    Start looking. Its faster, cooler, snappier, has more functions, better radio. Just take my word for it and flash it. I wouldn't lie to ya.

    flashed it today; worked like a charm..
    The new enhanced copy paste sold me, along with that tubular lock animation

    looks super good with the gingercomb juiced theme too

    battery life is also swell.. and this isnt even the final release; im impressed... dancedroid

    Hello, I am looking for a little guidance.

    Did anyone tweak their Systl Config?? I put mine to
    Min Free KBytes <2096>
    Dirty Ratio <90>
    Dirty Background ratio <55>
    VFS Cache Pressure <5>
    I am using a Droid2 on Liberty GB V.08 does anyone have any better Ideas? I will say my phone is running flawless like this but I think it could be a little faster? :)

    Go to Imoseyon.com and dl his tweak. It includes a systcl tweak among other things. Its great. Just flash in clockwork (no wipe needed). It will over ride the systcl settings in the toolbox though.
    If you want to just tweak the systcl, this is (from my studies the most optimal setting)
    4096
    90
    70
    1
    Oom task on
    The last num is the vm cache pressure. The lower the better for performance, but the more often you'll need a reboot to clear it.
    The Imoseyon.com tweak does all this for you (once a day at 3am.)
    Hope this helps. If you haven't yet done so, it's good to read up on systcl. Interesting stuff!

    Well... I finally did it. My D2 is now running a fresh install of the Monster Gingerbread leak. First impression: Holy sweet monkeyballs, why didn't I do this sooner?

    I was nervous I'd screw something up. I'm a very confident user of all things tech, but still... what if I fubar? Then the whole process would take even longer. Well, this morning, after downloading what looked to be just another round of app updates, my Droid went belly-up. Many, many battery pulls, slews of profanity and reboots later, I had no choice but to install a Nandroid backup from.......about this time last month. Bah. Fine. Camel's back = broken.


    It's like unboxing my D2 all over again! I haven't been this excited about my phone in months. Cheers!

    OTA gb on the dx seems to be a nightmare for dx users. I haven't had one issue with the d2 gb leak. Just sayin...

    If I recall, it was a soak test. I'm really not certain beyond that. I just remember some people had the update pushed to them.

    2 more D2G's who can't get the OTA for 2.3

    Me and a guy I work with also noticed that we didn't get the 2.3 OTA, but another one of us with a D2G did get it. However, I am rooted with z4root, running stock ROM, and have simply renamed all the bloat-apk's to prevent them from loading. Would that prevent my phone from detecting the OTA update? Possible that it was just a soak test, as you say.

    The 2.3 OTA update to the OG Droid 2 hasn't come out yet. I don't believe the D2 is getting soak tests yet either. The D2G gets different updates than the OG droid 2, and will more than likely get them first. It will not prevent your phone from detecting or downloading the update, but it will prevent you from installing it.

    Just by not having the bloat should kick the update out. Though on another note, tell that coworker to get a system dump of D2G gingerbread out, and FAST!
