    I've gotten the phone stuck in bootloop with every attempt. Luckly, I learned how to get the phone out of bootloop with RSD lite. I've attempted this 3 times, each time i get the same error message from the boot loader screen after choosing the "choose zip from sdcard" option.

    The installation starts, and aborts with the error

    "Installing system files . . .
    Creating lings and setting permissions . . .
    Flashing 7 slot 1.0Ghz Low-Voltage Kernel . . .
    assert failed: write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img".
    "boot")
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.


    I 've tried both theme'd and non theme'd versions of SS 4.96

    I renamed the zip file "update.zip" and tried it as "SimplyStunning-v4.96-update.zip" and "SimplyStunning-v4.96-update-no-theme.zip"

    Get the same error.

    The file is in the root of the sdcard as you can see. The card was formated and other than the normal files and the app files for z4root, rom manager, and droid x boot strap Apps.

    The phone was rooted with z4root, and i followed these instructions

    Copy the update.zip to the root of your sdcard
    Reboot into recovery mode
    Install
    Allow update.zip
    Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    Reboot

    copied from

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm out of ideas. This isn't my first root/custom rom on an android device. Just the droid x is a bit.... difficult due to the boot loading.

    SS 4.96 is a D1 rom. Are you trying to install on an x?

    If you go into Chevy's tools..make sure you have the Brightness feature unchecked......this may help you install 4.96.....

    I don't have an option in chevy tools for a brightness feature. Just settings for wifi/wifi wake up. I'm on SS 1.1 right now. Trying to get to 4.96.

    It sounds like you have a Droid X if you say you are running 1.1 - if that is the case - 4.96 is for the D1 or OG droid as others call it, and will not work on your X

    Yeah, I'm on a droid x. Do you have any low voltage kernels for your ss1.1 for the droid x

    Kernels also are only for the OG Droid - we are stuck on the DX as the bootloader is still locked

    Ok I get it now. We can load roms but not kernel files onto the x. But can a rom not affect the voltage levels on a phone?
