    dtm,

    Well I finally managed to get it done.

    I had an issue at first where it did not see the phone after I launched ODIN. It seemed like it was working.

    I re-read the docs on the website, and I re-launched the app in Administrator mode and also unplugged the phone and replugged the USB cable back in and that did the trick.

    I can't believe how easy it was in the long run, as it did seem a bit like running a WebOS factory reinstall.

    I still have a ton of questions to get real comfortable with all of this but that can wait.

    Right now I do have one question.

    My phone seems to be running slow to respond to my touches on the screen..

    I did check and I am on EL29, so I know the upgrade went OK. I tested making a phone call so that works.

    But everything seems to be a little quirky and running slow.

    Any thoughts?

    Rob

    PS Maybe a second reboot might help, it just might be fixing itself for all the changes.

    Just a couple of questions,

    Are you running stock + root or a custom rom?

    Did you install clockworkmod?

    If you are stock+ root + clockworkmod then go ahead and wipe cache and dalvik cache. That might speed things up. The first reboot will take longer after a wipe.

    If you are stock + root but no clockworkmod, I would start checking out if there were apps unnecessarily running in the background plus a restart.

    If you installed a custom rom or kernel then you might just need to tweak it a little.


    Oh and congratulations on making it through the process!

    I'm going to need your help here.

    When I reboot with power + volume up, I am not getting that clockwork stuff.

    I installed the stock nodata, which you said would get me stock + superuser.

    That's what I got.

    I ran system tuner products and it said it had superuser.

    I ran another app that needed root and it complained that it did not have root access.

    Also, since I had install the beta swype keyboard, swype no longer works, so I need to root to get that installed again.

    I have run all day and the only problem other than swype is this horrible slow down and lack of response to the touchscreen. It takes the touch, but it very slow to respond to the touch.

    I did wipe the cache when I had it in developer mode (power + volume up) that was the 3rd choice of only 3. The 3 were reboot, factory install, wipe cache. I believe that was all the choices.

    No clockwork.

    I need to try this dalvic cache, not sure how to do that. Hopefully I will figure it out without needing your help.

    I was just thinking since I did have at least one app that required root (Swype) maybe I have a few others that I'm not realizing and that is what is causing the slow down.

    Maybe I should get it rooted again and put back the clockwork thing.

    Let's face it, I would love not to have do a full factory restore, ugh!

    So with your help, if I can find out what is going on, than maybe I can fix this problem and be ok.

    I read the other E29 threads and people are complaining so much, that a few are getting their phones replaced!

    Wow is E29 that bad? Maybe I should go back to E02 and be happy with that. Heck, I can't wait for Ice Cream Sandwich (I did say it correctly for 4.0?). My friend has a Nexus (the new one) and it's nice.

    To make things worse today, I washed my pants and while the wash was going I was hearing a banging noise. It turned out to be my 2 spare batteries that I had that small pocket in that you have in dungarees. So now I have 2 batteries that have that white paper is now purple.

    I had washed one of the batteries once before and it worked in the end, but I had purchased a new spare battery to be safe.

    So now bother got washed this time!

    Letting them dry out for a day or two then I will attempt to recharge.

    Thanks again!

    Wow, I just did the wipe of both caches again. System Tuner Pro had an option to wipe both caches.

    Since I had wiped the regular cache first, and now this dalvik cache, it must have been the dalvik cache causing the issue.

    The phone is working great now, at least that's what it looks like from just a minute of usage.

    Thanks.. what the heck is the dalvik cache. I'm going to read those Android Central help items. I get them everyday in my Newsroom app for the Android Central RSS feed. I think they explained what dalvik cache is.

    Ok, now I think I will still get the phone rooted again. And put back the clockwork. Is that a good idea?

    Do you think I can use that ROM Toolbox app that I have or is it Rom Manger app. I have both. Would they be easier?

    Alright, let me see if I can this all cleared up.

    First please remove rom manager as it doesn't properly work with our phones despite what the app may say.

    -I don't use rom toolbox so I am not hugely familiar with it, the only app I use really to manage backups in Mybackup Pro. I have also not heard a lot about Epic 4g Touch users, using that app so I would be careful using it. Same thing goes for System Tuner Pro be careful using it.

    -No need to install clockworkmod unless you want to install a custom rom/kernel/ or theme; which maybe the case later but I don't think you need it. The reason you only had 3 options before was because you were in the stock recovery.

