Remember that if you use this ROM, you do so entirely at your own risk!!

About MoDaCo Custom ROMs

MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs - either shipping or leaked. A MCR release is designed to feel as far as possible like a stock ROM, with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.

Requirements

In order to use this ROM on your device, you must be rooted and be able to launch the custom recovery image using the supplied scripts in the root package. You can read more about how to root and launch the CRI on your device in this topic.

      Thanks

      It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

      Future Updates - READ THIS!

      By providing this ROM I am not implying in any way that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely. Please do not donate / sign up on the assumption that future releases will be available (I don't want you to be disappointed!).

      And finally...

      If you would like to show your appreciation for the ROM, please consider supporting MoDaCo by signing up for a MoDaCo Ad Free or MoDaCo Plus account, both of which also give you early access to Beta ROM releases and access to the the online kitchens.

      Enjoy! :huh:

There may be a short wait while the load balancing software determines the best kitchen to serve your ROM. The kitchen should appear below within 20 seconds.

I think dropping in the latest radio without the supporting RIL might be a bad idea, i'm leaning towards 32.44.00.32U_5.09.05.30_2.

Feature Suggestion: Long holding the volume keys to skip music tracks!

Bug/Feature: Please add market links for the preinstalled apps like titanium backup and co so we dont have to first install them manual with the market to get updates.

Has this revision sorted any battery issues? My battery seems to drain very quickly. I use the phone of a morning with a full charge, use twitter for 5 mins, browse for 5 mins and the battery drops to 87%. By the time I get to work, an hour later, it's on 60% and then I have to charge it again. No unusual apps, I have hardly any as I'm testing for battery drains. It just stock stuff. Does anyone else have this problem?

Please Paul, if you mind can you dig a bit into the only issue that blocks me to use any FroYo Sense ROM, including my beloved MCR? I've posted many times about that, but it seems that only a few people suffer this issue.

Basically, the A2DP music playback (streaming to a Sony Ericsson MW-600 headset) is stopped as most notification sounds are played, including Google Maps Navigation voice prompts; a manual "play" command is required to resume playback.

This happens, as I said, with ALL 2.2 Sense ROMs so far, and I tried them all.

Thank you for your support and keep up the great work!

Cheers,

Angelo

I have experienced that with the the r8 my cpu was alway over 600 mhz, with the open desire rom this was 250.. Sure this is a reason for high batterie consumption.

I'm using a Sony Ericsson Bluetooth headset and I don't get that problem. Could it be specific to the device? I'm using the HBH-IS800 and all seems hunky dory. Also, are you using the stock media player?

There are two bugs in HTC Messaging application, not sure it is known bug.

- Sometime (not all the time, rarely) it won't update on the message box when typing, only way to get update appear is tap on the message box. It can go away by go back inbox and return chat.

- If you typing a very long message (at least 100 characters), most of time, it will jump to the top page. I have to stroll all the way to bottom to see last convention.
