Default [HOW-TO] put a custom rom on your slide!!!


There's the video, guys.. have fun and be careful!

written instructions are as follows:




OK! so you've decided to take on the menial task of installing a custom rom, to make your mytouch... well for lack of a better term, YOURS! If you've had a G1 or a Mytouch 3g in the past, as I have, then the process is much the same..

Step 1
Download your rom from the website to your computer *durrrrrr* also make sure your device is in normal operating mode, and also download the update.zip for clockwork recovery if you dont already have it from HERE

Step 2
Copy the rom and update.zip for clockwork from your computer to your phone's SD card root directory, also known as /sdcard

Step 3
Power off phone

Step 4
Power onto Fastboot mode with Volume Down button and Power

Step 5
Get into recovery mode by pressing volume down once fastboot loads, and then power to select

Step 6
Once in recovery basic mode, where you see the triangle with red exclamation, hold volume up and press power again

Step 7
While in recovery mode, hit volume down to get to apply update.zip which will put you in clockwork recovery as long as the update.zip for clockwork recovery is on your sd card

Step 8
After applying your update.zip, you're going to scroll down to install zip from sd card using volume down button and then power to select

Step 9
Once again, go to install zip from sdcard and press power

Step 10
Select your zip in the menu, then press power

Step 11
Wait for zip to install and hope to hell the zip is signed correctly and not damaged :P

Step 12
After zip installs, back out to main menu and reboot phone!

Step 13
Wait for Rom to load 100%.. WATCH YOUR LOGCAT TO VERIFY NO BOOTLOOPS!!!

Done!!

If you download "QuickBoot" from the market you can boot directly to "Recovery" bypassing the bootloader. :)

If i helped in any capacity, hit that THANKS button

I'm assuming this is a tutorial for future rom releases, correct?

I love the legend ROM but I needed the keyboard one night so I switched to slidemeroot2.

Any chance for Keyboard lights coming?
Also, couldn't load titanium backup in the legend. Any suggestions there?

to get titanium to load right, you have to install a different superuser.apk than the one that's stock. i dunno why exactly. also, legend is a BETA so it'll be updated soon by eugene, it is by no means a final version

Hate to state the obvious, but you should mention that this requires your MT3G Slide to be rooted... you know peeps will come out the wood works asking "why cant I do this!"
