StarDroid 500 is fast and stable with increased battery life and revolutionary performance tweaking methods all of which are handled within the boot.img itself, bogomips rating at 1.31mhz OC is 1955 almost double the stock RUU 2.47.502.7. This ROM is designed specifically for the HTC Inspire, unlike many other ROM's which are customized Desire HD or ported from other devices. yes there are a few bugs I'm Sure. Please report any bugs back to this thread so that I can look into resolving them for you.
I'm placing this note here so everyone can see it: IF YOU DOWNLOAD MY ROM VIA Rom Manager that is fine, BUT do not allow or use Rom Manager to install it, once the download is complete just reboot your phone into recovery and then do the full wipe and then choose install from sdcard, browse out to where Rom Manager stores its downloads and choose the rom there. Apparently Rom Manager has some issues with installing Roms although I have never had a problem with it at all.
There are several Custom Roms build from the new RUU 2.47.502.7 so we have choices and flavors galor, outside of major issues I don't believe there will be any additional full builds, I will release patches ands mods/bug fixes as they are made available. I will continue to support this release for some time.

How to install a custom ROM on HTC inspire What is clockwork recovery and how to use it If you are having problems installing my ROM's try the steps below, this should get you up and going.
1. Reboot into recovery and do a "Wipe data/Factory reset"
2. Go to the Mounts menu item and choose to format system, data and cache
3. Choose "Install Update from sdcard", browse to where you stored my ROM and select it.
4. REMEMBER!! if you are coming from any other dev's ROM you must do a full wipe including the data partition before installing my ROM. You must also have ext4 recovery 3.0.26 or above. DO Not flash the NoSense rom over the top of the Sense rom do a wipe first. Recommended Radio 220.127.116.11P_26.10.04.03_M
How to Unlock your APN Settings
Download the "Unlock_APN patch from the attachments and save it to the root of your sdcard. Reboot into recovery and flash the patch. reboot your phone. Your APN settings will be unlocked for editing. HOWEVER, if you select the "Reset to Default" menu button it will revert the settings to default and lock them them down again, if that happens just reflash the patch.
Thanks to those who helped
klquicksall - for the excellent kernel
seo - for all the sense 3.0 components
dsixda - for the kitchen
wolf - for being a beta tester and for the new stardroid logo and other graphics.
shane6374 for the ACS signature banner

Sybregunne - for the daemon controller app
genepool - for showing me how to unlock the APN by editing the telephony.db
and of course to everyone else who I may have forgotten to mention, without the hard work and knowlege of the devs on this site custom roms would be nearly impossible to build.
How to use the built-in OC_Daemon
Thanks goes to mike1986 for the instructions
Thanks goes to the Virtuous Unity team for the Daemon
1. Uninstall any overclocking tools like SetCPU, NoFrills, etc.. Do Not use SetCPU it will cause problems with the boot image on my ROM
2. With new OC Daemon script the defaults are as follows:
wake_min_freq = 230400 (230 MHz)
wake_max_freq = 1075200 (1.02 GHz)
sleep_min_freq = 230400 (230 MHz)
sleep_max_freq = 537600 (538 MHz)
wake_governor = ondemand
sleep_governor = conservative
You can leave it like that. Our early tests proved, that such default configuration is very good for both battery and performance.
3. But if you decided to change the frequencies for some reason, it's very simple to do.
3a. With root explorer go to system/etc/virtuous_oc and open one of the files you want to configure. You will see:
wake_min_freq = setting minimal frequency for device while it's awake
wake_max_freq = setting maximal frequency for device while it's awake
sleep_min_freq = setting minimal frequency for device while it's sleeping
sleep_max_freq = setting maximal frequency for device while it's sleeping
wake_governor = governor for device while it's awake
sleep_governor = governor for device while it's sleeping
3b. To change frequencies you would need to know the frequencies table from the kernel. The frequencies table from ROM's default kernel:
122000 | 230400 | 460800 | 537600 | 614400 | 691200 | 768000 | 844800 | 921600 | 998400 | 1075200 | 1152000 | 1228800 | 1305600 | 1382400 | 1459200 | 1536000 | 1612800
3c. If you are using different kernel, f.g. LeeDroid's one, you need to check the frequencies table manually. Do it by typing it in any terminal emulator:
3d. Now when you know which frequency you want to use, edit proper files in virtuous_oc folder, save it and reboot. Done!
I do not recommend changing governors. Don't use SmartAss governor with new OC Daemon. I recommend leaving default governors.
4. However, if you do want to change them run this command in a terminal window to see a list of the available governors for your kernel.
