|Qware Pro 3 - Custom Roms
Installing CWM Recovery (4.0.3 Qware rom and later)
The instructions I posted below for the 4.0.x roms does not work with the Qware rom which was released today. For the new rom use these files/instructions:
I have not tested the reboot-recovery.sh script (I have not yet installed gscript) but the 'standard' command works:
As someone mentioned on www.tweakers.net it is also possible to start into CWM by keeping the menu and power button pressed when the device is turned of. Some users reported problems but for me this key combination has worked every time .
2012-07-15 Over the last couple of months I have tested several custom roms (CyanBook, CM9 and AOKP) but so far they do not offer anything extra (I have no need for Bluetooth or other USB device support) or have other issue's so I reverted to the Airpad 20120307 rom every time. I am currently uploading the roms to Mediafire so that you can try them yourself!
2012-03-12 Finally a root/superuser that works with the ICS roms: SuperSU-CWM. I tested version 0.73 and that works (including root access notifications/requests). I have not yet tested 0.75 but I assume that also works . To install it download the zip file to your sdcard (extsd), boot into CWM and install the zip file.
2012-03-02 A user from www.tweakers.net has created a very nice custom ICS rom (FezzFest_Momo9_ICS) based on the 2012-02-25 rom for the MOMO9. It is even faster (1800+ Quadrant score) and the market should show more apps.
Installing CWM Recovery (4.0.x)
No CWM custom roms have appeared so far but, if you want to be prepared, it is possible to installing CWM on a ICS rom:
After this you can boot into recovery with the 'magic' button (volume up or another one; have not tested this yet) or with the following ADB command (which I did test ):
Inside CWM you can navigate with the Volume up and down buttons. You select an option with the power button.
Installing CWM Recovery (2.3.4)
THIS PROCEDURE DOES NOT WORK WITH THE ICS IMAGE
The first thing you need to do is install CWM Recovery so that you can backup your rom and install a new one if wanted. Since the device is already rooted the procedure is pretty straightforward (at least when you're familiar with android devices):
After this procedure CWM Recovery is installed. Unlike the X10i I own there is no way to start it with a keypress during boot but you can boot into recovery with the following command:
I do have to mention that booting into android from the recovery is not always easy! The CWM reboot option reboots but sometimes into CWM (shutting the device down by pressing the power button for 20 seconds should solve this). If not the following command should certainly get you back into android:
Installing a custom rom
Before you install a custom rom you should always make a backup!
The only rom I tried so far (not that there are many at the moment) is Gustev's V3.1 Test rom (related topic). As far as I know he can remove the Test part since it works perfectly. The notification bar has been modified so that you no longer see the unneeded network signal icon. The only thing I can recomment to change after the install is the LCD density setting so that more information will be displayed on the screen. You can do this by adding the following line to the build.prop file which is located in the /system/ folder (user root explorer or another tool to edit it):
First however you need to install the rom:
