Hey guys,

Does anyone know how to get a stock donut lockscreen on this ROM? I'm trying to get rid of the "slide to unlock" thing, and I liked the look of the donut lockscreen.

ezterry, Using this rom with your new kernel/radio, it totally flies! I have been chomping at the bit to replace the G1, but now I don't need to, at least not yet.

Thanks!

You can also press the menu button instead

why is Apps2SD so frickin' "essential" ?
How many frickin' programs do you need on your mobile ?
The problem is not only in number of apps but their size. The new coming apps are so damn "heavy". For example Igo My way (navigation) consumes ~15Mb on install, and after first run eats more with cache till 34Mb - one freaking app uses almost 1/3 of space. Office bundles are "hungry" too (~10Mb). These apps are essential. And I didn't talk about games, which want more.

I can only install small apps, the downloads of bigger apps get halted with the message: "download aborted - not enough free space in internal storage" (in adb logcat)

Hello,
if you need to enable swap partition you can do this:
I have 64MB swap partition on my sdcard.
to enable it i have make this.
Over the Terminal Emulator :

Code:
su
Code:
vi /system/etc/init.d/15Swapon
put this 2 lines in the file

Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
swapon /dev/block/mmcblk0p3;

Whenever I have set cache to 2 with MTD it has never worked for big downloads. I've re set it to 8 and never had a problem downloading.

Am i supposed to push a file into /system/etc/ or /system/etc/init.d/?

Well, now that I increased cache to 8, I can basically install apps up to that size. I still can't install any apps that are i.e. 12MB. Are all affected by this? How can it be fixed? Yes, I installed the market patch (don't know which problem this patch adressed though)

Yeah thats the rub about using MTD to shrink the cache partition on this rom. I think Cyanogen's rom gets around this by not using the /cache at all.

Sure.. if you don't mind bricking your phone.....
Otherwise be certain to use 1.33.2003 (ending with a THREE), unless you currently have a radio with a version STARTING with a 3 (three), in which case, 1.33.2005.

:eek:
i picked up 2005 because i have heard that it is only one that works on my phone (docomo ht-03a, 32b), and i see it is used in official mt3g ota thread.

but, it is important to use safer one for each phone, i will edit my post.

thanks. ;)

Um careful if you have a 3.x radio you *do not* want to flash 1.33.2003 .. if you flash that via recovery you will brick your phone.

VI is a Unix / linux text editing tool, and it has a bit of a learning curve.
A simpler alternative would be to use the "echo" command to create the file:
1) Start Terminal Emulator
2) Enter SU
3) Enter the following commands:
echo "#!/system/bin/sh" >> /system/etc/init.d/15Swapon
echo "swapon /dev/block/mmcblk0p3;" >> /system/etc/init.d/15Swapon
4) Done. Now you can reboot
Hope this helps!

MArket fix doesnt work :( so i cant dl anything from market ... ****ty rom

1 User: it no worky its bad
1000's of users: it works fine

(Some of the 1000s add: but I need feature foo)



Maybe ask yourself "why did market fix fail" answer you modified something since installing test2 or you don't have the needed space in cache.

At least give us details if you feel the need to comment.

Many thanks Steve, wondering if anyone can confirm this to work.

I just flashed Super D this morning for the apps2sd.

Am more than willing to come back if and when apps2sd/apps2ext is working for me correctly.

    Here is a flash image for the dream of the MT3G ASOP (T-mobile OTA) 2.2 release. Including the most recent security update!!!

    [SIZE=+2]MT3G-test3_S.zip[/SIZE]
    (MD5: efff33db482ea3b6da3b247516be6a7f .. last updated 11/21/2010)

    Please note this includes my 20101106 - 2708 ported kernel, for those requiring other kernels see addons

    Requires:

    * [Size=+2]1.33.0013d or 1.33.0013 SPLs with recommend 2.22.28.25 radio[/size]
    (32b devices only) details on this post..
    If you refuse to upgrade or can't upgrade because you have a 32a (1.2 or classic) device: you will need an alternative kernel as described in step 4.b 4.c or the phone will not boot
    Note: 2.22.27.08 will also work but is not how the ota was shipped

    * Uesrs of other SPLs can either use Danger (dream only), any sapphire SPL on the magic/sapphire/MT3G or alternatively Custom MTD I recommend "87 2" (system/cache) {as of test3 06bindcache will work if you install the parts package, thus if you use CustomMTD parts is mandatory to avoid market issues}

    To install:

