The RCMixHD v3.0 D2WE uses melethrons data2whatever script, which need one ext partition, can be ext2/3 or ext4. Recommended 1-1.5GB ext3/4
The RCMixHD v3.0 D2EXT uses ownheres data2ext v8.5 script, recommended partition layout is (works without swap and with one ext partition too): Fat + 1GB Ext4 + 0.3GB Ext4 + 0.1GB Swap (ext partitions will by formated as ext4 automaticly)
The first boot takes long time due the data2ext setup process, it stays on the first splash screen (why so serious or htc) for couple of minutes, stay calm
Nandroid backup isn't working with 2.0.0 or older Versions of Amon Ra. There is a newer Version available in this post. Clockwork does also work. Thanks melethron for that info. *New
If you are curious of what your phone is doing, if it has freezed or if it is still alive, connect your phone to usb and do adb logcat from terminal, then report what is going on...
In the begining the rom can feel laggy, it is caused by all your app beeing downloaded and synced
Overclock with SetCpu, overclock widget from market. Be cautious when overclocking, do it always with small steps!
If you have problems installing the rom, try to repartition your sd card, make a full wipe and try to install it again.
Restoring a titanium backup may cause some FC, use with caution.
More FAQ and info in 2nd post, (working in progress there, hints appreciated )
Everything should be fine!
Full wipe required due different structure of the rom.
A2SD version - Fat + Ext3/4, 0.5-1.5GB recommended.
Rotated = HD rom with rotating home as in the Z rom
DeSensenized = HD rom without rosie (the sense launcher) and all sense widgets, clean and fast as a aosp rom, but with all sense goodies left, as HTC Facebook integration, Locations, dialer, DLNA functions etc.etc.
If you like the rom, give it a star

Here will i put some instructions and FAQ it seems to be needed...
BEWARE THAT IF YOU ARE CREATING NEW PARTITIONS YOU CAN LOSE YOUR DATA ON YOUR SDCARD
MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR PICS/MUSIC/DOCUMENTS/BACKUPS (simply copy them over to your computer )...
I recommend partitioning using either Amons recovery or boot a GParted Live CD.
If you want to use Amons recovery. (If you dont have it on your phone, search a guide for how to flash it)
Turn off your phone.
Press and hold volume down button and turn on your phone holding the volume down button all the time, until you see a white screen with some info and a menu.
Scroll down and choose RECOVERY, you are scrolling with volume upp/down buttons and accepting with power button. (you maybe have to wait few seconds before be able to scroll)
Now your phone has rebooted to your recovery.
Scroll down to Partition sdcard (this time you are scrolling with D-Pad)
Choose Partition SD and confirm it, then choose those values.
Swap-size = 0MB
Ext2-size = 2048 (thats what i use, you can choose 1024 if you have small Sd-card)
rest will be FAT32 (for your storage)
Press D-Pad to confirm and wait.
You can use an Ubuntu live cd of GParted, or use it from within Ubuntu
1) Connect your phone to your computer (or use an SD Card adapter...., in this case skip to 4)
2) Pull down the notification bar and mount the phone
3) Start Gparted
4) Gparted will search available drives. (Your phone should show up as a USB drive, and will be something like /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdc1, etc..)
Warning: double-check you've not selected a hdd by mistake!
5) In the upper right corner, select the correct USB device for your phone. (i.e. check to make sure it is correct size for your SD card)
6) Right click on each partition and select 'unmount'
7) Right click on each partition and select 'delete'
If you know what you are doing, you can re-size the partitions and add a new 2nd partition formatted as ext2/3/4
8) Right click on the big gray bar (should say unallocated x.xx gb) and click 'new'
9) Enter configurations
Free Space preceding = 0
Create as = Primary
New size = [don't touch]
File system = fat32
Free Space Following = 512 (or whatever you want)
10) Click add
11) Right click on the big gray bar (should say unallocated x.xx gb) and click 'new'
12) Enter configurations
Free Space preceding = 0
Create as = Primary
New size = [don't touch]
File system = ext2/3/4 (recommend ext4)
Free Space Following = 0 (or ~32 if you want swap)
13) Click edit, then 'Apply All Operations' to write changes to disk
14) Quit GParted
15) Unmount your SD Card
16) Reboot your phone
changing the power control widget icons:
In system/cutomize/ are two files to find, widget.txt(what for widgets to show) and notification_config.txt (what functions to show)
edit them with notepad.
Power Widget for Notification Menu
Available values for widget.txt (max 6x):
Change the txt file like this: toggleWifi|toggleBluetooth|toggleGPS|toggleBrightn ess|toggleAutoRotate|toggleFlashlight
Available values for notification_config.txt:
Change the txt file like this: enablePowerControl|enableRecentApps
This is highly experimental, use at own responsibility, dont blame me for any brick.
This is how i understand it hehe, so if it is wrong, please correct me
In deodexed roms, the apk it self is like a container for the app, when it installs it runs actually from dalvik-cache, so this rom is designed to, store the apks on ext and run the dalvik from internal phone memory (data partition)
When all apks are moved to ext, the rom it self is under 130MB big, so there is no need for a bigger system partition.
So what we need to do, is repartition the internal phone memory to fit the rom better.
Originally your internal space is divided like this:
250.0 MB - system
147.6 MB - userdata
40.0 MB - cache
What we need or want for the ++ rom is (in RCMixHD case):
130.0 MB - system
302.6 MB - userdata
5.0 MB - cache
Ofcourse to flash this you have to be S-OFF, dont think the patcher works on S-ON...
Here is what you need to flash this rom:
First of all little adb and fastboot knowledge, in case anything goes wrong.
It works on my phone, so here is little info about what i have/use,
the patch is patching the recovery, it should work with Clockwork 2.x, dont know about the 3.x, but it works for sure with the one i have, Ra recovery 2.0.1 My setup:
Custom MTD sizes, 130MB system, 5MB cache, rest data, you dont need this, if you already have alpharev Bravo CM7 on your phone.
Original MTD sizes, 250MB system, 40MB cache, rest data *You will still have the patched recovery, which is not recommended to flash radios with, to flash radio, you will have to flash original recovery before.removed until proper tested :/ sorry for that...
Most applications on Android play nicely with both landscape and … more
