Oh. Do you know any bugs? What do you mean bugs with CM9, only the camera bug? Oh, nevermind the memory.

Wait, what is the difference of Cyanogenmod Performix from Cyanogenmod 7? Can someone please explain?:confused:

bugs:
- incorrect touch position on sensors keys (sometimes press on status bar when you press on sensors key)
- not work als/prox sensors.. compass and accelerometer too I guess
- rebooting when free RAM less then 100 mb (as on cm9)
- camera preview is work, but can't make photo and video
- maybe something else what I forgot :silly:

cm7 is rom as from cyanogenmod team with modification for work on ot990
cm perfomix that cm7 with various tweeks from many roms (CyanMobileX, MiniCM7, AOKP, CyanogenMod 9 - 10.1)

It's me again with my new project CyanogenMod PerfoMix (stable, faster, better battery save and new UI) based on sources of CyanogenMod 7 and mixed with some futures from AOKP,CyanogenMod 9-10.1,CyanMobile,GingerDx and something else...all descriptions you can find and read by translater from 4pda (I have no time write it again on Eng)

All builds with latest version at here CyanogenMod PerfoMix


PS. I know this thread also dead, but GB never die :D

is there any way to expand internal storage for apps? I created a second partition of 512MB on the microSD using cwm recovery, formatted it and used Link2SD to move apps to the SD but over time internal memory usage grows up to a point where the phone can no longer download updates as there is not enough space for temporary download files. Is there any way to free more space or move temporary folder for Play Store to another location?

    BOOTLOADER SUCCESSFULLY UPGRADED WITHOUT OTU!!!!!!!!! GINGERBREAD 2.3 BOOTED ON TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA

    WE HAVE A WORKING GINGERBREAD ON A TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP, ESPECIALLY qltsar, sigprof, gulyuk.s !!!!
    ***-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***

    This is how I did it, step by step. I CHECKED THESE STEPS SEVERAL TIMES BUT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT I FORGOT SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!

    IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING PLEASE DONT FOLLOW THIS MANUAL. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKED PHONES OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR OWN ACTIONS. IT WORKED FOR ME AND IT'S DONE ONLY ON TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA. ITS FUNCTIONALITY IS NOT FULLY TESTED YET, THERE COULD BE BUGS*!! YOU ARE DOING IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
    * currently known bugs: cant update preinstalled apps (gmail,search,youtube..) but this could be a google play problem

    YOU WILL ALSO LOSE YOUR WARRANTY!!!!!

    THESE STEPS WERE TESTED ON TELENOR BRANDED OT-990 WITH v53R-0 BUILD NUMBER ROM. THE PHONE WAS PREVIOUSLY UPDATED FROM v53H-0 to v53R-0 WITH OTU(ONE TOUCH UPGRADE) APPLICATION.

    BACKUP EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU PROCEED!!

    DO NOT PROCEED WITH STEPS IF ANYTHING DIFFERS FROM THIS MANUAL!!

    THESE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR WINDOWS 7, i did it on Win7 64bit

    1. You need to install Alcatel Android Manager and One Touch Upgrade from THIS LINK. Find it in Download tab. All the drivers are here.
    Also download and install Android SDK Tools. (SDK tools can be also downloaded from HERE). I have installed all these things so maybe you should too.
    2. Download PACK1 and unpack it. Put these recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img, RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk and update.zip (dont unpack this archive) files in the root of SD card (this is in your mobile device).
    3. Download PACK2 and unpack it on your computer. (WE WILL NEED THIS FOLDER IN STEP 7!!)
    4. Download PACK3 and unpack it on your computer. (WE WILL NEED THIS FOLDER IN STEP 15!!!)
    5. Shutdown the phone and then when its off enter the fastboot mode by holding the Volume Down and Power button at the same time. When you feel the vibration, release the Power button but hold the Volume Down a few seconds longer, dont let the android logo appear. Release the Volume Down button. The screen will be black, and you'll see the light from Options, Search, Back buttons of the phone.
    6. Connect your phone with usb cable.
    7. Find the folder where you unpacked the PACK2 archive from step 3. Double click on the install.bat and wait for process to finish. If everything is ok, the DOS prompt window will close and phone will reboot. He'll still be off, showing Battery charging.
    8. Disconnect the usb cable and power on the phone. When you walk through the Setup process of the phone (Language, Google account etc.) you'll have a rooted 2.2 ROM on your phone.
    9. Allow non-market applications to be installed by checking 'Unknown sources' in Settings/Applications, then go to File Manager and click on RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk to install it.
    10. When Recovery Manager is installed open it and go to Recovery tab, choose install recovery and when he shows you a recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img select it. After he is done select the Reboot into Recovery option. Phone will reboot.
    11. When phone enters a Recovery mode you will see something like this. (You are moving through the menu with Volume Up and Volume Down buttons and select with Home button.) Choose a second option apply sdcard:update.zip. Confirm this decision when he ask you to approve this action. Wait him to finish. When he is done choose reboot, i think its a first option.
    12. Have patience, booting will be slow. At this point Gingerbread should be installed and offer you to choose a language. But after that when you try to select a keyboard he will probably give an error, something like 'android.process... blah blah..' and give you a force quit option. SHUT DOWN THE PHONE!
    13. When the phone is off we are doing the step 5 again. Enter the fastboot mode!
    14. Connect the usb cable!
    15. Find the folder from step 4 where we extracted the PACK3 archive. Double click on the install.bat and wait him to finish. When it is done phone will reboot and start charging battery.
    16. Disconnect the usb cable.
    17. Power on the phone and go through the setup.

    YOU ARE DONE!


    THIS MANUAL WAS UPDATED ON 2012-04-17 PLEASE CONSIDER THIS INFORMATION IF YOU TRANSLATED IT OR POSTED ON OTHER WEB SITE. THANK YOU


    Telenor Hungary 2.2 and 2.3 ROMS, FOTA Update.zip are provided by qltsar,

    ONE MORE TIME, IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THESE THINGS ARE THEN YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT DOING THIS!!
