Did everything as required. Still FC after 10 seconds. The browser consumes one core for it self and I have to use the Task Manager to kill it. I used the recovery console to wipe out everything on the phone. Any ideas?

I used this Code *2767*3855# to do factory restore and this time went to alarabiya.net but still the browser hangs after 10 seconds and I have to kill it using the Task Manager

get titanium backup, then at the bottom there is a "Problems" button. Press on that and it'll install busybox for you I believe.

I'm narrowing down the cause of browser issues now. I've enabled a couple of samsung webkit optimizations that they decided to just omit in their released code. I'm also experimenting with different compilation flags.. so far I think I've found a pretty good one and I've included it in 1.3.. If you don't zoom in and out like crazy or scroll to the top and bottom like a madman, it should be fine.

Hi there madmac.

Thanks for the rom. I tried it out. After 3 hours of constant usage, browser did not crash, however gmail crashed 90% of the time.

Anyone else has this issue?

Which Arabic sites have you watched? did you try to open alarabiya.net and use it for 10 min.?

I'm in a little hurry but just wanted to share with you the latest KE2 ROM with the arabic patch applied to it.

This ROM has the following:

1. Deodexed (based on VillainROM's deodex files. Thank you)
2. root (you'll need to install busybox from market though for Titanium Backup to work)
3. Full support for shaping in arabic texts both in Browser and out of it. This uses my latest patches with my latest webcore compilation fixes. (Browser might still have some problems after further testing)


Guide:

1. put phone in Download Mode.
2. open Odin 1.85
3. Place my file in PDA.
4. DONT CHECK ANYTHING ELSE
5. flash away.
6. factory reset



Changelog:
v1.2: May 17th 2011
Initial release
http://www.multiupload.com/GU32K5UCHM

v1.3: May 20th 2011
Added the latest compiled libwebcore.so that should hopefully minimize browser crashes. (enabled OMAP optimizations)
http://www.multiupload.com/DFE2VS0QVA


The browser in this rom should have zero crashes now.

It works 100% with skyfire. Any comments?
