This is a Hybrid AOSP-Like Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM. Completely rebuilt from source based on combination of AOSP source code from Google and CM7 source code from CyanogenMod.
(Notice: From version 1.2.7 and beyond, all CyanogenMod's Apache 2.0 Licenses will be displayed under Settings->About Phone->Legal Information->CyanogenMod Licenses to comply with their Apache License 2.0)

There are a few reasons I created this build:

1. I want to see if I can build a ROM project from source
2. An alternative ROM that's a little different from CM7.

Updates for this ROM will NOT be very FAST or FREQUENT due to my LACK OF TIME!

(I WON'T BE taking FEATURE REQUESTS and such, most can be added by yourself from various mods found on XDA)

So what is in this version right now...

1. Completely build from source based on Gingerbread 2.3.5 and CM 7.x.x
2. No Google Apps included at all... You need to use the GAPPS zip file from CM7
3. Rooted (of course )
4. Deodexed all /system/apps and framework files
5. Dalvik memory boosted from default 24MB to 32MB

I want to [Thank] the following:

Cyanogen for inspiring me to build a project such as this from scratch...
Aremcee for his amazing hacking skillz and support for LG 2x phones...
Zinx Verituse for his amazing hacking skillz and support for Glacier...
Rest of CyanogenMod Team without them, none of this would be possible...
CodeAuroraForum aka CAF for their Android Enablement patches...
T-Mobile for creating a theme engine for easy update of themes...
XDA Community for the support and the community spirit...

[ News Bulletin ]:

P999 Hybrid Nexus AOSP ROM version 1.3.1 out. Introducing SpartPartsToo

Send a note to XDA to reinstate my Recognized Developer status

[ Bugs/Incompatibilities ]:

1. Bluetooth AD2P not working (this is NOT because we don't have A2DP in the framework, it is there, but we don't have nVidia/LG HAL to work with Gingerbread, need nVidia/LG HAL updates).
Probably Tons... Can't really test them all myself...


[ What Major components are there in AOSP? ]

Bionic - core kernel / low level hardware interaction portion. CM7 team patched this portion using code from CodeAuroraForum (AKA CAF) to work with our current HW and kernel, so there's nothing to rollback to. There's only bug fixes and driver updates to do for this portion. When real Gingerbread Kernel for our phone is available, this part will be updated heavily...

Dalvik - Google's Java Virtual Machine. CM7 team added support for ARM v6 to this from CAF patches. Our phone is already supported by the default Dalvik, so this is identical to AOSP.

External - This is a collection of helper utilities and libraries needed by Android (like graphic libraries, open vpn etc). Again CM7 team hacked this to work with our hardware with patches from CAF, so again, nothing to rollback to. Only bug fixes and updates.

Hardware - Additional User Space Hardware drivers not covered by kernel such as GPS, Radio Interface, Video, etc... Again, CM7 team added support for our phone with patches from CAF, so nothing to rollback too. Only bug fixes and updates. When real GB kernel is available for our phone, this part will be updated accordingly.

Libcore - Core libraries such as SQL-Lite3, Dalvik and other essential libraries. This is already 100% AOSP.

System - System Services like Wireless AP, Volume Daemon, Logcat, ADB, Fastboot etc... Again, CM7 made it work with our phone with patches from CAF, so nothing to rollback to. Only updates and bug fixes.

Packages - Built-in Apps. This where quite a bit of CM7 customization took place. I have already ROLLED BACK this entire folder to 100% AOSP.

Lastly, the hardest part

Framework - This folder also contained heavy CM7 customization. This portion is NOT easy to ROLL BACK. The framework is HIGHLY INTEGRATED, if NOT CAREFUL, 1 mistake can bootloop the whole system (I have experienced a few already). I have ROLLED BACK quite a bit of code back to AOSP, ie CM7 tablet tweaks, System UI, Lock Screen etc (highlighted in Magenta in my version history).

So as you can see from above, CM7 is NOT TOO FAR from AOSP. All I am doing is making it more AOSP Sometimes it pains me to remove nice features added by CM7 to make AOSP more useful...


Make it more stable and even speedier!

Downloading R2

The title still says R1 btw.

Will test this first. The leaked official GB keeps rebooting but other roms I had no problem with. So I'm looking for a good "stable" GB release. ASOP or CM7, as long as it works.
