The Philosophy:
There must be users out there that just want a simple Base ROM on which they can install whatever they want and once in a while just flash an update without the need to Wipe and restore all over again.

The Solution:
There are no ROM's that fit my needs. So I made my own personal stripped down ROM. And why not share it in the way that I strip, change an customize it for myself.

The result:
Probably the most un-fanboy-friendly ROM.
It has practically nothing that is cool, no apps and extra's, niente.
It's clean and setup for the simple man that needs all the space he can get.
(That and minimum support for Droidwall and AddFree)
Here's a few screenshots of it's Blackness.

All the usual applies, do a NanDroid, 32.47.00.32U_5.10.05.23 Radio suggested. (myself I like 32.46.00.32U_5.10.05.17_2 better)
Do a Full Wipe IF Rom doesn't boot @ First Flash. (Hopefully your last Wipe Ever)
And a partitioned SD card with Fat32 Partition First, Second a Ext3 (or Ext4) << Partition, and a small or empty Linux-Swap partition at the end.


The Download:
N.S.A.GingerBlack.2011-02-03.FF.zip (First Flash)
You can un-install: APN Backup & restore, Flickr, Friendstream, PluginManager, HTC Album, HTCCarPanel, HTC Setup Wizard, Kickback, Launcher Pro, HTC Mail, Setup Wizard, SoundBack, Sim Toolkit & Talkback if you don't need or want them around anymore.

The Update: ( For the Faithful Few)
If your updating from Pre 2011-02-03 versions un-install HTC Album first Before Flashing.
N.S.A.GingerBlack.2011-02-03.UPD.zip
UPD, does not contain Setup Wizards, AdFree, APN Backup
Only Flash the Update Zip if you are already running a N.S.A.201x-xx-xx.FF.zip or N.S.A.201x.xx.xx.UPD.zip. You should never need to Wipe anything when you flash an upd.zip. But still a NanDroid sometimes doesn't hurt. And to be on the safe side always have an APNBackup on your SD card
(you only need one)


FAQ is in Post #3

If you are interested in S-Offing your device and flashing an HBoot image with different partitions.
I have tested N.S.A. with the Bravo Data++ version. I works just great.

Extra Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Media Download.
For on the Root of Your SD Card.
Original Ringtones, Alarms and Notifications.
Wallpapers From Android, Droid 2R2D2, Droid X, eBoy, G2, Galaxy S, HTC, LG Optimus, Nexus One, Nokia N900, Palm Pre, Wood Textures.
You can off course delete wallpapers you don't like from this collection.

To Put It Simply, This ROM IS STRICTLY BAREBONES.
If it's not there, install it, it's what the market and freedom of choice is for.

Most Credits go to Paul @ Modaco from which Rom's this still uses a few parts from and which work the early versions where based on. Richard Tripp for the Uvoc Kernel. Benny879 for the use of his skinned LauncherPro & signals23 for updating it.

Please share your thoughts in a constructive way.

Lightbulb My Suggestions of Apps to replace some of the HTC Stuff
  • WallPapers >> Flikkie Wallpapers HD
  • RingToneTrimmer >> RingDroid
  • Google Talk >> Nimbuzz
  • HTC Streaming Player >> Flikie HD Wallpapers can take care of this to. (if I'm right)
  • HTC Music >> Mort Player + MortAudioBook PLayer + Mort Widget.
  • FaceBook >> FaceBook (Or Just LauncherProPlus)
  • FlashLight >> QuickSettings (has a nice FlashLight Options and is a great CommManager to reach from virtually any screen in notification area)
  • Peep >> Twitter or LauncherPro+
  • World Clock >> AlarmClockPlus V2
Other recommendations that you do not need to install:
Shootme
Astro FileManager
RomManager
Instant Heart Rate Monitor

FAQ
Q: I get an error when flashing the UPD file.
A: Flash again, it's having problems making \Data\App\, which maybe even is a good thing.

Q: I cannot update Google Maps & Google Voice Search?
A: Go to Settings >> Applications >> Manage Applications >> All Aplications >> App >> Delete Data >> Wipe Cache >> Force Close >> Remove App >> Install From Market.

Q: How do I re-ad or ad another Battery Mod/Theme?
A: Check this post for instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=42

Q: How should i partition my SD Card for the Ext3 version of A2SD+?
A: http://androidandme.com/2009/08/news...droid-apps2sd/

Q: Does this rom Support Ext4 partitions in A2SD+
A: Yes it Does.

Q: Is possibile use SetCPU?
A: Yes, and/but it also has the Screen off Governer to scale down to 245MHZ with screen off. And you can only Underclock, there's no kernel used to overclock.

Q: When I Go to Settings >> Personalize >> Scenes,Settings Crashes?
A: There's no Sense, so hence these settings will not work.

Exclamation
This Rom is based on the Desire 2.29 OTA.

I Am Not An Android Dev Or Cook, just a old XDA Member and Mod that cannot get his Fix with all the Roms on XDA Desire Forum's, with experience of cooking WM ROM's

Since it has almost nothing the list of added stuff is very short.
  • My own own Ringtone
  • A2SD+ Ext3 & 4
  • IPTables updated to support DroidWall
  • Hosts Updated.
  • LauncherPro 0.8.3.0 included as Launcher (In My Opinion The Best Launcher Around and.worth the Double that is being asked for in the Plus Version, you like it support the Dev)
  • SU Root
  • Slightly Customised EnergyStar to Droid BootScreen
  • Wake by Trackpad Only
  • Wifi Sleep Fix (No Wifi N support)
  • Klutsh's bravo-keypad.kcm.bin fix
  • PerfLock Disabled
  • DSPManager and libaudioflinger.so
  • Reboot Options on ShutDown Mod (only in latest UPD version)
  • GingerBread IME
  • APN Backup (For those playing around with adding Battery & Framework Mods's and suddenly finding their APN's gone.
What is extra in the UPD (Update Version)
The UPD does not contain Google Setup Wizard & HTC SetupWizard, because your not going to need them anymore at this point. It also has full battery percentage and Notification Power Mods and Reboot options.

