Q: Why is the touch keyboard slightly off screen?
A: The screen is too small (ICS is ideally for 800x480 or bigger screens) so to not obscure too much the bottom part of the keyboard is forced off screen. You can use a third-party keyboard like Swiftkey or Swype Beta instead.
Q: The keyboard buttons are all messed up...?
A: The physical keyboard contained some special keys that were handled by special code in LG's Android framework - which is of course proprietary. Some keys like 'SYM' and '.com' and the smiley face button don't really have good mappings in the stock android code. Let me know if you have any suggestions for what those keys can do.
Q: OMFG LAG?
A: There may be an issue with media scanner lagging the whole system in cases where large music libraries are present. You can try adding a .nomedia file to your music directory to fix this.
Q: How can I help?
A: All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo
. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review
. To learn how to begin with CyanogenMod Development, you can read up on how to build CyanogenMod here
. The guide is written for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Maguro), but just replace maguro with c800 where necessary and it's the same process
Of course, equipment donations or monetary contributions are welcomed as well!
Q: How about CM10? Jelly Bean?
A: I'm unable to develop CM10 at the moment due to lack of a 64-bit build system, but even if I had one, many things would not work currently because Qualcomm have not yet released any jellybean specific code for our device (msm7x30 family). They are expected to release code in the future, so don't rule out CM10 in the future!
