I've been playing awhile with hrkfdn great ported Oxygen ROM.
It's already light and fast! All hail goes to original dev and all those big guys!
So I made a few alterations -mods, if you prefer. In fact, I pushed this ROM even further, I just got to know how light and how fast a ROM can be, while still wanted it to be good looking. Remove some, added some, playing with various tweaks here and there -can't really recall everything.
Tried hard not to reach 60 MB, it's fun for me to know that I'm using a very light ROM. So here it is, a 58 Mb ROM for our DHD, that's way way smaller than the usual Sense ROMs and still half of CM and MIUI ROMs. There's plenty of room for our OWN creativity
Who would want a ROM such as this? Those who are taking a break from all the complexity of Sense, those who prefer clean & pure android experience, those who seek a fast and solid yet uncluttered base for hard-core gaming, and above all: those who dare to begin a personal endeavor into the endless sea of the Droid Unknown.
-This ROM is based on the earlier version of hrkfdn's ported Oxygen. If you prefer to taste the originals, do visit the original thread.
-The FM Radio is not functional on Oxygen builds. However, I've been using this ROM for everyday use, and no biggies that prevent me from using my DHD the way it should be used, but let me know if there's something that really wrong, I might know the way around.
-I'm no dev and this is not really a 'new' ROM, but I do love to share.. If this ROM pleases you, don't forget there are buttons in this page to express it I have not stop from modding this ROM, still curious if I can make it below 50 Mb so most probable there will (still) be future releases.. will be updating.
UPDATE 22 Sept 2012
Although the latest build is still here to download, and (evidently) still needed by some, and yes, this ROM is still among the LIGHTEST, FASTEST DHD ROM ever existed, I'm sorry to say that this project is now in full stop.
I have been off the droid field for months due to a new 'life' that prevents me from a stable internet connection
I have no DHD now, but I will still stop by once in a while, so if there are questions, feel free to still post here, ar PM me, if i have the answer I surely will reply.
Thank You all!
