flashed to this rom, but ecounter screen rotation problem. repeatedly flash .zip file but still won't fix. any idea?

godend said...

how to flash cm 7-EA-v4 zip and nbo,pls step by step..someone can teach

Naren said...

Why would anyone want to try this silly looking ROM? You'd better try the original CM7 and fix the screen rotation issue.

Aevum Dicessio said...

Please do a sanity check before posting Its CyanogenMod-7_EAv4 ChangeLog not CyanogenMod-7_EAv3

@Naren - I prefer this ROM over original CM7 for two reasons
1. Does not have random system restarts.
2. Does not have SD card unexpectedly removed notification

@godend
.zip is for update from old version of this ROM through clockwork recovery
.nbo flashing is through SUTLR tool.
Steps you can find in net, CM7 site, old posts on this blog

@Ralph - Same problem here, unable to fix the screen rotation for EAV4, so temporarily only portrait. Maybe clean .nb0 flash will fix the problem, I'll check tonight and let you all know tomorrow.

hicarlwere said...

what about the battery consumption?
works on stock phones?
Have some one tested it on spice Mi300?
thanks

NWE said...

My phone's screen rotation not work since build 124,Did someone have idea why it happened?

surya said...

my phone is stuck in airplane mode. reflashed stock rom. still no recourse. any help pls.

royals said...

again the IMEI problem. I was using 2.3.3 and does'nt have any problem but after finished this rom my phone lost imei:-(

Aevum Dicessio said...

@royals - i hope you didnt flash EAv4 or CM7 nightly.. if so then no IMEI.. u have to flash the .nbo in such case

@hicarlwere- Battery consumption is good in MI 300, lasts a day with calls and 2G always on

royals said...

@Aevum Dciessio: I flashed with CyanogenMod-7_EAv4 ZIP and i can not use .nb0 because my phone doesnt recognize the usb now.

lovabllife2006 said...

@NWE - you still haven't found the solution from the last post? here it is http://www.ubiquitense.com/technology/plausible-solution-to-the-cm7-nightlies-screen-orientation-issue-upside-down-landscape/3110/

S.line said...

Turn on the phone download mode to use with SUT (End_call + Vol_Up + Power).
To fix the screen rotation try format boot via recovery and reflash the zip.

royals said...

@S.line: if I use download mode usb will be recognized by phone?

Ralph said...

@S.line so your screen rotation is ok?

lovabllife2006 said...

@Ralph and @NWE - this is what you guys need - www.ubiquitense.com/technology/plausible-solution-to-the-cm7-nightlies-screen-orientation-issue-upside-down-landscape/3110/ to fix the screen rotation issue.

Ralph said...

@lovabllife2006 have you actually tried that? coz i just spend my whole evening reinstall the zip but still wouldn't fix anything. :(

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Ralph that link wont work for EAV4.. its only for the current CM7 nightlies

João Campos said...

That link will probably work if you install a CM7 nightly and, after fixing the issue, installing EAV4.

Aevum Dicessio said...

nope..I tested it but the nb0 installation also has the screen reversed. Still I'll be sticking with this ROM as I never use landscape.

Tarun Kumar Singh said...

@royals
ur phone is not recognized because of custom recovery.
either flash the android recovery using fastboot or flash the rom in download mode

S.line said...

My rotation screen is fine with this one.

@Ralph - if you're such a smart ass mother fucker, why don't you share how you fixed the problem?

Barking at someone trying to help you - proves for sure that you're the son of a whore hahaha!

Albuquerque said...

guys ive got one question...

ive got the Cm7 2.3.5 nigthly build 161.

ive used the fix that @lovebllife2006 sugested and thank got that worked, screen rotation inverted was very anoing.. if i use this build .nbo i dont have install nothing else?

by the way sorry for my english :)

thanks for the help :)

Nakul said...

I wish there was a 'SuperLike' button for lovabllife2006's previous comment! :D

royals said...

