so how about an image and a method to burn that image using a Mac? anyone?
A serious disappointment with the screen breaking when you took it apart. :-( The directions I posted have worked four times for me and I'm probably getting to the end of my luck or maybe the plastic is loosening up every time.
Last night I flashed another firmware build to an 8 GB, repartitioned, and then installed inside my tablet.
If I install the firmware within this thread, will it mess with my nice big partitions that I just set up for 8 GB? Will it set everything back to 4 GB partition sizes?
Thanks in advance
I actually don't know how it will, or if it will install on the 8GB partition. If your system partition size matches the stock configuration, I am thinking it will work just fine. I don't know how the recovery flashes the partition. But if it is just a partition dump, it should work as long as the target partition is of equal size or larger.
Yep, it works very nicely! My larger partition sizes are still used.
After installing xaueious .12, 1/26 firmware for the single-speaker, I found that it's a nice piece of work. After installing a few apps however, i hit the "missing shared library" problem that makes it impossible to install some apks that apparent rely on mapping or location information. A quick look across the web shows that many others are seeing the same problem regardless of ROM and tablet.
After a couple days of searching, I found this post -
Missing com.google.android.maps | Callum Macdonald
(Note that the download url for the google.zip file didn't work, and I couldn't find it on CM so I googled the file name and ended up here: gapps-hdpi-20101114-signed.zip )
Now it all works perfectly for me.
Apparently this problem may not be visibile if you've installed all of the google apps - so that might be a simpler way to approach this.
When I mount my USB I only get the second internal sd and the external sd. The primary internal sd which has the system files on it does not show up. So how do I flash this the way you say? Will I be able to flash it using a rom manager?
I tried your firmware (thank you for your hard work) on my APAD IMX515 clone (on the mainboard I can read: EPAD08 IDOX 2010-08-28) one speaker with screws, very similar to UTOPIA APAD IMX515 and ENCORE/HEROTAB M802, all was working ok except the G-Sensor. I tried the original sensors.freescale.so from my original image, and also tried to use the file from diferents sources (images) but always get some kind of error: Mirror Screen, 90 degress rotation. I take care about the Permissions with root explorer. I could hex view the differents sensor files and find that the X-Y axes were swaped on some of them. I think that the problem is with the default screen orientation but I cant find where that information is.
I also tried to copy the framework from my original images to test, but the error with the g-sensor was there.
Any body have an idea what files have more information about of g-sensor or screen orientation?
I think that this information can be useful for futures firmwares developments.
I was able to move the file system to a 8GB Class 6 microSDHC. I Moved the partitions using GParted and increase the size of the FAT32 partition, the linux partition was left in stock sizes.
I am actually not sure beyond those sensor files. Just flash system.img. Orientation is controlled by the sensor lib and a framework file (might be framework.jar).
after instaling this firmware my camera aplication show inverted video
You should have backed your firmware up. I did not build this firmware for your batch. You need to find someone who has a backup of your original firmware.
does this firmware has the patch to use the USB mouse with mouse cursor, replacing the touchscreen?
I installed this and looks great. The only problem is that the rotate sensor is working backwards. Any fixes for this?
If your rotate sensor is screwed up, someone posted a variant of this firmware for the dual speaker that might work for you: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...ker-apad-imx515-modded-two-speaker-clone.html
Hi Xau !!! i'm new comer !!! thanks for your nice rom that work perfectly !!! but i couldn't call Voip by sipdroid soft ( from market , in my cellfone it works well ) , tell me how can i fix its ? thanks u so much !!!
How do i do a backup please ? In recovery there is no option...An app is usable..?
Is it redundant if i already renamed phone.pak with RootExplorer..?
I'm using Scanpim-Address Book Sync, which is quite good..!
If i extract from the rom those 2 apk will i be able to use and sync Contacts without scanpim and the Calendar..?
Same as before, could i extract the black status bar from the rom..?
Nevertheless, i won't do anything before i know how to do a full backup..
For the record >> my device
Many thanks in advance
