Very cool! Flashing now.

I took a peek at your team's work on the Vibrant forums when you popped up over here to get an idea at what we could hope to see. Very impressive. (Also sticking it to a certain not-to-be-named kangster always wins cool points with me. ;) )

EDIT: Everythings working great! Man this sucker is fast, I noticed it straight away.

Silly me :(

Thanks for clearing!

tiny change in init.rc, booting it here right now, highest nenamark yet, but i will tweak voltages tomorrow, so we get a better initial product out.
for testing, you know it's on the other thread for stock roms (you can boot it with this rom and then run the adb shell mount line from the ext4 thread, but this does not get you everything somb put in his init script)

Is there any reason the 3D scores on quadrant (in your pics) look like tiny slivers compared to devices below it?

Also, does bluetooth work after using EXT4 tweaks?

Because Quadrant doesn't properly support Nexus S/gingerbread on the graphics benchmarks lol. Imagine how much higher this thing would be :). Just add the Galaxy S 3d and 2d benchmarks to it and that's the real score :p

    Is there any reason the 3D scores on quadrant (in your pics) look like tiny slivers compared to devices below it?

    Also, does bluetooth work after using EXT4 tweaks?

    Quadrant Advanced with 2D and 3D disabled, not compatible with Quadrant Standard off other devices, only compatible with quadrant Advanced with 2D and 3D off, until they fix their OpenGL for gingerbread, no bueno for us.

    Which is one reason i use nenamark so much, it works and does not max at 65FPS like neocore and moon orbiting planet, those tests maxing out on fps will not show an increase in performance and skew the results.

    a benchmark being maxed out is actually useless for more than "works, yes/no"

    think of 3dmark having to play catch up with the various cpus, and amd/nvidia cards coming out, quadrant is outdated and outpaced and in dire need of a refresh.

    Well in case some people dont know about Team Whiskey,all i can tell ya is the team rocks and if you want a ROCK solid ROM they you can count on them to give one,Been running Team Whiskey stuff for a longer before i got the Nexus.But anyway good luck and happy new year to all.

    So there is both sides I would disagree with this positive feedback. Any negativity is apparently frowned upon on XDA but my experience was not the same as yours with TW anything. Although after trying 4 or 5 builds with nothing but issues I stopped trying and went on to Axura, which was a stable Mod. At the end of the day CM is alpha and the team is hard at work on the NS. Once that goes beta or certainly once RC then anything else is useless anyway imo. These are opinions obviously but I stand by them. I definitely will not be risking my 500 dollar non contract phone with a TW Mod and would recommend those not able to replace through TMobile to stand down and wait for CM. Modaco is also a trustworthy Mod'r. Running his R3 currently with good success.

    Nothing personal with TW and this isn't a flame. Simply giving an alternative experience with the Vibrant mods for reference for those checking this thread out.

    By wipe you mean factory reset right? Also with a wipe will I lose everything on the device like my music and saved data for apps?

    Yes, wipe data/factory reset option in clockwork. You will lose your apps and app data, but you will not lose anything on your sdcard such as your music, etc.