    -If you are still lagging or having unresponsiveness, why not just re-odin the package again? It preserves your data so it doesn't hurt anything. If swype is still giving you problems try going into settings>applications>manage applications>swype then clearing data and cache. If that doesn't work uninstall again and try reinstalling the beta.

    - As for dalvik cache, I think the AC article can explain it much better than I can. I just know it is a feature of android that makes it unique to linux based operating systems.

    - Sorry to hear about your batteries.

    - I don't think EL29 is that bad, fixed the GPS for me. Plus I run a custom rom/kernel/theme so most of the issues stock user see are fixed by the developers of the custom roms.

    So far the cleaning up if the both caches fixed the issues.

    I'm trying to see if anyone posted a list of all the changes.

    So far I'm OK, I.guess I don't care about wallpapers.

    I do want to modify my notification bar.

    I like having colored icons for the battery and signals.

    I miss having 'patches' like we had with WebOS. I wanted a different battery icon I just ran a 'patch'.

    I'm still not sure what a system mod does to your phone.

    I'm happy with Touchwiz. I have purchased a few of the launchers but they always seem to slow down the system.

    NOTE: Please read this message and the 2 other messages I posted after this one before replying to my questions. I have found an answer to the root problem.

    I think I'm stuck again.

    I ran an app that need the system to be rooted.

    I thought that the version of upgrade I used was the EL29 rooted and su?

    Here is the file name I used: SPH-D710.EL29_CL852097_ROOTED_NODATA-OneClick.exe

    From what I read, this is stock rom with root (I guess superuser as well, but I do have superuser so I'm ok with that, just not the root part). And it also kept my data. And it did that perfectly.

    You helped me fix the slow problem, which I did by clearing all the caches.

    So now I am wondering why I can access root with an app?

    Is there anyway to tell if I am really not rooted. And if I used the rooted version how come it never rooted?

    I know you said if all fails, I should try and perform the operation again. But I won't do that until we (you) really think I should.

    Another thing, when looking around for an answer, I discovered that over at xda, they now have an EL30 (and possibly an EL31), do you know what that is all about. Maybe since I'm in the process of doing all this work, I should just go and try that?

    As far as your question: which system mods, I was making a general statement to gain knowledge of what Android system mods are all about. If you are familiar with WebOS, you know that we never had a different ROM, we always adjusted or modified the stock ROM. If you got into trouble, you just re-wrote the whole device and you were back to normal stock.

    Oh, yes, there is one area where we would have a different ROM, that would be the overclocking. That is the only thing that was changed from the stock rom, it would just be a modified ROM that handled the overclocking. I personally took my 500mhz Palm Pre and ran it at 1 mhz. And yes it really worked and made the phone fast. And no, it did not burn up the phone. But I was a heavy into patching the phone.

    So when talking about how Android works, I am always trying to compare things to WebOS as a base. That is why I don't understand what system mods do. Such as Clockwork, Cynmode (whatever the spelling is for that, but you know what I am talking about). I don't know what they bring to the table. If they just give me a different launcher, I don't need or want them. I hear people talking about how they like this mod or that mod. It hard for me to picture (remember I am comparing to WebOS and how that worked for a reference) what the differences are that they are getting.

    From my point of view, I want to play around with the stock rom and adjust it to how I like. Then if I don't like what I did, I would restore it back to the factory rom, just like I did in WebOS.

    Or am I misunderstanding all of this? And maybe you don't play around with the system mod (whoops, yes, I see which system mod) I should have said the stock mod, in this paragraph.

    Back to the root question? What can I try to fix that.

    Also, in a previous message I you that when I do boot into (for lack of better words) developer mod. I don't have things like 'backup' system rom or restore system rom. What that because that was due to having Clockwork installed? I did like having some of those features on there.

    Oh one more thing before this becomes a book.

    I found an app called: Super Status Bar. I think that will provide me with what I wanted to modify without having to play around in superuser or root.

    I am find an app (haven't figured out which one) that is placing advertisements in my notification bar area and if I accidentally click on it, its taking me to a web page via a my Dolphin Browser (my default browser) for an ad that I won an iPad. So it's crap or some sort.

    The icon looks like a red star surrounded by a white circle. Have you even seen that?

    As I said, I'm look for which app is causing that and want to remove it. It could have been this new Super Status Bar, I have not yet purchase the 'premium version'. I deleted it for now and not sure if the ads are now gone or not, haven't used the phone that much yet after that deletion.

    OK, I'm going on way too much.

    Thanks for you help as always!

    I have both Titanium Backup Pro and have My Backup Pro (the paid premium versions).

