Pulse Mini MG Custom Rom r3

I renamed the rom as I now used mike's customrom as base, therefore it will be called "MGcustomrom". M for mike. G for gforums. mkay? :-)

*** Back from vacations. ***

**** This one is working on my pulse mini (UK), but you use it at your own risk ****

credits: Paul, flibblesan, mike (m2te), Darktremor, CM, ogiogi, ...

Now with working WIFI/3G and USB-SD-Mounting!!
Gallery Fixed
Working A2SD

Instructions (07/26 Updated):
* no need to flash original rom on 1st step anymore *

0.) Ensure your battery is fully loaded.
1.) Be sure to have installed a recovery image:
http://android.modac...on-your-device/
I recommend using AmonRA!
2.) Start recovery mode by pressing "green call button" und "volume up" together while powering on.
3.) Choose "partitioning" and select 0 MB Swap. I recommend 256/512 MB Ext2.
4.) Additionaly do a wipe of data and dalvik cache and power off.
5.) Download the zipped custom rom here:
http://daten.gforums...mrom-signed.zip
or here (release r3 if problems occur...)
http://daten.gforums...mrom-signed.zip
Copy (don't extract!) the zip file to the root of your sd card.
6.) Start recovery mode again by pressing "green call button" und "volume up" together while powering on.
Choose "Install zip from sd", select the zip file and press the pad-button to start installation.
When finished, go back and select "reboot now" from the menu.

(note: first boot takes some time...)
(note2: now you can wipe as you like...:-)

Good luck!

Thanks for your feedback.
Let's wait for more people to try this.

I just redownloaded the rom myself, copied to my sd and tried to flash it.
Installation works fine for me!

By the way, I am using the "ClockwordMod Recovery v1.8.1.4" Recovery Image.
Give it a try, if you are not yet using it. My rom is *not* signed, but this way it can be installed.

No idea, why you get this error...

Hi,

I've just been playing, it appears using ClockwordMod Recovery v1.8.1.4 works while AmonRA Recovery 1.6.2 doesn't, interesting!!

I'll try to do a file comparison with my update.zip to see if there are any significant differences.

It's because the zip is not signed....AmonRA needs a signed file.
If someone likes signing the file...:-) maybe for the next release I find some time.
Should be no problem for you to install clockwordmod recovery before flashing.

That explains the issue then. I can sign files if you need.

I booted it up, seems to have broken my wifi and USB mounting. I've put my update.zip back on my phone and the Wifi is back but the USB mounting is still broke, when this happened to me before I needed to install one of the stock Huawei roms to get the functionality back.


I'm currently uploading my update.zip which seems to work well for me to 4shared, it's not modded as much as this one, it's just rooted and with a modified framework-res.apk so there is still some pink but it may help the effort to get a generic working rom.

I have put my custom rom up here-

http://www.4shared.c...sRomSigned.html

Notes-

It is based on the T-Mobile UK rom U8110V100R001C85B215SP02TMOUK from the Huawei web site.

Includes a customised framework-res.apk file to remove the majority of the pink.

Rooted - Superuser.apk and busybox installed.

Thanks mike...you could edit your post with a short description of your rom?

I have also some sd card issues, no idea how they come. "Rootexplorer" for example finds the sdcard without any problems...
WiFi is working for me, but I needed a reboot to get it connected.

Hopefully we can resolve these issues somehow....

** Please use ClockwordMod Recovery v1.8.1.4" Recovery Image, as the rom isn't signed **

IMO clockwork 2.5.0.1 should do same job (if not better, its way newer version). was trying to build my own rom these days but never went to putting it to phone damn storms these days cut my adsl, electricity ...

Ooh nice. Well this saves me having to make a Pulse Mini rom from scratch. I'll have a nosey at this as I'm quite interested to see how you managed to get the big pulse rom working on the mini pulse.

By the way, what kernel are you using? Is it the standard Pulse Mini kernel from another rom? The Pulse Mini has full kernel source available so should be easy to add various useful things such as compcache, swap support, iptables.

flibblesan,

I am using the original kernel. I only used APKs from your rom.
My base image is pauls r1 custom rom. this is the original UK image with some modifications.
I realized, that all your deodexed apks just run fine also on the pulse mini, so I replaced the original apps step by step with apks from your FLB mod.

Additionally, I added some of the patches, you also did on your flb rom and did some own stuff.

Compiling a kernel for Android is not in my range I think. I saw, that they offer the source files, but I'm not that experienced in compiling a kernel for android devices....

best, gforums

Thank you gforums!!!

Finally got rid of the "PINK" YAY :(

Have been using R3 with no problems, downloading R4 now.

Again thanks I love that we have a real rom for the Pulse Mini at Last and I know this is only the start.

***UPDATE***

Okay i've had to switch back to g3 as launcherpro was a tad unstable on g4, constant FC's that screwed everything up if it was set a default home screen. So i'm back on g3 which works fine except for the gallery app which didn't work so i've replaced it with the original one again and everything is fine now.

Loving this rom so far and can't wait to see whats to come.

Glad so see you're happy with it.
I have r4 on mine and will see if launcher pro works well.

From my side, there are currently no updates planned (very busy!) but maybe someone else will do updates based on my rom.

WTF!

I am still experience issues with the data connection.
programs don't get a connection after the first reboot of the phone.

From time to time, it is working. Like at the moment.
But is doesn't look very stable.

Whats with your phones?

best!

You should be able to make some useful modifications to the kernel simply by unpacking the boot.img then the ramdisk and editing init.rc

Package it back up and it should work fine. I tried doing this myself but, for some reason, I'm unable to unpack the boot.img (the tools I use give me an error saying it's not g'zipped)

I am getting intermittent conntection on wifi and 3g, and I cannot mount the SD card over the USB connection, but the general speed of the phone is far smoother than it ever was on the TMOB image.

yes those seem to be the two most outstanding bugs for now. I hope someone might be able to fix them. I certainly can't do this :-/

@flibblesan: Will see if I get the boot.img extracted somehow.
