    I'm guessing that's running on a rooted phone. Do you believe the framerate/quality is better than using the Snap Camera HDR app?

    Just dug up this topic, and was happy to find some extra suggestions i missed earlier. Thanks.

    So it is possible to get a resolution of 720p? But while sacrificing framerate? I guess this video was made with a different app? If so, could you tell me which one?

    So you're saying you get 850x480? But that still is 480p, not 720p... yet it is better than the stock 640x480(?) of course, but still no 720p.

    Adreno 203 720p recording?
    Hi,

    my brother bought a Y300, which has a lot of similarities with the G510, including GPU and RAM. But because there is no Y300 section, i'll ask my question here. There is a lot of confusion about the video recording capabilities. A lot of retailers are still putting it at 720p for both devices, yet apparently, both only record at 480p. According to a poster on a German forum, the Adreno 203 is capable of 720p recording, hence lots of early info stated both phones to do 720p recording. Even Huawei on their own website. But this guy claims licensing fees were raised, making Huawei stick with 480p recording.

    http://www.android-h...et-hoerbar.html

    Yet a google search shows that certain XDA forum members say the hardware is incapable of 720p, only in combination with a quad-core CPU.

    http://forum.xda-dev...26#post40777426

    Wikipedia seems to think so as well

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_%28system_on_chip%29

    So... any chance of getting 720p video on these devices? Is there a possibility devs could find a way around this, or is this a no-go?

    Does that mean 720p video recording on the Y300?

    Errr... maybe the link you posted as a guide to follow? lol

    I'll try again later tonight.

    Edit: it seems to have worked!

    Edit2: so step by step, if others are interested:

    -enable USB debugging on the phone
    -connect the phone to your PC
    -on the pc, browse to a folder with adb.exe
    -shift+right click in this folder, choose to open a cmd window in this location
    -type (or paste with right mouse click) "adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db" and press enter
    -open the settings.db file you just pulled (the file will be located in the same folder on your pc), with SQLite Browser.
    -go to "browse data" and select the table "secure".
    -click "new record", a blank row will appear at the bottom of the table.
    -double click on the blank "name" field and input "wifi_idle_ms" (without quotes).
    -double click on the "value" field and input the timeout you want, in milliseconds (ie: "60000" for 1 minute).
    -click save. Close SQLite Browser
    -open the cmd window again (same principle) and type (or paste) "adb push settings.db /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db" and press enter.
    -restart phone & disconnect the cable

    Not working either. I get "adb: not found"

    Just to make sure: the phone is connected through USB, debug mode turned on. I open CMD in a folder with adb.exe (i use the same folder i used to install the twrp recovery). I type "adb shell". I get a # on a new line. I type "su" and enter, but nothing changes, i type the line you quoted above, and i get "adb: not found".

    Yeah... that helps me one step further, but i get stuck immediately after. When i type...


    busybox cp /dbdata/databases/com.android.providers.settings/settings.db /sdcard/settings.db i get... cp: can't stat 'busybox cp /dbdata/databases/com.android.providers.settings/settings.db' no such file or directory

    Edit: nevermind; i downloaded "wifi sleep free" which is an app that lets you set the time-out as well. I'll test this out first before bothering people any further. Things never work like you want them to anyway, so this is a bit too much of a hastle if you are not familiar with stuff like this.

    That explains a lot, but these instructions don't work for me. When i'm in CMD prompt, and type "adb shell", i get a message that it is not a valid command. Phone is in USB debug mode. It's the same problem i had trying to install twrp recovery, which then was solved clicking the .cmd file in the folder. But that doesn't help me here of course. Is there an other way to change the code in the settings file?

    The guy in your link said he made an app, but it costs €4 and doesn't seem to work for a lot of people.

    Is it possible using the terminal in this ROM? Or can it be flashed somehow?

    Very happy with this ROM but i've noticed battery drain is worse (it drains faster) than on LiquidNext previously. In fact, even on SmartassV2 (which i used on LN as well) it doesn't seem to do much if any better than the stock ROM.
    I've also noticed wifi stays on even when the screen is off, even though in my wifi settings it says to sleep when screen is turned off. Might be the reason why battery drain isn't what i hoped? Or is it because LN used an undervolted kernel? And is that possible with this ROM to undervolt the kernel? And does it make the phone less stable? (EDIT: wifi does turn off after a while, just have to wait a bit).
    Still curious about the camera app in this ROM compared to stock. Seems to perform equally (bad) as the stock camera, but maybe the camcorder is improved? Is metal camera better and can we flash it (see previous post of mine)?

    Seems to be running great. My GF (for whom i installed this ROM) is very happy after her first day of use. Says the phone is much faster and responsive. I put CPU on Smartass V2 and ranging from the lowest to one notch above standard (882MHz?), i always used these settings when running LiquidNext in the past, which gave great battery life for me. I also installed Swype, which seems to be responsive enough and after all the apps are installed (including maps, flash, playstore, whatsapp...) there is still over 150 of 200 MB free of internal storage. I partitioned 1GB as EXT on the SD card and set a swap of 64MB (though it wasn't really needed imo with 512MB RAM), since the standard was at 32. I used an 8GB class 10 card.

    I also love the power widget which, like LiquidNext, lets you set conditions for 3G/2G/Wifi use. When Wifi is on, turn off 3G. When wifi is off, turn off sync... etc. If anybody knows if an app like this exists for non-rooted devices (and i mean which lets you set these conditions, not just the buttons), let me know. Stuff like that should be standard imo.

    PS: one question, which is the standard camera? Is it still the same as the stock? Or is it improved, and if so, how? Could i flash the liquid metal camera app? Or is the one in this ROM better?

    Thanks dude, i just needed to click that file, i was trying to run CMD and navigate to the folder "cd-wise" and run it from there... didn't work. Thanks for the help!

    PS: if i try to verify before install, it says failed... i hope it won't give problems installig without verification.
    PPS: no problems

    I can't get TWRP installed... I've seen youtube vids that let you download goomanager from the store, but i can't find this in the google play store even though the phone is rooted. Probably only for newer Android versions?

    I also tried with fastboot from my PC, but i can't get that to work either. When i open CMD and type fastboot devices... he can't find the phone. In my current recovery, there is no "fastboot" option...

    Edit: i'm doing this from the same pc i used to install malez, so drivers should already be installed and i put the phone in debug mode...

    Thanks, somehow missed that in the OP :/

    When partitioning the SD card, anything i should keep in mind? When i previously tried to move certain apps with Link2SD to the SD card, it said i needed an extra partition on the SD card, set as "primary" i believe? But "EASEUS partition master" says Windows will only recognize the first primary partition. Or do i better just do this in the recovery instead in advance? But which partition should i make the largest (for storing files, like pictures/music/...) and which one smaller (for apps) if Windows only sees the first partition? I guess The first "primary" has to be the large one for storage, and the small one as second partition.
