Update: to enable bluetooth pairing do this in a terminal
$ su
# chown 1002.1002 /data/misc/bluetoothd

Now not only blueooth pairing starts working again but bluetooth music works too


I've pushed my VaniljFroyo modfications into dzo's repo so there is no VaniljFroyo anymore.

The official thread is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=710105

The latest build can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/androidhtc/files/

Instructions
1. Get the latest build.
2. Rename it to androidinstall.tgz and place it in the andboot folder.
3. Install system.
4. Boot the system.

To gain an extra 11Mb of RAM on Kaiser or Polaris, get the kernels I've posted here: Get the kernel from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=7079594&postcount=299
Vogue users can get this with the latest official kernel from dzo (2010-07-06)

-----------------------------------

Old stuff below

This is basicly dzo's latest Fresh Froyo release with some minor adjustments.
With latest I mean the latest version available as I write this which is this version: http://sourceforge.net/projects/androidhtc/files/system-froyo-01-07-10_18.tgz/download

Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/androidhtc/files/2010-07-02/VaniljFroyo_RLS2.zip/download

RLS2
- Market now works (Thanks mssmison and Incubus)
- Slight QVGA adjustments to the drawer phone keypad.
- Added google maps framework (needed by apps that uses maps)
- Added Facebook and Twitter from FRF85b just because there was room left
- Removed nonworking MagicSmoke live wallpaper

RLS1
- Wifi support
- QVGA adjusted bootanimation, backgrounds, DeskClock app and Music app.
- Added bash
- Added a bunch of nice scripts that I made for VaniljEclair.
- Added compcache support.

Get a terminal from Market, then use the following scripts (always do an su first):

enable_compcache.sh - Enable compcache (use the command free before and after to see the difference)
disable_compcache.sh - Guess what it does?
wifi_level.sh low|medium|high|extreme (medium is the default, low does not work for me)
default_network.sh
hsxpa.sh
gprsclass.sh
lcd_density.sh

But you propably won't need to change anything but I recommend trying with and without compcache. It propably helps a bit.

Oh, and the odex.sh script is included and can be enabled from userinit.sh, just like with VaniljEclair RLS7 it takes care of upgrades and uninstalls on the next restart of the phone. Not sure really how it affects performance but since odexing the system apps gives a noticable boost it can't hurt.

Don't expect everything to work flawlessly and have fun!

You may want to try another Launcher like the very nice Launcher Pro that is available for free from the Market.
If cyanogen says this about running Launcher2 (which is what we have in Froyo) on HTC Dream/Sapphire(magic)
* Launcher2 (too clunky for these devices)
then I think we have a good reason to try other launchers aswell.

Haha, I just update to release 7c of VaniljEclair and you tease me with this.... :D
And so now I am running this and so far, no real problems. Make and recieve calls, phone syncs contacts, camera works reasonably well. Sometimes I am getting lines when snapping pic, but actual pic is fine with no lines. Only camera issue is trying to adjust zoom gives a FC.
Looking at apps now to see whats available. So far :2 thumbs up:

EDIT: Installed Astro to try and install some backed up apps thru Astros's backup function. Checking off the app I want to install and hit "install" button; Message says nothing is checked to install. Was able to navigate to backup folder directly and install app (Battery Widget.) Hitting OK caused Astro to go blackscreen. I'm thinking this is an Astro issue, not Froyo.

I was able to get the normal English keyboard by disabling the "Japanese IME" in Language and Keyboard settings. Not completely sure about stability yet but it seems to be working as expected now.

GPRS

Great work kallt_kaffe! Fast and stable build! I hope there shall be a fix for the market ;).

On first boot, there is no usual setup wizard, and I like that way:), but somehow my phone wont connect to GPRS, I have no data connection. Phone is working. Seemingly it recognised my Network APN settings, but still, there is no connection. Can someone help me, please?

Great work Kallt :). OS with newest NBH from dzo works f**kin awesome fast in comare to Eclair. But Still same issue like in Eclair RLS7b/c with bonus. On RLS7b/c I cannot call only on GSM, on FroYo cannot call on GSM/UMTS (on PolyMod 2.1d/g all works fine o_O)

Thanks again for Your hard work :)

here is a few of my findings so far...

betterterminal FCs
getprop fix from vaniljeclair doesn't fix it.

wifi is not connecting...(probably need to run script but having trouble without a terminal)

would like to see contacts and dialer that is used in eclair version.

other than that it looks very prommising....
for now I will keep vaniljeclair in nand and try to play with froyo on partitions.

Installed now, plus Incubus Market fix, which required a fresh install, since I merged the update with the installer tarball, it does find more apps, but is still not quite finding all my previous favourites, ( how can I survive without Facebook, or tapatalk?).

It is faster, or feels faster at any rate, looks nicer too, settings is less cluttered, and easier to navigate, I will have to give it my usual road test, but so far it looks like a winner :)
