It appears that there are still a lot of you that are going flash crazy and coming from other ROMs that are based on LK8. I will explain a few things about doing this. When you flash a ROM that is based on LK8, and then try to flash any ROM based on LJC, like MacksROM you are going to have the following errors;
Hands Free Activation on every boot, and possibly an error 1500 error, and you will lose your data connection......
Chameleon error upon every re boot.....this is a launcher error msg, as per Sprint...
Gyrene2083 ran several tests with Garwynn and Garwynn came out with this fix. We will never, I repeat never update to a leaked version of LK8. With that said for those who are coming from a ROM that is based on the LK8 leaked version use the fix above. Do not ask for help in this thread, regarding this issue, because the answer is in the link provided, and ask lk8 questions there.....Garwynn worked hard on that fix, and gyrene2083 ran multiple tests of this fix, and it's worked fine.....
Once you have done the above and all is working fine, then you can follow the directions below and enjoy MacksROM....
Directions to Install
1. Make sure you have the latest downloads of TWRP. (You can get this through GooManager from the playstore. Hit menu - Install OpenRecoveryScript )
2. Ensure you make a backup.
3. Reboot into TWRP
4. Nandroid Backup, Wipe Cache 3x's, Wipe Davlick Cache 3x's, Wipe System 3x's, [Unless your coming from a previous version of MacksRom] (Do a factory reset if your coming from another ROM)
I take no credit for this. I made a few adjustments to this so it works with our GN2 this came from Rompnit and Naddicts Morphology thread so please go over and THANK them for me and tell'm who sent you --> MORPHOLOGY

Hello everyone.....For those reading this, you may know my name, as Mack has mentioned me, as being helping him with something special for this ROM....Before I get into that, I wanted to take this time to say the following:
This is a special time of the year, a time when we count our blessings, and gather with friends and family and share old memories, and create new ones....Sometimes, we take for granted the little things that are really important in life....Although I have not been active, and again I haven't been because I have been extremely busy working on this for Mack and you guys, it doesn't mean that I haven't been following the thread.
I have seen requests, demands, complaints, but overall positive responses towards Macks hard work.....Please understand, and when you read this just sit back and let this marinate....WE, Mack and I, do this because we enjoy it, and we don't get paid at all, although I did see some donations thrown Macks way which is great for those that did. But even if you didn't getting thanks is just as good...
Now with that being said, let me get to the reason behind all the sentimental stuff... Mack is in the Hospital righrt now, he will be fine, but please keep him and his family in your prayers. I am not sure when he will come back on to post, it maybe tomorrow, it maybe next week, or next year. As I get more information from him, I will pass it along to you guys. I am not going to put the reasons why he is in the hospital because they are his business, but your prayers will be very much appreciated.....
Now regarding MacksROM, I am doing my best and working religiously on this project with hopes on getting something to you guys really soon. I will be checking in on the thread daily, I know there have been a few of you who have been answering throughout the months, and I appreciate it, and I know Mack does too. Please this is a community if you can help me continue by answering those that are new I would appreciate it...
Regarding the Swap phone call, I see that a lot of people would prefer that back in the ROM, so when I make my revisions, I will bake that back into the ROM. I have also seen a lot of issues with crashing, I'm not sure what is causing that, but I will look into it when I am done with what I am doing. Please bare with me, and please be patient......
Again Merry Christmas to everyone, and please say a prayer for Mack and his family......
I hope everyone has had a great X-Mas, and hopefully this New Year will bring us great goodies....I wanted to point a few things out for some folks who may not know or do know and just forget....
Mack is working on this in his Hospital Bed. He is recuperating from a serious surgery, and shouldn't be on his computer at all, however, he sneaks it against his doctors wishes....Guys, we still have bugs in the ROM, we will fix them when we can. I for one am getting a new phone, as my phone is screwed up. I have a lot in store for you guys, Mack's tested a bit of it and loved it....I can't do anything though until I get my phone back....
I just want to remind some of you the proper etiquette involved with ROMs. For noobs this will seem dumb, for senior members, you know the deal. Do not ask for an ETA of anything. That will truly piss off the dev, and if I'm even more protective of my boy Mack, it's only because I know what he's been through, and the road he has ahead of him. So just know that I will call you out if I see that. Again it's not because I'm being a [email protected]$$, it's only because, my boys health comes wayyyyyyy before this ROM. We work on this for free, this shouldn't have to be said, however sometimes, you get people that do forget that, and threads can get a bit demanding, I repeat again Mack is working on this in his hospital bed, and should be using all his energy recuperating, and I can't do much because my phone is hosed until I get my new one I'm basically stuck.....
I will try to update the OP today, if it hasn't been done so already by Mack, and again we have bugs and we are still working on things to fix them....
I would like to ask you guys one question though before I end this post. Would you guys prefer the incremental updates or just rather have major updates?
