The AntiPad ROM


 While I have attempted to test this ROM thoroughly, with any complex system, components can interact unpredictably ... <Insert Standard Disclaimer Here>. Use it at your own risk.
 
First of all, this ROM is not designed for every user. It has a pretty heavy geek/developer orientation. I have a number of design philosophies which will not taste great to everyone. For example:

1. Keep the OS small and fast! Install only those apps you use every day. A larger archive of apps can be stored locally for easy access without slowing down the OS. However ...
2. You can never have too many Browsers or File Managers! OK, I'm exaggerating here to make a point. These 2 rules may seem contradictory, but I find life with a single Browser (or File Manager) is like wearing a wool sweater that's a size too small.

Undoubtedly, my selection of apps won't suit everyone either. But, all apps can be uninstalled (even system) with Link2SD. In addition, Link2SD can convert system apps to user apps and vice-versa. So, this ROM is really just an example of what can be done with the core functionality provided. Well, enough of that, on to the bullets ...

If you're still interested, you can get started by downloading the SD Card Content.zip package and extracting its contents to a full-size SD card that's at least 512 MB in size. Then, update your firmware with this SD card (it will be very quick) and proceed by following the instructions in Setup.txt on the card. I would suggest printing or keeping a copy of Setup.txt open on another device, since the SD card will not be available throughout the process. It's also available separately as a convenience.

The MicroSD FAT32 App Archive.zip is an archive of locally stored apps which, while not technically required, will enable you to construct a far more complete tablet very quickly & easily. Just extract the contents to the root of the MicroSD once you have the ROM setup and read App Archive.txt in the root for further instructions.

This ROM is complex enough that deployment is really only practical with Randomblame & Chambejp's port of CWM Recovery for the WPDN. So, a super-sized THANK YOU to them! You guys are premium!

And a hardy round of applause for my partner in crime, Mr Krinkle.:clapping: Without his help & feedback, I would have given up on this a long time ago. Thanks for everything, Bro!

 
Known Issues

1. On the VMCR, Eclair seems prone to spitting out spurious "Application not responding" error messages. To deal with these, consult the CPU Meter (SeePU) in the taskbar to determine if the CPU is stuck at 100% busy. If not, then tap "Wait." If it is and it remains that way for several seconds, then you should probably force close the app. If the error is reported at boot, it's best to "Wait" and see if it re-occurs. :pardon:

2. Again, on the VMCR, Eclair seems prone to developing a condition I refer to as "Insomnia" where the device is unable to go to sleep or is unable to stay asleep. Either symptom results in a device that drains its battery very rapidly. The problem seems to involve 3rd-party apps that use "Wake Locks" and usually involves interaction between multiple 3rd-party apps (although there are exceptions). This problem is EXTREMELY difficult & time-consuming to troubleshoot and very easy to produce. In some cases, adding a single app can do it. So, most of the time, the best solution is to restore the last backup (that could sleep & stay asleep) with CWM Recovery. This issue does not occur in TAPR v2.1.3 OOTB, but can certainly re-appear, so watch for it. =@

3. In TAPR v2.1.3, the Google Search Bar on the center homescreen of Zeam, LauncherPro, Lightning & stock Home is purely cosmetic at this point. It does not function. Perhaps this will be corrected in an update of the ICS Searchbox app. :(

4. In TAPR v2.1.3, once you decide which launcher option you prefer to use as default, you may need to remove the ES Task Manager widget from the left homescreen and re-create it. For some reason, it won't function properly on multiple launchers w/o this work-around. <_<


 
Warnings

1. I strongly recommend that you research the use of ClockWorkMod Recovery before attempting any operations beyond simple backup and restore. CWM Recovery is an extremely powerful tool and can easily be used to brick your tablet if you don't know what you are doing. Be sure to look into the SD card names, since they will not be what you expect.

2. I must also strongly discourage hacking this ROM in an attempt to run it overclocked. While I discourage overclocking the VMCR in any case, this ROM already pushes the hardware very close to its limits in a number of ways. So, it should be the worst possible candidate for overclocking.

I just installed this rom. The install was amazing. Very professional. the start-up animation is nice too. The CWM is really impressive. A much nicer job than what Velocity did. Alas it couldn't turn the VMCR into a Samsung Galaxy. I find it it's still a little balky. Don't get me wrong. This is easily the *BEST* ROM for this little ereader. But I found the overall feel is that the unit is a bit underpowered (maybe cuz it is) but that is only fixed by getting another tablet.

I partitioned my internal micro SD (8 GB) before starting the upgrade and then formatted the partitions in the step that described the partitioning of the card. A few warnings about unresponsive apps. The biggest problem is that I cannot connect to the unit over USB. Haven't tried wireless yet. I am hoping for better battery life. It's been dismal (with the other ROMs) unless I powered down the unit.

Great job and a 'well done.'

Wow, thanks for the kind words! I really appreciate them!

Alas it couldn't turn the VMCR into a Samsung Galaxy.

