I’ve just made a new HoFo Ion ROM, which is based on nk02‘s modification’s. The Ion ROM is a special ROM that was given to developers by Google – it is the fastest Android ROM out there now. The best part about this ROM for Rogers users is that there is no time stamp issue in this ROM. Other than the speed, don’t expect anything special. One thing that you will notice is that you will not have an “H” in your status bar when using 3G HSPA data, but your Magic is in fact transferring data at HSPA speeds.
Here are some of the changes that I’ve made to nk02′s lite version:
Sipdroid allows you to use Android phone with almost any SIP provider. The calls are crystal clear even over a 3G network, likewise for a WLAN connection. The best part about Sipdroid is that it integrates into your phone, eliminating the need for a separate phone book. You simply use your Android contacts in the same way as if you were making a call over a cellular network. It’s really an amazing application that is stable and simple to use, with the potential to save you plenty of money.
Today I have created a new ROM for the HoFo community in the hope that it will be used as a seed for further development. All of the other ROM’s that I have tried had missing features or they were extremely buggy and power hungry. This ROM is based on the orginal Rogers ROM, so everything works and it is stable as the original. Enjoy!
