  1. Great Job, I'll try it out! Thanks!

  2. @Anonymous

    some ppl said it got problem with calling. I've added link to v2.0.5a. enjoy :)

  3. I have a doubt, in "mod version" it shows up MiniCM7-2.0.4, but I`m supposed to be using, is this OK? or do I have wrong version?

  4. @nrgmaster

    I think yes. Maybe the developer forgot to change those. I haven't tested it myself. still doing some experiment of my battery life.

  5. @nrgmaster

    check camera. if no FC when using full 3.2MP, that means the ROM is 2.0.5 :)

  6. Tks, I don`t know what FC means, but my guess from what I`ve read would be "something going wrong" :) and no, camera work perfectly on 3.2Mp, so I`ll assume everything it's OK

  7. @nrgmaster

    FC means "Force Closes". there's a popup showing error messages. ok then, enjoy the ROM. :)

  8. several camera shutter clicks makes the camera not functioning!!!! :((

  9. @Tharindu Rankothge

    its a common bug. it will be ok after reboot. try GingerDX, the camera is fixed now, in apps as well (Barcode scanner etc)

  10. yaa..GingerDX is better!!i tried both GingerCruzt and MiniCM7 (Both latest ones)...
