Go back to stock. The custom ROMs cut some bloat that doesn't allow it to work properly. It can be stock/rooted and the boot loader can be unlocked though afaik

Hrm, tried flashing nosympathy's stock rooted rom and it wont boot with the unlocked bootloader. Odd.

Guess i have to Odin to Root66, sigh.

When I dial in *#7284# the PhoneUtil menu hangs up and is forced to stop. I am running Beans 7 and tried stock/AOSP methods for this. Thanks :)

I get the same thing running Synergy ROM. PhoneUtil briefly shows up and then crashes.


You need to be on full stock, or, at a minimum, "root66" for this to work. The custom roms have stripped out some of the necessary ingredients.

I went back to full stock rooted, did the steps, said successful, restored my Synergy. Went to look for the backup and it wasn't there. So I messed up somewhere and would like to redo it. Of course I can do the same thing but I'd like to try the AOSP method. However, the instructions are a little confusing to me. I can adb shell into the phone and run the first set, but then it says "eject" before doing the second set. Does that mean I have to type those commands into the terminal session on the phone or can I eject the phone and then reconnect it to copy and paste?

Thanks.

Eject it from the PC/unplug it. USB has to reset

Good to know. I'm still going to recommend root66 as its the lowest common denominator, so to speak. But good to know at least. Synergy and beans do not currently work. Either with the TW method or with AOSP method, as far as I've heard.

EDIT: Also post 3 finished. Tut re-written with images in-line for restoring with no backup. Note this method may make you end up stuck in roaming still on some variants. So make those backups first!
