Fatal1ty2787>>>Hi guys,
this is a fully working Hero rom for vodafone's Magic (I think that someone has posted a version for the HTC branded).
The porting has been made by me, with a cooperation of nk02...

Here is a trick for those who want performance, and want to come back to other rom, before doing this just try this:

settings-->applications-->manage-->touchflo-->clear defaults
than the first time you press home it ask you wich home you want to chose, check use always this option, and press Home (not touchflow), and there you have, a speedy rom with the good things of Sense (except for the widgets, but you won't get them in other roms anyway )


Version 1.3


http://tinyurl.com/Dream-Hero-Full-v1-3-zip

ChangeLog:


-AudioPara4.csv from rogers rom
-Voice Dialer included
-Deleted Htc sync tool
-Deleted HTC footprints app/widget
-Deleted teeter (HTC game)
-Used jerpelea Rosie.apk (thanks for it, it's smaller, and let you save more than 3MB)
-New version of swap application, now it let you set the swappiness,it's the 3rd parameter in swapinfo.txt ( by default it's setted to 20), first time it ask root permission tap always allow, if it says that the application it's not responding just hit wait, and everything will go ok!
I found this rom much more usable with touchFlow
(the best configuration on swap that I found is: 32MB, and 10 of swappiness, try it editing the /sdcard/swapinfo.txt



Patch for swap:
(in the rom you'll find the lastest version, this one is the first version)

http://tinyurl.com/SwapFixHeroRom

Here is an automatic apps that do the work for you,
it set up a new swap file with standard dimension of 65MB in /sdcard/swapfile.swp,
and for those who wants to personalize it,
just change the file /sdcard/swapinfo.txt
is obvious but I clear that too: first line path, second line dimension

Don't need to do anything to make it work just install it, and reboot the phone, it'll do the work for you!

thanks to Andrea from androidiani.com

I'm going to make a complete rom tomorrow I think

I want to remember everyone that swapping on an sdcard can reduce its lifetime, so do it at your own risk



UPDATE TO VERSION 1.2 - Fatal1y2787

http://tinyurl.com/fatal1tyHeroDream

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=6EFBQRGI

This one is even faster plus changes:

ChangeLog:
-mp3 problem fixed
-set speed at 528 MHz ( no more Overclock widget/setCpu needed)
-Audio at normal level
-busybox fully working (solving swapper issue)

Version 1.1 changes:

ChangeLog:
Root "should" be fixed
not well fixed(Audio fixed (it was loud))
Clock fixed (thanks for the advice to Crios)
Music Player Fixed
KeyMap fixed


Rename it in update.zip
copy to sd
reboot (pressing home+power)
wipe
apply update
