Repeat all, but DON'T FLASH dsp1 of point 13, try to flash amss ONLY....

I was also under the impression that it is best to flash the rom itself first......then the amss & dsp1.

NO, DON'T FLASH DSP1 FILE, IT'S NOT NECESSARY

Now to clarify. Is that coming up from the previous build?

I ask because, why would it be posted on the first page for an updated build if it wasn't necessary?

Thanks.

Thanks, will try that now. Here goes nothin, one more time! Here's a play by play of what I have done.

1) Flashed Recovery that goes with Latest Rogers ROM via Fastboot.

2) Rebooted via Fastboot

3) Went into Recovery, flashed update.pkg (latest Rogers ROM)

4) Phone automatically reboots when completed.

5) Let phone complete boot sequence

6) Android Version 2.2.1

Baseband: GAUSB1A133932-US

Kernel Ver: 2.6.32.9-perf

OEM Ver: GAUSB1A133932

Build Num 14896

7) Tether works both USB & WiFi

8) Deleted update.pkg (just in case) off of SD Card

9) Turn off Phone

10) Dell Stock Recovery - phone reboots

11) Let phone complete boot sequence, Turn off.

12) Flashed Streakmod Recovery - latest beta v 0.3.2.8

13) Flashed amss and dsp1 from 1st page of this post

14) Rebooted via Fastboot

15) Booted into Streakmod Recovery

16) Flashed Gingerstreak 2.4 Beta 3 Rom

17) Wipe data/factory Reset, Wipe Cache Partition, Wipe Dalvik cache

18) Reboot, Dell Factory Reset

19) Reboot phone, complete boot sequence.

20) Android version 2.3.3

Baseband Ver: GAUSB1A140514-US

Kernel Ver: 2.6.35.7-perf

OEM Version: SD GingerStreak 2.4

Build Number: GingerStreak 2.4

21) Checked WiFi/USB Tether option - available

22) Turned on WiFi Portable Hot-Spot - phone reboots in about 3 sec to bootanimation, Tether UI is gone.

23) Gave up again...Reboot phone, did nandroid restore.

24) Sighed....

It is also best to come from 350+ build.......before installing these ginger builds. I came from 354 build and had no problems whatsoever.

That maybe your problem :P

I would try flashing the retail 360 pkg just to see if it'll help (In theory "retail" should be compatible with all streaks)

Here's what I found. You asked for beta tester and here I am :lol:

1) I had 2 shutdown in 6 hours while browsing -- more like a screen timeout, but without dimming animation, in which you can't unlock the screen back on with power button. Will check whether it's really a shutdown next time it happens. Probably by making a phone call to the number.

1.a) Connected to wireless network is on at the first occasion, with browser open. Signal was ok. Was holding Streak while walking downstairs, glanced at screen on for 3-4 seconds and suddenly screen shuts down.

1.B) Connected to wireless network with low signal at second occastion -- kepts disconnected/reconnected. Holding with hand, slightly move hand downwards, and move it back up, and after 2 seconds screen shuts down.

Could be caused by accelerometer driver bug?

Will try (i) screen timeout to max 30 mins, or (ii) connect with HSDPA all the time, wifi off, to pinpoint the problem.

2) USSD not working. Always "Connection error or MMI not found".

Probably unimplemented feature or wrong configuration on telephony.

3) Sending smses to shortcodes not working.

Probably unimplemented feature or wrong configuration on telephony.

This is the process that works for me every time I have to do an update, and it never fails. I believe that's because it follows the KISS principle. Keep It Simple Stupid!

  1. Boot in to fastboot
  2. flash amss
  3. flash dsp1
  4. Reboot in to recovery
  5. flash GingerStreak.zip from recovery
  6. Reboot in to recovery
  7. Factory reset
  8. Reboot.
  9. Enjoy!

Thanks Steve and Fards, this is one smooth ROM, the best 2.3 variant to date. I also appreciate how "skinny" it is. I'm bad enough at adding my own apps to bloat the device out! :-D

Coming from 360, flashed both amss and dsp1 with exact steps as yours, except step 17.

I cannot reproduce the problem though, no matter the state of wireless activations before activating wifi hotspot. Turned on with wifi on, no problem. Turned on with wifi off, no problem. Turned on with bluetooth on, no problem. Do you have any other device attempting to connect immediately after you turn on the wifi hotspot? Are you running stock launcher?

Factors to consider by priority:

1) Will wider dimensions (by 4 mm) be a problem?

2) Do you like the design? If it has design like SGS2 I would like it.

3) Will you worry on AMOLED burns when never turning off the screen?

4) No notification LED.

Those are 4 factors I'm battling with myselves right now. Price for second-hand stuff for non-mainstream devices could be interesting though :)

Honestly the GingerStreak 2.4 ROM is stable enough that I would try to find workarounds for the problems rather than going back to Froyo B)

UPDATE: I told the last sentences too early. There IS reason to go back to Froyo :lol:

Has anyone noticed DJ Steve provided and update the the zip file. Read first post.

Yeah, reflashed with the newer ones 6 hours ago.

Somehow I had a feeling that the previous ones posted on 12th is actually a newer Android build. They shared the same kernel though.

The sound quality of music player is superb in this rom.... Really enjoyed using it... Stability plus speed and many more....

Louder, yes. But clarity has go down compared to 360 ROM. It's like the sound is dsp-ed with lower sampling rate. Seems like software solution is in place.

FLAC support is partially broken -- using andLess. Some file couldn't be played at all. EDIT: I just tried Angry Birds and video performance is outstanding! Hopefully the audio problem is just a matter of testing/release priority.

If you already done the correct steps then probably your download is broken.

I had this conversation with The Manii in the Streakdroid 2.3:

You should update to 360 by installing the update.pkg then flash the 2.3 bb.

This is true for all users of 2.3, while 360 isnt explicitly required beforehand at least 350+ should be installed prior to flashing the 2.3 files. This is most important for anyone on 305

SO....to me...either your flash isn't sticking, or you should go through the motions to at least upgrade to a 350+ baseband.

Easiest way:

Download Multi-Recovery Flasher from here: MultiRecoveryFlasher.v0.8.rar (http://www.multiupload.com/ZUKZKOM2BN).

Use it to push the stock Dell 354 recovery (option 10) via fastboot mode.

Download the 354.pkg from here: http://mirror2.streakdroid.com/manii/Streak_354_15881_11.pkg

Once downloaded, rename to update.pkg and flash that with your stock recovery.

Let it boot up into it at least once. Then go back to Multi-Recovery Flasher and use it to push Streakmod recovery....

Flash the rom, and the amss & dsp1...remember to do factory resets along the way.

I know it is a pain but I think this made my transition to Ginger build painless.
