    I always do the last option twice, for a new install

    Do you mean reboot twice, i 've read you need to reboot twice before overclocking.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for quick reply, i think i'll do it like you said rom reboot, then gapps and reboot

    I just wasn't sure if the 4 wipe options were enough for a clean flash coming from another rom.
    Thanks!

    I'll probably flash tomorrow night, we're getting snow tonight and i drive a plow truck, i'm going to have to work through the night.
    I always wipe system, data, cache, and dalvik cache. Works fine for me

    I always reboot at least once or more to help tighten up the ROM before overclocking.
    If you have the ZenGarden recovery, then selecting every wipe option once will definitely Get-R-Done.
    It can't hurt.
    It's what I do, but I'm sort of OCD.

    Note: I've had some glitches with the "New Talk" version of the 20110828 Gapps. I use the older 20110828 Galls + a saved latest version of the vending apk (PlayStore), that was saved with Root Uninstaller. After setting up all my apps I go back and install it to help update it quicker so the FCs with the old vending apk doesn't drive me nuts.

    No I wipe twice just to make sure, and to over clock I don't think you need to reboot

    Some of it really isn't necessary. Those four should be fine.

    Thanks Andy i'll let you know, don't really think i'll need it cause i only have about 35 apps.

    I'll see how much internal space i have left when done.

    THANKS

    If you have an 8GB SD card or above with at least 1.5 GB of extra space you don't think you'll ever need for anything and move any apps to the SD card, then Link2SD is the way to gp. It will allow the apps that you need to put on the SD card to open just as quick as the ones on the internal storage.
    With the ZenGarden recovery you can do all partitioning and reformatting without ever having to take card out of phone. You would just need to transfer all data on sd card to computer during the partitioning part, then transfer back when done. It easy, fast, and fool proof.

    If you don't have a need for it. Don't worry about it. Just posted info for possible future use if and when needed.

    Thanks for the info Andy, but still using the stock 2gb sdcard and as you know, still no computer. My buddy said he would transfer the data if i got a bigger card. But since i have such few apps ( been taking my time restoring them) i have almost all restored and still have 152 mb left.

    I would actually like to uninstall gallery, live wallpapers, email, and a few others that are not needed, but some are system apps and i know you can't delete system apps with titanium backup, although when i installed backside rom, i deleted email gallery, live wallpapers, some were system apps but i don't remember how i did it was so long ago. I think i converted them into user apps but i can't remember. I don't want to screw anything up at this point!

    Also, just one more thing, when i checked to see what was using the battery cell standby said 12116days5hrs and time without signal was 99% what's that all about!

    Other than that what a great rom ...Thanks Mrg666 for all your hard work!

    Use a file manager like Root Explorer, they're located in the /system/apps folder.

    You can also delete the apks you don't want before flashing the zip file. Just open the ROM zip file in 7zip delete the apks and close the zip file. Don't expand and rezip.

    I have uploaded a kernel update in the OP. There are some cryptography library updates that I have backported from my HTC EVO 3D kernel (crc32, aes, sha1). I think they can improve the networking performance. You can find the download link in the OP and check my github for the details of the updates.

    I have downloaded the new kernel and tried to flash it, but I get:
    E:Wrong digest:
    system/lib/modules/wireless.ko
    E: Verification failed

    So I re-downloaded the new kernel and copied it to the phone again with the same result. Is this an error that can be safely ignored so I should turn off verification like I sometimes need to do when burning new roms?

    Thanks!

    You don't need a computer. Try "Root Browser Lite" which is free or Root Explorer which cost a little green.
    With them you should be able to extract zip file, delete apk from /system/app of ROM, and then Zip back up. You can do the same thing with the Gapps, just be really carefully what you delete.
    LeslieAnn posted a guide here to what was safe to delete, I linked to it in the ATR guide at AF.

    Then "Zip Signer" to sign.

    The only thing I can't do with my phone is extract, decompile, re-compile,and sign apks and jar files.

    With AFV (Android File Verifier) I can even generate an md5 sum.

    When I helped with the LeWa ROM all work including editing the build.prop was done with the phone (with the exception of editing the framework.jar which Gannon actually did).

    Note: Link2SD is the best app for deleting system apps or adding an app to the system. If you get an error message, just reboot and you will find the app has been deleted.
    Just choose not to create mount scripts when you first open Link2SD up.

    With all recovery's you can create the partition which formats them to ext.3. With the ZenGarden recovery you can reformat that same partition to ext.4. You never have to take SD card out of phone.

    I'll check to see what you'll need to backup data that's on SD card and transfer back when done with partitioning SD card.

    You will be amazed at how much you can now do without a computer.

    I thought your not suppose to unzip rom, gapps, etc etc. Because it breaks things and causes bugs?
    If yeah then just flash the rom gapps etc etc then get a file manager with root privileges then navigate to system/app delete what you want then reboot.

    I'll forgive ya this time ...don't worry i know the feeling!

    I have file expert pro root, i've tried several times to delete gallery, it says operation successful, but after reboot it's still there.

    Maybe because i have titanium backup, but i don't have it (gallery) backed up?


    Sorry guys, one last question and i promise i won't bug you anymore.

    What options in zengarden do i need to flash the new kernel update?

    THANKS GUYS
