Highly experimental stuff:
Release candidates and nightly builds available via Rom-Manager.



Description:
CyanogenMod has nightly builds for Legend since Sept. 30 2010 as it's become an officially supported device. I will provide experimental builds (for public beta testing) here from time to time. No files available for the moment.


Please adhere to a few rules when discussing builds in here.

  • Read and search before you post.
  • Do not request help. This is the development board.
  • Requests for builds, features, fixes or apps to include will be ignored.
  • Do not report broken or not installable apps from the Market (we can't fix them).
  • Do not expect bugs to be fixed.

Thanks, ali ba. Would you consider automating the builds, or do the patches you apply to CM for Legend support break frequently?

I've always been curious of why you haven't submitted your patches upstream to CM, but that's for another discussion. :)

Nope, no automated builds planned. Thus inverted commas in "nightly" builds.

I submitted all that were useful enough and not breaking anything else.

The most critical one being the lights patch because CM code is still written as if every device had a trackball RGB light. Will most likely never submit that one.

    msm7227 ports are coming in well :)

    Yes, there will be support for msm7x27 - mostly because we have such awesome maniacs like arcee :). Unfortunately msm7k devices differ a lot and what works on one device might very well be broken on another one.


    Adreno 200 will remain a huge problem but even on that side there is some real hope :) as people have begone to manipulate the ICF framework to fit the old drivers and others startet a symbol translation layer fro the old to the new driver

    Those are "only" the basics. I won't comment on translation layers until I had the chance to test them on my device here (still, I don't expect high performance), but I'm rather concerned about everything else.

    We are still using a very old kernel release, mostly because HTC never gave us working source code (GPL, GPL, GPL!) for their tiwlan implementation. This is a real shame as TI open sourced everything (except for the firmware) and is doing a real good job supporting the open source community.


    I'm considering trying to remove that compat-wireless clutter and getting the native tiwlan1273 driver to work with the Legend, but that'd involve digging deeply into all those board files. I should actually dig deep into my bachelor's thesis, so no hacking for me (at least until February).
