    Hey all, Koumajutsu here,

    I decided that due to KK2.0's release and the fact that it does not play nice with RFS filesystems anymore (who uses them anyways? oh yeah, if you're checking this out, then probably you :) ) that we needed a Stock/Base rom that runs on EXT4.

    So, with a good bit of help from The Skater187 who deodexed the original rooted stock ODIN image I made, and a few other small tweaks, I present the Half Ass Rom!

    It's stock with all the stocky goodness, minus some bloat to make it fit into ext4.
    It's Rooted!
    It's DeOdexed.
    It comes with KoumaKernel 2.5
    It will work on EJ06 or higher radio basebands
    It will report as FE16 so you won't get update reminders until the next update.
    It has more stock stuff than before.

    *It does not update your baseband, you must use Odin to switch basebands

    New version 2.0. Based on the FE16 update.
    I redid this myself from the ground up. Thanks go to Skater187 for the time he put in on stocking up his ROM as an inspiration and as a base for 1.0, but I needed to learn to a do a bunch of this stuff :D

    I don't believe TeleNav can be downloaded through Market. The ones on Market are only available to their respective carriers and Boost Mobile is not one of them.

    I only did a quick market search. I knew there was a method posted for installing apps that are listed as "unsupported" so I just left it at that. Worst case, I go back and say it's not available in the market :)

    Giving it a test run right now. Haven't used stock since I got the phone about 7 months ago, so I'm interested to see what it's like for a bit. Also a good time to check out your new KK2.0, thanks Kouma.

    No problem. I don't think this will see much use. It's not really the intent.
    There is the occasional user that just wants stock with a few tweaks, but this was meant to be a piece for people to start from. Where the hard stuff is yet to be done, but the annoying stuff has already been taken care of

    Actually since I've installed this rom it's getting me interested in seeing what I can do with a stock rom and how I can mod it and learn to work at making something out of it. I know I've seen topics around here in the past about how to get started making roms etc... but I can't seem to find anything at the moment. Any idea where these topics have gone? Maybe you could point me in the right direction?

    Pretty satisfied with this ROM, in my opinion it reads the sd card quite well.. Also I was able to put the init.d folder from CTMod 3.2 and even added 66citbun and it surprisingly worked, I checked the sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb... It read 128 before hand and after I put the init.d folder in and set the permissions, the read_ahead_kb file said 2048 and it worked like a charm!

    It looks to be only for US Cellular customers, but for whatever reason, seems to work fine for most carriers.

    Tested and compared it. It actually has a few more features than the stock TeleNav app that came with our Prevails from Boost Mobile. So I agree with you, it is an equal/better replacement for the stock app.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    That's funny, I got herpes too, but I did not realize I got it from this ROM until now

    I thought I got it from kissing her

    Hi Kouma,


    Great job in releasing another ROM and including your latest Kernel within it.
    I just have a quick question, my 16 gb MicroSD card is partitioned with a second partition for sd-ext, if I install this rom which has KK2.0 in it will it use the MicroSD for A2SD??

    yup, and it will format the ext partition during the install process, so save anything you want out of there before installing

    I know this is a stupid question... so please forgive me.

    When I install this ROM, will it format and partition my microSD card automatically to EXT4? Ive been modding and flashing since the V3 Razr Monsterpacks (yeah, im old). The only thing I cant wrap my brain around is the EXT4 stuff...

    Let the beatings begin... take it easy on me
