    How is the battery life using this ROM? I installed DK28 when it came out and it absolutely killed my battery (10+ hours to under 4 hours). Thanks!!
    With EXT4 I have the same battery life, if not better.

    Firstly, are we talking about same benchmark, Quadrant standard? I just ran it again with all apps I could close, and got a 985. I have restarted Epic then run it, same...about 1005 or so.

    On a separate note, how does one get the GPS working again?

    Thanks, Ken.
    You can try this (third option), or use the procedure in this thread to start over, completing Step 0 to fix GPS.

    Would different ROM's make that much of a difference (500 points)?

    Hmmm very interesting... Especially when you have people like noobnl and firon taking notice to this... Makes me wonder if we should be staying on EXT4 ...
    LOL! That's a real soap opera of a read...

    but if you dig through it- looks like Daemon has done his research. Not that concern of noobnl isn't warranted- but once you read and understand the concerns of both sides, I'd write this up a tad more risky as rooting in general...nothing more.

    Yep, it is a real soap opera over there. I do respect what both are trying to say. I guess in the end its just like anything else we do with regards to rooting/custom roms/kernels that you take the responsibility into your own hands that something hardware or software may go wrong.

    It does sound like for the average life of these phones (probably a year or two from original release date for most) they probably will be okay. Only time will tell and I'm sure many will keep an eye on that topic.

    I'm currently in the process of trying the even newer method here:

    [MOD] Ported Clockwork Mod version 3.0.0.5 [READ OP CAREFULLY!][RELEASED!] - xda-developers

    to reach Quantum 2.7 here:

    [ROM] Quantum Rom v2.7.0.DK28 | EXT4 SUPPORT [Updated 1/03/2011] - xda-developers

    Clockwork is currently converting my filesystem to ext4 (automatically), then I will wipe data X2 and cache before loading the ROM. Lord willing, I will report back success soon.

    Thanks! Have a question though.

    I did the new procedure with midnight 2.5 rom. Everything worked great. However, decided to try out latest build of the Cyanogenmod 6.1, did a backup on CW, and odined back to DK28 prerooted with clockwork installed.

    Flashed the Cyanogenmod, and now decided to go back to the midnight rom.

    I can just boot into CW and restore the backup right? And I will still have the EXT4 system right? Or will I need to do all the steps again in original post?

    Thanks!

    I'm sure someone asked already but couldn't find it. Once you install the ext4 &, let's say, midnight rom, what happens to the contacts & pics? I didn't loose them when upgraded to dk28, but what now?

    Well all the stuff in your sd card is safe. Sorry not sure if you meant that or not. I basically was okay to start new again. I just backed up launcherpro, my text with sms backup+ and synced apps with appbrain. Contacts are loaded onto gmail account.

    How do you test that ext4 is working properly?

    Bottom of first post:

    5b) Reboot and enjoy EXT4.

    Optional: you can confirm you have successfully converted to EXT4 by using the command

    Code:
    adb shell mount
    or
    Code:
    adb shell df

    You won't see anything, per se. You might notice things run a little faster.

    Not dumb at all. When you entered that command, what did the command prompt return?

    Lol thanks, I was skeptical because I forgot to flash a stock dk28 modem. I originally flashed a modified pre-rooted one a month ago (or whenever dk28 first came out)

    If you used Odin to install Froyo, it installs the modem as well.

    Sorry I meant when I used odin to flash dk28 (both files), it was a rooted version. I did not reflash a stock unmodified version as you said to do in the instructions for ext4, I overlooked it.

    If that worked for you that's fine. The developer of the EXT4 conversion originally advised against coming from a non-stock version of Froyo, but others have reported that coming from non-stock Froyo worked fine for them.

    You need Quantum v2.7 if you're using Clockwork v3.0.0.5.
