    What's New - This is an ESE81 2.1 ROM - Built From Source :icon_ banana:

    0. Thanks to Topsy/Sniffle/bootdscoob in no particular order for their help :) :)
    1. Helix Launcher2 not supported yet
    2. Certain apps (Maps/Pandora) removed - can be downloaded from the market, also as themed versions below
    3. All busybox commands properly linked
    4. Kernels now includes TUN
    5. Modified framework to work with PulldownEditor
    6. Nexus LWP will be less intensive on the CPU, which means less heat (cuts cpu usage almost in half; credit to ReverendYo/ChevyNo1)
    7. Including options for different colors on Nexus LWP
    8. Starfield wallpaper is also gone, as it was previously in /system
    9. Now including a /data partition in the nandroid. Now included is the Wifi-Tether app pre8

    Note on baseband 3P: I mistakenly stated that my ROM included this when it does not. You will still have to use t3thSteve's update.zip:

    AllDroid, OP here

    Also - if you had downloaded earlier and are getting a Facebook sync error, or an error from Skype Mobile, an update.zip file is at the top of pg. 14 to fix that issue.


    To Wipe Or Not To Wipe

    If you are coming from 2.0.1, you MUST data wipe - if you do not, you WILL have problems. If you are coming from any of my 2.1 ROMS (2.x versions) you should be OK without wiping. However, a few notes about this version (2.2):

    1. Maps/Pandora is now removed from /system. This means if you are running a previous version of my ROM and any/all of these are still in /system, you will have files stranded in /data when you flash this ROM. This only seems to be a problem with Maps; the other two seem to still be able to be installed from the market. There is a process documented to resolve the maps issue. Right at the top of this page. Maps will now prompt you to login, and you should get an alert in your notification bar. If your browser cannot lock into your location, go into Settings -> Location -> Use Wireless Networks - the browser relies on cell towers and not GPS.

    2. If you do choose to NOT wipe, simply de-select the data partition when entering the Advanced Restore menu in SPRecovery. This does mean you will not get the Helix Launchers, but they can be installed from the market.

    3. If the kernel is a problem, you will get stuck on the 'M' while booting up. In this case, flash a lower kernel AFTER the ROM.

    This build comes with the 1.0Ghz low voltage kernel; you can change that if you wish with the kernels I've also listed. If you do NOT want to lose the current kernel you are running, simply de-select the boot partition in the Advanced Nandroid Restore menu.

    Simply Stunning v3.0 ESE81 Nandroid

    Stock Theme Patcher (update.zip) - Will revert to 3-screen Launcher as well

    Remove extra android keyboard (may cause predictive text errors)

    Fix for Yahoo Email (update.zip format)

    Nexus LWP Color Options - update.zip format

    Nexus-Blue.zip
    Nexus-Green.zip
    Nexus-Original.zip
    Nexus-Red.zip
    Nexus-Yellow.zip

    Additional Kernels (update.zip format):

    All My Other Kernels



    Nandroid Installation Instructions:

    -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!

    If you de-select the data /partition in Advanced Nandroid Restore, your data is safe and will not be touched!


    Base:


    ESE81


    What's Inside the Box:


    -Overclocked Kernel with seven slots allows clocking of 125-1000 MHz in mixed steps (credit to ChevyNo1)
    - Check the 'other kernels' link if you want a different speed, or a 5-slot kernel
    - Supports TempMonitor
    - The base 1.0G kernel has NO voltage increase over stock
    - These kernels ALSO include the STOCK 550Mhz slot, and the kernels DEFAULT 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 (white notification text thanks to mjones)
    -2.1 Glassed News and Weather App (credit to ChevyNo1)
    -2.1 Optimized Live Wallpapers (less CPU usage = less heat)
    -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)
    -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:


    SetCPU - not included as it is a paid Market app

    Glassed Facebook (credit to ChevyNo1) - update.zip - may cause future update issues
    Glassed Pandora (credit to ChevyNo1) - update.zip - may cause future update issues


    Bugs:


    -Sometimes the auto-brightness does not work if your phone has just rebooted. Simply pressing the power button twice will fix it.
    -In the pulldown, the Market information is still black, making it hard to read - working on this


    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

    I would really like to see your ROMs added to ROM manager. It would make life much easier :)

    Anyone else getting Market Force closes? Right at the end of each download, before it starts installing, I get a force close.

    Coming from SS v2.2. No data wipe.

    Now that I have built from source - I plan on digging into the launcher, so I do see that as a distinct possibility!

    One question I have is this. Does the themes that were made for ESE53 going to work without changing anything? Also assuming that the framework will theme without a hitch. Going to load this and mess around with it. Thanks to all involved to get us something new.

    ;) Let me know what you think of this one - as it IS built from source, I expect to have more issues than normal for my ROMS

    Yeah, its a minor thing. But I really love it, not necessarily essential though.

    what program do you guys use to pack up the system.tar file that is in the nandroid backup? Reason i ask is that like to unpack the system.zip file (for the update.zip methods) and delete the system .apk files that i don't want so i don't have to worry about doing that once the phone boots up.. The reason i ask is that when i repack them for the "update.zip" files they work just fine but when i repack a system.tar file from a nandroid backup i get an "error 28" in sprecovery and the restore fails.. thanks for the help if you can!

    Yea, you can't do that with a nandroid backup, as then you have modified the md5. You're better off to just install it, then remove the apks ...
