$35 is Sprint's warranty handling fee for people with no insurance.

Thats crazy, I couldnt imagine paying $35 for a replacement. Ive gone through 7 epics, always next day delivered to store if they didnt have them in stock, always free (except for the $8 a month for black tie). I love insurance.

I'm not sure how necessary it'd be, but I could perhaps go about doing so. Hmmmm, maybe.

Thanks for the write-up, AproSamurai. Now if I could just make myself sit through 7:21 of video and see what QBKing77 has to say, I'll be caught up on the major MTD tutorials available in the Epic forums!

Great news on MTD. Hopefully this makes the Cyanogenmod port a little more flexible and easier to maintain. I know it's been a beast.

I've been mostly running ROMs like Syndicate Froyo and lately ACS ICS 5.5. I don't use 4g much so I'm alright leaving that behind (for now) if/when the MTD roms get more solid.

Hopefully we see many/most Epic devs move over to MTD. Once we have more selection on MTD format I'm sure we'll have an easier time getting users to test new builds of Cyanogen and (hopefully) ICS one day.

The representative from sprint told me that the only way i would have been able to brick it like that (would not turn on, no recovery mode, and no download mode and when plugged the charger in it wouldnt charge or be recognized by the computer) is if i rooted it which voided my warranty and wouldnt be covered by insurance.
I know right? I never bricked a phone, but I've came damn close (no boot, no download mode, etc.). I even exploded an LCD but with 35 bux (and *no* warranty) I was able to get a replacement phone. ODIN = Your best friend if you have an EPIC, do not fear it my friend. You can be back on stock in like 5 min.

wow, i totally just quoted the wrong post. this was to the dude who didnt want to odin after going to miui without knowing about MTD

Just to add to this, if you're constantly having trouble with Odin, it's probably your cable causing issues, not Odin. Death to the stock cable!

I know the Odin thing has been covered several times here, but I wanted to know if the Samsung Windows installer for EB13 would restore the partition from MTD to BML if I wanted return to another ROM after trying CM7?

Sorry to rehash the subject but I didn't see any mention of this option & I was curious if it would work.
