I reset my SF to it defaults it is not rooted. And I try to use recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.9-modaco-r2-blade.img in order to install Paul's r4 ROM but I got this error:

emo@debian-home:~/Android/fastboot$ ./fastboot-linux flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.9-modaco-r2-blade.img

sending 'recovery' (107 KB)... OKAY

writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: image is not a boot image)

Anyone have any idea?

Thanks !

Yep. You need to flash it with the boot img first, then reboot the phone. Then flash the clockwork img after and reboot again. Then use clockwork recovery to install the new rom as update.zip (with the update.zip file on your phone's microsd card).

Here I saw that I have the super user icon ( I am rooted)

I had a very similar error when I was trying to install clockwork from a cmd prompt, it was due to a typo in the command line :P

Battery life is always an issue with smartphones. I have 4 spare batteries for my Galaxy S! (I like to be on the safe side :D )

Hopefully, someone will bring out a replacement battery, or an extended battery for the SF. In the meantime, turn off things when you're not using them. This works on my SGS - when I go to bed on a full charge, with everything off, the battery only drops 2-3% overnight. If I leave wifi and sync on, it can drop by 15-20% overnight...sometimes more, depending on whether I get a lot of emails, etc overnight.

I am a fan of 2G ...my phone stays at 2G all the time ..when I need something more ...I just turn it one ..But I still miss my old Nokia E51...4-5 days without chargeing

By the way one stupid question ..in this release ..when I till my phone on the left when I am on the main menu ...the menu stay in normal position and doesn't change

( but when I write message or search the Market...it is working fine..) did I missing something?
