remote killing would be like... if they thought I had cloned a device and was using a device they do not wish [or support] on their network... they kill your account **splat** so, I'm not using a device they don't support... I just don't want it to look like I am using something else either

I wish I was hard to kill... that would make me James Bond-esque... but not so.

Yeah, I forgot all about the build.prop lol.
I'm testing now to see how well everything is working and no problems yet.

After getting mobile network restored, I super-wiped, re-flashed your rom, and loaded ROM Manager and the official CWM 5.0.2.8 now available for Wildfire S CDMA. I also have it running with the updated Radio_V2, Radio_Cust, and Hboot 1.10.0000 from the FOTA and JMZs OC Kernel and all is still running fine. Basically my phone is back to being the way it was before it went crazy.

The worse part is, I have NO CLUE what happened to screw up the mobile network to begin with and thus, no clue what not to do again.

But yeah, my phone's happy, I'm happy, and definitely not gonna try to flash other roms, was just curious.

Default unhappy, marvelct, buggary

my phone is not quite happy. Let you guys in on simon's discovery. metro was built originally on a marvelct ramdisk... this is why early bootloaders won't run the oc kernel(s) correctly... so someone caught the uh oh and switched back to a marvelc ramdisk... Needless to say, all the errors made a little more sense to me.
I find my phone acting a lil wierd since unlocking... had already had s-off... and I'd like to know about any apk added or already in /system so smith.apk just strikes me odd. Also, I haven't had the best of luck yet with the official cwm. It seems to act a bit agitated on my phone; so, I've reverted to alquez's yet again.
btw, nice ics wallpaper/theme ya got there. Since the firestorm tide may have turned, suppose I'll go back to assisting simon on cm7. Building aosp can be a bugger. Fortunately, I've not had to do too much buggary, but I suppose its time to get my hands dirty.

Would it be possible to get a step-by-step post with links & such on how you accomplished this? I know I could sure use it!

I had noticed the oddly named smith.apk when browsing through the FOTA files found two threads on XDA that seemed to shed some light. One mentions it may be to help conserve the battery.

Accomplished what? Fixing the mobile network? gueroloks' post on the previous page has all the stuff. [Shortcut]
His post below it has links to screenshots of the QPST settings.

I forgot to mention, I ended up not needing the EPST.apk either. The problem with the port seemed to be either windows7 or having the full USB drivers installed (or both). I only got this to work on a windowsXP machine with ONLY the diag drivers installed.

Also to save ppl some google searching I can provide the following links:
[HTC Diag Drivers / Post with pics for diag driver install*]
[QPST]

*This post I link is for windows7 and it mentions putting the phone in diag mode (##3424#) before connecting to PC. Also I think a 32-bit version of windows would be preferable to try this on as I looked at both driver sets (32-bit/64-bit) and the 32-bit say htcdiag while the 64-bit are modem drivers.

So follow gueroloks' post and put your phone in diag mode before connecting to PC and, if able to, do all this on a PC that you haven't connected your phone to or installed HTC Sync on (and is preferably 32-bit OS).

If someone has instructions for making this work on a 64-bit machine that's also got HTC Sync and Android SDK running on it I'd love a copy LOL

EDIT: I figured it out...when you connect the phone to your PC make sure to disable USB Debugging first (Settings -> Applications -> Development).

I've got cdma workshop instead of qpsd. oddly i'm running win 7 32 and ubuntu at 64 bit. the only reason i have windows anymore is for new program compatibility. like the cdma workshop doesn't have a linux version
and wine (or any emulator) far from perfect.

ok... on the battery logger apk... anyone noticing better battery life? Bc I'm in fact noticing the opposite... could be that I have a vm phone with the wrong rom on it I suppose... but I also noticed an old enemy.. dialer...yep that's what's eating my batt and I made all of 2 calls maybe (on this rom) since yesterday noon. So, I went to the only known fix for this on sense (which is not a good one btw)... for now, but I was wondering if anyone else experienced same.

Battery life on my wfs has never been good. I bought battery on ebay (probably arrive today), it's supposed to last a lot longer, we'll see......

