I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Commtiva N700 (this is the version based on the 0009_3_16I Froyo release)! 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 have a custom recovery image installed (Clockwork Mod).

Features (these are the features for the currently posted prebake, please check the changelog for any pending changes that are in the kitchen)
  • Based on the 0009_3_16I Froyo release
  • Pre-rooted with su and Superuser Permissions by ChainsDD
  • Insecure boot image (ro.secure=0)
  • Optimised with the MCR build process
  • All components updated to the latest versions
  • ROM is de-odexed


    Changelog

    Please see 2 posts below this one for the changes in each release.

    Installation

    To install this ROM:
    • Download the zip file of your choice from the links below (or the online kitchen) and copy to your SD card
    • Restart your device in recovery mode
    • PERFORM A NANDROID BACKUP FROM THE MENU
    • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to your memory card

    Upgrading

    No wipe is explicitly required in order to use this ROM, however if you do encounter issues of any kind, it is recommended that you wipe your device and reproduce the issue before raising it here.

    Downloads

    This ROM is now available in the online kitchen - see the post below for details! In addition to the kitchen, a prebaked download is available.

      [*]r1 -

      DOWNLOAD (Mediafire Pro) - MD5: e0e90b44551c4c4ac1e9058471d0c74c

      Please note that the download links implement referring checking to avoid deep-linking. If you are redirected to the MoDaCo homepage when you download, try 'right click save as', disabling ad blocking / no script or if all else fails try an alternative browser.

      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.

      And finally...

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.

It's prerooted so that doesn't really make sense!

Hmmm ... yep, I thought it was a bit odd as well, but Root Explorer failed to get root, so I tried Titanium, it spat out the 'Failed to get root access' error. I hopped back into WinXP and ran SuperOneClick 1.5 using the ADB.exe from the virtual cdrom which mounts when you plug it into Windows, hit 'Root' which always took 2 goes as it did this time; it reported as 'rooted', but I lazily didn't follow the remainder of the instruction given here about changing permissions of su. Booted the tab back up and it was still not rooted, ran z4root from the market .. sorted

Could it be to do with the fact that I didn't do a wipe before flashing, would that leave some data/security related settings behind? or maybe it's to do with something in /hidden?? .. call it a hunch, but since I got this I have always felt that it is more 'locked down' than it first seems (cue the x-files music) :)

Still ... your Rom feels snappier and cleaner, Angry birds no longer gets the occasional slow down - that's the most important thing B)

Phone working fine here, Tether appears to be OK too (although I don't have the ar6k.conf file?)

Have you tried restoring your backup and reflashing?

Just a thought... we are assuming the N700 (Paul's) and Mi700 (hucqim80) are exactly identical... could there be minor (but critical) differences? B)

Does WiFi (non tether) work? What happens when you try and use Tether?

What is your baseband in Software -> About? The N700 I have is PR3_128.

When you say phone doesn't work, does it not let you call out? Not show a signal? Or something else?

Um, it's a kinda involved process, but basically you use Baksmali from JesusFreke.

Installed a custom bake on my Commtiva... Works like a charm. Thanks again. Any news on the stripped back version without the crappy launcher?
