I'm very new to rooting and all of this, so thanks in advance for the assistance on this subject. I rooted last night and installed the 2.3.2 ROM from Peter Alfonso through ROM Manager, found in link below. It's a great ROM!
In that, he mentions the 1ghz by Slayher kernal, but I can't find installation instructions for the kernal. How do I go about this? Also, will I have to reinstall 2.3.2 after I install the kernal? I am using a Motorola Droid 1. Again, thank you for your assistance.
Assuming you are using Clockwork Recovery:
Installation Instructions [ClockWork]
1) Download the kernel of your choice and place somewhere on your SD Card
2) Reboot into ClockWork recovery
3) Scroll down and select “Nandroid”
4) Select “Backup”
5) After backup is complete
(items 6 & 7 deleted as they weren't relevant)
8) Select “Install zip from sdcard” 9) select “Choose Zip from sdcard”
10) Navigate to where you placed the kernel and select it
11) On the Confirm Install screen scroll down and select “Yes”
12) Your kernel will be installed
13) Reboot from the main screen of ClockWork Recovery
The first thing about Clockwork is trying to get Rom Manager to flash a good copy onto your phone. Here is a fool proof method to determine whether you have a good copy before trying to reboot into it. Begin by scrolling down and flashing the alternative recovery – SpRecovery. After it successfully loads, scroll up and flash Clockwork. If it takes longer than 3-5 seconds to get the popup telling you the install was successful, reflash it over and over until you do get that popup in 3-5 seconds. Once that happens, you have a good install.
Once you have rebooted into Clockwork and are navigating through its menu, if at any time it hesitates that means it is about to reboot automatically. When Clockwork does reboot and the screen goes dark, immediately press and hold the X key until the phone reboots back into Clockwork. Clockwork will now be totally stable until you finish.
If the first thing you do with Clockwork, during any particular session, is to try and make a Nandroid backup and you get an error message (without regard to what it says), you should just wait a few seconds and not do anything. That is because Clockwork is about to reboot the phone. As stated above, as soon as the screen goes dark, press and hold the X key until the phone reboots back into Clockwork. Then start over and Clockwork will work as it was intended for the rest of the session.
Also, you should know that there is a new recovery available now - RZR. It is based on SPR. I have been using it for some time now and it is terrific. It is stable and more fully functioned than either SpRecovery or Clockwork. Here’s a link to the thread (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rai...ging-more.html). You download the zip, put it on the root of the sdcard and then install it with Clockwork or SPR.
How do I know if I have ClockWork already? If I don't have it, how do I install it?
How did you install the new custom rom? I assumed you used Rom Manager (the app).
