Thanks for this.

What does insecure boot mean? Can I flash this in RA-recovery?

What tweaks did you make to the internal task killer?

I made treaks to the internal taskkiller based on the values from this post here. I also added a blackbar version, link is in the first post. Again this is something I made for myself but thought others may find it useful.

Thanks for the mirror. Is there a problem with busybox? I don't use apps that need busybox except titanium and it works fine for me.

no no problem

its just that most ROMs link busybox with its subcommands:
symlink /system/bin/wget -> busybox

then you don't have to put "busybox wget" but "wget"

btw, what version of busybox is it? answer is BusyBox v1.16.0 (2010-01-29 22:31:34 CET)

Thanks for that. I wasn't aware of the need to symlink. Also my busybox is a bit out of date. The latest is 1.16.2 right?

    Here's a modified ROM based on AOSP I've been using for a few days without any problems. I've been using the built-in sip calling to make free calls through my cellular data and it's great for saving minutes. Give it a try and let me know how it works.

    Removed Google Reader.

    Wanted to give a special thanks to ardatdat for his modded PureGinger kernel.

    Known issue. High quality video not working.

    I've attached two files as a work around. One enable HQ video but disables the camcorder and the other enable the camcorder but messes up HQ video. Choose your poison.

    Gingerbread (GRH78C)

    Here's a modified ROM based on CM7 frameworks, kernel & drivers and AOSP. What this means is that everything is 100% working. FM radio, HQ video, Youtube and Camera/camcorder. Unfortunately I had a problem when updating the frameworks due to a bug and it broke Arabic support. The developer of the Arabic support files doesn't have the his files open sourced so I couldn't get it work.

    The update notification from Google is so annoying, does anyone know how to turn it off permanently?

    To avoid getting the annoying system update message you can do the following...
    (requires root)

    Use your favorite file editor (I use root explorer) to navigate to /system.
    Ensure you have read/write access.
    Open up build.prop in a text editor.
    Change line 30 where it says "ro.build.description=<whatever it currently says>"
    Change it to "ro.build.description=passion-user 2.2.2 FRG83G 91102 release-keys"
    Change line 31 where it says "ro.build.fingerprint=<whatever it currently says>"
    Change it to "ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion/mahimahi:2.2.2/FRG83G/91102:user/release-keys"
    Save.
    Reboot.

    I believe that part should stop you from getting the update. If you have already gotten it, you may have to navigate to /cache and delete the OTA zip file. I had to go one step more and allow the OTA to try to install and fail. Perhaps this is because I am still running FRG83 (non D).

    You could also use ADB to pull the file from the phone, edit it on your workstation, and then push it back and do deletions as well.

    As always, I recommend a Nandroid before you do this.

    Sorry I haven't been around. I no longer use the nexus one due to me switching carriers. However, since I still have the nexus tucked away I'll update to 2.3.4 for you guys. I'll start working on it Monday since I'll be busy this weekend. Sorry for the inconvenience.
