For the short time I've tried this CM9 version, it seems by far the best ROM for ZTE Blade, whereas CM10/10.1 is very slow and this does pretty much everything either way
I've found a few issues that seem to plague this version, like other CM9s:
- GPS in Navigation isn't detected or takes a long time to find the location (haven't got it to do so with Eco CM9, took a long time with CM9 ColdfusionX)
- HW accel in BS Player doesn't work (not sure if a issue with the ROM, works ok on CM7.2.0)
- No video on apps like Twitch TV. Works great on GB based ROMs.
My biggest issue here is really the GPS. Seems strange everyone would report it as working and I keep getting problems with it. Which software do you use for GPS navigation?
Also not sure why this works in 16bit graphics with dethering, as performance seemed good in 32bit. Any basis for this?
If someone can drop some hints in debugging these the GPS and video issues, would be greatly appreciated.
I am not having problems with GPS. I use GPS Status to check GPS satellites, etc., and NDrive for GPS Offline navigation. Everything is working fine, and I get the signal pretty fast.
You should try Eco CM9 to see if GPS problems persist on your phone, maybe something got fixed on the way..
About the video issues, I don't know. I only used Youtube app to test video and it is working fine. I haven't used the other apps you mentioned. As for 16bit, you should really ask Daemond on the CM10 (Continuation) thread, since it was him who did the patches. My understanding of the subject was that 32 bit imply a later conversion to 16 bit because our display's are 16 bit, and so, doing the conversion in the first place (for 16bit to 32bit) was a waste of resources for some cases. But Daemond can explain better that part..
But as final result, I see some improvements in some apps, like for instance, in a sudoku game that I play a lot..
