долго мучился с паролем ты уверен что верно его написал??

Where is the update.zip Ewra Rom? You're linking to the old ewra.zip . Should i just rename it? (running 2.2.2 and CW recovery)
until is not available,but you must flash it from sdcard via recovery ;) use my restore script
Successfully (?) installed via fastboot/adb. Rom looks great, only problem so far : cannot install an alternative keyboard and i REALLY need it as greek is not installed by default (tried htc_ime and Go Keyboard). They appear on the Settings>Keyboard list, but not when you press and hold Input Method :( When you go back to Settings the 2nd keyboard appears unchecked. As if something is not saved properly.
wait a few minutes,I'll test Swype keyboard
I'm just install Swype and check it as default keyboard,then I reboot and Swype no uncheked(set from Input Method)
Ok, I'll try rebooting. Another thing I noticed; kernel's running on conservative by default, I had to use SetCPU to set it to performance (ot990 is too slow for anything else, lag is noticeable). Not sure if that was intentional or not.
I don't not use these apps,because easier for me in order to save work with shell scripts
Then I guess you should find the corresponding line in the script that controlls the CPU Governor and edit accordingly!
am I should find? why?=Dif I know what can do for it,and I added command for control CPU governor in ramdisk and set as default ;) also I know where can set this governor in scripts of init.dand it is at my discretion
To set things straight; I never suggested you use SetCPU. As soon as I installed the ROM i noticed it was lagging, A LOT. So i run CPU Spy to check the states and alas, it was running at sub-optimal cycles. SetCPU just helped me run the governor on performance and at either 600mhz or Deep Sleep (the 'default' Alcatel way). I am helping you out here, not trying to force you to install any apps (?!). In response to your "discretionary" message now, you consciously wanted a phone with an underperforming processor to run on conservative governor? It felt slower than the G1 at times! (conservative tended to drop the cpu to 122-300Mhz, only rarely going to full 600Mhz). Another thing,apart from the inability to use an alternative keyboard, Brightness settings are also not saved. I use a widget to control brightness but it refuses to work with this rom. I sense it's a problem with permissions or something wrong in your "shell scripts". logs: https://pastee.org/urfmv < Keyboard not found, it's looking at the wrong directory, note this line:I/XT9_C ( 2305): File "/data/data/jonasl.ime/udb" does not exist.https://pastee.org/s334a < Brightness-related log. I don't honestly know what's wrong here.
Then look at the config.gz of kernel next firmware (2.3.4), where you can see that the default mode of cpu the performance?also look at tuning conservative, which I ordered in a shell script, it is not "conservative tended to drop the cpu to 122-300Mhz, only rarely going to full 600Mzh"cpufreq_ondemandDynamically switches between the CPU(s) available clock speeds based on system loadcpufreq_performanceThe performance governor runs the CPU(s) at maximum clock speedcpufreq_conservativeSimilar to ondemand, but the CPU(s) clock speed switches gradually through all its available frequencies based on system loadcpufreq_powersaveRuns the CPU(s) at minimum speedcpufreq_userspaceManually configured clock speeds by user"I/XT9_C ( 2305): File "/data/data/jonasl.ime/udb" does not exist."/data - a custom section for user,and if there is a problem,the problem is in the installed programs"I sense it's a problem with permissions or something wrong in your "shell scripts". " - and what is worth seeing?In logs do not have what belongs to the bugs of the system
Made a short 1min vid of the brightness/keyboard/camera issue @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob6bNJ252XQ&hd=1
Note: All the errors you see in that video were fixed after rebooting to recovery and wiping cache! Sorry for being such a pain Sergey, and thanks for a great ROM :)
So you say there is no problems at all after wiping cache ?
Yes. Keyboard/Brightness/Front-facing camera all work as expected. No FCs so far either
Hello. It would be nice to write a tutorial how to install ewra rom , examp , go to fast boot by pressing volume down+power button ..... as many people are not yet enough in to android and flashing.After instaling ewra rom are we able to get back to original rom via One Touch Upgrade ?Thanks.

