Title: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on February 18, 2011, 04:52:22 AM
I know this is kinda of a lame idea, but maybe you could make the lite version with nothing installed, and just have people intall stuff from the repo?   Cuz I wanted a lite version just for multitasking, so I deleted the folders, installed backgrounder and curcuitios (as well as thier dependancies), and I now can run 12 apps and only then be below 30mb free mem.   I was thinking this would be good to cover all bases for a lite version.   I idle around 75 mb after I free mem when I'm done multitasking.   So, maybe put the modded curcuitios in the repo for people who want a free memory tool and stuff as an example of what to put.


I don't know, I'm thinking this would be good for people who only want one or two things and such, and for that to work really well.   (backgrounds, folders, multitasking, activator, etc)

I think Lite is fine with folders, it's easy to uninstall. Adding the circuitous would be nice

I know,  I'm just saying for those who only want to use it for one purpose, they could chose what that is.

Side question.   Is this post under the announcments?   It is for me on the mobile forum...

it's a good idea. will make everything a lot easier for the new people. but if we did this, we would need to work on repo A LOT more.
also, if this was done, people would get instant cydia updates for add-ons  :twisted:

I could work on some debs, and plists (to take out the need for preference loader.)

But then on the other side of this thought, there are those who would just want it ready, but then again, what is the ready they want?

Even with my god powers on accidentally putting this post in the announcements, no one seems to be voting much  :|

I think lite was faster.  I did delete them, but it didn't have 77mb free ever :O

I like Lite packaged just the way it is.  We can't have a "blank" Whited00r because then we are moving away from what Whited00r is, that is a iOS3 clone of iOS4 for the older devices.

Well, a make it yourself whited00r.  But I do see where you are coming from.
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Gawernator on February 25, 2011, 02:07:42 AM
I dunno.  I leave that up to MattewRE
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on February 25, 2011, 03:35:46 AM
Ik :P
I'm actually thinking just put all the features of whited00r on the repo (special plists, modded dependancies, etc).  So you can add what you want to the lite version.   Maybe keep the folders in....

That would be cool. I went total traitor and installed Multifl0w, I like it.

Post by: Bruan on February 26, 2011, 08:20:09 PM
It is pretty sweet.  It takes up a lot of memory though  :(
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Gawernator on February 26, 2011, 09:08:15 PM
Well, it's actually smoother and faster than Circuitous and Darlo's multitasker.  I don't know about that...
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on February 26, 2011, 10:27:08 PM
Ehhhh....  I like it alot too :P
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Gawernator on February 27, 2011, 06:10:44 AM
I thought circuitous was the worst of the three by far

why delete darlos multitasking for a lame circuitous?..haha. :P .darlo did a lot of effort to make this stuff ...it is sad to say that even you the developer of wintersled did not patronize the work of your fellow developer here in whited00r!.. :evil:
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on February 27, 2011, 02:16:52 PM
I had darlos installed too :|
i just needed something to tell me how much free memory I had and to free up memory

Well, I'm actually gonna make one.   Fun.   This is just for those that have trouble with whited00r.   Its quite simple really.

Yeah, thats what I told him  :lol:

<Mon Apr 11, 2011 3:38 pm> [hr:3n2co7fx][/hr:3n2co7fx]

Well, most of the features are available via the repo :P  I'll have Phil upload the older backgrounder.
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: JustinCase on April 20, 2011, 02:16:49 AM
I don't think that is a good idea cause if you were gonna do that then you could just install stock 3.1.3 JB it and install the stuff from the repo without having WD installed
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on April 21, 2011, 02:52:47 PM
It installes the whited00r custom settings so it says whited00r 4.3 or something (need to update it although it has all the features of the latest release before Matt made the fw)

I suppose if you realy wanted that
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on April 21, 2011, 05:15:39 PM
it is for those who just want to be able to install whited00r without needing to restore and all that stuff :P

Yeah, it is the lazy route, and its not as good, but hey, I just make it, not use it :P

i still use full and delete some parts of it
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on April 21, 2011, 07:04:21 PM
I normally use 4.2 lite, and just remove folders and update it manually.

i don't care much about which firmware, I only care about the functionality of some parts.
Also I really need backgrounding (:
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: JustinCase on April 24, 2011, 08:25:04 PM
I always stick to the full version
Title: Re: Lite version idea

Yeh, full and delete the unnecessary = less work than installing them on the lite  :D
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: JustinCase on April 25, 2011, 02:15:16 AM
Exactly ;)

Accept I do more installing

heh, me, im doing the oposite, using lite, and installing wallpaper on it :D

thats the good part of having 2 different FW types, some people want to install more , some want to uninstall more.
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Alavi on April 25, 2011, 07:33:21 PM
Yeah, about that, i agree. Although i think we should have only full version, but make Uninstalling stuff from cydia possible. That way we can all have what we want, and having one version released will not only be easyer for matt, but for troubleshooting also... And not to mention any new members that don't understand what the difference is exacly :)
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Bruan on April 25, 2011, 10:31:28 PM
Exactly what I would like.  Thats the only way I use 4.2 lite, b/c I dont like everything.
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: Gawernator on April 26, 2011, 01:48:11 AM
I use full out of the box but update the debs manually.. You can just update folders Brian no need to remove first
Title: Re: Lite version idea
Post by: RagingNinja on April 26, 2011, 03:32:52 AM
By the way Brian. Would you send me any and ALL .debs you  have made or want uploaded to the WD Universal Upload Account?

OR If you want to make it easier... upload them yourself.

Look in the whited00r meeting section for username and password for mediafire account.

Post by: Bruan on April 26, 2011, 04:36:52 PM
I started with some things.    I uploaded the older backgrounder, and might add a few things :P
