    New features / improvements in LGB

    I know there will be a changelog, and I know there are other sites out there for the default improvements in gingerbread, but I thought I would post the regular day to day improvements and features that I've found in LGB from LFY. This is good for this forum I thought because some of these are Liquid's and some are from Gingerbread itself.

    What am I missing?

    • dismiss select notifications
    • default power control widget customizations
    • SIP calling
    • on/off screen animations
    • boot animations
    • NFC
    • virtual keyboard
    • download manager
    • ext4 file system
    • long press back kill
    • quick unlock
    • lockscreen gestures
    • phone messaging sliders
    • lock home in memory
    • quiet hours for sound
    • notification power widget
    • screen turn off lock timeout (if screen sleeps 5 secs to quick unsleep before lock code enables)
    • new battery usage utility


    edit: I'm adding this link: The Google Guide to Gingerbread Tips and Tricks from EvilDobe in the preview release thread. Kudos to him.

    Jarmer,
    You mentioned 3 items that I can't find or don't know how to access properly and use.
    Ext4 file system
    -where can I find, how is it used and what preparations need to be made to SD card
    Virtual keyboard
    -No clue what you mean by this
    NFC
    -This was one of the new things for GB, that I couldn't wait to try out. I can't find where to access it. Also, I was told that the OG droid didn't have the hardware to make use of NFC

    Throw me a bone regarding these 3 tasty little additions, as I can barely wait to make use of these new items of awesome.
    Thanks for any answers, if NFC is a go, I may just hurt myself with exuberant leaps into air resulting in concussion due to head being introduced to ceiling.

    I guess I need to change my working definition of virtual, since it is, in fact, a keyboard.
    Always thought it was referred to as on-screen, my bad.
    Thanks circs.
    Any way, seeing as you are connected with team liquid, you can assist on the other two items I was wondering about? NFC and ext4 file system, though I think maybe ext4 is something done seamlessly by the ROM itself.
    Thanks

    well im not a programer so im not sure but i did a quick google and ext4 is a file journling system.

    NFC is something the droid 1 doesnt have. Near Field Communication. think of the credit cards with the chips in them that you dont have to swipe.

    OK so I was right on ext4 basically, and I had heard Droid couldn't get its NFC up.
    I have found the one reason I may actually use the 2 year upgrade, as rooting makes the OG as down and dirty in my estimation as the rest released.
    But when these new ones come out I'm sure I'll cave as the specs are ridiculous.

    Same here. Right now I'm trying to figure out what MIUI means....something user interface I assume.

    Also can't figure out the lockscreen music controls which is most important to me in a ROM. I press the camera button and the screen comes on instead of the music pausing. Obviously something ain't right

    circs is right, the D1 doesn't have NFC. But it's still a supported feature, so I listed it

    and yes EXT4 is the file system. Think of FAT32 vs NTFS on windows machines, the new EXT4 system in gingerbread is much better, and is a standard of any linux system.

    MIUI is a custom rom by a chinese dev, that in my opinion doesn't really look or feel that great (makes android look like an iphone, bleh). But it custom themes a bunch of stuff like the dialer that some people like.
