Trackball Alert Patch to custom colors using lihermits app

v0.14     /28.06/
Camcorder is working, native omx encoding is working.
I've been lucky and can somehow play my recorded videos but reports say that it shouldn't do that.
Issues: video is capped at 15fps so it is a little choppy, recorded video is rotated 90 degrees
Usb tether is working, not 100% native, using a motorola tethering apk that runs in the background, but for the regular user no difference then regular tethering. (same as cm uses btw)
New options in evtoolbox
Moved stk.apk to system/app partition as it didn't work properly for cm7r2

Added new adhoc (need testing)
Fixed bad wifi from last release
Added some stuff in build.prop (thx dk_zero, mms might work as in his ROM now)
Removed both dhcpd choice from aroma

*This release is mainly for testing out the linero toolchain, that's why it's missing some improvments. I need to know if I should continue on this or if I should go back to google before I use more time fixing camera and usb tether etc.
v0.12     /11.06/
Not many major changes for us:
probably 200+ new commits here. Vast majority do not concern Desire. but thought it was worth mentioning
bump IMM76L
surfaceflinger hacks: make ui smoother (error in makefile prevented them from being turned on before) 
Added Dk_zero's script to stop bsod while charging
Also removed shaky's kernel as that causes the most problems.
Camera seems broken (video only)/ Will try fix it asap

v0.11     /03.06/
lockscreen 'wave' animations will follow re the unlock around (not just go right)
180 degree (upsidedown) rotation support
kernel updated: kgslv3.8, tiny rcu optimizations, autogroup, bfqv3r2, smartassv2, armv7 changes from caf (only stock kernel)
newer adreno libs: in combination with kernel updates should make ui noticeably smoother (same as for tiamat/shaky kernel)
updated cli tools: htop v.9, busybox updated 1.20.1, a2sd cleanup: checkext should work better.
Did fix some errors in updater script
Hopefully fixed "patched" gmaps (give wrong msg in aroma tough, havn't tested it)
Updated gapps
Did a "fix" on shaky's kernel that MIGHT solve BSOD while charging, not during regular use!
And quite a few things more that I forgot to write down before my PC crashed once again

v0.10.1   /28.05/
Fixed an error in build.prop that might have caused problems
Fixed supercharger v6 so it works.
This also stops reboot when installing apps
Updated kernel, a test kernel based on tiamat. Seems BSOD free!

v0.10      /26.05/
Readded a choice for stable kernel (old hwa)
Using the same adrenos as in 0.8 instead of 0.9, (increases bootime, but more stable)
Freed more space for cm7r2 + data++ to ensure no space issues
Gallery and panorama should now work for cm7r2
Some minor fixing with scripts
Slow wifi download is resolved for me at least
Based on a newer evervolv build (thx shaky)
Most of these changes isn't that effectful because camera didn't work out of the box so to get camera working then I had to "sacrifise" some of the new stuff. Nothing major and will give a detailed list later.
In one of the 3 installs I did my market was borked. Rebooted each time I downloaded an app. This was fixed by reflashing (with wipe)
**Seems it's supercharger that causes the problem, so avoid it this version

v0.9        /22.05/
Boot time improved
Removed sullier script and battery mod for now (will return when kernel is stable)
Also will delete those scripts at install
Updated drewis kernel
Updated shaky's kernel (Stock and strongly recommended)
Tried once again to fix gallery + maps issue for cm7r2 and data++
Some more things


v0.8.1      /18.05/
Two new kernels added one from shaky (stock)
and one from Drewis. 
They are based on different sources so havn't had time testing both properly but 
KGSL: update from hacked 3.7 -> pure caf 3.8
BFQ: update v2 -> v3r1 CPUFREQ: ondemand: updates from caf and shaky156 MISC: updates from caf (mainly to build new ksgl); 
Added the newest adreno libs
Added sulliers script which is a "New" cpu scaling
Fixed some permissions
Oh and added some theme changer (some evervolv thing) not very useful tbh

Patch isn't a 100% full update but it's close so if you only want to patch 0.7 that's fine.

[B]Patch + full ROM [/B]
Camera is now fully working (all features, it's still possible with improvent)
Youtube is also working as stock. To get stock videoplayback flash [url=http://w289670.open.ge.tt/1/files/8U5MlhH/0/blob?download]this[/url] (unstable) Use MxPlayer instead

Added batterymod (with kernel panic, might be really unstable!)

