Hello,

I am running a stock ICS DDLPA (4.0.3)

usually, when I try a new Rom, because of the risk to brick it, I do this :
I downgrade to GB 2.3.6 rooted rom ( I use this : Rooted_Stock_Odex_N7000XXLC1_FRANCE.rar), using Odin 1.85 on PC.
I reboot in recovery, wipe Cache, Data.
install the new ROM (ICS ROM for example) using the install from zip in recovery mode.
I reboot.

is it still the case for this ROM ?
Do I make any mistake in the process ?

thanks
Olivier

Anti's point on init.d files is quite valid. Many kernels have their own init.d scripts and it makes sense to delete the previous when flashing a new kernel. However the kernel being flashed also should be retaining its init.d files from the ROM it has been extracted from.

In the attached file, i modified the original Jbroid script to delete ALL previous init.d scripts with delete_recursive.

However I dont agree with the question on utility of Jbroid script itself.
It automates all the wipes and using it a kernel can be flashed within 10secs.

Basically you
1)Flash Jbroid script.
2)Flash Kernel.

Easy peasy.

Flashing Procedure.
Hi All,

I took the steps of trying various flashing methods from ICS to Paranoid JB. Here are my findings:

NOTE: All steps included a Full Wipe AFTER flashing Abyss Kernel and restarting Recovery.

Stock ICS with Full Root:
  1. Used CWM to install Abyss v4.2 Kernel, restarted Recovery then flashed Paranoid ICS v0.5.
  2. After System Reboot I then went back to Recovery and flashed Abyss v4.2 Kernel, restarted Recovery and then flashed Paranoid JB v1.1 and Google Apps.
  3. All worked without issues.

Stock ICS with Full Root:
  1. Used CWM to install Abyss v4.2 Kernel, restarted Recovery then flashed Paranoid JB v1.1 and Google Apps.
  2. Google Apps applications were missing and camera was missing.
  3. Had major issues with loading time of applications with a few FC's
  4. Tried restarts and re-installs several times to no avail.

AOSP/AOKP ROM with Full Root:
  1. Used CWM to install Abyss v4.2 Kernel, restarted Recovery then flashed Paranoid JB v1.1 and Google Apps.
  2. All worked without issues.

The above should resolve a number of questions I constantly see appearing on this thread. I am sure that most would agree that if you have to ask the safest way to flash this ROM, you have not read the posts in this thread and therefore should not be attempting to flash it.

If you are still unsure and want a breakdown of each and every step please message me and I will be happy to email the directions.

Surely the reason the middle run didn't work (stock ICS) was that you missed the full wipe step

EDIT: my bad, misread that bit at the top!
