Any 2.3 ROMs around?

26 posts in this topic

Posted

I searched for "2.3" on the first page of the "ZTE Blade ROMs & ROM customisation" forum and nothing came up, so I thought I'd create this thread.

Japanese Jellyfish RLS9 runs 2.2, but since Android 2.3 is out, I'd like to give that a go.

Cyanogenmod 7 is based on 2.3, as it's now officially supported, we can expect nightly and stable builds soon.

Seconded. Cyanogenmod7 is pretty stable now, usable everyday etc. It's like 2.3 on steroids. There is no competition.

It's not like they added a ton of bloatware either it's just...wonderful.

130 odd views on your thread and no reply, seems the answer is not as obvious as I had hoped!

It's flipping fast and has a ton of options. I guess most people interested in it are too busy playing with it to reply. :D

Google it and I'm sure you'll find tons of stuff. This forum isn't the only place to get info :D

The extra options and customizability are its main feature really.

i'm on CM7 and i'd say that battery life is slightly worse compared to 2.1/2.2 roms.

It is if you don't enable sleep mode, in Spare parts under "End button behavior". If you set this latter to "Go to sleep" then it hardly even consumes battery, I can now stay connected to the school's wifi network all the day (I couldn't do it with 2.1 and 2.2 ZTE stuff, it lasted 2-3 hours max).

Does anyone know if 2.3 or Cyanogen allow you to set a proxy for wifi?

Now that's intersting....in its default setting the CM7 flashes the LED to indicate a missed call/SMS etc and keeps flashing it way longer than I've seen before....this is good! . I assume because it isn't going into full sleep mode?

The battery life in CM7 is currently hampered by the fact that the workaround for hanging up calls causes a lot of partial wake. It should be better once that is sorted and we can ditch the Shake app.

I have it set to "Sleep" in spare parts, it still drained a bit less than half its power over night. I even did a Battery Recalibration yesterday.

It's meant to be RC1, not a beta, but there are still a few things to iron out.

I've had Cyan's 2.3 on for a couple of days, and really not happy with battery drain, even with WiFi off.

Will go back to it after a couple more revisions me thinks. There are a lot of nice features in it, so think it'll be everyones fave ROM pretty soon.

there's a couple of 2.3 roms kicking around for other msm7227 devices, should just be a case of roll a kernel, add correct modules and make an update.zip

the lg optimus s has the same screen resolution, cpu and ram.
