    you MUST have a partitioned SD card to run this rom. If you don't, it will freeze up and you'll think it sucks. I will post a tutorial shortly on doing this. as well as the auto script.

    Instructions on getting your SD card partitioned to run the rom:

    1. Download Alpha.
    2. Put the unziped file in your nandroid folder on the sdcard of your phone.
    3. Restart phone into recovery, holding x when the phone first boots.
    4. Select backup/restore using your volume up/down keys, and camera key to select it.
    5 Then go o adcanced nandroid restore.
    6. Chose backup and then select the Alpha.
    7. Then preform restore.
    8. After the restore fishes you are going to want to go back to the main menu using the power key, and select the mount menu.
    9. Mount system.
    10. Plug phone into computer, and run adb from your tool folder of the android sdk.
    11. Type in "/system/xbin/mk16sdpart.sh" (This is for 16GB sdcard only)
    12. Wait for this to finish and then reboot your phone.

    it is stable enough to be used as a main, if you don't mind the phone issue we are working on. Other than this, it's blazing fast and might make you poo your pants..be aware. lol

    Erron, the partition script is built in on the alpha release( or its supposed to be)
    should be able to just run /system/xbin/mk16sdpart.sh from adb or terminal

    Bluetooth is not working ATM. Boostd and I have been discussing a fix.

    As far as calls go it's pretty simple, Ill lay it out.

    While connected to wifi, sending and receiving calls work just fine.
    While not on wifi, if you hava data running, you can not use the phone function.
    If you turn data off, phone functions as normal.

    HTC was nice enough to build a widget right into the rom so you just hit one button to turn it on or off. So it makes it quite manageable if you want to try the rom.

    Text messaging works fine on any configuration.
