Luis_Blog said...

anyone installed it in optimus boston? does it work?

Nuno Silva said...

It has a nice look, unfortunately I've sold my Boston, if not I would certanly give it a try !!

Luis_Blog said...

I tried the rom and there was an error on the 3 step. Now I cannot restart phone. I made hard reset and still nothing. Need help- thks

Tiago said...

install the original recovery by fastboot

S Moinuddin said...

Doesn't recognize my Spice Phone which is installed with Android 2.3.3 Cyanogen Build 14

Any Idea?

Sammy said...

looks great, anyone try flash using bootloader?
btw, why this rom not available in CM mirror resources? is it from the same developer?

Ynnad said...

This nb0 is not officially from cyanogenmod and not meant too be used with recovery. Actually the nb0 idea is better than using update.zip. The nb0 will rearrange and recreate all partitions according to the ROM needs. While the update.zip will usually update the boot partition and rewrite all the files in the system folder/partition. So nb0 will give a cleaner system and therefor can be used to update from any ROM.

S.line said...

This rom just work with the SUT 1.7 and turn on the boston in download mode (red + vol up + power).
Sorry my bad english.
Work fine for me ;)

Arnold said...

I will try this ROM and hoping will the get the same problem above.

Sanjay said...

No one discussing battery life of cyanogenmod anymore!

Sammy said...

@Sanjay indeed.. mostly we give up on CM battery life.
how about this one? if this rom can give 48hours standby time, i will give it a try...

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Sammy - 48hrs and cyanogen?? never...

Sammy said...

@Aevum Dicessio, well maybe i'm expecting too much, 36hours seems reasonable. with 2.2 mod rom (phantom/firetrap/bakpia/andro-id), i could get 48hours standby time (phone only, no gprs/3g/wifi).
but anyway, it's android.. who would stand leave it idle in your hands?

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Sammy - very true, cant leave it idle and that's the reason I switched from CM7 to non CM 2.2 Roms. CM7 didn't even last a day, otherwise no doubt CM has tons of features. Is there a way to transport their settings to phantom or bakpia roms, like rotatory/lens unlock, always display battery %, turn over for silence, enable 180deg rotation etc.?

disaster85 said...

IT WORKS !!! (;

tomasso said...

not so bad :-)
but, wakeup on red/green button?

Sammy said...

@tomasso you can set CM7 rom to wakeup on trackball

handroid said...

I hope that the battery consumption 2.3 better than 2.2, the CM is the god of the android. prove it

tomasso said...

Sammy: yes it's true, in cyanogenmod setting is posibility to unlock device by pressing the trackball, but not working on orange boston :-\

Ynnad said...

I have done a clean install using the above file and apply the build 15 after that. But the gps is working. Using the GPS status & toolbox, there is no fix and no GPS icon in the notification bar. Using Google Maps 5.2.1 makes my nexian journey very slow. Have to force close the application. Anybody experience the same problem?

biasakan-antri-yuk said...

how to apply nb0 from a mac OSX platform? any references?

vasile said...

any body here?
flash the boot.img from SuperAOSP2.8 to
cyanogenmod7#13.#14.... and your rom wil stay with you for 5 days in stand by(at least)

Oleg said...

@vasile what phone model did you tested this on?

Marian said...

@vasile daca esti roman te rog sa imi raspunzi cu mai multe detalii..chiar ai reusit sa scoti durata asta a bateriei?
si daca nu esti roman scrie si pe engleza
english >> have you tried flashing the boot image from Super AOSP2.8 and your baterry last so long?

Oleg said...

@marian have you managed to flash the super AOSP 2.8 because i didn't

ZAILER said...

phone z51 (zues videocon)
flashed to this ROM .. everything went well battery seems to be good too ..but problem is i now dont have that Extra drive letter (phone shown as a cd rom when connected) could someone pls tell me which partition is responsible for that drive.one which contains sync utility.thanks.

Alexandra said...

bro...5 days.. for that...i.ll give u a beer..or some palinca.tell us how did u did that...testing this rom....hope battery keep longer.

Gaurav said...

@ZAILER: That drive only appears when you have a stock ROM with a stock recovery. Changing your recovery to clockworkmod will remove that.

The good thing, though, is that the latest clockworkmod will allow you to mount/unmount sdcard to pc, as well as run adb commands. That means, even f your phone doesn't boot, you can change to the stock recovery FROM clockworkmod. Cool huh?

@tomasso: go to /data/property/ and there's a file called persist.syskeywakeup or something. Edit it and change the 0 to 1. Reboot.

Marian said...

