I hate to be that guy...but I need some clarification on flashing skinny4g...

Do I just flash it via CWM, or do I have to follow a completely different process?

I guess it's the bootstrap instructing that confuses me; is bootstrap something different from the CWM recovery?

I'll be in Chicago in a week and a half and would like to try out 4G...any help, greatly appreciated.

I've been flashing stuff for just over a year, so I'm not a complete idiot, just confused. LOL

Yes, bootstrap is different from cwm. If your rooted you can use rom manager to flash cwm, that's the easiest way to do it. But you need to be unlocked which can be done by connecting to adb the going into fastboot mode and typing "fastboot OEM unlock ********" the stars being your unique id

Will we ever see an update on this rom? I flash ICS and camera seems a bit borked for me... these here and CM7 are the only 100% functioning roms around... I already stated before that these roms had an issue when adding to the main screen a Motorola Contact Shortcut and other Moto widgets...

... thanks in advance for any reply joker! (I know you are around, you are always around here )

Think of bootstrap as a temporary partial cwm of which u can use to flash the real cwm. I would advise jokers recovery if you think you'll be trying out cm9 again. Using rom manager will not work for flashing cm9 build, its not 100% yet. U will get stuck at the moto logo. Jokers recovery from his site will work fine for anything u need to flash.

Thanks for that info about cm9. I was thinking about trying out cm9 but don't know how hard it would be to flash back to cm7 if I don't like it

No problem. Its Super easy. Just be careful when restoring system files via titanium. Try to only backup what u need and apps. When u bounce between cm9-7 make sure to format system & data & cache in recovery then reboot recovery then wipe all then install rom. It seems like a lot but its really not and once your in the swing of things it literally takes 5 minutes to switch back and forth. A nandroid backup is always recommended
(Edit) if your on cm7 just make a nandroid backup. If you don't like cm9 just restore your backup and your right where you started. I guarantee you will love cm9 though and you won't switch back
Pm me if you need help.
