    Vid: GummyCharged 2.1


    I struggle sometimes reading through 40, 50 and even 60 posts through multiple websites to build my understanding of Android. I really appreciate the friendly atmosphere of the Androiders. In order to help cut down on questions and speed up the learning curve of those like me who need a visual aid, here is a video for you.

    This video shows how to install the new GummyCharged Gingerbread 2.1 ROM. It is a super fast ROM for root users. Read all the show notes, watch the video, go to Rootzwiki and read the forums. Then after that try this out once you are confident. Do not miss any steps as a little one may cause your phone to get stuck. This video is for users who are already on GummyCharge Froyo 2.0.

    I am not affiliated with TeamGummy. I am just a user trying to help out others. It is my understanding that TeamGummy wants all their stuff managed over on Rootzwiki, so you must follow the links to there for all the downloads and forum questions.

    If this video helped and you care to show support then please hit the thank button and subscribe to my channel

    Thanks for looking and I hope this helps.

    I also want to put out a special thanks to IMNUTS (which CWM we are using in this release) for all his help

    Donate to these guys! Help them to keep the ROMs coming!

    While it is not needed, it is recommended that you install EP1W radios

    Settings - About phone - Baseband version - look at the last three characters. There are 2 sets - as there are 2 modem/radios (CDMA, LTE).

    Please Wipe Data regardless of what ROM you come from

    Do not use themes from previous GBE releases you will get a bootloop

    Install - CWM only:
    Make sure you have root and Clockwork recovery installed
    -boot into recovery via Recovery
    -select "wipe data/factory reset"
    -select advanced and "wipe Dalvik Cache"
    -select "Yes - delete all data" for each one
    -go back
    -select "install zip from sdcard"
    -select "choose zip from sdcard"
    -find and select GummyCharged GBE 2.0
    -let phone do its thing and then reboot
    -if like me - pull battery once screen is dead
    -put battery back and go into recovery
    -find and select GummyCharge GBE 2.1
    -let phone do its thing and then reboot
    -if like me - pull battery once screen is dead
    -put battery back and go into recovery
    -select advanced and "wipe Dalvik Cache" (must do!)
    -select "wipe data/factory reset" (skip this step unless the Dalvik wipe alone didn't fix the black screen issue)
    -select "Yes - delete
    -select "Yes - delete all data" for each one
    -reboot and give the phone time as it will need to setup without interruption
    -sign into google and begin to restore apps
    -go into setting and tools to turn on preferred items like the battery %

    We can figure this out... Help me with the details. Where were you coming from? What ROM, antennas etc...?
    And what are your antennas now? I am guessing this might be the issue without knowing more. Just for the sake of argument would you do a full power down and let it sit. Then power up in an area where you get a signal. Just a simple check...

    I was running gummycharged 2.0. With EE4 radios. Flashed to EP1 then installed GummychargedGBE2.0 then the 2.1 hotfix. Phone says it's running EP1 but I get a little sim card in the corner with an x on it.

    There is a sim card hot fix out there for the charge. I will have to jump over to the devs for this one. I suspect you may not be the only one that runs into this coming from the setup you had.

    An alternative at the moment would be to go backwards and flash Gummy Froyo 2.0 and see if that fixes up the radio issue. Form there move forward again to Gummy Ginger 2.0 to 2.1. I will work on getting a better option in the mean time.

    Sorry forgot the simple question... When you flashed the radios did you just move forward into the rest of the installs or did you try out the phone first with the new radios?

    Basically do the radios you flashed work? Maybe that was the issue all along.

    You can follow my other vids which will bring you to the same point as me before I went to Gummy GBE 2.1. Following that process means no flashing of kernals, radios or anything as all the .tar files I used and show contain the needed pieces.

    Let me know,
    Dave

    1. Odin Root the phone
    2. Odin Gummy 1.9 (no vid as it is the same as rooting, but you must place the battery in before hitting start on odin)
    3. Clockwork Flash Gummy Froyo 2.0
    4. Clockwork Flash Gummy Gingerbread 2.0 and then immediately the 2.1 update patch.

    So perhaps it was because i was using an older version of voodoo. Updated voodoo and everything went smooth as butter.

    Yeah, I flashed the radios twice and nothing changed. I guess it's not really voodoo but CWM that needs to be updated. I was quite a few versions behind.

    Dave,
    I am running into the same issue. I will ask the devs. The update to Google+ broke itself. I had to remove it and load the backup I had from titanium.

    Google Talk also happens to be my main text message format. I hope to get the camera feature working. Seems it should since older phones have had this for some time.

    Dave,

    When you got to the point where 2.1 is flashed and starting up did you get a black screen and nonresponsive buttons?

    Did you then erase Dalvik and wipe data/reset or just dalvik?

    Once I flashed 2.1 it started up right away with no problems. I did a factory reset and wiped dalvik between the 2.0 and 2.1 hot fix. not after.

    I thought mine wasn't working either, until I realized the "Disable Lockscreens" was checked in TSM Parts..

    Just throwing it out there in case you didn't notice it either.



    My GoogleTalk is having the same issues as you guys also, and my service drops every 15 minutes or so. I flashed the EP1 radios a couple days before i installed 2.0 and 2.1 and was not having the issue.

    Thank's for pointing me in that direction. disable lockscreen was not checked, however; I changed it from SGII to puzzle unlock and it started working. Interesting. Gtalk is still acting weird.

    No problem. I'm using Miui that seems to be working.

    Not the perfect fix for Gtalk, but ok for now: I tried switching to 3G only (CDMA Mode) to see if I would keep losing service and it hasn't cut out yet. It also seems to have fixed with Gtalk issue for me. I've been using it constantly for the past 3 hours and havent been logged out once. Im in the heart of a 4G area so I'm not sure why its so funky.

    I had the same problem.

    I only have one other issue with this rom - people have been reporting that the status bar is force closing (supposedly thanks to TSM) which comes back either randomly or via reset. The problem is, the lock screen is disabled completely when the status bar is closed. Meaning when it crashes, your phone will not lock until the status bar loads up again. That and the above are the only real issues I've had so far, but the last one is pretty big IMO.

    It has been 15 days since I started running GummyCharge 2.1 on the Droid Charge. Feel free to follow my link to my full review. But in a nutshell here it is...

    Positive:
    Snappiness is excellent and the best I have seen yet.
    Battery life is 3/4 better than stock.
    General appearance and features are very customizable

    Negative:
    2 battery pulls needed in 15 days (no big deal as I am a very demanding user)
    Requires a fair amount of setup upon first start to include clock, bat percent, etc...
    Gtalk not always showing correct status

    What do you think?

    I did like the snappiness. But, I have gone to the EP1W debated build. Or maybe it was EP1Q...I can't remember. I'm running 2.3.4.

    David,

    Thanks for the reply. I have decided to take a even more active role in all this Android jazz. I plan to test every build I can get my hands on and then review them to include blogs and videos. As an example the Droid Charge has so much potential as proved by these various ROMs. I feel that everyone should get the most out of their phone purchase.

    Couple of questions, I have a DC and I had gummycharge 2.0 before then I updated to 2.1 but I kept getting random reboots, so after searching on the forums I found that it was because of CWM I had the old version (cwm 4.0) so I rooted back to stock and started over but when I downloaded the new CWM 5.0 I was able to root the phone but now when I go back into recovery its not going into CWM.... So my question is should I still use CWM 4.0 or look for a newer version? Also when I do root to gummycharge 2.0 then to 2.1 I have the stock radio is it necessary to flash to get the EP1 radio or is the EP4 radio ok? Thanks for your time.
