@All-
Download the zip file
Extract it any where go inside it and u'll find a folder named clockworkmod inside that there is a folder named backup >> inside that there is a folder named" 2012 ..." (Some number which is actually a date on which I created a backup)... This folder contains the img files to be restored...
Paste this folder on SdCard>clockworkmod>backup>[{Paste that folder here}]
Go to CWM recovery 5.0.2.6
Restore
ENJOY

napyaninja said...

Dipesh_RedD3V1L said...

Working on such a highly themed MIUI now...
MIUI home launcher
MIUI bootanimation
MIUI theme
MIUI gallery
All new Bravia screen engine(Better than the one that LG Optimus users have ported)
As fluid as MIUI
SystemUI optimization
MIUI like status bar
New notification pull down bar
XLOUD sound engine
RAM optimizer

Base CM7

aNY MORE SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME \M/

Stormy Boston said...

Hi, I flashed the CWM recovery, but it needs to open some files in som kinda directory... but it can't find it. Can someone help with unzipping the right file and putting it to the right directory? Thanx a lot!

103787589673840626649 said...

I did the restore but and it says 'MD5 mismatch!'.. wth??

Stormy Boston said...

OKAY, GUYS, I FIGURED IT OUT!

So! I made a backup from my current ROM, to discover the right directory of the backup files.

1. put that zip file to your SD card.
2. unzip it.
3. From (UNZIppED FOLDER)clockwork mod/backup/ copy the 2012-2-16.10.32.05 folder to sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/ HERE.
4.Reboot to recovery
5. restore.

U made it!

unfortunately After all I faced the "no signal" problem... I tried to make a master reset, but it still unsolved...

Ifa nyone have some solution for this issue, please tell share it with us!

Thanx

Komayo said...

Every time i do restore, it cant find system.img, data.img, etc.

My path /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-2-16.10.32.05.

It seens files, have other names like data.yaffs2.img, etc

Stormy Boston said...

the extracted backup flder contains the followed files:
android_secure.vfat.tar
boot. img
cache.yaffs2.img
dada.yaffs2.img
nandroid.md5
recovery.img
sd-ext.ext3.tar
system.yaffs2.img

These files are needed to succesfully restore a ROM... They are on that folder...
U must lace it like this :
sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-2-16.10.32.05/ Files written below...

Note... I restored this ROM to phantom's ROM... and i have no signal... I'm not sure, but i think, that if I flash a CM7 nb0. and i restore this ROM this problem will be solved... BUT IT'S JUST MY opinion!!!

bboy23 said...

I rename every file as xxx.img and it's working on clockworkmod 5.0.0.6 recovery 2.5.1.3

jeffrey said...

those who have problem restoring::

extract the backup file here:
1.)sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-2-16.10.32.05

2.) download this file its a recovery.img of 5.0.2.6 and extract to the root of sd card

>>>> http://www.mediafire.com/?qj763f940glkw4p

3.)go to terminal

4.) type the ff:

su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img

5.) and reboot to recovery

6.)restore

the recovery.img should be 5.0.2.6 so that it will restore the file... NOTE! dont rename those files or you'll get MD5 mismatch!! hope this help!!

Stormy Boston said...

Hi, JEFFREY! Everything is fine, hope everyone can do things right. I just have a problem: NO SOGNAL... Any ideas, my friend?

jeffrey said...

Hi Stormy!! try to install cm7 stable rom or mygingerbgaia 1.1.0 first before restoring...

Unknown said...

i can't install Whatsapp, Line

103787589673840626649 said...

Jeffrey, what cm7 ver. you use before restoring??

Stormy Boston said...

Okay, Jeffrey! I'll try it! Thanx a lot! :)

annamir™ said...

The GUI is really interesting. BUT it not really stable, several time force close, also hanging and lagging.

103787589673840626649 said...

agree with annamir™.. always fc and hanging.. auto reboot.. :(

annamir™ said...

I need to go back to CM7.0.2 which is very stable on my mi300.

sameer said...

SAME WITH ME
The GUI is really interesting. BUT it not really stable, several time force close, also hanging and lagging.

zuckerburg said...

lagging and freezing must be caused by overclocking.
it is defaulted @ 320 - 800mhz
try lowering it.

annamir™ said...

Zuckerburg:
I had lowered the cpu after done flashing to 600mhz.

Correction to my above post, I mean CM7.1_EAv7.2 is a very stable rom on my mi300, seriously no problem at all :)

ARUN said...

I installed this rom its working fine

jeffrey said...

@103787589673840626649 i flash mygingerb stable before restoring this rom...

for those who are experiencing FCs and hangs fix permissions... anyway its a really good rom..

Bhanu Chowdary said...

i faced severe and frequent hangs on MI 300. I am reverting to my previous stable CM 7.1

jeffrey said...

and guys... wipe dalvik cache and wipe data before restoring for better results

103787589673840626649 said...

Always got message 'Google Talk authentication failed'. any solutions???

Srgrox said...

takes forever to get charged...Draining...But AWESOME look....I wish it was stable...tried everything...but Only Phantom suits my XT502...
Reverting back to it...

jeffrey said...

@Srgrox ...try to reset the battery stats...

terry said...

here what i do to flash it on mi300

-extract da file to sd root
-flash my mi300 using sut with cm7.0.2 nbo
-not entering rom after sut flash redirect to recovery
-update recovery using zip
-reboot recovery after update
-choose restore and restore to this rom
-after completed wipe dalvik cache and cache.
-choose turn off on recovery n master reset using 3 button combo
-wait till master reset done
-charge fully n callibrate battery
*additional* as .35 not really stable with oc, i change da kernel to .32.9 as i need oc.

anyway, really nice rom, smooth n no lag exp
as for 3d perf, not yet tested but as for video viewing, i would say 20% better than eav 7.2
da real prob is battery, but, solved as i buy another battery.

but i do throw away all non necessary apks from system.

Android said...

Nice ROM. Upgraded from SuperOSR-STBoston 2.2 (gingerbread 2.3.7). However unable to connect to Wifi with WPA2_PSK.

Anyone faced this issue? Any solution for this?

Will have to go back to SuperOSR if wifi doesnt work.

Kevin Wang said...

The installment completes, the movement perfect ~ brand-new interface uses is very smooth!! Whether only some question ~ can the solution?? Because of the program compatible question, causes LINE as well as WhatsApp is unable on the mobile phone to install carries out the ~ screen to demonstrate " The application program has not installed " Is also is unable on Market to search for LINE, WhatsApp!! Will install LINE using the computer to prompt you This application program and your A688 Sony Ericsson Optimus Boston are not accommodating
