s2e is only exclusive to cyanogenmod CM, use mount2sd instead.

Have noticed lately people asking me for the Gingerbread Google Apps Zip that was hosted on my MediaFire a/c, for those still looking for it, linky for http://www.mediafire...0828-signed.zip.

 

Apologies for not getting back to add this heads-up. :) Enjoy!

Good Rom

 

If there's any further security issues, the most I can do, is incorporate fixes as soon as word gets out,

 

Other than that, thanks for the kind words about the ROM. :)

 

Y'all have no idea what that does to me, onions in my eyes to see happy users... :)

I was having bad battery drain issues with the CM7 eco rom by JVentura. It wasn't probably the roms fault as it had been working just fine for a year or so.

 

I gave this a try as the author seems to still care, wiped cache and data, installed gapps.

 

For some reason now I have a bigger issue - using GPS by Google Maps or any other app reboots the phone almost instantly. I tried rebooting with or without GPS on and toggling it, no change. As said on this thread GPS will not work if you toggle it off so using it on-demand and being always enabled is how it's supposed to work. Even if I reboot with GPS on and then try Google Maps or c:geo, they both will reboot the phone in a matter of seconds when it tries to fix GPS location.

 

I have a Gen2 Blade with 'B' TPT of 128MB system partition from this forum. GPS was working fine with other roms. Any ideas? I'd love to get back to AOSP for a change.

I think that Your system folder is a bit smaller for this rom.... I use a costum tpt of 185mb to system and it works great.

df shows 16MB free after unpacking the rom and gapps, I didn't see any out of space errors when I unpacked them with CWM. As far as I know, the system partition is ro (as indicated by mount) so it shouldn't cause any issues as long as all the rom data (including gapps) fits in and even gapps upgrades are installed in the /data partition, not /system. This would make sense as then "factory reset" means wiping /data and /cache and you have a pristine /system to start from again. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

I use 128Mb system because of how tight the internal storage is and how easy it is to fill with essential apps that can't be moved to SD card. Also if I'm correct above any unused free space in /system is just eating usable storage for internal storage apps and configuration. This isn't that big of an issue with 2GB+ internal storage but with this older model it gets tight really fast.

 

I can try a larger TPT but given what I see here it shouldn't make any difference.

Hi.

I also think that the system folder is a little small.

I found for some reason - a programmer may know why - but you need to keep about 20mb of free space in both ROM  and RAM or things start falling over!.

 

I have 160mb reserved for the ROM and use Ludovic Renault's most excellent "Apps2ROM" app (from the Store) to fill up the spare space in the ROM - works for me :-)

 

Also use 3c's "System Tuner" - to tweak your phone - their newer "Android Tuner" I find can easily crash this ROM.

 

You'll find it's worth sorting out the phone  to run this most excellent ROM - and just add any bell's and whistles that you need from the "store".

 

Enjoy.

Bill.

I've taken the advice from both of you and wiped the phone clean once again, but as I'm a developer myself I was intrigued to find out if the problem was persistent so I didn't repartition the phone yet.

 

Installed just c:geo first from Play, on first run no issues. After I upgraded it from the Play Store it crashed the phone once. After that I reinstalled all my apps but have no crashing. I'll try wiping once again and reinstall some test apps. If I can at least have one crash per reinstall consistently then I'll add more space and see if it can be reproduced. "Required" free space on ROM sounds silly but at least with consistent enough test case I could prove to myself it really helps.

 

Thanks to both of you, will keep digging.

 

EDIT:

 

Did a few more wipes with 128MB /system, I almost always got one crash with Google Maps on first run. After that it worked fine, so did c:geo. Finally I repartitioned with 160MB /system and for good measure also the SD card to avoid having any config/cache for any apps. After installing everything and running Google Maps it once again crashed the phone on first run. Again that was the only crash so far, both c:geo and Google Maps work now.

 

I'm fairly sure at this point 128MB /system was not the real issue but rather something went horribly wrong in /data permanently until wipe (maybe 128MB /system made it more likely/frequent). Removing Google Maps own cached data didn't make any difference as c:geo also inhibited the same behaviour.

 

Anyway, at least it works now. Aside from low fps in UI animations my battery life rocks again. Thanks.

Hi.

Funny thing is "Google Maps" has always caused issues on my OSF even when it was stock Orange 2.1

Some updates worked better than others.

At most I've used 4.1 on the Blade and it's the only Android phone I have.

 

So far this AOSP rom has been very nice!

I think I need to try something else anyway. While this rom seems to be the best one yet, today when I went out to do some geocaching the phone rebooted 5 times when gps was activating. Very unfortunate.

I still use Swedish Snow, which is the best ROM for Blade. I used it during my last 3 weeks trip in Cuba. Without any problem for recording my GPS tracks.
