Convert Your Epic 4G to MTD Easily with BML to MTD Conversion Utility

The last time we mentioned the Samsung Epic 4G and the MTD partition map, we talked about how you could turn your favorite ROM into an MTD ROM using a tutorial that was a little complicated, but not too difficult. However, as time goes by, things like this often become easier and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes so simple that even an amateur flasher can do it. That time is now. XDA Recognized Developer RandomKing has released a recovery-flashable update.zip that completely automates the MTD conversion process for users who are still having trouble getting this right.

With this mod, MTD hits the mainstream for flashers, and the only thing any Epic 4G owner needs to use it is the phone being setup for BML and an MTD ROM to flash to your device once the conversion has taken place. The process is a little unique however. Since you’re changing from BML to MTD, your BML ROM will cease to work, throwing the phone into a bootloop. This is actually completely normal, and part of the process. Simply pull the battery, get into recovery, and flash any MTD ROM, and all will be well. So it should be noted that you’ll also need a MTD ROM to flash to once you’re done. If you want to make your favorite ROM MTD, check out our previous story for the guide.
