Been using this ROM for a couple of days now, all working fine on my TFT, once I had usedthe earlier version of clockwork anyway.

The only weird issue I;m having is that for some reason it won't sync anything with Facebook (I'm new to android so I didn't even know it could do this, but got shown on my friend's phone yesterday). When you try to add a Facebook account in the settings - accounts & sync, it doesn't add it to the list of accounts ont he phone. the only one there is my gmail.

Please forgive me if I'm doing something simple wrng (I even deleted and re-installed the FB app) as like I say I'm new to android, but neither me or my friend could figure it out...

Don't think this has been already asked Freekers, but does the replacement Gallery App still allow you to set dock icons for LauncherPro? All replacements I've tried before don't seem to work with setting icons.

Hi, excellent rom which i've now settled on after trying most. However, i have noticed that the dialer is using more battery than android system under "partial wake time" in spare parts. Can someone else have a look and see what they are getting. Battery life does seem to be a bit lower than I usually get. After about 10 hrs, the dialer has used about 1.5 hrs of wake time.

Freekers,

A big thank you for this...I have tried quite a few roms, but like yours the best. Installed no problems yesterday. One issue though. The Gallery app still FC's. Is there anything i can do to address this or do i need to wait for a fix?

Once again, sterling work bud!

About RELEASE:
This is a customised ROM based upon the latest BladeVillain 1.1.0 ROM by Kendon, which is based on the hungarian ZTE Blade ROM, which is more recent than the Orange ROM and also a bit more recent than the French blade ROM.
All credit goes to Kendon @ VillainRom for creating the original BladeVillain ROM !! I just added/removed/replaced some stuff/apps.
Please head over to VillainRom and encourage Kendon to resume working on this magnificent ROM !

This is the first ROM I ever 'created' so go easy on me...

ANDROID:
* Based on the Hungarian TM_P729TV1.0.0B02 ROM
* Added Blade WiFi Fix
* Added WiFi Keep-Alive (See note #1)
* Added Titanium backup
* Added Launcher Pro (Faster than stock launcher. Stock launcher is still included to be able to change wallpapers and use the stock wallpapers. See note #8)
* Replaced standard 3D Gallery app with PictureFolder as gallery app (3D Gallery eats CPU and lags)
* Removed XT9IME (FC's on a lot of languages)
* Removed ZTE Taskmanager (FC's when trying to watch CPU monitor/Resources)
* Removed ZTE bootanimation and replaced it with Android stock
* Removed fcctest (emc emissions compliance tester, shouldn't be on the phone)
* Removed QcNvTest.apk and ChiperTest.apk. (Neither are standard Android apps and don't appear to add anything useful)
* Disabled annoying camera shutter and video recording beep
* (FAT Edition Only) Added Adfree Android (See note #2)
* (FAT Edition Only) Added Spare Parts (See note #3)
* (FAT Edition Only) Added Autokiller (See note #4)
* (FAT Edition Only) Added Watchdog Lite (See note #5)

Original BladeVillain 1.0.1 release notes which also apply to 1.1.0:

Source: http://www.villainro...deVillain-1.0.1
NOTES:
(1) After flashing this ROM, remember to go into WiFi Keep-Alive and set the desired Wi-Fi Behaviour to 'Always On'.
Also, go into Advanced Options and Enable Workaround 1,2,3 and 4. Afterwards, reboot phone for changes to take effect.

(2) AdFree removes most ads in the browser and other apps. It does this by nullifying requests to known hostnames serving ads.
After flashing this ROM, remember to go into AdFree and update your local hosts file
To do this, start AdFree from the menu, allow SuperUser Access and press 'Download&Install Hosts'. Afterwards, reboot phone for changes to take effect.

(3) ProTip: After flashing this ROM, go into SpareParts and set the 'Windows animations' and 'Transition animations' speed to 'Fast' for a smooth and fast UI.

(4) Autokiller may sound like an agressive Auto-Taskkiller, but it's not. Please see http://geekfor.me/faq/autokiller/ for more information about Autokiller.
After flashing this ROM, remember to go into Autokiller and choose your desired profile. I recommand using the 'Optimum' profile.
To do this, start Autokiller from the menu, press your phone's Menu button and select 'Default profile'. From there, select the Optimum profile.

