Magnolia for Inc. 2, First Beta 8/21/11

Screenshots (I took these when I was in an area with no Verizon service, sorry...)

Introducing Magnolia for the Incredible 2. This is a mostly Sense 2.1 Gingerbread ROM with a few 3.0 elements added. It has many customizations and features to make you phone visually appealing and convenient to use. I sincerely hope you enjoy the ROM!

  • Based on the Official 3.02.605.1 OTA;
  • Uses jcase's OC kernel;
  • Added Sense 3.0 lockscreen, USB connection menu, and camera (thanks to newtoroot for his ROMs, whose ROMs I pulled apart to learn how to get these to work);
  • Matte sense skin ("Magnolia" in skin picker), most of the "shiny" elements of sense UI have been matted for a more refined look;
  • Modded Friendstream, News and Twitter widgets to replace the (imho) hideous stock ones;
  • All apps Rosie button opens Maxim's AppFolders, a truly customizable and usable app drawer replacement (stock app drawer version available at bottom of post. Just backup and flash the zip. It's nothing fancy now, but I will make it pretty & depaginated soon);
  • Extra settings enabled in Quick Settings menu;
  • Right button mapped to browser (more mappings to come);
  • 4-in-1 power menu;
  • Location and ADB statusbar icons hidden;
  • Percentage battery mod by chrisDDD;
  • Recent apps bar hidden and notifications pull down themed to fit Magnolia skin look;
  • Custom dialer
  • Speed and stability tweaks for smooth, snappy and stable performance;
  • Most apps commonly considered bloatware removed, with some handy apps added (e.g., Netflix, Google Voice, Astro, XDA, ROM Manager);
  • Removed HTC Car Panel and added Google CarHome;
  • Mor I am sure I forgot and much more to come...

Known Issues
  • The kernel defaults to 1.6 ghz, if you experience lockups, please use a CPU control app to turn the speed down. The next release will default to 1ghz.
  • Some elements still need to be themed.

Installation Instructions

ATTENTION: This ROM has been tested by me and others, but, like all custom ROMs, it mat have bugs or other issues I do not know about. Accordingly, you flash the ROM at your own risk, and I accept NO responsibility for any consequences that may arise for you, your phone or others as a result of flashing and/or using this ROM.
  • MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP of your current ROM;
  • Download Magnolia here:
  • Do a full wipe (factory data reset and format cache). If you do not perform a full wipe, you may experience bugs/issues, please do not post them;
  • Flash via ROM Manager or CWM Recovery;
  • Reboot and let it load up;
  • Go to menu-->personalize-->skins and select "Magnolia" skin and apply;
  • Enjoy!!!
  • While this ROM runs fine without a CPU manager, you need one to overclock. I use SetCPU at 1.267/245.
  • Leave feedback if you encounter bugs, things that can be improved.

Thanks & Credits
  • rmk for his stock ROM;
  • jcase for the kernel;
  • chrisDDD for the battery icons;
  • Maxim for his wonderful AppFolders program;
  • newtoroot for his ROMs, which I pulled apart to learn how to integrate the Sense 3.0 elements;
  • Adyenalyn for his ROM, which I pulled apart to figure out how to setup the extra Quick Settings;
  • If I forgot anyone, it was unintentional, and a PM will see the situation remedied...

Hope you enjoy the ROM!
