no its an issue that hasn't been fixed yet, but i believe he worked on it and it should come out as soon as 4.2 drops
Tried to update to 4.0.4 from 4.0.1 (figured it should be pretty easy), however, after I did so and started up, when the home screen loaded up two processes called something like "core" and "phone" would continuously force quit. I had to go back to my save with nandroid to get my phone working again.
Any idea why that happened? I tried the fix permissions script, but it didn't seem to fix the problem.
I have a Rooted G1 with cyanogen that i am trying to sell, but all my pics and contacts are on there. I was thinking i could just do my backup pro and copy everything to my sd card and then do factory reset. sell him the phone and keep the memory card. is that going to work? he dont care if it rooted or not. whats going to happen to the apps that are on the phone? or is it even going to work without the sd card?
Frequently Asked Questions said:1. Do I have to wipe?
You shouldn't have to wipe if coming from a JF ADP-based ROM, otherwise, probably. If weird things are happening, try wiping. You can also try the permission fixer script linked above. If you are coming from an HTC-based ROM like Hero or Sapphire, you are going to have to wipe.
2. Will you include the HTC Dialer/HTC Mail?
No, because I won't be shipping the full HTC-modified Android core (it's not open source), which these apps depend on. I do include the "Work Email" application which is the HTC Exchange client.
3. Will this work on the Magic?
It will work on Dream (G1) or Magic 32B (myTouch). I plan to support 32A devices soon.
4. How do I set up apps-to-sd?
You need to create a second partition on your SD card in the ext2/ext3/ext4 format. Search the forums if you don't know how to do this. Once created, the ROM will move your apps automatically and new apps will be installed to the SD by default.
5. How do I install MyFaves?
Look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=542267
6. Will you include feature X, Y, or Z?
Maybe, ask me about it.
7. How do I convert to Ext3?
Reboot into recovery (home + power), drop to a console (Alt+x), and enter: "upgrade_fs". Reboot and you will be at ext3. This requires my recovery image listed above.
8. Can I use Ext4?
Yes, the kernel supports it (with delayed allocation fixes) and the required tools are there. You'll need to do the conversion manually, though.
9. How do I enable the HTC_IME?
Go into settings->Locale & text and disable "Android Keyboard" and enable "Touch Input".
10. Can I tether with this?
Yes. I recommend using Wifi Tether for Root Users
11. I want to switch back to ext2.
Reboot into recovery (my recovery image), drop to a console (Alt+X). Remove the journal with "tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/block/mmcblk0p2". You should then fsck with "e2fsck /dev/block/mmcblk0p2".
12. Will you include feature XXX from Hero?
No. Most of the HTC apps in Hero require the heavily modified closed-source Android core which I won't be including.
13. My /system/sd is read only and/or didn't upgrade to ext3!
Your filesystem is probably corrupt. Boot into Recovery 1.2+ and run a filesystem check from the menu. If it tells you to run it manually, drop to a console (alt+x) and run "e2fsck /dev/block/mmcblk0p2".
14. Is ext3/ext4 safe for my SD card?
Probably, unless your card is very old and does not support wear leveling. Use Google and decide for yourself.
15. I have problems with force closes of paid apps and have to reinstall my them after a no-wipe upgrade!
Run the "permission fixer" script. It is included in this build as well as Recovery 1.2+. Just execute "fix_permissions" from a terminal or the recovery console and reboot.
16. Can I use your work in my own ROM?
Of course, I am all about sharing! Just give credit where credit is due.
17. It's taking forever to boot!
The first boot will take longer than normal because dexopt needs to run. If you are nervous, connect USB and run "adb logcat" to watch the progress.
18. My phone rebooted by itself!
Possible kernel panic or oops. Please get me the output of "cat /proc/last_msg" when you reboot so it can be debugged.
19. My camera is black and white only!
You have settings left over from the old Android camera. Just go into the Camera, hit menu, settings, then "reset to defaults".
20. My auto-rotate/accelerometer isn't working!
Not really the fault of the ROM, but here's how to fix it: Go into recovery, drop to console, "mount /data", then "rm /data/misc/akmd* /data/misc/rild*" and reboot.
21. What about swap space?
As of 4.0, Compcache is activated by default unless a userinit.sh script is present. Search the forums for information on how to create a userinit.sh to activate swap.
22. Will you include the Flash Player from Hero?
No, because it's tightly coupled to the Hero Browser, which is tightly coupled to the Hero Framework. It's not easily portable at this point. Run Hero if you want it. Otherwise, we will have to wait for something more compatible.
