Well I've decided to go back to Ele 6.2.0. The GPS, although much better than earlier versions is still not 100% reliable in 0.8/0.9 and this seems to be a wider Gingerbread issue on the Hero. I've liked the increased battery life and better memory management but having a reliable GPS has to take priority over those for me.

This is really cool to be having such great ongoing Hero support - I'm beginning to doubt any replacement phone will be anywhere near such fun!

I couldn't agree more. I was thinking of getting Defy here in Singapore before Xperia Play, but Hero support is really awesome >.<

It seems to be glitch-free, although I've been unable to test it thoroughly today due to another dev releasing a port of the Acer Liquid ROM for the G2/Desire Z. Too many ROMs, not enough days in the weekend!

this rom is genius. a couple annoyances like not being able to limit rotation individually through four axes (it's either on or off). can't have both vibration and silent (i think it's either or).

but here's the mysterious thing: neocore no longer shows all the graphics, only the lights and smoke in the benchmark test, and then returns a result of 50-51fps! i know the hero doesn't have a dedicated 3d graphics process but elelinux's 2.2 roms worked fine.

Default RC2 v1.5 now released

Changelog 2011-03-17

Version 1.5

Installation
Wipe of cache and dalvik cache, if you come from previous version

New installation, wipe of all!

Note:
As everyone surely knows, and surely noticed, there is a bug in 2.3.3, it leaks memory from the graphics, many are looking for the error and it was reported to Google.
But the best way so far is that, enter /menu/cm-settings/performance and tick all (Jit, Enable surface dithering (optional,but better graphics), lock home in memory, lockmessaging app in memory), and put VM heap size to the max. In tests it appears that there is a minimum chance of getting the bug to appear when using default launcher that comes with rom.

  • New build
  • Allow the system to reclaim more free RAM when needed on 'low' memory devices (in cm-settings/performance) hope this feature doing so the bug does not occur more.
  • Testing new settings for camera
  • Lots of updates in the source,including new settings for GPS
  • HTC.Elegance v2 is released,lots of new icons etc....
  • Removed the graphical modification of Launcher2, back to basic
  • Testing a more distinct multitouch
  • Added a phone hack, to make the phone ring faster when dialing out, and it also seems to affect incoming calls as well, according hi_robb delay is less now
  • + a lot of other stuff
  • Added a option for the old camera settings, if you feel that it was better

I don't think it's possible to say at the moment although I have just read that Cronos has managed to sort the graphics memory leak issues that's plaguing everyone.

I've only ever used this one so I'm unable to compare, sorry. The fact that I've never felt the need to look at others maybe says something about Elelinux's ROM, though.

They're pretty much the same, but I think cronos has slightly smoother animations than elelinux. Not the biggest difference in the world, but it makes a big difference to me.

Well I've finally got around to flashing a rom on my formally stock hero [Elelinux-7.0.0-RC2-Hero-v1.5 (2011-03-17)]
My question is CPU frequency what should I set it to? Too many options and I dont fully understand.

I'm assuming that you're looking at the CPU Settings in Settings/CyanogenMod settings/Performance.

First important thing.... DON'T check "Set on boot" until you've thoroughly tested your frequency settings.

1. Select the Smartass governor.
2. Start with the Max CPU frequency @ 652MHz and check how your various apps run.
3. Increase the frequency a step at a time, continuing to test various apps and functions.
4. When things get funky (or the handset reboots) you've reached your CPU's limit, so back it off a notch and do some extensive testing for stability. Once you're happy, move onto....
5. Set the Min CPU frequency to 254MHz and check that the handset resumes correctly from standby.
6. Decrease this to 176MHz, or even 19MHz. If you have wake issues increase it a step.
7. Once you're confident that you've found the sweet spots you can enable "Set on boot".

Going to give this a go. Cronos is beginning to annoy me, it's a bit unstable and needs updating every other bloody second.

Brilliant. This seems about as stable as a cripple on stilts. Can't even set up my Google account without the whole thing force closing.
Will try to sort it out when I wake up tomorrow.

V1.6 seems very stable to me.

Very sadly, it seems that Ele is not going to be continuing with the ROM for the time being due to a falling out yesterday with Feeyo. I hope he will keep the current links active but I would advise if you would like to give this awesome ROM a go to download it now before it's gone.

Feeyo has said he's quitting for good over this too. Let's hope they both get over it or we're not going to have any more devs left....

