Hey ben, It works flawlessly for me so far. Made a backup with it and installed the backup it made. Everything is rocking and rolling so far. Will try installing a backup the touch recovery made and let you know how it went in Jerry's recovery thread

The touch recovery is nice, but I find myself still using the hard keys more often than not. Lol
Jerry's recovery has more advantages than the touch recovery by far.

I think he's planning on adding in touchscreen support. That's based on something he'd said in the CWMT thread before he had even released his recovery.

I have no doubt it will work but I always have a backup but it seems I've misplaced my original download of blarfs recovery

Hey, Jerry, can we have the Robotto font for the bootanimation instead the default (Times New Roman?) font we have now?

It's somewhat 8-bit and choppy looking, for now

It's actually 8bit-RAW, that's the RLE format.

Blarf to the rescue! He wrote a binary we can use to play pngs in the bootloader!

JerryScript: Could I extract the new BACKside Updater from the newest build (Not installed yet) and install it on my system in place of the old apk without any problems? Is there something I need to do other than just a straight delete and transfer?

Everyone switched to Bob's recovery a few months ago, but I'm trying to find an old copy for you.

I haven't noticed any bugs with SuperUser on the OV, so for now, I'm of the opinion "if it aint broke..."

He doesn't really state what it fixes, so I'm waiting for info.

Of course, you can follow Chainfire's instructions to install it yourself.

I'm with you on this one.
I've tried some earlier builds of supersu and it was buggy. Didn't respect its settings to not bother me with toasts and questions. And I don't care for the new features.
Superuser never gave me any problems.

It's supposed to allow you to use apps which cant work with root which I've never done with superuser so I'm going to give it a try. Looking at the thread it seems to have worked out the bugs.

Let us know how it works for you. Be interesting to see if we can run DRM on BACKside.

Still trying to figure it out, it is running much faster and smoother though. I did find a modded video app which lets us watch rentals with no work around. Don't have any rentals but it does show what's available. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1379693

Edit: clicking on available rental opens play store but just goes to main. Possibly renting from online store then using the app will work.

Looks interesting, but I can see inexperienced users totally nerfing their installations by using it wrong. I'm going to play with it a little, run it on a clean install and report back.

Oh, I have a question for Jerry. TDM's gingerkernel is being discussed as a possible fix for zv9 iho reboots. What's your opinion on this? Is there any disadvantage if I decide to use TDM's instead of bobz?

I tired SuperSU and it's pretty decent. Had to remove and reinstall it as it didn't want to setup correctly the first time. Kept getting installation failed when trying to update binary. Also a few of my apps apparently don't like it as they don't request root permission and I get permission denied. Once the bugs are ironed out I think about running it although I haven't had any issues out of superuser

Have you tried the most updated version?

Ok so I figured out the hide function, you uncheck enable super user, however I still can't get ultraviolet for flixster working. Somehow it still detects root.

Default CM7 + Green Machine = AWESOME!

Jerry, thanks for all the hard work building CM7.2 RC1 and Green Machine. I actually rooted my OV and installed your CM7. I'm still learning all the features. But it is fast, along with lots of internal memory thanks also to Link2SD. There are so many good things about it.

I also tried to flash the CWM-Green-Recovery and I got a message that said it was an invalid OV image. I was using Flash-GUI which I used successfully on my first recovery image. Just wanted to verify that the image is compatible with OV.

Thanks again for excellent work!

Dave

Default Use Backside Updater to flash images!

Jerry, I figured it out. I used Backside updater and the CWM-Green-Recovery image went in like a charm.
Thanks!

In Settings > Language & Keyboard Settings > Android Keyboard there is a setting at the bottom called Quick Fixes that will fix common errors. Didn't try it but I'd see if that does it

Hi Jerry this part of your first post is confusing:

---Updating from a previous BACKside-IHO build

2
choices. One says for builds up till January 18th (the old method). The 2nd choice is for post April 17th build(s).

What method does one use for builds between January 18th and April 17th? I'm using the Feb 6th build.

Sorry, I'll fix the dates, thanks for catching that.

Just remember, the BacksideUpdater is the fastest way to check.

Next update won't be for a few days, I'm working out a few bugs that are a bit harder to squish than usual.

I am on the newest build, currently having trouble with Wi-Fi. Whenever I first enable it, it spends about two to four minutes in limbo, unable to show a signal for ANY of the nearby hotspots. (My laptop picks up the signals just fine). It has been doing this at my home, also at my work, so I'm sure location is not the issue.

Any suggestions?

If your laptop gets a weak signal your phone might not get it. The antenna in it is allot better than your phone. Check your md5 sum of your download. If it's ok you want to do a full wipe and reflash it.
