There have been numerous complaints about the state of Gingerman v5.1. I think the general opinion is that it is not as good as previous versions. There have also been numerous bug reports and bad comments about it.
People - this is a free ROM and you aren't paying for it. People may say that this is the case for other ROMs as well. But these other ROMs can release have no restrictions on them - they aren't limited by anything. I however am limited by the fact that I have to stick to the CM7 tree - so any changes in CM7 - for better or worse affects the ROM directly and I ma unable to do anything about it.
Many people have reported "bugs" in the ROM - which are actually changes / bugs in CM 7. I can't do anything about these as I am not part of the CM project. E.g. APN not being detected automatically is definitely a CM issue as ports for other devices have also reported this issue.
I will do my level best to fix these issues regardless but please don't take such a negative tone all the time- If there are genuine bugs then by all means report it. But please don't criticise it. I have put a lot of time and effort into the ROM and it makes me feel bad that people criticise it.
Remember. This is Gingerbread. When I first got this phone I thought it would be luck if someone managed to get Gingerbread booting on the phone. This is actually a fully working working port albeit with some bugs. For ages there was a build with just the phone booting - nothing else.
Still my thanks go out to all of you especially for those people who have supported me. Hopefully v6 will be a much better release.
