Hey man, I tried 2 of your DF Custom ROMs.
I haven't got either to work properly, my bootloader is unlocked. Here's the problems I've had (you have already given the fix for some, but it's easier to just note them all out and put what the problem was, that way if others haven't seen it, it may help them too)
One of them, I got an error (7). This was fixed when I flashed the ICS Beta, although when my phone loaded, it had nothing on the home screen, I couldn't get into the menu and only had the notification bar.
One forces loop, even with a custom kernel, this happens on both 2.3.3 and the ICS Beta.
Another problem I've had is it bricks (first splash) and I have to flash it with flashtool.
Like I said, I have an unlocked bootloader, ability to flash firmwares and kernels, but this still doesn't work for me, anything you might be able to help with?
I'm an r800at user
EDIT:Got it working now. Just about to reinstall CWM and use the format system/data installation.
EDIT2:3G isn't working. I'm not a dev but will try to look for some way to fix this.
