QUICK FAQ - 2/19/11

Q: WHAT IS THIS?

A developer port of Cyanogenmod 7 for the encore device, which has been in development for about two months starting in early January and has only recently been deemed good enough for a wider range of developers to use.​

Q: WHERE TO GET NEWS ON PROGRESS?

I will tweet progress from time to time.
Twitter: @dalingrin

We are usually in #nookie on freenode.

You can always check the Cyanogen [email protected] http://github.com/cyanogenmod

Q: WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'T?

As of this writing, most things do work-- touchscreen, wifi, sound, accelerometer, etc.
See the issue list here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=960537

Q: How do report a bug I find?

PLEASE post logs to pastebin.com and include them in your report.
To grab android logs you can run "adb logcat -d > log.txt"
This will output the log to the log.txt file and can then be posted on www.pastebin.com

Kernel logs can be had by running "adb shell dmeg > dmesg.txt"
This will output the dmesg log to dmesg.txt for easy posting on www.pastebin.com

Describe the issue as well as you can:





Relevant logs(logcat, dmesg)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: WHO PORTED THIS?

Cyanogenmod itself is the creation of thousands of developers.

A vast team from around the world including members of Team Douche as well as unaffiliated individual developers have been collaborating for about two months on this port. Additional contributions continue to come from around the Internet. You are invited to help by contributing YOUR fixes.​

Q: WILL CM7 RUN OFF OF AN SD CARD? OR DOES IT USE THE INTERNAL STORAGE OF MY DEVICE?

The nightly builds are intended to run entirely off the internal storage device. Should you decide to install one of those .zip files, you should expect to overwrite whatever was installed in those partitions.

It is critical to understand that CM7 is development software that may cause serious issues, loss of data, and/or other problems with your device and to your life in general. By loading and/or running the software, you must understand and accept full responsibility for your actions and all consequences and agree to adhere to the varied licenses and terms and conditions that comprise the software.

Q: IS THERE AN SD-ONLY "BOOTABLE" VERSION?

Not from the nighty builds. However-- should someone want to create such a bootable SD-- (warning: Slightly technical answer:) all it would take to create one is a new uRamdisk file with the partitions in init.encore.rc pointing to the correct partitions on the SD card.​

Q: I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHATEVER RESULTS. WHERE DO I GET THIS?

Cyanogenmod 7 for encore is available as a nightly build. See the XDA dev thread for download and development discussion:​

Q: WHAT IS "ENCORE" ANYWAY?

Cyanogenmod has a fun little convention to name ports after the device's original project name.​

Q: WHERE IS THE SOURCE?

On Github.com.​

Q: I'M A "TECCHY" PERSON-- WHAT KERNEL DOES THIS USE?

A somewhat-modified version of the "stock" 2.6.29 source provided by Barnes & Noble (in accordance with the GPL). Changes to this kernel include a fix for a temperature bug, a fix to a cache race-condition resulting in kernel panics, ext4 support, and support for large block devices, among other things.

A port to 2.6.32 is currently underway that may facilitate improved "deeper" sleep.​

Q: IS THE KERNEL OVERCLOCKED?

Just like the original stock kernel, the CM7 kernel runs at 800Mhz. However, you may overclock the default kernel to 925mhz through Cyanogenmod Settings. Cyanogenmod has a policy to not include voltage modified kernels. If you want a faster overclock see Dalingrin's 1.1 Ghz kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=925451

Use entirely at your own risk.​

Q: WHAT ARE THESE OTHER VERSIONS OF CM7-BASED ROMS?

Because CM7 is open-source software, people are free to modify it as they wish and re-release, provided they are compliant with the terms of the original licenses. The CM7 developers have nothing to do with these derivative releases, which may or may not be of decent quality.
Q: WHEN WILL THE FINAL VERSION BE RELEASED?

When it's ready. Please do not ask this, as it is considered the mark of a newb. In the meanwhile, nightlies are rolling out every evening with the improvements from that day, not only to the encore port in particular, but to Cyanogenmod in general.​

The current CM7 encore zip seems like it will write to mmcblk0p5 (NC's internal EMMC). Any chance of getting one that uses something like mmcblk1p2 instead to install on my EXT4 SD Card? Why? I'd prefer my internal eclair install to remain unaffected by these experiments.

