Ericsson F5521gw and Huawei EM770W very similar (2G/3G modem + GPS), but EM770W also have serial audio I/O (see datasheet for details). It's sad when something doesn't work, but you have good chance to have voice call functions on your tablet
Could you help me to get that modem to work ? I'm not a dev and don't know how to integrate drivers into a ROM.

Hope I'm not asking too much.

Regards.

Hopefully, one of the kernel devs will get a chance to patch it.

As with Acer ICS for the 501, well, maybe in a few months. Anybody who has been around android for a couple years, knows to not expect anything till it happens.
Any updates Moscow Desire? SOD fixed? Any other problems?

Does it still take 8 mins to get a 3G connection after disconnecting WiFi?

I'm considering trying this but use 3G daily.

Thanks,
Jason

No updated builds yet, so nothing new to report. Unfortunately, I work during the week, and I need my usual 3.2.1 set-up, so haven't had it installed.

With some of the prior ICS builds (KANG, AOPK), turning off CRT Animations helped with SOD, but in the CM9 builds, this option isn't there, or at least I didn't find them. If one were using their tab, you could set display time-out to 30 minutes. Maybe running the ICS bootloader would fix it, but at this point I don't feel the need to flash bootloaders. Maybe this weekend I'll give the ICS bootloader a shot.

Regardless, some type of patch will have to be made either to the boot.img (kernel) or the bootloader to fix the permissions to /system. Both on HC and ICS.

The 3g worked, but best guess about 85% of the time. It liked to drop signal, too often for my taste, but still totally usable if you don't need a 100% full constant signal.

Tried out this ROM and it appears to be working fine however I have found the following issues.

NO ROOT hopefully this will be fixed soon.

when setting up the APN's it appears that when you add a new APN it does not appear. Not sure what is occurring but after adding new APN it showed no APN's in the screen and would not connect to data.
After a reboot it appears again and 3G works. I tried this a number of times even after wiping and reinstalling a few times same thing occurs.

looks like its pretty much usable for full time ROM.



Well done

One question:

In the OP under section 1.1 we can download a nvflash package with the run.bat script loading ics_boot_unlck.bin (1.165 kB) and recovery_thor17_403.img for us.

Has anyone a original honeycomb bootloader in bin format?

Would you mind to upload only the bootloader? At the moment I am sailing on the North Sea and I depends on a satellite connection, not fast and stable enough to download a 400+ MB archive. Thanks in advance.
