By inserting a new MicroSD card with ext3 partitioned, will apps2sd automatically be enabled?

Yes, but if you have apps on your internal flash those will be unavailable as it will automaticly switch to Apps2SD.

I solved this by running "a2sd remove" before partitioning my SD-card. Then do an "a2sd reinstall" after having booted up with a partitioned card in the phone. That worked for me. I'm running with my apps on a 512Mb EXT3 partition right now.

Which version of flash lite is included? And does it work with the browser, or only standalone?

It's the same version as they use here: http://forum.samdroi...owser-too-1688/
I've only managed to get it to work i "standalone" mode but the Spica guys seems be able to get it work in the Browser but that didn't work for me.

Does this ROM also suffer from UI glitches/artifacts like the 1.0.0 version of the BladeVillain ROM had ?

No, the addon for HW UI also applies the "glitch-fix".

Hi Kallt_Kaffe,

this looks to be a great ROM but why don't you add the HW_UI as default? Why would anyone not want their interface hardware accelerated? Would there be some issues with adding this by default like much higher battery drain?

Cheers

I always disable this in the Modaco ROM as it noticeably slows down the phone.

Im unsure what to do right now, flash with or without HW_UI
What's exactly the difference ? Without HW_UI, will I suffer performance loss in games ?
Thanks

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but to remove the 'Acceleration', all you'd have to do is reflash the main rom. Shouldn't be any need to wipe anything ...
Try it and decide for yourself?

As long as you've got superuser (and you do on this rom) all you have to do is edit the following line in the file /system/build.prop

debug.sf.hw=0

0= hardware acceleration disable, 1=hardware acceleration enable.

So use something like root Explorer, navigate to /system and find file build.prop, remount as R/W and edit the file as above and save.
Finally just do a reboot to affect the change, then once rebooted you can go back and open the file with your text editor to make sure the change has taken.

That's 100% correct and the rumours about slowdowns is what kept me from making it default. I haven't had time to do any real comparing myself, but if anyone does some serious comparing, please share the results.

Yes, but the HW UI addon also replaces gralloc.msm7k.so with a non-stock version (that's the "glitch-fix" btw) so I'd recommend a full reflash, but no wipe to disable it.

The only slowdown I've experienced with HW enabled is with the Android Launcher. If I use another launcher like LauncherPro or ADW then I experience no slowdown at all.

Thanks for the quick and detailed replies guys (oh!dougal, xzyk, kallt_kaffe and fibblesan), really appreciate it !

One more question. I am currently running the MoDaCo R4 ROM with A2SD. When I make a backup in ClockWork, is my A2SD partition also being backupped ? Else I don't know how to backup it, since Windows doesn't see my ext2 partition.
Backupping just to be on the safe side, whenever I decide to switch back.

Thanks

hi, i have a problem with this rom,i installed the desire theme(i think its also called espresso framework) and the graphics have gone all wracked up.there is a green rectangle box with a cross at the top of the screen on the lockscreen. it didn't look like that with orange base rom (modaco rom and sabs rom). also tried the new rom on villianrom and it had the same issue but the old one didn't. wondered if anyone had spotted this?

I just did a Clockwork backup prior to wiping and installing Froyo - it does appear to autumatically backup your SD card partition - do a full Ti backup as well though, just to be sure :rolleyes:.

Thanks
