Posted (edited) · Report post

GingerBlade is a compiled rom from Google's 2.3.5 sources and contains some sources from Cyanogenmod (Thanks for them). You can see the bugs in this post.

The rom is rooted !

Download The server contains my previous job for gt540 ((http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=969366) , but the Blade version contains word "blade" in the filename. (gingerblade0904.zip)

The CPU works between 245 MHz and 600 MHz as default . The used governor is ondemand . The maximum possible overclock frequency is 852 MHz in the kernel .

The APN settings are set according to the sim card inserted .

It is using stagefright codecs insted of the stock opencore codecs .

The kernel is based on sources released on 2011.06.24 by ZTE . It contains overclock , cifs support .

It was made on stock partition layout , but it should work on any layout .The size of the system appr.122MB and the cache2ram function is activated .

I used my old sources 2.3.2 (from git://codeaurora.org/platform/manifest.git) which I used with gt540 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=969366). The fmradio is from cm sources and related files in framework. DSP Manager is also from cm sources ,gpsshim is also from cm sources .In the future I plan to upgrade to 2.3.4 or 2.3.5 .

Good job, this is a very good start!

Had a quick test and here are few notes. First thing I noticed is that my ambient light sensor wasn't working so the autobrightness doesn't work either (probably kernel thing). I can't sign into my google account using 3G connection. Actually all google apps (maps, youtube) complain that there is no network connection. Stock browser works over 3G though. Also my carrier name is displayed incorrectly (it shows Elisa when it should be Saunalahti). Tried replacing RILs but that didn't help.

What's the idea behind two launchers and home selector?

It might be also a good idea to make your ROM into a normal clockwork flashable zip. I think more people would try it and you'd get more feedback. Overall your ROM feels fast and solid.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the test and feedback!

I had simplier way while developping for gt540 even if there was no driver sources available as on Blade , because every model of gt540 was made on the same hardware . I know there are different versions of Blade . I tested the sensors on my Blade using my android sensors app, maybe a different version of libsensor (sensors.default.so) will work on your device. If you find one please let me know .

About the 3G . Did you check that the apn is set correctly , maybe my /system/etc/apns-conf.xml is outdated . Here in Hungary it works fine , and maybe it can cause that your provider name is incorrect.

The idea behind the two launcher is also coming from the gt540 . Someone likes the stock look of android , while someone wants to apply a theme for it , but does not like CM .

I will create the suggested update.zip .

Thanks again for the test and for the suggestions.

You obviously want to kill your Blade. Way to go!

ROM appears to work well. Needs updated APN list though.

Ok maybe i'm a noob and don't know anything about overclocking a phone. Maybe I should have have ask my question differently and somewhere else. But is this a reason to have this kind of answer?

Maybe you don't know anything about overclocking a phone. Use Google and find out.....then you'll know something new and feel good!

Do you think that because the overclocking software has a setting for 850Mhz that you should be able to use it?

A different ROM will not allow your CPU to overclock any differently.

I think 850mhz should be removed. But AOSP Gingerbread rom is a good thing, but it will be the same story as CM7, so I'll wait some time and I'll use it

What do you mean 'same story as CM7'? :huh:

You do know that CM7 is a forked from AOSP with additions. The AOSP is more of a standard base for handset/oem manufacturers to start off with getting Android on a particular board.

And also, Google are remaining tight-lipped about CyanogenMod ROM's popularity... and as long as CM does not violate bundling Google apps (which they got threatened with a cease and desist letter a while back)... Things will change for the better now that Steve Kondik (founder of CM) is employed by Samsung and hopefully kick the CWM to work properly full-on 100% on samsung's own proprietary memory filesystems which is somewhat... undocumented.

I mean. There will be same issues like in early CM7: battery drain, instability and etc. It will take awhile till it will be a daily use ROM.

Uhmmm

I beg to differ.

CM7 is a modified form of AOSP with extras.

AOSP is a barebones Android that is pure stock google system you'd see on a handset by a manufacturer that has not added their own branding etc and therefore would be more stable and faster...

But then again you should not be tarring the AOSP source with the same brush as CM7 and assume that AOSP is unstable etc...

I have not published the sources , so it is on my computer , because all source codes I used are freely downloadable . Only my modifications are not published , but if you want to build a rom I can give you some advice in pm how to start .The standard android sources downloadable following the source.android.com , You need to modify it to get it work on blade. The kernel sources downloadable from zte . The cm sources also downloadble from github (fmradio , usb, wpa_supplicant) and of course you will need some legacy libs for gsm, wifi and codecs.

Gpl license say you have to publish the sources of your binaries.

Especially when you modify the work of someone else and publish it.

I don't need your advices

I already have compiled my rom with AOSP 2.3.5 sources

Rom is in preparation and will be published soon

And the sources are available in my github like it's required by the Gpl license.
