    Once the conversion is complete, the backup/restore that it is doing you can flash your ROM.

    This may be a dumb question but can i not run my previous factory state with this new ext4? Seems after i reboot it just hangs on the samsung and i am thinking its cause i dont have a rom picked and i can no longer use the ota rooted one i had prior to converting to ext 4?

    1. You didn't complete the conversion by booting into CWM, which you have now figured out and done.

    2. You need to flash a EXT4 based ROM. If your on EB13 and going to flash a EC05 based ROM you will need to flash the EC05 modem in Odin before flashing the ROM.

    I have a Samsung epic and just recently did the froyo update. I rooted my phone per your instructions and it works great but I need to unroot the phone because I have no clue whats wrong with it so I was gonna take it into sprint. How do I go about unrooting the phone? could you please point me in the right direction because I cant find the info..

    Btw have you ever heard of the phones screen turning blueish before? also to answer calls I need to use the speaker phone just to hear the call. Is this something I could fix on my own by following a tutorial on this site?

    Sorry for the questions, any and all help with these issues would be greatly appreciated.

    Procedure #1 will give you Froyo EB13 and Procedure #2 will give you Eclair 2.1 (DI18)

    [How to] Factory Restore (or Fix a Bricked Phone)

    Then after you complete one of the two above procedures I would then upgrade to EC05 again either by the OTA update or use the manual "update.zip" method found in the post below. This way your phone will appear as it should, updated to EC05 when you bring it in but in complete stock form with no sign of previous rooting.

    I upgraded to EC05 stock and then rooted with the stock RFS method. I would like to root with EXT4, but I'm a little confused. From reading through all the posts I think I need to odin back to eb13 or can I just flash it with clockwork and then follow the steps to root with EXT4. I just need to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks for the help. ^^;

    The method I have been using is as follows

    - Froyo EC05 stock rooted with CWM 2.5.1.0. (Doesn't matter if you did all this manually to achieve root or used the Odin prerooted package we offer)

    - Download your EC05 based ROM of choice and place on SD card

    - Go here and download the . Then extract the contents to a location/folder on your computer.

    4. On your phone, push MENU, then select Applications > Development, then enable USB debugging and connect your phone to your computer via USB.


    5. Now double click "run.bat" in the folder from Step 2.

    The type of USB cord and the specific USB computer port can make or break the success of this installation. If you are getting errors in the command prompt during this step, trying swapping USB cables and/or switching USB ports (even the USB cord that came with the phone can cause problems!).



    If the command prompt asks you to restart adb, you need to go into Windows Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del on your keyboard) and end adb in the process tab, then go into the folder from Step 2 and double-click on the "adb" file to restart adb.

    If the command prompt says "device not connected", disconnect the phone and reboot it, turn debugging mode back on, reconnect the phone via USB, and rerun the "run.bat" file again. If you're still getting "device not connected", try repeating these steps one at a time or in a different order, for example just kill adb and rerun "run.bat" or only reboot the phone and then rerun "run.bat".

    Antivirus programs can also cause problems. If you still can't get the run.bat file to work, try disabling your antivirus software.


    If all goes well your command prompt should look something like this:




    6. Pull the battery on your phone and replace then press and hold (volume down+camera+power) or use the soft reset (volume up+camera+power) then quickly switch to (volume down+camera+power), until you see the Clockwork screen that has orange text. Clockwork v3.0.0.6 will now automatically convert your filesystem from RFS to EXT4. This may take a while. Once Clockwork is finished DO NOT reboot. First proceed to Step 7 below.

    7. Now before you reboot, you need to flash the EC05 based ROM you downloaded and placed on your sdcard before you started all this. Once the flashing is complete, you can now reboot and enjoy your new EXT4 filesystem


    This is what I have done and it seems to work so far. Any troubles please post here.

    ROM

    Default EXT4 and ECO5

    I recently rooted my epic and I wanted to upgrade to EXT4 and enjoy all its wonderful benefits (not the mention roms that take advantage of it). Since I have 2.2 ECO5, it seems that I must first downgrade to EB13 in order to do this. The guides I'm finding on how to do that say that I must first be on stock eclair, and the only way I know how to do this is just to wipe my phone back to factory settings, THEN install EB13, then EXT4, THEN some rom with EC05, and then finally restore all my apps and settings..

    This seems rather convoluted, but I'm willing to do it (also suggestions for shortcuts much appreciated), but is there a strong possibility that we will soon be able to upgrade to EXT4 while on EC05? I mean I don't want to wait forever, but if it's right around the corner...

    Will Procedure 1 wipe my phone or just give me root access?

    I just odined back to DI18(Eclair) and let the phone install the EC05 update to froyo. I want to root it and convert of the ext4 to put MidNight Rom v5.1 on it. From what I am seeing on the rooting post you have to be on eb13 if you want ext4 or am I wrong?!?

    Thank you very much for the guide Paul, that all makes perfect sense

    That said...something has gone horribly wrong and oh god help me. I installed EXT4 and am pretty sure that all happened smoothly and without problem. When I went to flash my rom however, I realized that in my frenzy of downloading and transferring files, I had extracted the zip to my sd card instead of just transferring it. I thought "oh well, I'll just mount my phone and drag it over" but trying to mount through clockwork kept giving me errors. So then I attempted to just boot the phone, so I could just mount it the old fashioned way, but it wouldn't get past the samsung screen.

    I then pulled the battery and did a factory wipe. Still won't load past the samsung screen. Then I used restore to get all my data back...still nothing. I did a factory wipe again and still nothing. What happened to my phone?? ;_;

    Since you did the conversion process the only thing that is going to allow you to boot at this point is by flashing a EC05 based ROM like Bonsai/midNIGHT/Syndicate.

    If you have access to a computer/laptop that has a built in sdcard reader you can pull your sdcard out of your phone and load the ROM onto it that way.

    Otherwise you will have to Odin back to EB13 or Eclair if using your phone is the only way to load things via sdcard/cable.

    Thanks! I realized this morning after posting this that I could just take the sd card out of my phone and put it directly into my computer. Once I did that, everything worked!

    Thanks for this Paul. I'm tempted to do this. I should wipe my phone before converting to ext4, correct?

    That isn't really going to matter before the conversion... After the conversion is complete and you have gone back into CWM 3.0.0.6 and its fully completed with the conversion then yes, wipe 3x on everything and then flash your ROM.

    Did the instructions I provided work for you? Step by step? Just wondering so we can verify this for others to use.
