    Thanks for the awesome port!

    Few issues though,
    -bottom launcher bar on home screen seems locked (can't replace items on it)
    -only 2 or 3 ringtones/notification sounds, 2.2 had a ton. is there a way to pull the ones from 2.2 to 2.3 with titanium backup or something? i couldn't find ringtones and notification sounds in it though.

    You could try looking in the 2.2 zip by going to system/media/audio and extract the ones you want and put them in the same directory in the most recent update.

    The rom is huge, so Copy the Audio folder from 2.2 to your SD card.


    To change icons, got to manage app, then drag what you want from the drawer to the bottom.

    The bar is locked, odd. :P

    Thanks for the info on sounds and locked bar, working great

    BTW, is the "settings" button popup thing supposed to be gray on white? Kind of clashes with the theme.

    I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe Backup and only wipe Caches/System. Then flash

    How long did you run it for? I'm not saying that your not already aware of this, but in case you didn't know, ROMs usually take a bit to settle in, while the dalvik cache is populated, and so forth. You usually don't get a clear picture of how the ROM will run on a daily basis until it's had a good few hours of use, sometimes a full day.

    I do admit to that, but I was down to 48% in 4 hours. But then again, I think my battery is faxed up. Over night charging and it went down... This isnt GS in Screenie.

    I ran it all day yesterday, charged twice through the day, then charged overnight. Within the first 2 hrs it was down to about 80 which granted is not that bad. However 2.2 on my phone wont go below 80 for at least an hour more.
    I gave it a shot figuring i was playing a lot yesterday, but by 11 am est i switched back to 2.2 and my batt is now holding strong
    Trust me i definitely want the newest best gingersnap there is and imo 2.2 is where its at right now

    To each his own though

    Well that's pretty definitive. I just hadn't seen anyone mention how long they had run it for, and I haven't run it myself, so I wanted to make sure that you all weren't missing out on something due to insufficient testing. But it looks like you've tested it pretty thoroughly.

    So far: I haven't testes Battery Life yet, but rom is more faster. I switched to Go Launcher to use Prime HD icons, so I haven't tested LG home. I switch the keyboard to stock as well and deleted XT9 folders. SNS is deleted, removed 2-4 widgets and some APK I forgot.


    Next ill test battery life.


    My phone is at its ending age though xD So lets see what happens. And I'm always texting and on Music.



    I removed Wifi Cast! That was the APK.


    I also plan to add 2.3 apps to 2.2, but not cosmetic updates, to much for me.


    For you guys, How bought I make a zip for the weather in 2.0+, and one for tthe really old LG weather?

    I've been using this ROM since the latest update, and just today, I tried to update Facebook, and got the dreaded "Insufficient space on device" error (total BS!). Then my browser was being slow, so I was going to install dolphin, and got the "package file is invalid" error. WTH? Should I be using different gapps? I flashed the one from page 1, but there was no market/play store, so I flashed another GB gapps that I used with another ROM. What do I do? I really like using this ROM and I don't want to switch, but if I can't update or install anything, I'm left with little choice.
