    Hi all - new to OM-Mandylion and still have some questions (yes I've read through the thread, etc) so if somebody would help me out...

    - i'm a bit confused on what Mandylion uses for the ext partition - does it use data2ext? and then do I still need to restore my apps or will it automatically find them on my ext partition? i used data2ext for a long time until about 6 months or so ago when i just found it easier (?) to use link2sd in a way. though now that i think about it was it faster? well, yes it was, when updating my rom from a previous build...

    anyway, somebody let me know, when you've the chance. i'm gonna switch up anyway i think when the new build comes out tomorrow just to check it out, and thanks ahead of time.

    --- thanks to all DEVs, and everybody else whom helps out this stuff.
    I use amarullz ad2sdx script which auto mounts the sd-ext partition on first boot, so there is no need to use terminal or adb to active the script. The sd-ext partition must be either ext3/ext4 other wise the phone well not boot.

    If coming from another ROM then backup your apps and there data using MyBackup Root that you can download from the Play Store. Then uninstall it as OM-Mandylion comes with the app per-installed. You well need to do a full wipe, I also recommend using CWM-Blue-Recovery as I built it for the needs of the ROM.
    If coming for another rom factory/data-reset in recovery is all you need to do, the wipping of the boot and system is do during install, it's because of this that the install well take about a minute longer then normal.

    Do you build from blaf IHO repo? if so use the source.

    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/Earthnfire78/android_packages_apps_DSPManager.git
    You can either marge or remove the DSPManager you already have and clone into the Packages_apps

    I am loving your ROM!
    : you should include in your installation instructions that ext 3 works also, I was hesitant to install this because it only said ext 4

    I am loving your ROM! Is there any way for us to change the color of the blue wifi/3g/battery in the status bar?

    Edit: you should include in your installation instructions that ext 3 works also, I was hesitant to install this because it only said ext 4
    Updated the installation instructions about a week ago pertaining to ext3, the only reason it took so long is I forgot that I modified the scripted used. lol
    Well have a downloadable zip that can be flashed v.i.a. recovery so people can choose themes.

    I like most devs build for myself, and I'm not much into theming using a bunch of apps, so the extra stuff is released as a mod zip.

    Thanks for the update. I am curious as to why your instructions are to mount system as writable and then mount it as read only...

    @ SuppliedRelic Try moving the recovery.img to either the default download folder or the root of the sdcard and try again. Sometimes that error happens if the path to the file is to long, or if the file download was a bad. Try downloading it again.

    @ mkoyskip Your question told me that I needed to clarify what that was about, so that is what I did. lol

    Ahh, ok - just in case somebody needs to write to system for whatever reason. Thanks.

    I tried what you suggested but that didn't work. It says out of memory which makes me think it isn't erasing the old recovery.

    Try downloading with the default web browser, or download using your computer and push it to your sdcard v.i.a. adb.

    I think Dolphin_Mini maybe corrupting it, or if you are renaming it try not doing so and see if that works.

    I tried downloading with stock browser but it still says error out of memory. I would like to point out that using Flash Image GUI works for flashing a recovery. Could it be that backside updater doesn't have the proper permissions to overwrite the existing recovery?

    Flash_Image GUI has it's own flash_image binary, BacksideUpdater uses the flash_image binary that comes with the ROM. I tried with using the flash_image command and BacksideUpdater with no problems.

    I realized I had forgotten to mount the system as writable. I mounted it as writable then rebooted the phone and it installed fine.

    Still think the file was corrupted, but that may have been caused be me. You may have been downloading the recovery.img right at the time I was taking down the older images. I had to go back and fix the links last night because they were the wrong ones.

    Just flashed this rom and must say nice job. I get a tired and annoyed having to re-reset up my a2sd every time an update is available. I think I'll be on this one for a while. Thanks!

    And thank you for the feed back.

    With Launcher2 you either like it hate, the org.zeam was good but as it turned out the memory footprint was just to small, causing it to have screen wake issues. Plus the Launcher has not updated it for a while by the developer, and a few devs have asked for the source code so that development can continue but have not heard back.

    If BacksideUpdater gives you a "Already Update to Date" just ignore, I changed up the incremental date.
