Default Velocity 1.2.2 OPEN Beta

Presenting
Velocity 1.2.2 Open Beta
Dry, no lube!

The next revision of Velocity is upon us! The new Velocity is ICS infused bringing you all the cosmetic wonders of Android 4.0 without any of the awesome system enhancements it is known so well for!

To participate just download the latest:
Beta 11
Beta 13
Beta 14
Beta 18

To join the cool club please do the following:
  1. Backup your existing Rom so you cant come whining to me when all your p0rn gets lost
  2. Download the latest beta and slap it on your sdcard
  3. Wipe EVERYTHING (except your sdcard :P)
  4. Install the beta zip you downloaded (please ensure signature verification is OFF)


Throughout the testing I have done thus far this variant appears to be MORE stable than 1.2.1 (I am blaming this on the fact I made 1.2.1 WITHOUT an Ally)
Other than the launcher issues (random force closes, it is more stable for some than others O.o) it seems solid so far.

Please post issues, feedback. I am mostly doing this as mentioned to go along with the script update, so I am focusing on that, so feature and app additions to the rom itself will be limited and my work will be focused on bug smashing

PS: When you report a bug please be helpful, dont just say such and such isnt working, tell me at least what you where doing, what other apps where running, OC status and anything else you can think of, unless you can provide a logcat


KNOWN ISSUES:
  • Stock calendar not displaying correctly
  • It is far too awesome for the average bear
  • You tell me....

CHANGES:
  • ICS Launcher and Theme
  • ICS Font (google kang)
  • Awesome sysctl tweaks from StormDroid team for epic battery life
  • Support for Ad-Hoc networking
  • All apps updated to latest versions
  • Default Overclock at 724mhz
  • While I was typing this up I forgot everything else, and lost my changelog... so its... a MYSTERY until I get a device to look at

The ics launcher is built from adw code so its basically the same launcher just different ui

I had no problems with the ICS launcher FCing. I do wish I could update the desktop row spacing from 4 to 5 like you can with other launchers. But that is not a problem with the ROM, just the app.

Just a few notes thus far for Beta 11:

I turned off ICS Launcher's System Persistent setting. I then set the LCD density to 300, rebooted, and of course that was too large (I was trying to get the screen smaller). So, I set it to 150, rebooted, and ICS Launcher began FC'ing right away. I booted into recovery and only wiped /cache, then re-flashed. To my surprise, it worked ... I didn't lose my apps, all settings were the same; LCD density was set to its default 240. Gaining confidence, I left System Persistent off, booted to a density of 175, and found it too small. 200 does the trick with no trouble.

UPDATE: ICSL is sporadically throwing FCs during app transitions, but it's not entering an FC loop per setting LCD density to 150.

With all LCD densities I've tried, I still don't see a desktop indicator.
Although I like the look of the interface better, including the status bar's artwork, I miss the feel of ADW Launcher's app drawer's 3D scrolling. Now that I have a larger desktop, I have room for six columns, without the functionality to change from four. I also miss "Open Application" upon Swipe Up.

The only problem I had with your previous ROM seems to be fixed: I used to get "Insufficient space" errors in Market, preventing app install, even after clearing dalvik-cache from recovery. I've yet to get an "Insufficient space" error thus far with Beta 11.

This is all using smartass on 245/806 MHz.

I truly appreciate your work. Keep it up. Will send some cash your way soon.

P.S: I shed my cell phone bill with the Ally and Savoxis' ROM. WiFi is everywhere, peeps. Install Sipdroid, pair it to your Google Voice number, log into pbxes.org > Personal Data: switch your server to a location near you, switch the software version to "Newest G722" for optimal voice quality, install REGPON wifi KeepAlive so you're connected to pbxes.org even though the rest of your phone is idle, and you're good to go. Cost for all the above: $0. Cost per month: $0.

That's basically what I used to do. In fact, that is what I used to do. Because of the delay I encountered when I used pbxes.com, I switched to groove ip (negligible one-time fee) and would gladly have paid triple what I did for the app. For those who wish to use a voip provider to interface with google voice (such as pbxes), I highly recommend csipsimple instead of sipdroid, but to each their own. My overall cost was $5 (and totally worth it), month to month is $0.

I'm really looking forward to V1.2.2, I thought essentially all developing had ceased for the ally, so I was pleasantly surprised.

I loved csipsimple, but something happened and it caused me to switch back to Sipdroid ... I can't remember what it was ... I think it's time to try again; thanks for reminding me about a great app. One time fee? I'll check into Groove IP as well.

The ICS Launcher keeps crashing a lot and says it fells to respond and it does sleep mod some times and if i have a app runing of any kind and then put it in sleep mode it will keep crashing like every 3 to 5 mints and win it crashes if i press the back button it will load every app but the home screen and to get the home screen working like it did i have to press the home button like a lot of times and the app angry birds pulls up the games menu almost ever 10 to 15 secs and the angry birds app reboots every 2 mints

but thats all that i have had happen to me testing the rom right now if i find any thing it is also doing i will post it as will

...........................Edit................

