If you guys like any of the ROMS that I have shared and would
like to buy me a beer or a patron shot haha Id appreicate it!
I only drink with friends and friends always come first. :thumbsup:

If you need a custom personal ROM built PM me

ROM Flashing Instruction:

- Before flashing any of my ROM make sure you are using a sd card that you know for sure is formatted correctly and is able to flash the stock Dynavin ROM without any problems. Always try to use the original unformattted 2GB micro sdcard that came with your Dynavin first. If you are having problems flashing the stock rom recheck the micro sd card you are using is formatted correctly.
- Copy all of my ROM files to that verified working micro sdcard.
- After flashing a new ROM make sure to take out all sdcards. (Disconnect all wifi and bluetooth adapters if you are having problems booting Android)
- Power off the Dynavin and wait 1 minute before powering back on. This is needed for the Android side to power down and clear out RAM.
- When powering on tap the power button (Do not hold down the power button for more than 1 second)
- First boot after flashing a new ROM should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
- After successfully booting into Android you can reattach all wifi bluetooth and sdcards and use normally.

If you are still having problems with the blank screen

- First thing to check after powering on is to check if your wifi dongle is getting power and the led light is on. Some of the black blank screen could be the Android side is not even powered on while the radio side is on and working normally. If this happens power off wait 1 minute and power back on by tapping the power button.

R1.221
Changes:
  • I got Voice Search to stop crashing and should work for everybody now
  • Google Maps 6.5
  • LauncherEX 2.85
  • Torque should work with most BT adapter just pair with your OBDII adapter
  • Bluetooth settings will still show "paired but not connected" but in reality it is actually connected and working normally!

Before updating to R1.221
Time how long it takes to fully boot from powering on till the
home screen appears with the R1 rom you have installed now.

R1.2
Changes:
  • Updated Timezone data to 2012b
  • ClockSync preconfigured and enabled at firstboot
  • Faster GPS and Time sync
  • Newer Busybox 1.19.3
  • A few newer statusbar icons
  • LauncherEx now optional
For faster GPS fix and Time sync
  1. Open the Clocksync app
  2. Go to settings
  3. Scroll down to "Select time zone"
  4. Change this to your timezone


R1.1
Changes:
  • Optimized for faster boot time



My original Dynavin stock rom Plus ROOT



==================================================

First boot after flashing should take no more than 5-10 minutes which is normal.

To make UI faster after first boot I ususally change the defualt setting in SparePart to:
  • Windows Animations - Fast
  • Transition Animation - Fast
  • Haptic Feedback - Off
  • Compatibility Mode - Off

To make the following changes you will need RootExplorer or smillar app.

V6 Supercharger script is off by default. To activate it using shell go to /system/xbin/v6

You can now add custom scripts to run at boot in the following folder /system/etc/init.d

Two scripts that are currently in there now to run at boot are fix_permissions and zipalign.
The fix_permission helps correct lots of force close problems.
If these scripts makes your boot time slow you can safely delete them from the init.d folder.

I made changes to /system/etc/wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat
Originally it wasnt setup so I changed it to US settings.
If you are not living in the US you might want to adjust this to your region for better wifi connection. Here is a link that describes the possible settings.
http://www.cyberciti.biz/files/README_STA.txt

If you are starting to have force close problem doing a super clean might help
To do a super clean of dalvik cache and reboot go to /system/xbin/sclean

To change boot animation go to /data/local and place your new bootanimation.zip file

Here are some changes you can make in the /system/build.prop file.

Uncomment this first line and change it to your timezone only if Clocksync is not updating your timezone correctly.
#persist.sys.timezone=America/Los_Angeles


#
# Adjust this to how often the wifi should scan
wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=15
debug.sf.nobootanimation=1
ro.sf.lcd_density=240

Wifi:
The WiFi problem that we all have is a known bug in Froyo that google fixed with Gingerbread. So for now we are stuck with the problem until Dynavin release a Gingerbread rom. I did find an app called "Fix my wifi" that automates the process of turning on and off wifi whenever it loses connection. Its not a perfect fix to our problem but it helps.

