  2. i have cm7.what should i do?should i flash Chocobread v1.2.please reply me.Is it better than cm7?

    ReplyDelete
  3. akshay bedegkar,
    If you have CM7 you can skip step 1 and 2 from the instructions above to flash Chocobread on your rom. Also, it is difficult to say whether it is better than CM7 or not since it is a matter of personal preference (you might like on while I might like another). However, I can say CM7 has some extra features than this rom. Why don't you give it a try and see for yourself? You can return back if you don't like it.

  4. This is very buggy ROM. Crashed nearly 7 times as soon as I flashed this ROM. When I load Task manager, phone reboots. Also I don't see much stability in this ROM. I used CM, stock 2.3.6, Chocobread, emanon v3. I found the emanon to be the most stable, fast, useful, handy ROM. Far better than CM and others. CM also crashed many many times and I could never run radio and bluetooth. For me I want stability with few features and do not look for anything fancy. My recommendation is emanon v3 for stable, faster and nice ROM.

  7. I recently switched to Chocobread v1.2 on my Samsung GTS 5570. Unfortunately there is no Kies mode in Chocobread v1.2 for GTS 5570 to connect to Kies.
    Now that I have lost all my contacts, the only backup I have is an SPB file.
    My contacts only imports vcf files and neither have I been able to find anything that imports SPB files or converts SPB files to vcf files.

  8. Kamal,
    If you can't adjust with the problem or just add the contacts again then I suggest you go back to GB and then restore your contacts. Now, search market for SMS backup and restore app (or something similar) that will backup your contacts and sms and then after flashing chocobread install it and then restore your backup. If you didn't get what you mean, please seek for some extra help here https://www.facebook.com/groups/299391963406663/

  14. how to back up our phone data n restore it after flashing another ROM.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ashokjalagam,
    The best way is to use Titanium Backup to backup data/apps and user data and then restore it after flashing the rom. You can also use Advance restore in CWM recovery to restore your apps (/data and /sd-ext only) but the previous one is easier and simpler.

  17. Hi yagya.. Nice to see you again.. :)

  19. Yes, you can get back to official Gingerbread once you flashed custom rom. To downgrade simply flash gingerbread using Odin like you did while upgrading.

  26. You can directly restore the backup from CWM recovery Backup and Restore option. Make sure you wipe data before restoring the backup. Or, you can flash emanon v4 first in CWM recovery and then restore the backup and reboot.
