Yes, but I haven't been able to try it with anyone yet to confirm it works.

Default EP1H questions

I have 2 questions regarding this new leak.

1 Is a wipe reset required to install this or can you flash and still have your current files and settings.

2 is this leak pre-rooted? If not, is there a way to root it?


Everything about this leak has been covered except these 2 things.


Thanks....

There's a new GummyCharge ROM based off this leak. You need to wipe but if you're already rooted you can just backup your apps and such with Titanium. It's an all inclusive Odin file, quick and simple to install... you will need the new GB optimized Odin to flash though.

As greenmunky said, you can try titanium backup to back everything up (I personally prefer a clean install).

Prerooted. It is NOT deodexed though (easy enough to do yourself if you want).

Default Thoughts after using it...

A few things I have noticed so far...(running the debloated leak)

Pros:
-Better battery life
-Smoother, no jittering like on the official stock 2.2

Cons:
-Streaming music is a problem. I have only tested Pandora, but it cuts off, halfway through a song. Google music streams fine with no cut offs.
-Ambient light sensor seems to not function, I have to keep my brightness all of the way up for when i go outside.

Other than that I haven't checked GPS functionality at all. Seems to be very close to final.

Default Ep1h

So i attempted the Flash without doing a wipe/reset, and looks like the system erased all my settings on its own.

And it does appear to be pre-rooted.

As for the guy referring to the Ambient sensor...
I had a Droid X prior, and after accepting the Stock GB from verizon, the ambient sensor was whacked out, and so was the lighting for the 4 physical buttons on the phone, they were 100% brightness all the time. Google has messed up somewhere with Gingerbread code.

GPS tested with Google maps, works properly.

Have they fixed the music on it yet? Pandora will only play 3/4 of a song and stop. I also have been having issues with general playback of music. It sounds like a cd skipping. They are perfect copies of songs that have worked perfectly other times.

I've had no issue with music skipping on this one. Granted, I usually only use Google Music.

I am dying to get GB loaded, but dang it, still can't get the page to open. I suppose I will have to try and find a techie to help me figure out what the problem is, or take the computer to someone. : (

Hey Kelmar,
Whats the benefits to the new EPQ1 version? I have the last Gingerbread and it is so solid. I finally got the audio fix that kejar made and could not be happier.

I haven't found time to flash it yet, but it sounds like the radios (4g/3g service) has been improved.

Hey Kelmar,

I'm am completely new to this whole Android thing besides rooting a Pandigital reader. Since this deals with my phone, I am more worried about messing it up. Does installing the leaked firmware void your warranty even if you install the Verizon version with the bloatware? I didn't want to mess up my phone since I was waiting for the Bionic to come out and I can exchange my phone for that if I wanted. Thanks.

Since it's not an officially released build and is still considered "in testing" I would likely void your warranty.

Thanks. I would love to install it, but I'll wait for the official release though. Thanks for the info about the release. Hopefully this means it will be released soon.

I am currently running it and I like it. It is very smooth and has some nice new features like the keyboard. I have had no lagging issues and the browser works great.

Granted there is no overclocking yet or additional kernels but its an early release. I will continue to use this until GC 2.0 with imoseyon 13.6 comes out.

+1 on all the PROs,

I dont use auto adjust so I dont care about that, the only issue I have seen so far is Gmail is not being automatically being pushed, I have to go into the app and hit refresh.

1500 seems a lil low to be honest. Im 1700 ish with out any overclocking. Are you on a etx4 file system?

When I was on 1.9.1, I was 1750's with imoseyon's 13.3, 2200 OC'd to 1400.
I can't wait till the full version comes out. Loving it so far.


Gummycharge 2.0 with imoseyon 13.6 FTW... the wait is killer.
