hey Ron can be king 77 here from the AC syndicate team here to do a video an updated video showing you how to install the latest cyanogenmod 9 rom on your samsung epic 4g it’s now in beta state so that’s that’s really good they’re making really great progress pretty much getting rid of all of the bugs I will link to the bugs in the description of the video I won’t go over them in this video so this video stayed at the current but I will go over bugs in the description of video below if you want to check those out go ahead and do so but anyways let’s go ahead and get into it so what we’re going to need to do first is obviously make sure you have a clockwork button you are routed to have clockworkmod you will need to make sure you have clockworkmod five point zero point two point seven and not acs recovery i believe some users have reported issues with acs recovery i will link to a video in the description on how to install clockworkmod 5 in case you are not on that now but anyways let’s go ahead and jump into it so once you have clockworkmod five point zero point two point seven on your device you’re going to need to click

on the link in the description of the video and once you click on the link in the description of the video it will take you to this website the official epic 4g cm9 website big shout out to all the devil you get making this possible new badal warren everyone that made this possible so big shout out to all the CM team for the epic 4g but anyways or gonna need to do is we’re going to need to download two files the rom itself and the g apps the rom itself will be right here it says CM n alpha 5 right now that will be updated very soon to beta so stay tuned for that so download the latest which will be right there any of these mirrors this any of these numbers will work you’re also going to need to download the G apps which would be the Google Apps add-on which needs to be flashed right after the rom install so that will give you market gmail etc just click on this and it will actually take you to google com it’ll take you to a search for google com it will search for the latest G apps they cannot link to it directly but so it’ll take you to this google search click on the top link and under signage about nine just click on this link right here and that will be the latest download so that would be the best way to do that so you’re going to need to download that ROM file so any of those

numbers is click on the round file and then you’re going to need to click on the other link and it will take you to the Google site go to the top website and will take you to the latest G apps so download both of those zips the ROM itself and the G apps and transfer them over to your microSD card so make sure both of those are on your phone and go back to your phone and once we are back to our phone we are going to need to get in our custom recovery so go ahead and power off your phone we’re going to need to get into clockworkmod just a heads up if you are on cm9 already you do not need to wipe so if you’re on cm9 already you do not need to follow this process that i’m going to show the process i’m showing is if you’re coming from another rom whether it be cm7 or another touch with rum or me you I miui so keep that in mind but if you’re on a cm9 alpha rom you shouldn’t need to wipe data you should just be able to just install a rom itself so keep that in mind to get in our custom

recovery press and hold volume down camera button power button all at the same time keep it held down I press and hold to the bottom backlit keys light up it should take us into our custom recovery now and it did as you can see clockworkmod five point zero point two point seven as it should be so let’s go ahead and zoom in right here on our custom recovery and now that we have our custom recovery right here what we’re going to need to do now is go ahead and scroll down and go down to backup and restore so whether you are on cm9 or not I highly recommend making a nandroid backup so do go to back them to backup and restore regardless of what your what your setup is selected and then make a nandroid backup so just hit back up so make sure you do have a nandroid backup on your device just to ensure that if anything goes wrong you can restore that back up anyways once that backup is done what we’re going to need to do now is go down to wipe data/factory reset as I said if you’re on cm9 you do not need to wipe data so keep that in mind this is only for if you’re coming from another rom so hit delete all

user data it yes it’s going to go ahead and format the data make sure you have any backups that you do need backup your contacts your apps etc whether it be with titanium backup or whatever app you like to use but once that’s done what I’m going to recommend now is go down to wipe cache partition and hit yes wipe cache so it’s going to wipe cache and I’ll go to the advanced menu and hit yes and hit wipe dalvik cache and then hit yes so it’s going to go ahead and wipe all of those for us and once done we can just hit the back arrow and then go down to install zip from sdcard so install zip from sdcard choose it from SD card and navigate to wherever that latest rom file will be it’ll be whatever you download it whatever it’s called I’ll just be the latest signage my 9 zip and select it and hit install so it’s going to go and run through the install process of the rom it will take a little bit longer than anything else what it’s going to do is go ahead and reboot it actually install the recovery needed to install the ROM and then it will reboot it’ll go back into our custom recovery it should be a newer custom recovery now and then it’ll finish the install the ROM so as you can see it will finish the install the

rom now but once it’s done don’t reboot but I will be back once it’s done alright and once the ROM is done installing as you can see it automatically rebooted my phone but we’re not done yet we still need to go back and install those G apps so I’m going to go ahead and let it boot up and once it boots up I will be back Oh as you can see very nice new signage of my 9 boot animation nice that they implemented that but as I said I will be back ok so our phone has rebooted we’re not done yet now just go ahead and reboot and hit recovery and hit ok because we’re going to need to go back into our custom recovery to finish installing the G apps add-on so keep that in mind if you don’t do this you will not have market you will not have google talk etc so all those good google apps so let this reboot into our custom recovery should go straight into it and like I said it did goes right into the custom recovery as you can see right here but we’re going to need to do now is just go to an install zip from

sdcard select that choose it from SD card and then navigate to that latest G apps add-on is called gf’s ICS a bunch of numbers zip and select it and hit yes install so that’s going to go ahead and solve the latest Google Apps add-on I don’t know if it’s going to automatically your phone like it did with the ROM install but keep that mind it will go ahead and install those all right as you can see install from sdcard complete that’s done just hit the back arrow and then just hit reboot system now so it’s going to go ahead and reboot your device and that would be it so that would be how to install the latest signs mountain and rom on your samsung epic 4g as you can see a little boot back up back into the new cm9 boot animation but that would be it so definitely be sure to check out my review video i’ll be doing a separate review I’ll link to that in the description of the video so be sure to check that out be sure to subscribe to me found me on facebook twitter and google+ all links to be in the description below and as always thanks for be sure to give this a thumbs up
