    How to install:Important!
    How to install:Important!
    You will need to download Koush's bootstrap application and bootstrap your recovery. Then you can boot into recovery via the same app or you can install via ROM Manager(by rebooting into recovery, not via install rom from sdcard). Once you boot into recovery do a FULL nandroid backup and then you go to mounts and storage and mount /system manually to avoid more issues. Install zip from sdcard and toggle signature verification to disable. Now you can install the zip from the sdcard. Once this is done, reboot.

    Hi,

    I assume since it doesn't call this out specifically, and nobody's asked yet, this has the stock kernel in it?

    Are there any kernel's that work with this rom other than the stock yet? I assume this functionality is still in the 'trying to get it work' phase.

    Joe

    The bootloader is still locked. You can not install custom kernels with a locked bootloader, so yes this is still stock

    Just loaded 1.1 (using updated instructions to mount /System first) and loaded and booted fine.

    Benchmarks about the same as the stock ROM for me, 1400-ish quadrant.

    Only potential issue that I've found so far is that I can't send Exchange mail at the moment...hard to say if that's a ROM issue or email server issue, as our sync server can go off once in a while...I'll wait a bit and see if it persists, and flash back to stock if it does to see if that fixes it.

    Exchange emails sent, so most likely a server issue. :)
