Finding all the beer...huh??

Thanks for the feedback. I wouldn't have guessed to use a different wire. Was the 20 ga wire insulated or no?

Yes. I stripped off only enough to fit in the pin 1 hole, and just a tiny bit for the ground end. Twisted the ends up tight(thought about soldering them, but didn't) and used it. The 20ga fit tight in the pin 1 hole, but fit.

lol if you run control bear the beer part will make sense. appaerntly "juopunut bear" loosely translates to "drunken bear" and youll find alot of such references in the cmd window while its running.

as long as you fastboot boot recovery,you have all the same advantages for flashing roms. no harm in staying s-on if youre not comfortable with the procedure or the ability to flash any partition with any file you want. s-off is defiantely a bigger responsability.

FWIW,ive done it to my phone a couple times(had to turn s-on to make the guide) and ive done 2 friends rezounds. i do think there was more to that guys post than wht we saw. i think its a pretty safe procedure if youre cautious and closely follow the directions

What are y'all finding to be the best stable rom for battery life?
I'm getting frustrated watching my battery percent move faster than the minute hand.
Turned 4g off, screen brightness down, no live Wallpapers, wifi on when available.
If the screen is on for any significant amount of time, I can seriously watch the battery drain before my eyes running Viper. Otherwise I am loving this ROM. ver pretty and polished.

Have you tried freezing unwanted apps / system components? I am also running Juice Defender to control screen brightness and data syncing. But I know what you mean about battery life. I did noticed today that Chrome was eating up to 10 percent of my battery life so I uninstalled it, it wasn't working well with GPU rendering anyway and you can't "exit" it. I use Boat Browser instead, which is a lot like mobile Safari.

I have not tried ConRom, but it's basically just a de-bloated version of the official OTA, so it may be better. The developer, con247, is also one of ViperRez's devs.

Scotty is a fan of Nils' Business Sense 4.0, I haven't tried that one either.

If you don't care about having Sense, NeoMax looks pretty polished and fast and has a very low memory footprint due to being desensed and heavily tweaked. I may try that one this weekend. There are some things you can flash if you don't like the ROM's "inverted" app appearance.

I'm running Newts and Launcherpro. Having great results, even using an Acesoft battery. With the OTA i was dead by lunchtime. Right now i am at 48% and it is about 16:00.

I think I'm having problems underneath all this, but I appreciate the input. Juice defender works very well, but I don't like how it delays my connection when I pull up the internet or anything that uses it right when it opens.
I'm going back to the stock ruu all over again (still having hotboot issues) and I'll try one of the ones listed there. Newts is the only one I think I haven't tried yet, so mayber I'll try that one. I wanted to try Nils and have flashed it multiple times, but it has been one of the worst offenders for the hotboots and battery life for me.

Newts is not a bad ROM, I used it for three weeks or so before and after OTA. Honestly it is pretty similar featurewise to viperrez, with one key difference underneath:

Newts is based on droid incredible 4g and evo 4g lte, while viperrez comes from HTC one x. Whether that makes any difference in battery life, I dunno.

Did a battery cycle tonight and going to run down battery using diff ROMs this weekend and take screens of battery usage. I read something today that said expected screen time for stock galaxy nexus is 4 hours. That's about what u get with the rezound, I think? Or about 13 hours standby. *Its the HD screen that's draining juice... *

TheAtheistReverend, I am not sure if it was you who was trying out slimrom, but de-sensing definitely seems to help with battery life.

I flashed neomax 2.0 this afternoon (see link in earlier post) and am already seeing noticeable improvement. It is desensed and debloated comes with some power saving tweaks pre-installed. If u decide to try it out, there are some mods u might want to flash with it. By default, it has inverted (light text on black background) apps, so I flashed a zip to go back to normal. It has a sweet cyan theme throughout the Rom and has been stable for me so far.

ViperRez is still my fave, but until I get a bigger battery, I may stick with a lighter ROM.

ViperRez - XDA-developers

Link is to the rezound, but Team Venom makes versions of the same Rom for HTC one x and other recent HTC phones.

If u read the neomax thread carefully, it has DLs for two alternate kernels, .7 and .10. You might try flashing .7 if u are still having heat issues.

i figure theres not much point in flashing cm9 or milestone until they update the OP and buglists.

i personally cant wait for AOSP

Unfortunately I can't even get it to boot with either kernel. Just get the white screen with HTC.

Sorry you are having issues because I think you will really like this ROM.

This process worked for me:

-- Full wipe in amon ra
-- Clear Storage from stock recovery
-- Flash neomax 2.0 zip from fastboot boot [amon ra recovery]?
-- reboot

I am S-On, so I realize it may be different, but supposedly neomax was originally developed for s-off devices. So maybe you need to flash the boot.img from inside the neomax zip.

I would also try running it with the default .12 kernel first to make sure it boots to that before trying an alternate kernel. Scotty claims .7 was just for gingerbread, so I'm not sure why neomax is offering it as an alternative kernel to run off of.

actually i think wat i said was the .7 kernel(along with the .10 and .12) are for sense 3.6. i dont recall saying it was for GB

the 4.0 roms will not work wit the 3.6 kernels

athiestrev,how are you flashing the kernels? and what rom were you using?

Recovery flash for most of'm if I remember right. I have been flashing like mad, so I can't say all. If flashing that way failed I would have tried PH89IMG.ZIP ing it through hboot.

I haven't flashed a hell of a lot of kernels separate from the roms, but I have tried a radio or two.

I almost always return to the .10 stock ruu and start from scratch for each flashing combo, and I typically use the all in one tool to do it (at least the recovery flashing part.)

So how does viperrez work with the .12 kernel? Is it because it also takes code from other devices? And senseless roms can use any of the kernels?

Btw u are right, u never said GB. I just got my sense versions mixed up. Sense 3.5 is GB, Sense 3.6 is ICS for non-flagship devices.

Not to make things more confusing, but I read where the htc one x is getting an ota that will take it to sense 4.1. One of the main diffs in 4.1 is it removes all 3D elements from htc widgets. Which if I understand is basically what the smooth rosie tweaks on many sense roms do, partly flatten or completely flatten 3D elements in sense. Would this be a case of OTAs imitating custom roms?? Lol

thats a good question. if viper is using the same kernel as the 3.6 roms,imnot sure how theyre doing it.

maybe they have tweeked the kernel,and/or the rom to make it work?

viper is an evita(att one xl) port,so ive no idea how much of the code is evita,and how much is vigor!

and yes,the senseless roms are using the stock framework,so any of the stock kernels should work with them.

lol mebbe so! i peronally think htc leaks stuff when they need help from the root community.

htc guy#1: "dammit bob i cant get feature x to work right for this update!"
htc guy#2: "go ahead and leak what you got. see what the root guys can do with it"



sense 4.0 was supposed to be "dumbing down" sense a little bit,as htc realized they were taking their precious UI to an extreme with stock roms topping out over 600MB. maybe its a continuation of that intention? the 3d crap is prolly alot of code to make it look right and be smooth and fast on top of it.

AFAIK, the link to ineffablus deus 1.1 that I posted on the first page of this thread is most recent. It is still based on the .10 kernel. It's confusing because the same dev has a Rom named ineffablis (no deus) that has a version of 1.4-its based on gingerbread tho. In any event, themikmik.com is the home forum for both ineffablis deus and newts one xxx so u might try searching there.

Here are ReZone's features:
I'm currently running the latest one and is working perfectly. It even comes with Google Now pre-installed. It's the latest version of the Zone's roms which covers the latest 4.0 release of the official OTA but you must first update to the LATEST release:

So, first go here, download and follow directions and then install Zone's rom from below. I have only found this ROM to be the most up to date with the Global/LTE option.

[ROM - 8/20] ReZone - 4.03.605.2 - Blue

Enjoy!

In any event, themikmik.com is the home forum for both ineffablis deus and newts one xxx so u might try searching there.

I have been running this for a few hours now. Very smooth. Battery life seems good, too. Only problem is the lack of leedroid tweaks. Can that be flashed somehow?

