MOST IMPORTANT - READ THIS ENTIRE POST BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS!!! If you have ANY issues, ie. maps not locating, market crashing, etc - RUN FIX PERMISSIONS from tools (this runs the RM version now). This will clear up many issues!! If you are coming from 5.00 - no wipe, just install - if from any other ROM (including Froyo) you can attempt an install with no wipe - but if you have ANY issues that seem to be odd - WIPE! Case in point: If you get stuck on the 'M' - first step is to reboot into recovery, then wipe cache (not just dalvik-cache, but CACHE). SOMETIMES this doesn't even work. A surefire way to ensure it is cleared is to enter these commands via adb shell: umount /cache format CACHE: Then reboot. If it still fails - try a different kernel. If you get random reboots, not to the 'M', but right to the bootanimation - run my task killer - this will clear a few things up and hopefully the problem as well. "Oh, also, my home button doesn't do anything." - TIME TO WIPE! If your market sticks on a download - a reboot should take care of it. bkapps/rstapps - The issue with it looking for the wrong folder has been fixed (only affected coming from Froyo -> GB) Also for rstapps - After restoring, it will now run fix_permissions before the reboot. I am HOPING this will fix some of the FC issues you have experienced after restoring. This will mean that rstapps will take considerably longer though, so be patient (read: go get a coffee or beer!) Longpress on camera makes it buzz many times but still functional ... camcorder will FC if you try to zoom while recording. 1. Pretty much EVERYTHING compiled through ProGuard (shrinker, optimizer, obfuscator, and preverifier) - in addition, everything zipaligned! 2. Almost forgot - working DSP Manager! 3. You can NOW get text messages with pictures! 4. Most bugs from 5.00 fixed (see 5.00 bug list) 5. This uses CM as a base - this means you will see new things that come straight from CM So here I give credit where credit is due. With 5.01, I also include ALL CM Settings. Noteable additions: CyanogenMod Settings now present, right below ChevyNo1Tools Toggles (ie wireless, bluetooth, gps, sound) now present in pulldown - and using CM Settings, configurable now Music controls on lockscreen, in addition to my screen-off controls Rotary Lockscreen Many settings under CM Settings - you might see a few duplicates between those and my Tools Theme Changer/Manager (Androidian/Cyanbread NOT included as they HAVE to sit in /system and short on space) 6. ChevyNo1Tools modification - if you use the 'back' button to exit - it will now completely remove the app from memory, giving you more to play with. If you use the 'Home' button, it will still remain in memory, the default behavior 7. OS has been modified to reduce system logging by 40% - less time logging = more time to perform tasks you ask for! 8. Ability to 'clear' Gtalk issues - under Scripts/Other (requires reboot) 9. New kernels now support compcache (and ability to change settings via new option: Performance Tweaks - no longer using compcache file in /data/chevyno1) 10. Overclock now set via menu options. Also under Performance Tweaks 11. Original Launcher is once again included - I know a few of you have asked for this option. I will say however that it takes considerably more memory to run than ADW - and our D1 is short on that. It does not have to be deleted if you do not use it, meaning it will not take precious resources just sitting there. 12. Updated kernels - less logging, so theoretically should be faster - also slot update to 1.25LV (was misconfigured) 13. Installing this ROM will wipe out the system partitition. 14. Battery % added to non-themed version 15. New task killer - runs at boot, and can be run as a one-off, under Options. This task killer uses a preset list of tasks to kill, those are listed in /data/chevyno1/csm.lst. You can edit this on the phone using your own editor, or pull/push using ADB. At some point I will try to make this with a UI. As delivered, this is the contents: # LOOP DELAY - Try LOOP times, sleep DELAY seconds between loops # So '20 3' means it will be active for 60 seconds - keep this in mind # 20 3 android.process.media com.android.deskclock com.android.email com.android.music com.android.protips com.android.providers.calendar com.android.providers.media com.android.quicksearchbox com.android.voicedialer com.bel.android.dspmanager com.cooliris.media com.cyanogenmod.cmparts com.google.android.apps.maps:FriendService com.google.android.apps.maps:NetworkLocationService com.google.android.partnersetup com.google.android.voicesearch com.google.android.youtube com.koushikdutta.rommanager com.koushikdutta.rommanager.license com.tmobile.thememanager com.vzw.vvm.androidclient net.cactii.flash2 The above settings will actively kill these proceses for 60 seconds after the bootanimation completes. You may want to add/remove apps from this list. For example, notice that RM and CMParts are in the list. If, immediately after bootup, you open RM, you may find it disappear before your eyes, because csm is killing it. You can either remove it from the list, or tweak the LOOP/DELAY parameters to your liking. In addition, you can completely turn it off by typing in 'csm off' in terminal. Other commands available from terminal: csm set 5 5 - This will change LOOP/DELAY to 5/5 csm off - turn it off completely csm on - turns it on and runs it once with no looping or delay csm settings - displays current settings Additionally - if you place a '#' in front of any app in the list, it will be ignored. Also, as far as task killing - part of the Android OS is that if it sees a process die, it will reschedule a startup again of the task. This, as far as task killing, is a PITA. Therefore I have modified the OS to also NOT restart any apps contained in csm.lst. This task killer can have a pretty big impact on how much free memory you have. The lack of available memory has been the major cause of the soft resets (ie. to bootanimation and not the 'M') that you have seen. Also to help in this area - compcache is enabled by default going forward, and the Dalvik VM has been updated as well. You can still change these to suit your needs, but after extensive testing these are the defaults I see that work best. If you run the task killer option from my tools, it will also reset compcache ( a good practice every couple of days in lieu of a reboot). So make good use of this! And the LINKS!!!
