Default CM7 on Motorola Charm MB502 from Ruth Development

Hi to all,

I know that our great developers are creating a CM7 rom for Motorola Flipout MB511, this rom is working now in a unstable state, my question is if this source can be used to develop a rom for Motorola Charm MB502 considering that both devices contain the same hardware.

Can anybody tell me if changing all references words "ruth" or "MB511" to "charm" or "MB502" on source code, is all I need to build a rom for Motorola Charm.

The rom source has been posted by phchshow and this is the link of the git source:

https://github.com/phchshow/android_..._motorola_ruth


Thanks a lot for any answer!



Now we know that phchshow rom, works for Motorola Charm (BASIL) MB502, We need someone who has a development evironment to build it directly for motorola Charm with the native drivers I mean RIL, AUDIO, etc to reduce bugs.

I don't know that the Charm even exists

But if it is exact the same Device, it should work on it.
I dont know much about compiling stuff, maybe you could PM the MB511 CM7 dev for information.

Yeah yeah, of course i saw it. But almost everything in this Forum is for MB511. However, if its the Same device (Like SEMC Arc "anzu" and Arc S "ayame") it COULD work. But First you need to get bootstrapped recovery to work on charm, you maybe could Flash the MB511 Rom. (At your own Risk, of course ^^)
Else, good luck at building it for charm.

Report to me if it worked, so i can add it to my How-To Thread

Well.. I took the risk :

I've been installed, the CM7 ruth rom, from the phchshow compiled V 0.6.2 on the Motorola Charm MB502 without make changes,...... and works!

But, some bugs:

1. No Network Recognize: I can't call, sim is recognized but returns "No Network coverage".
2. Screen only shows in portrait mode and sensors doesn't function to adjust the display mode.
3. Keyboard not function properly, numbers and symbols not corresponding to the physical keyboard layout.
4. Android key board not function.
5 Audio files are no working.



I wonder if this bugs are in MB511 or just in this model (MB502)?.

I cannot say something about 1., cuz i dont use a SIM card on my device anymore (Switched to Xperia Arc S "ayame")
2. CORRECTION: Screen is working fine on ruth (MB511), but it gets wrong orientation if you flip out the Keyboard!
3. Keyboard is usable on MB511, but it is qwerty, i have a qwertz one.
4. Working on MB511
5. Ringtones and Notification Tones are working, didn't test with Music
Maybe you need to port over some device drivers from charm to the ROM

Latest screenshots from my Motorola Charm MB502 porting the CM7 v0.6.3 for Flipout:

Unfortunately still no working the following features:

- Audio Mp3 cant be played. (But can use winamp to hear all music)
- Voice on call when using normal mic input. (Must to use headset)
- Orientation only in portrait mode (Launcher can be set to landscape but all system layout will rotate to portrait mode)
- Video files not working (I think because the Mp3 error) so youtube can't reproduce videos.
- USB error when disconnect.
- Cannot move apps to SD (but can use link2sd)


I had used Holo locker, Holo launcher, and ICS theme from Theme Chooser Themes

Add step 8, because some errors, change zip file link


Hi,

For someone who wants to port cm7 on Motorola charm follow these steps (Assuming your device is rooted):

1. Download and Install FlipOutRecovery from this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1296881307

2. Download the phchshow Ruth rom from this link: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bxgq...it?usp=sharing then put it on the root of the sdcard.

3. Download my fix file "osk386FixCharm.zip" and put it on the root of sdcard (from the attachment link below).

4. Open the FlipOutRecovery app and allow permissions, then click on "Install Recovery" button, and then click on "Reboot Recovery Mode" button. The system will reboot with clockworkmod menu.

5. Wipe data, cache, and advanced/dalvik cache

6. Select "install zip from sdcard" -- "choose zip from sdcard" -- select the ruth rom --- yes --- and wait until instalation finish.

7. Reboot then boot with recovery, clicking "vol -" Then Wipe data, cache, and advanced/dalvik cache.

8. Select "install zip from sdcard" -- "choose zip from sdcard" -- select the osk386fixCharm.zip --- yes --- and wait until instalation finish.

9. Reboot system and enjoy CM7.




NOTE: The osk386fixCharm.zip file fix some issues like connectivity, keyboard, audio and video. The problem of mute sound during call still persist, you must to use headset to make calls well. Portrait mode problem still persist. You install this at your own risk I´m not responsible for rooted devices. The rom is on unstable(acceptable) state yet.
