CM9 ROM for the Acer Liquid Metal, here it is: [url="http://www.mediafire.com/?jkzcabc0j1sa8fk"]http://www.mediafire...jkzcabc0j1sa8fk[/url]
And here is the flashable GAPPS (modified so it will install everything, even Google Play): [url="http://www.mediafire.com/?yad55f22n530pq5"]http://www.mediafire...yad55f22n530pq5[/url]

I installed GAPPS but still no playstore.
Please anyone can help me?

I don't use mobile data and the camera so this rom is perfect for me!

First the problem is caused due insufficient space in the system partition ,

Solution
first install only rom and reboot then install root explorer or any root file manager of your choice open /system/media delete the videos folder also delete any ringtones which you don't use. Then open /system/app delete all the unneeded apps like rom manager, email ,exchange ,camera etc
now extract the gapps and compare their size with the free space in /system partition
The free space in the system partition must be greater than that of gapps (you can also delete some gapps if you want)
If you have deleted some gapps create a new zip
Now reboot into recovery and flash the gapps Edited by liquid metal newbie

Thanks for the info!

I don't think it's a problem with space because I installed all gapps found in this thread (10mb, 23 mb, 27 mb) but still no playstore (only youtube gets installed).

How can I install root explorer without a file manager?

So neither the 10mb GAPPS is enough?

I need only playstore, if I add "MarketUpdater.apk" in the cm9 zip (system/app) and I install rom again should it work? Edited by Carter07

So any pratical advice to make it working?

It's a shame you made such hard work to port cm9 and neither the ones that are happy with no data connection can use it :) Edited by Carter07

[/quote]there already said you need to cleanup system folder and set full gapps. You should have less than 200mb in system. Also cache storage should be enough to host all that apps.

thanks, but can I do it directly from the cm9 zip and then install rom and full gapps?

I haven't found a file manager already installed in cm9 so I don't know how to install root explorer. Edited by Carter07

[/quote]yeap, system/app folder is right in your zip. But don't merge gapps and main zip, it usually causes more bugs.

I have to do it only the first time I install cm9, right? Edited by Carter07

I tried this rom for a few hours and it's awesome! speed and boot time are great compared to stock.

But I found my phone shut down 2 times when it was inactive, there must be some bugs. Edited by Carter07

[quote]I rememeber I was downloading dead trigger from play store with screen off.[/quote]uhm looks like wifi deep sleep issue, which is common for some chips those drivers were upgraded to ics without changing kernel driver. For sure I can't fix such behaviour..

Latest source for CM9 just got uploaded to my tree (for now only device tree, not kernel which has some little corrections).
Now everybody could compile latest source and get flashable archive as well as the newest cwm recovery(well, for ics, we're not talking about jb ones which are for sure newer).
I rejected my fixes on camera part (were totally wrong :P), and managed to get netmgrd to run.
So, camera and data [color=#ff0000][b]STILL NOT WORKING[/b][/color], the only issue seems remained in kernel part.

That source should have been uploaded last summer, but something went totally wrong so I haven't released them until now.

Let me also update issues list somebody needs to fix up:[list]
[*][CODE]couldn't mmap handle on the client[/CODE] - actually the last thing I got from huawei library which points to kernel/system allocator - pmem device; it might be little wrong, incomplete or so, so that somebody need a way to debug it first.
[*]netmgrd is actually running, framework gives to libril right parameters, it passes them to netmgrd - then boom - and netmgrd hungs on waiting answer, so whole telephony chain got ruined on that point; I bet netmgrd awaits something from kernel, but kernel can't answer back; If one could find what's actually wrong here - he will get data to work.
[/list]
Also I could offer one deal with gingerbread CM7 source. If somebody could get one of the bunch opensource libraries on CM7 to work (at the same time getting rid of the acer proprietary crap) we could wrap it then to CM9 routines and finally get camera to work. It seems easier than trying to find trouble in kernel (which has perfect camera driver, thx acer!).

PS:
I'm not going to back, but I'm still here to help anybody that could take this project over.
