Neets:NZtechfreak: OK, Titanium Backup restoring my apps (how on earth did I get so many? 93 not including SuperUser and Titanium???). Benchmarks etc to follow...
Did you download the Samfirmware one or the Doc one?
Samfirmware one from XDA.
Disabled Voodoo lagfix, flashed with Odin, factory reset, flashed Chainfire Root (restores 2e recovery, clockworkmod compatible, and Roots), Titanium Backup to restore apps and then a while getting everything up to speed again.
So far impression are very favourable indeed.
Speed is good, but then it always is post flash, although thats with ~95 apps installed after Titanium was done, so still gives me a good feeling about how this will perform over time. I'm getting ~1100 on Quandrant with this one, for whatever thats worth.
Lots of little bugfixes that I really like in here - default player now reads playlist files, setting custom ringtones to individual contacts from the default player finally works, I read that subtitles now work in the video player, 339MB RAM free at boot on this firmware. TouchWiz seems a lot more decent, although I quickly got LauncherPro Plus running of course, but it now has the Sense-styled leap view (and you can rearrange the preview cards, which is nice and needed in LauncherPro). Press Reader app works.
Sadly still no LastFM scrobbling with the inbuilt player, so I guess its still WinAmp for me at the moment.
They still haven't fixed the camera app so that you can turn off geotagging if you wanted to, its enabled by default.
There is the usual post-flash enthusiasm for the GPS at XDA, will see how it performs tomorrow with Run.GPS now that I'm cycling to work again (on JPK I found it fine for navigation, but it struggled with tracking activities this week - it was either fine or awful, restart would fix it though).
Browser speed is improved, but now get the dreaded checkerboard pattern on scrolling before pages fully load, and they still haven't fixed zoom reflowing properly. Overall I'll take the speed though.
Only app incompatibility casualty so far appears to be BattStatt, which just sits there saying loading the whole time. Will email the dev (brilliant text widget for battery).
