Okay first of all thanks for all the feedback :)
But please don't forget, that froyo roms are testing only..!

Pays? Where r u to answer our questions?

Great ROM otherwise for me!!

I'm here and a little bit busy atm, but I will be there - always! :D

I really liked the rom but i had to flash another one cause my phone was running hot as hell!
shame, hope this will be fixed soon

Well this was one point I tried to avoid and after doing a lot of testing my phone didn't get much hotter than with 2.1 builds.

I am currently running this rom and I am quite pleased with it, but it has a minor bug: when I launch the camera and set it to video, more precisely to 720p video recording, the camera app gets frozen (not always but most of the times) and when trying to watch recorded movies the sound is working but the video is still.

Please use the latest radio.
(see 1st post)


tried doing that. but still the same probs arises again and now even more probs like phone hanging in video capture, now more apps not able to install!! installed mixzing player, sometimes its widgets shows and sometimes it doesnt even shows in the add widget list???!!!

there is no doubt some serious probs with this rom. Pays... please man do something. We are dieing here for your stable and super awesome froyo rom.

thanks :)

did everything... but still the same probs :(

Pays ROM broke my heart this time :(

Please don't cry :)
I think your wipe wasn't successful or the radio you flashed is not the right one.
Of course this ROM is not as perfect as 2.1 ROMs I never claimed that, but for a Froyo Sense build it should do all the work very well (except of some app installation problems which will be fixed in future froyo development).

I really tried to cook a stable rom so that you all don't have reboots like I saw in some other cases. Reboots are the worst for me as phone user, to see my mobile always locked when taking it out of the pocket and to enter the pin a dozen times a day. ;)


Hello !!

No probs with this Rom and Camera.

Can you make Froyo Standart Lockscreen and rest Sense ?

Sorry for my bad english

Greetz

The lockscreen will be there in future froyo sparta releases :)
You can also check the pure froyo release if you don't need sense:

I love Pays Roms but I'm not convinced that Froyo is ready for a daily driver yet. There are too many basic problems for me - I think we need to wait for the official release before a lot of these issues will get ironed out. :)

Biggest one for me is not being able to install apps from the market. I get it with most Froyo roms - downloads fine and then just 'installation unsuccessful' I'm staying with Pays BS 2.3 until a better base is released. ;)

Yes e.g. Google Skymap is one of these apps.
The only way is to put these files into the data/app folder in the zip and resign the zip. So that it will be flashed onto the phone.
In future development this problem will be fixed, but at this early point it is not easy to fix (yet). But most of the apps should install fine..!


Been using this Rom since it released.have no single issue so far.

-I installed the HTC IME for keyboard.
-i can install all the apps from market.
-install WiFi lock from market to control on the WiFi sleep/awake.
-no problem on video recording/plying even on 720p mode.
-app2sd+ works perfectly.I have around 50mb left after installing 130+ apps.
-internet speed is fast.I can watch all the match from footytube.com(meaning flash is working perfectly).
-livewallpaper working fine.
-battery can last me for a day for medium usage.
-led working as well.I can have custom led color using handcent(blue,amber,pink & green)
-all the fb contact picture synced.
-launcher pro and lockbot pro run smoothly .
-installed the super circle battery and it works perfectly.

I don have any issue stated above.all I did is partition my SD.change the ext 2 to ext 3.wipe everything(besides format SD card).install the Rom & install the app2sd+.then restore all the apps from mybackup pro and that s all.

Many thanks for the great Rom.

This is how it should be when wipe, radio and flash went well!


I have to report two bugs so far:

-No spare parts preinstalled for me..:S
-No abdlock preinstalled as well..WEIRD!

Adblock is not a app in this case, its integrated into the system.
Wipe and then flash. Sparepart is working fine then.


Thats normal, i missed it, too.
Just install htc ime and everything is fine ;-)

If you really like that HTC thing I can include it, love the default one got used to it :D


I did set all apps install to external..
but when I downloaded Facebook for Android from market..
it said install unsuccessful..

I didn't try to install facebook from the market but if its one of the apps who cannot be installed from the market I will include it in order to use it with sense, too. Please confirm.

Once again pays, fantastic job! 1330 on quadrant :D I am very impressed with the speed. Restored the usual apps (so about 40-50) and it still moves quicker than I do :p

Will you post the removed apps as a zip file? Pretty please? :)

Which apps do you miss? :)


Awesome stuff Pays i will flash it tomorrow. You are definitely the best cook for the Desire. So would you say it contains the same apps etc. as your 2.1 ROMs? and it is basically BraveSoul with 2.2?

Thank you very much! But ROMs are always the effort of many different people. Beginning from Paul who rooted our baby!

It is Bravesoul with most of the sense apps, I will remove them when all is very stable and provide a extra package. Also some apps cannot be installed from the market since this is a froyo problem on our Desires. The rest is fine and you can give it a try.

