This is the EC10 update for the Mesmerize. There is no difference between this one and the official update from the USCC homepage other than I rebuilt this one to work with Odin, instead of Kies.

To use these files, flash in Odin.


#####IF YOU HAVE VOODOO ENABLED, DISABLE LAGFIX BEFORE YOU USE ODIN#####



1. Pull your phone battery
2. Start Odin
3. Click PIT and select the .pit file from the download
4. Check the PDA box, Click PDA and select the .tar.md5 file from the download
5. Plug your phone into the USB port and hold volume down
-your phone should go into download mode
6.Verify that Odin sees your phone.
-if not, try another USB port
7. Click Start

It will look similar to this. -- and when i say similar, I mean 'not exactly like'

Quick question, does this rom require a factory reset/will I lose everything if I flash the rom?

I always backup anyway, just wondering if I should flash this now or wait till I get home and can access my titanium backups.

Also, do I need to do the odin flash first (like when going to the 2.2 PnP's) or can I just flash the rom on it's own?

Gotta use odin first just like the other builds, then flash the custom rom/kernel package.


Thanks phidelt, as always you are the man and very much appreciated!

I'm thinking that the AOSP part is the kernel (or at least part of it) and it's voodoo and faster than our previous one - but I could be way off. I'm about to find out just getting the files downloaded. :)

Phidelt would have to advise on whether EA11 kernel would work but I would imagine it would considering it did with the last two and this is just closer to being polished off, no major changes.

    why is the email app removed from the ROM ?
    i am a bit perplexed why someone would remove it....

    if i wanted it removed dont you think that is what the PnP rom is for?

    Well, when I built the ROM, I was specifically thinking of you and your wants/needs/desires. Then I took all of that out.

    Really man, it's a custom ROM. It's built the way I wanted it to be built. It also has AOSP parts to it. I'm sure you're probably perplexed by that also. Why would someone add AOSP parts to a custom ROM? Isn't that what the AOSP ROM is for?

    Just like when you first came here and couldn't figure out how to use the Pick-n-Pack so I built you your own custom ROM.A couple versions, as I recall. Since then I have refined the process so everything is flashable. It's built on the PnP frame. PnP doesn't have the bloatware 'email', just gmail. All of the addon packs work with the Combo ROM. You can flash anything back to it you want.

    If you don't like the ROM, flash another one. Or better yet, contribute to the community by building one of your own. When I started here, I was the only Mesmerize user that built anything for the Mesmerize and then the Showcase. You were here then. Now we have a few more people helping out and contributing. You're still here, and still complaining about what is out and how we do the things we do. I'm perplexed as to why you are still around if you don't like what we do AND you don't/can't/won't contribute.

    thought he said "Neither are rooted or deodexed"

    Keep reading ;)

    Neither are rooted or deodexed. That's what the ROM is for.

    Ooops! I forgot to delete that post!

    I got it all figured out. Kinda.

    I never could understand the recovery aspect of this whole "hacking" my Mes until I finally read a thread mentioning the 3 finger method. THEN it all clicked! Blue recovery (blue text) and red recovery (red text). Yada, Yada, Yada...

    As of my end results, I wanted to get a custom kernel, ROM, theme, mod, and maybe a radio (I need to learn more about those first).

    What I still don't understand is how some of the custom kernels work, finding that perfect theme (I'm almost debating whether I should learn how to make a theme), and radios.

    I just got my first smartphone (droid, mes, whatever you wanna call it) about a month ago and I've been trying to learn the insides and outs of my phone for probably 2 weeks now.

    EDIT: This is slighly unclear to me, but can I only use TW Kernels? or can I use AOSP Kernels? The thread says I would want to use the TW Kernels.

    Believe it or not, as the guy who wrote the Mesmerize Glossary (see signature), I've only had my Mes for maybe a couple months or so---and like you, this is not only my first Android device, but my first smartphone altogether. XD LOTS of reading later, here I am. XD

    Shameless self-promotion aside, have a glance at the glossary; it should explain what you need. Note that AOSP kernels can only go with AOSP-based ROMs, and TouchWiz kernels can only go with TouchWiz ROMs, and ne'er the twain shall meet, as it were. So pretty much just pick the ROM you want to use, look to see whether it's TouchWiz or AOSP-based, and then get a kernel that corresponds. Some ROMs even bundle an appropriate kernel already, so make sure to read the full first post of the ROM you want.

    The rest should be in the Glossary.