    Along with that I have Titanium Root plus Titanium Media Sync (don't really need that) and My Backup Pro Root.

    From what I see, Titanium Back Pro has a ton more features. What I like is they have these 'scripts' to perform tasks that most of us would want.

    SO you have established that you have root, so no need to worry about that.

    The stuff you were reading about was not for the Epic 4g Touch it was for the Epic 4g, which is a completely different forum. Here is a link to the proper forum: Samsung Epic 4G Touch - xda-developers

    Sfhub has posted methods on how to get back to stock which involve similar methods to what you used to get to EL29.

    Clockworkmod is a custom recovery used to replace the stock recovery. When you reboot and hold Vol up + power you will reboot into your recovery. When in your recovery it will be apparent which recovery you have because the clockworkmod says it and has many more options.

    As for the apps just be careful and read the reviews, there is no filter or review process for android apps.

    Oh and after all of that. I accidentally went into the Superuser app and saw that the app in question was being 'denied'. I removed it from being denied and it worked. So I do have root after all.

    Freezing an apps removes the ability for that app to start up, therefor it won't be a battery/resource hog. This is particularly useful if you are stock and want to maintain stock but want to free up your ram and battery. This still maintains your flexibility to apply an over the air update of the android firmware once you have unfrozen the app.

    So clockwork is not really a custom system ROM, it's just a full feature boot recovery mechanism.

    As I said, I liked it back it had the backup/restore function.

    So clockwork can work with the stock ROM which is what I have now.

    That would be all I want.

    Great, thanks, I can find out how to do that on my own I think.

    I want to stop bothering you.

    Also, that AD keeps popping up.

    I did describe it backwards.

    A a red dot with a white star wrapped around the red dot shows up in the status bar. A link to the AD is in the notification drop down.

    Could the EL29 ROM now look for ads?

    I'm determine to get rid of these ads.

    I did describe it backwards.

    A a red dot with a white star wrapped around the red dot shows up in the status bar. A link to the AD is in the notification drop down.

    Could the EL29 ROM now look for ads?

    I'm determine to get rid of these ads.

    Honestly, I have no idea what app that could be. Have you tried installing the ad blocker from the market?

    I think I found it. I think it was Google. I just reset the options.

    But I did something bad!

    I gotta stop playing around, I keep making things screwed up.

    Somehow, I messed up the Market app data.

    Now when I go into the market app, and do show my apps, I get nothing but a screen that says 'your apps will show here with two buttons. One to got to apps and the other to goto music.

    No apps are showing.

    I tried several things that were mentioned in the forums but nothing is working so far.

    Any ideas to try?

    I did go to titanium and use their market doctor (that's what messed it up to begin with). That did not help. I tried to clear the caches again.

    I deleted the market app, I restored it from my backup. No good.

    My suggestion would be to google search "android market apk 3.4.4" download the .apk and put it on your sdcard then install it.

    I am really confused as to why you would think it would be google? As far as I know they dont have adds in your notification bar.

    If all else fails, just reflash Sfhub's odin package. Once the phone is back up and running I would install clockworkmod recovery and make a 100% complete back up. This way if anything gets messed up you will have a nice and clean fresh start and you won't need odin.

    Ok, got the market stuff back finally

    I redid one of the solutions. I had not done it correctly.

    Yeah, I need to have a good backup for all my stupid mistakes.

    I actual made a few when I did have clockwork on before the upgrade. I still have those backups on the card.

    Do those backups contain all the data as well. If I restored, would everything come back, serums and data?

    Whoops, spoke too fast. Once I downloaded an app from the market the list got blanked out again.

    Maybe I should install clockwork, do a restore that I saved and then do the upgrade over that. Then put back clockwork, and make a fresh backup with the new system.

    Another day wasted! Lol!

    That is absolutely an option and I think it would work. Your data will just be returned to the point it was at when you made it. This is all part of the learning process.

    After much searching, I think I found what I should do but I want to run it by you first.

    I need to install (which I had it already without realizing it) e4gtauto-sfx.exe and maybe the zip version.

    I ran the 'runfirst.bat' file and go to the all the options and there behold was option C.

    Now my problem! It looks like from the list of options after hitting C, was El29+CWM (and it said in the description on the right something like 'stock' and then 'stock plus rouge'. What does this 'rouge' mean, it sounds dangerous to me.

    But it also looks like this will install the rom but it will do it without saving my data.

    From what I manged to read on xda, there was no packaging of EL29+Root+CWM with NODATA (keeping your data) yet!

