Default CM9

Hey All,

On my old Droid X I LOVED CM7. Now I've read getting CM9 to work on Rezound has not been so good. Still seems like some are stable now. I'm wondering, have any of you used a stable CM9?

The big things I would require to use it is:
Netflix/Streaming video
Bluetooth Phone/Media
Camera
Obviously:
Phone
4g/3g
messaging etc.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

cm9 actually is pretty stable,the last bug is bluetooth calls. media works fine- i can listen to pandora or iheartradio with no prollems. there were apparently some multi-touch issues that i didnt notice since im not a big gamer,but those look to be fixed now.

i only used it for a couple hours becasue i gotta have BT,but it seemed fast,smooth and stable.

if youve got a a few spare hours to try it you wont need BT defiantely give it a shot.

hopefully the BT bug is close to being fixed also,in the AOSP development thread someone said he was going to test a fix. keepin fingers crossed

regular phone calls,sms,and mms were all fine for me. data was stable the short time i ran it,and gps locked right away on over 9 satelites.

Fair enough. If you hear about a version with stable blue tooth, want to post here? I'll do the same.

I really do like Nils Business sense with Sense 4.0 (Vs. 2.6 is currently installed as of yesterday). Very stable, functional, and everything works. That being said, a stable CM9 with everything working would be AWESOME!!

I flashed GrayWolf's CM9 build tonight, since they report the bluetooth wakelock is fixed. I will report soon on how it's running.

I been running Le noob cm9 but all my audio is mono. I mentioned it in that megathread but nobody has acknowledged it so I'm guessing it's just me..
Haven't tried any other cm9 builds and I think I'm gonna try out a sense 4 rom next..

Don't all of these AOSP roms have the issues where if you accidently go into network settings you lose data on the ROM till you flash back to a sense ROM?

my understanding was if you changed the setting to something other than lte/cdma you would not be able to change it back without reflashing the rom.

i havent heard that bit about having to flash back to a sense rom.

If this is the case I might be willing to give it a try. My understanding was that if you went into your network settings you lost data. That sounded too icky for me :P

I'm using IAmTheOneTheyCallNeo's "Rage" CM9 ROM, and it doesn't have the bug with network settings. I lost 4G once (just went down to 3G) and turning on Airplane mode and then back off made 4G work again. Supposedly AOKP-based ROMS are the ones that have that issue the most.

Call quality has been a little scratchy, but not too annoying, but the new Rage 1.7 supposedly has some tweaks. Try it out, it's smooth.

Have you tried 1.7? Any info on how it runs and call quality? I can't do it without bluetooth and bt calling so I'm not sure if I want to try it quite yet.

So I think I might have time to give rage a try this weekend. Is there anything I need to know going to an aosp rom? Can I still wipe and install a backup of my current rom if I'm unhappy with it? Or does it change to much and would require like an ruu or something?

Thanks!

nope,its just a simple rom flash. the only thing different is the fact that AOSP roms will usually require a seperate flash of google proprietary apps

-fastboot boot amon
-make backup
-full wipe
-flash rom
-flash gapps
-reboot

if you dont like it,it is as simple as resrtoring a working backup.

im starting to be extremely agitated with the persistance of this BT prollem. i hope it gets worked out soon,as i cant live without it either.

i havent run anything recently,but even the early roms were really smooth and stable.

Sounds like the rage thing has worked out the bt issues? Reading through the latest release notes sounds like call quality is greatly improved. I'll let you know when I get time to install what I find out.

Well I ended up leaving town for the weekend with an ipad and my rezound, so the earliest I'd flash is Monday. I'm either flashing newts updated xXX, or rage. I guess you will have to let me know!

Call quality is better with rage 1.8, but voice over blue tooth is still not fixed. Data over blue tooth works tho.

I've been running RAGE for about three weeks now, it's very stable and saves battery life over a sense rom but in my experience not a huge difference. The big plus is the pure Google experience, hard to describe but it's just cleaner and less laggy than sense can be, just fits my brain if that makes sense.

I do miss the really nice HTC Sense camera, however, the AOSP camera isn't as easy to use and depending on the rom, may lack face detection and auto focus features that HTC camera has.

I gave it a shot today anyway. I thought I'd see how it works. Rage looks AWESOME. Run's super smooth. Only ran it for about a half hour then ran a restore of Newts XxX. I really am sad that the bluetooth voice doesn't work because I would be switched immediately and permanently onto CM9. I really hope someone puts together a CM9 based rom that has working BT!!!

Also the SD cards being switched messed with me. I couldn't figure out how to get mybackup pro to use the other SD card to find my backups.

The other sdcard partition, aka /sdcard2 in sense, is now called /emmc in CM9

I use TiBu, but you should be able to just change your backup location in your apps preferences.

I am no expert but it seems like the blue tooth bug is a firmware level issue caused by HTC not releasing source for all of what it considers sense. Like, they wrote a custom driver for blue tooth that only works with a sense rom installed. Maybe it's something that can be fixed, like how using the front camera with AOSP used to not work but now it does.

Default How do you get apps on CM9?

I installed a CM9 Linaro from over at XDA. It was cool, but I couldn't figure out how to do anything such as load apps like Google Play Store so I could download all my other apps. How does one do that? Do I have to get the Play Store .apk file and install it somehow? I guess the bigger concern is if any of my apps would work on CM9.

There should be a link with the type of rom you installed for gapps. That will install all the standard Google apps. I haven't run much cm9, but when I ran cm7 on my old DROID x I was able to do titanium restores of all my apps no problem. It's just a different version of android so you shouldn't have any problems. Just make sure you don't restore any system files (home screen, and bt settings, wifi profiles etc.) a lot of that probably won't work if you restore because the file layouts are switched.

Also, keep in kind that on cm9 the SD cards are switched (internal shows as external and vice versa) , so titanium or my backup pro won't find your backups until you change the backup location.

Just FYI, I'm still running CM9-Rage 1.9. Still no blue tooth fix, but it now has the Jellybean 4.2 camera included. :-) and very stable other than aforementioned issue that's keeping my favorite android guru scotty85 from switching over to the good stuff B-)
