Ok to start off, I have a droid1 rooted and flashed to cricket network. I can use all my apps with internet and all. Maps and market works. I know I can flash custom roms without reverting the flash. Thing is when I do flash a rom my market and apps won't work. I heard I can flash a custom rom without resetting apn settings so my apps still work. My question to you guys is, is there a theme-able custom 2.0 rom?

I flash all kinds of roms all day long. I'm using a Droid on Cricket. Everything works. All I have to do after changing roms is put the startup.sh and u2nl files in the folder they need to be and chmod 755 them. I then install the Autostart (root) app and change my APN. Reboot and I'm done. Everything works perfect.

I run Froyo. Bugless Beast v.05, Ultimate Droid eXtreme 8, CyanogenMod 6, Zen-Miui V2. Pretty much all the new roms as they come out.

Here's the steps you need to know since your phone is already flashed:

Download and install Autostart (root) by Blank-online.eu and Root Explorer by Speed Software from the Android Market.

Now using your phone download this zip file,
http://www.whiterabbit.org/android/u2nl.zip, from WhiteRabbit.org.

Open the Root Explorer app and give it root permission if asked. At the top there should be a button that says "Mount R/W", press it.

Navigate to the /sdcard/download folder and open the u2nl.zip file you just downloaded. Inside you'll find the u2nl file. The autostart.sh file should also be in the zip file in the autostart/motodroid/cricket folder.

Extract both files. The extracted files will be in the /sdcard/extracted folder.

Move the u2nl file to the /system/bin folder and set its permissions to
User: Read, Write, Execute
Group: Read, Execute
Others: Read, Execute

Go to the /data folder and create a new folder named "opt" if it's not already there.

Move the autostart.sh file to the /data/opt folder and set its permissions to
User: Read, Write, Execute
Group: Read, Execute
Others: Read, Execute

You can now exit the Root Explorer app.

Now launch the Voice Dialer app and say "Open APNs". Modify the APN to look like this:

Name - Cricket
APN - internet
Proxy - wap.mycricket.com
Port - 8080
Username - yourphonenumber@mycricket.com
Password - cricket
Server - wap.mycricket.com
MMSC - http://mms.mycricket.com/servlets/mms
MMS - Proxy wap.mycricket.com
MMS Port - 8080
MCC - 310
MNC - 004
Authentication Type - PAP or CHAP
APN type - <Not set>

Save the APN changes and reboot your phone. That's it. You can check out the full process at Motorola Droid Full Solution Updated

When do I flash the rom? After all that? Because I can't download after rom install. Only view web

You do all this after you install your new ROM. Setup a WIFI connection on your phone or just download to your computer then transfer via USB to your phone's SD card.

When I do this my apn vanishes like I never put it in. Even after I reboot my phone and check the apn file again it is still gone. Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks

I should mention that I am using an Evo and everything else works just fine.
