[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
