DamageControl Sense 2.1 ROM - Espresso optional! - 100% complete!


This ROM is now 100% for a reason! Please read below!

Why is this 100%
  • There is a fix for *nearly* every problem - just search the thread!
  • For things there isn't a fix for, there is a workaround that works better
  • The rest of the problems are problems that cannot be fixed until there is a better leak, we get our hands on the source of the kernel, or Sprint releases something. However, it should be noted that the problems are extremely minimal. Microscopic, even.

There are workarounds to nearly everything. Things that cannot be fixed are problems with the leak itself. There is really no reason not to upgrade to this ROM as far as functionality is concerned - problems are MICROSCOPIC!!! If you believe the Sprint update really is going to come in two weeks, go ahead and use this ROM now! Changing to the official one will be easy!

This thread is 225+ pages long, you CAN and WILL find a fix to find a fix if you look for it!!!

Installation Steps:
-Download whichever ROM you want between Espresso or Normal (Decaf?)
-Rename the file to and flash like you would any other ROM. Note: it may be a good idea to wipe EVERYTHING!!! You MUST flash if you are coming from a different ROM.

If the ROM fails to boot, wipe your ext partition!!!

To get Apps2SD (Applications are stored on your SD card - must be partitioned!

MMS Problems?:
-If you have MMS problems, download this:
-Rename to and flash it to your phone.

Other reported problems:
-Handcent will not send MMS. This is a problem with every 2.1 ROM and is not something that we can fix.

-Wifi tether is included.
-If you refuse to tether using wifi, you can use EasyTether Lite or something similar that is available in the Market.

Worse signal?
-You do not have a worse signal because of this ROM. It has less bars at the top.

Apps force closing all the time?
-Boot into recovery, go to Other and select the Fix UID option.

Invalid authentication with Google
-There is something wrong that is fairly deep, but it is a problem with the leak of the Eris 2.1 ROM. This only happens when you have a message or voicemail waiting.

Voicemail notification
-Go into the menu, then go to settings, click the call menu and then click Clear Voicemail Notification. Also make sure you change the voicemail service number to your own number!!!

Visual Voicemail
Use Google Voice or Youmail. We need something from Sprint to get Visual Voicemail to work.

Battery Life
Your battery life shouldn't change much. If you are experiencing problems, try the 'airplane mode' fix, and check your CDMA PRL settings.

Other Problems?:
-Try rebooting.
-If that doesn't work, backup your device through nandroid and then wipe everything!
-Search, then post. There are over 1,000 posts here, most likely someone has experienced the same problem as you.

Why won't Handcent send MMS?
Because it is an incompatibility issue.

Why can't I send MMS?
Because either you are not on Sprint or you need to apply the fix.

What is the difference between Espresso and the normal version?
Check the screenshots.

What about Visual Voicemail?
Until we get something from Sprint, this won't work. However, you can use Google Voice or you can use Youmail. Both work great.

My Google Voice doesn't work!
Use version 0.20 to fix it.

Bank of America, other apps don't work
Looking into this problem...

Superuser shows up blank
Make sure you have debug mode on.

What's Next for this ROM?:
I will continue to update this ROM with small fixes and things that are nice, but I consider this fully functional. I am going to work on smaller things that will enhance the ROM a bit. This isn't the last update!

About this ROM:
I decided to make this ROM after some other ROMs just weren't working out for me. Things were far too buggy, didn't seem to work very well, and it all seemed a little clunky. I decided that I would try to combine the best of the ROMs, not doing it the typical way (by just combining stuff I like), but by combining things to make it functional. This ROM is meant to be fast, stable and reliable. I will not add things that will load down the system or kill battery life.

I decided on the name (with help) because of the recent problems on XDA. The community was not united, and I thought the best way to unite everyone was to bring in a new ROM with a new vision and focus. This ROM has been incredibly successful in this way, thanks to those who started this ROM's thread out the right way. I believe we have a lot of good spirit here and we can continue with the attitude of helping one another and helping one another out, all personal interests aside.

I hope that you enjoy this ROM and find that it suits your needs.

Make sure you wipe if you are coming from a different ROM!!!

Microscopic quirks:
Trackball light intermittent
Asks you to log in when you have some type of message waiting

Special thanks goes to Avalaunchmods, gbhil, flipz, and everybody who has helped out and to every community member who has been supportive and uplifting! Each of you have helped in your own ways, and that is the essence of a true community.

I am usually not someone who asks for donations, however I am getting married soon and it certainly wouldn't hurt. You can donate whatever by clicking here. I strongly believe in open source and in developers working together towards a common good. I hope you all enjoy the ROM and that we can build this together.

Uh, what did I break?

Check your thread. I got your Rom this morning and loved it except there were too many bugs. I don't mean any disrespect. I will probably switch to your ROM when you get it worked out.

Good intentions, but way to burn the person responsible FOR EVERYTHING IMPORTANT WORKING! In the future try to not offend the real devs.

All that aside, I'll give it a try and let you know what I find.
