    If we are already rooted, we can skip to step 13 right?

    Does this blow away everything I have previously modified/messed up on my D3 (Metamorphs, etc)? Do I need to unroot/restore bloat/etc before doing so?

    I would try to do the first steps but I am doing it on my Windows laptop (I can't stand windows) and it froze. Again.

    And I'm not sure how to install .rar files. It shows lots of options, but every one costs money.

    I tried a trial but if froze when installing.

    Use winrar.

    There is no way to get into Koush's recovery without access to the bootstrap app.

    BTW the instructions clearly state you have to be on .890 before installing this ROM.

    Do Macs have programs that do this? I would rather do this on my mac, as it doesn't crash every 15 minutes lol.

    The official 890 update is maybe 7 days away. The soak test starts today.

    "select the xml from the extracted sbf file in rsd lite"

    What does this mean and how do I do it?

    1: Open up the "Droid_3_SBF_5.6.890.zip" in any archiving program, and extract its contents to a folder on your desktop (for easy location)
    2: In RSDLite, in what looks like an address bar at the top of the program, click the "..." to the right of it
    3: In that window, browse to the folder you extracted all those files to, and select the XML file (the only one that will show)
    4: Once selected, click "Start" to the right of the previous button, and off you go!

    Trying to find what is custom on this rom? It's rooted, deodexed, and some apps added/removed.

    What else makes this custom.

    I was trying to find the prop changes you made but this is all I could find. Are there any other customizations we can look for?

    • mot.proximity.delay=150 (was 450)
    • wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 45 (was 90)
    • windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=55windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=120 (was 55)

    Just making sure, I finished doing the SBF thing, and now I can put it on my phone and install it? I can never be too careful.

    I decompiled the framework, and modified some of the XML files. Not normally noticed, but they are there. I dont remember off hand what all I changed. Forgot to write them down as I changed them. I added a couple images to the framework, but Im not sure how well it worked. I optimized all images in all apps (not a whole lot, otherwise there were massive graphic glitches).
