    @John_2k2 I'm done installing this rom. It just went easy, smooth and great. I'm loving this rom a lot already! loving the theme and features. Thanks for getting rid of bloatwares crap from stock! You the man @John_2k2
    \m/    BTW This rom looked like Nexus S 4g. lmao

  • john_2k2john_2k2 October 2011

    @PesTiciDe I'm Really glad you love the ROM its really fast and fantastic battery life too will be updating soon :)

  • AcexDestroyerAcexDestroyer October 2011

    WOW Its great to see the same guys that used to make Cliq ROM's I used now making Sidekick 4G ROM's that I shall now use! Bought a sidekick for $180 on ebay :)

  • john_2k2john_2k2 October 2011

    Great! trust me this phone is very smooth and has great battery life far exceeds the Cliq :D

  • AcexDestroyerAcexDestroyer November 2011

    So I've been using this ROM since my last comment and I've got to hand it to ya, its the best I've seen a Sidekick 4G operate. Battery life is outstanding, minimal freezes/glitches (FAR BETTER THAN STOCK) and much cleaner. 


    Thank you sir!

    Hey im new to this and i rooted my Sidekick 4G already and copied the Ginger 1.2 zip to my SD card...am i missing anything? It would be a great help Thanks

  • john_2k2john_2k2 November 2011

    @PesTiciDe you welcome :)


    @xXN3SQU1CKXx Just download "ROM Manager" from the android market and open and select "Flash clockworkmod recovery" if it asks for super user permission just select allow and then it should be done then shut down your device and then press and hold your Vol + and - and power. the moment your display turns on let go off the power button and continue to hole the vol keys. 

    in recovery (if properly flashed) selected "wipe data" and after select "flash zip from sd card and select GG 1.2 and it should begin flashing and then reboot and watch the magic ;)

    I recommend looking into updating this ROM to be built on the newer KJ2 build. Reference: http://tinyurl.com/735u874

  • john_2k2john_2k2 November 2011

    tried it myself, not updating. its a unofficial build and  i noticed ALOT of bugs and Crashes

  • AcexDestroyerAcexDestroyer November 2011

    Good to know, I've been using that leaked stock build for awhile, its not bad for me. A lot better than the older KD1/KG2 builds in my experience but there's still some gripes about it. Probably making a switch soon lol. I love everything about the sidekicks UI except the dock.. (I guess because I had a sidekick for 3 years prior to android and enjoy the innovations)

  • john_2k2john_2k2 November 2011

    thats nice. um i might just upload a optional KJ2 build version and I'm About to upload my Imitation ICS ROM based on KJ2 and its working wonderfully feel free to chat with me on Gtalk @ JohnPrentice95@Gmail.com and if you could help me test before release ;)

  • PesTiciDePesTiciDe November 2011

    @john_2k2 I don't mind help and test your ICS Rom for you and I can give you any feedbacks. :-)

  • john_2k2john_2k2 November 2011

    Nice to hear :)

  • john_2k2john_2k2 December 2011

    Updated :D

  • AcexDestroyerAcexDestroyer December 2011

    I'm backkkkkkk. Running 2.0 as of 3am this morning. So far so good. Question though, Do you have a copy of the task killer normally pre-installed on the Sidekick? I used it a lot and was sad to see it missing from this release


  • PesTiciDePesTiciDe December 2011

    Whoa! I got to try this new version!

  • PesTiciDePesTiciDe December 2011

    I got it and loving the new features on v2.0. My only two questions are, what happen to Nexus S Microbes Live wallpaper and the option to enable/disable  that tap to update your status to Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace on the status bar?

  • cmzeungescmzeunges December 2011

    flashing now, thanks man!
