Info 2 [FAQ] >> RBAP for miniCM7 by nAa, nAa's kernel X10mini/X8/x10miniPRO .: 03/12/2012 :.

Read Before Asking Please

FAQ for MiniCM7, nAa kernel, FXP (should be added soon) and any other custom rom maybe
reading may answer to lots of your questions !

for X10mini, X8 & x10miniPRO




  • since people do not pay attention at this FAQ linked in miniCM7 first post,
  • i decided to create a new thread dedicated to Q&A about miniCM7 and nAa's kernel
  • this thread is the place of your questions, answers, tips about nAa's kernel and miniCM7 by nAa
  • so please, as usual, read FAQ, use search option or anything else before asking commonly answered questions
  • the FAQ will be incremented when needed
  • the Q&A are in random order

before all the Q&A below : one is most important :
in order to install miniCM7 2.1.X you NOW need :
- to read this upgrade guide
- to read that post
- to unlock your bootloader (see also here)
- to flash nAa's kernel for X10mini, for X8, for x10miniPRO

if not, you will brick your phone. -> read this then, that may help you : !!!!
--> i think it is still too small ...


something else that is useful to read before asking :

Here we (nearly all? XDA members, regardless of being devs or only users [like me], me at least ) don't care about your good/bad English the important is trying to be understood and to understand the content of the threads


only ask things you can't find, or you don't understand, please if you don't understand something in any process tell us exactly where is your problem : it will optimize the answer

sometime rephrasing things can make you understand better, feel free to help us for making the most understandable sentence for anybody

i'm always trying to use a proper English (not so easy for a non native English ^^)
but if there's something misunderstood because of my English your are welcome to correct me

BUT if you don't make the effort to read, I won't make the effort to answer (ok, you can't read everything... but read the minimum )

that's it


Instructions regarding miniCM7-2.1.X installation:
  • Download the latest all-in-one package from the release link that follows
  • Backup your /data contents: contacts, apps, sms, etc. or backup via recovery
  • Move the MiniCM7-xxx.zip to the root folder of your sdcard and rename it to update.zip. Optionally, download the suggested Google Apps for CM7 (check http://cmw.22aaf3.com/gapps/ if you want to experiment with other gapps versions)
  • Unlock your bootloader, if you haven't already, using the stuff in unlock/ folder. Check http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1254225 for a nice tutorial
  • Flash the nAa kernel using Flashtool. To to this:
    - Turn off your phone
    - Start the Flashtool\X10FlashTool.exe and select Flash. Then select the E10_nAaxxx kernel firmware (this flashes both the kernel.sin and the loader.sin)
    - Keep the back button pressed while connecting the usb cable. Flashtool should detect your phone and flash the kernel.
    - Once done, disconnect the usb cable and power on the phone.
    Once the logo appears, press the back button repeatedly to enter CWM4.x.
    - Select 'backup and restore -> Backup'
    - Select 'wipe data/factory reset' (SUGGESTED)
    - Select 'apply update from sdcard'
    - Flash gapps
  • Reboot (first boot will take ~2 mins)
  • Once your device has booted, you can navigate to CM Settings -> System -> Update notifications and select 'Register'. This way you can get update notifications on new versions of MiniCM7!

tell your device's name, and the rom+kernel you are using
________________________________
FAQ :

for miniCM9 refer to THIS THREAD PLEASE



for quick search, use ctrl+f and enter keyword, you should find an answer to your question

1/ I can’t see incoming call number, what can I do ?
Change CM Settings -> Lockscreen -> Style options -> Incoming call style choose sliding tabs





