Code Butter
<"Cross Platformed!">

Description:
Code Butter was originally an experiment with CoolRunnerII's CyanogenMod 7.2 (Android 2.3.7 Ginerbread) plus a few enhancements. I borrowed a few ideas from jerrytan93, kuskro, and ady_95 with their app choices and tweaks plus a few of mine. The ROM is now available for both NAND and EXT3. Also, thanks to the people listed below! Without their help, this ROM wouldn't be possible.

Got an idea for this ROM? Post it here! I welcome feedback and suggestions. I'll try to reply as soon as possible. If you like my work, hit that "Thanks" button down there.

Installation:
Refer to 2nd post.

Notes: (IMPORTANT!!!)
*Follow these recommendations. Some tweaks are already done for you.
*If the kernel (white diagnostic text, XPEROID logo) doesn't seem to boot into the firmware, it might be your SD card. It's a major bug that only seems to boot if the SD card has a MSDOS 512-Bit logical file system partition table. (A mouthful isn't it?) Luckily, there's a fix.
*Initial boot usually take up to 5-10 minutes. If it's more, post it here so I'll know it's a broken build. Just to make sure if it's really broken, leave it on for a few more minutes. If you sure it is, post it here so I can remove it.
*You may want to see any other stuff in the CyanogenMod for HTC Kovsky wiki.

Changelog:
Changelogs are in Google Drive. You can also view upcoming changes in new builds.

Future Plans:
Code:
*Change Default Lockscreen Style to Sliding Tab
*Possible Solution to Display Orientation Issues in framework-res.apk
*Default Settings for LauncherPro
+Add Navigation Keys
Known Issues:
Code:
*Hardware keys may or may not function after a long suspend period. A fix may have been implemented in the latest nightly but not fully tested. Feedback on it is very welcome.
*Google Play Store/Android Market will not show in the launcher until you at least connect to a WiFi network. (If Google Apps is installed)

*Any other issues already in CyanogenMod 7.2 and the kernel itself. Take a look here if you want a simple working and not-working list.
NOTE: If you found an issue and want to report, post it here or submit it to the CyanogenMod for HTC Kovsky Google Code issue tracker.

It seems very nice, I would try it, but I'm trying to update my own ROM... I will try it as soon as I release the new one.

I'm going to be honest, the first nightly isn't fully tested but I think it's stable enough. I'm not sure what to do for the next build. I need suggestions.

For anyone who tested Code Butter first, have some cake:
Code:

It's in the nightlies folder since it's not "officially" stable yet nor is it ready to be a release candidate. Probably soon.
