    Red Rocket ROM 1.0.2

    I've had these pictures in my profile for a while and been getting a lot of messages from people asking where I got the red theme for my droid.
    Since I themed it myself, the next question was always are you going to post it up as a ROM.

    So, I went back to stock and starting working on applying my theme and adding the various hacks available, since I don't want publish just a skinned version of someone else's hard work.

    Naturally a totally original ROM is impossible, since everyone wants the 2.1 apps (me included) that others have worked hard to give us. OC'ing and wireless tether were also a must. So I'd like to first thank everyone who has made ROM's even possible to all of us Droid users and the hard work they have all put into their hacks.

    Pictures available here

    And now for the included hacks:

    Credit goes to xeudoxus for his help as I struggled to get his xultimate script
    working for these.

    Completely deodexed framework and applications
    White clock and ongoing text
    Defalt HQ Video patch
    5 screen 2.01 Launcher
    2.0.0 Locksreen with Vibrate

    Credit goes to ChevyNo1 for his kernel and wifi tether patch
    1.2 ghz with 10 cpu settings
    Download wifi patch here

    And the 2.1 apps I pulled from various posts here and on Alldroid so many thanks to the people that ported them for us all
    2.1 Browser with MT
    2.1 music
    2.1 New and Weather
    Multi-touch maps is now on market.

    Download nandroid backup here:
    redrocket-1.0.2.zip
    Added Live Wallpapers
    Updated build.prop to allow market downloads of Live Wallpapers

    Nandroid Backup Installation Instructions:
    -Update (if available) all of your apps before installing
    -Backup any files you wish to restore, just to be safe.
    -Extract the files from the archive using WinRAR, 7zip, etc.
    -Place the extracted folder into the nandroid folder on your sdcard
    -Reboot into recovery mode
    -Wipe data/factory reset (for best performance, but is optional, there is no data in my backp)
    -Backup/Restore
    -Advanced Nandroid Restore
    -Choose backup (select the ROM)
    -Perform Restore
    -Celebrate!

    Hope this makes looking at your Droid enjoyable as it has for me if you choose to run it.

    Is this stable though? I mean, what are any issues you've had with it?

    Ya doing the .zip version now, be updated shortly.

    As far as issues go, i've been running this about 5 days now and haven't come across anything so far.
    Tethering with wep is fine and nice speeds.
    Autobrightness and keyboard backlighting haven't been an issue like I expected from trying other OC'd rom's, so I didn't have to patch them.
    MT browser I had working with v8 but i broke it somehow so it's not included until I figure out what the issue is.
    Really like the 2.1 keyboard with voicesearch but theming it breaks the search buttons so i've stuck with the 2.01.
    Overall performance has been great, lowest benchmark i've seen repeatedly over the 5 days has been 165.

    I'll have the zip posted in about 5 mins.

    Very nice! I love that it's not a puke-inducing red too.

    That's actually what started me on this , I hated all the bright red themes I've seen and they were just overwhelming.

    Oh it's in just not with the v8 engine.

    I only noticed it broken this morning, so I just need some time to work out the how.

    Only thing I can think of I did since it was working was updated my wifi tether to a newer version.

    Fixed now and switched to .zip format so mobile downloads will work.
    Yes MT is in the browser, I just need to fix the v8 version (which is the google engine in chrome)

    It is still a nandroid backup just changed from a .rar to a .zip so that people could unzip without a computer.

    Its a very visually stunning app so great job :) I love how you changed the coloring of the keyboard and everything completely, instead of just on highlight.

    Ya I never understood why everyone has stuck with the default colors on keys myself either.
    Looks like I have the v8 engine working on the multitouch browser again. I'll give it til tomorrow to verify then upload it if I see no issues. Makes the browser noticably more responsive on Java sites.
