    mate i can install it over the previous version?
    or not?
    Upgrading from an earlier version: (not recommended)
    - Copy the ROM ZIP to your SDCard
    - Boot into Recovery
    - Flash the ROM zip from SDCard
    - Reboot

    Does the update have the newest kernel baked in? I checked my about phone, and it appears it did, but I didn't see that in the logs... Of course, I was already using it...

    I managed update to mahdi-2.7-bacon-20140818 but before doing this I have to reflash the TWRP.I don't know why but when in the recovery the screen goes black only the hardware buttons lights up.This only happened after last updated.Once I get back in TWRP I flashed the new update and gapps 20140811.See how the new update goes for the next few days.Not a big issue on this ROM so far.

    Been hearing great things about mahdi rom and im tempted to try it since 30O killed my battery life :(

    Ive always rooted and flashed diff roms on my phones but havent taken the plunge with my opo because we need to unlock the bootloader and I didn't wanna wipe lol

    But now that i saw a mahdi rom review on xda im very intrigued

    Can anyone tell me how long the battery lasts with mahdi rom?

    Before the 30O update i was getting 18-19hr battery and 6-7 hrs screen on time and now im getting less than half plus i also want the cool hover and peek notifications :D

    Thanks :cool:

    Yes, jerryr88, me too. I saw Jared Busch's video on XDA.
    I've only done this a couple of times before, so a relative newbie.

    I intend to follow Chromium's unlocking/rooting tutorial (in this section of the forum) is that ok?
    Then follow the Mahdi installation on this thread.

    Also, I'm on ART at the moment, would I need to revert to DALVIK runtime before starting, or would that happen anyway?

    Any help/suggestions would be welcome, thanks all, John Williams :)

    Thanks for you reply skydazer. I had root access before, but the 300 update knocked it off.

    So there's that, plus the fact that I always intended to try out different ROMs, and this one looks like an obvious choice :), plus the battery drain.

    Hello skydayzer, thanks for the further help. I'm at work at the moment, so I can't do this right now.

    When I rooted before I used CWM, and have ROM Manager in my app drawer. Of course that now asks for root, I did have TWRP, as well, but that doesn't seem to be there now.
    SDK tools, and ADB, should still be on my pc.
    Are you saying that, I download from your link to my pc, or my phone?

    Thanks for the great input. John :)

    Is anyone using the r12 version of franco kernel? I'm still on stock kernel. Didn't experience reboot issue when moving to Mahdi Rom. Not sure if I need to update kernel. If so, which kernel, and why (as opposed to personal preference).
    Thanks in advanced for advice!
