Serendipity VII is coming!!!!
Serendipity VII - Home
Is here: [ROM][2.3.3]
downloading as we speak. im already on 2.3.3 GB, so im gonna flash as soon as i get it downloaded. will let you guys know what i think of it. sounds promising. always a fan of serendipity
EDIT: i now have it flashed, and so far, im pleased as always. astounding and visually stunning. still clean flash right now tho, restore my TiBu as we speak. no complaints here
i was wondering why gr-12 hadnt been updated in awhile. but im up and running, restoring my files now
Since I've been content with 6.4 I haven't looked at Gingerbread-based ROMs. On the whole, are developers needing to modify their apps to work with GB, or are Froyo-friendly apps generally also GB-friendly?
i believe most 2.2 apps are pretty friendly with 2.3, i know i had to grab the stock email app from 2.2 because for whatever reason the 2.3 app wouldnt sync my school email and it worked fine. im not real sure though, mosaic III ran real well for me, a bunch of my apps were broken with obsession, so far so good on VII. ill put it through its paces one my restore finishes
Thanks. Some of my apps have had recent updates and the description spoke of working better with Gingerbread. That's what made me curious.
P.S. A belated "best wishes" for Tuscaloosa folks.
not that i know of, at least for the most part. ive yet to have an app from froyo not work on GB, personally.
ive had a much smoother experience with 2.3.3. in some apps, mainly games, sometimes it would get quite jerky, and it still does from time to time, but it really does seem smoother to me and i dont think im making that up
and thanks, i was down there the other day and its insane, it doesnt look like a whole lot of cleanup has been done but i know it has
and then the only minus i have found so far is that it doesnt have the overscrolling effect from 2.3 yet, but most other 2.3.3 roms do so im sure it will come soon
What about the "charging bug" I've read about (several variations of how it manifests itself). Any of you affected by it? If so, what happens in your case? Is it a real PITA or a minor annoyance?
what charging bug are you talking about?
i havent experienced any, or that i am aware of, on mosaic, and didnt stay on obsession long enough to find out
yeah im not sure what charging bug your referring to either. havent had any type of problem at all with it as of yet

i just read through that and never experienced any of it. my battery is better than it has ever been, and ive never unplugged it and had it low, if im not mistaken its always been at 100 or 99
Awesome! I had been running GR 12, and had been having a few minor issues here and there and was thinking of going back to Serendipity, but so glad this is out. Downloading now.
been running 7 since it released and i LOVE it best rom i have used yet
yeah i also read through that, and havent experienced any of that. mines been working/charging as good as always. hmm
I've been a fan of Assonance and Serendipity in all their iterations. Regarding VII, I'm going to wait 'til the dust settles some more (a day or two...or more). Invariably the first release is a simply a more widely adopted public beta. Nothing wrong with that, but I also want to see if subsequent releases such as 7.01, etc. can be patched as minor incrementals to the initial ROM adoption rather than requiring a more involved procedure. Plus, I'm procrastinating because the upgrade is the easy part. Its the customization (making it my own) phase that's a real PITA and requires time and patience.
i had originally planned on doing this, mainly because i had just found a new theme i liked for mosaic, but i got the itch to try something new. its inevitable that there will be updates the first few days after a rom comes out
ok so far im only just finding one problem. charged my phone overnight, unplugged this morning. my battery is now 78%, but the battery icon is still showing its at 100% full charge. the "100%" is not on the battery symbol, but the battery doesnt drain(visually). luckily i have the battery info widget so i can see the real %..
Now you've experienced what I pointed out above. Plus, these two posts from the VII forum:
"Battery charge weirdness. The same thing that others have reported with GB ROMs, I'll charge to full, then unplug and be instantly at 85%. If I then replug, I can get to 98%. This may actually just be a reporting issue and the battery IS fully charged, just showing the wrong number. And, yes, I've done two cycles and wiped stats, etc."
= = = = = = = = = =
"Also, i experienced the well known 'Android OS' battery drain bug overnight. Before i went to sleep, the battery level was at 28%, and should've been above 20% when i woke up, but the phone was dead. I checked and 'Android OS' was using 23% battery with 90min usage, second only to Display. When i went to sleep 'android os' was only at a few percent. I should also mention the phone was flashed with a fully charged battery. I have screenshots if needed. I've experienced the same battery drain about 5 times over a month's period with GR as well so this isn't anything new, and i've done enough reading to know this bug affects all i9000 based GB roms. I realize this isn't a Serendipity specific bug, but i thought i'd mention it."
Yay! I have been checking for a new update weekly. 6.4 has been doing pretty well for me, but I am jonesing for a new ROM! Gonna reatrain myself for a few days first though to let the dust settle like someone else suggested. *invoking will power *
ah yes, didnt know what you meant, but it seems i am. i also did a couple cycles and wiped battery stats. also i notice, the first overnight charge i did on S7 the other night (i forgot to mention this earlier), i charged it to 100%, while turned, and i was using it. before i went to sleep, i turned the phone off, charger still plugged in (still at 100%), woke up the next morning, unplugged it, turned it on, and it was at 84%...which makes no sense at all lol
I just flashed it, so far so good. I came from Continuum v5.5.
I havent really searched yet, but after flashing Serendipity7, I now have the Green recovery instead of the orange. anyone else have this?
also, i used a Continuum v5.5 theme on serendipity7 and its working just fine.
Im using the gingerfire blue theme from xda continuum5.5 themes
