Flashing recovery and rom on VZW 12b
Little bit of info on where I'm at at the moment. I have the VZW G2 and took the update to 12b before I rooted the phone. Rooted about a week ago without any hiccups but now I want to flash a recovery and then a rom--most likely http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2559920
this rom or any other very stable AOSP based roms. I've been researching for a while now and have seen multiple instances of people deleting things and messing up their phone big time. This is a pretty expensive device and I really don't want it to become a paperweight so I want to be as thorough as possible.
For the recovery, I've seen a couple different methods for twrp and cwm. I'd like to use this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2587296
one but I'm stuck with the instructions. This method http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2449670
gives excellent instructions but I am unsure if it is compatible with the 12b version. Can anyone that has successfully flashed TWRP using the second method chime in? Or if you've used the first method on 12b, explain how exactly I would flash twrp with it?
As for the rom, it gives excellent instructions but I want to be 100% positive that I won't brick my phone. What shouldn't I do when flashing this rom? I saw another thread that someone wiped the system before he was going to flash the rom and that wiped his rom too resulting in him bricking his phone. Any help or tips would be excellent. I'm very new to all this and really want to get into flashing and trying out all these great roms. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
