I have modified the update script to only install new boot.img + new dhd.ko module. It worked well on my liquid a1 (running custom rogers rom). Should work on any acer based 2.2 roms I think. But I cant guarantee ;) use at own risk.

I did not do any performance test before and after, maybe someone else can do that :) Cant say I see any difference, but I did not expect that.


Hi koudelka, could it damage the hardware of a1? That kernel is compiled for LiquidE...

No the worst that can happen is that you device don't boot but if that happen just launch recovery and flash another rom.

Anyone use this over LCR yet? Too lazy to reflash in case this bombs my ROM.

I copied the update.zip and image folder to my sd card, turned the phone off, now it wont even turn on? Might be a fluke.....I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, tried plugging it in, no power. Any thoughts?

Ended up plugging the sd card into my laptop and deleting the two files, then the phone booted right up.

this is on a liquid e with 2.75 metal

Flashed the patch to LCR 1.1.2 with koud's update.zip...

MD5 of init.rc, init.salsa.rc and default.prop stay the same. No clue how this patch works or if it was patched at all.

My Linpack is 28.8 now (up from 26 ish, but that's not really any different)
Quadrant went from 880 to 900

Basically I notice nothing. Less than 10% difference in scores = not noticeable.

After flashing,
uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.29 #2 PREEMPT Tue Oct 5 01:50:22 CST 2010 armv7l GNU/Linux

I'm thinking there is some good stuff in the .so files, but I'm too lazy to check because LCR works too damn well.

Linpack before flashing - about 26.5
After flashing... it's only 25?

that can't be determined the performance after applying the patch ;)
Maybe run a few times to get an average result

Just to clarify, the first post has the full update.zip, then koudelka stripped it down to a lesser version. What was the reason for this? Would the full update work on a FroyoMetal running on an A1 device like mine?

flashed the new rom for ferrari, still feel very lag on the default launcher (but much more smooth after switch to Go launcher), quadrant score increase from <700 to between 850 ~ 1000 which is appx same with Metal Froyo's performance ;) but i miss the acer Shell 4.0...is that anyway to install on top of ferrari rom?
