RCMod 3 [current: 3.0.4]
« on: June 27, 2010, 07:46:39 AM »
Note: If you're unfamiliarized with the RCMod ROMs, please read these threads: http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php?topic=675.0, http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php?topic=744.0 and http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php/topic,785.0.html

RCMod 3.0 is available, with a FroYo flavor

Update: 3.0.2.5 update available, overall updates and fixes, Compcache, stagefright.
Update: 3.0.3.2 update available, stable.
Update: 3.0.4 update available, CCR Release.


RCMod 3.0 is, like before, an upgrade (no data wipe required): you can upgrade from the previous major series (RCmod 2) without any data loss. For other ROMs (stock, RCMod 1, or others) you'll either have to Wipe your phone (from recovery), or upgrade through them all (any stock -> any RCMod 1 -> any RCMod 2 -> RCMod 3). In any case,  please do a nand backup before you attempt to upgrade!

Features

RCMod 3.x is built from the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) version 2.2 (codenamed FroYo), with the necessary changes to work on the ONE's hardware and some minor optimizations (the current base version for RCMod 3 is AOSP 2.2). You can find some highlights on that version here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-2.2-highlights.html

Since 3.0.1, all features from RCMod 2 have been ported to RCMod 3, and it is now out of the preview stage.

If you're upgrading from an older RCMod series (1 or 2), and if you have the Google Apps installed you'll have to install them again after applying the update. You'll need the FroYo version of the Apps.
If you're upgrading from RCMod 3 you do NOT need to reinstall anything after an upgrade.

Also as a result of the upgrade, the first boot will take a few minutes: in my case, it took around 90 seconds in the static boot image, plus an additional 270 seconds in the animated boot-splash. (so around 6 minutes total). That's normal, don't reboot your phone while that boot is ongoing (only if it takes more than 10 minutes, then try again).

Have fun!

Yes, that's why I'm including both. 3D Gallery has to be included for photo review (from the camera app), but I personally will keep using the normal gallery for photo browsing.

Using the attached file, do adb push qwerty.kcm.bin /system/usr/keychars to fix the keyboard symbols.
