Well folks, installed my first custom rom, running Darky's rom, with Speedmod Kernel looks pretty slick so far. As usual, the first boot, held my breath, was watching the progress bar, it ohh the wait. But all is fine. Thank you all for your help in my quest..Smile

Well all that breath holding clearly didn't turn you blue like a Smurf, you live to enjoy the new rom.  Cool!

Lol, nah, but watching the progress bar was kinda excruciating, but as they say, the journey has just began...

Okie dokie.  Wifi Analyzer installed.  I could see the neighbours also vying for the same channel.  So I've moved on and picked another number.  Now we're neighbours without being right on top of each other!  So have I gotten the point right about the purpose of Wifi Analyzer and then choosing a channel that is "vacant" to stop other people all drawing from the same channel which is potentially weakening the signal strength?

If I'm right, then it's a bit like the water pressure.  Your shower is great so long as you're the only one in the street having a shower at that time.  But if the neighbours run water at the same time, you might end up with a trickle.  Ok, I over simplify perhaps, but it's an analogy that I can work with, assuming I'm right.

And our shower is excellent, in case you were concerned for my hygiene ;-)

The interface is super slick.. I remember loving Cyanogen 6.1 except for the horrendous battery drain..

Thanks for opening my eyes to CM7.

Battery life seems to be pretty decent so far, still kinda hard to gauge as theres a lot of debugging enabled on the kernel which uses up the battery. Still getting around 2 days average though. Only major issues left is the ril polling, camera and wifi sleep. I guess the compass too but It's really not that useful anyway.

Interesting that at the other end of the house, the signal strength reduced becuase I'm further away from the router, and then I picked up someone else's router in wifi analyzer.  Don't know who becuase they've not had the forethought to name their router.  So having thought I escaped the neighbours I was now competing with someone else.  Have changed again this morning.  Now I'm plumb between them both, but with no overlap.

Why channels 2/6/9/12?  Are channels beyond that known to deteriorate anyway?

According to the always (somewhat) reliable wikipedia you should be able to use channels 1 through 13 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels (though the article mentions that because of overlap between channels "using only channels 1, 6, 11, and 14 is recommended to avoid interference").

thanks for that.  Right, I'm on 6.  The neighbours look to be in the negatives but peak at 2 and the other unknown person is right up there at around 12 (I was 9).  No body come here and pinch 6, it's where I am, and I'm rather happy with it :-D

Hi Itr0nic.  I think there's a video on the Darky thread on XDA.  I don't use his rom.  And I'm pretty sure there's some videos on YouTube of installing his rom.  I believe Darky also has his own Facebook page.  Perhaps you might get some specific details there.  Though I'm pretty sure there's a couple of bods on this thread on Telecom XT with his rom.  Hopefully they'll have some more specific details to share with you.  And welcome :)

This guide which is linked to the Doc an Stefunel's page is very comprehensive http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=926399 and gives you links to all the required files.

The one point that I would stress before you get started with flashing your new custom rom, is to learn how to backup the efs folder on your new phone and put it somewhere safe. Read this http://www.galaxyroot.com/warning-backup-your-efs-folder-before-you-flash/