@Oleg i didn't install the SuperAosp2.8 but i know how to flash separatly just boot.img or anything else..But what seems to be the problem? why can't you install it? If this solution (flash boot.img) indeed changes the baterry life upto 5 days i'm ready to try it out :D by now i've managed to obtain only almost 48h from firetrap jellybean..i think it's the best rom so far..
@alexandra vad ca esti romanca si te pricepi la rom-uri..cum putem lua legatura ?:P

S.line said...

My battery lasts 30~40 hours with this ROM
Not bad..

ZAILER said...

thanks gaurav :)
but now i am facing a different problem.. once in a while SD CARD removed unexpectedly error and few times format sdcard its DAMAGED like notifications coming... i have to try with a different card to make sure its not the card is faulty. but i have a ext partition on it.
anyone else getting any such problem ? :) thanks

Neelabh said...

I am using a FireTrap Twonights 2.2.1 on my Motorola XT502. I am a newbie and want to use this one. Is there a chance of losing my IMEI after flashing to this ROM. Will I get atleast 24 hrs of backup? Should I just install using SUT 1.7? Can anyone please answer my question

eazycomeneazygo said...

I guess it's a Final CM ROM in gingerbread, but i was wrong, it still Release Candidate.

Then back to sit and waiting for the FINAL/STABLE Release while relaxing and enjoying Brem.

vasile said...

toti romanii intrati pe softpedia forum-orange boston si veti vedea tot felul de posibilitati!!
my phone is orange boston....

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Neelabh - the post and the 30 comments above answers all your queries...
no chance of losing IMEI

vinh said...

@ ZAILER : it is "hiden" folder name , u can see by Root Explorer , copy it from stock rom , and restore in any rom.

Ameya said...

can some one tell me which is the best rom for xt5

eazycomeneazygo said...

Dear Ameya,

You asking the best ROM, I tell you this is the best ROM: Andro-ID v2.1 codename Brem
http://boston-mania.blogspot.com/2011/03/rom-22-andro-id-v21-codename-brem.html

Aevum Dicessio said...

Can someone flash superAOSP boot.img in this rom and re-pack it into a fresh .nbo ROM pl.

Else can someone please make this request to some developer if you know him can make it for us?

Neelabh said...

I flashed. Everything is fine but it is not recognising SD card. Should I format the SD Card? Please advise.

Neelabh said...

Neelabh said...

I formatted the SD card but still not working. It is still showing error. How do I fix it? Its is mentioned in the comments that I need to retrieve it through stock ROM. I have clockworkmod backup of the stock ROM on computer. How could I correct the SD card using data from comp. Someone please guide. Thanks in advance!

S.line said...

Your SD card is probably damaged..

Dul said...

This ROM need Class 4 or greater.

ZAILER said...

@vinh thanks i will just try unpack .nbo and replace it from stock and see how things go..
@Dul r u sure about the clas 4 sd ? mine was class two .. so is it damaged or this requirment is making problem

@Aevum Dicessio look for A688_tools inside that u get an exe to unpack .nb0 its very simple...

Now when i put somuch widgets and live wallpaper and stayed online with 2g .. and long 3 calls (3 hrs total)battery lasted for 14hrs recharge to recharge...thats seems good for me .. my phone came with 2 batteries :)

Neelabh said...

Mine is a class 4 SD card and is not damaged as its working fine in other phones

tiger said...

@vasile
I have flashed superAOSP boot.img in CM7 15#
(>fastboot boot boot.img) ;
This is a good idea for XT502,battery down slowly than cm rom. EX:7h down 20%(only phone).

vasile said...

@tiger
my battery down 6% in 8h on #14(only standby, 2G,no wifi,no gps)...I have some
problems on #15 and i return to #14.
for me work better!

Sriram said...

I have a Class 2 Sandisk SD card. No matter what combination of formatting,erasing using recovery mode, windows, ..... Even tried replacing Hidden.img in the nb0 with the one from official foxconn 2.2 rom, DID NOT fix my SD card problem (Damaged/ Unexpectedly removed). Why is it so hard to be finally have everything in one ROM ?!?! Please help ..

ZAILER said...

@sriram

i too have sd card problem.. tried with different cards still it says damaged sd .. something wrong with the ROM all cards cant go bad same time :)
wait for the fix :)

x-L!nº said...

I want to install another rom, and sut 1.7 give Phone not connected...
How to solve this problem???

zedged said...

the camera still has a problem on motorola xt502

S.line said...

@x-l!nº Start the phone in download mode (End_call + Vol_Up + Power) and use SUT 1.7
Sorry my bad english

Neelabh said...

I used an old non Class4 1GB SD Card and its working without any issue. Able to move apps too

Rohit said...

bad experience on my Spice MI300 , Hang so many times on wake up time, so many force cloced, gui is good but not stable still waiting for best rom in 2.3 range .... thanks for developing..... for me CMLeclair1.3 is best in 2.1 range..... Please suggese me a best rom in 2.3 range

cano said...

i use this rom only 5 min but im lowe with him :)) thank you Canyogen team :)

GlasOner said...

