skink Clean Desire v1.4
based on prj Clean Desire v0.3.2


I've made this build based on great prj Clean Desire v0.3.2 build. It has the same features + I’ve added things that I was missing the most:
  • Clockwork Mod 1.3
  • Apps2SD+
  • Evo keyboard
  • Reboot option in shutdown menu
  • Notification Menu Power Control Widgets
  • Un-squashfsed, oxed system app and framework
  • ROM is rooted (SU app + SU binaries)
  • Percentage display on battery
  • Fast and low battery drain
Now you don’t have to worry about decreasing internal storage when you install more application. You don’t also lose access to application when you phone is connected in drive mode to computer, because application data is being hold on ext3 partition on SD card. That partition isn’t mounted when your phone is connected to computer. The things that are redirected to this partition are: /data/app, /data/app-private, /data/dalvik-cache and /data/data.

Requirements:
  • MAGLDR v1.13
  • ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3 (included with package)

Changelog:
v1.4
  • fixed missing APN's and hopefully data connection drop
  • hopefully fixed low call volume

v1.3
  • added Notification Menu Power Control Widgets (based on JsChiSurf and mendozinas work; see screenshots; thanks to mini_robot; you can customize this widgets using notification.widgets_signed.zip addon)
  • hopefully fixed high call volume (thanks to athulag and oyvpet)
  • added option to install without SD card
  • now by default after clean installing /data/data folder also will be moved to SD card (you will have more free internal storage; if you'd like to have /data/data on NAND use data2NAND.cmd script from "extras" folder)

v1.2
  • fixed Angry Birds issue (fixed problem with installing big apps; it needs repartition of NAND; see upgrade info)

v1.1
  • Supports AD Recovery in MAGLDR (now you have access to ClockworkMod Recovery from NAND partition)
  • added Evo keyboard as default
  • added reboot option (normal and hot restart, based on snq- mod) to shutdown menu (see screenshots)
  • for those who would like to customize their themes I’ve added an optional skink_Clean_Desire_v1.1_update_deodex_signed.zip deodexed package (see addons)

v1.0 initial release
  • based on prj Clean Desire v0.3.2
  • basically clean Desire build
  • removed: Maps, Youtube, GMail, Flash Player, Facebook (these was old version; install what you need using Market)
  • un-squashfsed, oxed system app and framework
  • ROM is rooted (SU app + SU binaries)
  • percentage display on battery
  • no 60ma drain after call
  • Wifi mac individual for every device
  • Smartass governor by default
  • G-Sensor freeze fixed
  • low volume in-call fixed

  • Instantaneous GPS Fixation CWR Updated 2.14.11 21-02-2011 - for those who have problem with catching GPS signal; thanks to AngelDeath and feloccio
  • arabic_support_signed.zip 14-02-2011 - for those who needs Arabic support (it needs testing, please report your experience; I don't know Arabic so I can't tell if it's ok.)
  • skink_Clean_Desire_v1.1_update_deodex_signed.zip 11-02-2011 - for those who would like to customize their themes

For version 1.0:


Supported themes:If you’re looking for custom themes you can check http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=630 forum, where you can find lots of modifications. Not all will work but you can try (always make CWM backup before). Main reason why it’s not working is old type of META-INF\com\google\android\update-script in update.zip. You have to convert it to updater-script. Please post here any working theme and I’ll update list.

How to install custom theme:
  1. Power on phone holding power button to access to MAGLDR menu.
  2. Select the "AD Recovery" item.
  3. Select the "backup and restore->Backup" item.
  4. After backup will be done select the "reboot system now" item.
  5. Using USB cable connection or SD card reader copy downloaded custom theme zip to root folder of SD card.
  6. Clean /data/dalvik-cache folder (use "rm -rf /data/dalvik-cache/*" in android terminal or in adb shell on pc or Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache option in CWM).
  7. Reboot phone and hold power button to access to MAGLDR menu while booting.
  8. Select the "AD Recovery" item.
  9. Select the "install zip from sdcard->choose zip from sdcard" item and select downloaded custom theme zip.
  10. After flashing will be done select the "reboot system now" item.
  11. Eventually if something goes wrong use CWM "backup and restore->Restore" item to restore from backup.

Everything is ok. It's just how Apps2sd+ work. You have ext3 partition on SD card that you normally don't see under SD & phone storage. On this partition are stored /data/app, /data/app-private and /data/dalvik-cache (eventually /data/data if you use method described under tips). This folders are linked to folders on internal storage. So for android nothing changed, but when you install apps they are physically stored on /system/sd/app, /system/sd/app-private and /system/sd/dalvik-cache. The simplest way to check available space is to use Titanium Backup. On first page you see: Internal Storage free space, SD card free space an SD card (a2sd) free space. (you can also use terminal app and command: df –h)

Is this ROM rooted? I remember I've tried to make my prj 0.3.2 rom see ad-hoc networks but I didn't manage to replace a "wpa supplicant" file.
Also, I'd like to go back to the good old sense ui in froyo

Pozdrawiam!
