Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Port for the HTC G1


Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Port for the HTC G1

Some devices simply refuse to die, and the very first Android phone—the HTC G1—is one of them. It originally shipped with Android 1.0, and while it didn’t get an official update after Android 1.6 Donut, it has been running every version that the developer community here at XDA has been throwing at it. And now, the device has CyanogenMod 10-based Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ported to it!

Porting Jelly Bean to this device is a truly remarkable feat when you consider the humble specs of the device, which sports a 528 MHz processor, only 192 MB of RAM, and just 256 MB of internal storage space. However, that didn’t keep XDA Recognized Developer jcarrz1 and his team SoCal Devs from porting the latest version of Android to it.

Here is a video of the ROM in action on the G1:

The ROM is currently in pre-alpha, and there are a few features that don’t work yet such as cell service, data, and screen rotation. The speed leaves a lot to be desired as well, so don’t expect to use it as your daily driver. Rather, this is sort of a proof of concept saying that it can be done. Several key features such as the touch screen, WiFi, CM-specific tweaks and apps work fine, and even Google Now partially works!

You can download the ROM and install it to your G1 by following these instructions. For updates or feedback, head over to the discussion thread.

How to make your low end devices lag free and lightning fast.(V6 supercharger)


V6 supercharger for me is one of the greatest achievements of xda.Simply, because it provides the low end and legacy devices like galaxy mini great memory management which makes them run very very smoothly indeed with little or no lags at all.Xda member zeppelinrox is the one who has made this script and it works on all devices and almost all ROMs.As for me, i have experienced it and i have got to admit that it is really worth it and really makes your 280 RAM device run like anything.So, the question is what does it do that makes the device s smooth.V6 Super Charger makes your phone super snappy, fast with better multitasking management. It rearranges and fixes Out Of Memory (OOM) Groupings, Priorities and LowMemoryKiller values to make your low RAM device fast, by freeing memory when possible thereby increasing the overall performance of you device.This post will    provide you information related to everything related to V6 supercharger like the requirements, the installation process, the way to implement in ICS and jellybean and how to start it at boot.

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Fully Rooted with Superuser and BusyBox 1.19.4. If you install script manager
2. Please update BusyBox Free (Stericson) to v7.8.2 on PlayStore.
3. Proceed to BusyBox Installation. Install BusyBox 1.19.4 to SYSTEM/BIN directory.
4. Reboot device.
5. Launch script manager and goto the script. Tap on SU.
6. It will fail on 1st time, just Try Again until all text are Green
7. Reboot device.Boot will take a LONG time as it “optimizes all your apps”

Steps for installing V6 supercharger on your device.

This part applies to everyone. The V6 SuperCharger requires a couple files to be downloaded to the root of the SD card. You can find them here at the original XDA thread. Download all files and extract/move them to the root of the SD card.

Go to the Android Market and download Script Manager. Open the app and tap “Browse as root”. Grant SM superuser permisisons and hit “OK”. Now navigate to /sdcard or wherever you placed the file V6_SuperCharger_update8. Select that file and a box should appear.
super-charger-v6-script-manager-startup

The only option necessary to run the SuperCharger is root access. Tap the small root icon above “Su”. Hit run, grant SuperCharger root access in the pop-up, and hopefully everything works.

If all goes well you’ll be greated with a large text menu of 17 items. These items are options for customizing how your phone uses its RAM. The Aggressive options tend to cut down on multitasking (and thus speed up the phone). The Balanced options allow for more apps to run.Choose the options according to your needs and continue.

Steps for Installing V6 supercharger on Jelly bean and Ice cream sandwich.

1. Run the NEWEST V6 SuperCharger script as always.

Note: You may get Segmentation Fault errors running the V6 SuperCharger script on ICS due to a flakey su (superuser) binary.
To resolve the issue, you can:

  •  Go HERE for a fixed SU binary.
  •  Go HERE and get the Super charger kit.

2. Patch and install services.jar

A) Automatically – Use the latest Update 9 RC* and select ICS Service Centre’s automatic transmission. (seemless webapp integration and installation to automatically make your launcher die hard) Actually, when you run V6 Update 9 RC* for the first time,this option is by default, so you really don’t have to do anything.
B) Semi-automatically – Make your launcher die hard with the ICS OOM Priority Charger webapp (latest Update 9 RC* can install and apply permissions via ICS Service Centre’s manual mode)

3.SuperClean & ReStart! (ie. Wipe Dalvik Cache & Reboot)

Notes: For decent launcher detection use at least V6U9 RC6.9 or newer and check the bOOM Stick to see if the launcher the desired ADJ value!

