Maybe it's because One Cos doesn't have a stable proprietary kernel builder and switches on every update? Anyway ima gonna try the latest vib zip instead of the 9000 zip +++ fixes.Chime in please if you've steer me to something that makes it smoother
Latest RC3.1 Vibe zip still had to have things "fixed" up to flash successfully. The code to check if the phone was i9000 was still present, build.prop still identified phone as i9000, and the modem was also for the i9000. Once I stripped out the i9000 code and replaced the modem, the rom installed.
I ended up having trouble with the included Platypus kernel. I ended up installing RC3.1 then Eugene's kernel. Once the dust finally settled, I had a pretty stable RC3.1. I've since moved on to a more recent Platty kernel, because Eugene's had issues with the video camera, which I need.
Just make sure you have a Nandroid to restore if things go south.