@Tarun Kumar Singh: you are right it was custom rom before. if i turn my phone fastboot how can i flash the anroid recovery without using my usb? and where can i find original android rom for my orange boston/commitiva z71 and the steps, how can i do the flashing in download mod?
thanks for your help.

Ralph said...

@lovabllife2006 im sorry if you feel offended :(. i just want to point out that repeatedly flash the .zip doesn't make any difference. Did you actually ever tried that method? If you do and it works i'd say thank you.

Anyway, to fix the screen, all you have to do is to install this kernel calibration fix thru recovery mode [url]http://www.filefactory.com/file/cdec840/n/kernel-fix-kalibrasi.zip[/url]
if the screen not responsive after the kernel installation, just reinstall superaosp's kernel fix, that's all.

lovabllife2006 said...

@Ralph - I tried that method, that's why recommended.

Anyways, we're friends now :D *handshake*

thanks for the tut it works like a charm....

Zetton said...

Thanks Ralph

EC#20 said...

Thank

Cipirix said...

how come i can't find it on cyanogen page

Leong CM said...

looks better than original Cyanogen

Aevum Dicessio said...

love the screenshot option in the power menu :D

normansiddek said...

you change the screen orientation..i bet you 'll have another annoying problem...,no problem to give it a shot..its a gingerbread..hehehe

Ralph said...

@normansiddek so what do you reckon?

Kiepphongtran said...

Please port MIUI for Z71

Tiago said...

I have a prob...
superaosp's kernel fix works like a charm but after a wille everything comes back to normal... (kalibration is bad again...)

can some one help me? thank you for your time

MiteshPC said...

superaosp kernel is the only thing that bring sback the orientation. I am not sure if Z71 variants are considered to be active by developers. It's been long since this problem has not been resolved. Maybe it's too difficult to resolve either.

Tiago said...

so everytime the kalibration is bad I need to settup again?

Lawliet said...

Why recovery ver.4.0.0.8 can't restone backup?
And ROM Manager suppurt ver.4.0.0.8 not yet?

yasen1965 said...

Thank you BOBJOAN.I made it your way and it's working on Orange Boston(Z71 variants).

vasile said...

@All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you are tired to try all unfinished this roms!
You can put this one:
http://www35.zippyshare.com/v/40604787/file.html
is nb0 files and work after any rom you have

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Vasile - that is a 2.2 ROM i believe.. in that case why u are suggesting Bakpia over Phantom? Because of dev still working on Bakpia or features are more than phantom?

vasile said...

how I write in changelong is:
Bakpia 2.2.3 system +kernel(boot.img) Twonights
not phantom
I suggest to try because is good not because is bakpia or phantom or anithing else!
if radithtux still work on Bakpia Im glad because is a good rom but not enough!
kernel of Twonights run on 600mhz adn is more stabil and faster than original kernel made by PJMOD on 864mhz
I put 2 good pieces in one to make better
ps. I dont use phantom! Anyone use phantom can compare with this one and tell wich is better!!!

Vishal said...

How can I backup and restore previously installed apps easily? I dont want to keep on installing apps each time I try different ROM.

Thanks in advance.

Aevum Dicessio said...

Aevum Dicessio said...

@Vasile - cool.. I'll try it, sounds interesting. Someone in androidpt also commented the same thing and is using this combination.
You made the file yourself or u are sharing the link from some blog? And did u ever happen to try bakpia + phantom kernel? Am not sure if both uses the TJ Style kernel.
Damn.. why did such gud devs didnt kick off 2.3 Androids

vasile said...

I am vaserbanix from androidpt!
I test this combination for few days and now putit here for all!
yes I modified the file but not to much!only battery icon!and few app's
tryed with phantom kernel but in my opinion is forced to much and eat the battery faster than twonights kernel!

wtfro said...

@vasile folosesc de ceva timp super AOSP AW 2.3.4 care este aproape ok, este versiunea asta de 2.2 mai fluida, mai rapida si tine mai bine bateria?

Aevum Dicessio said...

