Custom ROM Friday: JRummy’s FRF83 Froyo ROM

This isn’t necessarily a “theme” but it is one of the first “from source” ROMs to be built now that the official Froyo (FRF83) source code has been released.  And seeing as it’s from JRummy, you know we’re going to show support.

This is as stock as it comes, but includes root, busybox and the new Froyo Google apps.  Don’t expect any specific color schemes yet, although I’m sure they are just around the corner.

Check out the stock kernel benchies…

Download: generic_sholes-ota-eng.jrummy.zip

Update: Apparently this is already in ROM Manager.  Feel free to load through there as we have done a million times in the past.  (Cheers Ace)