Added two more options to aroma:
- One is to choose camera without barcode scanner (more stable)

Did another attempt on fixing amarullz for cm7r2

Edit, doesn't work will patch later:

Updated Amarullz a2sd
+ some other small things

v0.4.2         /29.02/
Phone should not lockup anymore when rotating display. Landscape mode is still strange, status bar is rendered halfway off screen...but only when rotating right...going left its fine
Moved to cayniarbs stock(ish) kernel with my kgsl commits and ksm/zram backported from 3.0
EVtoolbox: new menu 'performance' control zram(aka compcache) and ksm, both disabled by default. ksm will reduce memory overhead by 10-15mb with minimal cpu usage (0-1%). ive read that ksm likes to have swap (10% zram should be enough) but*youll have to experiment and see. also added 'processor' menu (also from cm) to view/control cpu stats.
Apps2sd: support moving /data/data, (run 'a2sd install' again and choose y when asked about appdata) im still wary of how to handle wipes when appdata2sd is active. so ive added two functions to a2sd: 'nodatasd' which removes appdata2sd flag and optionally removes the appdata from sdcard and 'nosysdata' which removes only the system appdata (ie anything starting with com.android) from the sdcard
Browser: i revised hwcomposer. redering is faster < 1 to 2 secs max under heavy scrolling
Rebooting issues should be resovled
Added /system/etc/sysctl.conf to set various vm values. Feel free to modify to your liking
Updated both Nova and Apex launchers
Camera preview is still broke.

.. And so on

v0.4.1.4      /17.02/
Reverted Calendar due to an issue.
Edited updater-script to work properly
Moved Bootanimation to free up space for cm7r2.
Reverted Google Talk aswell.
v0.4.1.1     /16.02/
Sorted contact sync. 
Removed setup wizard because of FC issues.

v0.4.1       /16.02/
kernel update: 32bit color (fixes gradient backgrounds)
hwcomposer: rewrote from scratch for qsd8k. (main fix is screen off animation)
statusbar: new toolbox, settings button back to opening settings (swipe to change screens). notifications back to stock behavior. toolbox can even be turned off in evtoolbox
browser: slowed rendering, (fuzzy text takes a few seconds to clear up) is much faster now. (1-2 sec instead of 4-5)
Added aGPS as a option instead
Updated gapps.

known issues:
reboots under heavy load, it seems this is an out of memory error: ics seems to be a huge memory hog now that opengl is enabled. can be partially remedied by using a large swap partiton (i set mine at 256mb and haven't had a reboot since) or you can try setting 0 swap and see what happens. ive also changed a couple dalvik-heap properties but im still investigating work arounds and/or a fix.
removed omx libs due to build error (just use the ones from p8 if you really want them)
rotation still broke, seems to lockup the most on the home screen.
and everything else that was broke in 0.4.0RC5

v0.4.0RC5  /15.02/
Fixed most of the coloring issues
The modded mms.apk now work (choice in Aroma)
Data ++ have their own optimized installation

v0.4.0RC3  /14.02/
Small fixes:
Small change build.prop
Changed some dhcpd stuff (no major changes)
Fixed so you can manually search for provider.
added aGPS fix, report if this makes gps worse.
Added back the setup wizard at first boot.

The big changes is that we included a touch based installer which gives you possibility to customize the ROM. [B]Don't request things to be added in this forum.[/B] If you want make a post in desire general and I'll drop by from time to time. If there is a lot of nagging I'll just remove the whole thing.
What you can do:
It automatically finds your hboot and sorts the ROM accordingly.
Choose launcher (stock, nova, apex and trebuchet)
Choose a2sd scripts (stock, amarullz, regular a2sd, dalvik2sd)
Choose if you want softkeys
Choose if you want mms.apk that doesn't convert more then 3 sms to mms.
There is of course a typical installation, that keeps everything as the stock ROM is.

When you say the sms and calling work, does that mean the radio works, so my sim can connect to the network? Also is this for Desire GSM (UK)

Quoting this from the other thread

Come on guys. This thread is getting more and more amateur as the days go on. No one knows which is the current version. Anyone who has working source should upload it to github so we can all work from it instead of this fractured, football team full of 7 year olds effort that's ongoing. I'm currently working on source from scratch but given the access I have to my environment, its taking ages.

If I had the source you guys were working on, we could all progress faster

The old thread was so full of bad links and really messy so i'll make a new one.

First of all this is not an everyday ROM and thing might not work.

Try and see. OP states this is not an everyday ROM. It's for development, please keep the thread clean.

Great thx
guys, trying trying, brilliant work
As mentioned, the last thread was messy. This is a development forum, the whole point of the thanks button is to stop unnecessary posts like this.

It is so frustrating to try and look at progress and have to read through pages of people posting pointless stuff like "It doesn't work on my phone", "I have this setup, will it work?", especially in the old thread. Please try and leave the thread clean so the actual developers can keep a track of where they're at.

Out of 13 posts so far, 10 are a waste of space and don't need to be here - they are just clutter (11 out of 14 if you count this post of mine)

Sandvold, you really need to either a) get a mod in here b) alert a mod that this thread needs regular cleaning or c) just don't bother, update irc only and don't post anything on XDA until something bootable and regularly usable is available

The trouble with 99% of people on XDA is they never read the first post. So a first post saying "don't ask how to make it boot" almost always goes ignored. Sad, but this place is full of n00bs these days.

Silightly modified the Nikez_Base_build by swapping two APK's posted on IRC. It no longer shows software buttons. It's easy to do it by yourself but I figured it would be easier to just upload it.


If you're more of a do it yourself person:
Take the original Nikez_Base_build from the OP and simply overwrite these two APK's before flashing:


But why do that? It's silly, just download the flashable zip above :D
