Convert Your Favorite Epic 4g ROM From BML to MTD

For those who don’t know, BML and MTD are partition maps that offer tentative control over partition sizes and how space is allocated. BML is proprietary, which means it’s basically closed source. MTD is open source, and as such is generally preferred. Big thank to XDA Senior Member AproSamurai for his breakdown, which you can read here if you have any further curiosity.

Knowing the advantages of MTD over BML, XDA Senior Member The_Legendary has posted a method for any user who owns the Samsung Epic 4G to change their favorite BML ROM into a MTD ROM.

The process takes a bit and has a few time consuming steps and it is required that you make a backup before attempting, even though the process itself actually tells you to make a backup.

The requirements are easy to fulfill, so pretty much anyone can get started right away. You just have to have the following:

-Micro USB cord
-Currently on a BML rom, if you are on a MTD rom you will have to Odin back
-CWM5 you must use this to make your nandroid back up. NO ACSRECOVERY

So if you’re looking to change your favorite ROM from BML to MTD, you simply need to check out the original thread for the full instructions and download links.
