Default [A] Rom Manager ******WARNING READ THIS BEFORE******

Dear People,

Stop using Rom Manager!!!!!!!. I've read several posts over the last few days about people ****ing up their phone using ROM MANAGER. This piece of software does NOT work for our phones, so do us ALL a favor and STOP using it so we can stop posting:"First, you shouldn't have used Rom Manager" in your thread aptly named "Is my SGSII Bricked?". Thanks in advance boys and gals


WITH LOVE,

Jthatch12

If only it were this easy...the problem is that the people who use ROM manager are typically those who don't take time to do their research or read the forums before rooting (if they did, they would know better), so they probably won't see your much-needed warning until they brick their phones and come here for help...(sigh)

Agreed. Clockwork dev needs a big notice regarding this device on the market, also.

It is really getting ridiculous how many people post here after flashing their phone with ROM manager. I think they are outnumbering people from galaxys2root (it is a close competition). Isn't there a way do contact the dev of rom manager and have him make the app not run on the i777? At the very least he could post some kind of warning on the app.
