Hello, I'm fairly new to all this. Just rooted my phone for the first time. I have TWRP on it right now. I tried cwm before this.
Having trouble flashing a custom rom onto my phone.. seems to complain about the model number.. anyone know what I can do to avoid this? or maybe a better resource for getting custom roms?
I'm sort of in that "I've rooted my phone.. now what.." time..
edit: should add that I'm on Wind with T999v.
A common problem. Because some ROMS check to ensure that people are not flashing them to the wrong device
There is a couple of solutions but here is the one I would suggest trying this:
Manually open up the rom you are installing in 7zip and goto the installer script which is in
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "d2tmo" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "d2tmo");
See how this rom is searching for d2tmo. But we are not d2tmo ! So it fails if you remove this line you should be able to install.
Sorry for formatting / spelling posted quickly from phone.
Awesome. That's good to know it's a common problem. I had this moment of dread thinking that I voided my warranty for nothing
Is that generally safe? ie if i install a rom like that would I be able to restore to backup if it breaks? Also I'm hoping to put cyanogen 10.1 on my phone, do you know if either sprint or tmobile will work with wind?
Edit: when I try to boot with cyanogenmod it just spins.. luckily I was able to restore my backup.. with a bit of difficulty
Edit2: For anyone else that might be on a similar path as me, factory reset from cwm prior to installing the rom fixed this issue.
