ya i just looked at it. it seems to be a really advanced rom atleast with all of those instructions he gave on how to install it. i dont think any rom (aside from zeus droid rom) has ever needed to be wiped using adb.
ill definatly add it, just going to wait till there is a completed version released. i don't want to put a beta rom in here just because i don't want sombody who is new to adding roms to install it incorrectly or install it and run into some bugs that they don't know how to fix. i'll definately add it though. good find Bizz. hell you probably know more about the roms i posted then i do..... actually, scratch the word "probably" haha you DEFINATLY know more than i do.
Bizz if you think im missing any important ones just let me or you can post them. which ever is easier man.

Brett, just curious since i see you have a familiar avatar, but did you used to go by bitfix? this all-in-one topic for Roms and themes is GENIUS! it makes looking at different options uber-easy. just wondering, though, if you or anyone else has screenshots of the Dominator Rom, Holy Blue theme, and Red Rum theme. the links have the pages to download from but i couldn't find any screenshots.
also, i see that some of the Roms/themes have icons at the bottom of the homescreens with the apps icon. is that part of the Rom/theme or something different that can be downloaded and installed with any Rom/theme?
thanks, again, man!

Ya my name used to be bitfix on here but I wanted my first name for a while. I mean what is a bitfix anyway haha. Thanks. As for the pictures they located at the link in most cases. Some forum require you to register and be logged it to view them and others just don't have pics unless it is from users within the forum. If anybody wants to post screen shots of the roms it would be a great addition. Ill try to see what I can do. The only problem is that in each post u can only attach a Max of 4 pics so I wouldn't be able to attach all o them in my original post. So if anybody post pics they will probably be scattered throughout the thread.
As for the icons on the bottom of the screen, that is a feature of helix launcher 1 and 2. At this point helix launcher is almost a necessity for roms and it is probably one of the most stable launchers. Until something better comes out you will probably see that in almost every rom.

I haven't tried it yet about to give it a go been on dominator 3.0 I'm downloading now
It's a full Rom
so i tried iron droid i would let it cook a little while longer before i suggest anyone tries it already back on dom 3.0. its just so fast i cant stray away to long

updated. i added a kernels section as well as a section for extras and i added the ADW launcher which is pretty cool.
Bizz how is the Dominator 3 beta? im waiting on the theme to be finished but the way Boost talks about it, it seems like it is one of the fastest roms. is this true? throughout the whole phone or just boot?
- 05-16-2010, 05:33 PM #12
The whole rom is fast boot transitions everything. The theme is almost done on the beta needs some final touches but last time I talked to him he was working on multiple themes. Only downers are tap talk doesn't work and no live wallpapers got to add the picker back in. I'm currently running at 550/250 and its not slow. Love the helix launcher shows fps. And will flix between the end home screens

For me its faster than Pete's. Their aren't many new features other than launcher theme. But he optimized the crap out of this rom its a blazer.flick or scroll as fast as you want its almost instant

oh wow. well i mean if it is fast and maintains that speed consistantly then ill give it a shot once it is out of beta and themed. im still waiting on BB 1.1 because it seems like pete has somthing up his sleeve with this one so if Dominator 3 comes out first ill give it a shot. if it comes out after then idk haha it might have to be put off for a little but unless BB 1.1 lags on my phone.

ok im gonna give it a shot tonight. just installing adb and all that mess haha. now by leaving 75 mb of ram free at all time what exactly is done with the 75 mb? also is that superman theme the one that is currently on his rom or is that just one that he is messing around with?
hey bizz (or anybody who knows) do you know of a site that shows you how to use ADB or gives you a full out example of how it should be typed. i keep looking but everyone shows me just how to install it and set it up, which i can do but i don't what i am supposed to do in order to wipe everything.
also just curious, what is the difference between wiping in adb or sprecovery/clockwork? is it a more thorough wipe?
- 05-16-2010, 09:34 PM #19
You don't need adb for this rom the script can be run through terminal and its free75mb the current theme is Superman though I have a feeling you may see an iron man theme also as far as the sites for adb I'll search for one and let you knowRooted for life
ok sounds good but what about wiping? he said to wipe using adb. i mean if i can wipe through recovery then i am good but i just dont want to wipe through recovery and it messes things up.
also he mentions to set "autokiller" to any of the settings. i have never even heard of auto-killer before haha.
sorry for all of the questions bizz but this after reading the instructions i realized i wasnt in kansas anymore

It is just me or is anyone else a little tired that Cyanogenmod & similar builds are the only ones available anymore?
I mean i'm not getting on the guy at all, he's a master builder (as is Koush for porting it), but I remember when Sholes, BB, etc all were a little different, and didn't have the same architecture.
I hope DM and Desire keep working. That will keep me happy, variety-well.
the thing is stability wise Cyanogen's roms are almost unbeatable at this time. Pete's BB 1.0 and 1.1 (when it is released) will/should be just as good but different as well. there are other alternatives but i agree with you. cyanogen's roms and also altered cyanogen roms are saturating roms

The main reason I don't like CM is that my home screen takes 3-8 seconds, sometimes 15, to rebuild itself, even when i'm OC'd to 800 MHz. I like Sense, because it comes back usually within 1 second, but unfortunately ZD is too unstable on calls.
