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 :)
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?
That's great, can you provide a link to the OMX zip that works with this ROM?
EDIT: after a bit of googling, I belive this is the one: http://www.modaco.co...ics-hq-youtube/ will give it a try and post back later :)
EDIT2: got it working! WOOHOO high quality youtube with no lag :)
Details: I had to edit one file in the omx patch.zip, delete the first line
"assert(getprop("ro.build.version.release") == "4.0.4");" of /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script
otherwise it would not flash (complained about version being wrong...)
updated/fixed zip for this ROM to get hq youtube: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jakxktpwk8ihla0/omx%20patch.zip
about the harware decoding, have you seen this: http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=33374614
-Modified libstagefright to use legacy Qualcomm OMX IL libs on ICS for MSM7x27 SoCs
-working hardware-accelerated video playback
-enable HW playback of AVI, DivX, WMA and RealMedia formats
-Makes HD youtube work on MSM7x27.
Any chance you could build a new verions of this rom with these libs? I'm sure others on here may be intersted in it. Apparantly it is harder to port the libs to JB...
EDIT: forgot to add, here is a stable Blade rom that uses these libs successfully:
