FAQ
After I flashed this ROM my phone does not boot, why?
Take out the battery and boot to CWM-Recovery and do a full wipe, if you cant boot to CWM-Recovery try the next step.

I bricked my phone, help me!
Remove your battery and put it back and use Flashtool to flash this (2.1.1.A.0.6 Nordic firmware with latest SE kernel and baseband).

I don’t like the miniCM theme, how can I change it?
You can change theme with the app theme chooser.

Does it include real dual touch?
No it is not real dual touch but it works fine for pinch-zooming.

Why doesn’t WiFi work for me?
Try to delete all remembered networks or delete /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf, if that does not work try a full wipe.

How can I change the keyboard?
Open the SMS-app and hold the “Type to compose” and select input method and select another keyboard.

Dual touch does not work.
Download the dualtouch module from here and extract it and overwite the x8gesture with the .ko file.

If you like this ROM feel free to donate to nobodyAtall.

[ROM] GingerDX | v004 | update for x8


Installation thread click here

intro
Ok, let’s have some other fun

This is also my personal ROM. Second attempt to build a ROM. I think it’s time to move on from FroyoBread. I’ve been kinda “out of idea” to improve FroyoBread. It was fun improving FroyoBread.

This time, it’s GingerDX. As you can guess, it’s gonna be a Gingerbread with DX (that’s abbreviation for my nickname) features. Many well-known features (“smooth” optimization, flip to mute/snooze…) in FroyoBread will be brought to this ROM. Basically, this ROM will be similar to FroyoBread in term of features, but different in core (CM7 vs CM6).

The main goal is to have a fast, smooth, lightweight CM7 with special features.

2D performance was greatly improved in GingerDX (compared to stock CM7) because of lots of optimizations. Optimization for 2D was the first priority for me after building CM7. Camera was a pain in the {you know what} for all Gingerbread ROMs. Starting from v005, GingerDX supports fully working Camera at 3MP and VGA Video Recording. Also, WEP adhoc is fully supported.

Like previously, I asked racht and got permission to base my ROM on his famous HACKDROID. Thank you racht. I still need to thank for your compile machine

update for x8 [ROM] X8 | HACKDROID ROMS


Hi guys,
as the title says, I managed to port the Hero/Legend/Gratia/Aria ROMs with Sense to our X8.

Installation thread click here
To install use xRecovery, busybox+xrecovery preinstalled in rom so you can restore backups after.
If upgrading from my previous rom to newer version, do Advanced Restore and restore only /system partition, all your data will be preserved.

These roms REQUIRE latest baseband version xxx15
Take the new baseband and flasher from my server here
or just the firmware if you have the flash tool already, here
Check if u need update by typing “busybox uname -a”, u need this (notice date) :
Linux localhost 2.6.29 #1 PREEMPT Fri Dec 17 18:35:45 2010 armv6l GNU/Linux
blagus – thanks a lot !

Thanks go to J&Z and Erasmux!
Enjoy !
