    Hey Chevy. I'm having an odd problem on my Evo. I have a Moto Droid running 4.96 after having every other version you've made, and the 1.0 kernel and the phone runs great. However, while installing 4.96 onto the Evo, it gets to the step in recovery where it attempts to flash the kernel and fails. Even without trying to install a kernel, the message comes up. I've tried different kernels and attempted the whole thing many times, but the same error in recovery comes up, "error flashing chevy 1.0 kernel" and it just stops. I've tried rebooting afterward, but it just gets stuck in the HTC stock loading screen. Any suggestions or ideas? I tried flashing two other ROM's and they go smoothly (one with a custom kernel and one without) with no flaws, but i like yours the best. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I do have the new Evo, with H-Boot set to off. (The phone is fully unlocked) I decided to flash the Amon Ra 2.2.1 Recovery for Evo in case it is a clockwork recovery error, and it tells me "verification failed. missing 'system/bin/checkanim.' package signed incorrectly."

    I then tried the kernel by itself, and got same error but the missing file was 'system/xbin/12ping.' I tried MikFroyo's new 4.4 ROM and once again, everything worked. That sucks because it's still not Chevy. NEED HELP

    When you said the ALT method by downloading the blue theme zip...where exactly would I find that? I looked up the first page of this thread and found nothing

    Its the first link under the screenshots.

    Here: http://chevyno1.richstevenson.com/froyo/4.96/SimplyStunning-v4.96-update.zip

    the unthemed link under that is the stock look, which you already have.



    just download that, reboot recovery, and install (flash) that file. DO NOT WIPE CACHE OR DO A FACTORY RESET

    Bkapps/rstapps

    Chevy, thanks for all the hard work, 4.96 has been running well for me so far.

    One thing I noticed coming from 4.7 and using the bkapps/rstapps scripts from tools, any apps that had been moved to SD did not restore properly. Viewing apps on SD from settings > manage apps, I could see small residual files for each app there, but none of them were working or could be run. I had to uninstall all of that apps that had been on SD and re-download/install from the market.

    Have you thought about bundling up those scripts into an app and putting it up on the market for $2 or so, so that any phone or ROM can use them? It's what has kept me on your ROM all this time, but I'd definitely use it on my wife's Fascinate if it were an option because its so much easier than MyBackupPro or Titanium. I think something like that with a simple interface ("Backup", "Restore", "Fix Permissions") would be a big hit.

    Anyway, thanks again!

    Hi! Not sure exactly what you are needing .. I presume you want to install this ROM? You can install using any aftermarket recovery (ie SPREcovery, or Clockwork). Which one do you have?

    Check to ensure that 'USB Debugging' is turned on - that should stop your issue.

    This ROM is not made for the EVO - I presume that is your issue!

    Welcome back Chevy! ;-)

    Thanks for everything you do, and for producing one of (if not the best) stable, fast ROMs around. :icon_ banana:
