Awesome. Can I just flash this over my stock B885, and then restore a backup without worrying about changed partitions?

Mmmmm. From the Android System Recovery Screen <3e>

The message says E: signature verification failed.

Installation Aborted.

All bright ideas welcome.

Thanks

You should install it via ClockworkMod Recovery, worked for me. ;)

But ...I followed the instructions here....cwm used

Topic Nos. 3 & 4.

To the letter.

Twas backed up with Titanium.

Then wiped.

Then the package verification failure.

It was on the old Vodafone 882 - rooted + unlocked - its no great disaster - its all replacable - unless its bricked - in which case I'll yank the jailbroke 3G with the dodgy proximity sensor off Ebay pronto.

" E: signature verification failed." means you've either accidentally put signature verification on in ClockworkMod or you're on stock recovery.

Yes...I think you are right. I thought I'd done it proper.

Alas, it didn't go into CWM ...it went into Android Recovery mode... asking me for an Update from the SD card

Grrrr.

I''ll just do it again from scratch. Ta.

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

Installed using clockwork. No reset, no wipe, all fine.

I took a backup using titanium to be sure, but the ROM installed without issue.

It completed in about a minute.

Restart from Clockwork all fine Existing apps and settings not effected (885 was on the Phone)

Another great ROM from Paul :)

No wipe, so it's just a case of flashing the rom (zip) from the sdcard?

I am unfamiliar with the MCR build. I'm guessing this is Paul's custom work, ready for a custom rom release?

Thanks.

Well its on and seems to work fine. from 882 to 888.

My problem was getting Clockwork Mod installed.

I had to follow this link

http://dottech.org/tipsntricks/21534/how-to-install-adb-and-fastboot-on-your-windows-computer-for-use-with-your-android-phone/

to push clockwork mod across to G300 using the .bat file downloaded from here

Doesn't seem to have got rid of the Vodafone apps. guff tho'.

I installed this yesterday and it seems very nice and smooth. Upgraded from B885 with no issues using CWM, just wiped dalvik and all my old stuff carried over.

I'd would be great to know if going from stock B888 to Paul's would re-partition the phone. That way we could downgrade to the stock Voda rom's for warranty purposes, if needed.

Thanks

at the risk of a clip round the ear. The ROM she says ' U8815V100R001C185B888'

The assorted splash screens have such unwanted branded entertainment as 'Texas Hold'em'; 'Updates' , 'Discover', 'UNO trial', 'My Web' etc. etc.

Have I done something daft ? Is this always there ?

I don't recall asking Titanium to re-install these apps.

Did you do a full wipe in CWM before running the .zip?
