    Great news, thanks to Koveleski from Team DarkEdge I now have file hosting. Downloads will be way faster and I will be able to get on Rom Manager now!

    Attention: Please read the entire thread before you apply anything. There is important information here.


    The idea behind my roms is to add functionality without sacrificing stability. It will be a rare occurrence that any of these roms have bugs. I will always do my best to keep them as "clean" as possible.


    Note: Because of a hack to improve streaming audio implemented in these roms, when you run Quadrant tests your results will be awful, I'm looking into it now. Linpack works fine though.


    ROMS

    New!
    metiCkMod V6.3.1 - BlackN'Bluebar
    A mashup of Blackbar and Smoked Glass, I'll add pics later. It's basically Smoked Glass with out the glass.

    - Wired Tether (Project Site)
    - Wireless Tether (Project Site)

    Recommendations: Don't use any root app to restore data, unless you're coming from a previous version of metiCkMod or FRG22. If you really want to restore your apps with titatium or something like it you can do so without restoring the data that comes with the app. Once you're done restoring the apps you should go into Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Running or All, click on Market, force stop and clear data. This will do a factory reset (so to speak) of the market.

    Recommended apps:

    Flash Player (Beta 3) - Download official Adobe Flash 10.1 from market V6.3+

    SetCPU (Available on market or XDA)

    HTC_IME (awesome keyboards)

    Red Sox HTC_IME Keyboard
    Yankees HTC_IME Keyboard

    D2 Multi-Touch Keyboard This keyboard still breaks the physical keyboard, use with the understanding that it WILL happen. Still the keyboard itself works great if you're someone who doesn't use the physical keyboard.



    Clockworkmod Instructions: Place file anywhere on your sdcard, boot into recovery, select install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, and select the appropriate zip file.

    SPRecovery Instructions: Rename file to update.zip, place on the root of your sdcard (meaning not in a folder on your sdcard), boot into recovery

    Wipe or not? It is my recommendation that everyone wipes data & cache no matter what build they are coming from. Also, you should only use titanium to re-install apps without the data. It kinda sucks to re-enter all your info, accounts and bookmarks (especially with all these leaks) but in the end, if you run into problems you won't wonder if it’s because you didn't wipe data/cache.

    For those of you that want to push and pull files to the droid. I did not edit the boot.img so before you type adb remount in adb you need to type adb root, wait for it to connect and run as root, then you can hit adb remount.

    Just got done downloading the blackbar (nice touch with the blue battery icon BTW) and paired it up with Chevy's 1.25LV kernel. So far, so good! Quadrant in the mid 1400's and 18-19 MFLOPS.
    We'll see how it progresses through out the day ...

    Just to let you know, I installed the black bar over Lithium Mod only wiping cache and it's working flawlessly. No restoring apps manually. :)

    Very cool! Also, I don't know if you saw it posted on the original FRG22 thread (and here on yours as well) about the streaming audio fix; don't know if you want to throw that into the mix as well - I know you like to keep it as stock as possible.

    Thanks for the quick theme on this build!

    Yeah, what's the deal with the streaming audio? What's wrong with it?

    It sounds like sheeat!! I stream Pandora when I run, and if you try to crank it up the sound quality is horrible - sounds like your listening to it through a tin can. But, the fix in that post solves that issue - after doing that I can turn it up 'til my ears bleed and the sound is still good.

    I haven't used pandora lately so I definitely didn't know that. I applied the fix. Can you edit the post where you gave a link to the problem once I upload the new roms? I just don't want people to get confused. It's up to you, I just for-see lots of questions about it. Maybe just reference that it is included in these roms? Lol idk man, but thanks for the heads up.

    OK - I edited that post. One thing I should mention, which you may want to put in the OP, is that after changing to medai.stagefright.enable-player=false the quadrant score will NOSE DIVE! I mean significantly - from 1400's to 700's running a 1.25 kernel! HOWEVER, the overall performance of the ROM doesn't seem to change!
    Just wanted to prepare you because I can see the posts now :laugh:
