So, after hovering over CM nightlies for as long as I can remember, I guess, I've reached a point where I want things to just work. And DFP-231, for the first time pleasantly surprised me! So, sticking as close to stock as possible while having all the goodies, here - PVL-StockPlus.

Download Links:

Version 2: PVL-StockPlus-v2.zip [194 MB]
Version 1: PVL-StockPlus-v1.zip [191 MB]

Note: If you're installing it on a Defy (not Defy+), you need to only restore "system" using "Advanced Restore", and flash 4.5.3-109-DHT Kernel from here - http://ge.tt/969Z8xC/v/3.

Updates:

Note: All the updates below are already integrated into Version 2. You don't have to download any of these below.

ResponsivenessUpdate.zip [156Kb] (Will work on any ROM with init.d support - Tweaks to ramscript)
MP4VideoUpdate.zip [158Kb] - VGA+ resolution videos including 720p now use MP4 containers. (Info: 720p uses generic MPEG4 Part-2 encoding while others use H264 (Part-10 AVC) as frame-rate with 720p using H264 is too low, although it provides better quality. Edit /system/build.prop if you wish to change that.)

How to Install:

1. Root your Phone and Install Bootmenu (SndInitDefy_2.0.apk)
2. Extract the downloaded file to the SD card at: /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup
3. Copy all the update zip files, if any, anywhere into your SD card.
4. Reboot
5. Boot into 2nd-init (Volume-Down on Blue LED)
6. Go to "Recovery" -> "Custom Recovery" -> "Backup and Restore" -> "Restore" -> "PVL-StockPlus-v1"
7. To install the updates, if any, choose "Install from zip from sdcard" -> Select all the update zips one by one and install.
8. Wipe data (Optional but recommended) and cache (Strictly required).
9. Reboot

If you're on a Green Lens Defy, you should probably wait for walter79's MSGinger. While I intend to focus only on the Defy Plus and Red Lens Defy, walter's ROMs provide a wide range of compatibility.

Change Log:

Version 2 - 18th April 2012:

Fix: zipalign executable missing.
Fix: Panorama mode build.prop typo (Thanks to walter79)
Number of Multi-touch points can be edited in /system/build.prop
Button backlight can now be edited in /system/build.prop
Added Deep Sleep support. (Extends your battery life significantly)
Volume Buttons Wake Support.
Dalvik Tweaks.
Fully De-Odexed.
Added Google Play Music.
Integrated all of v1's updates.
More build.prop tweaks.

For those who share my taste and prefer simplicity, enjoy. Others, no one's stoping you either.

You may have to find the patch for battery first which works with DFP-231. Other than that, I don't think there should be any problem.

I only have a Defy Plus. So, can't test it.

Full nandroid including boot, devtree uploaded.

Just flash system using advanced restore if you already are on the same sbf, or want to use a different kernel
