    AreaRom v3.2 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 AreaRom3.2.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: AreaRom3.2.zip

    22. Select: AreaRom3.2.zip

    23. Select: Yes - Install AreaRom3.2.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!!

    ---------

    Optional Custom Kernel:
    (this is for AreaRom v3.2 on the Samsung Galaxy Precedent only!!!!)

      a. this is optional and does not need to be done unless you want a over clocked kernel
      b. this will not work on all phones, and you may need to install the stock kernel if the phone boot loops

    1. Download a custom kernel from here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
      a. there are 3 options
      b. Stock - this is the stock kernel with no modifications.
      c. AK51-OC-900 - this is over clocked slightly and will increase performance some.
      d. AK51-OC-946 - this one is really over clocked and will reduce battery life, but huge improvement on performance.

    2. Transfer the kernels zip file to the root of your sd card
       a. just like you did with the rom
       b. dont unzip it, just download and transfer it.

    3. Shut Your Phone off.

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

    5. 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

    6. Select: Install zip from SDcard

    7. Select: Choose zip from SDcard

    8. Find the kernel file either:
        a. AK51-STOCK.zip
        b. AK51-OC-900.zip
        c. AK51-OC-946.zip

    9. Select the kernel file
        a. one of the names listed above

    10. Select: Yes - Install <kernel name here>

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

    12. Your Done!

    ---------

    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,

    Just got it installed and it is pretty awesome, question though, is there a way to integrate Swype with this? It is really the only thing that I miss that was stock. Even downloaded it from Swypes website and installed on the phone and still a no go. Sorry if it is a stupid noob question. Thanks in advance!

    There are similar ones in the Playstore. I installed SlideIT keyboard for my wife and she loves it. I didn't install it on mine but have used hers. I would reccomend it.

    For future reference, you should post this question in a different forum. Maybe AreaRom3.2 questions after install, or something similar.

    is it just the navigation app or the whole gps system?
    I had that problem in cm7.1 but there was a build.prop update that fixed it. (manual install)

    Hey guys. Just flashed over to this from stock rom. Diggin it a lot, except for the basic Google blue lol. The black and blue is  ugly IMO, but hey, it runs like a newer better phone lol. Really pleased with the rom. Appreciate it a lot guys.
    So far, 2 things:
    1.) The camera's Color Effect causes a Stop error.
    2.) Power settings used from notification tray glitch and sometimes won't turn off or on any of the 5 options.
    Nothing major, but thought I'd give my input!
