ROM is discontinued click here for more information.
GingerDX
Now under new management ;)

Intro
Let's continue the fun! :)

This project is a continuation of doixanh's personal ROM, known as GingerDX.
("Ginger" as in "Gingerbread", and "DX" as in short for "doixanh")

Brought to you by TeamFun:
eagleeyetom, djnilse and AChep.

As set in stone by doixanh, the main goal is to have a fast, smooth and lightweight CM7 based ROM with some special features.

Before we begin:
Code:
package gingerdx;

import disclaimer;

public class GingerDXDisclaimer extends Disclaimer {

    /**
     * Your warranty is now likely void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * spontaneous combustion, or any other host of cosmic penalties
     * which may befall you, your family, or your phone.
     *
     */
    public GingerDXDisclaimer(){
        warranty.set(0);
    }

}

GingerDX now even has its own IRC channel!
If you feel like chatting with each other or hanging out with us:

The developers are NOT your personal support helpdesk nor root of endless knowledge.
If you are a developer or have a really urgent or tricky problem come tell us about it.

Previous AddOns (Optional)

  • Timescape for GingerDX v010+

    Flash with CWM. This package contains: AnDyX's Dualtouch for Cypress, AnDyX's smartass governor, ext3/4, X8Gesture, X8MDDI, X8UV.

Install Instructions
  • Choose the version you want to install
  • Optional: Flash Alfs or nAa through Flashtool
    Note that flashing a kernel requires you to unlock the boot loader. Check the manufacturing date of your phone here first to avoid hard bricking!

  • Reboot to CWM (v014 or newer) or xRecovery (v013 or older)
  • Install custom zip
  • Flash GAPPS
  • Install the Stock Kernel Modules AddOn or Alfs Kernel AddOn
  • Reboot
All versions will preserve your DATA partition, so don't worry about losing apps or settings.

or simplified version:

Standard procedure:
Alfs v08a:
1. Download and flash the kernel
2. Flash the ROM
3. Flash the libsensor patch
4. Flash the addon
5. Flash GAPPS
6. Reboot

Alfs v09c:
1. Flash the kernel
2. Flash the ROM
3. Flash the libsensor patch
4. Flash GAPPS
5. Reboot

nAa:
1. Flash the kernel
2. Flash the ROM
3, Flash GAPPS
4. Reboot


Themes
NOTE: We are not responsible for system instabilities caused by themes
The formerly included theme was A-Theme Lite by AChep.

GingerDX natively supports T-Mobile themes. You can find other themes in the list of available T-Mobile themes in XDA Android's theme sticky.
Download the theme of your choice onto your phone and use Theme Chooser (included in GingerDX) to select theme.


Notice
Very important. Read all before posting questions!
1. This ROM is based on doixanh's personal ROM and continued in the same philosophy to keep it as lightweight as possible. You can report bugs in this thread and suggest additions, but understand we're not obligated to fix or include them. We'll fix what is needed, and we'll include what makes sense.
2. We are NOT responsible for any bugs caused by custom-made fixes/additions/tweaks. You use them at your own risk and responsibility!
3. Regarding the copyright branding at the bottom in Lockscreen: We will NOT remove them nor provide any option to disable them. Don't PM/Post to ask for the removal or nag otherwise.
4. If you have battery drain, try the following:
  • Clear battery stats in recovery.
  • Freeze unused services (like Email, DSP Manager, Maps). This is important.
  • Turn OFF 'Allow mock locations'.
  • Don't set brightness too high.
  • Don't install too many unused apps.
  • Turn OFF WiFi, 2G, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth when not in use.
  • Turn OFF LED Succession.
  • Reboot after you listen to music. Music service caused battery drain (in the past).
Generally, doixanh and me usually get 2-3 days out of a charge (give or take depending on usage).
5. If you still have battery drain after following Step 4, try:
  • Full wipe in recovery, re-install GingerDX.
  • Use Stock ROM for several days to see if the battery problem is caused by GingerDX or not.
  • If it doesn't drain, try installing one of your apps, test battery for a day, install another one, and test.
  • and so on...
That way you will know what's the cause of your battery drain.

