hey guys. I don't see the installation method in the first posts. Is it via CWM? I only have to flash the zip, isn't it?

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.

Thx!

Hi,
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
  • reboot

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.

Good luck,

//

Hi bekkra, and thanks! I have searched this post for that instructions, but I couldn't find them. I found this:

  1. flashed boot.img via fastboot
  2. installed update-cm-9.0.0-RC0-LT18i-KANG-signed.zip via CWM
  3. installed gapps-ics-20111230.zip via CWM
anything i did wrong?

What is more or less what I thought. But let me ask a few questions:

I currently can boot to the CWM, so... Is it necessary to flash boot.img? Is that flash permanent? Because my current CWM is just a "one boot thing" and works really well.

I have baseband 56 in my phone. I am downloading baseband 64, but I don't know how to flash that file. I'll take a look for a flashtool guide... But, can I flash it having stock rom .42?

Coming form other rom, shloudn't I format /system before I flash this ROM? If I didn't I would get a mix of stock and customized rom APKs...

Thanks again.

You should add 'usb tether' in not working list. Damn. Waste my bandwidth.

Do we expect the FM to be fixed in next release of CM 7.2 ?

i'm really excited to make another MIUI rom with working FM.

Good luck FXP .
