I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the HTC Desire! 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 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 [url="http://android.modaco.com/content/htc-desire-desire-modaco-com/307365/04-may-r4-htc-desire-rooting-guide-now-for-windows-mac-linux/""]this topic[/url].

Features
  • Based on the 2.29.x.x ROM series
  • Pre-rooted with su and Superuser Permissions by ChainsDD
  • Now using sub501's kernel and components
  • Built, tweaked and massaged with the MCR build process which reduces the size and boosts the speed of the ROM
  • Patched 'Rosie' (Sense) to allow click-drag homescreen rearrange when pinch-zoomed out
  • busybox with Droid Explorer support
  • MCR version displayed in 'About' screen
  • terminfo and settings in boot.img to allow nano etc. use
  • Updated Google Components
  • Updated Facebook
  • Updated Google Search Widget
  • Updated emoticon set to fix low resolution 'embarrassed' emoticon
  • Updated Flashlight which now becomes 'Torch' for non en-US configuration. Also added requested German translation.
  • Added 'Genie' News and Weather app / widget option
  • Added stock Clock application
  • Added stock Gallery 3D option
  • Added stock Keyboard option
  • Added stock MMS app option
  • Added Voice Dialer option
  • Added Voice Search with Voice Actions
  • Added Stock Launcher2 with Phone app fix (particularly useful if you choose to remove Rosie / Sense!)
  • Added option to use stock lock screen instead of HTC version
  • Added OpenVPN components (including tun.ko)
  • Added option to disable 'vibrate on shutdown' in the kitchen
  • Added option to disable IPv6 in the kitchen
  • Added New and exclusive Sense widgets - Battery / Call Mom / Coin Flip / Dice / Fortune Cookie / Note / Quick Recorder / Sand Timer / Tip Calculator / Today In History
  • Added MCR Boot Animation (stock and N1 as options)
  • Added Google Car Home
  • Added Stock Android email app
  • Added HTC_IME mod v27 by jonasl
  • Slimmed Customize dir, additional locales added
  • Removed bootsound (can be restored via the online kitchen)
  • Optional A2SD via the online kitchen, including A2SD+ or Link2SD
  • Optional AdFree modified for Desire
  • Optional Jbed Java
  • Optional ROM Manager
  • Optional Titanium Backup
  • Optional Wavesecure via the online kitchen (installed to system partition for maximum security)
  • Optional WiFi Status indicator
  • Optional Trackball Wake
  • Optional Gingerbread Keyboard
  • Optional 32.54.00.32U_5.14.05.17 radio
  • Removed 'Learn More' icon
  • More stuff i've probably forgotten
Note: This ROM is not odexed, but includes 'cachedalvikcache' to negate the effects of deodexed /system files. In this regard it has no disadvantage vs: odexed ROMs apart from a longer first boot time. You must also reboot once after initial setup to regain full space on /data.

Changelog

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

Installation

To install this ROM:
  • Ensure you have are able to launch the custom recovery image (see 'requirements' above)

In addition to the kitchen, 3 prebaked downloads are available - a version with the default set of MoDaCo additions, a version with the default set of MoDaCo additions and A2SD and a version without the MoDaCo additions.

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?
