Mod Type:: ROM

Difficulty:: Very Easy

Mod Base:: CyanogenMod

Mod Status:: Kang

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Requires Root:: Yes

Optional:: Requires GApps

Source::
In the same spirit as Samiam303 I've been building and hosting nightly builds of CM9 for the community to use. In particular I'm now building nightlies with OpenGL rendering turned on in addition to non-openGL builds (same as Samiam303). These builds are all straight sync with CM source with no additional mods. Builds are sync'd at 3am EST for non-openGL and 3.30am EST for openGL - they will be available to download approx 15 mins after their sync times.

So what does OpenGL rendering mean? It means we have some form of hardware acceleration for the UI and apps. It is not full hw accel and it is not hw video decoding. The couple of things you'll notice work is wallpaper scrolling in the launcher and chrome beta will mostly work to render webpages but will fc if you go into settings. Flash also somewhat works - I've found you definitely need to OC to get some flash videos to work, most still are not smooth.

The downside to it seems to vary user to user, some people report sluggish responses and some get lock ups, a few have no problems at all..

Either way, give them a try and report back. Please try to keep the thread on topic of these builds only, other mods can be flashed over, but that discussion should be in the respective thread. I'd also like to revisit keyodi's suggestion here (http://forum.xda-dev...04#post22277804) - a few people reported good results with that change. Any more feedback?

Downloads

There's a few ways to get the builds:
1) Browse the hosted folder here: http://techerrata.co...ly_kangs/encore 0 *NOTE* due to a filename change the latest builds are in the middle of the page - will have this fixed soon.
2) Follow @CM_Encore on twitter for announcements of the builds as they hit the host (PLEASE NOTE: @CM_Encore IS A TWITTER BOT - don't bother tweeting at it)
3) *NEW* Use the Goo Manager app to receive notifications of new builds and download them directly on your nook.

Latest gapps can be found here http://goo-inside.me/gapps or mirrored here http://tinyw.in/XnCb

Updates

For the latest updates/announcements follow me on twitter, or check back here.

3/10/12: Due to some merges yesterday you may need to reflash gapps when going from a nightly prior to 3/9 to later than 3/9

Credit and Thanks
Thanks to fattire, dalingrin and the rest of the CM encore theme for making this possible. Thanks to fellow TeamWin members Kevank for providing the hosting and to s0up for the Goo app.

Is it just me, or is it pretty quiet around here?

Just make sure it's the latest recovery img, and nandroid first. Don't forget compatible gapps.

I know how noobish this will sound, but what's the difference between the two downloads, the regular and opengl? Which one do I want, and why? Thanks!!

The OpenGL renderer is enabled in OpenGL builds, this provides some hardware acceleration in the UI and even for some flash video.. The reason it's not enabled by default is that some people experience lock-ups with it. AFAIK nobody has determined the cause.

In ICS, the menu key only appears when it's necessary, it was quite annoying to get used to at first. Google wants developers to stop using it completely: http://www.engadget....on-to-the-curb/ They are pushing the use of the "Action Bar" which was first seen in Honeycomb, this is the area on the top right of the screen that shows when needed. For an example, open up the Market and the menu button will be gone, but you will see links in the upper right hand corner for My Apps, etc.
