    Default Gummycharge issue

    I installed my first rom ever today. Its gummycharge. My firmware was 2.3.6 after rom it was 2.2.1. How did it downgrade? I know the new update helps battery but is it worth losing. How did this happen

    Could be they found out, that the lower firmware helps with battery life? That would be my guess.

    That is very true. I thought I had to do software on my own

    You might want to check out either Tweaked 2.0 or Eclipse ROMS. I'm not sure how much support there is for Gummy these days. That could also be why you are back on 2.2.1...take a look at the date of the latest version of that ROM, wherever you got it from.

    Congrats on flashing a custom ROM! You will never look back again.

    Battery life, as I have come to understand it, is more about the kernel, and not the ROM itself. So if you try Eclipse with the stock kernel, you should see decent battery life...better than running pure stock Gingerbread, because the custom ROM has a smaller, lighter footprint than stock, but not a ton better.

    If you try a custom kernel, your results with battery life will vary depending on how you customize stuff (voltage setting, cpu settings, etc.). I've tried custom kernels, and personally I never really get much out of them for the way I use my phone. Good luck!

    I am loving now the bionic acts on the new software. Feels much quicker and cleaner.

    Tell me about it. It really makes it hard to ever go back to a stock rom

    Flash the latest version of eclipse or tweaked 2.0 (my favorite Charge ROM). They are both based on the FP1 update. And both are great ROMS.

    I flashed to the Eclipse ROM and ended up getting the "software update" nags.... went back to Gummy Charged - it runs okay, but I do see some occasional flakey-ness.

    ROM
    GummyCharged 2.1

    Nicki,

    You do not see the updates in GummyCharge because the Devs blocked it. You can do this yourself by changing a little text in the code.

    GummyCharge devs moved on to the Nexus. Eclipse and Tweatstock are the two that have been updated to the latest OTA by Verizon called FP1. To clear any issues up you would need to restore to stock, take the FP1 if not already there, then go on to the ROM of choice. Or you can change the text and ignore the updates.

    I run GummyCharge from time to time still. I like it, but there are unsupported issues. Eclipse has been running fine for me, but only when coming from a clean install. Let me know if you or anyone needs any help bouncing around between ROMs.
