    Fresh Rom 2.0d (Android 2.1) by flipz

    [ROM] 04/02/10 | Fresh Rom 2.0d (Android 2.1) | visual voicemail + a2sd + lwp - xda-developers

    Changes / features:
    • Based on new Sprint leak (thanks damageless. Note that fresh rom is not at all based on damage control, but he shared the leak.)
    • Auto apps2sd (as long as your card is partitioned properly, it will use it)
    • Autokiller (an app that lets you dynamically set your memory kill off points -- you decide how aggressive you want to be. It will ask for root on first boot, make sure to hit always allow. Then once your phone is booted open the app to pick your setting.)
    • Multi-touch maps
    • All protected apps in market (I'll edit this if I get confirmed reports of missing apps)
    • Visual voicemail
    • Live wallpapers (yea, they're back! Keep in mind that our phone can't handle the higher end ones.)
    • Accelerometer working (I broke it in 2.0c while playing with a2sd at the last minute. Oops!)
    • Removed now defunct Sprint NFL and replaced it with the new Sprint Football Live
    • SMS notification led now works
    • Trackball led now works
    • No google sign on error
    • HTC Power Manager(do not use SetCPU!)
    • Espresso bottom bar by flipz
    • Full color HTC sliders by flipz
    • flash_image for flashing RA
    • Custom htc_ime from xda (English and Spanish activated.)
    • Multi-touch Google maps
    • Custom PRI correction by flipz (this will automatically correct your PRI so that you can update your PRL and use the Sprint apps. No crazy steps. NOTE: You will notice your radio drop out for a bit on first boot while it does this, and this is right about the time that you will be hitting the google sign on setup screen. Wait for the radio to drop and come back, and then data to return)
    • Nexus Launcher2 (thanks 702droid)

    wtf? Flipz said he wasn't going to make a new one until the official 2.1 came out :p

    edit: I don't like the looks of it, and I'm too lazy to change anything with it...so I'll stick with DC2.05 for now lol

    do you HAVE to update the radio in order to use the 2.1 ROMs... and is the updated Radio OK for use with the 1.5 ROMs? I've been resisting the current 2.1 ROMs but this one looks to be pretty complete..

    I am running a 2.1 rom without the updated radio. FWIW I have run multiple versions of 2.1 without ever updating the radio.
    The phone still works the same as far as I can tell it's just the signal display that looks off with the older radio and the 2.1 roms.

    I'd say flash away, and I bet you might not flash back.

    Flashed and all is well. Everything that I have used to far is working perfectly. All apps are showing up in the market. Seems like a very stable build.

    Flashed on my lunch break. So far so good. Small problem with FB contacts completely syncing. To resolve I rebooted, removed FB account, then re-added. Seems well now.

    I love the fact that it has the Nexus Launcher built into it.

    Will report back more as testing continues.

    I was resisting the jump to 2.1 till the official release but I saw this was from Flipz and I have had nothing but luck with Fresh 1.1. So I decided to give it a try. All the protected apps that I have had showed up in the market and installed fine. Alarm works just fine. Its fast and snappy. The battery life seems great so far. I still cant wait for an official release. But I am comfortable using this till that happens.

    flashed... and went back to Fresh 1.1 . why? because it can't figure out my location correctly. it think I'm about 90 miles from where I really am. I tried it by both GPS and wireless network. if the phone can't tell where I am, then it will be USELESS in an emergency.

    Are you using an Airave? I know that people who were using one were having problems with location. My location is spot on.

    My location is fine as well. This seems to be an infinitely better ROM than Damageless2.0 (no offense)

    yes, I'm using an Airave.. I did try turning off wireless location to eliminate that and using only GPS, it still showed me as being 90 miles away. On Fresh 1.1 it gets my location perfect each time. with or without wireless location being turned on. I really hope they get this worked out before the official release.

    If there's a way to get it to work correctly with Airave let me know.. I liked what I saw before going back toe Fresh 1.1

    Flipz' 2.0d is based on Damageless' 2.05.

    I get better location results when my Airave is turned off. Google Maps says accurate to 6 meters, and the satellite layer points to the exact spot on my roof above me. If I turn the Airave back on, I get a 100 meter circle.

    Search on XDA. I read that even Sprint knows that the Airaves are messing up locations. Not even sure if they are looking to fix it or not.

    I have an airrave and it throws your location off. It only happens when on the airrave. If you are out using a tower you should be fine (thats how mine works anyways).

    wonder why my location works perfect on 1.5 but on 2.1 it's WAY off on Airave... makes no sense
