Downloading, but still some questions since I never used Slimbeam.
Works fine with latest Siyah or Dorimanx ?
Can be installed on second boot partition ?

Thanks

Dont use dorimanx or siyah.. com.android.phone force closes on both kernels.. did not grab a logcat since i switched back to mcm cm10.1 build.. probably the kernels need some patches to support this rom..
anyways the rom works great with stock kernel..

hi,
video camera doesn't work good . in the beginning the record button didn't responded, changed power shutter in the settings to on (what this option does btw?) and then it recorded , but when tried to watch the video the gallery fc'ed and the camera shows gray screen .
i flashed the rom with full wipe and format system and didn't changed the kernel

Thanks, exactly what happened, com.android.phone crashes, and as a 2nd note it did not work well when dual-booting with another ROM, it installed the SlimGapps over the 1st ROM too, and forced Kernel changing to CM10 one, I believe.

Any init.d script for gpu voltage?

Edit: surely the patched Siyah from MCM would work?

only thing I've noticed so far.

Screen goes off, press home button, screen comes back on and app closes.

We seem to be missing the lockscreem delay

Its working fine so far with the stock kernel.
I used pimp my rom and now it feels a little bit smoother.

Great work!!

iv just installed the patched siyah v5 from mcm which looks to be working but init.d scripts not working.

edit: i may have fixed the init.d issue. a few lines were missing from the install script in the rom, i think?

Looks great, flashed and will report in a couple of days.

I would love to see a MMS version which has a fully customizable theme (like on RootBox).

    Just to be clear...

    I have tested this extensively... I have other people testing it... This is why we don't do nightlies...

    Yes, we are including CM's open source RIL
    NO, we don't have the RIL issues that Rootbox has (because I figured out what was wrong and fixed it) :fingers-crossed:

    For the record, initially, I did have a broken RIL... Couldn't send touch tones in a call, couldn't hangup etc...

    TLDR; PROTIP: make clobber, tell your friends ;)

    Long Version: Turns out that, for whatever reason, the old (Sammy blob) version of libril.so was being cached and injected into the build, despite the fact that it had been removed from vendor/samsung/proprietary/i9100/lib/ :confused:

    So, you'd end up with new opensource /system/bin/rild, but old /system/lib/libril.so.

    They wouldn't play nicely together and you'd get the messed up phone functionality... :rolleyes:

    Old version of libril.so was, from memory, 49,100 bytes, new compiled one was 35,336 bytes...

    So I did what I always do when things are not being recompiled properly... I did a "make clobber"... Which completely removes the entire build directory AND wipes the compiler cache...

    Et voilà... New libril.so is built and used and everything works as it should... :thumbup: :cool:

    Note: The compiler cache is useful, in that it can cut down compile time dramatically... A full build from scratch after make clobber, using 2 threads (have to play nice with rest of team sharing build box :p) will take about an hour... If the cache is available... It'll take less than 30minutes! Very handy if you're doing a lot of compiling...

    The only issue, is that sometimes, you get situations like this, where, for whatever reason, the system doesn't detect a change and just bundles the old libraries in... :(

    Which brings me to my last point... Why I am (and most of the Slim team are) hesitant to do nightlies... (to be honest, I'm not 100% comfortable with weeklies, but they're a good way to get feedback on new features and real world user testing ;))

    Nightlies are, usually, just automatic builds of whatever is in the repo... About the only checking, is that the compile finished without errors...

    This is why they are always plastered with warnings that they are highly experimental in nature, possibly broken, use at your own risk, read before you flash, make backups etc...

    And yet, people still moan and whinge and complain at the devs and say things like "y u release broken build??!?"...

    I personally, and the Slim team as a whole, take quality seriously... Sure we've made mistakes in the past, and released subpar versions.. . And you know what? We were so concerned about it, that we modified our entire dev and release process to try to make sure it never happens again...

