This is a pretty major overhaul of Gingerbread for Streak 5

This is collaboration between myself and DjSteve, with some huge contributions from ADW_Maniac and others, you know who you are

Having spent months on this I was given a good working kernel to use,

So the full rom zip at the bottom of the post has that kernel in it

To get the best out of this rom :

You must flash these AMSS & DSP files from fastboot

if you're not happy flashing that then please don't use this rom.

now onto the nice stuff

this is a 2.3.3 rom, its pretty quick overall, and VERY stable.

it has EXT4 fs (tweaked till its nipples bleed)

it has some very funky memory hacks

OLD INFO____

[size="2"][color="#111111"][font="Arial, Verdana, sans-serif"]the kernel is based on Dells alpha kernel code, (which is why some stuff doesn't work too well)[/font][/color][/size]

[size="2"][color="#111111"][font="Arial, Verdana, sans-serif"]its a mix of lots of different things from AOSP code, to dell binaries (we're changing what we can as we go, but frankly its not easy reverse engineering these)[/font][/color][/size]

3d scores, IO scores are pretty quick

Linpack scores > 41

Fingerprint is set to 2.3.3 CRESPO to allow all market apps to be shown

Its not themed at all, so native gingerbread stylee

I've included the following key functional FREE apps (support their devs please)

VTL launcher, its a launcher designed for landscape and very configurable, also uses ADW themes

total commander rc1

volume Plus (from the mighty meltus),its gingerbread so we can have a proper equalizer!

Clocksync (helps with the timedrift)

Hackers Keyboard (stock keyboard but better!)

YOU WILL NEED TO FACTORY RESET if you flash it over a 2.2 rom

If you're flashing over 2.3 build then at least delete dalvik cache.

but factory reset is recommended

BACK UP YOUR SDCARD BEFORE FLASHING (at least the any photos!) failure to do so may see them eaten by the phantom photo fancier.

thoroughly recommend the following apps to go with this

from market

setdns

setcpu

getjar

market 313

droidiris

lgCamera (very tweakable 720p camcorder!)

Locales2

Appbrain Market

Fastweb install (works fully here)

GET YOUR COUNTRIES GPS.conf from http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1233359

extract it and copy it (with total commander) to etc/gps.conf

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Please note this is still a WORK IN PROGRESS >>>>>>>>>>

Please do not complain!

get it from

StreakDroid_2_3Beta2

please check the md5sum of the zip before flashing it

Also as mentioned in the Streakdroid 2.0 thread, for a workaround for the headset issue you can use the Toggleheadset2 widget to force output through headphones

No point

2nd thoughts - please check your links before insulting.

Your "so-called" download link is a link back to Modaco Home page

Thank you

fixed it, was definitely working when I posted it originally

Also added highlighter to the bit that says you may need to factory reset, as people still aren't reading the instructions..

force closes are caused by user NOT factory resetting

Modaco does this all the time ;)

When I posted my pulse-guide it had an annoying issue where links I posted worked for me but not for anyone else.. Not sure if this issue is still present :blink:

Really pleased to see you are still developing for the streak :D

Sadly as I need every feature of my phone I can't test it :(

First of all thanks to Fards for this new Gingerbread build.

I just have one question about:

There are workarounds for all of them, read and research you will find them...

is there really permanent workarounds for them ?

I'm mostly interested in Mic and Sensors (proximity, rotation, compass) problems...

Also, is Dell going to provide more stable sources ? do we have any chance about it ?

Drill it into your mind that Dell will NOT support the streak any further.

That way if they do then its a welcome surprise. Much better than checking for official updates every day and getting disappointed

Some of the fixes can be found in the old gingerstreak topic. Although I agree it would be better to have them all in one place ;)

Your more than welcome to do it

permanent?

Yup https://github.com/f...ak5-GingerBread have a look and fix them for me please smile.gif

mic

phone voicemail after boot. don't need to say anything, just let it connect and disconnect after that it works perfectly till next boot.

if there is an incoming call then the mic works perfectly first time.

rotation needs working on, we can't work out why it dies AWD is looking again at his code.

Psensor I haven't even tried yet, its a long way down the list for me.

----------------

I've just put together a new updatezip for the first image (kernel and a couple of libs) to test some stuff out,

power drain is a lot less with it, and I've renamed sensors to sensors.qsd8k.so (so it duplicates the 8x50 version in lib/hw) that may help some people.

update.zip is bigger than the max file size here, so grab it from xda (need to flash it over existing rom ) http://forum.xda-dev...24&postcount=70

****NEW INFO*****

I've been given a present today from someone in the East. so I think its fair that I pass it on...

this is a kernel from a gb rom, with some appropriate files to go with it. YOU must flash this AMSS to go with it..

http://dl.dropbox.co...52/GB3/amss.mbn

If you don't know how to flash AMSS then DO NOT TRY THIS

I'm not responsible for USER ERROR

there is no overclock or extra governers, but tbh you don't need them at the moment,

this is quick and stable staggeringly so. it will do for a few weeks!

PLEASE flash the main gb2_3 rom then this one (or combine if you want to) but flash the amss as well.

*****

for anyone having rotation issues can you delete the sensors.qsd8k and sensors.8x50 from the /system/lib/hw/ folder so that there is only the sensors.default.so in there please. ****

Sensors work (lightsensors seems dodgy) everything else seems rock solid, I've tweaked the ramdisk quite a bit to pull into line with my build, suspend works, battery life is staggeringly good so far

zip is too big to attach here, so grab it from xda till I combine it with the original and edit the post

flash the original SD 2_3 then this one and the AMSS

OMG , I can't believe.

Fards,

is it really that good ? I mean is it really solving the problems that you've mentioned ? (sensors, mic...)

Streak is my only Android phone so I am trying to be safe as possible.

I assume that I will have to factory reset, so if something goes bad, I will have to do it twice (which is really hard for me)

p.s : excuse me if I seem to be asking too much. English is not my primary language, so sometimes people get me wrong. I am not intending to be arrogant.

btw, does it have front camera access and video call option (on GSM network, not IP) ?

Ive been using updated rom nearly 5 hours. Like it. Pretty stable

Had a few fcs but a reboot soon solved that

Orientation seems to be stuck in landscape. Using adw stuck in portrait and poweramp lockscreen is forced to portrait so very useable.

Nice and snappy even without oc.

Copy and paste in gingerbread has made my life complete.

First impressions:

Force close at the start, not a big deal

Real smooth, impressed

Everything seems to work

INSTANT GPS LOCK?!! I've never had this before on any device / rom. Indoors too! Really impressed!

Still checking / testing, but this looks almost perfect atm!

Some more impressions:

Launcher is a little jolty, not a smooth as in other roms

3d graphics works fine

Google maps is smoother than usual

Had two strange freezes where the touch screen and buttons stopped working when using google plus (Needed a restart to solve). However the phone itself lagged then seemed to continue working (Lockscreen, screen on/off, blinking typing cursor)

I will continue testing and posting here. I recommend you try it yourself ;)
