So I just went through all 30 pages and I found a few mentions of Clockwork Recovery. I'm curious is installing clockwork through the ROM Manager app and then flashing ThundeROM with that will work?
I'm really looking forward to trying this out, and I'm just worried about and bricking risk and being able to easily swap back to the stock rom if I wanted. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

There was this wallpaper on the stock rom of a snowy mountain that I was quite found of. I went to change wallpaper on this one, and the only options presented are live wallpapers and something from the photo gallery.
Are the original stock photos still there somewhere? Of so, where are they stored?

C1phr do not I mean do not use clockwork recovery it will be your worst mistake ever right now it has been reported this will not make nandroid backups corectly and the way your phone is suppossed to connect to your data/sdcard and ect it dose not work great I had used it and my phone was a vegetable for 2 days and zefie had to hold my hand lol to get me away from what happened so just use the recovery-thunderc-s-RA-v1.2-GNM.img its been working great now hope that helps you stay away from a brick for a while :-)

Not really the roms always are tested really good before released the best thing to look at is the log on what they have done before flashing is a great step on insuring a great rom flash but the thunde rom is solid great rom to flash now it has a lot of great tweaks enabled so your phone with just the rom will fly lol but for anything these step are available change logs for recovery, roms, and kernels, ect.

I don't know if its the same for everyone or not, but my time without signal is over 70%. I live where there is always 3g signal so its not always searching. this is a drain in the battery. I know on my last phone when the rom dev fixed it, we got much greater battery life. just something to thimk about.

Same exact "problem" .... my radio usage on stock was at about 20% a day and now it's at 60-70% and battery has gone down slightly. I thought it was apps but deleted al of them ad did a fresh reflash of ThundeRom and tested it still hovering at 60%. Glad it's not just me (if it was I'd say it was user error lol)....
EDIT - Also forgot to mention that because my phone has never roamed, i dont have that table built so I cant test fixes so I'm going to have to rely on a couple of you guys to test for me once i get the time to play with it. I'll just shoot you a PM.

Also, I'm noticing that it doesn't seem to update my Twitter or Facebook accounts since the upgrade while in standby. I'm assuming this is because Wi-Fi turns off to conserve battery. Is there a way to change this behavior?

Ok I have some q's
I have been stalking in here for a few days reading extensively and have some questions. First this forum Rocks Im a forum junky and never have i seen so much feedback and helpfulness. ok buttkissing out of the way here we go.
caution Major N00bness follows. I have this phone on its way right now and i am looking forward to learning and tweaking and rooting and all that good stuff. Granted I have never done anyone this on cell phones I am not completely lost with coding and computers etc. First Q. Im understanding the sequence as Root, Recovery, then Rom. The root I get, so that we can have root access, the Recovery however i want to make sure i understand. After creating a custom recovery, i can them flash roms tinker tweak and all that and if i get messed up i can "recover" the the state it was at just before flashing the rom?? is that correct? it would recover to more or less factory settings and apps and all the sprint stuff just alreay rooted???
2nd when I get the phone im gathering I will get it all synced up to my sprint account my cell number etc. and get any ota updates i can before rooting. But does this even matter of im just going to flash the rom anyways? are there thing in the ota update that arent replaced by Thunderom? please advise.
last and most n00bish. after I have accomplished all this flashing and Roming. Will the phone still be setup for my phone number or do i have to reactiviate it to my account.
Thanks in advance for anyhelp I plan on being a regular in here.

#2 Kinda...Recovery allows you to flash the Custom ROMs, when rooting it partially helps you to install the custom recovery. Plus it ads a bunch of features that are useful such as Nand Backup's ect. It's up to you but personally I wouldn't set anything up other than getting to the main screen on your phone...it's all going to get erased anyway.
#3 It will not erase carrier information so you shouldn't have to input your carrier information again.
NOTE: It would be a good idea to become familiar with Backup Pro OR Titanium Backup...both are programs to back up your apps, call data, messaging, ect."aliter ictus diversis folks"

OTA updates - I did the update on mine beforehand, but (someone correct me if I'm wrong) I don't think it matters either way as your flashing it anyways. The activation should still be done though before flashing the rom. After the flash, you will not need to reactivate the phone.

thanks for the fast replies this place is pretty awesome. Goodbye Pre hello Andriod. ps gogle just announced the release of "gingerbread" the new os

I know this isn't the place to discuss this so i'll make it quick, rooting only allows you to have BASE control of your phone, thus the term root, like getting to the root of the problem, it gives you all the access the phone has, that the carrier/manufacturer/google(ish) locked you out of. The custom recovery is like a bios just not as much of a control freak. The stock "recovery" on the phone basically is in place to return the phone to factory defaults and allows you to manually update some of your phones firmware, ie. radio. "Custom recovery", depending on the build but in our case, allows you to preform firmware updates and allows us to preform whats called a nandroid backup, kind of like hibernating your computer just not, it saves the phones STATE as a back up allowing you to "recover" to that later. To my knowledge you can save multiple "states" but i could be wrong i have yet to need to preform a recovery. The custom recovery also allows you to replace your existing android OS or your ROM, thus it's necessity to this process. The custom rom is your custom OS. This is linux, for your phone, everything is custom/ported learn to love it.
These ROMs are not easy to make, and take time so make sure when this all works out for you, which it will, it's worked for all of us, make sure you pop on here, and say thanks, and as payment try and help new comers with the process.

Ok, i'm OCing with zefies kernel, running 1.3 rom, and have problems with removing the sd. The phone is functioning but the screen does not refresh this was tested by pressing the lock button, the screen turns off, press the lock button the screen turns on, back to exactly what the previous screen was, only if i put my finger where the slide unlocker is and slide it i feel the pulse telling me the phone unlocked... the problem has manifested itself in other ways, like showing me the unlock screen and unlocking but going to a non functioning home screen, can't drag down notify bar, or change pages, or open menu, or open apps list. The sd card was NOT unmounted for two of the incidences but on the one time the card was unmounted before removal the screen turned to static garbage but like in the first case the display just wasn't updating, i could lock and unlock just couldn't actually see anything but static snow.

Can anyone verify if the wiimote works using this rom?
- 12-07-2010, 05:46 AM #324
The next thing i would do if a new sd card doesn't fix it, is to wipe dalvik and wipe cache and then flash the ROM over top of itself. This won't wipe your factory data so your contacts and texts and stuff will stay in tact. This will put you back onto the stock kernel. The reason i suggest that is we don't trouble shoot devices that aren't running what we provide.
This is not done to be mean or an attempt to not help anyone but kernels control the interaction between the software and the hardware. Someone could make the best ROM in the world but a problem with a kernel will ruin the experience and who do people usually go see? The ROM developer. Now same goes for kernel devs though they could have an amazing kernel but if it's packaged with a crappy ROM, it makes their kernel look bad. It is this reason alone that rule #1 of reporting a bug in post #2 exists ...
