    Project GimpSource,

    is and shall be (name to be determined at a future date) my ultimate creative, source built rom. I am starting to acquire all the tools and know how to build this perfection rom. Today everything went smoothly, so far with setting up SDK and downloading the froyo source, i will move on to Ginger Bread once the source is perfected and i see roms that "work" on our devices. Don't worry my wife is up for an upgrade and she just got herself a brand (refurb) new replacement D1 and she will be giving that to me. So then I will have two D1's.


    So I guess i am just letting the faithful metiCkMOD followers know that i am building this rom for you. it will be in the metiCkMOD family of stabilty and speed.


    any requests, needs, wants, hearts desires, don't be afraid to ask me. I am not a reclusive, stand offish, weird-o (well maybe alittle), don't talk to me dev. I am here for us ......

    lemme know what ya think and feel

    make it Gingerbread 2.3.1 and add in low brightness leveling. also add the notification switches like wi-fi, airplane mode, and power off.

    Love the simple things. Love the ad blocks, love the widget groupings, would love a reboot into recovery option.

    I also did not like the notification switchers until BD put em in, honestly don't like miui, but they are helpfull if you need to make an adjustment while your in an app. Like you walk outside and need to adjust brightness setting, so instead of closing out app you can just drop the notification bar.

    I will give this one a little thought. Love your 1.1 release, rocking it now!

    reboot/recovery is a first priority, widget grouping is already avail in davrosMOD so it will definitely be carried over, ad blocking fo sho.

    so ya simple but yet complex is who and what i am

    +1 on that reboot recovery ...

    Honestly I can live without it, these roms have run THE BEST out of all the ROMS I've run.

    Keep up the amazing work!!!

    My 2cents are:

    1.) Stock Theme as base, with update.zips to apply Themes (that way no one is force fed anyone elses tastes)
    2.) Lockscreen music controls
    3.) Notification pulldown controls
    4.) If someone could make Miui's contacts.apk and phone.apk work with standard framework that would be killer (they are far more fuctional than AOSP android's version)
    5.) DSP Manager under settings... or as seperate app.

    If the Kernel that was is Miui 12-24-2010 works on other roms I would say use that one. Because that Miui and that kernel sips battery compared to any other Kernel/Rom combination I have ever used... and I have tried literally hundreds.

    Anyway enough of my wish list. Glad to see another From Source Dev in our ranks. Best of luck.

    I still keep current (actually on a number of roms), but it's lost something for me over there in that area...
    M1 has been one of my favorites all along and now with davros picking up the torch it's interesting to watch this develop. This feels like a better behaved and tighter group too. I think I'm gonna call this section my home base...
