    Hey Friends! I have root and through ROM Manager I am currently running Sapphire 1.1.0. This morning it said there was an update (through Rom Manager notifications) for 1.1.1 When I hit update. I checked Google Apps. I backed Up and I wiped. Luckily the back-up worked, but it took me back to 1.1.0.

    Is there a reason you think that it isn't updating? Is there a step I am missing? I have noticed my ROM MANAGER acting sort of strange. Sometime I have to flash it twice before it will back up.

    Thanks!

    Matt

    Just try downloading the files manually and updating in clockwork recovery.

    Wipe is probably not needed coming from 1.1.0.

    Last I heard from the team, whoever uploaded the ROM Manager update has the updating happening in the wrong order. It should first install the sapphire update, then the gapps update, then whatever kernel you want then whatever theme.

    So the best choice would to be to manually get into clockwork and apply the updates in the correct order until this gets resolved...if indeed this is your issue. I downloaded from the wiki page and installed manually and have no issues so far.

    Edit: The first page here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cvpcs/79204-1-1-1-sapphire-release-anoucement.html has the download links. Post #23 describes what I was trying to say. :)

    :welcome: to the forum Matt! We're very happy to have you join us! :D

    I merged your threads for you as cross posting is not allowed in here.

    If I were you I'd just get rid of RM. It's iffy to say the least and only a select few have total success with no headaches.

    Sorry guys, can you walk me through how I would do it manually?

    -DL the file to my SD Card, then?

    Thanks!

    Can't blame RM for this - the ccroms team just made a mistake in the manifest.

    Boot into recovery.
    Select "install zip from sdcard"
    Install sapphire 1.1.1 update.zip
    Then do the same for the gapps package.

    Reboot.

    Okay, I installed Sapphire 1.1.1, coming from UD 8. I have no market or Gmail. Maybe I overlooked this in my search. Any help?

    *EDIT: Disregard. I just installed the gapps update.zip and I have my gmail now. Everything is everything.

    Thanks! Will it give me the option to install the gapps package after the update?

    EDIT: I did everything you said and am now updated and working fine! Thanks

    It's not like ROM Manager - you have to do things yourself. ;)

    Install the gapps package exactly as you did the main package.

    Got it! Thanks! Maybe I'll just use this method from now on.

    Personally, I've never used RM, but I find doing things manually to be very reliable as long as you follow the steps correctly.

    How would you go about changing themes or selecting KERNALS manually?

    Same thing you did with the ROM. I use SPrecovery, so I rename the Theme/Kernel zip file to Update.zip, put it on the root of my SD card and install it from the recovery menu. I do the ROM, gapps, Kernel, Theme, in that order. It takes a little longer, but I'm in control of what happens and when it happens.

    Yes, In each developers section on this site, there are usually links to Kernels and Themes that work with their ROMs. I'm a little unclear on which kernels are ROM specific, so I just stick with those recommended by the ROM developer. I believe themes are ROM specific, so check the section of the ROM you want for compatible themes.

    Go to sapphire:releases:1.1.1 [CCRoms Wiki] for all kernels, there are also some themes there. Other themes may be updated on this forum.

    Sorry to be a bother, this is just very informative. So since I have manually updated all zips, like earlier in the thread. Can I do the same process with the kernal and theme without reinstalling the 1.1.1 and gapp?

    This may be a silly question, but once you do all of this, can you take the update.zip files off of the SDcard?
