The Dell Streak isn’t unfamiliar with the world of custom ROMs. The incredible DJ_Steve has been cooking up custom StreakDroid Froyo ROMs since October of last year. Now, Steve even has a custom Gingerbread ROM in development.
However, a second custom Froyo ROM has just been released on xda-developers by Spidla.
Dubbed Simple Streak by its creator, the new custom ROM is based on Dell’s Hong Kong 354 2.2.2 build, and has been stripped down to just the basics for a super speedy Streak experience.
Simple Streak has removed Dell’s Stage widgets and launcher, using LauncherPro in its stead. Spidla has also removed all of the apps Dell has installed on their ROM, such as Facebook and Amazon MP3, leaving you with a basic Android system for you to mod as you see fit. The ROM is also rooted and features a stylish black notification bar. It also makes portrait mode the default screen orientation, instead of Dell’s landscape setting.
I haven’t personally tried this new ROM (I’m currently rocking DJ_Steve’s StreakDroid 1.9.0), but the users over at xda-developers can vouch for its speediness and also report that WiFi and GPS are functioning properly.
