    Laurijan, just a guess but the rom you are on currently is restoring the stock recovery after every reboot. Easy fix: flash alternate recovery in Rom manager then reflash clockwork mod and then choose reboot to recovery mode.

    It all boils down to the way it was rooted(not saying it was incorrectly done).

    Flash Alternate Recovery is blacked out in ROM Manager. Should I try Flash ClockworkMod Touch?

    Edit: Forgot to say that I try to flash CyanogenMod update-cm-7.1.0-vision-signed.zip

    Make sure you download the latest gapps. Reflashing cwm may work.

    Sadly no, it almost happened, but after the Paypal lawsuit against Google and Google deciding that Google Checkout was a competing product to Paypal, Google dropped the subject
    Frick says thanks.

    I now have a tablet too! A cheap, VERY VERY cheap Kendo M7. 7 inches, possibly a dual core at 600Mhz and resistive screen. Got it for €40 used, but it looks almost pristine. Not very good in many ways, but nice to use. No proper Market though, but I think upgrades will fix that.

    For anyone who uses a Sprint SGS2 Epic 4G Touch; Blazer v3.9 was just released. IMO it's the top rom at the moment. Full custom overstew ICS theme and animations, etc. You can check it out on XDA here:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1363071

    Here is an AWESOME ICS recolor theme called "ICS Sherbert Edition" (works with blazer, calkulin's, and many others):

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1473113


    I'm using this sherbert theme and it's pretty amazing on the E4GT SAMOLED+ display. Screenshots don't do it justice, you have to experience it for yourself.

    Turns out the updates with the good stuff doesn't work:

    v1.4.1
    -Better battery performance
    -Root support
    -Superuser
    -Better use of Processor/memmory
    -New launcher

    v2.0.1
    Improved system stability
    Better touch screen response
    Bug fix. Force close at boot
    Bug fix. Scandinavian keyboard

    Boo, hiss. It works ok though, it would've been nice with an upgrade though. :(

    This shit is addictive. I have been through at least four up/side/down-grades on my gtab tablet in the last 24 hrs. Not because of probs, just for the fuck of it!

    Don't even get me started on my phone...!

    One word of advice if you get the Sammy, load the drivers on the PC first. I have worked on a few Samsungs, and they all needed different drivers.

    Get the Galaxy ace, its a much better Android phone, and it has some stuff for it. Here is a link to the XDA section for it.

    Retired the Atrix today for the Galaxy Note. So far its the perfect size for me and kills my desire for a tablet. Battery life seems average, but maybe it needs to go through a couple charging cycles to calibrate.
