    I don't blame him, and for those who care - I figured I would keep you in the loop.
    Peter Alfonso

    I have supported Pete for some time now (and Fab ;) ) because the work is top notch. I have tried MANY ROMs and I always come back to a Pete based ROM. I admire his pioneering, especially the scripts because it makes life easier.
    It is sad when people simply don't say "this feature is thanks to Pete" - how hard is that.

    "5/10/10


    Ok, talk is talk but you all need proof, thats the good stuff!

    As well all know Cyanogen/Koush ROM has apps2sd and alot of other features, it accomplishes this feat by calling a bunch of services to run at boot. These services aka scripts are located in a folder (created by cyanogen and only found in his roms) the folder is: /system/etc/init.d In this folder there are various files that run when the phone boots. The reason they run when the phone boots is because it is compiled into the kernel. These services set up the necessary changes to make apps2sd and other things work automatically. In this init.d folder you can find one of Cyanogen's many "Easter Eggs" as he calls them. "Easter Eggs" are little hidden "watermarks" that show users what ROM they are using. For example in this init.d folder there is a file called 00banner it is called banner because it is exactly that, a banner of his name. As you can see he has written his name to display via a terminal at boot. BlackDroid (unknowing of how to make a service run at boot) realized that these files run at boot so he simply removed Cyanogen's "Easter Egg" and replaced it with the contents of my "Pete" script that runs at boot on my ROM, giving users great performance gains. Another thing to ponder, what reason do you think only the kernels that work with cyanogen mod will work on his ROMs? One last thing, someone needs to do some research on cpu scaling. Give me any kernel and I can make it work with my ROM. My reasoning for this post is that I want users to be aware of who really puts in the work.

    Note to Ultimate Droid: I would have never posted this if you gave credit where it is due, its a very simple concept.


    THIS JUST IN VIA MY TWITTER: Remove the stock boot animation that comes in the UD ROM and guess what appears!? Cyanogens boot screen! This is priceless

    Update 5/10/10: BlackDroid's response to copying my work are as follows...


    "Those commands are well known and can be used by anyone that know a sufficient amount about the system"

    If you knew any better you would know that the "performance" cpu governor ignores thresholds and sampling rates, making that useless to include in your copying and pasting into your ROM. So take this comment as advice and remove those two parts next time you copy my work.

    "I use the same kernels as cyanogenmod because the ramdisk in the kernels are a different size than a normal kernel and this needed in order to use the app2sd feature that they have which I have credited to its creator."

    This does not make any sense at all, you can add any feature to any ramdisk, not just Cyanogens; the size has nothing to do with it at all. One day you will learn how to edit a ramdisk rather than copying it. If you would have gave credit from the beginning any dev would have kindly taught you how.


    "In my new rom there are many features from ALL OVER, from many developers all with full credit given including the ones from cyanogenmod. And the fact that he uses MY custom scripts and still TO THIS DAY claims he is the original creator (since he was more well known than me at the time he actually got away with it) as you can see HERE and in may more of his roms. I have not confronted him on the very fact because I think the idea of going after someone for things like these are utterly childish, but I feel I have to since he has backed me into a corner. He actually came to my forum and watched my thread which he did often over at Alldroid and I confronted him there about it because he seemed to be lurking and he actually admitted to stealing them and admitted that he thought it was a good idea. Here is all the proof in the links below so this can end here and now and doesn't have to go any further than this page."


    The only ideas for scripts I ever used from your ROM are the following: rmemail, rmdock, rmmms. And you are right, scripts were a great idea, that's why I chose to take them above and beyond what you had been doing.

    And what many do not know, when BlackDroid first came into the scene of doing "remixes" to ROMs I tried to help him and even welcomed him. At one time he was using Koush's ROM when it was in the beta stage. The pulldown said CDMA rather than Verizon and I gave BlackDroid a step by step on how to fix it to say Verizon. My post immediately got deleted by him for some reason because he took offense that I knew he was using Koush's ROM.


    In the end the good guys always win."

    HAHAHA - no I didn't.
    "Yesterday" was Thursday and 6/10

    Sorry everyone for the mistake.
    We can still talk about it.

    A little Rogerian therapy for us here: So what do you think about this?

    Haha! :D Talk about what...the EVO? (I think the BlackDroid thing has been kicked around enough here :))

    I know that people were trying to raise money to give Pete an incredible so he could make BB for that as well. I don't know where he got an EVO...but if 4G and a 4.3" screen wasn't enough...now they have Bugless Beast! :) I like the EVO, I think it's a good device but I think I'm staying put for awhile.

    VZW knows that I always try for the new every two after about 10 months with a new phone, so I am sticking around for a bit too with the DROID, LOL.

    So the EVO ppl will be getting BB - how does that make you feel?

    If the EVO tickles your fancy, but you love your Droid, alas, there is an answer: Motorola Droid X!

    Pete didn't get a EVO, his buddy has one. And Bugless Beast is AWESOME on it!

    I'm saddened by the Droid 2/X. I was hoping for either a 44 series OMAP or atleast 36 (although it still might be) and a bigger screen. I'm gonna wait and see what becomes of the 2Ghz by end of year claim the Moto guy made.

    Contracts never stop me from getting a new phone! I'm rocking out on Sprint and VZW with my Evo and Droid right now haha. I'm gonna keep them both, sell the Droid when something with a physical kb and better specs comes out on VZW.

    I'm also kinda disappointed in the Droid 2. They're basically putting out the same phone, w/ a slightly better stock processor (that means nothing to the rooted community). If it doesn't have a better camera and CLEARLY better keyboard, what's the point?

    I do disagree on the Droid X, though. As highly touted as the EVO is, it'll be nice to have one that's a sister to our beloved Droids.

    Now, if they could combing the X w/ our current Droid's I'd be a happy camper. In other words, all the specs of the X (if that 8mp is anything like the Incredible's), w/ our current form factor (I thought our Droids were almost too big when I first saw it, the X is just too much) or thinner, and throw in that 2GHz Snapdragon (Motorola To Bring the Superphone of All Superphones This Year? | Android Phone Fans), THEN I'd finally say they put out a phone that makes me want to leave my Droid.

    It's hard to keep up w/. Apparently Droid X was Droid Extreme which was Droid Shadow. Who's on first?

    Did we really need another "ultimatedroid is a scumbag" thread? Seriously... its time to move on with life already.


    For those who are bored, start yet another froyo thread. That's the new "in" thing.

    No offense inssane... you know I still love ya.

    I know you do ;)
    I thought this was brand new as I don't keep up with the Kardashians if you know what I mean.

    I agree with you, so let's talk about the EVO and Droid X, LOL

    I think I will hang on the the DROID after I get a new phone, as I think it is a collectors item. Think about how revolutionary our technology is compared to what IS and was out when the DROID came out.

    A year ago when I still had my G1 I would have never bought a phone without a keyboard and I never thought I would say this, but I rarely use my keyboard with my Droid. The only time I do is when I need the d pad, so I wouldn't consider the Droid 2 an upgrade.

    I wouldn't mind a slightly larger screen, faster processor, and a real headphone jack. I also wish audio out would work over USB so that I only had one cable coming out of my Droid in the car. I still haven't seen much out there that would make me want to switch or upgrade. I also have to keep an eye on what Cyanogen and Koush are rocking so I make sure I can keep my phone loaded with Cyanogen goodness.

    I have been keeping an eye on Dell, I really like the way there phones are looking, but no way would I consider AT&T and not big on custom UI's.
