Epic Touch Blog: Temporary Stock FF18 from emmc

Utility for CM9 Epic Touch
This is a temporary ROM that boots Samsung's Ice Cream Sandwich FF18 firmware entirely from emmc without making any changes to the ROM currently installed on your phone. When you reboot, you return to recovery where you can re-flash the ROM to return to CM9. This temporary ROM is useful for several purposes.
  • Update Profile
  • Update PRL
  • Sprint Activation
  • Dial codes and diagnostic mode
QBKing77's video is on the EL29 temp boot but instructions should be almost exactly the same except just use the included kernel/recovery that comes with the CM9 rom instead of the directbootCWM kernel!

Thanks to nubecoder, chris41g, noobnl and mkasick for making this possible!

I've tried this twice today, downloaded all files, checked md5's, unzipped folder, copied files and folder to Internal sdcard, followed Qbking77's video to the "T" and just getting a reboot to CMR 5.0.2.7, never to the temp ROM.
I'm currently on AOSP JellyBean, was just trying to get GPS fixed; came from BlueKuban.
Gotta run out, will re-do the whole thing tonight, again.... Third time is a charm?

AFAIK, sbrissen's kernel doesn't have kexec support.

Would the other, older version (EL29) work with AOSP?

Any advantage to using this ff18 temp rom versus the older el29 version?

Edit: if I use the older direct boot cmw and el29 temp rom, then I can use it on both cm9 and jb/cm10?