I dont get how to install this to EMMC. Can someone post a quick guide. Thanks in advance

instructions are posted in the ext4 thread.

Caveats:
* eMMC only.
* very early test build.

Step by step instructions:
  1. Download an ext4 compatible bootable SD recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=11447175&postcount=1
  2. Verify that the download worked. md5s are at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=11449725&postcount=15
  3. Extract the .img for the .tar.gz
  4. Burn the recovery img to an SD card as explained at http://nookdevs.com/NookColor_Rooting#Steps
  5. Download the flashable zip. Currently available via torrent (http://tracker.cryptolect.com/IOM/update-cm-7.0.0-RC1-encore-KANG-signed.zip.torrent) and several mirrors (http://legacyschool.us.to/nookdev/cyanogenmod/update-cm-7.0.0-RC1-encore-KANG-signed.zip , http://tsunade.net/nookdev/cyanogenmod/, http://mother-douchebag.com/update-cm-7.0.0-RC1-encore-KANG-signed.zip) Check the md5 of this zip!
  6. Download the google apps from one of the links at http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Latest_Version/Google_Apps Check the md5 of this zip!
  7. Copy the cm7 zip and the google apps zip to the bootable SD card you created.
  8. Unmount the SD card from your PC, insert it into your nook.
  9. Reboot into the SD card/recovery should read version 3.0.0.6.
  10. Under mounts Format system, data, cache.
  11. Flash from .zip the cm7 zip and the google apps zip.
  12. Remove the SD card.
  13. Reboot system.

Great video, and I subscribed to your collection of videos on YouTube. Thank you for not adorning it with some idiotic music.
However, out of what I heard, I didn't understand, you sounded like Flash (10.1?) is working (and it shows full YouTube Web page where it's needed), but YouTube itself is not working. Could you elaborate on this? Could you try to adb install other versions and tweaks of YouTube apk, like "HQ" YouTube, or "signed_YouTube", or whatever?
Please post more videos on Flash/YouTube/other (mv4, avi, etc.) videos playing, Flash Web pages and elementary Flash games.

Thank you. Have posted your video in my blog, and will be posting more.

From what Ive gathered (i could be completely wrong) it lacks video decoding drivers. Youtube.com works because its using flash and is based on the cpu. Where-as youtube apps do not use flash, and thus try to load a video codec which doesn't exist causing it to error. The youtube app alongside other non-flash video apps fail to load for me.

My Installation Diary

For those that need more in depth instructions, I logged my entire install process and am sharing. If anyone has suggestions for changes, please let me know. I might have done something different from another person, but I had no problems getting the first release installed, running and overclocked.

Your mileage may vary, I am not responsible for anything you do to your Nook, even if you did follow my advice. I am not claiming to be anything special here, just sharing what worked for me and my Nook.

faceman said:
Before beginning:
1. Booted into Recovery
2. Created new nand backup
3. Removed and stored MAIN sd

Using a new and different sd:
1. created 4gb CWR_ext4_0.1 bootable SD
2. moved flashable zip (update-cm-7.0.0-RC1-encore-KANG-signed) to SD
3. moved latest gapps (Latest Version/Google Apps - CyanogenMod Wiki) to SD
4. insert into NC

Installing
1. boot with bootable sd (CWR_ext4_0.1 - ClockworkMod Recovery v3.0.0.6
2. 'mounts and storage' --> format /system ; /data ; /cache
3. back to main menu
4. 'install zip from sdcard' --> 'choose zip from sdcard' --> select "update-cm-7.0.0-RC1-encore-KANG-signed.zip"
5. 'install zip from sdcard' --> 'choose zip from sdcard' --> select "gapps-gb-20110120-signed.zip"
6. 'mounts and storage' --> unmount sdcard --> remove sdcard
7. reboot

