What's the best place to start looking for help with VM Reverb? I have just received one, brand-new, just opened and posted from it. Looking for a good place to start the process of proper root, backup, ect ect. I have successfully rooted 3 phones, bricked them all, with the encouragement of this site, devs, and all the homework one's eyes can handle, I have unbricked all of them in one day and I'm a complete noob. This site is straight up boss material. I will be donating every dime I can.
2-Motorola Devour's
1-Samsung Illusion
Did I mention the dev's are true android beasts. MAJOR props guys, thank you all very much.
Still stock, and ready for modifications.

Can anybody confirm this.

http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/704920-reverb-roms-apps.html

I only ask because I haven't had any luck in finding much of anything else, and I don't trust many sites, but I trust this fine group of people to judge if it's safe or not. I'm no programmer or scripter so I have no idea what I'm looking at in these files.

Thanks in advance.

reading that post they are saying you can use poot to root that phone, Poot is pretty straight forward and we have it posted on here in the Huawei Ascend section as it was a way to root that phone before they switched to the Ascend Y so i would trust that for root anyway, once you gain root i will find out what is needed to pull the kernel and so on and see what we can do for the reverb.

Great news, I'll begin the process of rooting as soon as I compile the required apps & install. Will report back asap.

On a side note, if you're busy with another project, I don't have a problem waiting either. I love the things that come from this site and I plan on sticking around as I'm an electronaholic. Gotta have my devices. Lol.

i downloaded one of the cwms off that post i will check it over and let you know about it, this will also give me a chance to see what the mount points are for the kernel, recovery, system, data, cache, and so on.

here is another post with links to the poot rooting system it also works on some LG devices to so lemme know if this does work properly on the Reverb

Ok I got parse errors on both packages. Downloaded poot from other link, getting ministro 2 from market now, both installed fine. Now just to clarify, do I poot first or ministro?
Edit:   Just opened poot 1st, it opened Ministro on its own.

If you have cwm make a backup first, then remove them.

Looks like a 7x30 device. Luckily these use boot.imgs the majority of the time. It also looks like 512GB onboard RAM. It almost looks like another ancora, maybe even an ariesve...

Now that's nice. How would one accomplish this? I'm hoping to get it setup so it's nice and fast but also have a good stock backup to reflash with Odin if I end up bricking it.

To be honest, the GPU scores were pure luck. Sometimes it runs like a freight train, other times it doesn't. The rest is a tweaked kernel, minfrees set to "Optimum" and Greenify kicked in (Greenify is a must for low-RAM ICS devices.)

Yeah, I found Greenify and Seeder when I got my VL-107 walmart special. But it does seem to help.
This Reverb does seem to run pretty smooth, mainly I just want to be able to flash it as close to original state as I can if I manage to total it like I did my 2 Devours and my Illusion.

I setup Greenify on the kids D2 tablet that has 300 and some odd mbs of ram and running ICS..... what a difference! It went from taking 5 seconds to open the app drawer to only a fraction of a second! Definitely a must have ;D
With the donate version you get the Xposed engine integration :D

I successfully partitioned my sd card to fat32 and ext2, thus allowing me to install more apps to the phone and the sd card. I used the minitool partition software, xp/Vista /7/8 compatible. Now I can use link2sd and it seems to be working very well so far.
 Those with low internal memory and nice big sd cards might give it a go. Word of advice though, this will wipe the sd card, so make a backup of any important files. I found the Minitool for free on cnet, so a Google search should do. Just follow the instructions at the link to the t, stock & custom roms should work fine. Now install and enjoy bunches of apps without the low internal memory issues. Custom Rom's have separate instructions at the bottom of the page in the link.

http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tutorial-a-guide-to-link2sd/

I have tested this on my Galaxy Reverb and it Does Work, I have not noticed any issues yet.  Though some apps may not work with it, I have found none. :)

I take no credit for this guide, nor am I responsible for damaged sd cards, as I did not create it and can not fix corruption.
I'm sure if instructions aren't followed, you could possibly corrupt your sd card. So please please read and re-read the guide before attempting this.

Also after you create your first fat32 partition / the bigger one, do not try to re-partition it to make the second partition. You will see a blank/unnamed column with smaller storage just below the new partition, this is to be your second partition/ ext2 or ext4 depending on your Rom. This smaller one is where the link2sd will put your apps+data+libraries. The bigger one is what will be left for average storage / music, pics, videos and other files.

Hope you enjoy.

this recovery in the post u linked Clockwork Mod Recovery (Test 8)
This will add CWM to your stock Reverb. Flash in PDA section in Odin.

should work fine on the phone test it out and let me know, if it works then you can make a nandroid backup of the device

Cool news, I will get right on it when the phone is charged, though i'm not sure how to make the nandroid backup. Also will I need a .pit file or do I just flash the cwm by its self in the PDA slot?

I started doing a bit more homework on flashing the cwm and stumbled upon this,

 http://androidforums.com/reverb-all-things-root/673189-cant-access-cwm-recovery-mode-reverb.html

My questions are: do you think we/I can get the flash done and not have this issue? If that does happen, would it be fixable?

Honestly if I brick this one, my wife will kill me. Lol :) But I'm more than willing to give it a go if, in your opinion its safe.
Phone is charged and ready.

Ok so I decided to let'em hang and give it a go. No need for a .pit file. Cwm install was successful, now making a backup to external sd. Will post results soon.

Backup successful, reboot successful, backup is in cwm file.
What's next?
Would it be safe to somewhat modify some of the the files within the backup using Nandroid manager or another app of the like.

now that you have one backup, do a factory reset go in and make a backup of the stock system. and zip it and upload it somewhere and i will make a rom for it,  then all you have to do is restore the first backup and your phone will be back to where it was.
