Arrow [REF]Galaxy SII ICS CM9 Progression Updates Here

Right thread is for updates and news in regarding how the progress of the port is coming along for the ICS to our Galaxy SII. Updates will be coming from directly from teamhacksung. I will be staying intouch with Codeworkx and will be providing the latest feedback he gives me to share on the thread with the rest of the community here.

What's working
  • Display
  • Touchscreen
  • RIL
  • Audio
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • Sensors (needs tweaking)
  • SD Cards
  • Bluetooth
  • HWComposer (strange things are going on)

What’s not working?
  • Microphone on Phone Calls (trying to write a HAL from scratch)
  • Camera
  • Video Recording
  • Video Codecs
  • Device Encryption
  • USB Sharing (kernel update needed)

More Updates-12.12.11
Quote from the man himself:

Now with much more IceCream on my Sandwich!

Let me have a look at my visionarys orb.

I can see…
- Kernel 3.0.9
- New RIL (doesn’t work with old modem firmwares)
- TouchWiz (i still hate it, doesn’t feel good, stock aosp ics feels much better)
- Opencore is finally gone
- looks cleaner under the hood
- still old alsa, not the new tinyalsa
- users won’t be impressed


Now let me watch on my device…
- aosp framework
- graphics seems to work good
- it has sound, but cannot test mic beacuse of ril problems
- ril isn’t working very good, crashing all the time. might need to add a new samsung ril class like in the past
- gps seems to work
- hwcomposer is running
- camera is running
- bluetooth works
- wifi works
- sensors aren’t working yet, but should be no problem
- usb sharing works


Ok, too much said already.

Having Kernel sources would make it much easier, but that’s probably far away.
Stay tuned! Maybe we get ril fixed in a few days then we got something really amazing and clean for you.


More Updates 12/12/2011:
Today we could spend some more time to fiddle with this stuff.
RIL is very unstable, even on the leak.
It’s not usable. Probably have to wait for a newer leak. :(
My o2 card doesn’t work, my vodafone card works.
Might be NITZ related.

Some little bugs here and there like unamplifed haptic feedback, broken sdcards and some other little things.
Sound is working, Mic is working :) , Camera is working, Wifi is working, Bluetooth is working, HWComposer, TVOutService is up…


To fix every little bug we need kernel sources for sure. So probably in january 2012.
If we can get RIL stable, we might release a aosp/cm9 build for you.
But don’t point at us if we don’t.

Latest from the team...Stay tuned for more as i get it...

Developers working on the project:
  • atinm
  • Adam G
  • codeworkx
  • coolya
  • GuiPer
  • nebkat
  • Unhelpful
  • xplodwild


Thanks:
  • To teamhacksung for working their magic to bring CM9 to us.
  • Codeworkx for his help in keeping this thread up to date.
  • And to Stylez, Conantroutman here for helping me out with previous thread and this one now.
Big thanks for the efforts of the AOSP team as well who as well started this whole project and now it is being carried on by TeamHacksung. Netchip, Yjwong, Chadouming, Biohazard and Paradoxxx deserve a mention as well because they to put a lot of effort in the project just a shame they could not carry on..So please give them thanks as well for their efforts.

Please read carefully here to:
If you don't stop annoying devs, they'll leave XDA forever. If this happens you'll never get this ICS Port onto your Phone. You have to wait for Samsung to release something which might be usable in about some Months. Start using your brains, read threads fully and understand it before you're going to add a post. And they are doing their best to get as fast as they can a stable build out to us. So we in return we can be patient and wait. All updates will be above and Codeworkx and i will bring the latest in the sticky here. Please watch here also

Default Latest so far from Codeworkx and the team

Since our try’s to get the microphone working on ICS using the samsung audio HAL wen’t bad, we decided to write a ICS compatible HAL from scratch. (stealing some code from the galaxy nexus)

Actually we’re able to control all ~134 mixer controls from within our HAL. We’re able to open the PCM’s and we’re able to read/write to it. The hardware dependant part is also working (e.g. telling the audio hw that we’re doing a call).
But all this doesn’t make sound working. We don’t know which mixers we have to set on which cases to get a little bit of sound, for example, out of the speaker.

The next few days will probably be wasted on figuring out which controls we have to touch at the right time.

The task is like jumping over a 100 miles height wall, because we’ve no documentation for the hardware and nobody of us knows what we’re doing. xD
But hey we’ve a damn big bulldozer. ;)
Hope we’ve enough fuel for it to break the wall down.

Default 13/12/2011 Video Update with the latest by Ouverta



Latest video update regarding CM9


14/12/2011 New ICS leak by SamMobile:




From what you can see not really much to play with and not much to get excited about. I personally was going to download and see what it feels like but it just reminds me of the alpha builds...For me it is a miss. Views from people who have downloaded it though please post and let me know what you thought of this

Default [5/12/2011]More Updates.

New state -> waiting

Opensource Audio HAL:
Without any documentation or hints itís a try & error task for some weeks.

Using Audio Blobs:
Not really possible because big S broke the ABI.
Did a lot of hacking on it, but itís hopeless.

USB Gadget:
Big S touched the original Google USB Gadget code and made it a mess. Itís hooked up to touchscreen, charger, battery, mhl and probably some more stuff.
Not possible to implement the new USB Gadget required for USB Sharing without spending lot of time on it to clean up this disaster.

Graphics:
Nebkat and xplodwild fixed the graphics corruption on rotation and crt-off effects.

New state -> waiting for new kernel sources and a ICS leak.
Extended state -> We are very pissed about big S.

If big S is not going to be more cooperative, next Device will be a Google Device.

So far this is the latest updates by the team. It is kinda stop and start and very frustrating from what you can see but the team is trying so fingers crossed. Show support and patience and i am sure our patience will be rewarded

Default New Links from SamMobiles..ICS leak maybe next week

https://twitter.com/#!/SamMobiles/status/145562676972621824
https://twitter.com/#!/SamMobiles/status/145602356896210945


For those who didnít know yet:
The Guys from SamMobiles got a first ICS leak for the I9100 (with TouchWiz), but it looks like they donít want to share before their new site gets online.

This means weíll have the leak probably next week.
We asked them about just getting the blobs we need, but no chance.
They donít want to share anything.

But hey, itís just one week more. ;)




Latest info from Codeworkx.

Just check the OP for updates, don't read the thread....................
And just to add it's an open sticky as already stated so as the OP can edit posts permissions wouldn't allow the edits on closed thread....

Most users respect wishes of OP and also mods but some can't read a small request! Its simple as if users can't respect a request and feel the need to increase mods time via posting then infractions will be placed.

Everything is set out in an easy laid FAQ info and being updated regularly as already stated if you have info PM OP to which even the link previous goes straight to PM write.. hay can't be that hard.

Think I need say no more...

Thx to users who can follow simple guidelines
