I did that immediately after rom flash. Just my gf really likes that battery circle. I flashed battery circle to my S2. You know women, she wants that one too :D
[/quote]

From my personal experience with my girlfriend and sister, if you say that it is impossible to get it like that, they'll believe and get on with their lives.. :)
But as I said, you can do it using the UOT Kitchen, it won't "destroy" anything, and if any problem arises just download again and reflash. Perfectly safe procedure!

The blade 2 has it's own device config so it would be best to apply the fixes (commits) of jventura to it. I may try it soon Edited by gbosh

Panorama is a thing that never worked, and it doesn't matter anyway.. The camera itself is working fine (for photos and movies)!
[/quote]
Hmm, panorama was [url="https://github.com/KonstaT/android_device_zte_blade/commit/58b25fc3650237fa76b0cf3883dc7ee446117dc7"]fixed on CM9[/url] months ago. I also think that Ganster did his preview optimizations initially on CM9. You might want to check his github as well. :)

Lol, just to see how much I know about Panorama! I didn't noticed that patch.. :)
Was this implemented in CM9 repo? Because "switch to panorama" force closes camera..

Thanks Konstat

Edit: It seems it was not implemented in CM ics repo.. Edited by jventura

No, I did it later. Btw, there's one for [url="https://github.com/KonstaT/android_device_zte_blade/commit/0c7ada3f430fdf561de84a60feab27e52aeae846"]barcode scanner[/url] before that (partially reverted in the panorama commit).

I guess only the kernel and prebuilt binaries would be needed to be changed.. If you are willing to try, get my sources and mix them with the CM9 port you have! I won't do it myself, since I don't have a ZTE Crescent, and I have better ways of spending my time.. :)
[/quote]

haha ok! Thanks if I get the time I might try to compile YABR (Yet Another Blade Rom) using your advice!

I did not have to rebuild the kernel, apparently there are CWM flashable zips already avaliable I flashed and it works in HQ youtube without lag :) http://www.modaco.com/topic/353123-ics-cm9-404-cyanogenmod-9-for-the-zte-crescent-rom-last-updated-1307/page__st__2580#entry2086711

Offtopic: quick question, can you tell the difference between the following two zips with omx libs: http://www.mediafire.com/?jabzfqfcswz8db9 and http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?8il1cf5q7p0dd9t the omx patch.zip seems to have more libs, does it mean it supports more formats than omx.zip?

I installed this ROM the other day and have only one small problem with it. I can't seem to get any custom boot animations to work, nor does there appear to be a default one.
Why?

[/quote]

Hi there,

I've removed the bootanimation.zip from /system/media, and set the "persist.sys.nobootanimation=1" so the ROM could boot faster..
If you want to set the boot animation back, just copy a bootanimation.zip file back to /system/media and do this on the phone's terminal:

[CODE]
> su
> echo 0 > /data/property/persist.sys.nobootanimation
> reboot
[/CODE]

If you want to remove the boot animation again, just change 0 for a 1.. :)

Last time I've used CM10, it seemed to much resource-hungry for me.. With the screen on, even with auto-rotation off, the battery drained faster than with CM9! So, I will stay with CM9 for the current time, and I'll see later if CM10 is worth the change.. Edited by jventura

Everything is working fine here, so the problem is on your side!
First things first, what is the size of your system partition? Go to the terminal app, and do "df" (without quotes). You should have 160MB or more..

Use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amphoras.tpthelper
If you use the 160MB on /system you can install all CM9/CM10/CM10.1 versions that are in this forum.. Good luck! :)

As I said previously, everything except what I mention in the first post is working as expected, including the home button of course.. The "No space for extras" is an error in the installation script, because there are no extras to be installed in the zip file..

Saudações!

For the short time I've tried this CM9 version, it seems by far the best ROM for ZTE Blade, whereas CM10/10.1 is very slow and this does pretty much everything either way :)

I've found a few issues that seem to plague this version, like other CM9s:

- GPS in Navigation isn't detected or takes a long time to find the location (haven't got it to do so with Eco CM9, took a long time with CM9 ColdfusionX)
- HW accel in BS Player doesn't work (not sure if a issue with the ROM, works ok on CM7.2.0)
- No video on apps like Twitch TV. Works great on GB based ROMs.

My biggest issue here is really the GPS. Seems strange everyone would report it as working and I keep getting problems with it. Which software do you use for GPS navigation?

Also not sure why this works in 16bit graphics with dethering, as performance seemed good in 32bit. Any basis for this?

If someone can drop some hints in debugging these the GPS and video issues, would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards

Hi there,

I am not having problems with GPS. I use GPS Status to check GPS satellites, etc., and NDrive for GPS Offline navigation. Everything is working fine, and I get the signal pretty fast.
You should try Eco CM9 to see if GPS problems persist on your phone, maybe something got fixed on the way..

About the video issues, I don't know. I only used Youtube app to test video and it is working fine. I haven't used the other apps you mentioned. As for 16bit, you should really ask Daemond on the CM10 (Continuation) thread, since it was him who did the patches. My understanding of the subject was that 32 bit imply a later conversion to 16 bit because our display's are 16 bit, and so, doing the conversion in the first place (for 16bit to 32bit) was a waste of resources for some cases. But Daemond can explain better that part..
But as final result, I see some improvements in some apps, like for instance, in a sudoku game that I play a lot.. Edited by jventura

finally got rom working everything seems great !
only slight problem (also problem when i had konsta cm9) is that dolphin mini is prone to force close, when opening it seems to load the content but nothing happens on the screen its just white as if nothing has loaded, but the screen is scrollable and you can highlight objects. this happens 40% time i open dolphin mini
left it overnight went from 70%+ to 52% ???? checked battery -mobile standby40%, phone idle 23% ??? Edited by mickeystar

jventura, thank you for keeping this alive. It is the only ICS ROM in active maintenance, and the only 4.x i can trust to multitask on (memory usage is way up on Jelly Bean)

Reboot your phone and try "GPS Status", to see if you can get a GPS signal..
