Q&A Section:
Q: What do I need to be running first to flash eclipse?

A: You will have to be on a rooted version of gingerbread before hand

Q: How do I install Eclipse?
1. sbf to 234
2. Root using MotorolaOneclick
3. Install Voodoo OTA rootkeeper and protect root but temp unroot
4. Apply 235 update in stock recovery
5. Restore root in Voodoo rootkeeper and delete backup (make sure root is restored before deleting!)
6. Install bootstrap
7. Reboot into bootstrap recovery
8. Wipe data
9. Flash eclipse
10. Profit from its beauty

Q: I am geting force closes and other weird stuff
A: It is highly recommended to wipe data each time you flash eclipse. If the problem persists I would re-download the rom, wipe data and flash again.

Q. My wifi isn't working
A. You MUST be on the latest OTA 2.3.5, 418 build first...

Download Eclipse v2.3 :

Other Downloads:
Download non-inverted calendar (not flashable):

For you GO Launcher users out there I have a matching theme you can download from the market. When using the theme make sure you open launcher Preferences -> Visual Settings -> Icons -> Theme Icon and change it to default style to remove the weird background on the images.

You must be on the latest 2.3.5 build prior to flashing this due to no kernel being included!!!!! You can flash v2.3 on top of v2.2.1. If you have issues just wipe data.
Dock will force close on first use. Select "Clock" on first dock and it will default to it and no longer force close. Need to set this as default.
Wiping Data is recommended
You do not need to install previous versions first. Just flash the latest version. If you flash a theme not designed for 2.3 nyan cats will die.

Sounds interesting, Will try Once it has more mods, can't wait and good work!

Tried out the 0.2.1, it was smooth, But it didn't have any blur apps which i needed for daily-use, which is a bullsh-t excuse on my end, will try it out soon again, Good Job Nitro :D

Thanks for removing backup assistant :angry:

Going back to 2.2 until this is straightened out.
Backup assistant will not be back in any future releases. I recommend using google to back up your contacts.

Ban-Hammer... way to lurk until you have something negative to say with your first post. How about.. thanks for the ROM man. I know you put a lot of hours into it for FREE and I really appreciate your effort.

Great work Nitro, this rom kills. I went from 0.2.2 to 0.4 and have had zero issues. I was always partial to ADW so I think its sick that this is your launcher of choice, and your theme is tight as well.
