    Remember, this ROM is Deodexed, which means the first boot will take a long time, all subsiquent boots will load fast, the bootanimation present in this ROM does not repeat, so after it finishes your screen will be BLACK, this is NORMAL.. don't worry, it will load, just be patient.. :)



    IN ORDER TO NOT GET FC'S WHEN INSTALLING THIS ROM, YOU MUST INSTALL THESE FILES, HERE IS THE REASONING BEHIND THIS..

    The nandroid backup contains a system and data partition, if you don't mind about wiping data/cache then restore both and then YOU DON'T need to install these files..

    if you don't want to wipe like most of you.. then download the following folder and unzip, place the 4 apks on the root of your sdcard and install.. then you can use the modified HTC Keyboard without the FC messages.. if you simply don't want to use the HTC Keyboard go to settings>Launguage and Keyboard and uncheck the box for touch input.. :)

    here is your explaniation.. if the HTC Keyboard is installed into the system/apps folder it will ALWAYS FC, so you must install it regualary on your phone, HolyGrail, included part of it in the system/apps folder, which is why you are getting the FC messages, he did this because he spent alot of time, editing this keyboard and i must say its really nice.. :)

    WILL POST A LINK SOON, UPLOADED WORNG FILE..




    Updating to newest baseband
    Credit for this goes to PETE
    -Download the update.zip below
    -place on the ROOT of your SDCard
    -Rename to update.zip
    -reboot into SPRecovery
    -make an nandroid backup before
    -apply update.zip
    -reboot and your phone will give you final instructions
    -YOU WILL NOT LOSE DATA, the backup is a precaution

    D/L link..

    Changing Font
    Credit for this goes to AdamZ
    If YOU mess something up or lose any of your data its YOUR fault, not anyone elses..

    This is AdamZ's Droid Customizer from 2.0.1, however you

    can still use it to change fonts and bootanimations, NOTHING ELSE..

    so SKIP every step, excecpt for FONT and BOOTANIMATION... If you try to change something eles, you WILL be in a boot loop and have to restore,
    SO MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE JUST IN CASE..

    Theme to be applied to any rom or a complete rom? If just a theme, very nice looking. If an entire rom it still is very nice looking. Is there a list of apps/features that can be included in the OP that lets us see what differs in this version vs a previous if it is a rom release? Congrats on the release!

    I'm totally diggingthis rom, so far it's running pretty smoothly. I really like the theming (blue happens to be my favorite color). The only thing that seems weird to me is the launcher tray in landscape mode looks a little unnatural, other than that all is well and seems pretty smooth. Is there a way we could get the different LED options in MMS and gmail?

    for kernals/boot animations, follow the poster's instructions.. there all different, but most are just update.zip s for kernals, and most bootanimations, you will have to use ADB, Terminal, or RootExplorer

    the new LED, options are avaliable in the Mms.apk not for Gmail..

    open the stock messaging app, go to the main screen the one that shows all the threads, hit menu, then settings and scroll down to access them all.. :)
