    I know you have a few choices out there ... however this IS a 2.1 ROM. This is my first crack at making one. Have not included much in the way of optional programs; there are many links out there explaining how to get them. This is intended to be as basic, fast, stable, AND stunning.

    I have put the ROM together as well as compiled my own kernel for it; the only difference between this kernel and stock is the overclock ability. Also note that there are now TEN slots available! For the average user that's overkill; the intent was to have enough slots to keep everyone happy, as everyone has their ideal setup.

    If I have missed giving credit where credit is due, it was an oversight - please correct me and I will make it right.

    Update 2/18/10 - after HOURS AND HOURS of testing every little thing that could be causing these reboots, and I mean rebuilding the kernel and all - I've come to this conclusion:

    The 2.1 launcher SUCKS!!!

    Every situation where I am able to guarantee myself a crash, does NOT crash on the 2.0.1 launcher. I have tried AdamZ's launcher; on 2.1 it simply has the same issues.

    That being said - I am not actively working on patching Launcher2. I would rather continue to improve on the ROM, using the 2.0.1 launcher. I will continue to include the 2.1, but before you post up a bug regarding FC's / reboots, try to duplicate on the 2.0.1 launcher. If it still fails, then let me know and I will take a look. I of course will continue to search for answers for this, but I'm not in a position to get into the coding of the apk itself (at least right now).

    Using the 2.0.1 launcher I have great results, even at 1.2Ghz.


    I also want to point out for the folks wanting a themeless ROM ... since the base of this ROM is really Greek35T's from here:

    http://www.alldroid.org/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=2145

    You can use his ROM, and then nandroid-install my OC kernel + Wifi. You'll get the stock theme. You won't get the additional commands I added, ie more, less, sysrw, etc. Since many of you do NOT like the theme I put together, that is your alternative. You'll also have to install Wifi-tethering manually, link here: http://android-wifi-tether.googlecode.com/files/wireless_tether_2_0-pre3_eclair.apk


    You'll notice this is a bit larger of a download than you might be used to ... that's because of the dalvik cache which I purposely let do it's work. The result is a very fast bootup right from the get-go. If you'd rather have one without for a smaller download and slow boot up (one-time only), let me know.

    I just so happen to have gotten a spare Droid last week. Trying this on the new device... will post with feedback soon. I am currently running Sholes 2.0.3 on my main Droid.

    P.S. I'm excited about this! Live Wallpapers! Ahh!

    Got this running on the spare Droid...

    Really fast start-up, took a while to d/l, but that's ok!

    Live Wallpapers work flawlessly... no FC's so far, setting up my home screens and stuff now.

    I like that the 2.1 App Drawer doesn't give me problems on this ROM like it does with non-2.1 roms, or when you install the 2.1 Launcher.apk.

    Wonderful so far... thank you for this!

    Note, while it's not a big deal to me (as I don't *need* the feature to use my device), there's no multi-touch gallery or browser. Google Maps has it, of course, because of version 4.0. Perhaps this could be a request addition in the next release of this ROM?~

    quick quesiton regarding backing your phone.

    - so after you do a back up
    - then you wipe the phone
    - restore with the new ROM

    how do you get the data back then from what you have? just restore the data portion?

    no multitouch browser yet?

    Not sure if you have to wipe with this ROM, I didn't have to wipe when installing the SMoked Glass ROM. I'd hate to have to download all my apps again.

    Answer please? You said you created your own kernel did you use the ProcTemp hack/code from Taz's kernels?

    Also if anyone's tried the ROM yet has anyone tried using a 2.0.1 theme (i.e. Smoked Glass) and installing via MetaMorph? Any issues?

    What I like is the overclocking and the live wallpapers. I would like to echo the desires of some of the alldroid members and request a version with (or an option for) the standard theme and the core apps. I'd even opt for the 2.01 launcher, personally, until the landscape mode is working properly.

    Very nice work, though. This is the second 2.1 I installed today and this one was much more stable for me.

    Seems a lot faster then smoked glass! First thing I noticed is that the timeout for keyboard and quick launch buttons is not very long. Not a big fan of the notifaction bar icons, but metamorph could take care of that. Off to the movies can't wait to see this blow up!

    This might be naive, because I have no idea how to skin. Can you put a version of this in just default android skin? More or so I don't like smoke glass theme.
