Default [Q&A] [ROM] CyanogenMod 9 [CM9]

There appears to be no Q&A thread for CM9 currently. I know generally the person who made/ported the ROM would start it, but doesn't appear that that's high on Entropy's priority list. Anyway, there are a lot of CM9 threads wasting space on Infuse Q&A section, so here's this.

Ask any questions about CM9 for the Samsung Infuse 4g here.

It's my first real thread so don't get mad if something isn't right, tell me how to fix it.

Q: I get weird rainbows in recovery and when my device boots? What gives?
A: This is what happens when a Gingerbread or ICS kernel is booted on a device with Froyo bootloaders. You will need to either live with the rainbows (recovery is at least partially usable with the rainbows now) or flash Gingerbread bootloaders. Stay tuned for more info on bootloader flashing.

Unfortunately, the classic "rainbow fix" we used for Gingerbread is not compatible with how video acceleration is set up in ICS. The rainbowfix will just cause the device to crash immediately on boot. (I think this is why jt was not successful with LinuxBozo's CM7 source.)

Q: I'm getting rainbows, how do I flash Gingerbread bootloaders?
Flash the bootloaders from the file attached to this post using Heimdall as follows:

heimdall flash --primary-boot boot.bin --secondary-boot Sbl.bin


DO NOT do this unless you are experiencing rainbows, and DO NOT do this until you have confirmed you can flash less dangerous stuff (like kernels) with Heimdall. If the flash fails you will hardbrick!

Thanks to LinuxBozo for confirming, way back in the days of UCKJ2, that Heimdall can safely flash bootloaders from leaks. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4#post18539754 - Be warned, once you do this step there is no going back. For whatever reason the Infuse won't flash dumped bootloaders, so there is no known way to return to Froyo and Rogers Gingerbread bootloaders.

It's sadly true that 50% of questions asked are in the FAQ.

Is there anyway to boost the system volume on this build? Would it be in system folder?

Isn't there some app called voodoo louder (free)? or you could even pay for Voodoo Sound Plus, I did that and it's great.

Edit: yes I found it https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...o.louder&hl=en it says paid but it's free. See if that works.

I am referering to system sounds such as key press and lock screen sounds

Hey guys I got a infuse yesterday from a friend and its running Entropy CM9 I have some questions regarding it I would be really great ful if someone can help me.

Its running entropy cm9 and I am sure the previous owner did not flashed the GB BL on it as it does have the rainbow screen in recovery but the rom works fine on it without the BL.... am I good without them (bl)?

Can I flash it with GTG ultimate to go back to stock ?

Can I flash any other rom over this through the blue recovery ?

Try a different computer, a few of my computers won't install the drivers correctly and it never lets it connect to odin.