Pay
could you please deodex your ROM :)
So we can use espresso MOD on it.

It will be deodex in future!


same prob for me too. when we long press a contact in people, there is no option to send sms.

more probs here and there, like, unable to load keyboards through spareparts. though it has installed but not able to activate one.

i guess this time Pays ROM has been a work in hurry :eek:

This is one I don't get, I went nearly everywhere and when I hold on a contact there is always the possibility to send a sms?
Which app do you mean, the default contact app? Its working there I can give you a screenshot to prove! :D

At the moment I'm running "Pays Sparta 1.3" Eclair-Rom and I'm using that Roms apps2sd.

I'm asking if it is possible to wipe everything (without the SD of course), flash the Radio as adviced and flash Pays Froyo-Rom, without "loosing" my apps?
So that I don't have to reinstall and re-configure them? :eek:

Thank you very much :)


PS: Pay! Keep up the great work...
Where in Germany do you come from? I'd really like to buy you a cold beer :D

Do a nandroid backup and when all went wrong just restore.

I come from Giessen near Frankfurt.
Yes and I always enjoy our good cold beer here xD


More to come - soon!

Pay, you are the man!

Ok , after a several tests, I find that there is a problem with the sparepart

We could only install apps from market by setting the sparepart -> App2SD -> Internal.

and the apps will be installed to the app2sd+ with this setting.

If we change the setting to App2sd -> External,

Most of the Apps from Market will result in Installation Unsuccessfully.

Secondly, I find the battery life of this rom running out too fast.
I had used your BS 2.1 rom, Leedroid 2.2 Rom and Defrost 2.x rom and I find this one is the fastest one to run out of battery. or May be it is just my perception?

any, a very good rom so far and I think I will stick with your rom for a moment :)

For those having problems installing apps from market and getting install failed. From what I have read, this seems to be a problem with apps that have been updated ready for Froyo "Apps to SD" and the resulting conflict with legacy A2SD on most of our roms.

The easiest work around is to install these apps to your phone memory and this can be achieved by unmounting your SD (settings / SD & Phone settings / Unmount SD card), install the apps you want from the market and then remounting the SD afterwards.

The resulting install will be to your phones memory but at least the app will install and all we need to do is either wait for a fix in Froyo or a modified A2SD implementation that caters for this situation.

2nd Gmail account not pushing emails

Ok...so i've set up everything and all is working fine except for Gmail.

My default Gmail account (1st account) is working fine. When there is a new email, that email is pushed to my device. It's suppose to be like that :)

The problem is, my second & third Gmail account is not getting this push function. Can somebody please confirm this issue and is there a work around? I need emails to be pushed to my device for all my Gmail account.

Appreciate some feedback.

Did a full wipe before and latest radio update before installing. ROM works very well so far, with this issues for me:
- Handcent no LED signal (doesnt matter which color)
- Gmail no LED signal

(missed call and charging led are working fine though)

!

Your rom was really the only one with no problems, but working at 36-38C when idle and 38-over 40C when browsing was an issue for me..

I know that adblock is not an app, but there were ads everywere,thats why i told you it doesnt work..
As for spareparts, it wasnt showing in app drawer, but i found it in the rom zip and installed the apk normally.

So maybe there is an issue with clockwork recovery 2.5.0.1 that i use?im full wiping every single time, but always having issues, maybe it doesnt work so great after all? Im suspicious about how good is clockwork's dalvik cache wipe and sd ext wipe.

Care to post the adblock app??

I use AMDesireRecovery for the wiping and partitioning of SD Card. Works great :)

    There's no way my phone would survive more than 15 hours, like almost a work day.. what's wrong? I've wiped battery stats etc!

    Sent from my HTC Desire using XDA App

    the battery life is super!!! 48 hours!!!

    Thank you for the response :). In the end I did things very differently.

    1: I did not want to risk changing recovery option. Not to sure on how to do it so I persevered. Funny thin though when I apply the clockwork update.zip it tells me that this process cannot be undone and flashes clockwork to 2.5.0.7 yet when I reboot the phone it goes back to version 2.5.0.1 :confused:.

    2: Dont own either app and dont have money to buy the apps right now so I needed a cheaper (free) solution which I found :). More on this later.

    3: Does not work, even deleting the update zip and leaving my nandroids in place still gets me no where.

    How I fixed my partition problem was download the gparted live cd, boot off of that and partition the new SD card that way. I did fail a couple of times until Google pointed me in the direction that the FAT32 partition goes first then the EXT partition once it was done this way it worked first time. Then I saw Pays release regarding his HD ROM and saw I needed to update EXT to 1GB and I used gparted to do that as well :).

    Thanks for your reply, really do appreciate it :).
    no problem.

    OH, and btw, unrevoked can change your recovery to amon-ra, you just set a custom recovery :)
