Presenting FroydVillain 1.1.1, TeamVillain's Froyo ROM (Android 2.2)

FroydVillain 1.1.1 INFO & Release Notes:
IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • REMEMBER the ROM will only be at peak performance after it's been rebooted a couple of times, and when you've opened your apps once prior.
  • adb install won't work on this ROM, until you tick "Unknown Sources" in the Menu > Settings > Applications menu.
    This appears to be a new security feature. Similarly, apps pushed to /data/app won't work either. You might not notice the issue, but the app does not get any of its permissions it should have, meaning that it is probably useless, and might FC constantly or whatever. So remember to tick the Unknown Sources box
  • The stock camera doesn't work properly - it takes photos OK, but it doesn't do live preview. The app "Camera Magic", which is free on the market, works fine, so we recommend that.

RELEASE NOTES:
Fixed in this release:
  • Multi-touch restored to improved touchscreen driver
  • Applied workaround for akmd running at 100% cpu utilisation (Thanks alankila)
  • Fixed GMail app resolution
  • VillainROM Updater now works
  • Compcache enable/disable script fixed (compcache on by default)
  • HTC Sense ringtones added

Issues outstanding:
  • Camera
  • Notification and chargeLEDs
  • Autobrightness (only dims when screen is turned off)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Coming from FroydVillain 1.1.0:
  • Do a wipe of data and dalvik at least.

Coming from any other ROM (Including FroydVillain 1.0.0):
  • Do a Full wipe, preferably including EXT.

DO NOT POST SUPPORT REQUESTS WITHOUT DOING THIS.

Mind making a quick list of the differences over 2.1? and is flash 10.1 planned for the near future? i remember getting it to work (pretty slow mind) with a .apk someone made.

Thanks anyway, great job guys!

Nice. I've been waiting for a fully working froyo port. The camera issue was the last big problem for me. Will probably try this out tomorrow and report back (it's late here in the uk)

Thought that with the official 2.1 out and most ROMs being based on that, I'd thought that that I would stop playing around with new roms for a while...

Well that's gone for a toss now - thanks Villain team - downloading now...

great stuff, worked fine off first boot, coupel more, ran even better ..

one thing ...

the phone, when a call comes in, no slider for pick up/ignore ??
you have to use the phone hard-button to pick up ... how do you ignore call ? aside from turning volume down?

aside from that, camera magic is amazing, much better than stock camera anyways, even supports burst photos... amazing!! ...

but, if an update is made, a slider on the calls coming in woudl be sweet!

love this ROM so far, very snappy, and much better than the ezhero ROM's i've been using ... although, ezhero is 2nd best .. so no offence xenoside ;) ...

i'll defn' donate when incoming calls have slider :)

worth downloading this ROM ... really well done, thanks villainrom.
