Pre-Installed APKs
*** I know this is a lot of apps, but these have all been zipaligned. If you use these apps, they will perform better than market versions. If not, delete them! **

LauncherPro, adbWireless, Adobe Reader, Album Art Grabber, AndroZIP, Angry Birds, AppBrain, Barcode Scanner, Barnacle WiFi Tether, Battery Doctor, CamScanner, City Caller ID, Dialer One, Documents to Go, Dolphin Browser, drocap2, Dropbox, Facebook, Gallery3D, Google Goggles, Google Sky Map, Google TalkBack, Handcent, K-9 Mail, LinkPush, Linpack for Android, Market Enabler, Neocore, Nexus Revamped Live Wallpaper, No Lock, OI File Manager, Pandora, Quadrant Standard, Rage Faces, RWiimote, Shazam, ShootMe, Shopper, Skype, Smart Keyboard Trial, SMS Backup+, SoundHound, Spare Parts, Stumble Upon, SwiFTP, Sysctl Config, Terminal Emulator, Thumb Keyboard, Titanium Backup, Video Player, Vlingo, Voice, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, Wallpaper Set & Save, WiFi Browser Login, Winamp, Work Email, XDA Developers App, Yelp, Zedge

Installation
  1. Download ROM and place on your SD card
  2. Boot into xRecovery
  3. Flash the attached file with xRecovery by using "Install custom zip"
  4. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY ON .435 FIRMWARE: Flash this with Flash Tool.
  5. Reboot and be patient. First boot can take several minutes at the boot animation. This is normal.
  6. On first boot you'll get a "Complete action using..." screen with LauncherPro and the Setup Wizard. You can choose either.
  7. OPTIONAL: Uninstall the Setup Wizard by holding it over the trash can until "Drop to uninstall" appears.
Check out this link after installation for tips on LauncherPro: http://androinica.com/2010/08/23/11-ways-to-get-the-most-out-of-launcherpro/
I recommend at least changing the opening Speeds to 10 (Prefrences > Advanced Settings > Opening speed). That makes the phone feel a lot more responsive.

Q&A

Q: Does this ROM come with app2sd?
A: No. An app2sd version will come, but your SD card will have to be partitioned first. See this thread for more information: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=800555

Q: Is this for X10a or X10i?
A: It will work for either, but your "About phone" page will show X10i (See screen shot above).

Q: What is "zipaligning"?
A: Zipaligning is a way of optimizing an APK's RAM use.

Q: What will happen if I update a zipaligned APK?
A: The update will download and overwrite the zipaligned version.

Q: Does everything work?
A: Yes. That was my intent with this ROM: Provide high performance without loss of functionality. Everything that works in the stock SE ROM (Bluetooth, WiFi, Camera, etc) works in this ROM.

Q: Can you replace LauncherPro with LauncherPro Plus?
A: I can't, but you can. Just enter your product key in preferences. You can also install a different launcher like ADW, but you'll have to use TitaniumBackup or a root uninstaller to remove LauncherPro.


I hope everyone finds this ROM useful. Requests and suggestions are welcomed. If you use this for a theme or as a base for a custom ROM, please let me know. I'd like to see where this winds up. Thanks.

What is this zip aligning? If I flash this and there is an update for any of the above applications, what happens? What if I already have a few paid versions of them too.

Zipaligning is a way to optimize an APKs RAM use. If you update an app, you'll lose this optimization, but I will keep current copies of all APKs in this ROM available. I will also optimize any other APKs requested.

its ok i boot it up i am testing it now i will post my opnion in couple of hours
interesting rom, i`m downloading it, and i`ll give it a try:D

Thanks!

Hey,

I love the ROM as its extremely fast and I can't wait for the you to get themeing. However I can't sync my contacts. Even if I try to force it from the phonebook it quickly crashes and then restarts.

Aside from that everything seems to be working great.

If you have any solutions for the sync please let me know as I'm on the road (I know I'm an idiot for flashing when I had to leave) and don't have any contacts or phone numbers memorized :)

Edit: Also there isn't an account sync option in 'Settings'.

Just spam the sync button in the contacts menu and it should start syncing. At least for me it did.

    Thanks. I'm not really supporting 2.1 ROMs anymore; Since the 2.2 camera fix, they've pretty much gone the way of the dinosaur.

    The latest kX10 build is CM6, check it out here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1055609

    Once that ROM is final, it should be about time to hack up the official SE Gingerbread =)

    This does not come with app2sd. You have to partition your SD card yourself. See this thread for more information: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=800555
