This is still a WIP by myself and Silvist. Initial build compiled, more details as they develop.
I loved CM7 on the Ascend and would love to see what it does on a real phone!!
Plus then maybe JuiceDefender will actually work the way it's supposed to..
If you need some testers, let me know!!
Ah this is good news dev's. Screw juicedefender. Just turn your 3G off and your good for a whole days worth of battery.
915 I hope, and yes I'll genie pig
CM is said to improve battery life, no?
Awesome. Looking forward to it. Thank you for all of your work. Seriously. This is an awesome phone, and it's great that the devs are so awesome. Love you. No homo.
Building for the R910, but if the hardware is all the same should just need a cricket mms fix flashed.
usually depends, but yea normally is better over stock.
The weird way samsung does stuff is being a pita, but I'm sure with some advice from the dev community we can get it working.
Im guessing without looking that they are one in the same the 910 and 915. From dealing with Ati and Palit in markwting/running one of there oc teams...That the 915is bad binned 910 boards that they are getting ris of and if they ran out of bad onea they could still dumb down to 3g if needed. could be a reason no usb hdmi support cause they didnt want to pay patent fees twice for the same boards. just a guess i dont see why they would hust turn off lte support instead of saying 4g ready...
so if thats the case it would be like other binned down hardware on the market. some would acept the update and work fine. others would juat lock up if u tried to enable somthing screwed up that they blocked out when t
if they dumbed it down for that reason.
Yea basically what I think too. Once this port is up and booting I will need a rom dump from the R915 and I will be able to setup the src to build for either like the LG Optimus repo I use is setup.
they could also lazer cut that out of the board if they wanted. which would make a user have to do a pen mod if possable to unlock it. yet thats an extra step that they normally dont do in pther hardwqre anymore and just lock it via flash. Ill upload this rom late earlly morning.....ur want me too whip it down to stock unrooted no extra bs?
Sweet can't wait...if you need another tester let me know
where can we find it ??
its not ready yet, I will update the OP when we have a working build going. It will also be on my wiki (see sig), and its the first thing I update when I have something to add on the sites.
Oh man! I can't wait .... is this gonna be better than Basix? Ill donate something by the way
..or a good as Exodus??
Damn.... we'll try it and give you a feedback as soon as we fash it...
Well since both of those are based on stock 2.2 Froyo, IMO def yes it will be.
when we get it so it flashes and boots, test builds will be posted
Hopefully this can work with the R915. The Basix/Exodus are for 910 only.
I will personally drop my pants and run around naked if this fixes the bluetooth stack, samsungs stack is so fukt. if we can sync a wiimote to the indulge I wont need a new phone until they come standard in my flying car, and smellovision set. ^.~
we may have decided to go with cm6 to start with due to lack of GB src for the drivers such. IBCH this is gonna be a pita lol on either count.
I was working long and hard trying to compile a cm7 for indulge. That didn't work out so well, due to my lack of linux knowledge. During the time I was trying to build it, I asked Playfulgod for more than enough help. People kept asking me when the new version of Exodus would come out, but now that's riding on this current project ;p.
Mostly all of the work of porting Cyanogenmod is going to be done by Playfulgod, due to his experience with porting CM to prepaid devices, and his linux knowledge. I did my best to try and learn linux, and I learned a ton...but Playfulgod knows much much more lol.
He offered to help try and port this thing over, so the reigns are in his hand. Keep in mind though, he doesn't own an Indulge. So that's what I'm basically here for. I'm assisting him with what I know about Samsung phones, and in case I don't know something I always refer to other known samsung devs: Konane, Shabby, Dr, and Decadence. Also I'm providing him with all the samsung goodies he needs to get all this working. I at least now understand how github works, and what a list of src looks like and should contain.
Before we release it, to prevent massive bricking I'll probably be the main one testing it. When we feel its safe to release, and that it won't mess up your guys phone, we'll definitely do so.
He also mentioned that we are going to have to start with CM6, instead of CM7. He listed the reasons above, but keeping mind if we are successfully able to get a working/stable CM6, we can then try to port CM7. We already had about 4-5 successful compiles (aka CM7.zips for CWM) of CM7 for the indulge, but when I tried to flash with CWM it failed. So, without having any working CM on the indulge, its hard to start working with. That's the reason were going this route.
This is the greatest news evar.
First off I want to say,
I love you Silvist, but you already know this.
I wish you the absolute best in this entire production.
I want you to succeed.
I will gladly help using my reckless ability to flash random things to other random things on a whim when I can.
That being said.
Unless Samsung gives a little, I don't know if this can be done to a level that everyone who just heard the words "Cyanogenmod on the indulge" expects.
Prove me wrong guys though, prove me wrong.
I'll be hanging in chat if you need me. Later...
yea I found this out the hard way lol. Silvist told me about his time limitation with school starting and I just gotten the port for the optimus c going and a port for the ascend 2 booting and figure how hard could the indulge be lol. Man was I wrong, but we will give it a good go anyhow and hopefully get sumtin working good enough for a daily driver.
