So as you probably know, I love SPR for its rom.tgz support. I decided to dive into it and start modding it, so I got the source from DroidMod.
The first thing I did was install my custom overclock kernel to get SPR running at 1.1ghz, which greatly sped up my ROM install routine. Next, I changed the colors to blue instead of orange. Then I got rid of the automatic backup function when installing a rom.tgz. (For my ROM this makes sense since one of the features is on the fly themeing from recovery - metamorph style). After that I made it accept arbitrary update.zip's by giving the user a selection of update.zips on the sdcard to install. I verified that it would accept unsigned update.zips. After these changes I added some functions to install arbitrary kernel and recovery images from recovery, in img format. I believe a kernel and ramdisk should be united, as mine are made for each other. If you install an anykernel package it will extract yiour current ramdisk and put it with a new kernel. I don't like this, so I changed it (NOTE: you can still install anykernel updater kernel packages if you wish). I did the same thing for recovery images. Finally, as you might expect, I spend a as LOT of time in recovery. This is the big one, with help from trevorj of DroidMod, I enabled battery charging while in recovery. He sent me a version of SPRecovery that he had reworked to include battery charging. The only problem was it required all kinds of alien technology to run. I had to install a squashfs image on my sdcard that this version of SPR used and contained all the extra functionality that I did not need or want (wifi, ubifs, squashfs, kernel modules like crazy). I isolated what charged the battery and stuck it in my recovery image, which is just a single img file or SBF for ease of use. Without trevorj, none of the charging stuff would be possible.
Coming soon. Have to make some big cuts because of the new image in posts limit on DF :/
Update 2.0.3Instead of formatting partitions during RZR restore, simply erase their contents. This fixes the nasty wipe all bug (hopefully this time, it really is foolproof)It is now impossible to wipe out color/overclock settings when wiping anythingrework color/oc preservation routinesdalvik-cache now includes /cache/dalvik-cache for gingerbread'ersAdded "this might take a while on gingerbread" message to cache-wipe. fixed % sign showing up on line underneath battery capacity when capacity was under 100%automatically remove stock recovery patch upon reboot to androidclockwork nandroid restores now don't disturb color setting or overclock levelAdded some RZRecovery messaeges to nandroid.

My droid charging:
My droid in the dark with the glowing keyboard:
(May be flashed from SPR/RZR/CWM)
No terminal action is necessary, Simply flash the update.zip like anything else. RSD lite is required you have a bone stock droid, in which case you must SBF.
Help me get better web hosting!
I do this for fun, make no guarantees and accept no responsibility for anything you do with my files.
Again, I have to say this could NOT
have happened without trevorj of DroidMod. The whole charging concept and execution was his idea. These are my files from my ROM but I would have no idea which ones I needed to get if it weren't for Trevor already doing this in March 2010.
The script that launches and monitors the battery daemon was originally written by him, modified by me to fit into my recovery image.
Big thanks to:
Tim-o-tato, pandroid, moset, yankindasouth, tanknspank, thizzmark, sgtguthrie, segdoh49, tp76, liquid0624, girluvsdroid for testing and encouragement. cvpcs also gave me some ideas, which will be impletemented in his own way when RCR is released. For now, enjoy RZR!
Don't enjoy it?
I provide a clockwork version 126.96.36.199 SBF to easily go back to CWM.
There is also an SPR SBF made by MotoCache1:
