Great work!




The cornerstone build is still the old CM9 (4.0.3) because it is not compatible with 4.0.4, so it doesn't have the new features

Quote:

This rom is using stock kernel.
Other kernels available in the link below

If you come from the previous CM9 rom with a custom kernel, you have to download it again through the new link because i've made some changes

close every program related to modem
run putty
click serial below port number and then change port number to one previously founded
click open
write atz and press enter, modem should answer ok
write ati and press enter, modem should give name, type, etc
write AT^U2DIAG=0 and press enter, zero cd is now disabled

Just insert the dongle and wait 2 min max and the signal bar should show up
If you have a dongle that works, tell me and i'll add it to the list

Is there a way to expand whatever you have running in a panel? Otherwise so far everything seems to be working correctly.

Does wifi work? Baseline need for me.

Nvm, of course it works. I suppose the keyboard dock problems are still there though.
