CURRENT OBJECTIVES (7.10.10)I am currently devoting all of my efforts and ability to compiling AOSP from source for ARM-EABI and patching where needed to make up for lack of appropriate kernel version. I'm shooting for 1.6 simply because I feel more confident taking that route. No, it won't be optimized SPECIFICALLY for the 2808, but technically should run on it just fine. This ROM is based on that new source that was found. It uses a more updated version of the sdk than is used in the Archos builds we've been using the make hybrid ROMs. http://www.darexiunism.com/update.zip Changelog: v0.1.5Fullscreen and rotation works properly now. Bundled with some stock apps, but forgot to add Music. I am kinda wanting to find the stock Android music and video apps, but I can't seem to locate them anywhere. Also need to find the Youtube app. I'll include those in my next release. Going to look into adding suspend to the home-hold menu, as well as fixing a bug where the home button doesn't put the unit to sleep if it's been running for a while. v0.1.1Set the default language to English and replaced the libs for the camera, which functions properly now. Video player defaults to portrait which messes up playback, but it DOES record correctly now. Have to fix the orientation issue, set the keybindings for the buttons, and fix the fullscreen issue. v0.1.1Set the default language to English and replaced the libs for the camera, which functions properly now. Video player defaults to portrait which messes up playback, but it DOES record correctly now. Have to fix the orientation issue, set the keybindings for the buttons, and fix the fullscreen issue. v0.1.0Returned APKs to normal and transfered over settings.apk, which worked! Removed the bloatware and added some apps I consider standard. v0.0.1Replaced the kernel with the one from our hybrid ROMs and replaced all the .apk files with the ones from the ROM I was working on that I didn't post (shame on me). The ROM boots now and calibrates properly. Now I want to narrow down which APK is resposible for the calibration issues. v0.0.0Original firmware posted by Xau. Buggy as can be on the aPad. Would boot, then go to calibration and consistently crash.

[quote name='rogerbraun;14396]If calibration fails' date=' you most probably have to change Settings.apk.[/QUOTE'] Mmm, thank you, I think you just saved me a bit of work
I'll rebuild the image in a minute and make sure that works.Let me jump on a limb and ask if anyone knows for sure if the kernel.img is just a kernel binary? I want to try to see if replacing kernel.img affected the benefits of even exploring this rom option.

I don't know. The M1 system is very similar to the W7 in that they are based off new SDK. Settings.apk is the calibration. You can force screen calibration using this: http://myapad.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/how-to-force-screen-calibration-on-your-apad/I broke my touchscreen and that's how I even have 1.3 ROMs out lolMy experience with that ROM: No sound played for me. I don't think accelerometer was working either. I broke my touchscreen so I have no idea about that, but the calibration screen seems more user friendly.

I uploaded the new version of the ROM. Some problems I'm having are as follows:- When rotating to portrait, it rotates in the wrong direction. I'm assuming that's a WM setting gone wrong.- The default language is in Chinese. I'm assuming that's either in settings.db or settings.apk?- When recording video, it records audio fine but the video is garbaged up. Dunno about that one.I've noticed that 2D acceleration in Robodefense is a little slower than before, but I'm guessing that's just the half-broken ROM thing.

1) I think it's actually the Apad that's messed up. W7 firmware does the same thing. Accelerometer values are reversed on the Apad. Don't know how to fix. 2) default.prop in boot.img. Change zh, CN to en, US3) video recording means a lib I think, but the camera libs were always buggy anyway. Is other stuff fast?

Where there would normally be a hickup there isn't now.If the aPad's accelerometer values are reversed, there's got to be a way to compensate for it. Both your ROM and Roger's rom rotate correctly.

[quote name='xaueious;14666]I wrote it up. naobsd might have taken the code off his page by accident.[/QUOTE] I see what you did there' date=' but let me ask you this. Here's what I've been doing to unpack cramfs images:[code']mkdir <imagedir>mount -o loop -t cramfs <img> /mnt/imgcp -Rv /mnt/img <imagedir>chown -Rv <user> <imagedir>[/code]Is this still applicable to boot.img or is it different because of the CRC thing?EDIT: It worked. I uploaded the new ROM and updated the first post with what I need to work on.

[quote name='slajeune;14810]Great ROM! Once you nail the rotation bug' date=' its gonna be great! That kernel / framework SHOULD be used on all ROMs. With this kernel, the aPad can actually be almost usable![/QUOTE'] Um I am pretty sure he is using the 0611 kernel. So is it faster or what?

[quote name='xaueious;14814]Um I am pretty sure he is using the 0611 kernel. So is it faster or what?[/QUOTE] Yes' date=' I'm using the 0611 kernel, as we don't have sources for the kernels and in order for the hardware to work I need to use the official aPad kernel from hiapad.comHowever, yes, the unit is NOTICABLE more responsive. Couple that with Advanced Task Killer and I hardly experience a slowdown at ALL during usage throughout the day.See the first post for the issues that I'm still sorting out, though.EDIT: For what it's worth, I emailed hiapad.com today at [email'][email protected][/email] and presented myself as the president/ceo of my company and offered cash for the kernel source and sdk. I know it's a shot in the dark, but..... if it gets us a source, then all of you better get on your knees and prepare to collectively pay your dues

not a developer and someone probably already suggested it and not sure if it's the same for this rom, but an orientation/full screen fix was done back by hellomerong (v.0.3) and incorporated by rogerbraun's roms too (i think version 3.5)looking forward to this snappier rom! :)thank you.
