3.0.1 released! Now 100% sense free, and with working contact sync!

NOTE: This is MUCH different than simply unchecking HTC Sense in the MoDaCo Custom Custom ROM! This is the full Android package- just like a magic or dream.

This is VERY likely the fastest ROM for Hero available!

Hello everyone;

Recently I have been working with Vanilla Android and have grown to adore it through AOSP releases. However, AOSP releases didn't have the speed nor the stability to meet my expectations- so I started working with a 2.73.405.66 ROM and removed the HTC bloatware. The result has been a VERY fast, stable ROM.

What Works:

-Everything in the MoDaCo custom rom. After installation, everything is (even more with 3.0) shockingly stable.

-Unlike AOSP roms, all the hardware works properly and you get to experience vanilla Android.

What DOESN'T Work:

Bluetooth (on 3.0)

Trackball (on 3.0)

Use Toggle Headset App for switching to headset.

Inconsistencies:

None!

Parts of sense that haven't been removed:

As of release 3.0, all sense has been removed!

This is a very stable ROM. It runs lightning fast, and saves a lot of memory.

AychTeeSee's Vanilla Cupcake ROM features:


Apps2SD

Teknologist's 1.91 kernel

Busybox

Nano

Root

Spare parts

...And the rest is pure vanilla Android!

Online Kitchen

An online kitchen for this ROM is now available in post 2 of this topic.

Download 3.0.1:

Download 2.1 (if you need bluetooth):

http://rapidshare.com/files/340207020/Aych...-2.1-signed.zip

Can't connect to 3G on 2.1?

For some strange reason, in Android 1.5's settings provider, mobile network is disabled by default. To enable it, hold the power button and select "Enable Mobile Network". GPS is disabled by default too, this can be toggled in settings.

Cheers!

Andrew

By AychTeeSee's request, an online kitchen is now available for this ROM!

I will strive to update them kitchen whenever the ROM is updated, but it won't happen instantly, so take note of the version numbers below! Also, if you have issues with a ROM you have baked in the kitchen, please check whether you can replicate the issue in the standard ROM before seeking help!

Enjoy! :)

P

Note: the online kitchen is currently only available to my MoDaCo premium members (those who have signed up to MoDaCo Ad Free or MoDaCo Plus) as it is not yet running on an infrastructure that can support a huge number of users. This will be the case for the foreseeable future as the kitchen system is developed.

Update: the online kitchen is now running on new dedicated hardware. Please bear with us as we tune performance and configuration and report any issues via PM!

    A nice Rom. Very streamlined. Unless im missing something though it doesn't include the option to create an exchange account, which is something I absolutely need. Is this planned for the future? Great work though.

    Hmm looks good. What i've been looking for.

    Does it remove the black top bar also? As in... is it the stock white now?

    Dloading now. I'll flash it and check it out :)

    Thanks!

    There's an update.zip theme on xda that makes the top bar white.

    Vanilla Android doesn't have exchange support, but I might add it in the future.

    I haven't started a changelog yet, as it's been more of a hobby. I will add one for the next release.

    Just a note - I've recently discovered that 0.4 does NOT fix the acore bug: however, it reduces it. It's caused by the HTC Setup Wizard being removed.

    I'm going to see what I can do to fix this, please bear with me :)

    Would putting the HTCSetupWizard.apk back in not fix this then?

    Yes, but that breaks alot more things, as the HTC setup wizard is dependant on HTC social networking, Rosie, and other HTC bloat this ROM is trying to avoid.

    not sure if this connected or not, but i put the phone in airplane mode, and restart it no matter how many times, i never get acore failure, but as soon as i turn off airplane mode, does acore failure kick in.

    I've turned off the downloads until I can find a fix for a bug that doesn't play your ringtone when you have a call. With all this HTC stuff, I'm considering building Android from source and using Teknologist's kernel. Stay tuned.

    i have managed to get the acore on the startup to at least stop, i turned off network date synchronization, cleared my voicemail notification in the call settings, haven't setup my gmail account yet. gonna try that next. btw haven't messed with editing apn conf either, just installed .4, will be adding telus info and seeing how that goes as well. still loving the rom. thanxs mate.

    Edit:

    had to make my wifi broadcast in other to connect wouldn't connect it otherwise

    edit2:

    gmail, apn, market, so far everything seems to work, haven't had a acore problem again, have rebooted multiple times, hopefully won't be seeing it anytime soon either. hehe

    It's suppose to be vanilla dude, so why will it have sense? the purpose of this is to get rid of all the HTC unk. For force try to disabling your date to sync from your network, in the settings under clock, After I did that i haven't had one force close yet.

    after install, it's none sense and force colse local, weather...etc, waitting fix

    None sense? NONSENSE! :)

    I can understand the homescreen closing, but weather? Please elaborate so I can fix this issue.

    Also, thanks Treese for the information! It is very helpful.

    Everyone, everyone! I've fixed the acore bug!

    It seems that the Google Account creation application was making references to HTC libraries that had been removed. I changed the APK to the emulator's APK and now all is well :)

    0.5 is coming with the fix VERY soon!

    Well, 0.5 is here. It seems acore only crashes before you enter your google account details by entering an google app. That's why the crashes stopped after you logged into your google account, Treese.

    Good night everyone!
