This is the official new thread for the SkyRaider Sense. The current release is 4.2. There a lot of changes so please read the change log.​

--==--​

Disclaimer:
Please do not publicly release versions of my work without my prior approval.​

The next version of this ROM has significant improvements over 3.5. Enhancements from CM7 (thanks to the entire CM team for awesome features and a great ROM) and Sense 2.0 will be included to enrich your experience. There are also custom features that were developed during the beta that are completely unique to this ROM. You will not find them anywhere else. My goal is to create a completely original and stable ROM to make using your phone more enjoyable.

--==--

This ROM was heavily tested by a group people for months. I went through several different builds to refine the ROM and provide the best possible experience. I spent countless hours coding and debugging to bring these awesome features in a fully working ROM. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

The links to download are in the second post and in Rom Manager. Don't forget to press the Thanks button!

The ROM install works with both Amon_Ra and Clockworkmod recoveries and is cwm 3.0+ compatible. For the time being, flashing mods over this ROM (other than what you find here) is done at your own risk. I do not guarantee any will work. Themes will be available here. If you want to experiment, be my guest. Just remember to backup your data.

WARNING: I am not responsible for any damage that may happen directly or indirectly to your phone as a result of flashing this ROM. Thank you for taking a risk and flashing my ROM! :D

When using Titanium restore applications ONLY and no SYSTEM DATA!!

Directions for link:
  • Download the ROM from the link below
  • Place it on your sd card
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Do a nandroid backup
  • Perform a full wipe
  • Select "install zip from sdcard"
  • Select the file and you're on your way to happiness
Directions for ROM Manager:
  1. Download ROM from ROM Manager under Ihtfp69
  2. When it finishes, select both options (wipe and backup)
  3. Rom Manager will reboot and install what you have chosen
  4. Profit!
Directions for Web Connect:
  1. Setup Web Connect in ROM Manager Premium
  2. Open ROM Manager, press Menu>Web Connect
  3. Once it says successful, you are ready to go
  4. Click the phone icon next to the link below and your phone will start downloading it
  5. Profit!

v4.2 --> SkyRaider_42_FullRelease.zip



MD5: cba118b109b138128fc3d99454eac1c1

IMPORTANT: If upgrading from 4.1, you can opt to download the upgrade patch in lieu of the full ROM. If you are upgrading from 4.0, download the full rom and flash without wiping. Just make sure to uninstall wireless tether and adobe flash if you do not wipe.
Upgrade Patch: SkyRaider_42_upgradepatch.zip

Addons
NOTE: Your launcher may restart about 8 times after installing this add-on
Included:


  • Coinflip
  • Day Challenge
  • Dice
  • Note
  • Sand Timer
  • Tip Calculator
  • Today In History
  • Word of the Day

Hey there ihtfp69! I'm rocking a Thunderbolt (proud BAMF user) and am going to help my brother root his Incredible tomorrow. I've downloaded all the different drivers, the unrevoked reflash tool, etc. and I also grabbed a copy of this ROM, as I've heard from many many people that it was their favorite and a great combination or speed, stability and various options/tweaks. I'm wondering if I have to do anything else once I have him rooted with s-off and CWM installed? Mostly, I'm wondering if there has to be any kind of new radio flashed to use this. I'm assuming that isn't the case but wanted to check to make sure. I'm pretty sure you would mention that somewhere in the post if it was required. Also, does this ROM include a custom overclockable kernel? TIA!

You should be fine unless your brother's phone has an old radio version 1.x. The release radio that came with froyo should be fine.

Anyone experience an issue where there is an activity spinner constantly spinning next to the Wifi/3G icon?

This icon remains visible after multiple reboots & I've verified that it "appears" as though nothing is syncing still under "Accounts & Sync". Ideas?

Check your accounts & sync page of your settings, i know flickr used to have the issue of constantly syncing, disable one at a time and see if it is fixed. It might not show that's its syncing on that page.

Your other option would be to force close application by application until it stops in the application manager

ihtfp69... I am glad to see you on here! Thank you for my favorite ROM ever! I started out with SR and tried every other one out there, but now I am back with 4.2 Just a couple quick questions. Do you recommend Go Launcher? I really like that particular home replacement but I cant get it to stick as default. The application settings show it as default but I am constantly prompted to select it or SR launcher when I hit the home key. Also get some random momentary screen sticking, lock screen sticking and other minor but annoying issues that are similar. I flashed 4.2 over 4.1. I haven't messed with the kernel, but I did flash one of your boot animations from Rom Manager.

If you have any ideas I'd love to get this thing rocking! I'm definitely on board with throwing a donation your way as well!

Well in the societal imposed rat race we are suppose to call life, yes...
Don't get me wrong I am love my Inc, especially with SkyRaider, the ROM my Inc. has run most of it's life!
But I have seen the beginnings of exodus to other phones 3+ months ago already,
and expect that by it's 2yr B-Day pickin's will be slim...
I will be keeping mine till my contract is up less than a year from now, but expect to have another phone before then.
That way I can use my Inc. to do some deeper Android learning without missing those important calls and messages, my wife will like that ;)
I apologize if you or anyone was offended, I didn't mean too, this phone is solid!

I installed the app and the screen off animation does not function with the power button. I activated the permissions in the app, and it works when I run it from the app drawer. The phone has rebooted 3 times as well as re installing twice. Also, all window animations are showing. Any ideas?

Great ROMs by the way. It's all I've used for the past year.

-Mooney

Edit: I re wiped everything: dalvik, cache, and 'system restore'. Re-installed Skyraider 4.2 and Screen Off and Lock, restarted phone and the app asked for the permissions which I gave it. The app is still not mapped to the power button. Anything else I can do?

Flickr is not even installed or set up on her phone. All that is set up is Facebook, Google accounts (obviously ;) ) and her Exchange (work) email.

Haven't gone through disabling each one but it also does the save thing on a friends Dinc that I also set up the same way (except he also has Twitter and Flickr accounts added.)

Found out it's the Facebook for HTC Sense app. Force closing it removes the icon but it comes back shortly afterwards :(

Side note...using Chad's Sense kernel & radio 11.19.

I can't seem to get any ROM to flash other than CM7 (which I am totally annoyed with). I have now downloaded Virtuos, MIUI, and Skyraider 4.2 all from Rom Manager and each time they have loaded it just boot loops. I was really looking forward to trying SR and hoping it would work for me and be a daily driver. Anybody else having this problem or am I just SOL with flashing? Should I be wiping system data? I only chose wipe dalvik and to backup existing rom, could that be the problem I'm having?
