    Ok i am about to do this, just a couple of questions.

    1. should i move the .apks files to my phone before i root? or dose it not matter
    2. can i even put root explorer on the phone before i root?
    3. is there anything else i should download before i do this (apps)?

    I know, nubish questions (this is my first android phone) but i want to make sure i do this right.

    are you refering to the files in the OP...no do those afterwards this is not a root method, it has root built in. This is basically overwriting the operating system so anything that you have in the /system files will be over written.

    2. can i even put root explorer on the phone before i root?
    before or after doesnt matter since root explorer goes into your /data/app file and this is not over written


    3. is there anything else i should download before i do this (apps)?
    • follow directions carefully,
    • make sure the drivers are installed,
    • use the USB ports in the back of the computer.
    • Boot up will take 5-7 mins so dont panic
    • Never Panic!
    • it will boot into clockwork just press the power button to reboot

    After flashing the ROM the Market appears to start downloading an app then it just blips away and is not installed.

    Known Bug?

    Standard email (not just Gmail) seems to be missing as well. Maybe I'm just missing a few marbles??

    Thanks for the hard work BTW!!

    i removed those as bloat, if you want them ill add them to the OP .

    as far as the market goes i dont have that problem at all, are you using wifi?

    try this
    settings>applications>manage applications>market> wipe data / cache
    then open and close the market a couple times and let me know if it helps

    try placing the above in your /system/app folder using root explorer(or somthing similar) and rebooting your phone
    no dice... placed it in the app folder, rebooted... nothing.

    Allowed non-market apps, installed the apk through root explorer... nothing.

    Tried to restart phone after to see if that would sync... nothing.

    I like the ROM so far, but calendar is an essential function i need. Barely had a chance to explore the rest of the features yet.

    I'm really hoping this can help sell me on the phone cause i'm thinking about taking it back... battery/cpu/gpu/ram are all negatives... Would have love to have gotten a low voltage OC kernel before my 14 days are up (this saturday...) Meanwhile I'm happy to test away

    oh also go to the original post of this thread and grab the CalendarProvider.apk see if that gets your calendar syncing again

    Dropped it into sys/app and tried to install it and it wouldn't go. Reinstalled the google calendar sync and tried again... Did a restart in between each attempt too and still can't get it working...

    I just downloaded the apk and did a install straight from that. It worked great. Although I do have a third party calender installed. Plus with Launcher Pro Plus the widget works as well.

    yeah thanks for pointing out the elephant ,,,i was hoping i could slide on that mistake till i got the next build up....guess not lol

    i dont know what you mean by that, Odin is a tool that flashes firmware , if are talking internal storage after you install the rom, 1.15gigs i have no idea how someone fills that much with apps, it boggles my mind.

    Awesome rom. I just flashed it without any hiccups. It is definitely a lot smoother than stock.

    Registered here specifically to say "THANK YOU"!!!

    The hard work y'all do is simply amazing! Brings me back to my "Blue Box" days....

    I'm having the same problem as others regarding the Calendar app...it's something I do use, and I'd like to be able to have that one back.

    I've done the /system/app thing, and rebooted several times, also done a factory wipe and reinstalled my google acct, and still no calendar.

    I'll try a direct install - any other help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again!

    Can you explain exactly how you got the calendar working?

    I can't get it working for the life of me.

    Thanks!
