Redux is a custom ROM, built with three key aspects in mind: Clean, fast, stable.

Features:
This second version focuses on users' needs and experience; it tries to bring useful features to our phones that have a place in our day-to-day usage models. Current implemented features are as follows:
  • FM radio support;
  • Built-in FTP server functionality, so there's no need for a cable when transferring files;
  • Multitasking panel, with quick access to common settings and multimedia controls.

Smaller additions include:
  • Trackball wake
  • Lockscreen music controls
  • Playback control via the volume keys
  • Killing the foreground application by long-pressing BACK
  • LED notifications improvements
  • Option to turn overscroll glow off
  • Supports small /cache partitions
  • LITE build supports small /system partitions (as small as 75MB with the LITE build)

Source code:
The source code isn't yet available, though I will release it at some point in the future, after it gets settled.

Requirements:
  • Amon-RA or ClockworkMod recovery to flash the image

Installation:
Flash the .zip file from recovery. If coming from another ROM, erase /data and /cache partitions.

Download:
Redux2-31.08-TEST.zip (md5: a27c14e6dd0fb90e8c54ef1c392e198b)

Experimental versions: (These are not supported in any way, and you may not find any use for them)
Redux2-31.08-lite-TEST.zip (md5: 84fd58305dab7e9c3a17f69093e4bcd3) -- This is a stock Redux build with LiveWallpapers, Gmail, Maps, Talk and Email removed. It uses only 75MB of storage.

Credits:
  • CyanogenMod team for their work on enhancing Android;
  • All you out there testing and providing feedback!

Current builds use _thalamus' kernel. Sources are available at Github

Read the FAQ below to learn how you can involve in the Redux project.

FAQ:

Q: I've installed it, what now?
A: Enjoy your Desire. Redux comes fully equipped and most usual tasks can be accomplished with the stock apps and settings. Google applications such as Gmail, Maps or Youtube are included as well.

Q: Is this compatible with Oxygen's HBOOT r1 partitioning scheme?
A: Only the LITE builds.

Q: Is this compatible with Oxygen's HBOOT r2 partitioning scheme?
A: Yes, all builds.

Q: I thought this ROM had A2SD. Why isn't there enough space on my phone?
A: Apps are being moved to the ext partition on the card but dalvik-cache is eating up a lot of space. If you can't live with this, download the 'apps_dalvik2ext' script from the add-ons section in the first post. Flash that like a regular update .zip (warning: the .zip isn't signed) and you should have more space on your /data partition.

Q: What about these test builds?
A: These are perfectly stable for daily-use but bugs may appear from time to time since the development speed is quite high. Also, more features are planned for the final versions so there's no need to name things as "final" for no reason. What's the rush?

Q: Will this feature be included in the next release? Please!
A: Having many features is far from this project's purpose. I am going to focus on adding only useful features and ignore stuff like "dude, but I want to have glowing stars on my display!". If you think you have something in mind, you're more than welcome to share your thoughts in this thread and I'll consider it.

Q: What can I do to help? Can I join the team?
A: You can improve Redux at any time, mainly with translations. A guide will be posted in the near future.

Q: Where's the donate button?
A: Look in my signature. Donations are welcome in a humble way; I am not developing this ROM for your money, but for my own pleasure. It started out as a personal project but it has grown on me and I continue to develop Redux even if I no longer have an HTC Desire.

This is not the final version, and as such the feature list will grow in time. I just considered it's better to move the discussion about Redux2 in a separate thread, and leave the old one free for anyone who still uses Redux 1.2 and encounters an issue, needs advice, etc.

I was just testing Cm 7.1 and found to be quite good. But very bloated with features here and there (not to mention bad battery). But i did find a couple of upsides to it.

Music app looked much nicer. Maybe you could theme original, or some how incorporate cm's one. I tried replacing it by pushing cm's to system/app but it didn't work.
The Dsp manager is a neat app too. But then again we can all just push it if we want to ;) all in all great rom!

I had just perfected my customization for test build2 mentioned in 1.2 page and you release this new build.

Why did you make it so tempting ?
Now I'll have to fight the urge to reflash it Today itself.
Damm it !!

Wish you had released on a Friday/ Saturday.

Jokes apart , thanks for this release.
Surely it will be nice. Will try to test it ASAP.

Please post a logcat from when the FC occurs. If you want me to be able to see what's wrong, that is. :)
here it is :)

think it has something to do with the cache partition...

http://paste2.org/p/1602065

Edit: i'll give once more a mounting tip :p
type in a terminal or adb shell:
Code:
su
umount /cache/download
umount /cache
mount /mnt/sdcard /cache

howdy

i'm playing with the latest testbuild. really, really cool thing :)
- one suggestion for the ftp server, could you put the current ip-address in an infobar too?
- one information: i had swiftp installed. but now it disappeared from the app list. saw it's installed as a system app. not a big thing :)

    Look in res/layout/status_bar_tracking.xml. BTW, the new multitasking panel looks great in blue and black, great work!

    L.E.: New builds available in the first post. Changes include displaying the phone's IP in the FTP server notification, a slight revamp of the media controls in the multitasking panel, the comeback of the battery percentage option and lots of small fixes that need no mention.

    New builds are also available in the first post. Changes include:
    • Revamped, configurable homescreen power widget;
    • Customizable multitasking panel;
    • New lockscreen toggle in the multitasking panel;
    • CPU settings make their comeback.

    You can find the ROMs in the usual place. Happy flashing! :)

    L.E.: Whoever downloaded the ROM before this post was edited, please redownload. There was a mix-up (lite build tagged as regular one and viceversa).

    New builds uploaded with working Market application, be sure to check those md5 sums. :)


    I know, right? With those quick toggles it's even more awesome!
