StreakDroid 2.0.0 ( aka GingerStreak ) Release Post
Official StreakDroid Website:StreakDroid.com


A FACTORY RESET WILL BE NEEDED TO ALLOW THIS TO BOOT CORRECTLY DUE TO THE NUMBER OF CHANGES, SO BACKUP IS RECOMMENDED

( Disclaimer : As before, this ROM is heavily updated and still being developed at a fairly rapid pace. Bugs are listed below.)

2.0 > OVERVIEW/SUMMARY OF INSTALLATION PROCESS

1.Download Streakdroid5-2.0.zip from the links below
2.Boot into StreakMod or Clockwork Recovery
3.Select Update from Zip File > Select Zip File From SD Card > StreakDroid5-2.0.zip
4.Wait for installation.
5.First Boot may take longer than a normal boot. Things are being installed, stuff is being generated. Patience.
6.Enjoy.

Most Recent Version: v2.0.0

Known Issues:
Superuser seems to possibly have issues, cant seem to pin it down yet but seems that updating superuser from market helps for some.
GPS and 720p video REQUIRE the engineering baseband and dsp below to be flashed in fastboot.
Graphics performance is not as great as id like, still working on that though

Nice, an hour, and I have to update from beta :rolleyes:

* mirrored in my dropbox
**note, just saw on Twitter that Steve pulled the baseband cause he didn't like the idea of people flashing a "engineering" or unofficial baseband, so at the moment, flashing this is NOT recommended.
*removed, if anyone wants to go against Steves advice, PM me <_<

**You're welcome engadget, I tipped you <5 minutes after the post went up, thats why I posted this picture too, thanks for the mention :P **

thanks so much! my streak's LCD is being repaired by geek squad, cant wait to run this.

does this gingerbread flash new bootloaders?, as I have read in galaxy S forums, if it does, there may be an issue trying to downgrade.


thanks again, excellent job!

thansk again, excellent job!

No, not the bootloader, it DOES require that you flash the Baseband (amss) in fastboot, but this can be easily reverted on the streak.

Wow thanks for the release!

A couple nooby questions:
Does a nandroid backup also backup Baseband and DSP?
else
Should I make a backup of the original Baseband DSP?
How can I make a backup of the origonal Baseband and DSP?

Would flashing an official Dell Update (2.2.2) restore the Baseband and DSP? (In which case there is no need to backup)

Thanks!

bear in mind performance is not as high as on 2.2 but its certainly usable enough.

First Thoughts

I get 2 dell small logos during boot 1 ontop of another. It used to be 1 large one. Not an issue boots fine
Scrolling on menus,homescreen is a bit laggy. 100% usable though. Speed seems fine in such things as gallery, go figure
Facebook sync is not working for me.

Awesome first release! I love it.

Just out of curiousity, seeing as you're saying this isn't as speedy as 2.2, gonna completely dump 1.9.1 or still give it a release?

How does HDMI and audio out work from the dock? That was the only thing holding me back before. I use mine quite frequently.

And you, Mr. Steve sir, are indeed a legend. Instead of donating, how about we get an engraved backplate for your Streak? Hehe

First impressions:
Handel like my old blade (Usably slow)
Vibrate on capacitive buttons seems hit and miss (Long press home works, others don't vibrate)
Can't get Adobe Flash to work reliably (May need a fresh install from market)
Camera app is fast and responsive (Unlike the 2.2 app)
Gingerbread!

Overall, with some speed tweaks, this will be a great rom!

1st of all, new amss and dsp1 were working on mine with 1.9, so no mega problem going back.

Can't get auto rotate to work (tried switching off and back on again - no go)
When using Quadrant (around 1400) there are no textures on the 3D models ???

Otherwise nice - gallery very fast & smooth

Auto rotate working after switching to ADWlauncher exe
