What is the purpose of this Rom?
This rom really came about for two reasons. First: Until now, only two roms have been released for the D2G, both of which came out before there was an SBF. Team Defuse's Fission 2.4.3 and the Deodexed Blur (2.4.29) rom's only flash two system folders, app and frameworks. This wasn't a problem at the time because everybody was flashing those over stock D2G and all the other system files remained intact.
The Rom-er is a helpful tool, but it does present us with a new problem: The only ways back to Stock D2G, or Fission for that matter are to restore a Nandroid or Flash the SBF. Unfortunately there have been a few people that have either forgotten to make a Nandroid or accidentally deleted it. If you flash either of the currently available D2G Roms over a D2 Rom, you will get boot loop.
The second use of this rom is to fix bluetooth when running the D2G_Romer.zip with a D2 Rom. I'm pretty confident that the isolated issues people are having starting bluetooth are related to not having the 2.4.330 OTA. This complete rom, flashes the updated radio. If you never got the OTA, this will get you updated.
Flash this "ROM" at your own risk, neither I, nor droidforums.net, nor any other member of Get~R~Done are respondible should you brick your phone.

Bloatware Script Instructions

Some of the icons will be stuck in the drawer until you reboot.Code:$su #bloat -auto
To put all the bloatware back, type those commands again. For a complete list of apps included in the bloatware script see the full thread HERE.
The 2.4.330 BlurContacts.apk suffered a deodexing issue causing it to close whenever trying to open a contact...it would call them, but not allow for editing (thanks helizus for pointing that out). If the file you downloaded does not say "2.4.29apks" in the name, you will suffer from this issue. In the short run, as a quick fix, the download link includes all the 2.4.29 system apps. An updated ROM is in the works to include 2.4.330 apks with the old BlurContacts.apk only. It will be posted later this evening.
The following linked ROM includes all 2.4.330 apks except for BlurContacts.apk. It will remain in beta until we have a few confirmations of success.
