    I'm quite happy by now, this works much better than I expected. Outgoing voice quality being the biggest issue.

    Ill keep it for a bit, to test more. if anyone have questions, here i am.

    Can you find and install Google Goggles? That's the real test if it's actual 2.0, or just skinned!

    I know the camera doesnt work yet on the ROM, but u shud at least be able to install goggles..

    it's definately not a skin. goggles are unavailable on the market, maps 3.3.1 crashes so i'm back to 3.2.x
    good things:
    -lock screen is faster, nicer, shows battery % when charging, screen unlocks faster than on stock Roms
    - browser is improved
    - market as well
    - battery % is more realistic, yellow indicator appears much before shutdown
    - swap is not enabled in the kernel, kernel is 2.6.27 but no evidence that musty used drakaz' sources, nor which update is used. room is rooted, but there's no superuser whitelist app, no busybox

    Well, I certainly bricked up my phone! It's booting up but no 3G-capability nor wifi.

    If it does boot up, it's not a brick yet ) Have you tried flashing back to stock ROM?

    I have to say that I'm kinda new to this whole business. Guess I didn't take any backups of the rom. Is it possible to obtain the stock rom somewhere else?

    Basicly yes. But if you speak a little loud, there is no problem. I'm more worried about the battery than the calls quality

    I think as soon as that and the camera are working that'll be good enough for me to make the switch permanently!

    please also tell us what's still missing - do wifi, bt etc. work ok?
    ie. why wouldn't everyone want to upgrade to it just yet?

    ah, guess my expectations for "a list of un/supported features" were a tad too high :p

    tho' my questions are still more or less answered; unsatisfying call-quality, no gps, no bt, nonfunctioning handsfree, defective sync, external sd not supported etc.
    i'm thinking it'll be a while 'till this thing can be seriously considered as a replacement even for the standard cupcake k4

    For most people yeah. External SD should be working now though.

    Personally I can live without BT (since it's useless to me right now on Android 1.5), handsfree, and sync since I don't use them anyway. GPS would be very nice but at least cell tower location thing is working.
