Just curious if anybody has heard about a gingerbread based release for the CyanogenMod N1 Nightly?

I haven't seen a nightly update from ROM Manager Premium for about half a month now.

They're working on it. I've got an HTC Hero and one of the CM devs has released a very alpha build, as has another independent dev. So I'm positive the work is being done by the CM team for your Nexus One as well. :)

You may want to check the CM website to check for details on progress. I believe it's going to be called CM 7.

I've got hero too, running froydVillain 1.7.2 with flykernel-12a. Just heard bad news erasmux (flykernel developer)is leaving kernel development indefinitely. He will be missed from hero development dearly. It is sad time for hero ahead without flykernel.

Yeah, I've been following that as well. I'm running his Floyo ROM and of course his kernel too. It's a bummer man.

Nice! The versions for the Hero aren't quite primetime yet (no camera, sensors, etc.).

Enjoy!

i haven't used it personally but peoplehave reported twice as fast than tweaked froyo on hero. i don't use camera that much so won't have much problem but i'd still wait for final release of CM7 when ready. Users reported 60FPS on neocore benchmark. I got 35.5 on FV 1.7.2 with flykernel-12a so indeed it is a big jump.

fortunately for the N1, the camera, sensors and everything just works. :P

Google left out a lot of the driver code for the older, lower spec phones in the GB release so the devs are having to do a fair bit of hacking to get stuff working right. :(

It looks like it's just down to the camera now, though!

Tried Cronos Gingerbread 0.0.7 beta, bit sluggish on few apps other than looking very snappy. However, I have reverted back to my nandroid restore of FV 1.7.2 for the time being until I think it is stable enough for my hero. I did get 57.5 FPS on neocore using 748Mhz cpu freq with Cronos 0.0.7. So far looking promising as elelinux fixed apps2sd for it as well. I will try again next week.

Yeah, I'm watching that one closely as well. I'm going to wait until it's little bit more polished before trying it out. I'm pretty happy with Floyo for the time being.

just out of curiosity what is your Quadrant score for hero and at what cpu-freq using floyo?

Using Floyo at 176/614. Quadrant score 404.

What's your score on FV?

wow that's fantastic!! I think i should move to floyo.

On FV my quadrant score is 301 with flykernel-12a on 176/748.

Have you done any extra tweaks or flashed additional patches?

Yesterday I flashed the newest OpenGL 1.1, so that may very well have something to do with it. Check the FV 1.7.2 thread for the patch. I can definitely see the difference when using Gallery3D, but with other stuff it's not as noticeable.

EDIT: Here's a thread for you to look at about it. And pulser says he's going to make a patch for FV soon that includes this so you should be good to go: http://www.villainrom.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?3958-Working-OpenGL-ES-1.1!

Cheers mate. Will try the patch and see if it makes any difference with benchmark.

BTW have you tried angrybirds, does it still run in slowmotion?

This is your lucky day! :D I haven't tried Angry Birds from the Market recently, but I did find this...

It's not perfect, but it runs better than any other "patched" version of Angry Birds I've tried and you can see all of the missing textures from the old version. In short, it's totally playable dude!

Nice one!

I flashed OpenGL 1.1 for FV1.7.2 but still the score was 301.

found a new 2.2.1 and gingerbread tweaked rom on xda - Elelinux-6.2.0-RC0-Hero. Here is the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=906552

using OpenGL 1.1

First impression, it seems like it was on steroids:)

Ran benchmarks on 176/749 cpu-freq:
Quadrant score - Incredible 445 :o surpassed Sony X10i for the first time.
Neocore - still decent 37.1 FPS

Angry birds very playable but i will still apply the patch you mentioned in previous post, cheers for that!

I can highly recommend this rom if not going gingerbread give it a try.

Cool, thanks for the recommendation on Elelinux's ROM. When I get the urge to flash again I'll give it a try!

Thanks mate for patched angry bird. It is seemless like made for hero. I am hooked on it now.:)

I'll be using hero until it breaks now.
Who needs snapdragon when you got Hero devs to squeeze enough juice out device!

Well Google and HTC are in there for marketing their products and make mor emoney. If they update hero no one will buy their so called "new devices".

There is so much sudden development going on with Hero and new devs are joining in. I am thinkin myself to delve into it once I get some spare time.
