    Okay, stupid question as I apparently failed to do the CWM recovery install after rooting in Gingerbread, is there anyway to install it while on ICS? I don't know why I missed it as I remember doing Recovery Backups on my HTC EVO Shift, but for some reason today looking at the new FE10 (I'm on FE07) did the bell ding I was missing it. Wish it did before I installed FE07.

    The recovery and kernel on the Epic 4g Touch are on the same partition so if you flash one you flash the other and they have to be packaged together. There are no reliable ICS kernels with clockworkmod recoveries. This is a known source of causing bricks on about 8 different samsung phones using ICS kernels. You do not want clockworkmod on ICS right now, at least until the bug is figured out. Until then there is an unsecure stock recovery that allows you to flash things but you can not make back ups.

    Rogue Recovery allows you to backup and restore.

    But doing so while in an AOSP ROM like CM9 is asking for a brick, for now anyways. Apparently, Samsung has been working with Google on this kernel issue and have developed a workaround.

    Someone, the names slipping my mind right now :banghead: , developed an AOSP kernel from source that he's still testing that should be free from any bricking and whatnot. I think it was tc something, I'll look and come back, haha.

    It's T.C.P. who's working on the kernel. However, all of this will hopefully be behind us not too long after we get the ICS kernel source from Samsung.