Installing Bakpia Twonights.. A new G1305 boot screen for my XT5 :) .. will let you all know as i go ahead :)

vasile said...

@wtfro
bateria tine incomparabil mai mult ca la aosp aw
mai rapid nu este
-quadrant 920-950
-neocore 34.5-35fps
fluiditatea este bunicica!nu am mai folosit de mult aospaw si nu mai stiu exact parametri
dar cmuril au stat bine mereu la capitolul asta

wtfro said...

@vasile O să fac o probă.

Vishal said...

@ Aevum Dicessio - I too have flashed my phone with Bakpia Twonights however I see the version as 2.2.2. Also I can see my old apps. I got an option to select ADW (one I installed) as well as sense UI launcher option. The one I had earlier was Phantom Sky Rev 1. Did you get it flash in clean way? I used nb0.

Aaron said...

@vasile

Is Bapkia Twonights as stable and lag-free as phantom?
What about the battery life? 2 days?

thanks

vasile said...

in my opinion firetrapTwonights it was much better then phantom but firetrap stop to work on it!
i use twonights kernel because is more stabil end faster then original made by TJ-STYLE(my mistake on earlier post)
wait for a feedback from someone hoo used phantom and now try Bakpia-Twonights

Srinivasan said...

Many thanks.Zip file This fixed my wifi disconnect problem.
Do I need to install any new gapps zip and or fix battery zip also?

vasile said...

@vishal
if you have an old partition from previous rom,
ned to format it from recovery because old apps wil not work
make an factoryreset!
give a feedback please? thanks

Aevum Dicessio said...

Battery life is better than phantom and EAv4 no doubt. But I am facing lags in regular phone usage, not sure if its my configuration.
SD-Ext: 512MB
Swap: 32MB

do we need swap in Android?
@Vasile - any suggestion for overcoming the lag?

vasile said...

@Aevum
1solution is to instal from market "spare parts"
and modified sped of "window animation" and "Tranzition animation" from normal to fast
and lag disapear!

cipi said...

Or "Settings/Display/Animation" and set "No animation".

me_sharief said...

I have tested bakpia 2.2.3 update.. very good rom everything is awsome.. but only one problem I faced that phone never vibrates on any mode. so I removed it

Vishal said...

@vasile - Yes it worked fine after wiping everything via recovery. Strange.. Bapkia does not have Gallery. Am I missing something?

@All - Tried EAv4 however could not get over screen rotation issue. Tried to install it few times as mentioned in some of the posts but no luck.. flashed to Bapkia twonights.

Vishal said...

@me_sharief - The android version says 2.2.2 though the ROM says 2.2.3. Do you see the same?

vasile said...

@me-sharief
jus tested tha vibration and it work very well!
porhaps you have a problem with yor phone
@cipi
thanks for help!
ce mai faci ca nu team vazut de 2 zile pe forum?

vasile said...

sorry for double post!
@vishal
did you red the changelog?
anyway instal "Quick pictures" from market!
it work better then Gallery

Aevum Dicessio said...

@vishal - dont confuse. Android version is 2.2.2 and 2.2.3 is the version that the dev gave to his ROM. tomorrow another ten updates it may remain Android 2.2.2 but rom version might become 2.2.13 something like that... Hope I cleared some air :)

cipi said...

@vasile Sunt bine! Vad ca ai scos ROMul la export ;)

disk24 said...

@vasile
i tested your rom in spice mi-300

my observations are:
1. gallery not working (replace by quickpic solves the problem)
2. wont pass boot logo if you dont partition the sd card first. only after partition the sd card was able to boot.
3. on my first boot, ringtones are present. on my next boot ONLY default ringtone is present. i just reboot to solve this problem.
4. 90% battery remaining after 6 hours standby
5. everything else working properly.

i hope you can create a separate section for this rom so that further testing results will exclusively posted.

