Thanks a lot for this I've been wanting to not have the UV ;)

Just so I'm sure I can flash this on a UK TPT'd Gen2 OSF with Swedish Snow RLS4b?

Thanks Burstlam, I've tried the patch (Swedish Snow version) and it solved the error problem at the camera app start (the image is shown inverted), however when the capture option is selected the app returns another error.

Hi Burstlam...

Thanks for the new kernel.... i'm testing it and i've found still a small issue with the camera... the image is upside down in case of my new zte blade 5MP bought in december in the netherlands... the other one i have and use daily is a old (1.5 year) 3.2MP OSF imported from the UK, which has no issues at al.

Because the new blade is a backup i tested a few roms.

Currently there are only two roms (kernels) that work without errors, but both have still the issue of the image being upside down.

Your new kernel and the kernel that comes with elitemovil's rom s5. So there's progress...

Is there a terminal command so i can check which camera chip i've got?

Thanks for your help...

With the Factory Default configs , MT9P111 with Samsung lens is not enabled. I add them back with the information shared by the Chinese Blade Community

I or other fellow DEVs need more information to examine the problem.

pls open Terminal and type

dmesg > /sdcard/dmesg

What is ZRAM?

It's a modified compcache integrated into the kernel, acts as a virtual swap which compressed in RAM.

Hi burstlam,

I've got 3 dmesg log files here.

1st just after starting the cam app.

2nd just after a picture was taken

3rd just after closing the cam app.

But i can't upload.. error not permitted to upload this kind of file??Plain text?? Howto fix this?

I've found a second issue with the kernel.. wifi won't work on both the blades i've got. Error in the network enable config window.

I've reverted back to elitemovils kernel just by overwriting the rom again, no whipe done. Wifi stated working again. And even better then before.

could it be due to the wifi firmware upgrade the reception quality of he new 5Mp blade is increased. With old firmware 1 bar at where i sit normally. with the new firmware 2 bars. Basement old firmware no reception... new firmware it connect, its slow, but connects. The old 3.2Mp hasn't become any better in this area due to the new firmware, It's now not as good as the new blade, no reception in basement.

Cheers...

I use it with german (EU) Blade (Base Lutea) and it works. My Blade 600 MHz was sold with GEN2. Some EU Blade (little older) may sold as GEN1 - i dont know if that alo works.

I would check that with ASKPIK... to be sure you have an Bade GEN2 and not an GEN1 (maybe flashed to GEN2).

Are there any differences between voltages to the skate kernel?

This one made my phone almost as unstable as the uv-kernel. The new wifi firmware is ver good though. I were able to see a LOT more networks with it. Now I'm running the feb17 burstlam non-uv kernel again.

I think that I'm not the only one who had no issues with undervolt, so it would be nice to use it again. Could someone modify this new kernel to enable it? I'm using Swedish Snow now.

Not usable with my Blade. Wi-fi keeps turning off by itself.

I've tried the 2nd patch and create the file asked, attach to the message as a .txt file.
