Default [ROM][GB] Hybrid (Stock/CM7), Multilingual, Deblur

This is Electrify rom, completely deblured, except phone and hdmi features, with added cm7 and other apps and features,
to minimize phone and hdmi issues and maximise usability of the hardware, using lightweight software,
without needs to sync anything, like Blur. Google sync is enough and there are plenty of apps in Google play.
And that all in many languages, which are included in AOSP, but someone took them out.

But still, it's not perfect and never will be.

Made on my own unlocked GSM Photon, but works well on CDMA (Sprint) and Electrify (US Cellular) too.

Locked version also available. But still no 4g!

I am not responsible for any software or hardware damage or not working emergency calling. You don't have to use this.

If I am posting something I should not, tell me and I will delete it. I am just sharing this, because itīs good for me and could be good for someone else.

If anything does not work right after installation, do one more restart please.


Features:
- based on Electrify 2.3.5_USC_19 firmware
- 1.0 GHz stock 2.3.5_254_13 kernel
- fully deblured (no support for anything using blur account and no social apps or widgets or features)
- modified UI in many places (framework, statusbar, notification, settings and many remaining apps)
- framework and most of apps translated to various languages (used translation from CM7) ...
... Russian is fully translated, Arabic support (not perfect)
- updated zone info and ICU (8/12)
- CM7 apps - SMS and MMS, Email, Calendar, Voice Dialing, Torch, File Manager, Sound Recorder, Keyboard, Screenshot
- Nemus Launcher (Nenustech), Gallery ICS (Moblynx), Play Music (Google) ...
... FMRadio (Moto Froyo Defy but modified), My Phone Number (Lytsig), Resolution Changer (djeman) apps added
- stock camera connected with Gallery ICS with 1080p video recording
- 1% battery steps in statusbar, battery usage - everywhere
- advanced Global Actions Menu - reboot, recovery, screen capture
- CM notification toggles (10), with long click handling
- HDMI mirroring with Resolution Changer and Webtop, both working without docks
- automatic brightness levels modified, activated automatic backlight decreasing
- CM download management without restrictions in downloading
- unlocked APNs (you can edit them) accessible also for CDMA (Accounts & Battery & Data)
- some little theming, including notification led
- Moto data counter accessible (Accounts & Battery & Data) and fixed
- lowered battery low notifications - 10% first, 2% second
- volume wakeup, SD card switch, OC kernel and others - available as addons (flashable zips)
- bootsound

Do not forget to calibrate the battery - it means - install, boot, (maybe reboot), charge 100%, wipe battery stats and /data/battd folder, discharge to 0% without any reboot (but you can use it ofcourse), plug your charger while holding power button to bypass charge only mode, do not unplug your charger or do not reboot, until it is 100% and use it anyhow you like...
Then you can complain about battery. It means, not sooner than 2 days after installation. :P
This calibration is not needed because of battery (it is lithium battery), but because of not very good Moto power statistics management. Battery can be charged anytime you like, but the phone can show only estimated battery values, based on charging and discharging.
You can use this Battery Fix app for wiping.


Sorry for my English.

ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP FIRST.

YOU CAN USE ANY RECOVERY YOU LIKE.

So can sprint photon users use this. Would we have to flash anything to get sms/mms working? Just want to make sure since I'm on sprint I don't brick the device by flashing ussc rom.

I think, there will be no problem with sprint, except maybe mms, you will need to use go sms, but I changed apns, so I don't know.

I am uploading with updated zone info and icu, so it could help with Arabic, if it works well on cm7.
