    NOTE: For first-time installs, 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

    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:


    ESE53


    Added:


    -Overclocked Kernel with TEN slots allows clocking of 125-1200 MHz in mixed steps (credit to ChevyNo1)
    - 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.


    -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
    -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)



    Recommended Apps:


    Wifi-Tether
    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)


    Link to Greek35T's 2.1 Launcher Thread

    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



    This build comes with the 1.2Ghz kernel; you can change that if you wish with the kernels I've also listed.

    For those wanting to upgrade from my previous versions (1.0.x): You will need a to do a full wipe. If coming from my ERE25 build, I don't THINK you will need to do so. I am not positive however as I haven't tried it myself.

    No I'm 99% positive you don't have to do anything different if coming from ere25. I've done it a couple times...

    I had to wipe data downgrading from ese53 to ere25...but thats it I think

    And also, (I'm back on ere25 now) whenever I was using ese53, your kernels *did* OC, but did *not* fix wifi, it was still broke

    Any reason to upgrade if interactive wallpapers with a 2.01 launcher doesn't thrill you?

    Have yet to see any definitive difference besides this.

    Hi Chevy,

    Upgraded to new ROM. Have a couple of issues. 1. Unable to connect to WiFi. 2. Swype error message. I think I know how to fix Swype, but I really would like the Wifi back. Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Did the ones that installed this ROM find any major bugs yet? Currently, I have the latest SmokedGlass ROM and it has a couple of major bugs (video playing only sound and not showing actual video, reboots phone while playing music and when you plug the USB to computer, force closes when too many widgets on the screens etc.) so I'm thinking of trying this out.

    Installed on top of the ERE ROM....just did nandroid without data, and ended up perfect, with no issues so far. Nothing was changed...no missing widgets, nothing. I had to check the build# to be sure I did the right ROM install! Super smooth....thanks!

    rebooted and WiFi is back! Wiil let you know how the Swype fix goes. It involves uninstalling Swype, Simple Nandroid backup, data wipe, Nandroid restore and reinstall Swype.

    Is battery life the same then with any ESE53 build? Or are some ROMS running this build better with battery life than others?

    I have had an ERE53 ROM running for about 24 hours and it runs much cooler and has much better battery live then everything before ERE25 and a bit better then the ERE25 Roms.

    The developers recommend updating to the ERE53 Build because that is where Mororola is currently and were all the ROMS will working off.

    I am running an ERE53 Build with a Desire MM Theme and JIT enabled, and of course a Chevy 1.20 Kernel. O am Mflop 12+ consistently and Benching 150

    Thanks ChevyNo1 for an awesome ROM! I'm currently OC at 1200MHz with temps ranging from 25C-35C, using your 5-slot kernel.. not bad at all. All my usual apps, including wifi tether, work well with this version. Keep up the good work!

    I don't really use the Droid for viewing movies and such. Plus, Youtube still works on the latest SG ROM. I would like for those issues to be resolved though, but atm the latest SG ROM is good for now. Also, I didn't want to switch and then find out there are other major bugs with this one coming from Chevy. I guess I'll wait a couple of days and see if others who have installed it have any other issues with bugs.
