I have been using OpenDesire HTC Sence version 1.3c since VodaUK did their bloatware patch a few weeks ago. Have absoulty loved the ROM which you (AdamG) designed and has taught me a lot of things including compiling kernel modules (wanted cifs/tun and moddified wifi kernel driver) and using my linux experence/skills to write some init scripts etc so I didnt have to keep manauly loading up the module for underclocking etc.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for developing/compiling the two ROM's and for teaching me a few things indirectly.

I am looking forward to your version 4 without sence which I hear you are in the middle of uploading as we speak. I will be wipping my phone later tonight and trying without sence as I really fancy a change. Plus I can't wait to undervolt etc to get some more power out of my phone.

Again a big thank you for all your time spent developing and designing this ROM. You have done so much awesome work for the community and I hope soon that I will be able to repay some of that back.

Kind Regards,

Hey, Adam: Is it possible to include the following AWSOME function (as known from the Cyanogen Mod):

-> Long press volume buttons to skip songs - Jon Boekenooge

Or is this already included? :eek:

Cant wait for your 4.0 release =)

Wow, would be a nice addition.
Want to know more.

Guys I know this has nothing to do with od but does anyone know if its possible to display the CPU frequency on the status bar, either using setcpu or any other program?

    not bad with all the apps i have running :)
    the idea of this rom is to be stock, standard and clean android. not to have hacks because people like the look of other elements.

    does not contain any user modifications/themes/bloatware
    GPS works fine for me (in GNav and Maps), and I don't use FB
    Hey all,

    Just tried this ROM and I reckon its the best yet. Just wanted to know though, are people noticing reduced battery life? After a days use I'm not quite sure, but it seemed it might have gone down a bit quick.

    Either way I think I'm sticking with this ROM, beautiful work!

    I did notice a drop in battery live. With a previous release I had about 1% per 2 hour drop, now I have just over 1% per hour. Same config as before. Although it might as well be some program running in the background using to much power.

    How to set Autobrightness

    Since some folks requested it, I thought I'd explain what I did:

    The autobrightness settings are under Settings->OpenDesire Settings->User Interface->Automatic Backlight.

    "Light sensor filter" -> Disabled
    Under "Light levels":
    -> Use custom -> Enabled
    -> Screen dim level -> Set to 10
    -> Allow light decrease -> Enabled

    Now for the fun part, the settings under "Edit other levels...":

    (see attachment)

    At the top of that screen is the light level currently being reported by the sensor (the raw one). The light sensor is at the top of the screen underneath the black bezel, just to the left of the HTC logo. Move you hand over it to make the light change and see what readings you get. With my phone, my sensor reports only 7 discreet values. Those values (for me) are 10, 225, 320, 640, 1280, 2600 and 10240.

    So I set the number of levels to 7 and used those values as the "Lower" boundaries. Next, I set the screen brightness I want for each of those levels. I used increments of roughly 45 to give fairly even steps. Notice also that I set "buttons" to 0 for all levels so that the key backlight is always off.

    That's it, in a nutshell.
