  1. I use Handbrake. Select the Ipod legacy profile, change the resolution (800 width/480 height maintain AR), up the bitrate to 1500kbit, change the audio to 160 kbit. My 720p converted content looks absolutely brilliant on the AMOLED display. You might want to save your new profile for future easier conversions.
  2. Don't have the problem on my N1, but I've seen other people reporting it.
  3. It just wipes your settings, ROM is still there.
  4. Native FLAC support needs to be compiled into Opencore library. Once the source drops Cyanogen will include it since he has it in his builds now. There are some standalone FLAC players though you can use in the meantime. Check out this link. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=575923
  5. Strange. There really shouldn't be any opportunity to get a corrupted fs except for getting incomplete writes, which should be quite hard if the only stuff you have on it is /data/app, since it's only written on app install. I've run ext2 on my hero for months without any issues whatsoever. Maybe it's Pulse specific.
  6. You're correct, the kernel in the recovery is the stock hero kernel with the stock ext4 options enabled, and a small patch to msm-nand driver to allow future backups of splash images if needed. However, I urge you guys to stick to ext2 (or yaffs2) as filesystem for your extra partition. The new features of ext3/ext4 brings you no real benefits on such a small partition with very limited directory structure, while it degrades the lifetime of your cards due to the excess journal writes.
  7. Nope. Nope. However, if you used the cable to remove CID lock, you should probably also be in Security OFF mode (S-OFF). If that is the case the engineering SPL won't bring you much more functionality since you can already flash unsigned stuff.
  8. Partial Wake is when the phone is running CPU with the screen off. Like background updates and such.
  9. The reason for the "loss" of the 30 Mb people are reporting are due to this version not using .odex files. .odex files are compiled versions of the java bytecode of the normal .apks that usually are stored on the system partition with the system apk. When the .odex are not there Dalvik (the java virtual machine for Android) creates the equvialent files in /data/dalvik-cache resulting in taking up space on the data partition instead of system.
  10. Getting Droidwall up and running is a piece of cake, just enable the owner match support for iptables. I got it running on my Hero at the moment working fine.
  11. Quick update for all you people considering updating. Stay away from the RUU installer for now! (thats the HTC Generic 2.73.405.5 Windows RUU) It will install a new HBOOT (SPL) version that do not allow you to boot or flash the custom made recovery image later on. And since it also installs a new recovery image your are stuck on it. There is a way out of it and going back (I spent several hours figuring this out tonight), but it's quite complicated and involves flashing the HBOOT back (which can be dangerous and could potentially brick your phone if done wrong). If anyone is stuck in a nonrooted ROM state due to using the RUU, with the new HBOOT drop me a PM and I'll try and help you out. If many people need it I'll do a writeup about it So stick with Paul's update.zips for now. They work very well.
  12. When you have a contact open, press menu -> more -> Save to SIM. There is no way to copy all to SIM that I know of, just one at a time.
  13. Yup, that was it. Shuffled the ext3 to partition 2 and stuff worked like a charm, incl. Swapper. Radio update worked awesome aswell. On another note, thanks alot for all the work you do for the community Paul, it is much appreciated.
