[HERO ROM] Gumbo ROM project Gumbo Kernel BETA now released
I've requested this be closed. Please see http://forum.androidcentral.com/spri...html#post41536 for the current release.
All new release. The ROM has been reworked using MoDaCo's incredible build scripts. This gives great performance while keeping all the features.
Gumbo Kernel BETA release - see post 213
Apps2SD (see post below)
Dropbear SSH server (see post below)
Mount USB quick mount app
Phone Portal (administer your phone over WiFi via browser)
Catharsis Calendar Widget
Latest Version of Maps for 1.5
Samsung's Behold II Cube media app
Rosie has been reworked, runs very fast and uses the new Expresso style interface.
A wipe is suggested before installing, because of the new build scripts. If you choose not to wipe, note that many apps have been placed in the /data/ directory for easy future upgrade. At a minimum all caches must be wiped. Note that prior versions are no longer supported, please update to latest before reporting bugs.
As always, this comes with no guarantee, and I'm not responsible for anything.
Donations - please use the money to buy your father an issue of Popular Mechanics to read on the john instead.
Thanks and credits -
everyone else I may have missed.

Please keep the thread on topic. Any questions about how to root or how to apply a ROM should be addressed in the appropriate thread. Lets try to keep this one about issues/suggestions about the ROM.
ALWAYS FEEL FREE TO SUGGEST FEATURES! Don't depend on me to think of everything...I'm getting old and my mind wanders.
This ROM has DropBear installed by default.
Dropbear SSH server and client
The server runs at first boot. It's set at port 2222. It takes a second boot to generate a root password. The password can be found settings>about phone>Build Number. It will say:
[BETA] Gumbo 0.1a, SSH password:your_password
If you have not rebooted since installing the ROM it will say:
[BETA] Gumbo 0.1a, REBOOT REQUIRED
as no password has been generated.
If you don't understand what an SSH server is, or don't want one running, from the adb shell or a terminal on device:
Unless someone has your phone and has looked at your password, you will not get 'rickrolled' using this. If they have your phone, you have bigger things to worry about anyway.

What if I want to keep SprintTV and SprintNFL? And what is a Sprint MR?

I will place them back in and run them for a bit to be sure everything works. They will be back in the next release. I don't use them so that's why I never bothered, but I'm more than happy to add them in for those that do use them.
Sprint MR is the Sprint Maintenance release. It's the update Sprint put out to address the bugs in the original Hero. This ROM has those fixes incorporated in.

I'll look into it. I think this one will be stuck with the 1.5 or HTC lockscreen though, not sure if i can rebuild just the lockscreen for 1.5.

What about the universal search from 1.6? Does that have to be on a full 1.6 build?

I'm running MoDaCo 1.1 now. To switch to yours, just put the .img on the SD card, boot into recovery, and apply it, correct? Will I need to redo the apps2sd or the partitioning again?
BE SURE TO BACK UP THROUGH RECOVERY!
If you have the latest RA image, back up nandroid + sd

I applied it and got a bunch of force closes when it rebooted. Some Sprint ones, and com.google.gapps something or other. I restored and all is well, but I'm back on MoDaCo 1.1 of course. Any suggestions?
- 12-18-2009, 08:52 PM #17
the Sprint apps... i'm not sure without the actual error. Do you have sprint app widgets or shortcuts on your desktop(s)?
Lastly, it's not uncommon to see force closes the first time you switch a rom. Most of the time they go away after the first boot. Especially apps and widgets in use before the reboot/flash
All I can suggest is try again and if you could jot down any errors. I'd be happy to troubleshoot.

com.google.process.gapps <-- over and over and over
This is after rebooting a couple of times, restoring from the nandroid backup, reflashing the ROM, and rebooting a few more times

Correct. Stock from the store to Modaco 1.1 with the builtin apps2sd and then flashed to Gumbo.

Nce GB, I didn't know you released this.
I'll give it a go.

Modaco 1.3 does the same with the force quits, so does that mean it's me or did you use some of the same parts for Gumbo 0.2?

Hah, check this out:
If you experience force closures the issue is with your dalvik-cache.
You can clear your dalvik cache from the recovery mode. Do not do a factory wipe. Choose the dalvik-cache wipe/clear.
