[STOPPED] CyanogenMod Beta2 Omnia 2 (updated: 04.05.2012)

3 rules:

1st rule: Remember that it's beta. It may have bugs. If You can improve it somehow, let us know via private msg.

2nd rule: It's android forum not linux newbie help. Use other dedicated forums or learn linux.

3rd rule: Last but not least. We are doing it also for ourself, so we do not need donations.

Bugs:

Bug1: There is a bug when calling via BT or speaker, when screen goes off, only way to turn it on is finish call.

Bug2: FM Radio stops working when device is going to sleep or sms arrives.

Notes:

Note1: Wrong time is caused probably by lack of 3g during boot. Enabling and disabling airplane mode should help. Or Your provider does not support NITZ.

Note2: If You are using default install, first time GPS can be slow. Next times it will be fast.

FAQ:

1. Automatic installer

Requires:

- untouched My Storage with automatic installer content

- ext4.tar.gz from manual install package

- at least 2GB SD card (class 6 at least will be enough) with one FAT32 partition or with 2 partitions (FAT32 + ext2/3/4)

2. Manual install on Internal Storage

- guide by Gardakkan - link

- video tutorial by aafi-rocks - link

3. Storage devices (mmcblk*)

Following rules are for storage devices:

- if there is no external SD card, internal storage (My Storage) partitions are: /dev/block/mmcblk0p*

- if there is external SD card, internal storage (My Storage) partitions are: /dev/block/mmcblk1p* and external SD card /dev/block/mmcblk0p*

- there is kernel limitation of 7 partitions for mmcblk devices, so last partition is allways mmcblk*p7

4. Moutning Internal Storage as sdcard

Change /system/etc/vold.fstab line:

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto/devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.0/mmc_host/mmc0
to:
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto/devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.1/mmc_host/mmc1
4. ADB - first install Android SDK - Windows 7 - installs all drivers from Windows Update automatically - Windows XP - use this link, but without Step 1 - Linux - follow steps (as root or with sudo): - create file /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules with following content: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", SYMLINK+="android_adb", MODE="0666" GROUP="plugdev" - reload udev rules: service udev restart Basic usage: - adb logcat (shows logs) - adb logcat -b radio (shows radio logs) - adb push local_filename remote_dir_path (copies file to device) - adb pull remote_filename_path local_dir (copies remote file to PC) - adb install app_name.apk (installs Application from file) 5. Movies Probably best and smooth player is MX media player (even free version) with ARMv6 VFP codecs. 6. Sample startup.txt (for second partition of mmcblk device)

Set ramsize 180*1024*1024

Set mtype 1626

Set ramaddr 0x50000000

Set kernelcrc 1

Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200 vmalloc=256M"

setbitp 0x7F008808 5 1

pfw 0x7f005800 4 0x3

pfw 0x7f005804 4 0x805

pfw 0x7f005808 4 0x7

pfw 0x7f00580c 4 0x0

pfw 0x7f005828 4 0x11

pfw 0x7f00582c 4 0x80

boot

7. Chinese fonts

Update available here (thanks andylau&Job21).

8. RAM size

Generally Omnia 2 has 256MB of RAM. Below there are two main components which uses it:

- Radio (GSM) - 64mb (cannot be changed, it's hardcoded into radio firmware)

- 3D - 64mb (can be changed but if it will be lower, white squares will occur in 3d apps)

- Android - ~128mb

Archive for beta2:

Note1: Pink screen at boot

It's normal because of no logo compiled in. If it's too long (longer than 30s) tap the screen. If this not helps, You probably set wrong partition in startup.txt.

Note2: WiFi

- There is a bug with WiFi. If it's on and phone go sleep, after wake there is a chance it would not work again. Only fix is to reboot (some people say that: dev tools>connections>disable/enable wifi helps). We suggest to turn off WiFi before suspending phone.

- Sometimes phone cannot connect to router (it connects, but no DNS addresses). Workaround: in build.prop uncomment following entries:


#net.dns1=8.8.4.4

#net.dns2=8.8.8.8

to:

net.dns1=8.8.4.4

net.dns2=8.8.8.8

Note3: Black screen after call There is a bug in a phone call. When call is finished, screen stays black. Workaround is to swipe through proximity sensor Note 4: Manual install Example: if You have two partitions on SD card (first vfat, second ext4) You should set in startup.txt following: root=/dev/mmcblk0p2. Full file example for this (do not change anything other, only root device):

Set ramsize 180*1024*1024

Set mtype 1626

Set ramaddr 0x50000000

Set kernelcrc 1

Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200"

setbitp 0x7F008808 5 1

pfw 0x7f005800 4 0x3

pfw 0x7f005804 4 0x805

pfw 0x7f005808 4 0x7

pfw 0x7f00580c 4 0x0

pfw 0x7f005828 4 0x11

pfw 0x7f00582c 4 0x80

boot
If You want install on My Storage (Internal Storage):
mmcblk1p5 - by default is My Storage partition (this partition is mounted by default by Android as /storage)

mmcblk1p6 - by default is hidden partition

You have to resize mmcblk1p5, then create mmcblk1p7 (this will be root device in startup.txt) and format it with ext4.

For those who have problems with pink screen. Use this kernel BUT ONLY FOR checking what's going on. It has enabled vga console, but causes instability of android. AFTER problem diagnosis, You HAVE TO use normal kernel (with pink screen).

Any estimative on battery duration?

In the previous topic, ppl where talking about changing phone part and stuff... is it necessary for the new beta?

Does the devs need any specific feedback on the beta testing?

Well, thanks for it all, devs!!!!

I think this is an old version and will not work. The last one shall be compiled (is the one they have been working on during the last months)
