    I made a custom ROM due to the fact of the lack of ROMs for this phone. I think people need some choices so I figured I would give them 1 more choice.

    This ROM is based on Android 2.2.1, more specifically getitnowmarketing's 2.2.1 update, thanks man!

    To Install this ROM you must have installed the custom recovery, go here to do that: Custom Recovery Vortex/Thunderc-vzw - Android Forums

    Once you install the recovery, boot in to it and do the following:
    Make an Nandroid Backup: (Nandroid + android.secure)
    Wipe: Data/Factory Reset, Dalvik-Cache
    Install: LightningC-v1.0.zip (downloaded ZIP that is placed on your SD card)

    Features:
    Android 2.2.1
    Pre-rooted
    -Latest Superuser-
    -Latest su-
    -Latest Busybox (with run-parts support)-
    DeOdex'd + Zipaligned all APKs
    All Bloatware Removed
    -Except for Visual Voicemail, just incase you use it-
    JIT + Hardware Acceleration
    LauncherPro
    -Faster than stock or ADW EX-
    Updated Apps
    -Market-
    -Gmail-
    -YouTube-
    No Bing
    -Includes search button on hardware!-
    Custom Boot Animation
    Bash + Nano
    Easy System Mount/Unmount
    -Go to terminal/shell and type sysro for read-only, sysrw for read-write-​

    Special thanks to:
    dsixda for speeding up the process: [KITCHEN][MAR. 12 '11] HTC Android Kitchen, v0.141 [Linux / Mac / Windows] - xda-developers
    Dysgenic for the boot animation: [BOOT ANIMATION] The Droids - xda-developers
    getitnowmarketing for the base ROM: Rooted 2.2.1 Update - Android Forums and for the recovery linked to above

    Just updated to v1.2.

    Thanks for the feedback, and I'm not sure what I can do about a black status bar. Every time I try to edit something to do with themes I can't get the phone to boot up. D:

    I noticed a new bug. Read post 2 for more information.

    Do you mean updating this one? If so, yes. I actually have v1.3 ready and it includes My Verizon to fix the problem with the Backup Assistant. I also made an attempt to try and remove the app that checks for OTA updates in a previous version, but I obviously can't test it because this is the latest OTA version available!

    EDIT: I could just click 'Software Update' in About Phone I guess...

    There seems to be an issue with Titanium Backup not being able to keep track of when newer apps are installed and need to be backed up.

    Also, Titanium Backup cannot see certain installed applications. Under the Breakneck ROM, this wasn't an issue.

    Also, with the removal of the stock video player, I can no longer register my device to play DivX movies.

    Otherwise, I like the ROM running 2.2.1.

    UPDATE: DOH! The issue with Ti Backup was that I forgot to install BusyBox. Installing BusyBox cleared up the issue with not seeing applications installed and also, not finding the correct apps to backup.

    Well, now I have another issue. When I select Settings->Connectivity, it spits out this error:

    Sorry! The application Settings (process com.android.settings) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Now that bhast's breakneckmod has been blocked (his site is gone too), it appears your ROM is the main player on the block now for the Vortex. Any idea on when 1.3 will be released?

    Thanks!

    I told them what happen about the kernel I put the wrong zimage in the rom
    But the admin don't respond back so I gave up I will only release on xda

    Hey anyone found a good video player to use with this rom? Looking for a good versatile player for phone videos as well as other formats. :) This ROM rocks, btw.

    this looks like exactly what i want.. how stable is it.. i have a vortex arriving in 2 days (first android phone) and this looks like the answer to most of my issues.

    If you need someone to help theme i can lend a hand, I'm a DX themer but have a friend or 2 that uses the vortex. so i'll probably be doing something basic and quick to give it a darker look. i can post what i have if i get it releaseable :)
