Thanks to jchamier we now have the new ROM that Orange UK are shipping: OUK_P729BV1.0.0B08. Build date is "Wed Oct 20 09:48:18 CST 2010" with ro.com.google.gmsversion=2.1_r9.

OUK_P729BV1.0.0B08.R2 (zip file of boot and system for use with ClockworkMod)

OUK_P729BV1.0.0B08.recovery (hmm... probably not the original recovery image but ClockworkMod -- anyway, use fastboot to flash it to the recovery partition - MD5=0733acd513717f2dc7ee08809bd7ea20)

Edit: it's not the original recovery partition, is it? Oh well.

Edit 2: updated to R2 with more accurate file permissions (for rooting).

Well, let's see how long it takes the ROM builders to come up with a custom ROM! ;)

Interesting to see Midnight Bowling and Uno have made it over from the Other ROM.

And that they changed the device name....

Of course, minds superior to mine will realise that as the backup was made using ClockworkMod, the recovery partition is actually ClockworkMod and not the original one -- SORRY!

I don't work for Orange, but from observation:

- UNO OD trial added.
- Midnight Bowling 2 'trial' added.
- Sound Recorder no longer crashes.
- Orange Messenger added.
- More Languages to pick from.


I've not noticed anything else.. still screwed up the wall papers in Launcher2 tho..

boot

Yeah, that'll be the problem. Just flash it to the recovery partition instead ("fastboot flash recovery OUK_P729BV1.0.0B08.recovery.img"). Put the new ROM zip on the root of your SD card and then flash it using ClockwordMod ("choose zip from SD") and it'll update your boot partition.

Seems to be back to normal now thank god, so we can't use superboot on this model version?

Also just to add I couldn't use the lastest version of clockworkmod to flash this ROM back on, had to revert back to 2.5.0.9

Maybe not the place to bring this up, but Paul is doing himself a dis-service by not being more public about the bugs with the most recent build.. I'd stick with 2.5.0.9 for now..

Phew! So we don't actually need a new recovery image -- that's a relief. The issues you're having look like they may all be to do with the new screen?

Oh, and just in case anyone hasn't worked it out: this ROM runs fine on my 1st Gen (OLED) SanFran. In fact, waiting to see if the dreaded wifi issue rears its head (which is possible seeing as Orange supposedly fixed someone's SanFran remotely).
