IMPORTANT: First Bootup will be slow - it runs DexOpt, A2SD, and ZipAlign


OK!
Run a Nandroid back up first (just in case)

Download, Install, Reboot
If you are really wondering what has changed in this build, look at the kernel. Where my previous ones just use CM - this one is from scratch!

Now Active Issue Tracker: WG-Build and WG-Kernel Issues: http://code.google.com/p/wgbuild/issues/list
Build Y2-2.6: AndroidSPIN
CFS with 10MB RAM Hack
CFS without RAM Hack (for 3D Gamers)
BFS with RAM Hack
BFS without RAM Hack

PS: FirstBoot will be incredibly slow because it wipes the Dalvik-Cache on FirstBoot.. sorry it was a necessary evil
Special Thanks to the best donation so far! Skynet2Mainframe gave $30 - Thank you so much
Incremental updates/changes

* Longer Default Panic Timeout in case of major temporary slowdown (helps prevent random reboot)
* 5 Ticks per CPU Check for CPU Speed versus other dev's default 1
* Latest SD Drivers from Cyanogen
WG-Kernel v1.0

  • Multiple kernels to select from

Package manager doesn't resetup permissions for the apps


For anyone having any trouble with GApps, Maps, FB etc..

Run the update, let it boot
Once it finishes, don't do anything - just reboot
Once it reboots the second time, log into your Google account and you're good!

an eternity! ZipAlign all happens during the TMo screen - took me around 15min (but completely worth it)
check the logcat, it will give you details on what's going on (you can see it never freezes or crashes)

(said in the next post, but wanted to explain why)+
Zip Align reduces the amount of RAM used during processing running for a major speed increase in dex-opt and running the apps, along with the RAM hack and a CC (or your userinit) boots speeds incredibly: http://developer.android.com/guide/d.../zipalign.html
Most developers have not used this yet, but this does for the system apps provided from the now old Google Apps
CM does not ZipAlign his apps as most dev's don't - but this is a great advancement in speed and RAM usage

you should wait - the first boot takes an eternity (sorry for that) - depending on the apps you run, ZipAlign will take a long process time
Boot will always be slow at first boot, then also slow when you install many apps
These enhancements prevent "out of RAM, removing background processes"
