Default [ROM]A Froyo Rom 2.2.1

A FroYo Rom


Are you all ready for some Romen? I have been busy in the kitchen all day
cooking some up for you. I made this rom with simplicity in mind. It is just
a base for us to jump from. It is deodexed so this should pave the way for
themes on 2.2.1

The Ingredients:
  • 2.2.1 OTA Based
  • Rooted
  • DeOdexed
  • Zipaligned
  • BASH shell
  • nano command line txt editor
  • Custom Font
  • Custom Boot Animation
  • Heapsize Increased to 32M
  • Bloatware Removed
  • Added Astro, Terminal and SpareParts
  • BUSYBOX!


To flash this ROM you must ALREADY be on 2.2.1 (FROYO)
with a custom recovery. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


The standard warnings apply, flash this at your
own risk, I will not be held responsible for bricked devices or
even unsatisfactory behavior. You probably wont like this
rom until themes and addons come as is is stock with just
a few tweaks


Download
mirror

Installation:
  • Download ROM
  • Place on SDCARD
  • Wipe Data/Cache/Dalvik-Cache
  • Flash

I have a full time job, an active social life, and more android projects on my plate than I know what to do with. That being said I dont plan on doing much updating or support for this rom. This will more than likely be the final release I do plan on releasing some flashable updates in the future. And if there are any bugs I will try to fix them the same way.

I did this mostly so the themers in the community would have a deodexed rom to work with. If you make a theme (either metamorph or update.zip) this should be able to apply to any other rom based off the same 2.2.1 framework (if its deodexed) I do plan on making a theme (porting one anyway remember that luna theme? Its open to port now) in the coming weeks.

I would like to thank Trident, for his updater script and some pointers on avoiding common pitfalls, and the guy that made the Scribble boot animation, its pretty cool, and whoever made the kitchen without it deodexing would be a PITA

FAQ

Can I flash themes or apply metamorphs from 2.1?
No, themes for this rom will need to be made for the 2.2.1 framework, if you apply a 2.1 theme to this rom you will break it.
How often will you update?
Once the rom is good and I have confirmed it to be bug free the updates will slow, I anticipate doing a monthy update.
Why don't I see any scripts in the ROM?
Well. I have come to the conclusion that a rom should be about choice, with this in mind rather than focusing my energy on scripts to make changes to the rom, I will be making as many flashable "mods" and "themes" as I can. Passing the control down to the user.

Guides
Changing your Font
I have verified that the flashable font packs from XDA will work on this ROM with no modification, simply download your desired font, transfer it to your SDCARD and flash in recovery. These fonts found on XDA are not signed, so you will have to turn your signature verification in recovery off to flash them. There is a huge list available to choose from.

I have put a maintenance patch in the 2nd post which will fix the soft reboot issues. I also updated the OP with new files already containing the fix, you wont need to flash the patch unless you downloaded this this morning or yesterday

Great work on this ROM. But, for some reason I can not open Gmail. It just force closes instantly. Other than that, this ROM is great.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, didn't notice as I always use adb push. Working on it, little confusing but shouldn't be long.

So I was busy cooking tonight and was able to fix all the off flavours the ROMen! I have released another maintenance patch in the second post and I will update the main course with these changes tomorrow.

The new taste is accomplished by a moderate dash of missing dependent system files and some more salty permissions. I would have to say it is much better now.

I just saw your post and realized I didn't put it in the maintenance patch. Its called DeskClock and I was thinking it was a widget. Since I still had all my tools open I even made a nice little recovery flashable zip
Clock Flavored

Download Me Here

Flash in recovery don't need to wipe

Anyone care to post any more screen shots? Or does it just look exactly like stock?

^ EDIT.. NVM.. I see the OP got edited.

Has anyone tried both this and the Bryron ROM? Thoughts?

This may sound stupid, but is the main download updated, or do we need to flash that as well as the patches? BTW, savoix, thanks for the work on this and i hope that you get the thanks from others as well.

Flashing anything based on 2.1 framework WILL break this. I partially ported GRZLA's GB4Froyo use that, if you dont like the font check out post 3 on how to flash one of the 200 some odd fonts off xda

I always update the main download, the datestamp will reflect the build I am not using version numbers I am using dates for version control. The latest is 012811

Thanks. I saw that getitnow was working on an OC kernel for 2.2, and my understanding is that the deodexing will make itso that this rom would be compatible with that. Would the Byron bare not be? i'm running that right now and it seems very smooth, but a little slower than vel .4 was as i was able to OC to 768 and be very stable (tried max and it just crashed, lol) so i would really like to OC again.

Byron should be fine with different kernels, they only change the /boot partition.

Savoxis,
Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really enjoying your rom, and the customizations are great! the luna theme looks awesome. Thank you for the work you put into this.

Only one issue I have found. Bluetooth force closes when trying to pair. I don't know if that is an easy fix or not, but it would be great if it was I drive alot.


Other than that, everything else it working flawlessly. Thanks!

Quick question about themes, if I flash a theme and don't like it, can it be removed or go back to the stock theme?

Make a back up first and you can go back to stock anytime.

Edit: the stock theme is posted in the themes section. Just flash that to go back to stock at any point.

I did toss those together pretty quick, Ill check into it tomorrow, Im heading out of town for the day.

Edit: I just checked the nexus package it shouldn't touch /data/app something tricky must have gone down. As for the size I didn't really check that I just saw it was 480x800 and packaged it up. Ill do some more through testing tomorrow.

Okay, so far the ROM feels really snappy.... sort of what it should be, you know. I love that I have my GB look back (thank you so much for de-odexing this) and i am TOTALLY geeking out that i just Chrome to phoned the nexus boot animation DL link!

(correction, it went but the DL won't start. I will just do it the hard way.) Thanks Savoxis great work. and thanks for posting my article on your site!

+++++
Just ran the quadrant scores... not band total stock froyo was getting about 490. This ROM just popped a 1000+

After flashing the stock theme it says to wipe cache and dalvik and after doing so I get stuck at the Verizon screen. I just ended up reflashing the whole rom.

Ok, so it took me a little while but I finally got this to stick. I don't even remember what I did or didn't do to make it happen. I think I'm starting to get dangerous based on my growing yet incomplete, android knowledge. I'm not great at it yet but I'm getting better and that's scary! Oh well, now that the installation is finished, (oh I also added the Gingerbread theme and installed the gingerbread keyboard) I have to say that, yeah, there are some things I miss from running Velocity Roms (scripts, ringtones, pre-installed apps, etc..) but despite that, this is quite a useful, simplistic, and very snappy Rom! Great work! I'm still picking up the pieces from the holidays and the three January birthdays in my family, and I still owe Trident a few Redbulls for the work he's done, so once I get a few nickels to rub together, I'll be happily donating! It's going to be the ones like you and Trident and Death2all110 that will keep this phone in pockets and out of landfills for quite a while longer, so for that, thank you!

Well then why during the flash it says You might want to wipe caches when installation is complete? Says it right there on the phone during flashing.....

I just realized you removed the stock email app.... which i was using to connect an echange server from work. Any ideas for replacement, or substitute?
