And again you did a very good job :good:
Can I flash the new rom with GPS like an update, so that i do not have to install everything again?^^ just wipe cache and dalvik and leave the rest as it is?
Btw now the camera is the last thing missing for my holiday^^, then I can test your rom for 2 weeks outdoor

So keep on your excellent work :victory:

after flashing your latest rom, there is sometimes a red frame around the display.

Hello, I used the new Custom ROM, I liked but did not know why constantly loses coverage of the mobile operator. I have not tried GPS, WIFI is working well.
I hope you like comment on Custom ROM to help clear the error that occurred. This is not a criticism. I have great respect for you and what you do with it.
Cheers.:laugh:

BTW battery lifetime is much better than on stock rom. 6 h without charging, gps and wifi off, a lot of facebook, whatsapp, email and some gaming, 91% left :D :good: seems to be that you can use the Xcover now for a couple of days without charging ;)

Thanks for testing! I didn't notice any difference by now - the link has been pretty poor with the stock image as well. I'll put it on my list and make a comparison. Anyone knows a app to plot the link quality?

cheers,

In this special case: yes. The image from the 29th just has one config file added. Sometimes it's simple ;)

after flashing your latest rom, there is sometimes a red frame around the display.

Yep. I noticed that also. No concrete idea where it comes from but I think there's a problem with the settings provider....

cheers,

Hello,
Loving the mod, could not wait to get away from Samsungs mess.

Does anyone experience call drops after a couple of minutes? (Sound cuts out but does not seem to disconnect)

Also:
Red frame and reboots
Nevertheless, keep up the good work!

Hey, has this project moved somewhere and I missed it or is it just a low peak atm? I am asking as it seemed to have a lot of activity last month but nothing this. I would love to see CM10 fully working on the Xcover 2 as the phone has no custom roms what so ever that I can find.

I've been off for three weeks and hope I can continue working on the port in the next days. Next item is the camera and some annoying stuff like the need to enable/disable the airplane mode once to get mobile data to work..

cheers,

Sweet. Your vacation was well deserved! I was just curious if CM team had shut you down for some unknown reason or if you just changed phone etc :D

The red frame is gone, but therefore an errormessage pops up, when I try to install something from google play --> unknown errorcode "-24". I have flashed the rom 4 times, but nothing changes

Sent from my GT-S7710 using xda app-developers app

    Hey guys,

    I recently compiled flxo CM11.0 rom with STE OMX support (from TeamCanjica).
    I've been testing it for a couple of weeks, for me everything seems ok (no reboots, camera working ...)

    I didn't test bluetooth hand's free, but it's certainly still broken.

    You can download this rom from my dropbox account :

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rtxuqcwffgf5qlc/RM2nKHFRBY

    I'm also trying to compile Ubuntu Touch for S7710, I'll let you know when the rom will be flashable.
    7
    I need some testers please send me a pm.

    edit: I have enough testers. The ROM is vanir aosp you can see it on youtube.

    It officially supports s3 mini (golden) , codinalte (galaxy exhibit) , X cover 2 (skomer)

    Even more it has support for Samsung STE/Novathor chipsets. The golden and skomer are set up to inherit from my device since we maintain our trees the s3 mini and x cover won't need updating they will always stay up to date.

    The last release fixes the random reboots that occurred with Beta 10. I used it for a week or so and did not have such issues any more.
    Don't expect any updates for the near future - I'm short on spare time. Furthermore I'd really appreciate if someone is willing to take of this port. Especially the CM-11.0 stuff need some investigation. Patches for OMX are available in the meantime and they are ready to get integrated - not a hard job, but needs some coding skills...

    have a nice day,

    flxo