The Calender is blank win i open it up it there is not a thing there you just see the name of the mouth and the days of the week and no dates are there at all just a white blank page

Yeah, the calendar never worked on 1.2 for me either, not that it's something I'd use that much anyway.

[QUOTE=leerpsp;3800911]The ICS Launcher keeps crashing a lot and says it fells to respond and it does sleep mod some times and if i have a app runing of any kind and then put it in sleep mode it will keep crashing like every 3 to 5 mints and win it crashes if i press the back button it will load every app but the home screen and to get the home screen working like it did i have to press the home button like a lot of times and the app angry birds pulls up the games menu almost ever 10 to 15 secs and the angry birds app reboots every 2 mints

ICS Launcher appears to be working fine for me. I've had no problems yet, but then again I wipe EVERYTHING, (I start at the bottom - Dalvik-cache, then /system, then /sdcard/.android_secure, then /cache, then /data, and finally wipe ALL data/factory reset). Since I've started doing this I've not had any problems with any rom install themselves, now bugs in the rom are another story but haven't found many of those, just some minor annoyances that are easily worked around (well so far anyways).

Most should already know that you always make a nandroid first, back-up your sdcard to your computer (both of these steps should always be done) then you should wipe EVERYTHING (sometimes even twice before installing), this way you hopefully will have a flawless install which will prevent a lot of problems later. Just my two cents - since I've started doing this I've never had any problems installing roms, and with titanium backup it's easy to restore your apps (but never system stuff)

Hopefully most newbies (myself included) will do these steps to insure as smooth of a install as is possible.

savoxis - are the script servers down? I've tried several times to update my scripts but keep getting could not connect to server or server not found errors. After I had updated to Script 39 on Velocity 1.2 after that I could never connect anymore, is there something I'm missing?

Another thing I think you could change would be the color of the notifications font in the drop down because they're black and so is the background and you can't read it at all

Script 39 does connect - it takes a bunch of tries sometimes, but I am getting "No such file or directory" errors. It's preventing me from using any script that has to dial out, e.g. "Fetching online database."

Not sure if this will be redundant, but I'm pretty sure I'll be posting a logcat either tonight or tomorrow morning.

Edit: couldn't get to it today. Will try tonight.

The Calender is blank win i open it up it there is not a thing there you just see the name of the mouth and the days of the week and no dates are there at all just a white blank page[/QUOTE]

I tried mine - yes it's white but I think the boxes and dates inside are also white. I touched several areas on my screen which pulled up different days, so it's all there - you just can't see them. Maybe a setting or the font colors need to be reset or changed.

I really have no use for the stock calendar anyway ... I don't think it even syncs with Google Calendar. Business Calendar Free all the way!

Did you flash an Amon Ra recovery before you flashed 1.2.1?
Are you holding Phone+Menu+Power from PowerOn?

Fastboot is capable of flashing, but I don't feel technically adept in giving you a step by step for this particular phone/setup/scenario ... because if you do it wrongly, then you could brick your phone, and I've never flashed from fastboot.

Here is a guide from cyanogen; use at your own risk: Fastboot - CyanogenMod Wiki

Any time you use clockwork mod you need to flash the recovery (which ever you choose) at least twice, sometimes three times, to get it to "stick". Both of my Ally's I had to flash it multiple times before it stuck.

I saw this was said earlier but i highly recommend it, changing the color of the text in the drop down notification bar to white since its hard to read black on black!

I download the beta rom just now. I currently have Velocity 1.2.1.

I rebooted into recovery and wiped dalvik-cache. I then proceeded to flash the new rom from sdcard and then got the following errors:

Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:Wrong digest:
system/bin/su
E:Verification failed

Zip verification failed!
Zip isn't signed correctly!

I downloaded the rom again, but ran into the same problem.

Before you flash you need to accept something that says like change zip signature or something like that. you will know it when you see it. Doing this will allow you to flash the ROM

One thing I've noticed on beta 11, if you are using browser (or have any program running) and it goes to sleep, when you wake it up ICS Launcher will FC. But if you don't have any programs running when it wakes up it will Launch just fine. Also I've noticed that if you use the stock browser and hit the home key and put it to sleep (after home screen loads) upon you waking it up the browser is running full screen and ICS Launcher will FC. If you use the back button to back out of the browser it does not do this.

This is on beta 11, standard as it was unzipped, OC'd max 729 min 245 Smartass Governor.

I'd run a logcat as it does this everytime, but I'm not that savy yet, I'll see about getting it so I can make logcats to upload to you.

I've run into the same problem with ICS Launcher with beta 11 and 13. I'll go afk when I have messaging or email up and as I return I get a message about ICS Launcher FCing.

Another issue I seem to have is that when I slide my keyboard out the home screen and apps screen doesn't rotate 90 degrees like it should.

You can get a copy of your logcat by issuing this command from the terminal inside the velocity toolkit.

logcat > /sdcard/logfile.txt

Here's a copy of my logcat logcat - Pastebin.com

Flashed beta 13. Did not wipe /data. Did wipe: /cache, /dalvik-cache, battery stats. Could I get a quick changelog? Will wipe data upon request.
