Temp and vpn won't work after flashing that.

Maybe we should remove some of the old files now. What do you think BrianXP?

We should just mark them as "deprecated". I'll do some maintenance on some descriptions and stuff so it's uniform.

Also, I think it's time to edit the build instructions for Ubuntu 13.04. I'm running the beta of it now.

That's very nice of you

I started working on a gingerbread revision compile now. It looks like it compiles now, after some issues with CMStat. I'll publish a rom when I have tried it myself.

I finally got the gingerbread build through. The rom is in the download list. Please give feedback if you have any.

I tried the antutu benchmark and got 500.

If the build works OK I think I'll base future ROM's on this branch.

What changes are in the new branch? Just curious.

Most of it is translations, but I think there are some optimizations in the java runtime.

I have been trying to figure out a way to get a changelog with repo but havent figured out anything yet.

I looks like vpn is included by default now, so you wont need a separate app to do that anymore. Apart from that I havent found anything radical yet.

I have been thinking about the battery level. I am so fed up with it being all over the place, so I am thinking about just reporting a linear value based on battery voltage. When charging for short periods this will give misleading readings, but the readings are bogus anyway.

When charging it will go to 100% very fast, but it won't stop charging until the current had dropped below a certain threshold. It could also be possible to use the current to calculate how far the charging has gone during charging and report that as the level.

What do you guys think? Isn't this a better way to do it?

for charging-end detection current would be for sure a good identifier...

but as i mentioned a few times a while ago there is a sony ericsson driver for our battery chip out there from the native android device xperia x10(same battery) the kernel is not that far from our so i think it should be possible to use it...

it must be modified to match with the board file. especially power_supply struct but the detection in board file(or userspace?) is anyway buggy so maybe just use the one from driver...

so i think this would be the best solution

i wanted to do it all the time somewhen but i just have to less free time

i already spent time on it so if you do it and keep a new branch up to your progress i could maybe help you with some commits if i got the time... but for sure point you to some key locations in the kernel...

all the best

USB tethering works on ZeamDroid. I couldn't get WiFi tethering to work even on the EXT3 builds.

EDIT: Wait.... What was I saying? I never even tried WiFi tethering on the EXT3 builds. Maybe it was my Galaxy Tab 2 that I thought when I got to that part. WiFi tethering never did work on that thing until I rooted it.

Also, you can wifi-tether with GoDroid v8 EXT3 ROM. Follow the thread instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1331521
