    Is there any way we can take the 3.0.X kernel and add a module compatibility layer for our drivers to work? Or possibly build them form scratch using reverse engineering?
    I'm working on a 3.0.8 kernel but I've got a lot of other things going on also.

    It works, but u have to haggle with it. I found that a lot of the settings in this ROM do work. Take the battery percentage. U have to change ur settings, then completely turn ur phone off, not reboot, for them to work

    TDM, could you make the default LCD Density 140? you have to change the phone app here but 140 looks great. CM9 LCD Density Change Problem(Solved) - xda-developers

    Not everybody likes their LCD density changed, but it's very simple to do yourself and pushing that other Phone.apk is pretty easy too. I have mine at 120 right now, which is what I had it set at on IHO and it looks sweet. Also, it can cause issues with apps not showing up on the Market or showing up as incompatible, so it wouldn't be a good idea to have it set to anything other than the default in a ROM distribution.

    Have you looked into the 3.0.21 kernel yet?

    coming from someone who has no experience coding android...take this with a grain of salt.

    we had luck on the S with data when this line was enabled in the build.prop. i dont know if it will help you guys, but its worth a shot.

    Code:
    #ro.telephony.ril.v3=signalstrength,skipbrokendatacall,facilitylock,datacall,icccardstatus,1
    delete the # to make it look like this

    Code:
    ro.telephony.ril.v3=signalstrength,skipbrokendatacall,facilitylock,datacall,icccardstatus,1
    I have no doubt it will do nothing, but, hey, worth a shot maybe?
    Under which lines do I write this??

    Its already in build.prop just delete the # . You dont need to add anything.

    Delete the #, save and reboot.

    I don't see the need for messing around with LCD density, I can see my screen just fine as is. Suggesting a change like that for the Rom itself is projecting your preferences on others. That would be like me suggesting that tdm use Pantera songs for the ringtones because their very loud. Just because I have trouble hearing doesn't mean someone else wants such an obnoxious ringtone.

    has anyone else tried that build.prop edit i mentioned a few pages back?

    it may not fix mms, but it makes the toggle dance go away, and makes data solid and never disconnects, at least on the S.

    i wanted to know if it did the same for you guys

    You don't write anything, you delete the # before the line, however, this is only to make our ICS ROM work, not Gingerbread ROMs, that line doesn't even exist in those build.prop files AFAIK, I just took a walk through comparing ICS build.prop to IHOs and don't remember seeing it in the GB one.

    Awesome, I'm going to have to try this later.

    Btw, what the heck is LCD density, and what does it do?

    Basically, you can change it to make it seem like your phone has a bigger screen. So, everything is smaller, but you can fit more in terms of icons / widgets and some would say that it looks sharper and just better all around. However, it can cause issues with apps from the Market and with CM9 unless you replace the Phone.apk. Screenshots provided for comparison. The left is standard density of 160, the right is mine. My homescreen, density of 120, notice the status bar and how much smaller the bottom dock is, also, I have 5 icons on the right and room for 2 more. Also notice a huge difference in Messaging, lots more room for messages and such, but I couldn't post any sort of decent screenshot of my SMS logs, lol.

    I use lcd density modder pro to change mine... had to do it for a theme to work on cm7. With the pro version ($1-2 on play store) there's a modded play store and another file u can download to fix the app not compatible issues. It's worked great for me, been using it for a few months...it worked on aokp also when i had it. I keep mine set at 140, 120 is too small for me :-)

    Good to know, I've been using Chrome to download the APKs and just push them to my phone myself. Thanks for the tip.

    Those are some beautiful screen shots. What folders are you using? I didn't try using folders when I had alpha8 going, but I'll have to reflash it to see if I can get it going. Wifi still is shotty eh?

    I think Wi-Fi is hit or miss in Alpha 8, I'm running Alpha 7, it's linked on page 251.

    As far as the folders, it's just whatever was default on Alpha 7. You can choose between the "stack" which is what I have it on, "grid" which is self explanatory, or "fan", which puts one icon center stage and two others smaller on each side. You can also choose a circle, square, or platform background (or none at all). Only thing that I've had trouble with is getting the folder labels to show up, but that's no biggie. Using Apex Launcher, but all these options are available in the default CM9 launcher as well.

    Question about this, do you use a root manager/file browser to do this? Or is it unzipping/rezipping?

    Or is there something that I need to download like a build.prop editor?

    I just did it by extracting only the build.prop, and then I edited it using notepad++ once I finished I added it back to the zip file.
