Hi.
I have an issue with my Desire bravo. I can't install Evervolv's KK 4.4.
A year ago I used unrevoked3 to root my phone. It installed CWM 2.5.0.7. I had tried many 4.2.2 ROMs and than decided to stick with MildWild.
Now I want to try KK4.4 but I simply can't install it. CWM always writes: Status 0. Installation arborted.
I tried to update CWM through ROM manager but it won't update it. It writes that current version is 5.0.2.0, however when I boot into Recovery I can see that I have the same CWM.

Can somebody help me please?
Thanks.

I tried to flash it without success. Than I went to Hboot and it wrote that I had S-ON (that's strange). So I used Revolutionary to S-OFF my phone. It flashed CWM 4.0.1.4 and waw - everything works!

Lastly, uninstall ROM manager, it's bad for Desire. You don't need it.

As long as you only use CWM to install / wipe you'll be ok, do not use it to partition your sd card.

4EXT is generally a better recovery, and is also recommended for partitioning, you can install it using the 4EXT app or flash it through fastboot commands.

Now that you're S-OFF it's much more powerful (e.g. you can change hboot). You were wasting a lot of memory while S-ON with stock hboot and mildwild.

I have already flashed 4EXT.

What's the advantage of using custom hboots? I think that Evervolv's roms can be flashed only on stock hboot.

I have flashed Evervolv's nightly KK4.4. It seems to work OK (but I liked Jelly Bean's interface more).

Thank you guys.

custom hboots simply allow for more space, one of the primary reasons for gaining s-off and rooting in the first place

a custom hboot generally has a smaller /system and /cache and therefore more /data (internal memory)

depending on which mildwild rom, you only filled 100 to 130MB of the 250MB /system partition on stock hboot, which wastes max ~150MB. You could have used cm7r2 hboot or similar to nearly double the /data partition and hence more space for apps.

You're right though, now beside the point for ROMs like Evervolv which require stock hboot....
