    So at this point, in your opinions, which of the roms would you say is better? Elelinux 7 or TastyGinger 2.0? Overall anyway...

    What the..!! Just curious.. @Slug, Do you keep flashing the new roms Ele release? If so, how do you update your data and keep restoring your apps?

    'Wipe of cache' also means factory reset, right?
  4. Slug

    Slug Check six! Moderator

    Yup.

    I don't need to, as minor version updates don't need a full wipe a.k.a. factory reset. All apps and their data remain intact. It's literally a five minute job (or less if I skip a nandroid backup of the existing ROM); boot into recovery, wipe cache, wipe dalvik-cache, flash the ROM, reboot system.

    No, it just wipes the /cache filesystem. Like /dalvik-cache, this is rebuilt on reboot.

    Cool, thanks! Another question. How do you wipe cache? I seem to only be able to wipe Dalvik-cache that's all..

    Oh! Alright.. I think cuz mine's a older version.. I'll flash a new recovery then!

    Amom_RA has all the options under the "Wipe" menu.
    ClockworkMod puts "Wipe dalvik cache" under "Advanced".

    The most recent release, v0.6, has fixed the performance control issue; CPU parameters now work as expected.

    Enabling the proper ext apps2sd seems to have improved things a lot in terms of smoothness on gingerbread. I don't feel the need for autokiller anymore.

    And I must say, as much as I like elelinuxe's work, the cronos gingerbread rom has cracked something nobody else has in terms of UI smoothness. I've tried the recent elelinux and it's just not the same.

    If you are using Amon RA you need to upgrade to the latest version. I was also pondering for a while what this cache wipe function was.


    I've gotta say V7 has been incredibly stable for me so far. Even the GPS has been behaving. On top of that both battery life and memory management is improved over Villain12 which I was previously using.

    Thanks! Sorry, but how do I flash from 1.6 to 1.7.01 RA? Yes, I'm using Amon RA. I didn't understand the instructions, so it'd be good if you guys can help me out with it :]

    cheers!

    [Recovery ROM] [15-August-2010] RA-hero-v1.7.0.1 - xda-developers

    The instructions in above link is pretty self-explanatory. Since you're already using 1.6, all you have to do is a couple of adb commands from your pc. What exact problem did you encounter?

    I didn't know how to use adb actually. I just downloaded the SDK manager gonna install now..

    It's well worth having available if you're into modding your handset, as it can be a lifesaver if you mess up. Once you have it installed, adb /? will display the available commands, options and switches, but all you need to do in this case is follow the first set of instructions for devices with a custom recovery already installed.

    Phew! I've finally learned how to even start adb now :] Haha so yeah, I can finally wipe cache *only, and running on 0.7 now. Awesome! Thanks, guys!

    What additional stuff can I do with adb actually? ^^

    What will I lose from Sense if I install this rom? I assume that there won't be a 2.2 with Sense? I want to start afresh as I currently have problems with apps installing on my phone for a long time now.

    There are 2.2 ROMs with sense, but they don't have a working camera as far as I know.

    Don't know if it's just me, but I've noticed that I'm no longer getting the white line animation when the screen times out. I've got it enabled in CyanogenMod settings, but this makes no difference.
  21. Slug

    Slug Check six! Moderator

    Yeah, it's just you Phil. :p j/k

    The screen-on/off animations work for me, but there are a lot of posts saying they don't for others. Seems it can sometimes take disabling, rebooting, enabling and rebooting again to get the settings to "stick".

    Having said this, I now predict that the animations will cease to work as soon as I flash the v0.8.1 release. ;)

    What's the consensus? Is this ROM stable enough for day to day use?
