SLIDEVILLAIN 1.1.0 RC

The SlideVillain ROM is based on the latest test leak of the RUU for the MyTouch Slide. It's a very impressive, intelligent Sense UI which is based on the new Espresso Rosie. The main benefits of this ROM are its stunning looks, impressive speed and the ability to select themes. The ROM is based on Android 2.1 and is VERY Stable - easily stable enough for daily use.

First things first, a huge thanks to : homersp for the several fixes provided for the previous and the inevitable few that will follow, Pulser for his non-stop, round the clock dedication & his OTA work, Kendon for his outstanding work on the kitchen, Behnam for being a knowledgeable bugger that's always happy to help, LennyUK for his omni-presence, Manup456 for his theming of the OTA app, and every single donator, and user of VillainROM.co.uk. Oh, and to the nation of China for their constant (if not humorous support!)

SlideVillain 1.1.0 Changelog:

- Multi-language support now available
- Theme crash fixed
- Improved OpenGL performance
- De-pinked the icons
- Implemented OTA (Over the Air) Update apk + associated binaries
- Fixed some of the crashes when navigating
- Changed Browser icon
- APN Fix
- USB Fix

INSTRUCTIONS

1. RUN A NANDROID BACKUP.
2. FULL WIPE REQUIRED - to fix the theme crash.
3. Flash the rom - THEN flash the BUBBLE hotfix if you want winmo style bubbles removed.
4. Boot
5. Theme Selector should not crash now (if it does, do a full wipe of DALVIK)

That should have been a tweet which in turn ought to have been retweeted in the face of HTC, very good remark indeed

So to clarify, is this for myTouch 3G or myTouch Slide? If Slide, it hasn't come out yet, right? If not Slide, then can you please clarify which models work with this?

Edit: noticed it was in the G2 forum - is that the only phone this ROM works with? The European Hero?

I will attempt to hotfix some of these issues on my lunch break, from the comfort of my car on the laptop that resides in there.
