As far as I remember, cifs module is already built into kernel (all S series kernels have it).
Anyway, cifs is needed for smb support (windows shares), not nfs. Nfs needs different module and is also already supported.

Thanks for the information. I am trying to use CIfsManager for android bur I got connection refused. I sniffed on nfs port 2049...amd indeed not traffic is seen when I try to mount.
Mounting from my laptop is fine. Any idea how I can mount and NFS share to my Android.

Thanks!

Would just like to thank Ceco, and all his associates for a great ROM that has served me well all year, just updated to 2.4, Dolby sound is good, have not had any issues, other than screen flicker on occasions, and increased contrast, maybe a screen calibration issue or display driver, but great every day ROM, I'm very pleased with, many thanks indeed, and keep up the good work.

PS: Would like to see the development of a stable ICS ROM for skate, have tried Paranoid ICS, but too many system crashes and restarts, not stable enough for every day use, though the speed of the OS is amazing, as is the boot times of 30 seconds, also the screen resolution and depth is awesome, but shame it's not stable enough for every day use, surely the ZTE Skate deserves a stable ICS 4 Rom some time soon, maybe I'll make a wish!...................... :rolleyes:

Thanls.

1) Contrast/flicker - yes I know. It is a "bug" in S2 rev1 kernel I hadn't provided fix for in skatie kitchen yet. I recommend flashing normal S2 (not rev1) if it bothers you.

2) I have recently fixed PA crashing issues couple of days ago. It's rock solid now. Check out the PA thread.

Just an update Ceco, have restored my CWM backup of Paranoid ICS, and did the new 03/10 update, including fixes, but didn't go well so cleaned out skate, and did a fresh install, plus your two latest fixes, which do seem to have resolved the crashes, I am going to run with this for some time, to see how things go, though my initial feelings are that there is some memory management issues, and it doesn't seem to like Go Launcher (Lagging), but the crashes have now gone. Would just like to add a few observations:

1) BBC iplayer not working (even with Adobe Flash 10, or 11 for Arm6)

2) Memory Management issues

3) Startup time 4 minutes

4) Root access for Link2SD can be buggy on auto link (occasional failure, due to loss of root access, suspect memory issue)

5) Very small % of program compatibility issues, that should work, but don't

6) Overall speed has been reduced some what.

These are observations and not complaints I must add, for your feedback, hope I have helped in some small way, very much appreciate your expertise Ceco, many thanks again................ ;)

Thanks for feedback :)

Flash doesn't work on ICS, unfortunatelly. armv6 hacked version works on GB roms somehow but it's choppy and nearly unusable. Definitely something that is not designed for our old CPU architecture...
I'm not sure what memory management issues you mean but I wouldn't use GO Launcher because it is somewhat bloated and resource hungry. Try Nova launcher instead. It really makes a difference in speed.
Boot time is subjective. Mine boots in about 1 minute. It depends on how many apps you have installed and if linked to sd-ext then also SD card class/speed matters. Speed can be reduced for some time after first boot - mediascanner needs to finish its job scanning the sd card for media files, I haven't noticed any speed issues myself compared to other ICS roms and older PA builds.

Ceco your update of the 12/10 has resolved the boot time, now coming in at 2 minutes (Class 10 Samsung Card). your Rom update of the 03/10 had some issues with Link2SD, which although was reporting apps linked to Ex2/3, in fact were not, and upon reboot, the system struggled to cope with the fact that the internal Data had exceeded it's limit, had to do a wipe, but same thing happened again, your 12/10 update resolved this and the same number of apps are giving me a data partition of 120 mb free. less wait warnings too, though still cannot use BBC iplayer, and some Air. apps.

Regarding your comment on flash for arm 6, I have never had any issues with it on your Skatie ROM (2.4), where in fact the BBC iplayer plays flawlessly, and as good as my Galaxy s2 and Note. I have Nova as my only Launcher on my Galaxy tab 2, and I know what your referring too regarding it's performance. I'm fully aware of the resource drain of Go launcher, and usually set it up as lean as possible, if Nova had the ifolder opening and closing effect, then I would not bother with Go launcher, though they do maintain a good stream of updates to keep it running good.

Finally just like to say your current revision released on the 12th is the best yet, and has given very little issues so far, much appreciated, thanks again.......... ;)

Excellent rom C3C0. I want to use it but i have a strange problem. With a fresh install (and more than 200 mb in data partition to install apps) when i try to install and app bigger than 30 mb or 40 mb (like some games for example) the system show a message like "you don´t have enought space. The app can not be installed".
is there any solution to this problem?
Great rom and great work in all your roms and specially in PA cm9 (now with hd youtube)

That's because of the cache size. It's 35MB so you can't download bigger files from playstore.
This rom doesn't redirect cache but it is possible to do so by mounting it to sd ext partition in terminal emulator.
Like this (provided you use link2sd and /data/sdext2 exists - that's the ext partition of SD mounted under /data/sdext2 directory)
su
umount /cache
mount -o rw,remount -t rootfs rootfs /
rmdir /cache
mkdir /data/sdext2/cache
ln -s /data/sdext2/cache /cache 

I cannot test it myself right now but if you're familiar with linux commands you get the picture.

Thanks C3C0.

C3C0, i test your commands and they works well .
Another question, wich kernel is better for this rom, your S2 kernel or the kernel included in the update 2.4 (Ceco2 rev.1)?

Excellent rom C3C0 for real. I want to thanks to you. Is the best ROM than all the oters, and want to ask you to upgrade more this ROM.
Also I want to show you some bugs i found on this ROM to fix it... I tested this rom on several Phones and always have a same bugs...

In drawer menu when you turning around phone (left or right) drawer menu can freeze and have to put the finger on the screen to unfreeze it... Try that...
Also when I turning ON/OFF backgound data I have to select it twice often... An it works the same on every phone I tested...

Thats all... The oter things are really great... The MOST STABLE ROM and the fastest also (tested a lot of times with antutu bechmarks)... My best score is 2 660...

And one more Thanks Ceco a lot, and we all want new upgrade of this ROM...


Best Regards

This rom is no longer supported.
Perhaps you could try H3 blues by H3ROS.
It's more up to date and has all the features that skatie has plus some more.

8-O Can we know máx processor freq to obtain this value? Values such that are repeatable? What memory manager system you use (Link2SD, S2E, int2ext...)? What microSD (Class)?

So if this ROM isn't supported anymore , why not creating a TPT to integrate the last update (With latest S2 kernel) ?

Maybe Kitchen Update recommendations like custom TPT Packages made from you as the samples that members could download
without the hassle of upgrading 2x the Skatie Builds ?

Samples :

TPT File > Stock Launcher , Circle Mod for Battery , S2 Kernel , Stock Applications and No-Frills CPU

Has anyone else have problems with the ESPN goals app (UK) on this ROM ? I hadn't used it in a few weeks while I was still on my rooted orange stock ROM. I flashed this custom ROM to my Orange Monte Carlo to get rid of the orange bloatware as i'm about to move to giffgaff and the ROM is pretty good but I can't watch any videos on the ESPN goals app, keeps bringing up an error 1024 message. I'm not sure if it is the ROM, settings or the APP itself. I have tried installing earlier APK versions of the APP but makes no difference and have flash 10.3 installed (don't think that is relevant). Anyone got any suggestions?

Many thanks.
