    Ruby 1.1.1 is now available at the link below or in ROM Manager! This ROM is super quick, and stable as a rock (so far). I haven't had any lockups or reboots, and so far I can't find any bugs. Many people are reporting bluetooth streaming is still borked though, which I don't use so i can't confirm or deny. Camera shoots at the full 8MP, Camcorder now has 720p. Gps has been fixed, locks on very quickly, Nav works also. LED's work the same as in 1.1.0.

    can you use different kernels with this rom or are we stuck with what it comes with?

    There are no custom kernels as of right now, but they have built plenty of kernels for the Sapphire ROM for the Droid, so I'm sure we'll eventually see some good kernels for Ruby! This ROM is so fast anyway the only benefit a custom kernel would have is some undervolt maybe...

    Can anyone get ROM Manager to work with 1.1.1? It never would install for me on 1.1.

    Thanks!

    Just download the zip file and upload it via recovery but be sure to make a backup of your current ROM!

    Thanks. I know how to install via recovery. I was just wondering if anyone could get ROM Manager to work.

    Used Ruby overnight last night and had no probs. Unfortunately, it locked up hard on me twice this morning while driving to work. I switched back to CM 6.0.2...

    That is because it is not included in system. You need to download google search from the market and then make a symlink to the system version so it works.

    Use ADB shell with root and mount the system dir then run:
    ln -s /data/app/com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox*.apk /system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk

    reboot your phone and the soft key will work

    You are dead wrong on that my friend. With a modified kernel you can use scheduling to lower battery consumption, over clocking for more speed, undervolting for power consumption and heat, HAVS and AVS, and scaling. All add up basically to using the processor more efficiently which ends up in lower battery draw and a faster phone.

    For those of you who haven't read up on King's kernels especially BFS here is a snip:
    Also, a little info on HAVS and AVS:

    The purpose of HAVS is to minimize the power used by the CPU by determining
    and setting the optimal voltage. At the same time, the maximum voltage by
    which HAVS can scale to is fixed to a specified voltage depending on the
    CPU frequency in order to prevent scaling to a higher voltage than what is
    normally used at a specified voltage. The optimal voltage is actively determined
    for each frequency and temperature. HAVS actively adjusts the CPU voltage as the
    CPU frequency and temperature changes.
    Also with tackling custom kernels they can change the way it charges potentially etc. There is SOOO much a kernel can do for your phone. Hopefully we see some of these fine developers that know how to do them start working with the AOSP git's and push them out!

    No as far as the Ruby, Cyanogen, and the other handful of AOSP roms floating around I have yet to test one that doesn't have some sort of glaring issue. Most of the time as of late it deals with either the bluetooth stack or the internal memory. I think most of them have figured out the camera's and gps dealing and all the basic phone requirements. Most of them all seem pretty stable as of right now on my phone, however there have been a handful of phones I have tried them on where they aren't stable and cause lockup's, reboots, or just don't work correctly.

    So I advise anyone, as usual, make a nandroid backup and a titanium backup and play! The first Ruby was very sleak, I was equally impressed with this ROM it just felt like Cyanogen with some of the customizations missing. Hopefully these guys stay active and on top of things then I'm sure in a month's time we will have a pefect rom!

    You are very correct, I was just making a generalization. I used each one of King's kernels when I was running Sense based ROMS, and benefited greatly from all of his modifications. When I made my comment I was only thinking of overclock and failed to consider other modifications a custom kernel might entail.

    lol no issue just wanted to let the new guys who stumble upon this know what else can be done besides overclocking. Man what I wouldn't give for an AOSP kernel that supports all the goodies. Cause right now the battery life on these ROMs hasn't been anything to write home about. Of course they aren't that bad either but could always be better.

    Oh I absolutely agree. I definitely miss my BFS from King's kernels, and luckily my phone was stable at 1.19 so I wouldn't mind being able to crank it up that high every once in a while just for ****s and giggles! Hopefully Koush or the guys over at ccroms can get some nice kernels going soon. Koush's kernel works with Ruby, but its not quite perfect.

    Strange...I figured out what was happening. Somehow, Ruby was not treating ROM Manager as a Market app even though it was downloaded from the Market. Selecting "Unknown Sources" in the Applications settings allowed this to install and run correctly.