Changes opposed to a Stripped Down MCR R9 WIP ROM.
Removed:

  • No Youtube
  • No Google Maps
  • No RingTones and Extra Notifications (just the bare minimum)
  • No G-Mail App (Gmail is now downloadable from Market and can go Nicely onto A2SD ; or install your other Favourite Mail App)
  • No Sense Home Launcher
  • No QuickOffice
  • No PDF Reader
  • No Calculator
  • No FlashLight (it's in the Notification Mod anyway)
  • NO FLASH, NO FLASH, you want it, it's available from Market now to nicely go onto A2SD+
  • Did I Mention NO FLASH.
  • No FootPrints
  • No Peep
  • No Game With A Ball Called Teeter
  • No Voice Recorder
  • No HTC World Clock
  • No GTalk.apk (GoogleTalk)
  • MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk
  • No HTC LiveWallpapers.apk (Hmm so many nice Live Wallpapers to choose from Market and i'll be adding a few HTC live wallpapers as separate Downloads)
  • No HtcRingtoneTrimmer.apk
  • No HtcSyncwidget.apk, htcsettingwidgets.apk, HtcWeatherWallpaper.apk, HtcProfilesWidget.apk, HtcRingtoneWidget.apk, HtcProfilesWidget.apk, HtcPhotoWidget.apk, htcmsgwidgets.apk, htccontactwidgets.apk, htcbookmarkwidget.apk, HtcClockWidget.apk, htccalendarwidgets.apk, htccalendarwidgets.apk, HtcAddProgramWidget.apk, com.htc.WeatherWidget.apk, com.htc.MusicWidget.apk, com.htc.FriendStreamWidget.apk, com.htc.FMRadioWidget.apk
  • No GoogleFeedback.apk
  • No HtcStreamPlayer.apk
  • No HtcMusic.apk
  • No HtcCopyright.apk (Who Cares and Who Looks, we all now that ROM's breach this Copyright anyway, It's Rom Waste)
  • No GoogleFeedback.apk (I'm allergic to anything that has any potential of Callbacks)
  • No Qualcom Logging/testing Tool
  • No FieldTest.apk (WTC do normal, wouldn't care less users need this?)
  • No Facebook.apk (You Want it Download It from Market to A2SD+)
  • No DebugTool.apk (If it works it works)
  • No DCSUtility.apk, DCSImpl.apk (Don't know what their For, And it Doesn't Break Anything, Out With The Trash )
  • No libpdfreader.so, libmode10.so, libmode10Graphics.so, libmode10_wallpapers.so, libAudioTrimmer.so, com.htc.rss.jar
  • No HTC WallPapers as there's no App to Pick Them (But I do provide a ShipLoad of Wallpapers to set using Flikie or 3D Gallery in the MultiMedia Download)
Iif your wondering, then nope it's not in this ROM.

But if your curious just NanDroid and Flash anyway

Like Peter Chou Said, Make It Yours

Replaced libaudioflinger.so for working DSPManager
Added STK.apk and colour Calibration Mod to FF
Removed Google Voice Search & Maps as these are now installing correctly from market again.


If you already have an FF or a Previous UPD version installed that you are upgrading from you can skip right to the latest UPD version.

ChangeLog N.S.A.2010-11-16.UPD: (Updated with Wifi Fx)
(If You are one of the unlucky 50 first with Wifi Not Working QuickFix Just Flash over This)
Changed Memory settings to:
FOREGROUND_APP_MEM 3584
VISIBLE_APP_MEM 4096
SECONDARY_SERVER_MEM 6144
HOME_APP_MEM
8192
HIDDEN_APP_MEM 7168
CONTENT_PROVIDER_MEM 7680
EMPTY_APP_MEM 8192

Moved several system apps to data, so these can be removed if you don't want these.
But it still frees up at least 7MB on system partition
Moved Apps:
Keyboard Calibration
HTC_IME Modv27 for F22
FriendStream
HTC Album
HTC Mail
Plugin Manager (needed for Friend-stream, so if not using Friend-stream it can also be removed)

Also added to data/app:
Gallery3D, HtcCarPanel, kickback, Android Music, soundback & talkback.
These can be removed and will not be in future UPDates (will be moved to FF for the First Flashers looking for more Fullness in their live)

Not needed but here's an updated Different Framework with Menu Unlock Function if you need this for this version.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/hqz08v....Framework.zip

Added Gallery3D, HtcCarPanel, kickback, soundback, talkback & Android Music to data/app.
These can be removed if not needed or wanted and will not be in next UPD versions (will be moved to FF version)
ChangeLog N.S.A.2010-10-13.UPD:
Moved and Symlinked bravo-keypad.kl & framework-res.apk to data/local so when replacing these an UPDate will not overwrite these when you change them.
(You still need to replace these through an flashable .zip file)
Replaced libaudioflinger.so for working DSPManager
Removed STK.apk and Calibrate Screen.apk as most updaters now already have this.

Fixed wrong Lock screen slider graphics. Reduced the size of some graphics. Added slightly edited Battery icons from my Chrome Theme.

Your Pulling My Leg

But to be honoust ATM i'm actually playing around with AurxT's Sense HD ROM ATM, it's cool but also mucho bloated.
The Super Fast Boot is not as fast when you pull the battery.
It only works when you actually use the Power Down Option Only so it looks more like some sort of Sleep mode.

I'll think over the weekend if I'd go for a Desire HD Based Rom but then with the NSA concept.
