Do I have to wipe fully if I am coming from a previous version of SB?
No, Formatting system, wiping dalvik, and cache should be sufficient. If you get Force Closes wipe fully.
My status bar is force closing, what do I do?
Go into clockwork mod, go under mounts and storage and format system
Why is my battery life so bad after flashing?
You just flashed it will get a lot better, go calibrate your battery.
When will when your next update come out?
Usually Sundays, please don't ask for ETAs.
I am getting hot reboots, what do I do?
Go into lockscreen settings, and change your lockscreen to rotary or ept.
Can I flash a different kernel?
Yes, most Epic Touch 4G Kernels should work.

How to extract an apk from a ROM/zip (you'll need a program like 7-zip, winrar, etc.)
[*]Download the ROM/zip that contains the desired apk(s)[*]Double click the zip and it will open in your default zip program[*]Navigate to system/app and drag the desired apk(s) to an easy to remember location.

How to remove a system apk w/Root Explorer (ROM Toolbox can also be used, but slightly different process):
[*]Open Root Explorer (or ROM Toolbox Root Browser) and navigate to system>app[*]Mount R/W (top right in Root Explorer, R/W is on by default in ROM Toolbox)[*]If this is a system app, long press existing apk and either move (if you want to keep it) or delete (if you don't care)[*]Hit OK and your free of the undesired app.
[*]CAUTION: make sure you research before randomly removing things or you are likely to bork something. A good list of items that have/can be removed successfully in naerok

How to install a system apk w/Root Explorer (ROM Toolbox can also be used, but slightly different process):

How to extract a bootanimation from a ROM (you'll need a program like 7-zip, winrar, etc.)
[*]Download the ROM/zip that contains the desired bootanimation.zip[*]Double click the zip and it will open in your default zip program[*]Navigate to system/media and drag the bootanimation to an easy to remember location. (I use Dropbox or Minus, which makes the apk available on my phone without any further desktop steps.)[*]If not using a cloud storage option, connect your phone to your desktop and copy bootanimation.zip to your SD[*]That's it, you now have the bootanimation zip on your phone and can proceed to the next tutorial for installing/replacing a bootanimation
How to replace/add a boot animation
[*]Download or extract a bootanimation.zip [*]Place the bootanimation.zip on root of your SD card (or use a cloud app i.e. Dropbox, Minus, Box, etc.)[*]Make a copy of the bootanimation and name it sanim.zip and move that to your SD card as well[*]Open a root manager app (I prefer Root Explorer) [*]Navigate to system/media[*]Select Mount R/W (top right in Root Explorer, on by defauly in ROM Toolbox) then either delete, or move existing bootanimation.zip and sanim.zip[*]Navigate back to sdcard, then copy or move bootanimation.zip to system/media and then repeat with sanim.zip
[*]Some people replace only the bootanimation.zip and others only the sanim.zip, but I find each of those methods seem to create issues if the kernel you are running does not support custom bootanimations by default. So I replace both zips and it has worked well on multiple ROMs/Kernels. If this doesn't work for you, try replacing each individually. One of the three methods will definitely work for your ROM/Kernel combo.[*]User 12MaNy
has created a thread
with several bootanimations available as well some methods for install[*]Boot animation sounds can be found/added at /system/etc/poweron.wav and /system/etc/1_Power_on.ogg (may be listed as /system/etc/poweron.bak and /system/etc/1_Power_on.bak if these have been "muted".)
How to hack custom bootanimation support (Via chris41g
[*]Rename /system/bin/samsungani to something else... (eg samsungani.old)[*]Rename /system/bin/bootanimation to /system/bin/samsungani[*]After that it will load whatever bootanimation is at /system/media/sanim.zip
How to add/restore/change bootanimation sounds (you'll need a program like 7-zip, winrar, etc.)
[*]Open the ROM zip that you want to run[*]Navigate to /system/etc/ and look for poweron and 1_Power_on[*]If they appear as poweron.wav and 1_Power_on.ogg you are good to go[*]If they appear as poweron.bak and 1_Power_on.bak you need to rename them as above[*]If they don't exist, you will need to add them to this location or replace them with similar sized sound files of your choice. Make sure to keep the filenames and formats as above
Stuck at a black screen, bootanimation, etc
No need to jump through all sorts of hoops. Simply download and flash Bubby's CWM Kernel
in Odin 1.85. Boot into Recovery and restore nandroid, re-flash StarBurst or flash another ROM of your choice.
*Assumes you were rooted to begin with as you are in this thread and have previously flashed the ROM.
