                -------------------------------------------------------------------

                BETA1 :

                [*]Download cm9 archive for your device and push it to your sdcard

                [*]Select Install zip from sdcard

                [*]Choose cm9 archive and wait for installation end

                [*]Select reboot system now

                [*]ENJOY your CM9

                First boot can take a while up to 5mins.

                Advices:

                [*]Enable SWAP: Install a2sd script it's an easy way to get it working.

                [*]Data not working:open with root explorer your /system/build.prop file you should find a line like this:

      ro.telephony.ril.v3[/font]=skipbrokendatacall,signalstrength,datacall
      edit it, removing datacall parameter. so it should be like this:
      ro.telephony.ril.v3=skipbrokendatacall,signalstrength
      save your build.prop and reboot.
        • [*]
      Mass Storage in Recovery Mode: Best way to use it, is using adb. Mount your sdcard (mounts and storage->mount /sdcard).
adb push SOMEFILE /sdcard/

[*]BootLoop on first Boot: It's a common problem on a1 (256mb ram) device. To solve just be sure you've enabled SWAP. Boot rom with opengl enabled requires a big amount of ram. After boot you should have about 50mb free ram. So it's really needed only to boot your device.

[*]Fastboot usage: A1 (256mb) owners can't flash no more system.img via fastboot. New layout partition could make your device unbootable.

Credits:

The whole team (roggin, after_silence and me), jerpelea from freexperia team, malez for his recovery installer scripts, all testers expecially yapa73, RomzesRover, Manuuu, Fuf_Nuf and everyone else i forgot to thank (don't blame me)...

RC1: Tnx to Lupohirp for his great kernel work and help. Our tester Paulus, Muhaimin, Cooorsa, Ainilla etc....

Important:

Differences between LiquidA1 and LiquidE roms: We are sorry to use two different roms atm.. But a1 needs more tweaks to run ICS, about dalvik vm and other stuff, we will merge two project that maybe in next release patching installer script. Anyway rom is pretty the same, kernel is the same (for now), so don't worry about that.

Please remember it's an under-development rom, so it needs still a lot of work to be really ready for a daily usage, and with all hardware working. We're working hard to get that.

And please don't report bugs about already known not working stuffs.

Tips:

A1 (256mb) random hangs fix [thx RomzesRover]:

Turn on compcache (18%)

Tick "Allow purging of assets"

Uninstall/Go back to older roms:

i think this should be clarified.

Liquid E (512mb ram) users can use this new recovery to flash older roms or restore nandroids.

Liquid A1 (256mb ram) HAVE TO reflash malez recovery to install gb/froyo roms and manage bckps.

seems for the 256mb Liquid - you uploaded the MD5 file instead of the zip? :)

thanks for your work.

you need to install malez to restore your old nandroid. If you'll install new gb rom from scratch in CWM recovery you don't need malez, and you can use new parition layout with old roms too.

To create swap your sd will be formatted like malez recovery does

I'd love to try it, but this line is scaring me a bit:

Fastboot usage: A1 (256mb) owners can't flash no more system.img via fastboot. New layout partition could make your device unbootable.

Does this mean installing this rom on my A1 can potentially brick the device? Or is it always possible to just reflash a full clean bin with Acer Download Tool? I don't understand what you mean by "unbootable"...

Other than that, eager to try this rom, you guys are GODS!

Curiosity: you don't mention LEDs in your working/non working list, any info on those?

Anyway, will flash as soon as I read confirmation that there's no risk of bricking... can't wait!

That line means only if you're compiling a rom and you'll get a system.img for liquidA1 don't flash it via fastboot. use a zip installer. NO RISK ABOUT BRICKS. You can use ADT everytime you need to restore your phone. It's only a kernel mod so no risk :P

No clue about leds i haven't checked that :P sorry

I should add that at the Liquid A1 due to hardware acceleration may hang a standard browser or the whole system hang when using the Rotate in what is heavy applications or the simultaneous use of multiple heavy applications.

away add that when you turn compcache (18%) and tick the "Allow purging of assets"

greatly reduced the possibility that the phone freez .. (well, I then do not freezes) for 256 liquid

The link to download Gapps doesn't work. I really need it to recover my phone numbers from my google account.

And another issue i can't get data network to work.

Besides of that tis rom is very good.

Edit: Ok link works now I've downloaded the gapps only problem now is that is seems that I am unable to enable my device as usb storage , it says that it is connected but it doesn't show up.

So that makes me unable to put the gapps file on my sd card to flash it.

Edit: usb storage works only on my pc not on my mac

testing it, and first of all: I'm really impressed with the fluidity on the old A1... you guys are amazing, I'd never have thought that ICS would run so well on this old device.

Secondly: can anyone explain to me how to use the ext partition for apps? I never did it, and since I created one with recovery might as well use it... I installed the a2sd script from recovery but ICS still tells me I have only 135mb of space for the apps. Also, are there any disadvantages if I use ext partition for apps? Because I can live without it if it creates problems...
