    how to install gingerman 7 man it keeps on hanging on bootloader mode

    • echenze says :

      Hi Stanley. I tested both Gingerman 7 and CyanogenMod 7 last week and sadly they don’t seem to work on the IDEOS. It ends up hanging at startup. Use Gingerman 6.5Sreen (install+multitouch) or Gingerman 6.1.

  4. Stan says :

    Thanx for rply ive tried all roms that are on 2.3 none seem to work coz ive tried froyoman,cyanoman,gingerman 7,6.5,6.5.1, 5.1, cyanogenmod 7 and 6 none of thm work any ideas???

    • echenze says :

      Did you root your IDEOS properly? If so then download the custom ROM (e.g Gingerman) plus its Multi-touch. If you aren’t sure whether you rooted properly then please root again and follow the procedure for installing a custom ROM. This issue of IDEOS only accepting ROMs that have multi-touch exists only with the older IDEOS (in Kenya, those bought between January 2011 and May 2011). If your device falls in this bracket then that’s the reason. Please install the new ROM then while still in recovery mode also install the multi-touch. It should work. Please ask if you still got problems.

    i just got cyanogenmod 7.2 running 2.3.7

    • echenze says :

      Cyanogen 7.2? Is it running well on your IDEOS? How’s the 2.3.7 Gingerbread? I’ve tried both CyanogenMod 7.0 & Gingerman 7.0 on my IDEOS and several others and they keep crashing. Only Gingerman 6.0 to 6.5 are very stable from my tests and usage on various IDEOS.

  6. Stan says :

    yap cyanogenmod 7.2 2.3.7 gingerbread it works very well plus wifi is okay I got it from the xda forum thingy its stable no issues apart from bad sound wen play music with its speaker with its highest volume…it backfired first install I did bcoz I didn’t format everything the first tym but after formatting boot,system,cache and data it worked
