Gingerbangsense is a series of roms that should appeal to folks who prefer stock-based (read not ports) roms. There are several options: The goal of the "S" based roms are to provide experiences almost identical to the ota..but with root, small tweaks here and there...and certain options I feel are important to the root experience (power menu). The goal of the "M" based rom, is to provide enhancements to the latest current ota for the verizon droid incredible 2. The base rom will always based on whatever version of sense that the ota is (currently 2.1) but due to how awesome sense 3.0 is, we have included patches for it. Is this going to be the greatest rom ever? No, certainly not...but many people out there prefer a stock-like experience and that's what gingerbangsense is....with several mods that I personally think are useful/neat. :)

Q: What is the difference between M and S versions?
A: S= Stock(ish) rom, without any changes that people may or may not like (crt, modded rosie). M includes the features I personally like (crt, transparent rosie, launchkey remap of personalize button).

Q: Why a sense 2.1 rom instead of sense 3.0/3.5
A: Originally the purpose of this rom was to provide a stock + + rom (if you consider rmk's gingersense to be stock +) features customizations and mods that I felt many would want/prefer. Since sense 2.1 is what we have officially, thats what the rom is based off of. However flashing the sense 3.0 patch over gingerbangsense will give you many of the nicer sense 3 features. I have a sense 3.0 and a sense 3.5 rom out (trinity and gingerbliss) here on xda if that interests you.

Q: Do I need to wipe data/cache/etc when flashing?
A: As a best practice, regardless of previous setup, I would say yes. It helps narrow down issues/force closes/errors with the rom, otherwise whatever input we get isn't reliable. That being said, if you are running another fairly stock sense 2.1 rom, you could probably get away without wiping data. Worst case, make a nandroid, flash the rom and see what happens.
edit: as of the latest ota, you must wipe data or you will have serious issues.

Q: How do I assign an app to the personalize key in rosie?[(pre 4.0 m versions only)/B]
A: Open the included launch key app in your app drawer, and choose and app or action. Once you have assigned something, it will work.

Q: I wiped data and still having issues with the rom or its not booting into the os...what should I do?
A: Logcatting the issue is the best way for us to figure out whats going on. In a terminal
adb logcat > logcat.txt
hit ctrl + c when finished and a logcat.txt file will be in your tools or platform-tools folder (whatever u cd to). Post this with dropbox or pastebin for us to look at.

Q: Are there any themes for this rom?
A: Yes Better Slate has been updated (and gingerbread will work, with a quirk or two)
EDIT: these are currently not compatible with v3.5+ and will no longer be developed (i dont really theme anymore...its too time consuming)

Q: What clock speed does the kernel boot with?
A: As of version 1.5 (vanilla patches dont contain kernels) the phone will boot at stock speed and you must use an app like setcpu to overclock up to 1305 mhz
A: as of 2.0 there is currently no custom kernel

Q: Besides full themes, are there any good standalone sense 2.1 skins that will work with this rom?
A: Here are some I personally like: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1091564

Sharing Policy:
Pretty much every mod in this rom was originally created by someone else for another HTC phone...that being said, none of it was available for the stock VZW rom and took a lot of work to get functional. If you want to incorporate any jars, apks, or mods from this rom into your rom/theme/mod, feel free to do so...however I would appreciate if you would give me a heads up first and then wait for a week after I update the rom to update yours, credit in your op and a link back to this rom, thanks! (I do not however mean that its acceptable to take the entire rom, make 1 mod or change the theme and then release it as your own work...that is entirely different and not cool imo)

Used FastSum to check the MD5 and they were identical.

Coming from MIUI 1.8.12 with Tiamat 1.1.0. Factory reset in CWM, then flashed. Installation was successful. Upon restart, it hung at white HTC screen for about five minutes.

Pulled battery, booted into bootloader, started CWM, factory reset again, went to advanced, wiped Dalvik, went to mounts and storage, formatted cache and data again, then mounted system, reflashed. Now the screen gets past the white HTC, and into the plain cyan-colored "android." Waited close to ten minutes. Did not get past "android."

Got back into CWM, formatted cache/data/system. Flashed an old nandroid. Repeated the factory reset, then formatted cache & data for good measure, then mounted system. Reflashed.

No dice; third time was most definitely not the charm :( Hangs at HTC screen. Advice?

The radio is I didn't upgrade to a GB radio as this current one was working fine for me on Virtuous, so I didn't want to mess with a seemingly good thing.

I need to have my phone for the rest of the day, so I'll give this another go tomorrow morning, and logcat the boot.

Round 2 ;)

Coming from Virtuous 1.3.3 with whatever kernel comes with that, same radio as prior post (the most recent stock froyo that came with the phone.)
CWM (orange in color)


  1. Nandroid Backup
  2. Wiping using Factory Reset
  3. Wiping cache
  4. Mounts and Storage > Format Data
  5. Mounts and Storage > Format Cache
  6. Mounts and Storage > Format system
  7. Advanced > Wipe Battery Stats
  8. Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache
  9. Installing TSM
  10. Eating Pop-Tart
  11. Opening Win7 Command Prompt, adb -d logcat>mylogfile.txt, waiting for device
  12. Plug in device; Rebooting

It got past the HTC screen and to the cyan "android" again. However, I don't think that logcat command did anything because the Command Prompt is still waiting for device. I kept getting "USB device is malfunctioning" errors, which I hadn't before.

Pulled the battery, tried again. Hangs at HTC screen. No love from the logcat. Am I doing something wrong?

logcat will just run blankly if u told it to > logcat.txt ...just close terminal when u think its logged enough, go to ur tools/platform-tools folder and there should be a logcat.txt file in there
I don't know what's going on with this thing. I can't get it to recognize the device... I'm back on Virtuous and trying to get it to connect to adb and it's no go. It won't be detected by "adb devices" no matter which USB connection setting I select.

I read somewhere that someone had luck installing rmk's gingersense and then installing gingerbang over that, so I'm giving that a go at the moment. I'll try and logcat the boot if I can, but it's not being cooperative at all...

EDIT. got past the white HTC and am stuck on cyan "android" again. It's not logcatting. it just creates an empty .txt file. Windows keeps telling me that one of the USB devices is malfunctioning. I'm going to try it in Linux Mint, but if that doesn't work, I don't know what to do.

On a lark, I installed gingersense and let it boot, which it did. I'm at a loss. Tomorrow if I've got time i will try a new download of tsm and try a different approach...
it could be issues with ur phone and the kernel...when we have a kernel less version and updated kernel might the fix
