Derp, don't see why that wouldn't work.
Not sure but you can't put a file into an .apk file (which is basically an zip file). You can only put a file in a directory.
Also, unless I did something wrong, OMBG's power_profile.xml is exactly the same.
Yup, it seems it is. Exactly the same in fact.
I've been a flash-a-holic today. Went from Miui to revnumber's unofficial cm7 but left because of the Netflix issue. At lunch I flashed Liquid Gingerbread 2.6. Left it because I kept getting my launcher wanting to close or wait. Was told that CM7 nightly 40 didn't have any wifi issues or Netflix problems...so currently I'm on it. So in the span of 10 hrs I have been on 4 different ROM's and set each up from scratch. I was bored at work. If the new miui release fixes a few things I'll be back to it.
I've been poking around some other threads and it looks like something in the official nightlies broke Netflix because it doesn't even work on the latest official.
The latest unofficial broke netflix. I'm was on it to try out the"battery fix". I'm now on the latest official to compare battery life. Netflix works just fine for me.
I think I'm going to sit tight with #60 for awhile.
"Just got a confirmation that 2nd-init is functioning on the DX GB kernels. Just need to do some fix-ups. Blog post is in the works."

"Now that we have a proper 2nd-init that doesn't give a crap what kernel it's running on, the next step is to determine a good upgrade path from the existing CM4DX to the new variant with an updated kernel. This will involve LOTs of testing, and updating libraries and files, which could take a bit to determine, but should be on the horizon.
Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and updating the libs will fix some of the existing camera problems? (maybe? please?)"
Glad to hear 2nd-Init has evolved and that a proper 2nd Init has been developed to work on any kernel.
Great news if you ask me. =)
I'm interested in how Cvcps plans to tackle the camcorder issue. Each OEM has come up with their own solution (since AOSP doesn't appear to have 720p).
I'm gonna tackle it by making a Nandroid of a stock ROM with the blur camera
this is a big one for me...as its one of the reasons ive yet to make the move to a 2nd-init ROM...
I know this was already posted somewhere, but I couldn't find it by searching, and I'm not going to read through 50 pages of thread again... :X
Brightness slider in the notification bar: why won't it come up, what am I doing wrong?
settings-cyanogenmod settings-display-automatic backlight-enabled unchecked-use custom unchecked
Settings-cyanogenmod settings-interface-status bar tweaks-status bar brightness control checked
Is there something I'm doing wrong here? I guess I'm looking for a slider like on miui, is it hiding somewhere and I just have to know where to slide?
It's not a slider. Place your finger in the middle of the status bar (don't drag the shade down to the bottom, just put your finger on it), and drag your finger left and right to make it dimmer or brighter.
I don't like that. For one, I have my status bar hidden so I have to pull it down, pull it back up, and then try to find 'the magic spot' that actually changes the brightness! And it seems kinda jerky, and I can't 'see' where the brightness is now! I like to keep it just below medium unless I'm out in the sun. Unless I'm paying close attention I forget I bumped it up and then I kill my battery even faster!!!
There is a lovely 3/8" strip below the power buttons, above the "notification/verizon wireless" strip that is just BEGGING for a slider!
Yep, it's not perfect for sure. I found it adequate, though, once you get used to how it works.
You can always just configure the widget in the notification bar that controls brightness to use a few brightness levels that you like.
Hello everyone, I am a cricket customer with a Huawei. HOWEVER, my friend just switched from using a Verizon Droid Pro to an iPhone 4 on Verizon, and he GAVE me his DRoid Pro. He RESET it to Factory Settings. Now I want to root it, but when I turn it on it goes to the Verizon Activation screen. Does anyone know how to get around that? I have Android SDK on my Windows PC. I can link it to the PC and see what files are on it, but it isn't rooted. HOW CAN I ROOT THIS AND THEN FLASH IT?
I have rooting experience as my Huawei runs Cyanogen Mod7.
OKAY UPDATE: I went to YouTube, watched how to Hard Reset a Droid Pro R+M+Power, but that just lets you reset the phone, not get around Activation. So, more YouTube and I found if you tap (starting w/upper left) all four corners, like twice in a row, it bypasses the Activation screen. Then I downloaded z4 root 1.3.0 to my computer, USB it onto the Droid and VOILA I have a rooted Droid Pro, that will only connect to WiFi but cannot text or anything else since no service is connected.
NOW - Who knows how to Flash a Droid Pro to Cricket?
WRONG!!! Z4 does not root Droid Pro after latest Update. So, I am working with my phone I have tried DoRootWin, Z4Root and I am about to try easyroot. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
They finally have a proper camera fix that should be included in one of the next Nightlies.
i dont think anyone else knows much about the Droid Pro here, do a search for their forum
airmax what you talkin bout?
You guys have to visit rootzwiki.com more often
I am, I'm looking in the nightlies thread now and can't find anything about it.
