    hey guys so just flashed the ROM, first off great job DroidX its awesome, I had performed the EE4 update prior to flashing and afterwards Im back on ED2 and the phone is prompting me to do a system update however when I allow the phone to perform it, the phone starts the update and about halfway through it stops and a triangle with the android appears and the phone just freezes on that screen untill I pull the battery. Any options? Thanks in advance!
    My understanding is that AB4 is an ED2 based ROM meaning that if you have the EE4 update, AB won't work - although some have claimed that they have done this, I'm not sure how... seems to me it shouldn't work.

    My guess is that - if you flashed AB4 - you ended up with voodoo enabled. Accepting the EE4 update while on voodoo would likely be the problem. Assuming this is correct, I believe your only option would be to un-voodoo and reflash ED1 downgrade and then decide what to do from there. Take the EE4 update and go with Gummy ROM (along with voodoo, cwm - read how to do this), or wait for DroidXcon to bring his ROM up to EE4. Personally I am waiting a few more days on ED2/AB4.1.1 before bailing on his rom because I like it so darn much.

    I'll gladly accept any and all corrections. Coming from an OG Droid, I am new to alot of this Samsung stuff.

    It will be great to have a fully working cwm with backup/restore so its easier to bounce around and try different ROMs, but for now it is what it is.

    Good luck.

    I just changed all five ED2's in build.prop to EE4, then rebooted. It worked on my Charge and 2 others I did it to too - no more update notifications. Patiently waiting for updated AB :-)
    This worked for me on 2 of my AB Charges as well. The third is stock on EE4

    Did you have to do anything to your phones to get it to accept the update?

    To be clear, one phone is bone stock which was updated from ED1 to ED2 to EE4. The other 2 are still on ED2 / AB 4.1.1. I merely changed the build.prop on those 2 phones from ED2 to EE4 so I'd quit getting update notifications. I'm waiting for an EE4 update for AB (v5?) on those 2 phones.

    You should be able to flash back to ED1 if you need to. My phone was on OTA EE4, so I flashed back to ED1, updated to EE4 than flashed AB4. The original flash to ED1 may have been unnecessary but whatever, better to be safe. When you flash to AB4, your radio will be stuck in ED2 until DroidXCon releases another update.

    hope this helps.

    Here's my question. I flashed back to ED1.. but seem to have lost root once I OTA EE4. Well, Ad-Free says "Unable to locate a partition to the remount to write the hosts file to". This works fine in ED1 or ED2. Anyways.. I'd love to have AB4 back.. running stock at the moment, can't even boot into recovery. Whats best route to go at this point while waiting for an EE4 rom?

    Try flashing back to ED1 then flash AB4. Don't update to EE4. I rooted last night and I did:
    ED1 Flash->update to OTA EE4-->flash AB4. I followed the link below. I skipped the final step as AB 4.1.1 may or my not work with EE4 (there are conflicting stories, best to wait for a new AB update!)

    Good Luck.

    This is a good method. I went back to ed1 took the ed2 ota update then EE4. then installed AB4.1.1 and it has Baseband ver: EE4/SCH-I510.EE1
    build # ED2. No problems. I like AB so much when I was on stock for 30 mins doing the update I couldn't wait for AB v 5. DroidX has MIA. I'll buy him a nice Starbucks gift card when hes got AB v 5 on board.

    lol yes i have , Basically i have been trying to learn Java and other Dev. type things. I have been working hard to get the next version out but i wanted to get you guys EE4 version with a more complete look so gunnermike and i have been working pretty hard , the biggest thing holding me up right now is the launcher. Im starting to consider switching to AOSP launcher (Although im really sick of it) because it gives me those most flexibility setting up the widgets the way i want them to come with the ROM.

    So if anyone knows any really good launcher that are OPEN source let me know

    Go / ADW / launcher pro are not as flexible as you may think.

    Honestly, stick with AOSP if it gives the most flexibility, leave it to users choice for a different launcher so you don't have to mess with it.. imho

    Traded my Droid X2 in for the Charge yesterday, and immediately started reading up on the root processes and roms. Took me a few hours to fully understand it all (roms, updates, what not-to-do's, etc.) Presently, I'm sitting at AB 4.1.1 w/ ED2, unending update notifications, and patiently (trying) waiting for DroidXcon to release an updated version of AB with support for EE4. I originally came off of the LG Optimus from VM, rooted and tweaked to the hilt. With the exception of Netflix not working on the Charge (I have no desire to mess with the build prop), I've got to say that this phone is by far the best of the three.
    I've only owned android phones for a few months now, but I have to say that DroidXcon and gunnermike (others?) have done one hell of a job with this rom.
    I don't post in these forums very often, I can pretty much find an answer to whatever I have questions about with a little time and effort on my part. But I must say...You, sir, have my respect.

    This is to DroidXcon... Also Thanks for the great work for you and gunnermike.. I really enjoyed AB
    I seen somewhere you mentioned your SD card got hosed. Mine is brand new and came with the my Droid Charge. It too got hosed today. I was on AB 4.1 and just loaded GummyCharged1.5. I wonder if this is just a coincidence? But anyways, I went to scandisk.com and chatted with support. They have a 5 year warranty so they emailed me a RMA and shipping label. Thought maybe if yours is screwed up, you might want to try the same. I am unable to read it even on a computer. It was working after the GummyCharge Root. Just thought the info might help. They did not request to see proof of purchase.

    I liked LauncherPro so much back on my DROID X that I bought it. I have used the code on the version installed on your ROM and it works perfectly. If you remove it for future builds, I can still install it myself if I so choose, right?

    BTW, Thanks again for all of your hard work, along with the hard work of the others who help make this 'hobby' so entertaining. I only wish I had the talent you folks have so I could pitch in and help out some. I guess my lot in life is to be the guena pig.

    Thanks again!

    Not trying to be impatient but does anyone know how much longer it would be for the new version to come out? I am ready to update.

    On a different note thanks so much to droidxcon for this awesome rom!

    Voted! Good work droidxcon and team! Keep it up.

    Droidxcon, I posted in the vote thread a rom comment that I probably should have put here. Please take a peak as I can't move it and I don't want to double post it.

    Thanks!

    Somewhere earlier in this thread someone asked for the stock Desk Cradle app to be added back in, which is great since I use it all the time. It turns out that the weather function of the cradle app is looking for a location from Daily Briefing, which we don't have anymore. Has anyone found a way around this?

    I will have restored almost all vzw functions to the next build, i basically just got rid of the games and stupid things that no one uses but widgets and syncing functions should all work . then you guys can debloat further if you wish
