This is the 2.1 Eris OTA(JULY) With Root, A2SD, and Overclocking.
This is for people that like the SENSE UI, and have lots of apps.
I was using PLAINJANE and filled up the internal Memory, so I went about looking for a way to keep the rom and have all my apps.
Presenting PlainJaneT2 V2.0 Screenies attached New Fonts!

Change Log:
Code:
 [B][U]PlainJaneT2 v1.0[/B][/U]-Added A2sd to Original PlainJane from Jcase.
[U][B]PlainJaneT2 v1.1-1.4[/B][/U]-Various Deodexed Versions of
the Rom that never were made public.
[U][B]PlaingJaneT2 v2.0[/B][/U]
-Based on JULY OTA
- Fully Deodexed without any FC (This was a Killer to figure out...)
- Added the Newest A2sd Preview 4
-Added Scripts to rom to enable ext mounting on linux
systems, get cpu Info, make system folder rw, and the ability to
zipalign all apks.
-Added Modified boot screen.
-Changed Default Fonts.
-Made it all stock (some People were asking to leave the apps untouched.
^^(I made a flash zip you can you use to get rid of the all BloatWaredelete)
Remember to BACKUP your sdcard before doing the step below!!!.
Things you need to know and do.
How to set up your sd card for a2sd:

Code:
1. Boot into recovery
2. Scroll down to PARTITION SDCARD
3.Click On PARTITION SD
4.Click trackball to confirm
5.Select Swap size 32mb is fine 
6.Select ext size (I did 768mb you don't have to make it that big)
7.Click again to partition sd card.
8.Go to PARTITION SD menu and choose SD:ext2 to ext3
This New A2sd Makes it so when you go to the data/app folder, it actually takes you to the /system/sd/app folder. So when you use Root Explorer to look at the data/app folder you are actually looking at the /system/sd/app folder.
You know you are in the /system/sd/app folder in root Explorer because at the very top it says something like this "92.88MB used 593.51MB free" as we all know the Eris doesn't have that much space in the data/app folder. The space in the data/app folder might still be going down because the cache isn't moved to the sd card by default, if you want to change this you can change it yourself.

For a2sd help:
Code:
adb shell
su
a2sd help
Use of scripts:
Code:
Go into terminal emulator or adb and run these scripts
-"sys -rw" Will Make system Read and Write
-"sys -ro "Will Make system Read Only"
-"usb -e" Will mount Sdcards Partitions" On linux 
systems will mount the EXT partition. Sorry windows people.
"usb -d" Will unmount the sdcard Partitions..
-"cpuinfo" Will give you the OverClock settings,
 giving you the max, min, and what you have it set to.
-"zipalign_apks" Does just that zipalign all apks.
To change the over clocking settings Download Setcpu from this thread Here
Remember to Wipe Factory/cache Before flashing this rom.

I hope this helps someone, I Had a hard time getting a2sd to work because there isn't that much documentation on how to enable the boot.img for a2sd, now people don't have to go through what i did to get a2sd on 2.1 stock rom.And Jcase Gave me his ok.(In case you were wondering)

your freakin kidding me!
this is what ive been working on...well mine has a little tiny bit more but still...haha im actually like halfway through the upload
Code:
[SIZE="7"]Smash_Rom_0.8.1[/SIZE]

[B]Ill be releasing another AOSP non-Cyanogen Rom similar to this within a week or so.
[/B]
This is a rom for all those people who want to stick close to stock, but want all the perks of rooting.

This has been a while in coming, the Linux Kitchen is actually the child of this project :P


[SIZE="5"]Features[/SIZE]
-Plain Jane Based (Jcase)
-Overclock to 864Mhz (Zanfurs Kernel)
-Apps2SD (Tkirton)
-Espresso Rosie
-Wifi Tether
-Completly De-odexed (Andrizoid's Linux Kitchen ;))
   -Metamorph Themes Work!
-Spare Parts Included
-HTC_IME from XDA with Voice to Text!
-

[SIZE="5"]Notes[/SIZE]

[SIZE="4"]General[/SIZE]
This rom is heavy, just over 100MB. You have to realize though that this is not an AOSP or even SLIGHTLY Vanilla rom, its completly stock based.
The fact that its Sense based is also going to have some effect on battery life. Don't expect to come from White Widow and see the same kind of battery life.
This rom also takes a HELL of a long time on first boot. Thats because of the de-odexed files.

