For mtd based roms

This is to show you how to use rom manager to switch between roms on mtd based systems.

First step would be to install Rom Manager if its not already provided.
Then the next step is to click on Flash ClockworkMod Recovery.



Then after you click on that this will come up and since I am doing this for a Mesmerize I will click on Mesmerize (MTD). This is all the same for the Mesmerize, Fascinate, and Showcase.



On the Next screen it just says that our phones are not officially supported which is fine, we have manually installed ClockworkMod based recover so click Yes.



Next is a little confusing but just do as I say and you are all good. It is going to ask which version of ClockworkMod we have installed so you need to click on ClockworkMod3.x



The next Screen is just saying everything has been setup. You are now done.



If all is good on the Mesmerize or Showcase if you click on Download ROM you will see this:

Does it make a difference if you have cwm 4 installed or not?

One issue with Rom Manager is not being able to delete the cache without also deleting data, which I usually prefer to do if upgrading one version number of the same rom. Rom Manager apparently offers the choice of deleting Dalvic independently of data, but not the cache unless I'm missing something.

I used an app (Android Assistant) to clear the cache, then let ROM Manager do the Dalvik.

Ok sorry for asking this, and I don't know where else to put it. But what is an mtd based rom. I really wanna run different ROMS. I have a mesmerize, on firmware 2.2.1 and running EC10 I believe. I would really like to try heinz or CM7. Do I need to change Kernels or anything (my phone sys "kernal version 2.6 32.9") I am just really confused and didn't know where to put this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. I am going to try Heinz from here, but I am really curious about the MTD formats since it looks by the post that rom manager is working there. I got Rom Manager to do a backup of my rom, but I dont know how they got a Mesmerize (MTD) to appear on Rom Manager...that would be helpful to get to

CMW works on the Fascinate, but I can't seem to get the Premium features to work...i've uninstalled and reinstalled everything from the market and also used my Titanium BUs, premium doesn't show up....anyone else?

Did you select the 'Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" ? and follow the steps?
