Cool The StormDroid Situation (UPDATED 9/20/11)

Alright. As many of you know, StormDroid has been leaked by one person, known as, TesterForRoms, ROMLeaker, and LegionOfAnon. I overreacted at the time and said that development on StormDroid was over. I can tell you that we are still working on StormDroid and hope for a release within the next few weeks. We will make the release thread prior to that day so keep your eyes peeled for when it changes. We will post it to our website before we post it here.

Anyways, to sum it all up:
StormDroid still exists
Release soon
Website



Here is the old version of this post.

I don't remember my Ally ever vibrating for 2 seconds when I unlocked it, but I just unlocked StormDroid and the vibration was not long at all.

Perhaps you could change your settings? Mine is set to vibrate when sounding a ringtone, but it does not vibrate when unlocking. I think the reason is that I don't use the haptic feedback setting.

No, I do like the haptic feedback, its just that I dont like the intensity of it. Looking for something that will reduce the intensity of it. That's why I was looking if this rom has this option to set into HIGH intensity of haptic feedback or LOW intensity..

Well, based upon what I know of these vibration devices, they are actually tiny little motors with an eccentric weight on the shaft. That said, if they are set up to do PWM, it 'should be possible' to vary the speed of the motor and that would reduce the intensity of the vibration. But if there is no facility to access that circuit from within the phone's OS, I doubt there is much one could do to change it. PWM requires a controller, or controlling programming, to set the pulse widths and frequency.

I wouldn't be surprised if the phone manufacturers never felt the need to do this. So it may be as simple as switching voltage on or off to the little motor. If it is that simple, there may not be a way to control the switching other than on and off. If there is a way, it might come down to being controlled in the OS kernel and not in the ROMs our devs can customize, which would also make changing it harder to do.

Not being a programmer, I can only make these guesses.

I looked for this issue on the XDA Developers Forum, and you are not alone. Several people would like to modify the vibration. But I did not find much in the line of saying it had been done. It is apparently possible, however. One post mentioned there being a vibration intensity setting in the Sound settings on an SGS Captivate. So perhaps these good folks might make it work for you after all.

PWM requires a controller, or controlling programming, to set the pulse widths and frequency.

I wouldn't be surprised if the phone manufacturers never felt the need to do this. So it may be as simple as switching voltage on or off to the little motor. If it is that simple, there may not be a way to control the switching other than on and off. If there is a way, it might come down to being controlled in the OS kernel and not in the ROMs our devs can customize, which would also make changing it harder to do.

Not being a programmer, I can only make these guesses.
I like the way you think... you're absolutely correct about how to manipulate the intensity of the vibration, but like you were saying I don't think there is any choice besides "on" and "off". Having some working knowledge of electronics I can tell you that the physical circuit that controls the vibrating motor is hard wired to send a specific voltage to the motor at a specific frequency once triggered.

I highly doubt that any manufacturer (at least cell phone manufacturer) took this idea into account when designing a phone... its either 1 or 0... on or off. Without some sort of variable resistor or multiple circuits that can trigger the motor at different voltages I just don't think its possible... but I would love to be proved wrong because that would be a really cool feature.

I get where youre going but like my cousin has a Galaxy S and Rooted with Cyangen, and there is an option where you can reduce the intesity of the feedback, thats why I am asking if there is an option for that in this rom

Thank you, kind sir! "May the hair on your toes never fall out!"

I know just enough about hobby electronics to be dangerous, but still have fun with it.

I just got a posting notification from the XDA thread to which I subscribed on this topic. Here is what was posted :

"For root user(s), There is a menu in cyanogen menu that allows you to tune the time and pattern you want. Hope this help."

So, it CAN be done through programming, at least on some Android phones. The question now will be whether Storm Droid devs will try to do it. Sounds like a cool challenge to me, were I into that sort of thing.

There seems to have been more then enough time invested in the develpment of Stormdroid to at least have a projected release date. Maybe before all the ally phones disappear from use.

ALRIGHT... which one of you is doing this?
First, someone copied our teaser video, with no credit:
StormDroid Revealed - YouTube


THEN, someone somehow got ahold of a beta, and leaked it:
Storm Droid ROM LEAKED - YouTube

Whoever is doing this: QUIT IT

excellent idea whoever is doing that, piss off the developers so it never gets released and ruin it for everyone.

Jackass.

And we were so close to releasing too. Oh well. Looks like we just have to close up shop and move on.
