    [UPDATED RELEASE] Zinc V2.1.2 Fascinate Rom (A Deodexed Elements Series Release)

    This rom is what I am calling a "zip rom" (non AOSP) Rom with some AOSP Apps. Once again this rom is not a built from source rom (AOSP), it was built from a ota.zip, (hence the phrase "ZIP ROM").*

    Most TouchWiz applications have been removed, except the ones kept in order to keep the Rom stable. Apk files have been deodexed, optipng, zipaligned and some apps are built from source. Shutdown animation was changed and a few ringtones were added.

    Apps removed:*
    A lot!*
    Apps were placed in /sdcard/extras/ folder:
    Memo.apk
    com.androidapps.spare_parts.apk
    puzzle_lock.apk
    TATLiveWallpapersOceanWave.apk
    VoiceRecorder.apk

    Thanks to all for the following below:
    JT1134 for providing a solid base to work from (Clean D101 Base)
    Gallery3d AOSP*
    Adwlauncher - Anderweb
    Launcher Pro Plus- Federico-http://www.launcherpro.com/
    Superuser - Chainsdd
    2.1 lockscreen - Wasupwithuman
    file manager-Cyanogen
    Ported Blackmod theme BY: Stanrc [MM Theme] Blackmod for Fascinate - CyanogenMod Forum themed version)
    And everyone else that made it possible.

    This was my first "Zip Rom" since I am a fan of AOSP Roms, I do not have a huge amount of experience making a rom like this (zip rom). I have recently been working on my other Rom named "Cadmium" which is a Droid AOSP Rom. (Completed, but not publicly released yet)*

    Feel free to check out the Element Rom Series on my website @*Elements Rom Series Deodexed.com

    UPDATE LATEST VERSION
    ***Version 2.1.2 Change log***
    Changed Rom naming convention so it fits the Android OS version. (preparing for Froyo)
    Updated boot sound.
    Added back default live wallpaper (ocean)
    removed some /sdcard/extras
    changed to the default mms.apk (for text messaging)
    removed quadrant (get it from the market)

    A few more optimizations with the apps apk structure. (deodexed, zipaligned, optipng and what not) saving a little more space..

    I flashed the themed rom directly over jt's voodoo kernel v.02 1200mhz and it works great, just took about 4 mins to boot the first time. it's very slick and i love having the dark status bar and blue battery. one suggestion is to make the unlock icon on the aosp lock screen blue as well, might look a little better.

    No sure what you were running before.. I recommend wiping data cache but when i tested several times without out a "wipe data and cache" and it loaded fine. It does take a few minutes to load the first boot but not ten minutes. I would try to reload again.

    Thanks for the speedy response! I got the succesful install from sd card, rebooted and yes after only a minute It started back up. As soon as I slid the unlock over i got flooded with a mess of Sorry! media and acore process Force close windows .... I occaisionally get a glimpse of the option to select tw launcher, ADW. launcher or Launcher pro.... but can't select anything... I did however force a shut down and saw a great android exit logo!?

    **** OOOPs I erased cache and data via recovery mode not in clock work... i did it via clockwork and now Im loaded and functioning... thanks... cant wait to explore it!

    <<<< Explored... ADW launcher prefered now as default. Runs and looks smooth... I was hoping that it would magically kick my GPS into to actually working! Still can't get navigation to locate me

    #GPS# installed GPS Status from market, refreshed and downloaded gps assist in the apps settings and I sync up with GPS under a minute

    So I'm new to all of this. My phone IS rooted and running Kernel 2.6.29 and ADW. I downloaded Zinc V1.1 zip file to my sd card. Went through ROM Manager and loaded it. Clicked Wipe Cache and rebooted through clockwork recovery. After the reboot, this is the message that appears:

    --Install from package...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Are you trying to install from the update.zip or the zinc zip? I only ask because I got similar messages when I tried to install the vzw update. I would try to clear cache n data in CWmod again then be sure you are installing the zinc zip not the update zip... ?
