Just curious, I will be able to flash this from a Miui V4(ICS) rom and then go back onto Miui using my nandroid backup afterwards, correct? Downloading now, flashing tomorrow.

P.S. I also got this video from I9000 forums, with JB port, you may want to think to this video as it teaches people how to flash etc.

FE, I think it's awesome that you put in so much of your time to not only maintain CM9 for us on the vibrant but to also flash and do some testing on other roms.

I wish I had the kind of time you seem to have.
To everyone working on this rom... Keep up the nice work on this rom, I look forward to seeing JB on the Vibrant since the manufacturers aren't willing to put forth the effort for us.

    Guys,
    Do not worry, I am still working on it. I have gotten WiFi, Bluetooth, and audio fixed. All that is left is GSM and then I will release an update. I am working on a source build.

    1. Internal/External Storage
    2. WiFi
    3. GSM
    4. Bluetooth
    5. Audio
    6. GPS

    Sup gents! Yeah, I still lurk around here sometimes, and have been following this thread a bit. I'm wondering if I might be able to help with the sd mounting.

    Back in the early ICZen days, when it was a Crespo port, I was manually fixing the sd mounting to show and mount both sd's. I'm downloading the alpha now so I can take a look at the services and framework-res, and see if I can help y'all out. No promises, but I'll give it that ol' college try.


    EDIT - In yours guys testing, have you also been editing the framework-res/res/xml/storage_list.xml? I notice in the alpha its only got the string for the sd, and not the one for the emmc mounting.

    EDIT 2 - I got it to boot with an edited framework-res and services.jar, but sysui and settings are fcing on me. Think I'm making progress maybe, gonna try a few more things after dinner.

    EDIT 3 - I'm trying, and still failing. Got her booting now, sysui working, but settings is still throwing an fc when I go into storage. I'm running out of time tonight, about to go pick up the gf so I have to put this down for now, I'll pick it back up when I can, and keep an eye on the progress over here.

    Thanks, do you mind uploading the framework-res and services.jar. Also, yes I was editing the storage_list.xml in framework-res.

    What I have so far isn't working, I was trying a rush job before I went to pick up my girlie, and wasn't paying that much attention to what I was trying. I don't want to upload it cause its probably way off base and confuse the issue. I'll give it a more detailed run this weekend when I get some time, and upload for you what I have at that point, working or not.

    I also tried just the services.jar they used in the i9000 build and it didn't work, I wonder if its really fixed in that rom. It would boot fine, but nothing mounted.


    Sorry for getting off topic but I had to say this.
    Brick your awesome, please help out where you can so that us people that are holding onto the vibrant can continue to show it still has life and can fight the good fight.

    I may not be over here much, but I'm still highly active in Vibrant development on another site. I love how these two year old phones can handle the newest OS's, and outperform many newer devices. Just with ICS, not including this JB, we are running a newer firmware build than the SGS3 ships with out of the box. Gotta love it, and with this many people still rocking it and building for it, Vibrant development is far from dead. I think we have more people building for the Vibe now than we did when I started in pre-EDT days.

    Sorry ali, back on topic now. :)