    This is why we:
    - moved away from the "every 2 weeks" release cycle we used to have.
    - implemented gerrit to allow for proper peer code review and testing
    - implemented a release cycle that involves code freeze, dedicated testing and final release

    Will our ROM always be perfect? No... But will we always strive to make it as close to perfect as possible? YES! :D

    Now... for some general discussion on a couple of topics...

    Firstly... Battery Life...

    There shall be no more discussions/screenshots etc about battery life, "best settings/gov/scheduler" for "best battery life" etc...

    battery is, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, very much a "personal" thing... your own particular usage patterns, apps, cell network, signal strength, RF interference, WiFi config, battery condition, brightness levels etc etc, will define what you get out of the phone/battery...

    I've seen folks who consider "normal" usage, to be having no apps installed, running all black themes/apps and sending 2 text messages a day and making or receiving one phone call of 2 minutes in length... with WiFi disabled and no mobile data. I've also seen folks who consider "normal" to be sending about 100 text messages a day... making 2 hours worth of phone calls... and listening to music via BT headphones, watching video or playing 3D games while updating Facebook every 5 minutes...

    There is no magic bullet... there is no magic governor/scheduler combo which is suddenly going to grant you 3 days of constant 3D gaming etc...

    If you suddenly get unusually high battery drain for your situation... there is about a 99% chance that you have a rogue app causing wakelocks... install BetterBatteryStats, find out what is causing all the wakelocks and fix it. If you end up in the 1%, have investigated and sought help in the BBS thread and discovered that it is actually something system related (and have BBS reports to prove it!) then go ahead and post here...

    Smartphone battery life in general is just poor compared to that old Nokia 3310 that you used to own that lasted for 7 days on a charge... get over it.

    Remember, this is, technically, a dev thread... and while I'm happy to have "general discussion" in here, mostly because a 2-thread system doesn't work... posts about battery life, and screen shots of how awesome/poor your setup is, just don't result in anything meaningful... and to be blatantly honest, there isn't anything we can really do about it to make any significant difference. Sure we might be able to get you an extra 15 mins of screen on time by tweaking the CPU and/or GPU voltages by -25mv... and opening you up to freezes, lag and random reboots in the process. :rolleyes:

    If you don't like this... feel free to go open a battery thread in the General and/or Q&A forums... any more posts in this thread regarding battery life will be reported and removed (and yes, the OP will be updated to reflect this)...

    HALO...

    quite a polarising topic this one... some folks think it is the best thing to have happened to Android. Some folks seem to think it was some sort of plague devised by Apple to destroy Android. Others simply don't care, as they realise if it ever gets implemented, it will have an On/Off switch... much like SlimPIE ;)

    As it stands, HALO just isn't ready for Slim. There are some fundamental issues with it that need to be resolved before you'll see it on an "Official" Slim build and we're not sure they can or will be resolved. This isn't just performance related either. We're talking things like:

    • The install button problem, can't press "Install" on the APK installation screen. (possibly already solved)
    • G+, whatsapp and some parts of youtube (lpe videos) are cut off or gave weird results in a floating window just to mention 3 bigger apps
    • if an app call an activity from a floating window and is waiting for activityResult the callback does not work.... Major issue!!
    • memory leaks need to be solved especially for our old devices. There is some code cleanup needed. Just turn it off for this devices do not resolve it
    This doesn't mean it will never be implemented... just that we feel it is detrimental to the overall quality and stability of the ROM as things currently stand. And of course, as with most things like this... if we ever do roll it out, it'll be a feature that you can turn on/off ;)

    On a similar topic... Hybrid mode... probably never going to happen. In our opinion, it just isn't worth the sacrifice that would have to be made to stability and performance to achieve. Consequently, this is not actively being considered, at this point, by the Slim team.


    Finally... a small teeny tiny little request... should you choose to respond to this or any of my long posts... please, for the love of little green robots everywhere... DON'T QUOTE THE WHOLE POST... remove all the bits that are not relevant!
