[ROM] Nils' Business GingerSense 3.5 - GB 2.3.5 - (10/3/11 v1.4)
Add-Ons, Mods and Recommendations

Interested in doing your own theming? Check out the Ultimate Online Theme Kitchen

Lets you select battery styles, icons for all over, task bar mods, and even boot animations.

Use the framework-res.apk, com.htc.resources.apk, and SystemUI.apk from the ROM zip folder

==============================================
Helpful hints on battery life:
  • Look in Settings > Accounts & Sync and make sure you are not syncing anything you don't care about like news and stocks, etc. Leave them to update when opened. Same with E-Mail.
  • Go into the people/contacts and make sure you are only syncing contacts you need. For example I use Outlook and turned off Google and phone.
  • Turn off WiFi when you are not in range or need it. I boosted the search frequency time but it still helps to not have it searching at all
  • Adjust screen brightness to say 50% then put it on auto.
  • In Settings > Location turn off GPS and Phone Finder. That assumes you don't care about Phone Finder.
  • In Settings > Privacy turn off automatic backups if you don't use them
  • In Settings > Power turn of efficiency
  • In Settings > Applications > Manage Applications uninstall ES File Explorer and HTC_IME mod (My black keyboard) if you don't use them. EFS runs in the background all the time.
  • In Settings > Applications > Manage Applications uninstall Netflix if you don't use it.
  • Look in Settings > Applications and see if you have any apps that run all the time that you don't really use and uninstall them.
If I think of more I will add them.

Most of these use battery but also use RAM so you can save on both.

==============================================
Flash-able Add-Ons and Mods

Flash the following in Recovery
:
NOTE: These will only work on this ROM unless you rename the folders in the zip files to another 3.5 ROM's layout

This is the same as above without QuickLaunch

Stock GB No % Battery for v1.x Here

NOTE: You could also create a no % battery in the UOT kitchen from current framework files

Stock GB ROM Here
This is the stock GingerBread leak (Safe Flash) for purists - Use to reset phone to stock

Stock GB Kernel Here
This is the stock GingerBread leak kernel for this ROM

Install the following from SD Card like any other application:

Custom Black Keyboard Here Enable in settings then text box

================================================
Radios

  • Copy to root of SD Card (Card must be formatted FAT32)

  • Latest Google apps from market

NOTE: See posts 2 and 3 for known problems, additional updates, changes, recommendations, and add-ons

INSTRUCTIONS

Requirements:
▪ Clockworkmod Recovery 3.x or higher
▪ Radio 2.x (Try different ones to see which works best for you. I am using the 07.07 radio)
▪ hboot 0.92 Required (See this post #635 for hboot 0.92 and instructions)
▪ A Full Wipe Highly Recommended! (Required if this is the first version you are installing)

NOTE: Will not flash over anything but this ROM.

Installation:

▪ Copy ROM to root of the SDCARD
▪ Boot into recovery
▪ Factory Reset
▪ Format system in mounts
▪ Install it using "Install Zip From SD" Card option
▪ Boot - NOTE: Be patient on first boot since it may sit for a few minutes
▪ Skip everything in settings for first install
▪ Avoid Google and Titanium restores if possible.

DISCLAIMER: As usual, flash at your own risk and don't forget to backup your current installation before flashing.


Download - Version 2.2 >> Download - After reading instructions
NOTE: MD5 = On Download Site

IMPORTANT: Won't flash over anything unless I say otherwise.

RULE OF THUMB: If you choose to flash over without a wipe and have lags, FC's, things missing, or things just don't work right then flash again with a complete wipe as follows

If you have trouble after flashing or stuck on splash screen do the following:
  1. Pull battery if necessary
  2. Enter recovery
  3. Make sure your on hboot .92
  4. Make sure your on CWM 3x or higher
  5. Factory/Reset
  6. Format system in mounts
  7. Re-Flash ROM from SD Card
  8. ReBoot
NOTE: If you are still having problems (FC's, 3G drops, etc.) do the following:

CLEAN AND REFRESH THE PHONE WITH THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
(Do not install with Rom Manager)
  1. Download the Stock GB ROM Here
  2. Check MD5
  3. Put it on your SD Card
  4. Reboot to recovery (Do not install with Rom Manager)
  5. Factory reset on main menu
  6. Format System on mount menu
  7. Flash the stock ROM from 1
  8. Boot ROM
  9. Skip everything in settings
  10. Do a *228 option 2
  11. Log into the market - Make sure you skip/uncheck the restore option
  12. STOP HERE AND DO THE FOLLOWING
INSTALL MY ROM (Do not install with Rom Manager)
  1. Download the current version of this ROM from above
  2. Check MD5
  3. Put it on your SD Card
  4. Reboot into recovery
  5. Factory reset on main menu
  6. Format System on mount menu
  7. Flash the current version of this ROM
  8. Boot ROM
  9. Skip everything in settings
  10. Do a *228 option 2 in the dialer
  11. Log into the market - Make sure you skip/uncheck the restore option
  12. Set up but do not restore anything
  13. Install your apps manually from either the market or your SD Card
  14. Let me know how it is running
My theory is that other ROM's leave residue that can cause problems with the first install of my ROM.
