[ROM] Harmonia 1.9 Froyo (Aphrodite+Picasticks) 12June12
Harmonia, daughter of Aphrodite, is the immortal goddess of harmony and concord.
This is the love child of the Aphrodite Rom series and Picasticks' Kernel, like any child she a mixture of her parents, we (Picasticks and I) took the best parts of the Aphrodite roms and mated it to the Picasticks kernel, the result is Harmonia. Being the next generation, I felt it deserved a next generational name.
About the Aphrodite Family:
The idea is pretty much a bare rom, based on the stock rom, but with updates/tweaks/and things that should have been included but weren't, that you add your themes and such to, You won't find any bloat, what is here is here because it needs to be and not much more. I do provide some theming elements and extras (see post #2) however they are optional. This allows you to create the phone you want without anything you don't want or need. Just a lean, mean phone, your way.
Options are in post #2
While I do all I can to ensure these work properly, but things do happen, so use it at your own risk.
Latest Download and Install:
If you are not running an older version, in recovery, make sure to "Wipe data/factory reset" and in advanced, "wipe Dalvik Cache".
This is highly recommended for all to avoid problems.

The Activate shortcut auto deletes from the desktop on first boot, this
This will take up to 5 minutes to boot the first time, sit back and enjoy the
Double check your ringtones if you restore that info as they have changed.
Important Google apps info:
Many are removed, however those that pose installation issues
(Search) or config hassles (Gmail auto-sync) have been left in.
No wasted space or the need to wait for updates.
The only Google apps included are Gmail, mail, market search and voice dialer and search, all of which are up to date.
If you want Maps, install Maps, if you Street View, install Street View, etc.. If it is easily grabbed from the market, I removed it. Maps and a few other things are available as flashable zips to restore them, see post 2.
CPU overclock recommended settings:
I wouldn't recommend going below 400mhz, we are finding it
simply isn't efficient. If you tend to just listen to music and surf,
400 should be your baseline. Those who use navigation, play
videos and/or Angry Birds, you may find 600 better as a minimum.
If you find your phone getting warm during use, raising the
baseline may actually help. No, I did not write that backwards,
it's due to how the processor works. See this thread for more information:
I owe a great deal to Picasticks, BigSuperSquid, Obijohn, RevolutionRed, Takenover83, Mmmark111 and Marzz, be it directly or indirectly, this rom wouldn't be here or as good without them all.
