[ROM] - sROM 1.0 - 7/29/2011 - Speed, Style and Functionality

sROM was created to be a fast, reliable and aesthetically appealing.

I started off with a stock Sprint ROM and removed all of the bloatware and made some minor changes under the hood. I am using the picasticks-07 kernel for overclocking. The ROM defaults to a safe 748MHZ but can be pushed as far as 846MHZ. You can use No Fills CPU (included) to return to the stock speed of 600MHZ and still benefit from the improved kernel. Going beyond the default 748MHZ is at your own risk! Additional apps, keyboard, ringtones, alert and alarm notifications have been added. The pre-installed apps can be removed through settings. The ROM defaults to a blank launcher. You can add the included SenseClock via the Widgets menu from the launchers “Add to Home Screen” menu.

See Post #2 for prerequisites, flashing instructions and change log!

Re: [ROM] - sROM 1.0 - 7/29/2011 - Speed, Style and Functionality

I installed this yesterday and it looks pretty slick. More importantly, it seems to run just as smooth as CleanROM. Good job man.

Two things that you might want to consider (and this could be just my personal preference):

1. The numbers on the battery icon are hard to read when 40%-60% full. Maybe another text color would help...or the CleanROM version.

2. The notification drawer when you pull it down is a bit too transparent. It's hard to read SMS messages depending on what's underneath the pulldown drawer.

Those are my only two gripes. The ROM is great otherwise.

Yeah, I can kinda see where you are coming from on the transparencies. Maybe I will go a little more opaque next time.
