Hey Everyone,

I need some help and you guys are just the people to do it. As you all know Autism Awareness is something very near and dear to my heart. In my never ending quest (in my newly discovered free time) to help spread awareness I listed my blog on a site called Picket Fence Blogs. VERY popular site. I need votes to keep me towards the top of the list. There aren't many Autism related blogs listed here and the more votes I get the more people will read my story and the more Autism Awareness is spread.

All you have to do is click this link. http://picketfenceblogs.com/vote/3616
When you click it you are voting for my Lost and Tired blog. It will tell you that you just voted for me. You can vote once a day. You can also vote from your vote as well (as it's a different IP address). Please feel free to share the link as you see fit. I don't get anything for ranking on this site accept sharing my story with more people.

Welcome to the midNIGHT ROM Thread (For Official Froyo)

Announcements

UPDATE: Going forward I need to move to making all announcements for midNIGHT ROM via Twitter. This will allow me to streamline everything and make it much less complicated for me. Follow my on Twitter.

If you guys like the midNIGHT ROM you can vote for it here.


I want to THANK everyone for their support and patience while I put this together...

===========================================================================================================================================
I NEED YOUR HELP:
While you are waiting for the ROM to download please read and share the following two posts:

You ask why we need Autism Awareness?

My Broken Heart: The "bare handed man": This is EXACTLY why we NEED Autism Awareness.

The Future, Fear and Autism: This is why I fear the future and how YOU can HELP.
===========================================================================================================================================
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

In a nutshell: Journaling ON is safer but slightly slower as it writes more.
Journaling OFF is slightly faster as there are fewer writes but you do run the risk of data loss or corruption if power loss occurs.

I personally use Journaling OFF....

=========

Instructions: READ, READ,READ and READ some more
Note: If you are already rooted and then skip to step 6.
I personally recommended that you wipe EVERYTHING x3 for your first flash and if you are coming from a different ROM or EB13. That will give the most stable results..
If you experience FC's after booting up then wipe everything x3 and reflash. The FC's ARE NOT A BUG. More a side effect of switching ROM without starting clean.
1) Make sure you are Rooted with NEW CW3.0.0.6 OneClick by Dameon (If not already)
2) This WILL flash the EC05 modem over DI18 or EB13. No need to use odin.
3) Copy the midNIGHT ROM v5 (BYOR Edition) to your SD card.
4) Delete the current "midNIGHT ROM Extras" folder from your SD Card
5) Boot into CW3 (Let it covert. This will only happen if your on RFS)
6) Flash midNIGHT V5.2 and reboot (THIS WILL NOT WIPE DATA and DOES BACK UP AND RESTORE)
7) The Process WILL TAKE ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO FLASH SO DON'T PANIC. Also you will sit on the Samsung screen for at least a minute.
8) Using Quickboot, boot back into CW3
9) Navigate to the midNIGHT ROM Extras folder and flash individual zips to build you custom ROM. (If you don't have it already links are above)
and/or
10) Navigate to the midNIGHT ROM Extras folder and flash the midNIGHT ROM v5.2 Standard Edition UPGRADE.zip and you will enjoy the "Typical" or "Standard" midNIGHT ROM release..
ALL SUPPORT WILL BE GIVEN AT THE XDA ONLY

What do you get when you flash midNIGHT ROM (BYOR Edition)?
==============
I cleaned out the ROM (removing ALL unnecessary apks and files. When you flash the ROM you will have the following Apps pre-installed.
-----------------
Calendar
Contacts
Task Manager/Hotspot (As they can't safely be removed)
Quickboot (to keep things simple) REMOVABLE
Stock Froyo Launcher (REMOVABLE)
Battery modded Camera (VERY,VERY big Thanks to k0nane)
Titanium Backup (Removable)
Market
-----------------------
If you downlaad and flash
midNIGHT ROM v5.2 Standard Upgrade.zip you will get the following:
------------------------------------------------
AOSP modded Browser (VERY,VERY big Thanks to k0nane)
YouTube
Google Talk
Google Search
Gmail
App Widget Picker
Memo (support the phone app)
Google Voice (Removable)
Clock Package (Google)
Samsung video editor (Removable)
Voice Mail
Voice Search
Voice Dialer
Market
Stock MMS/
Fascinate Email
Maps
Google Apps
Divx
Battery modded Video Player (VERY,VERY big Thanks to k0nane)
Battery modded Music Player (VERY,VERY big Thanks to k0nane)
Gallery
GingerBread Keyboard
Working Swype (Newest Beta)

This is pretty much what I include in my "typical" releases... This should make things quiet simple for EVERYONE. If your an advanced user or just want to take the time to flash one at a time or completely customize your phone then go for it. If you want to just have a "Standard Edition" you can just flash the midNIGHT ROM v5.2 Standard UPGRADE.zip" and you will be good to go. I have tested both versions. Both seem very stable and quick. Hopefully battery life is better since I removed a ton of background apps.

FYI: There is a HOW TO video for installing this ROM along with CW3 on my blog as well. Look on the Android Development page. Please keep in mind that the ROM being flashed in this video is not the v2.7 but the process is the exact same. Also I skipped the wipes prior to flashing to save time.

Quick Question

Now by coming soon does that mean work is already being done or does that mean you expect it to be a not so arduous process?

    Hey guys, here is a thought.
    I too have been reading all the threads, and all kinds of confusion.

    Since I run Midnight, donate, and read about his family, I have been waiting for this post which shows he is working on it - yeah.

    However, since he has his hands full (if you read his blogs) and is doing this on his own time for us, why don't you read, search, and make comments somewhere else. Once he posts his work, this thread will be used. Loading it up with 5 pages of what, how, etc., will only make this longer and less useful to those waiting for info.

    So asking when and how is not going to make it happen any sooner. Sounds like my kids on a car ride - set back, enjoy what you have, read some other results somewhere else and wait patiently for the results to post. And even then, read before popping questions. It makes the threads so much easier, cleaner to use.

    It will happen, you've waited this long, be patient. He is too busy to answer so many of these silly questions.:)

    Update:

    midNIGHT ROM v4.2 is officially in closed beta. Sorry the group is full for now. I wanted to let everyone know what was going on. v4.2 will contain the malware patch, no CIQ fix as well as various other tweaks and updates.

    As always please check the blog frequently for updates and follow me on twitter and facebook.

    Thanks again for your patience and support....
