    We'll call this version 10 - It's based on Froyo 2.2.1 (aka frg83) built from source!

    Installation file is in update.zip format; compatible with both SPRecovery & Clockworkmod.


    I've pretty much ported the smoked glass theme we all have come to know and love and packaged it into a pretty awesome Froyo 2.2.1 Based ROM. This is an update to my original posting found here: http://androidforums.com/droid-roms/197288-rom-charity-smoked-glass-themed-v9-0-froyo-2-2-1-built-source-brand-spankin-new.html

    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.

    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: sg102-update.zip

    Instructions...

    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.

    Clockworkmod
    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 (SG9-update.zip) and select it. Confirm the install, let it do it's magic.
    Reboot.

    SPRecovery
    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)
    Reboot.

    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:

    What's the white circle with the green dot in the middle in the notification bar. Don't think I've seen that one before

    Looks like it is a battery meter.

    Yep, battery meter...one of my fav's. Now I don't have to metamorph it myself!

    Install was flawless. For some reason the time didn't show correctly and I had to manually adjust in settings...then put back to auto.

    One minor issue is that from the lockscreen, when I rotate to "sound is off" the notification bar lists that the phone is in vibrate mode. Haven't tested this to see if it IS actually in vibrate mode or not.

    Running very, very smoothly thus far.

    The last sentence from the first post:

    I was coming from a different ROM, though, so I don't know.

    I had the same problem with the previous version and it really was in vibrate mode. I had to start manually turning the sound and vibrate off.

    I was just about to flash back from SS4.8 to your v9.2 ROM and I saw this update. So happy now! Will test and see how it goes.
