    It was sitting in the Droid Hacks forum instead of the Android ROMs section.

    This allows selection of 2.0.1 or 2.1 launcher, include multitouch maps, browser, gallery.

    The installer allows selecting many theming options as well as which apps to ADD or REMOVE. Personally I chose not to remove "Email" as I don't know how to get to it otherwise ;) You can also select the standard font or the "Droid" font. I tried it. Reinstalled without after (it's quaint but not easily readable while driving!)

    The theme is Smoked Glass (your choice, full theme or mostly themed during install), choice of launcher, and choice of whether to import /Data (yes if not coming from 2.1) or wipe cache (never hurts when changing things.)

    The kernel is based on 2.6.29 adamz. WiFi tether is included.

    Disclaimer: I am a user for a total of one hour. I had nothing to do with creating it. I'm only mentioning it here because it's a GREAT Android ROM and deserves its place in the sun.

    Well...

    The theme and all it includes, are beautiful, though after about 30 min running the ROM, it decided to send my phone into continuous reboot cycle for the next couple hours. Tried re-installing, this did no good, it also made my phone become quite hot.

    I'm a newbie, so please take this as just an attempt at helpful advice.

    Try wiping /DATA and clearing the cache. Then reflash (install) the image.

    If that doesn't work, take another ROM... flash it... then flash back to this one. (DroidMod is a fine one. The only thing it will leave behind is the DMUpdater application...)

    If this works... please post... and if it doesn't... please post. Somewhere days or years down the road your success or failure will help someone else.

    Cheers

    Nope

    Still the same issue as prior, it gets to "Preparing SD card" and reboots, there also seems to be an issue with the ROM Unmounting my SD card on it's own, the one time I had it running for a bit, many of my apps which require S card kept saying app can not run without an SD card.:motdroidvert:

    Also

    DM works fine, Beast and Beauty both work fine so it has to be something in this ROM.

    @gryphon D

    did you do a complete wipe? i had problems installing this rom like you but i did a complete wipe and i got it up and running. the dev said there is an issue with the sdcard and this rom.
    unfortunately i had to download all my apps again and couldn't save any ringtones or themes with this rom. the dev suggested i get a new and better sdcard. i will do that once the 32gb sdcard comes out.
    hope this helps.

    Well...

    Sadly, even with the new kernel, I am running into the same issue. Even after wiping, it just will not get passed "Preparing SD card" and loops back to booting up.:motdroidvert:

    I have bad problems with adamz's kernel and posted about it many times on alldroid but it was never changed, I think a kernel up to 800mhz was all that was given to help =(.

    Personally I tried 5.01 and what I did was use adb and format SYSTEM, DATA, and CACHE.

    Installed the rom went through all the prompts..etc. Then instead of rebooting I had chevy's kernel in update.zip format waiting in the /sdcard dir and I just did allow update.zip install update.zip to use his kernel instead and it's been all peaches and cream since haha

    If you have boot loops, it's probably a kernel issue. maybe you are clocked to high at default? or your phone can't handle the different voltages in the kernels. I know adamz was the first kernel I had problems with boot loops with and first I know specifically mentioned lowering voltage.....

    I get the Motorola M, the start up screen and then re boot. Then the phone goes black, get the Motorola M and it loops all over again. I cant even get the phone to boot. Any help would be appreciated.
