    Its pretty quiet here recently, which i guess means were all pretty happy with the ROM's were running. Team Villain have done a great job in supplying constant updates if your runing 2.1 or 2.2 who's ROMS are you using?

    Froyd here too.

    I think we're mostly villain fans here, aren't we? Modaco was ok but he hasn't done much interesting since 1.5.

    I had VR12 untill few days ago untill i installed FV1.4.4 which i find amazing, but still struggeling with the GPS, it takes a long time to catch up a signal.

    I just restored back to VR12 and tonight i'll go for a fresh clean installation to see if the GPS will work on FV1.4.4

    I DO LOVE VILLAIN WORK, amazing, thats all i can say.

    I understood from people on the forums that the GPS would work with the JU Radio and i did install it, but with no luck...

    Is the PU Radio the same one on VR12?! I can't really remember:p

    Radios are separate to ROMs, so it's not necessarily the one you were using whilst you had V12 installed. The radio would only change if you flashed a new one.

    I'm using Elelinux Froyo 1.6. It has no lag whatsoever.

    I seem to have bad luck with Villianrom releases, when I was using V14 my phone kept freezing at OC 729, and my linpack scores went from 5.0 (fresh install) down to 2.5 after I installed some new programs and placed widgets on my homescreen.

    I decided to try Elelinux and have not ran into any issues of freezing or slowing down despite the # of widgets i place on my homescreen. I'm very happy with Elelinux and would recommend it to anyone as an alternative.

    Fairly happy with it, though last few days it's been quite laggy and a few FC's here and there.

    Another on Elelinux 1.6 here. Smooth. stable and snappy. Hard to believe it's user-built from the ground up - kudos to all the ROM devs for a true open-source effort.

    Of the 2.1 releases my favourite is still MoDoCo, especially when stripped of anything remotely superfluous (to me). Sheer dung off a digging implement! :D

    I was on V12, tried RcMix which was good but then started getting some FC's and random reboots, flashed froyd 1.4.4 and enjoyed that for a couple of days but started getting FC's here and there. Not many widgets with it either so gone back to V12 now.

    So what's new in 1.5 on froyd??

    I think he meant that you dont have to wipe :)

    The devs words were something like this "if you need a wipe: do it , if not: then dont" (and then some joke about pants :p), it can run without a wipe but for some might not :) .

    I wiped too :) (and no idea if I had too, not a big deal to wipe anyway :D if you have the proper backup tools and backups)

    @ guss606: From the sound of things the GPS bug is fixed in 1.5 so any radio will work.

    Unless you have an orange branded handset the most recent radio is, I think, the one in bold here.

    Yes the GPS is fixed, not only fixed, it picks up faster and stronger.

    my Hero is unbranded, i have the JU radio, it's working fine.

    Thanks, :)

    Installed Froyd 1.5 this afternoon.........and uninstalled it this afternoon. Took a couple of photos with it and when I rotated the phone over to look at pic as a landscape, it went all blurry.

    Back on good old V12 again now

    Up dated my Elelinux from 1.5 to 1.6 today, love it! No issues at all ! I hope to see more from the developer(s) in the future


    Yea I had the same issue with Froyd Villian, fyi Elelinux doesn't have that issue, you have the option to use either the 3D gallery or another one, I use the other one it's faster.
