OK, so i guess since this was my first "ROM" (so to speak) it was going to be rough, but not sure why this:
since i ended up with a bad download (only thing i can guess) i flashed to stock, got locked up at the bootloader (standard error as previously reported by many in this forum) SBF'd back to stock, and then fun started:
Lost Z4Root -- not in market anymore, had to go to XDA to find Z4Root MOD (works, but not as smooth)
Lost all of my programs (some are not available in Market anymore) so have had to go through and re-load
Lost all ringtones, and now ZEDGE is not working that great..
my question is this: Is this normal, or did i just get to experience all the fun on the first one, so any after this would seem simple?
Also, is there any fix for Market? Seems to not work all the time, OR doesn't seem to have all the same programs as previously. Had seen "work-arounds" posted, but can't find them.
Thanks to MACPRO88 for the postings prior to this, otherwise i would have been totally lost
