DO YOUR RESEARCH AND ASK THE APPROPRIATE QUESTIONS ETC IN THE CORRESPONDING THREADS!!!

First some THANKS. Manup456!!!! Thanks to him we have a great looking ROM and he is always helping out any way he can with the xROM. He is also a great character to work with. Make sure to thank him as well. And the others..Cyanogen, Stericon , Daproy, xDan, Dwang, rogro82, rgv151, cytown and everyone else tweaking the DREAM platform!!!

This is an AOSP 1.5r3 based ROM that I have heavily modified. 1.4 would not be possible without Cyanogen and friends so please make sure to check out his ROM's as well! This is built for DREAM but may work on other devices your milage may vary or you may need a few small changes but I am only supporting DREAM as it's the only HARDWARE I actually own ATM.

Also a BIG thanks to MikeTaylor00 for being extremely helpful to other XDA members, always acting professional and testing numerous settings for everyone! Make sure to thank him too!

If you are reporting a bug about a "force close", you need to post the output of "adb logcat" from the crash or there is nothing I can do for you.

DO NOT RUN ANY OTHER APPS2SD APPLICATIONS ON THIS BUILD. YOU WILL BREAK YOUR SYSTEM. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARY BECAUSE THIS ROM WILL DO A2SD AUTOMATICALLY AND BETTER!

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE FLASHING ANY ROM INCLUDING MINE IT WILL SAVE YOU AND OTHERS TIME AND HEADACHE!!!

DOWNLOADS

{Links Removed} Warez -- See last Post

***INSTALL NOTES***
I'm not going to outline it all as your should already be familiar with "flashing a ROM' If you are not please read the stickies at the top of the Forum.

Please us Cyanogen 1.4 Recovery Image found Here prior to flashing.

App2SD setup requires the two usual partitions FAT32/EXT2/3/4 and can also support a 3rd swap partition with a small modification to the user.conf file in /system/bin/. I have not found this necessary on the AOSP Roms as of yet

See this post for info on formatting SDcards/creating partitions etc Here

To check swap configs sh /system/bin/swap -s

To change swap configs edit user.conf in /system/bin

so you gonna post the link, before the upload is probably finished, hence causing a possible corrupted upload...
respect JAC, and let him post his link when its ready...
SMH !!!!

wow if it wasn't complete developers normally don't post or put it in an area thats not available to the public. Next time you have a problem you can PM me and not be a douche as well

Seriously guys, page one is already spammed to hell...

On a more on topic note:

Very nice work, although I really must ask, besides the pretty awesome theme, what will this build offer that Cyans mod doesn't? Not being rude of course, it's a very nice ROM :)


Thanks JAC :)

if you were lurking and read other threads there was an issue before with people downloading from his server during his upload process that caused some corrupted uploads and downloads...
nothing i typed in my post granted the name calling..
