Thumbs up thank you.
I don't want to fill up the forums with another useless post, but I really had to give you (and all the incredible, hard-working cooks of xda-dev) major props.
I'm a chronic, compulsive ROM flasher. I've tried every ROM I could possibly find over the last four months or so.
Up until recently I had lurked the Death ROM thread, but had never flashed any of the builds until v4.1 and now flashing 4.1lite.

I have to say, as far as speed, functionality, and feel, Death is in a category of its own. I had bounced between L26, Dutty's, Hyperdragon, and ryncppr most recently, and though they have each individually made amazing contributions to ROM development, none of the ROMs run like this one.
Maybe I am having a different experience than other users and this one just happens to work incredibly on my particular device? Maybe it has do with the fact that you cook and tweak it for AT&T/TILT (I also use a Tilt)?
Whatever it is, it will take one hell of a rom to pry me away from Death.
When I pull myself out of debt, I'll donate some dough your way. If you're ever in the Los Angeles area, I'll buy you a drink (or 5). If you ever want/need sound design for anything (custom sounds[beeps, blips, rings, w/e] for ROMs, sites, software; films, post-production work), need recording, mixing, mastering work, whatever--just send me a PM.

You have ended my compulsive flashing in search of a ROM I can feel content with. My life has returned (though I compulsively check for updates still). I really liked V4, but as far as applications, I mainly text/email compulsively, Opera, and Calendar. Calendar is vital to keeping my life together and ThumbCal was not cutting it. 4.1 solved my problems.

Thanks to all the cooks again. Please don't flame me for the ass-kissing. I wouldn't have if I didn't feel it was necessary.
And since I'm here I might as well ask--

Do you know how I can make Calendar recognize a phone number typed in the location field so I can click them to dial? I can do a "tel:###.###.####" in the Notes section, but the Location field would be so much more convenient (my blackjack did it).

Also, any ideas as to how to make wifi more reliable? I think it's my crappy router, but sometimes it just can't authenticate or loses connection a lot.

Is there any way to cook IMAP-IDLE functionality into the standard email program on WM6.1 without using the (unreliable) software solutions that are out there right now?

Camera problem.. (?)
Just flashed and am getting an error when I start the camera app... "The file 'camera' cannot be opened..." Haven't tried to troubleshoot yet but nothing obvious. I used the last version with this radio no problem, and all the right camera files appear to be there but it's not working. A little late at night to be trying to solve so I'll look at it tomorrow but could be an issue.

Hi Shogun! Your roms are fantastic! BUT...! it's customized for US so much that it's problematic to use it in europe. Any plans for an EuroVDeath?

Very nice, flashing now. Have flashed each version so far, very impressed with V4.


Keep it up!

Have you tried to install a camera CAB? This should probably fix it until it's fixed.

I've been very happy with the Death v4.1 ROM. However I had to hit the power button twice from time to time to get it out of his sleep. Been using the HyperDragon ROM after this. But I will try this lite version as well, probably sooner than I might think.

Keep up the great work!

I've been wondering also if their are any changes to the ROM except the ammount of apps that have been removed?