:rofl: I can't seem to pull off that walking on water thing either!:lol:

You're absolutely right, it is underpowered for the job that it's asked to do. My guess is that even at 533MHz, the SMDK6410 platform was probably fine in a phone with the 270x480 displays that were common in 2009, but 600x800 is asking it to push around almost 4 times as many pixels - and that's a big difference.
Changing the CPU governor to performance will help somewhat but cost a little battery life. Changing the I/O scheduler to deadline will improve responsiveness, but introduce a little instability too. So, these tweaks are disabled by default.

A few warnings about unresponsive apps.

Yeah, I have not been able to track down the origin of these but I'm still investigating. In most cases, the CPU does not stay busy, so they should simply be regarded as erroneous - tap Wait. Only force close if the CPU stays 100% busy longer than you think it should based on recent actions.

The biggest problem is that I cannot connect to the unit over USB.

This is a major concern.:shok: I've seen this lately in my year old R101, but I thought the USB port was just getting worn/loose. So far, if it doesn't connect in 3-5 seconds, I unplug it and try again. I don't think it's ever failed on the second attempt. Please keep me advised regarding this issue!

And again, thanks so much for your feedback! :D

I got a chance to fool around some more with the new ROM. Today USB connected just fine. Transferred files to the Cruz's SD cards that were mounted as mass storage devices on my laptop and also connected via adb shell. Wireless worked just fine. Market did not. 'Download was unsuccessful' was the notification. That tells you a lot. NOT! Tried getjar but when I tried to DL something it just threw me back into Market with the same result. I really don't care because anything not included with your packages would probably just lead to performance trouble anyways (I think this is objective and not 'sour grapes'). Using Market I think of myself as a Windows 98 user trying to use current software. Just isn't pretty.

I used FBReader on and epub. Worked fine. Played some mp3s. Used PDF Reader on the Linux Journal. It worked better than ezPDF which, until now, I thought was the best pdf reader out there. LJ's going digital was the big reason for getting the reader. It's just large enough to render a full page that can be (for me) easily read. Still undecided about battery life. My problem has always been the battery going dead when the reader is supposed to be in sleep mode (simple, short touch of the power button). My suspicion has been that it is a short coming in Eclair itself. Time will tell. Using the defaults on the cpu controller with brightness turned way down and wireless off.

In short, I still like. Even battery life doesn't improve it's still what I had before the change. I think your general layout and included apps are well-thought-out. It's amazing what a nicer looking product it is that what came from VM retail. The fact they don't include Market in their products tells you a lot about how much they put into R and D. Don't think I'll ever buy another product from them. However, it is perfectly adequate as an eBook reader. If all one wanted to do was read books and listen to mp3s, it's a fine product seeing they were going for well under $100 at the end.

Whew! That's a relief concerning USB.

Wireless worked just fine. Market did not. 'Download was unsuccessful' was the notification.

Hmmm, Mr. Krinkle was reporting issues with Market too, but I'm not sure if it's related. You do have sufficient free space on /cache and /data?
Yeah, GetJAR is becoming increasingly dependent on Market.:bad:

...the battery going dead when the reader is supposed to be in sleep mode.

Yeah, I suspect that either the issues with WiFi or ill-mannered apps resulted in most ROMs never actually allowing the device to sleep but have no proof or solution yet. WIP.
Oh, I did boot tune The AntiPad ROM for a 90 second boot time target hoping to make powering down less of a PITA. It ain't much, but (dare I say it?) I hope I'm close to curing the insomnia too.

It sounds like you're doing the best that can be done ATM to curb power consumption. I assume you've power-cycled the battery 2 or 3 times attempting to restore full capacity?

I agree with your appraisal of the product 100%. But, in fairness, we must also admit that VM never really claimed it was anything but a reader.
Again, thanks for your kind words and follow-up! :D

Sleep mode is definitely a problem. Last night I notice the screen-on-when-its-off syndrome. Battery goes quickly when in sleep mode. A couple of times the reader turned on when I picked it up when it was in sleep mode. 3 or 4 hours can produce a produce a considerable change in the battery level. I also noticed my cpu being pegged out for long stretches. I disabled Dr Eye and things are more reasonable. Virus checkers can drag down even desktops so what chance does the Cruz have?

A short time ago I put my reader on the side for a few weeks and was surprised to find that the battery stayed remarkably charge (Like 90%) for a couple of weeks. I have yet to find a process manager that shows cpu and memory usage. Maybe I haven't found it yet. The file manager in the stock Cruz had a nice one. Maybe I'll disable some more apps. Any suggestions? I could do without most anything for more battery life, a proper sleep mode. I don't care about market and I'm not going to use it for email so those are likely candidates.

Otherwise, everything is great. I haven't run into any other problems.

I found this link about eclair where sleepmode is mentioned link
Someone mentions adding pm.sleepmode=2 in startup.txt. I can't find that file. Is this any help? Obviously I have almost no idea of how this fits into the scheme of things.

Frankly, I'm baffled as well. :unknw: It looks like they're talking about some sort of init script, but I'm not aware of a startup.sh or any script that would have a .txt extension. I suppose it could be part of the bootloader or kernel images, because IDK anything about their contents.
My gut feeling is that if it's not enabled by default in Eclair, Google probably considered it beta and it might be risky or problematic. Of course, so are some of the "Turbo Mods" I enable in build.prop, but I tested them pretty extensively before deciding to enable them by default.

Which reminds me, re: performance, I should have stated that after updating GPU drivers from Samsung and enabling GPU acceleration of the Android GUI, I turned on all window animations. The performance hit is significantly less than it was on OEM firmware, but there is still a hit. So, these can be turned down or off, if desired.

First off, I want to concur with Windom's statement above.. what we have here is a ROM of the highest order for our device, and I for one feel it includes marked improvement in a myriad of ways. -So here's to new development!
:drinks:

Someone mentions adding pm.sleepmode=2 in startup.txt. I can't find that file. Is this any help? Obviously I have almost no idea of how this fits into the scheme of things.

You could throw that into build.prop with proper permissions set.
I did try
pm.sleep_mode=1
a while back on JGM 4.0, seemed like it was not half waking quite as much.. the AntiPad beta ROM Delta-9 cooked up seemed at first to keep power consumption
pretty low for me, but after some tampering with restores and reflashing I began to get crashes and drains during sleep.. I assumed they were isolated issues- until now.
<_<
Maybe it was something I did?... not sure.. Imma reflash my R101 with the release right now. I am dang curious.
Sorry Delta! I didn't see power drains consistently.. So again, I didn't bother you about that.

Thanks for the kind words, MK.

Power consumption is an issue even on OEM (and on many other Android devices). I'm starting to suspect that the only real solution will not be acceptable to anyone. So, Market is my focus ATM.:sorry:

When I can find the time, I'll explain my theory re: power and how to test it.

Partners in crime,

Re: Power
Try this out if/when you can - use Link2SD to freeze Contacts (not Storage) in System applications & then reboot. It may have no impact at all, but apparently has caused battery drain on other tablets. I added it because I wanted the contacts list for Google Voice. The phone component will disappear as well. Please let me know what you think.
I saw this study elsewhere a couple months back, found it very discouraging: The REAL Cost of Free Apps. Google needs to address this!:(

Re: Market
I think I may be close to diagnosing the Market problem, thanks to Mr. Krinkle!:clapping: If so, the fix won't be very pretty.:bad: But, only time will tell.

I didn't know there was such a facility in link2sd. Now it's my new toy. I was rather aggressive and froze anything that I didn't think was operation critical and seemed to use network resources. I froze a whole slew of things. However, after 6-7 hours my battery was down to 30%. Maybe a *little* better. When I picked it up this morning, it turned on by itself. It's still not sleeping deep enough. I froze another couple of apps. After a charge, I'll test again.

I haven't been able to see much difference with any of the things I've been trying either. But, I think you're getting substantially longer than I am. I'm seeing more like 3-4 hours with 20-30% charge remaining, but that's just a guestimation. In addition, my battery is over a year old now with 1-2 charge/discharge cycles per day.

It sounds like you're well on your way to testing my worst-case scenario. I fear that nothing we can do will make much difference at all unless we can eliminate all WakeLocks. A little research suggests that this functionality in Android was both ill-concieved and poorly implemented (1).

And if that picture isn't ugly enough, my own experience with the power management (PM) capabilities of Linux is NOT encouraging. Here, implementation of any PM seems spotty, at best (Sorry Linus). I'm afraid that, perhaps, what we've got is a house of cards (Android PM) built on a foundation of jello (Linux PM).80

I put the reader in a dark room. A few hours later I checked on it and found the screen on very dim. Hard to see even in the dark but that's why it turned on when I picked it up. Of course, the battery had drained appreciably. My uneducated guess is that it is a sleep mode problem and will persist no matter what programs are turned off. I wish a developer from Velocity was around. I bet she would know.

My R101 has always turned on then off during the supposed sleep cycle. Quite irritating. How do I get the link2sd going? For a $75 eReader that acts like a tablet--I like it.

You're correct. This issue existed in the stock firmware from Velocity Micro and has persisted in every ROM based on it AFAIK. I am looking into it as time permits, but I'm not optimistic.:mellow:

Got the rom on this morning and I love it lol. Just one thing. I cant seem to get link2sd to work for some reason. When I open it up it says "Second partition not found". Not sure what to do here. I've tried using the MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition that was talked about on the http://www.link2sd.info/description site, followed the directions on how to set it up. and it seemed to work. When I go back into link2sd though, no dice.


PS.....

Anyone tips on removing some of the apps that came with the rom? I love most of them but there's a few that I know will never been used and will just hang around in my int storage forever lol.

Unfortunately, MiniTool is incompatible. From the 1st post:

If you're still interested, you can get started by downloading the SD Card Content.zip package and extracting its contents to a full-size SD card that's at least 512 MB in size. Then, update your firmware with this SD card (it will be very quick) and proceed by following the instructions in Setup.txt on the card.

Again, from the 1st post:

Undoubtedly, my selection of apps won't suit everyone either. But, all apps can be uninstalled (even system) with Link2SD. In addition, Link2SD can convert system apps to user apps and vice-versa.


PM me if you continue to experience difficulties. My goal is a painless installation! :D
