CyanogenMod 9 booting on Huawei U8185

It’s booting. It’s not pretty, but it’s booting.

All I can see are lines, which seems to indicate a framebuffer format issue. The lines are actually throbbing, though, which looks to me like the CyanogenMod 9 Cid boot animation. 🙂

For what it’s worth, adb shell works. Here you can see the kernel version:

[aorth@ndechu: ~]$ adb shell uname -sr

What this means

This means that the kernel is compiling correctly, and properly booting the device. I know it’s hard to believe, but this is actually a really good start. Many devices get a build compiled, only to flash it and get stuck at a vendor logo (HTC, Huawei, etc), which means the boot process never progresses past the bootloader.

The fact that we are seeing output on the screen and adb is working is a very good thing. 🙂

  1. Hey Alan, I successfully boot my u8185 with cyanogenmod 9, but still the camera doesn’t work and when making a call, a person on the other side don’t hear me. What could be the solution to this?
