1) format your memory card u can also delete by using partition tool then create this again

    Label: Android-SD

    Create as: Primary

    File System: Fat32

    Partition size: as much as you want!

then copy ROM file in

clockworkmod -> backup -> 2010-01-01.00.00.09  folder.... it works

swapper will not work because we have created only ext2 partition ... Swpper work has to be done if we have the ext3 and Linux partition.... 

    1st partition:

    Label: Android-SD

    Create as: Primary

    File System: Fat32

    Partition size: as much as you want!

    2nd partition:

    Label: Android-EXT3 (2nd partition is for EXT which you can use for A2SD or Link2SD)

    Create as: Primary

    File System: EXT3 (be it a custom kernel or ROM with EXT4 support, use EXT3 still -play safe! )

    Partition size: MIN: 256 MB MAX: 1024MB (1GB)

    3rd partition:

    Label: (do not put anything)

    Create as: Primary

    File System: Linux Swap

    Partition size: MIN: 32MB MAX: 1024MB(1GB) RECOMMENDED: 256MB

Congratulation for doing a great job for Alcatel 918n, I am overwhelmed after I have installed the OS.

I have Three request for you, could you please accept my request and update with a new rom

1. Making the Mod with Swap and Int2EXT

2. Change the calling Screen, I really dont like it.

3. Please use Holo Launcher then the Sony Launcher, it really look awesome and more ICS-ish.

Hope to get one more update from you in near future.

is your device alcatel 918N??

Yes My friend, I am using an IDEA ID 918(Alcatel OT 918N)

I did a clean installation.

Let me describe you the process.

I partitioned my microSD card as 6.4 GB Fat32 and 1 GB as ext2

Placed the files to the location as you mentioned.

Did a data wipe, cache wipe and Delvik cache wipe.

Restored the phone and restarted.

Some time it comes up fine and after few days with a restart it starts creating proble.

Some time I get lot of FC, I restart the Phone 4-5 times, and still get the error. Some time boot screen gets a loop.

I like this ROM a lot, and want to keep it, but feel very sad once it crusher. Do you get the same problem.

I am using a Class 4 memory card. will that be an issue?

Thanks a lot once again. I have followed the configuration you mentioned. It seems to be stable now. I am thinking of trying the tool you informed to do some modification. Let me know if you have created the Super Duper Rom. I am eagerly waiting for it. :)

Thanks for this, all of the previous comments helped alot for me to make this work, very nice!

P.S.

I get "error 498 from from playstore" even if i did install v 3.10.10 w/c you suggested, anyway this is just minor, thanks.

Error 498 usually happens for cache, clearing cache will resolve the issue. You can try Cache Fixer, and increase the cache memory. :)

Hello, I was wondering which partition I should follow. The one that came with the instructions wrote to make 2 partitions, a Fat32 and an Ext2. But following the tread it was then shown that there were 3 partitions made, a Fat32, an Ext3 and the Linux Swap. I just got confused. Oh and I just recently completed the steps to install the custom rom and I find my phone, Alcatel OT 918n, to be stuck at the welcome screen for quite a long time. Is it suppose to be like this? As of now the phone has not gone beyond the welcome screen.

I thought Cache Fixer might help, however its not. Can anyone advise any other way to bypass error 498 on this Rom. I am not able to download any files that has more then 2 mb in size. This Rom is excellent, but missing many apps from the market. Please help  :facepalm:
