    Make sure you leave your battery in the device when flashing via Odin.
    Yeah, I forgot I had this in this thead. I posted a different thread when I thought I was totally bricked and someone told me about that. I finally got it flashed about 3am last night!

    Thanks!

    Hey all, I need some help. I installed the new ROM and had this happen...

    The stock browser keeps crashing when flash is used (like when loading a moving weather map), even though I have flash installed. This never happened before I rooted to the unbloated version. Is there an .apk file that I can download? Will it help to install that and overwrite the current browser?

    Well kejar31 release GummyCharge GBE 2.0RC yesterday. It's built on the EP1W release. I went ahead and flashed it. So far, so good! Quadrant scores are 2400 - 2500. She's definitely fast. This is just an RC release so there isn't nearly as many goodies and extras like on GC FE 2.0.
    any more info on this? do you have a link? Interested!

    I havent seen it yet, but running bootcamp or windows in a VM should yield the same results as doing it on a PC. Never did it before so I do not know what kinds of issues you are gonna run into

    Well after running GC GBE 2.0 for a bit, there were a few quirks that I didn't like so I ended up flashing back to GC FE 2.0.

    I hope this isn't the final build as there are some small issues that bother me.

    When the phone rings the first half of the first ring is quiet and then gets loud.

    When waking the phone it flashes the main screen briefly and then the lock screen.

    The data toggle is missing from the list when you long press the power key.

    And while the data is doing better it still loses connection occasionally.


    I think I'm going to flash back and try my luck with Gummycharge.

    I am guessing that since the leak was 30 days old by the time we got it, there was more work done on it since then. As I stated in the OP, I think it is close to the Official.

    I too noticed some quirks with it, but for the most part it seemed pretty stable and I have been using the modem on GC since the first day they came out with a lot of success.

    Nothing is official until it is.

    Im back down to stock EE4 with the EP1W modem. The lag in Froyo is very evident now that Ive seen the much snappier Gingerbread leak .

    If I Odin GC 1.91 is there any real need to CWM 2.0?

    yes, here is the changelog:
    *Custom kernel by IMoseyON
    *TSMparts for modifications (more information below on usage)
    *updated toolbox for simplicity (sorry no GUI 2.0 released at this time)
    *updated base Theme (we did switch to a blue to give 2.0 a new look as it feels like a new rom)
    *updated dialer completely remade to have the contacts built into the app

    TSM parts alone makes it worth it. Some good speed tweaks in there.

    Your right though, Froyo stock is a laggy girl compared to even a custom FROYO ROM

    ok here's a noob question. I have an un-rooted, stock EE4 Charge. Where do I go from there? Will it wipe out all my apps and completely flash my phone blank?

    the answer is yes and no. If I was in your shoes, here is what I would do to save myself ALL kinds of time.

    First follow the sticky on how to root any phone at the top of the forum. That flashes a kernel and will not mess with the OS, apps or data. Once you do that download either mybackuppro (my choice but YMMV) or Titanium backup. Back up all your APKs and Data (not sure about TiBup, but with Mybackuppro, you can backup your call log and text log, I would back those up to)

    next I would flash the Rom of my choice (do the research but my preference would be GC 1.91 then onto GC 2.0)

    Install whatever backup program you had and do a restore.

    If you follow the instructions correctly, you will be close to where you started, only rooted, on a custom ROM and have a faster phone.

    When I say that you will be close I mean that. Not all your settings will return, and some of the tweaks you had made won't necessarily return either.

    In the long run, you may be better off.

    Guys I am hoping someone can help. I have downloaded the debloated ver. of ep1w and I am using odin1.82 to try and flash it to my charge. my charge is running un rooted stock ee4. my application devolp. settings are on usb debugging. For some reason when I click the start button it fails

    This is exactly what kept me up until 2 am last week! LOL

    When I finally broke down and asked for help, I was told I needed to leave my battery in the phone during flashing. How you do that is take the battery out in order to get it ot download mode, Once there, reinsert the battery. Then proceed as normal.

    Of course, you'll have to remove the battery in order to reboot the phone after it flashes. It's just somethig strange with the Charge. I flashed my Fasicnate many times and never had to do that.

    Have fun!

    Just an FYI for anyone reading this thread. I have used ODIN numerous times on my Charge so far and have had no problems getting into download mode, flashing in ODIN, and rebooting my phone all while leaving the battery in the whole time. I know many people say you have to pull the battery first, connect the phone to the usb, get the connection in ODIN, then put the battery back in before flashing. But I have left the battery in through the whole process and haven't had one problem yet. Just saves you the hassle of having to take whatever cover you have off, taking the back off, removing the battery, and remembering to put the battery back in before flashing.

    For some reason I can never get into download mode with the battery in the phone(Ive tried numerous times and the phone just continues through the boot process). What is nice about the ROM I am on now is that there is an option to boot into download mode when you long press the power key.

    I never can either from a stock ROM, but as you said, with the power button menu on any of the custom roms, I reboot directly into DL mode and roll from there

    Hey Piizadude, I appreciate this advice, it actually clarified a number of things for me about rooting (I'm a newbie, obviously).

    However, I was wondering if you knew of any ways to back up your data without that initial root? You see, while the speed and battery upgrades are certainly enticing, I am also interested in upgrading to Gingerbread because I've heard that it actually has Skype Videochat, which is currently lacking on my factory build Charge (apparently Skype can't figure out how to access the FFC in Froyo). I would prefer not to have to root my phone multiple times, but if I have to, I probably will.

    Alternatively, if someone knows of a fix for the Skype issue, I'd love to hear about it. (And no smart *** comments about using a mirror, please )

    I'm on Froyo (although admittedly rooted as well) and the hacked Skype from here works - including front-facing camera! Apparently since I installed it they have updated the version, which can be found here - I would assume that one would also work, although I cannot attest to that personally. I'm not positive that you would need to be rooted for this to work (the threads linked above should have more info on that), but my gut says that you would at minimum need to have the Unknown sources box checked under Settings > Applications. Hope that helps!

    If I am getting your question right, then no. That will give you root access to do a variety of things but you would have to go to a customized ROM (Gummy, Humble).

    Or another option is an app called quickboot. It will allow you to boot right into download mode.
