How can I install contacts.apk that I took off of the r3.1 ROM ? I read somewhere about having it signed or something but can't find that info anywhere now. Also, when I click on phone on the main page, it takes me to my sim contacts plus a few facebook contacts, I wanna get rid of the facebook contacts but it won't give me the option of deleting them.

Any suggestions?

You probably can't, you need to look at one from a 2.2 rom.

Hello

I install Rom and have Problem Titanium Backup.

" Sorry, I could not acquire root privileges. This application will "not" work ! Please verify that your ROM ist rooted and includes Busy Box, and try again "

Please Help, THX

I always get this problem, just click the 'Problems?' button and it fixes all your problems believe it or not.

I can't find a rom that has the contacts.apk pre baked into it.

Any AOSP or N1 port should have it.

Anyone else getting the constant syncing icon? I'm sure its draining the battery.

you need to bake friendstream into your rom...

Ok, I found one that was in the DeFrost ROM but I must be doing something wrong obviously because I couldn't get it to install again.

So, I downloaded the DeFrost ROM and below in the image you will see the layout. What do I do now? Do I just drag the contacts.apk and put it in my SD Card and install it with an apk installer? Because I tried that and it doesn't work.

Great Rom, was never really gonna flash by Desire until i saw this forum. Very easy and quick to do, the only thing im having problems with is setCPU, is there a way to use it with this ROM? I have Juicedefender working and can limit the CPU from that but i prefer setCPU and its profiles. If anyone has a guide on how to install setCPU and get it working on this 2.2 Rom that would be a great help.

'3G Watchdog' working for anyone on this Rom or 2.2 in general?

Doesn't go up value while connected.

'Net Counter' on the other hand works but '3G Watchdog' was more accurate, so just out of curiosity anyone tried it?

Hi there,

Having an issue with images taken using the camera. The images are viewable on the phone but when you plug the phone into a computer the pictures aren't shown in windows explorer (they definately are still on the phone though).

Could their be a permissions not being set issue as I've encountered similar things with Linux before where you have to set permissions on files correctly to be viewable in windows.

Had same problem once. reformat solved it.

So far the only issues I'm having are the Sense homescreen crashing/restarting and the Wireless randomly dropping out/disconnecting. The only way to get wireless back is to turn it off and back on again.

You will need to remove the HTCContacts app, then it will install, however on 2.2 you will start to get FC's from ContactsProvider.apk

I did start work on porting this, but the FC's were proving to be a constant pain.

Also you can't just take a ContactsProvider from a AOSP rom, it won't work.

how about this, is it possible to get PEOPLE app when you press the PHONE on the main screen, instead of whatever is the default that comes up when you press PHONE.

I have extract Contacts.apk from last CyanoGen for Desire and simply puts on /system via signed update.zip ... Seems work fine, but I still have R4. You are speaking about R5 or all 2.2 Desire MCR have some problems ?

I am on R5 but would love to try your method. can you just upload the file that needs to be put in the phone's system to somewhere? Rapidshare, mediafire, etc...Also, can you tell me where exactly it needs to be placed, or do I just flash it?

Thnx