    Let me see if I can get that link for you read to see if that is what is going on.

    And all that would mean is the if I install CWM using option C, it's going to erase the phone and just give me stock + root + cwm ... if I use the option on the page after you type C and the one that has that word 'rouge' in it.

    I would then have to rebuild my phone from scratch, a 4 day thing for me. LOL!

    Maybe I should wait for them to package up the one with the NODATA.

    Wow, I went to search in my history for the exact page that I read that statement from and I just can't find it.

    It said something about 'Chris' not providing a EL29+ROOT+CWM NODATA yet, or even if he is going to do it.

    Does that sound right, did you read that before yourself.

    I think I found about a thousand posts from you providing help to everyone, man your busy as hell!

    I really appreciate the time you've taken with me.

    I read one thing from you (I think it was you) about the difference between backing up with Titanium and a backup using CWM to backup the image of the system. The only thing that is not clear to me. Does the full backup of the system image include the data. For me, in the past when you said an image, you were doing a bit by bit backup of the drive, not a file backup. So you restore and exact image of the drive, system and data everything basically. Is that what the CWN is doing when you say it's backing up the image, its everything system and data, complete image. If so, that is terrific! Because then there would be nothing to fix up once you come reboot from a restore.

    Ok, I'll submit this and go walk the dog, he's looking at me with this strange look (like, man get me out, I have to go already!) LOL!

    Installing one of the kernel packages will not wipe your data. So you will not have to re set up your phone. I recommend using the package that says EL29 + rogue because it is the latest and greatest.

    Clockworkmod is the standard custom recovery and Rogue is just a modified version of that recovery that is a little easier on the eyes and short menu options. Other than that it is exactly the same.

    Clockworkmod or Rogue (Pretty much the same thing) when you make a back up, it will create 100% complete system image, when you restore this it will look exactly like it did before you made the back up. Using titanium back up only backs up specific application data and some system info if you chose it.

    I haven't done anything yet.

    I think I just want to make sure I am telling you the 2 options carefully.


    I think there is only one option to get the CWM.

    I'm going to try and do a screen shot of the choices.

    Attachment 21159

    From what I see I can only choose option L & M.

    L would contain CWM and M is only stock without CWM.

    Am I right, or do both contain CWM?

    Thanks!

    You are correct, go with option L.

    OK, I'm sitting here waiting for the phone to reboot! I finally hit the button and entered 'L' after I got your approval!

    What's interesting now is that somehow the startup boot screen no longer is saying Sprint and 4G, but this Android thing?

    What that changed by the installation, or was it something it picked up by what I tried to change a week ago and never took back then?

    I don't think it was one of the choices that I tried to use, from Rom Toolbox.

    But let's see if my data was lost, if it wasn't, I do have to do a factory reset. That stupid Market is still not showing my apps. I tried all the suggested things but they don't seem to fix the problem.

    I did the clear Framework, it works and shows the apps like it should until I do my first download from the market and then all the apps are missing, so I think that the database is either locked or corrupted. I wish I knew what the file name was, I'd just delete it and have the system recreate it.

    Ok, I'm back up and the phone is running again, not data seems to be lost. So you know your stuff, it did not touch the data.

    Let me try and reboot and see if the clockwork is installed.

    OK, it looks like Clockwork is there.. When I boot using the PWR + Vol UP I'm getting to a screen that says 'Team Rogue' with a green logo!

    I have options like 'Fix Permissions', Key test, Partition SD Card, reboot recovery, Install from zip file, backup and restore, mounts and storage and Advanced.

    Hmmmm.. there is something called Format /emmc... what is that?

    I'm wondering what the other option would have given me now?

    Maybe I can try that and see what I get?

    OK, thanks, this is terrific.. doing a backup now, of course I want to be safe and protect myself from myself! LOL!

    If I could fix that Market thing, then I won't bother with the restore stuff and go back to factory.

    Any ideas before I do a factory reset, which I really don't what to do?

    From this CWM, which I'm still in, I see I can do a recovery since I never deleted the files, I have 3 backup files dates. I have one from 1/9/2012, I think that is before I did the upgrade from El02 to EL29. Should I try that then do the upgrade again. Would that help in this Market missing the apps issue?

    Thanks one more time!

    The reason the boot animation change is because you are now on a stock repacked kernel that does not support boot animations. Not a big deal.

    Do NOT format! Unless specifically given directions to do it.

    No need for a factory reset yet. Have you tried installing the market.apk?? WHat about just reflashing SFhubs package again?
