Somebody should ask to Paul regarding the Sense UI/Desire ROM with Gingerbread on the Nexus 1.

Its sad but he's busy playing with his 2X and he is not answering my posts.
More than never it seems to me that the Nexus 1 is a dead phone. :)


I ran MCR for over a year and it was great but not so much anymore. The gingerbread MCR VPN is broken and that is fatal as far as I'm concerned. If the VPN worked, I might have been willing to live with the weekly crash and reboot loops. Now I don't have either problem.

I gave up on the gingerbread MCR and installed the CM7 RC a few weeks ago. CM7 stable was released today. I updated to the stable release today and it works well. In fact I cannot tell the difference between CM 7.0.0 stable and RC4. They are both very stable. Everything works great and there are lots of new features to explore.

Never used anything but MCRs since buying my N1. Great ROMs all the way and I really appreciate all the work that Paul has put in.

r26 has its strengths. With Gingerbread comes improved speed and (for me) battery life but the frequent boot loops just don't make this release a usable ROM on a daily basis.

With so many new exciting Android devices coming out, I expect that's Paul's time is better spent on these devices.

For me it's time to leave this ROM behind.

CM7 is the next stop hopefully it's as good as the reviews, if not its back to stock.

I've also left this ROM in favor of CM7. No regrets so far, much more stable than the last MCR build which rebooted and bootlooped, plus extra features like trackball wake and trackball unlock. Waiting for the TrackBall Alert to support CM7 final build and I'll be totally happy.

Thank you Paul for your work, I've been using this ROM from the very start. I understand how and why the interest to the old gadgets gets lost over time in this crazy world.

Those who want to switch to CM7 and miss the app2sd feature (with the ext3 partition on the SD) should check S2E (simple2ext) Market app, just select what you want on the SD and reboot the phone (CM7 lacks built-in support for the apps on the ext partition). Very simple and works great (also shows how much space is used on each of the partitions).

I just updated my Nexus One with this....works fine except now I have no status bar. Any ideas? Everything looks normal, just no status bar up top. It's like it thinks my screen is bigger than it actually is.


same here :)

btw, cannot even access SD card on PC because there's no notification showing when USB cable is plugged in. is there any way i can access SD card using commands?

oops. went to recovery and flashed the CM ROM, everything works fine now.

Just to share my experience, I updated from a modaco froyo 2.2 without doing a wipe and without the radio. Works like a charm, my radio is 32.36.
I tried with the radio update but it failed in the middle of the radio install.

Sounds great. I'm glad that the MCR is working for you. If you ever run out of RAM and decide to use A2SD, you may encounter the boot looping issues that others (including me) have had. If you ever need to use the VPN features of your phone, rest assured that they will not work with the ROM that you are using. None of the 4 VPN choices will work under any conditions. My research led me to believe that this is due to an incompatibility between the kernel used in the MCR and the corresponding ppp-dialer dalvik code.
