Default [ROM] GingerDX | v031c | 11-Sep-2013

GingerDX

Intro
This project is a continuation of doixanh's personal ROM, known as GingerDX.
("Ginger" as in "Gingerbread", and "DX" as in short for "doixanh")

Brought to you by TeamFun:
eagleeyetom, djnilse and AChep.
I (GermainZ) am building GingerDX based on bieltv.3's latest sources, with permission from both TeamFun and bieltv.3.
(You can find the original GingerDX for the X8 here)

As set in stone by doixanh, the main goal is to have a fast, smooth and lightweight CM7 based ROM with some special features.

Before we begin:
Code:
package gingerdx;

import disclaimer;

public class GingerDXDisclaimer extends Disclaimer {

    /**
     * Your warranty is now likely void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * spontaneous combustion, or any other host of cosmic penalties
     * which may befall you, your family, or your phone.
     *
     */
    public GingerDXDisclaimer(){
        warranty.set(0);
    }

}
GingerDX now even has its own IRC channel!
If you feel like chatting with each other or hanging out with us:
#GingerDX
NOTE: Before you click the link to get to FreeNode's webchat or fire up your IRC clients:
The developers are NOT your personal support helpdesk nor root of endless knowledge.
If you are a developer or have a really urgent or tricky problem come tell us about it.

  • GingerDX Bugs & Solutions thread by lucastan96 (note that this thread is for the X8 GDX. It includes some universal information, but please post in *this* thread to get proper support).

Project sources and licenses
  • Our source code repository at GitHub (for GingerDX v023 onwards)

    Sources forked from Cyanogenmod are published under the terms of the Apache License 2.0
    Code contributions and binary distributions are published under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2

    NOTE: "Soft-Modders aka. WinZipers" are exempt from the licensing terms above. You are now NOT allowed to use the pre-built ROM, or any parts thereof, in any way, shape, or form. Don't bother asking for permit, you won't get it. However there is a chance to get our permission, but your project HAS to have published sources

    If you want to join in development to help advancing the ROM, or want to port it to other devices, then please drop us a PM or contact us at our IRC channel.
  • doixanh's source repository at GitHub (for GingerDX up to v022)
    Sources and binary distribution of GingerDX up to v022 are published under license terms set forth by doixanh.

Install Instructions
  • Install a CM compatible kernel (hell_lock's or Rafael.Baugis' kernels; tested with hell_lock's first kernel (first post) and Rafael.Baugis' test CM7 kernel)
  • Download GDX, as well as the CM7 Basic kernel and (optional) GApps;
  • Copy the files to your SD card;
  • Reboot to CWM;
  • Install the CM7 Basic kernel;
  • Wipe data, cache and dalvik-cache;
  • Install GDX;
  • Flash GAPPS (* If the GAPPS aren't installed correctly, mount /system before flashing the package);
  • Reboot & enjoy!

Themes
NOTE: We are not responsible for system instabilities caused by themes

GingerDX natively supports T-Mobile themes. You can find other themes in the list of available T-Mobile themes in XDA Android's theme sticky.
Download the theme of your choice onto your phone and use Theme Chooser (included in GingerDX) to select theme.

Notice
Very important. Read all before posting questions!
1. This ROM is based on doixanh's personal ROM and continued in the same philosophy to keep it as lightweight as possible. You can report bugs in this thread and suggest additions, but understand we're not obligated to fix or include them. We'll fix what is needed, and we'll include what makes sense.
2. We are NOT responsible for any bugs caused by custom-made fixes/additions/tweaks. You use them at your own risk and responsibility!
3. Regarding the copyright branding at the bottom in Lockscreen: We will NOT remove them nor provide any option to disable them. Don't PM/Post to ask for the removal or nag otherwise.
4. If you have battery drain, try the following:
  • Clear battery stats in recovery.
  • Freeze unused services (like Email, DSP Manager, Maps). This is important.
  • Turn OFF 'Allow mock locations'.
  • Don't set brightness too high.
  • Don't install too many unused apps.
  • Turn OFF WiFi, 2G, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth when not in use.
  • Reboot after you listen to music. Music service caused battery drain (in the past).
5. If you still have battery drain after following Step 4, try:
  • Full wipe in recovery, re-install GingerDX.
  • Use Stock ROM for several days to see if the battery problem is caused by GingerDX or not.
  • If it doesn't drain, try installing one of your apps, test battery for a day, install another one, and test.
  • and so on...
That way you will know what's the cause of your battery drain.

ThanksThanks also go out to Google for their great little Android.
