Before I continue and start from scratch, please make sure it works and reboots OK 100%.

 

By the way I think I found the problem.  It's a long story but when I did the 10 G2 because I increase /system space I had to move the system.img offset to the end in the parameter file as for some reason it was smashing on top of boot.img.  Hmmmmm....  Maybe I just found out why I cant make a update.img properly.

 

So let me know for sure and I will cook up another ROM that I think will work this time.

Hi Guys,

 

Been following this post and i'm very interested in helping out if I can, I bought the 9g2 the other day and I was thinking about returning it as the following points have made me feel that i've bought a red herring, i would like your thoughts as now that i've seen this post i reckon it wont be long before loads of custom roms will be available.

 

My points

  • WiFi is poor, my router is less that 10 meters away from me with no obstruction
  • Youtube HD is very laggy even though the specs say it can handle HD

That's all i've came across just now, everything else seems to be working ok

 

Your thoughts?

You probably should have made a new post for those questions since this thread is about cooking and testing ROMs.

However if this thing is like the 10 G2 the WiFi sugnal gizmo does not report signal strength properly.  I have tested it and no issues with bandwidth.  So even when it is showing one bar it really is not one bar.

Youtube runs like crap in the stock browser.  Get Dolphin HD browser.  However even better is once we get this rooted and get the MArket installed, download and install youtube.apk and that works real well!

OK new ROM fresh out of the oven!

No arctools scripts in this one.  All I did was shuffle around the parameter file putting system at the end before -user (NAND).  Still using loader 2.06.  Kept changes to a minimum so we can figure this out.  Thanks you guys for testing but the good news is we now have a stock ROM so no fear of a permanent brick!

 

GOD I hope this one works this time 🙂

Please test as soon as you can... I am on pins and needles here!

OK so that explains something to me then.  I am not allocating enough space for the larger system.img and it was walking over another parition.  This may explain why I cant make a update.img that works!

Now I have some figuring to do as the math for the paramter file is screwy and makes no sense.  Time to consult with some folks.

I would really like to make a update.img that works so everyone does not have to use a flash tool.

 

You folks enjoy the new ROM.  I will be doing a 1.1 version with Arctools support and Market.  As you may read in my ROM for the 7 G2 there are still issues with ID's and stuff keeping the Market form working properly.  Let me know if the 9 G2 has the same issues.

It won't work unless It has been written specifically for your device
All the drivers for the hardware would have to have
Been written for that specific tablet. Although the
Processor is the same that does not mean
That anything else would be. If only it was that easy
