New ROM Manager Feature - Web Connect

Some people really prefer to browse a forum and learn about a ROM before downloading it. And some developers don't want to go through the trouble of maintaining a ROM Manifest.

What if you could click a link on a forum, in your computer's browser, and it started downloading the ROM... on your phone? Introducing ROM Manager's latest and greatest Premium feature: Web Connect.

Enough talking about it. Let's try it! You must have Froyo!

  1. Get the newest ROM Manager (at least 2.0.2.9).
  2. Click the Menu button and click Web Connect to do your one-time setup.
  3. Choose the Google account you are normally logged in with on your computer.
  4. Done!

Now, click this link on your computer to download Superuser... onto your phone:
Superuser 2.3.6.1.

Cool huh? You a developer and want to add support? Use the following to get a bit.ly link set up to your ROM using Web Connect!

Does this only support gmail.com accounts? I have a google apps account as well as a couple gmail.coms on my nexus but the webconnect only shows *gmail.com accounts

Ditto on the "Error: device is not registered" problem.

Superuser over the web push worked for me, what is it supposed to do? My phone has rebooted twice in the past hour since installing it. :(

Paul said...

Now that it is all setup, how do we push the link to the phone? Which site is currently supported?

I'm trying to install the newest version of Frankenrom, but I can't get it to push to ROM Manager - here is the link http://adrynalyne.us/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=23

All it does is download to my pc.
Phone registered but no push.

TC said...

Same, I get a download on my Mac but nothing to my phone. Registered webconnect successfully...

Jim De Arras said...

Worked for me! Incredible stock froyo, rooted

It isn't working form me either, on CM6 nightly. No error, nothing, just nothing arrives at the phone.
And the we connect activation on rom manager gave no problems either.

josebernardo said...

Ok, I take it back - it worked, but never asked anything. So when the download of CM nightly I was doing got interrupted by superuser, I didn't see it. I just saw the last dialog before flashing (wipe/backup) and thought it was fro CM6, not for the superuser I had just sent from here.

Does not work. Screen dims and then it just sits there.

Awesome App and would be cool to post comments on the ROMs I've tested however I try and log into Web Connect using my Gmail account, it says I am connected but I still cannot rate or comment through the manager. =(

Joshua said...
