    Do I need to leave the SD card for the formatting and wiping stage? Step 28 specifically?
    Also, forgot to mention that when your phone boots up, it places the critical files needed to run your phone, on your SDcard.

    I downloaded and installed Area Rom 3.1 to my Precedent and followed instructions exactly. Was upgrading from Area Rom 2.2. Greenbread which I found difficult to use because the font is a fancy-hard-to-read font and had MMS messaging problems. Was especially tickled with the "No CIQ" addition to 3.1. However, after rebooting, my Precedent would not run this. It just booted, and as soon as it started scanning SD card, it just rebooted, like the system could not handle this rom. ? I have no idea. I got no error messages installing. Could it be the overclock 946 kernel causing this? And yes, my SD card was in my phone when I installed this rom.

    flashed it to 2.3 until I can figure this one out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Sounds like it was the kernel or possibly a bad sd card.. Did you partition the sd?

    yes, I partitioned the SD card. It's a 16 gb micro card, I partitioned 4 GB to the ext before installing the Rom.

    Hmm. Okay, thanks. I have downloaded a whole bunch of apps, after I upgraded it to Area Rom 3.0-with no problems so far. I am amazed how much more room I have. I was never able to install more than 7 or 8 apps without getting a low memory alert. Thanks for all the replies, I am loving this forum. What I have read here and been able to download has made my phone seem like a brand new one! Again, thanks so much to everyone who contributed their replies, downloads, information and how to guides! :D :)
    I didn't repartition the sd card to 2 gb but it seems to be running fine? so far? :)

    Did find one problem both with Area Rom 2.2 Greenbread, and 3.0 Cannot send pics in message. It just hangs. Tried using Go SMS app too, it would just hang. I can send text messages but not with pictures in them. Any ideas on how to fix this? I noticed in the description of Area Rom 3.0 that a fix had been included for this.?

    "# - AOSP Launcher2 and Mms Packages Installed No More Issues with Pic Msging"

    I don't know what all that means, but I assumed it would work, but doesn't.  :-\

    do all of the 3.1-4 Area Rom's include CIQ cancelling? I noticed that not all of them mention this feature and I rather like the idea of being able to cancel that junk out. 

    Edit: I've tried 3.4, 3.2, and now 3.3 still no pic messaging works.
