Great. Wouldn't even know how to do that!
Thanks again, bud.
^^^ What he said. Really, listen to anyone that has a green title under their handle haha.
But also, from what I understand, there's absolutely no way to go back to .219 once you go to 4.0.4. For those who are not sure if they've made changes that could cause problems, why not SBF back to complete stock to be sure?
The D4 root tool and Voodoo rootkeeper work flawlessly as long as you follow the directions precisely.
yeah, i wondered if an sbf was possible. i know you cant flash backward, but wondered if sbf would work.
I must have inadvertantly changed something because installation aborted twice.
Any other ideas?
i will give you this, if you let this be completely intrusive, it does work. Be willing to let it all go to backups. whipe it all, start with a fresh flash, and following the directions. Just get your uptodate su binary, and you cant go wrong. Once you are up, use something to restore your apps like titanium
During the installation, press both volume buttons. It will show a log of exactly what is happening, and when it aborts it will show you what file it stopped on. There's a Gingerbread system dump floating around somewhere and you can just replace whatever file is causing the update to fail with the stock file. Chances are there will be more than one file that will cause the installation to fail and it will just be easier to start from step 1 and flash the 6.13.219 fastboot file rather than potentially having to replace a bunch of individual files one by one.
Well as you probably figured out, I am an idiot when it comes to this stuff. I went through the step one install guide and it had a few guys who are much smarter than me bricking their phones. I can't afford a new phone so...
I guess I'll wait. What a wussy.
not a wuss, just playing safe! i am cool with that.
Fair enough. But honestly, there were only two people in that thread (RitaT1219 and nitrojuga) who bricked their phones, and nitrojuga's was because his battery was below 25% when he tried the flash...and he still ended up getting it to work eventually. I have no idea what caused RitaT1219's problem, but at this point it seems like a very unfortunate isolated incident. Many, many other people including myself have done the flash successfully.
The instructions are fairly noob-proof and as long as you follow them exactly, you won't have a problem. Not to peer pressure you or anything

Took the plunge and happy to report success. All your tutorials were awesome and I even managed to retain root.
The only fail was with tether. Did the tether hack and still getting "Tethering started with errors! Please check show log." The show log shows a failure at "setting ad-hoc mode." Any ideas?
Thanks so much for all your help, guys!
Other question is about My Backup Pro.
I did a backup in MBP and when I go to restore, I get "no backups were found at current backup path." But the backup path is correct, pointing to the external card. Does this mean that the card isn't being seen? Anyway to check that?
Thanks again fellas.
