  4. i have rom manager Cwm installed on my N3 please tell me what next to do
    I spent a lot downloading the EblakN7 ROM please tell me what next to do.

    • I know you spent a lot of mb downloading the Eblak but if you've tried all the steps above correctly and it is still not installing, don't force it, just leave it and i'll look for another higher compatible ROM suitable for your device.

    • You don't need to create the cwm at all, you just download it, and back up your existing ROM before you install this one.

      How To Backup Your Existing Rom:
      Step 1: Launch ROM Manager and tap on Reboot to Recovery. Your phone will reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery.

      Note that if booting into CWM from ROM Manager fails, you can always shut down your device, press and hold a specific combination of buttons to manually boot into CWM.

      Step 2: Using your volume up/down keys and the home/power button, navigate to backup and restore > backup to begin a complete backup of your phone’s current state. This is called creating a nandroid backup.

      Taking a nandroid backup can take up to 10-15 minutes if you have loads of data saved, so you’ll have to be a little patient.

      Step 3: That’s it! Your nandroid backup is now ready! To continue using your device, select reboot system now from the main menu.

  5. Hi I'm smmaabz, The eblak rom is fantastic, however I feel its still lacking when it comes to bbm. Pls try to do sth asap… For others who would prefer quicker solutions Google: BBMGingerbread.apk
    Personally I'd prefer one that's running on the 4.0


  7. Good day, I tried to install cwm, but I realized that after follown d prompts of an app cald mobileuncle as directed, my tecno n3 couldnt load into recovery mode. all other attempts that i made also failed including using an app cald quickboot. I've rooted my phone. any help pls?

    • Do this if you've rooted your device, just get rootexplorer from google play and install it

      go to the phone memory and click mount r/w

      goto the systemui.apk under /system/app/

      long press and tap change permissions

      check the top nine options.
      After that, your notification bar will be visible

  8. My own problem is on the bbm thing? I actually got a bbm that worked for me but I can't upgrade my bbm and i also can't download certain apps from play atore. Please help me
