Wow they really did steal eugene's rom! Right down to the android splash screen. As well as the old outdated astro app!

Did you notice how fast this thing boots? It took less than one minute from the moment he pressed the button until the wallpaper appeared. It takes about two minutes on my phone..

Not to mention they kept the modified X10 Digital Clock Widget from Eugene!! These guys are calling it their MODIFIED version but in reality it is Eugene's Modified version. They need to give credit where it is due!

Were there any problem's with Eugene's mod such as no sound, vibrate, or camera? If so, I wonder if Cinci Bell's version fixed those issues.

Only the Galaxy ROMs ever had those problems. And that was only because Galaxy drivers don't work 100% on the Behold II.


NONE of the other 1.6 ROMs ever had vibrate or camera issues.



Take5, however, did have more FC's than the OEM 1.6 Tweaked, due to being based on a "Leaked" version of 1.6, and not a "Final" version.

Take5 appears, pretty outright, to be the ROM on those phones.

I would still like to confirm this. Even if it is BH_MAN's ROM they may have made some changes for performance or stability (not that it wasn't already good).

Didn't Take5 use the ring battery indicator? It's been a while, but I thought it did.

Okay Framework wise I would say it's probably take5 but kernel wise it's the latest Samsung's NOT pre-released like the one on take5.
I wish someone like Nu11u5, Bhman and microhaxo could port this rom over! now the question is who has this phone on hands and willing to dump the rom

The bigger question is who even uses Cincinnati Bell? Lol my guess is that if someone does use cinci and did by some fluke buy this pos they would probably be very uninformed and have no clue how to or desire to do a system dump

Actually around in this area Cincinnati Bell has the best 3G coverage. My friend has the 3G Blaze through them and the speedtest says his phone smokes mine even when I am in hspa.

I get around 5MB down and he gets around 7MB.

The problem is when you leave the area your stuck on at&t.

Based on the spec of cinci website : 3G 1700/2100 MHz meaning they use T-Mobile 3G frequency bands. that's weird if your phone roamed to ATT?? hmm...

Oopps on second thought!! I found this of Google: AT&T Wireless and Cincinnati Bell Sign GSM/GPRS Roaming Agreement.
They use Tmobile 3G access only within Cinci own coverage area and ATT GSM/GPRS outside.

They do not use T-mobile's network by its self. Their whole local coverage is T-mobile plus their own 3G only network overlaying it. Basically my friend's Cincinnati Bell phone can use all the towers my Slide uses plus 3G towers I can't use. But once he leaves the local area he is stuck with at&t.

I wonder if BH_MAN can confirm this with his inside source, or may even get a ROM dump?!!

Cool
