Current status: CM10.1 in the works and this version will not be updated.

Got started with the project in January, I'm now ready to present you my first custom ROM (and kernel) - BLECM9!

First of all - BACKUP! This is not stable for everyday use just yet.

It also includes my own kernel, based on the latest CAF source code (ics_chocolate). The kernel gets frequent updates from CAF and me. Kernel version is 3.0.8. It's not as stable in the beginning but a better choice in the long term.

It won't include Google Apps, you need to manually install gapps package, as any other CM rom is by default.
Prequisites
  • U8800 upgraded to 2.3
  • ClockworkMod Recovery v5.5.0.4, not tested in v5.0.2.7
Instructions for Installing
  1. Download the latest version of BLECM9 (Downloads below).
  2. Copy the package to your internal/external SD card.
  3. Reboot to recovery.
  4. Flash the update package.
    Optional: Install Gapps package (Downloads below).
  5. Reboot and wait. The first boot takes around 2 minutes.
Downloads
Additional Notes
  • Report issues.
  • Changelog.
  • No, this won't work on U8800-51 or U8800Pro.
  • Atmel TS users, 0.02 will not work for you. I am establishing a new driver, to make the driver standard. Please standby as this is my top priority.
  • Everybody, send me logs if something does not work. This kernel is under heavy development. On computer with ADB set up: "adb shell dmesg > dmesg.log" and send the dmesg.log
Major Bugs
  • No Atmel TS support.
  • RIL issues (does not detect all SIMs)
  • NT35510 seems to have issues when turning on the screen (confirm?)
  • Unstable backlight on low values.
  • Wifi MAC address is 00:11:22:33:44:55
  • No Camera.
  • No Bluetooth.
  • No FM radio.
  • No audio (except ringtone/alarm)
  • Sometimes glitchy hardware acceleration.
  • No sensors.
  • More...
Credits: Huge thanks to dzo - without the proprietary blobs from him, this would've not been possible.

This is not just a work of mine, recently another developer joined the process and we are working together.

Feel free to contact me and also - contribute! Links for the source code is up on my GitHub (signature).

First of all Thank you!

First Impressions:
Touchscreen feels really responsive.
Rom feels very fast too.
Wifi is working good.

Bugs that I've found:
Screen flickering (unstable backlight)
Can't mount SDCard.
RIL isn't working on my u8800.

Overall it looks very promising!

Logs attached.

Yes, It's related to HW acceleration, causing some UI glitches.

Great! Been waiting for CM9 a long time ago too... Blefish, you should post some rules as to what we should and how to post in this thread, maybe instructions on how to post specific logs and what kind of info you need. The rest of the discussion should be posted in the general section. I would really hate for this thread to become a mess like Aurora's...

I flashed 0.02, touchscreen didn't work. Then flashed Atmel-test2, touchscreen still doesn't work. Also phone reboots randomly.
