and all went well. my x8 is now running fast but the battery drains extremly fast. i did clean battery stats, lower the display brightness.i did reset the phone to original and use it for 3 days with no apps installed or sd card inserted.i even restored to it;s original state using pc companion for installing the stock 2.1 i rooted again and do the update to gingerdx procedure again, clean the battery stats again and no effect.totay i charged the phone twice.after a google search i found a discution on a forum about a an app named RAM mannager that manages the ram according to usser;s preferences but in free version it's only une option that i can use:balance. others are locked. neither that resolved this issue. but i noticed that i have about 48-51 free mb in idle mode( using mini info widget app).oh i forgot to say,i switched off the window animations and background data and used no wifi. as i said just talking with no aps installed..

Pressed thanks instead of reply...well .
I think play music+maps are a killer couple.
Make sure you have gps off and that you're not running all day with 3g on (data). Also, tell us what apps are shown in applications -> running services and in cached services (press menu button when in running services)..and, is sync on?

Edit: ok, you've allready said sync/background data is off...
Just tell us what apps are shown in running/cached apps. I get around 2days with my style of use (wifi/3g/sync sometimes on/background data always on/bunch of useless apps&widgets) but i've removed maps/play music that were always active..

Sent from my X8

OFFICIAL THREAD

................................................
MY GOAL!! (READ BEFORE SCROLLING DOWN)
................................................
Before you continue into the next part, please READ HERE!

Of course, my goal is to provide help to people who are having problems with bugs and installation. If you reading this now, please remember this FOREVER:

- Ask your questions here, rather than spamming the GDX thread!! I really pity B.Jay & Eagleeyetom for reading stupid posts...

................................................
BUGS LIST & SOLUTIONS...
...............................................
(X) means confirmed.
(?) means not confirmed.
................................................
:: v025 Bugs ::
................................................

- Transparent Status Bar (X)
Solution: Don't set transparent status bar in Settings
OR
Use a compatible theme and launcher.

- Phone Crashes When Received a Call while using an app that requires more memory resulting in unable to answer the call. Some people also experience lags when received a call. (X)
Solution: Disable Call Me Louder in GingerDX settings.

- FM Radio is buggy, like the speaker and headphones bug. (X)
Solution: B.Jay had informed he won't be fixing this bug. So, try using a internet radio app. Search it on Play Store. Or, try replacing the Radio.apk with radios from other ROMs.

- Phone suddenly reboot (X)
Solution: Probably on low memory.
Too many big apps installed. Uninstall useless ones. Using Alfs may reduce this problem.

- CPU Frequency Settings in Cyanogenmod Settings Is Not Working. (X)
Solution: Use SetCPU to set frequencies
OR
Install a custom kernel.

- Root Browser sometimes hangs or force close. (X)
Solution: Wait for developer to release new version of the program or use Root Explorer or ASTRO File Manager.

- Stock camera have zoom settings, but it is not working. (X)
Solution: Our phone don't support zooming. If you really want to zoom, use Camera ZOOM FX or some other apps with this feature.

- Google Play Music is very laggy & buggy. (X)
Solution: Install other better music players such as PlayerPro or PowerAMP.
...OR...
The stock Gingerbread Music.apk is in the "Extras" on B.Jay's MediaFire folder. Download it, and replace /system/app/Music.apk with the Stock GB one and reboot.

- Superuser (ChainsDD's) can't update the SU binary. (X)
Solution: Flash Chainfire's SuperSU
Will be updated at the given location when a new version comes out.

- A green screen appears for a split second when screen rotates. (X)
Solution: Disable the rotation animation in CyanogenMod Settings.
(Credits to biscoitu)
OR
Re-flash the ROM.


................................................
Notice:

1. 50% of the bugs can be fixed by installing a custom kernel. 80% of the bugs are not real bugs, I only list them down because someone considers it as bugs.

2. Please don't blame me for not listing any bugs here. Please report and confirm bugs here. Bear it in mind, you are not helping me, you are helping everyone that have a X8/W8 and using GingerDX!

3. No spam please! This thread is only for reference, I'm not asking the devs to fix anything at all.

4. GingerDX... really the best Gingerbread ROM ever... Cheers! Please subscribe for future updates.

5. Hit the THANKS button to support me!!

Okay, here's what you do:

1. Charge your battery to 100%.
2. In Cwm, wipe the battery stats.

Hmm.. I tried it once and it works. I forget what ROM is it from.

And, as I stated there, he would not ever fix the FM Radio.

Firstly, he dont feel like fixing something he dont use.

Secondly, he dont have the sources for it.
