I use the stock sms app, and I just noticed on mj5 when I get a new message, the lockscreen just says "New message". On mga it used to tell me who the message was from as well.

Anyone else getting this? Knowing my luck of late, it's probably just a problem for me.

So... I enabled my lock screen. I disabled Handcent messaging. I enabled stock messaging and sent a message to myself. It comes up on the lock screen as a translucent rectangle with the words, "Messaging", and, "New message", with the time received.

Is that what you wanted to know old thing?

I'll just go and put my phone back the way it was shall I?

Mmmmm. Does it actually flash and show up in your phone settings?

Have you tried flashing it twice??

And I know it's a stupid question, but you did un rar it, yes?

I've always been taught that there are no stupid questions. The only stupid question is a question not asked

But yes, I've unrarred it and even flashed it thrice! I will have a look at the link ironass gave me, looks like I do need a bit more work to get it flashed the right way

Oh dear sntaylor, that says more about you and your user dictionary than it does about Syd. Anyway, everyone knows that STD means.... Syd's Tetly's Drinking.

It does rather smack of using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut. It would seem the majority are being punished for the armhole minority... not to mention the poor dev.

From what I have seen on the xda forums, you have those who are willing to devote their time and effort to producing stuff that they share with others and then you have a tiny, but abusive, minority who demand, moan, whinge and try and throw their weight around and generally act like spoilt brats. Being a dev is by-and-large a pretty thankless task without having to be penalised for the actions of a few of those he is trying to help.

Right... morning rant over. Need more coffee!

I always use the full version, and freeze what I dont want, as they say:
One man's bloat is another man's haute.

V6 seems to be adding quite a few apps as standard (adaway, xposed, wanam etc)
Also, there has been a lot of mods made to the stock SMS app which seems handy.
Per-app DPI seems a big enhancement. Not seen this ever on a Sammy ROM before. However, this can sometime become more trouble than it's worth, but still worth a dabble I think.

Speed dial extended to 100? I can't fill the current 8!!!!

I'm a stock purist, so the themed version doesn't really interest me, so I'm pondering on whether or not to install v6, or just lift bits+bobs out of it and put onto v5.
I'm wondering how v6 will cope when 3Minit comes out. Easy enough to disable Wanam Xposed, but there are a few 3-minit type things integrated into the system settings menu, so this may perhaps clash. We shall see....

No idea mate!

As for v6, I dirty flashed over v5 to test.
I've made the following observations:

1. LED manager always puts an annoying icon in the status bar even when you turn off the option in the app. Only way I've found to get rid of it is to disable notifications in for the app in android. If you do this, then none of the LED functionality of the app takes affect
2. "Downloads" in echoe rom does nothing as yet
3. Adaway is on v2.3. You cant install 2.5 over this. I think you may have to manually put it into /system/app/adaway.apk and set permissions+reboot. As I dont know whats different between 2.3 and 2.5, I'll stay with 2.3
4. comes with wanam xposed and nottach xposed. For what I can make out, these do similar things. not sure why its bundled with both. does enabling both give you any benefits/problems?
5. Comes with useless battery calibration app. this was useless on the S2, so I dont see why this should be any different on the S4

I'll stick on v6 for now, but I've made a zip for v6 sms etc. so I may eventually go back onto v5 and flash this. Depends on if 3Minit works properly on v6 or not.

Echoe ROM now has it's own website.

Perhaps a response to XDA shutting them down for a day....

Well it's all took off since I went to the wilds of Scotland with no Wi-Fi as for 3G (4G they have never heard of in Dumfries and Galloway I'm sure) that was non existent.

Right I have a SGS4 on MGG stock Vodafone firmware, fresh out of the box Knox intact. Now just for you lot I'll flash v6 of echo ROM (after pre rooting of course) full fast version. I'll see if I've tripped Knox and take it from there. I'll download tonight and flash tomorrow (not at work till Monday now). I'll let you know exactly what I do and what happens. Then I'm open to suggestions. If Knox trips so be it, at least I'll be able to flash a recovery of choice without worrying about it, my intention is to try stuff that supposedly won't trip Knox until it does. I don't particularly want it tripped, but I'm not concerned if it does.

Good luck ol boy, if I'd known you were up my way I'd have said pop in for a cuppa, or whisky :-P but then I'm an extra 40 mins from Dumfries.....

Anyway, good luck on your quest :-)

What does everyone else think of the update? Is it much better than the 4.2.2 Roms and is echoe still working flawlessly for everyone?