I think the tweaks will be in the next release... However the only tweak I really use is the wake with volume, which is built in.

Also, looks like Nils is getting ready to release his "global" version which will also include OTA updates!

Thumbs up

The next versions of adrenaline/neomax will also be based on the 'Global' kernel. I am already running neomax 2 with the global firmware, which benefits from having the new radios, however, technically I can't use my phone as a global phone.

Which doesn't bother me since I have been outside the U.S. only once in my entire life.

FWIW, Adrenaline/NeoMax's developer says that the new firmware provides the best battery life as yet. I don't have any hard numbers, but I am definitely getting a lot better battery life than when I was using a Sense 4 ROM.

I did shell out for a new 1900 mAH slim battery that's on its way from Hong Kong

The only tweaks I really use are the volume wake and font size. My old eyes need a bigger font. They are valuable to me.

Another for this ROM. It is very nicely done, smooth, reliable, has all the necessary extras and not bad on battery.

The thread I tried to start up to determine what works with the various custom ROMs never got off the ground. I've been running Simplistic 2.0 (NOT using the global ROMs yet) which has been nice, but I've had the worst battery life of anything I've used previously despite common setup.

Can anyone tell me if NeoMax and/or Vigor 360 offer:
1) good battery life (withOUT using 3rd party software like Juice Defender)
2) offer a non-global ROM option
3) support wireless tether

If you know of other ROMs worth trying that offer the above pre-reqs, I'd appreciate the plug(s)!

1) Good battery life w/o 3rd party apps, I average about 16 hrs, w/ moderate use.
2) I don't believe so anymore, but it wouldn't hurt to ask in the XDA thread.
3) Wifi tether works great with this ROM.

I assume u are talking about neomax? It does meet all 3 of those requirements. I am running neomax 2.0 with global firmware I added on myself (see scottys global thread for instructions on how to apply to any custom Rom).

From what I am reading, the global firmware improves battery life over the ICS ota, not bc of global but just general improvements to radios. I have seen better life, but I am using JD so I can't give specifics. I will say that I have been running neomax for a month or so as my daily driver and its the best battery life I have yet, probably bc its heavily stripped of sense.

Go on the neomax XDA thread and look at neos Sig, he has a new experimental Rom called x which is basically a preview version of adrenaline/neomax 3.0 without theming and extras. Neo said its even better battery life bc the global firmware is fully integrated with the ROM. (Not sure on technical details).

And I think Scotty is right, when the devs like neo and others get aosp/aokpstable for the rezound, its going to be the holy grail in several ways, partly bc there will be no bloat or crusty code in there whatsoever. As much as I like neomax, it still has some HTC sense in it due to lack of official ICS kernel source until recently.

Thanks for those responses. I would be willing to install the global RUU, but I thought flashing an RUU made it impossible to revert for receiving future OTAs? It's why I never flashed the RUU for ICS -- I wanted the opportunity to return to stock just in case.

I'm assuming the same is true if I manually upgrade to the global software?

No...will try to explain but maybe Scotty will jump in...I am S-on. I was running ICS Rom on GB firmware so I used GB ruu to get me straight to receive big ICS OTA from Verizon (tried to do manually via Scotty instructions but ultimately just did the long download by phone).

Ok, so then I was on stock ICS Rom and firmware. Flashed a custom Rom (in my case, neomax 2 which had the prerelease OTA firmware already included). After the global phone OTA came out, I wanted the new radios (Im just OCD like that) so I downloaded OTA_pkg.zip (linked on scottys global phone thread) and extracted boot.img from that and flashed it on top of neomax.

Understand that this is kind of Frankenstein, my Rom benefits from the new cell radios and other kernel improvements, but atm ny phone cannot be used as a true global phone because the ROM is not setup to take advantage of the new feature. (Think of it as having the latest windows system libraries, but without an app that takes advantage of it on your PC.)

Since I'm S-on, there's no going back to gingerbread *firmware* for me, or even the first ICS OTA for me. But I still have the official HTC firmware (global phone update), so I can run any Rom compatible with it, including any of the official ICS stock roms.

