SIGNED VERSION NOW LIVE!!!!
THIS IS A CUPCAKE HERO ROM. AT PRESENT 1.9.1 IS STILL THE LATEST VERSION OF MGHTYMAX. IN MY OPINION, STILL THE FASTEST, MOST STABLE HERO ROM ON THE PLANET.
I may be developing a "Legacy Edition" of MghtyMax, considering we are reaching the end of the road for the G1. It would essentially be 1.9.1 with minor tweeks, some graphical improvements, and some special goodies to celebrate life of a great phone. Kind of in the "feeling out interest" phase right now, so if this is something you would like to see, please respond. I'd also like to talk to some folks who are good with custom desktop wallpapers. Please contact me on Twitter if interested in working on this project.
1.9.1 - Added Flash support
1.9 Altered user.conf. Turned off Compache and went to straight linux-swap. Swappiness set at 60. This may be the FASTEST HERO ROM EVER.
Recommended linux-swap partition sizes:
G1: 128 MB Linux Swap
MT3G: 96 MB Linux Swap* (Not tested. If running laggy after rom settles try 128MB as well)
If you get the blurries on MT3G, use the blurries fix:
After the system settles, and everything is running nice and smoothly, shut down, reboot into recovery and flash this as a ROM. Don't wipe, don't remove partitions. Just flash the zip. Reboot, and no more blurries!
*This IS Maxisma 1.8 with the following changes:
Brought back PEEP due to popular demand (as is in Maxisma's roms)
Include Backup for Root & Missed Calls apps, and a few added sounds.
Modded build.prop to allow use of T-Mo apps (My Account, My Faves)
Removed HeroLED. All LED's will work natively on MT3G, and on G1 all will work except *missed call notifications. Thanks to Maxisma's build.prop
*Included Anon's Missed Call. Allows for custom LED color and frequency for incoming/missed call notification, and missed call notification sounds. This app will be in your app draw, and it must be run and set up for missed call notification LEDs to work. MT3G users do not need to use this app.
Included Blackgin's "Backup for Root Users" (This version works with HERO rom's)
Added lots of sound files for Ringtones, Notifications, and Alarm.
This version has an edited build.prop so that the phone's model number displays as T-Mobile G1 for apps like T-Mobile's "My Account" Although this has not been tested on MT3G it should not cause any issues. Please report if there are and I will release a MT3G version of this rom.
Replaced boot sound and image files.
Removed HTC PEEP. (was causing problems for me, lots of FC)
Thanks go out to Maxisma of course for compiling the rom that I basically just tweeked a bit, and for allowing me to share it with all of you. Anon for his Missed Call app, Blackgin for "Backup for Root Users", HTCPedia and Rapidshare for hosting, everyone at XDA and the T-Mobile forums, JackCrackerMan for pointing me to the blurry fix, and of course all of you, the Android community at large.
***BEFORE INSTALLING PLEASE***
***THESE INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER OR MGHTYMAX WILL NOT WORK!!!***
-If using "Backup for Root" uninstall any heroled app you may be currently running before backing up.
-Before flashing this rom, WIPE PHONE/FACTORY DATA RESET, WIPE/REPARTITION EXT AND LINUX-SWAP in parted.(I recommend ext4 for best performance, 128MB Linux Swap for G1, 96 MB Linux Swap for MT3G)
-After repartition and upgrade of ext partition, exit parted and PULL BATTERY. Make sure device is not charging or hooked up to USB and put battery back in and boot to recovery.
-WIPE/FDR Phone AGAIN FOR SAFETY. Too many people having issues with remnants of old roms interfering with new ones. PLEASE follow this procedure exactly.
- Flash Rom.
-When the new rom boots and you get to the homescreen, allow some time for the apps2sd to catch up.
- IMPORTANT!!! Run Market. Accept the ToS. Exit Market.
- Run "Backup for root users" (also in app tray) if you ran it prior to flashing this rom, and restore your files.
- Wait. Wait. Wait. Sit and watch the apps pop up in the tray. Wait some more. Look, they're dancing! They keep moving! Wait. Wait. Wait. Grass growing? Wait. Wait Wait. Wait some more and when they finally stop moving around for good, close the app tray and reopen it. If it scrolls like butter, it's done. If it's laggy, wait, wait, wait. DO NOT RUN **ANYTHING** During this process!!! You may get FC's, load screens, and just may end up doing a wipe and reflash. Give it time. It will take a while, but you'll be glad when it's done.
- Run "Missed Calls" app in the app tray and set up your led notifications for missed/incoming calls.
*As with any rom, you flash this at your own risk, neither I, Maxisma, these forums, your wireless carrier, or any being, living or dead in the known universe (except for you) will be held responsible should your damage or destroy your device in an attempt to flash/use this rom in any way.

"Just when I thought I was out... THEY PULL ME BACK IN!!!"
I just couldn't let 1.8 be it, with the problems I was seeing with lag. I am very proud of 1.9, and think it just may be the fastest Hero Rom setup yet. I hope you think so too. Thank you again for your support!