So little late but here we go , this is tutorial how to install Ewra rom on Alcatel OT 990First of all be patient and do not hurry with anything !!!1. download and install drivers for pc from here :a. http://www.alcatelonetouch.com/global-en/downloads/pcsuite/alcatel-androidmanager-2-2-1204-365.exeb. http://www.alcatelonetouch.com/global-en/downloads/otu/one-touch-upgrade-q-1-9-4-setup.exe2. download and unpack Ewra zip archive from here :http://x-ewra.blogspot.com/p/ewra01.html3. turn off your phone and than turn it on by holding VOLUME DOWN + POWER button , after few seconds phone will vibrate than release power button but hold volume down button few more seconds4. your screen will remain black , connect your phone to pc with usb cable and click on "install" file inside the ewra folder wich we unpacked earlier5. small black window will start on your pc and after finishing install process window will close but do not touch the phone and do not remove usb cable until you see battery charging on your phone6. when you see battery charging on phone screen you can remove usb cable and turn on the phone7. now you have Ewra rom on you OT 990 , hold the power button and phone will ask you few things than choose the recovery8. when you get in recovery scroll up/down with volume up/volume down button and select option with home button , use back button to return to previous menu9. few things we need to do in recovery mod :a. scroll down to wipe data than select and confirm to wipe all datab. scroll down to wipe cache than select and confirm to wipe all cachec. scroll down to advanced than select wipe dalvik cache and confirm to wipe all dalvik cached. use button back until you see on top reboot system now10. Congratulations now you have EWRA rom the best rom for OT 990 so far .And sure thanks to Sergey for his work making this rom to us.also here is video tutorial how to install ewra rom on OT 990 :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA3IzvLcQ-A&feature=youtu.be
thnx for manual^^ later I'll add it to main pageabout some bugs for you, if I found them at this rom for me, it did not upload to this firmware, so I'm sorry
Waiting for Ewra 0.2!!
Sergey if you are working on ewra update please check the bug with brightnes button in widget it starts to not work for me too also wi fi connection is working i mean i can connect to my wifi but cant get acess to the internet , all of this bugs are repaired after i reboot the phone but after some time the bugs came again.
about bug for brightness:can you delete line from /system/etc/init.d/99quisy "busybox chmod 0444 /data/system/usagestatsbusybox chmod 0444 /data/tombstones" maybe it is the reasonwi fi - more details plz,I had no errors with itEwra 0.2 coming soon ;)
I reinstaled the rom, entered in CWM, deleted cash, data, dalvick cash and all bugs are gone ... No brightness or wifi error ...
About wifi : i connect on my wifi router i get ip and everything seems ok but market says no connection retry all the time , also with opera i get errors could not connect to server if i try to do google search than i shutdown the phone turn it on and after that everything is ok.
probably, our problem is dns, can we check this out somehow?
Sergey how can we set bootanimation in Ewra rom ?Where to place bootanimation.zip ?Thanks.
/custpack/JRD_custres/mediaand delete line from build.prop or change value"debug.sf.nobootanimation=1" on "0"
I try to put custom bootanimation.zip to /custpack/JRD_custres/media and i deleted the debug.sf.nobootanimation=1 line in build.prop but no animation , also i try to put bootanimation.gif and deleted bootanimation.zip from ../media but still no custom animation only when i deleted bootanimation.zip i get some android text animation ... ? Where can be a problem?Thanks.
Try it only with change values and bootanimation.zipSo,after as you delete this line and not put new user animation,are the stock bootanimatoin.zip worked or on?If you have the problem with wi fi now,can you mast try fix permissions:load in recoveryset the advancedset the fix permissionsI think it should help
Hi now i have android text glow bootanimation and i dont know where is that from because i dont have any files in the custpack/JRD_custres/mediaI dont have wifi issues anymore but if thay came up again i'll try to fix permissions and let u know about that.
