    I have questions about rom keeper, not wanting to flood the thread, searching for a tutorial or wiki gives me nada. Looks like others need to learn how this works as well.

    Have both downloaded, but clicking install under either does nothing. Does that have to be the installed ROM, or just have the prebeta zip on the SD to manually apply the rdiff?
    Sorry, I haven't created a thread for it yet. I have a bit more work to do before I do that.

    Don't worry too much about this thread, it's just about done. I think beta is going to start next week and then I'll create a new thread and lock this one.

    Anyway, the install is probably being prevented from getting su access. That's fine though, the install function isn't really well tested. I'm not even sure that I'll keep it in the current form. I have been playing with a recovery-free install that runs just before system shutdown, and I don't think that will require su access.

    So for now, just use RomKeeper to download roms and apply deltas, and install as you would any other ROM by booting into recovery manually.

    Just reporting that I was able to update to nightly using RomKeeper, fast and easy installation. Thanks for the hard work, tdm.

    A question, is it ok to set the automatic update option under settings to enable or should we wait til further updates are done to RomKeeper?

    Automatic update is for the manifest. It just allows you to be notified of a new ROM instead of hitting refresh.

    No idea at the moment. I'll need to dig through the code. There are tons of changes between the CM9 sync and integrating thekraven's stuff.

    Too cool! Just got my first nightly update via ROMKeeper, downloaded and verified. Just for fun, I did the Install. That asked for SU access (allowed, of course) and rebooted into recovery and autoloaded the nightly.
    Formatted cache, wiped cache and Dalvik, and installed the update, then rebooted itself.
    Does it all, I am very impressed. Thank you!

    Update: Decided last night to give beta one more shot. Flashed everything on the phone before I went to bed. Magically this morning instead of constant full reboots, it actually started giving me the wait/force close prompt. OC'd a few steps and it slowly improved. Threw the nightly on there and so far everything is scha-weet!

    Side Note - TDM don't know if you remember me saying I was a student and use IDE and a few others for class that had stopped working from 10pre3 and on. That was a main reason why I kept switching back to GB roms because I had to have that. It works now...all of them. I give up trying to figure it out lol.

    It does boot to recovery with a long press on install, after allowing su access via superuser. Then my thunderc recovery, ahem, pops up an exclamation point in a triangle. Home button takes me to the recovery with an error -

    Finding update package...
    /sdcard/quattrimus-LS670-cm9-beta1pre1.zipInfo = NULL
    E:Can't mount /sdcard/quattrimus-LS670-cm9-beta1pre1.zip
    Installation aborted.

    Just FYI, the manual installs are fine. I was thinking the rdiff was applied to the original zip, then it was flashed. Too many years of applying patches.

    Just an FYI, but the mic works in Groove IP to make a VOIP call via Google Voice. Not sure if that helps at all, but the mic itself is working in some scenarios.

    I'm on CWMT Recovery 5.0.2.7-th8.1 because Cannibal fails on the asserts. tdm was going to add them for thunderc the way Drew's values are set, so we will see.

    Hoping if I flash and nand the prebeta, then I can install Cannibal and restore my quattrimus nand to flash the nightlys with that. finners crossed

    Which touch? Cannibal fails on the asserts. CWMT Recovery 5.0.2.7-th8.1 works.

    Well, I've been doing my best to keep up with this thread, and have read post of the pages (Probably the last 100 pages or so), but I'm still just a tad confused. However, I'm really looking forward to having some ICS on my phone! So, let me get this straight. RomKeeper is like GooManager, but for Quattrimus. Now that TDM is doing rdiffs, you are going to need to flash a base ICS ROM, and then flash an rdiff? So I would flash Alpha10, and then use RomKeeper to fetch the Rdiff and flash that on top, wiping cache and dalvik cache before hand?

    So what happens in the future, when there are 50 or so Rdiffs? When one wanted to be on the latest nightly, and were installing from scratch, would they have to install the basic ICS, then every rdiff until current, or just the latest?

    Sorry about all the questions, just trying to wrap my head around this.

    First, you need to make sure you're not downloading the nightly directly. It's a delta file that RomKeeper needs to apply to the beta1pre1 zip in order to produce an updated, working zip.

    When you have the nightly zip properly constructed, Drew's recovery should be able to flash it. I added the appropriate device assert (I think). If it doesn't work, snag a copy of /tmp/recovery.log before you reboot and I'll try to get it figured out.

    So RomKeeper actually DOES apply the delta to the prebeta zip? It was downloaded as a nightly zip, so I flashed the prebeta, then the nightly. Erk.

    I'll flash drews newest recovery again later and test it with the delta flash to confirm. Thank you, great work and great support. Romkeeper is sweet, is an auto bug reporter next?

    I've never used GooManager but from their description yeah it sounds similar.

    No you don't need to actually flash the base. You just need to have it present on your sdcard to use the nightly deltas. You can be running alpha10, beta1pre1, or whatever, doesn't matter. RomKeeper should work under pretty much anything, within reason. Of course, if you're running CAI on a VM670, it's going to look for LS670 ROMs, so don't do that.

    I'm not going to inflict users with deltas on top of previously created deltas. I'll always make the delta against the latest fully released ROM. This way new users can always get the latest nightly with only two steps.
