Thanks m8.

quote from first post regarding eq settings.

Quote:
EQ Settings Mod
My EQ Mods are no longer compatible with the new build -- they make no difference in sound.
BUT,
I have been working on modifying Beats Audio for the R720, and so far I have yet to crash any DSP manager I've installed.
People are welcome to try it, but be forwarned, there is no revert method yet!! So if you decide you dont like it, then you'll have to reflash the ROM, or restore from a backup.

Will be packing up an update this evening. Should be ready in a few hours.

Revision 2.3.10

Addressing the following:
Updated Launcher (Holo 1.1.2)
Fixed boot animation loop issue (where loop goes black after 15 sec.) -- **Requires kernel modification so a new boot image will be provided.

I'll be making an upgrade zip for current ROM users so theres no need to redownload the ROM - just flash the upgrade, and you're all up to date.

Cheers.

One thing I'd like is to be able to make a 3rd call with the same phone app. I tried adding a new call, but the only way to do that is by pressing adding call and going into the stock android phone app

I've_never known another way, and it's all in the same phone apk.
Make call #1
Once in call, click Add Call
Select number and dial
Press Merge calls.

Had to make a few changes/revisions to my ROM.
Because of certain modifications you will be required to re-download the ROM (cannot make an upgrade zip). Please use TIBackup to backup your apps, and re-download rom. Sorry for the inconvenience, but enjoy

Revision 2.3.11
Changes:
  • DSP Manager added to /system
  • APN BackupRestore moved to /data (for easy removal if wanted)
  • Updated core system files (performance overhaul)
  • Some Kernel modifications (testing to help various reboot issues)

EXT4 has given it a major performance boost - it breezes through zip files instead of hanging, Im not sure if its still worth considering removing media scanner but at least you could give them the option to enable/ disable it with a patch - its a simple file rename if i recall correctly. Dont forget to post the default directories though for media. I didnt really test the speed difference fully as i couldnt put my principle sd card in as I would have lost my offline maps cache. Additionally Im certain it wasnt sticking anymore when i pulled down the notifications window.

I still prefer stock aesthetically speaking with the stock notications window and stock wallpapers which is one of the reasons why i stick with it (Assuming there is still only one wallpaper option). I still think you should import the non-muse stock wallapapers. I know your trying to pitch it but I still think you should give people the option to have a stock notifications window. Another option could be to put something less obtrusive in the top bar alongside phone service info in the notifications window???

Your EQ setting worked on mine when applied, i did copy the audio directory (only) over manually though. It burped on first boot but was fine after that (probably updated something that didnt match), sound settings were applied - i dont like your new one - incidentally, it sounded rough and i doubt you could improve much on the beats one anyhow o).

I remember when i applied your EQ patch to stock it burped in the same manner at startup, i didnt see if it worked on reboot though. I just restored and copied over manaually that time too and it was fine.

Not a problem but the Battery level disappears while charging??? ive seen this icon before somewhere (miui????)so im sure its built into an app somewhere and not much can be done about, seems odd though.

If I ever get development rights to XDA im going to try and get one of them over there to do a gps fix as some have done for other samsung phones. Particularly with regards to displaying/ using sats irrespective of their db level (not my gps hardware problem). YOu can see this by turning on gps near a window or other less than ideal conditions (and seeing how many sats are displayed), compared to getting a fix outside and then going to the same place next to the window inside - youll have a lot more sats albeit at a lower db rating (with a fix generally possible). This is only an example but applies to any situation where conditions are more adverse. I think sats can be displayed at around 10db and used at around 12/13db, with ours there not showing till at least 20db and in use first time is higher. Im going to wait till my phone is fixed first too.

If you havent, Ill alter the bluetooth menu option myself after the final release.

I didnt get any update options for holo btw.

Good work, nice to see someone sticking with a project right the way through instead of dumping it after a short period of time.

I can't seem to download from play store anymore. I get an error '492'. Did I do something wrong?

I learned error 492 the hard way. You have to wipe everything when installing these roms otherwise I think the cache partition becomes corrupt.

