I am running bugless beast7.6 and man is it snappy. OC'd to 1.2 ghz too! Very, very stable.
I just posted this in the rooting subforum
1200 MHz ~ 1.2 GHz
What I meant was that I didn't know it was at that kernel. I was running 1.3GHz. It was good for a day then it started rebooting every 20 min. I'll see how this one goes.
I have just installed it - going to see if it is stock 1.2 OOB or if that is an updated image / Nandroid BU being used to take BB to 1.2.
Will post back in a few minutes.
1.2 seems to be built into the ROM now. I have selectable speeds of 250, 500, 600, 700, 800, 1000, 1100, and 1200....
i am running bb 2.1, its not as fun as bb 2.0.1-7.5, so in a week or so if 7.7 or higher is out with more things changed, i will probably jump back, so many nandroid backups and replacing widgets sucks!
is there a way to save widgets? wouldn't be such a big deal if i didn't have more icons widget! puts for icons into the space of one normal one! but i have to redo it every time i nandroid backup!
It is fast. I had 0.7.5 and this is wicked compared to it
more icons allows backups now, so you can save your setup to your card and restore them later.
Since I was already using 0.7.5, I simply updated - kept all my apps, settings, widgets, etc. in place. Pete states that any 2.0.1 can be used with update to install BB....
Not 100% sure, but I would guess that downgrading from 2.1 to 2.0.1 would probably be best done using a wipe and install, though.
0.7.5 clocked up to 1000 MHz, 0.7.6 clocks up to 1200 MHz - so the speed is going to be noticeably increased.
Nice, didn't know that. thanks.
When I first booted back into the os i still had setcpu at 1ghz and it was noticably faster.
oh yeah! i forgot more icons did that! guess the next update will probably see me switching back to 2.0.1 haha.... or maybe i will do it asap! i am not liking bb 2.1! just... doesn't feel the same!
The OS itself seems faster (but I have run 1200 before, so it is not fast like I have never seen it before, but just faster than I was used to) but the boot process is being a major PITA - it is actually slower for 0.7.6 for me than 0.7.5 was....
i am just gonna stick with 800 MAYBE 900, but 800 to start and see if i notice something different, kinda sucks that my apps suck up most my memory, so a clean phone is soooo fast, but then i do mybackuppro and it SLOWS down
quick question, there are two ways to update your rom , nandroid back up..... Remove your "7.4" update and add "7.5" update......restore from newest update, now you are running 7.5 with all your setting staying the same.....is there any downside to going about an update this way?
Another way, which i have not tried, so i am not sure of the process. here i found it on pete's post
Update (if available) all of your apps before installing
-Backup any files you wish to restore, this will wipe /data
-Extract the files from the archive using WinRAR or a similar program
-Place the extracted folder (the ROM) into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard
-Reboot into recovery mode
-Wipe data/factory reset
-Wipe cache partition
-Advanced Nandroid Restore
-Choose backup (select the ROM)
basically what are the pro's and con's of each if anyone could help, appreciate your time.
That's the Nandroid restore way. As far as I can see, the only difference is you lose EVERYTHING off the phone and starting from scratch. That's the con. If you have problems doing it the update way then I'd suggest doing it this way.
If you have your phone setup a certain way and love it then updating would be best. If you uninstalled some apps from his rom then it don't matter how you do it because they will be back once you go either way.
I wish they would patch in the Animated Wallpaper from the Nexus one
meh, pete is probably working on it, he just like them to be BUGLESS, so if he half asses live wall papers, its not bugless
Anyone having problems with the Nandroid update of 7.6? I'm now getting "error 21" when trying to do it (choosing all options under advanced restore). This is the first time I've tried doing a nandroid update as I'm thinking it might be cleaner.
What I've done is extract the files to a new folder within the Nandroid folder, naming it something different and trying to use it (the folder) as my nandroid restore. I'm wondering where the problem is coming from?
If I recall, that error means you have a "naming" problem. Do you have any spaces in your new file name?
Are you saying the folder needs to be named something specifically (as in what Pete initially called the .rar)? If that's true, then I'll change it around and see what happens.
No, it just can't have spaces in it. I say that because I renamed one and got an error message that I think was 21. I went back an renamed it taking out the spaces and it worked fine.
Okay, everything looks alright, guess I shouldn't mess with Pete's instructions.
I just flashed this ROM...awesome as usual...Pete's awesome
Shouldn't this be in the rooting section? Just wondering?
Separate names with a comma.