I might have a work around to our wifi problem though without the use of any extra app.
Try these steps out and report back if it has help or not. I have not had any drop or wifi problems in the last couple of days but I am not going to call this a fix unless it works for the majority of us.
  • You will have to manually enter in your SSID and Pasword by editing /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
  • Then you have to change wpa_supplicant.conf permission from read write to read only.
  • Now the system cant alter and forget your wifi info.
  • Wifi will only look for your SSID to connect to.

Bluetooth:
Torque should work with most BT adapter just pair with your OBDII adapter
Bluetooth settings will still show "paired but not connected" but in reality it is actually connected and working normally!

This rom is for dynavin android units.

Cretster 03-13-2012 07:23 PM

That looks fantastic mate!! Thankyou for your efforts in putting this together, and ace to see you included things like car mode etc.

I sooo can't wait to try this and see how it runs!
Thanks again.

listermint 03-14-2012 03:52 AM

Wifi Fix

Just wondered what this particular thing is exactly (obviously the description says a lot, but I mean what the problem is that is being fixed)?


Another big issue I've got that may be too late to request assistance in terms of baking anything into your rom, is getting bluetooth dongles to function in Android. I've tried a couple now and am currently using your existing rooted rom, but just cannot get them to work. Is there anything I can do to add drivers in or anything like that?

Many thanks

Scott183 03-15-2012 03:43 PM

I don't even own a D99 yet, but can appreciate the work that must have gone into this! Great job!

Mr_ceee 03-15-2012 05:57 PM

That looks fantastic. I can't wait to get my dynavin and get this installed.

Have you managed to fix the force close problem people were having?
Have you had any problems running out of ram?

EnDLeSs_27 03-15-2012 06:28 PM

It would be nice if there was a way to remove the "rotate screen" button. My fat fingers always hit it when I am trying to tap the home button.

crristic 03-16-2012 02:16 AM

Hope this solves the force close issues. right now pretty much any native app refuses to work, except music and web browser. I'm in for a rom reinstall this weekend - hopefully yours :)

Thats on the to do list. Its somewhere in the system frameworks and thats a trick place to mess around in. If you make changes in one area of that it cause other major problems like boot loops.

Theres a known wifi bug in Froyo that google fixed in the Gingerbread roms. But Ive made some changes in mine that should help but might not be a total fix so we might be stuck with the problem until we move up to Gingerbread.

Buy the sabrent stub dongle off amazon. Works great for me.

Cretster 03-16-2012 12:49 PM

Thanks but I already did that and got ripped off.

I followed the link for the Sabrent one on Amazon that someone else posted up a while back and bought one. The postage to the UK cost more than the bloody dongle itself, but what they sent me was a cheap generic Chinese one that doesn't work in the Dynavin (no surprise there as it's not the known working one).
I'm livid about it after they advertised Sabrent ones and I paid for that but got a worthless piece of crud instead. They've had a complaint but I don't expect anything to come of it.

I'll try to order one again but need to find somewhere that won't take the mickey on the postage to uk (not found them actually for sale here), and will actually send me what I've paid for instead of defrauding me. :(

Sorry if that's a bit ranty - it's not aimed at anyone here of course, am just venting.

Ahh ok. Thanks for clarifying.
Everything about this Rom sounds great anyway.

Thanks again for your efforts.:bow:

I'll flash this soon as it's up there anyway. Can't wait! :)

m3evolution 03-16-2012 12:56 PM

I got 5 different BT dongles and none of them work with the Dynavin and one it looks like the Sarbent one and I even tried the Sarbent one bought at Frys Electronics and that too didnt work.

It comes down to the current kernel that is being used by Dynavin. It is missing a few drivers to make it work. Its a known problem and was fixed by TI in their newer version 2.637. I have been trying to build a new working kernel that would fix wifi and Bluetooth but no luck yet.
