[Q] Is this how I install a ROM?
After finally getting a replacement dell streak i.e. 3 months of complaining. I want to flash it and I want a smooth process. So after looking around I’ve put together everything I have to do. I would like to know if what I’m doing is right. Important Notes: I am using Windows 7 64BIT… I am flashing DJ_Steve’s 1.6.1 Rom. I am currently on stock Froyo. My build number is 12821. For now baseband version is unknown (Can’t check untill I find charger). So this my plan to take list of steps-
1. Install Fastboot via-
Download Dell PC Suite and install it.
Remove and replace the battery.
Power the device on while holding the camera button
It will show a screen that says ‗Touch Calibration‘ and ‗Fastboot‘. Tap fastboot.
Learn to use Fastboot on CMD
Download SuperOneClick 1.5.5
Extract SuperOneClick on my hard drive
Put my Streak in USB debugging mode: Settings>Applications>Development>turn on USB Debugging
Plug my Streak into the computer – I will not mount the SD card
Right click on SuperOneClick.exe and run as administrator
Click "Root" and watch the progress and follow instructions.
3. Install Streakmod Recovery
Unzip and flash with: fastboot -i 0x413c flash recovery recovery.img
Reboot with: fastboot -i 0x413c reboot
Hold down the keys "volume up" and "volume down" simultaneously while rebooting.
Select "Software upgrade via Update.pkg on SD Card" in the menu
At the Dell Logo press the power button and you will be presented with the Recovery Menu
4. Install Rom (Streak Droid 1.6.1)
Place Zip file into Root of SD Card
Make a text file and type in the options
Save file under SDCard>install.txt
Boot into StreakMod
Select Update from Zip File > Select Zip File From SD Card > StreakDroid_1-6.Zip
Wait for installation.
These are steps I will take are they right?
Will I need to reroot after Rom has been installed?
Thank you for your time your help is appreachated!!
