  1. Btw, for OTG with the Blade you would need a special Y-shaped USB cable and a power supply anyway, because the phone doesn't give enough power to most USB devices.

    Exactly like on my SGS 1, you can easily buy Y-shaped USB cable on eBay or Dealextreme...also, there's no problem to buy an USB charger and you're good to go ;)

    Which one of the two cables below are you guys talking about? Or is it something else?

  2. Couldn't find anywhere....

    What's the difference between UG802 and UG808?

    Both seem to be based on Cortex A9 RK3066, with 1GB DDR3 & 4GB Nand Flash

    Edit: I think I found it

    UG808 has

    • 2 x Wifi antennas
    • 2 x cooling plates
    • CPU is clocked at 1.6Ghz
    • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
    • Retail price is 65 USD


  3. A feature I wanted badly on the stock FM radio was, to be able to output audio through the speakers. The stock FM radio does have a speaker icon, but clicking that doesn't do anything. Then I found another brand phone which had the stock FM radio, in which the speaker icon actually worked (i.e. audio was output through the speakers).

    So I extracted the FM radio apk from that phone, uninstalled the stock FM radio in my blade and tried it to install the extracted apk in my blade. However that apk, doesn't install. It says "Application not installed". Why is it not installing? Below is the link to the extracted apk.

  4. Thanks a lot man.

    Installed Moldovan Mile-High-Mountain-Pie RLS9 and Undervolt kernel, successfully :). Phone running a lot smoother, and Angry Birds not hanging like it used to do before.

    I wiped everything from the phone before installing the ROM.......I mean whatever could be wiped/formatted using Clockwork.

    Now I am not sure if the ROM created an sd-ext. How do I check that? I can transfer apps from internal memory to SD card from Application Settings, if that information helps.

    One more issue I am facing. I cannot mount the SD card when I connect via USB. Even if I select mount SD card, all I can see is the drive icon & letter in Windows explorer. If I try to open it, it says "please insert drive....."

    Only if I go into Clockwork and select mount SD card, then I can open the drive in Windows explorer.

    Any idea about this issue?


  5. You should wipe sd ext, system, boot too. You should find it on Mounts and storage.

  6. Yes you are. To install undervolt kernel boot to recovery. Install zip from sdcard > Choose zip from sdcard and go to your kernel zip and select yes. Done. Your phone is rooted and has recovery menu which will be used for flashing other roms later. It is called Clockworkmod recovery and has loads of guides how to use it.

    Thanks a lot.

    Just to make sure......... "boot into recovery" means power on with volume - key pressed.......right?


  7. To get out of ftm just pull the battery out. Yes to backup the sd, just copy everything to pc. You'll have to do it after tpt. As I said tpt does not touch sd card. When you partition it it will get wiped.

    Ok. Took the battery out. Everything is working fine. Got a bit tensed :(

    I have got some confidence now to go ahead with the upgrade. So I am going to do the following:

    Step #1. Copy & Paste all data from SD card to PC

    Step #2. Delete all data in the SD card.

    Step #3. Follow the TPT instructions part of the tutorial here down to a T

    Step #4. Install the Undervolt-Kernel

    Step #5. Partition the SD card to create sd-ext

    Step #6. Copy & Paste all data from PC back to SD card.

    Am I right?

    And how do I install the Undervolt-Kernel?


  8. I don't know how to get out of that "FTM" screen. None of the keys are responding. Do I take out the battery?

    You dont have it. Backup anything you need and use the tpt. The tpt will install the new rom and a new recovery instead of FTM. And backup your whole sd as it will be formatted.

    Backup.......you mean do a simple copy & paste of all the contents of the SD card to the computer?

    In the custom recovery Vol+ is up Vol- is down. Home is ok. So when you flashed your rom turn the phone off. Hold vol- and turn it on. A weird menu should pop up. Go to advanced>partition sd card. Swap should be 64mb i think and the ext partition is any size you want. THIS WILL FORMAT THE SD.

    When do I carry out this step? Before installing the ROM via TPT or the TPT process will anyways automatically do it?


  9. Creating a backup is a must. It is safe if you check the md5 of the tpt before flashing and charge the battery to full.

    Thanks.

    What method would you suggest to create a full backup the easy way. All the backup programs I know create a backup on the SD card, but if the SD card is going to get formatted/erased or data is going to get corrupted on ROM installation, shouldn't I create a backup on my computer? If so, how?


  10. I couldn't find anything to call Gen2 an "upgrade" over Gen1. Nonetheless since you guys are unanimous in suggesting to "upgrade" to Gen2 I will go ahead and do it.

    The only thing that is scaring me are the scary things mentioned in the sticky about TPT method being unsafe and having a higher probability of bricking.

    And as I have read moldovan-mile-high-mountain-pie is the one with the best battery life.....isn't it? Or I need to install the addon called undervolt kernel to get good battery life in addition to moldovan-mile-high-mountain-pie?

    Also if I follow the TPT method, would I loose my data which is mostly contacts. Or should I create backup first?


  11. You can convert between them a few ways. You can use the TPT method in the thread I linked or you can use the windows flasher.

    Ok.

    But is it mandatory to convert it to Gen2 to install 2.3?

    The tutorial in the sticky here doesn't mention it to convert it to Gen2 to install Gingerbread. So it seems that it could be installed on Gen1as well. Is there any advantage in converting to Gen2? Please correct me if I am wrong.