As Scotty has said, to be eligible for a true OTA (auto downloaded to your phone), you need a couple of things in place: stock Rom (rooted or unrooted, frozen system apps ok but not if they are moved/deleted), the stock HTC recovery (but not one obtained from a pre-release leak).

So let's say HTC decide to release Jellybean for Rezound as the next update (not likely, just pretend). I am already on the stock *firmware*, I would just need to flash a stock ROM from a backup or zip download and I'd be ready to go without running a RUU. Now if I didn't have a nandroid backup of the stock setup, and couldn't find the official ROM in zip format, I could download and run the latest official RUU to get me a clean setup, the same way I did when I was ready to move from Gingerbread to ICS.

Flashing a leak RUU is a bad idea and I avoided that also for ICS. Read post 2 of scottys root guide, about usage of RUU/mini RUUs to return to stock setups. Running a RUU is not the same thing as flashing a ROM that is based on the software the RUU packages together. Two different ways of reaching the same goal.

Sorry for long post, hope it makes sense.

By the way, neomax 3 is in the works and will allow proper use of global phone functionality. Also instead of having latest firmware bolted on by me the user, the ROM will have it integrated from the ground up (think of it as the latest stock Rom, heavily stripped.)

Other ROMs are also updating to global (ineffablis deus recently updated). Global firmware seems to have better battery life, mainly bc of better 4G signal lock-on, so you'll start to see Roms either update with it or get left behind (in contrast to the Roms released in the months before ICS update, which wer based on similar but slightly different kernel versions.)

Vigor360 seems like a solid Rom (basically a tweaked, prettier version of stock), zhppilot is an established modder/themer and zhp worked closely with the dev of neomax to create zhps first Rom, so it should be technically sound as well.

I recently installed the OTA ICS package and have been playing with the Cubed kernels. Battery life is not that great compared to how it was with CleanROM + SebastianFM kernel. I'm looking forward to trying out a global ROM to see if the better battery life and better 4G reception (I am JUST on the outer fringe of a 4G area) claims hold up. Think I know what I'll be doing this weekend. =:-)

Here are scotty's instructions for flashing global firmware over a custom ROM, for both S-OFF and S-ON users, with some revisions from me. Don't forget to relock before going into RUU mode (you are not actually running the RUU, just putting your phone in the mode to accept firmware updates.)

Quote:
this isnt a leak,so i think yall are ok to go ahead and update it.

s-on
-extract firmware from otapkg.zip. put it in mini-adb_vigor folder
-fastboot boot amon. make a backup
-adb reboot bootloader
-fastboot erase cache
-fastboot oem lock
-fastboot oem rebootRUU
-fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
(it will fail for with pre-update flush again immediately error). So do it again -->
-fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
(it will finish)
when its done:
-fastboot reboot-bootloader
-fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
-pull the battery and replace. Hold down volume down button plus power button to boot into hboot, then fastboot mode.
-fastboot boot amon ra
-restore full backup
-reboot
-Thank Scotty85

doing it that way will put your kernel back,so the phone will boot(the prollem i had was the incompatible kernel it installed)

alternately,could fastboot flash the boot image from the rom youre running after the firmware flash. . that would work too or even just use amon to restore the 'boot' partition may work also

the jist of this transfer of information is that youll need to replace the boot image after the firmware flash.
And here is the link to scotty's explanation of firmware vs. software and what is needed to use your phone as a global phone.

viper is pretty awesome i love the sense 4.0!!! i feel like im missing out on some of the customization options, but havent figured it out yet

Initial impressions on ViperRez are that it is more polished than Newts one xxx. It has an aroma-based installer (basically, nice GUI installer). Tweaks app doesn't have any crashes, there are lot more "wizards" to get you up and running the way you want. It is basically the HTC One X software for Rezound, done right. Beats, custom EQ profiles, sony bravia and xloud mods work out of the box (well, you have to check two checkmarks for the last two.)

Will try out the camera app and see how it compares to the nice one that newts has.
