[Rom] CyanogenMod 10 for Motorola Milestone A853, How to Install and Quick Review

[Rom] CyanogenMod 10 for Motorola Milestone A853, How to Install and Quick Review, 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 ratings

At the beginning of August, Skrilax_CZ has set up a build server to maintain the CyanogenMod 10 for Motorola Milestone nightly builds, no doubt the author of this unofficial CyanogenMod 10 rom is nadlabak, who builds CM7 and CM9 for Milestone. Since the source code of Android Jelly Beam is released, he has done a lot of coding jobs to make CyanogenMod 10 (Android Jelly Beam based) running on Moto Milestone A853, many thanks to him.

* How to install CyanogenMod 10 for Motorola Milestone A853 (for the guys who already playing with CM customize roms)
1. Download CM10 for Milestone nightly rom update package and the google apps for Android Jelly Beam package. (download link will be attached at the end of this post)
2. Reboot the phone to Open Recovery, wipe data, wipe cache and davilk cache.
3. Apply update, Install the CyanogenMod 10 rom then install the gapps.
4. Reboot system. First boot may take more than 5 minutes. (boot animation still CM9)

The first running of CM10 system on Milestone A853 will be very very slow, that is because every applications use the hardware accelerator, eaten up all RAM. Just be patients, after setting up your google account, the first thing you are going to do is disabled the apps using hardware accelerator, in the app drawer, you can see an icon of silver Gear, open it, then disable all apps’ hardware accelerator permissions, then reboot the phone, you will find out the system is running much smoother than before.

      After several uninstall & reinstall coupled with booting & reboot again & again, the wifi came to work! It’s amazing!
      However I found that the handwriting input is not working, I cannot even check the box in language & input setting!!!

    The CM-10-20120823 is suck! Can’t make any phone call.

  5. Renato says:

    Perfect. Only video recording that is not working.

  6. Renato says:

    - Applies gapps, but does not appear applications (play)

    • scoutme says:

      Did you wipe both caches?
      If so, you should reboot twice to let the boot sequence fix permissions and “optimize” apps. Consider using an ext partition for applications, too: we have very little space…

  7. scoutme says:

    keep in mind these are nightly builds of code the author hasn’t released yet. The only stable Cyanogenmod version for Milestone is CM7 from the same author (kabaldan/nadlabak). Do not blame him for something he didn’t release ;)

    Keep looking these repository for development status: https://github.com/nadlabak

  9. the version of 0823 is broken on my device

    On start they configure all applications so, the configuration wizard stop work, and all stop work, dont open configuration menu, dont show de buttons on botton, dont change the desktop screen..

    Nice how to thx
    CM 10 runs very good in my oppinion better then CM9.
    After disable the hardware accelerator it runs much smoother, but the GApps dont run. I wiped all cache, do a lot of reboots, have also frequently repeated the update.
    So what next time i will try it again.

  11. zapax says:

        • peteopablo says:

          Go in the cm10 package and delete in /system/app/ not required apk’s
          like :

          By the way you can delete in /system/media some ringtones or notifications
          copy the new package run the install
          It will run

          • jml says:
