Pretty sure Google could provide a link or two.
yep. i figure some people may want to save themselves the hassle though. if they knew they could find it on google, they wouldn't have asked.
I decided to try out the stock launcher...baaad idea. Lots of problems so back to Launcher Pro Plus! Other than that, so far so good! Love the lockscreen messaging button, although it can be a little slow sometimes...I have a question about kernels though. My Droid loves the LFY kernels. Can anyone tell me what would happen if I installed one of those over this ROM? Thanks!
installed the version of swype that comes with it (yes there is a version its just a pain to get to.) but when I go to use it all I get is FC's anyone have any success with using swype that comes with it?
I don't think that would cause any issues. Easy enough to test though. Just backup your current ROM/kernel. Then flash the LFY kernel and see what happens. Reverting back is a two-minute process if things go wrong.
just tried a LFY kernel and went into a boot loop. Tried the 1.0ghz one and no go
The option to revert to the stock music player appears to be broken in this release. No matter how many times I try running the "Stock Music App" option under UD settings, the ugly and buggy "Elliot Stocker" music app remains. This is an absolute showstopper for me.
Is there any way to get the keyboard back to white with each letter in a little box (like stock)? I love everything about this ROM except for the themed keyboard. I've been messing around in the options, but haven't found a way to change the color/style/theme of the keyboard...
I've held off 2.3 as I only just flashed 2.1 when it came out. It truly flies, that's for sure, and I've always loved the customizations. My only real quirk is the battery life. I've been using the stock kernel as it's more than enough, but perhaps a diff one would help.
My question is have people, specifically users who bounce around diff ROMs, experienced poor battery life with 2.3 and did it improve from 2.1?
I can't seem to figure this out...Can someone tell me the name of the element I highlighted in the screenshot, black text over black isn't too effective. I thought I'd tried all of the UI elements in UD settings, can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
Like someone recently posted here, battery life is really subjective. I could use my phone in such a manner(I am running 2.1 UD)as to have the battery only last 4 hours or last, or I could use it in a manner to make the battery last 15 hours. Using the stock kernel. What I do to prolong battery life is to keep the screen as dark as I can. I don't use Bluetooth, wireless or GPS, so they are off, unless I need them, which is rare. My point is that everyone uses their phone in a different manner, therefor I have always believed that no matter what kernel/rom you use, you can get good/poor battery life
I've found that the messaging and phone sliders didn't work when I was using the rotary lock screen. When I changed back to the standard lock screen, they showed up
Wow. I love you.
Yes, you're very correct. However, I do know the majority of the available tweaks and tricks that most ROMs offer to conserve as much battery life as possible. I'm coming off a series of ROMs that offered really good to pretty great battery life, and there is a very significant difference with this ROM. It's not too uncommon, as that has been the one thing that has kept UD ROMs from being 5 star on my Droid since the update to Froyo (man, when we were on 2.1 UD was, without question, the best ROM available).
I'm experiencing pretty abysmal battery life right now with 2.1 and I was wondering if anyone noticed the same thing, but saw improvements from it on 2.3.
UD 2.1 and 2.3 have held the best battery life I have ever seen in a ROM
Great points, as well.
Flashed the LFY SLV 1.0 GHz kernel and it works fine for me...guess it just depends on your Droid.
i've had the best battery life by far with 2.3 and the nightlies...
not at first, though. the first time I flashed my battery would drop insanely fast, and then I'd plug it in and it would be fully charged within 10 minutes. so in clockwork mod recovery, under the advanced section, you can wipe battery stats. I did that, and ever since then my battery life has been as good as ever.
and i'm using p3droid 1.0 ghz kernel on performance mode, fyi...couldn't be happier
Is that the one out of ROM Manager? Thats the one i used.
just went to lfy website and dl kernel from there and it worked but the one from ROM Manager did not work. wierd.
How does one get access to dl the nightlies? I think the 12/1 nightly fixes one of my issues...
Go to http://theultimatedroid.com and register for an account. Then click on the subscribe button on the top menu and pay the $2 with PayPal. Then click on forums and scroll down until you find the nightly builds. Click on Motorola Droid and choose the one you want. The OP has the link to the file in the download manager.
I highly suggest it. It is cheap and the nightly builds are really cool.
Yeah I used the one from the LFY website too. Glad to see it worked for you!
2.1 started to get a lil buggy on me, kinda lagging in weird areas. Actually, I'm not sure I can call it lag, sort of like freezing up. Happened a lot while typing, be it text, browser, search, whatever. But this morning, it wouldn't let me press anything, but I could swipe down my notification bar and switch screens.
So yeah, I'm diving into 2.3. Seems alright so far. Gotta put this baby through the ringer.
