Original OP:


Since me, Eddeh, and YayBo all have Droids and Cez just picked up a MyTouch I figured FIWDIL and create a thread. IDGAF what you want to talk about/ask. Apps, rooting, new phones, iphones suck, watevah. :high5:

Right now I'm debating on whether I want to root my phone and flash a new ROM onto it. If I do, I can use wifi tether (phone = wifi hotspot), badass sexy themes, overclock the cpu for powah, get newer versions of the gallery, browser, etc with pinch-zoom.

There is an app that makes it really easy for the Droid but its $5 and installs an old ROM. If I wait a couple days it is supposed to be free and use their newest ROM. :hmm: So either I be impatient, pay $5, and reflash in a few days or wait and get the newest one right away...

I said FI and IDIL :pepper: black theme be sexxxxeh :D

Need to work out some little issues and might reflash with a different ROM but I've installed a recovery thing so I shouldn't fuck anything up now :rofl2:

Cez, if you can't get used to the keyboard, try this: (might have to register to see it)

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 08:42 AM

omg you did it afterall? You haz to show me how to do it wey! I wanna see screen shawts too. Did you pay the $5?

JayBo 02-04-2010 02:45 PM

You reflashed????

stonehenge 02-04-2010 02:50 PM

I flashed :humping:. Too poh/sheep to pay $5 tho. The app just runs commands and shit that you can do using free stuff. Basically you put a file on your sdcard, restart while holding a key on the keyboard, and that flashes that file to your phone and roots it (gives you more powah). Then you put some other files on the sdcard and run some commands in a terminal window (like neo with the white rabbit wey). Then you put the ROM on your sdcard and restart holding the key again and flash it.

Took me a while because I did it very slow so I didn't fuck up a command or anything. Also, there are 2 ways of flashing a ROM. One is where you flash over your existing stuff and it keeps your apps, all the info for them, settings, etc. Or you can wipe and install a ROM. I was lazy and flashed over my existing shit which apparently makes some things not work right :roflmao: Well not that anything is buggy or malfunctioning but like one feature of this ROM is "removed camera shutter sound" but on mine its still there because I flashed over an existing install. So I think I might go through and backup my apps and whatnot and then wipe/flash again.

These are the "specs" for the ROM I installed (Bugless Beast 4.7):


-2.1 Keyboard with Voice Input (credit to Berzerker)
-2.1 Maps App MultiTouch, Night Mode

-Minimum Brightness Tweak (credit to xeudoxus)
-HQ Video Recording Tweak (credit to Fede)
-HQ YouTube Default Tweak (credit to xeudoxus)
-Longer Duration Between Wifi Scans Tweak *Battery Saver* (credit to Pete)
-Default Droid "hidden" wallpaper (credit to Pete)
-Droid notification sound as ringtone (credit to Pete)
-Version Information In Settings > About Phone
-G1 IM App Works On Wifi & Data (credit to Zappletoo)
-Completely Deodexed System (credit to Speeddymon)
-Overclocked Kernel (credit to tasmanian_droid)
-Clock CPU to 125MHz, 250MHz, 550MHz, 800MHz, 950MHz
-Wireless Tethering
-Disabled OTA Updates
-Flash Image

-LatinIME apk & odex (aka 2.0.1 Keyboard)
-Visual Voicemail apk (download from the Market)
-Facebook (download from the Market)
-Amazon MP3
-HTMLViewer apk & odex
-Camera Shutter Sound (credit to Pete)
-Video Recording Sound
-30 Broken .jpg wallpapers that were left in Launcher.apk (reduction of .52mb)
Installed the CPU overclocking app as well. It will now run at 800mhz when I'm actively using it. Otherwise if it is in standy and working it will go at stock speed. If it isn't doing anything it can drop down to as low as 125mhz so I might see a little battery improvement, we'll see.

Oh...I saw "Android Thread" and that's what I was thinking.

Or this:

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 04:37 PM

Have you tried the wireless tethering?

JayBo 02-04-2010 04:37 PM

No, this ROM didn't include it (but it is enabled, I just need to install it) so I haven't tried yet. I might soon though, my lil mac mini has wifi to try :hmm:

So was I. But the first thing you do after rooting is install a recovery image in the recovery partition and then make a backup of your current ROM. So its actually pretty hard to screw up after you've finished that.

JayBo 02-04-2010 04:54 PM

how much space on the phone does this eat up?

Dunno, I didn't check before/after :/

JayBo 02-04-2010 05:00 PM


Do it now!

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:05 PM

rofl how am i supposed to check before? I can tell you how much free memory I have but I have a LOT of apps installed so its not a very good indication :rofl2:

JayBo 02-04-2010 05:08 PM

Ohhhhy yeah.

You need to keep better records.

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 05:11 PM

I can shek when I do mine :shrug:

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:12 PM

I'm going to wipe/erase eventually (probably today sometime) so after that I'll let you know how much memory it takes. But there are several different ROMs you can flash. There is Bugless Beauty, Bugless Beast,, and others. Right now I am using Bugless Beast but I think when I redo it, I'm going to try, that one looks promising and has Wifi Tether built in.

Current Setup:

I'm LOVING the black taskbar/drawer/etc. And the overclocking seems to make everything just enough faster that things slide smoother and open a bit quicker. Not a huge ZOMG difference, but I can feel it. Maybe just my mind tho.

JayBo 02-04-2010 05:20 PM

I keep reading good things about Dolphin browser. I'm thinking of trying it out

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:27 PM

I didn't like it but some people love it. This rom includes pinch zoom on the browser. It works pretty damn good :imo

JayBo 02-04-2010 05:32 PM

I tried it. Was not impressed.

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:37 PM

:word: people just jizz over it because of pinch-zoom but as a browser I like the stock one much better

---------- Post added at 09:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:36 AM ----------

Mozilla has been working on a browser for a long time. It is called Fennec and it being written for a few platforms. Might be pretty damn nice whenever that comes out because FF = win.

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 05:40 PM

FF does = win...I just want pinche zoom like with preh...pero on OEM browser

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:42 PM

That's what comes with almost all ROMs. They took it from the european Droid (Milestone) which has PZ in browser, maps, and gallery.

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 05:46 PM

Im gonna need link tonight brah...wanna do this :pepper:

btw, my $1 taiwaneez micro usb no work with DROID

stonehenge 02-04-2010 05:47 PM

Gonna try the ROM. Apparently it gives you lots of options at the beginning before it installs. You can choose to install the PZ apps, remove facebook/amazon/visualvoicemail/etc, choose stock theme or smoked glass, etc. Sounds nice. Only problem is, you can only get the newest version of their ROM by donating $5 or waiting until tomorrow :pissedfist:

Evil IT ftl

It is just a 12v cig plug with a usb port on the back and a little led. Plug is black, not sure about led color and the led is off to the side I think. I have one similar in the Nizz and it charges the Droid using the stock cable or one I got from VZW (WAY overpriced)

2005_Silverado 02-04-2010 06:08 PM

DROID to the rescue...lemme check it out