Rohit, try te SuperAOSP 2.8 by SuperTEAM (creators of SuperBler 4.2) is a ROM 2.3.3, full work on Boston and Boston variants, the battery life is 2-3 days with normal use (wifi, 2g, calls, sms, browser, etc). For me, SuperAOSP 2.8 is the best ROM for Boston.

wtfro said...

@ GlasOner
if you put de kernel from aosp to cyanogen then you have find the best rom! :)

Rohit said...

Thank GlasOner, I will try SuperAOSP 2.8, But want to share my experience with this rom (for developer)
1.Hangs on wake up specially when end of any active call.
2.Bluetooth problem (paired without passcode, showing paired but not connected), sending file failed????
3.Not able to use front mic in phone with normally 3.5mm 3 Pin jack Stereo Handsfree ( Which is a need for me and "CLMeclaire 1.3" have it)
Gui is best if above three problem will solve I want to try it again. Thanks to Developing.

zedged said...

the imei has a problem it doesnt show

Rohit said...

I flashed with SuperAOSP 2.8 but no network, i search so many times but no network again and again, is i did something wrong, i flashed it with Rom Manager. Is that right method. Please Help i need a best 2.3 Rom.

zarti said...

Flashed G1305. Smoothly,stable but need more system resource compared with 2.2. Sadly, dnt work Navitel navigation soft. Anyway, the best rom for me. Tnx!

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Rohit - you are asking your query of superAOSP in CM post ! Anyway, you need to go back to 2.1 before you update, if u flash AOSP or phantom or andro from CM7 that too through ROMManager, then for sure either you lose your IMEI or u get stuck in boot. So upgrade accordingly.

sTeAvEn said...

SD card issue not working correct

ZAILER said...

like rohit mentioned i also had this issue with gui fail to wake up / Hangs on wake up specially when end of any active call.
call wont end if we press red button instead we have to press the END on touch screen.

Sammy said...

@ZAILER i got the same error in active call, probably because i'm applying persist.key.wakeup setting. flashing build 19 now...

Rohit said...

I have now SuperAOSP 2.8, but having the same issue as this rom....

aristhu03 said...

Hello everybody..i wanna ask, i have already flashed this rom to my nexian journey. Everything is fine, except for usb tethering. When i plug my device to computer, it always ask for installing driver, it never happen when i used Rom 2.2. Is there someone has experienced that same problem?? plz hlp

Rohit said...

@aristhu03
It should not happen, it is not a problem of rom it is problem of your pc os, try to install the drivers in other pc.....

Radu said...

i installed this flash, at finish it gave me an error....something with step 3.... (after the reboot) After that, it wouldn't go in recovery, i did a master reset (red bitton, cam button and power) and it is working.

WERRY SMOOTH...thanks

Radu said...

still not entering recovery....anyone know why?

what should i do? i don't wanna change the version but i wanna wipe it....

any advice?

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Radu - if your ROM is working and only clockwork recovery is creating prob, then goto ROM Manager. There from options clear the download cache. Also goto settings and enable the Erase Recovery option. Then flash your clockwork recovery from ROM Manager. Select commtiva z71 when asked for model. Do it twice for safe hands. Reboot. You should be able to go inside now.

Radu said...

i am at the begining of android flashing ... i will let it like this. I read somewhere that if u don't have an original rom(or recovery) u can't go into recov mode....

thanks 4 answer....anyway....does enyone know other versions of GOOD Android 2.3 (but the nb0 version) ? this one is sooper ok but, today at one time when looked at it (i do it pretty often couse i like so much this rom) i found out that it is jammed. i had to remove battery to restart it.... any ideas?

THANKS

PS: if i will do whatu sat (@Aevum) i will lose warranty?

Radu said...

oh and....how do u set a mp3 as a ringtone? i can't find the option USE AS...

Élio Sequeira said...

The battery draining is huge!!! 6 / 7 hours in standby! Besides that the ROM is fantastic! Hope you fix the battery draining problem!

Radu said...

and one more thing...i saw an option where u can put the frequency of the proc higher than 600 .. if i do that...i wil risk to brick my boston? can anyone tell me pls?has anyone tried to do that?

Radu said...

any advices? sorry for the posts but...i really like this rom ...

Stormy Boston said...

HI all. I dunno where to post it, but I have a question: How to enter recovery mode in Boston? ( I ask it, because i have a problem with rom manager when i wanna flash a new rom... ) thx 4 advices...

Bence said...

OMG. This ROM will be awesome!!! BUT... the battery consumption is terrible... My GSmart G1305 Boston works for 7 hrs... and it's not too stable... BTW, THX 4 Working on it, hope U can fix those issues... pEaCe OuT. Stormy
