I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Dell Streak! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know. :D

This ROM is the 'starting point' for my Dell Streak custom ROMs.

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. You can read more about how to use a CRI on your device in this topic.

Features Included
  • Based on the 4399 release
  • Rooted with Superuser 2.1 by ChainsDD
  • Built with the MCR build process which reduces the size and boosts the speed of the ROM
  • Rooted boot image with 'adb remount' permission and superuser APK
  • busybox with Droid Explorer support
  • terminfo and settings in boot.img to allow nano etc. use
  • Updated Google Maps
  • MCR version displayed in 'About' screen
  • Optional baked in Wavesecure via the online kitchen (installed to system partition for maximum security)
  • Odexed to remove key dex files from the internal for performance reasons.
Changelog

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

Installation

To install this ROM:
  • Ensure you have a custom recovery image installed (see 'requirements' above)
  • 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 by powering on with volume up + volume down pressed, and selecting the 'update pkg' option
  • 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 available in the kitchen below, or as a prebake.

r1 (default options) - DOWNLOAD (MediaFire Pro) - MD5: 5ab2a0138645c47104f5789ca1b775b3

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...

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! :lol:

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.

SWEEEEET!
When can we expect Froyo?
How come premium registration is not cheaper for Android users seeing as all those freebies are for WinMo users?

No, that is something totally seperate.


@Paul- Does this still have the Dell 'overlay'? Does it wipe all setting and installed apps etc (hard reset)

Hi Paul,

Great news indeed and this is a great start as it allows me to easily remove some of the things i don't want from the Rom can't wait to see what else follows and like others it's time i got round to upgrading to a premium member account any way as have been meaning to do it for ages thanks again for all your hard work on this and the other things you bring us.

It's based on a "leaked" rom from dell and is 1.6. You can download the stock rom up in one of the stickies to get the basic stock rom. Otherwise, you will need to wait for some people to post roms they have baked up.

Nice one. Just cooked my first rom, one without all the guff that comes with stock (mp3 store, facecock, twatter etc). Well worth the subs fee and I am mighty chuffed, Roll on FroYo.

Thanks to all who have contributed to root, roms etc, nice work everyone :lol:

In the words of Nathan Explosion:

"Aaaawwwww... that's awesome... that's... that's just f****** brutal man!"

You freakin rock!

Time to upgrade my account to help pay for this fine bit of work.

You know what would also rock?
The ability to upload our own splash screens into the kitchen for that custom startup love.
That would be brutal.

Hi all,

May be a silly question but i have created a Rom and then transferred to the my SD card and then followed the instructions and done the Nandroid back up and everything is fine how ever when i then choose to apply an update zip it returns it can't find it message. Do i need to rename it to updatepackage.zip? as opposed to long name it currently has?

Try naming it Update.zip, it has to have a capitalized U.
