Wi-Fi working on CyanogenMod 9 on Huawei U8185

So I just got Wi-Fi working on CyanogenMod 9 on Huawei U8185: I’m using the Atheros AR6kSDK kernel driver and wpa_supplicant 0_6_X, so it’s kinda ghetto… 😉 Right now Wi-Fi scanning, WPA2, and DHCP work, but for some reason DNS isn’t working so, while you can reach hosts outside your network, you can’t actually browse […]

Fix for Dalvik compile error on CyanogenMod 9

I started getting this error while compiling CyanogenMod 9 (Android 4.0.x) last week: dalvik/vm/native/dalvik_system_Zygote.cpp: In function ‘int setrlimitsFromArray(ArrayObject*)’: dalvik/vm/native/dalvik_system_Zygote.cpp:199:19: error: aggregate ‘setrlimitsFromArray(ArrayObject*)::rlimit rlim’ has incomplete type and cannot be defined struct rlimit rlim; ^ dalvik/vm/native/dalvik_system_Zygote.cpp:222:43: error: ‘setrlimit’ was not declared in this scope err = setrlimit(contents[0], &rlim); ^ make: *** [out/host/linux-x86/obj/SHARED_LIBRARIES/libdvm_intermediates/native/dalvik_system_Zygote.o] Error 1 make: *** […]

Calls partially working on U8185 on CyanogenMod 9

During the crash the audio would route to the loudspeaker for a […]

RIL working on Huawei U8185 on CyanogenMod 9

It’s still a bit rough, but the RIL is now working on the Huawei U8185 on CyanogenMod 9. As you can see, I have network bars, and an SMS has just come in: I’m using Dazzozo’s prototype HuaweiQualcommRIL class, which he based on CyanogenMod’s QualcommRIL, but added changes from decompiling Huawei’s RIL in the Gingerbread […]

Compiling CyanogenMod 9 for the Huawei U8185

A few months ago I proposed a project to port CyanogenMod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to the Huawei U8185. I got the project started by porting ClockworkMod Recovery, and then got CyanogenMod 9 booting not longer after that. I had some good momentum, but I was alone; not exactly what I had in mind when […]
