First AOSP 2.3.5 ROMs Appearing
XDA member AdamG has posted the first AOSP 2.3.5 ROM. It is not full AOSP as it has a few bugfixes incorporated as well as a few added features and a minimalist approach with the included apps.
Some of the more notable features include:
- The ability to download any file type;
- SIP calling over 3G built in;
- The ability to sync your facebook contacts;
- An advanced power menu including screenshot options.
As usual, this ROM requires a full wipe before flashing and all of the usual disclaimers apply. This ROM is still also in the testing stages so expect a few bugs but it seems to be pretty solid as-is.
If you want to check out AOSP 2.3.5 as it should be, barring some dissenting opinions regarding facebook, then give this one a look. It’s already stable enough to be a daily-driver and this should be a step up from your old ROM, and definitely a step in the right direction.
You can find more information in the rom thread.

If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?
If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
