My friends, I just want to inform you that I will no longer continue to develop this ROM, since, unfortunately, I don't know what else I could implement, in order to upgrade it.
There's one thing I would like to implement but I simply don't know how to do it and, for what I've seen all over the internet, no one does. I'm talking about swipe to kill recent apps. No one, so far, was able to implement that on Gingerbread. Besides, Gingerbread is old and no one seems to care about it anymore.
Anyway, I've enjoyed developing this ROM and I believe that this is the best Gingerbread ROM, at least best looking, available for the Crescent.
- Completely new Status Bar, Jelly Bean 4.2.2 style
- Minor fixes on Contacts.apk and framework-res.apk
Wipe cache and dalvik-cache, after installing the update and before rebooting the phone. If your coming from V2.3, probably you won't need to wipe anything.
After a month of hard work, I was finally able to completely revamp the status bar. This was not an update on the previous status bar. This was a complete overall modding over the stock Ginger Bread status bar.
All previous status bar were based on AndroIum's status bar, which was based on CM 7.2 status bar. Therefore, and since now your status bar is based on the stock Ginger Bread one, you will no longer be able to see status bar in landscape mode, nor you'll be able to adjust brightness by scrolling your finger on the status bar without expanding it.
Anyway, check out the screens. By looking into them, you'll be able to see all new status bar features. Besides what you'll see, I inform you that you will also have shortcuts to alarms, and calendar, by touching the clock, or the date, respectively.
*Stock Ginger Bread Status Bar*
*New PirateDroidV2 Status Bar*
Due to a second layout bug, that no one so far has been able to solve it (where the close drag handle gets bellow the toggles, causing a major visual horrible thing), the status bar now always is dropped up/down completely. You'll see what I mean as soon as you start to handle it.
The profile image file has to be stored on your SD Card and, every time you reboot, it will take a few moments to appear.
Flashlight toggle will not work and will FC your status bar. Do not use it. Remove that toggle for the time being. I will try to fix this...although I think it will be quite hard to accomplish it.
Touch any toggle to activate/deactivate it, long press it to access it's settings.
How could I possible develop a ROM, and modify/test new stuff, without USB Debugging working correctly?
Strange that it's not working on your end, that's for sure.
By the way, you're on latest version, right?
It's just that, on earlier versions, USB Debugging is, indeed, working but you have no visual information about it. I've only activated the USB Debugging visual information on V2.3. Have you tried to connect your phone to your PC and tried to launch adb commands to see that, in fact, it's not working?
Yes, this thread is still alive. I'm simply having to much to do on real life that's keeping me from coming here as much as I wanted.
I'm also trying to come up with a new status bar and that, also, is keeping me pretty much busy.
Now, first things first.
WiFi connection issues appeared on everyone that had changed the phone's TPT original config. That's why I've mentioned on the OP that I recommend you to flash a stock TPT with, at least, 200MB system partition before flashing the ROM. I also delivered you, on the OP, a stock TPT with 220MB system. If you're a P736E user, do flash that stock TPT and, afterwards, flash the ROM.
Internal memory, and by internal I mean /data/app, is indeed on the sdcard. Internal memory is not supposed to lower to ridiculous sizes since, every time your reboot, the INT2EXTV2+ script "does it's magic". Anyway, the script needs internal 100MB for every 500MB external in order to work properly. I've mentioned that on the OP as well.
"eap-sim", "FreeWifi_secure", etc... I haven't touch that, so it is as it was on the stock ROM from which this ROM is based on. On other words, I haven't touched on wpa_supplicant.conf.
If anyone knows a better config for that file, please do tell.
