This ROM is based on the official HTC Eclair 2.1. Thanks Behnaam for the kernel sources and [email protected] for his repack.

As I am not a Sense fan, interface-wise I've replaced some of the icons, sounds and some other goodies. I have to say that I find it pretty usable, but even so I prefer vanilla. Anyway, I'm sure that some of you will like it ;) . I built this to be more usable than the default 2.1 Sense.


ChocolateEclair 1.0.1 changelog:

- removed chinese widgets
- zipaligned apks for RAM usage optimization
- changed bootanimation(not glowing anymore)

NEW: Full Right-to-left language support thanks to genich1971.

If you're running 1.0, you don't need to wipe!

The next update will come out when HTC release WWE version, so I can add more languages. Sorry if your language isn't available here.

Features:
- stable and fast kernel, pre-overclocked @ 691MHz / 160MHz
- tweaked internal task killer, scheduler and battery life management
- all hardware working
- A2SD - enabled by default if you have an EXT partition on your SDCard
- Launcher PRO
- very fast boot process(~40s)
- included modules(cifs, cryptoloop, loop, tun, ramzswap)
- USB tethering works properly
- compcache (using heyodee's script)
- excellent battery life
- root
- you can change music volume while the device is on sleep mode
- youtube HD


First boot will take a few minutes, don't panic.

I have also included LauncherPRO in case you're not a Sense fan. To enable it, go to Settings > Applications > Manage applications > HTC Sense > Clear defaults. Then press the home button and choose Launcher Pro from the list.


CAUTION: YOU SHOULD USE THE NEW RADIO(63.18.55.06OU_6.35.15.01), BUT THE OLD ONE SEEMS TO WORK FINE TOO.



Additional information/FAQ:

How do I enable Apps2SD?

Apps2SD is enabled automatically if you have an EXT2/3 partition on your SDCard.

Can I use SetCPU or OverclockingWidget?
Yes, you can, but you can't do anything with it because the frequency table only contains three elements. I suggest you leave it as it is.

What's next?
When HTC release the WWE update, I will add more languages... but nothing more. I think this has already reached its highest level of performance.

At the first boot, I can see the Android boot animation but then the screen goes green.
Don't panic, it still does its thing - building dalvik-cache to be more specific. At the next boot it won't do it again.

Well I'm a fan of your vanilla rom, but I am tempted to try this, as your work is very good.

First impressions..

I find it like you said RaduG, more snappier (faster?) then VanillaEclair.

Very nice bootscreen! Everything seems to go very fast.

I don't know if I keep this ROM because I too love vanilla :p

I report back in a day or 2 :)

There's no reason for that to happen. It probably does that because of the high frequency... I'm building a more resonable kernel in a few minutes.
