Is anybody else running cm9 on the 109808 baseband and having any problems with auto brightness?

On mine it seems it will dim the display OK when I come in from outside but refuses to brighten again until I do it manually.

Hey, quick question: Does it really matter what CWM version I use to flash this ROM? Can I just use 4.0.1.5 or should I use a newer version like 5 or 6?

Something exciting (maybe) to share!

Since we're basically getting nowhere with an official bootloader unlock from Huawei, I've spent most of today reintroducing support for the 109808 baseband for CM. We obviously had this before, but the difference this time is the 3.0.8 kernel is running on that baseband, meaning we don't have a dodgy 2.6 kernel powering it, and everything is working as you would expect in CM9 R9.

The only differences behind the scenes are a minor kernel hack to provide us with enough framebuffer memory - the bootloader passes the start point and the size of the memory region to be used as framebuffer space, and as Gingerbread required less, the Gingerbread bootloader also provides less to the kernel, too little in fact. Additional changes are more obvious - bypassing a line in the RIL Java class, and replacing all the blobs related to the RIL with their equivalents from 109808.

Right now, this stuff is set up so it can be toggled when building CM9. I've got a test build available here: http://g300.thebrona...5-109808-A1.zip

Now, why would you use this? Well, it bypasses the problem plaguing custom ICS ROMs, the random 3G reboots, since a bootloader "unlock" is necessary to install them. Of course, if you don't have the reboots, then you have no reason to use it at all.

Maybe it's obvious but just in case: you need to be on the 109808 baseband to use the mobile network on it. For the vast majority of people, this probably means you need to downgrade to Gingerbread in order to use it.

...and one final point - don't install any recovery that uses a 3.0.8 kernel (yet) if you are downgrading, as it won't have the framebuffer hack in place that is necessary to bring the display up, so you'll be staring at the Huawei splash screen for quite some time.

i have installed the official update today for ics b952,rooted the phone and changed couple of lines in the prop build settings ro.max.fling_velocity 12000 and min 8000 which seemingly has the scrolling improved slightly on the browsers.Had some teething problems in getting 3g to work but resolved it by deleting the apn completely and typing in from scratch again.The phone seems to be alot more responsive than gb ,scrolling is still abit of an issue but in firefox is perfect,but on some apps it still sticks abit.

Can anyone tell me if its worth going ahead installing a custom rom or is b952 a decent build,as far as im concerned the phone is perfect apart from the scrolling issues.
Does jb custom roms offer any improvement or are they still in the experimental stages.

Comments much appreciated.

apologies if this has been answered but is there any hope the ultra annoying 'caller ID lag' will be fixed in this (or any other) ROM, please?

Someone just posted a fix to the infusion thread. Modify contacts.jar so that contacts stay in memory.

It would probably fix my SMS compose problem where the recipient enters backwards because the caret keeps moving to the front until the contacts are all loaded

So guys are there any new problems with CM9 on 109808 baseband, or is it basically the same as on new baseband?

Running great here. The only issue I have is the light sensor isn't working so automatic display brightness doesn't work.

May be just my phone though as nobody else has reported the problem.

You might find an app that allows you to test your light sensor and other hardware if that's of any use. For example:

https://play.google....diagnostictools

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link, I tried the test on the light sensor and it isn't responding. It seems to be stuck reading 10 lx.

Ben.

Actually come to think of it I seem to recall that diagnostic application reporting mine to be stuck at 10 even though it does work so maybe that test is not reliable? Sorry... Maybe there's another hardware/light sensor test app out there?

I got the same problem with auto-brightness since updating to R9.
