    Oh is it ... then i may have hit the panic button a bit too soon ... i just didn't want anybody to go the SBF way ...

    This is what i did ... please point to a wrong turn i may have taken ...

    I was running Gummy ROM for a couple of days without issue ... then i read about the JC's defy ported recovery ... i thought i would update only the recovery ... hence i flashed dettofatto's bootmenu zip ... the blue light recovery was flashed successfully ... but i ended up with 'recovery boot loop' ... i tried to restart from the recovery so that i could boot into my Gummy ROM normally ... but was not able to ... then i flashed JC's 'old clock recovery' zip ... i flashed it successfully ... but wasn't able to boot into the phone running Gummy ROM ... tried r+m+power combination ... but could not access the stock recovery as '@' key did not respond ... and i didn't know that i had to press both the vol buttons

    Then i started CLEAN ... i SBF'd back to froyo today morning and ran all OTA updates ... rooted ... installed CWM through boot strapper and installed JC's latest CM7 alpha build ... tested it a briefly ... then i wanted to go back to Gummy ...

    i flashed the Gummy ROM through JC's defy ported recovery(which was really coooool) ... installed Gapps ... rebooted ... but my phone would just not go beyond the motorola logo ... then i invoked r+m+power stock recovery ... invoked both the vol buttons simultaneously ... cleared data/cache ... but the reboot would just not go beyond the motorola logo !!!

    This is when i returned to a clean ... SBF ... again ... and posted a CAUTION note ... having SBF'd twice in a day ...

    Can you please point to the place where i may have made a mistake ?

    The only issue I've run into with using both ROMs is that they each use a different version of CWM recovery, so the Nandroid backups don't work if you don't have the correct recovery. For instance, if I am currently on Gummy, and want to switch to CM9, I can't simply restore my backup of CM9 that I made before I flashed to Gummy. Instead, I have to flash CM9 as a new install, then go back and restore the backup. It's an extra step, but it's not that big a deal, since it's only a few clicks here and there.
    Freak4dell ...

    1. Can you please confirm if while flashing Gummy ... coming from cm9 ... does the defy ported recovery stays or did it go back to the old CWM recovery ???

    2. Was it accessible when a 'boot to recovery' was issued from within the Gummy build ?

    3. When you test CM9 ... coming from a Gummy install ... do you flash cm9 from JC's defy ported recovery accessed from within Gummy ?

    thanks,

    Unfortunately, I can't point to where you made a mistake. There's a ton of variables, and it could even be as simple as a botched download, which wouldn't have been your fault (though MD5 checks are supposed to verify this). Did you make sure to wipe before each flash? When going from different ROMs, I always make sure to wipe everything. Honestly, I don't know what to tell you. All I know is that I was running CM9 for about a month, then Gummy came out, so I figured I'd try that. Wiped and flashed that, and it worked just fine. I came back to the U.S. a week ago, and found that Gummy didn't work that great with GSM data, so I flashed to CM9, then I flashed Gummy again to try and see if I could get the data to work, but it didn't, so now I'm back on CM9.

    1. The Defy ported recovery was not retained. When installing Gummy, the other version of CWM recovery is flashed. I'd look up the version number, but I don't feel like flashing just to do that.

    2. Yup, in Gummy, I can boot to recovery from within the ROM. In CM9, this is not possible...you have to wait for the blue light.

    3. Coming from a Gummy install, there is no Defy ported recovery, so it's not possible to flash CM9 from the Defy ported recovery. When I'm going to CM9 from Gummy, I just flash through the version of recovery that Gummy includes.

    thanks for the clarifications Freak4dell ... so as per what you say ... the recoveries are packaged with these ROMS ... every time we flash a ROM CM or Gummy it flashes the recovery its packaged ... If only we could flash one recovery and keep changing the ROMs ... that is how it was on my previous device ... one recovery and forget it ... well its a limitation we have to live with given our locked bootloaders i guess ...

    But i really hope even Gummy added this new defy ported recovery to their ROM ... that way we can hope to have a common recovery without having to flash a new recovery each time we try/test various ROM's ...

    One more clarification ...

    Freak4dell ... Have you ever come from a CM7(the latest one) to Gummy ... ???

    If anybody here is attempting this ... please post the result as to whether you were able to migrate from CM7's latest build to Gummy Latest build successfully ... or the issue i faced is recreated !!!

    I'll go back to Gummy in the meanwhile as i use GSM and the last time i checked both GSM voice and Data worked from me ...

    thanks,

    Is anyone here able to set a mobile data limit on this ROM? I don't have the checkbox like shown here How to use Android 4.0 to help you manage your data plan | How To - CNET

    Perhaps you didn't wipe the /system before flashing Gummy from my bootmenu CM7? You should always wipe system, data, and cache before switching from one ROM to another
    if you'd like to buy me a beer, you can donate here :P thank you!!

    That only really applies to roms with bootmenu. Rom zips format /system but bootmenu interferes with it so have to wipe separately.

    Well I just installed Gummy from my ROM with the bootmenu, I formatted system, data, and cache and it booted fine. That bootanimation with the sound is HILARIOUS! HAHAHAHA! One thing I noticed after looking at the updater-script in your Gummy ROM is that your zips don't actually format the /system although it says it does with the ui_print(" Formatting /system... "); but there's no actual line that says to actually do it

    Sorry about your SBFs, aiamuzz :-(