    1) Wipe with 'fastboot erase system -w' (A no-wipe upgrade from test-2 will probably work)
    2) flash MT3G-test3_S.zip
    3) You will be prompted if you wish to install AmazonMP3 (answer yes/no)
    4) You will be prompted if you want to set gprsclass set to 12 (you probably wish to answer yes)
    4.b) If you have a 32a or 32a 1.2 magic install the ebi1, ebi0 kernel respectively from here: http://goo.gl/qFJO
    4.c) If you have a 32b dream/sapphire without the new 2708 spl/radio install the ebi0 kernel if your radio starts with 2.22, or the ebi1 radio if it starts with 3.22 here: http://goo.gl/qFJO
    5) Optional flash "DroidX keyboard" add-on
    6) Optional flash "parts" add-on

    Alternatively the rom is now available in RomManager; and will install the rom and correct version of the 20110222 kernel; also will allow you to choose between the components parts, droidX keyboard, and language packs.

    Whats included:

    1) su/superuser from CM6
    2) my cm6 optimized pershoot based kernel described here
    3) wifi working
    4) bluetooth working (fixed inv2)
    5) keyboard working (fixed in v2)
    6) Rom contains English/Spanish only (Other languages available as language pack addons)
    7) No sim card required (fixed with v2 market fix)

    Many additional packages included in the parts addon.

    To see information on the original Test2 release vist This Post

    What not working:

    * CM6 potential USB power issue (its not horrible on 2.6.34.7 but if you notice it reboot, or plug in a wall adapter)
    * Sound Recorder shortcut missing, this looks like a bug in the OTA not the port a workaround

    What to do if it bootloops

    Before posting that the rom will not boot; please verify the following:

    1) Check that if you don't have the newest radio SPLs *OR* don't have a 32B phone; that you install the correct kernel as mentioned in step 4b/4c in the installation instructions
    2) Please use Super Wipe immediately before installing (ie. flash super wipe; restart back to recovery; then install the rom)
    3) If you did not install it; install partsB; this will fix some date related bootloops that happens after flashing some of the radios. (after you can login and set the date correctly feel free to re-install without parts if you really don't want it)
    4) If your phone is still bootlooping; after a clean install make sure you run 'adb logcat > logcat.txt' on your computer just after rebooting into the rom. Then paste the logcat contents into pastebin copying the link to this thread.

    This may sound overkill but its the easiest way to make sure its not your error during install.


    Addons

    A|| Kernels:

    The set of kernels used with this rom can be found: http://goo.gl/qFJO
    > MT3G 1.2 (fender users) please use the EBI0 kernel
    > 32A magic users (and rogers dreams who have not updated to a 2708 radio) please use the EBI1 port
    > Dream/Sapphire users with older EBI0 radios may also use the EBI0 kernel with this rom.

    B|| Parts Add On:

    MT3G-test3-partsB_S.zip
    MD5: 58b80345db33c95a92f9be77ee67cc43 (update 12/01/2010)
    What is it you ask.. It adds support for many things on top of the base rom

    (note if you are upgrading from the original Test3-parts this is a no-wipe update)

    1) Add support for init.d scripts
    2) Add support for 'adb remount'
    3) Add support for live wallpapers (apk kanged from CM nightly 238, and odex by myself)
    4) Add busybox in a squashfs (binaries kanged form CM nightly 238; and repacked since I didn't want all of them) Note test3-partsB restores the toolbox netstat link to correctly display netstat information again.
    5) Add LWP fix (fixes various 3D) via init.rc permissions (based on firerats work) updated in test3-partsB to fix slow performance in many games.
    6) Added fix_permissions script (this one kanged from biffmod 2.1)
    7) Load ipv6 on boot
    8) apn list from CM238 nightly (new for test3)
    9) flash_image from CM238 nightly (new for test3)
    10) date verification; if year is < 2010 set the date to a more recent date (prevents initial boot boot loops for some users) added in test3-partsB
    11) And Last but not least:
    Added "Froyo Parts" apk custom menu interface to (this is my work k, thanks.. but certainty has ideas from pre-eclair apps2sd and firerats scripts):

    internal -> /sd-ext
    a. dex2sd (/data/dalvik-cache)
    b. data2sd (/data/data)
    c. apps2sd (/data/app & /data/app-private)
    d. Keep Home in Ram (thanks to raven_raven's idea) [new test3]
    e. Compcache 18MB (based of CM's script) [new test3]
    f. Restrict /dev/hw3dc most games run better with this disabled; however some work better with it enabled (no reboot required) added in test3-partsB

    Check the one or more to gain additional space; allow the app root permissions and reboot; the files will be moved accordingly.

