Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 112

post #1111 of 2113
chrischoi, XDA says to use EZ for Verizon SGS3. I'm simply wanting to know how to flash a kernel. Is it still just loading a zip file during recovery exactly as I did for the ROM? The options in EZ are not explained very well which is why I question them. It boots nicely into recovery with CWM so it is good for that at least.

On a related note, does performing a Nandroid backup overwrite the previous?

I've also noticed that these ROMs take up more memory (RAM) than the stock. Is that typical? I have a lot un installed so I'm not sure what would be running at the start.

Thanks chris and iinversion!

I guess last question. Do you actually notice a difference with a different kernel? What percent difference (if it is possible to give one).

I don't notice a huge difference over the stock PA kernel. I am however in the process of majorly undervolting my phone.. it seems to be a real winner. I'm able to do 2.1GHz on the stock voltage.. I'll post results when I'm done.. it's gonna be awhile because of ton of stability testing. thumb.gif

@stargate. Nandroid should create a seperate backup each time. You flash a kernel exactly the same way you flash a ROM minus the wiping.

You do realize that I don't need an account to read posts over there, right? It is funny how that works, I know. Now, if you want to sift through 100-page threads when someone here already has the answer then by all means, but searches of the forums did not yield what I was looking for there (and even here people are not answering all the questions were asked to begin with so many of them are repeats), nor did Google.

^ Sorry but stuff like "what is a nandroid backup?" "which kernel should I use when..." can be googled easily. I know you're a knowledgeable person so it just seems like you're being lazy. These guys are being super patient with you but you could find most answers yourself on XDA.

And I say make an account because if you make an account and post a thread you'll get a lot of answers based on your device.

For example, flashing a Kernel is done in either Odin or CWM. Your choice. Odin just takes the boot.img from the tar and flashes it, CWM uses edify and flashes it using the flash_image binary. This is the sort of stuff you can find by reading XDA and googling for answers..

No offense at all, but yeah. Since getting my GS3 in July I'm now creating ROMs and messing with apk's from my research on XDA.

What? I did not recently ask what is Nandroid backup; I asked if it overwrites the previous backup when you perform another. The EZ Recovery options are not well explained and there is no FAQ that I could find. Searching for something as specific as RAM usage for ROMs did not yield results in Google.

In other words, my questions are generated anymore from using the software and not finding the answer or an acceptable explanation on XDA. And people do not use terminology consistently, which leads to questions. Besides, a place like OCN is supposed to be a knowledge base, so answering the qu stions here if I can't find them elsewhere improves that knowledge base.

XDA is also a knowledge base. frown.gif

It does not overwrite the previous Nandroid. It makes another folder with a date. The dates may be off since there's some bug being worked out.
EZ Recovery, it's called EZ because it's easy. They don't need directions. If you're having trouble don't use it.
To flash a kernel, put the kernel on the phone or SD card, boot to recovery and install .zip.

RAM usage for ROMs and the benchmarks your after... it's a phone.
You're having trouble with EZ Recovery, but you're working on something more complex.

I honestly never noticed a difference between 1.5ghz and 2.0ghz. If it's bragging rights your after, leave it to the advanced users. ALL ANSWERS are found on XDA.

Right, so why even have a phone forum here? Why even have a forum here at all since everyone can find the answers elsewhere on any subject, right? Compounding problems is that people do not use the correct terminology here (or are horribly inconsistent), so trying to find answers to questions is exceedingly difficult. "Flashing recovery" versus "flashing a kernel" versus "flashing a ROM". I'm sure there are differences.

I cleared the Nandroid space just to be sure. I only have 4GB left after the ROM install so I'd rather not push my limits so there is still room for games (I do have an SD card, but I use it for multiple purposes and don't want to buy another if I do not have to).

You are not reading the question properly then (ironic, I know). The differences between the options is what I'm getting at. I looked for an explanation on hybrid ROMs, for example, and couldn't find why I would need a separate option if it's still just a ROM (assuming hybrid is referring to a ROM that works on both tablets and phones). There is also no explanation as to how you flash the invisiblek kernel that comes with the EZ-Recovery program, for example, since you reboot into recovery with CWM to flash something. I'm sure to somebody that makes sense, but there is no FAQ on the program and the page devoted to it on XDA did not show anything obvious.
