Let's start.
System: Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread)
DSC ROM is based on Olleh 407/406 beta ROM.
Our team point is to provide best ROM for Streak, stable and fast enough for everyday use.
(and making waiting offical Dell release a bit less stressful :))
DSC name was an acronym for Dell Streak Club, but now i'd say it's Dell Streak Community ROM, due to all efforts of everyone, involved in the project (v1.0 download count from my server is over 100.000 now). Thank you guys!
Take a look at Quick Solutions section. It may have an answer for your problem.

    wpa_supplicant.conf changed back.
  • 10.11.2011 - v0.54b:
    I'd consider this release as experimental, due to the following:
    1. CPU lowest frequency is set to 128MHz. This frequency also works on even lower power consumption. streakOwner's idea that proved it's usefullness. Again
    2. WiFi watchdog removed, as it consumes energy without actually helping the problem.
    3. Change in wpa_supplicant.conf (to eth0), that at least seems to help uglyrooster, while not breaking anything.
    4. New, revised version of tweaks by streakOwner
    5. As a side effect of my USSD/Tether research - framework contains less Olleh/KT code, but it only make size smaller.
    --
    I would like to have any report of any regression here or in PM.
    Thank you.
  • 06.11.2011 - v0.53b:
    GingerTrue theme v1.1.
    Enforced internal WiFi watchdog.
    Battery level on lock screen.
    streakOwner tweaks.

Quick flashing the ROM:
Instructions for fast flashing:
DSC ROM "flash me before installing" pack.
[email protected]
Extract it to some folder and run flash(flash.cmd). Instructions provided in batch file itself.
Then flash latest ROM and update.
--
Guides:
1.Guidelines for migrating from previous releases of DSC Roms.

Since you are already using a version of DSC (Dell Streak Community) you know how to do upgrade, just a reminder please dont neglect, do a dalvik-cache wipe, a cache partition wipe and a fix permission from the StreakMod advanced menu.
Optional, you can also recalibrate your battery by wiping battery data, while you are still flashing things , but be sure the battery was at 100 % before you stared flashing the updates and that the usb is still connected at the time of instalation, once you reboot, remove the usb cable and dont forget to let the first time your battery to drain out totaly until the phone shuts down by itself.

2.Guidelines for migrating form other Gingerbread based ROMs.

Coming from other Gingerbread Custom ROMs to DSC you need to be sure that you have the latest baseband 406 installed already,if you dont know which one you are actually using you can check easily on your phone, find Settings/About Phone/ and check the Baseband version (7th row), should read something like GAUSB1A140614-XX, if you dont see the 406 numbers than you have to update your baseband, as DSC requires and is tested to work with the latest 406 from Dell. To be sure nothing will go wrong during the flashing, it is highly adviced and recommended to use the DSC_flashme2.zip provided by (_n0p_) this way the human error during the flashing process is omitted. All you need is working Windows installation (32bit versions are tested) and the latest drivers form Dell installed on the PC. You need to extract the content of the zip file on any folder you like or the default folder offered by the system, DSC_flashme , but be sure to be easily accesed, you can remove the folder to any place you like after the flashing process, but since the adb.exe sits there , better dont delete it since logcats are highly apprechiated by the DSC team, to find out and erradicate bugs and problems. After the folder is in place , locate the flash.bat and double click on it, a windows DOS terminal will open, the instructions are clear for you , since you are supposedly familiar with such procedure before.

After the first reboot, continue with StreakMod menu to flash DSC which you have already put on your SDcard beforehand. You are required to wipe dalvik, wipe cache partitions and fix permissions before you conntinue with the reboot, due to changes between kernels used in different customs ROMs you are required to calibrate your battery first thing after the system boots.

3.Guide for migrating from Custom Froyo ROMs.

Many of the things are the same as above " Migrating form Other Gingerbread based ROMs", such as the upgrading of the Baseband files, the procedure is the same, note that some apps arent optimised or you might have trouble running them in GB , that is a issue you have to deal with your application developer.

4.Guidelines for migrating from Stock Froyo ROMs.

Running a custom ROM has its advantages and disadvantage (you woid your warranty), advantages are many thou nandroid backups, speed , flexibility, root ability, imporved battery life, tweaks to make your Streak do more than you are used to, quick response from the devs for daily issues etc.

Custom ROMs dont come in .pkg format as do OTA from Dell, but custom ROMs do come in .zip files, which then need to be flashed (installed) into your Streak.To make this possible you need first to install a modified image called StreakMod which would make it possible for you to install DSC. StreakMod is provided also from DSC in the pack DSC_flashme2.zip provided by (_n0p_).

