Default [ROM][DEV][WIP]Android 2.3.7 For Motorola Fire XT XT530/XT531

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*

 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
 */
I built a ROM from Stock Chinese XT532 SBF. This is ROM uses kernel 2.6.35.11. This ROM is the stock XT532 ROM.

Advantages:
Newer kernel version. Existing XT530/XT531 Kernels are Froyo Kernel. This kernel is the actual Gingerbread Kernel.
Newer drivers, so increased performance.

New Experimental Build Based on 2nd-init:

ROM Download For 2nd-init: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196536

Instructions on how to install 2nd-init ROM for XT530/XT531:

1. Flash back stock XT530/XT531 SBF via RSD-Lite.
2. Root and Install Bootmenu/CWM.
3. Put ROM zip in your SD Card.
4. Reboot device into CWM Recovery.
5. Wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache.
6. Install the zip from SD Card.
7. Reboot Phone.
8. Your Done.

If the ROM boots up via 2nd-init properly then we will be one step closer to CyanogenMod. This ROM uses the XT532 ramdisk and boots it via 2nd-init. 2nd-init ROM uses the stock 2.6.32.9 XT530/XT531 to execute XT532 ramdisk and runs it on top of the XT530/XT531 kernel.

Build based on boot.img and ROM

Downloads:
ROM:http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196135
boot.img:http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196191
flex.img:http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196189
hidden.img:http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196190

How to install a ROM not based on 2nd-init:

1. Install Bootmenu
2. Put ROM zip on the SD Card.
3. Download boot.img
4. Open a CMD line and cd to the folder where you put "boot.img" file.
5. Flash the boot.img via fastboot:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
Code:
fastboot reboot
6. Reboot into Clockworkmod Recovery.
7. Install the zip from sdcard.
8. Wipe cache/data factory reset from CWM Recovery.
9. Reboot phone.
10. You're done.

If radio isn't working, try using these instructions:

1. Download hidden.img and flex.img
2. Put the two img files in the same folder as fastboot.
3. Open a cmd file and cd to the folder which contains the img files.
4. Reboot the phone back into fastboot mode
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
5. Flash flex.img and hidden.img via this command in cmd
Code:
fastboot flash flex flex.img
Code:
fastboot flash hidden hidden.img
6. Reboot the device via this command in cmd
Code:
fastboot reboot
NOTE: These instructions also work for 2nd-init ROMs for Motorola Fire XT530/XT531.

Kernel Source:
Sorry, Motorola hasn't released the kernel source for XT532 which the ROM is based on. The ROM uses an unmodified Motorola XT532 Kernel.

Bugs:
You tell me as I don't own a Motorola Fire XT530/XT531

I don't know as I don't a Fire XT. Basically I just extracted the XT532 SBF and I winzipped the ROM. I signed it and uploaded. Make sure you make a nandroid before flashing the ROM

hi rootdefyxt320,
My question:
Is this different from the previous one that already tested in cwm thread?

Reverted back to 2.3.7 phone.apk to prevent FC
Changed some ADB settings
Added nvitems from our XT530
Added logcat reader for debugging, and root file manager for playing with files without having to re-flash.

Again, for whoever wants to test, please flash the new kernel first. Format data and cache partitions after flashing (right before rebooting).

Good News!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After flashing the new kernel and your last zip here is the report:
1. Wifi working and finds the network and I can connect to the internet with the browser and all other apps.
2. Radio isn't working. and can't select the network mode. I think it's because XT532 is CDMA based phone and not GSM (Because it's stuck on CDMA in Network Mode).
3. ADB working.
4. Root working with Super Su.
5. Bluetooth working.
6. Sound working.
7. FM Radio working perfect.

8. GPS working.
9. Notification bar showing Dual SIM Network icon.
10. DUAL SIM Setting in Settings.

Thanks man!!!!!
I'll figure what's up with the radio and will try to fix it!

Probably, but you can try for yourself. I'll see if I can fix RIL as it might not work.

Did you flash boot.img via fastboot before flashing the ROM and did you wipe data and factory reset?
