Samsung Moment :: Use Sprint Update Utility To Flash Custom Kernel

Mar 1, 2010

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.

Samsung Moment :: Custom Kernel - Partial Audio Buffer And Optimizations

Dec 29, 2009

Don't know if anyone over here cares, but zefie over on SamsungMomentForum.com released a custom kernel with a bunch of fixes. Including a partial audio buffer fix, and a bunch of tweaks and optimizations. Also, persistent root so you can run a bunch of those programs on the market that require it. No WiFi tethering yet, but it is being worked on. Not sure if this includes the battery notification fix because I had already installed CL14 the other day and it's been working for me ever since. This was not difficult to install, once you have the software and drivers required, the update takes less than 30 seconds.

Here's a link:
Time for the first custom "ROM" (well kernel)

Samsung Moment :: Joeys Kernel And Get Stock Kernel Back

Jun 11, 2010

where I have got right now on my phone, which is:

1. I updated to stock 2.1 using the sprint update tool.
2. I followed the video tutorial to root the phone
3. then i used joey's page (http://www.joeyconway.com/sdx/custom/index.php) to install the his kernel (joeykrim-SDX-kernel v2.0.4 (includes root)).

I have done nothing else to the phone but this and removing a couple of bloatware apps (i checked the list of permitted deletions before i removed anything.) I have not installed a new recovery..at least i dont think that I did as part of one of the other operations I performed (as an aside, i am not really sure what the custom recovery is or what it is used for, so i didnt install it...i guess i need to read up more...)

So that is where I am..but i have a couple of questions.

1) i am now having issues with my wifi connection - the signal reception is very spotty in areas where i should have atleast 2 bars of reception, and the wifi often cuts out completely....Is there any know corellation between joey's kernel and this wifi issue? I have searched the forums and have found nothing that answers this.

2) Is there an easy way to get back to the stock kernel? I have read that i can get back to stock everything by using the sprint download center where I did my original 2.1 update. But is there a way to get back to just the stock kernel without wiping the phone?

HTC Eris :: Can One Update Kernel Only - Not Flash Whole ROM

Jul 27, 2010

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?

General :: YProDuos GT-B5512 - Flash New ROM But Why Update Kernel

Apr 6, 2013

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?

Samsung Moment :: Sprint Cup Mobile Update

Feb 14, 2010

Today I launched the sprint cup app and it said I needed an update. Then I proceeded to download and install the app. I told the phone to install from unknown sources, so that isn't the issue. Then when it went too install it still told me that this app could not be installed. I'm guessing since the way that sprint treats their apps they aren't able to be upgraded via the file from the memory card or something.

Samsung Moment :: Does Sprint Nav Update Cause Screen Blackouts?

Mar 8, 2010

Two days ago (Saturday) I reflashed the CL14 update because my phone was constantly locking up (as in an eternal sleep that cannot be woken up, and the phone cannot be turned on unless the battery had been removed first) or going into the fake airplane mode.So, I installed about 10 different apps to start... the phone continued to work wonderfully all the way until just now.About 1 hour ago I ran the update on Sprint Navigation. An hour later, LOCKUP!I'm going to see if it locks up again. Then I'm going to reflash CL14 AGAIN and not update Sprint Nav.

Samsung Moment :: Can't Add Joey's Kernel / Why Is So?

Aug 16, 2010

After looking high and low, I cannot for the life of me figure out why I cannot flash Joey's Vernal through the SW Updater. I have followed the instructions like it said at the SDX site, but when I remove the official 2.1 update from the binary folder and add his kernel, I cannot start download in the updater.

When I click start download at the end, It would give me the "Cannot open bin file" error. I've tried numerous times on 2 different computers (Windows XP & Windows 7). I'm lost at this point. Oh and I'm rooted "I think" because I'm able to see SDX at the top of the recovery screen. Just trying to apple this kernel and its driving me insane

Samsung Moment :: Joey's Kernel - DE03 - SDX

May 27, 2010

Does the Source SDX kernel (joey's) require the phone to be rooted prior to installing?

Or, can the SW Updater be used with this kernel on an official (unrooted) 2.1 Moment?

If so, which version of the SW Updater can be used (and where do you get it)?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Want Custom Lock Screen To Flash

Apr 28, 2010

I'm looking to find out if there are any custom lock screens I can flash. I don't like lockbot, as it bogs my phone on occasion. I've seen a few clear lock screens I haven't been interested in. I'm looking for a lock screen like eclair, or one of those that you slide left and right. Anyone know if 1) you can flash custom lock screens and 2) if so do you know where I can get one like what I described? Thanks!

Samsung Moment :: How Is Custom Rom Community For Moment?

Dec 26, 2009

I've been eyeing the Moment and have toyed around with it and the Hero at the Sprint store. Why is it that people seem to prefer the Hero to the Moment almost 2 to 1? It seems to me that the specs are better, screen is nicer, and the UI can be customized to be as "pretty" as the Hero. Is there something I'm missing?

On a similar note, how is the custom rom community for the Moment? I know there are a number of roms available for the Hero, but I can't even find anything in development for the Moment. I'm not even clear that it can be rooted yet (definitely want to do that so I can install to the SD card).
