[Edit] You need to flash back the firmware 1.17 if you are not supercid'ed from 'User-Friendly Firmware 1.17/3.12/3.24 Unlocked(No need to SuperCID)'

Restoring the NAND Backup was a success

Glad it worked for you. I'll add 1.17 user friendly firmware link to the op

[Edit 2]: installing 4EXT RC3 from 3.6.13 was working and then i've been able to flash and boot 6.2.1 Revolution HD
Unfortunately it seems there is a bug to setup a pin to unlock the phone (which is requested by my Exchange company server) so i have to go back to 3.6.13 right now
One last question. I have a sensation, not a Sensation XE. Can i say yes to flash at 1.5GHz flashing the XE version of the 6.2.1 ROM ?

Anyway thanks for your Help

PS! may be you can specify that RC2 is not working.RC3 is mandatory

Yes you can flash the 1.5GHz kernel. It will be faster but may not be as stable.

Saying that, I flashed the 1.5 kernel and have had no problems.

Even running on 1.7 GHz is working stable for me.

I've been running @1.5GHz and my phone is rock solid. No problem whatsoever and the battery life is great. Around 17~20 hours with moderate-heavy use including push gmail, whatsapp, gaming, fb'ing, browsing and 2 hours screen on aprox.

Hi!

Great guide guys!

Just a curious question:

Coming from ARDH 4.1.x, I was able to flash ARHD 6.2.1 XE but my 4EXT touch was only RC2. And I noticed that I was not given a choice about Sony Bravia installation or 1.5 ghz Kernel, just indicated "canceling.."

Was it because of RC2, I cannot make a choice during installation?? Or there is number of seconds limit (I set aside the phone on the table while waiting).

Anyway, afterwards I manually flashed 1.5 ghz SebastianFM Kernel

Thanks for the feedback i'm glad it worked for you. I don't know if there is a time limit to make a choice while flashing the ROM but, you should upgrade your recovery to the latest RC3. There was a bug in RC2 and didn't last a day out when the RC3 update was available. SO, it's highly recommended you upgrade your recovery.

You can always reflash the same rom without superwiping and all your data will be saved and you will have the chance to choose the sony bravia engine and 1.5Ghz kernel.

Thanks for the guide, I just read it all through though and theres one bit i dont get...
You say to remove SD card after flashing the firmware, then boot into recovery, then put SD card back in so u can delete it - youd have to take the battery out to put the SD card back in, so surely the phone would turn off and i'd have to reboot back into the bootloader and the firmware would try and install again??

Thanks for helping

No need to pull the battery out to take out your sd card. If u want to take the Sim card out, u need to pull out the battery. Have u open up your back cover before?

ARHD still have bugs http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1405457 . U sure u want to install that rom?
