    This is the best description of a Kernel yet. I didn't understand it until you just said that. Thanks DroidXcon!

    the update.zip is so that you can enter clockwork since i have it preinstalled on this flash....from clockwork you will be able to flash those extras that you want

    To steal from DroidXcon's analogy earlier, if I am understanding this correctly, the update.zip file is the key to the gate that gets you into the goodness that is the clockwork recovery world

    You are welcome, but NOTE: that is not exactly a fair equiavalent of what a kernel is but its a great analogy, to put it in simple terms. I make catch some heat for it....another description would be a kernel is a software version of a CPU.

    I get it! I think. So when I flash those other zip files, the update.zip doesn't need to be touched either? It is more or less a placeholder to make sure I am able to flash? BTW, DroidXcon and Adrynalyne are awesome! If this works, OTA updates are finished with me! This is awesome!

    Once the update.zip is on your sd card you will come to a screen with blue lettering when you first boot into clockwork recovery. Hit the volume down button once so apply sdcard:update.zip is highlighted and hit the home key. This will take you into red clockwork recovery which is what you need to flash anything in Froyo. That is the only way you will be "touching" the update.zip once it is on your sd card

    So then after I hit the update.zip file it will then take me to where I can flash the other fun files I need to flash?!

    yes, once you are in red cwm just scroll to install zip from sd card, find the roms you downloaded to your sd card and want to flash, highlight one and hit either the power button or the back button. When you are done flashing the one or ones you want, hit the menu button to go back to the main red cwm page where you can reboot your phone. Enjoy! But be warned, it gets addicting. It is a disease known by two common names - gunnering or sheepdogging.

    My poor wife. She was competing against Angry Birds, now this. Oh well! Perfect. This is what I needed. I am officially on Froyo on my phone. Now to just re-download all my stuff. Android Central is the best. Thanks to you all again!

    Been there done that. Been numerous times I got so frustrated I wanted to throw my phone. Don't let it get to you. Take it from me, it gets soooo much better and easier. Just keep reading the forums and asking questions. There are a couple of methods in this thread that people have had some success with:

    http://forum.androidcentral.com/veri...w-battery.html

    The method that actually worked best for me was this:

    Follow the battery life thread instructions about charging to 100%, power off and keep it charging til it hits 100% again, turn it back on, charge back to 100%.

    Then power off, reset battery stats, and run your battery down to 5-7% off that single charge. Plug back in, and charge back to 100% (preferably with the phone off, like overnight).

    I just put on EB01 and went to camera and it says I do not have the latest firmware. Which one do I do Phone/CAM FW Ver Check or Phone FW Ver Check or Phone to CAM FW Write?

    if you flashed with odin you do have clockwork installed, thats why i packaged it...
    make sure the update.zip is on your sdcard


    from off state,,,,vol up+down+powerbutton,,,hold till you see samsung flash twice then let go...then go to apply sdcard:update.zip, press the home key and it will lead you into clockwork

    If you flashed to EB01 using the method in this thread, you have clockwork installed. It it built in. Not sure if this build has the full power menu (contains reboot and recovery) when you long press the power button, but if it does you can get to clockwork by choosing recovery from that menu. Otherwise with the phone off you can hold down the volume up, volume down, and power buttons until you see the samsung logo flash twice. When you see it the second time, let go of all the buttons. You will be in blue cwm. use volume down to highlight apply sdcard:update.zip and hit the home button. This will take you into red clockwork.
