nice rom, better than google's. but there are few things i don't like about this HTC rom: orange stars are not looking so good on black background =) and there is a dark line between messages in gtalk app, which wasn't in google's version.
thanks for firmware :)

p.s. plz add back bluex app :p

does this work with vodafone magic uk and do you have to have a rooted phone

yes, it does work with vf's magic. to be able to apply custom updates just boot with included recovery image from fastboot menu (back + power, then in terminal: fastboot boot <name of recovery img file>)

Hi, what's up with the YouTube app? Can't we watch videos in high quality? This is one of the fastest ROMs I've tried and I just love it, but the hq issue is quite dissapointing. Is there a fix for this? ^^

YouTube downloader won't work for me either :'(

Thanks for your time and gz for the great work.

PS: No need for apps2sd really, this thing flies even at default clockspeed :)

Just flashed your ROM, first impressions are that it is pretty nice and fast. One problem though. I don't get the possibility to uninstall the applications that are installed through the applications menu, nor can I find them in the market to uninstall via it.

I guess the only way is to uninstall by removing the apk files in the /system partition. Maybe the permissions are wrong?

Will this work on 32b board on vodafon google my french is non existant i'm affraid

Yes, it works on 32b, I have a Vodafone branded HTC Magic from Germany and running this rom on it now.
