You shouldn't need to put magldr in order for root. Mines rooted and I don't use magldr.

EDIT: The reason it looks unrooted is because superuser isn't in the rom when you first install. Download superuser from the market and that will make things work. I forgot I had to do that for my setCPU to work.

I've noticed data gets interrupted and I have to go to network to turn off the radio a few times. I'm on xda app and can't figure out how to search for this. Anyone know of a solution?

Is anyone else have trouble getting past the HTC Screen when it first boots up? I loved the NAND rom of the MYTouch4G, but I hated losing my Windows Mobile. If I can get this verion to work I will use it, unfortunately it is stuck in a endless HTC Screen. I have noticed that after I click the Haret file and I go into the linux boot, it dosen't load all the way like the othe SD Roms do, instead it goes to the Black HTC screen and stays there. I think this is the Problem. Any Ideas on how I fix it? BTW I know to click the CLRCAD file before clicking the HARET.

First check your SD card for errors, right click on your sd card, select properties/tools and check drive for errors.

If you are using other SD builds's on the same mem card, check on your startup.txt, change the name of the SD build and rename its folder.

When you got it working, try to update the kernel.

Hope this help.

How is your updated kernel experience?

Had not been using this one for a while, but was using Raf 1.9 with it.

Worked well with occasional data drops.

I got back to it today. It behaves as if I had a mytouch 4G. The market was uodated automatically to the new one. If only it had the better android keyboard.

    I have been wondering for awhile why no one was working with this ROM anymore. I really like the UI and it is perfect for those on T-Mobile. Since I have not heard anything from M-deejay about his Glacier build (He's probably working on Android 2.3) I figured we could come together to get this thing running perfectly. When booting up please keep in mind where the Desire HD builds came from and where they are now. They were TERRIBLY laggy at first and now they run really smooth. I have tried to keep this relatively stock with a few graphical changes that were to my liking. I also fattened up the system.ext2 file (around 50mb extra) so it will give us plenty of room to play around with. I will trim everything down when more things are fixed. Any devs and testers willing to help?

    What's NOT working?
    - Wifi calling (I removed it for now, it was taking up a HUGE amount of memory)
    - You tell me?

    What is working?
    - 5mp camera with flash & face detection now works
    - Mostly everything (Please let me know if you find something that isn't so we can work to get it fixed)
    - Most of the new T-Mobile apps should work now (Most require Wifi)

    Fixes & tips
    - If you have any data issues and are on T-Mobile, go into "Wireless & networks" and choose the other APN that is in the list.
    - To get 7 home screens instead of the 5 that comes stock, go into settings>>personalize and change "Home screen pages".

    Things to know!!!!
    - You might (possibly) notice things lagging a bit, and if you find something that is causing any of it please let me know. Thanks!
    - If you find something wrong or find something that will benefit the ROM please let me know too. If people want to do this I will add a list at the bottom with who fixed what (that's only fair)

    ***The main things I need help with are***

    (1) If you find something that may be causing the lag, please let me know :)

    (2) For some reason HSDPA seems to be stuck on all the time (at least for me) so if you see what is wrong please let me know, it may just be because its a 4G ROM.

    ***First boot setup***
    - After you boot up and log into everything in the setup, please wait until the sync icon in the status bar goes away to unlock the phone. Even after this you will notice some lag because if you like it or not the build will install all your apps from the market so this can take some time. After everything is done syncing and installing everything, please reboot your phone. When you boot back up you should be good to go but PLEASE don't unlock the phone until the sync icon goes away on first boot.

    If upgrading from V0.3 you should be able to keep the same data.img

    Moto,

    Any idea when your NAND version of this great build will be?

    Please make it compatible with Tmous and have it as a direct download.

    I'm about to see if Imilkas's Tmous version is up to par.

    I hope you can have yours up and running soon!


    Thanks!

    Its almost done, and it will be made for TMOUS. I will hopefully have it up in an hour or so :).

    I'm not a dev, but decided to give this a try.
    So far, this build is running well...except for the known contacts/myfaves and green camera with flash problems.

    I tried to change mine from the 5 screens to the 7 screens, but even after several full re-boots the 5 screens still remain...anyone else having this issue?
    I am uploading V0.3 that should fix almost all knows problems so just wait a little longer and you won't have to mess with those problems anymore. Ive never heard of the home screen switching to 5 before though, maybe try the suggestion from sullitf. Let's hope you won't have that problem in V0.3.
    Mine switched to 7 screens no problem, not sure why it wouldn't switch. Does the checkbox revert to unchecked when it reboots, or is it staying checked but only giving you 5 screens?

    May be some random problem with something on your desktop, you could try removing widgets and seeing if that fixes it. You should just be able to check the box and hit the home button, sense will reload itself

    Very good suggestion.