Re the dialer eating battery life, I remember reading (on xda , I think) someone saying that the dialer was not eating battery, irregardless of what was being reported. If/when I find link, I'll post it.. My phone reports dialer as being the main battery user too...

This fixed the dialer issue for me. I don't know if it actually fixes anything, but it definitely removes it from being the main user of the battery. (Mine rarely gets above 2% on this ROM with this fix)

-Open Root Explorer and open the /system folder.
-Locate Build.prop and copy it to the root of your SD card (/mnt/sd) with name "Build.prop1"
-Using an Android text editor (Notepad+) find the following lines:

# try to disable proximity sensor in call by default
gsm.proximity.enable=false


-Remove the "#" symbol. (Uncomment the line)
-Save as "Build.prop" to root of your SD card
-Copy back to /system folder, overwriting the original

Found on XDA somewhere. Cant remember where, and can't find it anymore.

yes that's the current fix... but it's just disabling or turning off your proximity sensor; which, is why I consider it a temp fix or not a good fix. The proximity sensor is not the culprit either.. Its the code... suspends with not enough wakes. CyanogenMod team has discovered the error and corrected it as best I can tell. HTC the manufacturer apparently needs to peep some open source. I love HTC; all my phones are HTC... but this has been a coding issue since the Desire (multiple devices) and I think it's high time they corrected it... especially when the commit fixes are out there... ok end rant

Rob

On battery life... think I changed the wifi scan delay from 15 to 180 in build.prop too. I also deleted smith.apk but if you live in a major metropolitan area, you might elect to keep it... its a scanner/logger that is the replacement for CIQ that appears to throttle network activity when communicating with trunk lines... to keep from trunk overload, dropped calls etc... mixed reviews, but I dislike loggers unless their local only... I don't care for ET to phone home without my knowledge in other words all in all battery much better today... my phone is happier.

Why can't you get back to v1.10 hboot? Don't have it or just want to play it safe and use an older version?

Default hboots can be funny

If you're HTC unlocked but not S-OFF you can't easily move bootloaders and/or radios... they are protected even though unlocked ::scratches head::
Anyway, I made a rom for the OTA update base... I'll upload it and share with you guys tonight. Nothing special at all... Kept 1.1 pure stock + root + Apps2sd (like the first version... The next will have some of the carrier apps pared out if you guys wish... but lets call it something different shall we... Your turn. Throw me some suggestions for what you'd like to see/ what you'd like the custom rom to be called. I'm open for requests. It reboots during setup (setting up Apps2sd) and then boots up slow (building dalvic). This time I deodexed it all so you guys could play, but it's the stock rom with OTA. I did disable proximity and increase time between wifi scan 180 sec or 3 min as opposed to 15 seconds.. but re-scanning that oft will kill a battery quick. Ok.. I'll upload this stuff and make a post. This will NOT update you hboot or radio.. it's just the base rom of the OTA (and I knew if I tried it would have problems with HTCDev unlocked folks). So.. expect something tonight.

Also, I've got the network error to occur but not to stick. It fixes itself with a reboot on my phone; so, the fix is not cooked in (just fyi) By all accounts, the above fix [gueroloks'] works well if you get stuck with one of my rom(s). VM has a similar issue with it's MMS actin funny, but I look forward to learning more about this thing. Also, CM7 looms on the horizon

Regards,
Rob

Just finished flashing. Working great!

I'll have to reinstall some apps. My last recovery (on 5.0.2.6) reported mismatched md5's so had to use an earlier one. Glad I didn't erase it!

Default glad to hear

Glad someone is like me and still on 5.0.2.6 I don't really like the Rom Manager official quite yet... just kind of wonky on some bootloaders, and thus, I didn't change build.prop to enable the recognition... yet.
Glad to hear it's working on you guys' phone as well. Imma keep an eye on that network on/off bc if anything is going to give me troubles; I think it will be that. It worked but felt a bit clumsy as I remember. Your battery will like the two little tweaks I made... and check out the wifi hotspot on you TP

Rob

Wha..? really? I rooted that rom I thought... I must really be getting old.

that's an easy tweak... don't forget to delete the lines in /system/customize/mns/default.xml that hide it too

So the root was off in that base? I thought it was clean enough to build from... going to have to rebuild I suppose. dagnabbit.

ok I retract the part about working on other bootloaders then... it boots on other bootloaders... but obviously... we still are going to do the hboot 1.10 it was build on if possible.

