09:37 Topic for #motoactv is now MotoACTV Development. Channel logs at http://irclog.perlgeek.de/motoactv/
16:10 dproldan joined #motoactv
18:43 dproldan uhm,  they added this new settings to the database in 1.7+
18:43 dproldan const-string v7, "UPDATE system SET value=0 WHERE name=\'accelerometer_rotation\';"
18:49 dproldan that's why we can set it for a launcher?
18:49 dproldan apart of the kernel changes
19:54 stoudamire joined #motoactv
19:55 stoudamire @CEnnis91: Are you online?
19:55 dproldan he's not
19:55 stoudamire Hey man
19:56 stoudamire did you get my PM on XDA?
19:56 dproldan yes,  I got your images
19:56 dproldan thanks
19:56 dproldan I'm going to try them now
19:56 stoudamire No problem.
19:56 stoudamire I was just not sure, if the PM was sent or not.
19:56 dproldan yep
19:57 stoudamire Perfect. Then CEnnis91 got it as well.
19:57 dproldan yes,  we checked the md5sum of our downloads  and they matched
19:58 stoudamire Sound good. Hope, that helps.
19:58 dproldan I'll tell you the differences in 5 minutes
19:58 dproldan between the US and EU versions
19:58 stoudamire Okay.
19:59 stoudamire I think, the available languages are the main difference.
20:02 dproldan not sure,  there is spanish, portuguese, english and french in the US version
20:03 dproldan I was thinking of the metric values for height and weight,  FM radio bands,  etc
20:03 stoudamire You can choose German in the European version as well.
20:03 stoudamire But I do not use it. I prefer the English TTS.
20:05 stoudamire German, English, Spanish, French and Italian are the available languages.
20:05 dproldan oh,  English is not there?
20:05 stoudamire Funnywise, you have Portuguese in US version but not in the European version.
20:06 dproldan oh, sorry
20:06 dproldan they're selling it in Brazil too,  crazy distribution decisions
20:07 stoudamire Yeah, strange.
20:08 stoudamire Will you need images from future releases as well?
20:09 dproldan no,  once we have the EU version installed they can update
20:09 stoudamire Ok, then my job is done. :-)
20:11 dproldan ok,  installed them,  rebooting now
20:13 dproldan oh,  I have to root it
20:14 dproldan lol, I can choose New Zealand as country
20:15 stoudamire When Portutal gets out of the EU, New Zealand can join. :-)
20:15 stoudamire Maybe, that is the reason why there is no Portuguese language.
20:15 dproldan heh
20:17 dproldan ok,  date format,  weight and height units are the sane ones
20:19 dproldan FM radio band is "europe"
20:21 dproldan the system.img needs to be truncated, btw  there's some bug in the partition table
20:23 stoudamire What does that mean?
20:23 stoudamire :-)
20:24 dproldan sorry, system.img is too large to fit in the flash of the MotoACTV
20:24 dproldan when we extracted it,  it should be exactly the right lenght,  bu it's a few bytes longer
20:24 dproldan I needed to "cut" the final bytes of the file
20:25 [mbm] their fastboot is a bit stupid; the dd length and the max size allowed by fastboot differ by a few k
20:25 stoudamire I understand. And what do you mean with the bug in the partition table? Bad programming of Motorola? Or a failure in extracting the images?
20:26 dproldan I suppose something from Motorola,  the other partitions are perfect and we used the same command
20:27 stoudamire Maybe, you guys should ask for a job at Motorola. :-)
20:31 dproldan stoudamire: have you tried any of the available "roms"?
20:31 dproldan now that you have the images,  you can always return to unrooted stock.
20:32 stoudamire No, I haven´t rooted my MotoACTV yet. I´m tracking the threads but there is no extra feature which is useful for me.
20:33 stoudamire I actually use the MotoACTV for running and for nothing else.
20:33 stoudamire My Galaxy Nexus, my EVO View 4G and my Nook are all rooted as I can get some extra functionality out of rooting them.
20:34 stoudamire A battery saving kernel would be nice. :-)
20:36 dproldan ok,  people are reporting that they can use different "running" applications fine after rooting,   things like endomondo and I-don't-know-what
20:37 dproldan when rooted,  you can set the MotoACTV to always stay at 300 MHz instead of going to 600Mhz
20:38 dproldan also lower the minimum screen brigthness,  stock doens't go lower than 50 IIRC
20:39 stoudamire The other running applications are not an argument for me as they are designed for larger screens. I´m quite happy with the  functionality of the workout app from Motorola.
20:39 stoudamire The only thing I hate is the portal. Compared to others like strava or garmin it is a nightmare.
20:40 stoudamire The undervolting and the minimum brightness are good arguments. :-)
20:45 dproldan Files system7.10/lib/libgki.so and system7.10E/lib/libgki.so differ
20:56 Larry94 joined #motoactv
20:59 dproldan well,  the images are working fine
21:00 dproldan CEnnis91 will zip and post them
21:01 dproldan all the apks are changed because of the languages added,  I'm not sure if I can maintain two different modified roms
21:03 dproldan only strange things for me in /system are that libgki.so and /bin/serialno_tracker
21:04 stoudamire As I can go back to stock, this is not a problem as I am using mine in English already. I will probably check out your rom next weekend.
21:05 stoudamire I will come back to you if I have any questions. :-)
21:05 dproldan tomorrow or tuesday I'm releasing a new version based on 1.7.10
21:07 stoudamire Sounds good. Keep up the good work.
21:07 stoudamire See ya.
