    In order flash a DroidMod with DMupdater for the first time

    1. Go to Droidmod.org and Download DMupdater using your phones browser and install.
    1A. Downloaded pack, touch to install (dmupdater-10.apk)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    2. Once installed Click the DMupdater icon in your app drawer
    [​IMG]

    3. A message box will pop up and ask if you want to root your phone
    [​IMG]

    4. In order to load custom ROM's we need our phone rooted, so select "Root my phone"

    5. The phone will now download the needed files in order to Root you phone (takes about 2 min or more)
    [​IMG]

    6. When done downloading the root file another message box will pop up telling you how to reboot into SPRecovery (hold the x key and the power button while powering on)
    [​IMG]

    7. Turn your phone off
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    8. Turn phone on and hold the power button and x key at the same time and you will come to this screen, dont worry!
    [​IMG]

    9. Now we need to push the volume up key and the camera key at the same time

    10. Now we are in the SPRecovery menu
    [​IMG]

    11. Scroll down to "apply sdcard:update.zip" using your d-pad keys
    [​IMG]

    12. Select "apply sdcard:update.zip" with the d-pad button

    13. It will upack what is needed and tell you that the install is complete
    [​IMG]

    14. When done Select "reboot system now" (top where the pic is highlighted)
    [​IMG]

    15. Once rebooted, open DMupdater and a SU Request screen should pop up
    15A. Make sure you check the remember box on the bottom left and allow
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    16. Now it will automatically download a flash image and new recovery image
    [​IMG]

    17. Once downloaded we will be asked to update our recovery image, Select "I understand the risk"
    [​IMG]

    18. A second screen will come up asking if we are really sure, Select "Flash recovery image"
    [​IMG]

    19. Now we will be left with a ROM menu

    20. Select "ROM menu"
    [​IMG]

    21. Now select which ROM you want to install
    [​IMG]

    22. Now youve chosen your ROM, it will download the file

    23. Now we are prompted to flash the ROM
    23A. Select "Flash ROM"
    [​IMG]

    24. Phone will reboot to SPRecovery
    24A. Will automatically create nandroid backup
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    25. Now it should start unpacking the ROM you chose, just let it do its thing
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    26. Once its all unpacked we now see a screen asking if we want to "wipe /data?" ( Use your volume keys to scroll up and down, and your camera key to select)
    26A. If your coming from 2.1, choose "Yes, wipe /data", or "Wipe /data but keep apps"
    26B. If your NOT coming from 2.1 then choose "No, keep /data" (most likely the option you will choose)
    [​IMG]

    27. Now you need to choose your "bashrc (for adb shell)"
    27A. If your using DMupdater to root your phone and load DroidMod ROM's your probably not going to need to know what this is, so just select "Windows Non-Colored bashrc"
    [​IMG]

    28. Are you having trouble with Maps force closing? I dont have that problem so I chose "No"
