    Don’t worry about the Gio update. You did a great job with beta9 we can wait for the camera update 🙂

    Any normal person understands how much hard work you have done. Any normal person understands that there are bugs. The rest – it is ungrateful stupid idiots. They do not need to pay attention, I think.

    just a simple question, will this update contain also the option to add the gps location? keep-up the great work !!!

  • RevHacker says:

    Why downloads for mini and fit are not available ?

    • dark'em says:

      case Maclow will buy the mini on the 25th and he is working on AOSP and cm9 so he had to started with Ace and Gio case from what I hurd they are wery similar phones (there like brothers:D ) and if he perfects one then it’s easyar to perfect the other…but don’t worry cm9 will be available for mini and fit

  • Chris says:

    I’m not sure where the photos I take are going. Are they going in a different folder from the DCIM folder?

  • jav says:

    Again, thanks a lot for your hard work.

  • Deepanshu says:

    Hey dude i appreciate your work a lot but the only thing that bugs me is that once you take a picture in CM9 beta 9 you gotta reboot your phone or media scan again for the photo to view in the gallery is their any fix for it or is it a bug which will be fixed in beta 10 thanks and keep up the hard work

  • nismo says:

    the update for gio is working, you have to:
    flash the .zip
    unpack the camera.apk from the zip and install it.

    and will work.

    • dark'em says:

  • Jonny says:

  • Roman91 says:

    hey maclaw,
    When i flashed the new beta camera was working, but after the update gio.zip (flashed via recovery) it’s no more working. I tried to install only the apk file, but the version is always 1.0 and i can’t do it. any ideas?

    • Gustav says:

      Just as remco said: unzip the file and install as a regular apk. It works!

      Maclaw, Marcin et al: huge thanks for your work! Beta 9 is far better, and the battery life has really been improved. =)

  • Daniël says:

    thnx guys you are great!!

  • Daniel S says:

    Dear Maclaw,
    Apps like Flashlight use the Camera Hardware to access LED near the Camera lens and turn it on. I know that you had to develop all the needed libs to access the camera, so it will be normal that those apps can’t access the Camera Light through Legacy ways, is it possible to develop a simple LED flashlight for the phone?

    Regards and keep the good work

  • Hydragon1 says:

    I Will wait Maclaw dont worry do your best That is The only thing you can do
    I know you never let us down

    I respect you and again thx for all your very great work
