Hey folks, noob question inc,

most of the ROMs in DEV section have the installation instructions 1.) wipe 2.) flash rom 3.) poweroff/on & "fastboot flash boot boot.img".

I dont seem to understand why 3. is neccesarry, can some1 explain it pls ? Differently put, by accident i forget step 3. and ROM seems to work like charm.

cheers

The boot.IMG for any cm based ROM in golfu is compatible with any cm based ROM.

You can use any N.O.P.E. or Prometheus kernel for all cm ROMs

thx! but one more question:
does this mean, installing the zip does NOT override boot.img? from now on i can skip 3.) as long as i stay with cm10?

cheers

Yeah. In phones like sgs2 you can flash boot.IMG but I don't think you can do that in this phone. Now you don't have to change kernel as long as you stay with cm10.
Hit thanks
