The firat time you start doomkernel it will seem like your phone is bricked as soon as you press power atart pressing the back button and a screen will come up that will allow you to install a Rom off the sd card. I thought mune was bricked firat time. When doom starts the blue led starts its not flash its just what it does.

1. Turn on the phone
2. Press back button until Rom flashing screen pops up
3. Install Rom from sd
4. Boot rom

Is this OneClickRoot`s problem`s, or it just suppose to take long time, or what?

Most custom Roms are prerooted, so if you're going to install one anyway, you don't have to root your Play manually.

If you can't flash .ftf through flashtool, you could try another download source, had a similar problem a few months ago, many downloads simply didn't work. And using another USB port on my computer fixed my problem with the flash process getting stuck while flashing with flashtool, was strange, but solved the problem.

By the way, if this .238 is android 2.3.4 it probably can't be rooted, if you want stock rom with root you have to downgrade to 2.3.3

Well, I'm rooted with .238, but my problem is that google apps don't work - it tries to download apps and then stop the ddownload, without any error (Every app)..
So I thought I would try to install a costum ROM, problem is - I cant install recovery.. Tried a few methods, all didn't work.. 2 option, either I didn't succeed on download and installing the recovery, or I can't boot into it..
Any help pls?
