Warning: if you rooted your phone using the blaze recovery you need to use Odin and push our custom recovery tar file located below. make sure to uncheck repartion. if you push this with the blaze recovery it could cause issue's.

ok so d4astic cooked us up a CM 10 mod unofficial and our very own CMW recovery here are the links, and we need someone who can grab this and take over because d4astic doesnt have this phone and has a nightly on the blaze, so here you go everyone. I've taken over running the builds so....
,,,let the fun begin....
One more thing make sure you push the recovery first because the blaze one won't work with this rom

WARNING: if you brick your phone its not my fault i did this and it worked out fine just so you know

Default This is NOT a rant...

These are some bugs I found so far.
1. Screen Orientation (Which OP mentioned)
2. While charging if you touch the power button It will black out and Hangs up (Pull battery and restart)
3. Camera sometimes having issues. (camera not found) but most of the time works perfect.
4. Call quality Low (Like all CM builds)

Rest everything seems to be very smooth. Google Now works without any issues.

I'm just writing this for information purpose only for those who like to use this build.

Thanks a lot to dr4stic for giving us this build.

Guys, turn off the notifications. The touchkey driver I used is the stock samsung one which doesn't have the BLN (button lights notifications) which CM is looking for. Whenever you get a message, or email, or really anything that would trigger a blinking LED, it's gonna crash the phone cuz the driver doesn't know how to handle it.

Android... yeah, I use it.

BLN was never checked at-least on my phone. But its the screen rotation issue made me rollback to Stock ICS. I know you're very busy... but if you can guide me where to look into for that issue I will. Thanks again for ur hard work.

He needs a log cat run during the screen rotation and during start up so he can see what's going on. I don't know how to do this yet I've been looking into it but don't really know where to start. Do you know how to do this

Another thing that would be nice, the output of dmesg.

Just a brief explanation of what these things are. Logcat is basically the general android system logs as it boots up and runs. The dmesg is the log specifically of kernel messages as it boots up. This often includes details on drivers and potential errors there. ADB = android debug bridge, a way to connect to android, push and pull files, get a shell on the system, etc...

Install ADB drivers: If you've installed the drivers necessary to use Odin with your phone, it should include Samsung's ADB drivers for the phone. So I don't think you need to worry about that.

Install ADB: Not great, but not horrible ADB install tutorial

As for the phone itself, ADB is automatically enabled within recovery. When the phone is booted up as, you know... a phone... you'll want to go into Settings -> Developer Options, find "Android Debugging" and make sure it's turned on. That will enable ADB on android.

Now, some sample ADB commands to make your lives easier...

Check to make sure ADB sees your device (you should do this whenever you connect your phone to your computer, just to make sure you won't run into any errors with the commands below):
Code:
adb devices
Grab the output of dmesg (two versions, see it or redirect to a file.. you pick):
Code:
adb shell dmesg

or

adb shell dmesg > C:\name-of-some-text-file.txt

Grab the output of logcat (two versions, see it or redirect to a file.. you pick):
Code:
adb logcat

or

adb logcat > C:\name-of-some-text-file.txt
* NOTE: This will continue to grab output until either the system reboots or you hit CTRL+C on your keyboard. If you're just looking for the most recent messages, let it run for a few seconds and then CTRL+C it out.


Get a Linux shell on the system:
Code:
adb shell

Restart local ADB server (sometimes necessary... if you KNOW your phone is connected and ADB stopped recognizing it):
Code:
adb kill-server

Thanks guys!
Android... yeah, I use it.

I began setting a dB up on my comp last night I have java installed and started on the SDK but I fell asleep will work on it some more today. Now I'm going to read the links you posted and see if my research went in the right direction. One thing I will tell you is I've been spoiled by windows. Setting this up has given me flashbacks to the days of DOS. Lol
Thanks for the info and the time to point us in the right direction.

Another easy way is install Droid Explorer (http://de.codeplex.com/) Power off phone when connected. then click on the logcat console button. It will open the command window and lines keep scrolling... Don't do anything till it completely boots. then Save the file (option on cmd window).

But i think the rotation issue is in the kernel so we might have to use the cmd line provided for that. U can use it in the same app.

Currently I'm back on ICS... So once I can't do it now. Today when I get some time I will re-install and run this.

It probably is in the kernel. That's why I want the output of dmesg as well.

Incidently, it seems my initial kernel patch is winning some reviews and with any luck, I'll have it in the official cm kernel fairly soon now.
