Arrow Installation Instructions, Requirements and Frequently Asked Questions
v2.14.2 - 12/28/2010
- fixed - bluetooth not functioning on Dream/G1
- fixed - broken 3G/H toggle in SpareParts
- fixed - broken DC2extXfs toggle in SpareParts not disabling when enabled
- fixed/updated - the kernel base to pershoot's latest 2.6.35.10 base with some misc critical fixes ...
--- Headphone jack issues
--- battery is latest notice-ably longer from what I can see
- THEME Templates are up in the OP now -
--- NOTEtoThemers: Only SpareParts changed (apk wise) from 2.14.1, so that's the only apk that needs to be updated in your themes. ---

v2.14.1 - Initial Froyo-based Changelog - 12/15/2010
"Hell hath frozen over" ...

Well I promised if we ever got "official" drivers I would update this ROM ... and well ... with much delay we finally did!

So as @olearpy would put it ... it appears "Hell hath frozen over" ...

I really thought it would never happen ... and thus a very long delay occurred ... sorry 'bout that all. :/


- The is my initial Froyo-based dream/sapphire ROM, hope it's enjoyed.
- I will not be posting an initial "extensive" changelog. Instead my Nexus1 work should be referenced HERE for a thorough changelog (POST #2).
- Differences from the Nexus1 ROM and initial build CREDITS will be listed in this initial changelog.
- First the credits ...
--- BloodyWasHere - for the loaner MT3G - So could finally put this build together!!! Thanks again man!
--- Pershoot - for his 2.6.35.x - OC/UV kernel code (is completely his, only my configurations) - Thanks again man!
--- ezterry - for the 2708 contributions ... ty
--- CyanogenMOD - for the msm7k libs and misc other junk I can't even remember :/
- Differences from the Nexus1 build
- No LED Color options
- No HTC Apps (*for now* - space issues mainly - we'll see :/)
- No FMRadio
- No dalvik-cache to /cache options
--- All other options/components made it over from the Nexus1 build, unless I'm forgetting some (which is very possible!) - will update as they come to light
NOTE: It's *highly* recommended you use Oldstyle-Apps2SD and Dalvik-cache-2-SD in SpareParts if you're a dream/G1 user ... as you'll only have ~53MB free on /data after installation otherwise. :/




Installation Instructions

1) Rooted phone with a recovery image that can flash testkey ROM's (a.k.a Amon_RA's or ClockWorkMOD/ROMManager)

2) Download update.zip from POST #1 in downloads at the botton and copy to your phone's SDCard.

3) Boot into recovery and perform a nandroid backup to be safe, flash and enjoy!

4) Then flash (alternatively) ... either the EBI1 or 2708 kernel if needed.

See POST #6 for installation instructions.

PLEASE NOTE: These are now v2.6.1 themes, meaning you must be running the expansion pack v2.6.1 to run these themes. Also, do check out the GUSTO app to setup your theme profile.

Also, if you're looking for the "stock theme" OR how to remove a theme and go back to stock look, please flash the appropriate "theme template" found in POST#1.

Enjoy and let the original themers/artists know you appreciate their work!!!

Preferred Installation Procedure (Tested, Tried and True)!

Prerequisites - REQUIREMENTS
1) Root.
2) Recovery image capable of flashing ROM's not signed with OTA-release-keys, I recommend Cyanogen's 1.4 or Amon_RA's 1.5.0 image.

If you need help ROOTING or installing a recovery image ... PLEASE visit LucidREM's thread ... HERE....!!!!

He has provided fairly clear instructions and is always willing to help out those requiring assistance with this!

NOT REQUIRED - BUT STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
1) If you have a Dream/G1 ... Flash the Latest Radio, 2.22.19_26I, get it HERE!
2) A SDcard partition with (1) FAT32 partition and if you're a G1/dream user, (1) ext2/ext3/ext4 partition. I'd recommend at least ~320MB on the ext2/ext3/ext4 partition.


