Hi,

On this thread I'll put my unofficial CM9 builds. They are fully vanilla, except for the volume slider in the status bar, they are exactly the same as Hashcode builds and they include the latest CM source changes. According to this, the issues and bugs are exactly the same.

Read this thread before posting: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1615355. DO NOT report any problem in the main discussion/dev thread! You can report them here and pray :).

Changelog: http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#/q/status:merged+branch:ics,n,z

June 08 build (Source updated to IMM76L (http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#/c/17291/)): http://d-h.st/CiD

June 07 build: http://d-h.st/TMO
md5: f660a370a0a25e0961aea0551c09b911

June 06 build: http://d-h.st/B60
md5: 832b4f2a70c7cb9366cec8520c224738

Instructions:

Comming from Hashcode's CM9 or another build:
1) Reboot into Recovery (you must use TWRP 2.X or Hashcode's CWMR 5.5.0.4, otherwise flashing will fail)
2) Backup your current ROM
3) Wipe cache
4) Flash the ROM
5) Optionally flash GApps
6) Reboot

Comming from any other ROM:
1) Reboot into Recovery (you must use TWRP 2.X, otherwise flashing will fail. DO NOT try to use Hashcode's CWMR since some users report serious partitioning issues when wiping data/factory reseting as of 05-12 CWMR 5.5.0.4 build)
2) Backup your current ROM
3) Wipe data/factory reset (highly recommended but should work without if comming from a CM9 ROM. At least please DO NOT report any issue if you didn't wipe)
4) Flash the ROM
5) Optionally flash GApps
6) Reboot

Enjoy :).

Appreciate you doing this, one of the main reasons I tend to stay with Hashcode's builds is that I like them plain vanilla. I like to customize them myself, so again, thanks for doing this.

Only thing I will mention is that d/l is really slow. LOL

Trojan38, if I replace the systemUI apk with the one from Hashcode's latest build, will that give me the volume slider? Thanks.

Thanks! Just installed the latest ROM and it works like a charm. Love the Volume Slider and the fact that those unnecessary Bluetooth and Flight Mode sliders are gone.

The only thing missing now is a fully functional sleep mode. ATM the screen does come on every few minutes which diminishes battery life.

Never seen this on any build. Could be related to an app you have installed.

You could do the following:

Install better battery stats (available on xda for free or if you want to support the dev also on the market) and check your wakelocks.

Or, you could make a nandroid backup, also backup all user apps using titanium backup, and start over. Full wipe (cache, dalvik, data and system) and flash again. The observe if this still happens.

Then restore your apps one by one and observe.

Here's the new build including the volume slider, and without Bluetooth and Airplane Mode toggles (thanks to twa_priv) :

May 20 build (the name says May 21) : http://d-h.st/dQc
md5 : 8ca044b9d1289762e8d16a5318f22e0c

New build up and running well. Thanks and also thanks twa_priv. Btw, I've never had issues with the screen coming on as referenced by Shahpur.Azizpour on any of the builds.

Also, I use Green Power which overrides system settings for turning off wifi. When the screen is off, Green Power turns off the wifi and has been pretty effective at saving battery for me.

I checked again and the problem was the app 'screen off and lock' after reinstall everything works fine.

But i noticed that charging was much much faster with the latest Hashcode build. Right now I'm charging with the stock kindle wall charger and it seems awfully slow....

In case anyone was wondering, I officially approve this thread.

It's been hell devving the kernel, recovery, bootloader and keeping a CM ROM up-to-date w/ the latest CM changes when I'm really just looking to test new kernel changes on a semi-currently CM build.

I will probably get the rest of the device tree good for merging w/ CM and then change my official build to something a bit different: A straight AOSP build from OmapZoom (TI) sources as a bleeding-edge build for testing new source changes on the device.

I was wondering a bit but figured Trojan38 would do the right thing by you before posting this up. Speaking of wondering, I've been wondering how you've been managing to keep all these pots cooking at the same time, with kernel, rom, bootloader and even recovery. Oh and I guess I forgot you also "tinker" a bit in the NT forum. WHEW! :D

You've been Super Man and I'm sure you realize that the KF community really appreciates your work. Looking forward to your future kernel development and thanks again.

thanks for the hints. screen off and lock was the app causing the problems!
