  • Root
  • Custom recovery
  • ZVH Radio
[/TIP]

[INFO]Instructions for installing:
  1. Download ROM from droiddoctors hosting!
  2. Place on root of sdcard
  3. Boot into recovery
  4. Wipe: system, cache, data, dalvik cache (everything)
  5. Flash Debug-FormatSystem.zip

  8. (RECOMMENDED and optional) To remove the sprint IQ files:
    • After you have booted the phone completely, complete these steps:
    • Reboot into recovery
    • Flash this noIQ patch from jstntp
      NOTE: This will remove the rom's custom background. Download the original background from post #2 below. :)
[NOTE]
Advanced users:
DO NOT flash any files to try and enable apps 2 ext/sd, etc...!!
I believe this needed it's own thread, but I will start here with this.
I have integrated the DarkTremor a2sd script into the ROM to allow advanced functionality including dalvik-cache to cache (automatically upon flashing the ROM this is active) and apps store on the ext partition of an sd card. These features can be easily enabled and disabled from terminal (command prompt) or terminal emulator.

DO NOT USE THE GUI FROM THE MARKET!
Warning: The commands listed here take some amount of knowledge to understand. You must know what you are doing before you do it! If you experience data loss or more serious problems as a result of these commands, I am not responsible. Use this at your own risk. If this worries you, do not attempt this as the ROM works perfectly fine as it is. These commands are meant to extend the functionality and storage space utilized by the system.
DO NOT USE THE GUI FROM THE MARKET!

On to the explanations. THE ONLY TWO THINGS WE WILL COVER ARE apps2sd and the dalvik2cache! DO NOT ATTEMPT ANYTHING ELSE! DO NOT USE THE GUI FROM THE MARKET!
Starting with dalvik to cache:
Since dalvik to cache is installed upon flashing the ROM, the command to remove it is (adb shell if using computer):
Code:
su
a2sd nocache
To add it back to the ROM enter (adb shell if using computer):
Code:
su
a2sd cachepart


Now, the (not really, but could possibly be) complicated part. :p apps2sd.
This will allow you to store all apps to the /sd-ext partition on the sdcard.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANYTHING BELOW THIS LINE, BE SURE YOU HAVE A PARTITION ON YOUR SDCARD AND IT IS FORMATTED TO EXT(2, 3, or 4)
If you do not follow the prerequisite above, do not report problems.
Make sure to bakup sdcard if you want your contents. Then partition the sdcard under advanced settings. Select your desired size. Select 0MB for swap. Once that is done and while still in recovery, enter the following commands (this will format to ext4):
Code:
mke2fs -m0 -b4096 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
e2fsck -yf /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
Once you know that you have an sd-ext partition (the steps above) you can execute the correct command to move all apps to that partition (this may be used in conjunction with dalvik2cache commands above).
Make sure you are completely booted into the Android OS (your phone is on and not in recovery).
From terminal (command prompt) or terminal emulator: to enable apps2sd (adb shell if using computer):
Code:
su
a2sd reinstall
To move all apps back to the internal memory (adb shell if using computer):
Code:
su
a2sd remove

Re: [ROM] Opti-ROM

Be nice if a tweak can make the native Wi-Fi tethering work again...
Also, any chance for a percentage battery icon?

Re: [ROM] Opti-ROM

Any chance of getting a wifi tether app that supports infrastructure mode or am I missing something in the options? The wifi tether 3 beta wont work I just get errors.


Otherwise working great.


UPDATE Got wifi tether 3 working : had to enable mss clamping and it worked.

Right now what works is the app that we have included. If it isn't working, make sure you followed the instructions properly.
