    I want to flash this, but is there a way to go back to 2.1 in case there are too may bugs for me? I'm really tired of waiting for official froyo and know it won't be here until 2011, but I need something that's isn't too bug crazy. 2.1 is ok for me out of the box, just want the froyo features and more importantly......better touchwiz interface. Thanks to everyone who has been working on these ROMS...all the hard work is greatly appreciated.

    Going back to 2.1 is as easy as going to 2.2 - just flash the Eclair ROM/kernel.

    I have the DI18 on my sdcard, so will the rewrite the kernel as well. Or do I hve to use an executable to overwrite the kernel back to 2.1?

    This version of Froyo comes prepackaged with Clockwork, so you can use that.

    I can't get my computer to recognize my phone. It's the Gadget Serial Issue. I've tried installing PC Studio, and running it on Windows XP. Any other ideas? Should I just go with the other ROM, even though it's harder to install?

    You mean you can't get Odin to recognize it? Try a different USB port and/or USB cord.

    oh....i don't have odin installed. i thought i didn't have to have Odin. I'll go get Odin and try again. The instructions never mentioned Odin so I assumed this was the "Odin-free" version.

    Were you looking at the instructions on XDA? Makes sure to read them carefully beforehand:

    Step 1. Boot your phone into download by powering off your phone holding 1 on the keyboard and holding power til you see the little Yellow digger. Step 2. On your computer launch the included odin.exe and select the included victory pit and under PDA select the included SPH-D700-DK17-Extended.tar Step 3. Plug in the usb cable.(if it's done right you should see a yellow Com device.) Step 4. Click Start and wait.

    ok i think i bricked my phone. i finally got the drivers installed (the galaxy s drivers) and the phone is now displaying a phone with a yellow triangle (with an exclamation point in the middle) and a computer. is this a partial brick or complete brick?

    Try to turn it off (if you have to, pull the battery). Then (with the battery in) hold the "1" key and power until you see the android digging picture. Then follow the procedure form there.

    Sounds like you're in business - should be smooth sailing from here.

    Liking the ROM so far....

    The only problems I can note are that it is really laggy for some reason and also GPS still doesn't work for me (indoors.....it always works and gets a quick lock outdoors). I've had 3 epics, and my second one could get a lock here in my apartment without Wi-fi, but on this one (both this ROM and stock 2.1) I can't get a lock in here for anything.

    Is the the actual leak from sprint that is untouched, or is this custom? The reason I ask is because when I look up the name of the ROM under settings it is "kodane"

    The only things that aren't stock on this ROM are Clockwork and the fact that it's rooted. If you want more speed, try a custom Froyo ROM. Now that you have the stock Froyo w/modem on your phone, you can directly flash any of the latest Froyo custom ROMs from Clockwork. I'm loving Quantum myself, very snappy. If you're a fan of Epic Experience I believe schizopunk is almost ready to release a Froyo ROM.

    Thanks....i'll go try the Quantum ROM. Wasn't there a lag fix thing somewhere though? I remember reading about it, but I forgot where. What was that for?

    The lag fix was kind of a joke by the maker of Quantum - he said himself that it does nothing for the phone's performance, it just gives you a 2200+ Quadrant score. He was making a point that Quadrant scores are worthless.

    I've loaded Quantum and love it more than the other DK17 ROM. However, GPS still doesn't work for me and the browser is a little slower because of Flash (I'm assuming). Also, is the DRM still an issue in these ROMS because the battery is draining a little quick. Gonna try it for the remainder of the day and see if I can keep it or go back stock.
