    "First HTC made MR1. MR1 was without form and void, and reboots were upon the Thunderbolt; and the Spirit of Godrynalyne was watching from above. And Godrynalyne said, "Let there be MR2.x radio support"; and there was. And Godrynalyne saw that the MR2.x radios were good; "

    --Totally kidding. Just playing on all the trolls out there that say I have a God complex. Clearly, I do not, and yes, above may be construed as blasphemy. Please take it in stride, as tongue-in-cheek. I am a God fearing man, and am just messing with the trolls. /me hides from lightning strikes

    The das BAMF Froyo team is comprised of Trident, ThatDudeButch, and Adrynalyne. Thats not to minimize how many folks actually contribute to this project. We thank you ALL. Without you, we are nothing.

    Presenting... das BAMF 1.8.6! (Experimental, MR2.x Radio Support)




    Features of 1.6

    • 1.13.605.7 base
    • Debloated, which includes vzw framework, apps, games, libs, and permissions.
    • Tweaked filesystem and minfree.
    • Zipaligned (just once, not every boot, sorry), and deodexed. Odex and deodex perform the same after the first boot, when deodex roms get....odexed. This is merely to save space in /system and make tweaking easier.
    • Added Google Car Home, removed HTC car app.
    • HTC Hub and htcsense.com are partially working.
    • Removed Stocks widget, and app. Google has better apps for this anyway.
    • Superuser is fixed with rmk40's version, woot woot!
    • Our own busybox, version 1.19
    • Profile added to system/bin to help prevent certain malware.
    • Kernel has init.d support, as well as adb root, and usb debugging enabled on every boot (even from a wipe). Many optmizations, tun, cifs, nfs support. Overclocks to 1.5ghz. Undervolted from 1ghz and down. Stock voltage at 1.19, slightly overvolted past that.
    • Kernel will boot at 1036mhz! You must use setcpu to overclock, the kernel will not do it for you automatically.
    • Dusk theme from HTC Skin - "Dusk" Sense 2.5 (Z based ROMs) - xda-developers
    • No location indicator, thanks Bgill55!
    • No recent apps on notification bar. Inspired by http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1004975, using 1.12.605.9 framework, which appears to have quite a few fixes, at least in xml.

    There are three flavors. This list above applies particularly to the NTE (non themed edition).

    NTE: Fully featured, but does not contain very many theme elements, and very little modification to Rosie (the launcher).
    Remix: Fully featured, plus additional theme elements and graphical tweaks.
    Stripped: Fully featured, plus many additional theme elements found in the Remix edition, debloated, and desensed.

    This ROM requires the use of a GB or MR2.x radio.

    I also recommend a data wipe with this version.


    Clockwork Recovery
    Knowledge of adb

    Knowledge of fastboot
    Knowledge of adb (required for support)
    Knowledge of logcats
    An abundance of patience
    A good humor

    my daughter
    dsb9938 especially, for all the help with the thread rewrite and images.


    Patches (flash in recovery):

    Disable wake on volume

    Stock transitions and animations

    Final notes:

    -Having issues with Gmail crashing? Please clear data and cache under Settings > Manage Applications > Gmail

    -Unexpected closing of browser is usually due to missing Flash

    -Call Recorder app will record every call unless you disable it in the Call Recording settings

    -If Call Recorder app does not start, disable call recording box, then re-enable it

    -It may be ilegal in some states to record both sides of the conversation. Please observe local and state laws.

    -Please don't ask me if you need to wipe. You do not need to wipe, unless you have problems. Thats my story and I am sticking to it. Do i recommend it? Yes. Do I require it? No.


    Like what we've done? Help keep us going with coffee and beer (mostly beer)! All support is greatly appreciated.

    Looking good! Can't believe how little traffic this thread is getting. By the way I think you have a typo, you put "features of1.8.5" twice. Not a big deal but people might get confused.

    Thanks Adrynalyne, I am running the BAMF 3.0 RC4 now and really liking all your work. I am considering trying this one too.

    One bug I have noticed is that when I have it plugged in (stay awake is enabled) and the screen dims, when I touch it to bring back full brightness it only brightens part way. If I lock screen, then unlock it comes back full brightness.
    Otherwise I am loving the Das BAMF, still seeing random reboots, but not nearly as bad as it was stock.

    Are there any specific "advantages" to the MR2 radio?

    I tried BAMF 2.1 for about 72 hours, but had to give up on it because I was not happy with the radio at all (I did like the Sense 3.0 elements though!).

    I'm having such a great experience with BAMF 1.8 and the MR1 radio that I'm hesitant to switch...
