    OK - as you all know, there is no voice prompting in my 5.1 ROM (and not in 5.2 either). This is an issue with 2.3.3 and it is not yet fixed.

    Soooo - I have added a fair bit of new stuff besides the obvious 2.3.3 upgrade - is it worth the extra effort for me to build a new 2.3.2 ROM in addition to the 2.3.3 upcoming release (5.2)?

    As far as I can tell - it is the only broken feature. I personally do not care about the BT voice prompt - however - if there is enough interest - I will consider releasing two ROMs, one @ 2.3.2 and one @ 2.3.3.

    I would hate for people to leave SS and go to another 2.3.2 ROM simply because of this ... one of the new features I have added (which is why some of you use PE, as well as BT voice prompting) is the ability to lock custom apps into memory - so you can have it both, if I build another 2.3.2 ROM.

    I would not leave for that issue alone. Today I played with the thumderbird, I did like the larger screen, and it is temping but my D1 with SS is so smooth and quick I will be keeping my D1. I like having complete control how my Droid looks and performs.

    Thanks again Chevy!!

    I would say it's not worth the hassle.

    A "nice to have" but not critical IMHO.

    I don't personally care at all about the BT Voice Prompting.

    BUT...my 2 cents:

    I have had varying success with redraws in your Gingerbread ROMs. Currently with 5.1 redraws are terrible. Everything else is running extremely well. I use ADW EX and for some reason it does not get along with 5.1.

    If your additions to 5.2 don't allow me to solve my redraw problems I am probably going back to 4.96. If that is necessary and you would be willing to support two ROMs, I would rather see you keep supporting both Froyo and Gingerbread rather than two different Gingerbread versions.

    I agree with Rich. The redraw issues would be much more of deal killer for me. I rarely, if ever, use the BT voice prompting.

    I'll be honest, I do use the BT calling prompt function in my car.

    What would we be losing if we went to the 2.3.2 ROM?

    Blue Tooth Voice promting? People actually use the Droid/ BT for phone calls? Who knew!

    (jk, jk - settle down people).


    Bottom line, not a problem for me to live without it.

    I do use bt for calls but don't need voice prompt I'm used to not having it when I make voice calls over the headphone Jack in my girls car.

    Plus I also use adw ex deleted adw and launcher 2 and I use terminal to lock home in memory for 5.01 and 5.00 with 5.1 I have not had to use terminal because the new setting in Chevy tools works fine for me no redraws.

    I do use the BT voice calling. Much less intrusive when driving... push button and say whom you wish to call. Much safer. I was very happy to get it back after going without it for a while after originally getting Droid 1. I suspect it will get put back in code shortly. I'll just continue on!

    I'm on the Droid 2 and all work s fine using the monster gingerbread rom. Except for the fact that there are no voice commands through Bluetooth OR any ability to communicate through a Bluetooth headset at all. I can listen to music, but anything involving voice is a bust.


    I would definitely be up for this if it's possible.

    I personally would use BT voice prompt if it works. I have a nifty hands free set in my car that I would love to just press the button on it to make the call. I can dial from my phone but who wants to do that if I can talk?

    But something I REALLY REALLY would be changed is removing audiogalaxy from the hosts file. Chevy I am pretty sure I mentioned this in another random post or maybe it was a PM to you directly but it is still a problem. audiogalaxy.com is not a spam or advertisement that needs to be blocked. I use audigalaxy more then any other app. It is pain to edit the hosts file or turn on all ads each time I reload the ROM. This isn't just in your rom other ones like bugless beast, liquid, and project elite has the same problem. I will donate $5 if you can permanently remove it from the hosts file for all your future releases. Seriously $5 for you just PM me when its done ^_^

    You guys may have noticed this thread was started two months ago... but anyway, my two cents: I do use voice prompting/dialing all the time, and wouldn't want to use any new ROM that doesn't have it. I'm happy enough with the current SS having the option to toggle it on at the cost of losing DSP manager. PowerAMP has great built-in EQ options so I'm fine with that.
