Rooted! No need for adb or any other procedure
APN for StraightTalk added to standard AT&T APNs (May need to add your own APN for your data to work. Google is your friend)
'Big Data' standard (/data is as big as your sd-ext partition on your sdcard, if you choose to partition it. If not, will still work)
ext4 and swap file system supported in ROM and kernel (kernel already in ROM)
UPDATED: PERMANENT CWM 6 Recovery
automatically installed for you(NOTE: The "update.zip" CWM is version 5)
De-odexed ROM (programs load faster)
Root Browser Lite already installed
Quick Boot already installed
ICS Camera installed
Many other features!
Works with or without partitioning your sdcard. (If you DO partition, though, your /data partition will be as large as the sd-ext you create)Note:
CWM limits restore to 2GB..But, 2GB is PLENTY of room
LIMIT NOW GONE WITH CWM v6!!!NOTE: If you use a sd-ext partition, DO NOT USE LINK2SD OR ANY APP TO MOVE PROGRAMS! It already moves them...
IF your sdcard fails, or you remove the sdcard, you will lose all programs and everything stored in /data
=========================================STEP BY STEP INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
Download both files below. Preferred way is via computer, then copy files to the sdcard (NOT in a folder)
Rename Phydeux-2.0-CWM5-update.zip to just "update.zip". (NOTE: The "update.zip" CWM is version 5)
Boot your phone into Recovery.
Select "Flash update.zip" or, if some Merits, select "Factory restore" option (or something close to it), and press the BACK button
When the temporary CWM comes up, select "wipe data/factory reset", press HOME
Select "install zip from sdcard", and press HOME
Select "choose zip from sdcard", press HOME
Select "PhydeuxROM-2.2.3-Unified-NW.zip", press HOME
When done flashing, select "Advanced", then "Reboot Recovery", press HOME
When CWM reboots, you can either "Reboot system now", or, you can partition the sdcard.To partition
, select "advanced" (NOTE: Partitioning erases all data on SDCARD...Make backups)
Select "Partition Sdcard"
Select any size you want for sd-ext (ANY SIZE YOU WANT WITH NEW 100% CWMv6!!!)
Any size for swap (If adding swap partition, you need an app like Swapper2 from the Play Store to use)
When done partitioning, select "Reboot system now"FIRST BOOT MAY TAKE AWHILE! 5-10 minutes, possibly!
