Gingerbread 2.3.7

GinTonic SE 1.4 (Revival of GinTonic) is best to be used with ZombiePanicKernel

I have used doixanhs public repo build GinTonic so alot of the improvements are his work the source can be found here : Github and his thread here : Thread credits goto doixanh! He is excellent at what he's doing! Thanks mate for permission!

  • CM7.1.0
  • native keyboard light (no need for script or app)
  • very good battery life
  • fully working touchscreen even without kernel
  • complete new build I put a lot of work into
  • almost working usb tethering (still stuck on RNDIS maybe its lun1 and not lun0??)
  • full working camera
  • rewrite PointingDevice Interpreter -> No Touchbug!
  • Droidwall Ready
  • Every Flashlight/Torch app from the market works now
  • complete LDPI build (also Lockscreen,LatinInputMethod,etc..)
  • SEMC new 4 Corner launcher or ADW or whatever you want
  • latest CM source (last sync 24 October 11)
  • finally fixed Statusbar and Statusbarflashlight button
  • 480p recording without issues (remember please 480p is "only" 640*480)
  • alot of small bugfixes/performance/stability (locale, i/o,libservices, libui, etc)
  • fully working automatic brightness for display (Settings -> Display -> Automatic Brightness)

Features in the future:
  • USB Native Tethering
  • Wifi AP/ Tethering fully native
  • With ZombiePanicKernel no Chroot
  • native Keyboard App to replace SuqashiInput
  • uploading sources to git
  • add ZombiePanicKernel to ROM
  • add Kernel Features into ROM

-FMRadio App cannot be set back to speaker once set to Headphone (present since 2.5.0)


If you don't use ZombiePanicKernel you still need to flash the modules provided in the Modules zip. If you have Zombie Panic Kernel you dont need this


FlashPlayer is not working after ROM Flash
Unfortunately Flash Player needs to be installed by hand. Use The FileManager goto /system/app/FlashPlayer.apk click on it and select install

2G/3G drains battery bad and also I cannot search operator
Considering you have previously flashed 2.1.1.C.C.0 from Sony please flash this libril for your Radio OTA Version

I flashed modules and dualtouch not working and have touchbug???
Please see this post and replace the file : Different Module

Native Keyboard Light not working correctly???
Goto Settings -> Cyanogen -> Display -> Automatic Backlight -> please turn off Light Sensor Filter

I dont have overclock or dualtouch whats the matter???
Please flash the module zip if you have Stock Kernel (if you never have done anything about kernel then you most likely have Stock)