Ok... so I just reflashed and OTA's up to 1.10.0000. This boots super slow the first time... it took darn near 10 mins... but hey you get A2sd built-in now... you get rooted... you get, well all that good stuff... Seems to be running slick as glass on 1.10.0000 for me.

The next will have some of the carrier apps pared out if you guys wish... but lets call it something different shall we... Your turn. Throw me some suggestions for what you'd like to see/ what you'd like the custom rom to be called. I'm open for requests. It reboots during setup (setting up Apps2sd) and then boots up slow (building dalvic). This time I deodexed it all so you guys could play, but it's the stock rom with OTA. I did disable proximity and increase time between wifi scan 180 sec or 3 min as opposed to 15 seconds.. but re-scanning that oft will kill a battery quick. Ok.. I'll upload this stuff and make a post. This will NOT update you hboot or radio.. it's just the base rom of the OTA (and I knew if I tried it would have problems with HTCDev unlocked folks). So.. expect something tonight.

Also, I've got the network error to occur but not to stick. It fixes itself with a reboot on my phone; so, the fix is not cooked in (just fyi) By all accounts, the above fix [gueroloks'] works well if you get stuck with one of my rom(s). VM has a similar issue with it's MMS actin funny, but I look forward to learning more about this thing. Also, CM7 looms on the horizon

Regards,
Rob

Here you guys go if you know what you're doing don't wanna wait for a pretty post
marvelUSc_metroPCS_1-1_030712.zip

For MMS i have a back-up that i think it will work .. u need ApnManager.apk to use it

I'm ok... being a hobbyist... I have my ways to get back to base the main thing is flashing back and forth trying to recreate the error to fix it usually. My partner did more building with VM than I, and I personally didn't have a problem with VM MMS until I tried to port the (gsm) Euro base over to marvelc... then I saw what he was speaking of, but I've read up... I'll be ready the next time it rears it's ugly head but thank you ever so much for the offer.

Regards,
Rob

On a sidenote, I'm kind of tickled to be running metroPCS on a VM phone... I love when it says hello 3x to me Everything is smooth as grease for me... Oh.. I did recently run into another sd-ext issue... Have you ever yanked the phone off the computer too early and maybe not then... but after this occurence, even though you could not remember what caused it, things just don't go right. You can format sd-ext til your blue in the face and nothing! Well that happened to me too. Fortunately I had another phone sitting in my desk drawer with a copy of 4ext recovery on it. I keep saying this but man! those guys [madmaxx] know their stuff. The BEST partitioning tool(s) I've found bar none. Anyway, popped it in.. there's a lil check filesystem? Sure.. Error on sd-ext... you won't me to fix? Sure... bing-bada-boom done! So much easier than reformatting my entire sd care AND should you ever use the recovery/tool to partition, it makes sure the partitions are PERFERCTLY alligned. ::sigh:: I miss my G2... I still, if it's possible on nand, would love to try and port the non-graphical recovery if madmaxx would help me with some source... heck, Imma send him a device tree and tons of resized pics and see if he bites... main question is, is it possible on nand? twrp seems to make nand semi-brick I've heard.. so the newer, graphical recoveries... well they were written for higher-end phones... oh well, I digress. You can repartition your sd card should this ever happen... not in recovery.. like with a card reader and mini partition tool... or if your lucky like me.. use 4ext

