    Verizon 2.4.5 ROM

    Thanks to PiranhaDroid & RedFlea for helping me obtain system dump!​

    DO NOT USE THIS ROM ON R2-D2 Droid2!!!

    Check Post #3 for Swype fix.

    Clean ROM users check post #3 for status widget fix.
    (Clean ROM now has widget fix built in)​

    I have gone to a new way of making ROMs which will allow users to add what they like through update zip files. So you will start off with a clean ROM. Your start off ROMs will be the following:

    All are based on 2.4.5 VZW Software
    Super Clean with default google apps
    Super Clean with default google apps but with Bluremail. Bluremail is a nice exchange or email client for those that dont use Gmail.
    They will come with the Black Bar Theme or Default Droid2 theme. Also there is a black bar theme with default vanilla android icons.

    From there you will have pre-made packages to install.

    Example, you want widgets...so you download the widget.zip file and update it through recovery. You want Droid2 Gallery, you download Droid2 Gallery and update through recovery, you want complete blur with all social apps...well you get the idea. Plus many more options and setups. You can also install whatever you want manually, I will have instructions on how to do that. It will be a good way to learn the basics of Android too.

    I am finishing up testing the base ROMs and packages so I should have them up later on tonight or tomorrow at some point.

    I will no longer be answering questions about the current ROMs. I am taking the time to rebuild everything. It was all done from the ground up and I must say the new ROMs feel smoother and seem a lot more stable.

    They will be posted in my new ROM thread found HERE.

    Thanks for all the support!

    Pre-Installation Tasks:
    Before you install this ROM or any ROM you will need to have root and have Bootstrap on your phone. You can find out how to do all that HERE.​

    BACKUP your phone using Bootstrap before installing any ROMs so you can go back to your current setup if anything fails.​

    ROM Notes:
    All ROMs have Gmail, Kindle, Skype, My Verizon and Google Maps removed. There are new versions in Android Market for you to download and install.​

    All ROMs have root already and you just need to download Superuser from Android Market to obatin root.​

    All ROMs have been deodexed and zip alligned.​

    All ROMs have busybox installed.​

    There are a few versions of this 2.4.5 ROM decide which is best for you and follow ALL instructions.​

    Stars Wars Full ROM - Contains all the original ROM (Even Bloatware) files besides the apps listed above.​

    VZW 2.4.5 Full ROM - Contains all original ROM (Even Bloatware) files besides the apps listed above. All Star Wars items have been replaced with Droid2 items. So we have the latest 2.4.5 ROM without Star Wars if that is what you are looking for. All Star Wars material that was removed will placed on SD Card in a folder named Removed_Packages in case you would like to reinstall some missing apps.​

    VZW 2.4.5 Clean ROM - All 3rd party apps and bloatware have been removed. Basically a clean stock ROM with Blur. All apps that are removed will be placed on your SD Card in a folder named Removed_Packages in case you would like to reinstall some missing apps.​

    VZW 2.4.5 Super Clean ROM - This is a ROM with all Blur, bloatware and 3rd party apps removed. You are left with the Vanilla Android SMS-MMS, Calander, Clock, Email and Gallery applications.​




    Install Instructions - All ROMs!
    1. Download and place ROM on SD Card​
    2. Reboot into Recovery​
    3. Create Backup​
    4. Mount System​
    5. Wipe Cache -You may choose not to wipe but MAY have problems​
    6. Wipe Data - You may choose not to wipe but MAY have problems​
    7. Mount System and Data - Yes double check that both are MOUNT​
    8. Install Zip From SD Card​
    9. Choose Zip From SD Card​
    10. Select your ROM​
    11. Yes - Install​
    12. Wipe Cache Again - You may choose not to wipe but MAY have problems​
    13. Wipe Data Again - You may choose not to wipe but MAY have problems​
    14. Perform a Factory Reset through Android - Clears facebook issue and Battery manager!​
    15. Reboot​
    16. Enjoy!​
    You *MAY* choose not to wipe system or data but you may have problems. If you do not wipe, do not perform a facotry reset and have problems please make sure you reinstall ROMs with doing a wipe and reset before you post any questions about problems or you will be charged $9.99 for each question ;)

    Lazy, don't care enough. Mostly use the hard keyboard anyway. Great work! Customizing as we speak. :)

    I delete swype...will look into it. Maybe easy fix. I wonder if it is locked into the bootloader some how. The bootloader on R2-D2 is different that the D2...looks like hacking this sucker might be harder than first thought.

    Honestly, I'm just glad that the damn thing works. Much better now, thanks to you and the rest of the development community.

    I'm just glad it's not as bad as the Backflip. Oi. D:

    yea, ill test once i get more comfortable with knowing what I'm doing. I just want the star wars stuff... aka live wallpapers, notification sounds, apps and widgets.

    Do you need me to zip up the system folder for you off my droid x?
