For those few posting about random shutdowns, that is 99% most likely a hardware issue. My cappy ran flawlessly for 2 months before I started getting random shutdowns while the phone was sleeping. As soon as I started noticing them it didnt take long before it was happening every time I left my phone alone for a few hours. I called ATT and it is a known issue for every cappy made before Nov '10. Call and get a replacement and hope the refurb you get doesnt have the same issue as most likely it will have been made before nov. Dont have the link but,there is a large thread about this very issue. So far the new cappy I got last week is running fine.
Since I flashed the first time(pheonix 1.5) using super one click, rooting the phone and then following all the steps through all the different colored CWR menus. I was happy with the phone and getting around ATT restrictions and bloat.
SO, when 2.0 came out I wanted to flash that. Instead of reinstalling stock ROM (fearing that bricking during that process was more probable), I just did a three button reboot where a "RED" menu comes up in CWR. This menu does not show reinstall applications and I did not disable voodoo lagfix (whatever the heck that is). I had already moved my new rom's zip file to the internal SD card using mass Storage USB mode and so proceeded to install the ROM using the RED menu. Well, this all seems to have worked and now I've just done it again with 3.0 (seemingly successfully).
Can anyone tell me what risks I'm taking or what problems I'm causing myself by doing what I'm doing?
I dont know the significance of lagfix disabling or what the blue/green/red menu on CWR mean. I dont know why ODIN is necessary to load back in a stock rom. I do understand the concept of rooting to allow permission for applications to access low level functions.
Maybe there's a write up on CWR I didn't read yet? Thanks for the hand holding..
