webOSroundup: Cyanogenmod9 Alpha 1 Released!!

Recommended Posts

Screenshot_2012-02-21-20-24-56-300x225.pWe have been waiting for Alpha 1 since Alpha 0 was released. Well, wait no more! As of 9:47 PM last night, alpha 1 was released to the public! This release is still *alpha* and should be treated as such. This still carries all the warnings that the last 3 releases had.  But this version also carries a lot more features that we have been waiting for, like HD video playback. It still does not support Netflix streaming yet, but they are certainly making some amazing progress! See below for the changelog, links, and more info.

  • Hardware video decoding support. As a result, Youtube HD and 720p and 1080p local media will now be playable. 
    Netflix does not work yet.
  • Includes touchscreen improvements by Dees_Troy
  • Now able to enable use of 2D companion core to offload composition

And below are the release notes.

We finally have hardware video decode working largely thanks to some help from yjwong. This release is primarily just to get hardware decoding out for folks to enjoy while other work continues. This build 
does not work with Netflix yet
. However, hardware accelerated video decoding does work for Youtube HD and playback of local media. This build still uses the 2.6.35 kernel. The 3.0 kernel is still being heavily worked on and is also the primary focus for development. Don’t expect hardware video decoding to be perfect yet. Its half a miracle it works at all on our current kernel.

Similar to the last build I will provide flashable zips to make it easier to switch to lcd density 120 with proper launcher layout. The hardware video decoding will not make it into the nightlies for a few days. There is still some work to do in order to get it merged into repositories and ensure it doesn’t break other devices.

You can find the download links here.

    • Question: IPTV view problems on last release 4.10.31

      Hi LG! I have a bad problem with IPTV apps. I recently install your last firmware 4.10.31 and all my IPTV channels on all IPTV apps works very bad: the view starts and runs for only 30 seconds, then the TV stopped, forcing me to push a “refresh” on my player in app!  I have a stable fiber connection with ethernet cable on my E8 and I never see this problem in the last weeks...  What’s happened to IPTV channels? Why all my IPTV apps have the same bugs?  Can you check and solve

    • [pivotCE]LuneOS November Stable Release: Doppio

      The very long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re finally back with a new release called “Doppio” which we believe will be a milestone in terms of developments and the way forward! So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to for the past year? Well, actually a whole lot to be honest! We have upgraded the bluetooth stack from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5 which required quite some work to the kernels. This has been successfully completed for the Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead); unfortunately

    • TV turns on during night bug

      I currently have webos ver 04.70.45 lgwebostv uj670v   1. Under certain circumstances the TV will turn itself on during the night. After much testing it would appear that if a schedule program is due during the early hours while the TV is off it will turn itself on waking everyone. For example set a reminder for a program that starts at 11pm. Then if you turn your TV off at 10.30pm the TV will turn itself back on later. I suggest that there should be an additional check prior
