@ twrock how can i take the black wall paper in Onyx to replace it in other rom please?
...thx...


Unless the rom maker does something unique (Huawei does some times), the default wallpaper is in the framework-res.apk file. /res/drawable/default_wallpaper.jpg.
But to save you time, here you go:

Twrock - on your ROM CRT animation is working for me, on Pier's it didn't. Google sync is wooooow faster, and everything is more responcive. Don't know why....

Hmm, lucky, I guess.:huh:
Oh, just remembered, I did adjust the swappiness to 30 and the sampling_rate to 200000 in the boot image. The swappiness should help responsiveness (reduce lag), but I'd think the sampling_rate would only possibly help with battery life and might reduce responsiveness. But, who knows. Most of the time I'm just guessing at this stuff. ;)

@ twrock and all. hi.recently i port a miui 2.3.7 rom from um840 to u8220/u8230 i notice that once well configured that rom is very fast...think that the launcher in it (adw 1.3.3.56) is helping a lot about fast..but this is not the only thing...may be the system ui apk also help about fast...
i replace your version of adw launcher by adw 1.3.3.56 and the result look faster like cm6/um840 rom( with good configuration of settings launcher).i would like to know if i want to replace onyx system ui apk by miui 2.3.7 system ui apk...what i have to do? i mean do i have to simply to replace system ui apk? ( it is not working stuck on boot and reboot) or do i have to replace also other apk in the same time?

:) i would like to port the rapidity of miui 2.3.7 to onyx and cm7 from pier11 but you already understood that isn't it?
it is half done with new launcher but only half done...if you have some advice
thx

Hi all , been using this Rom for about a week now , really impressed . Battery life better than Styx , no FC's , sometimes a little laggy but nothing to complain about . I have also replaced the original launcher with adw 1.3.3.56 as suggested by desalesouche and can confirm it is fast and smooth . I tried Pier11's CM7 before but couldn't get it to work properly , Twrocks tweaks to create this rom have given me a useable version of Gingerbread , many thanks all

here is the link for Onyx-fast with beats audio improvements...with a good headphone you should hear difference... this rom has the governors from destructors and cpu is set to 710......for those who can't afford 710 cpu take original boot image from first post from that topic and replace it in zip... set adw launcher like told in miui 2.3.7 mod topic in settings/cmsettings/performance/lock home in memory ...personnaly i use jit on... in settings/display/animation/no animations...

try it and tell me what you think about it http://www.mediafire...2azw054rz2k93vo oh i also add in system/etc/initd/ 10darky_zipalign which is supposed to have improvement and i add zipalign in system/bin/ some tweaks in build.prop..... give feed back please :)
will upload also same version with Sony Bravia Engine (improves sharpness and quality of images and video)
in a while
edit :for me sound is working better on u8230 did the same with huawei honor u8660 and sound there even better... :)

I logged in to have a look at what's been going on the past few days (I've been swamped with work). I thought I'd try to implement some of the changes you suggested and update Onyx. But then I saw you had done it already, and then even more! :)
But...., I installed the first version you uploaded and can't get past the initial few seconds of the boot animation before it bootloops. So I can't get it to work on my 8220 as is. Don't know what's wrong.
I'll go ahead and at least test the new Launcher on my version of Onyx. That is one area where I noticed Onyx was significantly slower than Styx, so I hope it helps speed things up.

Edit: BTW, I did a full wipe and formatted /system before installing. That is my typical pattern with any rom installation (to be sure I don't introduce any problems myself).

hi i did 3 things on Onyx= first i add zipalign in system/bin and also i add dark zipalign in system/etc/initd
2/ i add the new launcher from miui 2.3.7 rom
3/ i add the beat audio improvements...
may be you can take your own version of onyx and try to replace that but one by one to see where is the main problem for you...i did delete also some lang pico...but nothing more.......
think the add of sony bravia engine is not necessay as we have lcd screen...
did you try beats audio http://www.mediafire...m2oiy6tkkbqb1np so you can try it apart...
regards...for me this version of onyx is working good...no bootloop hope you will manage to see the good things i've found... :) it is also working with cm7.2 from pier11
one thing...did you replace boot image? the one i upload is set with cpu at 710...so try original boot image in your first post.
may be that is why you had bootloop
