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.

    • [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 to date we haven’t been able to get this to work on the Touchpad (4G) (Tenderloin). We have been working closely together with the Halium project and have made further integrations between LuneOS and Halium reducing duplication between the projects and using a single source where possible. This all to be more easily integrated, and to facilitate ports to newer devices. We have upstreamed our kernel patches (mainly to fix GCC 5/6/7/8 compatibility) to Halium so we can use a shared kernel for our targets. Talking about new devices we’ve been working on: Since Google dropped the (budget) Nexus line and launched the (premium) Pixel line, we’ve been looking for other targets that are easily available, budget friendly and have good community support. We quickly ended up with Xiaomi which makes phones with decent specs, unlockable bootloader (the process is a bit tedious, but it’s do-able) and the phones give very good value for money. This has resulted in us independently working on 3 different Xiaomi devices being the RedMi Note 4x (Mido), RedMi 5 (Rosy) and Mi A1 (Tissot).  These are all Aarch64 devices using the Snapdragon 625 chipset. We didn’t have any Aarch64 devices before and also they are based upon Halium 7.1 (Android 7.1) while all our previous targets were based upon Halium 5.1 (Android 5.1), so this brought a whole bunch of new challenges. There are still a few rough edges, but audio, sensors, wifi and bluetooth are now working. There was also quite some porting work done for some of the other Halium supported targets such as the OnePlus X (onyx), Google/Huawei Nexus 6P (angler) and Motorola G4 (athene). These are currently in various stages of development, whereby OnePlus X is the most mature. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a strategic device for us which we chose in cooperation with LG to work on to get LuneOS working and also as a target for LG’s webOS OSE (Open Source Edition). LG’s release of webOS OSE came as a surprise to us, however it has great potential. Though the initial release of webOS OSE was very limited and therefore limited use case for people not being very familiar with webOS, it does offer a lot of potential for us. webOS OSE is basically 5 years of development of the core webOS bits since Open webOS was released. It has been deployed in millions of LG TV’s since and offers great improvements in terms of reliability and functionality. The big downside however is that there’s no record of the changes between Open webOS and webOS OSE, so this is making the migration a bit more challenging. Early June the LuneOS team met with LG in Paris to discuss collaboration between our teams. As a result of this we have chosen the Xiaomi A1 as a device to port LuneOS to. This is now at a level similar to our other targets. After this release we will therefore focus on migrating our Open webOS components to the updated components provided by webOS OSE. This will bring quite some challenges and hurdles along the way, however we’re positive that we can complete this migration and it will bring a lot of improvements in terms of code quality, stability, functionality and reducing the need for maintaining a lot of these components ourselves since we can share a common codebase with LG’s webOS OSE going forward. LG has a very clear vision in mind for webOS. Since the initial release in March, a roadmap has been published and LG has pushed out 4 releases since the original release of webOS OSE. The following items on our to-do list will be where we focus next: Migration of Open webOS components to the newer webOS OSE components. Make the VirtualBox image work with a newer MESA. Migrate to Yocto Sumo/Thud release. Messaging improvements. Camera improvements. Fix known issues on the various targets. Bring back official support for Touchpad 4G (current build works on Touchpad 4G but only WiFi). Known issues: Node-SQLite3 is currently not working. Components using Node-SQLite3 have switched to an alternative storage method for now. Focus bug on input fields. You can work around this by hiding the virtual keyboard and pressing the input again. Random issue with virtual keyboard not showing on Aarch64 devices.

Sign up for the bug tracker 2. Get involved and 3. Join the mailing list Download and Install Feel free to download the updated builds to get started. Tenderloin, Mako, Hammerhead and Tissot remain our focus for now, but the emulator, Mido & Rosy work too. Please note that in order to use the latest stable builds Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) you need to flash the CM 12.1 images first using CWM/TWRP. In order to do so, you might be required to do a “factory reset” or at least “wipe cache”. CWM/TWRP will indicate when this is needed. After successfully flashing CM 12.1, make sure to boot it at least once before going back to CWM/TWRP to flash the latest LuneOS image! We have provided links to CM 12.1 for these 3 images on our device pages below. Installation instructions for TouchPad (Tenderloin), Nexus 4 (Mako), Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) and Emulator are on the wiki. And remember we don’t do timelines. Don’t forget to contact us with any questions and feel free to join the discussion on the webOS Nation forums. Catch us on Twitter @webosports on IRC: Freenode:#webos-ports or email [email protected] We will see you shortly again with a new release! Picture Credit: Chevanon. Cropped & flipped. Text added.

    • 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 to the reminder going off to see if the TV is on. if it is not on then don't action the reminder thus not turning the TV on. twice now have been woken during the night to find the TV on. please fix in next release and advise.   2. Also, can you add a page in settings.  general. about TV. upgrade. what's been updated. a histotical list of changes. this would be ideal as it would advise both bug fixes and new features.   3. Also the favourites feature is very hard to organise. For example if I add a new channel to favourites1 it will go to the bottom of the list. However the swap feature is useless if you want to move this channel to say the second position. This is a problem because you are expecting us to swap 2 channels when on reality we need to move 1 channel from the bottom to say the 3rd slot WITHOUT changing any others. We don't want to swap the channel in position 2 with that in last position.

