Let's continue the fun!

This project is a continuation of doixanh's personal ROM, known as GingerDX.(Xperia X8)
("Ginger" as in "Gingerbread", and "DX" as in short for "doixanh")

Brought to you by Team GingerDX:
B.Jay, eagleeyetom, Maze_fr and djnilse

As set in stone by doixanh, the main goal is to have a fast, smooth and lightweight CM7 based ROM with some special features.

GingerDX now even has its own IRC channel!

Very important. Read all before posting questions!
1. This ROM is based on doixanh's personal ROM and continued in the same philosophy to keep it as lightweight as possible. You can report bugs in this thread and suggest additions, but understand we're not obligated to fix or include them. We'll fix what is needed, and we'll include what makes sense.
2. We are NOT responsible for any bugs caused by custom-made fixes/additions/tweaks. You use them at your own risk and responsibility!
3. Regarding the copyright branding at the bottom in Lockscreen: We will NOT remove them nor provide any option to disable them. Don't PM/Post to ask for the removal or nag otherwise.
4. If you have battery drain, try the following:
  • Clear battery stats in recovery.
  • Freeze unused services (like Email, DSP Manager, Maps). This is important.
  • Turn OFF 'Allow mock locations'.
  • Don't set brightness too high.
  • Don't install too many unused apps.
  • Turn OFF WiFi, 2G, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth when not in use.
  • Turn OFF LED Succession.
  • Reboot after you listen to music. Music service caused battery drain (in the past).
  • Generally, doixanh and me usually get 2-3 days out of a charge (give or take depending on usage).
5. If you still have battery drain after following Step 4, try:
  • Full wipe in recovery, re-install GingerDX.
  • Use Stock ROM for several days to see if the battery problem is caused by GingerDX or not.
  • If it doesn't drain, try installing one of your apps, test battery for a day, install another one, and test.
  • and so on...
That way you will know what's the cause of your battery drain.

Thanks go to the CyanogenMod Team, doixanh for this great ROM and all the modules, racht, nobodyAtall, zdzihu, jerpelea and lots of others...
Thanks also go out to Google for their great little Android.
And don't let us forget to throw Sony Ericsson a thanks for their nice X8 hardware but craptastic software support.
Special thanks to B_jay and eagleeyetom and djnilis and all GDX team members for letting me port this
