    -Gridlock Custom Kernel
    This uses deadline as the default I/O scheduler, has netfilter support, IP tables, RNDIS/USB gadget support, swap support, and ext3/ext4 support. This cannot be overclocked and is for the few who cannot run an overclock kernel at 600Mhz. Flash this in recovery. You do not need to worry about wiping anything.

    -Android Stock Theme
    Like Android's stock theme better? Flash this in recovery. You do not need to worry about wiping anything. Do not apply over anything other than Velocity stock theme.

    -Baseband Version VS740MVC.5210.1015 (new radio.img)
    Flash this in recovery. You do not need to worry about wiping anything. If you have issues with the Android Market after flashing, boot back into recovery once more and wipe your cache.
    *Only flash once! I cannot be held liable for any damage caused to your device by flashing this!

    So the MVC radio isn't included in the ROM? Do we reflash it if we've flashed it on a prior ROM?

    I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to..

    The Radio is never included in with a rom as it is flashed separate from the rom itself. If you flash a new rom or even restore a backup your radio version should stay the same.

    So if you flashed this radio update previously, there is no need to reflash.

    You left a link to download the MVC baseband in the addons. If we already flashed the MVC on .3, do we need to reflash it on .4?

    Thanks for the clarification, savoxis.

    Love the ASCII art on the install, btw, Trident.

    anyone else having problems with the restore script?? I installed the rom with no problems, then ran the restore script and now it just keeps cycling on the boot screen. idk if its something I did or if its a bug?? The script I ran was the complete restore (restore -c), the restore said it completed then rebooted the phone, and thats when it started cycling on the boot screen. anyone able to tell me if i did something wrong? should I have just done the app restore?? any help is appreciated!

    I'm probably a little over excited about this, but I tried v0.3 and it made my phone lag like crazy. I was running Punisher 0.1, so I'll be giving this one a try and I'll update in the morning. :)

    well, after re-installing the rom and choosing not to run the restore script again, I must say that velocity 0.4 is EXCELLENT!!! I have not reinstalled setcpu and have had no problems with speed or lag. Trident, kudos again to you and all that help with the development of velocity! Definitely cant wait to see whats instore for velocity 0.5!!!

    Very nice ROM - I like all the new scripts. Is there a script you can run to see a list of available scripts/commands? Thanks!

    Only 1 minor criticism - the default wallpaper is UGLY !!! First thing I changed. LOL!

    My home and send keys don't work. I also see there's no power button airplane mode either. Love the ROM otherwise. Though with two defunct buttons and no quick airplane mode I'm going to have to switch to something else.

    Edit: no slide to unlock either...

    Might need to re wipe everything and re-flash. All buttons work fine plus the power button options work for me in my testing.
