I can admit that I'm still new to flashing ROM's (1.7.22 was my first ROM) on my G2. I've never seen a good step-by-step guide on how to do this. Below are the steps that I've done, if anyone would be so kind as to tell me if I'm missing anything or can skip something I'd appreciate it a lot. 1. Back up current rom, then after restart backup apps and settings using Titanium & the MIUI backup app 2. Flash the deodex with ROM Manager 3. Once my phone restarts I have to go to the market and reinstall ROM Manager (It would make more sense to restart in recovery but I can't do that since my apps are gone...am I missing something here) 4. Once I reinstall ROM manager, I flash the English pack 5. As a last step I restore apps & settings I had to do that from memory but I don't think I missed any steps. For me, updating to the newest rom takes maybe 30-45 minutes and that seems like a long time. Basically, it's a big pain to have to restart the phone with a lot of it being in Chinese and and that point having to restore my wifi connection and sign back into the market just to D/L rom manager. Is there a way I can boot into recovery after flashing the deodex? Or is what I described what everyone does? Thanks a lot to anyone who can help. I really appreciate it. I think MIUI is the best looking ROM and would really like to stick with it.
