The Beta Testers





Format your sdcard with the following specs.

linux-swap - At least 96mb

How to setup sdcards

How To Partition SD Card With Ubuntu
From the recovery mod
Manual partition of sdcard w/parted,goto ext3/4 from adb. no liveCD req'd


Then use the following command or your own.

Run the following command in the adb shell

# Backup your apps using the following commands.

mkdir /sdcard/backup
mkdir /sdcard/backup/app
mkdir /sdcard/backup/app-private

cp -R /system/sd/app/*.* /sdcard/backup/app
cp -R /system/sd/app-private/*.* /sdcard/backup/app-private

# Remove app_s files from system before starting the flashing process.

rm -r /system/sd/app_s/*.*
reboot recovery

Then a WIPE is required...!

These steps need to be performed before flashing this rom.

My otpi will do the same one you've already flashed this rom.


This rom is for "HTC Magic/MyTouch 3G/32B devices only.

Please make sure to make a nandroid backup before flashing this rom.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead sdcards, and etc.

Please do some research before trying to flash this rom.


Added: Bluetooth fix
Moved to app: BizCardReader
Moved to app: HTC_IME
Moved to app: Maps
Moved to app: Quickoffice 1.0.1
Moved to app: teeter


Default with Linux Swap set at 60 swappiness

If for some reason it does not set swappiness to 60, then please use swapper to adjust as needed.


Create a folder called backup on your sdcard before flashing this rom.

Then another folder called app within the backup folder.

Copy your currenlty used apps into the app folder.

Once your done flashing this rom, connect your device and within adb shell, type otpr.

This will copy all files within your sdcard/backup/app onto /system/sd/app


The following tools will be added to this rom, simply connect your system via adb shell and type names below.


This simple add-on script will backup your app to sdcard/backup/app, then remove all existing files from app_s and app.

Once completed it will reboot your device into recovery mode so that you can flash another rom.


This simple add-on script will simply mount your sd card with read + write options.


This simple add-on script will restore your save files from sd/backup/app to your /system/sd/app folder.

================================================== =====================

Still working on fixing the following:

1. FC when searching contacts
2. Full Bluetooth support


Version 1.5

OTPA.v.1.5.5 - Updates

This update will fix the miss call issues when present.
It also includes Java and a few addional apps.
It also fixes the sound issue.
There are two versions one with A2sd as with the current rom and one without A2sd.

Do not perform a wipe when using Updates.

If the swappiness drops from 60 to 10 after a reboot, please download swapper and adjust as needed. I will include swapper in the next update.


OTPA.v.2.0 - Sense UI 4 Magic


Bluetooth muisc still works
More Stable
Black Dialer -> Thanks to twisted for his help
Transparent Lockscreen -> Got bored waiting for a new
Replaced kernel with drizzy's -> with some minor edits to the boot.img by me
Removed all warez
Hard coded swappiness to 60 -> Yes, it will stay at 60 after reboots. Do no use swapper on this version...!
Set cpu to 38400 instead of max to help reduce battery drain.
And other things I forgot about.

Wifi Fix - OTPA.v.2.0 - Magic Users Only and Not MyTouch

Do not perform a wipe when using Updates.


Version 3.0

New Rosie look
Black out theme
Back with old screen lock since people did not like the clear
Update apks and framework

Two different versions

One with BT Music (Music streaming only not full BT)
One without BT Music (Much smoother since it has the newer core, people search
and etc

All roms moved to 4shared folder.


App Pack v.1.1

Roms Folder - 4shared

Thumbs up Suggestions.
If I may:

- Add Plurk, including the widget.
- Render the notification tray transparent.
- Implement EXT4 support.
- Be sure that the Compcache modules are correct.
- Linux-swap supported AND/OR back_swap supported.
- Add Stocks, including the widget. (It's not that much of a resource hog.)
- Add Spare Parts.
- Keep all standard wallpapers to avoid gallery selection force closes.
- Keep all media to avoid "Ringdroid" or "Rings Extended" force closes.
- Keep the standard lock screen w/ throttle bar. (It's gorgeous.)
- Be sure that the latest kernel is the BFS-222 kernel. (Cyanogen's latest is.)
- (Opt.) Twisted's "black dialer."
- (Opt.) 2.73 based-build number. (Modaco's latest WWE dump.)

If you can make that happen before your release...or keeps your initial release HELD OFF...that's fine, trust me ---> it'll be worth it!

The community would be going nuts if you can make some of that happen!

Seriously, if you make at least half of that happen, I'll flash this ROM to both of my devices, and promote the hell outta' this.

EDIT: The reason for the Modaco dump suggestion is because he has the only build that DOES NOT force close while using the People Search function in the contacts. That's a big deal. IMO.

Thank you for the response,

Please remember that this is a full version so it might run a bit slower.

I'm running a strip down version of this rom and its working great so far.

That's strange, I've test it before uploading, the file must have gotten corrupted or something.

I'm going to download it and try again.
