Nice!

Any reason this wouldn't work with my Tmo MyTouch? What's the full Exchange support like? Does this feature the HTC dialer too?

(Whoa. Just figured out that swiping up in a typing area with the HTC keyboard switches to caps. Cool.)

UPDATES: this ROM is working for me on T-Mo, HTC dialer, HTC "Exchange-support" mail client, which is awesome. Full mail / contacts / calendar support, as mentioned. However, I'm unable to get the wireless to connect to my home wifi (WPA), which was working with Cyan 4.0.4 just prior to this. Also, doesn't look like it is allowing my T-Mo data plan, or something

Thoughts?

Optimize.
I might give this port a shot. However, you should try to further optimize the features. I realize that it's still in progress...but suggestions will come flying in once you build a following.

Snag some more of Cyanogen's coding/sources and you'll be golden!

CREDIT him for the work he has put in though. I mean, after all you've already incorporated some of it...so why stop there?

allla,
Once I get done w/ work, I'll post the files you need to give full language support to the rom. It'll save you from all the edit'ing. It's only a few. I'll also give you the lastest apn list that I have included in my Rogers build for the G1. It has some more that Cyanogen's rom is missing. Nice work. I'm thinking about getting a MyTouch myself. lol. Take care.

Will allow allow for full T-Mo + data support? If so, oh man... it'd be sweet

Ok, so I went ahead & zip'ed them up for you & made sure they stated HTC Magic instead of a T-Mobile G1. If you look @ the xml files, you'll understand what I meant about saving you some time editing them. You might need a wipe after re-flashing your new build. Hope that saves you some time. You'll see everything is layed out as it should be in the rom. The only other suggestion I have that might help you out is, if you're using Cyanogen's kernel & you want compcache, & all the other great stuff he adds to his kernel, you might want to add his modules directory from the same kernel build. Then edit your boot.img's init.rc accordingly. That's all completely up to you. If you extract his boot.img you'll understand what I mean. Again nice job. Take care.

Hi yipcanjo,
First thing, if you came directly over from a Cyanogen build w/ out wiping first, I'd recommend that. The build design of the HTC/Rogers builds are quite a bit different, use different versions of the apps/frameworks. Now, if you're comfortable w/ adb, you could easily push these files into allla's current build. Make sure to do an adb remount, & then push the files into place. Reboot & you should be able to be on the T-Mobile network. The apns file that comes w/ the Roger's Dream/Magic is very very minimal to say the least. lol. That's why I figured I'd throw that in as well. Hope that gets you up & going. Take care.

I see the HTC diskette is a go, but does this include the Facebook sync?

The HTC Magic/Rogers builds don't include that. That's part of the hero builds. I'm sure it'd take some work to get it working on this build. It'd be easier to just rip Rosie out a Hero build & run it like the Magic/Dream builds. I don't claim to be an expert, but that seems like the easiest thing to do. Allla, sorry I didn't mean to try to hijack your thread. Take care.
