    Question Here, Does It Take A While For The "Touch Android To Begin" Because All I Have Is A Black Screen, This Is Strange Considering If Memory Serves Correct The Android Should Appear Almost Instantaneously...I'm Gonna RSD Back To Stock And Start Over Again. Damn Phones Making Me Act Like This My First Rodeo.

    Edit: Fixed It.

    I Tried Numerous Battery Pulls And Wiping Data/Cache Nothing Worked. I SBFed Back To Stock And Installed The Bare Minimum To Flash MinimalX Again And This Time It Went Through. No Answer To What The Issue Was.

    Ok, first bug report coming up. It ran very nicely with no wipe. No loss to my Quadrant scores. The deal breaker for me is that gmail and corporate email are not functional. The activesync apk is there and blur email, but tapping the icon in the messaging app just dumps me back to my home screen. I like the stripped down rom but I have to have my corporate email or it's no good for me. Others may not need it. For a stock rom with no bells n whistles its almost golden. Fine tune it, de-odex it, fix the email. thumbs up for the effort

    Backed-up, cleared cache, data and delvik. Install was quick and painless. Phone seems very responsive after the inital "one-run" stuff is done. However my contact's opens randomly even when the phone is not being used and I cannot use the back button to close the contacts - instead I have to press the home button.

    Edit: After installing V6 and SD Speed the problem with contacts randomly opening went away. I assume I just needed to reboot and that it had nothing to do with the mem mods. Everything works as expected as far as I have tested. Great work!

    Problems I've Noticed Is That The Regular Browser Sometimes Doesn't Download Having To Use Skyfire. Touching To Enter A URL Link In Any Browser Automatically Kills The Browser. Disappointed You Removed The Stock Calendar.(Able To Restore W/Root Explorer The Blur APKs And Odex Files Changing Permissions)



    Will Keep Adding To This Post As Things Arise.

    Downloading Google Search Resolved The Browsers Instantly Closing Out When Trying To Type A URL.

    Thanks for flashing. I'm glad that it has added to overall responsiveness of your device. I also apologize for the decrease in quadrant score. Quadrant is very finicky at times, which confuses me as to why it is so popular. I trust AnTuTu a bit more as it, in my opinion, is more consistent and provides better tests for the device.

    Would you mind sharing what tweaks you have made to raise your Quadrant? I can possibly test and implement them in a future update if they show consistent improvement in performance. Thanks!



    Thanks for flashing. I hope you're enjoying it so far.

    I'm glad you have been able to resolve this problem. Would you mind sharing how in case other users run into the same problem?

    In general, it will probably sit at the boot animation for some time. But after that it complete, the Android setup screen should appear without a halt at a black screen (or any color screen). To fix this, I would generally recommend pulling the battery and booting again. I hope this helps anyone who encounters this problem. Thanks.



    The recorded score above (original post) was the average of 5 quadrants ran.

    To those wishing to rely on Quadrant scores to test performance, try running it three or four times in a row to get a more accurate reading. Thanks.



    Thanks for the report. The reason that corporate email is not included is because BlurEmail.apk is removed from the ROM. BlurEmailEngine still remains because it is required to run the blur text messaging. I removed this because the market app, K9 mail (I think) can be used to sync your email. Its a very popular application. Otherwise, I can provide you with the BlurEmail.apk and BlurEmail.odex and give instructions on how to install them properly to your device's system. Thanks, and hope you're enjoying.



    I'll have to look into the download issues of the default browser -- I have not encountered this. If someone else is willing to test it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Entering a URL into the browser shouldn't kill it, I haven't experience this problem either. Any additional reports would be great.

    One bug I can confirm is typing to search directly into the address bar of the browser seems to close it. This was a mistake in my last update before releasing the ROM. It is due to GoogleQuickSearch.apk missing from the system files. I plan on fixing this in the next update. As a temporary fix, please go to the Market and download Google Search. This should fix the issue for the time being. Thanks.



    ----------------------------------



    I hope everyone is enjoying the ROM! Keep the issues and ideas for future updates coming. Expect an update within the next few days to fix the browser bug and hopefully add more framework components. Thanks and have a good day!

    No Need To Thank Me We All Should Be Thanking You. You're The Guy Helping US Keep The Android Platform Open. Trust Me When I Say I Wish I Was Able To Develop And Make A Custom ROM Or Even Help Out Designing It. Unfortunately I Don't Have The Knowledge To Do So, In Return I Feel It's My Duty To Troubleshoot The ROM Ironing Out All The Bugs Making It The Best. Thanks Again CJ For Supporting This Community/Family Of Droid Owners.
