Climbing Mount Impropable beta 2

DOWNLOAD: CMI_beta2.zip

Tested on U8100 but propably works on U8120 aswell. Doesn't work well on T-mobile pulse mini but may work on other U8110 phones.

Kernel
- 2.6.32.9
- Based on source for U8150
- Tweaked touchscreen driver calibration to work fine on my U8100.
- Enabled swap
- Enabled EXT3 (if I add a2sd later)
- Added swap_notify support for compcache
- Added LZO support for compcache
- No overclocking yet (will have a look at it later)

Android
- Android 2.2 based on Australian U8150 ROM
- Support for tons of languages
- HVGA hacked Market
- Updated/added several Google apps (Gmail, VoiceSearch, GestureSearch, Street view, Maps)
- root:ed
- Added busybox, nano, bash etc...

Not working
- Wifi (U8150 has a BCM chip, U8100/10/20 uses an Atheros chip, I'm working on it)
- FM Radio (no app was included and 2.1 app depends on stuff in the framework)

Compcache
See post #3

Swap
To enable swap on partition 3 or partition 2 (it will check partition 3 first and if it doesn't exist it will try partition 2)
$ su
# sdswap.sh enable

$ su
# sdswap.sh disable

Installation

1. Flash a recovery image (tested with AmonRA.)

2. Copy the .zip file to your MicroSD card and boot the phone into recovery mode (call+volume-up+power)

3. Choose "Flash zip from sdcard" and choose the zip you just copied.

4. Wipe data+cache before rebooting if it the first install of this ROM. When upgrading with future updates you propably won't need to wipe again.

Compcache

If you are using are allready using a swap partition on your SD-card, then you most likely shouldn't enable compcache. But if you do not want to partition your SD-card then compcache can be a good alternative.

Read more about how Compcache works here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Compcache

Enable compcache
In a terminal or using an adb shell type this:
$ su
# compcache.sh enable

Type free to confirm you now have 32Mb swap

Disable compcache
In a terminal or using an adb shell type this:
$ su
# compcache.sh disable

Type free to confirm you now have 0Mb swap

Advanced users
Compcache size, settings and swappiness is setup in /system/bin/compcache.sh
If you are an advanced user, you'll know how to proceed from here...

Vodafone 845 is a U8120 and I believe it should work on it.

I installed on a U8110 from Yoigo (Spain) and It worked all except the sound, which allways sound as a white noise and the wifi wasn't work either.

I had to remove the rom because of the sound. I'll try it again in the next beta.

Best Regards

simple disable d-pad
Hi kallt_kaffe,

On my u8120, i got the same crash, when i touching the d-pad. There is a package which can disable the d-pad, but its only for 2.1. Is that possible to disable d-pad, until the final solution comes? The rom would be much more usable witout this kind of crashes.

Thank you for your great work!
