Just found out a new update of CyanogenMod 7 for Milestone A853 RC11 was uploaded, here is the download link:
Note that this is a new update on July 6, include some quick fix something. e.g fix touch-to-focus. Another important fix is Allow loading of vendor specific services from compiled jar files. This is needed e.g. for the Motorola AGPS code.
CyanogenMod 7 for Milestone is a rom which is created by Nadlabak based on offical cyanogenMod 7, many thanks to him, for bringing us the nice Gingerbread.
Good News, CyanogenMod 7 for Milestone A853 Just Updated 3 Hours ago. There has been two weeks since the last update released, because of nadlabak’s phone need some repairs. The broken part is the touch screen, which is the most fragile parts, have heard serval people who own Milestone suddenly get their touch screen out of work. I am worried about my Milestone, just using it carefully. One suggestions: DO NOT operate the phone while the phone is connected to computer or the charger, the electric current may hurt the touch screen.
Here is the download address:
Will test and post review after I get my Milestone in hand.
Warning: I don’t have a Milestone XT720, so I havn’t try it by myself.
This is an official milestone xt720 Android 2.2 upgrade, but it is not from Moto, Shame on you Moto, made the bootloader, don’t let the old phone upgrade without your software support, people would like to upgrade by themself doesn’t care about that maybe they will brick the phone, we are waiting for the day that the f**king bootloader be cracked.
Alright, let’s see the upgrade deatils: http://cincinnatibell.com/milestoneupgrade/
camera: Implement touch-to-focus
Touch-to-focus is implemented on supported cameras. Does not work in
camcorder mode yet (framework code is needed to support this).
kuyaDROID was updated to v2.5.116 on july 2, a Gingerbread rom sony ericsson x8, based on CM7, I have update the phone and test it for two days, phone be much more reliable, and good news is data connection bug which is mentioned in the froyo and gingerbread for xperia x8 comparison, is gone now, always be a EDGE connection.
Light sensor is activated for automatic backlights. And more performance futures added to CM settings, like overclock, but I don’t use it, because the Qualcomm MSM7227’s performance seems not get higher as the frequency increased, and the frequency can’t get too much high or the CPU might be damaged.
CM7 support overclock the Milestone cpu simply, the OMAP 3430 cpu original speed is 550 mHz, we can overclock it to 1000 mHz for getting snappy operating experience, but the phone will get to high temperature if you run HD games, consider it’s summer here, I subject to set a lower frequency, like 800mHz.
In the default CM7 overclock profile, 900mHz is the highest frequency, here is the method to get ride of the default setting.
I have done some tests on Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 with different roms, I have compared serval roms that I have get these differences between Android 2.2 and Androi 2.3 on Xperia X8 below. I hoped this comparison can help you to find out which one to choose.
Maybe you would ask, why don’t you evaluate Eclair which is the sony ericsson official 2.1 rom, I would rahter to say, oh come on, don’t you realize the official rom is a littel boring and there is a lot of useless program eating your poorly battery? also the light sersor which drive the auto brightness being crazy.
I have taken Froyobread and kuyaDROID to compare, froyobread is based on CM6.1 and its latest version is v017 updated on 29 June, kuyaDROID is based on CM7.1 and its latest version is v2.4 updated on 26, June. Both of them is stable for daily use, fast, battery-saved. Now let’s see the differences between them. I will not use score software, just talking about the user experiences.
The one reason why I brought Moto Milestone is Moto use CrystalTalk tech in theirs mobile phones. You should know there is no CrystalTalk in the CyanogenMod for Milestone, some people want to adding this amazing function in CyanogenMod, here is an update.zip file for you.
Some people does not like the original setting of automatic backlight(automatic brightness) in Android, it’s always too bright nor too dark, the light sensor is there, so it can be tweak by manual . I would like to tell you how to optimize the automatic backlight settings in CyanogenMod 7(CM7) step by step.
