The Smoothest running Android Sense 2.1 experience ever with latest rootfs 07/01/2010
 
Hi everybody I am stoked about the new android rootfs-latest.zip found at this website http://xdandroid.southcape.org/rootfs/ and the latest Android Version 2.1 w/ Sense UI View found at this website http://sites.google.com/site/androidport/downloads. ACL suggested a while back that I start an Android Version 2.1 w/ Sense UI thread for him. So I finally found the time to do it. I want to give thanks to XDANDROID Eclair team for rootfs-latest.zip and Matthew Gonzales, Reefermattness, and everybody who contributed in making Android Version 2.1 w/ Sense UI View truly an awesome experience. Please give it a try you won't regret it.

1. Download both files with the hyperlinks above.
2. Copy the Android Version 2.1 w/Sense UI cab on to your sd card.
3. Install the Android Version 2.1 w/ Sense UI View cab. Configure Android to your liking.
4. Unzip the latest rootfs and rename it rootfs and copy it to your touch pro sd card in the andboot file.
5. Rerun the Android icon on your touch pro 2 and your are finished.

Enjoy a smoother Android Version 2.1 w/Sense UI experience. I also recommend when upgrading to do it manually with replacing the rootfs file from the http://xdandroid.southcape.org/rootfs/ website.

The first install could take upto 15 to 20 minutes to install. I have the sprint touch pro 2 does vzw have a sim card this could stop your installation if it is in the phone. Make sure you patiently wait for the installation to finish. Make sure you install the Rhod 500 version this the one for Verizion.

Does this build/setup still have the issues where you cant search the market place or use search option on most browsers and also the issue where you cant set/edit some of the Sense widgets? Those are the main reasons I dont use the sense build. Other then that I enjoy it better then the regular Android builds.

I am reloading my android so I can test out the search feature in the market place and the browser. I will report what I found out shortly.

The web search works but the android market search makes the phone crash everytime.

jamice4u, thanks for putting this up. Ive been meaning to do but i kept forgetting. Im interested to see where mathew gonzales got his build since Klinux and i were the original masterminds of the sense ui formula. I just like to give credit where credit is due and Klinux put alot of hours mixing and matching libs to give everyone the best performance possible. Its not easy when you have a full time job.

More devs are getting involved with 3d, so soon i hope we can have an even smoother sense ui.

I got it from Klinux himself, I was one of his first testers when he made his first build. Would tell him what wasn't working for the Rhod. :P
