Streak 7 Slimmed is another ROM for Dell Streak 7 users

Solar Wind Since the release of Dell Streak 7, users have been limited in the ROMs that they could use for their wonderful devices. DJ_Steve has been the main developer for Streak 7 ROMs with his popular Honeystreak, which introduced Honeycomb to the Streak 7.

But there is also an alternative called Streak 7 Slimmed by developer bogdii1988. This new ROM is based off of DJ_Steve's work, with customizations like Launcherpro 0.8.3, the latest version of Adobe Flash, Reader, updated Google apps, updated Facebook and Twitter, quickboot (currently only reboot works), custom boot BIOS animation. T-Mobile and Dell bloatware have both been removed as well.

Before installing it is a wise idea to do a Nandroid backup first. Then follow in the instructions below.

  • Download the .zip file, which contains the files required to install this ROM
  • Extract the .zip to the clockworkmod/backup/ folder on your SD card.
  • Perform a factory reset from the ClockworkMod recovery menu
  • Enter the recovery restore menu and restore the ROM file you extracted earlier.

Expect your first boot to take longer than usual. bogdii1988 also suggests using the Solar Wind live wallpaper (shown above).
