i am running V7 with a sim and i still had that problem

Mmm, not v7, I'm talking about Twister v1.0 which is way better. You should try that. It is very improved compaired to v7 and v8. It works great with Holo Launcher and Task Manager. I only removed the second camera and Explorer+. Maybe one or two more things but in general it works faster and reliably.

How can a partition like this magically appear? I will now restore my backup but most probably I have to remake the partitions under Ubuntu otherwise I will encounter problems (even linux swap not working), right?

Known issue of Minitool: only delete 12 mb and linux swap partitions and re partition unallocated as linux swap; then under ubuntu reformat only linux swap

1) I know why that happens. At your instructions for the 8GB version over at hdblog.it you say that the ext4 partition must be 1260MB but the actual Twister image is 1249MB. So the rest 12MB are set as unallocated space causing issues. Change it to 1249 and it should be just fine.

2) After some boots, Fubo WinMo cannot enter the Start Menu when clicking the bottom-left windows logo. It just does nothing. I have found another way to enter the menu so it does not really bother me. Also, a password prompt comes up sometimes that I cancel. Do these happen to you too?

3) About the camera, flash does not seem to work for me.

I cleared the whole internal storage and created all partitions new. I installed the twister v1 and used it again for 2 days. No way! It looks good but it is really unusable at my device. I can not take on any incoming phone calls, because the system is too slow. And the systems hangs up very often, approx. 15 unwanted reboots a day. I dont know why, but for me the v8 version works much better. I changed back and wait for the next releases to try again.

^_^ Deleting a couple of things and using "pimp my rom" app, I'm having a better experience with v7

1)I have Omnia 2gb: i have only reported users's configuration that have tested it on Omnia 8gb; as you told 1250mb it's better

2) Click on right bottom arrow and swipe to explorer; after that click on Advanced config/today/start menu grid configuration and set to "4 columns (default)"; reboot WinMo

Password request never happen to me

3)Just tested flash: working

pimp my rom is an app that lets you apply a big number of tweaks to a rom, unfortunately you can't use some options cause the app crashes but you can always use supercharger v6

play store link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.androguide.pimp.my.rom&hl=es

xda link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1908269

btw, i do not trust that task manager app, in twister shows me 50mb free ram and in v7 shows me 60 mb, but in settings>applications>running services in twister i had 30mb and in v7 i have 90-95mb (total) and i trust this number more because i can feel it in the perfomance.

I removed one of the two camera apps. I left the one where you can change from picture to video from inside the app. Also, it is faster. At this app, flash does not seem to work.

spiderman can you please change your links from rapidshare to mediafire, hotfile or else. as you know rapidshare made it's files private so only the one uploaded them can download them.

can you also upload you twister ROM in ext4.tar.gz form ?

i am also wondering if we can use android inphone installer (the same from froyo beta 3 or CM2 of http://o2droid.phj.hu/index_en.php) to install your ROMS. anyone tried and failed ?

p.s. i also have a suggestions to make. 1) try to import some characteristics from miui ROMS to your new twister rom. MIUI camera, MIUI gallery, MIUI music are very fast and can give a new gingerbread look to 2.2 rom. 2) you can also borrow some files or structure from miui roms for HD2 (also made wm phone) and other phones from here http://en.miui.com/download.html i think that miui is one of the best ROMS in the market. many developers think far better than CM. 3) although i mentioned before there has been an excellent progress on miui rom http://forum.samdroid.net/f62/rom-miui-gb-6349/ for i5700 and maybe you can also borrow directly from there some things ro really make our phone fly !!!

waiting for twister v.2 !!! thanks fro your great job !!!

I have a question regarding the bluetooth connection to the car radio. If I had connected the twister v1 version to my car, the phone asked me via status info also to share the contacts and call history. I agreed and all was there in the car phone menu.

I use the v8 version now, because it runs better on my device. But the v8 version dont ask me. I tried to connect it several times new, but nothing changed. Is there a method to set the option manually? Where are the bluetooth setting files located in the android system? Does anybody know it and can help me?

Thanks!

Hello, and thank you all very much for all your hard work! I'm new to this forum, but have been trying to install Android on this phone for about a week now. I've finally been successful with installing Twister on my 16g model. I've installed to Internal Storage with a 13g fat32, 1.2g ext4, and approx. 400m swap. I ended up having to edit the startup.txt and fstab to mmcblk0p6 and mmcblk0p7 respectively, but the step I wanted to mention doing especially which I never actually saw a post about was to edit the loadmod (as well as loadmod.wm though I'm not sure if it was necessary) to also point to mmcblk0. I'm not entirely sure if I shouldn't have, but it seems to now be working. Also of note, I do not have a SIM or an sd card in this phone. Anyway, thanks again. Btw, if any of this sounds false to you experts, I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks.

Thanks for your feedback, it will be useful for others users!

For loadmod modification: it will be appreciated if you test your system works without it and you will report here results.

Bye
