I now downgraded my radio to 63.18.55.06IU_6.35.08.22 version, and after rebooting with GPS on, the phone will go to sleep just fine!
Defiance ROM

This ROM is a product of a few days work, and I've waited to release it until I could confirm that it was stable by using it a few days myself.



The battery life should now be great - comparable to the 1.5 ROMs.
It's based on BeHero 1.2.3 but with my own tweaks added in.

There's a full changelog in the 2nd post. I'll hopefully have a Wiki and Bug Tracking feature setup shortly.
I want this ROM to be community supported that is if you have absolutely any requests or suggestions then I would be VERY glad to hear them.

Here's a list of features you can expect:
  • MMS Working (use MMSZap)
  • No more battery drain
  • Auto A2SD
  • Working Root Permissions
  • Working Titanium backup - with sqlite support
  • Init.d folder support
  • Auto Ad-blocking in browser
  • Massive APN list
  • MultiTouch maps
  • Navigation
  • Reduced clutter
  • Default Desire wallpaper and lockscreen
Applications included in system:
  1. Titanium Backup
  2. Wireless Tether
  3. AutoKiller 1.1
  4. MMSZap
Applications included in data
  1. All HTC Widgets
  2. Astro
  3. aTrackDog
  4. Backup for Root
  5. Genie Widget (News and Weather)
  6. Facebook
Todo
- Custom bootscreen
- Remove excess bookmarks
- Confirm VPN/PPTP
- Fix for SIM contacts

DOWNLOAD
Download Now

Notes:
1 - No task killer tweak is included. I didn't like having the settings decided for me as it would sometimes kill apps I like to leave running like Talk. I have included AutoKiller 1.1 (new version of MinFreeManager) which you can configure easily and it does the same job as the Task Killer Tweak.

2 - I have tested Wireless Tether and it seems to work for me. If anyone has issues I can replace it with aNetShare

3 - The Ad-Block file may cause Dolphin Browser to give an error saying "Unable to load URL" when it blocks an ad. The default browser is pretty fast in this ROM. If the Dolphin popup becomes annoying I can tell you how to disable adblocking.

4 - I've tried to remove most of the default bookmarks, there's about 4 left. I'll try to get them all removed by the next update.

5 - There should be working VPN and PPTP but it needs testing. Any results will be appreciated.

One more Sense-enabed rom
It would be great to see clean AOSP rom based on Eris leak.

Also, torrent-based distribution would be very appreciated.

Looks good this one! Before I'm going to flash, one question: is the light sensor (auto brightness) working? This doesn't work in all other 2.1 Eris dump ROMs and makes quite a difference on the battery life, as well as usability.

Thanks for this!

Honestly, I really doubt i have the capability to do that right now, maybe once I'm more experienced with all this.
My upload speed is horrendous, I thought multi-upload would be a decent option as it mirrors the file and gives you a choice of host. It makes me over an hour to upload a ROM

Thanks, sorry but the brightness fix isn't included (as there isn't one yet). As soon as its figured out I'll add it. I tried this ROM on Thursday without the battery fix, and again since Friday with the fix and it's a LOT better!

All right, I give you the benefit of the doubt and going to flash this one I simply can't accept any ROM that cannot even last a day on one charge...
Out of curiosity, what exactly is your fix for the battery drain?