First Boot
1. (chills seeing that little cm7 droid boot animation)
2. @ Welcome to NookColor --> waited full 5 minutes for system to settle (?)
3. tapped Droid to begin setup
4. waited for Notification Bar to show WiFi available --> dragged down to open
5. Selected my router and logged in
6. Used built in 'Back Button' in top right of notification bar to go back to setup
7. @ Set up your Google Account --> signed in
8. @ Market Apps Installer - IMPORTANT: Read This! --> OK
9. @ Choose the apps to install --> preference i guess (gmail and google search were already installed - I added YouTube) --> ok
10. above took me to YouTube install screeen from market, seleceted Install then OK
11. @ Use Google Location --> i uncheck both since it's not a phone --> Next
12. @ Back up data --> i uncheck again --> Next
13. "Your Google Account is now linked to this phone" --> Finish setup
14. now to set time prefferences --> personal preference here (set time zone and current time will adjust) --> Next
15. WOOT! CM7 Home Screen!
16. Open Apps --> Settings --> CyanogenMod Settings --> Lockscreen --> Style Options --> Lockscreen style --> change to Sliding Tab (this is because the Rotary wheel isn't sized right yet and is real hard to use currently)
17. back @ Settings --> Applications --> check allow for Unknown Sources
18. open Market --> downloaded Titanium Backup
19. in markeet --> downloaded Screenshot It Trial
20. in market --> downloaded Flash Player 10.1
21. in market --> downloaded Linpack for Android (bench test)
22. Reboot into Recovery - forgot to flash the 1.1 oc kernel (duh)
23. 'install zip from sdcard' --> 'choose zip from sdcard' --> select "update-1100mhz-froyo_CM7-emmc-cwm.zip"
24. Reboot

Enjoying a nice overclocked CM7 build...

Sounds like a good enough explanation to me. Except for the part that YouTube presumably based on CPU (=software decoding?) is using Flash (? Flash requires specific hardware decoding support for its quasi-H.264 stream decoding, if none offered, it won't even install).
Missing "commercial" decoders capable to use HW assisted decoding (and rendering) in a "clean" CM7 nightly could be to blame, the question now is what decoders are missing and how to add them.
In any case, I would love to hear (and possibly see in video clips) some other experiences. Namely, my first impression was quite opposite: YouTube (inline, in a Web page, and not in apk) is now working whereas full Flash 10.1 doesn't install, or FCes if installed somehow, etc.

Lack of list with known unfixed bugs for the nightly turns the build into a puzzle. Sure the CM devs are in no way under any obligation to accommodate every piece of proprietary code (YouTube, Flash, Market, Gapps, etc.) but at least they might state simply that IVA2/DSP doesn't work yet in this initial build.

On the more positive note, I would love to hear and see the video of improved GUI responsiveness and some racing game showing nice response and detailed textures, etc. Neocore benchmark? Linpack?

it's so early on, I think we are lucky to even have nightlies. I doubt they will release any 'known issues' until an RC

yeah..., I thought so too. Still good to know that SGX GPU core has started to breathe (in GUI responsiveness and maybe in some games) instead of just sucking the battery juice for nothing.
Forgot to ask: has anyone rooted it to see and change LCD density to its physical 169.3333? Maybe some stuff with wrongly scaled lock screen, etc. will resolve better? Back arrow in a right upper corner is weird, hopefully Volume keys hack is still doable.
Forgot to ask how does new fake name "Encore" for the NC affect the completeness of the Market?

    In an effort to completely document the "Going to CM7 and Coming Back from CM7" experience for myself and my fellow rooters, I have compiled the following diary of install. Please let me know if there are missing steps or extraneous steps that can be removed. Remember please that I am trying to COMPLETELY document the process (at least as much as pertains directly to CM7) and the audience is for everyone, even real noobs who you know will be trying this and crying about some dumb mistake. Thanks for your feedback.

    Signal icon should be fixed in next nightly: http://review.cyanogenmod.com./#change,10233

    SOD
    Also, please test the kernel. This silly SOD problem is the bane of my existence because I cannot reproduce. Really need someone to give feedback on that kernel so I know how to move forward.

    ICS
    Work is underway to get legacy device(thats us) to work with ICS. These legacy hal changes will make it easier to support the Nook Color but we still need to either backport DSS and SGX drivers for update to a new kernel. Both of these options are a good bit of work and won't happen overnight so please be patient. =)

    2.6.32 kernel for CM7 is mostly complete.

