    Well I tried the GC and I still can't get WinRar to open the file for me so I guess I'll just stick with the phone the way it is. Its still a huge upgrade from the 8830 I had.
    You don't open GummyCharged with winrar. You simply put the GummyCharged zip on your sd card and flash via CWM. Have you flashed CWM via ODIN yet?

    That thread is 115 pages long lol. I may just try the Gummycharge.
    If you're still running stock EE4 on your Charge, follow the link in my sig dude. It takes you through the entire process step-by-step. You will not be disappointed.

    Yes I am still on the stock EE4. So you don't have to unzip any of the zipped files? No I haven't flashed any thing with Odin.

    Again, follow the steps provided in the link in my sig. You need to flash CWM via ODIN first. CWM = Clockwork Mod Recovery. That will replace the factory recovery. Once that is done, you can flash imnuts's PBJT kernel. Then you flash GummyCharged. After that, life will be good.

    If you want to go the Altered Beast way, I believe you can flash his file with ODIN and that does everything all in one shot (Custom ROM and root access) I would read through his thread thoroughly though so you understand what you're doing.

    GummyCharged has the plain AOSP look to it (which I like) AB has a custom layout with different colors, etc.. From what understand. It really boils down to personal preference.

    Yes they are in a file on my computer. Is there something else I should do with them?

    What exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to flash CWM with ODIN?

    I did that too. I have a window on my computer that says Installing USB drivers for Samsung Mobile Phone but after it fills up the bar it doesn't do anything else. I'm just going to hang it up for the day maybe I'll have better luck later.

    You can always try re-installing the drivers. Rebooting the PC or even trying a different USB port.

    Is there a reason why you haven't upgrade to the latest and the greatest? Which version would you recommend me going to?

    No reason... I'm just lazy lol The only difference between 1.8.1 and 1.8.5 is kejar fixed the swype issue. I never use swype, so I never flashed the latest version. The version in the link I posted up above is 1.8.5 even though it says 1.8.

    Well dang. Not really sure what to tell ya other than try doing a search on the forums. More than likely, someone has encountered the same issue you are facing now and found a fix for it.

    Wifi works great. I don't use the Mobile Hotspot application. I use another application for tethering.

    Is that app better in any way? Compared to the stock mobile hotspot? And what is it called?
