Or you can download them directly from a browser on your phone, click the notification when the download is complete and install from your download folder.08-02-2012 07:25 PM
- A the moment I am temporarily restoring to FF18ROOT as I kept getting calander and such errors and couldn't get anywhere. I also downloaded the GAPPS onto my desktop....
If I understand this all correctly
1: Download Mobile Odin Lite onto phone (done)
2: place it's add on onto my card
3: place el26 onto card
4: place Calkins onto card
5: place CM9 onto card
somehow install them????? not certain what to do after I get them onto the card.
The flashing down to the ICS root was easy, the flashing to EL29 was easy, but no clue how to go to EL26 and the rest. It's not very clear.08-02-2012 07:37 PM
- 1) Flash the rooted FF18 Odin one click, and use the Full Restore version since you have to wipe all your data anyways.
2) Download Mobile Odin Lite, the flash kernel, CM9 ROM zip, GAPPs zip, EL26 kernel TAR file, and Calkulin format all zip
3) Extract the Mobile Odin Lite and flash kernel APKs from the ZIPs and place them on your sdcard.
4) Move all the other ZIPs (ROM, GAPPs, kernel, Format All) to your SD card without extracting them (keep as ZIP files)
5) Navigate to your Mobile Odin Lite APK with a file explorer and click it to install
6) Navigate to your Mobile Odin flash kernel APK with a file explorer and click it to install
Edit - Before you load Mobile Odin, you may want to download the App GPS Status and load it. When you get a GPS lock, then load Mobile Odin and continue on with the steps below. Having your phone reboot while you have a GPS lock could save you from having to fix it later. This means you may need to step outside to get a GPS lock.
7) Load Mobile Odin (grant Superuser permission)
8) Hit "Open file ..." from the menu and choose the EL26.TAR file. If you scroll back up, you will see that Mobile Odin placed that file in the Kernel section.
9) Scroll back down to the Flash section and choose "Flash firmware"
10) After the flash your phone will reboot, as soon as the phone hits the SGSII screen (white letters) hold down your power button to power off your phone.
11) Boot directly into CWM recovery by holding down Vol UP + Power at the same time. You have to hold them down for several seconds. Just keep holding until you see the recovery screen
12) Hit Vol Up, Vol Down, Vol Up, Vol Down until you see the message that the power button has been enabled to select (or something along those lines)
* Vol Up and Vol Down to navigate up and down the menus and Power button to select
13) Then choose "install zip from sdcard" --> "choose zip from sdcard" --> navigate to Calkulin's Format All.zip and select to flash it
14) Repeat steps in #13 to flash the CM9 ROM zip then the GAPPs zip
* So the flashing order in CWM is Calkulin Format All, CM9 ROM, GAPPs.
15) Select "Go Back" to the first screen and select "Reboot Now"
The first boot will take awhile since your Dalvik Cache was wiped. Don't freak and think something went wrong. Just give it time.
Enjoy CM9!08-02-2012 07:52 PM

- [09.07.2012] Mobile ODIN v3.00 [ROOT] - xda-developers

- Ok ya all I have been finding this is the problem with ICS on several problems, cache is not clearing with the update. Example: Swype keyboard will not work after update- clear cache in applications and you are all good, same thing goes for foxfi uninstall and reinstall and you are good. But most important is battery life- "pull battery and put back in- hold volume up and power button at the same time till u get a weird screen- use your vol button to scroll to clear cache- when complete select system reboot- when the phone comes back on you should get a message that states android update complete...and hopefully all issues are gone.08-03-2012 07:23 AM
- Jay was assisting me with trying to upgrade to CM9, but I botched somehting. I ended up trying to install a Calkins ROM instead of Calkins wipe all program. As I needed a phone for today, i ended up re-rooting back to FF18 root and I can tell a pretty significant difference between this and Sprints "upgrade". Not certain on battery life yet as I am presently streaming music from a radio station. BUT it is running butter smooth. Going to try the CM9 upgrade again this weekend. Fingers are crossed.08-03-2012 07:41 AM
- twin laker, yesterday i tried the 'battery pull weird screen thing' you speak of and all seemed like it was running fine after that as far as battery life and smoothness of screen interface. I was pretty excited about this being the answer. I woke this morning,I have had the phone on for 2 hours and i am down to 85% on battery and falling fast.With doing nothing on the phone.08-03-2012 08:01 AM
- As of right now, I have used 20% battery in 2.5hours. BUT that includes streaming music for over an hour! and playing angry birds free for 10 minutes. I am peaking the battery right now. My android OS percentage was only 5%, Angry birds was over 40% and screen was over 60%. I will update on battery later tonight.08-03-2012 08:22 AM

- Strangely enough, i let my phone set overnight (about 8 hours) a few nights ago before i did the 'battery pull, weird screen thing' and it lost only 6% overnight sitting on kitchen counter.
Android OS this morning was 22% when i got to work (office environment). It has now jumped to 41% without any use.08-03-2012 09:20 AM
My 4 year old does the same thing.
