    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 AreaRom3.0.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: AreaRom3.0.zip

    22. Select: AreaRom3.0.zip

    23. Select: Yes - Install AreaRom3.0.zip

    24. Wait for your Phone to restart
    (in the rare case it doesn't, give it about 2 mins then restart it yourself)

    ----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 or v3.x other then the name of the zip on your SDcard changes.



    Thank You,
    PureEvil

    your download may have went bad on the AreaRom3.0.zip I would try downloading it again. People seem to have better luck downloading it to a PC rather then there phone...

    Also follow the guide completely! I never mentioned  wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache so your doing things on your own and not following the guide. If you want to do other things, then wait till the rom is installed and working then do them, or we have no way of knowing if the install of the rom went bad, or if it was something else.

    a few things you can try:

    Make sure you have enough space free on your SD card
    Try to transfer it while in recovery mode (there is an option to mount your SD for transfers)
    Turn your phone off and pull the battery for a few
    Do a factory reset and then try it

    If you're rooted and running Clockwork Mod recovery there will be an option. Use the volume up/down buttons to scroll, camera button to select and power button to go back

    Glad 3.0 is out. I got a problem or two I'm trying to figure out, phone is overheating, and running very sluggish after going from 2.3 to 3.0ar,  reinstall 3.0 twice, after a clean wipe from cwm. A few reboots, same problems,  overheating, lag, . Any suggestions?

    tell me which step # and I will correct it.

    24. Wait for your Phone to restart,
    cisco007 & I both had to restart manually at this point.
    I saw that it said that the install was done,Waited 15 minutes on the 2.3 and it never restarted on its own.
    So when I installed 3.0 I just did a manual restart after installation of 3.0.
    Other than that,Directions are great & easy to understand.
    And when I installed 3.0,I started at (19. Select: Install zip from SDcard).
    Everything went good.

    if your already running AreaRom v2.3 you can skip the odin steps, I just leave them in there because it wont hurt to do them and would be to hard to explain to people which steps they can and cant skip. So I find it best to just have everyone do every step every time.