[SIZE="4"]Installation[/SIZE]
Wipe data/dalvik and flash like normal from recovery.
If you experience FC's on the first boot, you may need to wipe your SD-ext. This can be done from the Recovery Menu under the "wipe" sub-section.

[SIZE="4"]Partition-ing [/SIZE]
-Make a backup of everything on your SD card.
-From the recovery menu choose Partition sdcard.
-Choose Partition SD
-Select the defaults for all the sizes.
-Choose SD:ext2 to ext3
-Copy back all of your files.

[SIZE="5"]Bugs[/SIZE]
-None...This rom just works.

[SIZE="5"]Thanks[/SIZE]
-Tkirton for his Apps2SD and for being in general an awesome guy.
-Jcase for his Plain Jane Base.
-Zanfur for his kernel. 

[SIZE="5"]Screenshots[/SIZE]!
[SIZE="4"]Remember this is Stock based so theres not going to be many graphical tweaks other than the Espresso Launcher[/SIZE]

mine is simple though, its just for people that like the simplicity of Plain Jane but filled their internal memory.
I Really wasn't trying to step on anyone toes, my bad.
This is so people have to waste their time, like me, getting a2sd to work on plain jane like i did.

oh your not stepping on toes.
if anyones stepping on toes here its me releasing smash right after this.
i was kinda worried to release mine-i actually PM'ed you hoping we could work something out without either one of us getting pissed at the other :p

if you have no problem with it though ill release it once the upload finishes.
haha i just think its ironic that i kept this a secret and you were working on the same thing-i was in no way accusing you of stealing or any of that BS.

best of luck to you, feel free to hit me up anytime. id be glad to help you out with this or any other project you plan on starting.

I tried flashing this rom and I boot looped. I wiped the phone like always after doing a nan back up.

Mmm send me a pm and I'll try to help you out. Did you partition your sd card? That's the only thing I can think that will cause a boot loop.

Quick question about a2sd: Say you flash to another ROM that also uses a2sd. Do you have to delete any app data on the sd or does the new ROM overwrite it, or neither? LOL. Thanks for this ROM! just flashed and will let you know if there are any issues.

One random reboot. Used my phone for a sec, set it down, looked over and heard the vibrate and it was rebooting.

I have been using this rom for a while now and havent had reboots, If you didn't wipe the EXT partition its probably what caused it because most rom's are using the old version of a2sd and not the new one and it might be causing reboots.
If it reboots again let me know so i can see what's causing it.

Had another reboot. Before I flashed, I setup my storage card exactly as your instructions said. Only thing is, how do you know if the apps are being installed on the sd? If I go to data/ there is no app folder but there is in sd/data. Also I read on the darktremor thread about davlik cache decreasing and that can also be moved to storage card. Not sure how to do that though. I know it's not your ROM. Maybe I should try completely wiping and partitioning the card again?

edit: Removed sd card from device and installed apps lose icons and FC. So I guess they are installed to sd. Only thing is the phone rebooted when I reinserted the sd card. Suggestions? Thanks for your help man!!

edit: Oh man it's actually an endless reboot. What to do....

edit: Did a battery pull while it was looping and it booted up fine. No clue whats going on. I'll let you know if it reboots again. Oh man also, after the successful boot, my cd card seems corrupted. In astro, every item is just lines and square with file type "2". I'm going to wipe, repartition and try again.... wish me luck!!

Yeah its bad to pull sdcard while the phone is on because thats where all your apps are installed on, if you pull card your phone will look for the apps but wont find them thus causing the fc's
I would do a clean flash and wipe because it sounds like you messed up your sdcard when you pulled it. I've been running this rom for about a week and haven't had a reboot or anything like that.
Make sure you backup your sdcard if you don't want to loose any of your pictures and stuff.
EDIT: make sure you do a ext wipe also.

Hey t2noob! Well I think I have it this time. I was worried that somehow my sd card was trashed. I was trying to wipe the ext and recovery was giving me an error saying that it was unable to wipe. I had to wipe it using ADB. I completely wiped like 3 times, repartitioned, flashed, and everything seems to be ok. I'm thinking my sd card is possibly on it's way out. Also, I'm hesitant to try putting the Davlik cache on the card. I'll check back in tomorrow if there are any issues. Everything else seems fine though. Do you know of anyway to check and see if there is an issue with the sd card or do they just crap out when their time is up?
