[ICS] [CM9] [4.0.4] CyanogenMod 9 for the ZTE Crescent [ROM] [Last updated: 13/07]

Downloaded and installed out of curiosity. ICS is rather beautiful isn't it? Buttery smooth also. I'll be going back to FnC for now though.

If I wanted to get rid of some apps before installing, how would I go about that? Could I just unzip the update package, delete some apks then repackage everything, and bob's your uncle? Or is there more to it than that? I'm wondering if some snipping here and there could make this ROM a bit smaller...

*edit*

Yeah, doesn't look like that would save much space actually. But... could I drop an apk of my own in there? I'm wondering because the ROM, as far as I can tell, has no file explorer. Combined with the lack of connectivity, I can't really install anything unless I use data.

Oh, and I hereby request that this thread be pinned.

No file explorer until and if one gets put in CM9, but yeah you can easily cut the ROM up like that and shove things in. I tend to uninstall a lot of the included apps straight after installing myself - but I'm serving this as close to CM9 as possible.

Congratulations man. Really cool to see your effort finally paying off. I'll have a look at the WiFi issue.

Hey Daz, when you're not busy, can you tech us how to do this? Or release a build of this? It's so awesome I really wanna know how to do it :P How do you figure things like this out anyways? xD Pur

Me not, maybe someone else, because libstagefright on jellybean is very different EDIT: Here's the SF 2 version http://www.mediafire...-p736vHQFIX.zip Here's the TMV version http://www.mediafire

AOKP. Not tested Wi-Fi yet but as it's running on the same kernel as CM9 it's probably a no.

Edit: Next build of CM9 will also have the CM9 boot screen. I'll keep a flashable version of the ICS one that should be compatible with both ROMs.

Edit 2: Fixed RIL. Packaging zip again.

Edit 3: Crap. Going to apply the dithering fix to AOKP, forgot that. :lol:

Edit 4: Quite handy that they can run the same kernel, though.

How's it coming along dude? Not pressuring btw, just curious and keen to test!

You're waiting on a weedy dual-core machine to compile it I'm afraid!

Actually... it's quite close to finishing.

If you want a beast to compile for you, I've got 8 cores at 3.6GHz (overclocked with watercooling :) ) and 16GB of memory, I can do a build for you if you want...as long as you give me instructions or you could even just remote it.

I could use my PC but I'm using it, so I'm using a weedy Acer Aspire 7735Z for compiling. The problem with you doing the builds is it would involve having monolithic amounts of source code downloaded!

been watching this forum for quite some time,hiding in the shadows,testing each released build... you guys are doing some fantastic work,i have a question... what hardware and software would i need to compile roms? i have a keen heart and quick learning brain ;-)

Next on the agenda is Wi-Fi. This should be a on-size-fits-all fix for both ROMs.

Hardware: Anything, but if it's not decent you're going to have a hard time.

Software: Linux or you're going to have a hard time. I'm using Debian right now.

If anyone else is struggling with the lack of wifi and the lack of a file explorer included in the rom, I just installed titaniumbackup using 'adb install <path>.apk', and then I just restored everything I'd been previously using with the FnC rom. Now to work out how to restore my google contacts...

How is the GPS for you guys? I have OSFII, GPS doesn't seem to be able to get a fix at all. On FnC, lock was pretty much instant.

In more positive news, mp3s play just fine for me.

Not tried the KANG version yet but tried this one again after 2 previous tryouts. It just gets better each time. Found it silky smooth and very responsive. Once the Wifi, Camera etc are working we`re going to have two maybe 3 excellent ROMS if the Kang one is as good. I knew I was wiping the phone to put FnC r6 on but actually found myself pausing to look around some more. Something I didn`t do the last couple of times. Its a WIP and its looking really really tempting....... Thanks for all the effort guys.

I'll investigate it. I actually think I completely forgot about GPS. :blink:

Woohoo, We got a build environment up (Eventually...Sun Java is a P.O.S. on Ubuntu...who knew!? :) ). From a 3 hour build down to 45 minutes, just a test build though to test the speed and environment with some stuff missing, I'll be happy with about an hour.