Wipe user data. Wipe cache part. Then mounts and storage and wipe everything except SD card. Wipe dalvik. Install. After install make sure you can download from the play store. Then you can restore via titanium.

Ive run into 492 twice and followed these steps and have no problems now. Good luck

* I'd also like to add that this seems to be the fastest working revision yet. Nice job Spz0. Can you elaborate at all what core files you updated for this revision? Just out of curiosity.

I've got an idea or 2 about how to curb this. Need to do some testing first though.
I've got our niece and nephew over this weekend, so not going to have time to work on anything I think.
Keep y'all posted.

You're using stock over this rom? You're crazy.

I'll probably update to this ROM in awhile. I'm on SPZ0's last revision and honestly I've had no issues and I'm sick of flashing new updates... Thanks for sticking to it, SPZ0. You rock.

Ive run into 492 twice and followed these steps and have no problems now. Good luck

* I'd also like to add that this seems to be the fastest working revision yet. Nice job Spz0. Can you elaborate at all what core files you updated for this revision? Just out of curiosity.
Yep that did it. Thanks

I too have to say this is one fast revision. Loading times are just awesome on the phone now. Even less lag on cpu hungry apps

Got something in the works with the 492 error. Think it has something to do with cache not being properly unmounted before formatting /flashing. Hopefully it will be ready by the next revision.

If I recall correctly clearing data for both google services framework and google play, rebooting and waiting an hour should clear this too.

You phone probably doesnt like 900Mhz.
I've packed up Voltage Control app into a flashable zip.
Download it and flash through CWM, then try to navigate to it once you're booted, and change the Max value to 800Mhz and apply.

Hope that helps!

Hey Spz0, the ROM works great. I love it bro. I can't wait for the next update ;D You should try playing with the Phone.apk, and change the colors of the input boxes, the loading bars, and volume. The only problem I seem to be having is that I can use the MMS fix, but it stops working after a reboot. I deleted the stock Messaging app, and reloaded the APNs and like I said, It worked once, then I rebooted, and it stopped working. I guess I'll just load the Stock SMS backup.

Just another update: I'll be releasing another revision to my ROM (probably tomorrow). An Upgrade will be available.

Things changed:
-Moar Kernel Modifications
--adjusted threshold for better responsiveness
--defaulted CPU at 800Mhz (for those having issues with booting at 900Mhz)

-attempting a fix of the "492 Market error"
-added Voltage Control (for cpu frequency control) --although I still recommend setCPU.

Got family over atm that I've been neglecting, so I will release this update as soon as I can. So hang in there everyone who is having issues @ 900Mhz -- Help is on the way.

Revision up!

New Changes:
Revision 2.3.12
  • cpu up/down threshold changed in kernel (increase snappiness)
  • cpu defaulted to 800Mhz on boot (for people having issues booting @ 900Mhz)
  • Voltage Control app added to scale CPU (although I still highly recommend setCPU)
  • Attempting fix of "492 Market Error" (Only on Full ROM)

UPGRADE AVAILABLE! Check Post#1 for all downloads and upgrades.

Cheers.

Quick update: I forgot to adjust the OA graphic that people were talking about reducing in size.
SO
I've ammended the change to the UPGRADE.zip as well as the full rom release -- so if the graphic bugs you, just flash the UPGRADE zip for the reduced size graphic.

ALSO, I wanted to bring to peoples attention (as it was late last night and I forgot a crucial description), that my attempt at fixing the 492 market error exists only in the full rom release (and if it works, will continue in all full rom releases).

Hopefully this will be the last update before my 2.3.7 port (so you'll be able to sit on this revision for a good while. ).

Cheers all.

nice update but just since you started with this ROM, you have not done the fix of special characters in Spanish language, maybe I'm the only one who wants this, and I do not know much about how I do it myself, but if your bearings me where can I investigate and fix this
Thanks!

I registered awhile back here, but would have done it again just to say thank you a zillion for this rom. Turned my anemic Vitality into snappy responsive lil' beast again. Until I move to a heavy hitter, this phone + your rom = awesomesauce.

