Internal Memory for the ROM!

I've talked with Thepasto, he told me that i've to modificate the kernel and i can't do this, sorry guys...

May I know what you want to achieve from repartitioning the internal memory? If you want to repartition the size of kernel, system, userdata images you can set these in one of the salsa device's board config file. Here are what they are:

BoardConfig.mk:BOARD_BOOTIMAGE_PARTITION_SIZE := 0x00500000

BoardConfig.mk:BOARD_RECOVERYIMAGE_PARTITION_SIZE := 0x00500000

BoardConfig.mk:#BOARD_SYSTEMIMAGE_PARTITION_SIZE := 0x0c800000

BoardConfig.mk:BOARD_SYSTEMIMAGE_PARTITION_SIZE := 0x0cf00000

BoardConfig.mk:BOARD_USERDATAIMAGE_PARTITION_SIZE := 0x0c800000

BoardConfig.mk:#BOARD_HAS_NO_MISC_PARTITION := true

Upon further digging I found that these are defined in ./kernel/acer/salsa/arch/arm/mach-msm/nand_partitions.c file. take a look at that file. Although I have not tried it. When you change the values in the BoardConfig.mk file ensure that those corresponding values are reflected in this nand_partitions.c file. Be careful not to brick your device. But I guess as long as your recovery bootloader is intact you should be fine.

I am not sure how much I can help you but I am also in the learning phase as I read this forum. So, don't take me as a really experienced guy. Good luck.

Check in memory management, is KSM same page merging enabled? I enabled it and had many reboots FCs and crazy flicker. Check it once and disable it if its enabled.

Thanks for you reply. The KSM is not enabled. But I just have the dithering which is enabled.

I read in 4pda forum (if I have translated well) this:

"Yes, the usual applications open a little long and a little place (but this can be fixed creating xdata)".

Where is xdata? There is in LiquidParts but i don't know what is.

dithering - i don't think this will create any reboots or freezes.

Check if swap is enabled type "free" in terminal emulator

Check free Ram from running services tab in Settings-Apps.

Please report back if xData or performance increase works, i will try enabling xdata later, this may erase sd-ext.

O sorry i didn't notice you have a Liquid E, swap is not needed on your device, you don't have RAM problem, but i don't know why you are having freezes and reboots(those were common on Liquid A1 not E).

Sorry can't help more, nobody had reboots problem on Liquid E.

You can try a fresh install, with full wipe, i have a Liquid A1 with 60 max-22 min Ram free and still i never had reboots.

Just wanted to say thanks for this ROM, even tho it looks like development has (just recently) ceased. I moved on from the Acer Liquid E about a year ago, but when my GF's phone died I gave her mine with the intent of getting a nexus 4 - that didn't go so well yet :D So now I'm back to the Acer for now.. which I was heavily dreading at first. But after reading these surprisingly active forums, and giving this ROM a chance, I must say I actually enjoy using the Acer again. I've never had a 4.x ROM on a phone before, and although it's not perfect, for what I need this ROM is excellent.

Thanks for making my return to the Acer an enjoyable experience.

Guys, i think that the developments of our liquid is dead. For me we'll not have more updates (for example one CM10 rom).

It's time to change smartphone or to stabilize with LiquidNext 1.9.2, CM7.2 v2 or Miui Final v2 (for me the better roms).

I tend to agree, but who knows...

But in any case it's been a great ride! Hard to believe my A1 shipped with Android 1.6 Donut... we've come far indeed from those humble origins, and all thanks to the many great devs who worked on this device. You're legends guys!

Oh yes, you're right..

Liquid with ice cream sandwich is a great achievement, and many thanks to all devs.

But who knows in a unexpected news!!

Long life to Liquid :)

You guys are right, ICS on our Liquid is amazing Jelly Bean is no different than ICS, so we actually don't need much development.

Our Liquid is a warrior which is still fighting and can be compared to many Brilliant devices.

And the developers on Liquid are magicians which made all these miracles to happen.(They are GREAT)

The development on Liquid is slow, but it will have more in future.

I Love :wub: my Liquid
