Check Virtuous ROM. He posted yesterday.

He apparently plans to update within the week.

I'm wondering whether the release of Gingerbread to AOSP will spur him to incorporate any Gingerbreadedness.

Addendum 12/18/10 -

If you go to the Virtuous forum on xda-developers' forum, he has already posted the changelog, and said 3.2 is dropping any minute.

As RMK has repeatedly said, the virtuous rom will never be a "port" rom, and will always be based off official releases. So further development of this Rom depends on HTC/Verizon providing the updates, then RMK will tweak/optimize them.

3.2 is out.

However, there are multiple reports (myself included) of the update causing boot loops. I would hold off on upgrading.

Default The problem is with HBOOT, not Virtuous

Following along on the Virtuous thread at xda-developers, I learned that the problem with 3.2 is that it requires HBOOT v. 0.92. Installs with earlier versions were resulting in boot loops.

The update dialogue via ROM Manager now reminds you that you have to update to HBOOT 0.92 before you update to 3.2.

Since I already had HBOOT 0.92, I did the update to Virtuous 3.2 and it's running just fine, thank you very much.

Same here, running 3.2 since yesterday. Had a pretty heavy day of use for the phone and have not encountered any problems as of yet.

Running Virt 3.2 for about a week now and no issues. Flashed the circular_battery update and the 6 bar signal strength meter with no problems.

Does anyone know if you can use the Revolution Theme with Virt 3.2 or does applying that theme roll out a lot of the fixes?

And to the previous poster, yes, there is a Revolution Theme for Virtuous. You can get it via the below link.

Here is the white circular battery:

Here is where I got the 6 bar signal meter. Look at the bottom of the thread for the new 6 bar zip file and stock zip file if you want to return to stock.

Hope that helps!

Thanks hgoldner!

I knew about this link but read in the HTC Incredible forum that the theme in this link overwrites many of the bug fixes included in Virt 3.2. I was trying to verify if that is true. Do you know?

The "Theme" is a new wrapper for the ROM. That means the ROM's "features" such as no location icon when location is off in the notification bar might be overwritten by the theme's settings.

However, you can always load a theme then mod it back to the way you want it by changing notification icons, etc. You just have to be patient and experiment because not all mods play nicely. For instance, I first tried a different approach to the circular battery icons and got force closes. I backed out and used the set above and everything is fine.
