How to install:
(Note: DO NOT ATTEMPT to restore using backup/restore, you will fail/brick your phone)
(Note: This update REQUIRES sprecovery version 0.99.0b. It WILL NOT INSTALL unless you have this version installed (it will error with status 154.))
-Update to the latest sprecovery using this guide if you haven't done so already.
-Download either version 4a or 4b and place it in /sdcard
-Reboot into sprecovery and choose "install"
-Select "choose ROM from sdcard" and choose either 21apps201.rom.tgz if you downloaded version 4a, or sholes_info.rom.tgz if you downloaded version 4b. (Note: you can install version 4b at any point the future over your existing image if you want the Youtube HQ hack + Swype and you've already installed Version 4a)
-It will automatically install OVER your existing image and not erase any of your settings! (You might need to resign into Google through the market after.)
(Note: THIS ROM DOES NOT WIPE /SYSTEM If you have any apps you want to save just in case (apps installed over the market don't install to /system/app, so you don't need to worry about them), please back them up before doing so (version 4a of this ROM does not get rid of other hacks such as the Youtube high quality default hack, so be wary of that fact. Also, no need to reroot or anything.)
Credit also goes to SirPsychoS for his recovery image.
-Landscape bug in app drawer still exists.
-Weather does not display properly in clock.
-Picasa syncing only works after wipe/data.
-Gmail syncing may break after installation. (WORKAROUND: Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Menu button > Filter > All > Select the "Clear Data" option from BOTH "Gmail" and "Gmail Storage")
(Instructions on how to root/install sprecovery)
Version 4a (Everything EXCEPT Youtube HQ Hack + Swype):
Version 4b (Everything INCLUDING Swype + Youtube HQ Hack):
Also, for anyone who needs it, here's a clean 2.0.1 image with only root + busybox (use backup/restore with this image):
(Note: Version 3a and 3b will properly backup files, even if you have Version 1 or 2 installed already, no need to backup any other files)
Side-note: If you're without adb and you're trying to update your recovery image, you can download the newest .img, use ASTRO to place it in the root /sdcard directory, then use a terminal emulator like ConnectBot, or something else of the like to run:
# /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.99.0b.img
Then reboot into recovery mode and you should be good.
Second side-note: I didn't optimize anything in optipng because that's silly as most of the pngs are already optimized.