2/ my LED is not blinking properly is there any way to change that?
If you’re using miniCM 2.0.5 you must delete delete /system/lib/hw/lights.x10mini.so
If you’re using miniCM 2.0.6 & 2.0.7, 2.1.0,2.1.1, 2.1.2or2.1.3 you must delete /system/lib/hw/lights.robyn.so with rootexplorer or any other file manager that allows you to explore and modify root files
handcent led settings does not work properly with lights.robyn.so
of course, you need to reboot your phone after that.
then : After the restart, go to CyanogenMod settings/Interface/LED notifications/Advanced make sure everything is unchecked, select Reset and then reboot again.
of course, you need to reboot your phone after that.
also try this : go to CyanogenMod settings/Interface/LED notifications/Advanced then tick and untick "random colors" this may solve everything if not :

you can"t delete the file? see q33/

REDELETE AFTER EACH UPDATE if you have the same problem SINCE THE FILE IS REWRITTEN

this Q/A2 is also True for all builds of MiniCM9 and 10


3/I want SE stock keyboard on this ROM !!
Just long press on any txt you’re typing on, “choose input method” then choose default input





4/ I’m already running an older version on miniCM7 (2.0.4 for example) do I have to perform a factory reset/ full wipe ?
There’s no need to factory reset in that case
you may have to perform this to avoid performance issue : here


5/ I’m already running an older version on miniCM6 (1.0.2 for example) do I have to perform a factory reset/ full wipe ?
Yes, absolutely, same as if you were under gingerDX, SE stock rom or any other non miniCM7 based. you will loose ALL your data that are on phone memory (sms/mms, contacts, calendar...) if you're sync to a google account, your contacts and calendar should be preserved



q4/ and q5/ : to upgrade from any version of miniCM below 2.1.X you need an unlocked bootloader, and to flash nAa's kernel !
all is explain in the first lines of this post





6/ how can I activate overclock or undervolt ?
Open CMsettings/performances/CPUsettings/ then tick overclock OR undervolt, undervolt is automatically activated with overclock.
Remember not to tick “set on boot” option if you’re trying frequenies upper than 710 that could make your phone unstable or being damaged.
for miniCM7 2.0.6 you also need to flash the module hotfix to see overclock/undervolt working
no need to install that for 2.0.7, see Q 16/

for nAa07+ and miniCM7-2.1.6+, Open CMsettings/performances/CPUsettings/,
Remember not to tick “set on boot” option if you’re trying frequenies upper than 710 that could make your phone unstable or being damaged.
Since OC is now embedded in kernel, no module to enable (so OC option disappeared!), if you want to OC only, just choose the freq, if you want to undervolt too, tick undervolt option !



7/ i'm actually using Xrecovery can i install miniCM7 directly ?
no, you can't, you first need to install clockworkmod recovery from the link given in the first post (put in on the root of your sd card, then reboot to recovery, "install custom zip", reboot : cwm recovery is now installed, you can flash this ROM )




8/ i can't download some apps from the market
download 'market enabler' and select T-mobile Usa as fake provider, then retry to search and download them. that should work





9/ random problems that are unknown for anyody?
  • reflash the rom, i.e. reinstall the rom zip trough recovery
    &/or
  • first backup, then do a factory reset, or restart from the beginning, it could solve lots of problem (you will loose ALL your data that are on phone memory (sms/mms, contacts, calendar...) if you're sync to a google account, your contacts and calendar should be preserved)
  • you may have to perform this to avoid performance issue : here



10/ i own a X10miniPRO (u20i) does this ROM suites to this phone?
NO,No, and No this ROM is ONLY for X10mini (e10i/e10a) not for any other phone [a version is also available for X8, in the X8 section.]
edit : there is a version for minPRO available here so the ROM suites to X10mini, X8 and X10miniPRO in their respective version





11/ my battery is draining so fast ... what should i do ?
first calibrate your battery by fully charging your phone, then reboot into recovery, select Advanced/Wipe Battery Stats and then unplug and reboot
if there's no improvement so far
- see if there's app running always in the background
- look in CyanogenMod settings/Interface/LED notifications/Advanced make sure radom is not ticked





