Default [ROM] VaelPak 2.3 [10/29/10] - NonSense - [HTC B149#11][FPSU] - 3.30.651.2 OTA

I created this ROM because there are none available that have everything I want. It has treated me well so far and seems to have some features that others have asked for so I am sharing it with anyone who might want it. To the best of my knowledge, it is the most senseless ROM there is currently available without going to AOSP, and offers a unique mixture of Sense and AOSP.

Based on 3.29.651.5 OTA with 3.30.651.2 slipstreamed in
Packaged with OTA HTC Build 149#10 kernel

Post Coming Features / FAQ / Known Issues / Changelog

Line-up for future releases
  • AOSP graphics (Notification icons, etc)
  • Add AOSP keyboard
  • Your request or idea here

FAQ

MMS is not working
  • Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Dialer > Clear Cache. Reboot.
  • --If that doesn't work, reflash your rom again, and this time, do not restore SMS/MMS/APN Dialer storage data

What's the difference between BFS & CFS kernels? *Pretty technical..
What's this BFS thing all about? *Less technical

What kernels is VaelPak confirmed to work with?
  • 2.6.32.15-g3a8614e htc-kernel@and18-2 #7
  • KiNgxKernel CFS
  • KiNgxKernel BFS
  • Netarchy Toastmod 4.0.2 Damage Control
  • Netarchy 4.1.8-cfs edition - Damage Control

How do I install the HTC Browser
  • Astro will not work, using EStrongs or Root Explorer, install vaelkpak-extras/replaced/Browser.apk
  • Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Internet > Clear Data
  • To get the included one back if you want afterwards, uninstall Internet
  • This process may be needed for installing anything from the Replaced folder

Market crashes, hangs, is very slow, or other odd issues with it
  • Download this
  • Open Settings > Applications > Manage Apps > ALL > Market
  • Clear Market Data/Cache
  • Reboot to recovery, Wipe Cache & Dalvik Cache, Flash the zip
Apps fail to gain root privileges
  • adb remount && adb shell chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
  • May need to reboot after issuing that command

Version Specific FAQ
2.2
  • Titanium Backup drops to boot animation when restoring - See the huge note above the download link

2.0
  • Wireless Tether is missing. Get it here (Does not seem to be a problem in the BFS version)
  • If HtcSetupWizard repeatedly FC's on first boot, reboot and it should fix itself.

1.4
  • Google Search update won't install from market

1.3a and lower
v1.3
  • Google broke it! The GAPPS updates I applied have broken network based geolocation. I am working on rolling back all of the updates except for GMail. Hope to have a flash update but can't promise, if you install 1.3, you may have to re-flash once I work this out. If it's not one thing it's another!
  • Non Gmail email accounts must be added after the Setup Wizard runs from within the Email app because HTC email is not installed.

v1.2
  • Error when updating Visual Voicemail - Download and install this re-signed version
  • Maps missing / Unable to update - see this post for a fix
  • Unable to update any pre-installed apps - Uninstall it and reinstall from the market - will be fixed in next build
  • Maps is not showing up, unable to install via Market
  • FC in most options under Settings > Personalize (This menu uses HTC apps)
  • FC when selecting Company Directory from online directories tab of HTC Contacts (Only if using AOSP email)

v1.1
  • Sync icon gets stuck if Facebook account is added *Found fix for next build - To work around, install friendstream from /vaelpak-extras/stockapks*
  • FC in Calendar when selecting Menu > More > Calendars *Found fix for next build - Thanks Skitzi!*
  • FC in most options under Settings > Personalize (This menu uses HTC apps)
  • FC when selecting Company Directory from online directories tab of HTC Contacts (Only if using AOSP email)

Thanks, I'll try this out tomorrow. With so many roms coming out in the past day or two, this is the only one that has caught my interest.

Make sure you fill in your Google account information when it runs through the setup wizard on FIRST boot. If you don't do that, and put it in later, the sync notification seems to do this. I've run into it on many roms.
