[TESTING] XDAndroid GBX0C 2.3.7 Build

Hey folks,

This is a completely new build, with all the new changes baked in. We wanted to do a semi-official test release to collect bugs and hopefully do a formal official release with everything settled. The main pain point is the CSV files (see pre-install prep).

So a brief overview:
  • New acoustic routing code baked in. Should fix most if not all audio routing problems, and will provide more debugging if stuff does go wrong. Also allows for more granular tweaking, see the CSV files.
  • GPS fixes for GB - GPS not only works in GB now, but it doesn't kill sleep! I was able to use GPS, get a solid lock, and put the device to sleep no problem.
  • BT should work & well with the new acoustic code. Post results.
  • RHOD users now have a choice of kernels. .35+ all have the new acoustic - so .35, .39, 3.0 and 3.1 are all fair game now... This is bundled with .27!!
  • Keep in mind, autobuild .27 kernels will produce no audio in this build... Obviously the bundled kernel will work, and the absolute newest .27 autobuild kernel does work now - Feb.27 2012 or newer.
  • rootfs tweaks - first, it will detect which kernel you're on (.27 or .35+) and automatically apply the correct firmware. Second, is it will always copy/extract the modules... failures there were getting annoying, and this is surefire if brute-force...
  • Few Easter egg apk's...
  • Probably a lot I'm forgetting, this might change

Pre-Install Prep REQUIRED!!!

This step is crucial, and I forgot all about it! You must copy all of the *.CSV file from your WinMo ROM - these are in the \Windows\ directory. There's a very easy way to do this. It involves the Total Commander app for WinMo (Direct Link for the perpetually lazy...) (included in EnergyROM and others probably).

Now you're in Total Commander looking at your \Windows\ directory. Whew... lots of files. Fear not! Hit the "CTRL" button, then the green "Plus" button. This opens the Select/Unselect files dialog. Put in *.csv, press "select" and voila. All CSV files are selected. Now - File -> Copy/Move -> I want you to copy these (should be 10) files to the ROOT of your SD card. No folders!!! This is hardset right now, until we get it all implemented into the build properly. Thanks!

Install

Assuming you've done the pre-install prep; this is installed just like the other XDAndroid builds - grab your startup.txt (don't forget rel_path= if you don't have it at the root of the SD!), ts-calibration and boot!

Re: [TESTING] New Acoustic GB 2.3.7 Build

Caveat List
  • CDMA users might get a crash in phone.apk and no service on boot. If waiting doesn't resolve the issue, then reboot. Should come up fine...
  • BT might still be flaky
  • The CSV files from my RHOD400 are attached for the lazy. I'd like to gather CSV's from each RHOD, I'm curious if any ROM devs have changed them out either... This could get interesting. If you folks don't mind, post up your CSV's, point out differences with mine, etc... We're trying to figure out how to unify these, if possible! Thanks!
Please post back any issues, enjoy!

Re: [TESTING] New Acoustic GB 2.3.7 Build

Just to get people going on some of the newer kernels.

2.6.35 is currently auto-built at:

https://code.google.com/p/zimages/downloads/list

Emwe has been maintaining this tree, and he is most qualified to speak about it, but pretty much everything is functional barring camera.

.39+ kernels are auto-built at:

Htc-Msm-Kernel-Autobuild

Everything should work on these as well except: no proximity for gsm rhods, no 3.5mm. Only 3.0 has BT for now. These three are very similar to each other.

Re: [TESTING] New Acoustic GB 2.3.7 Build

I noticed I had 1 more .csv file than you did... but I also used a patch in WM to make things louder so I'm guessing it's from that

I attached that 1 file just incase you want to look at it

Looks like some carrier-specific one for GSM devices .

GSM phones have a couple extra's I've seen, one for TMO and one for ATT...

Re: [TESTING] New Acoustic GB 2.3.7 Build

but I'm on sprint's tp2 lol...

Anyways reporting that copying frx07.1's data.img over and using it with this one works flawlessly. Audio on phone call works well too. Still not as loud as in WM but a lot louder than on frx07.

I'll stick with this build from now on, so far for the past 10 minutes, haven't found a problem yet. Any news on how GB differs from Froyo? I don't keep up with changes lol

edit: saw on lock screen, at top it says T-CDMA 64 instead of the old XAndroid

edit: found out the market/youtube apps aren't showing up, but it's likely because I copied the data.img over. I'm remaking it and i'll try again

edit: while im remaking data.img and testing this more, any word on if this would work on froyo? I mean the audio patch and csv thing. Like if i replaced gb files with froyo files

I... don't even know where to begin with this. Perhaps disregard any thread that says TESTING in the future.

Re: [TESTING] XDAndroid GBX0B 2.3.7 Build

update, noticed that the roaming indicator (the triangle) is on even though i disabled data roaming under network settings.

pretty sure I saw this in the froyo build too, but since I've switched over to this I haven't checked over there :S
