    i'm a fan of dearmas' rom so i'm gonna help spread the word on his new site where you can get his stuff. i guess he and sdx have had a big falling out so his stuff isn't there anymore. all of his roms that i've tried have been awesome. anyways,

    AMS-Services

    he said that his ultimate dream 3.3 rom would be released today

    The problem with Dearmas is too much drama, ending in a Zefie like flame out. I liked his earlier stuff, but always found it to be a little unstable. I'll stick with noobnl's rom, seems to get better battery life and is consistently stable.. Since he quit Moment development, he's been way more productive.....in Moment development!:confused:

    In addition to this, I enjoy knowing what I'm putting on my phone which is something that Dearmas tended to leave out and keep secret. That's fine to have a closed source program and have a support center setup (i.e., Microsoft, Apple, etc.). But when you're working in open source and you need to get to the heart of the issue you're having, it's good to know what "tons of great stuff" is so you can pinpoint the problem.

    Support was another reason I did not use his. If you ever said you had a problem or needed help troubleshooting, the best support you received from both him and his fanbase was, "Go away and shut up. It's not his ROM."

    I'm not saying don't use his stuff; he's a decent developer/patcher. Worth checking out if you're not too concerned what goes on your phone.

    I've tried several and nothing has come close to the experience I get from my phone when using his ultimate rom. It absolutely is the best hands down from the ones I tried. People try to attack him so much but regardless of who wrote all of the pieces he out it all together and made it work. I was ready to get rid of the moment until I tried Ultimate 3.2 but now I think I can stick it out until my contract is up and upgrade again.

    He would submit his work to be open, which SDX has an open source policy. As well as Joey didn't want him using his kernel in his rom. He asked him to not put it in, he said he's keeping it in it. His rom is nice, but at the same time he's done nothing much to truly benefit the community. Noob has always had the best releases in my opinion.

    I had given up on the Moment, until the Dearmas roms started coming out.
    I have used most versions of his roms and all have been more reliable and longer battery life than what I was getting from the Joey's rom.

    His new Ultimate Dream 3.3 works great for me.

    Unaware of the all the drama, but I think the whole point of switching around kernels and making changes to your phone is to somehow better it for yourself. If this person is developing something and not telling you what it is, it kind of takes the fun out out of it for the end user. Kind of like just keeping quiet and drinking the Kool Aid. [​IMG]


    I just checked out the site and the only information on Dream 3.3 is..

    :confused:

    The last thread he had going at SDX before all the drama broke out had a lot more info on what was in the rom. He promised a change log for 3.3 but hasn't posted it yet and honestly I would be surprised if he ever did as that was what kicked off all the junk at SDX.

    SDX Google Ultimate Dream 3.2 {ROM} (OpenGL Storm) (Video Camera Fixed)

    Btw, I'm holding off on 3.3 until I see more comments on how it is running due to the lack of info on what was changed. Simply saying "it's faster" or "I love it" isn't really a reason to upgrade...

    Well I went right to 3.3. And I can say things seem to be fine. Yes it is fast. Yes it's pretty. But I have not had a single force close, no reboots, Nothing strange. It's been over 24 hrs. Ive given this rom some heavy testing. Battery seems to be fine. I got about 14hrs with the battery.

    Usage was about 30 mins of web
    2 calls about 45 mins total
    20 std txt msgs
    60 or so gtalk msgs
    Full sync email, gtalk, calendar.
    About 30 mins of GPS nav
    All day location on with latitude
    20 mins or so of wifi tether for the wife to check all her crap on her laptop in the car.
    I took about 15 or so pictures. And uploaded to Facebook

    Misc widgets running: Latitude, Facebook, Weather 2hr refresh,

    Oh yeah and this was while was traveling in WI in the middle of know where for the holiday. Signal was spotty at best at times.

    I know he has not posted a change log but does he really have to?

    And best of all, Zero cdma lockups or airplane mode.

    Glad you like the rom. OTH, the radio issues with this phone are almost certainly hardware and as far as can be seen with the reporting on
    sdx and other sites, unaffected by which rom you use. If you got them before, you'll get them again. Sorry!

    I too would like him to let us know exactly what he puts in the rom and to also give more specific change logs. But then again its not like we pay dude for his work so I guess he can do what he wants. And if I get that curious I can open up the zip and take a look myself. But what I mostly care bout is that his roms make my phone better so ill support them until they don't. And fyi 4.0 is gonna be released tonite. I'll run it a few days and report back on issues if anyone cares.

    ok well here's my two cents and this is more for the guys dissing derm where do you get off saying anything bad about anyone trying to help.. i don't see any of you doing half the stuff he does so before you are so quick to criticize someone elses work you might want to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP OUT!!!!!!!!

    I'm glad this thread isn't taken to over reaction. And if anyone says anything bad about it, I'm going to nuke Cheboygan MI.

    no just getting tired of the way some people want to flame other for trying to make the phones we use better.for someone to sit there and say that his roms are junk is bs there are bugs in all the roms including stock thats my point.

    and by the way 4.0 was released and so far its about the best out there.

    Except that it can't sync with Google, but who needs that minuscule feature anyway.
