I've been a fan of darkstone for a long time. I've moved from desire v5 onto hd2froyo v1, then to froyostone Clean and then finally to mattC Nexus1 V1.1.
Those builds that I have all tried out were great. They just worked. However. Froyostone game me screen freezes issue. And I noticed that they disappeared in nexus1 V1.1.
I am not seeing any screen freezes on this build from pongster.
I am beginning to think that the screen issues rise when you have some sort of HTC sense overlay. Because I've not noticed them on NexusOne FFR9 builds.
In terms of speed this one blows FroyoStone out of the water. It's noticeably faster. It rarely (RARELY) stutters. Scrolling is smooth. No checkerboard/whiteboard effect in web browsing. My Wifi speeds appear to be much faster for some reason.
Battery so far, I've been using it for 1 hour customizing at 50% brightness, has been great. I've drop 11% .
The theme is not so IN YOUR FACE as it's shown on the front page. That is just for advertisement. The theme is integrated deeply into this froyo build. It actually looks nice , very nice, to be honest (Compared to Shui8's build and HTCCLAY).
The only problem that i see someone having an issue with is the dpi. its set at 167 and thats very small. I mean, smalllllllll...
My eyes had to adjust to it. But it's not so bad.
For ADW, it've set it to protrait ONLY, with 5 icons horizontally, and 7 vertically. These fit perfectly! and everything looks great. I love it.
With the dock icons, I created a custom shortcut (by press and hold and empty spot on desktop), gave it a custom icon from my sd card, and then dragged that custom shortcut into the dock.
I can do this for the left and right Action buttons except for the square launcher icon. Can anyone help?
I've not been able to test call volume since its 3AM here and Everyone is alseep. Will test tomorrow and report/ Anyone in the UK mind sharing ur call quality?
Over all, this build has been great.
It's very well made and very well cooked.
I would easily give this build a 4.7/5
***BTW, APP: RootExplorer did not rescale at 180dpi using Mattc's NexusOne V1.1, But it scaled nicely on this build. Why is that? Not complaining,but I just think that it's awesome =)***
