I am going to flash the Rom today but before that i have 2 questions:
What partition do we need - 150MB or bigger?
And are you going to include PIE as a Addon or not? :)

150MB will do.

@ xander21

A full formats needed as it's much different to H3 Blues.

 

 

@ nimic

The default launcher settings within the apk aren't great, but the ROM applies some that I've come up with that fix that. Resetting the launcher will lose these settings and it'll seem slower again. There's no way around that, because if I edit the APK then it can't receive updates from the Play Store.

 

This is built off of Gingerbread so there is no project butter. With that in mind the ROM has been optimized for speed over smoothness. Like I said in my other thread, just download terminal emulator and run these 2 commands:

time head -c 10m /dev/random > /dev/null
time head -c 10m /dev/urandom > /dev/null

Then try running the same 2 commands on any other ROM. You'll find that this ROM blows them out of the water.

 

Also keep in mind that if the media scanner is running (its worse if you've got lots on your SD card) then things will lag a bit until it's complete.

 

Gallery ICS was something I was going to install at one point, but I didn't because it's got adverts for other apps within it, it's requesting way too many permissions, it's editor isn't that great and it hasn't got many options. QuickPic is fast and it has a great editor with plenty of settings and no adverts for other apps. That's why I had to include it.

 

Heres a ROW description:

 

 

ROW stands for "READ Over WRITE" which is the main requests dispatch policy of this algorithm. The ROW IO scheduler was developed with the mobile devices needs in mind. In mobile devices we favor user experience upon everything else, thus we want to give READ IO requests as much priority as possible. In mobile devices we won't have as much parallel threads as on desktops. Usually it's a single thread or at most 2 simultaneous working threads for read & write. Favoring READ requests over WRITEs decreases the READ latency greatly.

 

So as mobile devices need to read more than they write we favour the read requests. That can mean that apps launch faster, games are smoother and good stuff like that.

 

 

@ honigfisch

I could of sworn that German was included. You'd just hold down the language key and it'll pop up with a list. If you don't see it then of course I'll try to add it. I had to hack in the other languages too, so I know what I'm doing there :)

Thx for reply H3ROS but there isnt any option to choose german language for keyboard

The problem is : the key z and y are switched at the german keyboard which makes it hard to write with english keyboard if you are not used to it :)

Hope you can include it with a Addon if possible

 

best regards

 

by the way: the Rom is fantastic :D

 

EDIT:

 

@Ridik_nav

 

I think the Skate can not send files via bluetooth except videos and music

@ Ridik_nav

Bluetooths the same as stock, not modified at all. I can pair it with my TomTom and that works, and I can send files from the Skate to my PC.

 

@ honigfisch

The icon is the third on the bottom left. I've confirmed that German is missing though, so I'm currently working on adding that in.

H3 Blues has more bugs and less performance. This is near flawless. In fact the only thing you say you have a problem with is bluetooth, yet that's working fine here. I will of course double check everything, but how does that make it "bad" when it's just 1 thing and this is the very first public release?

 

I think what people need to realise is that if you like speed then you'll like the ROM, but if you like smooth transitions then they're not really there because it's Gingerbread. And that's not to say that there won't be any smoothness to it, but that Jelly Bean will of course be smoother due to project butter. So if you're coming from a 4.x ROM then you'd lose the smoothness and that gets replaced with speed (things loading instantly) and stability as everything will work.

Okay, so my laptop works with bluetooth but my PC is having problems. I think I can see the problem so I'll get that fixed and push an OTA update when it's ready.

 

EDIT: It's as I thought. It's looking for code from the old music apk, so I'll try to patch that. For the time being the solution is simple though. Don't use bluetooth.

 

The issue has occured because the change to Shuttle was very recent. In fact I'd only applied it 10 minutes before handing out the very first version to testers.

The regular version is for the ZTE Skate, OMC and similar devices. The SFR version has a different kernel and hardware key layout.

 

I've just confirmed that the bluetooth issue is caused by the music app being replaced. I don't really want to add that back, so I'm currently trying to find a way to work around the issue. I'm surprised none of the testers mentioned it before I released the ROM.

I fact, I mentioned you I couldn't pair my N4 (stock rom)… and because it's my only Bluetooth-working device, I couldn't assure you it wasn't the hardware of my Skate.

I have installed the rom. No problem about this.

 

I wanted to format my SD partition from parameters and it formatted it to "RAW" but this is unreadable on computer.
I formatted partition on computer using FAT32 but now phone said it's not formatted.
I think I have forget something, what the type of the partition I must have ? FAT16 ?

Mines FAT32. It sounds like CWM might of corrupted your SD card unless it can partition itself correctly?

I use an older version, so maybe that's why.

 

 

@ ousZTE

I'm working on a fix as we speak. So far it's coming along fine :)

That'd be a Shuttle bug. If you could logcat it then the dev might fix it.

 

To select an MP3 of a ringtone open Shuttle and then on the playlist hold your finger down on the song name. You should see the option there :)

I think it's inside these logs.
