Progress toward CM9 alpha6 for Epic 4G Touch


Clarification: No CM Stable Releases Yet
Epic Touch will not be among the devices that release RC1 with CM9.  This device will have alpha releases for now, beta after we have a fully working ICS kernel built from source, then RC/stable releases only after that is proven stable and we have a fully safe CWM recovery that no longer needs the temporary update-binary hack.


News
  • 6/13 CM9 Build (Not Alpha6)
    • Download Nightly Builds
      • Read below for changelog. Please test and report back here or on Google+
      • Notes on 6/13 build
        • If your internal and external storage switch after flashing the updated build, try settings > storage > settings > storage config > check use internal storage > reboot.
        • If having trouble with MMS not sending, push mms.apk from alpha 5 to /system/app/, set permissions to rw-r--r-- and reboot.
    Changelog since the release of Alpha5
    • Switch from old skater bootanimation to new Cid bootanimation.
    • Kernel has been updated to FF11
    • Reworking the RIL to better report actual signal strength
    • CWM Recovery and the option to reboot into recovery from reboot menu are now back in CM9.
    • We now have a "safer" recovery thanks to the work of chris41g and Dees_Troy. They have implemented a number of safe measures into CWM recovery to work around the eMMC bricking such as the removal of commands known to cause bricking and the use of a safe gingerbread update-binary when flashing .zips.

      1. Tried, bricked, jig flashed and took back to sprint. DO NOT DO IT YET!!!


        The Data.img still has the corruption issues with ICS.

      2. if you do fall into the /data corruption, you can get your phone running again with these instructions:

        you will lose a chunk of your internal memory due to moving partitions around the bad memory, but the trade off is well worth it if this is your only phone or just want it functioning again.

    10. I'm brave, flashed unofficial rc via cwm (though flashed it first with Odin cwm pda like with alpha 5) but no brick. GPS works flawless after revert to stock, lock, flash back to cm.

    12. derek, i was on aokp..i just flashed stock ff11 with root through ODIN.
      do i need to install alpha 5 ? or can i just go straight to build 6/13?
      is that build any better than the 6/17? its promoted on the page so i guess it is better or something? what is the best cm9 to update to riught now? and if i can't obtain a gps lock in ff11 stock rooted, will it not work in 613 or 6/17?
