    Squidly Rom steps

    So I have been looking all over this thread, I cant find an exact step by step guideline to flash the squidly rom on my friends D2. I know to go to the zip file and download it on the phone, but from there do I just open Astro, put in on the base of the sd card, and install? I'm looking for a step by step form of things to tell me what to do. I know I need to use bootstrapper to make a recovery but I do that after I flash the rom, right? Am I missing anything here?

    I read the main threads like the Root/Rom Class, the Main squidly 2.3.20, and the various squidly and hack threads... can somebody give me some help please?

    Once you've dl'd the ROM, move it to the root of your sd card (not in a folder) and exit Astro. Do you have texts/call log you want to keep? I'll walk you through the steps

    You use bootstrap recover before flashing the rom, as that is the way you flash it. You'll bootstrap recovery and then place the zip on the root of the SD card. Then you boot in to clockwork recovery by opening bootstrap and hitting reboot recovery. Then when you're in cm recovery you will mount system and data and then instal the zip from the SD card. Iirc squids new rom does not require a wipe of data.

    Actually this one doesn't require a wipe. That's why I recommend it to first time flashers. Very easy.

    Do I open Bootstrap recovery and through that place the Zip on the root of the card? Or do I go through Astro?

    Place it on the root of the card in astro. Then open bootstrap and hit bootstrap recover and wait for it to say success. Then hit reboot recovery.

    That's done through Astro (as mentioned above). Wasn't aware of the "no wipe required" aspect of Squidlymandingo's ROM! I'd still make a backup first!
