ok. time to stop, take stock.

and ask a favour

in six years of building I always aim for one thing and ask one thing as well.

I aim for releasing something that works out of the box.

I ask for feedback so I can improve.

there have been a lot of downloads and little feedback.

please could people let me know. how they find this?

and also what version you are using?

I'd like to know if Dave_ud's issue affects other 1653 users. I've got a 33. I build with what I've got but I'm after something that works for everyone.

thanks
Ive got a 1653 Pad and touchscreen works fine for me. Just installed it 5 mins ago though. Any chance of including the latest gapps in the rom? and a decent thumb keyboard (or am I missing the point of the rom?) Will let you know if I have any probs...

keep up the good work

Thanks for the feedback. Appreciated.

My aim for this is a simple build that works and that you can customise and add to. I only included the stock keyboard as people have different likes. It's easier for you to add the one you like.

I've not themed for the same reason.

Re your market issue. I've not experienced this. Anyone else?

I'm testing the next update. Plan on releasing this weekend.

Dpi changed so things are bigger, all bug fixes included.

I'm using a 1633.
This ROM is working fine for me. I have had the odd freeze, but only a couple in a few days use. A couple of SODs but nothing what I would class as regular. Otherwise it's snappy. Market working fine. Video, graphics, Wifi, touch screen all happy. This feels like VeganTab got a performance boost. I personally would change the DPI though. A bit too small for my eyes. Is there anyway I can change it back to the same DPI as Vegan Tab? I tried Spare Parts font size but didn't seem to do anything. I would also vote for a thumb keybaord, but I get I can download one from the market. 8.5/10 !

Great ROM.
Only problem I have and its a bit of a biggy for me, is that quite a few Market Place apps are coming up "This app is not compatible with your device" They include so far:

  • BBC iPlayer
  • Astro file manager (the new Version)
  • Dolphin Browser HD
they all worked fine with VeganTab
I am running on a 53 tab with
  • CyanogenMod7.2.0-chrisd1a1 - gingerpadd - RC3
  • hybridkernel_v3
  • DataSignalIconFix-CM7.2RC0.98-REPACK
This ROM seems very quick and stable for me. Followed the install instructions to the letter, done a full wipe including dalvik wipe.

Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks

This installed fine for me, you haven't unzipped it have you?

Try renaming it to update.zip and then selecting that from the CWM update page.

Dear chrisd1a1,

Thank you for your job, excellent rom! Several issues about RC2 (or RC3, as the file has RC3 in the name):

1) It seems that 140 DPI is an issue for the market as many applications including an original Angry Birds became incompartible with the device. I have resolved this issue by installing LCD Dencity Modder and returning to 160 DPI (as in stock roms and Vegan ROM). Then I have to clean Market cache and its data to achieve an opportunity to install these "incompartible" applications.

2) New fonts look great for English version but they look terrible for Russian version. Is it possible to return to previous fonts without reflashing RC1?

3) Unfortunately internal SD card does not mount correctly for me. It indicates that SD card is mounting on the boot but then I have empty folder in mnt/sdcard and no application can see this internal memory.

UPD: I have found that the device is mounting internal SD card to mnt/emmc with strange encoding (I have corrupted names of some files) so major part of applications can't find it. Is it possible to resolve this issue?

Thank you in advance.

freeman_g, go to Settings -> CyanogenMod -> Applications and check "Use internal storage"

This will rename your internal memory from emmc to sdcard and your external sdcard to sdcard2

Ellhead,

Thank you, I didn't know about that. Then I do still have the only problem with fonts (Russian) and encoding of the names at internal storage (some files and folders have squares in names)

Hi Chris, I'm sorry to hear that about your son, I hope he'll get better soon.

About the ROM: It's great, best ROM i've used so far, stable, smooth, snappy, market works fine as well now.

I made a donation.


Thank you.
