may i know for step 6 - [use "install from zip...." option from recovery to update the rom, gapps and camera], do i have to install them separately or can i merge them into one update.zip file and install them at one go?

thanks in advance =)

Great sharing, thanks! !
I have these steps applied on my Nexian Jorney. Originally it comes with android 1.6.
After upgrading to froyo the gps is now very unreliable. It can lock, but slower than the original. Worse, it disconnects every few kilometer albeit able to reconnect/lock again in seconds. Originally using 1.6, the gps was flawless. I did use it for travelling about 350km. Both city and outer city, it almost never disconnected. Give me the same sense as using a real in-car navigation system. I am currently using NDrive for Android.
Is it only me or others also have the same problem with gps using this firmware ?

GPS is not that stable on all CM builds, if u really depend on GPS stay on stock

Bernd said...

Does the camera patch also fixes the autofocus problem on orange boston with stock 2.1?

rdw said...

@ginjamaka: thank you very much for the confirmation. Really appreciate it.
@Bernd: I am using Nexian Journey, another brand of the same thing. Assuming it is the same hardware, I can only see that in 1.6 the focus frame is as big as the viewfinder, while in the firmware in this article (incl. cam patch) the focus frame is now rather small as in other normal autofocus camera. The problem is they produce the same result: seemingly cannot do the focusing. Trying to shoot a name card, and the result is as blur as in 1.6.

ginjamaka said...

The phones camera hardware doesn't have auto focus, it looks like it has because of the double press camera button, but in reality it doesn't even have the auto focus feature.
