A fix for the phone not sleeping with GPS on has been found by dolby71, thanks!
Looks like I figured out the Battery draining problem. We now know that having the GPS on while rebooting makes it work, but is keeping the phone from idling, meaning the awake time is the same as uptime. Now, if we turn GPS off while rebooting, the wake time is smaller than the uptime, but you can't get GPS signal. 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!
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
- Reduced clutter
- Default Desire wallpaper and lockscreen
- Titanium Backup
- Wireless Tether
- AutoKiller 1.1
- All HTC Widgets
- Backup for Root
- Genie Widget (News and Weather)
- Custom bootscreen
- Remove excess bookmarks
- Confirm VPN/PPTP
- Fix for SIM contacts
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.
