    Fission addons - anyone interested?

    I've been using the Fission ROM for my Droid 2 Global ever since it was released - it has always felt like the cleanest, most stable ROM...not to mention it was the only available one for a long time. Luckily, people are working on new ones so we'll hopefully see things pick up here in the D2G community soon.

    Until then, I've been poking around and tweaking things in my copy of Fission. A few of the preinstalled apps in the stock ROM were useful to me, like Windows Media Sync mode, so I added them back. The crackling and popping while playing music was driving me crazy, so I enabled StageFright and fixed the missing libraries so YouTube and camcorder playback still work too. I have also managed to activate 720p video recording. The camera on the D2G seems to be the same one as in the Milestone 2, which supports 720p recording, so I stole some files from that and got it working after a night of tinkering. It's silky smooth at 29fps and produces fairly massive video files with a 10mbit bitrate.

    So I've been thinking, maybe I should figure out how to package up each of these tweaks as update.zip files and release them. I don't really have time to make a whole ROM nor do I want to force my preferences on people by doing that (I like my Dialer buttons to be hot pink with flaming skulls on the sides, so you must too!). I'm just wondering if any of you are still running Fission and whether there'd be any demand for stuff like this. I just blew an entire day and sleepless night rebooting my phone about 80 times while working on this stuff, so I just want to make sure it's not wasted time if I figure out how to release these tweaks in a way that doesn't set anyone's phone on fire.

    If it did not set your phone of fire, chances are that it will not do it to mine either... Seems you have worked hard for your stuff so may be you should share... I am ready to be the scapegoat, guinea pig, laboratory mouse whatever you want to call me... I have used Fission in past and kind of liked it to some extent but then I wanted to try Liberty which I am carrying right now... Send me the files and I will go back to Fission for a while... I have to go back to fission anyhow due to a killing theme one of my friend is cooking these days!!!

    Turns out 720p recording is even simpler than I thought. Assuming you're using Motorola's camera app and not the stock one, all you have to do is open /system/build.prop and find this line near the bottom:
    Code:
    ro.media.capture.maxres=5m
    Change it to
    Code:
    ro.media.capture.maxres=8m
    Then reboot your phone. After that, go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications, find the Camera app in the All tab, force stop it if it's running and Clear Data.

    After that, 720p should show up as the default recording quality for videos in the Camera/Camcorder app.


    If it did not set your phone of fire, chances are that it will not do it to mine either... Seems you have worked hard for your stuff so may be you should share... I am ready to be the scapegoat, guinea pig, laboratory mouse whatever you want to call me...

    Is Liberty stable on the D2G now? Last I heard there were still some sensor issues, have those been resolved?

    Yes, It has been fairly stable for me for the last three weeks I have been using it... some issues here and there which i think not major... sensors seem to be working fairly well...No problems so far other than some random reboots when i changed to a theme that went away when i went to a different one.... When can i expect to hear from you about getting your tweek of Fission??? Waitin for it!!!!!!!!
