1.6.4 Changlog

- This rom was compiled from cyanogenmod's cm6.1.0-DS as a base, which can be seen here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Compile_CyanogenMod_for_Dream_and_Sapphire
- New apps2ext method, much cleaner and friendlier (you don't need a ext partition)
- Firstboot.sh removed
- Removed Firerat's AIO Patch. If you want to enable swap you need to go to his post and get it from there.
- Kernel extractor removed. This is using pershoot's kernel and the source can be viewed here: http://droidbasement.com/db-blog/
- New Market added, will try and post a pic of it soon, it's blue themed
- Speeded up boot time, and overall performance is faster and more stable
- Vm heap size changed to 32m default (Less settings to change on boot, but you can enable surface dithering just fine, as well as locking everything in memory)


SparksMod 2.0 Changelog

This rom was made specificly to be used with Rom Manager and Clockworkmod Recovery by Koush
-Apps:
Gapps to rom, but they install seperately from the rom itself to ensure a clean installation. No need to flash more than one thing
Zeam Launcher + Go Launcher, the GB Launcher seemed to be having some memory leaks, feel free it try other launchers from the market if you experience any lag issues over time
Rom Manager. You can use rom manager
Updated apps, android term, GB Keyboard, others, all free apps of course
-OpenGLES
I added a newer version to the rom to increase performance. I found it on this thread: http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...1-on-htc-hero/
-Wipe System to the rom
I added erase_image to the rom as a tool to wipe only the system partition before installing the rom itself. You will still need to select backup current rom and wipe data and cache with rom manager!
-New Ported boot animation from 144Saint, out new graphics designer , along with 2 new wallpapers, one of them is the new default wallpaper
-Added Added data/data bind script so your internal storage never goes down

can it turn off the ext3 on sd or install the rom without sd ext3? THAX:p

Just don't partition the sdcard, then u can use the built in froyo apps2sd.

EDIT: you might come across some problems with out a partition, basically the launchers and a couple apps are installed on apps2ext on boot, so I highly recommend you make a partition , or else you'll be missing some key apps. If you don't want to use app2ext after wards then go to terminal app type:
Su
sh /system/etc/fr-patch141-BETA.txt apps2sd

Then you should get option to move all data/data apps to SD say no, then if you will get option to move apps to actual native apps2sd and say yes.
OR you can just use apps2ext so u don't have to do all that, and apps2ext is faster.

It does work actually haha, go into cyanogenmod settings OR spare parts, I can't remember off the top of my head actually but yeah there should be the option for what you want the home button to do, for me its return to default home screen, same goes for the end

I can't help you there because mines 32B haha, but IF someone wants to dare and have some lucky and do it then cool haha
I'm already on the ramhack for 32B so no need haha

EDIT: btw you might want to put in the op that you might be able to use the superwipe.zip to flash everything off the entire phone then do the normal wipe twice then flash rom, flash gapps and done haha
