I'm loving this ROM - if only I could get this Market thing sorted, I'd be completely happy :)

Agreed. This ROM is great apart from the market issues. 
I tried "[APK] Google Play Store v3.5.16 + MOD" but it kept crashing.
Also tried the HD market fix

CdTDroiD: Hows everyone going with this? still using it?


Mate this rom is #1!

I will never go back to a Samsung rom ever again. No pressure :P but I truly hope you can find the time and energy to keep this rom updated moving forward as it has literally relifed my S2

Once again, many thanks for your fine efforts to this point!

CdTDroiD: Hows everyone going with this? still using it?

I loved it. It was a great push to get into CM9 and worked pretty well. I used LCD Density Modder Pro (NZD3.79 on the market) to sort out the market and it worked perfectly the whole time. I used to use it all the time to adjust lcd density on GB roms, but ics seems to break it. I just use the tweaked market and google services framework the app provides to get around the market issues. It works perfectly on CM9 and Samsung based roms.

The only thing I missed was call recording. I normally use Omega (ICS) and like many of the older GB roms it's baked into the phone app, making it very simple to use. I couldn't really find anything that worked the same and I use it on a weekly/bi weekly basis. Unfortunately it's a feature I couldn't do without.

I also felt, and it may well be just me, that the CM9 camera wasn't up to the same level as stock. I use mine a lot (three young kids, school holidays...) and it seemed I was getting blurrier pics than I normally would have. I'm quite happy to accept I may well be wrong here, but the combination of the two sent me reluctantly back to Samsung based roms.


I loved the CM9 experience and will happily go back to it once I sort out the call recording. Still looking for that simple yet elusive call recorder (happy to pay for one if anyone has suggestions)...
Thanks for providing us with your tweaked version to play with. It was well worth the experience.

Will this solve the issue I am having with not being able to see many apps that should work on ICS. The market almost always says the app is not compatible with my device.

If so a few instructions on how to set this up would be hugely appreciated.

This sounds awesome. I ended up going back to XXLPQ last night, but if the above stuff works then I'll come back to CM9NZ!

I can confirm LCD Density Modder pro works to fix the market issue.

1) Install the app.
2) Run it and select Fix market Compatibility issues
3) Press Download Modded Play Store and wait for it to download
4) Press Download Modded GSF
5) Press install mods (dont do this without downloading both the Modded Play Store and Modded GSF)
6) Reboot as prompted.

Optional

7) if play store app is missing after reboot go back into LCD density modder
8) Select fix market compatability
9) Kill play store (This may be skipped)
10) Open play store

Even after reboot My Apps weren't showing up in the market. I just downloaded a new, random app then rebooted again and all My Apps were there.

You were too quick for me!

I probably don't have to mention this, but before you do anything, make a back-up. :)

The standard setting is 240dpi. If you don't really want to play with the lcd density just set it at 230, it's such a small change that you'd be lucky to spot it in most situations. Personally I like 192, gives the phone a nice HD kind of look. I tend to view a lot of text so it makes it much easier to read this way.

When installing the two files you'll probably see errors relating to maps and possibly other google apps as well but don't worry, they're fine. Just click through them and continue.

I will have to have a play around with these settings. Thanks for letting us know about this app. Now this Rom is awesome and I have 0 complaints.

No worries. I can't stand stock dpi settings now, everything is just too big for me!

What's your opinion on the camera? As good as stock? Nobody really replied so I'm not sure if it's just me or not...

I only got this phone about a week ago and had it 30 min before i switched to this rom so I can't comment sorry.
Camera seems fine to me in this rom but that is comparing it to my Nexus One

You're a legend! I waited two weeks before rooting and starting to look at custom roms, that was last May though and the phone had only just been released.

Wow thanks for that the Apex launcher looks great... Thank you - you may have just saved my warranty (for now at least)
