[Release] CyanogenMod 7.1 "u8160" Port
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:54:40 PM »
CyanogenMod 7.1 (RC1) "u8160" Port
Latest release: v0.2 [3 October 2011]
Latest hotfix: none
Latest Google Apps package: official: minimal (20110613)
| unofficial: minimal / full (20110815)

Please note: This port may work on other Huawei phones, but only the U8160 and U8180 are confirmed to be 100% compatible so far.

Hey folks,

This is a port of Cyanogen 7.1RC1 (based on Android Gingerbread 2.3.7) for the Vodafone Smart VF858 (Huawei U8160) and Huawei X1 (U8180). The current port status is stable - all hardware is working correctly.

Important: You need to have ClockworkMod Recovery in order to install this ROM - see my signature for the link and full install instructions.

Installation:
  • Reboot into ClockworkMod (see the dedicated topic).
  • Choose the option install update from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard.
  • Install the following packages:
    • The base package, named update-cm-7.1.0-RC1-u8160-vX.Y-signed.zip
    • [Optional] The latest hotfix package for the same base package version, named u8160-vX.Y-hotfixZ.zip
    • The latest Google Apps package, named gapps-gb-DATE-signed.zip
  • Once all packages are installed, you can now reboot.
Installation (Hotfix Updates Only):
Hotfix packages are cumulative. This means that you only need to install the latest hotfix, as it contains all the updates from previous versions included.
  • Download the latest hotfix package and transfer to the SD card.
  • Reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
  • Choose install update from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard, select the hotfix and confirm installation.
  • Reboot. Hotfixes do not require a data-wipe unless specifically requested.

Releases / Changelog:
  • v0.2 - 3 October 2011:
    • Data wipe?: Not needed unless you have problems.
    • Updated CyanogenMod source: now based on Gingerbread version 2.3.7.
    • Kernel now supports under/overclock from 30Mhz - 710Mhz (min/max frequency is set to 30Mhz - 600Mhz by default, so you must manually activate the higher frequencies via Settings -> CyanogenMod Settings -> Performance -> CPU settings). Thanks to estebanSannin. [COLOR="Red"]NOTE:[/COLOR] My phone is very unstable at 691Mhz, and freezes immediately at 710Mhz. I am providing these higher frequencies just in case your phone has better tolerance for overclocking. I accept no responsibility for any damage caused as a result of overclocking.
    • FM Radio app: fixed seeking (left/right arrows).
    • Disabled automatic brightness (it potentially avoids battery drain, and never worked anyway). Thanks to tas0s for the tip.
    • Enable workaround to prevent corruption issues if you use the Simple2EXT app2sd app.
    • Reverted Gallery app to 2D version, due to lack of hardware 3D acceleration on our phone.
    • Added compatibility with sebastian404's ClockworkMod port. You can now install this ROM using his CWM recovery (as well as my own).
    • Improved FM volume calculation, reduced overall volume & small fixes to audio code.
    • Various small bugfixes.
  • v0.1 - 12 September 2011:
    • Hotfix 1 [18 September 2011]: Boot: removed custom lowmemorykiller tweaks; kernel: various updates (smartassV2, TinyRCU, Simple and V(R) IO schedulers), bugfixes and optimizations, changed default scheduler to Simple IO; libaudio: code cleanup; Framework: enabled hardware-accelerated 2D rendering.
    • Data wipe?: You must always data-wipe when upgrading from Froyo -> Gingerbread.
    • First release. All hardware appears to be working correctly.

Further Information

Not working / TODO:
  • Official support for ROM Manager.
Not working / WONTFIX:
  • Nothing yet.
Technical details:
  • Kernel: based on Huawei U8160 2.6.32 source with multitouch enabled, BFQv1 IO scheduler, upgraded CPU schedulers (including smartass/interactive), and some patches to improve CyanogenMod compatibility.
Before you ask...
I have no interest or intention to further "mod" the ROM with any kind of hacks or customizations (like custom apps, themes, Swype, etc.). My only aim is to have a 100% stable port of Cyanogen code. Any such requests will be ignored.

Reporting bugs
You must follow these instructions exactly, or I will ignore your requests. Provide the following information:
  • The version of the ROM you are using (to confirm that you have the latest release)
  • Report any customizations you have made to the ROM (themes, system apps, etc.)
  • Describe the problem clearly, including steps on how I can reproduce the issue.
  • Provide a logcat from your system taken just after the issue has occurred. To take a logcat, you enter this command from your PC: adb shell logcat -d >c:\logcat.txt. Copy and paste this log to pastebin.com, and provide the link.
  • If I ask you to re-test the issue after a data-wipe, do the following: reboot into ClockworkMod, perform a full backup, then data-wipe, reboot and retest the issue, giving a new log if necessary. You can then reboot into ClockworkMod and restore your data backup.

ROM version: cm-7-20120729-MADTEAM-u8160

Customizations to the ROM: No changes

Problem: After installing the ROM the vertical touch is inverted. So when I'm in portrait mode to open the notification menu I swipe my finger from the bottom of the screen to the top. To select menu items at the bottom of the screen and touch the soft keys I touch the very top of the screen. Horizontal touch is still correct so that if I turn the phone sideways I can select menu items that cover the entire screen but if an item is on the left (normally bottom in portrait) I have to click on the right hand side (normally top in portrait). Also the hard home button acts as a volume up/down button and toggles up and down repeatedly, whilst the volume up acts as a call button and the volume down acts as a lock button.

Here is my logcat link: http://pastebin.com/gLa3SGnA

Note: I have already tried a full wipe and re-install and have tried the update-cm-7.1.0-u8160-v0.3-signed that I downloaded from somewhere 2 months ago (i forget where) and the same problem does not occur.

Thank you.

Since I originally posted I have tested the following ROMS and they are 100% working:
update-cm-7-20120427-MADTEAM-u8160-signed
cm-7-20120625-MADTEAM-u8160
but cm-7-20120729-MADTEAM-u8160 is still having the touch issues

Thanks again

Hmm, so this download is a fake scam then, wants to install zoom downloader and a shitload of crap toolbar crap.

and from what i read here it doesnt even work.

and the arrogant author says he's not interested in anything else to do with it.

yeah, not likely.. haha. what a scam.. loser.