OK so refocus... I built this base to work from... and you guys are getting ready to get a nice custom rom But first, I need a name... we are diverging from stock... so, umm I'm still open to suggestions... I will throw one out there... I probably will cut all the carrier stuff and release a HTC build base... then I'll cut the sense out... so when that happens, I was thinking (although it's not my personal favorite) I add the GO library and launcher... all that stuff... and call it GO-GO-Gadget 2.3.4... but that's still two builds away (at least); so help me come up with a HTC name... like Sense&Sensibility 2.3.4 or something of that nature.. TIA

WTF !!_x_!! Now I get a usb error in every ruu version I have & phone will no longer sync, no matter what backup or Rom I'm running. Tried different cords/ports n everything. Maybe I disconnected wrong? Idk I gotta figure it out before i test anything else. Also when I "adb devices" it gives me a daemon error. Demon? Anyways. Running your v1_0 Rom w/jmz's kernel and hboot 1.06.0000. Pretty quick and solid with plenty of internal memory. Only complaint is the screen glitches, one side of the screen lags when scrolling. Happened after kernel flash. Doesn't bother me though. Needless to say I'm a lil frustrated @ my phone right now.

Hey Rob,

Has your link for the FOTA version of the rom been updated to be rooted and what not? Saw it, but didn't want to flash it yet if it's still yet to be fixed.

Also, name...whatever the best version of any of the builds you make is....shall be called MetroSexual

+1 for MetroSexual!!!

Just updated hboot to 1.10.0000. Thanks for tutorial, Rob!

Just flashed over to MPCS 1.1. Nice flash script, BTW. Like the team logo. Makes it look official


MetroPCSv1.1 is rooted. Has busybox and Superuser preinstalled. Also has support for A2SD, which is nice. ROM flows like it should. Everything seems to be working as it should. So far, a great ROM for us lowly MetroPCS users.

P.S.
Rob, you'll eventually HATE that "Hello x3".

Edit: A suggestion for 1.2? Remove 90% of MetroPCS bloatware. For a full list of things safe to be removed, use the following list: List of apps safe to remove. It is still a valid list, as none of the APK names have changed. However, I don't recommend removing myMetro, as for some reason this ROM goes ballistic with errors when ya do.

Cool good to know it's all working, will flash 1.1 later on.
As far as Metro apps to keep I'd say myMetro, MetroWeb, and Easy WiFi.
My Metro is basically an aacount manager app so useful to have. MetroWeb is their web browser and if I remember it right (only skimmed) I think the TOS requires you to use it. Easy WiFi contains a list of WiFi hotspots and logins for said hotspots and will log you into them when in range. All the others I've already frozen or completely uninstalled and no issues.

And yeah the hello x3 does get old, I already deleted it from my phone and have the nice, and more importantly, silent stock android boot animation lol

Easy WiFi is nice, but I don't want it. It will overtake my saved hotspots and connect to the Easy WiFi by default. Quite annoying. MetroWEB is nothing but the stock Android browser, renamed.

Also, elaborate. I haven't been able to find the boot sound, anywhere. Nor have I been able to get rid of the friggin MetroPCS splash screen.

@insink71 thank you for taking time to make this rom possible for metrosexual folks :P

I've been keeping an eye on this thread because my gf has htc wfs on metro and
she always bitching about the low space annoyance.
I follow this guide to get rooted and s-off [Tool]Cdma Wildfire S-off, Root & Cwm One Click/Script (Rc 1.0) - xda-developers and I tried remove some system app and bloatcrap comes with the phone didn't do much without facebook leaves her with 22mb of internal memory go figure...

my question is do I need update hboot to be able flash "marvelUSc_metroPCS_1-1_030712.zip"?

