Evening all, this thread has been created to keep the android 4.0.x,

development thread free from unnecessary and unhelpful posts that are cluttering and ultimately distracting our developers from developing this rom.

Please feel free to post any questions, comments you may have here with regards to android 4 for the racer :)

Rules: before thinking of posting "this works & this don't " please read post #2. when things get fixed/changed , the items on post #2 will get amended to reflect this. it's also recommended to read the whole of the original thread so we,re not covering questions that have already been answered.

original thread here>

support our developer's by not cluttering the above thread, this is what this thread is for.

thank you for your cooperation & understanding :)

you are asking for a super sensitive touchscreen on a rom that doesnt even have proper driver.. you should ask that in a kernel dev thread or something.. i have a super sensitive kernel but in ics the screen flickers and even on cm7 i cant make it work properly even though sensitivity is perfect.. but then again, bigger issues are getting ts to work without the pointer thingy in ics which i think deadlink is working on but i dunno

no because its quite incomplete.. since i used some old kernel sources without any helping from others, my kernel doesnt even support screenshots and various other stuff meaning deadlinks/vamshis kernels are far better then mine..

as for ics i might also release a testing rom in a day or two but with vamshi kernel since i base my rom on his work :) and is also better because i adb reboot and deadlinks kernel makes rom stop there until i plug out my usb cable p;

ya it would help if people would release newer source or .config file for the kernels (.config files i can get).......but we still have the problem of the ts driver issue that needs sorting out (top of the list for me) so dont matter what kernel we use at the moment the problem is still existing and if nobody can modify the driver then where f*cked basically

progress is very slow regards to everything else and i`m finding less and less time at the moment with christmas vastly approaching

KEYBOARD is the least of our problems, very easily fixed..................

i`m using a blade build as i dont have enough time nor usage to compile from source, "LatinIME.apk" is the keyboard .apk

if you have ADB correctly setup you can do it through windows:

adb push LatinIME.apk  /system/app/LatinIME.apk

@Plegdroid didnt realise it was full lol.........have deleted some now........

true but im still basing it on vamshi because it boots with usb plugged in, makes life much easier for me using adb :D

im not sure about blades build but my mms apk is very buggy, it fc after second letter.. and i dont think its my error since i didnt change anything there, must be the original code D:

also yeah, keyboard is not an issue, easy fix but that can wait :P

got sick tho, just woke up to take meds and going back to bed, will check some stuff tomorrow <3

we need to get the network working too, for blade users this works with the build i`m working on but not for me, so i`m thinking the libril.so needs changing maybe, i maybe wrong

hmm, ill take a look at that, i still dont have network working, i saw you posted it works so i didnt bother :o

edit: nvm i misread that >.>

edit2: i wonder why the chinese dont mention ics, if they did, we would have probably gotten a working build a month ago xD

progress update, christmas has been and gone now, Vamshi has given us a nice christmas present in presenting us with the new revised kernel 2.6.32.9........hopefully soon we will have kernel modified for ICS (fingers crossed and no promises) then we can navigate around the rom alot easier without the annoying cursor on screen, after that we will still need to change some propriortory files just like in cm7 to refine and give more function, slowly but surely...............
