    yes sasquil, you should. you guys with droidx, maybe droid 2 as well, anyone use tranquility? it's a blurless rom and i LOVE it. it has a stock launcher and stock icons but can still retain some of the functional stuff from blur.

    Bump. Finally got around to rooting my phone and installing a custom Rom, it was easier than expected it just involves a lot of reading beforehand and a lot of steps.

    [​IMG]

    I'm using Darky's Rom. It's one of the fastest Froyo roms out and it's very, very snappy even with all my stuff already loaded on it and that's with Voodoo lagfix disabled. It's 2.2.1, has more RAM, the stock Android lock screen, Nexus S bootscreen and some Gingerbread tweaks. I couldn't find any stock roms but I'll settle for this :toast:

    I recently moved over to Darky's ROM for the first time. I like it, went with the SpeedMod kernel instead of the Voodoo one. Definitely recommend it.

    DaveK, d'you have these apps "Telegraaf" - "DigiLezen" and FileIndex installed? I really want to get rid of them.

    Nope, haven't got them. Have you tried removing them with an app? I used SGS Tools to clear some apps.

    Need some help people. Rooted my G1, worked. Got it back to 1.5, then updated it all. Installed the Recovery.img and that worked. Now, i want to install this:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=929678

    But im not sure what radio, SPL and gapps to use. I followed this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR0HpUVv-BY

    Then when he installed Cyanogen, i installed Gingerbread. Now im stuck on the boot screen and have been for 2 hours... ideas?

    I'm thinking the files i used, from the video, ain't compatible. So, anyone have links to "SPL: 1.33.0013d (hboot)" and "RADIO: 2.22.27.08 / 28.25"? Then, what do i do from the Recovery screen to delete all i did and install Gingerbread?

    HBOOT-1.33.2005 (DREA11000)
    and
    RADIO-2.22.23.02

    So, according to that article, i don't need to do that.

    Ya, I do. It comes in handy being that I'm English and live in Taiwan.

    For example:

    Me: Do you have any mustard?
    Chinese person: @#$3%^!#$.
    Me: <shows mustard with Google translate>
    Chinese person: Oh, aisle 10.

    :)

    Right, can someone give me a quick set-by-set of what to do from my position.

    I can access HBOOT fine (HBOOT-1.33.2005 / RADIO-2.22.23.02) and i can access my System Recovery fine (RA-dream-v1.7.0).

    I have the following on my desktop:

    HBOOT-1.33.0013d
    RADIO-2.22.27.08
    gapps-tiny-112010 (that the right one?)
    froyobylaszlo-5.1 (from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=929678)

    If my thinking is right, i need to:

    - Delete the rom etc. that i installed wrong
    - Move the files from my desktop onto my SD
    - Install everything
    - Boot

    However, i'm not sure how to go about that... So this is where i need the simple instructions and advice :)

    Well, I had it for about a month :pimp:. It is great, but if I was in the position of looking into a new slate, I personally would wait for other companies to release their honeycomb slates.

    Any notable changes in 9.3? I'm just waiting for a stable release but might change to the beta if there's something worth updating for.
