Is there any possible way to compile tun.ko drivers into this ROM so we can use OpenVPN?
A known issue is keeping PPTP from working correctly on the Ally so OpenVPN is my only hope for getting good VPN going on the phone.

Has anyone gotten OpenVPN working on their Ally? And if not, wouldn't it be sweet if you could?

BTW: This is a great ROM and thank you for all your work!

Personally I don't like the circle battery icon. I like the current one. The circle doesn't blend well with the rest of the notification bar icons.

For anyone having the gmail sync issue I have found a solution.

Go to Settings->Applications->Manage applications
Open Gmail Storage and "Clear data"
Then open Gmail and "Clear cache"

Mail should start to automatically sync to the phone again.

Let me know if it works for you!
And don't forget the thanks button

Pretty sure this issue is because the dalvik cache wasnt cleared before flashing. There are 3 places you need to wipe in CLockwork Recov: Data, Cache Partition, and dalvik cache,

The dalvik is in the advanced menu

Sorry, meant to type clear data for both. Try that and see if it helps.

@trident I would like to see you add the spare parts that is modded by pete. It has a color picker to change the color of the clock on the notification bar very easily. I tried looking but failed.

Yeah that would be really nice =/, I would want that too because changing the color of the clock without spare parts modded requires modification of the ROM, thats a pain.

Very nice rom otherwise. Thanks much!

trident can you MOD the ROM and give us different colors for clock, I can do it too but I was wondering if you could somehow make it where we can chose colors, here is a tutorial on color changing you think you can build a little app or something to let us change the font color inside the app:

Pretty sure it doesn't..
In fact, I know it doesn't. I'm testing Bugless Beast 0.5 for Pete right now and the Spare Parts app included does not have that option.

Hey guys

Just flashed this rom. Working great.

A few improvements:

You can benefit from smoother scrolling by using the windowsmgr fix and also enable jit with no ill effects

Using ADB pull your build.prop:

abd pull /system/build.prop

add this line to the end of the file:
windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=60

This will enable smoother scrolling.

Next, find the following line to enable jit:
#dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit
and uncomment it by removing the # before it

Save the file and push back to /system/build.prop

reboot and your phone should be a little more responsive

I was having some permission denied errors when pushing the build.prop back via adb, so here's what i did:
(this part is optional, if your phone pushes the build.prop fine, then don't worry about this)

adb shell
$ su
# mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/stl5 /system
# cd sdcard
# busybox cp -R build.prop /system
# mount -t rfs -o remount,ro /dev/stl5 /system
# sync
# reboot

Enjoy

This is pretty cool! Thought I'd jump in and root my Ally today and flash this ROM. I used Universal Androot to root the phone (worked flawlessly) and installed ROM Manager for this ROM. Has similar issues that others have seen (FC's, etc.), but after rebooting, I was able to perform the necessary functions. Backed up stock ROM, and got this puppy working! Ally is A LOT smoother now without all the VZW crap running on it.

Looking forward to exploring this whole thing more.

The spare parts I'm referring to is included in cm6 not bb, but I could be wrong.

Also would be interested to hear how well the ally will do with jit enabled.

Edit: I will be donating once I get a paypal account set up. Can't have you working like a slave for nothing.

It runs fine, you should try the edits to the build.prop i posted earlier. this will enable jit and smooth out scrolling issues.

if you dont want to edit the file yourself, ive attached the modified build.prop (in a zip file since you cant attach .prop files to the forum) to this post

simply extract the zip and push the build.prop using adb to /system/build.prop

reboot

cheers

if you have permission errors pushing the build.prop to /system/ try theses steps:


adb shell
su
mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/stl5 /system
cd sdcard
busybox cp -R build.prop /system
mount -t rfs -o remount,ro /dev/stl5 /system

thats entirely up to the what sort of framework or library changes. most of the time wipes are standard practice in the rom flashing business.

i would recommend using adw or launcher pro and back up your desktop configuration so you can restore after wiping and install titanium backup to restore your apps

contacts should be synced up to your gmail.

also remember nandroid backups are your friend!

I had to reflash 0.1.1 over 0.1.1 once because I got stupid with CM6 and it worked fine without wiping data, so i guess if its exact same ROM it wont be a problem, but the next build you'll probably have to wipe all data, but like others said backups are your friend =), i have everything backed up so I can restore everything within seconds after a new ROM

to those having trouble w/ the busybox command, make sure the build.prop is in the sd card, the sd card is not mounted in the computer, and you are in the adb shell of the phone

also, make sure you are cd into /sdcard/ and can see build.prop in the root of your sdcard with ls

then try to

busybox cp -R build.prop /system


alternatively if that doesnt work maybe try adb push build.prop /system/build.prop

you absolutely do not want the sd card mounted as the phone wont be able to access it....

try this:
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
exit
adb push build.prop /system/build.prop (if the build.prop is in the same directory as adb)

alternatively if its on the sdcard maybe try:
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd sdcard
busybox cp -R build.prop /system

if you dont want to edit the file yourself, ive attached the modified build.prop (in a zip file since you cant attach .prop files to the forum) to this post

simply extract the zip and push the build.prop using adb to /system/build.prop

reboot

cheers

if you have permission errors pushing the build.prop to /system/ try theses steps:


adb shell
su
mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/stl5 /system
cd sdcard
busybox cp -R build.prop /system
mount -t rfs -o remount,ro /dev/stl5 /system
sync
reboot
Guys.. this does not work. Don't you think if it were that easy, I would have already done it?

Enabling JIT require making a port of the JIT Compiler and including it in the curent Dalvik VM and then editing the build.prop.

Enabling Smooth Scrolling is a very tricky procedure as well and certainly not just a build.prop edit.

Sorry to burst this bubble..

Velocity 0.2 is coming along. Very large update planned, give him time, and just keep watching!

Stuff like this isnt fast, especially when your a lone designer.

Oh no pushing at all and I'll give donations in the future, he made the LG Ally alive, he deserves the credit and a Red Bull that he's been craving.

Also I wanted to ask if I can help test?

When we click something on android 2.1 it gets highlighted/turns yellow can you change it to like dark blood red to match the Droid X buttons that are in this ROM, like when you click the app drawer arrow it turns blood red, can you do that for everything =D.
Use LauncherPro. For over a month now you have been able to change the icon highlight style and color.

Yeah but you guys are not considering the fact that running an app to theme your system vs theme'd ROM, I like speed > looks, theme'd ROM doesn't use more resources because its how the system is made, running an app is just throwing out ur RAM, no thank you.

LauncherPro is what i use, and its faster than the stock one from what i've noticed.

Highly recommended.
