    Alright, I've tried posting comments with no response anywhere, so here's a thread. is there anyone trying to port/make roms for the d2g? verizon seems to be pushing it more than the other versions and now there is an sbf, so i dont see why there wouldnt be more development. maybe its that the sbf came out recently, so there isnt anything ready, but it doesnt even seem like anyone is trying, except for fission. whats the deal? does no one have one to test on, or does no one want to port anything in the first place?

    It's probably that no one has one to test on. Aside from fission of course.

    that really sucks, because fission is pretty good, but stuff like liberty is awesome.

    What problems did you have with Fission 2.4.3? just curious because I flashed my D2G about a week ago with it, and I love it so far.. I haven't found anything that doesn't work or bugs. Just wondering if there's something I haven't discovered yet?

    Thanks

    No problems because I have not done it. Various users report bluetooth does not work, music controls do not work, several users report Droid Overclock does not work and there seem to be various ringtone issues - sound and or ringtone just changes to something else.

    Ah, ok. I don't use bluetooth and I either listen to xm or pandora, so haven't really messed with audio controls.. haven't overclocked and not really interested in that atm.. I guess I did just miss all of the the bugs lol.

    Well, I am not sure I would call them bugs - the thing is - I do not know what to call them. They happen to some people but not others. And they are not always noobs just messing things up. People who owned other Droids and have flashed roms in the past are having issues.... they go back to SBF and everything is fine. Back to fission and the same problems. Go figure. I am also concerned that Fission is at 2.5.7 except global, where it is still at 2.4.3. As it is, I found a bloatware removal script that I think will take care of most of my issues. With Wifi & GPS off most of the time I am doing better with battery. I wish it would last a little longer, but I am settled on getting the extended battery. I might turn off the underclocking just to see how it affects battery. I am told it was WiFi that was killing it.

    I will post after a while to tell ya'll how running stock battery controls affects things.

    I do know what you mean about things affecting certain users and not others. I guess my case is just a combination of being lucky and just not using some of the services that have been known to be buggy on fission 2.4.3. I too am awaiting the D2G fission version to catch up with the others at 2.5.7
    I think I have noticed an improvement in battery life since flashing to fission, but it's only a small improvement. If not plugged in, then I try to have the screen at it's lowest setting, and I have everything turned off other than 3g and that seems to help some.

    Hi everybody, well I installed the Liberty 1.0 on my D2G, I know beatifull but bad idea! Now I cant make any call because air plane mode is on always, I am waiting for the D2G Fission 2.5.7 to be ready to migrate.

    Meanwhile the fission 2.4.3 is a gud idea? Can i make calls with it? And its is working ok?

    Hey, I can only speak for myself, but my D2G is great with fission 2.4.3. I haven't noticed any problems. I can make calls just fine to answer your specific question. Good luck

    Unfortunately I have most of the "bugs" that draexo mentioned. My Ringtones and notification sounds constantly change to random videos I have on my sd card, games like angry birds (and a few others) wouldnt install as soon as I used the fission rom, and several other problems.

    I used his ROM on my old D2 and I had similar issues that just never got resolved, so I went back to stock. Now since it's the only ROM on D2G, I got anxious waiting for new roms and bit the bullet. I mean, I figure, it seems like they put out a new version of Fission so often they must be fixing stuff, but unfortunately I was wrong. I'm just to lazy to flash back to stock atm.

    The ONLY Rom you can use on the D2G is Fission. The rest WILL NOT work.
    I am avoiding 2.4.3 Fission for now.

    Essentially there is no workable ROM for the D2G. Fortunately, I can get rid of the bloatware enough to keep me happy. I turned off Wifi (I do not really need it most of the time). Getting extended battery today. I am happy as I can be with no ROM. Actually I am pretty happy with the phone overall. Dang Motorola's eFuse technology!

    Ive been running Fission 2.4.3 on my D2G with no problems, had some minor issues at first. but then I flashed to SBF, and then loaded Fission and everything has been working great.

    I've been running fission without complaints for well over a week now and I just installed on my wife's d2g yesterday. So far she hasn't came to me wondering why such and such doesn't work anymore, so I think it's safe to say she is running it without problems as well. I guess it's just hit or miss. I'm just glad it went well with hers or else i'd be in trouble :icon_eek:

    I thought my alarms suddenly quit working yesterday and today and I thought, well finally i'm noticing some bugs... then I realized that I was setting my work alarm which only repeats m-f lol.

    You are lucky. Unfortunately what we do not know is the success rate of Fission installs on D2G's. Is it 95%? Is 98%? Is it 80%? I guess I could always install Fission and go back to stock afterward.... but I need to clear out a block of time to do that.

    Next phone will be an HTC. I hear they LIKE alternative software!!

    I have also been running Fission 2.4.3 since the SBF became available, and I have not noticed a single bug. Everything works great, and I'm really happy with it! BTW, someone in the D2G forum seems to be working on porting Liberty ROM over to the D2G.
