GENERIC ROOTED ROM BASED ON
OFFICIAL HTC WWE ÉCLAIR 2.1 (RUU)


***ONLY FOR GSM HERO***


Description:


This ROM is as generic as possible but with root access. It's based on the WWE official HTC RUU for Éclair 2.1. Everything besides rooting is completely untouched. The OTA had some files only needed to update the phone through the OTA process which were now removed from the RUU (by HTC, not me). The com.htc.resources.apk file is the only one which is different between the OTA and RUU. I don't know the differences so it's up to you to install this or not but y
ou probably don't need to install this if you are currently using any of the OTA versions.


Features:

  • Official HTC WWE Éclair 2.1 (RUU)
  • Superuser v2.3.5 by ChainsDD
  • Updated to OTA v3.32.405.2
  • Rooted

How to install:
  • Wipe everything:
    • Data
    • Dalvik-cache
    • Battery Stats
    • Rotate Settings
  • Flash ROM via recovery mode.
  • Flash Radio via recovery mode (the phone will reboot twice, do not interrupt the process at any moment).
  • Reboot the system once after the initial boot.
I suggest to always reinstall the radio after flashing any ROM, I've had GPS problems in the past for not doing so. Either flash the one below or the one that suits you/your network better.


Downloads:


Thanks:


  • To every single person around the Android dev scene and to everyone which helped me along the way, directly or indirectly, it's just too many people to remember and name them all.

Disclaimer:

  • I will not be held responsible for any damage to the phone and it's your responsibility to make the necessary backups before flashing this ROM.

GENERIC ROOTED ROM BASED ON
OFFICIAL HTC WWE ÉCLAIR 2.1 (OTA)
+ ADDITIONS


***ONLY FOR GSM HERO***


Description:


This ROM is based on 42turkeys work that you can find on this thread. I'm doing this because I prefer to have a generic and clean ROM and 42turkeys removed some files from his ROM and he's also using an older version of Superuser. I also did a few small improvements that in my point of view, don't take away from being a generic ROM.


Changes to the original
42turkeys ROM:
  • Fixed problem with rooting.
    • Courtesy of Kimera ROM by Exit93.
  • Complete update-script with the usual BusyBox symlinks and a few other things.
    • Taken from MoDaCo Chungwa repack by Paul.
  • Updated BusyBox to v1.15.3 and added Sqlite3 v3.5.9.
  • Replaced older Superuser version with ChainsDD 2.1 version.
  • Added extra locales:
    • en_PT, en_FI, fr_BE, fr_CH, pt_PT, nb_FI, da_FI, sv_FI.
    • Taken from MoDaCo Chungwa repack by Paul.
  • Re-added all apps/files removed by 42turkeys:
    • Maps.apk, PDFViewer.apk, Quickoffice.apk, Stk.apk, Stk.odex, YouTube.apk.
  • Moved some apps/files to DATA instead of SYSTEM:
    • PDFViewer.apk, PDFViewer.odex, QuickOffice.apk, teeter.apk, teeter.odex.
    • The system partition would be full otherwise and the ROM was not successfully installed.
  • Added huge and updated APNs list.
    • Courtesy of TeamVillain ROMs.
  • Added small tweaks to the update-script file.

How to install:
  • Wipe everything:
    • Data
    • Dalvik-cache
    • Battery Stats
    • Rotate Settings
  • Flash ROM via recovery mode.
  • Flash Radio via recovery mode (the phone will reboot twice, do not interrupt the process at any moment).
  • Reboot the system once after the initial boot.
I suggest to always reinstall the radio after flashing any ROM, I've had GPS problems in the past for not doing so. Either flash the one below or the one that suits you/your network better.

Does this have root?
Well, it should...

I have two problems with this rom.

First root don't work. Tried with Autokiller and no superuser pops up when I try to change the values. - Hense the values isn't changed.

second. - Titanium backup dosn't work. It simply wont start...
That's odd, this ROM is based on 42turkeys and I don't see anyone complaining about root on his thread. Rooting wise, I only replaced the old Superuser with the newer, didn't change anything else.

I think root is now fixed, I tested Titanium Backup and Root Explorer, both worked fine.

EDIT: Upload finished...

@Nazgulled you need to update the radio to .14 for orange users.
Will do, but 2 questions:
1) Where did that new version came from? The other one I got from OTA, what about this .14 version? As far as I can tell, Orange users haven't recieved the OTA yet, or am I wrong?
2) Should everyone else also use this "Orange radio" or are they better off using the "old" one?

1) I don't know it just appeared working.
2) Anyone can use it, it works.

I just did another small update to this ROM, adding APNs list, 14 WiFi channels and few small tweaks to the update-script. There's no need to update to this version if you don't care for any of the above.

This is probably the last update to this clean ROM, there's nothing else to do here I believe...

I'll be releasing another ROM (in this thread) with more stuff but nothing too fancy. It will basically be a ROM for me with the stuff I want but I'll release to the public anyway cause someone might be interested. You can still make any suggestions, but I cannot promise you they will be ever added.

Stick to the other ROMs and devs if you're looking for more advanced stuff, my knowledge on the Android scene is somewhat limited for the time being and I don't intend to make anything different from what you can already find on this board.

In short, it will be a ROM customized for my own use.
