http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hey guys, im coming from a Galaxy Nexus, so all this is pretty weird to me. Usually the kernel is included with the ROM, but it seems like you have to worry about your kernel here. Then you have to worry about if your recovery partition has been wiped. And the dreaded EMMC bug. So im running FF18, and i need to root and install a custom ROM. I dont have Kies installed on my computer, but my device registered in Odin. Can someone give me a run through on what exactly i need to flash? If you guys have a TWRP recovery port instead of CWM5.x.x, id love to have that. Or a CWM touch recovery I (HowTos)
