I've got a Samsung Epic 4g (Sprint) and I'm running Kernel 2.6.35.nubernel_v0.0.2 w/ EI22 modem.
I'm waiting for something newer and better and I keep getting Sprint's annoying message about their EL30 update. Hoping something comes along soon... (or if there are recommendations, CM7 looks cool, but should I wait for ICS?)
Anyway, this really begs a bigger questions. When I rooted and moved over, it took me forever after to get all my accounts set up again, all my apps reinstalled, all my music (weird, music was on the SD card, but MusicPlayer couldn't see it. Same for pics). I'd really love to be more adventurous with trying mods, but is there any way to much more easily restore all the rest of the stuff? I have Titanium Backup Pro for DR, but I haven't figured out how to make it restore everything. One of the times I installed a new kernel, I think the Sprint Protection App put back *some* of my apps, but it seemed to do that in a stealthy way, and I didn't see any button anything like "Make it look like Lou's phone again"
Any advice, pointers, would be appreciated. I am digging this kernel, though Bluetooth is giving me problems, can't figure out why, and it locks up now and again. Any advice on a move to a better ROM would be appreciated too, or should I wait?
Naw man, take the plunge, flash that stuff. Tibu is a great app however it will only restore the apps and data it wont reset everything to where it was. It is basically taking a picture of all of your apps and data progress in them and then reinstalling it all on the updates base.
Cm7 is sweet. I ran it for well beyond a year. Have you tried miui, that is is a trip and def one of a kind for Android. When cm9 (ics) drops that will for sure be the way to go. But for now break that custom rom seal and get it done man, you'll be glad you did. Roms are sweet, there are some great developers here and all over the android community so find what works for you and what you like.
I like to make a "flash" list and then after I flash a rom I use tibu (paid version is super fast) then I go down my list and reset everything to how I like it and I'm up ans running in like 20 minutes or less after a fresh flash. Don't forget, though, to make a nandroid before a fresh wipe and flash for safety sake and after a flash give the kernel like 3 to 5 minutes to settle in before you start working it. Thats my best recommendation.
How about it out there, anyone else have any tips? Come on, don't be shy...
Flash the new ics rom, it comes with el30 and wprks pretty nice. I have the same phone and thats what im rockin and i love it
