General :: Possible To Keep Gingerbread Kernel For ICS?
Sep 14, 2012
Well I am working on beagleboard-xm project, where I am supposed to upgrade the current Android version to ICS. The thing is, I have to keep the current kernel , because it is customized for some applications that run on that board. It is not me that compiled that kernel...
Is it even possible to keep the "old" kernel and upgrade to ICS? Can it be done in any way? Or a new kernel with new patches has to be installed...?
Google brought more language support to Android with Gingerbread. How do I use it? the only indication of Arabic support is that, when I get a text message in Arabic, it shows the letters in Arabic, but not connected to each other the way they should be.What I want is to make everything Arabic,not just messages received in Arabic.
I just bought a GAlaxy Beam gi-i8530 and it is unlocked to any carrier. I read that it can be upgraded to ICS. My current android version is 2.3.6 Ginger bread and i wanted to know how can I upgrade my galaxy beam.
im trying to install ics camera app which comes ICS nightly Cm9 custom rom of my phone lg l3 e400.i dont like that rom because its unstable.but when ever i tries to install camera.apk it says intallation failed , i have also tried to put camera.apk to system/app/ but after reboot i doesnt works.i have also made camera app flashable zip but it wont worked .
I am wondering if there is a way to get apps that are supposed to work for 4.0 and newer to work on 2.3.5? My friend has a phone that is currently running gingerbread. I currently have a phone running 4.1.2.
I have a i897 (captivate) and was wondering, if i am on stock ROM, 2.3.5, do i also have GB boot loaders or will i have to install them. if it turns out i have to install them, looking for tar file for GB boot loaders so i can flash it with Odin.
I just recently bought the Samsung Galaxy S II on the Straight Talk network. The phone comes stock with the Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 OS and I'd like to upgrade to the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS.
How does CM9 get ported to phones that dont have a CM9 BASE to begin with? Such as the Samsung Galaxy W. How do they do that.? Because to my knowledge, you must port a ROM with the same firmware as your Base.
I want to use textinput-tng.apk from Android 2.3.4 in ICS (I have Xperia Mini Pro SK17i with Ported and working ICS ROM).I tried to install it normally but it did not worked so i tried to copy in /system/app with proper permission but it did not worked.I want to use gesture input method for English language.
How to port over apps from Ice Cream, and Jelly Bean to Gingerbread? I see other people/developers porting apps from ICS to GB, such as apps like ICS Messaging, ICS Launcher, ICS Task Manager, ICS Camera, ICS Gallery, ICS Clock, ICS Calculator and the list goes on and on.
While there are a couple apps that have not been ported, such as the browser, phone/people app, email, and calendar; instead of waiting for others to port them, I would just like to learn how to do it myself.
Lets say I have the stock messaging app from Ice Cream, how would I make the app compatible with GB, and make it a non-system app? Besides just changing the Android Manifest to be compatible, because I tried that, and it did not work ( I just got Force Close).
It is possible to port GB lockscreen to ICS? Honestly i dont like ICS locksceen and i prefer GB version. I cannot try this because i delete all rom with GB from my HDD, and i using mobile internet so i cant download files much.
I am using gingerbread 2.3.6 am board with my caller id so I want to change my caller id i tried FSCI and BIG! caller id both is not working when i try to attend the call but it show all the template which i have configured when i go to the green button it shows ur device forced to use system caller id and it comes back to that board caller id.... is there any way to change with working?
I am a ROM developer.(Look in my signature). However, I am not quite pleased with holo launcher. I recently discovered an old version of ICS launcher which had A FULLY FUNCTIONAL CLONE OF THE ICS SOFT BUTTON BAR. If any dev here is good at apks and all that stuff, then to add that bottom bar to holo launcher? Apk attached below...
