Tutorial – Install SensatioN ROM

How do I install SensatioN ?

When you want to install SensatioN, you will find yourself in one of the following situations: you have a stock rom on your phone. You have another custom rom or you already have sensation installed. In the following topic I will discuss all of the above situations.

1. From stock to SensatioN

In this case, the procedure to install will take a little longer but it’s nothing complicated. We will need to install a custom kernel with odin, before you ca install sensation rom.

The first thing you have to do, is to download sensation rom and copy it on the root of your sd-card.
Download odin and syiah kernel.
Unpack Odin on desktop and copy syiah into it’s folder. Do not unpack the kernel from .tar.
Install samsung drivers for your phone in case you didn’t. Download here.
Open Odin1.85, click on the pda button amd select siyah kernel. Leave everything else untouched. Make sure bootloader update and repartition are not checked.
Connect you phone in Download mode. In order to enter in download mode, follow these steps: a. Shut down you phone.
b.Press and hold Vol Down+ Home + Power until phone starts in dowload mode.
If odin will recognize the phone, then you go ahead and flash the kernel.
Your phone will reboot now. Given the fact that you might have an older android (gb) the phone will stuck at samsung logo. Pull out the battery to shut it down.

Start the phone in recovery mode (Hold Vol Up + Home + Power until phone start in CWM).
Now select wipe data/factory reset. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU WILL LOOSE ALL YOUR DATA (but not the files from the SD-CARD).
Navigate to Install Zip from SD-CARD
Choose Zip from Internal SD-CARD.
Scroll down and choose SensatioN-ROM for installation. You will have to wait for a few minutes, until you installation finishes.
Reboot your phone and configure your fresh SensatioN ROM.

2. If you already have a Custom ROM installed, then you don’t have to flash the kernel with Odin. If you have SensatioN ROM 3, or another ICS ROM, you can flash the SensatioN ROM without wiping data. If you will encounter problems after flashing the ROM, then you will have to reflash the ROM, but this time wiping the data from your phone.

Start the phone in recovery mode (Hold Vol Up + Home + Power until phone start in CWM).
Now select wipe data/factory reset. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU WILL LOOSE ALL YOUR DATA (but not the files from the SD-CARD).
Navigate to Install Zip from SD-CARD
Choose Zip from Internal SD-CARD.
Scroll down and choose SensatioN-ROM for installation. You will have to wait for a few minutes, until you installation finishes.
Reboot your phone and configure your fresh SensatioN ROM.
