This is a Hybrid AOSP-Like Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM. Completely build from source based on AOSP source code from Google and CM7 source code from CyanogenMod.
(Notice: From version 1.2.7 and beyond, all CyanogenMod's Apache 2.0 Licenses will be displayed under Settings->About Phone->Legal Information->CyanogenMod Licenses to comply with their Apache License 2.0)


There are a few reasons I created this build:

1. I want to see if I can built a ROM project from source
2. An alternative AOSP ROM that's a little different from CM7.

Updates for this ROM will NOT be very FAST or FREQUENT due to my LACK OF TIME...

(I WON'T BE taking FEATURE REQUESTS and such, most can be added by yourself from various mods found in the Theme and Apps sub forum)


So what is in this version right now...

1. Completely build from source based on Gingerbread 2.3.5 and CM 7.x.x
2. Use my latest GB kernel (CFS Low Voltage with BFS-like tweaks)
3. No Google Apps included at all... You need to use the GAPPS zip file from CM7
4. Rooted (of course :D )
5. Deodexed all /system/apps and framework files
6. Dalvik memory boosted from default 24MB to 36MB
7. Added WiFi Calling

I want to [Thank] the following:

Cyanogen for inspiring me to build a project such as this from scratch...
Zinx Verituse for his amazing hacking skillz and support for Glacier...
Rest of CyanogenMod Team without them, none of this would be possible...
CodeAuroraForum (AKA CAF) with their Android Enablement Project providing latest fixes and patches for Android AOSP...
T-Mobile for creating a theme engine for easy update of themes...
RootzWiki Community for the support and the community spirit...

[News Bulletin]:

Version 1.3.1 is OUT! Introducing SparePartsToo :D

Send a note to XDA to get my RD Status back ;)

[ Bugs/Incompatibilities ]:

None So far...

[ GEEK TALK BELOW ]:

[ What Major components are there in AOSP? ]

Bionic - core kernel / low level hardware interaction portion. CM7 team hacked this portion along with patches from CAF to work with our current HW and kernel, so there's nothing to rollback to. There's only bug fixes and driver updates to do for this portion. When real Gingerbread Kernel for our phone is available, this part will be updated heavily...

Dalvik - Google's Java Virtual Machine. CM7 team added support for ARM v6 with patches from CAF to this. Our phone is already supported by the default Dalvik, so this is identical to AOSP.

External - This is a collection of helper utilities and libraries needed by Android (like graphic libraries, open vpn etc). Again CM7 team hacked this with patches from CAF to work with our hardware, so again, nothing to rollback to. Only bug fixes and updates.

Hardware - Additional User Space Hardware drivers not covered by kernel such as GPS, Radio Interface, Video, etc... Again, CM7 team added support for our phone with patches from CAF, so nothing to rollback too. Only bug fixes and updates. When real GB kernel is available for our phone, this part will be updated accordingly.

Libcore - Core libraries such as SQL-Lite3, Dalvik and other essential libraries. This is already 100% AOSP.

System - System Services like Wireless AP, Volume Daemon, Logcat, ADB, Fastboot etc... Again, CM7 made it work with our phone with patches from CAF, so nothing to rollback to. Only updates and bug fixes.

Packages - Built-in Apps. This where quite a bit of CM7 customization took place. I have already ROLLED BACK this entire folder to 100% AOSP.

Lastly, the hardest part :D

Framework - This folder also contained heavy CM7 customization. This portion is NOT easy to ROLL BACK. The framework is HIGHLY INTEGRATED, if NOT CAREFUL, 1 mistake can bootloop the whole system (I have experienced a few already). I have ROLLED BACK quite a bit of code back to AOSP, ie CM7 tablet tweaks, System UI, Lock Screen etc (highlighted in Magenta in my version history).

So as you can see from above, CM7 is NOT TOO FAR from AOSP. All I am doing is making it more AOSP :D Sometimes it pains me to remove nice features added by CM7 to make AOSP more useful...

[ToDo]:

Make it even more stable and speedier!

Great ROM, seems incredibly clean and stable. Just wondering, is it me, or is the pull-down notification empty? There are no toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, rotation, sound, etc. One of the reasons I am liking the Android platform over iOS is the quick ease of toggling these features, and I don't see anywhere to reenable or configure to put these back in this particular ROM. Thanks in advance!

I've been wondering about that too, it's one of the reasons I haven't left cm7 yet.
