I have stock rom 2.3.5 atm and international 5.0 player with physical home button. If that's what you meant.

I see. Then you need to go to the kernel thread here and flash the kernel first using Odin. After flashing the kernel, you will actually get the CWM recovery as a by-product.

After that, do a nanadroid backup in CWM. Then you are ready to flash new ROMs.

Hmm when I try to flash the kernel with odin it fails and then i get a PHONE--(!)--COMPUTER icon. Soft brick. I can get out of the soft-brick but I can't flash anything using Odin, which is weird.

what's wrong?

Odin used to work perfectly fine before, but now nothing will work. I tried erytgits rom and several othersbut they all fail

That's odd. I also see your posts in another thread. Did you recover from a soft-brick recently. May be there is still some left over problems.

BTW, my Odin is v1.85. When I flash kernel, I only flash with the PDA option (without PIT).

I have a 5.0 US and you said there is no kernel included. I am willing to test. Let me know if anyone else has tried before I do. Thanks.

Allrighty. Good news for me

It turned out it was my computer that let Odin fail. I did close all Kies processes and services but still it failed.
Then I moved to another computer (32 bit) and the rj13 kernel flashed
I just did the cwm flashing...so far...uhm

crap bootloop now what darned I had too much hope

There is a zip package in 1st post called "Format-ext4". Try flashing it before flashing the ROM. It will clean up all the partitions required by the ROM to ensure there are no leftover files from previous ROM.

I haven't put in any device hack in this ROM. So, incompatible apps will behave the same as in stock ROM.

I can confirm your theory for US 5.0 it is working just fine. So it IS compatible with the US 5.0 I am using entroph's Kernel.
