    However, you can get a stock deodexed and rooted version to use as you wish right HERE.

    Changelog:
    Code:

    -dalvik-cache moved from /data to /cache for around 150+mb internal storage on fresh install
    -removed Sprint ID and SprintZone
    -removed boot up sound

    -extra included apps:

       -ES File Explorer
       -NoFrills CPU (must flash a custom kernel if you wish to OC)
       -Terminal Emulator
    -various other speed and performance tweaks
    -If I think of anything else I will add it here

    Default Re: [ROM] [ZVJ] GingerRom v1.0 4/8/12

    Hotspot aka Wireless Tethering
    So, Sprint managed to get FoxFi removed from the market because guess what........... it works!!
    Even on most non-rooted phones believe it or not (That's definitely what got it the boot)

    Luckily, the talented FoxFi folks have provided us with an external download link from inside their Market description. After you download the app, open it up and turn on the hotspot feature. It's that simple!

    Be aware that by default, it creates an open non-secure network. Simply enter a password in the "Password (WPA2)" field and your good to go.

    Market Link -

    Direct link to Download -


    Extras (flash from recovery)
    - Flash this to move the clock back to the right side of the status bar.

    - Only power button wakes the phone

    - All four front buttons and power button wake the phone.

    You know what...... if someone wants to try flashing this ROM while running baseband ZVH, it might work. Try at your own risk, but in reality all that might happen is you have no cell service/data.

    Please perform a full wipe if trying this.

    Everything should work, the only exceptions might be SMS and MMS. Bet that's a simple fix.

    I read somewhere in one of these threads that someone flashed the stock ZVJ update.zip from a custom recovery while on ZVH and still had cell/data, so it may work (but obviously won't have ZVJ radio).

    Awesome job on the quick de-Sprinted stock ROM. I moved on to a Nexus S 4G, but I'm pretty sure my wife is getting sick of her flip phone and will be using my Optimus S soon, so I've been keeping this phone up-to-date.

    idk if this matters but when i first rooted vj,i flashed hydroRom and everything worked fine,it only changed my baseband back to vh,which i figured was due to the build props being vh branded,other than that it worked great,hope this info helped

    Flashing this right now. Thanks for being quick with the modded stocker! I'm going to stay on stock kernel to see how GPS and other stuff works. Might see if the darkmms flashable works on this. I hate the white mms.

    things i 100% know work since i've flashed. sms both ways. mms receive(haven't tried to send one). data, wifi, 3.5mm audio(haven't tried a mic), stereo bluetooth(i only listened to pandora).camera and camcorder.

    on top of this it seems fairly snappy and i haven't killed my battery. it's looking like angry birds space want's to tell me to f@c# off still.

    So far so good....

    Is the power controls mod going to be added for this?
    I would say that using the ZVH framework apks or mods might be a problem, since there were CarrierIQ changes in this ROM... ummm..

    So let me get this straight, people on ZVH are flashing this?

    Does this mean that ZVH roms will work with ZVJ radio?

    And can anyone point me where I can see what the advantages of ZVJ over ZVH are for now?

    I'm thinking about testing out ZVH roms on ZVJ radio if it's worth trying. Not sure if that's obviously a bad idea to anyone else, but I'm still new to android :/

    Yes, if your still on the ZVH baseband and flash this rom, it will state you have ZVJ, but that is just the build.prop telling your phone that. You still in fact have ZVH radio (baseband).
