A perfect cocktail of android apps on cyanogenmod roms

I am one of those people who like to customize their phones a little too much. I happen to have an LG SU640 (Optimus LTE)  . A mighty good phone but somehow it didn't get the due attention at the time of release.

Anyways, so I have never kept stock on my phone for more than 4 days in a row. The only time I am on stock is actually when I have to recover my phone from a dead state. Personally I prefer cyanogenmod roms, specifically paranoid android by utacka. But I have found CM Roms to be lacking the spice of the appearance.  So I have come up with a perfect mix of apps to overcome that. And here they are.


SMS
GoSms. People at Go Dev have produced really awesome apps.

Keyboard.
A.I type keyboard + windows 8 theme (available by default) + emoji plugin

Lock screen .
Go locker


Home screen ( launcher)
Nova (preferred)
LG home 3 (preferred)
Go launcher
Apex

Notes.
Color notes

Browser.
Dolphin
Maxthon

Grocery list / shopping.

Root and Recovery LG LU6200 ICS [Confirmed]

I have had a few queries regarding Rooting and installing Recovery on LU6200 running Stock ICS.

So here is how you can root your LU6200 and install CWM touch in less than 10 minutes.

Disclaimer: I did not write the scripts nor recovery, I found these methods on internet in other languages and I have put them here for easy access for others.

Files you need.
Root_en.zip for rooting
Flash recovery6.0.1.2.rar for ClockworkMod Recovery installation

Procedure.


Rooting


  1. Download the above files and save them to a folder e-g "c:\Lu6200_root"
  2. Unzip Root_en.zip
  3. In the unzipped folder run "LG-Optimus_LTE_rooting_ICS-JB.bat" file and follow instructions


If you follow the instructions exactly as it says to follow, you will have your LU6200 Rooted when you reboot.

Installing ClockworkMod recovery



  1. Unrar Flash recovery6.0.1.2.rar 
  2. In the extracted folder, execute "Recovery.bat" 
  3. Follow instructions ...

and voila!! you have recovery.


That is all.

LG SU640 (Optimus LTE) Modified Stock ROM V30D - Stable

I have been experimenting with different Roms for my LG SU640. I've been to CM9 , 10, 10.1 . Tried PAC Rom , paranoid ... you name it, I have tried it. But every Rom that I have tested lacks few things in particular.

Stability 
(Ability to pass a day without FC , without Reboot without hiccups)

Battery Life 
( If it passes 1.5 days with my usage*, I am more than happy)

Peace of mind 
(Not worrying about missing a call because the cell froze when it received the notification)

While other Roms are not at all useless... I particularly love ParanoidAndroid, PAC Rom is an excellent mixture of AOKP,CM and Paranoid but with all custom Roms I have had instances where I had to suffer due to either FC or a random reboot.

So, I figured maybe I should give Stocks a try, Stock official release is always slow and mostly bloated till the throat but MOST stable. And then there are Modified Stocks (technically not stock anymore :P) with stability of Stocks and optimized for performance . They contain all the useful stock apps and none of the useless bloat. The best one I've found is ...wait for it...

Sphinx v3 Supercharge 

It has

  • English language
  • Cool homescreen / icon themes , 
  • An excellent lockscreen with multiple themes same as found on LG Optimus G with awesome Drop effect (something to drool upon) 
  • Pretty neat weather app
  • One handed operation capable keyboard (you will love this feature)
  • Excellent stock dialer and contacts app.
  • Very capable Messaging app (SMS length not limited to 120 characters)
  • Notes with widgets
  • LG Q-Slide feature apps (Calendar , Calculator , Note , Browser, Video player) (True multi-tasking)
  • and much much more...


In short, I did not have to go through the hassle of installing basic software because the stock stuff is so awesomely usable.

