Didn't know Reinbeau was a moderator. Thanks!
Great idea, Tom, sometimes people go a little off topic in the development section, asking about very general stuff. Nice to have a more general thread and a more technical thread. ('course now I have another subscription to watch )

Well, Watsa was doing both. Both sides of the fence, if you will. Just that many more happy campers!

I just have to say....thank you thank you thank you.

This ROM is what the Captivate should have been the entire time. It took me awhile to get up to 2.3.5 with GB bootloaders and figure out how to flash it, but all of the info is there one the forums.

The SGS II email app alone made it worth it for me since I can now have my phone on WiFi and get my EAS email with zero problems. The stock 2.3.5 email app was still buggy for Exchange when WiFi was on and this fixed everything.

One question I have though. Can I pretty safely install each iteration of the Illuminance ROM over top of an older one? That is the only thing I was unable to find on the forums. I took the chance and installed 1.1 over top of 1.0.1 and have had no problems. I am just curious as to what is recommended.

Thank you again!

Anyone can make a non-transparent scroll down status(look like stock) for Illuminance v1.1 ROM?
The transparent one might get lag sometime... I am not sure why...?

First... Let me say that I am loving this ROM so far. I have not really been happy with any of the GB ROMS (Paragon RC6 on Froyo was my fav). Anyways, for some reason after flashing this ROM (coming from Obsession with Talon Kernel) I cannot get to me ext_sd card through CWM. From what I understand the CWM thing is part of the Kernel, so I downloaded the latest Samari 1.2 Kernel and flashed that. Still the same problem. Downloaded the Boog KJ3 Kernel and still the same problem. Any ideas what would cause this???

For the record my method for getting around not being able to access the external sd card is to put the files in the phone storage and flash from there.

To answer your question, yes. You can safely install each iteration of this ROM over or on top of an older one. Right now, each is a full wipe version, meaning you'll have to redo all apps and stuff, but in the future IlluminatedOne said he'd be doing upgrade versions. We'll have to wait and see. Either way it's well worth any effort. This is a great ROM

For the record my method for getting around not being able to access the external sd card is to put the files in the phone storage and flash from there.

Just for clarification... the internal 16GB sd card is called /sdcard. And the external sd card is found in the /sdcard folder and is called /external_sd. So is it the internal or external sd card that you're talking about?

Also when flashing anything CWM only allows you to go thru the sdcard (internal one), it says something like, 'install zip from sdcard', it will display the folder for your external sd card but won't let you install from there. That's why everything needs to be on the internal sd card before you try to install it. Hope this helps.
