Here it is:

The GingerMOD



What's that?
This is an AOSPized Version of the STOCK firmware, for whoever wants an AOSP experience BUT don't want to renounce to Samsung experience!

What lead me to do that:

GPU Browser
TV-Out
FM Radio
TW Camera

Now thoose are the main reasons I wanted to start from a stock rom and Remove TW from it!

In fact here are the only "samsuningness" left:

Browser
Camera
Calendar
Radio
Task Manager
Dialer/Phone

So HERE is What the Rom Offers to you

AOSP Gallery 3D

AOSP Clock
AOSP Calculator
AOSP Email
AOSP Music Player
AOSP File Manager
AOSP MMS.apk
AOSP Sound Recorder
AOSP Live wallpapers (form nexus s )
AOSP Keyboard (modded to be BIGGER!)
AOSP Sounds/notifications/Ringtones (form nexus s)
AOSP Bootanimation
AOSPized Look of ALL the rom:
Original Ginger icons in Framework-> See The Screenshots in Next Post!!

REMOVED ALL SAMSUNG APPS

So this Becomed Almost VANILLA gingerbread 2.3.6
What is left to AOSPize??

Dialer/Phone.apk ---> I'm still working on having AOSP Contacts/Phone working, maybe in next releases!


The Goal of the Rom is NOT TO HAVE A COMPLETE SAMSUNG EXPERIENCE
BUT To have THE BEST of What Samsung done IN AOSP ANDROID


STILL WANT SAMSUNG APPS???

With TheGingerMOD you can choose, if you want to use SetCPU to manually control CPU speed and governors
or
you can let it be done by new O/C Daemon made by rmk40.
This solution gives much better performance !!!

If you decide to use SetCPU, the O/C daemon wont affect you in any way, it will be not active.

If you want to use O/C Daemon, then read this small guide:


1- Remove any O/C tools like SetCPU, NoFrills, CPU Tuner, CPU Master etc. and reboot your device 2 times !

2- With O/C Daemon the frequencies are following:

==============================
wake_min_freq = 500000 (500 MHz)
wake_max_freq = 1200000 (1.2 GHz)
sleep_min_freq = 150000 (100 MHz)
sleep_max_freq = 150000 (200MHz)
==============================

With my test I Had a VERY bettery battery life AND MUCH better smoothness and performances!

3- If you decide to change the CPU frequencies yourself, it's very simple to do.

Just use The NEW Option in Settings->CPU SETTINGS

I do not recommend changing governors. Don't use SmartAss governor with new O/C Daemon. I recommend leaving default governors.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
With TheGingerMOD you can Now have OTA UPDATES! This includes not only having the latest Rom, and always a easy way to receive bugfixes and all! But ALSO OTA (Over The Air) Extras! Will Have ALWAYS With you the pack you want!!

So lets Start Explaining the app:

This is the main


From Here is EASY To start!
Want an update??

JUST CHECK FOR IT!

Now we have also EXTRAS In this App!!

To enable it GO IN EXTRA SETTINGS:


HERE CLICK MANAGE EXTRAS-> Press Menu Botton ->

CLICK "UPDATE FEATURED EXTRA SERVERS" And you've DONE!


Doin this you'll enable ALL Featured extra server!!
YES
Cause you can add also CUSTOM ones!!
Just have to create it!



Then you can have AUTOMATIC UPDATES!


HEre in settings you can set the interval of check! Notifications type, custom ring and vibration also!

HERE ALSO THE "Existing" SECTION!
Will let you install any EXISTING update in /sdcard/GingerMod_Updates folder!!
(created automatically!)


From Here you can APPLY or DELETE Any downloaded update!

The GingerMOD Updates is OPENSOURCE! If you want to build your own one, or simply look at the source:

www.github.com/89luca89

All is here!

THX For the App/Idea/Servers goes to:

milaq (gived me the idea!!)
