    AreaRom Install How To

    ---> (Read all of this!!! Don't try to be "smart" and skip ahead!!!!) <---


    First thing: THIS ROM IS FOR A SAMSUNG GALAXY PRECEDENT NOT JUST ANY PHONE!!!!!

    Second thing: I want you to think hard now "Am I using a Samsung Galaxy Precedent?" If the answer is no then read the "First Thing" again!




    Ok so now you thought about it and your sure your using a SamSung Galaxy Precedent

    Here is what to do:

    1. Download the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    2. Unzip it to a folder on your computer
        a. If you have downloaded other roms DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE SAME FOLDER!
        b. This will just confuse you and may cause a problem later on.
        c. Just make sure its all in its own folder.

    3. Hook up a USB cord to your phone -> Computer
        a. Use the USB cord that came with your phone!
        b. Yes this makes a difference.
        c. Just because a USB cord charges your phone does not mean it will allow data transfer!
        d. Just use the cord that came with your phone!

    --------

    4. Download You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    5. Place the AreaRom2.3.zip on you phones SD card
    (dont unzip it, just download and transfer it)

    --------


    6. Shut your phone off

    7. Hold - Volume Down + Camera + Power (hit power last)

    8. Your phone should now say DOWNLOAD

    9. Open the Odin.exe we unzipped to your computer
        a. If odin cant see your phone go here and try this: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    10. Put the .OPS file in the OPS slot

    11. Put the Boot.tar in the Boot slot

    12. Put the Phone.tar in the Phone slot

    13. Put the PDA.tar in the PDA slot

    14. Start the Odin

    15. Wait for your phone to restart
    (in the rare case it doesn't, give it about 5 mins then restart it yourself)

    ---------


    16. After your phone boots up, shut it off

    17. Hold Camera + Volume Up + Power (hit power last)

    18. You should now be in recovery mode
    a. Press the Volume buttons to navigate up and down
    b. Press camera to select stuff
    c. Press power to go back

    19. Select: Install zip from SDcard

    20. Select: Choose zip from SDcard

    21. Find: AreaRom2.3.zip

    22. Select: AreaRom2.3.zip

    23. Select: Yes - Install AreaRom2.3.zip

    24. Wait for your Phone to restart

    ----Your not done, keep reading!------


    25. Wait for you phone to boot back up
    a. This my take 5 mins the first boot, this is normal...Dont Panic!

    26. Hold Power button and select recovery

    27. Wait for phone to boot into recovery

    28. Select: wipe data/factory reset

    29. Select: Yes -- delete all user data

    30. wait for it to be done

    31. Select: reboot system now

    32. Phone will boot back into recovery
    a. We have no idea why it does this
    b. Don't bother asking why

    33. Select: reboot system now

    34. Your Done, and if you did everything in this order it worked!!



    p.s.
    This is how you install any versions of AreaRom v2.x other then the name of the zip on your SDcard changes.



    Thank You,
    PureEvil

    If you're on cm7 then you already have the gb bootloader Odin so all you have to do is flash 2.3 in clockwork mod recovery. Steps 17-34

    To the staff, I know you know it works. To the general public, Arearom v2.3 works, and works well. I followed instructions (with the ever helpful PureEvil) and got the rom to work with no troubles. Thanks again to staff and PureEvil

    Well the Odin download wont download directly to your phone must download from a computer. And are u saying u already have Arearom 2.2? If so this is just a simple cwm install

    Hey it installed just fine, but one thing I don't understand is that now every app I download from the market crashes when I open it unless I reboot the phone beforehand. I also did that root in one click thing before I installed this.could that interfere with the Odin way? Any suggestions on how to fix this problem,I also have a2gb partition on my sd card, with link2card downloading everything to the card.

    there is no need for a2sd or link2sd with this rom. Its already in kernel so all u need is a partitioned SD card. So try doing away with a2sd and link2sd

    roms are made for phones not phones are made for roms. if you was to try this rom in your Q chances are it wouldnt brick it but it would prolly bootloop however the chances of you bricking your phone by trying to use a rom thats not specific to your device is high.

    this is why we put each rom in its own section labeled by which brand of phone it is. =)

    I finally have a smartphone!   I like having more control over the devices that I own.  I want to thank all the people associated with the development of these Roms for all their hard work.  The installation instructions are great!  Easy to follow, and had a Newb running AreaRom2.3 in no time!
