    Before you read - I am not responsible for anything that happens when you install this rom. I will feel bad and probably try to help if something happens, but you are solely responsible for your device. This rom is only for Virgin Mobile USA users.

    Thank you for this , however root will not update binary and does not prompt for permission with superuser which has to be installed because it's not included in the rom . Check root . Also it would be nice to have boot to recovery on shutoff menu and the 3g icon is very small . These are the only pickins I could find which are just that but the root issue should be looked at .

    I'm intrigued as to the "More..." section. What other features are present?

    More is used to represent small features that should probably be in every rom at this point (sending texts, 3g working, etc.). Rather than putting "It makes phones calls," I just put "More..." to say that it can do more than what's listed.

    All the other features listed above are the biggest differences at this point. Hopefully it's a longer list as this rom starts to develop more!

    Alright, just curious to see if it was a placeholder or something :p

    Well, tearing apart the build from today, it looks sound. Was your base for this the stock ROM?
     
  7. David Dubz

    Yep :p it's pretty much the only base for right now unless I were to base it off the rom you worked on, but that's just cheap. I wanted to be an innovator not a copier. Although I did take a lot of icons from cm9 and cm10

    Leslie Ann has said that Aeneas can be used to build a ROM from, and that is what many try to do (in fact, IIRC this is the only ROM that hasn't used Aeneas. That's not a bad thing, just interesting). It doesn't have complete init.d support, but does come with everything stock and has some background changes as well. You are welcome to use Aeneas as your base as well :)

    But I agree with the innovation remark. I try to do the same as well, and we could always use some new developers.

    TL;DR...

    Welcome to the Optimus Elite Development Team, and if you need any help with anything feel free to ask around! :)

    Thanks for the new ROM. I will be trying it out after the holidays.. :)

    Just thought I'd make a small note here, Factory Reset returns the phone to Stock, but doesn't create room for a new ROM. To make way for a new ROM, one would need to format the /cache, dalvik cache, and /system, and many also recommend formatting /data as well, for a first time :)
    And, since most of the changes developers make I'd wager are in /system, then for each update one would need to format the /cache, dalvik cache twice, and then fomat /system as well :)

    Why do you wipe dalvik twice?
     
  12. Artine

    Artine Android Expert

    Because, I've noticed, half the time only doing it once isn't enough. Some data tends to be leftover, causing problems. Wiping specifically the dalvik cache twice, however, remedies this.

    I agree. My normal procedure for updating a Rom or flashing a kernel is double wiping davlik and cache. For a new Rom I wipe the above, along with formatting data (or wipe data/factory reset) and format system. I also recommend not advance restoring data or restoring app data with tiB across different roms.

    So hitting wipe data/factory reset in the recovery will install the stock rom and everything? Will that unroot us and if we reboot right after that will stock recovery be installed?
     
  15. Artine

    Artine Android Expert

    I don't believe you will lose root, nor CWM, but otherwise yes it's the stock ROM relevant to your most recent firmware update.
     
  16. sneaky_1

    Wipe data/factory reset or format data, will just wipe the /data partition. Meaning it will remove all your downloaded apps and anything else on/data. So since I have slepnir, it will be bare with no user apps installed, just system apps, but it still will be slepnir.. It won't affect root or anything. You can just do a nandroid, then try it. Then you can advance restore/data and be up and running like normal (since it is the same Rom).


    Edit:
    The picture is of a wipe data/factory reset with cwm 6, you can see what it wipes. Format /data will only wipe /data, of course.

    choosing the wipe data/restore option actually will format your /data, /cache, /emmc (internal card), and i think it also wipes your /sdcard (the external SD) and dalvik cache. any files you have in the /system, /boot, or recovery partitions are left as is, the point of that option is to wipe all user data, not render the phone unusable. Because of this, and the fact that installing a rom replaces the stock files in /system, you would still have recovery, root, and whatever rom a/o system apps you had installed before.

    Wipe data/factory reset from cwm will not wipe internal and external sd cards.

    Thanks for the help guys, so it looks like you won't have to factory reset, just wiping /cache and /system once, and dalvik cache twice. Btw new version is up, fixing the invisible text box issue. Let me know if anyone finds a glitch or anything, it would be appreciated :)

    For the first time installation instructions, you should add that they will need to format /data as well, or the phone could very easily bootloop for those switching ROMs. As for updating, formatting /system is required. Just thought I'd throw that out there :) Also, may I recommend taking a look at the Hydra thread? There is a plethora of development topics covered, as well as links to some great development resources, that may help you in furthering your ROM :)
    Also, you can include giantpune's custom kernel in the ROM, just replace the boot.img in the root directory with giantpune's, and edit the updater-script in META-INF where it says "extracting kernel," and replace the filename of "boot.img" with giantpune's custom kernel's *.img. That way, people don't have to do a separate flash for giantpune's custom kernel :)

    Nope, I'm sorry. I haven't updated this rom for a while. If there is enough demand for it, I'll create a sprint version. Let me know if anyone is interested
