3 Attachment(s)
You may remember me form the TP threads back in the WM 6.xx days. It's been about a year since my last release. I have been working to get a good understanding of Android and it is vastly different then Windows Mobile was/is. I have been messing around with a few roms for a little bit now and they work really well for me and I thought would share with you guys. These ROMS aren't a huge departure but have been customized to fit my needs. They are simple and quick. As I learn more I will be more creative.


Ok the Rom is ready.. First of all this ROM is based off the Quantum ROM 1.4. So a HUGE THANKS go out to Dameon87 over at XDA. He put together a very stable ROM. Click on his name to visit his thread over at XDA.



I have been playing around with this ROM for a while now. I have been trying different things and basically customizing the ROM to fit my needs. I got everything working good so I thought I would share what I have done.
As I said I developing on Android is a big change from WM so I am starting out small. This is a very basic "stock" type ROM.

Here is what the ROM includes:

V1.0.0
Based on the Froyo DK17 leak.
Rooted/Deoxed/Zip-Aligned ect
Theme and AOSP Lockscreen Fixed (menu DOES NOT unlock the phone) Thanks bubby323
Replaced the stock Android keyboard with Multi-touch Droid X keyboard. Thanks (locating)
Re-enabled boot sound
Added "My Files" for convience
All other Sprint apps are gone.
TW Launcher (sort by ABC's)
GPS FIXED. Thanks BThomas22x


v1.0.1 Change log (Screen Shots in 2nd post ) coming soon

Brand new ROM base: Thanks ahmgsk
Removed TouchWiz
Added Launcher Pro
Restored Samsung Calculator (I like the swipe away keyboard)
Removed Multi touch keyboard due to bugs with hardware keyboard (Android is only keyboard) -Swype flashable zip attached
Added voicemail app back
Modified build-prop for protected apps in the market
Restored Sammy lockscreen due to bugs with AOSP lockscreen
Modified Host files (Unblocked Wordpress app)
Some other tweaks and performance adjustments.
Modified framework
Changed default wallpaper



YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OR IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK

Instructions:

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU SCREWING UP YOUR PHONE........

1) odin to the DK17 stock. This will install the DK modem as well as root and clockwork in about 2 minutes. Read about that here. Thanks art3mis-nyc

2) After you odin to "stock" DK17 you need to power off the phone and boot into clockwork.
3) Everyone has a different opinion about this part but this is what I do and it works well for me.
-wipe data 3x, wipe cache x3 then wipe Dalvik x3
-flash .zip from SD card
-wipe data 3x, wipe cache x3 and finally wipe Dalvik x3
4) Boot in the ROM and enjoy.

For those you may have missed it, screenshots are in the 2nd post :)

v1.0.1 midNIGHT Froyo (DK17) v 1.0.1
v1.0.0midNIGHT ROM 1.0.0 (Rapidshare)

UPDATE: I attached a flashable zip to restore the stock theme.
UPDATE: I also attached a flashable zip to restore the Sammy lock screen. After a few days the message bug popped back up again. This bug happens sometimes when yo ave an unread text message. WHen you turn on the phone the Sammy lock screen is there instea of the other one. This zip will completely restore the Sammy lock screen therefore removing the bug.

Alright guys let me know what you think. I also have the same ROM but with the Stock Theme and AOSP lockscreen. Let me know if anyone is interested I can upload it or maybe just try to release a flashable zip.

ptfdmedic 12-02-2010 10:49 PM

Re: midNIGHT ROM v1.0.0 (Froyo DK17)
 
Updated OP with flashable zip to return to stock theme. This still retains the AOSP lockscreen.

This will mark my first public release in about a year. I am finishing up a few things and should have 2 ROM's posted tonight. They will be based on Froyo Leak DK17 and will require the DK17 modem.

This is basically a place holder. Check back tonight.

I'm not going flash Dk17 roms again due to the lag issue I'm experiencing... The DJ29 has been good to me so far... I don't understand how cooks manage to screw up after first Froyo beta release... anyway... for the future would you mind posting screen shots of your work? I think that would help for others...

Re: midNIGHT ROM v1.0.0 (Froyo DK17)
 
Flashed and loaded ok. GPS still won't lock and time on status bar is black on a dark gray bar so it's very hard to make out. Those are the only issues I've noticed after the first 10 minutes are so. I'll use through out the day to check it out. Thanks for your work.

WOW. I'm going to assume you weren't trying to be rude. Secondly the screenshots have been in the 2nd post since before the ROM was uploaded. As far as lag issue goes it is most likely user error due to the fact the lag issue has already been fixed.

You need to follow the directions and odin back to DK17 stock prior to flashing. Make sure you wipe every after you odin and after you flash the rom. Do this x3.

If you have a grey bar and black clock then something didn't go right. Did you follow the direction? I know it can be a pain but it is really important that you follow the instructions.

Your phone should look like the screen shots that were posted in the 2nd post. I would encourage you to try again. As far as GPS goes it has been fixed. I get a lock in a few seconds indoors. Have you tried to use the GPS Status and toolbox? do a search on the market it's a free app and it will show you what you have connected. If your indoors try moving to a window. Did you flash the DK17 radio?

ptfdmedic 12-03-2010 11:24 AM

Will hopefully be uploading v1.0.1 today at some point. Testing now. This will include:

1)Removed the AOSP lockscreen as the new message bug appreared again.
2)Edited the hosts file to fix some blocked apps
3)Increased the UI framerate from 55fps to 60fps. This makes things a bit smoother. I noticed but you may not.

Nothing drastic but some tweaks and performance increases.

Re: midNIGHT ROM v1.0.0 (Froyo DK17)
 
cant stress enough how important it is to read the instructions with the froyo stuff, i have flashed almost every froyo out there and dont have issues like some of you do, i think alot of you guys are restoring apks/data when you shouldnt and carry 2.1 problems over to 2.2 plus lots of 2.1 apps do not currently work on froyo. kills me that some of you think cooking is easy but i would love to see some of you try it.i really haven't seen what op cooks in but theres lots of flashable zip fixes posted for gps and lag that work just fine.

I did indeed follow the directions to a "T". Will do on the GPS tool. I did the DK17 modem. I'll give it a try again. Thanks for the advice and the good work. It's much appreciated.

ACS should be releasing a base rom very soon.

I keep hitting F5..Kinda sucks cause I finally finished my theme for this rom and now DK28 is out and I doubt the theme will work. I will have to give it a try and see what happens....

I will definitely be working on this though....I'll keep you guys posted. Thanks again for the support....
