    to revert back to CWM 5.0.2.7, reboot recovery, then restore that backup you made in Step 1.


    Big thanks goes out to:
    PlayfulGod, ShabbyPenguin, Requisite0, and most others at irc.irondust.net/#admire for their ears in my senseless bantering about mostly nonsense and jibberjabber. Thanks goes out to KageBeast for his help in testing out my MetroPCS fixes.








    ROM FILES

    Download CWM 5.0.28






    Download OpenAndroid 2.3.20 ROM






    Download OA-MPCS-MMS-Config-FIX.zip







    EQ Settings Mod
    My EQ Mods are no longer compatible with the new build -- they make no difference in sound.
    BUT,
    I have been working on modifying Beats Audio for the R720, and so far I have yet to crash any DSP manager I've installed.
    People are welcome to try it, but be forwarned, there is no revert method yet!! So if you decide you dont like it, then you'll have to reflash the ROM, or restore from a backup.

    Download OA-EQ-Boost-[Beats MOD-R720]-Spz0.zip

    Spz0, how can Facebook and YouTube best be removed? Trying to free up some internal storage here. Your ROM works great; this device's low storage availability simply resists all efforts at making it perfectly usable...

    fb ane yt are both installed as system apps, so should not affect the userspace on /data unless you have updated them (all updated system apps default to /data). You can do one of 2 things: uninstall the updates through the application manager then use root uninstaller to uninstall them from /system: or: download link2SD and partition your sdcard through CWM (backup card first as it erases everything to partition). Then reboot and load up L2SD - set your partition (recommend ext4), reboot, then start moving your /data apps to the ext4 partition on your sdcard. There _is_ also an option in L2SD to "integrate to /system", which will well, integrate the app to system, or the update, whatever. Just longpress the app you want o move, and the option will be there in the popup.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks, Spz0! I'm going to be purchasing a new microSD card, partitioning it as ext4, and then flashing your ROM again. Once that's done I'm going to get rid of Facebook and YouTube following your instructions here.

    Great rom, I finally have it themed and tweeked just the way I want it. There is one small annoyance and that is the ability to remount via adb. All other adb commands work and I can remount in shell but not via regular adb. Which renders apk tool and sdk useless for the most part. The build prop is right for adb support so I'm stumped as to why its not working. Any help would be appreciated.
