[ROM][GEN2/3][31.10.] CyanogenMod 9 - KonstaKANG (Android 4.0.4)

1486 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This ROM is a self-build from CyanogenMod 9 sources. It's trimmed down to fit more reasonable partition sizes (see 2nd post for TPTs). It can be considered as bleeding edge as it's built with latest CM9 repo synced, yet unmerged patches from CM gerrit and few additional features. This ROM is mainly for GEN2 devices (see 2nd post on how to update to GEN2) but there is a patch to add support for GEN3 devices (see 2nd post). This ROM is for advanced users only.

Gen1 TPT for optimised partition layout:
This will only work in european phones that were sold with gen1 layout (eclair) and/or updated to gen2 via TPT method. This TPT won't work if your phone was sold gen2/gen3 or you have used a windows tool to update.

md5:c5201d683b1b760f9b5dd94d3be4ef19


Gen2 TPT for optimised partition layout:
This will only work in european phones that were sold with gen2 layout (froyo) or if you have used a windows tool to update.

G2-TPT-KonstaKANG.zip
http://d-h.st/ZrB
md5:6b4f47c4c3784d1018a3d4daef0a7f98


TPT instructions:

  • Copy cm-9-xxxxxxxx-KonstaKANG-blade.zip and gapps-ics-medium-xxxxxxxx-signed.zip to your sdcard
  • Unpack Gen1-to-Gen2-TPT-KonstaKANG.zip or G2-TPT-KonstaKANG.zip to your phones sdcard so that you have 'image' folder on the root of your sdcard
  • Install AFV (Android File Verifier) from the play shop
  • Use AFV to check that MD5 matches. Use 'verify nandroid backup' option to check /sdcard/image/nandroid.md5.
  • Power off, pull battery out, put battery back in
  • Press and hold VOLUME UP and MENU keys while you power on
  • You should see green text on your screen. Installation is in progress and you can let go of the keys
  • It takes about a minute after which your phone will boot into ClockWorkMod
  • Install cm-9-xxxxxxxx-KonstaKANG-blade.zip in CWM
  • Install gapps-ics-medium-xxxxxxxx-signed.zip in CWM

Hi KonstaT,

Another great ROM. Tried it yesterday, but there were 3 slight problems, no wifi,theme option and clock allways FC'd.

Opening Wifi settings the slider to enable/disable wifi was greyed out, so no option to turn it on.

Is this a complete noob on my part, or is a known issue with the rom?

On the other hand it was very smooth, fast and

Anyways, i'm back to SS RLS7, but will try again this one on the weekend.

Regards

Sal

Sorry, I don't see much chance that happening ever.

Edit. And I meant the OMX. :P There is still some hope that this ROM will get better with time in some other way. ;)

Yeah, did wipe Dalvik (only).

But as I said, I'll give it another go later today or tomorrow.

Thanks for you prompt reply.

No need to flash anything. Just install S2E from the play shop. If the options are greyed out on the first time, go to S2E settings and tick 'Mount as ext4' and reboot. Tick the Applications and Private apps boxes, reboot and never worry about it again. ;) This way a2sd script is stored where it's supposed to be (/data/local/userinit.d) and it's preserved during ROM updates. That worked for me at least, don't know how link2sd would work.

Also there is no reason to include ad-free hosts file in this ROM. If someone wants to block ads, just install ad-free from the play shop and let it install the hosts file (you can even uninstall the app after that if you want). Hosts file is also backed up and preserved during ROM updates so you don't have to do it again after every update.

Is there anyway to reduce the duration for "hold back to kill app"? It is much longer in this ROM than all others that I've used.

No, I increased it for a reason. It shouldn't be used anyway unless you're using it to kill some misbehaving app. Use the ICS multi-tasking view to close unneeded apps.

There is a patch in the gerrit that will make the delay even longer than it is here.

Top work!

Glad to see your ICS-kang here.

Just one question: Are you sure about 2mb /cache ?

I have read tomG mention that it may cause some problems with PlayStore and ROM manager app.

2mb is fine. Play won't even use the cache if it is that small. And I think it was sej who was having trouble with rom manager?

I'm loving it. I prefer it to every other build i have tried and i've tried them all, it's stable and swift.

I'll leave you alone with the OMX stuff by stating once that there are two projects worth looking at but i know you already know that so...

What GEN? Install Blade Checker from market (or play as it called nowadays) and tell us.

If it's GEN1 or GEN3 you're going to need another procedure.

For GEN3 you'll need to install the moldova patch to make it work, you should probably mention that.

It's the same patch you used for SS.

And downgrading to GEN2 doesn't work no matter what TPT you provide, it will provide you with a problem that can only be fixed by reflashing an original ROM or upgrading via GEN3 windows patch.

I have no idea why people keep insisting it will work, it doesn't, not even once in a trillion times will it work. You'll end up with a blue screen with white stripes EVERY time.

What GEN? Install Blade Checker from market (or play as it called nowadays) and tell us.

If it's GEN1 or GEN3 you're going to need another procedure.
