Installation

If installing for the first time:

To install this ROM you will need to have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed (personally I recommend TWRP, I have had issues with restoring backups using CWM).

  1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
  2. Boot into your custom recovery
  3. Back up your stock ROM
    NOTE: For HTC One X you need to flash the boot.img manually via fastboot.
  4. Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache.
  5. Wipe System partition.
  6. Install the ROM 
  7. Install the latest CM10.1 compatible GAPPS package
  8. Reboot – First boot can take up to 5 minutes.

Note: If you are coming from another ROM and have root access, you can back up your user apps and data using Titanium and restore them once you have flashed my ROM. Just be sure to only restore user apps and data, and no system ones as you may break things.

If updating from a previous version:

  1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
  2. Boot into your custom recovery
  3. Back up your current ROM
    NOTE: For HTC One X you need to flash the boot.img manually via fastboot.
  4.  Wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache.
  5. Wipe System partition.
  6. Install the ROM 
  7. Install the latest CM10.1 compatible GAPPS package
  8. Reboot – First boot can take up to 5 minutes.

You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels. Instructions will be given by the Kernel author. I do not offer any support via XDA or Social Media for users who have flashed custom mods and kernels. But there’s plenty of friendly people to help you out.
