How to “Sensify” your GingerDX. This is not real sense, but it’s nice
1. First you need Launcher Pro Sense. Search on the net for apk.
2. Install old Fancy Widget (I’m using v1.3.0), or Launcher Pro Sense Widgets
3. Install NTSense, a theme for CM7, and apply it in Theme Chooser
4. Use Sense Live Wallpaper (will be included in v013+)
5. Use Sense Lockscreen in GingerDX settings
Your X8 will look great! :-)

If you have battery drain, try the following:

  • Clear battery stats in xRecovery
  • Freeze unused services (like Email, DSP Manager, Maps). This is important.
  • Turn off ‘Allow mock locations’. [unconfirmed]
  • Don’t set brightness too high
  • Don’t install too many unused apps.
  • Turn off WiFi, 2G, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth when unused
  • Turn OFF LED Succession. It’s turned of by default, but maybe there are some people still leaving it on.
  • Reboot after you listen to music. Music service caused battery drain (in the past) for me, even when I stopped listening to music.
