Edit: That's the EL26 + CWM thread. Some reason the XDA app didn't do the reply like I asked.

Sent from the ether.

thanks, for some reason the one touch odin method keeps making the sprint 4g boot animation to loop endlessly....even after I re-flashed.... I'll try the stockCWM-el26.tar.md5 file in regular odin. Ihope that works cause I'm out of options at this point and my phone will not boot

ok so the 4g sprint screen keeps looping, even after using regular odin and the stockCWM-el26.tar.md5 file in the PDA slot. Everything passes fine (no errors), but both methods cause and endless sprint 4g boot loop. What are my options at this point?

Just from other people's experiences, would having 4G all the time for this ROM get around the same kind of battery life as say... an unmodded version of the E4GT? If so, I'm jumping on board this week!

Only thing I can think of would be to do a complete Odin - rom/kernel/ etc. I'm pretty new to the SG2 world though. Rooted a couple and just picked mine up the other day since my beloved Evo 3D was stolen. :/ I believe your 2 main choices would be:

or

Then you could Odin the CMW EL 26 kernel for CM9 and reflash the rom.

It sounds to me that you are flashing the stock EL26CWM kernel and trying to boot afterwards. If that's the case then that is your problem. Sorry if I'm reading it wrong but you absolutely cannot boot into any ICS ROM running a GB kernel.

You may want to try this method instead, it's worked for me every time I flash CM9 or CM7.
  • Make sure to have Calk's_FORMAT_ALL script on the SD along with the ROM and gapps package.
  • After flashing the stock EL26CWM kernel boot into recovery.
  • Flash Calk's_FORMAT_ALL script.
  • Flash the ROM.
  • Flash the gapps package.
  • Reboot.

Again I apologize if this is all common knowledge for you. It works perfectly for me every time though so I thought I would share.

finally got back to CM9w/GPS lock!!!!!

After numerous boot loops from auto root, one touch odin, and regular odin, I finally went back into recovery, factory wipe, then installed gunslinger, then install unammed ROM, then got a lock in google maps, power off, then followed the CM9 flash instructions again. Now I'm all good, but wasted 3 hours that I could have been working (which is my loss since I'm self-employed) However, now I have GPS on CM9, so I'm content. Thanks to everyone who helped I really appreciate it.

Has anyone experienced a problem with the Amazon app (regular amazon not appstore) When I run the app for more than a minute or two the screen freezes and the phone becomes totally unresponsive. Only option is to rip the battery. Anyone experience this? Any fix?

EL26 is a Gingerbread kernel. It won't boot CM9. Thats why your bootlooping. You're only flashing it for the custom recovery. Soon as you flash it, instead up booting up like normal, press and hold volume up and power and hold it until you see CWM.

Do we have the problem we had in gingerbread where 1x would disguise itself as 3g?

No, aosp ice scream sandwich correctly displays 1x vs 3g. You can often notice it drop to 1x right after you send an SMS or end a phone call.

This is a fantastic ROM and I'm experiencing no major issues with it.

It's fast, responsive, and has decent battery life on my device (similar to Caulk's ROM'S).

I had an issue with the market not syncing my purchases after a full wipe Install, but a reboot fixed it.

With that said, DO NOT FLASH A KERNEL OR MODEM FROM ONE OF CAULK'S ROM'S TO THIS ROM. YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE.

If you want the newest kernel, use the one posted by the OP a few posts back.

Thank you for all of the hard work. This is my new daily driver. I can't wait to get a proper cm9 kernel.