    All options only apply on next reboot, so if you make a mistake just revert

    C|| DroidX Multi Touch Keyboard:

    A new addon for those that like the DroidX Multi Touch Keyboard.
    Thanks to RoyalKnight6190 for the biffmod port this is based on and in turn punk.kaos for the version that works on your phones

    This is odexed to save data space and WILL replace the default keyboard

    Note: The clock will be black on black unless you flash the "Simple Black Bar" theme with white clock followed by this themed status bar.

    E|| Lang Packs:

    Non-supported language starter packs
    see this post (update 12/11/2010)
    These are for test3 only and provide the options to add [fr,pl,de] or [ja,zh] or [it,ru,nb] or [cs,ko,tr] to the existing en,es rom.

    F|| Disable Menu Unlock:

    No this is not a bug fix; the Rom has a feature coded in to allow the menu key to unlock the screen as could be done on the phone before the update.

    However for those that don't like this feature here is a hacked version of the framework to disable the menu unlock, and enable the "H" notification.

    MD5 SUM: 897bf28ee97db05395935f0e29b20967

    Please note this will not work with the language packs or themes (of course a theme or custom language pack may include this functionality)

    G|| Kernel Updates:

    An update to the included 20101106 (and related 20101031) kernels can be found:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=11565574&postcount=670

    Simply flash the kernel update.zip matching your configuration

    FAQ:

    * Installing Titanium + Root Fails: You require BusyBox for Titanium to work; this can be installed via You can either install the parts package or install via titanium its self
    * I need ipv6 loaded on boot to run goggles or other app: This is included in the parts package; if you wish not to use the parts package see this trick
    * adb remount doesn't work and this rom doesn't have root.. yes 'adb remount' fails because this is a stock rom.. however NO just because that fails doesn't mean there is no root. see this post in short modify /system in recovery its safer than adb remount anyway. Also ADB remount has been added to the parts package
    * I want to revert from the DroidX keyboard to stock: re-flash test-3 followed by parts if you flashed parts. (do not wipe)

    (In short if you are having issues with advanced features try out the parts package ;) )

    Note:

    This is only a quick hack of the official MT3G rom; please don't expect me to make major changes to it (If I'm doing that I'll build from ASOP source)

    (Changes: version 2 fixes bluetooth and the keyboard + audio levels for dream + removes OTA key so it won't ask for any future updates)
    (Changes: Market-fix; applies the updated files from the OTA fix; in addition to allowing you to signon [or skip signon] without a simcard)
    (Changes: Test-3 parts improvements + security update included)

    Gingerbread Theme French, German, Polish Language Pack

    FYI all (non-themed) language packs updated also:

    Woah the Gingerbread theme is so damn awesome, but there is one problem ;) it doesn't work with the langpack, if i flash the theme after the langpack everything is english, and if i flash the langpack as last the theme isn't available :-(. Any solution?

    Here is a language pack to overly roalex's Gingerbread theme http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=9686189&postcount=1440

    YOu probably do not need to wipe if you are already running this rom, but it is wise to reflash the rom:

    [size=+2]
    1) Flash MT3G-test3_S.zip
    [size=-1]MD5: efff33db482ea3b6da3b247516be6a7f[/size]
    2) Flash MT3G-test3-partsB_S.zip
    [size=-1]MD5: 58b80345db33c95a92f9be77ee67cc43[/size]
    3) Flash OA22OTA-Gingerbread-Theme.zip
    [size=-1]MD5: 93887ac62ce5f87dcd3b1b8906720619[/size]

    [/SIZE]

    If you are not using the 2708+ kernel (or are trying a different kernel) remember to also flash the EB0/EBI1 kernel of your choice before booting.

    Thanks to roalex for making the theme (OA22OTA-Gingerbread-Theme.zip) I just applied my language pack scripts to it.

    Oh.. and note the Gingerbread Keyboard supports all the languages of this port :)

    The most stable & fastest Froyo Rom, I underestimated it, i thought it was going to be slow & lag a lot. But daamn! ezTerry, you did one hell of a job. Much appreciated!

    You can thank Google's asop code for the speed.

    The T-Mobile odexs help keep the data contained (you can do a bit better with a small as possible system and no extra apps using custom mtd, but its not realistic for everyone to set up.)

    Goggle goggles works! You just have to type in this:
    Code:
    modprobe ipv6
    in terminal and Goggles work like a charm! Maybe ezterry would like to add this little helpful piece of info to OP ;). Credits to NLJ for informing me about this way.

    Ah, there is another one. There is a way to succesfully keep launcher in memory (I don't know how long it works, but I think you have to redo it after launcher is killed). Open terminal and type:
    Code:
    $ su
    # echo ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 >> /data/local.prop
    # reboot

    Works great!
