Well I flashed omgb6 again hoping my gps would work but no luck. It's funny cause my current Rom is skyraider 2.5.2 and on this Rom gps works great and it finds me fast were gps on gingerbread never finds me. Keeps searching for avalibality. And known fixes for this or any ideas why gps for me works .in skyraider 2.5.2 and not omgb6?

Same for me.

skyraider 2.5.2 is not an alpha gingerbread release.

i have had no problems with gps using most gb roms. i have not tried this one in awhile though.

This ROM is simply amazing. The only issue I have is it wont pick up my location. I'm just hoping that version 7 fixes that and this thing is perfect.

Trying to install through ASTRO, then click on APK which opens app manager it will only give me the option to "Uninstall" or "Launch" if I hit launch it just says "Activity not found com.androind.launcher" and if I hit uninstall it just says "uninstall not successful"...

    Original Release

    Downloads and Instructions

    Please do not download from Rom Manager. These are Very outdated builds. I cant access my old ftp, so I need to wait for my pull request to go though on github so I fix it.
    No need to flash any of my builds over CM 6
    OMGB builds are the current builds. These are the ones you want to use.
    GRH builds are based off the SDK, and are depreciated.
    SGRH was built off the first system dump of the Nexus S, and is depreciated.
    S2GRH was built off the second system dump, and is depreciated.​

    Downloads for All Builds

    This rom does not come with a SetupWizard. You need to manually add your google account under Settings > Add Accounts, or by just opening up the market and signing in.

    Your SD does not mount ot the PC like normal, so you need to use gscript. Ive already included the scripts, you just need to run them.

    Those who have an SLCD, please flash with caution. There are some who have had problems. Also, everyone please backup your SD cards. We JUST fixed mounting, and an SD card can be very easily messed up. Thanks =]

    sdcard mounting
    sped up transition animations
    added signatures to lots of the files
    edited some branding

    Hacked together ramdisk. A "ramdisk mish-mash" if you will.
    Pulled relevant files from CM. libs, /usr.
    ril from ID.
    We're lucky in that we're not the the first devs to port it. The Evo build helped us fix:
    keys, lights, lcd density... more stuff that I don't know what it QUITE does, but I pulled it anyway.

    Grab gapps from CM. I'll get a link up. Link:
    Scroll downnn. Far right. Clicky.
    EDIT: Do a full boot of the ROM. THEN flash Gapps WITHOUT WIPING. After Gapps flash, do NOT wipe anything.
    IN OTHER WORDS, DO NOT WIPE ANYTHING AFTER INSTALLING THE ROM (unless you're about to install another).

    r2DoesInc is downloading my build now. Once he's all good, I'll post link.

    And now, for the main event. What you've all come to see... the LINK!!
    Wait, I lost it. Haha, okay, here it is. The LINK!!!!
    People, please pay attention...

    I know this will just get lost in the page shuffle in a few minutes, but seriously guys - and gals - please pay attention to the OP... The versions of R2's ROM on Rom Manager are outdated and antiquated - read: obsolete. The current AND STABLE version is in the OP, OMGB-4, not 3, not 2, not 1, not SDKv5... OMGB-4. I'm sure when R2 wakes up from his well deserved nap - or gets home from his finals - he will update Rom Manager to the current release. Until then, stop looking at Rom Manager, and learn to do the flashing manually.

    Also, there is a KNOWN issue with Kernel #21 not working with SOME SLCD screens on Droid Incredible's purchased after September 10th or something like that. If you have no touch responsiveness, please install Kernel #18, which is available in the forums, and there is a link a few pages back in this thread. We are still working on Camcorder and GPS functionality, but other than those two items, the ROM is very fast and very stable. Until we get GPS fixed, location based programs will not install on your phone, so if you require the use of location based programs, WAIT until we get GPS fixed to flash this ROM.


    Sorry, but I will never understand why people release a ROM that only partially works?

    No GPS, No Video? What's the point of a half working phone?

    No disrespect meant here.... but I think it should be a standard to have a ROM 100% working before being released.

    Can't even take the time to read the other 4 pages of comments before I address this.

    Welcome to the cutting edge.
