    New rooted ROM - more to come
    Hello everyone. I am currently in the process of tweaking several points on the Flytouch3 rom. This is the first, mainly giving full root out of the box. Also, I have removed the System Update app which everyone seems to agree is completely pointless. This is based off of the 0316 rom. Market still works, and there are a few things I am currently working to take care of. They include:

    * Ad-Hoc networks
    * Many tier3 apps not showing in Market
    * That bizzarre darkness to the screen output in everything over update1
    * Volume (perhaps a DSP tweak/preamp?)
    * anything else that comes up along the way...

    Most of these are relatively small things and fairly easy to fix, but not all. If anybody has any information or interest, or would like to help in any way I gladly welcome your help. I can be reached via PM or email. (PM me if you need to email me)

    As usual, unzip the two firmware* files to the root of a (preferably empty, 4K-cluster FAT32) microSD/TF card. Then boot the machine. It will start flashing the machine. When it is done it will give you a message in broken english about finishing your work and shutting down, etc. At this point you can hold the power button for about 20 seconds and then release it. If you wait too long the machine will start vibrating constantly. Do not worry, this is normal. When the machine is off, yank out the SD card, and either replace it with a different one or remove the firmware2 and firmware-discovery files. Then have fun with your device!

    I also recommend always recalibrating the screen after flashing. It will save much frustration.

    Anyway, I am going back to hax on ad-hoc support!

    Happy hacking

    PS: I highly recommend either Zeam or LauncherPro (pay for the full version - it is worth it). They really make the device that much zippier, and make it nicely themable and slick looking as well, IMO. BetterKeyboard is also choice - makes typing a dream [​IMG]
