PD98IMG_ACE_Gingerbread_20110314.zip - TEST ONLY!!! Flash with Caution!!

Enjoy :D

A little info thanks to Try4Ce:
Code:
My findings so far:

- Based on Gingerbread 2.3.3
- Build .25 as mentioned
- feels a little snappier
- only chinese and english included
- NO GOOGLE APPS
- NO GOOGLE ACCOUNT SETUP
- A lot of weird chinese apps
- HTC Market - Kind of a Google Market, but completely chinese
- Fonts are a little smaller
- Statusbar Notifications/Quick Settings buttons smaller
- Because of smaller font and images in Statusbar NO scrolling anymore when going to quick settings
- New Radio works flawlessly here. Good reception, fast GPS fix
- Vending.APK can not be installed

2nd Findings:
Code:
I will try some stuff. First I want to get google apps on there.
Got some apps from the Gingerbread build (Lee / Mike).

What works so far is:

- Superuser
- Root Explorer
- Bluetooth / WiFi / Mobile Data / Telephone / GPS / aGPS

Right now I am in the Google Account Setup. Lets see how it works out.
After that I will try to record a 720p Video and try out the Camera in total

3rd Findings:
Code:
Google Account is set up and works!
Contact Sync works, GMail as well, Google Maps too.

I realized they even stripped out Friendstream. Not the Widget itself, but the actual application (Facebook etc.). The Friendstream is being utilized for chinese community portals. Makes sense I guess, since I know that Facebook is kinda not available to the chinese people (I have a friend from china).

Going to integrate Friendstream as well... Doing all this step by step to prevent mistakes.

Code:
Okay, im kinda stuck with improving.

So far I got alot of stuff working.

- Google Apps + Google Sync
- Superuser
- SetCPU
- full english keyboard

Weird is that Mobile Data ALWAYS stays connected, regardless of an active WiFi connection.
All those chinese apps are confusing and a particular one ALWAYS crashes from time to time (dont know which one exactly).
HTC Facebook Integration seems really hard to achieve, dunno whats going on there. All needed files are there, but it just wont apply.
Location Service is NOT working. Weather App and Browser cant catch my location.

In total it seems like a totally stripped down HTC Sense UI Edition, which is actually pretty unstable. The new and smaller Rosie on the other hand seems nice to have. Gingerbread 2.3.3 didnt have a very huge impact on the performance, neither positive nor negative. It is still kinda sluggish and cant be compared to the already hugely optimized and smooth Froyo Sense UI 2.0 builds from our talented devs.

The new Radio seems rock solid. Strong signal, fast GPS lock. Dunno about the battery usage tho. Not enough testing.

Camera seemed to be similar to the previous build. And felt pretty laggy.

hope Lee and Mike pick this up and give us a better version of their roms..
CM7 still so much smoother and faster at the browser! ;)

I have Radio S-OFF and Super-CID.
How can I flash this sucker? Always did Recovery Images to flash or Update ZIPs...
I guess it has something to do with fastboot right?

    I flashed this sucker successfully.

    I removed the bootloader image and recovery image to prevent loosing something.

    My findings so far:

    - Based on Gingerbread 2.3.3
    - Build .25 as mentioned
    - feels a little snappier
    - only chinese and english included
    - NO GOOGLE APPS

    - Because of smaller font and images in Statusbar NO scrolling anymore when going to quick settings
    - New Radio works flawlessly here. Good reception, fast GPS fix
    - Vending.APK can not be installed

    I will try some workarounds to get Google Stuff into there.
