Working:

-Touchscreen
-H/W Keyboard (Wrong Screen Orientation after Flip Out)
-CyanogenMod Themes (LDPI)
-Camera (Bit Buggy)
-GPS (Lock very slow)
-Bluetooth
-Root
-Multitouch (2 Points)
-Vibration
-Proximity sensor

Not Working:
-FM Radio
-Ant+
-USB Buggy

Other Stuff:
-Battery drains like hell, always charge or turn Device off!

This is a great news. Everithing is working on the device? Some issues? I'll test it tonight when i come off from work.

Thx,

Co'

USB is buggy, need to use ADB over WiFi.
Also Phone Calls are buggy acording to the Thread.
To learn more about the Bugs, check out the Thread of the Rom:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2209254

I tested it, and i think it is working pretty Bugless and Smooth (Depends on what you understand under "smooth" xD)

Hi

Thanks for the instructions. I'm going to try this out at the weekend, and wondered if I can ask a couple of questions?

0. Reflash your Flipout with RSD Lite:
does this mean flashing one of the .sbf files, and do I have to use any particular one?

Also, I'm currently on Orange in the UK. Once I've installed the ROM, will it still work, or will I need to change anything to make it work on Orange / UK?

Thanks

Yes, you should reflash a .sbf file if you have modified the System (Root for example).

Im German and dont have any clue about this Orange thing. If it is a Branding like Telekom in Germany, it will (Probaly) debrand it, but im not sure about that. You can do a NANDROID BACKUP in CWM, worked for me for restoration.

This is the best thing that's happened to this device in years. Kudos to everyone involved, now i can actually get some use out of this piece of junk :D Everything installed smoothly, and i've got the dev thread bookmarked to keep on top of updates.

Any possible port to the MB512? :p

If you mean the Motorola Flipside, maybe you could just install the Rom on your Device. But im not sure, and i dont think anyone will port this
rom to such old devices. (Suprised that someone got it working on Flipout MB511)

I know no one want's to hear that, but: Buy a new Phone.

Motorola Flipout, Charm, Flipside are Legacy/Low Activity Devices for a reason!

100% functional Formula:

if phone is = Crap/Slow/Ugly/Forcing you to Rage
then = buy=("new Phone")
else = :good:

if phone = New
then =

Hi,
I know it's an on thread, but maybe someone knows. Is there any chance to make phone calls working on CM7?

Ok, I have found a solution, and calls now working ;) Here it is what I did, for other time travellers:
Flash this using RSDLite: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B2TMVyhuQfJ-dkN5N3RhcGVtTnc&export=download
install UniversalAndroot.apk, than Bootstrap.apk. Reboot to recovery, make backup of this stock ROM.
Wipe data/factory reset, install CM7 ROM
Calls working :)