Me presenting Apps and explaining what they do

EXPLANATION:

Pick-Up-To-Call in Phone dialer and MMS:
i would appreciate it, if you try it out and post what do you think about it
simply enable it in gdx settings

for those who dont know what Pick-Up-To-Call in Phone dialer means :
it simply means :
1. type the number in the dialer
2. move it to your ear (or pull your finger on the proximity sensor and hold the phone vertically)
3. it calls the number
same in Mms, there it just calls the number of the chat/sms you reading

use of pick-up-to-call:
  • in Mms to call the number from the opened SMS
  • in phone dialer, calls the number you typed in

GPSCountryOptimizer:
this is an app i really recommend you to use

It was B_Jay's idea, to make an app that changes location in gps.conf of the NTP_SERVER, so everyone can set it to their home country
this should provide a much better GPS

GDXUpdateNotify:
this was an idea we were thinking about a long time,
so now it is up and it will provides you an Notification, IF a new GDX version is up

+ added Changelog under About Phone:
there you can see the changelog and even download GingerDX

    ROM is discontinued click here for more information.
    GingerDX
    Now under new management ;)

    Intro
    Let's continue the fun! :)

    This project is a continuation of doixanh's personal ROM, known as GingerDX.
    ("Ginger" as in "Gingerbread", and "DX" as in short for "doixanh")

    Brought to you by TeamFun:
    eagleeyetom, djnilse and AChep.

    As set in stone by doixanh, the main goal is to have a fast, smooth and lightweight CM7 based ROM with some special features.

    Before we begin:
    Code:
    package gingerdx;
    
    import disclaimer;
    
    public class GingerDXDisclaimer extends Disclaimer {
    
        /**
         * Your warranty is now likely void.
         *
         * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
         * spontaneous combustion, or any other host of cosmic penalties
         * which may befall you, your family, or your phone.
         *
         */
        public GingerDXDisclaimer(){
            warranty.set(0);
        }
    
    }

    GingerDX now even has its own IRC channel!
    If you feel like chatting with each other or hanging out with us:
    #GingerDX
    NOTE: Before you click the link to get to FreeNode's webchat or fire up your IRC clients:
    The developers are NOT your personal support helpdesk nor root of endless knowledge.
    If you are a developer or have a really urgent or tricky problem come tell us about it.

      Flash with CWM. This package contains: AnDyX's Dualtouch for Cypress, AnDyX's smartass governor, ext3/4, X8Gesture, X8MDDI, X8UV.

    Install Instructions
    • Choose the version you want to install
    • Optional: Flash Alfs or nAa through Flashtool
      Note that flashing a kernel requires you to unlock the boot loader. Check the manufacturing date of your phone here first to avoid hard bricking!
    • Download the ROM
    • Copy the ZIP file to your SD card
    • Reboot to CWM (v014 or newer) or xRecovery (v013 or older)
    • Install custom zip
    • Flash GAPPS

    or simplified version:

    Standard procedure:
    Alfs v08a:
    1. Download and flash the kernel
    2. Flash the ROM
    3. Flash the libsensor patch
    4. Flash the addon
    5. Flash GAPPS
    6. Reboot

    Alfs v09c:
    1. Flash the kernel
    2. Flash the ROM
    3. Flash the libsensor patch
    4. Flash GAPPS
    5. Reboot

    nAa:
    1. Flash the kernel
    2. Flash the ROM
    3, Flash GAPPS
    4. Reboot


    Themes
    NOTE: We are not responsible for system instabilities caused by themes
    The formerly included theme was A-Theme Lite by AChep.

    GingerDX natively supports T-Mobile themes. You can find other themes in the list of available T-Mobile themes in XDA Android's theme sticky.
    Download the theme of your choice onto your phone and use Theme Chooser (included in GingerDX) to select theme.


