Okay, so here's a semi-official thread (or whatever) for everyone and their mother's phone. Post pictures, models/specs, wallpapers, what tweaks you're running, apps, that sort of thing. I'll even kick it off.

Right now I have a Samsung Galaxy S 4G. I'm running the Bionix Black Ice ROM, coupled with the Bali UV kernel, and the KF2 (Gingerbread) modem. It's also overclocked to 1.4GHz (stock is 1GHz), and I have ADW Launcher instead of the stock one.

It looks a lot better "life-size" on the phone screen. Because yeah, as-is it looks annoying to me too.

How the hell do you get an 'official' port of something that isn't official in the first place? Big Grin

CM7 is built from AOSP, probably the most official version of Android there is Smile Blame carriers and manufacturers for making the versions they ship with their handsets "unofficial" by adding garbage like SenseUI and non-removable apps.

Time for an official update of sorts from me.

Still have my loyal GS4G, but I decided to upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread. Specifically, I've installed Octane by Team ACID (though I'm on 1.0, not 2.0). I tried out the ICS Launcher, but then went back to ADW since the app bar has more customization to it. I also added the Adrenaline Shot by DSexton for another speed boost. I'm still running at an overclocked 1.4GHz as well.

About the only thing I have left to do is install a few more apps I'll probably never use anyway :p and maybe some icon packs.

Once you go Gingerbread you can't go back. Even dealing with bone stock builds Gingerbread has better battery life, is more responsive, and provides a slicker end user experience.

I still have stock in case I need to return phone, but I'll never go back. With adrenaline shot and undervolt, I get about 2 days battery life.

Yeah, I have a long difficult process ahead of me to get my phone rooted again. I went back to the stock build and updated it to 2.3.4 but I decided I want CM7.1 again.

Completely forgot there was a paid version of ADW, so yesterday I went and finally bought it, since I love the free version.

So awesome.

I've been rocking Zeam on my phone. I guess I'm so used to it now that other launchers just seem clunky.

I used ADW for a while when I had the Nexus One, but as I loaded newer versions of Android on it I found that it was a bit bloated ... hence Zeam. My dad has the Nexus One now, with stock GB.

I tried Sense, too. My Thunderbolt came with Sense and I used it for a while, until I got sick of the lack of updates from HTC/Verizon and rooted it myself. I threw a ROM with Sense 3.5 onto it, and it was great eye candy, but it was really heavy too. So, I installed a Sense-less ROM and Zeam there too.

My new baby is a T-Mobile branded Samsung Exhibit II 4G! Using the T-Mobile prepaid $30 plan where I get 5GB of 4G data and 100 voice minutes a month. (Data is actually unlimited, but after 5GB it drops to EDGE speeds)

I absolutely love the phone for the $200 it cost me. One of the snappiest single core Android experiences I've had short of a tablet.

Specs:
3.7" SLCD screen (capacitive multitouch)
480x800 resolution
1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset (Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU)
512MB RAM, 1.5GB total onboard app storage (expandable with MicroSD of course)
Comes stock with Gingerbread and Touchwiz, but the build seems heavily optimized. VERY snappy!

I just spent 30 minutes getting the homescreens the way I like:
[Image: 576596_10150767738561525_633016524_95634...2903_n.jpg]

That's using GO Launcher Pro and their new 3.0 icon set... me likey.



About my only complaint on the phone is Samsung's usual lack of enthusiasm when it comes to releasing source and details for ALL of the hardware on their phones. It makes life hell for third party ROM developers... for instance right now there is an awesome port of CM9 for the phone, but the camera is b0rked because no one can figure out what hardware the camera uses and therefore no one can compile the right drivers into the kernel. Pisser.

And yes, I know it says 3G. Battery life sucks add in 4G. Planning on getting two Samsung extended batteries this Thursday.

Bought this combo for my phone, gotta love cheap ebay crap.

Basically consists of:

1 TPU rubber case
3x screen protectors
2x cheap Chinese extended batteries
1x external battery charger
1x USB data/charging cable

All for $13 shipped

Some people might poo poo me for buying those cheap screen protector films and those cheap chinese batteries, but I find that the cheap film works just as well as the expensive shit. I'll NEVER pay $25 goddamned dollars for a Zagg protector again... I had one on the Intercept and really hated not only the application process, but the weird ass rubbery orange peel finish of it.

As for the cheap chinese Li-Ion batteries I've had nothing but great luck with them sofar. I had a couple for my old Motorola Triumph, and for my old Optimus V.. and several of my family has them for their Optimus Vs. They always work at least as good as the stock batteries...

Amazon and Ebay are like the king of cheap cellphone accessories. Big Grin

I tried a generic battery in my Droid R2D2, phone wouldn't work at all Sad

Thinking of this since my GN is such a battery hog though.

Or this since its cheaper. Not sure. Like the price of the second one but the capacity of the first one....

That's a tough call... I <3 Anker batteries... but I'd probably go for the cheap chinese combo just because of all the accessories. Big Grin

In other news, I tried the V6 supercharger script on my Exhibit II and thought it went fine. However a few reboots later I was treated to the Gingerbread 'Touch the droid to begin setup' welcome screen... FUDGE! Somehow my /data partition got trashed.

Oh well, I needed to revert to stock to do a review video on the phone for my youtube channel anyways....

Oh and I also ordered a cheap chinese replacement for the battery in my little brother's HTC MyTouch 3G Slide... after two years his battery is toast and the phone will just shut down at random.

I'm now convinced it was something else I did that caused this... still not sure what.

I'm now running Peach Sunrise 1.2a which is basically a de-bloated stock ROM with a custom kernel. Got the V6 supercharger run on it and now it's oh so sweet (not that it wasn't before).

Now I'm just installing apps and whatnot... CardioTrainer, Google Music, TuneIn Radio, Draw Something, etc...

I actually paid for Draw Something - I find it that entertaining. I just wish some of you losers would play with me, lol.