  •  If it doesn’t boot (unlikely if you did the edits yourself), try wiping caches (not data)
  • If it still doesn’t boot, you can always just re-flash your current untouched rom but do have a backup nevertheless.
  •  If you get FCs, fixing permissions will solve that. (Use the “Fix Emissions” Option in the latest V6 SuperCharger Script! )

That’s It!!!

LOAD 99SUPERCHARGER.SH ON BOOT:

1. Launch Script Manager and press Back Key twice until you reach [/] Directory.
2. Open /Data and look for 99SuperCharger.sh, tap it to select and run using Script Manager.
3. Select [SU] and [Boot] and hit the RUN button. After finish, just close it.
4. Enjoy V6_SuperCharger – Super-Saiyan Mode.
5. Do not uninstall Script Manager. It is used by 99SuperCharger.sh every Boot-up.

For a video tutorial check his out.

That’s all folks!You have successfully installed the V6 supercharger script on your device and now it will run smoother and better than ever before.For any Questions feel free to comment and you will be replied instantaneously!Happy Supercharging!!!

Reviewing Android 4.1 Jellybean


Only a few days ago, Google released the latest addition in the Android family, The jellybean version 4.1 and techies are onto it in a flash.The people @thinkdigit.com posted a great article reviewing the Jellybean.Here it is.

Google introduced the latest version of the Android operating system at its I/O developer event last night, called Jelly Bean, which will be available for platform lead devices by mid-July, along with the source code. Of course, we’ll have to wait a while for manufacturer-customized devices to get their own updates.

Android 4.1 Jellybean is an incremental update to ICS (not Android 5.0 as had been expected), which is aimed to make ICS “smoother, faster and more fluid”. It mostly brings UI changes ranging from improved notifications and onscreen keyboard, to widget control, voice typing and the native camera app. Most importantly however, are the host of developer changes (full list available on the Android Developers site) it brings, which promise to give app creators greater flexibility and control.

Project Butter
First up, in the list of changes to Jelly Bean, is Project Butter – which uses vsync timing and triple buffering to make the touch responsiveness of Jelly Bean devices as smooth as butter. All animation, display refreshes will be locked to a 16 millisecond vsync heartbeat. Google says touch responsiveness has been further improved by predicting where the next touch will be, and in case of a time-out, will use a CPU input boost to ensure minimal latency.

Widget Control
Google has improved the widget-adding experience with Jelly Bean. App widgets can now be automatically resized, depending on where the user drops them on the homescreen, the size to which the user expands them, and the space currently available on the homescreen. Developers will now also have control to reorient the interface of the widget, depending on the size.

Widgets

Notifications

Notifications
One of the biggest changes to Ice Cream Sandwich is the new Notifications menu in Jelly Bean. Essentially, notifications will be more than just pieces of information, but now, will be interactive, and can be expanded or collapsed to show more information, access features, etc, without opening the relevant app. Notifications will now support image content, feature up to three preset actions (such as sharing, or +1-ing), and, display priority is now user-configurable.

Voice Typing and Search
Google has introduced Offline Voice Typing to Jelly Bean, placing the previously-cloud-accessed Google Speech Recognizer on the device itself. For now, it only supports U.S. English, but more languages are due to be added later. Google has also improved voice search, with faster response times, increased accuracy, and a more natural sounding voice. Relevantly, Google also announced it would be supporting more languages soon, with 18 new languages, including Persian, due soon.

Camera and Gallery
Google has made improvements to the native Ice Cream Sandwich camera and gallery apps as well, with the new Jelly Bean version supporting such features as an undo button, simple deletion UI, and a film strip mode.

Google Now
Lastly, Google has finally introduced a Siri-competitor, called Google Now, which will use the Card UI and voice to provide search information, before you search it – something Google has been advocating for years now. It will automatically check things like traffic and public transport information, and update the user. It can also remind users about the events, etc. We’ll have to wait and see just how it works to get a better idea, though you could check out the video below for a glimpse.

So,this will indeed be a good addition to the Android family and all the android lovers out there like me are waiting to get our hands on it ASAP..!!!!
