THIS THREAD HAS BEEN CLOSED. TO MUCH WILL CHANGE BETWEEN THIS VERSION AND THE CURRENT (AND SUBSEQUENT) PUBLIC VERSIONS TO WARRANT UPDATING THIS THREAD/TOPIC/POSTS. A NEW THREAD WILL ARRIVE SHORTLY. THANK YOU


Here is the ROM that I've been passing out on IRC for the past few days. It has finally reached a somewhat "completed" status, so I'm posting it here for the rest of the world to enjoy. This is deodexed EP1W, cleaned up significantly (>100MB of stuff removed), a few apps have been replaced with AOSP equivalents, a few minor mods that people like, and it also has a hacked EP1W kernel. After all of that, Retrokid223 was nice enough to theme it with the TW4 theme from the SGS2 for me, so it looks better than the stock theme.

Features/Changes
  • Deodexed
  • Debloated
  • TW4 Theme
  • AOSP MMS
  • AOSP Deskclock
  • CMWallpapers available
  • ADWLauncher as the default launcher
  • TW Email, Contacts, Calendar, Calculator, and Camera have been retained due to improved functionality over AOSP equivalents
  • Removed Gapps, install them from the Market
  • If you want root, install Superuser from the Market
  • Purchase and install Voodoo Control Plus for Voodoo Sound
Kernel Features
The kernel was hacked and put together by myself
  • EXT4 Support
  • Tweaked memory management scheme
  • Auto-root on boot (binary only, no Superuser app)
  • SDCard speed tweak
  • Changed ramdisk compression for slightly faster boot

Installation Instructions
  1. Backup your data before flashing any ROM
  2. Download the package of your choice and transfer it to your SDCard
  3. Flash the package in CWM and also wipe data. If you use the ROM/Kernel package with EXT4, it will wipe data for you, and you'll also be on EXT4 (/system, /data, /cache, /dbdata)
  4. Boot your phone and enjoy
  5. If you would like the latest modems, they are linked above as well

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get root access?
Download and install Superuser from the market. The su binary that is required should already be there via the kernel, all that is required is its complimentary application.

How do I install the ROM?
See the first post of this thread.

How do I go from XXX to this ROM?
The fastest way to go to this ROM from anything is by downloading and flashing the ROM+Kernel on EXT4 package. That will format your partitions to EXT4 and then install the kernel and ROM. Note that this will wipe all of your user data in the process, so be sure to backup anything you may want prior to flashing.

Where is Gmail, YouTube, Maps, etc.
All Google applications were removed from the ROM. This was to make sure that you are running an up-to-date version on your device and it also saves some bandwidth when the ROM is downloaded.

Does this kernel support Voodoo?
The kernel does not use the Voodoo Lagfix functions. However, it does fully support EXT4 partitions. Voodoo Lagfix is meant so partitions can be converted to and from RFS/EXT4. To do this, the boot process is slowed down for partition checks and conversion. To avoid this, I just enabled EXT4 support so you can still reap the benefits of the improved read/write capabilities without having to wait for the phone to boot up.

Voodoo sound is another matter entirely and can be enabled (in part) by using Voodoo Control Plus. This will allow you to load a beta Voodoo Sound driver that supports many of the functions of Voodoo Sound. Until source code is release for Gingerbread though, full Voodoo Sound support will be unavailable.

Does this kernel support overclocking?
No it does not. Source code will need to be released before many features, such as overclocking can be included.

Do you have plans to include XXX in your ROM?
See the below change log and planned features. If it is not listed in there anywhere, then odds are it is not something that we plan on including and doing. However, if you leave a message in the thread, we will consider implementing it in a future release.

I am having xxx issue, can you fix it?
We can certainly try, however, we will need some information from you first. In order to fix a problem, we need as much information as possible from you about it. Please provide details of the issue, such as the application name you are having problems with. If you can reproduce the issue consistently, provide the details on how to do so, that way we can attempt to recreate it ourselves. If it is a graphical glitch, try to get a screenshot of the problem, or a regular camera picture. The most valuable information you can provide is logcat output, see below on capturing a good log for us.

