Thanks for doing this.

Worth installing just for sorting out the LCD density for those of us that are too lazy to sort it out on the original ROM :)

Thanks for the ROM.
Besides the known bugs this ROM really improves the Blade's performance.

Feels almost as good as my Nexus One.

Appreciating your efforts on this.

I'm paying attention to progress on Blade Froyos, but really wish OPs would update the first post with changelogs and more detailed bugs/issues. The only issue mentioned on the first post is YouTube not working, but reading the thread contradicts this. Why update the title with the current date if the OP itself isn't?

Anyone notice that Acrobat Reader allows force closes as well as You Tube :) Agree though, it does speed the phone up :)

I'm now using this as my day-to-day ROM. It took a bit of fiddling to get things working but it seems OK. Market seems to work now and there are loads of threads around about the market being dodgy lately so I think it might have just been the market itself.

Good things about this ROM:
  • Most of the alpha bugs fixed (root works, calendar works, resolution is right)
  • Wifi works better (had issues with WPA Enterprise on stock ROM but fine now)
  • Graphics performance great (animated backgrounds, 3D games etc. all seem to without stuttering now)
  • App2SD works (Apps can run off SD card so space is much less of a problem)
  • Exchange Sync works (Email, contacts and calendar sync with Exchange works nicely without hacks)
  • GPS works as normal
  • USB drivers in the Alpha thread work fine for this.
Titanium backup didn't wouldn't restore my apps at first for me, but clicking the "problems" button in the app and allowing it to reinstall BusyBox fixed that.
The Market couldn't log me in either, but logging in to Google Talk allowed me to set up the account and then all the Google Apps seem to work properly.

I haven't tried using the radio yet, I suspect that might not work, but we'll see. Otherwise it seems pretty usable and a step forward from stock or r4. :)

in case you didn't catch this. There's a suspicion of a potential security/privacy threat on this leaked rom:

http://android.modac...ade-phone-home/

It looks like the device’s rom tries to collect data from your device and send it via SMS to some number in China. But that’s not all, if the device fails to do this, it will block the radio chip in the device.

This is kind of off topic, I am on 2.1 eclair at the moment and my phone is locked to orange, If I install 2.2 Froyo (which has the ability to "unlock" the phone to any network) and I go back to 2.1, will the unlock feature go away?

Will it hurt the battery if the battery indicator shows incorrect values?

Not quite sure if I can answer your last question but the OP stated in the first post that he had not had time to fully check what was working and that he was not going to be available until Monday.

I asked in the other thread but didn't get any answers: If I follow the install instructions, does it result in the loss of apps, settings and contacts? And how do I apply a backup (I have made one in Clockwork) ? :)
