    Default [LIST] MTD ROMs & Kernels

    It seems like there's a lot of MTD ROMs coming out, so I figured I'd start a thread to keep track of all the MTD-goodness in one place. If there's questions about what MTD is exactly, I refer you to this thread from XDA: before you can install any of the current BML (EXT4 or RFS) ROMs. Luckily, it seems like there'll be more MTD ROMs coming out so this is becoming less of a draw-back.

    K, now that's out of the way, here's the list so far. Current as of 1/4/12 night.

    ROMs:
    ***********************
    ROM name: CM7.2.0 RC0
    Developer: UberPinguin
    Link: [ROM] EpicMTD CM 7.2.0 RC0
    Last update: Nightlies released, well, um, every night Though, since the devs are working on CM9, they may be more like weeklies than nightlies. If stability is important to you, stick to the RC.
    -- WIMAX!!!
    ***********************
    ROM name: MIUI
    Developer: xboxfanj
    Link: [ACS] [MTD] [YAFFS2] MIUI 1.12.23 RC 0.5
    Last update: 1/4/12
    -- Similar to iOS (at least, according to Wikipedia).
    ***********************
    ROM name: Stock-ish MTD
    Developer: Tortel1210
    Link: [EI22] Stock-ish MTD Build
    Last update:12/21/11
    -- Pretty much your stock GB experience minus the bloatware and CiQ.
    ***********************
    Name: MarcusantROM
    Developer: marcusant
    Link: ❑❒❑❒ MarcusantROM Revival v2 ❑❒❑❒ 130mb!.
    Last update: 12/24/11
    -- This is basically ACS ICS 5.5 with red theming. GPS seems to work if you follow these directions, and no more random reboots.
    ***********************
    Name: CleanGB-MTD
    Developer: toadlife
    Link: [ROM] [EI22] [CWM5] [MTD] CleanGB-MTD
    Last update: 12/29/11
    -- For those of us who just want our phones to $%#^@! work. EI22-based with custom black theme and bloatware removed. Now with working GPS
    ***********************
    Name: SleeperROM
    Developer: SenseiSimple
    Link: [ROM][CWM][EI22] SleeperROM - Sport tuned Stock - MTD/ BML(RFS/EXT4)
    Last update: 1/4/12
    -- Stock looks. All performance. MTD release is sort of a beta, so there may be issues with it.
    ***********************
    To switch between any of these ROMS, you won't need to Odin. If moving from a CM ROM (CM7 and MIUI) to a TW ROM, you have to wipe data before flashing.

    Kernels:
    ***********************
    Name: CM7 Kernel
    Developer: UberPinguin
    Link: Direct d/l link
    Last update: 12/24/11
    -- Stock CM7 kernel
    ***********************
    Name: IAP Samurai
    Developer: earthbound
    Link: [Kernel]BML/MTD/CM7 EI22 Samurai OC/UV RONIN <-[OFFICIAL] BUSHIDO3 for WiMax fix
    Last update: 1/4/12
    -- Supports OC/UV, Voodoo Color and Sound, kexec and increased stability from previous release.
    ***********************
    Name: Stock-ish MTD
    Developer: Tortel1210
    Link: [EI22] Stock-ish MTD Build
    Last update: 12/21/11
    -- V3 Kernel link in OP. Slightly undervolted with some tweaks for speed.
    ***********************
    Name: EpicMTD-TWKernel-v1.0
    Developer: zman0900
    Link: [KERNEL][MTD][EI22]EpicMTD-TWKernel-v1.0[GPL]
    Last update: 12/27/11
    -- Stock kernel with few modifications. Has kexec (still untested) which allows for dual-booting. Stable and good building block for devs.
    ***********************
    Name: CleanGB kernel
    Developer: toadlife
    Link: [ROM] [EI22] [CWM5] [MTD] CleanGB-MTD
    Last update: 12/29/11
    -- Link to kernel in OP. Stable, contains a WIFI patch that fixes spontaneous reboots. No Voodoo Sound/Color.
    ***********************
    Name: Shadowkernel
    Developer: bbelos
    Link: [Kernel][EI22][BML][MTD][CM7 w/ WiMAX] Shadow-v1.0.4+ / VoodooColor, OC/UV
    Last update: 1/4/12
    -- CM7 and MIUI version with Voodoo color, OC/UV, video recording, no voodoo sound for now, supports WIMAX. TW version with Voodoo sound.
    ***********************

    Themes:
    Any EI22 theme will work on an MTD ROM, but to flash them, you need to boot into CWM, mount /system (under "Mounts and Storage" menu), flash the theme, unmount /system and reboot. And, if you're on CM7, there's a HUGE selection of themes that can be downloaded from the market (thanks to codest3r for reminding me to put this in).

    Happy flashing!

    ROM
    CM7 alpha 1

    Default Re: MTD ROMs

    fyi, the reason why everyone is climbing onto the MTD bandwagon is primarily in order to eventually utilize ICS roms which will need to be hacked (and they will be!) since support and future 'official" roms will not be forthcoming from Sammy/Sprint. The little devils at XDA get their business up into everything!!
    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean people aren't after you.

    Yes. Any EI22 theme should work on MTD. Not so for kernels, though, so if you're flashing a different kernel, make sure it's designed for MTD.

    Yes ei22 themes will work with ei22mtd roms... to get them to apply there is a slight trick though... you must boot into cwm and mount system then flash the theme and then unmount system and reboot! Now enjoy your new theme!

    I just realized that there is updated version of SleeperRom (2.0.04), as I currently have the 1.1.02 version. So I want to flash the newer one, thus I'm wondering to see if I can flash 2.0.04 over the current version or would I have to do something else first?

    (SleeperRom was my first rom to flash, so I'm still learning about rooting)

    You can flash it directly over the older version of SleeperROM and there shouldn't be any problems.

    Great thanks. If I want to flash different rom, I would be able to flash it over a rom, as well?

    No, if you're flashing a different ROM you needed to wipe data, cache, and dalvik before flashing. Make a backup first, of course. And, only restore data from non-system apps if you absolutely have to, otherwise, reinstall everything from scratch.

    Also, if anyone's seeing this thread for the first time, the OP hasn't been updated since early Jan, so there's way better options available.
