Could you please add a mirror to r3-tinycore_2.10-desireroot.iso ?

The download speed is killing me :|

I would guess 512MB would be enough for most apps etc. unless you plan on running vast numbers of apps and games.

512 MEGABYTES??? I've heard that 640 KILOBYTES should be enough for everyone :huh:

@Mklass, what's this "latest Radio" about ? You mean the software related to the analog FM tuner ? In what way is it better than the stock one in the generic HTC sens rom ?

No, It an update for the radio i.e. signal for your selected carrier and wifi I think... Its supposed to improve your reception..

After making goldcard, do we need to copy some files on in prior to rooting? And, after rooting, can we use another ordinary SD card? I have 512MB goldacard, but I want to use 4GB card with the device....

tnx

  • Install a load of dumb games and not get any 'out of memory' messages.
  • Feel smug
  • Run Titanium Back-up
  • Run wifi teather

err that's about it :huh:

is Titanium backup working? (i didn't think it was? *shrug*)

right since we cant flash a new recovery image... does this essentially mean if anything happened to phone and i wanted/needed generic stock back (what it came with) i could simply hard reset and id be back to generic stock?

(im a complete noob to android) or how it works

I'm going to attempt this but before I try...

If I didn't correctly make the goldcard will this brick my phone?

also is there a way to tell if the Goldcard has worked,before trying?

thanks in advance

Hi Paul:

following:

" When you have done so, you’ll see a file called ‘recovery-linux.sh’ or ‘recovery-mac.sh’. Run the one appropriate to your operating system and the screen of your device should change to display the green recovery image menu."

That is where I am stuck... Thanks.
