Default [TeamFC][ROM]GsnapElite Mk2 5-20-2013

Circle me on Google plus I'm there most of the time, don't be afraid
http://gplus.to/kenharkey7

I reactivated my Facebook http://facebook.com/kenharkey

This is GSnapElite, a rom that had been heavily influenced by gingersnap from neko95 on xda. The goal of this rom is to provide flexibility, stability and performance under one roof. I will strive to make this rom as light, efficient and powerful as possible, in short lean and mean.

It is based off the latest version of Harmonia so you still get it's stability and performance in a whole new package.

First off the credits:
# hashtag for the original base
# Leslie Ann for Harmonia
# Artine for the write up in the hydra thread
# giantpune for the kernel
# neko95 on xda his gingersnap Rom was the inspiration for this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=28465534
# Pilot03 for helping with files I found out I didn't actually need...sorry
# Anyone else who had a hand in making any component in this rom

### A special shout out to coffee my motivation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGzgwbnB7eM

Standard disclaimer:
You flash this of your own will I cannot and will not be held responsible for any damages, please know full well what you are doing before you flash my rom. That being said I've had zero issue flashing and running this I've had zero issues but of course ymmv.

Personal disclaimer:
This is my first time trying something like this, the closest I've come is remastering my own ubuntu so for the love of Torvalds and Stallman make a nandroid backup before you flash.

GsnapElite





Changes in New version
# Updated with Sleipnir 2.4.0.3 as a base
# Full init.d support
# Reintroduced init.d tweaks now that the kernel fully supports them
# Updated play store
# Updated gps.conf
# Rom is now odexed


Changes in previous version





What makes this special?
I'm working toward a full LG ui 2.0 experience, I'm working hard porting over the apps and widgets as well as theming it the rom. So far it has LG 2 home launcher with full widget support, widgets for [Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, battery, network status, picture frame, incoming messages, and alarm clock], all core app icons are themed (working on fully porting them instead of just theming), LG ui 2.0 wallpapers are included, new boot animation.

Issues, concerns, bugs and annoyances:
# The social plus and weather aren't fully working, the apps themselves work but some of the widgets do not. I'll add these as optional zips.
# The first few seconds of a boot seems to lag a bit, working on this
# Just noticed, when adding a tapatalk widget it didn't appear for about 30 seconds, may also happen with other widgets.
# enabling vibrate feedback on lg keyboard will cause it to force close

# Send any other reports to kenharkey7@gmail.com

Default Re: [ROM][WIP]TheLGE

Change log:
Version 0.9.1 Internal testing
I hit my phone with science and poked it with a stick.

Version 1.0 first public release
First release no real changes yet.

Version 1.5
Finished up theme, improved stability and performance


FAQ, because why not?

Why did I choose the default apps?
I picked tesla because it's the best all around flashlight in my opinion and really useful. I picked es because it's nice looking, ad free, root powered and has access to ftp, it had helped me build this rom and my website. Lg keyboard because....do I need to say it? Swype beta installer because Swype rocks and its free.

I thought you didn't have a computer, how did this make this rom?
I used es file manager, zarchiver, 920editor and tapatalk to look things up, I manually themed every apk by hand and thru a lot of trial and error.

Looks sweet - finally something is happening on these threads.

Also, if you want to edit the status bar icons, they're found in system/framework/framework.apk and system/app/systemui.apk. If you unzip framework-res.apk using 7zip or something, you can see all the icons and everything to edit. Then you can re-zip when done.

Hmm I can't seem to find the battery icons, I have the entire status bar changed except the battery

Never mind, they were in the framework. Strange how the rest of the status bar icons are in system ui but the battery is under framework

Yeah, I haven't fully ported the weather yet, I know the app it self works and the smallest size widget should also work but not the medium or large size. As far add the lag is concerned I'll have to take as look, it might be the launcher, it's made for all resolutions so maybe I can try cutting out anything that's not for our resolution, I'll also look at the scripts, thank you for trying it

Also you could try reducing the number of screens, I use 3 and don't really have any lag.

That's why Hydra's out Stable base, has all improvements from all the top ROMs, to be used as a base.

Ok....just found out that I'll pretty much have to port over each core app individually to get the best integration as possible.

As far as the weather, porting it deals with modifying the framework res so honestly I'm waiting till the theming is done before I start on that.

As far as hydra goes. Honestly the reason i didn't use it was because no matter what i did i was unable to manipulate the zip

Take your time. From what I've learned, people prefer larger updates over longer periods of time, as opposed to having to update every other day with negligible changes.

Not a problem, i just could really use some assistance in getting the widgets to work and theme finished. It sucks not having a computer lol

On a side note, I'm thinking about calling my rom the kludge or half baked lol

Do you plan on theming the signal bars at all? I believe either Artine, Hashtag, or Ktb knew where those files were. Also did you just install Cyanogenmod's DSP Manager or did you actually put in the libs and get them to work as well? DSP Manager isn't exactly easy to get it working on a non Cyan mod ROM. xD

Dsp manager is fully working all libs installed. Im listening to music right now using it lol. Signal bars.....yes im going to theme them and i already know where they are. The issue though is it will bring it down visually from 6 bars to 4, but this will only be a visual change and wont effect the way it works

Basically, all of the GUI images are stored in framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk. In some cases, like the battery icon, there are files for them in both .apk files. They have to match, if they reside in both, or, IIRC, the framework-res.apk's file take priority.

