Okay, I'm tired of seeing people not be able to get on the GB ext4 bandwagon where apps don't disappear. This guide is for you if you want a smooth, surefire way to get on GB.

NOTES
* The KC1 and KJ6 files contain bootloaders for the SGH-T959V. By downloading and flashing the files you agree that you will not hold me or anyone in Team Acid responsible if your device gets bricked. There are always risks when flashing custom firmware and ROMs onto your phone.
* As always, make a full backup of your SD card and phone.

FEATURES
* Root
* CWM + drhonk's custom KJ1 kernel preinstalled.
* Gets rid of the disappearing apps problem
* Gets rid of the missing SD card once you're booted into GB
* Gets rid of your bootloops
* Get a working GB ROM with ext4 support (includes Official KJ6 with drhonk's custom KJ1 + cwm kernel)
* All the files you need are included in this post
* Wipes out all the gremlins you had on your phone by putting the KC1 bootloaders, then the KJ6 bootloaders on your phone.

PREREQUISITES
1) Download all the files from the links on this post, and extract both .7z files and Odin v1.85 using 7-zip or a compatible program
2) Leave the phone's back cover off since you're gonna have to do a few battery pulls and you need access to the sd card
3) Format your sd card by hooking it up to your computer with an sd adapter or through mass storage mode using your phone and a USB cable.
FORMATTING ERASES EVERYTHING ON YOUR SD CARD. MAKE SURE YOU BACK IT UP ONTO YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE YOU DO THIS.
Follow this guide to format your sd card on Windows (this is on XP but the same steps can be taken on Vista or 7).
This guide is meant for using your sd card on a Wii, but the process is the same to get it working on the phone.
WATCH THE VIDEO ALL THE WAY TROUGH BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY OF THIS.

INSTRUCTIONS
1) After formatting the SD card with the steps above, put your favorite GB ROM, and install_busybox.zip onto the SD card
- 1a) You can restore any backup of your SD card you made at this point. Make sure you have at least 2GB free on the card though!
2) Put your phone into download mode
3) Open Odin on your computer
4) Load up Odin, and load the KC1 files, DON'T TOUCH ANY OTHER OPTIONS, leave them like they are even if Odin changes them!
- 4a) PIT: Sgs4g.pit
- 4b) PDA: pda.tar.md5
5) Flash and let the phone reboot. Once you see the T-Mo startup screen (the pink one), OR the CWM (red text) screen do a battery pull.
6) Put your phone back into download mode
7) Click reset in Odin, now load up the KJ6 files
- 7a) PDA: pda.tar.md5
- 7b) CSC: csc.tar.md5
8) Flash the files and let the phone reboot.
- 8a) The phone will go into standard recovery (blue and yellow letters, you might hear Linda) and then reboot itself once.
- 8b) The 2nd time you will see either the CWM red letter screen or the Galaxy S 4G white letters/pink splash screen and if you prefer you can let the phone boot all the way, do a battery pull.
9) Now unplug the USB cable, put the battery back in, hold vol + and -, then press power. You should boot into CWM (red letters, voodoo).
10) Go into the voodoo menu > enable lagfix and /system lagfix on
11) Flash the GB rom you put on your sd card
12) Flash the busybox_installer.zip
13) Reboot and hear Linda give her speech.
14) Welcome to GB with ext4!

It was all a blur. I followed your steps and all I remember was some cable and talking to the ruler of Asgard then their was a crazy battery pull then back to Asgard and then i had a one way conversation with some fembot named linda and it all ended with me having gingerbread.

Thanks for the help.

If you have Terminal Emulator from the market or know how to use ADB run
Code:
mount | grep ext4
If nothing comes out it's not enabled, if it's enabled you should get 3 lines saying /data, /cache, and /system.

You could always reboot into cwm and enable it from there.

Reflashing the custom KG4 kernel should fix it, but get back to me if you still have trouble.

Hey, First I want to say thanks for your and everyones work on this

I Followed instructions to the T . I used Stock Deodexed T959VUVKH2 [Root][CRT ON & off enabled Rom from WhitehawkX at the end of the instructions. Everything worked beautifully up until reboot . After reboot, I get Force Close when running Appz, Market link and various other appz are greyed out. I reinstalled Titanium Backup and restored my data/appz and restored contacts. I shutdown and rebooted and I got the problems.

Someone please help. I have searched forumz both rootwiki and xda-developers and google. I tried searching for samsung galaxy s 4g 2.3.4 , sgs4g kh2, etc...

I did see a solution pertaining to booting in CWM revovery and unmounting, but I cant even install my CWM Premium due to force close

thanks

The missing apps problem is caused by fault partitions. Try flashing the CSC file from the KH2 file, then you can try doing a factory reset. Try installing a few apps after that and reboot to see if they stick.

Andrew, is your sd card formatted/partitioned correctly?
