I see then with this solution wouldn't it be easy to make a workaround, or is that something impossible?

I'll look at the code and ask HCDRJacob to assist me too. We may be able to fix it properly.

Uploading a new build to the kitchen and I'll upload a prebake shortly after. This will fix the setup script to format the system as ext4 and disable the volume key wake.

Stock launcher, USB and wifi tethering in the rom. I've added the fix for call quality. Battery life is good. I don't have anything to compare it with but it certainly is better than I've had on the ZTE Blade. My phone is currently at 40% battery with 8 hours runtime, wifi always on with facebook chat, plume, gtalk logged in and active. Also I've been playing games earlier so that will affect battery a bit.


With regards to call quality, is it louder? When I am walking down a road that is quite busy I really can't hear the caller :)

Wondering does the GPU render UI?
If not this should help...
@/system/build/prop
Default:
debug.sf.hw=0
New:
debug.sf.hw=1
Makes certain things snappier !

It should be accelerated by default. On the blade it was disabled due to some EGL errors. Usually a manufacturer will disable this by adding "debug.sf.hw=0" to the build.prop. Huawei haven't done this here and performance is sufficiently quick for me to believe it's enabled.

Okay sounds good to know, well then I shall try out the ROM !


**EDIT**
I am wondering will you add a reboot and go to recovery mode when the power button is used?

Hello guys,

I have a question.

Actually I have a stock B136 before and installed B160 custom ROM. My question is, if I wanted to use this ROM, what should I do? Is there any procedure first? Or just do it like how I flashed my stock ROM to B160?

Thanks! :)

Make sure you have the latest recovery image installed, copy the rom to your sd card and reboot into recovery. Install the rom as normal. If you don't wipe data then you should be able to keep your currently installed apps. Of course for best performance you want to wipe data and install fresh. The rom supports google sync so once you've set up your google account your applications should be automatically re-installed.

Hey fibble I am wondering is this kernel okay with the newest setCPU, as they have added a new tab allowing direct undervolting through software.

It's planned for a future release

Um.. that's a mistake. I'll fix it in the kitchen, but prebake will have to stay with the small cosmetic mistake.

Thanks for confirming that. I'll test the new lib myself and see if it breaks my camera. If it doesn't then I'll roll it out for everyone.

Yes, so I'm confused.

Anyway I've pushed liboemcamera.so to my phone and it's working fine. It's quite odd.
