    question:

    how necessary will it be to run an external (SD) partition with this ROM?

    i'm running IHO CM7 (backside...terrible name btw) and love it... waiting for the right time to upgrade to this ICS ROM but want to make sure i understand what changes i need to make to my setup first.

    any info you guys can provide would be much appreciated.


    beyond that...i am also wondering how to change the fonts universally on this rom...i used ROMTOOLBOX PRO because i like to roll with the droid font and CM9 will let me use that font for app labels in the drawer and desktop but not in the system settings. i like to keep things symmetrical so if there is any way to change ALL the fonts across the board i would be curious to know how.

    thanks again team...i love my OV more and more every time i visit this site.

    From my research, there is a problem with the Hosts file not being formatted properly. Could be wrong, but I changed the format to Unix text as opposed to the Windows/DOS format it was originally in, and it fixed it.

    Use a root file manager to replace the 'hosts' file with the one included in the archive in the /etc/ folder, or use ADB. "adb push hosts /etc/"

    Ive installed it without an ext. partition and with an ext. patition.. it'll boot just fine for me either way.

    Youre running one of the best ROMS. There is no 'right' time for this super unofficial ICS. My guess would be whenever you have time to try it out.. you MIGHT want to wait since its still an ALPHA.. Basically Alpha means that its not done yet. Its still being worked on with fixes almost every single day. So its almost a guarantee than you WILL run into problems. Other than that you can wait or w/e.

    Im not taking the spot light from TDM if you will. Its amazing what hes done so far ... im just trying to let folks know that its ALPHA ..its almost ready to install for daily use... complaining and bug reporting are two distinctive actions so thank you, testers and bug reporters!

    Its not really an issue that we've discussed i think. You might want to try searching on this thread using the search function, located at the top forum thread bar.

    If you don't plan on installing tons and tons of apps, you should have no problem without partitioning your SD card. However, the Dalvik cache tends to fill up rather quickly since, according to TDM, ICS takes up more space than previous versions, leaving less for the cache. I installed maybe 40 apps from the Play Store when I started getting "Package file is invalid." errors, which I figured out was because the cache partition was just about full. You'll probably run into that problem especially if you intend to have some large games or other apps installed. I partitioned my SD card yesterday, and now I can probably install as many apps as I could realistically want to have.

    So, in one sentence, you can run this ROM just fine without the extra partition on your SD card, but you'll probably end up wanting to partition it if you like to have lots and lots of apps installed.

    Copy the file I linked to your SD card.

    Download ES File Explorer from Play. Open it up, Press the menu button, tap Settings, scroll down and check Up To Root, Root Explorer (it will bring up another box, press Yes and then Allow), and press Mount File System.

    Press the Back button, and then press it again. Right under your status bar, you should see a little folder icon that says 'Local' and then after that there is another box that just has a '/' in it.

    Scroll down and find the folder labeled 'etc'. Tap it. Scroll down to find the file called 'hosts'. Press and hold on it until a menu comes up, tap 'Rename' and rename it to 'hosts.bak'.

    Tap the back button, scroll down, and tap 'sdcard'. Scroll down to find the file you downloaded from me (called 'hosts'), long press on it and when the menu comes up, press 'Copy'

    Press the back button, find the 'etc' folder again and open it up. Press the 'Paste' button at the top of the screen. Reboot. Google Music should now stream / download as normal.

    Not true.
    if you change dpi you are in risk of reboots or force closing while launching an app like 'phone'..like those many many people here in this thread.

    the app clearly warns you that you might get reboots/freezes and FC every time you launch something.

    Ive tested this before and it was a reboot/freezes/hangs/ and force close mess.

    its still an Alpha and messing with the DPI and then to report a bug (reboots and force closing) (after the dpi app description tells you its a risk)is kinda a non forward movement . The O/P clearly had no idea what he was doing, just saying :P


    sorry if that sounded mean. Im just trying to help

    I feel like donating my current OV to you for future development, I'll look into it




    Thats exactly why I'm trying to switch phones fast, there is no way I'm paying 10 dollars more (I'm kinda cheap..), they're really starting to get on my nerves, ever since they started throttling us, I haven't been too happy..
    Better idea!
    Buy the unlocked Galaxy Nexus and pay $30 per week

    @tdm--- had to put this badboy in timeout today... started acting up yesterday... scrolling would slowdown to an eventual reboot... (scrolling while reading byor thread)... three reboots got me through pages 1-9... gave up and switched back to my stable... looking forward to the next!... thanks... :-)

    edit: i tried operamini and the native browser both btw... cleraring cache/delvik helped of course but it only lasted for a short while... :-)

    I am running on a DPI of 120 just fine. You have to replace Phone.apk with one from an LDPI ICS rom. The trick is to edit the build.prop in the rom zip file before you flash. That way, every app you install is set up for the DPI you're using as opposed to switching it after everything is installed.

    There is a correct way to do this with no issues, most just don't know how.

    Right on. I don't run a Ton of apps but I have noticed MORE internal memory free under this ICS build than I do the IHO build so I think I'll be alright.

    CANNOT WAIT TO MAKE THIS MY DAILY. The interface is super clean and it freaking SCREAMS.

    Been working on a ROM updater today. Reminds me why I'm a server dev not a GUI dev.... the GUI stuff is a pain. But hopefully I can at least make it decent looking.
    The updater is shaping up. Got a functional (but not pretty) UI, ROMs can be downloaded, and I just got my first successful rdiff application.

    Note rdiff is a way to take a file plus a delta and create a new file. This allows one to apply a "patch" to an existing ROM to create a new, updated ROM. For example, full AOSP a10pre2 ROM is 87M, while the delta from AOSP a10pre1 is about 20M. So if you have a10pre1 downloaded, the updater will fetch the delta and save 67M of data transfer. The size of the deltas varies though .. this was a nice example, but don't expect many deltas for quatttrimus to be that small. On the other hand, as development slows, the deltas will tend to shrink. I expect that IHO deltas would routinely be under 10M, if the IHO devs were to adopt this.

    I'm not working on a recovery. What would be the motivation?
