Hello all!
I’m Macław, if you are here you probably remember my old development for Android.

Marcin poked me a few days ago and asked, if we could back to work on Android. I agreed to it in moment.

So we’re back, now as MaclawStudio – without Polish “ł” and without “s” at the end – who needs them?

Also I have some things, which I have to tell you, before we’ll start:
1. I never stolen TheWhisp or his team work. They used my sources at beggining and just modified them. I didn’t write they’ve stolen them, because sources were be at GitHub as opensource, so anyone could do with them anything. So, I never used TheWhisp work – you can belive me or not.
2. I don’t know if that project will be opensource. I don’t want situations like ealier, but also I don’t want to be “old Macław”. Must to think about it, waiting for your opinions also in comments.
3. I was doing a lot of things bad. Making ETAs, unifinished releases just to be better than other guys on XDA etc. It won’t happen again.
4. Now me and Marcin have school. We’ll try to making releases as frequent, as we’ll able to.
5. I removed my account from XDA and I won’t create a new one. Also I won’t create topics for our works. If someone wants, fell free to make one. Earn some thanks, cheers 😉
6. About money: if you want to donate us, feel free, but it isn’t needed. Donators and normal users are on the same right, don’t except I’ll do everything you want only because you’ve donated.
7. I promise you won’t see any wars with other developers. We’ll just focus on making good software. That’s one of causes that I won’t join XDA again.
8. I’ll try to answer to most comments on once a day. If you have something important, please, write at [email protected].

I think that’s all what I has to say. Waiting for your answer and other messages in comments.

And please, DON’T ASK FOR ETA. That was a cause of a lot of issues in our team and in Ace/Gio developers group. We’ll ignore every question about ETA.

Cheers guys, glad to be there again

    I think cyanogenmod 9 is gone. and focus on the cyanogenmod 10 as functional and comfortably. I want to know your thoughts about it))

    Cieszę się, że wróciłeś i urlop od tworzenia ROMów ci przysłużył.
    Zgodzę się z powyższym komentarzem – go CM10!

  • gagnes says:

    Good to see you back 🙂 hope a final release of your cm9.

  • dalibor says:

    welcome back. what are your plans? improving stability of CM9? polishing and improving CM10? I would move to CM10 this instant, if it would be ready for full time use without random reboots, full usability of wifi ang GPS, superuser fully functional and no problems with calls.

    are you somehow connected with Bieltv3 & Daredj working on this:

  • Marcos Cid de la Paz says:

    Will you start working on the HQ Drivers (IDK, possibly bassed on other compatible Samsung devices) if it’s possible?

    It’s good to see you around here, BTW.
    Here I’m waiting for your great development as always. 🙂

  • Malandirix says:

    Yessss nice to see you back! However,aafter you left i found a dev called ‘Bieltv3’ who made awesome roms I was wondering if you’d heard of him because you both do very similar roms and if you are going to work together?

  • Grzegorz says:

    Cuz theres still a few bugs for Ace here.
    Like data graph, battery consumption n battery accuracy.

  • Finally back on track !! I will Post your ROM on my website once you continued your project …….

  • system.img says:

    I really liked the Polish “ł”! XD

  • Chris says:

    That’s great news maclaw! I’ve been with you from the start, and it was sad to see you go! I’ve been using your CM10 release for a while, but it was too buggy for everyday use for me, so I went back to CM9 for a long time. The camera wasn’t perfect and I really needed it when I was away so I went back to CM7. I’m looking forward to getting back to CM9! or even CM10!! Good luck!

  • Chetan kate says:

    Thanxxx for coming back maclaw!!! M very very happy:):) welcome back:)

  • cbix says:

    As you should know you will have to release source code as soon as it’s a derivative work of a GPL software (like the kernel)… Thanks for your work, I hope there will be collaboration between many different devs!

  • Omkar Repal says:

    And here you go ! .. Possession started … Glad to see you back Champ …My Ace was missing your smooth ROM’s ,i am very excited about integration of Linaro you have said in your RC2 changelog … can we integrate Linaro in our CM9 cause already CM9 is in stable state so lets try to give a boost for CM9..

  • Giowner says:

    You’re back! Yeah! 😀

  • Michael says:

  • Kabir says:
