Hey all. I wanted a new FROYO build with apps2ext without themes and all the other mess that comes with ROMS these days. So here it is. Based off the latest CyanogenMod6 build. I'm not a dev, nor do I claim to be. I just tinker and put stuff together. Infinitybiff started a great rom which was then lifted to greater heights by RK and the BiffMod Squad, and now it's my turn and I am glad to take it over and keep this Rom alive and going strong but be under no illusion that this is and always will be a TEAM effort with everyones input from coders to end users appreciated and much love should be shown to them all. It goes without saying that if your phone blows up or otherwise breaks its not my problem and I will laugh, I'm mean like that!!!

The Team That Brings You BiffMod:

THE BIFF MOD SQUAD:

Team Leader: Shadowch31 - Welcome to 'The Reign Of Terror'
Assistant Team Lead: Currently vacant
Developer: RoyalKnight6190 (Semi Retired)
Developer: Ezterry3


BiffMod now has it's own IrC channel #Biffmod Click HERE for the web client ~ All are welcome to come along and join the channel to chat about all things BiffMod. This is a very handy tool as it allows members to interact easier and also for the BiffMod Squad to be able to help users with problems faster. You will find me in there most of the time and if I'm not then you can catch me at DisruptiveMind@gmail.com

Thanks to Infinitybiff, XxKolohexX, ChromerSmith, Kingklick, Firerat, Cyanogen, HTC, Google, Dumfuq, Houka420, and of course the guy that made this all possible JesusFreke!!!! we wouldnt be where we are now if it wasnt for him.

Like I have said a lot Sharing is Caring so the Camera fix, Single Swipe of Notification and a few other minor fixes and upgrades have been done by the hard work of the CM People who work there butts off to bring us the great work they do. So to Cyanogen and his Team THANK YOU!!! Also I would like to thank Firerat to which we are borrowing heavily from his All In One Patch (1.4) to which we made the scripts from, so to you sir Thank You!!.

This should be common knowledge by now but if you want to complain about an issue make sure you have a log cat also you should be running a log cat on every first boot. If you dont have ADB set up on your computer follow this very easy guide to set it up. It truly only takes a few minutes.

PC Users - Guide ADB,FastBoot and Nandroid for Noobs

Linux Users - How to Set up Android SDK/ADB/Fastboot on Ubuntu Linux


Install Guide By Ohsaka:
No Multi-Reboot Required Anymore!

1 - (Optional,Recommended) Perform a BART backup from Recovery
2 - Power off phone
3 - Wipe system partition using one of these 4 methods:
*Volume down, home back and power for system wipe then use amon ra to wipe the rest
*fastboot erase system -w (Boot into Fastboot by holding back and power on at same time)
*adb shell mount -a; rm -rf /system/*; (ADB via recovery)
*Or using this flashable zip - Download Here Flash in Recovery reboot into recovery after flashed, Not the preferred method!!
4 - Hold Home and power on phone into Recovery mode
5 - Wipe SD Ext and repair SD Ext partition (other wipe options are redundant due to Fastboot erase)
6 - Flash the latest BiffMod ROM
6.b - ONLY if you have a 3.22.* radio install EBI1 kernel (port) file [magic32a/rogers dreams]
7 - Flash the latest BiffMod-Gapps update
8 - (Optional) Flash a BiffMod theme
9 - (Optional) Flash the ADW Launcher installer
10 - Reboot, Let screen go black before proceeding
11 - Click Menu, finish setup wizard and skip account sign in
12 - Click Menu, go to Settings, click Accounts & Sync. Sign into Google account, wait for sync to completely finish before proceeding.
13 - Click Menu, go to Settings and click cm6-BiffMod Settings
14 - Click Application Settings and check “Allow Application Moving”, dont change install location
15 - (Optional) Click Back, click Performance Settings, check Lock Home in Memory, Change VM Heap Size to 24M
15a- You can decide if you want to use Compcache or Swap (and/or JIT). We recommend Swap only and no JIT, which are the defaults now.
16 - Enjoy 2.1 and download apps and finish setting phone up your own way.

Note: You may have noticed the new option to "Enable dex2sd" under cm6-Biffmod -> Application. This will move the dalvik-cache directory to and from your sdcard. We recommend keeping it on internal memory because it will be faster. However, if you install a large number of applications then you will need to move the dalvik-cache to sdcard. After you change the setting and restart, the initial boot will take longer than normal because it has to recreate the cache directory in its new location.


More Instructions To Remove Launcher after installing AfterMarket Launcher:
Remember to have a AfterMarket Launcher installed before you attempt to do this.

In Terminal Type

su <Enter>
remove_launcher stock <Enter>
