    Just so you know, your link has a typo and is therefore broken.

    Just got done flashing and restoring all my data only to find out init.d isn't working.

    Your right. Looking into it now, and I hope to have it fixed soon

    This rom is very resistant to any changes. I've tried to implement init.d two different ways now an neither work

    I now know what I did wrong. I will have it fixed tonight

    I'm not sure if this had anything to do with the changes you made in the ROM or the fact that I restored my apps via nandroid manager, but when I would restart my device it couldn't see any access points that were saved, so I had to restart Wi-Fi and then it would connect, also, I use a battery app that keeps the percentage always visible to me and I use batteryguru, the battery saving app by Qualcomm for snapdragon processors, and the battery app would display the correct percentage, but batteryguru would display the same percentage as when it started.

    Version 0.3.10 is up and init.d is fixed. Sorry about the mix up


    It's nandoridmanager. Some apps just don't like being restored. The new update is safe to flash over the previous version.

    What about the fact that my phone didn't always vibrate when I touched it? Could it have been due to an app too?
    And it's safe as in I don't have to wipe and restore the apps?

    I've never seen an issue like that with the app, and the feedback works fine on my device. I always do a clean install and download my apps. Don't flash the new version yet. I have one last tweak to make, so I'm taking down the link for now.

    New link is up. init.d is working. This will likely be the last update for DS until we get the JB update. I'm going to take some time now to focus on the development of Matrix Kernel since it will benefit both DS and the CM project. I will continue to support this rom, and updates will be available for bug fixes.

    Now when ever I restart it freezes at the green android.
    Oh and while you're at it you should make msm-dcvs the default governor.
    BTW you forgot to insert your dual core script. And does this ROM zipalign?
  14. jimsmith80

    jimsmith80 Well-Known Member


    The dualcore script didn't have any measurable effect, so I removed it. I think this is because ZTE uses a special kernel module to regulate the CPU. This is being written out of my kernel, but its still a work in progress. The rom is zipaligned at the build phase, and I have not included a script to run zipalign at start up.


    I just installed the latest update on my own force and it booted without any issues. You may have gotten a bad download. I put an MD5 in the OP so you can verify.
  15. donjuro

    donjuro Well-Known Member Developer

    Just checked md5 and it checked out OK. Only thing I did after I flashed was put my own scripts in the init.d folder and it keeps me at the green android.

    That sounds like an issue with the scripts, and not the rom. What scripts are you trying to run, and where did you get them?

    Look at your scripts. The Force is a dual core, so you have to set perameters for cpu0 and cpu1.

    Please be specific when reporting bugs. Your initial post made it look like that the rom would not boot. While that may be the case the issue was due to incorrect scripting and not the rom it self
  19. donjuro

    donjuro Well-Known Member Developer

    But I'm using these scripts perfectly fine on one of the older builds.
    It's true though that after I insert these scripts and reboot my phone, the phone doesn't go past the green android, I thought it would at least get to the animated booting screen.
    I'll edit the scripts though and try it again, but can incorrectly writing the scripts really break boot?
  20. jimsmith80

    jimsmith80 Well-Known Member

    Yes. The scripts are now run at boot like they should be. If you add the lines for cpu1 they should work fine.

    Personally I just use no frills CPU for CPU settings. Back on the warp lots of folks used voltage control, and it will write the CPU scripts for you.

    I have to admit I have been running DSF for a day or two and it does run pretty good anf fairly fast. Seems to connect to the voice server faster than stock. Haven't been able to try 4g yet since I live in the woods. will pack it up with apps and test some more. Lot of recustomizing since obviously u don't use my fav ring tones and large fonting for us blind folk but if there was one thing I would like in a custom rom it would be a way to enlarge all the fonts including the dang task bar. thanks Jim. :)

    Well in my from for the warp I had added an app into the system to reset the screen resolution. I may be able to adapt it to thee force.

    well the 4G works great :D and something i am missing from stock that i would love to see come to ds is the swipe ability for the keyboard that made some things so much easier and overall i love the rom, Keep up the good work :smokingsomb:
