    Come to our IRC channel for support and general discussion. Users in the channel get to test the latest BETA releases. We are #EpicROM on the Freenode IRC network.

    Please donate if you like my ROM. I am trying to raise enough money to buy the Motorola Droid X so I can develop for it. If you would like to donate, please do so here.

    There are doubles of some applications. I am and have been working on a fix. I recommended that you download LauncherPro from the Android Market to hide the extra applications for now.

    If anyone posts a fix below in the responses please do not attempt to use it or do anything with it until I confirm that it is a legitimate fix. If you try a fix and do damage to your device I am not liable.

    Follow me on Twitter!

    Special thanks goes out to:
    draya1986 for letting me use his Droid 1 theme
    People in my IRC channel for testing this release
    Speels for helping me figure out some unresolved issues

    Enjoy!

    I'm new to installing custom rom's and aside from cynogen, have always wanted to try your rom's. Is there a step by step guide to do so?

    Does this mean the stock contacts/phonebook/fb sync setup is back?
    No more of this blur contacts/social networking crap?
    That's the one thing that I absolutely cannot stand through blur, and would love to get rid of it.

    First off, thanks for your hard work. My phone is snappier and more consistent. 2.5 worked very well except for an unlock reboot issue. I haven't seen that issue yet since upgrading to 2.7 today. Is there any hope of getting the original DLNA app added? I don't see a market app that is free.

    I've been using 2.5 and think I'll try out this ROM tomorrow. Love your work so far! Glad to hear it fixes the unlock reboot issue as the previous poster pointed out. Hopefully Pandora works correctly this time around.

    I would have to say that they only real issue I have had with 2.5 is the unlock reboot.

    Has anyone used this long enough to confirm that it is gone?

    Also how would I go about keeping the black status bar? I like the changes that were made there and always thought black goes better with Android.

    Thanks

    I did a complete SBF bomb of my phone recently. Something happened between Tranquility and EU2.5 where I broke a few apps and things just weren't acting quite right. I will be rerooting soon enough but I was hoping for a little bit of a list as to what blur apps are still in the phone?

    Also: does the FroYo Gallery play nice with the camera now? or is it the FroYo camera app now in the rom?

    Thanks :)

    The "HTC Clock" is simply just Fancy Widget which is an app that is no longer available on the Market.

    Just updated and it seems to be working great! Once Pandora gets fixed I'll be a happy camper. :D

    I found a version of the free Pandora apk online and downloaded it. However it was 1.3 and I wasn't able to run the market update without breaking it again. I've gone back to regular stock until a version comes out where Pandora works (I use the app every day).

    DAMN - I was gonna do this until I scrolled all the way down.
    Good work and fast updates are great, Matt great job on that - just seems that the D2 is consistently buggy and other devs aren't really working on this, so I am sure that D2 specific help is rare
