The end of EC05 is here.
With EI22 comes the uphill climb of Epic development once again. This means that the journey of RandomROM Phoenix ends here. I will be uploading one final version with some minor tweaks, updater-script, build.prop, and archive updates. Mostly it will just be some perfectionist adjustments before I declare it finished. From this point on, I will be focusing my attention on Gingerbread roms for the Epic 4G. As many of you know, EI22 may still not be the final official Gingerbread (recall DK28, EB13, EC05?). As such, it is just too much effort to focus on so many versions of Gingerbread while dragging Froyo along with it.
For those of you still hesitant towards climbing out of your comfy, cozy Froyo cave, let me assure you that Gingerbread is greatly improved over EC05. It comes with battery improvements, interface enhancements, smoother performance, and just some great changes overall. The only drawbacks up until this point have been random reboots and Google Framework FCs which thus far seem to be solved with our new source-code. With that, it can only improve from here, leaving Froyo to go the way of Eclair.
It's a little bit sad, as RandomROM started on Froyo with the original RandomROM, then Final, then Plus, then Phoenix, and then Phoenix 2 and the original AIO mod. But this time, Final is Final
If EI22 proves to be as stable as we all hope it to be, then ThunderHawk 3 will be the foreseeable future of RandomROM on the Epic 4G, leaving behind EG22 and EH17 versions. Pushing 8 rom .zips for one phone to the internet was a huge undertaking on my part to provide all current possibilities, and it was fun, but it's time to refocus.
As far as Serenicity, the EC05 version of that will likely also be discontinued as a Gingerbread version is solely pursued in its stead.
I will continue to support my Froyo creations as best I can for dedicated downloaders.
Thank you for your patronage and please enjoy ThunderHawk
Happy Veteran's Day!
