Maybe you guys can start a petition =P
tdm - I thought the ICS release was V20c for the P930 and V10f was the gingerbread?
It is, we don't have 3.0 kernel source yet, so why compare 3.0 kernel to a 2.6.35 kernel? So he is comparing 2.6.35 for the p930 to 2.6.35 for the spectrum
My bad, I thought he was using the ICS kernel source from the P930
I am comparing 2.6.35 vs920 to 2.6.35 p930 in order to see what the differences are in the kernel sources between the two devices. This tells us what needs to be applied to the 3.0.8 p930 kernel (or rather, what might need to be applied -- many of the differences are just minor edits for whitespace and such).
Awesome work guys. Very appriciative and excited to see what comes in the future. Keep up the great work!
Now I don't care for the ics update I would way rather have this!
Thanks tdm and death2all and everyone else taking all of your time working on something that is very hard to do, I appreciate it, thanks so much!!!
Agreed. I tried cm9 and cm10 on my Transformer and I really don't notice a difference. I think it's more firmware than a esthetic.
I went back to your original post and I see where I read it wrong.
Guess I got so excited about the progress being made!
depends is cm10 stable for it and it also depends on the rom.. also about the droid RAZR having better signal, I don't know if they do this with Motorola's to but htcs have something in them that don't tell you when you are roaming until a certain point therefor better signal ( from what I've been told) I do believe its true because I've had some developers put a mod in roms that shows true signal and its just horrible. So that's something to take into consideration also the moto RAZR has ics. Ics has better signal then GB from what I've seen on roms on my past phones... I could be wrong. Again though IMO
Lol.. I got a bad behind rom called alien droid for my nook tablet complete gui customization and jb what more could you want? infact I'm updating it tomorrow.
There is a definite difference between cm9 and cm10. Not so much visually but in smoothness and general performance there is a big distinction between the two.
Working through wifi, radio, sound, and bluetooth. Once I have those going, I'll make a test build and push to github. Should be this week, I'm pretty sure.
Thanks for keeping us informed
hell ya guys. go on a 6 day car show vacation with little hope...come back and you guys have almost cracked it!
Not exactly the case. HOWEVER, with ics, its gives the device more options with the antenna than gingerbread. For instance, the razr didnt have global or gsm mode untill the ics update. In the case of cyanogen9-10, it does give us those options and more.
That's true my gs3 is on a nightly build base ,cm 10 this one is called code name android.
That's kinda what I thought. Oddly enough, I ran some AnTuTu tests on both roms and cm9 consistently got better scores. Granted, it was only by 100-200, but I thought that was interesting. I'm much happier with little things in 10, like the notification clearing.
Been looking at wifi, radio, and sound. Summary: it's a complicated mess. I could use some help. Who are the devs here that can help out? I will create a github org for collaboration if I can get a team together.
Wifi is a bit of an issue. I think the vendor is using wpa_supplicant 0.6.x but CM9 for the p930 is using 0.8.x. Should be fixed soon, I think.
From what I see, there are two main ways to get audio working. Either use the spectrum's vendor audio libs for GB, or use the p930 vendor audio libs for ICS. It will take some work to get the GB audio libs working but I don't really know how much. Could be easy, could be hard. But the end result will be GB audio libs on ICS. I'd rather have native ICS audio, but I'm not sure if any kernel changes are required. They may require the ICS kernel drivers. So I might go back and revisit the p930 ICS kernel ... it's where I want to go anyway.
The spectrum's radio setup is ... unique. It has two rild services, presumably one for CDMA and one for GSM. This greatly complicates radio handling. It will take a bit to untangle that. But I am not using VZW so I can only test CDMA and 3G.
You might want to talk to the Droid 2 Global devs over @ Rootz. We encountered that same issue with the d2g radio and one of them figured it out. That sh*t is above my paygrade.
not to be rude but where is all the devs that people donated to get the spectrum
WE haven't heard from weblexa since he got his device. I wonder what he's up to.
