[ROM] Corvus5 (newbe5 and Corvus teamed ROM)
newbe5 and me joined to create the biggest, best, and beautyfull rom for Advent Vega and POV Mobii.
(Old features from CorvusVegaRom 0.5)
NTFS, CIFS, and some other kernel tweaks
Patched against last malware (search xda for info)
CWM recovery added directly in the installation, and app to access it too.
Full Market working
Automount of FAT and NTFS devices
CIFS/NFS support (with Mount Manager from market)
VPN support (replace tun.ko module in /system/lib/modules with the one in the modules.zip)
Sqlite3 exec for modify app databases
gps.conf updated for better fixing
apns-conf.xml updated for 3G dongles
Reboot option added to shutdown menu
Fix BSOD when reboot, no more black screens...
Multitouch for Google Maps
Ads blocked using host file. (If you have any problem with this go to /system/etc/hosts and delete any problematic line).
Screen calibration app added.
Added a script to know if we are in host or slave mode, and GscriptLite that is needed.
Added Wfi Ad-Hoc support, so now can connect to ad-hoc networks.
(NEW in Corvus5)
Updated kernel with overclocking to 1.4Ghz
Performance boost, now in smartbech 2011 we get +4000/+2000 points !!!
Added scripts to check/switch the way accelerometer works (game mode or mouse mode, so this can be selected)
Added TapNTap keyboard from Viewsonic G Tab
Replaced Gallery3D with 32bit-Gallery3D
Updated Clockwork Recovery to 220.127.116.11 (this still shows as 18.104.22.168 in ROM manager, but it is updated)
Removed Paul's Recovery Tool
Added ROM Manager (this can reboot you into recovery, so no need for 2 tools)
Removed Phone related APK's (Battery AHOY! This should increase battery life significantly, definately has for me!. This files can be added again using 3gFiles.zip attached)
Disabled Setup Wizard (will ask for google account information when you first run Market)
Removed VTL Launcher (All users have their own preference, so you can install which launcher you like)
Removed Task Manager (Pretty useless app imo, install better a one from the Market if you need one)
FIXED ACCELEROMETER!! This is now 100% working with perfect sensitivity for games etc, you MUST disable screen auto-rotation in settings for this to work properly.
*To help the above, newbe5 have created an auto-rotate on/off widget with a theme to match the rest of the ROM. Add it to your home screen from the Widgets menu as normal.This widget is a modified version of the one released on the Market for free by Jason Hull. Thanks Jason!
THEME! A whole new theme has been created from scratch specifically for this ROM. This theme was created by newbe5 and is called: GRID.
As part of the theme, most (if not all) of the transition animations have been changed to smoother ones.
I have compiled a bunch of modules lile tun, eyetoy module, some modules for dvb-t dongles and some for gamepads. They are attached, but no support for them... use at your risk.
BEFORE MAKE ANYTHING, PLEASE READ THIS FULL POST AND DO A NANDROID BACKUP (WITH CWM). I WILL NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY IN ANY WAY IF YOU BRICK, EAT, OR SIT YOUR TABLET
md5sum of zip file:
If you have problems installing with CWM or adb, try using Rom Manager.
For enter usb host mode:
Press power button, once display get power (you will see the diference), press back button and hold until finish booting.
For know usb mode:
In Gscript Lite, we only need to create a new script and use "cat /data/var/mode" without quotes and with "Needs SU?" marked. It will return in what mode are we, slave or host.
For 3g Dongle (with 3gFiles.zip added):
Start in host mode (back button pressed until vega boots) with 3g dongle inserted.
Once started, extract and put back 3G dongle. If you have PIN it will ask for it.
Test dongle (mine green is working, light blue is detected, but not connected, dark blue is connected). If it stalls in light blue, you have a problem with apns, edit /system/etc/apns-conf.xml or pm me.
In Links2SD you get an error first time you start it... reboot tablet and works ok.
If no music or wallpapers are show:
Load "Dev Tools" and restart the media scanner and once completed everything was shown
For check/change accelerometer mode:
With connectbot exec...
/system/bin/MouseGameModeChecker.sh to see in what mode is your tablet.
/system/bin/MouseGameSwitcher.sh to switch from game to mouse and back.
Put the setcpu.txt file attached in the root of your sdcard and then start setcpu (if you have started earlyer, must press menu and press the left button "device") then select the bottom button (custom freqs) then you can move the slide to 1400000.
Download CPU Meter from market. It must detect the freqs and let you use them. Dont change any other parameter, use at your own risk.
AS ALWAYS DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE DO ANYTHING WITH YOUR TABLET.
Using CWM (RECOMENDED).
Do a Full Wipe before flashing the rom (not needed, but can cause problems)
Copy Corvus5.zip to sdcard and update like any other update.
Not using CWM. (NOT RECOMENDED)
If you ave CWM, use the other way, if not, use this.
Unzip the file and use install-x where x is your operating system. If windows doesnt recognize the tablet use the usb drivers that are into the zip. This is the way that Modaco ROM is installed so if you have problem, please go to its post to see how to resolve.
