DONATIONS NEEDED

Quote:

ok... here's the deal..

i don't like asking for donations, because i am doing this almost for fun, and learning new stuff. but this time its really needed...
i trying to expand the linaro/sabermod builds "business".. for this, we should start to have our own website for starters, where i can publish our builds.
websites requires work, knowledge, and money above all.
the website is already a WIP, and almost complete:

http://pierun.tk/white/
http://pierun.tk/dark/

thanks @Pumpernikiell for the work he had.

it will have two versions. one white, the one i gave the link, and a dark one.

i am asking if to you all, that every day download and use the builds i compile, if all of you give just even $1/1€, it will be enough money to buy a domain, a hosting server, and maybe if theres enough donations, even a VPS...

so, please donate what you can, so this project goes forward, and keeps getting better, and better.

you can donate, using this link: DONATE

thank you all,

If you have any doubt or question, post it in the main thread, so we can help out.
You can check Officials CM 10.1 & CM 10.2 threads for support also, since the source code is the same.

Special Thanks

OFFICIAL CM INSTRUCTIONS

First time installing CyanogenMod 10.2 to your Galaxy S II, or coming from another ROM:
- Copy GApps and CM10.2 ZIPs to your internal SDCard
- Make sure you're NOT RUNNING A KERNEL WITH THE MMC-SUPERBRICK-BUG. If you're unsure, flash this ClockworkMod-Recovery using Odin/Heimdall.
- Make sure you're running a proper working ClockworkMod-Recovery
- Boot into Recovery
- Flash CM10.2 zip from internal SDCard
- Flash GApps zip from internal SDCard
- DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot)
- Reboot
- Don't restore system data using Titanium Backup!
- Restoring Apps + Data might cause problems and is not recommended, avoid it if possible!

Upgrading from earlier version of CyanogenMod 10.2:
- Copy CM10.2 ZIP to your internal SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Flash CM10.2 zip from internal SDCard

F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is the difference between these builds and the official builds?

These are unofficial builds of CyanogenMod 10.2 for the i9100.
ROM is built using the same source code (github) like the official one but with these following additions:
  • Compiled using linaro arm-eabi 4.7.4 13.09 (kernel code) & linaro arm-linux-androideabi 4.8.2 13.09 (rom code) toolchain compilers
  • May contain some custom cherry-picks. Always see changelog for details.
  • Cross-compiled using those custom toolchains results in a more smoother, faster, and battery friendly ROM

What is Toolchain?

Quote:

In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). The tools may be used in a chain, so that the output of each tool becomes the input for the next, but the term is used widely to refer to any set of linked development tools.
A simple software development toolchain consists of a compiler and linker to transform the source code into an executable program, libraries to provide interfaces to the operating system, and a debugger. A complex product such as a video game needs tools for preparing sound effects, music, textures, 3-dimensional models, and animations, and further tools for combining these resources into the finished product.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toolchain

What is SaberMod?

The term "SaberMod" is coming from:

Quote:

SaberMod is a AOSP based ROM with some extra features added in and mostly from CyanogenMod. SaberMod started out pure AOSP when android 4.2.1 launched. Originally it was pure AOSP with a few extra features I ported over from CyanogeMod and linaro optimizations. Then I rebased everything off of rasbeanjelly because I liked many features found in rasbean. Since then I've modified a lot of the code so not much of it is rasbeanjelly based anymore. But you will still find some commonly used features found in rasbeanjelly. SaberMod is not a rasbeanjelly or CM clone, or KANG. Custom kernels are included for certain devices when available. These are personal builds we make for ourselves and originally became very popular in the nexus 7 forums. Features are very rarely added, and are built to SaberMod's team members liking. Currently there are two members of SaberMod working on this project. Myself and @jarjar124 . Please understand our time is limited and we are only two people who have lives, and do not have 25-50 members like CyanogenMod to add things. And our goal is not to add a bunch of features that bloat the system of the ROM.

What is Linaro?

Quote:

Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of Linux on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 120 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including the GCC toolchain, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, graphics and multimedia interfaces.

About GCC main compiler cflags
Quote:

-O1
Optimize. Optimizing compilation takes somewhat more time, and a lot more memory for a large function. With -O, the compiler tries to reduce code size and execution time, without performing any optimizations that take a great deal of compilation time.

-O2
Optimize even more. GCC performs nearly all supported optimizations that do not involve a space-speed tradeoff. As compared to -O, this option increases both compilation time and the performance of the generated code. -O2 turns on all optimization flags specified by -O.

-O3
Optimize yet more. -O3 turns on all optimizations specified by -O2 and also turns on the -finline-functions, -funswitch-loops, -fpredictive-commoning, -fgcse-after-reload, -ftree-loop-vectorize, -ftree-slp-vectorize, -fvect-cost-model, -ftree-partial-pre and -fipa-cp-clone options.

-Os
Optimize for size. -Os enables all -O2 optimizations that do not typically increase code size. It also performs further optimizations designed to reduce code size.

i'm using gcc linaro arm compiler 13.06/4.8 201306 at almost a month... NEVER gave me problems on my builds, and seems more smooth and battery friendly than the compiler that CM Jenkins buildbot uses.

running ubuntu 13.04 x64 / kernel 3.8.0-26

regards.

Any idea why Bluetooth audio routing to Mono devices (BT Mono for example) doesn't work on CM10.1? It used to work on CM10.

The main difference between these builds and the official ones, is that these builds are compiled using the GCC Linaro 4.8 201306 toolchain. Has been stated by users (and by myself) that this results in a smoother UI, and better battery usage..

also, check these two links:

thanks for posting this, i'll use your build for the moment

but i have some questions for trying linaro on my own.
am i right, that one can follow these instructions?
https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/Android/BuildSource

i'm asking, because they say it's linaro 4.4.X while you use 4.8

following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1988315 we have to choose a specific toolchain and "use" it.
does this replace the official instruction
"Install Linaro tools

sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools"

thank you for your help =)

PS: i'm also running latest (k)ubuntu 13.04.
