    trierd to do a rom.tz install, and it did nothing

    i was going to install the smoked glass rom before i found all the probs with it. i did an 'advanced backup', then i did 'install from sd card'. It said that it was installing, but apparantly i was supposed to get some menu of features that i wanted. All i got at the end was a period and it said install done. i then rebooted and it has the same rom that i had on it before.
    what am i missing.........

    you need to choose what ROM you want to use to do the install. you prolly reinstalled the update.zip file still on your memory card

    EDIT: Reread through the directions on AdamZs thread and hopefully you'll see where you went wrong

    is it possible to install the update.zip from choosing a rom from the sdcard?

    if you dont choose "smokedglassv501rom" or whatever one you downloaded when in the "choose rom" section then it will just reinstall the update.zip

    The update.zip on the root of your sdcard should be what your trying to install ... the old one has no purpose.

    yea i never touched the update.zip. i just installed the rom.tgz and it pretended like it was installing, but never did. if i was actually installing BB it would have said things in the prompt like..'getting rid of bugs', or 'thanks for using bugless beast' or somethin like that. it didn't say anything of the sort
