INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS [v1.5] :
NOTE: Its is highly recommended to make a complete nandroid backup(including boot.img) before installing.
Also disable Signature verification every time you flash a zip because they are not signed.
1) Download 'Bala's_ROM_v1.5.7z
'. Extract it.
You will have a folder named 'Bala's_ROM_v1.5
In that you'll have PART-1.zip
(These are flashable zips.So do not extract them)
2) Copy the folder & place it in your sdcard's root.
3) Now boot into recovery and choose - flash zip from sdcard
--> select zip from sdcard
--> #open folder#'Bala's_ROM_v1.5
' --> select PART -1
Let it install without any error. Now try booting
your mobile. The phone will not boot
(more clearly: should not boot if installation completed correctly ! lol !
4) Now, before installing PART-2
, mount 'System
' & 'Data
' in recovery (i.e) mounts
and then data
. Now install PART-2
by steps followed above !
[Now try booting. It should
boot now !! LOL
[WHAT YOU BOOTED ABOVE IS NOT THE FULLY WORKING ROM, MANY THINGS DOESN'T WORK !! SO BOOT AGAIN TO RECOVERY
4) Again, with similar steps followed before, install PART-3
5) After installing PART-3, a do a full wipe/Factory reset in the recovery. (It is a must)
THATS ALL !!This is Complete Version 1.5. You have successfully installed VERSION 1.5. Sorry for making it large. I'll try reduce it later.
STEPS TO ENABLE A2SD after installing the ROM:
1) Make a backup
of all your sdcard files in your computer because partitioning will erase all your files.
2)Now boot in recovery
--> partition sdcard
--> partition sdcard
--> Swap size: 0mb
--> Choose size of the partition that you prefer (recommended 1024mb)(not more than 1399 mb
because beta 04 supports till that only)
Let it partition your sd without any error !!
If you are partitioning for the 1st time with recovery, the default type of the partition will be ext2
- that is what we need & with this a2sd will work
If you have mistakenly upgraded your partition to ext3 or ext4, then use MiniTool Partition Wizard (its free) and change your partition to ext2. Only then a2sd will work.]
Now boot normally. Now with the help of A2SD GUI app, make apps to be stored in sdcard(will be on the main-screen!). Your phone will reboot once or few times. Read more about using A2SD GUI in the following 2nd or 3rd post !!
VOILA !! a2sd is working !!! You can verify/view its space with titanium backup
Now you can place all your files back on your sdcard.
With recovery you can even backup your sd-ext whenever required. (sd-ext is the place where apps which you install will be stored)
(sorry for making it large !)
