    Steven asked me to start this thread since he is running this Rom right now and liking it quite a bit. He feels that it should have it's own dedicated thread, and I agree :D:D:D

    I couldn't find a thread specifically for this Rom, and neither could Steven, hopefully our efforts here aren't doubling up on an existing thread.

    Here's the link to the thread by revNumbers over at rootzwiki.com.

    I'm going to recommend this ROM even for newbs. The only things, newbs, is if you have any questions or difficulties? ASK! There's an sbf and one click root available for the new .602 GB update, so it's going to be pretty difficult to totally mess up, nigh to impossible.

    Personally, I hadn't flashed anything since June. Since June I was on Stock Gingerbread rooted, so I was getting bored. This is giving me new enjoyment. I love the little tweaks you can do with the rom.

    I thought you couldn't stand cm7 4 froyo because you couldn't live without hd camera/camcorder... How does being on the gb kernel + battery life-1% battery display bring you back? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    That is beside the point though... Great rom! Love it! If you don't have it already, get it!

    if i'm not mistaken the fix for the camera (the all in one CM7 fix) has been rolled into this build. So you don't have to flash a separate zip.

    It is rolled in but it is not as good resolution as the blur video cam. The still cam is just as good only no widescreen. I too miss the 1% battery and it appears that none of the market battery monitor widgets work either. They all pull in something like -13483272% for the battery.

    Besides that the only other complaint I has is not being able to play videos I captured with the blur cam.

    I am loving the CM74DXonGB. Can't find any reasons not to have this as my daily driver. The GB version does seem a bit snappier and the battery life is much much better. Got 16 hours yesterday on standard battery.

    I think the original ssx rom was on the froyo kernel (I know; not technically the froyo kernel but the kernel that came with froyo). So you will need to SBF to 604, one click root, and install the latest rev. nightly.

    One other note, if you have rom manager premium, be careful when flashing recover. It looks like some have had issues with the latest I personally have not but the rootzwiki forum is reporting lots of issues and lots of 'em are going back to

    Steven, are you using jakebites? I ran for about a day and a half without it and then put v8 on. Just moved to v9. I know what all it does but I really did not notice much of a change. You?
  11. Steven58


    I am. I'm getting good battery life. I did it because bo did it. I do everything he does. He is my role model. ;)

    If you want widescreen shots use the MIUI Test 1 camera, it works perfectly. Just go into its settings and turn off Auto Focus, and choose "Infinity" for "Focus Mode".

    If you want it, here it is:

    Install it through CWR or extract it from the zip an install it manually through something like root explorer.

    Does anyone know how to get the stock GB launcher? I prefer it to all the others. It does everything I need, clean and simple.

    I wonder if I could just snag it from OMGB.

    If you are already on a .602 rom can you just wipe data and flash this or do you have to sbf?
  21. Steven58


    I still do like blur very much. The thing about this is that it runs leaner and faster. I'm running with much more rom to spare and smoothness than my blur. I do miss some blur features, though. Regarding changing my mind? I'm 53. I've been forced to do that often in order to grow in wisdom. :D

    1) lol... 2) Thanks, bro1

    You can go directly from any 602 rom.

    Version 1.2.5, that's what I've been using with no lag or problems at all.

    So this is more stable now yes? I ran one of the first builds and it was buggy.
  24. Steven58


    It's been very stable for me, bro, fyi. I recommend it. It doesn't mean I'm gonna keep it, but I recommend it. I am running with 145 mbs of free ram. Unheard of w/Blur.

    Dido. .10 didn't wanna play nice on my phone either. .20 on the other hand works much better but is still ever so lightly glitchy.
