    Not that safe from internal SD. Many have reported brickings as a result of flashing from internal storage. ALWAYS use External SD.

    all the bricks reported were caused by faulty kernels from chris41g. trust me its safe.

    Well that's what you get for using a kernel that is developed by someone who doesn't even own the device they develop for.

    Are there any fixes I should be looking for? Such as wakelock, deepsleep, etc?

    Hey now. chris is an amazing developer. unfortunately a mistake was made on the kernel he made. thats the risk we rooters take. nothing is ever 100%.

    Hey, just being honest. Even XDA mods agree with me that people should steer clear of that.

    It's like a Windows dev, developing for Apple...

    why dont you try flashing from clockworkmod recovery. are you even on JB? Signature failed is a stock locked recovery thing.

    not getting a deep sleep, most likely due to extreme amount of los. I get it about 2-3 minutes after reboot. temps are better. havent seen it go past 100 degrees. no wakelock yet though so good progress there

    ok so the wake locks are better at least. LOS is a tough nut to crack. Ill continue my hacking

    Flashed your kernel with modem FG20, and haven't experienced LOS yet, nor wake-ups yet. I'll report back with results at 1:00PM EDT.

    Report back as soon as I flash it... on break its downloading now.
    Flashed fine. No Los noticed or wake lock.

    Okay ... let's try to use some facts when we make statements or claims. Your personal opinion is fine, but there's no reason take a dig at a developer who's been doing work on our phone since release.

    chris doesn't need the phone to create kernels for our device. Your analogy doesn't hold water, as he's developing Android for an Android phone. The only downside is that he can't personally test his work right away ... much like DK2 couldn't while he was pumping out updates to this ROM while he was waiting for his replacement to come. Did that make DK2 also incapable of developing? No, obviously not.

    Also, the fact that he doesn't own a E4GT had nothing to do with the the emmc brick vulnerability in his previous kernels. There was a patch mismerge in the source code that inadvertently removed one of the layers of brick security. When not there, this layer makes the phone vulnerable to a EMMC brick when flashing a ROM who's update binary was not also patched for safety in the ext4 utils. It's rare but it CAN happen.

    So let's get some stuff clear hear so we can move forward on development and not make silly claims ...

    1) You can wipe data and flash anything from either internal or external storage
    2) Flashing from one of chris41g's latest kernels (R10-CWM6 or RC11-TWRP) is perfectly safe
    3) When in doubt, best practice is still to do your wiping and flashing from a GB based kernel/recovery until we have a JB kernel/recovery that is guaranteed to be patched for EMMC lockup safety.

    Ok, I'm still getting the deepfreeze when connecting to computer. Maybe, I have some bad drivers, which is causing the DF on the phone?
