These days I AOKP ROM development looks more rational. With the Sense ROM's it all unfinished work and moving on to new versions/bases with new versions of Sense, without getting a the previous versions fixed.

TrickDroid ---> Sense 4 Lite till version 3 ---> Moved to Sense 4.1 Lite with version 4 which was essentially a new ROM and did not carry over the improvements of version 1 to 3 ----> Now discontinued.

Sabsa ---> Sense 4 Lite till version 7 which was coming along nicely ---> Moved to Sense 4.1 Lite with version 8.

Virtuous Inifinity ---> Moving to a new base and Sense 4.1, and essentially being ported from scratch.

It would be nice if a Dev Team actually finished the job.

It makes you appreciate the commitment of RB, Lord and existz the way develop their ROM's.

Lord had stuck with ICS and is continuously improving that. existz is continuing to improve his ICS/Kernel 2.6 ROM. RB is working on JellyBean.

If the acted like the Sense developers, Lord and existz would stop their work on ICS and move to 4.1.1, 4.1.2 and now 4.2 without getting any version "fully working".

Sorry for the rant. I am just not happy with Sense ROM development these days.

Most likely. Better than wondering if the Dev building your ROM knows what he is putting in it.

Have not seen you around lately. Nearly bricked someone's phone in your absence

Start of a long 4-day weekend, and I won't be flashing a new ROM. There is this Nandroid I probably will restore.

Just remember, whatever side I join becomes the Dark Side (I think D-U-R-X would approve of the change in classification)

Ruu's seem pretty fine. Apart from waiting 50 minutes downloading it to find its the wrong one..
Also, I usually have to do it in fast boot as it doesn't work normally.

I rooted my mates DHD using the AAHK, so I could sim unlock it for him, then ran an unbranded RUU so he could give it to his mate to use on a different network. As I'd rooted mine the long way a year before, I was bricking it all the time both were running, but it was pretty harmless!

ral,.your advice was fine. when they are s-off and superCIDed,you can run literally any ruu to get back to a working phone. the unbranded ones are pretty much always a safe bet.

its just when theyre s-on,that you want to try and dig a lil and figure out the best thing.

I've flashed jellytime r24 tonight. Gonna see how the wake vs screen on goes with this one. With Pacman and cm10nightlies it was terrible regarding battery life. If this one's crap as well, then it's back to the ral recommended existz ics rom.

Well... it's been a while since I've done any flashing... think I'm gonna have to give a different Vanilla ROM a go - Sense just doesn't do it for me!

Just not sure whether to stick with ICS or give JB a go?!?!

Jelly Bean. Have you tried flashing JellyTime is with 4Ext? If I could sorry out battery life issues (which does not appear to affect everyone) I would be on JellyTime R29.

Does the new kernel help with wake lock issues? I should give it a try myself

No, but I'll check it out... it's been THAT long since I flashed anything, I think I may have to just try a couple out before settling on a ROM for another 6 months!!

I am running JellyTime R29 with KangBang v1.9. Kind of a ironic marriage. But the two work well together. Well, their software does at least

ViperDHD?

Yup. The widgets were designed for a qHD display, so when using the Sense widgets there is a fair bit of space on the left and right sides. Kept it for a day only. Did not encounter any issues. Just did not like it.

It surprisingly fast for a Sense 4.x ROM though.

PACman's working out quite well at the moment, but I think I might have to try CM10 soon... I know PACman's based (in part) on CM10, but I did love CM7 when I had it on my phone!!

Was on JellyTime for a day, and the kernel improves things. But in the end opted to justify restore aospX MR1. Fully working Chrome browser is the main reason.

I do miss some of the CM features and improved JB notifications.

Every DHD ROM I have tried:

ARHD 6.3.3
ARHD 7.0.4
aospX 1.0.0-MR1
Blackout ICS (6 versions, including 2 unreleased versions)
Cynanogenmod 7.2
JellyTime (3 versions)
Sabsa Prime (2 versions)
TrickDroid (3 versions, including 1 unreleased versions)
Venomous Red (unreleased version)
ViperDHD 1.1
Virtuous Affinity 2.0.5
Virtuous Infinity (2 versions)
XxXPachaXxX Nero v2.0

Thats in the past 140 days or so

What phone did CDPlant move to. I do not see him in these parts anymore?

So far so good with PACman. Have noticed that long press on the homescreen does not bring up the option to add widgets, which is a bit annoying... guess that's only as I was used to it!

There are some nice options though and I am impressed with the Performance Settings that are built in.

Although I'm not sure if I will end up sticking with it, it certainly is a nice change

I think pacman was an excellent Rom, but mine went a bit weird and started acting up. On sense gingerbread at the moment but as soon as I'm done with needing GPS, I'll be back on Pacman or code fire.

I had a quick go on GPS last night and found that it seemed to be ok... better than any other vanilla ROM I've tried... didn't have to change the gps.conf file... gonna try it out when I go out in a bit

Been on Pacman for several weeks now. Annoying bug with BT - connect a paired device and it flips to 'vibrate' mode. Only real issue I've seen so far.

PACman's not a bad ROM and I've found battery life to be pretty good.

I don't use many widgets, but have noticed that Current Widget works for so long and then stops working. A reboot means that it works again, but I can't be rebooting all the time... I think it's gonna be time for another one!

Think that it's gonna have to be CM10

on the thnuderbolt,we had alot of trouble with GPS on AOSP roms. the fix was crazy,but actually worked.
-run a sense rom.
-use an app like GPS status to get a solid lock on as many satilites as possible. make sure to use the app to download AGPS settings. some folks used maps to get their location,with a 3 meter accuracy,wich seemed to work also.
-immediately boot to recovery,wipe,flash AOSP,or restore AOSP backup.

when flashing on my TB,i pretty much found as long as o had used GPS,and it worked in the previous rom i was running,it would work inthe next.

might give that a shot if you havent

I am going back to Blackout v3.2.

1. It uses the my own voltage, frequency and governor tweaks.

2. It is patched with my own rosie sensitivity fix.

3. It has my name in the Tweaks app

It feels a bit like the ROM is more mine than any other. Will still flash codefireX sooner or later... but I think my frequent flashing days are over.


Showing off now Sorry. could not help it.

Three weeks since I flashed a ROM. Two weeks since I flashed a kernel.

It had been the same amount of time since my last flash too.

Flashed CFX last night. And I like it, although everything seems real lggy.
