Default [ROM][NC] Unofficial CM9 Nightly builds - with/without OpenGL

As of 9/4 opengl is enabled on all builds (so no more double builds each night) and hardware UI acceleration is working. Thanks krylon360 for the work


In the same spirit as Samiam303 I've been building and hosting nightly builds of CM9 for the community to use. In particular I'm now building nightlies with OpenGL rendering turned on in addition to non-openGL builds (same as Samiam303). These builds are all straight sync with CM source with no additional mods. Builds are sync'd at 3am EST for non-openGL and 4am EST for openGL - they will be available to download approx 15 mins after their sync times.

So what does OpenGL rendering mean? It means we have some form of hardware acceleration for the UI and apps. It is not full hw accel and it is not hw video decoding. The couple of things you'll notice work is wallpaper scrolling in the launcher and chrome beta will mostly work to render webpages but will fc if you go into settings. Flash also somewhat works - I've found you definitely need to OC to get some flash videos to work, most still are not smooth.

The downside to it seems to vary user to user, some people report sluggish responses and some get lock ups, a few have no problems at all..

Either way, give them a try and report back. Please try to keep the thread on topic of these builds only, other mods can be flashed over, but that discussion should be in the respective thread. I'd also like to revisit keyodi's suggestion here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4#post22277804) - a few people reported good results with that change. Any more feedback?

Downloads

There's a few ways to get the builds:
1) Browse the hosted folder here: http://techerrata.com/browse/nightly_kangs/encore
2) Follow @CM_Encore on twitter for announcements of the builds as they hit the host (PLEASE NOTE: @CM_Encore IS A TWITTER BOT - don't bother tweeting at it)
3) *NEW* Use the Goo Manager app to receive notifications of new builds and download them directly on your nook. With Goo Manager you can also get incremental updates, see my post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post25441065

Latest ICS gapps can be found here http://goo-inside.me/gapps or mirrored here http://techerrata.com/browse/gapps

Updates

For the latest updates/announcements follow me on twitter, or check back here.

5/9/12: Goo Manager now comes pre-installed to make updating as easy as possible
4/28/12: Incremental updates are available for the flash-a-holics: See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post25441065
3/10/12: Due to some merges yesterday you may need to reflash gapps when going from a nightly prior to 3/9 to later than 3/9

Credit and Thanks
Thanks to fattire, dalingrin and the rest of the CM encore theme for making this possible. Thanks to fellow TeamWin members Kevank for providing the hosting and to s0up for the Goo app.

I think you mean you are ...'now building'... instead of ...'not building'... LOL

Flashed the latest opengl version and it seems a bit laggy. I'm gonna give it a while to settle in before I pass full judgement. Still awesome to see ics on the ole nook color. Thanks.

yeah, have to confirm with the lag on the 3-1-2012 build. I was using ur 2-27-2012 build before this and app drawer was much smoother. Not sure what changed upstream. But....

So you are not syncing with any of the FatTire Nook Color specific fixes?
