CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) Alpha 4.1 for Samsung Galaxy W GT-I8150

What's working:
Audio
Receiving and making calls
GPS
Compass
Proximity sensor
Wifi
Bluetooth
USB mass storage
HW accelerated gui
HW accelerated video
Camera
Torch
Wifi/USB tethering

Not working:
The 2.6 kernel doesn't have vsync required for full project butter experience. The 3.0 kernel version has this though.
Camera is not working on the 3.0 kernel version.

Annoyances:
Artifacts in preview for panorama shots
Green color when taking pictures (saved picture is ok though)
USB tethering must be activated twice if it's the first boot
The fix for HSDPA causes an issue with APN's in Jelly Bean if you use SIM pin lock. To workaround that turn on and off airplane mode after entering pin code.

WARNING: Many apps will Force Close crash if you restore data from a previous ROM.

Install
  1. Use CWM5 or CWM6.
    • Warning: Only use this recovery to flash CM10. Otherwise, you risk bricking your phone!
  2. Wipe data and cache.
  3. Flash update*.zip.
  4. Flash gapps*.zip. You must flash gapps after every upgrade to CM10 since /system is formatted, wiping your previous add-ons.
  5. Reboot phone.
  6. After you setup your Google account, reinstall the three apps from Market in order to restore most of your apps, call log and SMS history.
  7. Warning: Do not restore backup data of system apps!
    • If you restore a bad backup with cached settings in telephony.db in data/data/com.*.*.telephony it can break MMS.
    • It seems that restoring backups can also break Calendar sync.
Upgrades
Upgrades from previous versions of CM10 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between CM10 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.

    1. I don't think you can use the SD card for the memories.

    2. I mean for system memory.But you can swap external and internal memories-how to above.

      Delete
    3. what do you mean convert to system memory. you mean swap?
      you can manually create swap following procedure below:
      (do this only if you understand it okey? and don't make any typing error coz it could result damage to your phone if not done correctly.)

      ---- SAMSUNG GALAXY (W) WONDER GT-I8150 ONLY ------

      1) open terminal emulator

      2) get superuser access:

      # su

      3)create a swap file in you sdcard. this will create a swap file in your sdcard swap.img 256mb. you can change the size in count:

      # dd if=/dev/zero of=/external_sd/swap.img bs=1M count=256

      4) activate swap:

      # mkswap /external_sd/swap.img
      # swapon /external_sd/swap.img

      5) check if swap is activated:

      # free

      you should see figures following the swap line (not zeros)

  48. Still need a little bit of work... I installed kernel 3.0 but did not tried the 2.9. It does not let me create a new APN even after using the workaround and the camera did not worked.

  49. what is the forecast release of alpha 4?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey really, really nice work !!
    No pressure at all -but can you estimate a date, a new update will be released? I love this mod so far, but no working camera and the extreme battery drainage are hard to deal with.
    As i said, no pressure - but if you say you'll need another month or more, i would cover the time till then with another mod - maybe cm 9.
