first of all thank focus.lau

http://bbs.189store.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=15563&page=1&extra=#pid511942

this will start off using his version. eventually i will get source downloaded(hopefully today), and ill begin getting all the bugs worked out.

this version was provided by focus.lau, i modified it to make it semi usable. 99% of the credit to this point is all focus.lau! i simply fixed a few issues preventing boot up using stateside photons. it can be modified in the same way miui was by adding parts from this and that and getting alittle more function.

my plans are to get cm9 source downloaded and find time to bang out all the necessaries to get cm9 fully working. its going to be a long road but we gots the cm9 before 2012!


currently uploading/fixing data/phone

Joker, you are da man!

First to download my attachment. vold.fstab.apk (2.29 KB, Downloads: 42) If there is no ADB tool, prior to your mother and then download a good degree, and then placed in c: \ windows \ system32 under.

After downloading, remove the. Apk suffix.


WIN + R and enter cmd into the command line, execute the following command sequence:

adb push vold.fstab (if not the same level directory, please fill out the complete path, such as c: \ vold.fstab) / mnt / emmc / / push the file you downloaded to the root directory emmc

adb shell / / entering the shell
su / / get root privileges
mount-o remount, rw-t yaffs2 / dev/block/mtdblock3 / system / / mount the file system as read-write

cp / mnt / emmc / vold.fstab / system / etc / / / replace the previous file
exit
exit
adb reboot / / restart

This last statement, the phone automatically restart after you can get.
If you do not know the meaning of the above command a one executive put it. / / .. This is a comment. Meaning to tell you. Command is above the red part! !

this concerns me... for someone who compiled cm9 how does he think we have yaffs anywhere on this phone? or mtd partitions? this is an emmc device.. :/


and this rather spoils the fun :O i have had cm9 source down :p

as i said i liked being lazy but i havent been ;)

    Okay due to the recent changes in cm9 install process I am writing a short guide from my phone. A longer version is planned and will be posted on my site.

    If you wipe system you must flash the rom twice. Anyone that has followed long enough remembers the double flashing days till I fixed it. Well its back.

    So to update from any cm9 rom with wipe

    Factory reset
    Flash rom
    Flash gapps
    Simple.

    To update from any cm9 without wiping.

    Flash rom
    Flash gapps
    Simpler.

    To update from cm7, miui, gingerbread, etc

    Wipe system
    Factory reset
    Flash rom
    Flash rom again(notice it takes longer)
    Flash gapps
    Profit

    What about dalvik cache?
    Well it sits on data and is checked every boot. If it detects a change it will erase the old cache and rebuild. So if you do a factory reset you erase dalvik cache. If you upgrade versions without a wipe it magically erases dalvik for you.

    What about data or cache?
    Factory reset wipes data, cache, and apks installed on any sdcards.

    Why should I only wipe system if coming from a non-cm9 based rom?
    Cm9 has install scripts that copy certain noncm parts from system, installs then puts it back. If nothing is there it can't copy. Thus flashing twice.

    When do I flash gapps?
    Every single time.

    My battery sucks?
    Cm9 handles a lot more open apps then gingerbread. Multitasking is spectacular with ics. However running 70+ apps at once turns your phone into my ex and literally sucks the life out of your battery. This explains why there is such a drastic difference between battery life's with different users. Also keep in mind that we are using a froyo kernel, drivers from 3 different devices and none are ics tegra ap20 based, and this is still beta.


    So why do people get an attitude with me?
    Because you don't search or read. I purposely don't hold peoples hand. You must read at least some. There is always a risk with flashing anything custom. The more I baby people the dumber the questions get, however once stable I'll dumb it down to anyones level and tweak it to death. Currently I'm only going for a fully functional cm9. Then comes the fun

    Look this isn't a stable rom. Its not completed. Currently I'm trying to get sw encoding going for the camcorder. Right now that is causing the camera to run sluggish. Oc and you'll be fine in landscape. Camera does work. You people do realize we have no ics kernel or drivers? The fact that it works at all is pretty good considering how many devices out there don't have ics at all much less have camera.

    When I get time I'll make some revert flashables for people that don't like new test builds. I don't want 500000000 posts of flash this revert to get cm9 working. If you need what that revert has fine just don't direct everyone to only do it your way.

    This is a beta development project. I will be experimenting and breaking perfectly good stuff to find better setups. By the time I'm done cm9 will be close to perfect.
