Update 05/04: As requested, alpha 3 is up. Though this is a port of the alpha6 gingersense from Ogo2 that brings us to 2.3.3, all the same problems from alpha 2 exist. You'll also find a lot of apps missing. Ogo2 took some of the bloatware out. Dont worry, when a final release is made I will restore all bloatware. A big thx to Ogo2 and Ohgami Ichiro for all the help thus far!

For screen shots, follow this link. It is the same rom, but for the G2.

Hello Slide Community

REMEMBER TO MAKE A BACKUP

This is an alpha version and I will do my best to reach 100% functionality. I am a noob developer, so please be patient with me as I fix the problems with this rom.

I recommend not sliding the keyboard out while on the home screen. The laucher doesnt like landscape at the moment and will mess up. A battery pull will fix it.

Noob Flashing Guide:
Place file on the root of your sd card
Go to recovery mode
Perform a nandroid backup or your current running rom (VERY highly recommended as this is alpha)
Wipe data & cache
flash (its going to hang at Coping Files... for awhile)
Reboot when done Flashing (its going to hang on the boot screen for awhile)
Enjoy!


As a sense rom, it takes up alot of the phone's internal memory. Dont worry though, there is A LOT of bloatware that can be removed and I'll do what I can to condense the rom. When I get this rom close to complete I will release a bloat-less version as well for those that dont want to bother with removing all that or are simply too inexperienced to do it.

Credit goes to (this will be updated as well):

Cyanogen and TeamDouche (rom uses bits of cm7)
alexdiaz (for linking us the leaked rom)
gnarlyc (for posting a loose guide on porting)

Surprisingly a lot works: phone, text, data, slide-out keyboard + FN/Caps buttons&lights, etc. I deodex-ed everything, zipaligned the apk files, added busybox, nano, bash, apps2sd

To fix list:
Watermark (fixed, thx ogo2 for the tips)
sd-card (fixed)
Bluetooth
WIFI
GPS
Camera/video
? key
auto-rotate (landscape will work if you slide the keyboard out)

It's not a theme it is based off the Wildfire S leaked rom. I'll load it up too just to see it.

Though the fact that the keyboard works makes me wonder if there is a Wildfire S with keyboard coming.

Or maybe the code is the same for the ChaCha.

If you can't mount the sd card then take a camera and start taking pics of it, then upload them here.

Pretty good start. The watermark is really annoying.

The Rom is exactly what you said. Though quite satisfied with CM7-RC2, it's my pleasure to flash it. Your stuff does bring hope to the device that not so popular, especially in my country.
