    Minor cosmetic improvements

    Installation file is now in update.zip format; compatible with both SPRecovery & Clockworkmod. Installation is also much simpler now.

    I've pretty much ported the smoked glass theme we all have come to know and love and packaged it into a pretty awesome FRG22D Based Froyo ROM. This is an update to my original posting found here:

    I don't think asking for personal donations is in line with the ideas behind open source software. Thus, I have decided to collect donation money for charity.

    Please Donate, read below...

    ALL (100%) of the money will go to NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION: Oil Disaster Recovery. I will be fully transparent in this process and will show any donors proof of the organization's receipt. I know this is a new idea, I hope it catches on. Please check out the organization at:

    Help Our Gulf Parks

    Send donations directly by clicking the link above, or PM me for my PayPal address.

    So far I have gotten excellent feedback on the ROM.

    Here's some info on it:
    ChevyNo1's 1100Mhz Low Voltage Kernell (Fast boot time, Improved Battery life, Great performance)
    Built from AOSP source, Based on FRG22D, newest available release

    Fully enabled & working apps2sd
    Root Access w/ SuperUser 2.3.6
    Busybox Installed & Working

    Smoked Glass Widgets (Credit to AdamZ)
    Minimum Brightness Hack
    Higher quality video recording
    HTC Toolbar / Toolbar Icons
    White Clock / All Ongoing Notifications Fixed (Music, Phone, etc)
    Big library of system sounds (All 2.0, 2.1, & 2.2)
    Droid X Ringtones
    Green Progress Bar
    Long WiFi Scan (Battery Saver)
    Ringer Delay Fix
    I removed Visual Voicemail & Amazon MP3 from /system/apps.
    Includes Motoroi File Manager, Notes Widget, Slideshow widget, and World Clock widget
    Includes the latest version of Google Maps (4.5)
    MMS app from CyanogenMod (more customizable, including black background)
    Allows any type of file to be downloaded
    In this release, I decided to leave Email & Car Home 2.2. If you want to remove it (or any other /system application) use Titanium Backup - free in market.
    Wired/Wireless Tether Tested & Working (no longer included)
    I highly recommend using Launcher Pro, It's free in the market. Much smoother than the stock Launcher....

    Download link: sg83-update.zip (WiFi error is fixed)


    Backing up...
    Google saves your contacts, programs, settings, and bookmarks on the cloud.
    You can double-back up program with Titanium backup, which will also backup application settings
    You can back up text messages with a market app called "SMS Backup & Restore".

    File is in the UPDATE.ZIP format.

    Place the file you downloaded anywhere on the SD Card. Easiest place would be the root directory.
    Chose "Install zip from sdcard" from the main menu
    Select "Chose zip from sdcard"
    Browse to the file (SG701-update.zip) and select it. Confirm the install, let it do it's magic.

    Rename the file you downloaded to update.zip and place it in the root of the SD Card.
    Select Install from the main menu
    Select Allow update.zip Installation
    Select Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)

    If you are running the most recent version of my ROM, you may not need to wipe data/cache (factory reset). It's never a bad idea though. If you bootloop, that is the reason.

    Here's a few quick screenshots:
