This is the old thread for SkyRaider ROMs. For the new ROMs, follow the links provided.

Well, with the release of the leak yesterday, I could not resist. Here is SkyRaider 2.0 based off the leak. This ROM is completely deodexed for your theming pleasure. As far as I know, everything in this ROM functions. To get the full benefit, you must be already running the leaked OTA radio v2. I do not know how this will react with a pre-ota radio. I am leaving 1.9b up for those who still want it. There will be no more updates to it.

Known Bugs with 2.5

Performance Specs for 2.5
Quadrant: 1300-1500

Known Bugs with 1.9
Camera/Camcorder (Camera works with koush's kernel)
Mobile WiFi Hotspot Use new Wireless Tether
No LED Notifications

If anyone runs into a problem not listed above, please let me know

Reported Performance Specs for 1.9
Quadrant: 1100-1450 (Depends on kernel)
MFLOPS: 40-45

What's Included and Working with 2.0
Wireless/USB Tether
Adobe Flash 10.1 Beta (Watch Full Episodes on FOX!!!)
Sense UI News Widget (Yippe!! :rolleyes:)
Sense UI Stock Widget
Genie Widget
Full Screen Weather Animation
Full 2.2 Market (I saw Tikl in there :))
Internal Storage is mounted (yeah!! :D)
Superuser 2.2
Rooted w/ Busybox v1.16.2
App Sharer
Htc Flashlight
Google Maps/Navigation
Google Voice
HTC Videos Application
HTC Mail
HTC FM Radio
HTC Friend Stream
Google 3D Gallery
Lockscreen PIN codes/Passwords/Pattern Lock
Fully De-odexed ROM

1. A full wipe when installing 2.5.2 is not required if you are flashing 2.5.2 Vanilla over 2.2 Vanilla or 2.5.2 Sense over 2.2 Sense. Any other combo requires a full wipe. S-OFF is not required to install these ROMs.
2. The install script has been completely re-written and now uses an update-binary. You should see the nice new banner while installing.
3. Much of the framework for the Vanilla version is now replaced with vanilla colors and icons. There are still some Sense artifacts, but very little.
4. The themes were updated for the new builds and more boot animations were added. The theme for Sense is coming. Working on it has been a slow process.
5. I removed the old Wireless Tether so download and install the newest one from here--> Wireless Tether 2.0.5 pre7
(make sure you rename or delete the android.tether folder on your sd card)
6. If you have problems flashing in recovery, use ROM Manager to install the ROM
7. New ringtones/alerts are built in.
8. To get touch tones to work with automated systems like voicemail, you must disable or change audible touch tones to long (1.9b only)
Menu>Settings>Sound>Audible touch tones

9. Do not use this setting. It does not work atm: Menu>Settings>Wireless & Networks >Mobile networks (1.9b only)
10. If you are having problems installing apps using the Market, make sure you clear the cache
Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>All>Market>Clear cache


This is a full wipe. You can download it from ROM Manager. The fix for the camera is also available through ROM Manager. Just download it and install it afterwards.

Download Me --> SkyRaider1.9b-signed.zip


Download is available in ROM Manager; links are below; read UPDATES first

Download Me --> SkyRaider 2.5.2 Sense
Download Me --> SkyRaider 2.5.2 Vanilla

The leak does have Froyo Apps2sd working. It actually moves these apps to your internal storage and not your sd card. Here is a little trick to allow any application to be moved. Just be careful. Having widgets and other essential programs running from your internal storage may pose a problem if you routinely mount it to your computer.

force all:
adb shell
pm setInstallLocation 2
adb shell
pm setInstallLocation 0

Optical joystick wake script --> ojwake.zip

As always, I am not responsible for all the joy you will have flashing this ROM ... err ...
I mean you messing up your phone flashing this ROM. Do the smart thing and make a nand backup.
You waited this long, you can wait 5 more minutes.

Directions for link:
1. Download the ROM from the link above
2. Place it on your sd card
3. Reboot into recovery
4. Do a nandroid backup
5. Perform a full wipe
6. Select "install zip from sdcard"
7. Select the file and you're on your way to happiness

Directions for ROM Manager:

1. Download ROM from ROM Manager under Ihtfp69
2. When it finishes, select both options (wipe and backup)
3. Rom Manager will reboot and install what you have chosen
4. Profit!

NOTE: The first boot takes a very long time. Just be patient, it will work.

Good job dev! Looking forward to flashing this. Im running cm6 (the first buggy build) and it is awesome, but i want to see what the official froyo will be like. I hate sense, but love froyo, so this is a good option
For me.

Is there any particular reason we couldn't use the Evo kernel and simply repackage it using Koush's any kernel method? I really, really, really! want himem support. I would take that over 2.2, to be honest.
