ROM] FroyoBread for x8 | v016


Intro
This is my personal ROM in my device. This is also my first attempt to build and release a ROM I didn’t plan to make this, but because of the screen on/off animation, I had no choice but to make a CM6 build. And here it is, a mostly original and latest CM6. This build version is CM6.2.0 RC 0.

The ultimate goal is a fast, smooth and lightweight Froyo having GingerBread (and some of my customized) features. I will gradually port Gingerbread’s feature to this Froyo. Yeah I know, many people want a fully working Gingerbread, not a mix like this. We have lots of difficulties to bring Gingerbread to X8:

  • Adhoc with WEP is not supported in CM7 at the moment. It’s very important to me though
  • Rewrite of libcamera needs lots of effort
  • (My personal opinion) Most important fact: GB is not as smooth as Froyo. I don’t know but I still have a feeling that Froyo is smoother than Gingerbread, especially in menu scrolling.

I had to take some libs and configuration files from racht’s ROM. (Thank you racht, and I also thank you for your great compiling machine! You’re our hero!).

Many things should work and it should be smooth. However I didn’t test it carefully, it may contain some bugs.
Features: We almost have a Gingerbread with special things now!

    • Clean stock CM6: Smoothness. Stability. Working Camera.
    • Minimal number of apps are installed. This brings you the choice to install and use only what you want.
    • Lightweight: I got maximum 107MB of free RAM.
    • My favorite modules: X8Gesture v007, X8Undervolt v001, X8MDDI v001
    • Gingerbread’s theme with some improvements

 

  • Gingerbread’s CRT screen on/off animation

One response to “ROM] FroyoBread for x8 | v016

  1. this is REALLY fast.
    only thing it lacks are the usual 6.1 cm bugs: no light sensor and radio starts on speakers.

    other than that it’s great!
    currently giving [ROM]Stable 2.2.1 ROM for X8 | Based on miniCM a try
    versions seem really similar.
