In bad english : if i install this version, is it necessary to wipe when the new stable release is coming?

In french : je m'exprimerai mieux (si une personne me comprend...).

Je souhaite installer la pre-release (avec un "wipe" au préalable). Lorsque la version finale de Modaco sortira, devrai-je à nouveau faire un "wipe" du smartphone?

Thanks

Merci

Plus souvent qu'autrement, un "Wipe Dalvik Cache" suffit, sauf que le premier démarrage sera long pendant que la cache se reconstruit. Mais ça ne garanti rien. Personnellement, je préfère un "Full Wipe", surtout qu'il y aura eu beaucoup de changements. J'utilise Titanium Backup pour ramener mes apps. Une vraie farce.

Si tu vis en France, j'aimerais te poser une question en message personnel si tu permets?

There may be a short wait while the load balancing software determines the best kitchen to serve your ROM. The kitchen should appear below within 20 seconds.

Been using this since yesterday Paul, as usual the cream of the crop. Even though its not overclocked its just as responsive and the battery life is amazing :)

Do you think the EU release will get friendstream?

Bingo. Got LauncherPro on ok now.

All running SWEET! Only thing is a couple of FC's - htc.bgp and HTC Widget Download Manager. Are they because I don't have Sense/Rosie installed? How can I stop the phone running them?

I was running Cronos before this. Surprised to see no 3D Gallery in this version of 2.1...

Merci pour ta réponse.

Je ferai un full wipe.

Tu peux me contacter par PM mais j'habite en Belgique... donc je ne sais pas si cela t'intéresse...

Concernant Titanium Backup, il sauvegarde tout même de fichiers systèmes (des préférences utilisateurs). Or, j'ai toujours peur qu'en changeant de rom (que ce soit de Modaco à Modaco ou de Modaco à VillainRom par ex.), cela nuisse à la stabilité du système... peut-etre ai-je tord...

Ouais. J'avais des questions sur les services cellulaire en France, alors merci quand même!

Avec Titanium Backup, je ne fais que mes apps et les "Bookmarks". Parce que tu as raison, faire un "restore" de tout le système pourrais possiblement bousiller quelque chose. Je dois refaire mes préférences de système à chaque fois, mais je suis devenu expert. LOL! Ça me prend quelques minutes.

PS: J'utilise LauncherPro, qui n'est qu'une simple application pour Titanium Backup. Alors après le "restore", tous mes raccourcis sont revenus! Je dois refaire les widgets mais c'est tout.

Titanium Backup offre divers possibilités, sauvegarde des applis, applis + données et applis+données+configuration. Tant que tu reste sur une branche 2.1 tu n'auras pas de soucis. Par contre le passage d'une MCR 3.2 vers une MCR 4 m'a posé des soucis, j'ai du repartir à 0.

For non french-speaking people:

He's asking about the possibility of going from the current pre-release MCR to the upcoming final MCR 4 without wiping. AFAIK it shouldn't be necessary to do a full wipe and anyway Titanium Backup should help in this case.

The pre-release MCR is ODEX'd. The newer MCR's are de-ODEX'd. That probably means a full wipe.

Hey Paul, Brilliant Brilliant work! I've been snooping around here for months (always thought I had signed up, turned out I hadn't..) so 1st post.

Somewhere earlier in this thread, someone asked about the facebook contacts only syncing 100 contacts - I had this issue when I was using the villainrom 5. Basically, the fix is - (it can get pretty irritating) when you set up your phone and it says sign into your google account, *don't* then sync the facebook. What happens is 100 or so contacts from your google account get sync'd, and facebook seems to think that's all you have. So leave it until it's finished syncing, and then sync the facebook account. If you've already set up, go into your manage applications in settings, clear the data/cache for contacts storage and try again. I found I had to wait overnight for facebook to finally realise what was going on, but it could've just been the rom as it was based on a leak. Hope that helps!

Also - I had a question (I also found this in the older villainroms, so I'm guessing it's a 2.1 thing) in the people app, not all of my contacts are there, however they were all there in MCR 3.2 What I'm finding is, certain contacts don't appear in the people app, although when searching using the dialer they show up. Only if I allow facebook contacts in the view setting of the people app, do they re-appear. The problem is then it adds about 500 odd more people to my people list. It's not a major gripe, but it's slightly annoying as they're definitely google contacts and linked to facebook, as opposed to being purely facebook contacts. Anyone got any tips/experiencing the same issue?

Other than that - The rom is great! Will definitely be donating when I get off the dole....

Running r4 b3

- Full wipe

Getting issues with data. Sync takes an AGE. Also in the market it seems to have issues downloading apps. Normally I queue up loads to install and it wont be an issue. But on this it is either crashing the market (taking me back to home screen) or it does not show that the app is downloading untill much later.

Sorry but I need help (French)

Je suis sous MCR 3.2, et mon Recovery est Amon Ra hero v1.6.2.

J'essaie de passer en R4 build3, et lorsque j'essaie de passer en R4, avec un full wipe au préalable

Le fichier zip est trouvé, il essaie de l'ouvrir, et il m'affiche le message suivant:

E: Can't open /sdcard/r4-buil3-update-hero-modacocustomrom-signed-zip.

Bad

Installation aborted.

Est-ce que quelqu'un à un idée? Merci

Hey Paul,

I now have r4 b3 installed on my phone. For subsequent updates, will I have to wipe everything again and start over? Or is there some way to upgrade my phone and keep all my data intact the way it is now?

Cheers.

MCR's are designed to need no wipe between installs, but as I'm sure Paul would say if he got to this first: Try installing updates with no wipe, but if there are problems, wipe and try a fresh install. AND DON'T FORGET A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

The current release is more of a beta-quality release as I understand it, so don't be surprised if it turns out that you need to wipe.

@paul I would like to execute:

mount -o,rw,remount /system

ln -sf /system/lib/modules/`uname -r`/wlan.ko /system/lib/modules/wlan.ko

mount -o,ro,remount /system

at booting, what is the best place to put it in? an init.d script doesn't seem to work, better in init.rc/init.hero.rc ?
