Presenting FroydVillain 1.1.1, TeamVillain's Froyo ROM (Android 2.2)

FroydVillain 1.1.1 INFO & Release Notes:
  • REMEMBER the ROM will only be at peak performance after it's been rebooted a couple of times, and when you've opened your apps once prior.
  • adb install won't work on this ROM, until you tick "Unknown Sources" in the Menu > Settings > Applications menu.
    This appears to be a new security feature. Similarly, apps pushed to /data/app won't work either. You might not notice the issue, but the app does not get any of its permissions it should have, meaning that it is probably useless, and might FC constantly or whatever. So remember to tick the Unknown Sources box
  • The stock camera doesn't work properly - it takes photos OK, but it doesn't do live preview. The app "Camera Magic", which is free on the market, works fine, so we recommend that.

Fixed in this release:
  • Multi-touch restored to improved touchscreen driver
  • Applied workaround for akmd running at 100% cpu utilisation (Thanks alankila)
  • Fixed GMail app resolution
  • VillainROM Updater now works
  • Compcache enable/disable script fixed (compcache on by default)
  • HTC Sense ringtones added

Issues outstanding:
  • Camera
  • Notification and chargeLEDs
  • Autobrightness (only dims when screen is turned off)


Coming from FroydVillain 1.1.0:
  • Do a wipe of data and dalvik at least.

Coming from any other ROM (Including FroydVillain 1.0.0):
  • Do a Full wipe, preferably including EXT.

Enjoy, and be sure to leave any feedback

Thank you,

Sounds awesome. Just out of curiosity, is the fix for the camera live preview planned at all?

Mind making a quick list of the differences over 2.1? and is flash 10.1 planned for the near future? i remember getting it to work (pretty slow mind) with a .apk someone made.

Thanks anyway, great job guys!

How does the apps on ext work? Do widgets and apps stored on ext show on home screen? Been using the test alpha as this problem occurred in full alpha.

Nice. I've been waiting for a fully working froyo port. The camera issue was the last big problem for me. Will probably try this out tomorrow and report back (it's late here in the uk)

Thought that with the official 2.1 out and most ROMs being based on that, I'd thought that that I would stop playing around with new roms for a while...

Well that's gone for a toss now - thanks Villain team - downloading now...
