Mucked Up Notifications/Volume--Start Fresh?

Hello All,

I think I've installed one too many Cab files, and I've mucked things up pretty good. I lost the notification/battery/volume slide-out menu after installing a cab that was supposed to give a % remaining for the battery. Uninstalling didn't help. Is it time to flash the rom? If so, do I want to flash it to the Sprint original rom (is there any repercussions) or do I want some other rom (is there some benefit? Detriment?). Which rom do I want?

I appreciate any help you can provide.

you can hard reset and that will erase everything and make it like brand new. or you can flash the new sprint rom or a custom rom. that will also erase everything on your phone, so just make sure you back up your contacts and stuff with something like Microsoft MyPhone first. Look around in the Upgrade section and see if there's any custom roms you like.

Re: Mucked Up Notifications/Volume--Start Fresh?

I guess I'm wondering what the benefit of a custom rom is--does it make things run faster? Provide more features? I see it makes it look different, but beyond the aesthetics, is there any reason to go through the installation?

Also, I imagine a hard reset would put me back to 6.1--or would I go back to 6.5?

Thanks for your help!

hard reset doesn't change your rom, it just erases everything and makes it like new, like it was before you started installing or adding or changing anything.
yes...custom roms are all the things you mentioned. just try them out. it only takes a few minutes to flash it to your phone. if you don't like any custom roms, then you can just go back to the stock rom.

I really appreciate your help, razorloves. This is all a bit confusing to me. Do you have a recommended tutorial/rom?

there are a lot of benefits to custom roms...as far as which one is the best? thats up to you in what features you want. BUT BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, READ, READ, READ. get all the info you can and make sure you have an idea of what your doing....and make sure you Unlock your phone first... not trying to sound harsh, just save you some headaches...

if you dont want to go that far quite yet you can upgrade to the Sprint 6.5 update...people seem to love it..