    • LG TV OF TOMORROW WITH THINQ AND α (ALPHA) PROCESSOR

      SEOUL, Jan. 3, 2018 — At CES 2018, LG Electronics (LG) will raise the home entertainment experience to another level with the introduction of ThinQ® artificial intelligence (AI) and an advanced image processor in its newest OLED and SUPER UHD TVs. ThinQ allows the implementation of hundreds of voice requests utilizing the company’s own open smart platform as well as third-party AI services. With AI functionality embedded in their TVs, LG customers can speak directly into the remote control to enjoy all the convenient features of today’s advanced voice assistant technology. LG’s ThinQ TVs also function as smart home hubs, offering access to other smart home products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and many other devices that can connect to the TV via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. And with LG’s newest α (Alpha) 9 processor powering the company’s market-leading OLED TVs, viewers will experience further improvements in what many already consider to be the best TV picture quality. LG Nano CellTM SUPER UHD TVs employ Full-Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlighting to provide deeper blacks and enhanced colors, as well as nuanced shadow details for life-like images. Transforming Modern Lifestyle Through Intelligence LG’s ThinQ offers an enhanced interactive experience in the company’s newest smart TV lineup, including OLED and SUPER UHD TV models by employing Natural Language Processing (NLP) to deliver intelligent voice-activated control and connectivity based on LG’s own deep learning technology, DeepThinQ. With a dramatically streamlined setup process, viewers can easily and quickly connect to gaming consoles and external soundbars. Users can search for information, images or videos featuring specific content by making a verbal request through the TV’s remote control such as “show me all the movies this actor has starred in” or “show me yoga videos”. LG TVs with ThinQ AI supports services based on Electronic Program Guide (EPG) to deliver information in real time or change to a channel that offers the content requested. Instruct the TV to “search for the soundtrack of this movie” or “turn off the TV when this program is over” without repeating the name of the program or entering a specific time. What’s more, customers in certain countries will be able to utilize the Google Assistant to control smart home devices such as lights or activate third-party services. Picture Quality Close to Perfection LG’s newest α (Alpha) 9 intelligent processor provides true-to-life images with incredibly rich colors, sharpness and depth for more realism. A core innovative element of the α (Alpha) 9 is the four-step process of noise reduction, which boasts twice as many steps compared to conventional techniques. This algorithm allows for greater finesse in noise reduction, improving the clarity of images affected by distracting artifacts and enabling more effective rendering of smooth gradations. The processor also improves color performance, thanks to the advanced mapping capabilities make colors look closer than ever to the original content. The improved color correction algorithm allows for more natural colors by expanding the reference color coordinates seven-fold compared to before. α (Alpha) 9 is designed to support high frame rate (HFR) for producing smoother and clearer motion images at 120 frames per second for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. As a result of the new image processor, 2018 LG OLED TVs can display any content at maximum quality for a truly spectacular viewing experience. Maximizing Nano Cell with FALD Backlight and α (Alpha) 7 In 2017, LG made a significant achievement toward its highly ambitious vision for producing the ultimate LCD TV picture through its Nano Cell SUPER UHD TVs. By combining Nano Cell, FALD backlighting and the α (Alpha) 7 processor, LG’s 2018 SUPER UHD TV offers a host of technological advantages including deeper blacks, enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and accurate color from wide viewing angles. This year’s SUPER UHD TV with FALD allows for denser backlighting zones throughout the display, contrary to edge-lighting where backlights are positioned on the edges behind the TV panel. LG’s technology improves black levels and picture dimensions by independent control of LED light zones, improving shadow details and reducing light bleeding resulting in enhanced contrast and superb picture quality. Best Possible 4K Cinema HDR Experience 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TVs from LG feature 4K Cinema HDR, which introduces a truly cinematic experience to the home, regardless of the format. LG’s 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TVs add support for Advanced HDR by Technicolor, building on a legacy of supporting most major HDR formats, from the superior viewing experience of Dolby VisionTM to HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). LG’s 2018 OLED and SUPER UHD TVs process HDR images dynamically frame by frame using LG’s proprietary algorithm, Enhanced Dynamic Tone mapping. Both 2018 OLED TVs and SUPER UHD TVs come with Dolby Atmos object-based surround sound for the best audio-visual experience possible. “LG is continually seeking to innovate in home entertainment and LG ThinQ along with the α (Alpha) 9 processor will deliver a TV viewing experience that is unrivaled in the industry,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “At LG, our interest is in improving user lifestyles and convenience, which our 2018 TVs amply deliver.” Visitors to CES can experience LG’s TVs of the future for themselves at booth #11100 in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

    • LG released the world's largest 88-inch 8K OLED TV to be unveiled at CES 2018

      Translated to English via Google Translate from https://www.ettoday.net/news/20180102/1084276.htm   On the eve of the CES, LG Electronics, a technology leader in home appliance products, preemptively released a number of products including the latest 88-inch 8K TV before the launch of CES 2018, but due to the OLED panel The TV has become the world's largest 88-inch 8K OLED TV, is expected to be equipped with the latest WebOS system. LG Electronics' biggest rival, Samsung Electronics, introduced an upgraded version of its quantum dot technology on the new TV product line during CES 2017 and slammed it into the new series of QLED TVs with a 98-inch 8K resolution top-of-the- Press exhibition of the first-line TV brand. From a price point of view, LG's OLED TV is still not Samsung's QLED okay to the United States sold LG 77-inch 4K OLED, for example, priced at 20,000 US dollars, but Samsung's 88-inch 4K QLED TV is also 20,000 US dollars. Perhaps in order to still color, LG Electronics once again pushed its OLED panel technology, the first in the eve of CES 2018 launched 8K resolution OLED TV, and the size will be the world's largest 88-inch, related products, technical details and characteristics Without further explanation, LG has already forecasted that the product will be on display during CES 2018, and further news may be released at that time.
