Replacing Sd Card / Partition Before Flashing Cyan 6


I'm replacing my sd card. Do i need to partition it before flashing cyan 6? I'm pretty sure my class6 sd card is going bad and giving me serious lag time when loading the apps. So i just bought a class 10 and figured it would be a great time to wipe everything (factory reset) and load up cyanogenmod's latest froyo build. No nandroid, no backup, i want to start from scratch.

1. Do i need to partition the sd card before flashing the new rom, like i did when i first loaded apps2sd (like i did when loading up donut)? I'm wondering since it's been built in to stock roms since eclair. I've never used amon ra. The last time i just followed the wiki article.

2. Any tips since i'm starting all from new?

3. When was the war of 1812

Htc Nexus One - Resizing Sdcard Partition

I did it so long ago i am just lacking a little confidence to do resize with out some support. I am an app addict and first did a 512mb but i keep running out of space. Can i go up to 1gb?

What Cyan Build Is Your N1 Running?

I was wondering what build of cyan everyone was running. Do you all upgrade to the latest "stable" build. Or do you just run until you see a new build that has something you like. I'm currently running 5. 05. 3 with a2sd and it's all good. I saw someone was running 5. 06 but i can't find that

Cyan - Install Without Unlocking The Bootloader

I was wondering if it was necessary to unlock the bootloader or if i can root without doing so? And if this is possible, do i lose any extra functionality if i had done it with the method of unlocking the bootloader?

I'm getting my nexus one today, and i'm going to install cyan right off the bat. Also, i'm not sure if i'm being too finicky, i just kind of wanted to keep the warranty in tact. But if i root, i will still void my warranty right? In which case, should i just unlock the bootloader?

Cyan Cache Or Temp Files Storage

I love cyan on my n1 but i'm having a small problem with apps like my bank of america app. It wont remember my username login, or the device, so i have to enter login, secret question answer, and then hit remember device, then my password. Takes way to long. It used to remember all that and password was all i needed. Web sites remember auto logins though. So what will fix the bofa thing?

G1, Rooting, Rom Flashing Question

I purchased a phone that has already been rooted and has cyanogens froyo 2. 2 on it, dont get me wrong its a great rom, i was just hoping for something a little bit faster, such as superd 1. 11 , so i guess my question is in order to flash this new rom, is all i need to do place the new rom i downloaded as update.zip in the root folder of my sd card then restart the phone holding the home and end keys simultaneously? Do i need to delete the previous rom files or anything?

Does Flashing Rom Affect The 3g Function?

I did quite a few times' flashing between the google rom, cynageon rom and desire rom. Just for testing and fun. But after last week, i find that the 3g network is not working good. It's simply showing no 3g network icon at all, or not connecting when the icon is there, until i change location or reboot. Just wondering if flashing has anything to do with this, thanks

Games - Pacman Game - Flashing

I had a g1 before with 1. 6 and ran pacman with no problems. Sadly my g1 was stolen in cambodia. I live in vietnam so i bought another one in the usa and had to wait a month for a friend to bring it over. It came with 1. 1 so i had to upgrage to 1. 5 then upgrade again to 1. 6 (is this the correct way to do it?) But now when i installed the pacman game it works fine but the whole game flashes. Did not do this before. How do i fix it? I already reinstalled it and even downloaded another pacman file. Stll flashes.

Flashing Samsung Epic To Cricket With Wifi

I'm buying a samsung epic 4g and want to get it flashed to my cricket account and i have some questions about wifi-tethering and mms. First, i am new to the android world so please forgive my ignorance in advance. Id like to enable the free wifi-tether option on my epic so i can connect my laptop to the internet via the phones wifi-hotspot capability. As i understand it, this feature is disabled in this phone by default with cricket. What is the best/easiest method for enabling free wifi-tether with cricket, and should i do this before or after i have cricket flash the phone to their system?

I'd also like to enable mms messaging as i've heard others have done with their epic and cricket, but have no idea how to do this. How is this done? Again, should this be done before or after the flash to cricket?

My concern is that i'll mess up the cricket flash by rooting the phone and enabling the free wifi-tether. Is this a possibility? I'm just too unfamiliar with how it all works so any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Fyi, i am a coder and have fairly decent knowledge of high-end programming so understanding the code and technical details shouldn't be an issue. *

Motorola Droid - Can Repetitive Rom Flashing Damage Chips

I just recall back in "the old days" (-about 1994 lol) about how it was either a general consensus or simply an unfounded rumor that flashing desktop bios chips could damage them, rendering the mobo useless.

Any truth to that, then or now?

Sprint Htc Hero - Flashing To Custom Rom - Hard Reset

I've had windows mobile forever prior to getting my hero. I've read all over trying to find this answer and i thought i found it at one point but it was a little while ago and i wasn't ready to root and flash and so forth.

My question is: when you install a custom rom on an android phone, does it hard reset your phone, or in other words does it wipe everything so you have to start over installing apps and such? I thought i read that it did not wipe everything but just want to be clear before i jump in.

Motorola Droid - Failed Flashing Sprecovery With Rsd Lite / Where To Start Troubleshooting This

Following the instructions found elsewhere for flashing sprecovery for 2. 1 using rsd lite, i have installed the 64-bit usb drivers (i'm running vista 64) and i have installed the latest rsd lite, v4. 6. I enabled usb debugging on my droid earlier today.

I booted the phone while pressing up on the d-pad and i saw what i was supposed to see. Rsd lite saw my droid. I selected the correct file and hit start, but it failed immediately. No progress whatsoever, just an immediate fail.

Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this? This is my first attempt at this, so i don't really know what else to look for.

Image On Sd Card

I am going to be saving some jpeg images to the sdcard and i don't know the best way to get those images back off, one at a time. They will be in a folder named /sdcard/images/ i will just need one image at a time, so this folder will act more as a cache of images pulled from the web that will be used in the application. Therefore, i can't just put them in the res/drawable folder because i won't know which images they are beforehand.