    Notice
    Very important. Read all before posting questions!
    1. This ROM is based on doixanh's personal ROM and continued in the same philosophy to keep it as lightweight as possible. You can report bugs in this thread and suggest additions, but understand we're not obligated to fix or include them. We'll fix what is needed, and we'll include what makes sense.
    2. We are NOT responsible for any bugs caused by custom-made fixes/additions/tweaks. You use them at your own risk and responsibility!
    3. Regarding the copyright branding at the bottom in Lockscreen: We will NOT remove them nor provide any option to disable them. Don't PM/Post to ask for the removal or nag otherwise.
    4. If you have battery drain, try the following:
    • Clear battery stats in recovery.
    • Freeze unused services (like Email, DSP Manager, Maps). This is important.
    • Turn OFF 'Allow mock locations'.
    • Don't set brightness too high.
    • Don't install too many unused apps.
    • Turn OFF WiFi, 2G, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth when not in use.
    • Turn OFF LED Succession.
    • Reboot after you listen to music. Music service caused battery drain (in the past).
    Generally, doixanh and me usually get 2-3 days out of a charge (give or take depending on usage).
    5. If you still have battery drain after following Step 4, try:
    • Full wipe in recovery, re-install GingerDX.
    • Use Stock ROM for several days to see if the battery problem is caused by GingerDX or not.
    • If it doesn't drain, try installing one of your apps, test battery for a day, install another one, and test.
    • and so on...
    That way you will know what's the cause of your battery drain.

      • Nightly CM7 Hero 149 (CM 7.1.0 pre)
      • Wifi tweak to prevent reboot with adhoc when screen off

      • Enabled CM's "Custom light levels" and "Allow light decrease" by default

    • August 08 v007. All FroyoBread features!
      • Transparent Status Bar support for themes! Note: There is limitation for transparent status bar, caused by different launchers. Live wallpapers work flawlessly. See here.

      • Configuration section for GingerDX in CyanogenMod Settings.

    OUR BANNERS​

    Good Bye!

    It's been over a year when me and B.Jay took over the GingerDX ROM from doixanh. Through these months our team evolved and we gained much experience, but every story has an end, so does GingerDX.

    Why we decided to discontinue this project? Well, there are few factors and I'll try to tell them, as we always treat, you, our dear users, fair.

    1. 3/4 of our members don't use X8 right now. We have switched to some more powerful devices, as X8 was our first Android phone, but it was released 2.5 year ago (you know how fast the Android world runs).
    2. We have no time at the moment. Our real lives strike back with many problems and we have to earn some money for living ;)
    3. The 2.6.32 plan has failed as the lack of time and some serious problems with compatibility were serious reasons to abandon this project.
    4. We would like to try something new with Jellybean and X8 is way too old to run it on an acceptable level (I know some users will disagree with me, but that's a fact)

    It's getting sentimental, but it's really a hard decision for us to make, but we were thinking about it for a long time. I want to thank few people who always supported us:
    @SMillerNL - for a big donation and being a great admin of our site
    @GermainZ - for being a friendly guy, who always makes us happy :)
    @laufersteppenwolf - for maintaining a Q&A thread
    @shineworld - for his technical support and being a good friend
    @NinoRapis - for donation :)
    And all users of our small ROM. Without you having it would've been pointless.

    Our sources are still on our Github, so feel free to make use of them. Thank you and see you around!

    Me presenting Apps and explaining what they do

    EXPLANATION:

    Pick-Up-To-Call in Phone dialer and MMS:
    i would appreciate it, if you try it out and post what do you think about it
    simply enable it in gdx settings

    for those who dont know what Pick-Up-To-Call in Phone dialer means :
    it simply means :
    1. type the number in the dialer
    2. move it to your ear (or pull your finger on the proximity sensor and hold the phone vertically)
    3. it calls the number
    same in Mms, there it just calls the number of the chat/sms you reading

    use of pick-up-to-call:
    • in Mms to call the number from the opened SMS
    • in phone dialer, calls the number you typed in

    GPSCountryOptimizer:
    this is an app i really recommend you to use

    It was B_Jay's idea, to make an app that changes location in gps.conf of the NTP_SERVER, so everyone can set it to their home country
    this should provide a much better GPS

    GDXUpdateNotify:
    this was an idea we were thinking about a long time,
    so now it is up and it will provides you an Notification, IF a new GDX version is up

    + added Changelog under About Phone:
    there you can see the changelog and even download GingerDX
