Is the only way to get gingerbread right now is to root?
Will it ever get official gingerbread update?
Yeah its being worked on. The ones floating around are leaks so it is going to come out soon.
Hey does the charge come with swype? If it does will it get updated every time swype does?
It does come with Swype. I believe it should get updated since it comes with it, but i'm not sure, since I never used Swype.
There have been multiple could of the GB builds, but the rumors I've seen seem to lead to it being released this month as EP1W.
Obviously, I have no idea if this is actually true or not....
DROID Charge Receives Another Leaked Official Android 2.3.4 Build – EP1W
I'm hoping the GB update comes out this month. I got ants in my pants about rooting and romming. If GB comes out soon, and it's awesome, then I can save myself the trouble.
I'm hoping that when Gingerbread comes out the source code is released quickly thereafter so that kejar31 can update his GummyCharged Gingerbread build to it quickly. That and iMoseyOn can update his kernel too.
I like the GummyCharged ROM since it's fast and lightweight.
Looks promising, but reading deeper there are still issues that many are having.... can't wait for it to be more stable because I want the radio issues and improved battery life.
most of the issues are with the debloated touchwiz 4 version. from what i gather the regular bloated version is pretty good. i havent rooted my phone. waiting on the OTA.
Thats what I gathered too... if I am going to the dark side I'm getting rid of the Verizon bloatware... that is my biggest problem with this phone. 6 pages of apps and I only use like 1 to 2.
You got that right, that and the excessive RAM usage by all that bloat. It's so much nicer of a phone when all that crap isn't running.
Its amazing, now that I have my Bionic a leak comes out that makes my phone not run like crap. This new leak is really nice.
Amazing how long its taking! Feels like when I had my Fascinate...
Root now. I am rooted (and have been since day two of owning the phone). Running froyo...Gummy 1.91 with imos latest kernel. Gummy 2.0 does not seem to like my phone. With lagfix enabled I consistaly get quadrants in the 1600-1700 range. The phone is fast and I ran it down to zero yesterday with over 30 hours on the battery. I refuse to believe gingerbread will do any more than that.
I am coming from a droidX that I still have froyo on. Tried the gingerbread builds and stock gingerbread but rooted froyo was still better for me battery wise and performace was every bit as good. Sometimes the latest flavor is not neccessarily better.
According to this website, anyway... and one person on the Verizon Charge forums.
Samsung Droid Charge Gingerbread Update Now Available | Mobile Bloom News
What do you think?
Its a leak, not the official release.
Sweet...we are getting closer people
There is no link, no file and no information to support this claim by mobilebloom. Stick to getting your information from reputable sources.
Also, the person from the Verizon Charge forum admitted that the entire post was made up of "wishful thinking".
Walmart ad lists the charge as a 2.3 device
You don't need root. EP1W writes over everything through odin. Phone isn't even "booted" when it's flashed.
I waited for a while, and gave in before lunch today. WOW this thing is fast, eliminates the home screen redraw lag, and I've been streaming without any "hiccups" for quite a while. That hiccup used to bug the heck out of me.
Showed EP1W to a friend with a charge, he played with it for about 15 seconds and asked if I could flash his. He's been loving it all day!
I'm talking about the "bloated" version, apparently there are some TW4 issues on the non-bloated.
I thought the Charge came with 2.3.
