    Make a nandroid backup of your working setup!

    In summary, you need to have 3G off to use calls. When 3G is on, you cannot make or receive calls.

    Will post screenshots when I get it up and running.

    My Mini Review

    This is a cool proof of concept. The ZeusDroid team had a tough challenge in porting Sense over to the Droid, but there's still a lot of work needed. Without wifi, you're basically stuck without data (unless you can miss all your calls). Also, even though the ROM is overclocked to 950MHz, everything still lags a bit, especially returning to the home screen.

    I barely had any apps loaded, and only a few homescreens filled, and the ROM felt like it was running at 400MHz. I think there are some serious optimizations still necessary. This could be due to the fact that this is a port of a port (Desire ROM ported from N1), and hopefully the Incredible dump will help ZD optimize this ROM.

    For now, I've had my fun, and am going back to plain old 2.1. Still, Sense is really nice and if it isn't working very well on Droid by July, I may be picking up an Incredible with my upgrade :D

    Haha! I've been waiting for this one but don't have the will to screw with another "almost done" ROM. Fab, please keep us posted as to how you are liking this one...I'm looking forward to the screenshots. I'll jump on this one when some of issues are resolved. Good Luck! :)

    This ROM is a bit slow, as everytime I enter an app, the launcher (Rosie) seems to get pushed out of memory, so when I return to home, it has to reload. So bear with me as I update these screenshots, one by one (as they'll take a while).

    it looks really nice but based off your review fab I am going to wait for the incredible port to try this.

    Kinda sucks the amount of work greek, geek and birdman put into this only to have it be unuseable as an everyday rom

    I wouldn't say it sucks. It is the early stage of a work in progress. I am sure there will be better things to come with their hard work paying off...

    What?! The incredible?! I'd keep my Droid over that any day.. That's just me personally.. But I'd wait to see what the Nexus Two is like! That could be something special! ;)

    It seems they are pretty much giving up on this port and moving on to the incredible port.

    All part of the learning experience. Even if they totally abandon this port this port with will be stuff that they learn and will apply along the way. It is all good :)

    I wasn't aware how amazing Sense was. I felt like I was sort of using a whole new OS. The number of apps, and general improvements on the Android UI is astounding, kudos to HTC on that.

    For the rom, mine is blazing fast, I'm having the homescreen issues as well. As far as flash, it works...but Hulu doesn't.

    Glad you're enjoying it. Make sure you do a search before you start a new post about a topic. Also, make sure to keep root related topics in the root subforum.

    And another tip, if you do start a post about a new topic, be sure to give some more details (i.e. a link :D).

    well it was too experimental for my day to day, a lot of people are keeping data off and just using wifi, hoping they don't need data here or there. but i need it. so i can't use this yet, did install, have it nandroided as i said i would and when an update pops up, i will go in, update it and come back to it later

    I grabbed it and gave it a whirl, it reminds me of how Sense ROM's ran on the G1 when they first came out. I'm sure over the months that other dev's will grab it and try to optimize it in any way they can. Did they setup linux swap for this? I think that would really help but we would need class 6 sd cards to make it really work well.

    there are some bits of code that you can use adbshell to push in that do the same as swap