As for the 6 bars to 4, I found it best to set it up as follows:

0 = 0/4 / Empty Bars Displayed
1 = 1/4 Bars Displayed
2 = 2/4 Bars Displayed
3 = 2/4 Bars Displayed
4 = 3/4 Bars Displayed
5 = 3/4 Bars Displayed
6 = 4/4 Bars Displayed

Yeah i found this out the hard way lol its also true for the phone and contacts. They use the same files

I figured that it would be more informative for users to see as-close-to-accurate-as-possible signal bars with the switchover, and I didn't want anyone to see full bars if it wasn't actually full :P

I didn't know that for phone and contacts though - that's a little weird. And I'm not sure why they're different apps in the first place.

Yeah thats why the first build doesnt have the phone icon themed. I changed the icon file but nothing happened. It wasnt till later when i was theming contacts whrn i saw it ic_icon_launcher_phone or what ever. I damn near threw my phone lol i was looking all over for it.

The goal of this rom is to provide flexibility, stability and performance under one roof. I will strive to make this rom as light, efficient and powerful as possible, in short lean and mean.

It is based off the latest version of tagged so you still get it's stability and performance in a whole new package.

First off the credits:
# hashtag for the rom and scripts that are included.
# Leslie Ann for aeneas
# Artine for the write up in the hydra thread
# giantpune for the kernel
# neko95 on xda his gingersnap Rom was the inspiration for this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=28465534
# Anyone else who had a hand in making any component in this rom

Standard disclaimer:
You flash this of your own will I cannot and will not be held responsible for any damages, please know full well what you are doing before you flash my rom. That being said I've had zero issue flashing and running this I've had zero issues but of course ymmv.

Personal disclaimer:
This is my first time trying something like this, the closest I've come is remastering my own ubuntu so for the love of Torvalds and Stallman make a nandroid backup before you flash.

What's different?
It includes all scripts and tweaks that tagged has plus..added script to set proper permissions for system apps for each boot

All apps that were taken out are still gone plus I removed..gmail, App quarantine, busy box installer, Swype, Holo Locker, Holo Launcher, gallery ics (I think that's it, if there are more I'll update)

Added the very latest version of flash for gingerbread, titanium backup, es file manager, aLogcat (for now), quick pic, Swype beta installer, quick boot, tesla led and juice defender, lighter fonts, latest version of super su, fixed calendar and quick memo so they should be working now, giantpune kernel had been updated to the 10_26 build.

What makes this special?
I'm working toward a full LG ui 2.0 experience, I'm working hard porting over the apps and widgets as well as theming it the rom. So far it has LG 2 home launcher with full widget support, widgets for [Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, battery, network status, picture frame, incoming messages, and alarm clock], all core app icons are themed (working on fully porting them instead of just theming), LG ui 2.0 wallpapers are included, new boot animation.

Issues, concerns, bugs and annoyances:
# The social plus and weather aren't fully working, the apps themselves work but some of the widgets do not. I'll add these as optional zips.
# The first few seconds of a boot seems to lag a bit, working on this
# Had to add quick pic as a user app since it doesn't like being a root app.
# Just noticed, when adding a tapatalk widget it didn't appear for about 30 seconds, may also happen with other widgets.
# Added aLogcat for the first couple releases if anyone wants to send me reports if anything happens, this will be removed later. Send reports to kenharkey7@gmail.com and title it what the issue was thanks.
# Launcher doesn't rotate

Its in the installed apps section. That version uses quickpic. The next version will have a regular gallery
Just look at the screenshot that shows the wallpapers.


Signal bars are themed...
0 is 0
1 is 1
2 and 3 are 2
4 and 5 are 3
6 is 4
Kinda strange though, the 3g and battery are green but the status bars are blue

Whatever that might be present in tagged. The only issue I've noticed besides what's on the op is that you may get a random reboot when a lot of ram is being used. So far I've been able to avoid it by using the interactive governor, it seems to happen more frequently on savaged Zen or smartass v2

I played zenonia 5 for about 4 hours yesterday on 1.6max 460 min interactive with no issues

That's the LG keyboard and is a known issue. It's even posted on the op. Glad to hear you are enjoying the rom


I resolved a few issues that have been really bugging me, I'm going to be uploading a new version in the morning, based on Harmonia this time with a couple other small changes and a big improvement in stability.

OP updated, last one for this rom unless i get lucky enough to get a laptop

It seems like it yes. For example the touch screen tweak, with it inserted I would lose half of my screen (it wouldn't function) with it removed I've had no issues. I also suspect a couple others are contributing to random reboots. So for this release I removed them, I've been running this configuration for a few days and have had none of the issues I've experienced with the previous build

Yes and no. I updated the rom but if the one you are using works for you then you don't need to re flash. Basically this is just a cleaned up version based on harmonia instead of tagged.

I'm sorry about the confusion
