Just flash the Rom bud, you don't have to do any updating, the Rom will update you to the version of android that it runs

Is there any way to develop a Rom without using kitchen...... As kitchen has proven unhelpful..... I am using Samsung Galaxy S advance..

Also is it possible to create a rom using OFFICIAL JB rom provided by Samsung? (it is in md5 format)

A guide would be helpful

Sorry for the noobish question......and thanks in advance

Yes it's possible without kitchen. The easiest way to develop a Rom is to look for a stock deodexed version of the official for a base. You'll want an apk tool, I prefer to use team rejectz quick fix. There are a ton of guides on how to create a Rom, a quick search will turn up a few. Just pick the one that's easiest to follow for you:beer:

So any stock deodexed rom can be used as a base?

What about when I wanna port a rom? For eg. i wanna port a rom from SGS2 which has the similar resolution as SGSA but different chip.... SGSA has novathor......whereas SGS2 has exynos....


So which OS is good for building a rom without kitchend? is that what they call building from source? Can you provide me a link to the team rejectz quick fix?


LAST QUESTION: What is an AOSP rom and Can a STOCK DEODEXED ROM BE USED AS A BASE ROM WHEN CREATING A ROM AND PORTING A ROM?


Thanx in advance bro.....I know it is a lot of questions.....

Info 2 HELP... How to delete failed OTA update files??? (Software update problems)...
Hi,

Hope this is the right section and that someone can help. (I have tried searching but no joy!)

I have a Samsung Galaxy ACE (GT-S5830i) which I have rooted but I am still on the stock rom/gingerbread 2.3.6

Today my phone said an update is available, so I connected to WiFi and downloaded the 30.14mb update, the update fails to install and I have now found out from searching that you cannot do a software update OTA once you are rooted, D'oh!!

So I now want to know how do I get rid of the 30mb update that I downloaded from my internal storage?! Can I simply delete it from the appropriate file, if so what is the folder/file called? or is it not as simple that?

If this 30mb update that didn't work cannot be simply deleted using my file manager app, then should I unroot my phone, and then try and update OTA again? and then root my phone once more? Would that work?!

Thanks for your help, this has really annoyed me and in hindsight I wouldn't have bothered to do the software update if I had known rooted phones cant update!!! And its also very frustrating that my internal storage has now got 30mb less space than before because I downloaded this update. I really hope its just a case of finding it and deleting it!

Thanks again,
James

Thanx in advance bro.....I know it is a lot of questions.....

AOSP roms or CM roms are to be compiled from sources. When you make a normal rom, you juat theme a deodexed version of stock rom.

To port a rom based on CM/AOSP from other device to yours, you will need to take a precompiled CM/AOSP for your device as a base. You can theme on any os, but to compile you'll have to use either linux or iOS.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Hi,
I don't know why the ota update has not worked for you as I never had any problems updating with a rooted phone. It will not work if you have installed a custom recovery. As of now, I don't know where the update is stored and it can be deleted or not, you can flash a stock rom from odin, update the firmware to latest available and then root it again.

The update is held in /cache, wiping cache in recovery will delete it or you can manually delete it using a root explorer.. to stop the update message until your Rom dev updates your Rom you can modify your build.prop to reflect the new update... so for my phone, we just got am update to md4 from mb1, so I would look for every instance of mb1 in the build.prop and change it to md4... hope this helps
