[ROM] DamageControl v2.07.2 | Now with DCUpdater/More Optimized | Android 2.1
DamageControl v2.07.2 - Now with DCUpdater/LiveWallpapers in Sense!
This ROM is based off of the NEWEST Sprint leak - which is only available to those to whom I have given access to (currently one or two other developers). This leak will likely be the final released by Sprint, but they have yet to approve it and call it final.
About the ROM:
This ROM will never be a ROM that is focused on customizations, but more on speed and reliability. I figure that anybody can add whatever mods or themes they want to the ROM and release what they want. I am more focused on providing something solid.
There are a few customized applications that come with this ROM, including DCUpdater (based on CM-updater), from which you can check for the latest updates to the ROM and download them OTA. Take note that these apps can be removed, however they were put in the /system/app directory, so you will likely have to remount as r/w before you remove them.
DCUpdater will allow me to release smaller releases in the future that will improve performance and stability, so you can always be sure that your phone is up-to-date with the latest that there is! It comes with dozens of features, all of which I cannot document here.
It should also be noted that I will experimentally start supporting other ROMs based upon mine, by providing them with support and many of the same applications that are in my ROM to them, customized to their ROM. A separate thread will be created about this. However, if you are interested, please contact me via PM. Those with themes that work with my ROM can also PM me as these will also be distributed through this app. ROM developers who base their ROMs off of mine will also get free space on my servers as well as a few more added benefits, such as special access to early releases and other added benefits (a big one is coming in the next few weeks!). Again, this is experimental, but if you are interested, please contact me. You will notice ROMs starting to appear in a week or so with these options.
This release was focused primarily on getting DCUpdater up and out there. Also, to save some of you time, DCUpdater will NOT work on any previous ROMs of mine, or on other ROMs.
You will notice that DCUpdater has an 'Experimental' option - this will be used for beta releases and for releases that will break functionality on your phone. Otherwise, everything can be downloaded and it will not require a wipe unless specified in the change log (which you can also see in DCUpdater).
This ROM also includes a program that will allow you to send bugs straight to me. This will allow me to find problems and fix them as quickly as possible, as well as a way for you to get personal support from me. This app is simply named 'Send Bug Report'.
Note that if you are upgrading from 2.05 that this will not require a wipe. Again, this version was focused primarily on getting the apps out there and a market fix, since that's what the release was so badly missing. Because of the apps, however, I can release more ROMs, more rapidly, that are more stable and have less bugs. This will help me find the bugs I need and keep everyone up to date, which is why I think it is so vital.
However, if you want to remove any of the applications I have stuck in there, you can do it by using the following commands:
rm /system/app/dcupdaterapp.ui.apk (remove DCUpdater)
rm /system/app/logcollector.apk (remove Log Collector - required for Bug Reporter)
rm /system/app/BugReporter.apk (remove Report a Bug)
Special thanks goes to: avalaunchmods, gbhil, toast, flipz and regaw_leinad for their help with testing and other misc. stuff. Also super special thanks to that special someone! You know who you are!
