run a ROM based off of 2.1?
Well, it's being reported, however not confirmed that the Droid Incredible has finally been rooted.He's also reporting that he's OCed to 1.5GHz.What's more he's working on 2GHz.Good Lord, could you imagine?I've been saying that as of right now, based on personal preference, that a rooted Droid is the best option.But this will def start to sway opinions, including mine.
I would like to know how many people are useing froyo non-rooted and rooted.I'm tyring to diside on what should i do?I also looking for advice on if i install Froyo Rooted, what can i do with it? and install on it?
I've had my Droid since February and have it rooted. I've been using Smoked Glass v6.0.1 ROM and now I'm ready to change things up. I have ROM manager premium but I'm too overwhelmed by all the choices. I've been trying to research the different ROMs out there but there are too many.
Can we make a list here of what ROMs do what? For instance I've read Bugless Beast is great for speed but Ultimate Droid is better if you want looks and don't care about speed. Don't even get me started on CyanogenMod. There are way to many options with that one.
