Default Simply Stunning 5.5 GB - 2.3.5 8/19/2011

[Rom] SS 5.5 GB - 2.3.5 - 8/19/11

I've been soooo slammed (just like the last version!). So I appreciate your patience in waiting for this! I will be creating a new thread for 5.5 bugs - please post issues there, and not here!

Kernels - use the last published set as nothing new yet - Kernels 5/31/11

If you are already running 5.4 and have no issues - you should not have to wipe. BUT you should wipe cache. If you have weird issues - WIPE DATA ALSO. IF YOU ARE RUNNING RZR - you MUST have 2.0.3 or you will bootloop at the 'M'! You may ALSO have this issue with SPR. I know the latest version of RZR and any recent version of CWR should work just fine. If you see virtually no pause after seeing the text 'Installing data files ...', this is the problem. A critical part of the install is not running correctly. Latest version of RZR (2.0.3): [Recovery] RZR SPR-based *update.zips-battery charging-more*


NOTE: If you perform ANY operations in recovery before installing the ROM (ie. wiping) - REBOOT BACK INTO RECOVERY, and THEN install the ROM.


If you get any apps that FC when they never used to before - go into Settings -> Applications -> Manage, choose the trouble app, and clear data/cache. That SHOULD clear it up.


For market issues (thanks spc_hicks09!) - "If they're having issues with Market not restoring apps OR with Market crashing or failing to install apps. Tell them to reboot into recovery, mount USB and then delete the "android_secure" folder on the sdcard. Then wipe, then reflash the ROM"


If scripts (in Tools) are not working - MAKE SURE you have USB Debugging enabled in Settings->Applications->Development!!


And also - big thanks to my testers (in no particular order) who did a great job helping me out: redoregon, spc_hicks09, Sean Livingston, Chris Scarry, Frank Parry, Cyclej, Jared Gunnell - If I missed you, SORRY, please bring it to my attention - my head is spinning right now!

Old links for stock animations and circle battery SHOULD work - although you can now select framework animations right from my toolbox

A quick blurb about what is new (not much, mostly OS update):

2.3.5
Screenshot on powerbutton option (credit CM7)

Sony Ericsson Home Launcher
aLogcat (use this if I ask for a logcat!)
