I followed the guide until the WIPE DALVIK CACHE section. Cause at that point I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. In DOS I was entering that stuff in with "#" in front. Soon as I pasted the command it would just go down to another #.
There needs to be a androidupdate for this or something.
The adb shell does work however there are a few things that have to be omitted and changed to deal with our devices specific. I always pull straight to c:\ It makes things easier to find for me
The reboot command does not work for our devices so for example here is what I did
To pull your build.prop
adb pull /system/build.prop c:\
modify your build.prop per instructions then
adb push c:\build.prop /sdcard/jit
To enable JIT:
cp -f dalvikvm /system/bin/
busybox chmod 755 /system/bin/dalvikvm
cp -f libdvm.so /system/lib/
cp -f libnativehelper.so /system/lib/
cat build.prop >/system/build.prop
chmod 644 /system/lib/libdvm.so
chmod 644 /system/lib/libnativehelper.so
chmod 666 /system/build.prop
Turn Phone back on the go into the installer where it says hold dpad center
this is where you want to clear dalvik cache
exit and you should be good to go
TIP: as a note once this gets fully booted up and settled shut down your phone and restart it again It will speed up just a little and be a little more stable atleast from my experience
The problem with an update.tar is not everyone might be using the same build since a build.prop is involved so this is something you are gonna have to do device specific what you could do is make one yourself if you know how but I also speculate that an update will not work unless it is done on a fresh install. I built this into a full polymod build last night and it does work as a new install but I did end up with a locked up phone this morning which I have found poly's builds do when they are overclocked so I may revert to misons build I might even try incubus build I made a couple little tweaks to my current build so I'll see how that goes for today.
