TECHNOLOGY PREVIEW : not for everyday use

Let me introduce cm9 for Pulse. This time it is our own build compiled from source.

Thanks to dtox125 for the first source compilation.
Thanks goes also to tilal6991 for development/maintenance of cm9 for u8150 and general inspiration.

Requirements:
1. properly formatted SD card:
- ext2 partition (I use 512 MB). Rom won't work without it.
- swap partition 64 MB (not less)
2. /system partition not less than 110 MB. (Pulse u8220 users: prior installation of TRE or CHT8000 rom is required to achive such partition size).

Installation instructions:
- backup your current rom in case something go wrong;
- make FULL clean: "wipe data/factory reset" AND "format system";
- install Zip via CWM recovery. Reboot. Optionally install gapps.

Works:
- display,
- touchscreen,
- keypad,
- jogball,
- sound,
- radio (can reload sometimes),
- bluetooth,
- wifi,
- usb: mass storage, adb
- sd card,
- backlight/brightness,
- rotation,
- vibrator,
- native A2SD

Doesn't work:

- mobile data network
- camera
- gps
- keypad LEDs
- video playback
- hardware acceleration
- hardware accelerated boot animation

First load takes much time - at least 10 minutes, adb can be unreachable during the period.
Don't be scared of broken boot animation.

Post your feedback!

cm9-u8220-20120309.zip

gapps-ics-4.0.1-small-u8220.zip (Optional)
u8220 will die if install big memory consumers like Maps, Market, etc. u8230 should be better.

Is this a binary port or compiled from sources with modified pulse device tree?

Some screenshots maybe - remember the cryptic adb commands?

Hi,

Great job guys with all ROMS!!
It's fantastic to follow this and other posts. Every day I enjoy reading your topics.

This weekend I would like install one o two of these ROMS (perhaps CM7.2 or X3) but I don't know how I can obtain the size of /system in my Pulse to know (if it's necessary) to install TRE ROM.

When I execute in Terminal Emulator the df -h command these are the results:

Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
tmpfs 115.9M 44.0K 115.8M 0% /dev
tmpfs 115.9M 0K 115.9M 0% /mnt/asec
tmpfs 115.9M 0K 115.9M 0% /mnt/obb
/dev/block/mtdblock4 170.0M 88.7M 81.3M 52% /system
/dev/block/mtdblock6 222.4M 143.6M 78.8M 65% /data
/dev/block/mtdblock6 70.0M 1.9M 68.1M 3% /cache
/dev/block/mtdblock6 472.5M 82.3M 365.8M 18% /sd-ext

I see that /system is greater than 110 MB that it's necessary for your ROM.
Could I install your ROM without install TRE ROM?

Sorry if I'm telling a stupid question.

Ah!! At this moment, my ROM is CM7.1 with .29 kernel

Thanks a lot.

I have to say that this mod is awesome! It installed on ext2 256 and swap 32mb. It is not slow at all when oc-ed to 710. I just hope that radio and wifi can be fixed. If so, I found my daily rom :)

Thanks pier!

true, radio and wifi are top priorities.

256 MB ext2 is fine.
32 mb swap is a bit low for u8220 - it utilizes more than that. Fine for u8230.

/dev/block/mtdblock4 170.0M 88.7M 81.3M 52% /system

you shall be fine if so. But I've never seen u8220 with 512 MB ROM, strange.

ok here are the device tree and vendor:
http://www.mediafire...159anrliounvq3o
http://www.mediafire...xb3bes8wnslxb58

also you need to modify vendor/cm/config/common.mk and del some istall apps to make it fit to pulses patition size.
