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 terminaladb logcat > logcat.txthit 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
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)