12/ i have installed minicm7 when i power on the phone it stuck on cyanogen 7 logo. what should i do.
does your phone comply to the conditions of the first post ?
if yes and if you can access to CWMrecovery, then reflash the rom and/or factory reset (you will loose ALL your data that are on phone memory (sms/mms, contacts, calendar...) if you're sync to a google account, your contacts and calendar should be preserved)

if not or if you can't access to CWM use Sony Ericsson Update Service to recover your phone as if it was out of the box (you will loose ALL your data that are on phone memory (sms/mms, contacts, calendar...) if you're sync to a google account, your contacts and calendar should be preserved)





13/ in the default input method, when i scroll down/up the "-,?,!,@,_ ..." & emoticons menu until it stops itself, the keyboard remains froozen
rotate your screen and this will be fixed, and don't scroll this violently





14/ app2SD and other features aren't working with 2.0.6, why is that?
for miniCM7 2.0.6 you also need to flash the module hotfix to see all the modules working (oc; uv; app2sd...)





15/

you may first need to choose speaker, and then handfree to route radio correctly (may happen each tile the radio is started...)





16/ i want to install 2.0.7, do I have to install hotfix from 2.0.6?
no you don't : each hotfix is specific of each version
"module hotfix" was for 2.0.6 not 2.0.7





17/ where are market, gmail and other google apps ????
you seem not have read carefully the first post : you need to flash gapps via CWM after flashing the ROM in order to use google services!

there is an app2sd storing to FAT feature.
so you don't need any ext partition
but if you have an ext partition on your SD, then it should be used automatically.

I was looking for two different things: Getting the Sony Ericsson menu to the market, and enabling the Road Sync app that's free for SonyEricsson X10 mini users

To enable the SonyEricsson market, you need to edit the /system/build.prop file. Please be careful when you edit the file. If you mess up the file, you might get a phone that you can't boot (this can be fixed, cause i messed up a couple fo times I explain this later).

You can either just change the keys, or do like below: comment the old values with a # as the first char on the row, and write the new below.
Code:
Select Code
#ro.com.google.clientidbase=android-google
ro.com.google.clientidbase=android-sonyericsson
ro.com.google.clientidbase.yt=android-sonyericsson
ro.com.google.clientidbase.am=android-sonyericsson
ro.com.google.clientidbase.vs=android-sonyericsson
ro.com.google.clientidbase.gmm=android-sonyericsson
For enabling the RoadSync app (or i guess any other app that want's to verify that it's running on a real SE-phone), then do these changes:

Code:
Select Code
#ro.product.model=X10mini
#ro.product.brand=SE
#ro.product.name=robyn
#ro.product.device=robyn
#ro.product.board=robyn
ro.product.model=E10i
ro.product.brand=SEMC
ro.product.name=E10i_1237-0392
ro.product.device=SonyEricssonE10i
ro.product.board=delta

#ro.product.manufacturer=SE
ro.product.manufacturer=Sony Ericsson
As I mentioned earlier, i messed up the /system/build.prop file at one point. To get this fixed, i just rebootet into recoverymode, and mounted /system. After this i could use adb (found in the android-sdk) to copy back an corrected build.prop (./adb push build.prop /system/build.prop)

I had also an other issue with the android-market app. It crashed and got stuck a couple of times, so i fixed this by uninstalling the recent update from manage applications->All->Market.

I hope my changes don't break anything for the CM7, so please if you know that CM7 needs any of these keys i changed in build.prop, then please inform me




20/ i can't pull off the notification menu by pressing the bottom of the screen after opening notifications... only for 2.0.7 and previous builds!
it is somewhat hard to close notifications like this (sometime easy sometimes not.) just press back button and all would be fine






regarding 2.1.0+ and custom kernel :


my phone is laggy with 2.1.0 and crashes when screen goes off

it seems that on some phones, lockscreen is related to phone crash:
waiting for a fix,DustArma found a workaround :
Quote:

Go to Menu > Settings > CM Settings > Tablet tweaks > Disable lockscreen.

