Now that I am sober I want to thank eyahl, nenad_l and ben_pyett for your input.
I managed to get the rom working last night (drunk and all as I was
I am now running a MIUI rom
Baseband version: 20.4801.30.0822U_3822.10.08.04_M
I need to ask a couple more questions if I may?
The interface is not what I am used to and don't particularly like it. It reminds me of the UI I had on my old Galaxy I9000. Is this as a result of my kernel version?
Kernel version: 188.8.131.52-cyanogenmod+nexx@android-dev#1 Thur Oct 6 14:48:57 BST 2011
My understanding of what I have done by flashing the boot.img is that my kernel is that of the rom from where the boot.img was taken and the MIUI rom sits atop - is this correct?
So if I extract a boot.img from a different rom and then flash I will have a different kernel version and subsequently return my UI to (SENSE) that I'm more familiar to?
Sorry for the n00b questions but I am only learning about this at the moment
