It has been quite some time since I released my DX ROM’s … and this time is a big change, it is now built from source! The base (as are my OG Droid ROM’s) is AOSP/CM7, with my own custom coding. So if you are familiar with SS, this will look the same.
Credit goes out to the entire CM team, cvpcs, and TBH for their part in making this happen. There are others I’m sure, this is meant as a collective credit.
Each release I do, I will rotate my ‘primary’ site that I post on, and that is the one I will support from. Some of you may not like registering for these other sites – but I cannot support you all on multiple sites with each launch. I hope you can understand that the exposure on multiple sites is good for me, and that the five minutes it takes to register on these 2-3 other sites is worth your time and effort. Given that I spend many many hours on a release, I don’t think it is too much to ask
1. 2.3.340 is a prerequisite. If you are not currently running that version (ie. if you are running Liberty) you will NEED TO INSTALL SSX-prep.zip first. I’ve built this process (using TBH’s all-in-one installer) so that you do not have to SBF to install my ROM.
. Initially I stated if coming from CM, you would not have to wipe – I am stepping back on that. Do a factory data
wipe. .cache. .dalvik…battery
stats. .then flash it. .. you SHOULD be able to restore just apps/data through Tibu – just NO SYSTEM stuff.
3. If you have to install the prep file – you will likely get a radio error. Ignore, and continue to install SSX-GB-2.0-update.zip
. Reboot into the ROM
. Reboot into recovery again, and re-install the prep zip. This time you will get no errors, and you should be good to go. If you happen to install my ROM and exit recovery, having not installed the prep file – you WILL
have to SBF.
Once SSX is installed, DO NOT use any of the bootstrappers (DX/D2). You will have to SBF if you do. Reboot
into recovery will be done via the normal power button.5.
Installing this ROM will automatically wipe system/data/cache – however, it seems to be hit and miss – see point #2!!
6. Apparently recent versions of Droid Overclock (by jrummy) are causing reboots. I have been told that version 2.1.7 works just fine 🙂
If you want to go back to any other ROM – follow their instructions, which likely will involve an SBF install.This is BETA
– so if you encounter issues, please post up here so that I can support you best.Launchers – ADW and Sony are included. A few other things that are included – Google Apps, including Maps and Street View. Also included – aLogcat and QuickPic.Things I know that do not work:
Unlike other CM7/AOSP Rom’s, Torch actually works!
That is it, as far as I know! I believe you will find this very fast and fluid – I have
