Downloaded, instaled, running for 30 minutes... so far ok, everything works, good work!

I have just a few comments:
- I do not like the market 3.2 version (no problem, I will replace it)
- browser - I need to investigate more, but it feels a bit laggy when scrolling long pages with a lot of pictures...
- would it be possible to incorporate circle or digi battery in the rom?

Once more, good work, thanks.

Thx. I tried my best.
I don't lke 3.2 market to. I will switch back to original market in the next version.
Maybe its the defaultGovernor that the browseris laggy. Try to set it to ondemand.
I also like to integrate a circle battery mod. I know in witch files i have to do that,
but i don't have a howto for doing that. Anyway, i'll try it this week.

Could you please tell me the problem in detail. Is there a 3g symbol in the statusbar?
The rom is based on an original A501 rom. I didn't modified anything on the modem files. So it should work. Maybe you have to configure the apn settings manually.
built-in modem does not work on a501

Thanks for quick reply.

I set governor to ondemmand and the browser feels a lot smother.

It would be great if you do the circle battery :) now I use the Battery circle app, but it looks not so nice...

Regarding the internal modem - I did not need to touch anything, apn was automatic,it works for me well.

One question, which kernel do you recommend - Tabonay or Thor?

I'm nearly finished with the circle battery mod. At the moment i test the result. If every thing works fine i attach the mod tomorrow.

The Villain Kernel is great and works fine. The Thor kernel has a bit better performance results at my tests.

If you like, i can make a patch, that removes the 3g stuff and adds the huwei 3g support for 3g stick. I'm not able to test it with a500, but i think i can also check it with my a501.

Anyone try this on an A500 yet. should only give a "Please insert sim card" waring on the lock screen right?

    Not by now. I try to implement usb support within the next Weeks.

    Does it support 3G with 3G USB Modems? and can I open my 1TB ext HDD on my a500?
    What should I do exactly on my a500 to have 3G? and does it work only with specific Modems or can I use other Modems like Vodafone or something else?
