Let's see...if the timeline holds true for people in the United States, that means
Dell "should" release it sometime in what, August of 2012? LOL.
By that time, should be well into use the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Lack of support from Dell is probably the #1 reason a lot of us, even though they
love the device, won't be tempted to purchase another Dell device ;)

Rom:
Version: 407
Build: 20707
Android version: 2.3.3
Build date: Dec 1, 2011

Changelog:
  • First official 2.3.3 pkg
  • Dell Stage 1.5
  • Swype 2.27.69.19339
  • BB version is named GAUSB1A1406214-xx instead of GAUSB1A140714-xx

It's exactly as simple as it sounds, it is only a marginal update from 406, but it's an official PKG. Recommended to flash the pkg for the proper basebands as per the general recommendation. (ie. 360 for any froyo custom rom users and this one for any gingerbread custom rom users) Manually flashing the amss and dsp1 is NOT recommended if it can be avoided, now that it is out it CAN be avoided.

Guides:
(Read this to learn how to flash recoveries with fastboot)

Install instructions:
  1. Recommended: make a backup of userdata with preferred method
  2. Flash a region 14 recovery: stock 407 recovery.img
  3. download 407 update.pkg
  4. copy update.pkg to sdcard
  5. reboot into recovery mode
  6. follow onscreen instructions
  7. finished
  8. optional: reinstall streakmod
  9. optional: root with superuser.zip

Stock Deodexed + slimmed varient:
407 is available as a zipaligned, deodexed, and slimmed down version:
It has had all it's bundleware and enginneringmode apps removed.

Mod compability:
  • From 406 compatable roms:
    • Portrait mod
    • Theme mods

All previous GB based roms are 406 compatable, so any mods that were designed for 406 should work on 407

Can't wait to install new ROM!

Installed it works pretty quick. Hopefully wifi works good.

Sent from my Dell Streak

That's the one thing Im looking for the most. Im currently doing a Nandroid Backup.

What version of stage is it using?

Any other details that you can give us about the new ROM?

Shane, would you do me a favor?
Get libril*.so from /system/lib and upload somewhere.
I'm on gprs right now, so cannot download full rom and eager to check ril modules.

    Dude, don't wait any longer to move to a custom ROM. I did the same thing you did, going to 407 first. There are so many issues with it, I wish I'd made the jump to DSC ROM sooner. Everything works now, and is so much smoother than 407 was. I'm very pleased with DSC as it stands now. It's convinced me to hang onto the Streak for a little longer, maybe see what the next Nexus device is like.

    I got that when I had the wrong recovery flashed. If you are running a stock rom and flash the correct recovery, DO NOT let your phone boot after flashing the recovery. If you do, the stock recovery for your rom will be reinstalled upon boot. Flash the necessary recovery and do not reboot. Pull the battery, and immediately power up into recovery (both volume buttons). Update again and see if the problem remains.

    Once i install this. Can i then install Streaknod? Or will phone no longer be rooted?
    After installing this, fastboot flash streakmod, then go directly in streakmod and flash superuser.zip. You will now be rooted. Also, since this is a stock rom, when it boots it will overwrite streakmod with stock recovery. In /system folder there is a file named something along the lines of install-recovery-from-boot.p or similar. Delete this and it won't overwrite.
