I ported the latest GB Cronos from Feeyo to the 32a Magic 6.35 radio. This rom uses carz's 2.6.34 kernel.

***Feeyo and carz have put in a lot of work for us....please let them know by donating here and here.***


How to install ROM:

1. Nand backup
2. Wipe cache and dalvik (try wiping dalvik only if coming from an earlier version of GB Cronos)
3. Flash GB rom (rapidshare, multiupload)
4. Flash gapps (rapidshare, multiupload)
5. Flash carz's oc kernel (if desired - see below)
6. Flash GPS fix (if needed for your location - see below)
7. Reboot


Kernels and GPS fixes:

You can flash these files from carz from recovery with no wipe

576 MHz oc kernel: (rapidshare, multiupload)
614 MHz oc kernel: (rapidshare, multiupload)
710 MHz oc kernel: (rapidshare, multiupload) (thanks to rps13)


Fix for GPS in Asia: GPS_AS.zip (rapidshare, multiupload)
Fix for GPS in Europe: GPS_EU.zip (rapidshare, multiupload)



Update Details:

-See 2nd post


Bugs:

-Youtube HQ buggy
-Lights/leds buggy



Working:

-USB tethering (with stock setting -> tethering works with Market apps)
-Games (you may have to move some of them to internal phone memory from SD card download optimized Angry Birds here)
-Camera
-Camcorder / video recording
-Gmail
-BT
-Wifi
-GPS
-USB connect
-3G/2G
-Phone calls
-Youtube
-Facebook sync
-Ap2sd
-Google voice search
-Smooth UI
-No FCs
-Root
-Most everything
-GB screen on/off animation
..To enable On/Off animations in this build:
..1. SpareParts: Enable both and put on Normal.
..2. Menu -> Settings -> Display -> Animation = Show All.
..3. CM Extra -> Display -> Rotate 180 = enable.
..4. CM Extra -> Display -> Rotate Screen On and Off = enable.
..This should work. If not reboot.


I've included Astro File Manager and Titanium Backup to make restoring apps easier.

This rom is for the 32A Magic / Sapphire.
You need the new radio 6.35.10.18 or 6.35.16.19, SPL 1.76.2007 and recovery-RA-Magic32A-6.35-v1.6.2 or recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img or recovery-RA-sapphire-v1.7.0H.img or recovery-RA-magic+-v2.0.0.1-seo.img.
It might work on with other recovery images, but I have not tested them.
If you do not know how to change your radio, SPL and recovery, click here at Cursor's post.

*NOTE*
I am not sure how much support I will provide for this rom.
I will try to update at a minimum whenever Feeyo release updates that will port over to our phones.
If you don't know what you're doing and have a question that is not specifically related to this rom, please search google, XDA, etc. first before you ask.

I am not responsible if you brick your phone. Nand backups are your friend

Hopefully others can confirm, but the camera and camcorder video recording are working for me.

Facebook also seems to sync fine (but I don't use FB so my test was basic and I'm no expert on the FB apk).

The GB screen on/off animations were working for me, but right now they're not. I noticed from the Hero and other forums that this feature seems to be buggy for all. Here is a work around. Enable 180 degrees rotating by going into CM Extra -> Display -> Rotate 180 degrees (make sure screen off and screen on animation are selected). Reboot. Then enable all window animations by going into Settings -> Display -> Show All window animations. This seems to work most of the time.

This is my favourite 32a 6.35 AOSP / CM rom to date. It's snappy with no FC's (except if you try to navigate through the initial set up wizard on first boot too quickly - which seems normal) and no major bugs (from my testing anyway).

After you get your phone set up, reboot once to speed things up. Jit is enabled.

Battery drain so far seems the same to me as it is on other roms using carz's 2.6.34 v0.70 kernel.

Lately, I've been turning off auto-sync, 3G, GPS, BT, and wifi most of the time and I've been getting 2+ days with a single charge.

When I use those features heavily I start the day with 90-100% and end up having 25-40% remaining by the end of the day.

That's quite interesting, i was staying away from new radio roms because of camera problems, but stock new radio roms were always kinda better for me. I'll try this one, thank you!
