      Let me know. I appreciate help.
    Check out the Avail section, too.

    Most EVERYTHING that works on the Avail ALSO works on the Merit (Except some rooting)

    This includes:

    ROMs
    Kernels
    Recoveries

    Check out the  ALL THINGS ROOT subsection of the Avail forum, too

    And see what you've been missing!

      Um, okay
     found these prowling through google: Thought you might like them... You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
    They appear to be ATT Avail roms...
    I started to use one and flashed it to my net10 merit....  I flubbed up of subbing Phydeux's CWM recovery.img for the standard recovery (I deleted the original but forgot to replace it with the modded recovery.img  so I ended up with no recovery, but it did flash the boot.img before ending the flash (no recovery.img error)  so I had an att boot img  it booted zte screen then att screen then tracfone screen and was like factory reset on merit OS. (It did retain root and I quickly reflashed recovery and restored.....If I get brave I will do it again with the CWM recovery.img included

    I am ready to flash as I have backed up saved my backup and have CWM as my recovery.img I saw you over talking to the CM Blade folks, any progress with that?


    Also, I see the KIS paired with the name roamer 2, isn't the avail roamer 2?

    Roamer 2 is a whole different beast, no relation to our Z990 Avail/Merit

    Those ROMS are the AT&T "Official" updates. Pure AT&T w/CarrierIQ and all the bloatware, kernel not ext4 or swap enabled (Cannot run a swap or read ext4). Those are TOTAL stock roms.

    If you kept root, that's pretty cool (good info to know). I have all those ROMS already. No real "need" at the moment for using them, tho. In the coming weeks, there's going to be a bunch of Avail/Merit goodies coming out.

    We have a "road map" of where things are going (Can you say "The Official AreaRom Merit/Avail", "tuned" PhydeuxROMs for the AT&T and Net10/StraightTalk carriers, and "speed enhanced" ROMs?).

    Stay tuned....

      Um, okay
    Well, I have more to report... lol I decided to repackage the Vivo brasil roamer rom with a clockworkmod recovery and then booted into CWM and flashed the zip package.... no problems (I know its stock, I just wanted to try out the fm radio, cuz I'm silly that way)
    My normal Merit boot is a black background ZTE screen then I see a blue tracfone screen and some music. 
    The vivo rom booted with a black screen with a green Android robot logo then a white screen with blue ZTE then a black screen with VIVO then loaded up android startup for new user (language select)
    I played with it a while and went back to CWM and selected my rooted merit rom backup I made when I first set up CWM, and when I booted.... I still saw the black screen with green Android robot THEN the black ZTE screen then the tracfone screens, so whatever was in the vivo rom left something residual after restoring my CWM backup (that silly robot screen is all that loads when booting the CWM too!!)
    spooky, huh? lol

    Nope.

    Alot of "stock roms" flash the splash.img partition. CWM does not save this, nor restore to it, so, you'll get the last one flashed.

    Stay tuned! Big announcements SOON about PhydeuxROM and the release of AreaRom for the Z990's!
