there are some news on Gingerbread for the Motorola Milestone.
The developer of the CyanogenMod port for the Motorola Milestone – nadlabak – has stated on his page (http://android.doshaska.net/cm6) that he is working on the gingerbread port for the Motorola Milestone.
I’m working on it (albeit slowly) – see the gingerbread branches at https://github.com/nadlabak
Current status: it boots, wifi and battery charging works. No gsm/umts yet. New sensor interface is in progress but not fully working yet.
The whole CM is moving to gingerbread, the repos are receiving tens of commits everyday by many great developers involved.
Be patient, there’s still a lot of work to be done.
So, let’s see what he will be coming up with und next fews days or weeks 🙂
i am using the latest version of CM6 on my Motorola Milestone. The one based on the G.O.T. sbf with the 2.2 test kernel.
I was experiencing a significant battery drain. The battery wouldn’t hold a whole day… 🙁
So i did a little analysis.
First i found a little hidden feature of Android. Go to the phone app and type: *#*#4636#*#*. This will bringt up some stats. Most interesting are the battery usage stats.
Here is saw that „Being executed“ („Wird ausgeführt“ in german) had 100%. That means that the Milestone didn’t go to deep sleep at all. So i tried to find out why. There is another stats screen titled „usage in partial sleep mode“ or something like that („Verwendung im Teilwachzustand“ in german). There i saw „Facebook“ with nearly 70% of all apps that were listed there.
So i went to the facebook app and deactivated the notifications (which didn’t work for me anyway). And the problem was fixed. The Milestone is now going into deep sleep normally and the battery drain is gone 🙂
Hope that helps many of you out there suffering under the battery drain!
