CURRENT VERSION UPLOADED: Darexius Firmware v0.0.5Do we have enough custom ROMs?I don't think so, no! Never! :pI've cooked my own ROM which is now at v0.0.5 and tested STABLE. Refer to the changelog when you decompress the file.http://darexiunism.com/Darexius.zipYou must have 7-zip to decompress the scripts archive. I've included it in the zip file. If you don't know what to do, I'll post instructions, though I hope I don't have to...This is basically just a very very stripped down ROM with nothing but basics. The next revision will be rooted. After that I'm going to start installing apps. After I get the ROM to where I want it to be in terms of what functionality I have control over, it's off to working on that pesky kernel decompile.Darexius FirmwareBuild 0.0.5NOTICE: For some reason I had to reboot after installing it. Keep that in mind. It asks for Root permissions then you have to reboot for it to work right...Also, AndAppStore has this thing about downloading updated repository info. It never shows me a progress bar, but if you go to Menu, More, Settings, and tik off Background Update, it works like a charm.Added AndAppStore, a task manager, and a terminal emulator. Also enabled 'su' for rooting the device.I DID NOT apply the updated firmware that Eken just provided (1.7.1) as it broke AndAppStore.Build 0.0.2Removed the following files from "data.tgzdata.tar.app":-com.cngphone.AnFetion2.apk-com.skype.android.lite.apk-com.zenpie.genialwriting.apk-com.chaozh.iReaderFree.apk-com.mp1.livorec.apk-msn.droid.im.apk-com.qq.android.apk-com.fring.apk-com.herocraft.game.farmfrenzylite.apk-souvey.musical.apk-com.haipk.market.apkRemoved the accompanying folders within "data.tgzdata.tar.data"Removed the accompanying entries from "data.tgzdata.tar.dalvik-cache"Removed the file for Tudo from "android_fs.tgzandroid_fs.tar.systemapp" (can't remember what it's called)Removed the accompanying icon entries from "data.tgzdata.tar.datacom.android.launcherdatabaseslauncher.db"Updated update.sh to reflect better grammar and to correct spelling mistakesBuild 0.0.1Took the original M001 Update Firmware and stripped bloatware. Didn't take any notes, so I will re-release with proper notations.

You know, the one that corrected the WiFi problem and rotation error, along with several other good changes.Also... I believe your ROM is removing several apps from the device. Are these useful, functional apps that some of us are going to miss, or is there a good reason you're taking them off? I only ask this because I'm still waiting on my eken to arrive (two and a half weeks after auction ended!!!!) and I'm not really familiar with what apps are included and what I will end-up finding valuable.Much thanks for your hard work on this project.

I also want to try to add appropriate wallpapers and stuff.We might have a new kernel in the next day or two.

This is a fork off of the original update and has yet to have any involvement from ECO, though I am interested in what he's done with his kernel modifications. The apps that I've removed were completely useless and what I would consider to absolute bloat ware. My objective is to slim the installation down, give you a decent app installer of sorts, and optimize the underlying kernel. I may at some point rebuild the framework using portions of 2.1, but that won't be for a while.Oh, did I mention we're researching bluetooth connectivity?Another EDIT: Looking into this right here -- http://forum.openhandsetdevelopers.com/running-android-market-on-emulator-no-download-issue-t82.html

I guess :pI'm having trouble with ConnectBot crashing when I make a profile... Any ideas? I copied the .apk over, but when I select "local" and type in a profile name it blows up on me. I usually pick "su" or "test"
