    Hi, will this work without CWM? Mine is GTI9000 and wants to install this OS. It looks really good.

      Nope. You will have to install cwm first. Follow the guide, each step of it, and you will do good.

        Thank you Kapil. My GT-I9000 currently has 2.3.6 XWJW6. I am not able to find the correct CWM for it.

          I need help. I have installed JW4 with CF Root and then in Recovery Mode, tried installing the LeWaOS. My phone keeps restarting and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

            Flash the lewaOS ROM again. So gale flags might not work. Have you flashed it two times?

          • Naresh

            I tried flashing it 4 – 5 times and finally it was done. The features were good, but when I get a call, the phone crashes. It also crashes with other applications. Not sure if it is compatible with my phone. It is Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000, bought in Germany without contract..

            That’s okay. If you are not liking it, which is not very surprising since we have many more cool ROMs for sgs available now, better switch to a jelly bean ROM. Look here: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/tag/galaxy-s

            I like the UI and others, infact, I liked it all but the only problem with the crashes. Looking at the crashes, I flashed it again but the crash still exists. Not sure why? I want this but unfortunate…

            Try this: do a factory reset, then wipe dalvik cache under advanced and then fix permissions under advanced option of recovery. See if that helps. BTW, do not restore system apps using titanium backup or any software.

            Still the same… will try for JB ROM.. thanks for your help…

    i followed the steps but wen i flash rom
    LeWa OS it says ‘E failed to verify whole signature ‘and ‘ e signature verification failed

      You don’t have clockworkmod recovery installed. That’s why you are getting that error. Either you have not done steps 3 and 4 both, or step 4, whatever the case. If you are already on XXJW4 firmware, do step 4 only, otherwise do both steps 3 and 4.

      Please follow the instructions carefully.

    Dear, we have to install Google Apps to or not as mentioned on XDA site link given above…please reply

      Sry.. skipped to mention in steps.. you have to flash the gapps too, download the file given there with the rom, transfer it to phone, reboot to recovery and flash it after you’ve flashed the rom. No need to factory reset or anything. Simply flash gapps after you’ve done all of above.

        it’s ok…..thanks for reply
