    I'll have to give this a try. The current GB-based ROMs are just way too buggy to be useful day-to-day. Most of the Froyo-based ROMs are 2.2.1, which means they have a serious SMS bug in them that was patched quite awhile ago by Google (2.2.2).

    Thanks.

    yea, i don't want to face the knife. what i meant by 'is it worth it' was should i try flashing the same download again or delete the original and re-download. charging the phone now, getting ready for attempt #2

    After fumbling through just about every GB rom on this site, I finally came back to the magicians hat.

    After 2 years out of engineering work, I finally got a engineering job and need something stable.......I've been losing data, can't answer calls randomly, and just need something stable.
    Archived rom my @$$.

    thanks

    thanks guys for the continued compliments its sure appreciated and im sure gflam feels the same way. we worked hard to make this the most stable and different rom out there.
    and from the research i have done i believe we had the first 2.2.2 rom out for any device.
    We did a lot of firsts. and i worked hard on the updater too bad we never used it :)
    at least we did use the notifications some which gflam got working.

    I have never had a problem on the rom its been on my droid since release.
    and i was happy when i tried netflix and it worked without any problems.

    just want you to know it wasnt droid forums doing to archive this rom it was me causing that to be done. I was very unhappy about things at that time and did pretty much everything i could to kill this rom. problem is its just to good to die :)

    I hope people continue to enjoy it.

    and i have to say to donate to chizzle if you feel the need.
    ok i said it take the knife away now.

    Thanks Eagle, If anyone is really interested please donate to your favorite charity on my behalf... Anyone need help feel free to post or PM me. This Rom is the best out there and just like you guys i went the hard way to understand that...
    By the way: 12 day since Sourcery has been on my server and it has almost 200 downloads.. pretty good for an archived rom..

    Aahhhhh....I get it now! 10char :) ...errr, I think I do...

    ..@Eagles knife comment: LMAO

    But I have to agree, its worth trying. I ended up rebooting between each install. Then I had to let the phone sit for an hour or two while all my apps were downloaded and installed (all by themselves) - which, btw, stock never did for me since the first time I rooted a year ago (and 2 phones ago) :( ... once I get Sourcery fine tuned (which is actually kinda fun) its a beast. ...that is, done tuned to ur liking and ur specific phone.

    attempt #2 failed. i think i will try DL thru wifi as suggested. trying to open gmail i got a FC. i get a constant message saying 'android.process.acore has failed'. when installing should i reboot after flashing 2.0 and 2.2 and before flashing apps. i've been flashing all 3 before rebooting. thanks for the help

    Are you by chance installing a kernel as well? If so I've seen that error with a kernel that's not compatible with a rom.

    Either way I would move the rom zips over to the sd card via the mounted usb. Safest way to get clean zip files to the phone.

    The Right way to install this Rom is to download all three to the sd and flash all before boot. I will fix the OP to further emphasize it.

    Am I reading this thread correctly? This mod is no longer being developed?

    That has been the case for the last couple of month. This Rom is not being developed but is Supported.

    Just installed. Quite simple. So far, it looks quite good. The options available are quite nice - I was able to install a Slayher kernel with ease. I'm coming from CyanogenMod because I was having lots of hanging and lagging problems. Fingers crossed that Sourcery runs more smoothly.

    No, I installed deprimeds kernel which was working on CM6.