Oh, I am a "go"-head, and it rocks just fine with that set of apps as well. I drive a taxi, so this thing is my bread/n/better for regular customers, and now I'm not griping about laggy apps. Keep it up and again, thank you x 1000!

First off, thanks for putting this together. Sadly, I'm having symptoms similar to those described by skierz:

My first boot went pretty well - I only use my phone with wifi, so I put it on airplane mode and set up my wireless connection. At first I could connect to the Play store, but it would force close on me (no prompt to choose between waiting and closing, just buzzing) and subsequent boots result in freezing before I'm able to do much of anything.

I also attempted to change the CPU to 800 mhz max with the same results. I cleared the data, formatted everything but the SD card, and reinstalled but still have the same problem.

I made a backup, but I'd certainly prefer to use this over stock. Any suggestions?

See my previous quote, try this.

If I recall correctly clearing data for both google services framework and google play, rebooting and waiting an hour should clear this too.

I forgot to mention that I tried it before my last flash. This last boot has yet to freeze on me for the last fifteen minutes or so, but the Play store still force closes on me without warning after clearing the data as you described again since the last flash.

Thanks for chiming in.

If it says a vending is force closing then it could be the play installtion itself, ive had this problem before myself too.

No worries

Good luck

So far running at 480mhz is stable. No freezes whatsoever. Going back up to 800mhz causes freezes and vibrating. Can't reboot or power off because it gets bumped back up to 800 or 900mhz and takes a few tries to get it boot fully and correctly in order to set it back to 480mhz.

I did try going back to stock and starting over but it didn't help.

I love the ROM though. So far it's worth running at 480mhz because it's so f u c king awesome.

NO ROM has been stable on my Admire except for Admiral Beast.

After all this flashing back and forth my camera doesn't work anymore and I have that yellow triangle on boot up. And I have the E:can't mount cache ect.... shit while in CWM

Im not sure why you are all having so many problems with freezes and burps. This ROM was stable a few revisions ago when I tried it, so im not sure if spz0 made a few changes that have caused some instability or there are hardware problems with your phones.

You didnt say how you flashed back to stock was that a recovery ???? Its probabaly best you flash it to stock with this.

install cwm 7 not 8, and then restore your stock backup.

Found out today that GPS causes my phone to freeze and vibrate while down at 480mhz.



I used Odin to flash back to stock from here....[ACS] THE ODIN THREAD: Return to stock

then I installed CWM 7 then CWM 8 then OA ROM

I have an Admire on Metro P. O. S.

Sorry i was a little confused i didnt realise you were reflashing to go back to OA I thought you were trying to go back to your stock backup. You could try the link i provided anyway, that is a complete install of stock. I cant understand why your phone will not work at 800mhz, flash stock fresh above and see if that works, if it does and his doesnt work at 800/900mhz then their must be something wrong with the OA rom. He seems to be busy with other things at the moment as he hasnt been on for a few days (i think hes onto 2.3.7). You also try other frequencies, why 480mhz??? Another option is to flash an older revision. I do have a copy so maybe if you have no joy I could post it as a temp solution.

Edit; actually you cant flash our one unless its for a short period as its for cricket not metropcs.

I am running at 480mhz because voltage control goes from 900 to 800 down to 480. VERY STRANGE!!! There is no setting between 800 and 480. It's either 800 or 480.

The plot thickens... on some boots I've noticed that the freezing that seems to occur is really the phone not displaying the app or utility I just opened. As an example, I opened the drawer and chose Voltage Control, the usual popup indicates that it has been granted super user permission, but the screen continues to show the drawer. When I press the home button it shows the Voltage Control window, but I can't interact with it. This behavior was been consistent during this last boot, but at least I'm able to rotate the screen so it redraws. Changing the CPU to 480 mhz makes no difference with this issue.

This last boot seems to be working much better, though. I've been able to do more stuff in the Play store without it closing on me. Maybe reinstalling CWM, clearing everything but the SD card, and reflashing did the trick.
