This ROM is completely 1.6 stock (framework, apps, etc) with the exception of the following enhancements:

1. Compcache enabled by default (no backing swap, just straight compcache)
2. Memory hack which gives you 107.5 megs of linux system memory
3. ROM works with both mt3g (32b) and g1 (dream).
4. Root enabled
5. Market should be fully working
6. Busybox
7. Loccy's enhanced Browser v1.5 with MT
8. Netfilter and iptables modules added to the kernel. Wifi tethering works with both "aNetShare" and "android-wifi-tether" apps.
9. Launcher with 5 screens
10. Apps2SD for G1/Dream users ext2/ext3 fs only [may need to format /system/sd (/dev/block/mmcblk0p2) partition if getting black screen]
11. Work Email App (Exchange Support)
12. All built-in apps optimized with zipalign and optipng
13. Wired usb tethering support. Download this app to enable http://code.google.com/p/android-wired-tether/
14. Deadline IO Scheduler

Caveats:

* Because of the RAM Hack, 3d games will run slow!
* Does not support ext4 partition

* Kernel
- Switch to deadline IO scheduler: less CPU usage, better multi-tasking, helps with minimizing slowdowns over time. [thanks wes garner]

* Compcache
- Revert set physical and logical block to PAGE_SIZE patch: Was causing random reboots

* Framework

- net: Avoid sleep-inside-spinlock in PPPoLAC and PPPoPNS.

* Compcache Fixes
- sync and then reset init flag

* Android 2.1 Google News and Weather Widget

CRC32: 14BDC826

* Updated to the latest compcache for more stability
- Fix race between reset_device and ramzswap_make_request
- set RZS_ZERO flag within rzs mutex
- Set physical and logical block to PAGE_SIZE
- Swap free notify ported from compcache v0.6

* Libc, libcutil, libpixelflinger libraries from cyanogen ROM for more speed
* Include Google Maps 3.3.1
* Framework is the same so themes from v1.13 will work

v1.13 http://a5-studios.com/dwang/dwang-v1.13.zip

* Fixes for various memory leaks in android framework

* Updated to latest compcache module
* Fixed caller id issue
* Default keyboard vibrate now works


v1.9 http://drop.io/hkelqgt#

* Revert back to 2.6.29 donut kernel to fix camera and camcorder problems
* Add back swap_free_notify to compcache to hopefully fix slowdown issues


v1.8 http://drop.io/kigy6ej#

* Upgrade 2.6.29 kernel to latest version from git repository
* Add back swap_free_notify to compcache to hopefully fix slowdown issues


v1.7 http://drop.io/9jw6wel

* Fix voice search crash


v1.6 http://drop.io/p1knm9f

* Fix a2sd issues for real this time.
* Push VoiceSearch.apk to /system/app to fix voice search problems.

v1.5 http://drop.io/hfrm7de

* Fastest version yet!
* Initial boot may take a while, be patient. If having trouble with apps, may need to wipe

* Revert kernel to v1.3. Seems to be faster.
* Optimized all built-in apps with zipalign and optipng
* Fix a2sd issues, hopefully!
* Add busybox symlinks
* Add userinit.sh support. Userinit.sh file should reside in /sdcard since I"m not assuming 2nd partition exists. Compcache won't be disabled
* Add IM app
* Removed ota update files.


v1.4 http://drop.io/cyhgit3#

* Update build.prop files to stop ota update. Still may need to download the update to completely stop it.

* Apps2SD Support for G1/Dream users. Magic users still the same, no a2sd. [may need to format /system/sd (/dev/block/mmcblk0p2) partition if getting black screen]
* Fix G1/Dream Bluetooth issues.


v1.1 http://drop.io/6h4zu9q#

* Can now be flashed using recovery image. No need for fastboot.
* 5 screen launcher.
* Compcache without swap_free_notify. Its faster.
* Iptables binary so android-wifi-tether app now works.
* Set max_cpu speed to 528mhz.


v1.0 http://drop.io/4gtaatn7873#

* Initial release (fastboot only)



If I get a C&D letter, I'm taking it down right away, so download it quickly. :)

Enjoy, I learned a lot during the process of making this ROM.

1. Compcache enabled by default (no backing swap, just straight compcache)
2. Memory hack which gives you 107.5 megs of linux system memory

7. Loccy's enhanced Browser v1.4.3 (no MT, don't really need it with Loccy's browser}
8. Netfilter and iptables modules added to the kernel. Wifi tethering works with both "aNetShare" and "android-wifi-tether" apps.
9. Launcher with 5 screens

This ROM was developed specifically for the mt3g, but it does work on the dream (cc and memhack both work). However, there are some issues on the g1:

1. No a2sd. I don't need it on the mt3g so I haven't spent the time to add it. I may or may not add a2sd to this ROM, depends on my free time. If anybody wants to take up that work, feel free.

2. BT does not work on the g1. Not sure why. Could be a missing file. If somebody could clue me in, I will fix it in the next release. This is only on g1, BT works perfect on the mt3g.


v1.0

* Initial release (fastboot only)

http://drop.io/4gtaatn7873#

v1.1

* Can now be flashed using recovery image. No need for fastboot.
* 5 screen launcher.
* Compcache without swap_free_notify. Its faster.
* Iptables binary so android-wifi-tether app now works.
* Set max_cpu speed to 528mhz.

No screenshots. It looks just like stock. All changes are under the hood.

Show me a rom that has the features of mine. I created this rom because none of the Existing roms fit my needs.

If you don't like it stay out of the thread.

Thanks Dwang, the 5-column launcher, BetterBrowser, and root access are just enough upgrade. The Official 1.6 also has known radio (Wi-Fi and BT) issues. This does not, however. +1