Default hmmm

It's wierd I know.. but if you flashed Anything.. you've probably messed up HTC sigs which will make FOTA update.. very difficult. Solution is to get a copy of RUU. Football on xda has links but prob will ask donation. Well worth it. Its good insurance to have.
If you haven't flashed anything... Just need to clear space.. think it's around 40m free and it should install.
Tip on this.. wipe cache or if you prefer seeing mem cleared while phone is running.. clear data in contacts.. she might freak out temporarily but reassure her all that stuff is synced with google, facebook and wherever else she pulled contacts in from... That step alone sometimes give you 20m when you get a2sd make sure to move dalvic to sd... Then no more worries

A lil lolly for you guys from HTC.. They left their function test on this rom.
*#*#3424#*#* ... You'll see it pop up and you can test stuff out.. my light sensor didn't want to play.. but most everything I tested worked. A sidenote.. Diagnostic mode on metro is ##3424# .. similar but not the same. Only need Diagnostic mode if you're an uber geek like me

Oddly enough, I was thinking of nixing slate and adding purple passion. The wfs is a top-notch gf phone.. time someone add some feminine themes.. since mostly guys tinker, I don't hear the female perspective oft enough, but someone recently whispered in my ear ::shrug::

The sound is nestled down in /system/customize/resource folder usually at least.. yep.MetroPCSbootanimation.zip and MetroPCSbootsound.mp3. Early on, I would just back these up, then replace with animation and sound of your choice.. naming them the respective same name... If you want to get more complex, you can edit default.xml in the /system/customize/CID folder but I suggest the easy way for now; otherwise you'll more than likely knock out bootaudio and not know how to get it back.

Thanks Rob. I had found them on your other MPCS ROM, but they've moved them in this one.

Ok, so I started over. I wasn't happy with the way I had setup my phone, so I reflashed MPCS 1.1 ROM and installed JMZ OC kernel.

It bootloops.

Mindh4x8r's kernel bootloops as well.

Edit: Mindh4x8r's kernel bootlooped twice, then booted fine.

Running 1.1 now. Literally just installed it lol

So yeah, that 1st boot does take forever. I think it even rebooted a couple times.

I have not tried Mindh4x8r's kernel at all, but I put JMZ's kernel in the ROM before I flashed it and it booted no prob. Still need to run initial setup and restore my apps with Titanium, but so far so good.

Not sure why there's an issue running the kernel since we should have the same phone (MarvelC) and same ROM (from this thread). Are you using hboot 1.09/1.10? Should work fine on either of those.


EDIT: Got everything restored and it's running great.
Tested most of the apps they're all working and no probs with OC kernel.
Forgot to mention, installed the ROM using the official 5.0.2.8, ROM and superwipe worked fine with it.

One plus I noticed is I seem to have more free internal space now than I did with the v1.0 ROM



Also wanted to ask, is this in ROM Manager now? Saw something in there about a version for hboot 1.10 users.

You tell me

Thanks
So many I can't remember them all.
eoghan2t7 - for his work developing s-off [w/o xtc clip]
GotsOJ - for being the first to document his s-off experience (was very helpful).
alquez - for his work on the Unoffical CWM Recovery and port of CyanogenMod [which is where I'll be spending some development time next (kernel editing)]
dsixda - of course for his kitchen
jikantaru - lots of sense development for the Euro-side of this phone
Football - for his skill at acquiring RUUs.. please go thank him [over on XDA]

Please note: I do try to support my roms and I am working on a newer Rom for MetroPCS; however, I am tired of supporting people that flashed other roms (sometimes even gsm), screwed up their phone, flashed my Rom back on, and then say it don't work. Luckily I've not seen this on this thread, but my pm and email boxes have been blowing up with MetroPCS support cases. This is the ONLY known rom written specifically for your device. MetroPCS has good coders working for them, because their base is more complex than the other two carriers the MarvelUSc team supports. If I owned your device I would not flash any other ROM. If you choose to, and you then come back to me for a fix... I may well ask a donation amount.. It's hard enough for me to care for my code, but if I have to dl roms, break them apart, see what partitions they may or may not have kicked up (as it pertains to your device), then Use the RUU (I paid for) to administer the fix (which I haven't got working right for the newer S-ON bootloader as of yet)... Well it's time consuming and I can't work on newer roms for you guys if all my time is monopolized. So take it easy and flash THIS ROM ONLY right now if you are MetroPCS.
Thanks.