#1.6 in Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares might be of interest to you as you are, reluctantly, on Knox dyno.

Been badgered by Hawker in to installing v6. Too early to tell for me. Bit of a rigmarole setting it up. I think the dev could have done a bit better on updating the add-ons. Otherwise, it seems fine. Worth giving it a go, IMHO.

I'm going to stick with v5.
Getting trouble with the integrated apps, even after removing and placing into system apps.
Eg. I have 2 versions of xposed, one that opens through the echoe option in settings, the other, the more updated one, in the app drawer, so I'm concerned view this is all tying in.

I made a request on the thread (which was unanswered, no surprise on xda) for the extra apps to be installed as user apps allowing the end user to easily uninstall or subsequently update.

I might carry the faux kernel over from v6 to v5, but unsure about what cpu app it needs, so I'll have to get to my pc and do some digging.

If I find the "Holy Grail" of stopping Knox tripping (which I doubt). I'll let you all know here.

I've only just looked at where you are sntaylor. We went to Culzean (pronounced Cul-ain for the unaware) on Monday (the actual castle had shut for the season) , could have done with a "wee dram" after taking this panoramic shot on the beach there:

alrighty lads, before i take the 4.3 plunge, very simply, are there any decent advantages of going for Echo over my nice little knox free 4.2.2 MH8?

Its possible butty, but I don't think think so, as I removed all traces of apps, and I still couldn't reinstall them properly. I find it quicker to get to those apps via the app drawer (or even adding to homescreen by adding from the app drawer) than having to go into the echoe extra settings app.

Anyway, I prefer v5 having the "system" apps that I want, and in the way they get bundled. I now have a single Xposed 2.3.1, a working adaway2.8 (although it did fail on the very first attempt to update) CPU spy, have manually installed light manager from the play store and are all available in the app drawer and are therefore much more easily accessible and updatable.

Now contemplating putting Faux kernel and Viper mod onto v5.

Fair enough, but suppose you will be more snookered as further versions come out. Presumably future releases will all come in these packaged versions.

Out of interest, when I originally went on echoe, I did a full wipe, including your nuke which cleared absolutely everything from my phone. Literally, everything!! So setting up echoe for the first time was completely from scratch.

When I then decided to go back to mh1 and got myself in a complete pickle, I obviously wiped everything from my phone and started again. Then when I went back to echoe, I did a full wipe, and on reinstalling the echoe Rom zip, a lot of my apps and settings from my first echoe dabble reappeared. Still cannot fathom how these survived two full wipes.......

I'm hoping for v6+ they will have listened to many of the suggestions and requests, and will stop bundling 3rd party apps, or at least install them as user apps.
As for things being carried over, they probably store some data in /sdcard and/or storage/extSdCard that did not get wiped.

Interestingly a new slim version has now been uploaded this evening, with no packaged extras or kitchen, so you add these as you want.....

Perhaps they are listening to you Paul

Did you just say something old boy?


Perhaps indeed butty. Just seen the "slim no kitchen" link on the website.
How do you know it doesn't come with the packaged extras butty?

I would think echoe v6 minus packaged extras minus kitchen, would essentially be v5 anyway?

Hi simes, I believe that the point of this echo Rom is that it is completely Knox free, so you should be able to flash to your hearts content :-)

cheers sntaylor, im already knox free on Phoenix 3.0, was just wondering if i could expect a performance hit on 4.3 as opposed to 4.2.2, ie, battery, smoothness etc? not keen on the problems some people have had with restoring backups, modems not being recognised etc on 4.3.

Coz I flashed it!

Absolutely nothing added, none of the new camera or gallery apps, no adaway or viper etc etc

So yes, it's basically v5 super slim with faux kernel. Lovely and slim!!

Gonna stick with this, I love the fact there's no crud, I can choose what to add and remove, and which versions to have....

Good to see them listening to us minions.

I'm happy enough on v5, and as an unthemed un packaged un-kitchened v6=v5 I shall stick, but feel happier now for upgrading to future versions as and when the firmware base changes.

sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

i wiped and went with the latest slim rom and loaded up all the latest 4.4 goodies i could find on XDA.

It took me the best part of 2 minutes to go back to recovery and start again

OMG what a joke, maybe im getting too old for this, but IMO it looks so bad.

The Icons on Google launcher are HHHHHHHUUUUUGGGEEEEE and look absolutely Butt AWFUL, 4.3 camera is better, 4.3 gallery is better, couldnt get the always on google to work.

WIPE, Flash

All that took me less time to realise than boiling the kettle
