Wondering does the GPU render UI?

If not this should help...

@/system/build/prop

Default:

debug.sf.hw=0
New:
debug.sf.hw=1

Makes certain things snappier !

It should be accelerated by default. On the blade it was disabled due to some EGL errors. Usually a manufacturer will disable this by adding "debug.sf.hw=0" to the build.prop. Huawei haven't done this here and performance is sufficiently quick for me to believe it's enabled.

Okay sounds good to know, well then I shall try out the ROM !

**EDIT**

I am wondering will you add a reboot and go to recovery mode when the power button is used?

Hello guys,

I have a question.

Actually I have a stock B136 before and installed B160 custom ROM. My question is, if I wanted to use this ROM, what should I do? Is there any procedure first? Or just do it like how I flashed my stock ROM to B160?

Thanks! :)

Make sure you have the latest recovery image installed, copy the rom to your sd card and reboot into recovery. Install the rom as normal. If you don't wipe data then you should be able to keep your currently installed apps. Of course for best performance you want to wipe data and install fresh. The rom supports google sync so once you've set up your google account your applications should be automatically re-installed.

Um.. that's a mistake. I'll fix it in the kitchen, but prebake will have to stay with the small cosmetic mistake.

I will add more that my camera is defect !

Same problem as.

Thanks for confirming that. I'll test the new lib myself and see if it breaks my camera. If it doesn't then I'll roll it out for everyone.

Yes, so I'm confused.

Anyway I've pushed liboemcamera.so to my phone and it's working fine. It's quite odd.

Is it just me that can't go into photos? After I take a picture, I wanted to go into the gallery, but it seems like when I press it, nothing happens. But if I press "Switch to video", it works.

BTW, I'm on r2. :)

r2 seems to be a bit broken.. it's 30mb smaller than it should be! I'm uploading r3 which is correct size.. I must have broke the kitchen earlier :)

update: it's missing a load of system apps... very strange. the r3 I'm uploading is correct and the r3 built from kitchen is fine.. Sorry for the trouble guys B)

No worries about that, not a big deal at all. :)

Will wait for r3, test it a bit then dreamland! It's 1.45am here B)

By the way, Huawei IME is the keyboard which appears when we swipe the normal keyboard right? What I meant was the keyboard with phone keypad.
