    I've been reading around for a bit, and it's just a lot of info for me to take in in one sitting. I'm on stock rooted 2.3.3, with the OldBB recovery installed from Rom Manager. Could I flash a rom like AOKP for the P500? Is there some sort of issue when flashing P500 roms onto the P505? I think I've heard of a colour issue. And what's the stuff about a kernel to fix problems? Thanks in advance,

    Yes most p500 roms you can flash. You will need to flash arjens kernel for it to work properly.
    Just be sure you understand what your doing . But will be here to help if something goes wrong.
    happy flashing

    Unless Arjen has updated his kernel to include all the functionality any of the gingerbread roms will need to be flashed with Joban's kernel and then Arjens (its goofy yes but it works)

    All you need to do is flash Arjens kernel over any kernel for arjens to work.

    Don't forget to make a nand back up!

    If you are on cm7 make sure to flash joban kernel before arjens kernel or you will have problems.

    Hi, when I hold Power-Vol Down-Home to boot into recovery, it always freezes or goes into fastboot mode, how can I get the recovery working? I installed Clockworkmod through ROM Manager, by choosing the OldBB version for the P500.

    Try the Vol-up instead of down.

    Haha, wow, thanks. Sorry for not trying the other combo, I guess I should have experimented.

    Hi, so I was wondering what the kernel was. I saw that Arjen had a gingerbread kernel, but the AOKP I am trying to flash is 4.0.4. I just tried flashing to see what it would look like, and boy it looks ugly. Where is the kernel that fixes colours for any rom?

    The kernel resides in its thread.

    I don't think arjen ever got around to creating a gb kernel for our phone.

    Sorry, so what kernel do I have to fix the colour issues on P500 roms? I want to use AOKP Milestone #6, which is an ICS rom.

    Nope i think the only gb kernel arjen released was bugged bad, it wasnt usable. The link in the thread is dead now also. Somehow my cm7 method created a franken-kernel, lucky for us, works perfect on gb.

    What recovery version does ROM manager install? I looked in the forums for the ported CWM, but there seem to be compatibility issues with P500 roms. Now I'm interested in Paranoid Android, and it says it requires CWM ver 5+.

    When you going into the recovery it will tell you at the top of the screen, or inside ROM manager it will tell you what version you have installed. If you have one installed at all.

    I tried to flash the CM10 rom for the p500 and it does not work at all. The rom has to be trimmed- which means you have to re-cut the rom to make it smaller. Not within my abilities and I had no idea this is how it worked. All I knew is my phone was not working properly- no home button, no wifi, no gps. If this happens to you, the rom may be too big for this phone.

    Here is the trimming tool. Makes trimming ICS and JB roms very simple.
