[OLED] 06/Dec r4: MoDaCo Custom ROM (MCR) downloads + Online Kitchen

Recommended Posts

Hmm subscribed for the online kitchen, but cannot see the option to turn the HW acceleration off. Where do I find it?

When you "bake" your ROM its there.

Use Hardware Acceleration installed to /system partition

This option enables hardware acceleration, which increases the peformance and UI smoothness of the device.

so apps2sd working perfectley ok with R4? really need this working as I have only restored about 75% of my apps from my htc magic (which still had 50mb free on with all apps on internal memory). looks like the r3 soloution is hit and miss so just waiting for a reliable version within a ROM to drop.

Hmm I see.. I just thought that it is some setting specific for the touchpal. The phone seemed swift enough even with the stock ROM, so disabling the hardware acceleration might help make the text input little more convenient...

One thing that isn't that hot is a car navigation though - I was used to use IGO 8.3 with Windows Mobile phone and the Android alternative is not only heavily stripped off features, but also a bit choppy. Any thoughts on how to improve I Go My Way performance and possibly use own skins?

I don't know whether the problem is ROM related or the application is slow on all devices, though...

A2SD is working flawlessly for me.

Me too!

130 apps installed (including a few big ones) and still around 60MB free.

K Any1 got app2sd working on r4??

Yes. Had to bake A2SD into the ROM and use Pauls version instead of Darktremor. For some odd reason I can't get Darktremor A2SD to work with a bake of r4 without Pauls A2SD.

But it works fine and I'm happy.

Hi guys, my phone is stuck in FTM mode and I don't know how to exit, please advise ?

Would removing the battery be safe ?

FTM happened to me also weeks ago, i just pulled the battery out seemed to clear it.

I baked a rom with A2SD, do I need to do some configuration after i flashed that rom or how can I confirm that it work?

I already partioned one 512mb area at the end of my SD-card

I can't get Darktremor to work at all with r4 so I'm just using the A2SD that Paul added. I don't think there are any commands for it. It just works. Make sure you have an ext partition on the SD card and it'll find it and use it automatically.

Skype released last week. Already installed on mine!

When I try to get Skype through WIFI I get message that the handset is not supported. I am using original Orange software, do I need to root first ?