Installing Base Rooted ROM, Expansion Packs and Themes - Instructions

1) BACKUP ALL YOUR PHONE DATA AND SDCARD Contents to a computer, external HD, or whatever, by whatever means you can. (Always better Safe than ever sorry!)
2) If you are coming from another Apps2SD ROM or you use an ext2/ext3/ext4 partition for anything otherwise... In order to guarantee you won't have any issues with the install you should remove app, app-private, expstick and the dalvik-cache directories on your /system/sd (ext2/ext3/ext4) partition, or you may simply reformat it. If you backed up your whole SDcard, this shouldn't be a huge issue. - Yes you'll have to reinstall your apps. You can try to skip this step, but if the install fails, rinse, wash, repeat and don't skip this step.

3) Download the desired base rooted ROM from the original post (and expansion pack is desired, recommended).
4) Copy the base rooted ROM (and expansion pack if you plan to use it, recommended) .zip files to your phone's SDcard. (DO NOT PLACE IT IN A FOLDER).
5) Power-Off your phone.
6) Press and Hold (Home+Power) buttons at the same time to boot into recovery mode.
7) Perform a data wipe by pressing (Alt+w), may have to confirm by pressing HOME (it will prompt).
8) Flash the base rooted ROM using the anyzip (or choose update) option.
9) When finished, if you want the expansion pack, flash the expansion pack using the anyzip (or choose update) option.
10) When finished, reboot from recovery by pressing (Home+Back).
11) Once your phone has booted up, sign into your Google account (by whatever means) through the setup/data-sync wizard.
12) Launch the "MarketApp" and accept the terms, download some app you're familiar with by going to 'My Downloads' or search for one!
13) Now, the base and Expansion installation complete, if you want to install a theme, place the theme.zip file onto your sdcard.
14) Reboot into recovery.
15) Flash the theme_update.zip file using the anyzip (or choose update) option.
16) Reboot your phone!

That's it! You're Finished!

Enjoy!


ROM & ExpansionPack - Updating
Expansion Packs can be applied on top of previous Expansion Packs (or base ROMs) without wiping ... unless otherwise noted in the changelog! So read the changelog!!!
Do also note, you will typically have to re-apply your theme after updating! Sometimes you may need to download an updated/compatible new theme, so read the changelog!!!



That's IT! - Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I control features like compcache, linux-swap, CPU, etc?

A) Most features of the build are controlled with the terminal
command, 'expsetup'. Run this in the terminal after the 'su'
command, it's menu-driven. Else, you can optional employ
a user.conf, see changelog and example for details.

So what's the difference between the AOSP, ADP & TMO builds?

A) The AOSP ROM supports ALL android languages, besides that,
it is the same as the ADP ROM. ADP & AOSP/ADP builds are more
theme-able ... thus I will post more/better themes for these builds,
period. That said, you can check out
TheOfficial ROM DB Matrix for my ROM's HERE at androidspin!


So what's the deal with these "expansion packs"?

A) All of these ROM's are basic rooted versions of their official release.
So if TMO has a release, a matching "base rooted ROM" is posted.
This is simply a rooted form of that release w/no advanced rooted
features. Now, if you want advanced root features such as compcache,
apps2sd, tethering, etc ... you must install the expansion pack!
Further, if you are a MT3G (sapphire-32B) user, you must also install
the expansion pack in order for this build to work properly.


I can flash the base rooted ROM with no problem, but I get
"black/blank" screens when I install the expansion pack, what gives?


A) The most likely cause of this is leftovers from another build on your ext
partition. Reformat your ext partition, wipe, flash the base and reflash the
expansion pack.


Whenever I run 'su' or an app that runs 'su' I get a blank screen and an
eventual FC. How do I fix this, please help!?


A) USB Debugging must be turned ON. Goto Settings -> Applications ->
Development -> USB Debugging must be CHECKED!


I'm using AdvancedLauncher and it keeps ForceClosing when I
auto-rotate the phone?


A) This has been noted by several users when using specific widgets.
Specifically, the Taskiller widget has been noted to cause this problem.
Remove the offending widgets that are not yet Donut compatible.

I can understand the friend's insistence. I know that I've flashed to ROMs in the past (on my old Excalibur) that omitted or messed up a feature that I had gotten used to or needed, or have flashed to a ROM that was overly flamboyant, versus a typically cleaner build.

Still, I've been reading great things about the Android ROMs by Cyanogen, JesusFreke, et al.
