Because I have read some post about flashing boot.img, etc.
What if I want to return to stock rom? I have a backup (via CWM). would it work, if I restore that backup, or do I have to flash anything else?
I have root and bootloader unlocked.
installation instructions have been posted in the thread.
As with any development ROM, the safest method is to start with a clean device, but it is not always necessary. Because support is scarce, though, you might want to play safe cards only.
Two basic recommendations from the thread. They should be followed, at least if you want some chance of answers to support questions:
- Flash the provided boot.img
- Make sure you run baseband 64
Installation is basically:
- Prepare yourself and the device (make backups of everything of value, charge the battery, sleep well, write your last will)
- Copy the zip file to the SD card
- Copy the google apps zip file to the SD card
- flash boot.img
- when booting, get to recovery mode
- update zip
- install google apps
- wipe caches
This mod is system only, so you may be fine without deleting the data partition.
Take your time to read the entire thread :D There's no harm reading in on CM7 in general either. Remember that you are installing a community run ROM, so there is no guarantee that you will get help when in trouble. You should mostly be fine, but you should be aware of the risks.
