How do I install this?

  1. Download the .zip & copy to phone or sdcard (make sure 4g or wifi is enabled if dl'd from phone).
  2. Zip can be installed from either internal or external sd in CWM (Which ever you copied it too!)
  4. DO A FACTORY RESET!!! - this will wipe data & cache!
  5. Go to install zip from sdcard
  6. Choose zip from sdcard
  7. Select cm-10-xxxxxxxxxx-UNOFFICIAL-l0.zip
  8. Confirm
  9. Repeat Steps 5 -8 for gapps
  10. Reboot


NOTE for the ILLITERATE/LAZY: DO NOT INSTALL the LTE RECOVERY WITH CM10!!! IT HAS BEEN SAID TO BRICK YOUR DEVICE!!!! A 2nd-init recovery is included already (subject to be removed) in CM10.

Started a thread for my builds to ease tracking of issues that need to be fixed. ;)
#2 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
I love you. Let's run off together. :D
#3 MrGlowy, Aug 4, 2013
Ive been on BobZ build and got a few things working. My biggest nemesis has been the ring vibration is this working here? I can deal with camera issues..
#4 Swainsmith82, Aug 4, 2013
Does this include Loki?
#5 alfick3, Aug 4, 2013
I believe it was your gps fix you posted I added in, and the values for call volume you or someone posted in that thread too I added.

Wasnt aware of vibration issues, but see Bob pushed a fix for it, so will check that out. ;)
#6 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
nope not yet, but any loki'd boot.img for the motion should work fine. I also left the 2nd-init boot to recovery patch in.
#7 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
Thanks a bunch, I really need vibrate for my job and night time while my son is asleep. Glad I could do something to be apart of your work! Thanks for everything..
#8 Swainsmith82, Aug 4, 2013
Is front facing video working? Thanks for all the work man. Glad we have people like you working on this phone :thumbup::D

I've been having that problem too but there have been many people who said vibration worked for them... Maybe it's an issue based on what firmware/rom you had before flashing or something... idk :p
I think the vibration is probably one of the few things that keep me from using cm10 on this phone - with the amount of texts I get plus how I don't really like my phone making noises while in lectures while still knowing someone texted me (computer science classes can sometimes be boring... :\ ) makes it so no vibration is a big deal to me.

I wonder if what swain did with the gps fix - (at least I assume) copying the original gps.default.so in our system/lib/hw from stock rom into cm could be changed to fix sensors, camera and vibration...
I mean on the system/lib/hw folder there's a camera.msm8960.so that maybe if we copy over it might fix the tint? :eek:
and I am not sure which of the .so's might have to do something with the vibration... my only guesses from the /hw library is hwcomposer or sensors.msm8960...

I don't know if that'd work at all - I assume that this folder is android's API which controls how hardware should interact and what can you do with it, etc. but I might be completely wrong...

I'm just throwing ideas :p

Thanks for all the help PG.

new zip uploaded with BobZhome's vibration fixed added.
#12 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
Om(pg) thank you!
#13 Swainsmith82, Aug 4, 2013
Or I guess that works too... I'll try this right meow when people *cough*Megan*cough* stop using my phone :p


I have a question - if we flash this rom and then flash the rom-less paranoid android zip or paacman would it still have the vibration/volume/gps fixes or would we have to find the separate fixes for them and re-apply them?
#14 Friendly Llama, Aug 4, 2013
I've looked into that and using most stock ics libs aren't going to work unless they're lg related (drm and divx) and written into the framework (I believe). The first thing I tried was the stock gps default and it didn't work. The stock conf does because it's an assisted configuration for gps...
#15 Swainsmith82, Aug 4, 2013
All ports really do is change a few things in the framework and system ui mostly. But we really shouldn't clog up this thread with questions about ports.. You should ask johnny about his ports..
#16 Swainsmith82, Aug 4, 2013
vibration fixes are in system/xbin/cm10.tar (the ramdisk 2nd-init loads). The call volume fixes are in the build.prop. Far as other ROMs etc, no clue, all depends on what all their creators have in em. ;)
#17 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
Alright :p That's good to know.

If you don't mind divulging though - where did you get the proper gps file? maybe we could get more parts from that phone's/rom system libraries?

edit: I just checked for Paranoid android and it flashes a different build.prop so the call volume fixes will probably not be the same unless I add them manually

as for the xbin, it doesn't flash anything to xbin so I think if we(I) flashed this rom as a base and then paranoid android I might end up with working vibration but maybe lower call volume.

I just wonder if maybe deleting build.prop from the flashable zip might make it so paranoid android doesn't boot... it's unlikely but still probable since I don't know exactly what routines android goes through when booting :p
But if we don't really need to build.prop in the zip then I think that would be a safe bet that it would work.

Thanks a lot, again - PG for clearing things out for me
#18 Friendly Llama, Aug 4, 2013
it would be easier just to add the call volume edits to the buildprop after flashing. because my ports do contain a buildprop with specific entries for the port. everything else should work fine. ;)
all your doing is changing two numbers.
#19 johnnyl1111, Aug 4, 2013
Alright, will do :p

I think I'll go to bob'z thread and look for the edits needed for the volume. I think it had something to do with changing the volume steps but I don't know.

or if PG can post what the changes he made for the latest edit are it'd be highly appreciated in case someone wants to try the same thing.;)
#20 Friendly Llama, Aug 4, 2013
I added Bob's cm10.tar to my device repo for the vibration fix and edit the the build.prop with the following for call volume:
Code (Text):
  1. ro.config.vc_call_vol_steps=20
  2. ro.config.vc_call_vol_default=15
#21 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
Thanks a lot :p

very much appreciated!

Now just for the record, mms is supposed to be working as is GPS, backlight, vibration etc.?

the only things not working are front face video and 1080p video?

I can live with that no problem :3

Thanks a lot PG and everyone else... again c;
#22 Friendly Llama, Aug 4, 2013
So the in call volume is confirmed louder now?
#23 Android?What!?, Aug 4, 2013
it all needs tested and confirmed. ;)
#24 PlayfulGod, Aug 4, 2013
flashed it, going to use it normally and see what bugs i can spot :p
