I noticed some guy uploaded "CM7 for Andypad Pro" video on youtube with "it will be fully functional" and "please donate" message...

I don't have any objection who really need donation for his work. but I have to say goodbye because I don't want to any relation to money.

in the past, I saw some trouble. some guy, who used my CM for some(non-rockchip) tablet, started his own project for "make it perfect" with donation. it was failed. people blamed him. it was sad story.

I believe devs in here can achieve your goal. but I'm chicken. I don't want any possibility of trouble. I'm doing my work for my fun. I also want to make it perfect. but I can't promise anything.

really sorry.

EDIT:
I'm still working for CM7 for RK2918 myself. anyone can use my repo freely if I can make something. (probably progress will be slow)

and it seems there are some other forks,

http://www.forotable...-para-bq-Kepler
https://github.com/o...horp/Kepler_CM7

http://www.androidia...ingerbread.html
https://github.com/eldiau

I guess you can make "team" with them. it seems they also could understand my output very quickly.
I wish, in near future, I can use perfect CM7 for RK2918 without my effort! :)

That was SamiBeck. It also signals the end of any public stuff from me (although I am way behind). Thanks for the help fun_, you have helped drag the andypad out of the stone ages.

- throws some dirty words at Sami Beck and sends him to the fire pit -

I'd like to thank fun_ for helping us all :) without him we would still use the crappy old ROM. Let's hope we can fix some of the bugs ourselves.
Currently on my checklist: fix brick after filesystem modifications (adb push & even local sh scripts), bluetooth, VE calibration simplified, camera(s), hdmi

All developers are entitled to advertise donation links as long as they are not under conditions such as "donate and I'll complete the rom" as others have done before.

If you have an issue with Sami looking for donations then please take it up with him directly.

One last thing.. what you write in forum reports is still covered by the forum rules. Keep bad language and insults about other members to yourself and use the report post button ONLY when somebody has broken forum rules.

I'm sorry if I broke rule here.

what I wanted to say is "I don't want to see(have relation to) trouble(will not happen, but possible) around donation for future work" because of my past experience. I don't want to force this rule to others. probably I had to leave silently...

I have no objection about donation itself. I know CM devs also ask donation. and, as a fact, I also got some donations(some tablets). but there was a promise "I'll do some work but I can't promise anything for my output" between me and donators. (I'm selfish, sorry)

--
btw if CM devs have interest to this work, it's good news. I don't have big team on my other CM porting work. it's not good. progress is slow. trouble takes my time for dev work, so avoiding it is necessary as much as possible.

I 'm looking forward to good result by devs here and CM team!

sorry for my noise.

I wouldn't go that far, but I doubt there will be much that someone can just install any time soon. Seems some people just want to get rich quick by holding it hostage, which in itself is silly as I doubt many AndyPad owners would give a toss about upgrading the rom, let alone paying for it, assuming there are more than a hundred of them left who haven't thrown them away in disgust. So ultimately all that happens is that any sensible person will not want anything to do with it as they either have a job or morals.

Still, hacking around gives me something to do other than get arrested for drunkeness, or whatever.

I'm planning on releasing a fixed kernel and a new libsensor to get around the flipped x and strange gyroscope action respectively, although i'm sure someone will beat me to it.

Off the top of my head:
Bluetooth
Camera
Corrupting /system

Also, Here is my github. https://github.com/t...ypad_andypadpro

It's designed to work with the stock andypad rom as opposed to the one that fun_s rom requires. This means it doesnt need any extra code for the screen flipping, seems a bit smoother, etc. Still waiting on my replacement libsensors to finish writing itself but probably not going to get that far at least until the weekend. This one might also have fixed the system corruption but its a bit early to tell, but two days without a reinstall isn't bad going.

Some really nice work you did there ;) I'll focus some more on Camera this weekend, check the apk's smali code, since stock camera.apk seems to work.
You're on some IRC where I can reach you?

Great job!

Thanks. It's getting there, slowly. I can't figure out why bluetooth is still not working so I think it's going to be a case of doing some proper debugging to try and work it out. I also want to look at getting the accelerated video playback working which should be pretty easy.

And I don't really get time for IRC, but it would be good to collaborate a bit. Drop me a message on github and we will work something out :)

I'm sorry, i'm no coder, but I am more than willing to help out with testing. I have just had a replacement Pad Pro sent out with their own updated ROM, but now I've lost all use of Google Apps and Books. I was using it as an ebook reader, now i can't get to them.

I have CyanogenMod in my x10 mini and was/am looking forward to it on the Pad.

Regards,
Tichy

I've been searching for someone with the latest ROM for quite some time... Can you please do an rkdump from your system, backup partition (mtd tables) and upload it to a public service?
Pseudo-install has been instructed here: http://androtab.info.../devel/rkutils/
You'll need temp root with an app called z4root, which can be installed from market or 'adb install z4root.apk'.

I would really, really appreciate this :)

Hi, I have been trying to get z4root working without success. the newest version i have found is 1.3.0 z4root just bombs out then when you try to re-open it says it has "stopped unexpectidly".

This updated AndyPad Pro ROM seams even less stable than the original. Also when I first enable Bluetooth the device name comes up as 'Cherrypad Turbo' is this a rip from another Rock chipset pad?

Are you sure there was an SD in the device? I think z4root requires an SD...

Anyway, could you try to use this tool then? Make sure usb-debugging is on, and run the batch file (Windows-only).
http://mediafire.com/?8nvdyuu9a3i05x1

If on Linux, please execute the batch adb commands manually with android-sdk installed.

Thanks & good luck!
