2012-05-18
* Works pretty much everything, it's an almost perfect daily use build.
Known bugs:
* I had to replace Cyanogen's camera app with Allwinner's because preview frame was incredibly huge and buttons couldn't be pressed.
* When you take a picture using camera the thumbnails that appears in Gallery are corrupted, but you can use an alternative (and better) app like QuickPic as workaround. You can even disable Gallery app and use MX Player as video player which works pretty fine in HW mode (you don't need any codec)
* Reboot to recovery doesn't work, it just reboots the tablet.
You can see upstream changelog here



Download link

* Androidfilehost.com



Gapps

* 2012-04-29

If you have a /system partition of 300+ MB you can flash "official" gapps from goo.im/gapps, you'll have a working Face UnLock as a bonus.



FAQ

* To manage volume from the sysbar you can install this app
* Legacy compatibility zips include stock kernel with extra modules (like bluetooth, gamepads, ecc.). It's enabled for ad-hoc and wifi direct won't work. USB Audio and DVB-T kernel modules won't work either.
* Sanei N10 users (and other with "internal sdcard" on /dev/block/nandj device) can use this version of cwm.

Thank you Christian,
I really appreciate your work. After flashing this rom to my tablet (yarvik gotab exxa 9.7 - 907c clone) everything works great. Its noticably smoother and more responsive. I must say i was surprised that my 3g modem, bluetooth dongle and wireless mouse finnally started working. Althought there is one small issue. When I use internet browser (opera, chrome doplhin - doesnt matter) system periodically freezes for few seconds and after a moment everything is smooth again. Its very annoying and it will be great if you could check it and let know what is going on.

try to change governor, maybe your device doesnt play fine with smartassV2 (try using fantasy, you can do it from performance settings without extra apps)

Default LY-F1 clone regression in 1.2

Hi Christian,

I have a "Tomtop C1315" that appears to be an LY-F1 clone (I have pics online but can't post links yet). It's an A721 revision of the motherboard, with 4 DRAM chips rather than the A710's two (it still has 512MB like the A710). I just installed 2012-06-24 with 1.2 compatibility. Issues:
  1. No touchscreen response at all.
  2. I cannot get back into recovery using the volume-power sequence. It goes straight into normal mode.
I reinstalled with 1.1 compatibility, and saw this improvement:
  1. None of the three capacitive buttons works.
  2. Same issue with entering recovery mode via volume-power sequence. (I use adb reboot recovery or the power-off soft menu.)
Otherwise, camera/wifi/auto-rotation/sound are all perfect. I diffed the 1.2 and 1.1 compatibility zips, and among the ones that are changed, only ft5x_ts.ko is loaded on my device:

Code:
shell@android:/ $ lsmod | sort

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that _ts stands for "touchscreen," so I suspect the change in that driver is responsible for the touchscreen regression in 1.2.

I have full hardware compatibility with a build called ICS-Seby_0.6.5_12.06.2012, but that one's available only in LiveSuit format, which is annoying if I want to keep my data. I'll re-flash that one and grab its touchscreen driver and see whether mixing/matching gives me better results. Anyway, hope this is helpful. I'd like to move over to your ROM because you stay pretty close to vanilla, use .zip update format, and put out new builds frequently. Thanks!

because if you take a look at the OP you'll see that it says compatibility zip 1.1.x; they're for different kernel versions, of course touchscreen won't load

to use capacitive buttons you have to use the comp zip another user posted on slatedroid, i've tried to use that module but touchscreen didnt work at all, btw it's minor since ICS has all the relevant stuff in the sysbar

I see. I misinterpreted the 1.2 series as a newer version of the 1.1 series. Thanks for the explanation!

Thanks for the hint. I found the long thread on SlateDroid where user neilgfoster posted a link to his lyf1_compatibility_1.1.0_NF.zip. I reinstalled your ROM, substituting that update for your 1.1, and I have everything working perfectly! I haven't tried entering recovery from the hard buttons, but even if that doesn't work, there are plenty of other ways to get into recovery, so I don't care. Thanks again!

UPDATE: For 7 July 2012 builds and later, you want compatibility 1.2, not 1.1. Fortunately neilgfoster has created a 1.2 version of his comp zip, too, so look for that one instead!

Default big trouble no touchscreen

Hi I think I'm in big trouble

I have Onda elite vi40 v3

I wiped the cache and dalvin and I installed first the compatibility file and the the rom.
The system boots up but the screen is unresponsive.
How can I get into recovery now?

Connect a mouse, keep power button pressed until the power menu pops up and then select reboot->recovery

Once in recovery flash the comp zip (and remember to flash it always after the rom)
