    I rooted for the first time a few weeks ago, just installed SC 2.9

    I'm really not a fan of the notification bar.

    Are there any others out there that I can install that some of you are using?

    Hi there,

    I'm a win-mo user move to droid and I've been reading up on flashing new roms, specifically this one, the EB01 for the fascinate. I've seen a bunch of threads but trying to get the right process down for actually doing it. Some say I need to flash the Froyo modem, some (like this one) doesn't mention flashing the modem. Does that mean its already packaged in the md5 file?

    Here's my list of to do's before flashing (i plan things out).

    1) Install Drivers (already done)
    2) Root the phone using one click root
    3) Install clockwork Mod (Newest version from jt1134). Using Odin. Download update.zip and throw it on the SD Card
    4) Perform and nandroid backup from Clockwork
    5) Wipe system/set to factory reset, wipe cache, wipe davlik cache
    6) Perform all the steps in this thread to flash the EB01 rom with Odin
    7) Boot up to EB01

    Can anyone tell me if this looks right? I would assume going back to my backup is as simple as booting into clockwork and restoring the nandroid backup I took.

    Thanks for the help, I'm excited to start learning more about flashing/rooting and android itself.

    my packages include the modem and are prerooted, and as long as you stay away from the nonwipe versions it will wipe data and cach for you

    these are the only steps you need
    1) Install Drivers (already done)
    6) Perform all the steps in this thread to flash the EB01 rom with Odin
    7) Boot up to EB01

    if you run into any trouble please check post #4 for troubeshooting tips or feel free to ask, but i am going to sleep now but im sure there will be many people who can help you
    good luck

    Is there any advantage/disadvantage to install 2.9 with the wipe/no wipe option? I know one keeps your apps installed but i wasn't sure if there was any other benefits. New to this any loving it but trying to understand too. I'm having trouble with 2.8 so I want to choose the best path even if I have to reinstall things. Thanks!

    Since you're coming from 2.8 you won't need wipe version. Just make sure you clean your cache partition and dcache in cwm.

    Hi quick question i have 2 fascinates i flashed 2.9 on both phones with DXC packages and the problem is that on one phone i can hit the back button from my contacts and it will go back to the home screen and the other phone won't do that for some reason. the one that goes back from my contacts was red CWM and the one that won't was orange CWM if that helps.

    Generally if you're having issues, it's a good idea to start with a clean slate since corrupt data, etc can cause problems.

    I've had the same problem, I think it was noted a while back to delete the Contacts shortcut and make it again. That fixed it for me, good luck!

    Since you already have 2.8, you don't need to use the wipe-version of 2.9, but.... if you're having any kinds of quirky issues, then the call is yours. You could wipe cache and Dalvik, and then just reboot a couple of times and then see if your issues are resolved. Or... you could just load the wipe version and know that those things will be done as part of the process for upgrading WITH the wipe version.

    Some issues might be addressed by just reflashing the modem, and others have needed to throttle back to DI01 and then up to 2.X. No two people have the same stuff on their phone, and it's hard to perform differential diagnostics between them when there are so many variables.

    Personally, I'd wipe cache and Dalvik, reboot. Wait 5 minutes and reboot again. Whatever your "issues" are may just go away. If you would be willing to post what those issues are after that, maybe someone here with similar experiences can help.

    I wish that I could help you drinkhere, but I've not heard of this, nor experienced it. Try what TheGord did, and see if that's helpful.

    Does the new non-data wipe version of 2.9 fix the red cwm with the bitmap errors so it should now bypass blue stock recovery?
    Is it even necessary to place the update.zip on the sdcard anymore?

    have you tried flashing cwm-recovery-all with odin, then reflashing sc 2.9 in that cwm?

    All I can offer is that update.zip is not needed if you're using Odin. Update.zip is only used for recovery. You can successfully flash with Odin and not have placed update.zip on your SD card.

    Any more than that, and you'll have to get Landshark or DXC to answer up on, as I'm unsure.

    This happened to me and there was a post somewhere that helped me fix it but I don't remember where. I think you long press your contacts icon and go to change shortcut and set phone as the new shortcut. Then long press and change back to contacts again. Then reboot. This worked fire me at least when it happened on sc 2.6 I think.

    I currently am running the 2.4 version (did a full wipe and whatnot), my question is how do I get 2.9 on it without wiping it? Thanks in advance!

    Flash the 2.9 zip and then the 2.9. 1 patch. Don't forget to wipe cache and dcache.

    How do you flash it? Do you hold down the volume button and enter CWM? I've only flashed through ODIN (using the directions provided)

    1.Download the .zip file
    2. put it in the root of your SD card.
    3. boot in to clockwork recovery ( letters should be in blue)
    4. select update.zip
    5. this will take you to clockwork recovery (red)
    6. highlight install zip from sd card
    7. highlight the 2.9 rom
    8 select yes
    9. Voila you have SFC 2.9
    10 drink a beer and enjoy

    that is correct sir.

    Edit: once you flash the 2.9 you can delete the update.zip since it was used as a key to get into CWM. Thanks to the dev for 2.9 we can just go straight to it.
