I tried installing using clockworkmod. I copied the .img files to the clockworkmod backup folder :)

But the boot.img flashing fails. Tried with another boot.img and then just the other .img files from alexchester.

Infinite bootloop.

I still have hope tho :)

twork is prolly boiling and frying up something in the way of a .zip file :)

Why you can't install it via ADB?

1.Do wipes

2.Go in fastboot, red button+volume down+turn on button

3. Connect cable

4. Start Install file in your oc

5. Wait

6. After installing reinsert battery

It's work, i checked it.

Maybe...... ;)

No, you can't use Recovery to install anything from this rom as it is now. So what means is that you will need to use adb as alexchester stated in his installation instructions. And yes, I think "oc" refers to your computer. You use adb from your computer.

I have just unpacked the boot.img and system.img and started to look at the rom. It looks to me like it is going to need a large /system partition. (For example, there are 13mb of ringtones alone, not to mention other media files and extra apps.) I'm afraid I don't have enough time today to really get into this. Maybe later?

Thanks alexchester for uploading this rom. I have a couple of question if I may. You mention good battery life. Can you tell me what you did to make improvement in battery life? I still can not seem to do anything to improve battery life in the CM6 rom mod I've been working on. Did you start with Tom G's mod, or did you work directly with CM6 from source?

Hmm, no launcher in /system? That makes it hard to get things working after a factory reset. ;)

It was far too big to fit in my U8220 partitions, so I rebuilt it with rom kitchen. However, I did not do anything with /data, and I'm guessing there was a number of important apps there.

But this really does have a very nice unique look! All the visual modifications are quite beautiful.

Unfortunately, I'm getting a lot of fc's, but I can't blame the original modder, when I messed with things myself. Unfortunately it consistently fc's when I click on CM Settings, so I can't get to some of the important things.

Has anyone gotten this to install via ADB?

I compare with original rom, and smaller loading on the processor and storage as a result of removal of unnecessary things. + not overdrive kernel as standard used.

oc means Operation System.. If you user of Windows you must run Install in Windows, if Linux user- Instal in Linux. It's simlply:)

twrock, We can unite and work together. Do you have icq number?

If you want to install firmware with 710 mhz oc, you must rename boot(710) to boot. And you must start bat file. IF you windows user-Install in windows. IF linux-Install in linux. IF mac os user Install in mac. If system wants drivers, you must install it. Drivers

It's strange, i set English(USA) and rom works fine. Do you do wipe before installing rom?

You can install apk from market or from your sd card.

ARGH

tried the fastboot method just now.

boot.img flash fails

and data and system.img are too large :) I have the smaller rom u8230. Tough luck for me. Maybe this rom can be reduced in size like pepe did for latest rbm2 rom.

Why you can't install it via ADB?

because it's not true way. install firmware via recovery don't need BB, more simle and beauty.

Earlier I wrote, "Unfortunately it consistently fc's when I click on CM Settings, so I can't get to some of the important things."

This is what I did:

  • I used the dsixda rom kitchen to unpack your boot.img and system.img
  • Then I removed enough files out of /system to create a smaller /system so I could install it on my U8220. (I believe your U8230 has a larger /system partition.)
  • I used Recovery to flash the new installable zip onto my phone. It booted fine, but had a few fc's during the first setup (forced closes).
  • But then when I opened Settings and tapped on "CyanogenMod Settings", it just fc's every time.
  • So I played around with it for just a little time to see the beauty of it (very nice!), but I then returned to working on another rom I have been trying to modify. So I didn't use it after that.

But I can not say that the problems I had with your rom were anything you can fix. I modified your rom so I could install it, and my modifications were probably the cause of the problems.

Unfortunately I don't have an icq number. (I'm embarrassed to say that I don't really even know what that is.)

And as I have said many times before, I really only know how to take the amazing work other people do and put it into some form that can be used by a lot of other people. I really don't know as much as people think I do. ;)

I think with the knowledge you already have, it will be easy for you to learn how to make an rom that can be installed by Recovery. The dsixda rom kitchen is very easy to use. It does much of the work for you.

I would still like to be able to try this rom, but the size of /system files makes it impossible for me unless I modify it myself. But if I modify it, I create other problems that I don't know how to fix. So I'm not sure how I can be of help. :(

and it will be nice if someone could make a flashable zip that can be instaled tru recovery also if it is needed to create a smaller system image and then make a flashable zip by recovery fully compatible with Huawei U8220

Thanks in advance

Sorry for bad english
