Loving this rom so much better to use the G16 now thanks for your work Skelton 8)

You are welcome. Probably the best part of the ROM is not the rom itself, but the possibility to use CWM, The nandroid backups work perfect, which is essential to me because I can try new flashing and testing mods easily. :)

Is anyone using the very latest FPse on there G16 with this rom... just thought I would ask as I get bad stuttering audio, and I don't recall it being that bad before I'm also using Antutu CPU Master to get best performance out this device buy setting the CPU min and max to 1008Mhz and the option to performace and set on boot that way the cpu is not up and down like a yoyo lol

BTW Kainy as been updated to a really good state so I might do a video of it streaming a PC game to the G16,
Was thinking of Descent Ultimate as that's the only game I have install at the moment... what do you think?

Ruffnutts, the last versions of FPSE have a terrible audio, it comes with SPuSYNC option on that must be disabled for most games. I am using EPSXE for PSX emulation and seems to work much better to me than FPSE.

Unfortunately yes, it's a paid app. But in my opinion it's better actually than FPSE. It's a very promising emulator.

I have tested in the s602, and at least in s602 works good, though it's a bit hard to configure, in the G16 I haven't tested yet.

If my memory is OK, I think we have to press menu button to enter advanced options or something like that and configure the plugin, it must be done when a game is running.

Ok I will check it out as I did that and some options came up when using the standard settings...

One little thing Ive noticed with this ROM.

When the screen is tilted in portrait mode the pad controls no longer align to the screen mode.

They did it in stock rom? Because I haven't changed anything in buttons. Maybe is a launcher issue.

I just flashed stock rom, and buttons are the same than in Skelrom, they work the same way. In stock rom they are inverted in portrait too, so it's the same,

My mistake, sorry skelton.

I think I must have confused it with my Android phone which has a 4 way keypad and auto aligns the pad in landscape/portrait mode.

Is there an easy way to add this function to the g16?

@widd

You can try to Google it- I remember there are many sources for G16 as it is an old device. I remember some guy called Snake-men are good at doing on G16. You can search on Google and ask him. Or maybe Skelton can help. It will be better. ;)

Thanks wilgoo.

Unfortunately my g16 died today, all I get is a battery exclamation then it shuts down.  :'(

edit:

Went back to the stock G16 gingerbread rom and now it boots again!
Back to square one, meh.

edit2:

Ok I'm going through the process again to get back to Skeltons' excellent Skelrom v1.

One thing Ive discovered that might be important is to run a battery calibration after flashing the ICS rom.
This will reset the batterystats file and may prevent the !Battery Warning! boot fail?
