Info 2 [ROM] Ice Cream Sandwich / CyanogenMod9 on HTC ChaCha.

Hello everyone,

This thread contains the developing/porting stages for the Ice Cream Sandwich / CyanogenMod9 ROM, brought to you by adlx.xda. Therefore all the credits regarding this should go to him. Thanks man for making this device better for each one of us!
Please note that the 2nd post is reserved by adlx for future use. Keep an eye out there. In the meantime I will manage the QA and provide assistance as much as possible.

NOTE: I am using the ROM on a daily basis.
2nd NOTE: This ROM is far from stable, it's still under high development by the CM team. Please report all of your findings in the thread as suggested below.
3rd NOTE: Please keep the thread clean of off-topic. Questions like "when is the next release?","When is the front camera fixed?" and so on will not be tolerated.

1. Front camera is not working
Workaround: not available.
Suggestions: none; avoid switching to front camera.
Steps to reproduce: Open camera -> Switch to front camera.

2. Volume panel switching causes a crash in Trebuchet
Workaround: none.
Suggestions: Use it once or twice maximum.
Steps to reproduce: Settings -> Sound -> Volume panel -> Change through all the settings. After each change press OK. Trebuchet will crash.

3. Key X is not working
As with the CM and SuperOSR builds, bear in mind that the keyboard it comes with might be other than for your region.
Workaround: new mappings.
Suggestions: as with the other thread, post your CID, use KeyEventDisplay to post the keycodes and it will get fixed..

4. Wi-Fi Scan button does nothing
Workaround: Wi-Fi Off - Wi-Fi On.
Steps to reproduce: Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Scan -> No results (new results).

5. Movie Studio is not working
Workaround: none
Suggestions: none

6. Wifi cannot lock on hidden hotspots
Symptom: wifi won't lock on hidden hotspot
Workaround: unhide the hotspot so the phone locks. You can hide it back after this. If you leave away from the wifi but keep the phone wifi on, it will relock once you are back
Steps to reproduce: Phone wifi off -> Hide hotspot SSID -> phone wifi on (it won't lock)

7. Sometimes mobile data seems to get off
Workaround: you have to go to mobile networks and switch it off and on again

8. No PIN code input is shown
Description: When the SIM is locked and the PIN screen is shown, entering input will not display any characters.
Workaround: None at the moment. Input is still active but it is not shown.
Suggestion: Carefully type in your PIN and continue.

9. Voice Search is not working
Description: When starting the Voice Search app, it will crash without any further explanation.
Workaround: Check this post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=171
It's proven to work, I personally performed the same thing, with one exception, I downloaded Google's Voice Search from Play Store.
Steps to reproduce: Add the Google Search widget to your screen -> Press the voice button
Please report your other findings in this thread, in a similar matter:

Summary (for example "Camera is not working")
Workaround: the exact steps for the workaround or "none"
Suggestions: personal suggestions regarding the issue. Anything could go in here, which could lead to different discussion and improvements.
Steps to reproduce: the exact steps to reproduce. I'll give you an example now. Let's say that the Trebuchet application crashes when adding more than 7 home screens. For this you must already have your phone booted, so we can skip this from the steps. The precise steps to reproduce should be the following:
Steps to reproduce: Menu soft key -> System settings -> Launcher -> Homescreen -> Homescreens -> Increase to 7 -> OK.
Another example, while booting, let's say that the phone gets stuck in bootloading animation after setting the Default screen to a number that is not available (you have 5 and you set it to 6).
Steps to reproduce: Menu soft key -> System settings -> Launcher -> Homescreen -> Default screen -> Set to 6 -> OK -> Reboot phone.

Possible bug report:
Summary: Cell radio cuts out for a few seconds when screen turns off
Workaround: Copying "libhtc_ril.so" from the last CM7 build and replacing the one from this CM9 build keeps cell connection for me
Suggestions: I tried a combination of different radios, HBOOTs, and ROMs flashing from when I had this problem, but what worked in the end, was using CM7's libhtc_ril.so
Steps to reproduce: After a clean install without any modifications, turn off the screen. You should lose cell connection for a few seconds.

This may not be a wide problem, since I asked in the other thread here, and luke.arran says he doesn't have this issue.

Same here. I tried calling my phone, and it says that it's off. This is a major problem.

Thanks, confirmed and OP'ed. As a Workaround the ril libs from the CM7 build can be used.