Is their any fix for yhe Wifi Problem, I'm always rebooting the android so that I can have Wifi :(

First, thanks for the good tut, but After i flashed the Kernel fix the Touchscreen was not responsible.so i reinstalled superaosop 8.6 and now the Touchscreen is responsible but the Rotation Problem US there ..pls help mehr
Orange Boston

Vishal said...

@Aevum Dicessio - Thanks. Yes that does help. I confused 2.2.3 with 2.3

@djolivier - So the rotation problem is not fixed right?

S.line said...

The sensor G is fixed!
Install the original kernel (2.6.35.13) and after install the superaosp kernel and is all fixed!

djolivier said...

@Vishal; no, it isn't

Ralph said...

@djolivier you need to reboot after each installation. I tried it in one go and does not work. I tried by installing one and reboot once, then install another one. it works. note that for the aosp kernel part you'll need the CML#1 and the FIX.zip, which was CML#6.

http://www.cherrymobile.com.ph/site/downloads/android-2-2-1-update-for-nova.html

Android 2.2.1 Update for CommtivaZ71, Mi300. this is the best rom i used and No reboot, good battery back up, good speed, cell broadcast message, UI is awesome.

godend said...

no, i not think so..nova rom 2.2 performance bad n lag.just used 2 days i flashed to sky1,now i recon this 2.3.5 amazing rom

weboskilla said...

I already installed the Super and the Fix with CML@6 but my wifi does not work in my XT502. I also deleted the wpa_supplicant from data\misc\wifi.... I need help! Thanks!

vinod said...

Hi godend , can you give me a more details about Sky1

Vishal said...

@godend - Phantom Sky Rev 1 is the best ROM i have used so far in terms of stability. Battery life is still not great as compared to SuperAOSP. Did you face rotation issue for this ROM?

@All - Can I flash superAOSP kernel over Phantom Sky rev1?

godend said...

o, i think superAOSP for cm7 only,not suitable for sky 1..now i used rom 2.3.5 about few days no more problems, rotation was fix,speed or wifi are good,better than sky1..

godend said...

vishal..b4 u flashed sky1.u better restore to official rom 2.1,otherwise ,the rotation maybe not works,

Vishal said...

@godend - I never had any issues with Sky rev1. Are you suggesting to go back to stock ROM (2.1) before flashing CyanogenMod-7_EAv4 NB0 to fix rotation problem? Is everything working fine for you?

vinod said...

@godend - confirm me about changing ROM (2.2) to CyanogenMod-7_EAv4 so that i can flash my mi300.

vinod said...

CyanogenMod-7_EAv4 - rotation problem and no battery back up i am planing to back to nova rom 2.2

Vishal said...

@ Vinod: Any issues with Nova ROM. Just flashed to Phantom Sky Rev1. Dont mind testing if the ROM is stable and battery life is good. 3G sucks lot of battery. Anything to make battery life better?

vinod said...

@Vishal
Nova ROM 2.2 i am not find any issue
Best futures are
1. Best Battery life.
2. Good UI.
3. Good Performance.
4. No rotation problem.

sandeep said...

not able to go back to stock rom 2.1 for motorola xt502 by using backup taken stuck on motorola logo on boot and facing screen rotation problem with 2.2 and 2.3................help needed

António Fernando Santos said...

The wifi problem sucks, I'm full of it, im changing back :(

vinod said...

@sandeep - try to wipe cache and wipe temporary date reboot and try to install ROM 2.2.

@António Fernando Santos - which ROM your having this problem and Changing back which ROM?.

sandeep said...

@vinod i have wiped cache data and every thing screen problem is coming every time even though i have tried the latest cm7 and i cannot go to stock rom from the backup taken as it stucks at moto logo after completion of the restore

sandeep said...

@vinod where did u get nova rom

vinod said...

@sandeep
you can download from here:
Use SUT LR to update
http://www.cherrymobile.com.ph/site/downloads/android-2-2-1-update-for-nova.html

Vishal said...

@Vinod - Flashed with Nova ROM. Working good so far and looks similar to Phantom sky rev1.

