    trying this 1st from sholes.info :


    The Sholes.info ROM of 2.1 apps on 2.0.1 and various other fun stuff

    This could be considered an extension to the ROMs Berzerker posted previously, but it’s much more interesting now! With this one ROM installation file, you can choose which of the included packages to install through a menu, leading to much better customizability than previous versions.

    http://www.sholes.info/downloads/sp/sholes_info-rev6.rom.tgz
    md5sum 2dd8df42ea1ad6540107df0f83aefe05
    sha1sum 0aa3ae8bee7ddf443b7c59fec58f5d43fb837921

    UPDATE: A few bugs have been fixed in http://www.sholes.info/downloads/sp/sholes_info-rev10.rom.tgz

    i am trying the
    http://www.sholes.info/downloads/sp/sholes_info-rev10.rom.tgz

    went to recovery/install/install from sd card, and it cant find it,
    next i tried


    Version 4b (Everything INCLUDING Swype + Youtube HQ Hack):
    Download: http://www.sholes.info/downloads/sholes_info_4.rom.tgz
    md5sum: 13d679f336c547d404daeea65785132c
    sha1sum: 833c6e855bbd78e1a98ce4cf943d0d523f7e1f9e

    same thing, says no .tar files, do i need to rename it?
    i read in part of one thread to unzip it, tried to do that with androzip, it found it this time, but gave me error1 msg.

    coming from current:

    Also, for anyone who needs it, here's a clean 2.0.1 image with only root + busybox (use backup/restore with this image):
    Download: http://www.sholes.info/wp-content/up...oem-backup.zip
    md5sum: d5e24ab97e643a915a00d3a674e00776
    sha1sum: bbed9fb36b754128f6e105a70fb488160e133afb

    any help please, thanks in advance!

    Do you have SPRecovery-0.99.1b installed? and did you push the 10 build to the root of your card?

    Boot into recovery
    Choose "install"
    Choose the option that says "Choose ROM from SD card"

    In your first attempt you chose the wrong option

    It should be there select it and follow the onscreen directions

    shouldn't choose install from sd card

    should choose to install rom from sdcard?

    You should then see the sholes..<blah>...tar.qz

    It sounds like you dont have the latest SPRecovery. I mean on 0.91b

    First screen has:

    reboot system now
    wipe data/recovery reset
    wipe cache partition
    mount options
    backup/restore
    install <--- choose this

    This results in this:
    Install /sdcard/update.tar as ROM
    Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    Choose ROM from SD card <--- choose this

    This results in this:
    sholes_info-rev10.rom.tgz <--- choose this
    (more if you downloaded them)

    Then the phone makes a nandroid back up...
    Then the phone installs the new ROM
    Then I push power until I am back at the initial recovery screen and I elect to reboot my phone

    First time I tried I noticed it was looking for ,,,.tgz but when I downloaded the rom it came down as (whichever).rom.tgz.gz, so I just removed the .gz at the end > (whichever).rom.tgz, put it on the sdcard and everything went fine after that.
