- Updated Market apps to latest versions and moved to /data/app for easy removal if not needed <--- NEW
- Deodexed
- Updated SuperUser to 3.0.7 <--- NEW
- Added BusyBox
- Added init.d support
- Added Advanced Power Menu (APM)
- Added a new hosts file
- Added the new Market (3.3.11) <--- NEW
- Removed the boot sound
- A few build.prop tweaks

- Stock kernel - 2.6.35.13-g2299e28 [email protected] #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Sep 14 18:36:38 CST 2011

Anyone wanting to use a custom kernel, I recommend the kernel attached to the bottom of this post. It's the stock XE kernel tweaked to run at 1.5GHz on ANY ROM. Thanks to LeeDroid and tinky1 for the work

Other than that it's 100% stock. The Beats wallpaper is not set as default but it is included (the ROM came like that, I've not set it like that). CPU runs at 1.2GHz (1188MHz) - it is NOT 1.5GHz (unless you've used the custom kernel)

This ROM is NOT built for speed - it's not a custom ROM in the same vein as ARHD or InsertCoin. If you want performance, go for them. This ROM is for those who want a stock experience with a few bit tweaked

I recommend the radio from the ROM if you're in the UK BUT I've no idea how it will work with US/other EU handsets.

Radio: 10.58.9035.00U_10.15.9035.02_2 - md5: 722549B642A1374964798CC82100855E

ROM: http://www.multiupload.com/80ZNLYX9UC - md5: 5AB817E84568CF05945079DFC951C152

Kernel: Stock XE Kernel tweaked to run at 1.5GHz on ANY Sensation!! (HUGE thanks to LeeDroid/tinky1 for the work) - md5: E1D833B1F7F4F19DC0F089C86C8B3EA9
(Attached to bottom of this post)

FULL wipe required before use if coming from a different/stock ROM, and I recommend using the Super Wipe script from the Revolution HD thread before flashing this ROM - If you're coming from the previous version of this ROM then just a clear of cache/dalvik cache will do

There is no further support from me, this is just to let people use it. If you can't see something mentioned, it means it's not there. Simple as that

Screenshots (from my current build - not the one to download - but you get the idea!!):



Thanks to:

dsixda (kitchen), mike1986, baadnewz, robocik, LeeDroid and ANYONE who's helped me in anyway. I couldn't have done it without any of you

Stock kernel comes in as 1188MHz (1.2GHz) - found that out earlier today when I first flashed my personal ROM

Maybe they still have the current kernel build with the ROM? It says Test2...Maybe they will be further releases?

The Release RUU has just been released so remaking the ROM based on that, I think the kernel is different but won't know until I've flashed it
