    - First time flashing Velocity to your Ally (or coming from an Eclair ROM)?
    1. If you have not already done so, you must apply 2.2.1 Froyo officially using this guide before you can use this ROM

    3. Preform a Nandroid backup!
    4. Wipe all userdata
    5. Install the ROM

    Please Verify MD5 to avoid a bad flash, also if you want to upload and mirror let me know the link and I will add another, these mirrors are both personal servers of mine that are not used to high load.

    Known Issues:

    Gmail dark apk didn't get installed properly, you will need to download gmail from the market to fix.

    I know this release has been a log time coming and you have all been very patient with its development. I have spent a lot of time with this release to allow it to stand up to the test of time. Though versions past this are not expected. I will continue to support the Velocity Scripts as best I can, and if necessary I will implement minor patches using the scripts. It has been a pleasure working with and for you. I am glad to see other projects sprouting up and I am excited to see what lies ahead for this phone which was once considered past its time.

    Like what we've done? Help keep us going with coffee and beer (mostly beer)! All support is greatly appreciated. :D

    What do you mean by wipe all userdata because in the recovery they took off that option. Or in other words what is being wiped when you wipe all userdata

    I wont lose stuff on my sd card through right? What is the difference between wiping user data and wiping data, cache and dalvik cache
  11. jmar

    jmar Nexican VIP Member

    If you wipe data, cache and dalvik cache you'll be fine. I think the difference is from older RA recoveries displaying user data vs data. Same difference bud. Flash away!

    Will you consider a flashable zip for this sir?

    Thank you.

    And thank you for the ROM

    I'm going to flash the no clock mod for 1.1 to see if it works. I don't expect a version for 1.2 to be released so I'll guinea pig it.

    Yeah no problem, expect it tomorrow

    You guys are "the man!" - um, well, I guess it would be "the MEN!" :D

    I'm looking forward to trying this! Can't decide if I want to wait until tomorrow or do it tonight. Are GMail and the flashable zip the only things you're likely to add between now and then, or might there be others?

    THANK YOU!!:)

    Question about Trident's Camcorder - related issue?

    When I use CamScanner to scan a document, the camera in the ally will focus in to crisp clarity, but in an instant before the picture gets taken, the focus "moves past" the point of clarity. It usually looks like it focuses, gets clear, than backs off a little. This ends up with a fuzzy image for the document.

    I am wondering if, since there is mention of Trident's Camcorder, the 'regular' camera software might also be affected by this 1.2 update, and perhaps fix the above issue?

    "no clock mod"? What's that? :)
  18. savoxis

    savoxis Well-Known Member Developer

    That *should* be the only update, unless there is some glaring issue I missed. Also please be careful when using script themes (make a backup) until I get verification that they all work. I cant test them myself but I will get my guys on it asap

    What are the chances that the Framework.res gets uploaded to the Kitchen for themes? I made one for v1.1 that i love, kinda hard to give that up... but from what i've seen i liked the 1.2 theme.

    What are the changes from 1.1 to 1.2 besides incorporating 2.2.2 and the new theme?
