    Eb01 has removed several things from the dl30 leak with what we all love.

    -Samsung keyboard
    -free of bloatware
    -Google.... yes, eb01 has bing
    -what Verizon would bring out.....
    -bigger list to come, just the basics ones I've reviewed for now


    Highly recc. the dl30 to all you fascinate owners. Really easy to do as well....


    If you got more for my list please post.

    There is a new cw that needs to be ran with, but to access the install of the kernal you need to flash a sub kernal. If you find the dl30 tutorial, it will show what to download.

    this is the DL30 leak and 2.6.32.9 kernel all in one that you would flash in new CWMR...there are no other kernels available for DL30 builds as far as i know...
    EB01 was released yesterday and DL30 is the buggy version of this...i suggest EB01 and there are Voodoo and nonVoodoo 2.6.32.9 kernels available....in the dev section there are ODIN packages for EB01 and a manual walkthrough if you want to do it that way

    hope this helps a little

    Is the GPS any better on EB01 than DL09? DL09 gets stuck searching for gps like it used to.

    I know you posted it. I keep up with all the posts but I am not too sure what is involved from where I am now. It was easy to follow directions when I had a stock phone. Now it's no longer stock and I am not sure if I follow directions like I did before or will I need to skip some of it because I am already rooted. I really don't look forward to losing all my data either. If it's easy to get everything back then that is fine but I haven't done it yet so I don't know how easy it will be. What seems easy to one person another person could struggle at it.

    Froyo 2.2 thanks to the devs

    Thank you for all your help jamis0n. I went with the super clean 2.4. I lost all my apps that I didn't pay for but that's okay because it was my fault. I downloaded appbrain but I never registered with them. I love EB01 without all the bloat. My phone its so responsive now. My benchmark scores are double what I was getting with DL30. The whole layout including my app drawer is nothing short of beautiful. I have no reason to download launcherpro. I do however need to download ringtones seeing how there is only one to chose from.

    This is a pretty global statement, and I don't fully agree with it. Let me explain...

    I would consider myself to be a light - moderate user of my phone. I do around 160 texts a month, play some games, read some ebooks, make a few phone calls per week, use google nav a couple times per week, and use the calendar and battery widgets, but that's about it. Because I live on the fringe of reception, I put my phone in airplane mode at night, instead of turning it off so the alarm will work in the morning (and yes, I do love the bloat-clock a lot!). I also use RunKeeperPro to keep track of my running with its gps route and auto-uploading to their website.

    I rooted and installed the SC2.1 rom, then the Deodexed (sp?) rom, the SC2.4 rom and finally the stock EB01 bloated rom. Not one of them gave me the same level of confidence I had with 2.1 Eclair.
    My main concerns were battery life and sleep state (for lack of a better term). With 2.1 Eclair, my phone will drop 1% overnight (with airplane mode on), but with every 2.2 Froyo rom I tried, the battery would drop from 12% - 20% overnight (also with airplane mode on). From what I could gather using SpareParts, the display was on all the time (even with the screen off), and the phone never slept.
    My other huge issue was that the phone acted like it rebooted when I was running. Not a huge issue unless you are trying to keep track of your total distance, time and pace at the time (which I was).
    A smaller issue, but still important to me was the loss of the bloat-clock that gave me a countdown timer and gently increasing volume alarm. The countdown timer I found a suitable replacement for (setting the time was more annoying, but only slightly), but due to the loss of the hidden menus (which allowed changes in the volume steps), I was not able to find a replacement alarm clock that would start out at 0% volume and slowly increase the volume like the bloat-clock did (but I found a lot of them that would go from silent to step 1 which was way too loud for me). The only one I found that could do this fought with the stock alarm clock and that didn't help my battery life at all.

    Having said all that (and I appreciate your patience with my wordiness), I went back to 2.1 Eclair and enjoy a wonderful phone that does everything I need it to do, and it does it all beautifully. Do I miss the themes? YES! Do I miss the accurate battery in the status bar? YES! But I can't accept the poor battery life I had, and the glitchy sleep/not sleep/reboot whateverness I had with 2.2 Froyo (even the stock rom).

    It seems to me that a moderate - heavy phone user that plugs their phone in overnight would not see a difference in battery life at all, and for them Froyo would be a very nice improvement, the phone is much faster, nav volume is louder, and the black status bar is beautiful. I'm just not that user, and I really hope that when the OTA update comes out, I don't have problems again.

    Good Luck, and have fun with your phones!

    I have a quick question about custom roms. I have an unrooted phone, and i have purchased several "aftermarket" batteries, and as we all know they don't work properly or charge at all in the phone. My question is, being rooted with a custom ROM, does the custom ROM programing discard all the non compatable battery issues, and another issue has popped up since the last update, it won't allow you to take pictures when your battery is in the low orange state which is a ways away from the flashing red state. I got "bit" on this the other day and missed a picture i needed due to low battery. Just curious about the custom ROM's in this regard. Hope this isn't too far off topic.

    I have this same issue as I have a 3500mah battery I cant use on my current setup....you can use these aftermarket batteries on Eclair 2.1 by running a VooDoo kernel that supports these 'aftermarket' batteries....SirGatez originated the hack for the Fascinate in his VooDoo kernels for DJ05/DL09 2.1 roms....i can confirm they work as I had used them for months when I was running 2.1...
    Sadly, the 2.2 source codes have not been released and who knows when they will be....until then i cant use this aftermarket battery with Froyo...sorry

    I have the 3500 I carry for a spare but it never has charged or worked correctly in the phone. The battery that came with the phone lacks about an hour a day in making it. I have used many of tips provided on here to get this far I used to only make it about 12 hours. I think my battery life is pretty good but I will post my average usage and see if the replays show me above or below average. Phone calls about 90 mind per day. Send about 20 texts a day and receive about 40. Get about 20 emails a day and respond to about half. Use Facebook about 20 minutes per day and make about 5 posts. Use android news and other forums about hour and a half. Standby rest of the time. I would be very happy to make it a full day. The 3500 wont make a whole day either because the power saving features are not compatible. For example if I hit the button and put it in standby, screen goes off and all is well but if I receive a text it all turns on and stays on till I check it again.

    yea the Fascinate eats battery, thats for sure but with the 3500mah on 2.1 and overclocked VooDoo kernel @ 1.3ghz I had really awesome battery life....i did not experience any of the issues you speak of with the screen coming on and staying on etc....it charged fine and seemed to work fine for me so im just waiting for the source codes for Froyo to be released so I can use the da** thing again lol

    Sorry, I'm often too verbose for my own good.