How can I get a good log of a problem I am having?
There are two methods you can use to get a log for us. The easiest method is to use aLogcat from the market. An alternative method is to use adb on your computer. If you do not know how to save the adb output from logcat to a text file, I recommend using aLogcat. Once you are ready to capture a log, start logcat from adb, or aLogcat. With the log still running in the background, recreate your issue several times (3 to 4 times should be sufficient). Once you have recreated the issue multiple times, stop the logging and save the log file. With aLogcat, it will be saved to your SDCard. Then, take your log output and send it to us, preferably via PM. The reason we request via PM is that sometimes, logcat can capture personal information, such as your email address or phone number. Rest assured that we have no interest in this and will use the output strictly as a debugging tool to help fix whatever issue you are reporting. We hate spam just as much as you do.

Help, I restarted into recovery and lost all of my data!
Unfortunately, this is a known issue and something that a fix is being worked on. The nature of the problem and why it is happening is unknown. However, the problem is widespread and affects us as well. If we had a quick fix for you, we would gladly offer it. When the problem is found and fixed, you will be sure to know about it as we hate setting up our phones too, and given the amount of testing that goes in to building a ROM, we've done so several times already, and will likely do it several more.

How can I thank you for your work?
Just click the thanks button on our posts. We do this for fun, but if you wish to a monetary donation, please see our donation links in the first post of this thread.

How can I get XXX app to vibrate on new notifications?
It seems that some applications are ignoring the global vibrate notification setting. To fix this, go into the application and press the menu button and go to settings (or however you get to the application settings). Find the notification settings, and turn on vibrate. It seems that messaging is the biggest complain among people, and this should solve the problem.

Can XXX be added to the FAQ?
While we strive to keep up with posts, sometimes we may overlook a repeated question or issue. If you see something you would like posted in the FAQ, feel free to ask. We only ask that you put your request in the following format:

Installed it and got it up and running. SIM card failed or something similar when I just installed the kernal/rom itself but now I'm updated the modems, so that should fix it? I wasn't aware we HAD to odin the modems for it to work lol. But we'll see.

edit: yeah as I figured that did it. I'll see if everything is ext4 and update you guys with some quad scores in a few.

edit2: um yeah I don't have ext4... definitely installed the ext4 version, but its all rfs. I know when I went to restore in cwm I lost all my data again. maybe it's the hated gltich from gummyep1q?

edit3: got ext4 again. must have been something wrong with restoring.

Pardon the noob question, but will this work with the lagfix kernel that imoseyon is working on? Always liked imnuts work but had been wanting to go ep1w and try that kernel just for a test.

Thanks for the rom though, nice work!

What differences are there between this and imoseyon's kernel? I just installed this, have always like your work imnuts. And now that it is deodexed I can work on a theme of my own again.

Pardon the noob question but should I go back to stock EE4 before putting this on? I'm currently running GummyCharged 2.0. I was thinking of going to EE4, then upgrading to EP1W and then putting this on but if I can skip a few steps, it would make it easier/faster.

I can confirm that going into CWM after applying this (the kernal, rom, modems w/etx4 anyway) will wipe your data and remove ext4 on the newest version of cwm.

I don't know about this kernel, but imoseyon has been working with supercurio for full, official Voodoo lagfix support. It can be managed through the Voodoo Control app and really boosts the performance. Hopefully imnuts or someone else who has tried ths can answer the question of how this kernel compares.

I've used both and can honestly say that there is no noticable difference in performance. At least to my eye. Both fly right along:)

I just added EXT4 support and a few small tweaks, not full Voodoo support. I think Imoseyon added some other stuff too besides voodoo lagfix. Adding in the lagfix also slows down the boot, and really, how many people convert back to rfs? His kernel may work with this, but some people in IRC had problems with it.

Have you tried a different version of CWM yet?

I'd like to know this too. I'm also on GummyCharged FE 2.0. Do I have to flash the EP1W leak first with Odin, then flash this ROM/Kernel? Or can I just flash this right over GC 2.0 (after doing a wipe of course)

You should be able to go to this from anything. Just be sure to wipe data (preferably before flashing). If you're already on an EP1W release, you may be able to get away without a wipe, but you could introduce random problems by doing so.
