If you have more than 10 posts its a better idea to ask ur questions in ROM thread, else this thread is for you.

Safe Flashing from Gingerbread
Thank you for starting this thread

I am currently running Apex 6.3 and want to flash to a newer rom, Apex 7.

I have a Rogers phone I896 and so I no longer have my volume buttons working to put it in to recovery or download mode, I have read not to load any kinda fix for that(something about two boot loaders being a bad idea).

My understanding is that I have to go back to stock before flashing a new rom(I have seen you have roms that can be upgraded rather then re-flashed) but I want to wipe my internal sd card and flash like new.

Do I just use ODIN 1 click and go back to stock and use it to clean my sd card, is that a safe option or am I missing something?

If I remember correctly I had to do like 2 or 3 steps to flash Gingerbread from from stock rom, load boot loaders, load kernel, load rom. So I am wondering if it is 1 step to go back to stock ?

I know I have seen a post on a thread on this but to find it when needed is not so easy, XDA-Developers has grown big time since I started with WM5(Android is all new to me)

Hi I had a question concerning running new boot animations for APEX 7 with Update-1 package.
I found this boot animation http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1121014 that I would like to install but it seems as though it isn't working. Is it possible with this ROM to get new boot animations?

Thank You

So you can't put the phone into download mode?

Odin 1 click is pretty straight forward from what I remember. First I boot up the phone normally and hit "master clear". Second I put the phone into download mode and hit the "Start" button which goes and installs the stock firmware. Obviously you need to be in debug mode to do all this so make sure you're good with that.

I don't know if you already have it but here is a link for the Odin 1 click I use.

If you are already on ApeX 6.x you can flash 7 using CWM.. No need to ODIN back to JF6.

In worst case if u have to ODIN back that should be to stock GB.

But as i said just flash 7 on top of 6.3 by going into recovery mode

First off I want to say thank you for making an awesome ROM. Loving it thus far and has been running flawlessly except for one minor issue I ran into tonight. For the MIUI lockscreen the phone freezes then goes to the android boot animation screen and right back to the MIUI lock screen whenever I try to unlock with SMS unlock. Is this a known issue with the screen unlock concerning MIUI?

U have not set custom app for lockscreens. clicking on message icon takes u to custom app u select and since u have not selected it reboots.

See ROM OP on how to do it.

Thanks for ur feedback buddy

dear sir
hey! amazing job on this one looks really promising! I have GR-12 on my cappy with the latest talon kernel and GB bootloader. my question is, if i want to install this do i need to flash back to stock 2.1 and do the entire process (reinstall talon and bootloader then install your rom)? OR can i just enter recovery mode with my phone currently using gr-12 and use CWM to install APEX 7 rom? either way i have to first install apex 7 then use cwm to install update 1 directly after correct?
