Hmm, that's weird, there's definitely not two Friendstream installers. Investigating!

P


Paul,

While I was faffing with my phone at work yesterday (and mostly because I had my nandroid backup of the 'stock O2' software on my PC at home!), I figured I'd give ARHD from XDA-Developers a try, as it's based on the same source as the MCR so i wondered if it suffered from the same problems. This ROM doesn't have the FB/Friendstream issue, and worked straight away. This has the latest version of FB installed (1.9.3 I believe?), and isn't causing any problems.

Checking the app list, that ROM too has the same 2 Friendstream apps listed, but also has 'Facebook for HTC Sense' listed as an app. This wasn't showing on the MCR. It is listed as version 4.0.2215172619.345324.334711. Not presuming to teach you to suck eggs or anything, but could it be a simple kitchen issue? The 'Facebook for Friendstream' option was definitely ticked when I baked the ROMs, so could it be that whatever code it is you've written to run the kitchen has just had a flag for these installed items pointing the wrong way? (ie. "if ticked then do not install" instead of "install if ticked"?)

Of course, it might not be that. As ARHD isn't based strictly on stock the way MCR is, you have to do a full wipe and format of 'system' prior to install. I confess I haven't tried doing a full wipe and installing MCR again.

(For reference for others - ARH is pretty decent as a ROM if you like things to look and feel pretty stock, much like the MCRs. The RAM optimisations seem to have worked, as in general use I struggle to have less than about 350Mb of free RAM, as opposed to about 270Mb on stock.

That said, it still doesn't seem as smooth and fluid as MCR did for the brief period I was using it. Don't know which kernel Paul is using for MCR, but ARHD is based on 2.6.39.4.

Once Paul works out what the issue with Friendstream et all is, I will be moving back to MCR - I used one for just under 2 years on my Desire, and it never skipped a beat, hence I trust it. ARHD I'm happy to try, but I don't trust it anywhere near as much just yet.)

Actually the kitchen does not do what it says it will do. Items that are not checked are added anyway. I do not see the point in using the kitchen if it is going to add items that are not checked. Might as well use the already prepared version. Quicker and simpler.

Or, be more specific so I can fix...?

carthesis, can you check you have Facebook_Client.apk and FacebookEngine.apk in /system/app in your bake zip? These are the Friendstream files.

Paul,

Yeah, got both of those in there.

This is from an MCR build that I rebaked on the 28th. I am SURE that I had the options ticked in the kitchen, because I was going through an experimental phase with the ROMs, so I tried both MCR and DUO both with and without including the actual FB app to find out if the updated app was causing Friendstream some issues.

I've included a screeny showing everything that's in /system/app.

If you want me to drop a copy of the various ROMs I baked up on a filehosting site so you can have a prod at the actual ones that definitely don't work, let me know.

clicking the thumbnail to go to gallery does nothing


Yeah the camera app is HTC (to take advantage of the One X camera processor), but the gallery app is stock Android. So in the camera app, clicking the thumbnail will want to launch the HTC gallery app which doesn't exist.

I have the same minor issue with my kitchen rom.

Could you post the 'options.txt'? That would let me check which options you selected.

Yeah the camera app is HTC (to take advantage of the One X camera processor), but the gallery app is stock Android. So in the camera app, clicking the thumbnail will want to launch the HTC gallery app which doesn't exist.

I've patched this and i'll upload a version where the gallery click works as intended with the stock gallery today. :)

I have problems maintaining wifi connection. Randomly disconnects but the wifi icon still says that it has signal.
Looking through the xda forums it's a common problem

I've had the issue on all roms i've tried - stock, leedroid and MCR - many people believe its wireless N, change to G and people report stable connections (not tried it personally yet, just turn wifi on and off again).

Paul,

Can't post the options.txt from the same ROM, as that's on my machine at work and I'm off until after the Jubilee now. Got the options.txt from the very first ROM I tried when this problem became apparent though, so I'll stick that one up.

I got two phones, two browsers, two calendars, two contacts, live wallpapers I didn't check as well as other features I did not check such as multiple languages.

Two phones - this is due to selecting both Vanilla and HTC Contacts.
Two calendars - this is due to select both Vanilla and HTC Calendar.
Two contacts - see above.
Live wallpapers - which, I can then add them to the options.
Multiple languages - the languages are in the core and not kitchen options.
