infact Finless that not so pretty finless boot image that cannot be changed on your rom - just for this reason i will not use it - no offence i think your work is probably the best but I am picky in what I will allow also

 

Morko - take your time on this rom or maybe you will look into doing something with ICS once it is release for rock2918 g9 ūüôā either way I hope you will continue to try to improve this for 10 G2

 

My boot image can be changed easily IF YOU KNOW what your doing....  This weeds out the real ROM cookers from the one's that are simply trying to use Market tools.  BY THE WAY....  None of the ROM tool box stuff out there will even change the STOCK boot image!  boot.img is not like any other ROMs out there so keep complaining until you know what your doing!

Having looked at Morka's work, he can only plug in so many .ko files before he has to MOD the kernal.  With no sources...  it will be increasingly difficult to get a good working ROM.  Morka has done a lot of fantastic work here but he is being constrained by limitation of not having kernel source!

So if everyone calls up Archos/Arnova and say RELEASE the source (which they are suppose to do) then I do not see much better other than "hack" ROMs like this.

 

Morka, your TEST3 ROM was the most stable for me.  Just letting you know.

real ROM cookers?? I'm just trying to put decent rom on my familys 10 G2 - I just made a statement that I will not put your one, on, due to your not so pretty custom boot image (not the bootanimation.zip which i can replace easily) If I was complaining I would ask you to change it, instead I stated why I won't put it on. I registered here just as finless 1.3 v kastys hoohaaa. And I can see you have been burnt a little - I'm just a user who is trying to find a decent rom to stick on my 10G2. I didn't realise we all had to become experts in the field, gain recognition, just to remove a custom image at boot.

Seems like you are now making roms to out-do other roms that said from my short time here I CAN TELL YOU HAVE MADE SOME GREAT PROGRESS AND ARE AT THE FORFRONT OF THE DEVELOPMENT on the Arnova G2 devices.Your work appears to be fantastic

Perhaps I'm wrong but I can tell things have gone hostile on here due to you obviously feeling aggrieved at the way kasty 'used' your work. Nowt to do with me guv. I just dont like over customisation/tags on roms/boots is all. No offence meant geeza

Propprop, my sentiments exactly.  The boot screen on Finless' ROM looks like a tacky billboard.  It has no fewer than 6 plugs.  It's certainly Finless choice to do whatever he wants with his firmware, but it's bad form and just not done with ROMs.  Check out pretty much any other ROM on any other platform and you just won't see that.

 

For instance, NilsP, one of the recognized developers on XDA, has a custom animation that has Andy the Android waiving and it simply says "Nils Business GingerSense."  Cyanogen doesn't self-promote in its splash screens or boot animations.  Neither do Virus, Joel, or any of the other recognized developers in the platform.

 

It's just bad form.  The kudos belong in the build.prop.  If Finless wants to put a "Finless 1.4" logo on the splash screen, that's totally cool, but this splash screen is just antithetical to what is typically done in the Android community.  As far as the rest of the functionality of his ROM, it's great, and it's what I run on my 10 G2.  His work is genuinely appreciated, there's just this one annoyance.  And, frankly, if everybody did what he did with his splash screen, I wouldn't dare mention it.  It's just that having seen literally dozens of ROMs for many MANY other devices, this is the only one where I see this kind of thing.

 

And this has absolutely nothing to do with whatever differences Finless and admin here have.

Sorry you guys don't like my bootscreen.  It's actually Damo's work and I like it.  But if this is your only hang up to having a much better rom, so be it.  I am doing something a little different than everyone else otherwise I would be just like everyone else!  I am not.  So again if a stupid boot screen gets you guys all huffy then don't use my ROM I really don't care!   Again if it upsets you that much, learn to remove it.

Seems to me (a self confessed muggle) that you and propprop are trying to piss off a brilliant rom developer over a boot screen!?? Good job am so stupid cause if I improved a tablet like ours as he did then my boot screen would have my beautiful face all over it. Amazing.

Sorry for any of you guys that dont like the boot screens that I do for Bob, most like it and some dont, everybody has there own taste and I appreciate that.

 

I think that some users need to grow up a bit though making statements like this though

 

Propprop, my sentiments exactly.  The boot screen on Finless' ROM looks like a tacky billboard.  It has no fewer than 6 plugs. 


It is not about the boot screen it is about the content, so while Harold and his gang want to start making fun at work people have done, take a step back and realise that the Rom is what gives the functionality to the tablet and not the boot screen. As much as I am bias been a moderator on Freaktab Harold I am sure it is in your interest to verbally bash people that are doing better things, now you are a moderator here ....

Damo, I don't "bash" people.  Never have, never will.  Been on computer supports boards since there were boards (and probably before a few here were born).  I have not once denigrated Bob's work on the ROM, nor yours, nor anyone else's.  I've said many times I'm running it myself.

 

I have said, and I stand by my opinion, the splash screen is in bad form, is in bad taste, and is antithetical to what typically goes on in the developer community, and Bob's response to the criticism (and apparently yours) is an overreaction.  You do whatever you want with yours or anyone else's ROM.  It's yours.  But you put it out there and and anyone who wants is allowed to comment.  Deal with it, or keep your stuff to yourself.

BOOM!!

 

finless, damo take the hint, stop trying to limit what people can and cant do with your fw it wont work. there will always be people out there that can out do ita and relese it it has just been proven that your pretty little splash scren can be undone let the people have the ability to customize back and STOP PUTTING YOUR NAME TO EVERYTHING every body is aware you built it you posted the dam thing so why you feel the need your name on every boot and splash screen is beyond me start making boot screes to feed the community on her freaktab and xda and not to feed your ego.. nuff said

Nope... not going to happen alex....

Again, I am doing things a little different.  Want my ROM?  You get what you get.  No hint will be taken end of story.  You think these other sites are not getting in your face with ads, pop ups, etc?  So you take the hint and figure out how it all works.  There is never a free ride on any site!  I think having that BS in your face on web sites all the time is worse than a 5 second boot screen in a ROM.

Someone doesnt want to use my ROM because of a stupid splash screen that lasts all of 5 seconds... Fine.  I do not care honestly.

Last post on this conversation.  It's a total waste of time.  See ya!

Changing the boot image image and logo animation in finless custom firmware is pretty easy.

I have documented the process in the WIKI on the Boot logo modification page, see the note at the end of the document.

PM me if you need any help doing that, for your own private use Wink

was this line actually meant seriously? It sounds like a line out of a Justin Beber track. Great justification for stuffing your advert onto people faces - better developers care less about self promotion
