/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */

Something tells me downloading/flashing the traditional way would let me download faster...

Oh well, testing the OTA anyway.

If you are using the one here is the OP then you need to do the wiping yourself. The only one that wipes for you is the script OTA version, and it asks you.

Ran the OTA while I was getting ready for work this morning. Everything went as smooth as I'd expect with the group of guys that are working on this now.
I'm extremely happy to see that you decided to keep the terminal scripts inside the toolkit as well!

Any tips on just how many Easter Eggs there are? I don't wanna miss anything in this awesome ROM!

Awesome followup to all the previous Velocity ROMs, and Punisher/Frunisher, as well!

Great Rom guys! One question, is there a way to restore apps that were removed from Velocity toolbox? I accidentally removed the Browser and would like to add it back in.

You'll either need to find it somewhere and push it in or reflash the ROM without wiping.

Very nice. Snappiest ROM yet (so fast!). Don't think I'll go back to Frunisher, barring any unforseen circumstance.

Report of my current experience:
When trying to use alternate themes having issues. Went to the MIUI, then tried to use the psuedoSENSE. The MIUI was never removed, then I started having FC issues.

I reflashed to see if i can get a clean start.

+++
FC issues resolved.
Going to try theme again.

+++
When using the seMIUI theme the "setting" button popup reverts to white, but has white text and is not readable.

reverting to stock to see if that clears out themeing. clock and calendar had some sort of FC while applying the stock theme.

+++
applying stock theme does not seem to remove previous theme properly. trying cache and dalvic clear to see if that fixes it.

BTW- absolutely LOVE that this can now be done from the toolkit!

+++
clearing the caches did not clear out the themeing. reflahing ROM, again.

Any info or more in depth documentation on the Application Install Location settings? If I set it to always install to SD, it's not like the older velocities (0.# releases) in that if some things are moved to SD now, widgets won't work. Am I better of just leaving that setting "default"? Any help is appreciated. Thanks for the hard work, yet another great ROM.

Great ROM but one thing I wish they would make available in addition to Velocity 1.1 is a zip file of all removed stock programs (APK files) so people could easily have everything in one place to add some of them back if they need it.

First off thank you velocity team! This looks great and i havent even had the time to really get into things yet. However i have had just one small problem.

Since updating 1 widget doesnt work anymore. Its signal strength widget pro by bitmod dev. I can put it on the homescreen but it wont update, says tmobile as the carrier and no signal, the only other time ive seen it do this is when the phone was started in airplane mode and it didnt update. I wiped everything and reflashed and it is still having the problem.

Has anyone else run into an issue not being able to change the wallpaper? I've tried flashing a few times with both wiping and not wiping data, but each time I can't change the background to anything other than a live wallpaper. If I try using a picture from my gallery or one of the velocity wallpapers it defaults back to the green velocity one.

Any suggestions?

*Edit* I might have found my issue...I changed the default heap size from 12 to 16 and now I can change wall paper again

I haven't tried any pics, but I'm having receiving SMS/MMS issues. I did the flash OTA and only wiped cache/Dalvik.

Will try a full wipe and re-flash manually to see if it fixes the issue.

Confused

I can send and receive txts but can't send pics?
I think I also had this issue a few weeks ago, but it worked itself out somehow. I dunno?

My issue was pure operator error. For whatever reason my phone was on 3G only so I couldn't so squat. I would have figured it out sooner, but I rarely talk on the damn thing.

Velocity 1.1 = pure awesomness.

I don't know how someone got that 2,000+ score on quadrant. I'm OC'd to 748 and got 1052. Still very nice though...
Thanks so much guys!
Edit: And I've noticed that I've run Quadrant a few times in a row and it goes up about 100 points each time :-/

Very excellent work Team Velocity. Haven't done any quads yet but don't really care to either. Everything has worked flawlessly so far except the flashlight app. It works but it once I turn it off, the phone led keeps changing from red, blue, green once in awhile. Excellent battery life, Came off the charger at 10 this morning and after constant texting, email, facebook, and tweet deck im stll only at 46% battery life. That is also being overclocked to 787. went to 808 but the phone couldn't handle it. Very snappy and quick, Excellent work all. Thanks again for sticking with us Trident!

Cry Help

Help
I updated from 1.0 to 1.1 and now I don't. Know/can't connect to my data network
I used to use extended control to switch between wifi and data, but I can't switch to data in extended controls anymore because it doesn't support that on gingerbread
Can someone please tell me how to get back on my data network.
I already enabled data in settings but still nothing

yeah, MMS-wise, things don't seem to be working well on my phone, either.

Sent myself a normal txt, just fine.

Attach a jpg, and the message sits at "sending".

Can then still send another regular txt messge.

Rest of Vel1.1 seems nice, though!

Thanks!
