    Hi everyone,

    So I'm on the Modaco custom ROM with Root - what are the things I should try out? I've already got Titanium Backup on there...

    Congratulations on being one of the first tech freak! I have a couple of questions if you don't mind answering them:

    1. Does the Monaco ROM remove touch wizz?

    2. Does it use the stock dialer/ contacts app?

    Thanks in advance!

    The modaco rom is the same as the normal SGS rom, but it includes things like busybox, root, and optimized performance (including market optimization scripts) plus the ability to choose to remove some stock applications (like layar or swype).

    What he said, and no, it doesn't remove TouchWiz.

    Thanks guys, I'm going to do a little reading on the whole rooting and mod scene and see if I can't figure out how I can work towards removing this god-awful contacts app!

    I don't consider the Modaco's Rom to be truly customized, at least not yet. The kernel is still stock, touchwiz is the integral part of the ROM. Of course, the tweaks discovered by Paul was really fabulous, but nevertheless it is still a stock rom to me.

    Hi every one, I have just got my sgs and have a couple of question. When it turned up it was in the original samsung box only bit of orange on it was the 2 for 1 cinema tickets. after unboxing it there is no orange logo on the back or front of the phone. There are only 2 orange apps installed, 1 orange maps, 2 orange contacts backup. what im trying to sort out is if the phone is unbanded, the following is in about phone: Baseband i9000XXJF3, Firmware Version 2.1- update 1, Build Number ECLAIR, Kernal Version 2.6.29 followed by imts_scm@S1-BUILD05 #2. If some one could tell from the above if this a branded or un-branded phone it will help me to decide if and when i need to flash it if at all.
    Thanks to you all.

    I was on orange and that is the firmware that mine shipped with and the orange apps on your phone make it sound branded as they only ship with orange branded phones. there was a dialler number code (*#xxxxx#) that tells you but i cant remember what it was.
