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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I have tested N.S.A. with the Bravo Data++ version. I works just great.
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.
