^ Use CWM to choose the .zip for in installation, and then wipe /data and /cache using the options on the CWM main menu. That should allow the phone to boot.

Are there any advantages of using Data2Ext over using Link2SD? I opted to go with Link2SD because it was easy to install. Am I missing out on something that Data2Ext offers?

Link2SD simply moves parts of installed apps to sd-ext, while keeping part of them on the phone's internal memory. With this method, the maximum memory space on the phone is still 115mb, each app just uses less of it. Data2ext mounts the entire sd-ext partition as /data, which means that instead of having a physical limit at 115mb, the phone now has (in my case anyways) 1GB of memory to address for apps.

^ I have firehak's data2ext running on my phone, works great without a hang. I have 827mb of total internal memory, on a 1024mb partition. I guess some space was lost in formatting.

And no, the kernel packed with this is just the stock kernel with data2ext support. Dmrlook still has to make a version of his kernel that supports it.

Can you give some directions on how to get data2ext installed?

I pretty much just followed firehak's instructions in the .pdf in his download found here:

I had trouble formatting my partitions to EXT3 using the method in his guide, so I made my partitions in CWM (CWM partitions are automatically formatted to EXT3). So I skipped to Step 8 in firehak's guide (formatting to EXT4) and then continued from there.You don't really need to format to EXT4 to get this to work, so I suppose you could just format the partitions in CWM, and then simply flash the boot.img in firehak's download. I just chose EXT4 because it performs better. If you're not running Phoenix ROM, or you don't have CWM, you should just follow firehak's guide step for step.

Make sure your SD Card is 4GB or more. Class 6 or 10 is recommended. I used a 16GB Class 10 card.

Thanks Rodya, that should make life easier for everyone wanting to do this. For me, it was the biggest driver for me to move away from stock and install the phoenix rom

I was running Phoenix .2 and DMRLook's kernel. Then I went the hard route and got init.d installed and went with INT2EXT+ since I was unable to find data2ext (that is before you were kind enough to post the above). I don't know if there is any advantage to running data2ext -vs- int2ext+, have any thoughts on that?

I am running a 8GB class 10 SD card, so I am set there. I bought the card way back when Firehak first mentioned phoenix.3 would have data2ext support, anxiously awaiting the day. I have slightly under 1GB ext4 partition for the above.

This ROM is the only Gingerbread based ROM for the Replenish. There is LeafROM, but it's based off Froyo and is terribly outdated.

I can't speak as to whether or not it would work with a boost replenish, the only way to tell would be to make a backup in CWM and try it out.

Firehack, I have being following you for a bit, since I bought my replenish 4 months a go, with Buust Mobile (not sure if allowed to mention provider's name, so replaced the double O with U) To be clear, a friend told me to follow your work..........I have being reading this thread since page one, honestly I haven't finish all the pages but have a few questions, My phone is from provider mention before BM who uses Spreent Antennas. This excellent job that you have done, can I use it with my replenish? I thought replenish was O.S Gingerbread, saw at the first and a few post after mention O.S.Froyo, Also, My Replenish is fully functional with the provider, all unlimited, all I want is remove those apps I'll never use called bloat, like the ID thingy, Thanks in advance TURBO

Re: [ACS][ROM] Phoenix ROM 0.2 & 0.3 RC

...The installation process would have been really easy to do except that the Odin program kept failing when communicating with the phone, even though I had installed the drivers (without errors), both from Windows update, and then later from Samsung's website on my modern, Windows 7 desktop PC. Oddly, I could access the USB storage and Odin reported that it could see the phone on the COM port (or something) but then Odin always failed after I clicked "Start". I tried a couple different USB ports on my desktop PC, but I kept getting the following error message once I started running Odin. "Cannot open the usb serial port. code: 32". Eventually I gave up, ran Odin from my laptop PC, and everything went perfectly smoothly.

Anyone else have this problem? I can't get past the error message after clicking on Start in Odin either. I guess that I will try with an XP or another Win7 machine later on and see if that works.

Thanks, Keith

Uninstall drivers, reboot pc, install drivers, make sure usb debugging is on/checked.
