Comepletly based off of the latest DROID leak/release FRG83 Android 2.2.1
Special Thanks to P3droid and Team Black Hat for the leak!
Thread updated (11-27-10) Rom Updated (11-27-10)
This is currently a working beta. Any bugs found, if any will most likely be small and easily fixed. The rom is only in beta because I am applying small updates often instead of one big update. I also really want feedback on what people like and dislike about the rom. There is a feature request thread if you want to make a request.
This rom is no longer in beta. It has been updated to a "Stable" Release
[Latest] [Release] metiCkMod FRG83
(I removed a lot of apps, flash the addons if you want some or all of them back)

Recommendations: Don't use any root app to restore data. If you really want to restore your apps with Titanium or something like it you can do so without restoring the data that comes with the app. If you do this make sure you deselect any system apps like phone or camera.
ChevyNo1 - Index of /froyo/kernels3 - Chevyís a great dev Check out his thread!
P3droid Kernels (Be careful which kernel you choose as there are some for 2.1 and 2.2)

Clockworkmod Instructions: Place file anywhere on your sdcard, boot into recovery, select install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, and select the appropriate zip file.
SPRecovery Instructions: Rename file to update.zip, place on the root of your sdcard (meaning not in a folder on your sdcard), boot into recovery - install - Allow update.zip Installation - Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
Wipe or not? It is my recommendation that everyone wipes data & cache no matter what build they are coming from. Also, you should only use titanium to re-install apps without the data. It kinda sucks to re-enter all your info, accounts and bookmarks (especially with all these leaks) but in the end, if you run into problems you won't wonder if itís because you didn't wipe data/cache.
