I tried the latest build of CM7 done by the Atrix Dev Team and it is awesome. Very reliable, fully functional, etc. I figured I'd give a whirl to compiling the real ICS version to see what that was like.

CM9 build system with the appropriate Atrix Dev Team repos in place actually spit out a working ROM. There are a number of issues aside from the general preview state of CM9. I figured I would share them in case anyone else was as curious as me. Apparently, the internal atrix dev teams are well beyond these issues already, so kudos.

Probably related to CM/atrix specific stuff
- Camera and finger print sensor don't work
- Launcher crashes pretty often
- Some openGL demos don't seem to work right (or at all)
- No mounting the SD as USB storage

Probably related to the specific gapps package I used.
- Maps crashes after 3 seconds (signal 11 - native code crash)
- Maps wants to update, but it can't (sharedId conflict if you actually remove maps)
- Earth won't run (missing the earthmobile library)
- Google Voice Search bombs (signal 4 - illegal instruction - currently suspecting the native packages might have some NEON instructions that the atrix cpu doesnt support)
- Calendar will not sync for google or exchange. App loads, but the sync service is failing
- Lots of null pointer exceptions for the NFC stuff in the log.

Anyway, this is just a build of the code that's out there, nothing special done by me. It might be useful for a dev phone or something but not for use on a real day-to-day device. Obviously it doesn't have the google apps embedded in it.

Personally, I had trouble going back to CM7 afterwards, my clockwordmod backups were screwed up (bad boot.img? cross-linked files on the SD card) and I had a very hard time getting back to the good ole working state. Ultimately, I had to restore the partial backup and then reflash the CM7 image + gapps.

So, if you were curious what building a random repo on the web and installing it on your phone would do, then feel free to try and lose all of your data. There are no updates/support for this, etc. It's just a curiosity... what is the state of this stuff right now?

BTW... I am back on CM7/Atrix now which is AWESOME!!!!

Not sure how the dev team would react to this ..we do not want any bricked phones because of this ..there maybe some experimental dangerous code in there in those sources as of now ..not sure though

Hmm... figured since I spent quite awhile getting a build set up, it might be worth sharing. I am happy to take down if it is inappropriate.

Eh, I wouldn't be mad about it, but I think it needs more caution. I would just wait. As you say, it kindof screwed with a lot and wasn't very usable, so why flash it? Maybe ok for someone who wants to look at the code, but I wouldn't flash it.

Not so much take it down as change the title of the post.

the current internal atrix-dev-team cm9 is way further ahead of this, we have some different patches. this is missleqading as it makes it sound official and is not.

Could you please change the tittle to [KANG] CM9 Test Build by "your name"

and please link to the sources, as is proper practice for open source projects

thank you
