    We'll call this version 6.0 - It's based on FRG22

    Download Link: sg60-update.zip

    UPDATE.ZIP File. See instructions below.

    v6.0 - Changelog from 5.x
    New System Base - FRG22
    Completely Deodexed, Optimized, and Zipaligned.
    New Kernel by ChevyNo1 - 1100Mhz Low Volt
    CPU Temp reporting works (check in setcpu or temp monitor)
    New Facebook Application
    Busybox Installer pre-installed - Keeps busybox up to date
    System-wide sound EQ - very cool !

    Installation file is now 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 FRG01B Based Froyo ROM. This is an update to my original posting found here:
    [ROM] Smoked Glass ----CHARITY---- Themed Rom FRG01B Version 5.0


    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.

    Here's some info on it:
    ChevyNo1's 1100Mhz Low Voltage Kernell (Fast boot time, Improved Battery life, Great performance)
    Based on FRG22, newest available release
    Deodex'd, Zipaligned, & Fully Optimized!
    Fully enabled & working apps2sd
    Root Access w/ SuperUser 2.2 (latest version)
    Busybox Installed & Working, includes installer for updating
    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
    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: sg60-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:

    Since I already have FRG22 any chance of getting just the enhancements and theme as an update?

    Not being demanding, just asking, and if you say no, I'll understand...it's just that I have at least 2 modified files already and I'd hate to have to go back and modify them again....

    The Audio files for adding the equalizer and the build.prop for disabling the stagefright.

    Yeah, I know, I can just re-do those, but I'd still prefer a theme as opposed to a full ROM....

    Equalizer is installed in the ROM
    Stagefright?

    Give it a try. I'll give you my money back guarantee

    ROTFLMFAO - OK, since you have the EQ in there, that is a major plus for me.

    I can always do the build.prop again if I need to. Thanks for the heads up.

    Nice look and feel to it. I like it.

    /me runs off to compare file sizes....

    This update notification is *definitely* different from the one I received earlier this week.

    Heh - I'm off to party, boys and girls!

    Are apps2sd enabled by default or is there something you have to do to enable it?

    Installed SG6.0 using ROM Manager and it seemed to install okay. Checked out a number of programs including Market and all worked fine. Did a backup using ROM Manager and, when it re-booted, went into a boot loop at the M.

    Went to a backup of metiCkOne (FRG22 also) and it's okay.

    Is anyone else having boot loop problems with SG6.0?

    it is enabled, but very few apps mandate that they get installed to the SDCard.

    Check out SDMove from the Market - it will show you the apps you ahve installed that have made specific mention as to whether they will, won't, prefer to, and prefer not to be installed to eh SDCard.

    To move then you have to open the settings page from Settings --> Applications for each app - but this app does all that for you so you can go back and forth picking the apps you want to move over.

    WARNING: Be sure to read and understand this page so that you don't try to move apps that may not offer the ability but that you should not move for whatever reason:

    App Install Location | Android Developers

    Actually, you should probably read the whole page, but for those too lazy, this section is a must read.

    Nope, never boot looped on me at all. Still running it right now, have rebooted my phone numerous times, even performed a backup through ROM manager. Still going.

    OK, I'll make a new thread for this, but...

    the update notification I got was for 2.2 (FRG01B) - again.

    However, the file size is different, the contents are hugely different, and now, instead of patching files on the go, it seems I have on my hands a full frg01B ROM waiting to be installed.

    I am contacting some folks to verify this is, indeed, what I have, and then we might get it out there for folks to use as a substitute for the original (broken) FRG01B update.

    I even read the updater.script file - no patching involved, it formats \system, and then copies the files from the .ZIP directly into \system....

    More on this as I find out.

    Just rooted my phone and installed this, will let you guys know how it works once I get it running and stuff.

    One question, how do I view the temp of my CPU, I did a quick search couldn't find anything, but I didn't think it would be hard, should be fairly common actually to find.

    Its enabled. If you want to install everything to /sdcard enter the following command in terminal emulator

    "su"

    "sh pm setInstallLocation 2"

    Case sensitive
