Simply Stunning 2.0.2 Release - ESE53 2.1 - (3/9/2010)
What's New - This IS a 2.1 ROM
1. The launcher is now fully interactive with Live Wallpapers
2. The video stuttering has been fixed
3. busybox has been fixed, and all symlinks
4. sysro/sysrw are back
5. Music player not showing song in notification when pulled down - FIXED
6. Market issues have been fixed
7. Camera shutter silenced again
8. No auto-rotate on the launcher/desktop. Now only works when keyboard is slid open (side effect of new launcher)
If you are coming from 2.0.1, you MUST data wipe - if you do not, you WILL have problems. This is also a good idea if you are coming from one of my 1.0.x versions of SimplyStunning - those were not ERE/ESE builds.
If you are running any of my previous ERE/ESE builds (2.0.x), you can just restore this right over top of what you have and do NOT need to wipe.
NOTE: If you are wiping, and after rebooting it sits on the red eye for a while - be patient, as it is rebuilding the entire dalvik-cache from scratch (because this ROM is de-odexed). This means a slow first boot up, maybe 2-3 minutes. If the kernel is a problem, you will get stuck on the 'M'. This is a kernel issue usually.
If you have already fixed all of the issues I've listed above, there is nothing pressing in this update that you need.
This build comes with the 1.2Ghz kernel; you can change that if you wish with the kernels I've also listed.

Nandroid Installation Instructions:
-NO data wiping required if using 2.1 now - your settings and apps stay intact, just like update.zip
-It is strongly suggested to nandroid-backup your current ROM before doing anything!
-Extract the files from the archive using WinRAR or a similar program
-Place the extracted folder (the ROM) into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard
-Reboot into recovery mode
-Advanced Nandroid Restore
-Choose backup (select the ROM)
Do not worry that it shows 'data' as automatically being selected. It doesn't matter, as no data partition is in this nandroid backup.
Your data is safe and will not be touched!
What's Inside the Box:
-Overclocked Kernel with five slots allows clocking of 125-1200 MHz in mixed steps (credit to ChevyNo1)
-Check the 'other kernels' link if you want different speeds, or a 10-slot kernel
- Supports TempMonitor
- I have spent many hours tweaking this kernel to run at the lowest possible voltage (no significant increase until 1100Mhz)
- With the 2.0.1 launcher, my testing + real world use has been rock solid, no reboots, no FC's, even @ 1.25Ghz
- This is a new kernel from previous releases that should run cooler, therefore more stable. This ALSO includes the STOCK
- 550Mhz slot, and the kernel DEFAULTS to that speed, until you use an app like SetCPU.

-2.1 Keyboard with voice input
-2.1 Gallery 3D, MultiTouch

-Added commands sysrw/sysro for mounting /system read/write or readonly. Also note that sysro remounts read only AND performs the sync for you
-Added new Linux commands that I sorely missed:
Cleaned/linked the following commands which unnecessarily eat up 10MB of /system:
-Camera Shutter Sound
-Video Recording Sound (credit to ChevyNo1)
-Smoked Glass Blue (credit to AdamZ modified by ChevyNo1)
-Added custom status bar icons (credit to blake2050@droidforums)

SetCPU - not included as it is a paid Market app
-Sometimes the auto-brightness does not work if your phone has just rebooted. Simply pressing the power button twice will fix it.
-In the pulldown, the music information is still black, making it hard to read - working on this
This is an overclock ROM, therefore if you're not careful, you'll do damage. I am not responsible for any such damage, you use this of your own free will.
Enjoy, and feedback is always welcome - bugs included
