Reconfigured zeem launcher to have more columns and rows by default.
Changed default wallpaper.
Improved boot logo a little bit.
Added default "browser" app back.

Various other small system tweaks.

Replaced "AdvancedTasKiller" with "Android Assistant" (more features)
Replaced LauncherPro with Zeem Launcher. (1/6th the size and much faster!)
Preconfigured Zeem launcher desktop and settings for best performance.
Added the latest Android Market (version 3.1.3)
Added a new boot logo (thanks CoffeeFreak!)
Added option to install a modified GREEN wmtlauncher.
Removed Aquarium live wallpaper and replaced with Matrix live wallpaper.
Removed about 2mb of ringtones as they weren't needed for anything.
Removed Gtalk as it was an OLD version.
Removed Google voice search (didn't work, use Bing! instead if you want voice search)
There's probably more, i just can't remember anymore. <_<

Couldn't resist not trying it. Chose option 1, since I have a Greenie. No work. Only option 2 for the BLUE LED would work on my GREEN LED M009S from Merimobiles. I know I'm not color blind, but I have not ruled out someone in the assembly line that could not tell the difference between a Green and a Blue LED! Funny and amazing.

Now, I'm seeing an ever so slight performance difference between 6.5 and 7, with the latter being a bit less snappier.

Also, if I could get some assistance in the removal of the "restore" files I would certainly appreciate it. I think, since the ROM is already rooted all I need is connect to a PC. Is it ok to delete the folder "restore" or only its contents?

Bottom line: this is an amazing ROM with a collective effort put into it directly by Winknix, but indirectly by Singularity, DrCheap, Uberoid, et. al. Thanks Winknix!!! Superb achievement from your visually abled friend, Joe

Is it ok to remove:

\FirmwareInstall\packages\fs_patch\data_patch\app\com.google.android.apps.googlevoice-1.apk
\FirmwareInstall\packages\fs_patch\data_patch\app\com.microsoft.mobileexperiences.bing-1.apk

and

\FirmwareInstall\packages\fs_patch\data_patch\data\com.google.android.apps.googlevoice
\FirmwareInstall\packages\fs_patch\data_patch\data\com.microsoft.mobileexperiences.bing

to remove this software from the V7 rom, or is there more to it ?

Yeah it's probably going to get harder finding working env_uboot scripts as these devices get mass produced by a number of different manufacturers with slight hardware variances . As for removing the .restore file, just flash the device with modroid, boot the unit, open "root explorer" and give it root access when it asks, then when it opens it will show the listing of /. At the top of the / directory is the .restore folder, just select (and hold it) until the menu pops up. Choose delete. :good:

And don't forget, I think there are those who are mass producing these that see Blue LEDs as Green. ha... Thank you for that advise on removing the restore file.

Thanks for this was abuout to give up as I had so much problems with Titanium. Can you please explain this in a bit more detail, what exactly do I need to do.

"If Titanium Backup gives you problems try this:
If you go into settings and change the app processing mode to indirect it will solve the freeze issue. (thanks COSA44 for the tip!)"

Thanks for all your hard work.

Deleting .restore..... done! Thanks. Just a word of appreciation for one of the very useful apps . . . cache cleaner. Great app and one that needs to be on a small footprint device such as the M009s. Thanks. Use it all the time and it bringing some "spring" to the little guy's step! Thanks again for your great ROM, wicknix.

JoeG,

I'm asking this because you appear to have the same model as me. Did you delete the env_uboot and rename the 'green-novibrate' env_uboot?..or did you leave the original file there?

Hi,

and thanks for another great ROM!

My problem is that I cant get full market working, although I have tried flushing several times.

When doing the flush, at the first step, should I log in to the market using my google account? Or does the 'let it fully load' mean just opening the market until it asks for the login information?

Secondly, how can I get Google Maps to the device?

I have a green-led MID V7 from merimobiles.


Ps. I did not like the .bat file in this rom. That can be run only in windows!

Thank you for this excellent firmware! Finally a firmware that really makes my MID v7 move. Even Angry Birds is playable now! I've tried many firmwares, including Vestinious, Singularity, Modroid v6.5 and Uberoid and this is the first firmware that is able to run games in an acceptable way.

BTW I have a MID v7 with a green LED, but from all firmwares I tried, I have to use the BLUE LED version, just as Joe G. discovered. It seems there is a manufacturer who produces MIDs with the blue LED internals, but mounts a green LED instead.

Just because I wanted to know, I tried the green LED version and it hangs during boot. The blue LED version runs perfectly well, including sound, wifi and everything without tweaks needed.

Only remark is that the change.bat exits with an error, but only after it has finished what it should do. So the error is a pure cosmetic problem. Just add a "eof" label at the end of the .bat and you're good to go.

[edit] It seems I was a bit too enthousiastic. After it entered and exited sleep mode one time, my wifi is now broken. It detects all networks in my neighbourhood, but can't connect to any. I'm now digging through the solutions mentioned in the first post.

pink thing: No. All I have done with the new v7 ROM is run option 2. I have a Greenie which runs on the Blue LED option. Hope that helps.

Thanks Joe. I'll give it a try in a few days. I see what you mean about the green/blue thing. Maybe that's why Singularity worked when it shouldn't have ;)

Here it is. The latest and last release of Modroid (unless Eken releases a Gingerbread or Honeycomb based firmware).

-Edited for space-

Download (112MB roughly) Modroid-v7 FINAL

Cheers.

If BING! force closes, it just needs to be reinstalled. First uninstall Bing!, then reinstall it. Grab it here

Bah! Google voice needs to be reinstalled also. First uninstall, then reinstall. Grab it here



Thanks wicknix,

I haven't tried it yet but even if it doesn't work I think you earned a pound of fresh roasted coffee for your hard work.

Thanks for the initial bug reports. I've uploaded a new v7 with the fixed changer.bat and a fully working market so new users don't have to modify anything. Seems google finally limited the generic devices on what was available on the market. I went ahead and changed Modroid to mimic my cell phone (LG Thrive) and all is well again from what i can tell. I can now find facebook and skype again which i couldn't before.

If you don't need the changer.bat fix and want to edit your own build.prop there is no need to download the fixed version, just change your build.prop to this: (mimics a samsung galaxy tab)

ro.product.model=GT-P1000
ro.product.brand=samsung
ro.product.name=GT-P1000
ro.product.device=GT-P1000
ro.product.board=
ro.product.cpu.abi=armeabi
ro.product.manufacturer=samsung
Then reboot, run market, sign in, do the market flush, and reboot.

@wim-nl: Yes you can safely remove them if you don't want them. Those particular apps won't harm anything if removed.

@stuartmc: I should have worded that better... Go into Titaniums settings and change the app processing mode to indirect.

@juska & funder: See above :) (and yes log in to market first, then do the flush)

@Squirrel61: Glad you like it. Not sure what the issue might be with sleep/hibernate and wifi, never used it myself. I use the tab until it dies and recharge and use it some more. :D

@Badazz: Changes listed in the first post, and the 6.5 thread is no longer pinned, so it's further down in the forum thread listing now.

Cheers.

Are the changes to Changer.bat and the market fix the only 2 changes in the "New" V7?

1) I have the generic Blue LED device so I can just copy the wmt_scriptcmd file and I dont need to do the whole changer.bat bit, correct?
2) I already did the market fix you noted above so again nothing else needed by me, correct?

Thanks,

Shahhere