Download the DSC_flashme2.zip provided by (_n0p_) All you need is working Windows installation (32bit versions are tested) and the latest drivers form Dell installed on the PC.

You need to download the main DSC ROM only form the links provided on the first post of DSC in XDA thread, copy it on the root of your SDcard where they can be easily accesed, or you can open a folder called DSC, and you can put there all the zip files from DSC, but remmember the place , as you will need to find those files later from StreakMod menu.


You need to extract the content of the DSC_flashme2.zip file on any folder you like or the default folder offered by the system, DSC_flashme , but be sure to be easily accesed, you can remove the folder to any place you like after the flashing process,

Now be sure you have charged your streak to 100% before you start installing DSC. DO NOT connect your Streak with the PC using the usb connector yet. Power your streak on and immedialty press the camera button, you will see a white screen, this is called the FASTBOOT mode "Wait for SD detect...." then you will see "FastBoot" tap on it and the streak will enter the FastBoot-Mode , you will see "Wait for USB FastBoot detect ...." wait 20 seconds then plug your usb connector to the mobile and after some seconds you will see "FASTBOOT_MODE", now you are ready to turn to your PC again and .....

After the folder is in place, locate the flash.bat and double click on it, a windows DOS terminal will open, follow the instructions there and reboot immediatly after you see the Dell logo within seconds you need to press and keep pressed both volume butons on the side of and then you will have access to Dell menu, select the second option by using the Volume buttons to go up and down the menu, once the second choice "upgrade...." press the camera button and wait several seconds, then a Dell logo with a triangle will appear, that is the StreakMod menu, try navigating the menu up and down with the volume buttons, and once second choice there " update using zip" is highlighted, press the camera button , then you will go to a another menu , where using the same volume buttons , you can navigate thru to find the place where you uploaded the DSC zip file , then once highlaghted press the camara button again and you will see the DSC_script doing its job, once finished , you need to press back button, and go back to the first menu where you select reboot. Once streak is rebooting agian keep your fingers press on both volume buttons, where you will see the Dell menu, now chose the first option, factory reset,streak will reboot by itself, let it reboot , you will see Dell logo, and then the DSC boot animation, wait now patience, if you have done all the above , nothing can go wrong, wait a little , then wait some more , bcs a lot of files is being genearated for first time, etc so this process can take some time, 15 minutes, if you have seen the DSC boot animation, it means everything is ok, otherwise you need to repeat the process again.

Help us, sending bugreports:
Connect Streak to PC.
Dump log (i assume if you have flashed this ROM, you know what "adb" command is):
Code:
adb logcat -d >mylog.txt
If bug causes Streak to reboot, do this:
Connect Streak to PC, issue command:
Code:
adb logcat >mylog.txt
and try to reproduce the issue. (adb will automatically disconnect on reboot).

Send me "mylog.txt" or attach to this thread.
My e-mail is n0p[at]ukr[dot]net

NO Internet...

Everything seems to be working great. The OC makes it a little snappier, at least enough to notice it... just having ONE problem though, I don't have any connectivity... I have a wifi signal but it won't connect, it says connected in the settings but I can't browse or connect to anything that needs internet. Same situation with 3G, but with 3G I don't even get the wireless symbol in the status bar..

Gimme a couple days... I immediately nandroided back to my install of 2.4... I'll try this one again in a couple of days when I get a couple of hours of spare time...

I tried flashing the amss and dsp1 files for Steve and fards build but it didn't help, and oddly enough when I nandroided back to their build, I had to reboot twice before I could regain connectivitiy... like you said, quite odd

2 days with this Rom and quite satisfied. I have random reboots these seem to occur only After the processor has completed some heavy tasks I.e online flash content. Example I drove 3 hours using sygic navigator and never had a problem then I closed sygic and removed car power adapter checked 2 minutes later the screen was black and had to remove the battery as it didn't turn on anymore.
What I like about this rom is that it is quick and the dell stage removed, the battery's percentage and the phone apk is ok with higher dpi and overall apart the reboots mentioned seems stable enough for day use. Please keep track of the new updates and post them.

Sorry I didn't get you the logs, it may have been a phone problem... when I nandroided back to my original Gingerbread I couldn't connect either so I flashed the amss and dsp1 and still had no luck.... so I went back to bare stock and started from scratch and now I am able to connect...

BUT have run across another issue, I can update the Superuser app but it won't update the binary... so I manually replaced it and then wasn't able to use any apps that needed root... so I put the old one back, still no root; I had to flash the ROM again to be able to use ROOT apps

What do i clearly see - that's not a log of clean install.
Application permissions are broken, for start.
How did you migrate to this ROM?
--
If you want to upgrade Superuser+su, which i don't recommend, update busybox first and make sure it supports "busybox which" command.
