    I'm so pissed. Not because it's not working.. but because I feel like I'm the dumbest person on this forum.

    On my car forums I'm the one that helps everyone. This is my first droid phone and can't figure it out.

    I install Odin, it goes through installed Altered Beast etc. I get the reboot and hit reboot.

    Then it locks up on the Red Droid Screen. I let it sit there for a solid 30 minutes. Finally I held in the power button and restarted it.

    It boots up and looks fine. Goes to the locked screen. I slide and unlock it then the whole screen is blank except the clock at the time. I can drag the top bar down and see the connection/update option but I can't get anything else to pop up.

    I'm on build ED1 maybe that is my problem? Do I have to install ALL the apk files that are in the first post or can I just do them later? If this works, I'm definitely a donator!!! I've helped to donate time, money, parts for our car forums and hope to one day be a contributor on here as well.

    When you put your battery back in your phone after flashing, and you get the the red clockwork recovery screen have you tried clearing(wiping) your cache before rebooting? It should not matter what build your are on ED1 or ED2.. I did my first flash from ED1 with no probs. Try clearing your cache before you reboot.

    So when it goes to the red/black voodoo text.. hit "clear cache"?

    The first time I just hit "restart" Then after posting here I tried to rerun Odin etc and selected Factory Reset and it worked.

    I didn't do that. I did hit the "factory reset option" and that did the trick as well.

    I'm wondering if since i didn't clear the cache maybe it's going to be buggier than normal?

    Thanks again!

    Hello everyone, I have a question. First, though, I want to thank DroidXcon for all the hard work. I'm loving it and as soon as I can I plan to donate! Also big thanks to everyone along the way offering tips to people like me who are rather new to this!

    On that note, here is my question. Last night I downloaded the clock apk and wasn't able to move it to my /system/app folder (using root explorer) because it said, "file system is read-only". Well this morning I updated to the newest version with the clock, so that took care of that, and downloaded the netflix apk from xda with hopes that it'll work on my Charge now that it's rooted but again I can't move it to the app folder because I'm getting the same read-only message. Did I miss a step when using Odin? Seems I don't quite have root access, but I'm jumping to my own conclusion. I'm learning as I go, if anyone happens to have any info I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    before pasting the apk into your system/app folder you have to click the mount r/w button at the top of root explorer when you're in the folder you are trying to paste into.

    r/o - read only
    r/w - read/write

    Thank you very much.

    Edit: Was able to get Netflix to launch, but get booted out when trying to log in, was worth a try hehe. If anyone cares to take a stab at it here's the link to the apk from xda. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1076150

    Worked for me! You're my hero =P

    Theming looks awesome btw. Love the signal strength and battery indicators.

    If someone could figure out how to disable VVM but still let me long press 1 to dial VM I'd be 100% happy (Until then I'm 99.9% satisfied =)

    Either way I'm buying you a beer!

    DroidXcon, you're awesome! This rom looks amazing! I'll be getting my Charge in a week and I can't wait to load this on it, first thing! I was wondering if the hidden menus will still work with this rom? I have to be able to disable that lock screen, I can't stand it.
    This rom definitely has some much needed improvements over stock - mainly the color - the brown and orange color scheme is probably the ugliest I've seen on any phone yet! I can not understand what possessed Samsung to settle on that color scheme, but maybe that's just the girly in me talking :-) Any chance that there will be a pink rom or theme developed for this phone?? I waited and waited for one for the Fascinate and it never happened :-( I would DEFINITELY be willing to pay even more dough to see my Charge rockin some pink!

    Glad to be back! Had to take a break from my favorite hobby for a little while, then made the HUGE mistake of using my upgrade to get a TBolt ....needless to say, I went back to my beloved Fascinate and in a week my brother is going to let me use his upgrade to get the Charge. A pink theme to flash over this rom - say it ain't so! I'm so excited!!!!!!!

    Yes, I don't want a lock screen at all, I want to be able to push any button on the phone and have it wake up to no lock screen - I can't stand having to unlock my phone every time I want to use it.
    I already tested the hidden menus on the Charge and was able to successfully disable the lock screen (menu option "Shutdown") and the full battery pop up (although I haven't had a chance to see if the full battery pop up was actually successfully disabled or not), so was just wondering if anything was altered in this rom by way of the hidden menus that would cause them not to work after I flash it.

    Thanks DroidX, you rock as always! Installed A1 then A2 and now on A3, each one gets better and better, great work. The only thing I notice not working on mine but I will live with it until it happens to get fixed or just live with it. I have not been able to voice dial from my jawbone bluetooth. On the Fascinate I had to load the EvilNuance apk to get it to work but I didn't even see Nuance on stock so I don't think the Charge comes with Nuance at all. Any ideas, and if the answer is to live with it, that is cool, everything else is great.

    there was a change to thepolicy.jar file for the AOSP lock but not sure if that will effect it, where did you get instructions on hidden menus?

    Go to Dialer and enter *#83786633, then press the home key
    Go back into the Dialer, clear those numbers, then *#22745927
    Now a screen will appear asking for the SPC Code, enter 000000
    Press the Hiddenmenu Enable radio button, then press home button

    To disable the lock screen (and power down pop up), go back into the Dialer and use the code *#7594#, select Shutdown and press the Home button. This, I have confirmed, does work on the Charge.

    There is also the option to disable the full battery pop up, but I'm not sure if it actually works or not (I'll be able to find out later tonight). *#3844228#. It allows you to disable it, but the option never actually worked on my Fascinate, so I don't know if it will work on the Charge.

    I just tested this on my Charge with Alpha 3 and it did in fact remove the lock screen. It would take a while to charge my battery full. Will test in the morning if no one else has.
