    I've pretty much ported the smoked glass theme we all have come to know and love and packaged it into a pretty awesome FRG01B Based Froyo ROM. This is an update to my original posting found here:

    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:

    http://www.helpparks.org/

    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.

    Here's some info on it:
    ChevyNo1's 1100Mhz Low Voltage Kenell (Fast boot time, Improved Battery life, Great performance)
    Based on FRG01B, newest available release
    Deodex'd, Zipaligned, & Fully Optimized!
    Fully enabled & working apps2sd
    Root Access w/ SuperUser 2.2 (latest version)
    Busybox Installed & Working, ready to go (latest Version)
    All Ads Blocked! Apps & Browser
    Smoked Glass Widgets (Credit to AdamZ)
    Minimum Brightness Hack
    Higher quality video recording
    HTC Toolbar / Toolbar Icons
    White Clock / All Ongoing Notifications Fixed (Music, Phone, etc)
    Big library of system sounds (All 2.0, 2.1, & 2.2)
    Droid X Ringtones
    Green Progress Bar
    Long WiFi Scan (Battery Saver)
    Ringer Delay Fix
    Slow Market Fix (all apps showing)
    I removed Visual Voicemail, Amazon MP3, & Twitter from /system/apps.
    Includes Chrome2Phone, Wireless Tether, and Wired Tether
    Includes Motoroi File Manager, Notes Widget, Slideshow widget, and World Clock widget
    Includes the latest version of Google Maps (4.4)
    MMS app from CyanogenMod (more customizable, including black background)
    Allows any type of file to be downloaded through stock browser
    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:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/7qqbbr1ss7dhdc2/SG51-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 (SG51-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:

    Its a nandroid backup.
    Assuming you have sprecovery...
    Unzip the file.
    Place the unzipped folder in /sdcard/nandroid
    reboot into recovery
    go to backup/restore
    Advanced restore
    Select the froyogrg01bv50sg folder
    Hit restore

    Its also a good idea to factory reset/wipe data before restoring

    Hope this helps.

    Great work! Running nice and smooth, no hiccups so far, been running it for an hour now. It is running a little hotter then I'm used to, but I'm gonna give it time to settle down over night. Just wondering if other kernels can work with this ROM? Just in case.

    Any froyo kernels will work. My favorite for shear performance is jdlfg's...for a balance of performance and battery Chevy's.

    Thanks dew912, seems like my phone has settled down now and running nice a cool. Couple little things I found not working is the world clock and the alarm clock apk you provided in here. The alarm clock just doesn't install at all for me and I get a force close every time I try to put a world clock widget up. So I uninstalled them and everything is nice and smooth now. The alarm clock from the clock apk works just fine.

    All it says is error restoring system.

    Will this work with clockwork or is it strictly sprecovery?

    SPRecovery. CWM Recovery and SPR are, for the most part, incompatible with each other. If it says SPR you need SPR.

    If you have ROM Manager, then you can flash SPR onto your phone, replacing CWM, and then go forward from there with the instructions.

    One more quick question if you don't mind.

    When I flash to SPRecovery and boot into recovery it still comes up as ClockWorkMod. When I open ROM Manager it says I am running SPRecovery though. Is there some special way I have to get into SPRecovery once flashing the alternate recovery?

    If this is happening, I would advise deleting the recovery first before you reflash it, however you can now use Clockwork to install this ROM.

    I have this rom and it seems to be running fine. I just installed it on a friends phone and hes having all kind of trouble downloading from the market. I installed the market fix and still no dice. He needs setcpu and cant get it because of the market problem.
    Anyone have any recommendations.
