I flashed the yesterday's prebake (only 1 file) and it works great but now there's 3 prebake versions. So my questions are the following:
1. What's different from yesterday's and today's STOCK??? I really mean stock (which should be similar to yesterday's prebake)
2. If they're different (improvements), can I flash the 2 part stock on top of my current ROM without wipe???
That's all. I hope you can answer me.
I wish I had the 9 dollars to get the AdFree membership but in Venezuela we have currency exchange control (or whatever it's called) and we only have 400$ per year we can spend on internet shopping, which I did few moths ago. Blame my president.
Yes, beware of flashing anything on the front USB ports.
The first day I got my 2x I ran LG software update and the phone never booted after the flash. I had to download the ROM via SmartFlash (the longest waiting I ever had because I thought I bricked my phone for good) and then I used the ports on the back. Then, my phone lived!
Well, first, make sure you're using bootcamp natively and not through a VM like Parallels o VMware because it's risky as hell.
Second, when you plug the phone while holding Vol- wait a copuple of seconds before releasing the Vol- key. Then, when Smartflash detects the phone, don't click start right away and wait about 4 or 5 seconds. Then the flashing process will go without problems.
If you still get timeout error, click start again WITHOUT disconnecting the phone and restarting the proceess again.
I faced myself that timeout error before and it worked after the retry.
I also don't know why Paul advises to remove the battery before the flash. I just turn the phone off and wait until the touch buttons go off and then press Vol- and insert the USB cable until the "Software upgrade" message appears. Using that procedure I have used Smartflash to flash many BB/roms and my O2X is still alive.
