Long time lurker, (honestly had nothing major to contribute, until now) first time poster.
I came from the "OG Droid" and was used to the custom ROMs out there (Bugless, CM, Sapphire, SS, etc etc). Unfortunately, since I now have a D2G, I've realized that the ROM scene for the D2G is virtually non-existent.
So, I've been working on a pseudo-ROM.
What do I mean by pseudo-ROM? Basically, it's a modified version of the stock 2.4.330 system that's been out. A few tweaks in it, of course, but nothing major. A few points on it are:
- Blur-intact ROM (I've used things like Apex and Fission, and while they're nice, too many things just flat don't work, or only sort-of work. Face it, thanks to the phone being locked down, we can't completely get rid of it.
- Bloat removed. All of the bloat is gone. Everything that's unnecessary is gone (this includes things like Backup Assistant).
- A few minor tweaks. Unfortunately, I'm not an adept programmer, so don't expect things like custom tweak menus and whatnot, but expect the system as a whole to be tweaked and optimized
Just trying to see what any interest on this might be. Please remember, this is just a bloat-stripped stock ROM with a few minor tweaks. It's nothing incredibly major, but with this, everything just "works".
BTW, for anyone who *MIGHT* recognize my name, I used to be involved in the NVIDIA driver modding scene, modding drivers for laptops (MobileForce, Google it ) before it became largely redundant for me to do so.
