webOSroundup: Cyanogenmod9 Alpha 1 Released!!

1 post in this topic

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.