I kinda already knew the Hero would die on gingerbread but VR is still standing lol, at least it was kept going for 2 years. Should be dead by the end of this year since only like one person in VR still has a Hero I hear. We've probably squeezed as much life out the Hero as possible anyway, only thing left to do would be to fix bugs and clean up. Oh well....

Hero's clearly on it's last legs anyway; there isn't much more that could be done for it considering the hardware limitations, even Gingerbread seems to be a major chore for it at times.

Aye, clean wipe, everything. Just kept force closing everything when I tried to set it up, go to Market, the launcher only lasted about a minute before giving up. Had to go back to my Sense backup but will try a fresh d/l and install tonight, might of been something untoward when I downloaded it or something.

Might be getting a bit off topic here but what exactly went on between Elelinux and Feeyo that made Elelinux quit on the Hero?

Looks like Elelinux was trying to accuse Feeyo of stealing some shit before Freeyo kindly pointed out that Ele's releases coincidently came out a day after his. Looked like a bit of big geek breakdown between the two to be honest.

Why can't we all say google developed it and get along Doesn't really seem like a good reason to quit (haters are everywhere) but hey , what do I know.

I don't want the flak spilling over from XDA to here, so all I'll say is that this is some way wide of the mark. There's a lot more to it than that, much of which should have been buried six feet under long ago.

You can find that here. Take a look with your eyes and read what Feeyo and Elelinux said.
Elelinux steal Feeyo's work and put it inside his "new" roms
Thanks to this..... Feeyo STOPPED HIS WORK! This was his last sentence:
"Sorry to say guys, I am officially stopping my releases. I have had it now for real."

Not quite sure why you posted this, especially given my previous quoted comment. However, seeing as you went on to post this....

....I suggest that you get your facts straight before attempting to start flame wars. Go read this post by Feeyo in his own forum.

v. 1.7.1 already!

anyone else get weird messages when connecting to a PC with USB? something about a large number of SMS messages being sent - text overlaid ontop of the android robot over the button to turn on USB drive? In the pulldown menu the USB also looks like random symbol characters.

uploaded a couple of pics about what i mean. first the pull down shade and then the screen that shows when you select USB

Something's not right, as that "Default" should read "USB connected".

Try a wipe of the cache + dalvik-cache from recovery and see if that fixes it after a reboot. If not I'd suggest a full wipe.

Yes I read about this issue with incorrect notifications in 'the big thread'. There are some local language issues, what language are you using?

[ROM]Elelinux-7.0.0-RC4-Hero-v1.7.1 (2011-04-01) - Page 179 - xda-developers
[ROM]Elelinux-7.0.0-RC4-Hero-v1.7.1 (2011-04-01) - Page 150 - xda-developers
[ROM]Elelinux-7.0.0-RC4-Hero-v1.7.1 (2011-04-01) - Page 148 - xda-developers

Not sure if this comment was related to that:

But I would give that patch a try anyway.

:EDIT:
Hmm, I can't actually see what patch he was referring to. I'd suggest posting with the issue in the big thread on XDA to see if there was a fix. Make sure you have done a complete wipe and fresh install to see if the problem still occurs before you do that though.

I couldn't flash the new release until I got home from work last night, and I always test to see that the ROM works as expected before encouraging others to d/l and install it.

Having said that, v1.9 is working fine here - no problems noted.

Default V2.0 released

Changelog 2011-04-17

Version 2.0

EDIT: Unfortunately it seems that it will be wipe of everything to make it work

Installation Wipe of cache and dalvik cache, if you come from previous version.
Hope that any way, cyanogen added a database verifier, but removed it again

New installation wipe of all

The bug in the test version for cpu load was my own,was the new testsettings for the GPS

  • New Build 20110415.224211
  • Lots of updates language etc
  • Lots of small fixes
  • Many test compilations how to build to avoid the famous bug
  • Adding a patch for the bug for thoose who want it
  • This build is by default for smooth an fast animations etc.. if you turn off all animations and so probably does not the bug occur , but if the bug would occur then the flash patch
--------------------------------------------------
Note: a factory reset (full wipe) is mandatory for this release. Wiping only cache + dalvik-cache and flashing over the previous release WILL result in a failure to boot. You have been warned!

That said, V2.0 seems more responsive than V1.9. Battery useage and performance is as good as previous versions - 83% remaining after six hours use in the stock configuration i.e. everything enabled and overclocked 691/19 using the smartass governor.
