Decided to help out and with the ok from ihtfp69 i wrote up a FAQ page
for everyone who uses Sky Raider Rom 3.3 Final
feel free to add.

zip is 180,304 kb

Sense 3.3 Requires a FULL WIPE
to avoid reboots make sure you have S-Off, Upgrade the radio to the OTA version
Wipe everything:
Factory Reset
Data Cache
Dalvik Cache
then apply SR 3.3

The initial boot animation is only there for the first boot and reverts to the original thereafter.

The fix for Rom Manager for fix permissions requires you to open Rom Manager once and then it will work after a reboot




Q: How to flash the ROM?
A:good info here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=709220



Q: Since 3.3 requires a full wipe, due to all the changes, I was wondering if the MM mappings for the rosie launcher are still compatible with this new release.
A: All of the mappings are new so make sure you clear out the old ones and download the new ones.




Q:how to Change your lock screens from adb or terminal shellLock
A: there are 13 different lock screens including the HTC one
You must be on SP1 or higher to use them
Change your lock screens from adb or terminal shell
Type 'tabunlock' or 'rotaryunlock' to get the menu seen below
Please choose from the menu - S-OFF REQUIRED
1) normal
2) normal+menu unlock
3) normal+trackball unlock
4) music buttons
5) music buttons+menu unlock
6) music buttons+trackball unlock
7) restore HTC lock screen
8) get me out of here!
reboot





Q: how do you get a logcat?
A: Run CMD prompt and in while in the root folder sdk/tools/ run the command "adb logcat" copy paste all you see onto pastebin.com and post the link. or download logcat from market

Baseband version 1.00.03.03.06

hi
I am running SkyRaider 3.0 Sense RC3 but I have been unsuccessful in updating the radio. I've tried HBOOT but it doesn't like the image, tried renaming to update.zip, tried running the zip from Recovery.

Please advise.
thanks
Jack

Hello,

I would like to know what is "HTC Mail Mod for EAS Admin Removal". Is this some kind of feature?

I would like to disable the PIN Lock on my phone that is enforced by my companies security policy. I used to use LockPicker on Android 2.1 but that no longer works. Is there another solution for Android 2.2?

Thanks.


Nevermind I found it. You should add this to the FAQ. You just go to settings -> security -> remove admin policy (forgot the actual name since after I removed it, the option is no longer there)

Im having a couple of problems

1) I cant get my Yahoo mail account to set up, I have installed the Mail Mod from ROM manager.

2) I am trying to install an application from the market and i am getting the error saying I dont have enough space to install. I really dont have many apps so i dont think thats accurate. I have cleared the market's cache, data, and restarted the application, problem still persists.

Thanks for the help

Check to see how many saved backups you have. Each backup can be upwards of 300mb's. If you have more than three that could be the problem. Happened to me once before. I got rid of a couple unnecessary backup files and freed up over half a gig of space. Apps from the market installed with no problems again afterward.

Q: How to enable Tab Lock Screen with Sound Controls?
A: You need to remove the HTC lock screen to get to the underlying stock lock screen, get into Recovery, mount system, I go into adb shell to remove
cmd prompt
Code:
c:/sdk/tools>adb shell
~# (showsup) mkdir /system/app.disabled/
~# mv /system/app HtcLockScreen.apk /system/app.disabled/
~# exit

I keep getting stuck in a boot loop... :mad:

Hi I just loaded skyraider 3.3 a couple days ago and tried out the lock screens, and up til now I've had no trouble loading the service packs or the lock screens thru ROM Manager but after activating a lock screen and rebooting thru terminal, I'm now stuck on the boot animation, batt pulls don't work, and I can get to recovery but I don't know what to do from there. Please HELP!!!!

You have to let it sit for a good while... mine took like 5 minutes after changing the lock screen.

Yes i know :(

How about the lockscreen update? I think he asked if there was any interest, i would love it! Basically eliminate the lock screen altogether

There icons that can b changed through metamorph. I made mods to mine with colored icons like bluetooth, car mode, sms, gmail, email. Two kinds of email- basic email app icon r have one made for me for yahoo. So now when I get a email a yahoo icon pops up in my notification. Ask a themer to make you some. Themes and apps has some. I suggest using sysinterwolf cuz he is the man.
