[Q] Generic vs Branded rom
Hi guys this is my first post here so be gentle! I'm trying to get cyanogen mod on my Z1.
I have followed the guides on this forum, my appreciation to all involved here great job!
I downgraded to 4.2.2 from 4.3. I then rooted my the phone. I then unlocked the bootloader.
All went ok. I then downloaded C6903_14.2.A.0.290_1276-0875_Generic UK.ftf and flashed it. The phone then wouldn't turn back on.
So I downloaded C6903 14.1.G.1.534 EE UK 1276-2219_R9A (I'm on EE) and flashed that and I got the phone working again.
I then flashed DoomKernal to get CWM. DoomKernal went fine.
Somewhere along the line I think I got confused and thought DoomKernal would give me CWM and I flashed C6903_14.2.A.0.290_1276-0875_Generic UK.ftf again to upgrade back to 4.3.
Same problem...Phone wouldn't turn on so I repeated the EE branded 4.2.2 flash.
Now DoomKernal seems to be taken off. So my questions are as followed:
Do i need DoomKernal to get CWM?
Do i need to be on 4.4 before I install Cyanogen mod or can I do it straight from 4.2.2 with DoomKernal?
If I'm being a total noob I apologize!