(5) Watchdog monitors your background apps and warns you if they are misbehaving, in other words eating up your CPU thus causing battery drainage.
After flashing this ROM, remember to go into Watchdog Lite and set the CPU threshold (I recommand 30%).
To do this, start Watchdog Lite from the menu, press your phone's Menu button and click on 'CPU threshold. In the new menu that pops up, select 30%.
Do not change the CPU interpoling interval. 1 minute is a good value. A too low value will cause battery drainage and a too high value will cause that Watchdog can't operate correctly.
For more information about Watchdog, please go to http://www.zomut.com/watchdog

(6) If your camera is black and white, install 'VM Heap Tool' from the market and lower your VM Heap Size to 32

(7) If you want to have the camera shutter and video recording beep back, install Root Explorer and go to system\media\audio\ui
Rename camera_click.old to camera_click.ogg and rename VideoRecord.old to VideoRecord.ogg

(8) Make sure to use LauncherPro as default launcher.
If you accedently set the stock Launcher as default Launcher, download HomeSwitcher from the market and set LauncherPro as default launcher.
DOWNLOAD:
Customised BladeVillain 1.1.0 FAT RLS4
Customised BladeVillain 1.1.0 LITE RLS4

Last Updated: 12-12-2010 (RLS4)
HISTORY:
RLS4:
- Updated PictureFolder to latest version which shouldn't FC after ROM flash.
- Removed QcNvTest.apk and ChiperTest.apk. Neither are standard Android apps and don't appear to add anything useful. (Thanks Ash_P!)
RLS3:
- Added stock Launcher (Launcher2.apk) so that you are be able to use your own wallpapers again as well with the stock ones. Make sure to use LauncherPro as default launcher.
If you accedently set the stock Launcher as default Launcher, download HomeSwitcher from the market and set LauncherPro as default launcher.
- Updated PictureFolder apk. I hope this solves the FC issues, as reported by some of you.....

RLS2:
- Replaced non-working old 2DGallery app with PictureFolder as gallery app.
INSTALLATION:
- Copy zip of the desired ROM flavour to SD-card.
- Boot into recovery (volume down + power on)
**BEFORE FLASHING, MAKE A NANDBACKUP FIRST!!**
- Wipe data/cache unless you are reinstalling
- Install zip from sdcard

Again, all credit goes to Kendon @ VillainRom !! He's the original creator of this ROM.
I just felt this update was necessary because the instant FC of the XT9IME keyboard can be confusing for Android beginners, thinking they did something wrong with flashing the ROM. Since this error comes instantly after booting the ROM after flashing (during the Google Account Wizard) you can't change the input method yet and you're basically stuck.


Hi,tried this today on a new sf from orange with a tft screen and it would not install,recovery kept stopping with a error about not supported, any help would be appreciated.

Hey, I'm liking the latest rom.

I have a problem with voicemail notification though: I got a voicemail message, listened to it and deleted it; however the notification remains in the top status bar and it lists a number which I have found to be hungarian (built in from the original rom?). I would really appreciate if I could get rid of the notification.

i've had once this on a phone from long ago; i rang my provider and they forced a reset of that voicemail flag.... ie: it might not be your phone, might be a glitch on the network...

I've had this also, and you're right it is a left-over from the origins of this rom. The number of viocemail is for T-mobile in Hungary. Here's what you need to do, go into settings--Call settings--Voicemail settings and highlight Voicemail settings which will bring up the Hungarian T-mobile voicemail number. Change this number to a non-existent number (it would not allow me to edit it to my real carrier's voicemail number for some reason). As an extra precuation i also disabled voicemail, since my carrier charges for their retrievals anyway. I now use an app, from the market, called AutoReply (free) which allows the phone to automatically respond to missed calls with an auto SMS whose contents you can set yourself. Since my carrier charges for voicemail retrieval but gives me some 500 free SMS this was the obvious answer for me, your circumstances may differ. What I really would like is an answering machine app (like i had on my old Symbian) that will answer (and record) calls for me if i do not answer them within a number of rings.

Installed this ROM using Stevenharperuk's instructions in this thread and worked beautifully on Orange TFT version of San Fran/blade. I had to do the wipe cache and system/user data bit and reflash as it got stuck on the 'android' word screen first time but second time a charm.
thanks!

One bug - Picture Folder still Force Closes when I try to load it

Grateful for your work, but please can you tell me what the MD5 CHKSUM should be for this install, so I can confirm all is well before installation? Can't find it anywhere, unless as a newb I'm looking in the wrong places......

I got the same issue with Picture Folder (QuickPic), but as soon as I upgraded it from the market, it started working.

Er - tells you on the first page?

No difference in "speed" between the 2.

Most folk download the Fat versions of ROMs and hack out what they don't need....

When using Handcent SMS, and I long-press on the typing box, a menu appears (as it is supposed to). However, instead of displaying white letters on a black background, it displays black letters on a black background. Thus, the only way of me reading it, is by holding an option and reading while the background turns orange.

Any idea why this is?
