    Default Goo manager beta?

    Is this safe to use on our phones and if so what does it do?

    TheKraven Had it preinstalled in his latest builds of CM7, so I would say that it is safe because it's not like a real rom manager. It is just an app that allows you to search and download roms compatible with your device form the GOO.IM website where DEVs upload their roms it is not necessarily a rom manager because it doesn't require a special recovery or actually do the flashing for you but it does allow you to download roms easily to your phone so you can flash them

    Well the only way you can get real use out of it is if the devs posted all their roms, themes, patches, and mods on there but besides that I think it would be a cool thing to have so you dont have to get on the computer to flash your stuff or try to do it over your phone's web browser...

    It is especially safe to use now that Drew's Cannibal Recovery supports it :-) I get Google apps updates through it.

    I believe the "Flash ROM" and "Reboot Recovery" buttons work after Drew added openRecovery support to Cannibal, but don't try anything until he either confirms or denies what I'm saying. (Might Brick)

    It just downloads the updates and you can choose to install them later. When you hit Flash Rom with Cannibal installed make sure to tell it you already have a compatible recovery though.

    Beseband should not matter. Recovery has to support open source scripting though.

    Right here in the forums. Like they said though recoveries don't rely on a certain baseband.

    OK, is there a link for it in the cannibal recovery thread( if there is I must have missed it)? When I do a search for it only this and the cannibal recovery thread are the only ones that come up that have anything to do with it. All the others threads are for different roms & ect.
    If I do a search for it in the market, its says only compatible with 2.3.3

    Wait, I missed something, are you wanting to install GooManager? If so, that should be it. It should support Froyo and up a I'm running it on ICS. If that's not what you meant then I'm sorry

    At first I thought you were asking about the recovery..

    edit - oops just saw you compatibility message. I've downloaded direct from the Play Store on six ROMS, Froyo to ICS.

    There is a direct link from Goo.Im site.

    I've passed on the info on ORS to @tdm for quattrimus as well, but he has his own RomKeeper that is nice. He has beta1pre1 (OS and OV) on goo,im too, but the nightly delta only works via RomKeeper. I'm hoping he will incorporate oss support to use drew's Cannibal thnuderc recovery.

    RomKeeper doesn't need anything special to be compatible, according to tdm. It uses the standard /cache/recovery/command file AFAIK.

    I downloaded 2.1.1 from the site using wget and installed with a file manager. Looks pretty nice, but only has Optimus V ROMs listed in the compatible ROMs list. Guessing that we just need to wait for our devs to mod build.props and upload ROMs...
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    HydroROM is available if you choose Browse all files->devs->TeamHydro. The build.prop is correct though I'm unsure as to why it's not on the list of "compatible" ROMs.
