2: Installation:
>> Copy PD98IMG.zip to your SDCARD
>> Shutdown, hold volume down & press power until you reboot into hboot; flash by pressing volume up & reboot
>> Reboot from bootloader into recovery & format your DATA + CACHE (use 4ext recovery - FULL WIPE will also work if your partitions already were ext3/ext4)

Quote:

3: Issues:
>> No network connection after first boot.
Fix: reboot. This is needed ONLY after the first boot.

Quote:

4: Features:
>> What started as a HDPI port the Hero's Hik@Ri ROM (froyo) ended up in a full-fledged gingerbread build.
Optimisations: both kernel as well as userland; there is no need to get into the technical details & how this rom differs from others; I'm not a supporter of self-propaganda. See for yourself.
>> Hik@Ri is geared towards my private needs. It certainly isn't built to "satisfy the masses", although it should be able to serve as a stable and performant base for most of you. My personal philosophy is minimalism, performance and stability, which is why you should bear in mind that this is an AOSP/vanilla ROM (no Sense or other bloated UI). There is thus no need to upload screenshots.
>> You need to install all your favourite software. Since everyone has his own preferences, these would be treated as bloat by some people should they have been bundled with the release. Which is why I uploaded a skinny version.
>> A lot of effort has been put into power saving. The current release has (or should have) an idle battery usage of 2%/h with WiFi turned on.

5: End notes:
>> I would like this thread to remain clutter-free, which is why, although I appreciate motivation & thanks, please refrain from posting "thanks", "can't wait to try it" etc.
What I'm expecting? ONLY constructive criticism and dev-related discussion.
>> I will not be posting changelogs. Major releases are most of the time complete reworks, and a changelog would be pointless. Bug fix uploads are referenced in the post concerning the release, as well as a short note in post #1.

Work in Progress:
- I'm working on what I call, InstaExec (IE).
The DHD is the perfect device to test it on (thanks to its 768 MB RAM).
Techie details:
Copy over /system | /data to a ramdisk (early in initrc), then do a switch_root and continue init script. The cons are a slower boot, of course. Syncing after-boot changes is on the todo list. Using IE will also imply that you're quite confident in RARE shutdowns. It would be a pain to wait for a couple hundred Mb's to get copied over each time you boot.
A crypted version is also in the works (although that would only make sense for /data/data, /data/misc and /data/system)
They key file HAS to be present in /mnt/sdcard, otherwise crypted mount will fail.

I have reported this project for the Evo 3D (or another at least dual core/1GB RAM device).
The DHD is not capable of handling the pre and post boot routines for phones requiring a reboot quite often.

I thought that was quite obvious.
I posted about it in the general forum. Just do a search. ;]

Okay guys, a test version is ready. Before I upload it, Lemme know a few things:

What apps you CAN'T live without (stock apps)
I want to get rid of bloat.
For example: why would you need 10 apps and widgets for Facebook and Twitter when you can replace that with TweetDeck?

That won't be a problem with the AOSP version I'm working on which will ultimately be Hik@Ri for DHD.

I could probably live without most of the stuff on there, would love to keep the big clock weather thing though. This is my first android phone so looking forward to playing/learning with it.

I've rooted my phone as per Evostances instructions, will i need to do anything else before I can flash a rom?

No. The key features of this ROM are based on his old Hero ROM (correct me if I'm wrong).

Thanks Adwinp, can't wait to give it a try.
