    Lithium to Sapphire 1.0

    I have heard many good things about Sapphire so I've decided to give it a try. I am coming from a Lithium build so I have a couple questions about the switch.

    1) I read that Sapphire is built differently than Cyanogen or Lithium....because of this, do I need to wipe data and cache?

    2) Is CompCache automatically enabled or do I need to do something in order to enable it?

    3) Very noob-like question, but I'm use to installing ROM's through the ROM manager. I'm going to give Incognito a try first, but I like the look of Elegant Steel so I may switch. Elegant Steel isn't offered through ROM manager so I downloaded it and placed it on my phone. Just to verify...if I come from Incognito, I can just install through ROM manager (from SD card) without wiping data and cache?

    Thanks for any and all help!

    1) Yes
    2) Turn it on under Menu, Settings, Gem Settings, Performance
    3) If you want to switch themes, it's recommended you re-install the un-themed version of Sapphire 1.0 first, wipe cache only then apply the other theme. That all can be done through recovery.

    There's more info at the wiki for 1.0 also - releases:sapphire-1.0.0 [CVPCS Sapphire Wiki]

    And wait to install the theme till after booting the rom and gapps. Then after letting everything load should you boo into recovery and flash the theme.

    Rom Manager kind of does it all in one shot for the initial install. cvpcs has it set up to let you select the rom, gapps, kernel and theme.

    Some people have experienced problems doing it all at once, with certain themes.

    Yeah, just use rm to download it, then boot into recovery and apply the rom and gapps.

    In that case, you just download from the website here and flash it through clockwork/SPR.

    Can I just "install ROM from SD card" through ROM manager?
