    How? I've had it on mine for awhile now and haven't noticed any problems except having a problem navigating in recovery mode. Would this be why? Please see my other thread http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...5-0-2-7-a.html

    Thanks!

    Yeah, no problems except that recovery doesn't work.

    On new phones it flashes a recovery that DOES NOT WORK with those phones. Then we get 5 new threads a day asking why their phone went blank.

    On top of that, none of our roms are listed there (the ones listed are old and were not put there by the creators), and it's risky to flash a rom from such a utility even on phones that do support it.

    If you value your phone, dump that damn program.

    Actually, doing i in recovery is MUCH safer.

    If it's a bad image it simply will not install, usually. This is true for either method, however you will get a notice in terminal. As for typos, it will either work, or it will not. If you misspell anything, it will simply error out and not flash anything.

    So far dead heat right?
    Flashgui works... For now. What happens on the next update? The terminal method is foolproof, it ALWAYS works, unless there is something wrong, and then it simply will not. There is no risk, no fear of someone else changing something.


    You guys sometimes may think doing some of this the old way is silly, but my phone is older, been flashed more and done things you haven't even dreamed of, yet still runs fine, and it is because of doing this stuff the right way as opposed to the easy way is why.