If anyone has trouble getting ota [to new 1.10 hboot] Football has released RUUs. So download metros, RUU reset/install, if you've flashed anything that has cMTD or a custom oc kernel [note on this: m1ndh4x8r's closest to something I would use; however, apps2sd and the oc kernels have not been playing nicely together; I have thusly remanded myself to stock kernel [my personal choice at this time] until such time that source is released and I can make sure they play together more seamlessly] format your /sdext with a sd card reader/writer, upgrade to ota, flash 1.1 if you want root/apps2sd.
Yep, its the one on rom mgr I do believe
I have run it with a VM USA phone [mine], but it is metroPCS' rom; so, specifically it is for and [should] work best on metroPCS devices.
No plans at this time for a specific metrosexual rom; however, all users are welcome regardless of sexual orientation.
Oh, and I forgot to ever go back and make a pretty OP -> 1.1 transition page.. will do.. Also, I have a couple alphas I will drop to you guys as I am taking a wee bit of vacation. I typically do NOT release alphas or betas pubicly, as they are unsupported; so, I typically limit to test team, but I will be down for at least a month if not longer; so, it will give you guys something to play with.
Sense and Sensibility - alpha .7
This knocks out metro bloat but increases HTC bloat. Lots of work still needed to get this where I want it.
Knock'd Senseless - alpha .8
Knocks out all metro and HTC apps; still work yet to be done on this as well.
Will make release post for these two builds and clean up the thread before I vacate for a bit.

Nice to see you, Rob.

FYI, I'm running your 1.1 rom. In settings > about phone my hardware version is 0000.

I gather that's not normal. Maybe that's why I can't flash any other kernel or rom.

That isn't normal. Since I am pretty positive I walked you through the above posts clearing cycle... This for everyone's benefit.. I haven't a clue as to how to fix odd anomolies like this, but I have seen them reported elsewhere. Guess where? A cMTD marvelc dev's thread... trouble with gapps and/or market install, oddities in font display, etc. I would guess sometime in your phone's lifecycle, it might have been flashed to a cMTD rom. Two things about the cMTD script.. it typically has a paired removal script and some say format and flash /recovery [some even say this is all one need do] as well. Guess what a RUU reset does? Formats and flashes your phone system [including /recovery]. Also, we've cleared the sometimes problematic /sdcard [in case it was a kernel/apps2sd error] ... This is one thing I will seek to answer to quiet my own mind's inquisitive nature.. what may have cMTD reached out and touched that cannot be cleared by such? As I have in the past, I still cannot bring myself to flash cMTD for Wildfire S bc of support cases and what I know of the script [which is admittedly less than I should, but again not using it] Here is what I do know...It is an ingenius script written long ago by Firerat [imma gonna guess and say g1/dream era, might be wrong on that.. but it was some time ago]; It repartitions [temporarily] your internel memory of phone; it is considered an advanced mod; it needs to be written in conjuction with knowledge of a device's bootloader [any cMTD script doesn't work on any device; at least not correctly] As I am still learning about my phone's hboot, I seriously doubt a dev who does not own a wildfire s has explored our devices' hboot to any level that I would feel comfortable recommending the mod he may have used; in fact, I believe I don't recommend any cMTD at this time bc I have not personally tested any [nor do I have a burning desire to do so]. As the dev I am making reference to has had disagreement with me in the past, I will further say, this is NOT personal but it is my personal opinion.
Now, tell me you've flashed only stock and my rom and I'll eat crow on this [and pull this post]; don't mind... I am only speaking to similarity in bug reports... thus, I'm going out on a limb.. but might you have flashed Len**mod [or possibly another *ensemod]? My best guess as to the source or origin to where it may have [first] occured.. I will also further say, I believe this dev does GREAT work, sorry we've had disagreement, but I do wish for the time being, he'd remove the script until more is known ::shrug::
If you have told me in the past... I'm old and forgetful, but if you have flashed one of the afore-referenced [even if you do not feel like confirming publicly... Send me a pm...] I will check code of [prior] install, patition tables, etc for whichever cMTD and see if I cannot undo any damage that may still be plaguing.

Thanks for the quick response!

I think that the hardware version 0000 was always like that. I remember thinking that it was a MetroPCS thing.....

