Location [ROM][CM9-Kang] h0tsauce "9" 20120817 *reborn*

h0tsauce "9"
Latest release: 9.20120817
CyanogenMod 9 + custom kernel + extras + latest fixes

This is a Kang of latest CyanogenMod 9 repo, 100% built from source, with patches applied, and a custom kernel. Patches I include are typically un-merged submissions or features that have been rejected from CM, AOSP and Codeaurora.

The builds I post are my "daily driver". I only post updates when source code changes are beneficial to our platform, add functionality, or fix usability bugs.

Sources

Cyanogenmod Github

Changes

Refer to TXT files of related build

Installation

I personally recommend using Team Win Recovery Project instead of Clockwork Recovery Mod for installing ROM's. It integrates very well with Goo Manager.

1. Download latest release from goo.im or use Goo Manager.
2. Reboot into recovery (TWRP preferred.)
3. Format Cache & Clear Dalvik.
4. Flash zip downloaded in step #1. If you're NOT coming from a CM9 based rom or upgrading, you must "Factory Reset" (format data and cache partitions 3x).
6. Install Google Apps downloaded in step #1.
7. Format Cache & Wipe Dalvik, yes... again.
8. Reboot

If things seem to be weird, repeat the steps again.

Problems / Support

I do not provide support through this forum, only release announcements. I am happy to investigate issues but they must be submitted to the github project.

Let's give this a try

OK, moving my initial impressions from second page as it answers some questions. Overall everyone's impressions appear to be great.

Also running now. I loaded it on top of Perfection rom.
Wow, the ICS unlocker has camera and unlock feature and no old-style unlocker in the other half of screen (that's fresh, though this is how it was intended to be).
Getting used to this rom.
First impressions - running smoothly.
Seems like no playstore installed so need to understand how to access playstore (trying the web though download didn't seem to start) to get titanium backup. Also trying to see how to access filesystem.
Edit - just need to load gapps from first post - seems like it's a must, not a nice to have.
Some observations - haptic feedback doesn't work on some buttons which appears random. Also no backlight on the capacitive buttons though they work fine.
Edit - found ability to enable capacitive buttons backlight in Settings -> Advanced->Sensors, though that keeps backlight on whenecer screen is active. And lockscreen customizations are impressive.
Also interestingly I noticed in terminal emulator that SD folder lacks external sd card.
Edit - connected through USB cable. Dalvik works fine, can view files in file browser. Interesting. internal sdcard is mounted in mnt/emmc while external sdcard is mnt/sdcard. Also windows recognizes to removable drives when the phone is connected but those are not accessible. Again, need to read up on basic CM9 functionality.
Overall very smooth, no FC so far.
I'm looking to see feedback from those who may be familiar with CM9 from using other phones (this is totally new to me).
Another thing (not exactly related but what can make initial setup a lot simpler) that I need to read more about is the way to get apps stored externally as done in Hybrid rom if I'm not mistaken) - that way the apps get ported to whatever rom you install. I need to understand how that works.

And yes, setting DPI to 213 enables tablet UI, as already mentioned. Now I see why capacitive buttons are not backlit. Though in tablet mode the dock disappears. Thinking of trying go launcher but not sure if trebuchet-integrated settings items will work well with that change or will become redundant.

Also as mentioned already the camera preview is messed up though rotating camera helps(fixed now).

You need to download s-note apk as that is not included. Though at this moment apk doesn't install.

Another thing to get used to is the speed indicator (H instead of 4g for instance). Also dsmitty reported that black crush is gone.

Yep, I was surprised at the size also. But then again it includes zero bloat and no google apps (which are +50 mb for just gmail, play store and talk).

** FYI: No real S-pen support yet. I was just playing around with the pen... on man is it sensitive. I can pull it about 1/4 inch off the screen and still use it.

i can probably help with that, i can look through my s-pen files from n7000 and compare the 2 *the sensitivity that is*

EDIT AFTER FLASH:

WOW everything is running great!!
No FCs no nothing data/calls/sensors work great

Only thing that is broken but its known already is s-pen
Also camera is glitchy shows wrong/inverted colors but shows up fine in gallery

Instagram might work in different dpi
Still testing


If your signature says something like "Hit the thanks button if I've helped," I automatically assume you're here for "likes" and really care about imaginary internet points.
You're on the wrong site. Don't be that person. Its ridiculous.
