    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

    LOL i remember that post, was kinda funny (in a way) to read. Thats how i was when i had to sbf, was thinking "oh god, i hope this works..... i dont want to go back to my crappy Alias 1 that the keyboard is about to fall off of" (its hanging by like 2 little bitty pieces of plastic and thats it). Also had the "my moms gonna kill me if she finds out" thing.....

    btw, emo isnt a genre. Neither is screamo for that matter.....

    I dont like most of those but We Came As Romans and For the Fallen Dreams (especially the first album) are hella badass bands. I listen to alot of veil of maya, august burns red, volumes, necrophagist, psycroptic, deftones (deftones is my all time favorite) those are some of my favs, i listen to a **** ton of bands tho, i have over 200gb of music.....great now im adding to my thread being hijacked lol

    Yea, theb if you read that you know what i went thru, and i ended up fixing it before anyone even posted hahah. I was glad i could entertain you all, it was pretty friggn funny to ready, i felt a lil embarassed for being a dumbass but oh well, we alk have our moments and i was really stoned so that didnt help. But like i said it was a great learning process. But i got one more question, i just downloaded rubix focusex 2.0.1 from the official thread for that rom, i did it from my phone not pc, and so where on the sdcard does stuff like that usually save? And i dont have to unzip do i? Just hit install zip from sdcard in the cwm recovery mode?
    Oh and i get what you mean by saying screamo and emo arent technically a genre but since places like myspace and itunes started calling iy a genre and those kind of bands used those tags to explain what genre they are, now everyone thinks it is. I cant stand emo, and its so stupid to call it that because all music has emotion in it, not just emo lol

    August Burns Red is great too. I saw WCAR 1/23 with Woe and For Today and they were amazing. They were even down a member, lead guitarist had something really really bad and couldnt play for like 3/4ths of the tour (was the Motel Six Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour. Had WCAR, Woe is me, For Today, The Word Alive, and Texas In July)

    Correct, I normally just drop it on the root of the sd card so its easier to get to in cwm. Leave it zipped, otherwise it wont install. Yep, make sure to wipe data/cache before also.

    Thats awesome i would love to see WCAR live. I got to see august burns red, darkest hour, unearth and himsa, all togeher here in seattle a few years back, i love every one of those bands so it was amazing. Darkest hour is the ****, im so sad that they let their OG lead guitarist go 2yrs back(theyve been a band for at least 10yrs) cause Kris Norris was ****ing amazing, he has influenced my playing style so much and learning his guitar parts in their songs is how I learned to do sweep arpeggios a few years ago. Oh and texas in july is pretty dope. Their guitar parts are hella easy to play but they got some wicked breakdowns, and its so energetic and fun to listen to. I found them by accident last year.

    And thanks for answering my quesion. Can i move files on my sdcard in my phone or do i have to plug it into my pc and open it up in order to do that, i never tried so thats why im asking. I think i remember seeing a move option

    Nice! Sounds like me with Avenged Sevenfold, Syn's sweep solo's is what taught me how to sweep. I'm hopefully getting to go to warped tour this year and seeing A Skylit Drive (one of if not my absolute favorite bands), Asking Alexandria, WCAR (twice in one year would be epic), A Day to Remember and a bunch of other good bands.

    Have to connect to computer with usb cord or use Wifi Explorer and move that way.

    Nevermind, i answered my own question, i did what you said and moved the zip to the first/root part of the sdcard. Prolly just gonna make a folder called "Custom ROMs" so that way i can just everything in there for better orginization. I wish i knew what needed to be ony my sdcard and what doesnt cause there is a lot of random files and folders that i have no idea where or what they are for. Oh, but one thing i found is a zip for cwm called update.zip, founx it twice, once on the root of my sdcard and the once in the cwm folder, do i need to use that to update or is it just there for when i do need to update. I wasnt sure if i need to use it now and make sure im updated

    The one in the sdcard is another way of flashing clockwordmod recovery. Not sure what the one on the root of the card is though.
