I've been working on a mod of haykuro's Rogers ROM and it turned out decent, so I figured I'd share it. My primary motivation is to maintain a stable build with Exchange support for the G1.

Here's what's in it:

v1:

Kernel and modules from JF 1.51
Root (SuperUser, Term, etc)
Amazon MP3
Voice Search
Meltus Louder Sound profile
Multitouch Browser
Removed Rogers apps
Removed HTC Sync
Paid apps support
ext3 AppsToSD support
dalvikvm from ION

v2:

Everything above plus ...
RIL from ION (should fix the "My Location" issues some users were having)
Upgraded Meltus to v4 (supposedly clearer sound)

v3:

Removed the Multitouch Browser in favor of the default HTC Browser (attached to this post in case you want to add it back)
Removed the Meltus Louder Sound profile
Added Lucid's awesome do everything script

Here's the ROM:

v1: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududev1
v2: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududev2
v3: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududev3 Mirror: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4E8OIOQ4 (thanks robpet2)

Here's the modified JF build environment I used:

v1: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududebuildv1
v2: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududebuildv2
v3: http://drop.io/rogersvirtududebuildv3

I'm including the build environment because I know it's frustrating not having the tools to build things yourself.

Much of this stuff was ripped from ROMs from JF and cyanogen, so thanks to those guys, and of course, thanks haykuro for another awesome port.

Note: Like the original ROM from haykuro, this requires SPL 1.33.2005.

Yeah 1+.
Great stuff virtudude. I'm just updating my phone right now. Will post any issues later.

For future releases, do you know if you can add 5 desktops rather than 3? I know someone has done this here. I am not sure how hard is this or if its even possible.

bluetooth

Can anybody verify if their Bluetooth headset is working with this build? Other than that I Love this one! Id put it a notch above ion. Apps2sd no exchange no Rogers crap lol and no force close on the camera = heaven in a cell phone. Thanx for modding it! I hope its not my headset that's the problem.

I went from JF 1.50 --> 1.51, then to Cyanogen's 3.2 --> 3.3.4, then to ckrest's Rogers R2, and then to Virtududes V1 --> V2 --> and now on V3. This is the best build I've had to date. All of the others were good. I had few to no problems with the JF stuff, then even Cyanogen's experimental 3.3.4 ran great for me, and as good as those were, this is even better. Thanks for the work.

This is good to have your/its own thread.

I went from

1. JF-1.5
2. Rogers - Haykuro
3. Optimized Hero ROM - R1.3
4. Hero (Rosie) - Haykuro Origianl
5. Virtudude's Rogers Mod v3
5. Cyanogen's 3.3.6. (currently running) w/ HTC Hero v1.0 Theme

in a matter of 4 days.

Love Cyanogen's 3.3.6 (speed) but love Rogers V3 (camera). If you could get the speed of cyanogen's build in your Rogers build that would be awesome. :rolleyes:

Great Stuff.

Originally being against the removal of multi-touch browser, I tend to like the HTC more now.

How often would you use two fingers to zoom? I liked the double tap better as it zoomed in and out quite easily.

I think the one on Hero has flash working in it. Is it hard to get that one in without losing the snapiness?

desktop

I actually meant no desktop lol I never used it. I don't use exchange either but I don't mind it. I'm just gonna watch this thread and hope somebody else ha a buetooth headset issue. Id hate 2 leave this build but I use my g1 for music @ work and there's no way I'm goin back to wired headset after bragging about my stereo Bluetooth! Lol


Exchange works perfectly on this build.
Just HTC (desktop) sync was removed.
