    This is a TPT using TPT helper where I used the custom sizes from within the app to repartition. Its working in 4.4.2 at the moment although I
    have not had time to link any files. Its 220-10-210. Rather than putting up ready made versions, I would prefer to instal from within
    the TPT Helper myself and creating your own TPT,its better (for me anyway) to use this method rather than installing using Zips. I just think
    there's less chance of bricking your phone this way, unless someone wants to try the ready made zips on their 736e.

    When Antiseptic in post #26 used sytem update, to get the 250mb TPT, we did not have access to the amended TPT. The System Update used was on earlier roms, not sure which ones still had it after. gb. Hence the reason for going back to the fibblesan rom to take advantage of it, but now you can still go back to gb first, use amended TPT, reboot into cwm and choose your rom while the TPT updates to your own custom sizes.I have always used the start button with + held down (or is it minus, forgotton for now) then into CWM. Once you select your new rom(eg: 4.4.2) via soft buttons the update works, then when it starts you are open with the new rom and new TPT. The soft keys for the orange coloured menu is used once you have got into cwm, for choosing zips etc then rebooting. The Vivacity/Crescent has usually gone this route from thhe start. Different for SF11 users as they dont have the same button layout.

    In summary, these ready made zips posted above are good. (If they don't install for any reason you can use the System Update route). If they are not tailored for you, then refer to post #78 where you can make your own TPT's any size by dialling in your own sizes.By the way Dodgetimmy, if you are in contact with Amphorus, give him a big thumbs up from all of us. He was always on the right path, and his amended TPT cracked it for all of us. Albeit via a route through gingerbread! The Fibblesan r2 worked for me when none of the other roms did.

    According to Amphoras the image bin should be deleted after flashing, which is what I did. But if you go back to Fibblesan,s rom you will definately get the same result, by installing it first followed by tpt amended helper. One of the posts earlier from Antiseptic used a 250 system which was installed via system update using the fibblesan rom ( which I also did using the ready made tpt, but decided I would later go the custom route).

    Should I try 10mb for cache, or would there be no advantage?
    .......any hints on Bluetooth?

    TPT helper from Amphorus (five stars Amphorus, I should say) is working. Use the amended version in an earlier Dodgetimmy post above. Download this rom:
    I used this method, it may be different for you:
    Boot into recovery (I used cwm 4.0+.)
    Wipe data/Factory Rest
    Wipe Cache Partition
    Wipe Dalvik Cache
    Install fibblesans r2 zip from card
    Once back to this rom, I installed the amended TPT helper and used create own tpt, using 220/20/200.
    Powered off into recovery, where update started and installed Gbosh 4.4.2 and Gapps
    Checked storage after inserting Link2SD for the following:
    System 220mb (Used 212mb) free 8.24mb
    Cache 20mb (Used 1.21mb(Free 18.79mb)
    Internal 200mb(used 112mb)Free 87.59mb-includes any Link2SD install
    SD Card28.76gb-used 9.61gb
    2nd Partition (Ext3) Total 0.89gb Used 76.23mb-Free 8.24mb
    Cannot under any circumstances get Bluetooth working properly. It will not pair with my headphones (which have worked with every rom (just about) that I tried previously. Keeps saying Bluetooth share stopped or not working (although it did at one stage say that the pin etc would not work. Tried wiping cache, has not worked. Gbosh can you PLEASE help with this one? Thanks as always in advance.
    PS: I suspect that the Cache could be smaller than this, or would this cause problems?

    All ok except Bluetooth.
    I installed the TPT as follows: System: 250mb (used 212 Free:38.24) 15% Free
                                                   Cache:  40mb (Used 1.12 Free 38.79) 96% Free
                                                   Internal  150mb(Used 116mb Free 33.80) 22% Free
                                                   SD Card 28.76gb ( Used 9.54gb Free 19.22g) 66 % Free
                                                   SD Card 2nd Part ( 0.89gb Used Free 766 mb) 83% Free / Link2SD Partitioned as Ext but came up as Fat?
    I have reinstalled a lot of apps, so thats why the numbers above look pretty full.
    Reverted to Fibblesans stock rom (see Antiseptics posted link), then installed via System update. Then installed 4.2.2 KitKat then Gapps 4.4
    Seems slower than the 4.0.4 Molten from Gbosh but I could be wrong. Using CWM
    The Bluetooth is a massive downer for me, having come so far with this phone, as I use it with headphones every da for music. If I can't get a fix (any ideas anyone PLEASE?)
    I will probably revert back to 4.o4 Molten Motherboard from Gbosh (this guy is on fire!)which will be a big loss. Gbosh please step forward.
    Thanks again in advance.
    P:S I did not trim any apps as I do not know how.

    I've had this phone for 2 years 4 months now. Am currently upgrading to the Kitkat 4.2.2. rom. Seems a shame if you are right OuahhOuah, as this phone has come on a long journey. Unfortunately I am not very tech savy, so cannot contribute to development. I hope that Gbosh can push this phone to its very limits.
    Perhaps Marx was right after all, when he scorned ................."Capitalism and its built in obsolescence!"

    I still don't have any backlights at the bottom. They don't light or press. I downloaded CM9 Kernel Vivacity.zip and installed it last but no result. Is this the right one?
    Can someone point me to a direct link download please.
    Thanks in advance

    Can anyone tell me the status of Bluetooth at the moment? Originally I was able to turn it on, see my headset reconised as its original name, pair, but not connect. After reflashing the rom I cannot turn on Bluetooth at all. It stays off and settings shows bt, as 'unavailable'. I haven't been able to get it to work yet on this rom, is this the same for everyone else?..........as ever, maximum credit to Daz & Co. for this achievement.