I've only tried the oc kernels. Also, I flashed m1ndhexer's rom. I think I flashed benjamingwynn's sense rom, but not sure (you're not the only one getting old and forgetful ) I also tried simonsimons34's super wipe, but it didn't work.

I'm now running your 1.1 rom. It runs fine. Your 2 metro roms are the only ones that have ever worked with my phone. If there's no fix for this, no biggie, the phone works fine with 1.1. I would like to oc, but if I can't, I can't.

Enjoy your vacation, sabbatical, whatever. I'll try to figure this out.

See you when you get back.

This was why my guess:
1) I kind of walked you through several wiping scenarios and RUU reset to try to clear what I perceived as odd bugs.. you had mentioned you had trouble with market and gapps reinstalling after the clear[ing methods [[still]]].
2) Apps2sd / kernel issues are almost always marked with the following characteristics: can't install programs, out of mem msging; bootlooping [in case of kernel] or just won't boot; and many times corruption to /sdext... Which I've wiped 7 ways from Sunday; only to find the best method is pulling your microsd sticking it in a reader/writer and totally wiping it out reinstating it and reformatting... This I don't like, since I prefer phone-side support and fixes, but it is a surefire cure to /sdext corruption; other cure is 4ext recovery [which has repair] but is not available on WFS... as of yet.
3) the partioning bugs mentioned in 1 and above have, up to this time been ppl that tried a rom w/ cMTD [and oft didn't know it; the script is built in] It may not hurt [additionally if you had tried an aforementioned] to flash back to the cMTD rom, then reset partition info back to match factory, then remove. Ppl that have flashed the mod independent of a rom don't seem to have issue with after effects; perhaps, bc they better acquaint themselves with script and its removal method.
4) I used this script for a short time when I was a poweruser/tester back on G2. I switched/quick flashed to new rom(s) and had many issues. I finally sat down and did #3 one day and it fixed it. I vowed not to use the script again for my uses bc I was flashing/testing new roms like changing underwear; and a monkeywrench only slowed down that testing. Now, if on the other hand, you preferred smaller /system more /data and you were content to stay with a rom for a set amount of time.. lessay 2wks+, this script makes more sense, but otherwise there is definately a deinstall method that one need follow otherwise, you end up with a phone throwing bugs [mainly bc of mounts] and you can even flash something you know would work [my roms are safe bc they are pretty much bone stock] and it still not act 100%.
5) Luckily, I have never bricked a device, but the aforementioned #4 stands out as one of the major issues I've had with a device.. I have been "safe" all this time not using cMTD. I even flashed a Desire Z eng hoot to G2 to increase /system space [another advanced mod]; so that, I could test and try the latest and greatest sense roms w/o issue [sense is kind of bloaty to /system]. This smells like cMTD; if its not, I'm a paranoid wierdo But if it were me and my device [I've also been able to get everything back to "right" for all my devices; I have a 3-vibe sitting in a side-basket at work that a russian sent me that mocks me daily, but I plan on fixing it too] I would look into the cMTD script, dl & install, set partition info back to factory mounts [lil text file on sd], deinstall cMTD, maybe even fastboot format and reflash recovery from hboot [again] and then flash some non cMTD roms [or stock RUU] and see if your phone doesn't feel buttery again. If it does, it was cMTD [just make a mental note of the trouble it was to clear it and you might end up a paranoid wierdo like me ]

Not much help, but the best experiment one with gapps, market and display or font bug issues [for Wildfire S] can try; these my mind equates to cMTD and I really don't like going back and messing with what I consider a bomb I once disabled so my experience with cMTD and WFS is nill [other than support]

I reformatted the /sd-ext with mini tool partition and with a card reader, not the phone. Having done that, I was able to install ota, giving me 1.10 hboot.

I have your metro 1.1 installed, running great. I'm content with this as the phone works very well. Having said this, I would like to oc, if possible.

I looked into cMTD and I don't think I'm going to do anything with it. I mean, my phone is running perfectly well, why mess with it?

Enjoy your vacation and see you when you return.
