    Hey Guys,

    So I told myself if my grades dropped I would take a break from Android. Sadly they have (a little). What does this mean for metiCkMod? I'm glad you asked. First thing, Davros is now a mod in the metiCkOne section and is officially part of the team. Although he has been unofficially for awhile. As far as the rom goes I haven't completely decided what I'm going to do yet and it kind of depends on what kind of feedback I get from you guys. I would like to leave the rom in the hands of up and coming rom devs/modders whatever you want to call it. I will give you guys all the tools you need to make a nice stable stockish rom and the tools to make a Frankenstein rom if you wanted. That would be up to you. If this turns into a community rom, updates and roms etc.. would not need to be approved by me. I will be available to a small group for assistance most of the week and once in awhile for everyone else if I'm needed.If this sounds appealing to you post it up in the thread.

    Sorry to hear about the grades. I think this is a great idea though. I am all for community. I am not a developer but am interested in theming your rom. Your rom by far is the smoothest running rom with the best battery life for my phone. I dont necessarily need all the bells and whistles but like the little touches like ad block and things of that nature.

    Interested to see where this goes and if there is anything I can do by all means let me know.

    Keep up the great work and the grades, an look forward to a great stable, working gingerbread!

    Im sad. Will you still finish your ROM with the official FRD83D release before you pass the torch?
    I do understand though. Maybe you could take back your promise to yourself to quit if grades suffer?

    Yes we are sad but he really won't be going anywhere lol

    My feelings, plan, wants, needs for metiCkMOD...... once I get a grasp of the processes and what not. Of course if this is how things go down. Nothing will change, yes the rom will go forward, until they can't any more, but metiCk's rom has been on my phone running perfectly since the day I stumbled upon it. I have alway had a current backup. Saturdays chooseing what new and next greatest rom to flash, trying them all, and come Monday morning meti's rom is back on and STABLE!

    I think I'm rambleing .....

    But I will not even change the name or the stablity, sure at first I may make mistakes. Who doesn't. I may make a theme or two but will cut back and leave that to the master Benny.

    I'm sure I'll think of more to say .....

    But I also must thank meti publicly for this and all opertunities


    LONG LIVE metiCkkMOD!

    metiCk, it's been great talking with you regarding MIUI and MMod. I'm excited to see where this will go and you've left a great guy at the helm.

    On a side note, I'd love to help when I can. Testing, whatever.

    Merry Christmas if I don't talk to you all.

    I understand where you're coming from M1...you gotta keep those grades up. Do what you have to do...real life comes first.
    Sometimes a little break is a good thing. I just hope you have enough interest left to stick around with us for a while.
    I do have to ask though...will this also affect your contributions to Miui?
    Or are you thinking you can handle Miui but not do your own thing...

    I have to thank you for your involvement here. I must've come along at the right time, cause I became a fan of yours shortly after I found this forum...and I've always loved your work.

    And congrats to you Davros!
    You are certainly deserving with the efforts you have put in for us my friend.

    MetiCk, thanks for your work and special thanks for your helpful attitude. The grades are important, school is like ur job and grades ur performance evaluation.
    You seem to enjoy development so you do it well. Good luck and have fun.

    Dang now where am i going to get the cleanest rooted stock roms on the planet? :(

    And if the m1mod goes community how is it going to achieve what it set out to do? And that is being stocky but better than plain stock threw subtle changes that are only there to improve performance and battery life.

    If it goes community every one will wanna add there pieces and the rom will become a Frankenstein which is what I thought m1mod was against.

    I just don't want m1mod to lose its roots and be just like all the other roms with more bloat than good. (no disrespect to other dev's)

    Thanks for the love guys. I have a few things I want to say before everyone worries too much.

    First thing. Davros will be basically taking over metiCkMod and handling most everything in the section. He's always been my right hand man so you shouldn't see too much of a difference in anything around here.

    Second. I'll be continuing to make stock roms available as soon as I have access to them. It usually takes an hour or two to get them done from beginning to end. It's not time consuming at all.

    Lastly. metiCkMod will continue as it is. A community rom can be a seperate rom under the section. metiCkMod is a stock/barebones rom and a community rom is usually not. At this point in time metiCkMod takes about 8 hours of building and about a day of testing. The time consuming stuff is finding out what will be added/taken out of the rom that was different from previous versions. If I were to reproduce what I did with metiCkMod v0.3 with a different base it would only take about 2 hours. Blackbar, addon zips and uploading the files take a lot of time though. So doesnt support and testing. A lot of these things Davros can do already.

    The short of it is that metiCkMod in its current state isn't going anywhere. Future work will only be better than it is now. The work will just be shared among team members.

    As Swallisa said early "It's all MIUI's fault" lol. I dont work on MIUI for this reason, besides the fact the Jamezelle doesn't really need my help

    So glad to hear this from you! I too was worried that without someone with "final say" a community mod would turn into one of those "I want to see this this & that in it" roms.im really happy that davros will be handling that role I assume w/ you.I shamefully tried BB 6 for a short while yesterday and was not impressed.hope everything goes well for you.look forward seeing the next update. also would like to see your donate button remain close by. thanks!

    Yeah ROMs are so much cleaner with a common stock base and everyone can add-on whatever they like to the common stock. I'm just at a loss as to why Bugless is so popular. It's never been good on my phones. Just a bunch-o-stuff added on by pete. This ROM has more potential, especially if people can learn how to mod it for themselves so to speak. Add-on this, remove that. There are always apps on the market for whatever you need. Need to mount sysrw or sysro without typing the whole command? There's app for that. Reboot and reboot recovery? App for that....

    Who needs scripts I guess... Just gimme a stable ROM and I can figure out the rest. Just need a lesson on modding ROM for battery life. For instance, why does UD have the best battery life on my phone?.... I'd use it but it's buggy also... anyways my $0.05....(why isn't there a cents symbol on keyboard)

    Edit: What are you in school for metick?
