Hey folks,

This is a completely new build, with all the new changes baked in. We wanted to do a semi-official test release to collect bugs and hopefully do a formal official release with everything settled. The main pain point is the CSV files (see pre-install prep).

So a brief overview:
  • New acoustic routing code baked in. Should fix most if not all audio routing problems, and will provide more debugging if stuff does go wrong. Also allows for more granular tweaking, see the CSV files.
  • GPS fixes for GB - GPS not only works in GB now, but it doesn't kill sleep! I was able to use GPS, get a solid lock, and put the device to sleep no problem.
  • BT should work & well with the new acoustic code. Post results.
  • RHOD users now have a choice of kernels. .35+ all have the new acoustic - so .35, .39, 3.0 and 3.1 are all fair game now... This is bundled with .27!!
  • Keep in mind, autobuild .27 kernels will produce no audio in this build... Obviously the bundled kernel will work, and the absolute newest .27 autobuild kernel does work now - Feb.27 2012 or newer.
  • rootfs tweaks - first, it will detect which kernel you're on (.27 or .35+) and automatically apply the correct firmware. Second, is it will always copy/extract the modules... failures there were getting annoying, and this is surefire if brute-force...
  • Few Easter egg apk's...
  • Probably a lot I'm forgetting, this might change

Pre-Install Prep REQUIRED!!!

This step is crucial, and I forgot all about it! You must copy all of the *.CSV file from your WinMo ROM - these are in the \Windows\ directory. There's a very easy way to do this. It involves the Total Commander app for WinMo (Direct Link for the perpetually lazy...) (included in EnergyROM and others probably).

Now you're in Total Commander looking at your \Windows\ directory. Whew... lots of files. Fear not! Hit the "CTRL" button, then the green "Plus" button. This opens the Select/Unselect files dialog. Put in *.csv, press "select" and voila. All CSV files are selected. Now - File -> Copy/Move -> I want you to copy these (should be 10) files to the ROOT of your SD card. No folders!!! This is hardset right now, until we get it all implemented into the build properly. Thanks!

Install

Assuming you've done the pre-install prep; this is installed just like the other XDAndroid builds - grab your startup.txt (don't forget rel_path= if you don't have it at the root of the SD!), ts-calibration and boot!

Caveats:
  • Audio stutters every 10sec. The only fix I've heard is using a kernel from G3rmo (unfortunately it is old), or
    Code:
    su
    kill -9 28
    Which kills the [battery] process. I'm sure this will have negative effects on the battery meter/battery life...
  • SD Card not working...? "Waiting for SD Card" appearing on boot...? Try putting this command in your startup.txt
    Code:
    msmsdcc_1bit msmsdcc_fmax=14000000 msmsdcc_nopwrsave
    See gummbah30's post reminding us of these commands.
  • SD Card has partitions? (If you used a non-XDAndroid build the answer is YES) Then you need to add "no_partitions" to your startup.txt. Between the quotes on the set cmdline line. Do not put it on its own line, it goes in between the quotes! Make sure there is one space between each item.
  • BT might still be flaky
  • The CSV files from my BLAC100 are attached for the lazy. I'd like to gather CSV's from each RHOD, I'm curious if any ROM devs have changed them out either... This could get interesting. If you folks don't mind, post up your CSV's, point out differences with mine, etc... We're trying to figure out how to unify these, if possible! Thanks!
  • Keyboard tiny/unusable? Either change the IME (long press on the input box) Get rid of it! I've heard "Hackers Keyboard" is a good alternative - many options. There's also "Better Keyboard", Swype, etc... Side load the APK using AndroidApps, adb install, etc.
Please post back any issues, enjoy!

  • Acoustic: Bug-fix : correct random loss of dual(rear)-mic.

Interesting, does any sound work...? Does it play thru the earpiece instead of the rear speaker? What about previewing ringtones? Next time you pull a logcat, make sure to use -v time. Using GetLogs makes it much easier .

Thanks for testing btw. The more the merrier! If we're going to make this change global, we want to make sure no devices are left in the dust. So it's up to you guys to test and ensure that it works properly! If it doesn't, we'll try to fix it.

If anyone feels like hopping on #xdandroid on freenode while testing, that would be great! Thanks again!

i attached the file i found on sd card after pulling the logs with getlogs. i hope this is the file you wanted.
i just added following commands to my startup, because i cant boot without them:
msmsdcc_1bit msmsdcc_fmax=14000000 msmsdcc_nopwrsave

Those commands are necessary if you have a SD card that doesn't play nicely. If you need 'em, put 'em in.

Thanks for the logs, I'll pass them on. Anything you can say about 'em? What happened during the logs...? Please be as specific as possible. The more information, the better.

Bump...

I made a mistake. Messed up bad folks! I forgot an extremely crucial step... See the first post! Pre-install Prep .

am20033 already has given pretty good feedback, once having done this step. So send it through the ringer guys, c'mon!

Good deal! Some headsets seem to work better than others - we'll have to work on that once everything has settled. Glad everything else is working well!

As for there only being 5 CSV's, that might be true for Blackstone. What WinMo ROM are you on...? Perhaps some other users can verify. On my RHOD running EnergyROM there's definitely 10 CSV files in \Windows\. I might ask everyone post theirs so we can detect any differences - so if anyone would like to post all the CSV's they have in a zip file here that would be great!
