mtlrippr: does Longhorn work better than that Olleh Gingerbread ROM for this device? 'Better' as in, less lag and unresponsive apps?
Asfand Nasar: is this rom is stable ... does u get random reboot and heating problem with it ?? :/
DJTamamon: does anyone else find that bootloader animation to be really obtrusive and annoying?
dragonballz0: Thank you for the tutorial, these are great steps.
You really don't need to root your Dell Streak 5 (mini) to install Longhorn 2.3.7. I had 2 Streaks (had 2, sold 1), installed Longhorn 2.3.7 on the second unused Streak and it worked perfectly. That Streak I sold with Longhorn as I was using the first one with stock 2.2.2 ROM.
I'll upload the video I took when I performed the ROM update (made a video, haven't uploaded yet).
carljones172: I love that dell tablet
pcnuke: I also read where unlocking any personally owned phone is illegal from this point on! Read this: Unlocking new phones now banned under DMCA, the EFF weighs in -- URL is linked in (more info) above.
pcnuke: the URL link to longhorn updates is in the (more info) link above
First learn how to root your phone (as I explained above)
then learn how to put the ROM on your SD card in ROOT folder
then watch the link in more info (above) on how to flash the ROMs zip file
Jeff Jones: Yeah. I'll try that. I got DSC rom 1.5 and it just unrooted itself???? It's wierd
pcnuke: not really anymore, someone made a simple android app that you can install to root or unroot your v2.3 android system. I dont have my Dell anymore, but as I remember the android app was called Gingerbreak and with the click of 1 button you can root or unroot the phone as much as you want
pcnuke: Longhorn 2.9.3 Updated 9-5-12 - xda-developers
search on google for link to updated Longhorn ROM
It will run on Dell Streak 5
pcnuke: Root by way of computer use: SuperOneClick
Or Phone root use: The program called Gingerbreak