You can get this amazing modified stock ROM sphinx v3 supercharge v6 on the links below

Flashing Procedure :

Strictly follow the given procedure for best results.
  • 4 wipes (Factory defaults , Wipe cache, Wipe dalvic cache , format system)
  • Install from Zip (may take longer than other Roms)
  • Once flashed, reboot and wait ...
  • wait... wait...
  • Once you are booted into the Rom, Choose language , DO NOT sign in with Google account just yet. Skip the Google account login and let it reach the homescreen.
  • Go to applications and start Super SU, it will ask you to update SU binary, select yes and select the procedure other than through Recovery. Reboot when done.
  • After reboot, enjoy your Rom.
  • Let the system settle for about 24 hours before you give your verdict on its performance
**IMPORTANT**
Your Rom flash should take around 5 minutes. And it should take the longest on "Copying system files" message. If your flash time is less than 5 minutes, you'll most likely end up in a bootloop.

If you had 5 minutes flash and still experience bootloop then the possibility is that you ubricked using gingerbread v10i KDZ. To fix that follow the below procedure contributed by one of our users.

1. Flash v30C_00.kdz2. Root & install CWM3. Boot into recovery and do 4 wipes4. Flash this or other rom of your choice and enjoy your phone

LG SU640 Stable CyanogenMod 10.1.2 is out

This year has been filled with nothing but surprises for LG SU640 users. First they released a JellyBean flavored Update (Android 4.1.1) V30C, which was laggy to say the least. But after a month V30D (Android 4.1.1) was launched which had much improved functionality. These updates can be applied using LG update tool or KDZ files can be downloaded from LG website.

Then there is MIUI's latest offering which is nothing short of amazing in terms of user experience.

And today another awesome news has hit the web, CyanogenMod 10.1.1 (stable) and CyanogenMod 10.1.2 (stable) are officially available for downloads.

Complete stable repo can be found at http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=stable&device=su640

Enjoy everyone, our SU640 just got more awesome ^_^

The mystery of OpenCv and BeagleBoard-XM

This guide is for anyone who is thinking of using BeagleBoard-xM DM3730's DSP for OpenCV to get an extra boost in algorithm execution. This guide is also for everyone who has just started to search for leads , hints, pointers... anything regarding OpenCV and BB-xM

I'll start by referring to a Texas Instruments White paper on OpenCV on TI’s DSP+ARM platforms. The white paper suggests that OpenCV can and is easily ported on TI's heterogeneous SoC (ARM+DSP).

This white paper lead me to believe that we have a shot at porting our current OpenCV anaytics app to an embedded platform assuming it to be a simple "Cross-compile" with the hurdles of "any other" cross-compilation exercise, but I was wrong.

Where was I wrong , you ask ?

1 - Beagleboard-xM has (DM3730) ARM Cortex A8 + DSP (C64x). ARM Cortex A8 has neon fpu but DSP (C64x) is only a fixed point DSP. So, thinking that porting OpenCV to DM3730 will yield the results I wanted to see was wrong.
OpenCV heavily relies on floating point arithmetic, and absence of a hardware fpu may not give the boost I needed.

2 - TI's claim that OpenCV has been ported and optimized for TI's multicore systems. The OpenCV port is compiled with C6EZaccel library which has been rendered obsolete by TI but is still downloadable. And a guide is available for reference on how to Get started with C6EZaccel. But C6EZaccel v2.xxx is the one with "so called" optimized port of OpenCV and that is only available for DM8148 and DM8168.

3 - TI's support will almost always point to Building OpenCV for ARM Cortex A-8 .

4 - C6EZaccel is obsolete, and hence proper support is no longer there. TI is promoting its VLIB I guess. Which leads me to believe that OpenCV project didn't go very well.

Conclusion:
BB-xM is a very good embedded hardware to start a project on. It can make use of OpenCV easily but only on ARM following the guide mentioned in pt.3 .But BB-xM is not a good choice if you are expecting a boost in performance by porting OpenCV to its DSP side.

Useful pointers:
OpenCV is a floating point depended library.
C64x is a fixed point DSP.
C674x is a floating point DSP
If you want performance in OpenCV, use IPP.


I hope this post will save a lot of days of internet surfing for many.
