Currently running Urukdroid 1.6RC7 on my A70-8 and it is running well. RC7 is about the same as the final version according to $aur0n. Have it OC to 1100000 with max_vsel=68. Running better that it ever has. Still no iPad but it works. Testing with Angry Birds is smooth. Flash playback is pretty good but it seems to be browser dependent. When I install 1.6 final it will be a full format to gain back the memory currently taken by the other OS files.

Any noticeable difference in battery life?

It did not "kill" the battery life. I haven't noticed a real difference. At least it shuts off now unlike the updates between 4.19 and 4.81. I can run tunein radio by the stock browser all day at work. The screen stays on all day. Its about drained after 8 hours. I had the tunein app which would work with the screen off but it broke and it will not reinstall.

Up and running with UD 1.6 after a full wipe. With overclock to 1.1ghz Quadrant peaked at 1834, linpack around 17. Pretty nice.

Am i the only one having random crashes? First i installed it with biggest partitions it crashed a lot, then after full wipe installed with defaut sizes it randomly reboots. I have 250gig A70H

Quick question, if i wanna use for instance iGO with UD where should i put maps, with stock rom u put it on root/igo but if for ud it has to be on ext partitions then its too small.

I would think /sdcard/igo is the directory you want, but haven't used that app.

As far as reboots... I have had very very few with previous versions of UD and none with 1.6 so far. I did end up scrapping overclock due to some apps not running correctly.

Are you copying the existing data partition during installation?

I have tried "sd card" folder but no luck, in stock android it works on root, i took igo as example just need to know where to put data ive seen many apps packaged with "sd" files that should be extracted to root

I dont remember whether im copying data partition i choose the recomended option on that, i just install uruk and market with gappinstaller maybe market is the issue or some of gapp apps will reinstall tonight..

For what its worth, I install the market with Arctools thats on Appslib. Its probably not related to your problem.

Just to be clear, root is /, on board storage (where i think your folder should go) is /sdcard, and the external sdcard is /sdcard/sdcard. If you've tried /sdcard/igo, then im really not sure.

If you continue to have issues, write down all the options you select during install and post to XDA where the experts can help you out.

How do you think $auron will be able to help guys with the A70HD when no one stays long enough to help him find the solution?

Has anyone tried with firmware 2.4.82 ?

Today I upgraded Urukdroid from 1.6.2 to 1.6.3 and found firmware version changed from 2.4.81 to 2.4.82. One particular difference now felt is that wifi seems more stable in power save mode.

I recently installed UrukDroid 1.6 and in general feeling is very good.
But I have strange problem. I cannot enable overclock.
I have set corresponding entry in /etc/uruk.conf/cpugovernor file, but after rebooting overclocking is not enabled.
If I look into /lib/modules, I cannot see any overclock.ko module. Should it be there at all? Or maybe somewhere else?
I did not find any other user reporting such issue...
