Anyone here who tried the leak have any issues with it?
As stated, I've used it, but not extensively. Used it as my daily driver for about two days. Noticed two main issues:
-tapping the click on the weather/clock widget opens up to the world clock as opposed to the desk clock (a minor annoyance)
-bluetooth audio doesn't automatically resume when I start my car, I have to turn the phone's screen on and hit play
Aside from that, it seemed to be a winner. But then, they didn't make many changes. The flip clock now actually flips like other more modern Sense-based phones. HTC Car panel now works in landscape. Love the new application management (same as CM7, stock GB essentially).
Thanks fo rthe additional information. I might give it a run.
you should i mean i have ran it and it s no where near perfect yet ... could be why we dont have an official update lol
I've been running it daily since the first day it was posted. It's been pretty solid. It's randomly rebooted twice, but at one point I had over 1000 hours (~42 days) of up time before I updated the PRL.
Issues: Voice search and speech-to-text.. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I haven't noticed a pattern. And MMS has FC'd maybe 6 times. A couple MMS messages I restored from a backup show up blank, so something might have been corrupted with that.
Battery: I get about 2 3/4 to 3 hours of usage out of it, depending what I'm doing. If I don't pick it up it uses maybe 2% an hour. But that's just a guess. I don't do any special bump charging, I plug it in when I go to bed, unplug it when I wake up. (Stock battery, 3G on all day, in a relatively good signal area. Most use time comes from data, email, and texts, not phone calls)
lol thanks everyone. Still thinking about it. CM7 is so nice its hard to go to anything else.
Try MIUI. I love cm7 but miui is cool.
ok i will. Where is the best place to get it?
Miui.us only place I would get it.
downloading now. Is it 2.3?
how do you open the app drawer? lol
No app drawer. I put all the apps in folders that I don't put on a home screen. I also use app organizer to classify in folders too.
I have 9 homescreens. Watchthe video tutorials. They are great.
Also go to xda and download themes. You can use any part if the theme or all of it. Lockscreens are awesome
Gave this discussion its own thread to keep the other one 'kinda' on track.
Does a GB ROM, such as CM7, use the "GB leak"? I'm running CM7.0.3 and under about Phone it says I am running Android version 2.3.3
Does the leak update your OS without changing the original Sense ROM?
CM7 uses the actual Gingerbread source recompiled to run on your phone. It's not a leak.
When talking about the GB leak, we're talking about the HTC leak for the Incredible that occurred in May. There are several ROMs based off of this leak, including a link to one in my sig.
CM7 is based off of stock Android (using ADW launcher). The GB leak is official Sense + GB for the Incredible.
Good idea although the track on the other one is going through the bad side of.town.
If you update to the most recent Cm7 nightly, you will have 2.3.4
CM7.1 stable is also 2.3.4
