    What is Star-ScROM.

    Star-ScROM is a custom ROM for the Samsung Transform Ultra. Most ROMs have funny, off the wall or cool names. Star-ScROM is simply based off of the Transformer Starscream, and that's about it.

    Star-ScROM now ships with my first Android program called StarSettings,
    StarSettings "unlocks" some hidden features.
    Like native USB Tether
    A font changer(haven't really played with it yet but it seemed cool)
    Battery Info
    Radio Info(Change to EVDO and it'll unlock your speeds to awesome levels!)
    and an APN editor, I don't suggest playing with it at all.

    and it'll probably have other stuff in the future
    But yay custom ROM

    Welcome to Star-ScROM
    It is the first Custom ROM for the Transform Ultra
    [​IMG] <--Will be changed lol

    Version 0.7
    CWM
    and other stuff
    Soon!

    Version 0.6
    Native USB Tethering
    Sprint gets their own version
    Comes with Star-Settings, has some extra functions left out of the phone(CAN BE DANGEROUS SO DON'T MESS WITH IT TOO MUCH)
    Other stuff I forgot to leave out?
    Ships with Star-Settings, enables native usb tethering and other dangerously cool stuff!
    Download Boost Version
    Download Sprint Version

    Version - 0.5
    More speed ups introduced
    Fixed MMS and Swype.

    Fixed a bug that would prevent updating.

    Download now!


    Version - 0.4
    All of 0.1 Goodness + tweaks
    Way faster response
    Includes Auto Task Killer
    and 3g tweaks!
    DOWNLOAD 0.4 today!

    Version - 0.1
    Current features, some neat additions.
    Deodexed apps
    Removal of bloatware
    STARTUP IS FAST :DDD
    ERRORS with 0.1:
    When installing you may get a "rm failed for /tmp" that is okay.
    STAR-SCROM DOWNLOAD [​IMG]
    Version 2 will be fully deodexed and root on boot.

    Then I plan on noCIQ and lots of fun stuff. So look forward to more! [​IMG]

    Instructions:

    Make sure USB Debugging is enabled.
    Drivers for Windows!~
    If on windows. Double Click the .Bat file.

    On Mac/Linux:
    open a terminal
    sh shfile.

    Simple :)
    Disclaimer:
    I'm not responsible for dead phones. But I test on my own phone before releasing so it should be good!

    I will not put forth any effort into "undoing" the custom ROM.
    I MAY make a stock restorer.

    If you fail to send MMS's:
    Turn off your Wi-Fi.
    Turn off 3G
    reboot phone
    Turn on 3g
    Send an MMS

    This appears to be something with Android. I will look into it further but this is the fix

    Is there a way to reverse this and go back to stock if something goes wrong? Also, did you make any changes to the drivers or touchscreen settings?

    Thanks interdpth, it took a couple tries but I finally managed to get this to install on my phone. I just had a couple questions as to what the major differences were with this ROM versus the stock. I notice the keyboard is different, and some apps that came on the phone were removed, but not much else, or did it not install correctly on my phone? The build shows up as Star-ScROM.

    FYI: I was not able to successfully flash to v0.4 using your instructions but I was able to flash successfully to v0.1 on a stock tu rom.

    Is there a more verbose changelog/feature list somewhere for each version? Thank you for all your hardwork on these roms!

    yea i have the same problem installing both the rom. what i did was edit the batch by right click on the file and click edit and remove "echo Rebooting Phone...adb.exe reboot
    adb.exe wait-for-device" on 0.1. For 0.4 i remove "echo Rebooting Phone...adb.exe reboot
    adb.exe wait-for-device" and ":CheckRoot adb.exe kill-server adb.exe start-server cls
    FOR /F "tokens=*" %%i in ('adb shell getprop ro.kernel.qemu') do SET ROOT=%%i
    IF %ROOT%==1 GOTO :Rooted". to install the rom to the phone. Took me half a 12 case beer to figure this out lol

    Beta :) If you haven't noticed them yet, you will in a later release.

    Actually I'm really pleased with how the phone is operating with this ROM. It feels so nice.

    Hi, interdepth. I have a soft-bricked Transform Ultra that can still access download mode and was wondering if you can create a rom that can be used with Odin, as it is the only way I can get my phone working again. I was too stupid not to backup the rom from the beginning. Much appreciated!
