GENERIC ROOTED ROM BASED ON
OFFICIAL HTC WWE ÉCLAIR 2.1 (RUU)


***ONLY FOR GSM HERO***


Description:


This ROM is as generic as possible but with root access. It's based on the WWE official HTC RUU for Éclair 2.1. Everything besides rooting is completely untouched. The OTA had some files only needed to update the phone through the OTA process which were now removed from the RUU (by HTC, not me). The com.htc.resources.apk file is the only one which is different between the OTA and RUU. I don't know the differences so it's up to you to install this or not but y
ou probably don't need to install this if you are currently using any of the OTA versions.


Features:
  • Official HTC WWE Éclair 2.1 (RUU)
  • Superuser v2.3.5 by ChainsDD
  • Updated to OTA v3.32.405.2
  • Rooted

How to install:
  • Wipe everything:
    • Data
    • Dalvik-cache
    • Battery Stats
    • Rotate Settings
  • Flash ROM via recovery mode.
  • Flash Radio via recovery mode (the phone will reboot twice, do not interrupt the process at any moment).
  • Reboot the system once after the initial boot.
I suggest to always reinstall the radio after flashing any ROM, I've had GPS problems in the past for not doing so. Either flash the one below or the one that suits you/your network better.


Downloads:

Thanks:

  • To every single person around the Android dev scene and to everyone which helped me along the way, directly or indirectly, it's just too many people to remember and name them all.

Disclaimer:
  • I will not be held responsible for any damage to the phone and it's your responsibility to make the necessary backups before flashing this ROM.

GENERIC ROOTED ROM BASED ON
OFFICIAL HTC WWE ÉCLAIR 2.1 (OTA)
+ ADDITIONS


***ONLY FOR GSM HERO***


Description:


This ROM is based on 42turkeys work that you can find on this thread. I'm doing this because I prefer to have a generic and clean ROM and 42turkeys removed some files from his ROM and he's also using an older version of Superuser. I also did a few small improvements that in my point of view, don't take away from being a generic ROM.


Changes to the original
42turkeys ROM:
  • Fixed problem with rooting.
    • Courtesy of Kimera ROM by Exit93.
  • Complete update-script with the usual BusyBox symlinks and a few other things.
    • Taken from MoDaCo Chungwa repack by Paul.
  • Updated BusyBox to v1.15.3 and added Sqlite3 v3.5.9.
  • Replaced older Superuser version with ChainsDD 2.1 version.
  • Added extra locales:
    • en_PT, en_FI, fr_BE, fr_CH, pt_PT, nb_FI, da_FI, sv_FI.
    • Taken from MoDaCo Chungwa repack by Paul.
  • Re-added all apps/files removed by 42turkeys:
    • Maps.apk, PDFViewer.apk, Quickoffice.apk, Stk.apk, Stk.odex, YouTube.apk.
  • Moved some apps/files to DATA instead of SYSTEM:
    • PDFViewer.apk, PDFViewer.odex, QuickOffice.apk, teeter.apk, teeter.odex.
    • The system partition would be full otherwise and the ROM was not successfully installed.
  • Added huge and updated APNs list.
    • Courtesy of TeamVillain ROMs.
  • Added small tweaks to the update-script file.

How to install:
  • Wipe everything:
    • Data
    • Dalvik-cache
    • Battery Stats
    • Rotate Settings
  • Flash ROM via recovery mode.
  • Flash Radio via recovery mode (the phone will reboot twice, do not interrupt the process at any moment).
  • Reboot the system once after the initial boot.
I suggest to always reinstall the radio after flashing any ROM, I've had GPS problems in the past for not doing so. Either flash the one below or the one that suits you/your network better.

That's odd, this ROM is based on 42turkeys and I don't see anyone complaining about root on his thread. Rooting wise, I only replaced the old Superuser with the newer, didn't change anything else.

EDIT: Upload finished...

What do you mean? To make root work? It was a few issues in the update-script. Basically removed /system/bin/su and created a symlink to /system/xbin/su.

And yes, I tested it, I already stated which apps I tested this with .
