09/Feb 1.7 - MoDaCo Custom ROM - U8230 Vanilla Style (now with online kitchen)

Download link still doesn't work for me, but I'd realized that I've already downloaded the rom at home, so finally I have it installed. It IS FAST! Much more faster than the stock t-mobile one. There isn't any magenta! Shopsavvy works! 3D games are running!

The only problem I've found is that I have to repair ext2 partition after a reboot (?). I've tried to convert it to ext3 with no luck. Have we got a fix for this?

Thanks! Good to hear that there's already a fix for this. Unfortunately, the download links to romraid aren't working for me, I don't know why. I've downloaded the source from github, will try to compile it at home on my linux box.

Try to right-click, "Save target as..."

LOL! I thought you are joking but tried and it really works! ;) After couldn't download using three different browsers, plus wget! Finally I've tried what you had suggested and simply downloaded the file. Chrome still gives me a download.htm which contains data from the modaco main site, then firefox downloaded it. Ahh. Can somebody explain this? ;)

Anyway, I've got it, so thanks!

If I've already installed the previous version of this ROM, and then installed your test kernel from yesterday is there any advantage to installing this one?

Changelog

1.1

Added MoDaCo Custom Kernel 1.1 with automatic compcache

Can you confirm this has ext3 support, and can use a swap partition?

I ask because the root message says:

Includes version 1.1 of MoDaCo Custom Kernel, which adds automatic compcache, swap support, EXT3/4 support and much more!

- Fixed build.prop so you can correctly download protected apps

- Rooted with 'adb remount' permission and superuser APK

- A2SD included (fully automatic - thanks cyanogen!) - create a EXT2 partition as your second partition to use. dalvik-cache remains on device. EXT3 and EXT4 are NOT supported. You must NOT have a swap partition on your SD, or it will refuse to mount.

Which is self-contradictory!

Can you confirm whether or not a wipe is required when installing this over the previous version?

Can you confirm the statement "dalvik-cache remains on device", because mount on my Pulse says:

/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 on /system/sd type ext3 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,errors=continue,data=ordered)

/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 on /data/dalvik-cache type ext3 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,errors=continue,data=ordered)

P.S. Thanks for all the effort you put into this, Paul. Small token of appreciation sent via PayPal.

if you look up in the test kernel tread you will find swap still isnt working properly.

in my case a wipe was not needed(i allready did a wipe before installing the ext3/4 supporting kernel from martinbrook but not after) but as always with testing and messing around:

Past Performance is No Guarantee of future results Results

as for the dalvik cache i dont know ;)

i have like 90 mb free space

How much free memory do people have on their phone after installing this ROM?

I have 75 MB - is this normal, or a bit low?

I have 82mb with the mcr 1.1 and the mck 1.1 kernel

did you say you have a swap partition? maybe apps are being installed to phone memory cos of it.

tmpfs 47.9M 0 47.9M 0% /dev
tmpfs 4.0M 0 4.0M 0% /sqlite_stmt_journals
/dev/block/mtdblock1 85.0M 82.8M 2.2M 97% /system
/dev/block/mtdblock2 105.3M 5.2M 100.0M 5% /data

/dev/block//vold/179:1

Ext3 used, kernel version displayed, able to install applications, it's fast and shiny! ;) Thanks Paul!

Hi,

I just installed the custom U8230 ROM V1.1 on my pulse, but I'm having trouble installing apps on the ext3 partition.

I did a wipe before installing the ROM, but when I try to install an app it fails.

The only way to install apps is to go in to recovery and select repair ext filesystem, but after a reboot it stops working again.

Hope you van help me with this problem,

Remon

How did you create the ext3 partition? The recovery image option creates an ext2 partition, not ext3 (and ext2 is known to do this).

If that is correct, what does

- Includes version 1.1 of MoDaCo Custom Kernel, which adds automatic compcache, swap support, EXT3/4 support and much more!

"swap support" mean in the above?

Thanks for that. I have just done a du on /data, and it looks as copilot is taking 7.3MB, the browser 6.2MB, and K9 mail 2.5MB.

But if it is all dribs and drabs like that, I'm not worried - 75MB is plenty.

Any idea what "tombstones" is for?

Oops, will fix the description, EXT3/4 are supported!

Sorry to nag, but:

Message 1 says it includes "swap support", but later says "You must NOT have a swap partition" - confusing.

Message 1 says "dalvik-cache remains on device", but mount says /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 on /data/dalvik-cache (which implies it is on the sdcard).

I used the convert ext2 to ext 3 option from the recovery image

Perhaps you have the same problem I did. I ran repair ext filesystem and fix package uid mismatches and rebooted - problem still there. I did it again, problem went away. Go figure!

Swap is supported. You will just have to use a swap FILE instead of a swap PARTITION. And if you're using swap, you're best using it as backing swap for compcache.
