    If you currently have a version of SS running on your Droid now, you're probably wondering what you get in this upgrade. Here is what is new:


    1. A new kernel - still 10 slots, 1.25 Ghz max, but now includes a stock 550 slot. Also defaults to 550 until modified by SetCPU, etc.
    2. Reskinned apps to match the blue/glass theme better: Browser/Contacts/News/Gmail/Launcher/Mms/Settings/Market/Youtube
    3. 2.1 Music app
    4. A free market Live Wallpaper (Starfield)
    5. New framework that fixes the automatic unlocking of phone when keyboard is slid open. (ALL credit to Greek35T for this)
    6. Keyboard backlight also works (but no auto-brightness; see additional links below)

    Since the update.zip ONLY contains the updates, it is small and installs quickly, leaving all your data intact.


    Download Links For Existing Users of my ROM:


    - Simply Stunning v1.0.3 Update.zip
    - Megaupload Mirror

    NOTE - If you are running the 2.1 launcher in a previous version of SS - it is now gone, which means you will have to reset your home screen widgets and icons.


    Download Links For First Time Users of my ROM:


    - Simply Stunning v1.0.3 Nandroid
    - Megaupload Mirror

    NOTE: There is a bug in the launcher where you'll see no icons when it first boots up. Swipe one screen left and they are there. Working on this currently.

    If you are coming from 2.0.1, you MUST data wipe - if you do not, you WILL have problems

    update.zip Installation Instructions:

    Copy the update.zip to the root of your sdcard
    Reboot into recovery mode
    Install
    Allow update.zip
    Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    Reboot
    Your data is safe and will not be touched!


    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
    -Backup/Restore
    -Advanced Nandroid Restore
    -Choose backup (select the ROM)
    -Perform Restore
    -Done!

    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!



    Base:


    Greek35T's Version 1 ROM (he has done an amazing job of producing these base ROM's, all credit goes to him)


    Added:


    -Overclocked Kernel with TEN slots allows clocking of 125-1250 MHz in mixed steps (credit to ChevyNo1)
    - This kernel also includes all 2.6.32 backport patches (soft keyboard/light-sensor/brightness)
    - Now supports TempMonitor!
    - Based on sholes latest kernel source + my slot patches
    - 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.


    -Corporate Calendar
    -2.1 Desk Clock
    -2.1 Keyboard with voice input
    -2.1 Gallery 3D, MultiTouch
    -2.1 Music App
    -2.1 Glassed News and Weather App (credit to ChevyNo1)
    -2.1 Live Wallpapers Including Working Nexus (credit to koush)
    -2.0.1 5-screen Launcher (credit to xeudoxus)
    -HQ YouTube Default Tweak (credit to xeudoxus)
    -HQ Video Recording Tweak (credit to Fede)
    -Version Information In Settings > About Phone
    -Disabled OTA Updates
    -Disabled default ring delay of 3 seconds (credit to ChevyNo1)
    -*Battery Saver* Wifi Scans Increased to 30 seconds (credit to ChevyNo1)
    -Version Information In Settings > About Phone
    -Completely Deodexed System (meaning easily customizable)
    -FLAC Support (credit to Kenny Root)
    -SuperUser App
    -Flash Image
    -Busybox

    -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:

    more
    head
    tail
    which
    cp
    grep
    find
    awk
    sed
    less
    wc

    Cleaned/linked the following commands which unnecessarily eat up 10MB of /system:

    ash
    chmod
    clear
    cp
    dd
    ifconfig
    kill
    printenv
    traceroute
    unzip
    vconfig
    vi
    who
    whoami



    Removed:


    -Camera Shutter Sound
    -Video Recording Sound (credit to ChevyNo1)


    Theme:


    -Smoked Glass Blue (credit to AdamZ modified by ChevyNo1)
    -Added custom status bar icons (credit to blake2050@droidforums)
    -Added extra custom status bar icons (credit to mjones1052@droidforums)
    -Progress bars changed to match blue theme (credit to ChevyNo1)
    -Clear push-icons on desktop (credit to ReverendYo - skinned from Alldroid community ROM)
    -White Clock (credit to Ohsaka)



    Installable Add-on Apps: Click To Download:



    10-slot 1.25Ghz Kernel + WIFI Module - install update.zip via SPRecovery
    Multitouch Browser (credit to t3hSteve) - topic here - NOTE - You WILL get a slightly-messed up address bar with this, AND pretty bad typing lag, which is why it's not included by default
    Stock Taskbar Patcher - update.zip install through SPRecovery
    Glass Pandora To Match Theme - push to /data/app
    Framework with working auto-brightness but no automatic kb backlight + will unlock if keyboard is slid open - Rename to framework-res.apk, push to /system/framework, reboot
    YouTube HQ Hack - push to /system/app
    Link to Greek35T's 2.1 Launcher Thread


    Recommended Apps:


    Wifi-Tether - I have personally only tested the pre3 version
    SetCPU - not included as it is a paid Market app


    Bugs:


    -Not all Live Wallpapers are interactive (others need Launcher2, not included as it's too buggy)
    -No auto-brightness - use other framework if you really need to have it
    -In-call MUTE still not working (known issue with 2.1 ROMS)

    Disclaimer:

    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

    The Linpack screenshot is with JIT enabled - 12.08 :)

    What about KB lights and auto brightness?

    Notes state that kb backlight works, but no auto brightness - separate download for that if you wish, but you will then lose the fix (by Greek) so the phone doesn't unlock when the keyboard is slid open.

    Whoot! going to flash and try this out now! You and Adamz are making it hard to stick to just one ROM lol!

    Just donated also for your awesome support and Kernel work! :icon_ banana:

    EDIT: I can't modify the Framework-res anymore with metamorph. It makes my phone reboot :(

    Thanks Jonkyu!

    Yes, I've seen this issue crop up a FEW times on the 2.1 framework - I was able to get it working by manually patching the files myself and then pushing framework while in recovery mode ...

    Might have to, I use your 1.2 ghz kernel on theirs anyways (your 1.25 ghz always runs super hot, even at lower clock speeds, in comparison)...plus unlike Adamz's latest, Terminal Emulator works on yours...also, not losing data is pretty sweet

    Hey,

    Just installed it, can't seem to get the desk clock to work? Is it a widget? I don't see it on the list.

    Thanks!

    Dumb question (I did search), but what do you mean exactly by "if running 2.0.1, wipe or you will have problems?" I did a "factory data reset" under Settings -> Privacy, but that doesn't seem to have done much, since I still have all my apps. Is that what you mean, or is there a different kind of wipe that I haven't yet read about?

    Yes .. however, I have pulled the Launcher2 from v1.0.1 and linked it, that way you can reinstall afterwards if you want:

    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download Launcher2.apk

    The other wipe is from within SPRecovery, where you wipe cache AND data ... however, if you are running fine and still have your apps, nothing to worry about

    Such a sexy ROM

    Seriously, keep up the stellar work Chevy. Your attention to detail does not go unnoticed. SS is bar none the smoothest running, fastest loading ROM I've tried yet, and without mentioning specifics, I've tried quite a few. :)

    If you do the "wipe data" in sprecovery, it also wipes your cache...you can do the wipe cache often if you choose, but it is kind of redundant...
