Hmm. I finally got the update applied - and the baseband version is still displaying as H6 (which is what the phone came with) rather than H8.

Gonna try a factory reset, as my phone has also annoyingly started to load a random selection of apps on boot.

Also, I couldn't get ADB working come hell or high-water for pushing the recovery ROM to the phone, so I just copied it across to the SDCard via Windows. That works too :)

EDIT 1:

Nah, the factory reset didn't do beans, except for not only resetting the phone but losing all the in-built settings. Makes me wonder if O2 even bothered developing a CSC for the phone or whether they just pushed the settings out when you boot it and that's that.

For reference, if anyone needs them, the O2UK settings can be found here: Post on O2UK forums with data settings

Paul, did you see this custom rom? http://forum.hdblog.it/showthread.php?t=4267

They're using compcache, optionally backed by sd swap.

Interesting!

Didn't think you could do BFS / Compcache on 2.6.27!

Compcache seems to work really well. Compcache managing SD swap has similar problems to straight SD swap, after a while it fills up and everything lags severely. I'm just running compcache now and its pretty fast.

The keyboard on that ROM is amazingly fast. Not sure what they're using exactly.

All works well apart from data, I did a hard reset but it doesn't start a connection to data when needed. Wifi works fine for data though, any ideas?

Have you set-up the APN? I found that a hard reset wiped the APN so I had to define it manually.

I do confirm that the APN is lost :) but once fixed this look like it is working.

Paul, could you add this as a warning : Do backup your APN settings before starting :(

(APN loss is not a big thing as long as you remember them ... or get ready to burning bills to pay if you put the wrong one)

By the way, I do prefer the "su" to block and ask the user a request or add in the whitelist ("SuperUser Permission" application) ... I find this more secure that granting su to anybody as this ROM is doing on my phone.

Sad that you are leaving the Galaxy, thank you for your work on this mobile phone.

Rgs,

TM

Damn, after updating to v1.2 there's not enough space in /system anymore to push the libpdfreader.so to /system/lib

Does anyone know how to increase the size of the /system partition or how to free 2.4 MB?

Thanks for the ROM, Paul! It's working great on my Samsung Galaxy i7500. I have an appeal, though - can you upload somewhere the sources of the stock kernel, so I can compile myself (among other things) tun.ko module? That would be great!

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

Greets,

Damyan
