Ok, so please don't flame me for asking this question...I'm coming from a Thunderbolt!!I don't have to do any special root process to my phone before I flash a ROM using Odin?
Gummycharged is only distributed as a CWM (Clockwork Mod) update image. What you will have to do is first flash CWM onto your phone (using Odin) and then, once you reboot into recovery, you can flash GBE.Ok, but when I download a ROM, like say Gummycharged, it's a zip file. Do I have to change the file name to .md5 or .tar? I have PDA checked (and nothing else) but it doesn't recignize the ROM on my desktop...
Sounds like you hit the famed bootloop in GBE.Ok...so now I flashed CWM via Odin...went into clockwork and did a backup...flashed Gummy said it was ok...now I'm stuck at the Samsung screen...
Thanks for this...what ROM do you recommend...am thinking about trying Humble 5.0 RC2 Gingerbread...Sounds like you hit the famed bootloop in GBE.
If you are having issues with the Samsung boot loop please flash this in odin, wipe data, then install GBE 2.0 again.
CWM 126.96.36.199 Voodoo
Hot boot fix GBE 2.1 (UPDATE FROM 2.0 zip)
GummyCharged GBE 2.1
(Personally, I have never liked GBE. I have hit too many issues and bugs with it on my device. Just my 2 cents though).
Humble 5.0 is an awesome ROM. Very lean and fast. I ran it for awhile and had zero issues with it. Danalo still has some cleanup work to do, BUT, he provides both an Odin package and a CWM package.Thanks for this...what ROM do you recommend...am thinking about trying Humble 5.0 RC2 Gingerbread...
Oh, and can I still use ROM manager to make a backup?
