Installation

Use Clockwork Recovery 2.5.0.9 or 2.5.1.3 to install the ROM and addons. Remember to Wipe data/cache when installing the ROM. No wipe, no whine...

LCD and/or Apps2SD user may want to try this Clockwork version where I replaced the kernel with my custom kernel so it supports EXT3 and the new displays: http://android.modaco.com/index.php?s=&amp...t&p=1501261

RLS5

  • Hardware UI accelleration is now the default, use addon to turn off.
  • Updated lots of apps.
  • Made lite version small enough to fit into a 128Mb system partition.
    • No AHB bus overclocking in the default kernel, use addon for AHB overclocking.
    • Replaced Wifi driver and firmware with the Hungarian version as it has been reported to work a bit better with the Wifi fix.
    • Updated Titanium Backup
    • Added Gingerbread keyboard and made it the default IME
    • Replaced Bluetooth File Transfer with the bluetooth addon for Astro File Manasger
    • Added Blade Wifi Fix app again.
    • Fixed Google Goggles
      • New overclocking code, no more overclocking addons. Boots at 600MHz but can be overclocked with SetCPU. Be careful with the "Set on Boot" checkbox until you know a speed is stable. The new code does not degrade 3D performance. It also overclocks the memory bus even at stock speed so please report any strangeness at stock speed (that goes away if you flash the "original_kernel" addon). Expect Qudrant scores above 500 even at moderate overclocking.
      • Removed Blade Wifi Fix. Not that the wifi problems are fixed, but it's in the market and sometimes the fix can be more annoying that having to reconnect manually.
      • Updated Maps, Market, Facebookt, Titanium Backup, Quadrant, Taskiller and APNDroid.
      • Replaced Filer with Astro File Manager
      • Replaced Stopwatch with Stopwatch & Timer
      • Replaced Notepad with ColorNote.
      • Added Bluetooth File Transfer
      • Added Flashlight
      • Added Linpack
      • Added Neocore
      • Replaced sensor lib with hungarian version (should fix compass issues and proximity sensor problems)
      • Changed the default compcache size from 64Mb to 32Mb as the only ones you should benefit from enabling compcache are the ones with 256Mb blades and with 256Mb RAM, 32Mb compcache should be a more realistic value to use.
      • Note that none of the suggested changes to get the wifi working better, like changing kernel settings, copying drivers/firmware from other ROMs etc has been applied to RLS3 as none of the changes has proven to be 100% effective (at least not on my phone). When we find a 100% fix I will of course add it.

        RLS2
        • Toucscreen driver in custom kernel now reports pressure (original kernel always reports maximum pressure regardless of the real pressure)
        • Circle battery indicator is now default
        • Re-added TouchPal and XT9 IME methods, HTC_IME is still the default.
        • Upgraded Launcher Pro
        • Upgraded Google Voice
        • Added APN Droid
        • Added Blade Wifi Fix
        • Added Compass
        • Added Flash Notify (flashes screen when you missed a call, sms etc...)
        • Added Global Time from the swedish Blade ROM
        • Added GPS Status
        • Added Multitouch Visualizer 2 (To see the effects of the changes in the touchscreen driver)
        • Replaced akmd2 (compass service) with the one from the Hungarian ROM. (will make an addon with the finnish akmd2 if this turns out to break compability with their blades)
        • Made a "lite" version with pretty much all the bells'n'whistles removed.

          • Swap support enabled
          • Swap notify support added (improves compcache)
          • Added support for EXT3 (for better/safer Apps2SD)
          • Support for overclocking (available as addons)
          • Some PPP options someone asked for that is used by VPN.
          • Does not support 5MP camera. Use the original_kernel addon if you have one of those phones.
          • Android

Addons to Finnish Fillyjonk RLS5

Here's a bunch of addons that can be used to change the behaviour of the ROM

  • ahb_overclocking - A kernel that overclocks the AHB bus for extra performance.
  • brut_maps - Replaces Google Maps with Brut Google Maps 4.6.0.4686-brut17
  • original_battery - Replaces battery icon with a original battery icon.
  • original_kernel - Replaces kernel with the kernel shipped with the Finnish ROM. Use this if you have trouble with the custom kernel. Required for 5Mpixel camera.
  • no_hw_ui - Disables hardware accelleration for the GUI.

    Finnish_Fillyjonk_RLS5_addons.rar MD5: D9457F27C9F1F6550110A8EA3BED0A51

    Changing system partition size to 128Mb and data to 286Mb(FOR ADVANCED USERS ONLY ON THEIR OWN RISK!)

    • Download and extract this "image" folder to the the SD-card: http://www.mediafire.com/?a0vaj9j6ca5ci3o MD5: F2354E43A7F4935BDB407D3994D67DA4
    • Download the lite version of Finnish Fillyjonk RLS5 and put it on the SD-card.
    • Power off the phone and when powering on hold Menu and Volume-up
    • When some green text shows up saying it's installing a bunch of .mbn and .img files you may release the buttons and wait for it to reboot.
    • It will now reboot into Clockwork recovery (Sebs version with EXT3 support) so now it's time to install the lite version.
    • Reboot when it has finished installing, no need to wipe.
    • NOTE! This also installs a bunch of firmware files from the Hungarian 256->512Mb update. It works fine on my OSF but do NOT blame me if it bricks your phone. You do not NEED to change partition sizes to use the "lite" version. It's just for advanced users who want to get more space for apps in /data. If this sounds confusing, then it's not for you.

      Go back to standard partition sizes

      Repeat the above but with this "image" folder: http://www.mediafire.com/?xtckadj09b7sxt2 MD5: C8010D841AF463F3CB1FDEDFFAFA3B1E

Does the custom kernel work correctly on the Finnish blade? I'm not sure if my custom kernel have been tested with a 5MP camera before.

Try flashing the original_kernel addon. There may be hardware differences that isn't covered by the kernel source code that ZTE has released to us.

Got it working. I restored my backup and then flashed the firmware without the data/cache wipe and that did work. Didnt use original kernel.

Wifi is more stable, syncing data is also on by default. I've also updated some of the included apps. It's also more bloated but that depending on who you ask that may not equal "better" but you can easily delete the apps in the zip file that you do not want.

Also the framework-res.apk in this build survived going through the battery circle generating webpage, the Hungarian didn't...

Thanks, that helps. I may give it a shot, too many ROMs to try, so little time ;)

Thanks for all the hard work!

Great ROM..how would I revert to stock 600MHz if I'd already flashed an overclock zip, please?

Any ideas about killing the blip/beep sound on boot, also when usb connects to PC?

Thanks in anticipation.. ;)

I just checked that, and the camera did not show any picture when started with the custom kernel (no error message).

When I flashed in the original kernel, the camera worked fine.

Just flash the original archive without wiping data.

You only get a boot sound when booting with USB connected, right? I belive you are referring to the same sound.

Turn off "USB debugging" in Settings->Applications. That should turn it off.

Yes it is, but if you need EXT3 or anything else in the custom kernel then flashing the original archive(no wipe) is the way to go.

No boot sound is same sound as when connecting usb to PC but occurs without cable connected!

Turned off debugging..noise still there..do you not get it yourself? Related to mounting sd card..

Try turning off the "SD card notification" sound in Sound & Display settings.