Now it won't freeze, but of course you won't have a lockscreen, that could be fixed by downloading a custom lockscreen from market though
Quote:

---> reported to work. the phone won't freeze anymore, nor need reboots



BETTER WAY : flash miniCM7-2.1.1 that seems to fix the lock screen problem with carrier.

That way, if you really want to apply YES it will be because you really want.... :P




22/ on 2.1.0 & 2.1.1 nAa kernel 02&03, at boot i don't have sony ericsson logo but a blue distorted image instead, is this normal?

After unlock the bootloader, when the phone startup show a worng image with blue lines before show the boot animation.

yes it is normal, this is a kernel bug, don't worry about that it has been fixed since nAa_kernel 04
when you see that thing it's time to press back button if you want to access recovery




23/ offline charging doesn't work, and my phone boots instead when i plug it to charge, why?

for 2.1.0, 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3,2.1.4 & 2.1.5 there is no offline charging due to kernel+cwm (not implemented yet ?), as a result, the phone boots up
fixed with nAa kernel07+miniCM7-2.1.6 !

Is there a way not to make it keeping connected when idle ?

waiting for a better answer... this one doesn't change anything since wifi hotspot and wifi are unrelated
for now there is no good answer, this issue should be fixed later



25/ where can i find themes for my mini? (theme chooser themes...)

themes that are fully compatible with our mini are called LDPI so look for LDPI themes !!
here are some themes : pedrocel85 thread
sensified theme : NTsense
sony blue
sony green
CM9 like theme : by ronaldvalles
theme reference : here

flashable theme : black HTC --> WARNING : this destroys stocktheme of CM and takes place instead !!





26/ i'have some problem for sending mms (data enabled) --> with CM7 you just CANT send mms without data enabled
in that case :
Quote:
Originally Posted by DaRk_dOg View Post
I think that this is a common issue with CM7 and not just MiniCM7 (I experienced it on my DHD too).
Here is a small workaround for now:
Before sending the mms, disable data traffic, then enable it again and then send your mms.
You have to do it every time, before an mms but it is working for me.

Regards, D_d




27/ i need to delete chargemon to boot up to the right recovery but :
Quote:
Originally Posted by arturos1996 View Post
i deleted chargemon but cwm 4.x can't mount sdcard!!!! please help!!!!!!


--> reboot normally and press back button, do not use the software way of booting to recovery
also try to reboot with the hardware combination : power+back , and then back multipress

each reboot rebuild the chargemon
so each time it fails you need to redelete it




28/ for ext issue, read that :

I added the following mknod lines to /etc/init.d/05mountsd:
#!/system/bin/sh
#
# mount ext[234] partition from sd card

mknod /dev/block/mmcblk0 b 179 0
mknod /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 b 179 1
mknod /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 b 179 2

BB="logwrapper busybox";

and it is working now

this is a small guide:

download android sdk
download the fixed script and unzip it then copy it into the sdcard
launch a command line and To start the SDK Manager, please execute the program "tools/android"

./android

from the graphic menu install the platform tools
after the installal,go in the platform-tool directory and give theese commands

./adb remount
./adb shell

cp /sdcard 05mountsd /etc/init.d/05mountsd

then reboot the phone
now all apps in sd-ext partition are back!
here is the file >> direct link
here is the flashable zip (EASY INSTALL)
original fix
go there to thank them :

29/ strange output while unlocking bootloader?

read this (may help you )





30/ after unlocking the BL, my no more recognize the SIM card... What should i do?

31/ CM native Screenshot doesnt work what can i do?
reboot once or twice

then Reboot and voila working again




32/ about miniCM7-2.1.2+ :
Quote:

cm settings>interface>status bar tweaks>battery style? option "status bar".




33/ how to edit/delete stuff in /system using rootexplorer?
in the top of rootexplorer there is a button (mount r/w)
touch it, then it will say the /system is mounted as read/write and the button becomes (mount r/o) or something like that
you now can edit the files




34/ if you disabled the bootanimation, the first boot after applying update will seem to be VERY VERY VERY long with a black screen. don't be afraid
for 2.1.6+, when bootanimation is disabled, the kernel bootlogo is displayed instead, after a purple led blinking once



35/ can i apply update 2.1.3 without flashing nAa kernel05 ?
you shouldn't try, 2.1.3 is dependent to kernel05 !



