I love all the work that people have been doing with the 2.1 ROMs. What I don't like is the amount of rubbish that T-Mobile/Huawei etc decided to put into the ROMs making our phones slower than they s

Is it possible to change the messaging button to use Handcent rather then the stock one?

Edit

Don't worry, just worked it out

Could you enter bootloader (vol down + red button) and give me the build date and size of both data and system partitions please (start and len).

SOLVED: problematic SD card...made in TAIWAN :)

Whats your ETA on the next update to this?

In the words of 3D Realms. "When it's done" :)

I've managed to odex all the apps in /system/app/ which frees up some space on /data as dalvik isn't storing anything for these apps. By default on my ROM, Darktremore a2sd does not move dalvik-cache to the SD. If you want to do this then you need to open up an adb shell and do:

a2sd cache

as the instructions state. This also means that in it's default state you will appear to lose space on /data when installing apps. It's better to keep it in this mode as not everybody has a Class 6 SD card, and moving dalvik to SD with slower cards can cause issues.

On the to-do list are some cosmetic tweaks. I want to totally eradicate all trace of T-Mobile or RBM from the ROM. There isn't any pink to be found (yet) but every so often you get a hint of green, and the setupwizard is the one from RMB2 ROM so I need to look into this.

I'll also try and trim the system partition down a bit to help people that are experiencing issues installing the rom.

it's always the way with fake SD cards. I bought an original Samsung 8Gb Class 6 for £16 and it was money well spent.

Also consider upgrading this to ext3

the kernel wouldn't take advantage of ext3 according to...

cat /proc/filesystems

nodev   sysfs

nodev   rootfs

nodev   bdev

nodev   proc

nodev   debugfs

nodev   sockfs

nodev   pipefs

nodev   anon_inodefs

nodev   tmpfs

nodev   inotifyfs

nodev   devpts

		ext2

nodev   ramfs

		vfat

nodev   nfs

nodev   fuse

		fuseblk

nodev   fusectl

		yaffs

		yaffs2

nodev   rpc_pipefs

Thanks for that. I did read somewhere that stock roms have ext3 support. I guess it was wrong.

Strange I formatted the 2nd partition as ext3 and it has worked, im installing apps on it now

Might just be the backwards-compatible nature of ext3..

You might not be getting the extra features of ext3 over ext2.

Yeah, it works but I didn't know it wasn't taking full advantage of it. Ah well at least it's ready for any MCR kernels if they come :)

EXT3 is useless for what you want to do with the partition. Most of the data on its will be static IE Your not moving files around folders so the main feature of EXT3, Journalling, will be pointless. If you put the dalvik cache on the partition the overhead of the journal is likely to degrade performance and finally (in essay mode tonight for some reason) fragmentation of SD cards doesn't matter due to the fact SD's have a seek time of 0.02ns.

Been playing with it for about an hour so far and no issues. Dalvik cache moved to sd and it still seems stable and quick.

Will see how it fairs through the week, but all good so far.

This is a fantastic ROM! No install issues, quick & responsive, great looking, everything works (so far), no FC or reboots, and my first time with A2SD (going flawlessly). Thank you so much for your work!

Ah it works, but got the black text issue which I can fix via build.prop easily enough.

Yep I got that as well.I did

CODE

ro.config.hw_customizeType=01

Replace with:

CODE

ro.config.hw_customizeType=02

But the clock text is still black :)

Just tried your rom - it works great - I've had no problems installing and running. But only had a brief chance to play.

Just wanted to report that the analogue clock widget does not work - I just had a white box on the homescreen with text saying there is a problem loading the widget.

Thanks for sharing your ROM.

I just changed

ro.config.hw_iscustomize=false

to

ro.config.hw_iscustomize=true

And changed type to 02 obviously.

:)
