Something interesting for gen9 owners

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

A little birdie just told us about stock firmware:

Vibra is not built into all units, but if yours has a vibra motor you can turn it on by issuing:

  echo ro.board.has_vibrator=yes >> /data/local.prop

If you want to damage your hearing, this one is for you:

  echo >> /data/local.prop


We’ll not be held responsible for whatever you do with this information. For all we know the unit might try to bite you or eat your homework!


A preview to ‘Bull’ – next openAOS Android release for gen7/gen8

Monday, December 5th, 2011

The first ReleaseCandidate has been done a while ago and we got some very important feedback from the testers – thanks again to everyone who filed tickets! We’re working hard with our limited resources to make this a great release, sadly this takes time.

As the RC is not advertized nor supported you haven’t read about it here on the openAOS blog. Still we figure we should show you what’s cooking now that we’re closing in. This release will still be based on Cyanogenmod 7 and will support Archos gen7 and gen8 devices (including A48IT).

Thanks to leijae for the video!
