I try. I just do what I enjoy. It is always nice when what you enjoy is also appreciated
#5 EagerestWolf, Jan 20, 2014
I thought this wasn't gonna happen. since this phone isn't really that popular is cwm safe to install what doesn't work?
#6 androidz305, Jan 20, 2014
Clockworkmod is completely safe to install. I have it on my phone, which is my daily driver. At this time, you cannot install ROMS from the internal SD Card or HWUserData partition, and it has a weird screen jumping issue, although it works fine.

@a305: It sounds like it will work the same as the Premia CWM. May not be perfect but... Wiping partitions/dalvik, making/restoring backup images are all that is needed to pave the way for flashing custom ROMs! I almost s--- myself when I came home saw this thread here today :D Thanks wolf!!

Lol I know I checked this forum daily to see development was being made on this phone. I wish there was a way I can help but I don't know much about ROM development.
#9 androidz305, Jan 20, 2014
And suddenly you see not only recovery but also a ROM in progress.
#10 EagerestWolf, Jan 21, 2014
As for your question. There is nothing you need to do to help. Having multiple people on a project only makes it more confusing.
#11 EagerestWolf, Jan 21, 2014
check the other thread about diff you made.

posted it all

Forgive me, you know I'm n00b.

Is this far enough along to make a ROM backup?
I don't care YET about loading mods through zip files, I like manual mode. Heh.

Think I'll be reinstalling my laptop today... Ubuntu 13 and 7 64bit. Sounds like Linux would be a more consistent environment... agree?
#13 DeadDude, Jan 22, 2014
Without a doubt.
#14 EagerestWolf, Jan 22, 2014
As for being far enough along for ROM I cannot even get it to install yet
#15 EagerestWolf, Jan 22, 2014
Use this flag in
Code (Text):
  2. USE_SET_METADATA := false
and then apply this manually:

then compile again. it should flash completely after removing props (if that issue occurs also)

Thank you guys can't wait for the final product.
#17 androidz305, Jan 24, 2014
So yeah, I've had this one under wraps for a while because I don't want a billion inbox messages about it, but I gave up on CyanogenMod 10.1 a while ago, I have been working on 11.0 cause I like KitKat better than Jellybean. Bear in mind, this is a very slow ROM to develop. I have no .manufacturer support for KitKat at all, so now I am pretty much Huawei approaching a blank slate, except they have an entire team of programmers. I am working solo.

How can I change my softkeys to ics blue thanks?
#19 androidz305, Jan 31, 2014
I am not certain you can. Those are hard-coded white
#20 EagerestWolf, Jan 31, 2014
you can mod framework-res.apk to do so.
if anyone wants me to do this, upload your framework-res.apk somewhere and give me the link so i can download and make changes
#21 rbheromax, Feb 1, 2014
I don't think I understand what soft keys are...

Aren't them the three buttons built in? Back, Home, Settings?
I didn't think they were colorable?

Or did they activate the _navigation bar_?
#22 DeadDude, Feb 1, 2014
i think he means the soft keys as in the nexus like keys that are "on-screen"

if not enabled by can add this line either /system/build.prop or /data/local.prop to enable soft keys

Code (Text):
  2. qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
and then reboot
#23 rbheromax, Feb 1, 2014

I've been playing around with Xposed... pretty slick what is possible.
#24 DeadDude, Feb 1, 2014
I meant the three buttons at the already there not the onscreen buttons. Thanks for for the help.
