    Cheers dudes. I enjoy helping and answering questions, so no worries. Its pretty much the only reason I keep coming back. Questions of my own tend to go to XDA now ;)

    Dan and others also helped me out with my first rooting and flashing adventure!

    To anybody who is considering rooting and flashing, I would encourage them to not be scared or worried. We were all new to this business at one time or another, and have gone on to offer differing amounts of advice to new members who need help or guidance. That's what makes this forum a great place for all things Android related. :)

    Since i have joined this fantastic forum as a noob, i have debranded, rooted, custom rom, 1gb a2sd+ partition with gparted, s-offed, flashed a new recovery, fonts, clock etc etc all with the help of you great guys. Never realised this phone was capable of so much more than the crap it arrived with from orange. A huge thanks again to you all. This root section is now top of my bookmarks list & i am even helping out some noobs myself now!

    thats the best thing about it, the learning is fast and logical onces youve grasped it you wonder how you found it difficult

    i dont like pushing people to root however i do thing the people who dont do it are missing out on the majority of what the android os is about

    Generally I need dev help now :)

    Although, if you're up for a challenge:

    Why is this:

    Code (Text):
    1. #!/system/bin/sh
    2. #
    3. /system/xbin/busybox mkdir /mnt/asec/ext
    4. /system/xbin/busybox mount -o dirsync,noatime,nodiratime /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /mnt/asec/ext
    5. /system/bin/e2fsck_recvy -y -v -f /mnt/asec/ext/ext2
    6. /system/xbin/busybox mount -o loop,noatime,nodiratime,sync,nosuid,nodev /mnt/asec/ext/ext2 /data
    7. #/system/xbin/busybox swapon /mnt/asec/ext/swap
    8. chown 1000.1000 /data
    9. chmod 771 /data
    10. exit
    Causing me to hang at splash if flashed as part of, or adb push after gingervillain 0.8, yet no problems on 0.7?

    pshhhaww... you don't know why!? That's simple!

    But seriously - how do you like GV? Is it worth moving from DF 6.1a? Any new feature make it worth it (better battery usage, or other things like that?) The text selection / cut / copy thing isn't a game changer imo (especially if coming from sense)
  15. SUroot

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    hehe. replied to this on XDA...

    But anyway:

    It was worth it for me as I hadn't flashed anything in a while and was getting itchy feet. However, it was the right choice. Nice aesthetic tweaks from GB etc.

    Its still in its infancy so its hard to say whether its the right choice for you. I haven't even looked into Oxy to be honest. One of the reasons I love DF is the CM additions. Mainly whats missing for me is the battery % and colour status / pull down.

    Can't you get those features by cooking a theme from UOT? It supports GV. Do any apps / widgets not work with it?

    edit: sorry for posting on both forums!

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    Hahah, post where ever you like matey :)

    Yeah you can, but I like it all to be contained within the rom. not a fan of using external themes. I'm happy to miss it until it returns more than to flash a theme.

    flyte Well-Known Member

    Any widget/app not work in GV thus far?

    ...kicking off MyBackup Root now... feeling like I need to switch to GV!

    Do I need S-off to do this?
  19. SUroot

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    Not found any widgets that I use to not work.

    To be honest, data2sd is hard to wipe, so I was naughty and I didn't do one and everything I had in DF 6.1 seems to work fine (for me anyway)

    No s-off. Just like flashing any other rom. Just nandroid and titanium / mybackupo etc first
  20. flyte

    flyte Well-Known Member

    I don't use Data2SD, so I don't think I should have any issues.

    ps: here's a hint - when the wife wants to watch a chick flick (in this case, You Again), flash a new ROM. It makes it go by much easier ;)

    My quadrant scores are no where near what they were with DF 6.1a, with the same kernel (0.6HAVS 1113Mhz + BFS 925mV or 6.0c SVS 1190mhz + BFS). It seems to also miss one of the 3D rendering benchmarks.

    Also, swype FC's on me :(..

    format life:
    unmount /life x_x