36/ how do i enable USB tether?
settings > wireless and network > network sharing



37/ i've got an issue with SDcard : i can't install the rom since CWMrecovery says that sdcard cannot be mounted !
download sdcard formatter from here and format the sd
then copy/paste update and CWMrecovery should mount sd and install update successfully
(thx to r95)

(with no optimization add-on, all animations enabled, dithering, many apps installed and so on : this is not the optimal config for benchmarks...)

___________________________________

you want to switch quickly between a battery saving mode and performance??
here is a somewhat simple solution >>>> CPU/governor easy and quick switching
it allows you to switch min/max CPUclock, CPU governor and enabling disabling undervolt just by pressing one widget
___________________________________


supercharger optimization that can be usefull :

before updating to newer miniCM,
  • unsupercharge,
  • delete supercharger backups and
  • update to the new miniCM,
  • then resupercharge if you want
if you don't do that, you may experience some tricky problems if unsupercharging newer miniCM !

if you didn't, ofc don't complain about performance problem



SuperCharger v6 update9-RC1 ONLY for SuperCharger v6 update9 6.2.2 see the middle/end of this post!





first optimization:


  • 1 Download SCRIPT MANAGER FROM MARKET
  • 2 Go to this thread and download SuPERCHARGER SCRIPT 6 update9-RC1
  • 3 Open program, load the script, Tick option run as ROOT.
  • in program dialog, type "1(fast)" and "enter"
  • 4 answer properly to asked questions by the script !!
  • 5 In main Dialog, type "4" "super UL (aggressive)" and "enter"
  • 6 type 30 (exit) and then "enter" -->at the top you see: running becoming exit code0
  • 7 press "close" (it was "kill" while the script was running)
  • 8 reboot
  • 9 now your phone uses supercharger, you don't need to run it again




another one that seems to be better for our phone (since miniCM7-2.1.3) :

another opti : (i tested and approve this to be somewhat working )

I confess that I never had my phone as fast and as stable at the moment!
Back to share more news ...
  • 1 Download SCRIPT MANAGER FROM MARKET
  • 2 Go to this thread and download SuPERCHARGER SCRIPT 6 update9
  • 3 Open program, load the script, Tick option run as ROOT.
  • 4 in program dialog, type "1(fast)" and "enter"
  • 5 In main Dialog, type "13" "OOM grouping fixes + bullet proof launcher" and "enter"
  • 6 type 30 (exit) and then "enter" -->at the top you see: running becoming exit code0
  • 7 press "close" (it was "kill" while the script was running)
  • 8 reboot
  • 9 now your phone uses supercharger, you don't need to run it again
then settings > CMsettings > performance > compcache > 18% ; reboot


do NOT use the two at the same time, i recommend the second for better results (at least it is better on my phone)



if you want to undo theses opti :
  • 1 run the script
  • 2 choose 1 (fast)
  • 3 choose 15 (UnSuperCharger)
  • 5 wait
  • 6 type 30 (exit) and then "enter" -->at the top you see: running becoming exit code0
  • 7 press "close" (it was "kill" while the script was running)
  • 8 reboot
  • 9 now your phone uses no more supercharger.




of course, if you have any comment about the tweaks, better tweaks or anything else (e.g comments about the way of introducing the process...), please tell me

third opti that yo may want to try :

from which rom did you upgrade ?
I don't really understand why do you use link2sd since this feature is embedded in the rom ...
you should better delete the content of the ext partition and use gb app2sd feature :)

if you have problem with any widget button try a similar solving way




39/ if you have any problem with flashing using flashtool, theses posts may help you :

40/ why do i have an annoying pop up asking for unlock key when i boot up my phone?

