    Dead Thread - Check out http://androidforums.com/droid-roms...oyo-2-2-1-fast-stable-great-battery-life.html

    We'll call this version 9.2 - It's based on Froyo 2.2.1, built from source!

    Download link: sg92-update.zip

    UPDATE.ZIP File. See instructions below.

    v9 - Changelog from 8.x
    Froyo 2.2.1 built from AOSP Source. Newest release of froyo straight from Google!

    Added Reboot option to the power menu

    Installation file is in update.zip format; compatible with both SPRecovery & Clockworkmod. Installation is also much simpler now.


    I've pretty much ported the smoked glass theme we all have come to know and love and packaged it into a pretty awesome Froyo 2.2.1 Based ROM. This is an update to my original posting found here: http://androidforums.com/droid-roms/180419-rom-charity-smoked-glass-themed-rom-frg22d-v8-0-built-source-hot.html


    I don't think asking for personal donations is in line with the ideas behind open source software. Thus, I have decided to collect donation money for charity.

    Please Donate, read below...

    ALL (100%) of the money will go to NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION: Oil Disaster Recovery. I will be fully transparent in this process and will show any donors proof of the organization's receipt. I know this is a new idea, I hope it catches on. Please check out the organization at:

    Help Our Gulf Parks

    Send donations directly by clicking the link above, or PM me for my PayPal address.

    So far I have gotten excellent feedback on the ROM.

    Removed Twitter (Download from market)
    I removed Visual Voicemail & Amazon MP3 from /system/apps.
    In this release, I decided to leave Email & Car Home 2.2. If you want to remove it (or any other /system application) use Titanium Backup - free in market.
    Wired/Wireless Tether Tested & Working (no longer included)
    I highly recommend using Launcher Pro, It's free in the market. Much smoother than the stock Launcher....


    Download link: sg92-update.zip

    Instructions...

    Backing up...
    Google saves your contacts, programs, settings, and bookmarks on the cloud.
    You can double-back up program with Titanium backup, which will also backup application settings
    You can back up text messages with a market app called "SMS Backup & Restore".

    File is in the UPDATE.ZIP format.

    Clockworkmod
    Place the file you downloaded anywhere on the SD Card. Easiest place would be the root directory.
    Chose "Install zip from sdcard" from the main menu
    Select "Chose zip from sdcard"
    Browse to the file (SG9-update.zip) and select it. Confirm the install, let it do it's magic.
    Reboot.

    SPRecovery
    Rename the file you downloaded to update.zip and place it in the root of the SD Card.
    Select Install from the main menu
    Select Allow update.zip Installation
    Select Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    Reboot.

    If you are running the most recent version of my ROM, you may not need to wipe data/cache (factory reset). It's never a bad idea though. If you bootloop, that is the reason.

    Here's a few quick screenshots:

    V8 worked really nice for me. May abandon playing with UD1 and mess with this awhile.

    THANKS!

    Just downloaded, and set my phone up with this new ROM. Good work as usual Dan!! Just curious as to why the build number still says FRG22D when it should be FRG83??

    I wrote frg22 in the build.prop file to ensure that the market would not restrict downloads. Basically, I make google think the ROM is a Motorola Droid running Froyo 2.2 stock. I can ensure you it is indeed the latest source - I downloaded yesterday morning!

    Just putting the final tweeks on it. I like the new min battery setting! Any chance you might do something with the battery percentage? I know this was discussed with the other rom but I don't remember if you ever decided you were going to add it or if you chose not to. We'll let you know how it goes after it is up and running.

    Running smooth, fast and cool with 1100 slayer. I like the changes, even better than the last build 5/5. Clean, simple, smooth and fast.

    Yes, I did. And from playing around I figured out how to get back to my backup.

    Why did it hang on the boot like that?

    No, I didn't try that. What all will it remove?? Will I always be able to go back to this backup that I took?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Once you have the back up you can always go back to that. You cannot change a saved rom so it is safe. It is like a written book. You can add to it or change it but you have to save it as something else. If you do not wipe data and cache you will be porting over settings and scrips from your old rom which might be a different build and hence a whole differnt language, which will not work. (hence the boot loop) You must wipe when installing a new rom. (with a few exceptions that don't apply here)

    No, mine runs really cool but it will heat up when you are installing, backing up and setting up. It sounds like you have been running in panic mode :) (I have been there a lot also) After you get it all up and running see how it goes. If you move to launcher pro from the stock launcher remove all your icons from the stock launcher.

    I'm really digging this ROM. I prefer the default lockscreen though. Does anyone know how I can change it back without getting stuck in a boot loop?

    I'm loving the ROM, as I loved v8.0, but for both roms Chrome to Phone has been force closing every time I try to send a link from my computer. I tried clearing data, uninstalling and reinstalling, but it still FCs. Any suggestions?

    What version or Chrome2phone do you have? Make sure you have the newest version from the market and newest plugin for your browser. I have not experienced this issue - has anyone else?

    I have both newest versions. It's the weirdest thing. If I choose launch manually, the website comes through as a notification but Chrome to Phone still FCs, and if I choose launch automatically it doesn't go through at all. Kind of annoying. Especially since no one else has experienced this problem.

    Can you flash sg91 over the sg9 or do you have to wipe?

    EDit: Ran it right over the top, does not seem to be a problem.

    Anyone else have battery life issues??

    Also, Youtube doesn't seem to work for me. It will load the first 20 seconds or so of a video, and just stop. Not sure if that's because Youtube is kind of slow sometimes, or if it was an issue with my phone..

    Battery life seems fine for me. Are you running your youtube in HQ? This will cause choppy as you are depended on your 3g coverage. It should work fine when running through wifi in HQ though. I find some videos will run fine on 3g and HQ but others can be choppy. This is pretty much the same for me with any rom.
