    i've gone up and down this site a dozen times.. no where have i found in any alteredbeast zip's the tar file for using odin.. am i going mad?!? i must be.. in no way am i trying to sound neg.. help.. i had altered beast on my original droid and loved it and sooo would love it on my charge.. have yet to get anywhere close to getting cw recovery to work on charge, and have successfully used odin 3 times now.. again, i've looked thru every zip i could download and do not see the file in the screen shots of odin to install the image.. i know i'm missing a link somewhere.. another set of eyes to show me the path.. thanks, you all rock..

    sincerely yours,
    a crazed and blind fan..
    I could not find an ODIN file anywhere either. I even checked the thread over at XDA, but could only find an ODIN file of AB3, which does you no good. Looks like the only way to flash AB right now is through CWM. What problem are you having with getting CWM on the Charge? When you flash the CWM file in ODIN make sure you have the auto reboot box UNCHECKED so the phone does not boot up. This is because since you are most likely still stock, the stock recovery will overwrite the CWM on boot up. When you uncheck the auto reboot box, unplug the USB cord when ODIN finishes, then hold the power, volume up, and home buttons until you see the samsung logo flash for the second time. Let go of all three buttons as soon as you see the samsung logo for the second time and you will boot directly to CWM. From there you can wipe data, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, and flash AB5 then reboot phone.

    Came over from the droidx forums...

    Well ran the root/rom....

    I keep getting a pop up for a system update, but the update is for what is running on the phone. Says I can't make any calls....bla bla bla...

    but If I select update, restarts phone, starts the update and then freezes....gives me the explanation mark and about 15-20%.

    But can still make calls...

    any thoughts?

    Hello,

    I recently wiped and re-flashed my Samsung Charge.
    Prior to the wipe I went into my contacts and performed a "Backup Sync."
    Now, after re-flash, I no longer have that option.

    What Sync ap is this that I used?
    How do I recover my contacts?

    EDIT - After much research, I believe the application was Verizon's "Backup Assistant."
    However, I am unable to download the app, or find it anywhere online.

    Am I correct, and if so, how can I get the app?
    Im unable to get my contacts!

    Most of the custom ROMs remove verizon backup assistant. You can log into your verizon account on your computer, down along the right side of the page you will see backup assistant. Click on that and you will be taken to a page where you will see all your contacts. In the header for the contacts list should be a tab that reads options, click that and choose to export the contacts I believe to email. This should create a CSV file. Log into your gmail account on your computer, click on contacts, and import the CSV file. Your contacts should then sync to your phone.

    A simple, elegant solution that worked.

    not sure if you got it figured out yet or not...

    i used this link from the ab5 thread in xda forums to get root/cmw/voodoo onto my charge.
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    from there going to 5 is easy.

    to boot into cmw is vol up + home + power. will sit at the samsung screen. once the samsung screen pops back up let go of just the pwr button.

    I just went through the steps, worked great. I have a question at this point. My phone wants to do a system update, the build changed from EE4 to ED2 for some reason? Will I be ok to let it go through? I said yes and it rebooted, then got stuck. Exclamation point and Android man on the screen for bout 5 minutes....Do i leave it as is or do the system update?

    I tried to find this info but the thread is too long. Can I flash the abv5 from clockwork without being on a current version of AB? I currently have GC and hate using odin. I just can't seem to find anyone asking this question. thanks.

    I have spent the better part of my morning trying to flash this in odin. if i understand you flash ab4 in odin then cwm up to 4.1 and 5. everytime I flash 4 even if i turn off auto reboot i seem to have lost root and cwm and it goes to the samsung recovery tool and reloads stock. at this point I am completely lost

    Have had the AB ROM on my phone for a while, got the pop-up for the recent system update and didn't even stop to think that this might be a problem - haven't messed with the phone since putting AB on and honestly forgot I was rooted.

    So, partway into the update's install, I get the dreaded triangle exclamation mark of death. Is my phone a brick or do I have a way back out of this?

    <update>
    I can power cycle the phone (just pressing power key until it began to reboot) and I'm in the voodoo lagfix recovery screen. What option do I want at this point? I think the original AB update file is still on the phone, should I apply update from SDcard to try to get back to AB? How do I deal with the update going forward, assuming I can back to the AB version I had before?

    Thanks for any help with this...

    I don't know the correct answer for this but I would probably use Odin to reflash. Or go put Humble 5.0 RC2 like I have on my Charge. I've had it for several weeks now, maybe longer, It runs so well I can't remember when I did.

    You have to return to full stock unrooted to use the OTA update.

    Dear DroidXcon, Yesterday another software update came out for the Samsung Droid Charge and I was wondering if you were or could start working on an update to incorporate the new update with your Altered Beast ROM (I am currently using Alpha 5, it is FANTASTIC, Thank You). I am waiting to update unless you say that you are discontinuing the Altered Beast ROM and then I shall look for something else. Thank You Very Much! code59656
