    So i just downloaded rubix focused 1.9.5 from the cwm rom manager and since ive only flashed a custom rom twice and it was on a D2G i was hoping someone can refresh on how on do this. I have the correct kernel (version 2.3.340) it says to have and in rooted, i backuped my current stock rom, so what next. I know i need to wipe data/cache first otherwise i will get stuck in a bootloop. So after i do that thru cwm, do i just hit install and thats it?

    Think thats right. Focused is on 2.0.1 though (Rubix Focused 2.0.1). Ive always just installed through cwm rather than rom manager.

    Oh well i will have to get the new version. I just downloaded from cwm rom manager and 1.9.5 was the only version they had. Of course it may be cause i got the free version so it doesnt allow you to download as many roms. Where do the roms you download thru cwm rom manager, save to on your sdcard?

    I think i just found it in a folder named www.sephtin.com. it has a folder named rubix in it and that has a file names rubix.js. So I'm assuming thats it...

    Yep, thats the one. Not sure why its a .js though o_O I assume thats just a format for cwm to recognize.

    Yea i was wondering that myself. But anyways, im gonna delete it and download rubix focused 2.0.1. So once i do that, i just boot into cwm, click wipe data/cache and then click on install .zip from sd card, find the file and select it and then it installs, reboots and then im done, right?

    Sweet, thanks for verifying for me. I'm comfortable doing anythig with my phone now since i made it thru the hell of sbf'ing my D2G last week, that was a lil intense and for a second there i thought i ruined the phone lol but i figured it all out. Now i can go on and help others and spread the education!

    Um for one, i dont listen to emo, just metal/death/hardcore,(i also listen to a lot of blues, and i love grunge and 90's alternative, among other things) but metal is my main music i listen to and thats the style my band plays(i play guitar, been playing for close to 10yrs) my gf is more into emo and secondly why are you posting that in the middle of my thread! Thanks for the spam......ANYWAYS, i ended up getting a bootloop too and for some reason i couldnt get my phone to get to the screen with the lil droid guy, that lets you wipe your data and return to factory settings, but after a few mins and one post detailing my freaking out, later, i got to the correct screen and wiped my data and then boom it worked. That whole experience made me almost smoke a whole pack of cigs in one sitting lol cause all i could think about is if i perma brick this phone, i wont be able to tradr it for the droid x i have now, and i dont have enough money to afford a new android phone, even a used one from ebay, let alone a new one at full price (which is like 600 or 700$ depending on the phone) so im gonba have to go back to my POS LG voyager that only worked on speaker phone haha it scared the **** outta me. But I'm glad it happened cause it was an awesome first hand learning experience and i troubleshot everything on my own cause i didnt want to sit there and wait for anyone to reply to my post. So after doing that, i feel comfortable about doing anything
