This a quick and dirty ROM that I made using the stock android 1.6 kernel. I'm not using cyanogen's 4.1.11.1 kernel. I built this from scratch, so no BFS.

This ROM is completely 1.6 stock (framework, apps, etc) with the exception of the following enhancements:

1. Compcache enabled by default (no backing swap, just straight compcache)
2. Memory hack which gives you 107.5 megs of linux system memory
3. ROM works with both mt3g (32b) and g1 (dream).
4. Root enabled
5. Market should be fully working
6. Busybox
7. Loccy's enhanced Browser v1.5 with MT
8. Netfilter and iptables modules added to the kernel. Wifi tethering works with both "aNetShare" and "android-wifi-tether" apps.
9. Launcher with 5 screens
10. Apps2SD for G1/Dream users [may need to format /system/sd (/dev/block/mmcblk0p2) partition if getting black screen]
11. Work Email App (Exchange Support)
12. userinit.sh support in /sdcard directory
13. All built-in apps optimized with zipalign and optipng


HTC Touch Input Keyboard can be downloaded from here:

v1.11 http://a5-studios.com/dwang/dwang-v1.11.zip [thanks afive720 for hosting]

* Update build.prop to fix google voice issues [thanks cyanogen]
* Kernel tweaks that improve responsiveness- instantly ramp up to max cpu frequency when an input event occurs. [thanks cy again]


v1.10 http://drop.io/kc8uj6z#

* Updated to latest compcache module
* Fixed caller id issue
* Default keyboard vibrate now works


v1.9 http://drop.io/hkelqgt#

* Revert back to 2.6.29 donut kernel to fix camera and camcorder problems
* Add back swap_free_notify to compcache to hopefully fix slowdown issues


v1.8 http://drop.io/kigy6ej#

* Upgrade 2.6.29 kernel to latest version from git repository
* Add back swap_free_notify to compcache to hopefully fix slowdown issues


v1.7 http://drop.io/9jw6wel

* Fix voice search crash


v1.6 http://drop.io/p1knm9f

* Fix a2sd issues for real this time.
* Push VoiceSearch.apk to /system/app to fix voice search problems.


v1.5 http://drop.io/hfrm7de

* Fastest version yet!
* Initial boot may take a while, be patient. If having trouble with apps, may need to wipe
* Optimized Loccy's browser v1.5
* Revert kernel to v1.3. Seems to be faster.
* Optimized all built-in apps with zipalign and optipng
* Fix a2sd issues, hopefully!
* Add busybox symlinks
* Add userinit.sh support. Userinit.sh file should reside in /sdcard since I'm not assuming 2nd partition exists. Compcache won't be disabled
* Add IM app
* Removed ota update files.


v1.4 http://drop.io/cyhgit3#

* Update build.prop files to stop ota update. Still may need to download the update to completely stop it.
* Re-compiled kernel and removed all debugging output. Should speed things up a bit.


v1.3 http://drop.io/vwm3mof#

* Fix G1/Dream hw keyboard layout
* Add libraries needed by e2fsck


v1.2 http://drop.io/bbh13uu#

* Multi-touch support added to kernel/browser.
* Work Email apk added (Exchange Support)
* Compcache size increased to 32mb
* Apps2SD Support for G1/Dream users. Magic users still the same, no a2sd. [may need to format /system/sd (/dev/block/mmcblk0p2) partition if getting black screen]
* Fix G1/Dream Bluetooth issues.


v1.1 http://drop.io/6h4zu9q#

* Can now be flashed using recovery image. No need for fastboot.
* 5 screen launcher.
* Compcache without swap_free_notify. Its faster.
* Iptables binary so android-wifi-tether app now works.
* Set max_cpu speed to 528mhz.


v1.0 http://drop.io/4gtaatn7873#

* Initial release (fastboot only)



If I get a C&D letter, I'm taking it down right away, so download it quickly. :)

Enjoy, I learned a lot during the process of making this ROM.

That's great! Please make it flashable and please NEVER add app2sd, we don't need that.
Did you use the last rom provided by HTC?

I love it! :D

Wifi Tethering works with aNetShare (available on market).

Lets just hope someone can fix HTC_IME3 this weekend so we can get it running on Android 1.6. That's the only thing I'm missing now.

Cool thanks, I've updated the OP with that info.

@dwang: would you be so nice to make it flashable? I am not familiar with fastboot at all. Is it a lot of work for you to make it flashable?

Give the guy a break. He's doing this on his spare time for FREE. When he gets around to making it flash-able he will.

God, some people are not appreciative at all..

Fastboot info (post 4):

Arrogant bastard, I was being extremely polite when asking, I don't see why I would get such aggressive comment like yours. Go to hell

I am just very admirative of this work and eager to try it. It would have been no worries getting a 'NO' answer.

I'll try to get a non-fastboot version up over the weekend. This is my first rom so i'm still in the learning process.

Do I have to hit 'enter' between these two lines in the command prompt?

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img

edit: I get the following after hit 'enter' after the first line
'sending 'boot' <2560 kb>... OKAY
writing 'boot' ... INFOsignature checking....
FAILED <remote: signature verify fail>

What's wrong? Is it because I don't have an engineering SPL?

yeah you need the engineering spl. I don't think the spl that shipped with the magic will work.
