I reboot the device and it just sits on the nexus logo screen. I dont know what i did wrong. Anybody got any ideas
You need to reboot back into your custom recovery. Then before u flash any new ROM you need to

Go to wipe
Wipe cache 3x
Wipe dalvik cache 3x
Factory reset 3x
Wipe system 3x
Go back
Go to install
Install ROM
Install Gapps (If needed)
Reboot
Enjoy

Hey guys, anyone have any idea how to restore the "auto revert recovery" feature?

I have accidentally disabled it and can't seem to re-enable it even if I rename it from install-recovery.bak to install-recovery.sh in /system/etc/

Hi guys,

I run on stock, rooted. I installed the Beats mod and a softbutton mod (ics blue colored). I just received the 4.2.2 OTA. Wat should I do? I read something about returning to stock first, because of the mods I installed. Is this really necessary? Do I need to install Rootkeeper? I have SuperSU.. What is the best option to do for me to get 4.2.2 but still stay rooted and keep my modus? Thanks!

Default 4.2.2 - Settings -> Security = Force Close?

Hi all,

Just got my OTA update to 4.2.2 this morning and after reading about the new ADB security feature, I thought right, it's time to set a pattern lock. So I pull down the notification shade, switch to quick settings, then hit settings, scroll down to security and BAM, force close.

Tried it multiple times, still the same. Rebooted, same.

I'm rooted, and I restored root using OTA rootkeeper after the update, and all seemed fine as far as root access goes ...

I temp-unrooted, security still FCs.

I restored root, same thing.

I temp-unrooted again, and rebooted ... still the same thing.

My overall question is, is it just me? Does it work fine for everyone else?

Cheers!
Thank me, don't thank me ... I don't really care!

Its how you install a rom or update package using adb

That option is how people have to manually update their phone with 4.2.2 update package from Google.
