...so I downloaded the CM7 Nightflies ROM (revnumbers) from ROM Toolbox/ ROM Manager.(I rooted my D2G after the GB update)
Finally got the balls to flash it, regardless of the several posts about how "oh, my phone is bricked;" "it's stuck in bootup;" "it didn't work and now I'm screwed!;" etc.
Well I clicked 'Install' and selected 'Backup ROM' and 'Wipe Cache' & 'Wipe Dalvik.'
...it then proceeded to recovery mode where it began the execution of the whole Backup process. Then I looked at my screen and it said something about an error & how it was saved to my CWM file and I should report it.
Well my phone rebooted and here I am.
....basically, what I am inquiring is: am I correct in assuming that the steps for ROM Flashing are as follows:
Install ROM--- choose BACKUP ROM, WIPE DATA/ CACHE, and WIPE DALVIK
...and wait for it to reboot into the new ROM?????
I've read and read and read about doing this. But, honestly, I still feel uneasy about it. Like I'm forgetting something and am gonna end up like one of the "HELP ME!! I SCREWED SOMETHING UP..." people. LOL
A little input (or a lot of detailed input) would be VERY appreciated.
Thank you so much