    + Sleep fixed
    + Able to build a new wifi module finally. *Should* fix wifi issues.
    - Hardware overlay does not work
    - No bluetooth yet. We are trying a completely different method to init and communicate with bluetooth. This will take a little time.

    No hardware overlay causes higher resolution videos to be a little choppy. I am going to continue to work on this tomorrow and hopefully have something to post.

    App or process having the problem:


    Steps to reproduce the problem:




    Describe the issue as well as you can:





    Relevant logs(logcat, dmesg)


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Q: WHO PORTED THIS?

    Cyanogenmod itself is the creation of thousands of developers.

    A vast team from around the world including members of Team Douche as well as unaffiliated individual developers have been collaborating for about two months on this port. Additional contributions continue to come from around the Internet. You are invited to help by contributing YOUR fixes.​

    Q: WILL CM7 RUN OFF OF AN SD CARD? OR DOES IT USE THE INTERNAL STORAGE OF MY DEVICE?

    The nightly builds are intended to run entirely off the internal storage device. Should you decide to install one of those .zip files, you should expect to overwrite whatever was installed in those partitions.

    It is critical to understand that CM7 is development software that may cause serious issues, loss of data, and/or other problems with your device and to your life in general. By loading and/or running the software, you must understand and accept full responsibility for your actions and all consequences and agree to adhere to the varied licenses and terms and conditions that comprise the software.

    Q: IS THERE AN SD-ONLY "BOOTABLE" VERSION?

    Not from the nighty builds. However-- should someone want to create such a bootable SD-- (warning: Slightly technical answer:) all it would take to create one is a new uRamdisk file with the partitions in init.encore.rc pointing to the correct partitions on the SD card.​

    Q: I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHATEVER RESULTS. WHERE DO I GET THIS?

    Cyanogenmod 7 for encore is available as a nightly build. See the XDA dev thread for download and development discussion:​

    Q: WHAT IS "ENCORE" ANYWAY?

    Cyanogenmod has a fun little convention to name ports after the device's original project name.​

    Q: WHERE IS THE SOURCE?

    On Github.com.​

    Q: I'M A "TECCHY" PERSON-- WHAT KERNEL DOES THIS USE?

    A somewhat-modified version of the "stock" 2.6.29 source provided by Barnes & Noble (in accordance with the GPL). Changes to this kernel include a fix for a temperature bug, a fix to a cache race-condition resulting in kernel panics, ext4 support, and support for large block devices, among other things.

    A port to 2.6.32 is currently underway that may facilitate improved "deeper" sleep.​

    Q: IS THE KERNEL OVERCLOCKED?

    Just like the original stock kernel, the CM7 kernel runs at 800Mhz. However, you may overclock the default kernel to 925mhz through Cyanogenmod Settings. Cyanogenmod has a policy to not include voltage modified kernels. If you want a faster overclock see Dalingrin's 1.1 Ghz kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=925451

    Use entirely at your own risk.​

    Q: WHAT ARE THESE OTHER VERSIONS OF CM7-BASED ROMS?

    Because CM7 is open-source software, people are free to modify it as they wish and re-release, provided they are compliant with the terms of the original licenses. The CM7 developers have nothing to do with these derivative releases, which may or may not be of decent quality.
    Q: WHEN WILL THE FINAL VERSION BE RELEASED?

    When it's ready. Please do not ask this, as it is considered the mark of a newb. In the meanwhile, nightlies are rolling out every evening with the improvements from that day, not only to the encore port in particular, but to Cyanogenmod in general.​

    ooop sorry i meant a flashable zip with just the new driver and installable on existing cm7.1 release.

    thx.

    I created flashable zips that just installs the files needed to fix the signal bar issue and wifi driver to prevent SODs. I have shown the links below. Just install with CWM Recovery or ROM Manager. To install with RM, go to "install ROM from SD" and follow prompts. Be sure to choose "wipe Dalvik". These work with emmc installed CM7. I don't know if they work with SD installs.

    This zip is for CM 7.1 stable and recent nightlies that have the 2.6.32.9 kernel. (Look in settings/about tablet)

    Install zip (SOD fix only):
