    .........an easy to read and super helpful wiki guide with excellent instructions from SDX-Developers........Vampirefo's recovery (+ kernel) for transform owners really changes the device's performance and game...... (also, you may want to try Jeoseph Mother's 1.2 crappy_transform kernel, elsewhere at SDX........am running it w/ Vampirefo's recovery)......... just awesome root combination on the transform.)

    Alright thanks. As this forum is pretty much empty, do you know where I can get a good rom for the transform?

    SDX-Developers appear to remain active in exploring new roms for the transform (you meant ROM, right?)............they have several that are AOSP (android open source project) that seem to be stable, according to testers on that site and they do post 'hot-to' videos as well.......my personal preference is for roms that are based on the EB28 stock kernel, but that's just a personal choice based on the way that i am using this transform.........other users have other needs and will therefore be more open to other roms.........you're right, things are pretty quiet around here for the transform, which is why i took the liberty to post a direct link to SDX, hopefully the admin feels ok about this............at any rate, go there and check out their forums till you see what you're looking for.......if you find a good rom that is working for you, do check back here and let us know.

    ....looks like the developer (FilthyPanda) is working on a new ROM, due out sometime early November......will be looking to test that one out..........sounds like Transginger is working out for you. Quick question: is this ROM putting your device thru auto reboots + is wireless tether available to you?

    as far as i can tell no random reboots, my phone has always done it and I cant tell if it is doing it more or less now, and just checked the wireless tether and it works also.

    i cant wait to try his hunnibun ROM when it comes out also!

    ok......in an attempt to flash TransGinger....went back to SWUpdater (transform stock dI11 in binary) to build up to eb28, then zip the update to baseline ef09, but the SWUpdater stopped at install ('can not read bin file').......so am going to get a new usb cord in the coming days + try again.........(maybe hunnibun will be ready for testin by then?)


    *update, 11/5: wasn't the microUSB; several re-dl's of both the DI11_tar + SWUpdater went nowhere (these two appear to be incompatible, the SWUpdater: 'Can not read Bin File!').........so instead, flashed Vampirefo's XT4 Recovery, set the cache to xt4, making great improvements on the overall performance of the Transform (super quick, locks GPS satellites w/out much fuss, excellent navigating on the web et cetera............better performance than when the device was new..........will test for a few days, see what happens.*

    a dev (on sdx) advised me to get to stock EF09........said that transginger would be more stable this way...........but then i read a comment by FilthyPanda: 'transginger will work w/ EB28 modem'......so, who knows?

    Looks like hunnibun is in temp hibernation ..........so then: ..........in Vampirefo's EXT Recovery, set partitions to ext4, flashed TransGingerROM.........jolly good, + snappy, will play w/ wi-fi tether a bit (or the 'Hotspot' in the app drawer)........this is a very visual ROM, running fine w/ EB28 modem.............can't wait to theme it.

    I had the same problems going from eb28 to ef09. I ended up using a computer at work to do the rooting.

    It sucks hunnibunn is coming along slowly did you see the ICS theme? it looks cool

    ..............you would know: Gingerblurr looks like it dovetails right into TransGinger (think Panda plans to include it w/ next update), so am going to explore that soon........let me know if you do flash ICS, (i think it would go gr8 w/ CM6ROM --in development)..........since flashing TG, am getting super smooth + stable results (after calibrating battery, gettiing 37 + hrs thnx to Puma v6!)
    ..........missing Vampirefo ext4 settings w/ CrappyKernel_1.2 combination = super snappy fast + decent battery life.............but can't beat the overall improvements TransGinger has brought to my device.

    37+ hour of battery! i am not getting that at all. i've tried every battery calibration i have found and my battery is still jacked up. it runs down sooo fast, when i plug it in and reboot, the battery jumps up to almost full. it has gone a couple of times from 15% to 70% before. when my phone is off it stays high, when it is on you can literally watch the gauge drop like a gas gauge in a v-12 pickup.

    im waiting for that ics theme to get to v2.0, looks badazz though

    i'm running basically the same set-up as you ext 4/4/4 transginger/gingerblurr

    thank god for filthypanda over there! i hope he gets cm6 working!

    My wife has owned a Transform for about a year now and has had nothing but trouble with it. Very frequently it slows down to a crawl. Sometimes pulling the battery will temporarily fix the problem but it always comes back. We've completely wiped the phone numerous times and even sent it back to Samsung once. I've had great luck running a custom ROM on my LG Optimus S, so I'm thinking about trying out a custom ROM on her Transform.

    Reading this thread, there seem to be a few available. Can you tell me which seems the most stable? I don't want to put something on her phone that will give her a lot of problems. Have the rest of you experienced these kinds of problems with your Transform? Did the custom ROM help?

    Thanks!

    .....root w/ recovery, + the set-up recommended by Bullfrog527, it'll be like a completely different device............some of the undervolted/overclocked kernels are awesome (there are several at sdx, such as Puma6 which is included in TransGinger)......her device's battery will appreciate it!

    just to clarify, 37-41 hrs battery life, *before* flashing Gingerblurr theme (no regrets tho, my device is running the best it ever has, will see how the battery responds after a few days on this Gingerbread combination)..........have been on wifiTether for several hrs tonight, so can see that bat icon steadily moving southward (v-12 pickup gas gauge is right).......saw a link on grimm's signature to 'wifi tether_3.1_beta2' an app that appears to be much faster than open garden (what i am currently using) .....................also, Panda intends to include wifiTether on TransGinger v2.0 which will have been worth the wait (+ YES thank g for FP! he's awesome).

    *update = calibrated battery, ran it down to empty, full charge: battery is showing 80% 1 day later (phone, web, wifi tether)......same / close to before flashing Gingerblurr theme*

    so you calibrate the battery when it is dead? I have been trying to kill my phone, charge it fully, then kill it again before charging for the last few days and my battery life has improved slightly. I just killed my phone in about 2.5 hrs (zynga poker on 3g), my phone when from full 100% to 15%. now I will charge it overnight and go again tomorrow. My battery has been horrendous since I've had this phone, it seems like whatever I do my battery drains like crazy.

    I haven't used the wifi tether much, I just know it works.

    from qbking77, while the device is on you run a full charge until it reads 'fully charged'......turn off device, run the charger again until it reads 'fully charged'.......boot into recovery>advanced>callibrate battery, back soft key to boot to system.........you run your battery down to empty (zynga poker on 3g) completely.....then you run a complete charge (do not disconnect or make calls while charging, perhaps at night).........then you run your device as you would normally w/out turning off the device til the battery is empty, you charge-up again et cetera........right about now your battery is fully calibrated.............. if you continue to drain within 3 hrs after all this, you may need a new battery (i got lucky last summer the phone store tech just gave me one from the tech bench!).......but it could be a number of things running it down, some conflicts with programs running in the background........which is why i appreciate TransGinger so much (no CIQ's!)

    thanks bro, I guess i haven't done the full calibration cycle like you just said.

    I was wondering about that no_CIQ thing, i didnt understand that thread so i was not touching it. I think my phone still has IQ agent service running. isnt this the same thing?

    ....CIQ (carrier IQ) runs thru your device, sending packets of data back to the carrier + there are several schools of thought about this.......namely the privacy of the device's owner (+ lesser things, like the battery drain if this is happening nilly-willy on an erratic basis)......so some folks will disable this for a variety of reasons.........................i think the devs like to use the space that this occupies in the device's system for other use, if possible.
    Don't forget to CLICK THANK YOU IF SOMEONE WAS HELPFUL IN ENHANCING YOUR DEVICE!
