I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM Desire Port for the Google Nexus One! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know. :)

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 with a Custom Recovery Image installed. Use 'ROM Manager' on the Android Market to install the ClockworkMod Custom Recovery Image.

Features

  • Based on the Desire 2.10.x.x ROM series (FRF91), with FRG33 and later merges happening gradually
  • Kernel by intersectRaven (2.6.35.4_AVS-950mV_CFS_20100913_1452)
  • Pre-rooted with su and Superuser Permissions by ChainsDD

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.

ROM highlights - Desire MCR r9 base, FM, 720P, BT, Torch, USB mount + menu working.

Some refinements to be made around the USB mount menu and some other bits and pieces, but it's looking pretty good imho. :P

Anyone know how this compares to eViL's ROM (aside from having the much-appreciated kitchen layout for some optional extras)? I *just* got eViL's v1.15 setup last night and I'm not really wanting to do that all again unless I know it's better.

I've used both so I'll report back later. The main problem I had with Evil's ROM was the wifi dropping out constantly and other weird issues which I think may be due to Dark Tremor's a2sd which I have always had problems with. Maybe it's my memory card or something.

To bad Renault makes contact first and the fist call is done excellent. But after turning off my car and restart it its getting issues.

Also the music controls are not working perfect.

But its a huge step forward a real huge step

Awesome, I'll give this ROM a go later! I'm currently running CM6. I was running evil's ROM until v1.10, but Wifi+Bluetooth never quite worked that well for me.

Thanks for all of the hard work, Paul! Much appreciated. :P
