Thanks to spjetrovic we have the update.zip for the GB update for your use now

http://www.multiupload.com/HAG3RFTBY6

1. Follow imnuts instructions for preparing for OTA found here http://rootzwiki.com/topic/10202-how...or-the-gb-ota/
2. place file on root of SD card and rename to update.zip
3. boot to stock recovery and select apply update.zip from sd card

It takes a while to complete, so be patient. Make sure you have plenty of battery.

ps. No one is responsible for what you do to your phone except you. This has been tested by at least a dozen people in IRC and works flawlessly when you follow the directions.

pss. this build is 4 days newer than "EP4P" regardless of what the numbering scheme may be.

GOS,

It is the OTA update that will roll out later next week. It contains all the changes from EE4 to EP4 rom/kernel/recovery/ect.. It is just changes, by no way a stand-alone flash.

And I didn't post in Development, because I didn't develop it. It can be moved if the mods think it belongs there.

How do you flash Imo's kernel if my recovery doesn't stick, and can't get into recovery?

you can't let the phone boot after you flash CWM. unselect auto-reboot and then boot straight to recovery after flash

Here are my instructions for getting all this to work:

BEFORE YOU ODIN BACK TO EE4, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE SU FLASHABLE ZIP, THE OTA UPDATE AND IMOSEYON'S KERNEL ON YOUR SDCARD!

Make sure the update file is renamed to "update" and that it's on the root of your sdcard. (not in any folders or anything)

Odin back to EE4. Reboot normally.

Turn the phone off, then reboot into Stock Recovery and run the update.

Once the update finishes and the phone boots regularly. Reboot into Download Mode and plug the phone into the computer.

Start Odin, Uncheck "Auto Reboot", select PDA, NOT PHONE!

Click on the PDA tab and find your recovery file then click "start."

Once it is done and you see the word "PASS" on Odin, unplug the usb cable and press down all three buttons to boot into recovery (volume up, home, power)

Once in recovery, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, mount /system and flash the SU flashable zip.

Go back and wipe cache and dalvik again, mount /system again and flash the kernel.

After that, your recovery will stick and you're good to go. You are now rooted and running on EP4D.
