This is collaboration between myself and DjSteve, with some huge contributions from ADW_Maniac and others, you know who you are
Having spent months on this I was given a good working kernel to use,
So the full rom zip at the bottom of the post has that kernel in it
To get the best out of this rom :
You must flash these AMSS & DSP files from fastboot
if you're not happy flashing that then please don't use this rom.
now onto the nice stuff
this is a 2.3.3 rom, its pretty quick overall, and VERY stable.
it has EXT4 fs (tweaked till its nipples bleed)
it has some very funky memory hacks
OLD INFO____ [size="2"][color="#111111"][font="Arial, Verdana, sans-serif"]the kernel is based on Dells alpha kernel code, (which is why some stuff doesn't work too well)[/font][/color][/size] [size="2"][color="#111111"][font="Arial, Verdana, sans-serif"]its a mix of lots of different things from AOSP code, to dell binaries (we're changing what we can as we go, but frankly its not easy reverse engineering these)[/font][/color][/size]
3d scores, IO scores are pretty quick
Linpack scores > 41
Fingerprint is set to 2.3.3 CRESPO to allow all market apps to be shown
Its not themed at all, so native gingerbread stylee
I've included the following key functional FREE apps (support their devs please)
VTL launcher, its a launcher designed for landscape and very configurable, also uses ADW themes
total commander rc1
volume Plus (from the mighty meltus),its gingerbread so we can have a proper equalizer!
Clocksync (helps with the timedrift)
Hackers Keyboard (stock keyboard but better!)
YOU WILL NEED TO FACTORY RESET if you flash it over a 2.2 rom
If you're flashing over 2.3 build then at least delete dalvik cache.
but factory reset is recommended
BACK UP YOUR SDCARD BEFORE FLASHING (at least the any photos!) failure to do so may see them eaten by the phantom photo fancier.
thoroughly recommend the following apps to go with this
lgCamera (very tweakable 720p camcorder!)
Fastweb install (works fully here)
GET YOUR COUNTRIES GPS.conf from http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1233359
extract it and copy it (with total commander) to etc/gps.conf
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Please note this is still a WORK IN PROGRESS >>>>>>>>>>
Please do not complain!
get it from
please check the md5sum of the zip before flashing it
alpha kernel source
