NOTE:

You MUST WIPE YOUR DEVICE before flashing this ROM UNLESS you are upgrading from an earlier release. This is due to the resigning of key components with the AOSP platform key, to facilitate skinning / customising etc.

Features at this time:

  • Based on the GRJ22 (2.3.4) release
  • Packaged for ClockworkMod 3.0.0.0+
  • Rebuilt using the MoDaCo MCR optimisation scripts
  • Includes MCK custom kernel with TUN and CIFS modules
  • Incorporates supercurio's EXT4 performance tweak
  • Full up to date Google experience + additional apps (including new look Market)
  • HSPA icon differentiation ('H' icon when transferring data via HSPA)
  • Insecure boot image
  • su / Superuser.apk root
  • Support for running scripts from /etc/init.d at startup
  • Terminfo support (for nano etc)
  • Busybox
  • Optional 'allow SIP over non-WiFi connections' in the kitchen
  • Semi-transparent notification pull-down
  • Optional 'Spare Parts' app
  • Optional radio updates (latest update recommended!)
  • Removed Browser zoom buttons
  • framework-res and core libraries / apks are signed with the 'platform' certificate from AOSP, aiding those who wish to edit the framework-res / SystemUI.apk to theme. Simply extract, edit, resign with the platform certificate and push the file.
  • A bunch of other stuff that i've forgotten
Installation is recommended via ClockworkMod recovery, which MUST be version 3.0.0.0 or above. ENSURE YOU HAVE A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING!

Downloads

Prebake download

  • Gr15 (default kitchen options below) - DOWNLOAD (Mediafire Pro) - MD5: ba527ad6b4956e14951c1f0eb70b0ac3
Kitchen download

  • A online kitchen is also available below for you to bake a Custom Custom ROM. :)
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 releases and access to the the online kitchens.

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.

Just to re-iterate what i've said in the intial topic, a wipe before install is MANDATORY, the ONLY exception to this is if you are upgrading from my r1 release.

Hello Paul! Nice To Be Home Again!


First I would like to say Thank You for Your work and contribution! ;)

Quick question about the HSPA Signal: When you mention HSPA you mean HSPDA for Your U.S. Counterpart Friends Like me right? Or is there any Differnce from UK versions to US Versions? Since The device is Tech not HSPA Ready :)

Thanks!

Once Again, hat tip goes to Paul, First Rom on The Nexus S just Like the Nexus One.

The device is HSPA ready, but not HSPA+ ready.

HSPA = HSDPA/HSUPA.

Nevermind me, I'm an idiot.. hadn't noticed the stock android widget had a "weather only" option.

Thanks Paul! I'm looking to try this r2 ROM, but I have a noobish issue.

I rooted using your superboot method (which worked perfectly - I now get the open padlock when I boot the phone & have FULL root :) ). I installed Clockwork recovery 3 via ROM manager & it says current installed version is 3.0.0.

How do I actually access Clockwork recovery to do a nandroid backup? (Vol up + Power brings me to fastboot, but then I get the standard Android recovery)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance!

EDIT: I just re-flashed the recovery via fastboot now Clockwork is working... time to try this ROM...

Hi Paul,

Flashing from ClockworkMod, I wipe Dalvik, then Factory Reset, and Cache again, just to make sure. Flash - seems to go fine (but only takes about 6 seconds?). Seems to be no errors, but the "Writing system.." is pretty quick?

Reboot.
"Google"
Been hung on that for 10 mins now...

WIP r2 from above. Have checked MD5 - perfect match.
Yay for nandroid :)
Sorry - can't do more checks, etc, I need the phone back up and running!

I'm having the same issue.... full wipe, install r2 but then get stuck at 'Google' screen (with open padlock beneath it).

OK, so i've wiped, re-downloaded, re-flashed and it's all working (and it didn't flash super-fast).

The only thing I can think of is that the version of clockworkmod recovery you're using isn't the latest? I'm using 3.0.0.0?