When users updates their phone with the operator passed ROM they can be ''seen'' by the operator what type of phone with what type ot Android they are use and can send them auto setings like the APN MMS and etc.

If you want see the truelles of this just call your operator and ask them for auto APN . Try it if you have x10 mini with stock rom and with x10 mini with this one
In firs one operator say you : Ok i see in system you are using x10 mini vith android 2.1 i will send you the setings . But with this room she/he ask you what type of phone do you use bicoz I cant see it on system.
This is same wit the automated operator menus too : when you pres 4 (for example ) in voice menu and ask for a auto internet setings the autovoice say sorry we not support you phone yet will try again later.
This is not big deal for now bicoz the most of operators APN is already configuret but if you use operator who is not includet you cant use mobile data bicoz you not have APNs.

That is wy this code is asking for when you put some of providers sim some of them make theirs system in that way ... its more easy for them but for us is just annoing popup window
>>> thk him for this please




41/ how can i disable the network lock dialog after pin input? (miniCM7-2.1.5)
to disable the network lock dialog after pin input, add this line at the end of your build.prop (/system/build.prop)
Code:
Select Code
ro.telephony.ril_skip_locked=true
then reboot
to re-enable change the value to "false", or delete the line
how to : use rootexplorer,
go to the right place,
then long press on the file,
choose "open in text editor" in the scrolling menu

and add the line at the end of the file

Go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi Settings and press the menu button.
Choose 'Advanced' and in the 'Regulatory domain' option, change the number of channels from 11 to 14.





44/ you feel wrong with autobrightness ?

maybe this can help you (i did not try, i prefer not to but instead of flashing blindly, open it and see what has changed )

edit your /system/build.prop and add

I added that line above ro.com.google.locationfeatures=1
- reboot after editing and maybe
- delete app data of maps

Here is the link of the thread i found it:

Now my data start inmediatly and the conection is stable again.
Ps: it may not work for all, because my 3g works on other freq bands.

White Led Of Death is meant to help to see from where comes the bug (i.e. if it comes from kernel : white led!)


some more precisions about the LED : here !




48/ concerning wifi, if it stops working at all, first try to delete wpa_supplicant.conf in data/misc/wifi or read Qs 24, 37b and 43


49/
Dualtouch:

If you want to enable the fake DT by dx (instead of andrej456's which is the default), you have to insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
insmod /system/lib/modules/synaptics_i2c_rmi4_dt.ko
If you want to remove the fake DT altogether, insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
insmod /system/lib/modules/synaptics_i2c_rmi4_no_dt.ko

Swap is useful if you need to run memory-hungry apps or wanna have more apps loaded in memory.

Any size for swap should be good depending on your needs (e.g. 128MB). To verify a2sd is loaded, run df via adb shell. It should show /data/app and /data/app-private mounted in /sd-ext.
Also /data/dalvik-cache should be mounted to /sd-ext/dalvik-cache if DC2SD is chosen.
To verify swap is used, try the command 'free' via adb shell.

None of the above are for the everyday/novice users. You have to know what you are doing.


51/ A2SD, WTF? (bis)

What is a2sd?

It's other metod to save applications in SD.

How prepare your SD?
In Windows: Use http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-...n-manager.html or other tool partition. Create a ext4 partition in your SD.
In Ubuntu: Use gparted for create ext4 partition

How activate? (thanks to ferotakis)
1. Format SD and partiton it with CWM on phone make yor ext part and swap if yo want swap ig not live it 0
2. Install minicm7
3. Go to CM seting under performance put the a2sd (first show none till reboot)
4. Go to CM then hit apps and tick the "allow app moving to external "
5. Open terminal and type free
6. Go to CM again then performance again then to a2sd and chek there must no say NONE and must be a2sd
7. Install some apps then rootexplorer and browse in root dir on your phone you will saw ext folder open it and look your apps will be there
8. Thanks again if you missed to NAa

but if you create an ext partition, it should be recognized by GB native app2sd... and you will be able to only mount fat part of your sd .. no?
