[SOLVED]Roll back Ice Cream Sandwich to an ext4-based ROM
I was using quite a few different ROMs for a while, but I bricked my phone this morning (not sure what happened). CWM wouldn't come up and the phone simply couldn't boot.
I fixed it by running ODIN and going back to stock.
I then tried CM9, but my girlfriend's phone is having some serious graphic issues and my phone is acting a little slow in comparison to how it used to when I was running some other ROMS. I need to be running something a little less "bleeding edge".
I want to go back to ext4, but I constantly get update notifications from Sprint that won't go away. What ROMs are out there that are completely updated?
Tons and tons of the links out there are dead and apparently 1-click-root doesn't work on anything passed Gingerbread?
What should I do?
Stock sucks. I hate RFS and how slow my phone is again. I've got tons of Sprint bloatware on my phone now and I want it gone! lol

Re: Want to convert EL30 to ext4
Alright, attempting to install SyndicateROM1.2 is unfruitful after all these months. Not sure why. The install completes, but the first time I boot the phone (and I tried from scratch multiple times) it just hangs on the boot logo.
What did work however, is [ERA] Long way to go ROM
SO! Here's my whole successful process:
I used ODIN to return to stock
[How to] Factory Restore (or Fix a Bricked Phone)
I allowed one OTA update to FroYo
Download RFS2ext4 here:
(Do not convert to ext4 until you also have the ROM zip also on your SD card)
No update notifications now
I hoped I helped someone

I have clearly either entertained and/or offended someone. I apologize; I meant to do neither.
I deleted all the questionable content in this thread. I also wrote a long reply. Dumb, I know, but I deleted it; I was mad when I read your comments.
Look, I see you're a ROM developer, so I'll just say this instead: Thank you. You have no idea how much I appreciate your work.
I was misinformed. I am sorry.
I only began this thread because my girlfriend's and my phones were messed up. I needed to go back to something stable.
Most people find the idea of going back to ext4 ludicrous. Thus, there is little help out there for someone wanting to do it.
This thread was me asking for help. Since I got none, I came back and shared my successful process to help others.

As for k0nane, he has always had a humorous side to his posts. Don't take it too seriously, he is a well respected developer in the Epic 4g and other devices communities. We have him to thank for CIQ (Carrier I Q ) removal long before Samsung and Sprint made it official.

Re: [SOLVED]Roll back Ice Cream Sandwich to an ext4-based ROM
I appreciate the explanations, guys. Thanks for the advice, too!
I'm trying CleanGB now; it seems pretty cool.
So far, no hiccups that came with my previous ROM.
I clocked ~57 FPS in Neocore. 1350 in (the now despised) Quadrant.
Performance seems smooth.
If I remain happy with this for a few days, I think I'll give this a go on the girlfriend's phone. Hers is always more picky, for some reason.
