[ROM] Biffmod 2.1 - Leaving on a Jet Plain - (11/04/10)

Search This thread


http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=532719Hey all. I wanted a new FROYO build with apps2ext without themes and all the other mess that comes with ROMS these days. So here it is. Based off the latest CyanogenMod6 build. I'm not a dev, nor do I claim to be. I just tinker and put stuff together. Infinitybiff started a great rom which was then lifted to greater heights by RK and the BiffMod Squad, and now it's my turn and I am glad to take it over and keep this Rom alive and going strong but be under no illusion that this is and always will be a TEAM effort with everyones input from coders to end users appreciated and much love should be shown to them all. It goes without saying that if your phone blows up or otherwise breaks its not my problem and I will laugh, I'm mean like that!!!

Thanks to Infinitybiff, XxKolohexX, ChromerSmith, Kingklick, Firerat, Cyanogen, HTC, Google, Dumfuq, Houka420, and of course the guy that made this all possible JesusFreke!!!! we wouldnt be where we are now if it wasnt for him.

Like I have said a lot Sharing is Caring so the Camera fix, Single Swipe of Notification and a few other minor fixes and upgrades have been done by the hard work of the CM People who work there butts off to bring us the great work they do. So to Cyanogen and his Team THANK YOU!!! Also I would like to thank Firerat to which we are borrowing heavily from his All In One Patch (1.4) to which we made the scripts from, so to you sir Thank You!!.

Release Name: BiffMod
Release Version: V2.1
Base Firmware: 2.2.1
Radio Required:
SPL Required: Death SPL
Partition Layout: FAT32/640MB EXT3 or 4/
Wipe Required: Full wipe each flash (unless otherwise stated)

Froyo (2.2.1) (As Plain as it gets)

This should be common knowledge by now but if you want to complain about an issue make sure you have a log cat also you should be running a log cat on every first boot. If you dont have ADB set up on your computer follow this very easy guide to set it up. It truly only takes a few minutes.

PC Users - Guide ADB,FastBoot and Nandroid for Noobs

Linux Users - How to Set up Android SDK/ADB/Fastboot on Ubuntu Linux

Install Guide By Ohsaka:
No Multi-Reboot Required Anymore!

1 - (Optional,Recommended) Perform a BART backup from Recovery
2 - Power off phone
3 - Wipe system partition using one of these 4 methods:
*Volume down, home back and power for system wipe then use amon ra to wipe the rest
*fastboot erase system -w (Boot into Fastboot by holding back and power on at same time)
*adb shell mount -a; rm -rf /system/*; (ADB via recovery)
*Or using this flashable zip - Download Here Flash in Recovery reboot into recovery after flashed, Not the preferred method!!
4 - Hold Home and power on phone into Recovery mode
5 - Wipe SD Ext and repair SD Ext partition (other wipe options are redundant due to Fastboot erase)
6 - Flash the latest BiffMod ROM
6.b - ONLY if you have a 3.22.* radio install EBI1 kernel (port) file [magic32a/rogers dreams]
7 - Flash the latest BiffMod-Gapps update
8 - (Optional) Flash a BiffMod theme
9 - (Optional) Flash the ADW Launcher installer
10 - Reboot, Let screen go black before proceeding
11 - Click Menu, finish setup wizard and skip account sign in
12 - Click Menu, go to Settings, click Accounts & Sync. Sign into Google account, wait for sync to completely finish before proceeding.
13 - Click Menu, go to Settings and click cm6-BiffMod Settings
14 - Click Application Settings and check “Allow Application Moving”, dont change install location
15 - (Optional) Click Back, click Performance Settings, check Lock Home in Memory, Change VM Heap Size to 24M
15a- You can decide if you want to use Compcache or Swap (and/or JIT). We recommend Swap only and no JIT, which are the defaults now.
16 - Enjoy 2.1 and download apps and finish setting phone up your own way.

Note: You may have noticed the new option to "Enable dex2sd" under cm6-Biffmod -> Application. This will move the dalvik-cache directory to and from your sdcard. We recommend keeping it on internal memory because it will be faster. However, if you install a large number of applications then you will need to move the dalvik-cache to sdcard. After you change the setting and restart, the initial boot will take longer than normal because it has to recreate the cache directory in its new location.

More Instructions To Remove Launcher after installing AfterMarket Launcher:
Remember to have a AfterMarket Launcher installed before you attempt to do this.

In Terminal Type

su <Enter>
remove_launcher stock <Enter>

Market Fix
For those with market problems try this...



WIPE!!! Full Wipe!!! For the Love of God Wipe Everything!!! EVERYTHING!!!!!

    or do something smart like customMTD
    but you are not smart enough, so forget I mentioned it

    tech support is a job for people who read flash cards

    That's a F'd up bunch of things to say dude.

    Just because most folks don't see the world in "Matrix Vision" code like you do, doesn't mean we're all a bunch of morons. I do tech support in my free time and have never once been to school for it and have never used "flash cards".

    I understand that you have an extremely solid grasp on the inner workings of things here, but your next priority should really be to work on installing that brain to mouth/keyboard filter.

    I've pretty much lost all respect for you with that crappy attitude of superiority you constantly throw around.
    Try supersparks 1.6.3 then and tell me if you feel the same you've tried it

    hate to break it to you , but
    SuperSparks 1.6.3 is CM 6.1

    these are the only files which are different
    ( excluding the Kernel modules , which is just an other Kanged CM Kernel )

    Its a Theme, nothing more nothing less

    Full diff here

    now go away before I really take the P out of you
    but the majority of the community consists of

    • moron whiners
    • morons who can't search
    • morons that write poor guides
    • morons that try to help but just reiterate crap from poor 'guides'
    • morons who post about problems that don't exist
    • self-righteous morons

    why should I do anything for it?

    Actually, morons are only the vocal minority, like in any system. I think the majority of the community is silently appreciative of the hard work devs do. We should show our appreciation more, at least with a kind word; I suspect most of us don't because we see all the posts made by those listed above and don't want to add to the general noise level.

    I'll say it now, though: The only reason I updated to CM 6.1 was because of Magpie, and I'm thrilled to have my G1 working well enough to make the wait for a new phone/contract bearable. You still don't owe us anything, but we're grateful for all you do.
    It lives! Biffmod lives!!!!

    BIFFMOD will continue! Developers have come forward with plans to release an update to BiffMod, re-based to CM 6.1 and including other goodies they've been working on. See you in the New Year!
    Just overclocked using setcpu... BiffMod runs even faster now!

    Try the tips linked in my sig as well. My phone pretty much runs itself.
