The bootoader and root steps will definitely work paul has confirmed in his thread that superboot will work on LTE devices. Im not sure if CWM has been tested on an LTE device but if it doesnt work the stock Recovery image can easily be flashed via fastboot. Once you have CWM then you just need to find a Rom that will work on LTE devices as im not sure if the Roms are different.Are you completely sure this will work with the LTE version? Being that it comes out tomorrow, I have yet to get mine. I also think it may be a christmas present.....nonetheless, I don't know if Verizon has made any changes to the bootloader or not. Have I anything to worry about or am I just being paranoid?
To copy the rom to your Internal Storage you need to reboot your phone into Android, then connect the usb cable and copy it across using your file manager. Then you can reboot into CWM and flash the Rom.
I will add this to the FAQ as I build it up:Awesome thread!
Quick Q though, if im currently using a custom ROM, when i use the advanced restore option in CWM, can someone quickly describe what each option will do to my phone?
Whats will happen if im running custom ROM and i select restore boot? restore system? restore data? restore cache? restore sd-ext?
Thanks in advance!
Not so sure how a stock image is affected. At worst case you will still get the update notification but the install will fail. As long as you have the latest build on your phone then you wont get any notification so you could easily flash the latest CWM Stock image as it is made available.Thank you sir for taking the time to write this. Just went through the process successfully to flash a stock Google rom to remove the Samsung one from my phone as I want to get the rom updates quicker via Google vs waiting for the Samsung port. However, to ensure I get the updates via OTA, do I have to unroot/ relock bootloader? Does it hurt anything leaving it as is or do we need to button down again.
Thanks in advance.
There is an auto recovery restore system on stock android builds so when the phone is rebooted it restores the stock recovery image.
