webOSroundup: Cyanogenmod9 Alpha 1 Released!!


News Reporter

Recommended Posts

We 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 .

      SEOUL, July 7, 2022 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced its preliminary earnings results for the second quarter of 2022.
      LG reported revenues of KRW 19.5 trillion in the second quarter of 2022, 15 percent higher than the same quarter the previous year. Operating profit for the second quarter was KRW 791.7 billion, expected to be 12 percent lower than the same quarter of the previous year.
      LG Electronics terminated production and sales of solar panel at the end of June this year and is treating the performance of solar business as a discontinued operating loss from the second quarter 2022 earnings announcement. Applying the same standards from the second quarter of 2022 to the same period last year, LG would have recorded a revenue of KRW 16.9 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 900.1 billion.
      These figures are the tentative consolidated earnings based on K-IFRS provided as a service to investors prior to LG Electronics’ final earnings results including net profit. Details regarding each division which will be announced officially later this month.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      hello, 

      Got a new 86nano75SQA
       
      google assistance BUILT in works fine - and if i ask it to play a video it does.

      But external google assistance on my google devices, only turns the TV on and off, and opens apps..

      I cant for instance say "Play big bang theory on LG TV"

      Or it says "I also need to know which device to use. try saying that again, and include the device's name"

      Can anyone do this? is it it expected it works? works fine with the built in assistant, but not external ones

      The first week of June, which presents International Children’s Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5), reminded us of the importance of caring for our world and its children. To properly commemorate these universal holidays and live up to LG’s steadfast commitment to CSR activities that inspire positive change, LG Kazakhstan enlisted the help of 40 children from the Almaty Regional Orphanage to make a difference in their own backyard, and hopefully learn while having heaps of fun in the process.

      The enthusiastic children selected which trees they wanted to plant in the garden, and now fifty apple, plum, apricot, cherry and pear trees are growing there and will eventually provide fresh fruit on their doorstep. Plant specialists were also on site to teach the kids which practices lead to the richest harvest and greenest environment. What’s more, to commemorate International Children’s Day, every hard-working child received a memorable souvenir as a reminder of the amazing work they did that day.

      LG Kazakhstan champions sustainable development and social responsibility through the implementation of environmental practices and charity events that improve the quality of life for locals. Recent initiatives such as LG Blood Donations Day, various CSR educational lectures for students and LG Prima Nota Fest ­­– a nationwide classical music contest for children – demonstrate LG’s tireless efforts towards creating a better life for all.

      A company must fulfill its environmental and social responsibilities to nurture a flourishing ecosystem that benefits all. Introducing technologies that minimize its carbon footprint during manufacturing and implementing inclusive solutions are deeply embedded in LG’s core value, and the company will never falter when it comes to innovating new solutions that help solve the world’s technological and social issues.