@Sandeep - Download the zip file and extract. It is installable. Install the setup which SUT LR. Put your phone to "download mode" (call end + volume UP + Power for moto xt502) and follow the same procedure of installing .nb0 file. The instructions given by program is not applicable for moto xt5. Thats all. You may want to wide data before installing by going into recovery or can do that with the installation program.

@ All - I have installed CM7.1.x version on my wife's LG optimus one. The version works like charm. Speed has improved tremendously and stable (quadrant score 1000+). No issues with Rotation either. Why CM Z71 variant has these issue? Is there any stable 2.3 version?

cipi said...

I'm using rare CM but I think RC1 (ver 2.3.4) is good enough with CML kernel!

normansiddek said...

try firetraplollipop2 2.2.2..better then nova 2.2.1,i always turn back to this one, here is the link http://free-mobile-messenger.com/2011/03/28/firetrap-lollipop-2-2-2/

normansiddek said...

have to wait for the more stable 2.3(gingerbread)..anyway,i do solute the developer's effort..thanx jodes..we will waiting for your next updated 2.3

J. M. Puñal said...

My rotation is inverted in landscape mode, any solution ?

But the rest of rom is perfect, battery duration, very stable, 3d ok, ....

djolivier said...

Ralph said: note that for the aosp kernel part you'll need the CML#1 and the FIX.zip, which was CML#6.

what does he mean? What do I have to do?
Sorry for my bad English.

Ralph said...

@djolivier

Anyone who has problems with speed sensor do the following:

1 - download these 2 files and put them on SD card
www.filefactory.com/file/cdec840/n/kernel-fix-kalibrasi.zip
www.wuala.com / c.martinez.lozano / Boston / FIX.zip
2 - start in recovery mode and install the kernel-fix-kalibrasi.zip
3 - reboot
4 - start in recovery mode and install FIX.zip
5 - restart the system and the problem is solved!

Thanks to edgar86 from AndroidPT

djolivier said...

I did it. But the rotation problem is still there...

tekumaYAKUN a.k.a takaFUMY said...

hye ralph,

Hi Friends,

I have a videocon zeus phone/commtiva z51 a z71 variant. The difference in this phone is that it does not have trackball in the middle to make any selection. I have somehow been able to install firestrap 2.2.1 on the phone and want to upgrade to gingerbread 2.3. I need following help in the recovery mode which button should I press to make a selection as the trackball is not there. Stuck at this.

Aevum Dicessio said...

@rex022 - That's pretty simple. Even trackballs may stop working due to some damage. In cases like these and yours...

Vol+/- ---> scroll up/down
Camera button ---> select

Enjoy !

abun said...

or you can use call button to make a selection

Balakumar said...

I am not an expert, i flash the nb0 file to my motorola XT5, problem in Screen Rotation, When i turn the phone the screen rotate in the opposite direction, i.e the screen is upside down how to fix it.

Aevum Dicessio said...

That's a joke!! lol.. Please scroll this page above

Ralph said...

@tekumaYAKUN a.k.a takaFUMY urs probably incomplete file. try to redownload the files again

@Balakumar read previous threads.

weboskilla said...

I have only 1 BIG PROBLEM, always the same problem since I have the z71: WIFI STOPS WORKING! Even with this new ROM and kernel updates. When turning on WIFI it says that "sorry... com.android.settings... is running and not responding... something like this. Close or wait" PLEASE HELP!!! I am thinking to buy an HTC only because of this. When I install the ROM it works ok but suddendly after some days it does not. I already try wpa_supp delete and uninstalling apps.

Balakumar said...

Hey guys i have try it and update the two files as Ralph said. But the issue continues.

cipi said...

With ROM 2.2 stock or custom WiFi works the best!

Balakumar said...

Thanks guys Just install www.filefactory.com/file/cdec840/n/kernel-fix-kalibrasi.zip

file alone the screen orientation is fixed.
after installing FIX.zip the screen has the problem.
