but this rom is great and thats the only flaw ive found so whoever wants a fix here it is:
to anybody that wants a temp fix .. on your dial pad press *#*#4636#*#* then go to the first selection there which is phone information and click menu. then click the first selection on the menu that pops up and its going to force close. then go back to phone information and scroll down to wher it says CMDA auto and switch it to CMDA only, then again switch it to CMSA auto. do this every reboot and you should be good.

I have a long sordid history with that menu, and attribute a LOT of early OV network issues to that menu. Personally, I won't touch that menu.
The problem is not nearly what people make it out to be. Does it hurt battery life? It depends, but from what I and others have seen, it's minimal at best.

While some roms take the approach of include all you can to appeal to as many as possible, my roms take the opposite approach of, "here is a good foundation, add what you need to make it work best for you". This way you get the cleanest, fastest rom possible without any bloat.
Unless you are a real heavy user, you have something else killing your battery. Testing has shown all roms get relatively the same battery life at this point.

Leslie, I wanted to thank you personally for your terrific Rom. I was previously running stock+xperia and my phone was running like a piece of crap, barely better than the Stock battery wise and about as stable as Windows 95. Your rom/kernel combo is a night and day difference.
I'm sad to see you're putting it on hold especially when I finally discovered a great rom worth sticking with. Well whatever happens, I wanted to say thank you for your hard work. This rom is phenomenal.
You've got my sincere appreciation.
It's not like the rom is going to fall apart, it works great as it sits, it just lacks a tweak or two that some others have. No need to run away from it just yet.
I just need to take some time and figure out how to do some things before I can move ahead. Not to mention time at the moment seems to be an issue. Work has been crazy lately.
Basically everything I have done with roms and kernels was more or less done by hand using a text editor and file compression program. Unfortunately, it's reached a point where using the methods I have been using are becoming a hindrance.

thanks for a great rom with what seems to be the best battery life out of all the roms
Some suggestions for the next iteration of your rom:
1. A file browser included would make things easier, since the very first app I install is titanium backup. That way, I don't have to go to the market, input my account settings, find and install a file browser, and then install titanium backup.
2. More ringtones Or maybe a flash to add the extra ones in?

Thanks mmarz, I've done these before, but the problem is they require a computer. There are times when I want to flash a rom but not be tied to a computer. Whether its at my friend's house, or sitting on the couch with my girlfriend, I'd like to be able to complete the flashing and restoration of my apps without a computer. Of course when I am close to a computer pushing works pretty quick and is my first option, but I don't want to have to have a computer around. After all, I can download a new rom straight to my phone, why not be able to do the rest right then and there? And I have tried roms before that included file browsers, so i didn't think I was asking anything particularly out of the ordinary.
Regarding ringtones, yeah I used to always restore all my favorite ones to whatever new rom I was using, but after flashing enough roms, I'm too lazy for that any more. Now I just ask the devs to include them

A longer, more convoluted way, I suppose, is grab one of the optional bars listed in the second post - which have white clock/black bar by default.
Then take the framework.res from that, recook it in the kitchen, and you should be good to go.
Again, not exactly efficient, but I'd imagine it'd work just fine.
As it stands, it's a good solid Froyo rom, and always will be. It's so minimal, by design, how much can I really change.
Harmonia is like a rock. Very solid.
I do still want those last two items though.
Yes, it makes for the need to go to the Market, but at the same time, what if the file browser I include isn't liked by you? Then you are stuck with it. This rom is meant to be a bare minimum Froyo with a few tweaks. This means nothing is wasted or put there that you don't want.
2. Check the second post, there is a flasher for putting the ringtones back in, as well as a zip file of them to place them on your SDcard if you wish.
