[Q] first time trying to install new rom on NOTE 2 - aroma installer freeze
Hello. As you can guess, I need help.
I'm trying to install a custom rom, but the installation seem to stop on the aroma installer
quick background :
I have already installed custom roms on a few other devices ( kindle fire, HTC desire, and desire HD )
First time trying it on my Note2 N7100.
I spent about 5/6 hours reading the forums, trying to sort out what I was going to do. Here is what I tried.
I start from stock, never touched 4.1.2
I use Odin and flash Philz recovery 6.07.9
Reboot on said recovery, go to wipe and clean to install new rom
install rom, select zip from external SDCARD
aroma start ...
I see conditions, accept
I see changelog, press next.
And nothing happens. Screen stay the same, installer doesn't respond to anything or gives any sign of being installing anything.
After about 5 minutes, I decided to reboot the phone. I can still reboot in recovery.
I tried with phoenix rom. Pretty much the same, except if happened when I pressed backup EFS
So, is this step supposed to be extra long and without any indication about what is happening ?
Is there anything that can make the aroma installer crash like that ?
Any help welcome.
In the meantime, I will be downloading pre-rooted stock and try to flash one of those.
Edit : I am now considering the possibility that readng and external SDcard is what's causing crashs. But I do not have rom images on the phone memory, and already wiped system.
Any way to access internal memory from recovery to copy rom and try flashing purely from internal memory ?
