Introducing MROM-Vivow. Custom ROM for the HTCI2

This is my attempt to build a stable, complete, and fully functional custom ROM for the HTC Incredible 2 completely built from source code; HTCI2-MROM is built on top of Cyanogen ROM latest source code. I recompiled all components to guarantee maximum efficiency and performance. Along the way, I realized that I needed things to work different for the HTCI2, so I also made some changes. If you like my work, consider a donation to my cause.

HTCI2-MROM is entirely build from source. You will see the difference when you run it. Just to list a few features:
  • Optimum battery life, better than any other ROM I have tested
  • Quick, responsive
  • Contains all the most common HTCI2 tweaks
  • MIUI Camera for a better picture experience
  • QuickPic gallery application
  • Rotating Lights

While I tried to maintain the main core small, size is not the main focus.

Before posting negative comments about the ROM. Browse the thread and the FAQ. http://www.montuori.net/android-mrom/mrom-faq-2/

Too bad its not cm9 D:

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

I always end up going back to CM7, just can't beat the stability and smoothness of good ol' GB.

Woah! This rom is way cool! At first I wasn't too sure about the colored interface, judging from the screenshots, but in-use it actually feels somewhat nice on the eyes.

Definitely has a different feel to it compared to the default CM7, and probably one of the better modded CM7 that I have seen.

Hi all,

Thanks for downloading my ROM. If you need stability and reliability, try it, you will not be disappointed. The same ROM is already in use on the Motorola Atrix with great success...

Is there any difference between the 09/17 build and the experimental ones?

Experimental build are only as previews when introducing new functionality that needs testing before releasing builds to main stream...
