    Heyo everyone,

    Like everyone else I was tired of not seeing any releases for the Samsung Indulge. In fact, just to root this phone, it took nearly 3 months after release. Thanks to our friends at ACS, K0nane, Shabby, Tanimn, and many others; we got root. Thanks to Mikestoolz, the creator of the Bloatware removal app, and one of the first people I met "day 1" of the release of the Samsung Indulge. Thanks to all you fellows at AF who have worked hard to find new things, and help others in regards to the Indulge.

    Since then; we been toiling away with settings, apps, tethering, battery life, and 4G. But I'll cut the chat short, and get to the point. With a lot of help I was able to make a custom rom. Doesn't have much, and obviously need a lot of work, but its a start.

    K0nane will probably release a rom soon that will blow mine away, but in the mean time to hold you guys over here's a little treat :D.

    I. The Rom so far has the following:
    Deodexed apks
    PermRoot
    Zipaligned
    Bloatware removed
    Speed tweak GPS
    Adhost (blocking popups)
    Unblocked package blocking
    Dolphin HD Browser
    Added custom framework
    Added custom font
    Added custom wallpaper
    Added custom Market
    Added CWM version:
    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/ExodusCWM0.6.zip

    Without a custom kernel, and a custom recovery, not to much else that can be done for speed/tweaks. I'm looking to try to make it more visual, but at first I decided to keep it fast and simple. I tried to maximize the amount of free memory, and speed of the touch.

    II. Instructions for Installing:

    1. Please backup everything before attempting to do this.


    2. First and for most before doing anything make sure you have the drivers:

    Samsung

    3. Make sure your phone is in debugging mode. To do this without your phone plugged into usb, settings>applications>development and then enable usb debugging. Then plug your phone in.

    4. Download and extract all the files from the Exodus0.4.zip

    Links are here:

    ALL OF THE FOLLOWING ARE INSTALLED THROUGH THE INDULGE.BAT:

    I recommend these if you want just the bloatware gone, with no custom theme, aka bare bones:

    Exodus 0.4:
    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/Exodus0.4.zip

    Exodus 0.5:
    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/Exodus0.5.zip

    Exodus 0.6:
    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/Exodus0.6.zip

    For the current CWM 0.6 grab it here:

    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/ExodusCWM0.6.zip


    5. Then inside whatever folder you extract it to you'll see a file called Indulge.bat. Click on it, and you should see a dos looking like screen, hit enter, and it'll start running. I would not do anything to the computer your using to do this in the mean time. You will notice probably that your phone is having a lot of crashes, this is because the old files are being removed and the new files are being installed. When it finishes, it will automatically reboot your phone.

    6. After your phone reboots, I would turn it off, and then do a factory wipe. (With the phone off hold R+PWR button to go to recovery, and select factory wipe). Then restart your phone, and enjoy :D.


    There is still a couple known issues, I myself experienced gmail app not wanting to connect the internet whether I had 4g or Wifi. I would suggest if this happens to delete the app, or uninstall it with sdk app remover (also from the market) and redownload it from the market.

    If you guys find anything else let me know. Again I tried to keep this as basic as possible. In the future I will probably try to add more tweaks, and alot more on the looks and interface of the phone. But for those who wanted some speed, and all the crap off the phone, here ya go :D.

    Credits to:
    T3xan my new fellow co-owner of the Rom, he's the graphics side :D
    K0nane - for helping me with CWM version, and answering any of my ROM related questions
    Aerei - for some bad ass backgrounds
    Shabbypenguin (for helping me make my rom)
    Markolo25 (for testing my rom)

    Edits:

    Version 0.4:
    Removed a couple non working apks like Voodoo, added some new ones for better app and widget management.
    Added some etc tweaks: (speed ups of): GPS, .nomedia. Adhost (blocking popups)
    Unblocked package blocking

    Version: 0.6
    Removed browser.apk, and put in Dolphin HD along with bookmarks to sd
    Added custom framework
    Added custom font
    Added custom wallpaper
    Added custom Market
    Added CWM version:
    http://www.mosslakefun.com/files/ExodusCWM0.6.zip

    Good job son. I knew you could do it :D
    Is it based on EA29 or EE07?
    Your file may be very useful since it contains a backup of all the apps! I needed something like that.

    Awesome man! Thanks I'm going to give this rom a shot. I'll edit this post after I play around with it for an hour or two.

    EDIT: Took about 30 minutes for me to install (Messed up here and there) I installed SDK Manager idk if it helps but I did install it. After clicking indulge.bat make sure you sit tight and wait for it to work and do its magic. You'll know it's working when it's saying push-> ____ and etc.

    You'll know have the rom succesfully if you have an app called Voodoo control (I think so because I did not have that app installed before) Also the BLOATWARE is gone. The phone's launcher is brought back to stock (like when you first bought the phone). And as of now the phone is running smoothly. (20 minutes after installing)

    does your rom have or flash the update? (I know it probably doesn't, but one can dream...) If not ill try it out anyway, just curious. Post reviews people. Communication can only bring the roms faster...

    Sorry just finished uploading it late last night. The build is based on EA29 from the stock source. Though my rom doesn't touch the radio or baseband, meaning what ya have is what you'll keep. Currently I'm at work, but when I get home ill work on 0.4 version. I installed voodoo control thinking that it supports indulge, but only pro version does. I post more when I get home.

    i can confirm this works with an ee07 kernel

    so if you have ee07 and you install this you'll get the improvements and keep ee07
    if you have the original EA29 you'll get the improvements and keep ea29.

    Hey since it's 0.4 may you update the title please? I updated the phone with it (from 0.3) no problems at all. (didn't even factory reset). Is it possible to include the new baseband as part of the rom?

    Hmm that's odd about terminal. I guess just use sdk stock app remover to uninstall it. Then download it from the market and it will work. Which version of my rom ya using?

    Lol as for the title I can't seem to edit it. At the bottom of my firsr posts lists the changes. As for the baseband, ya talking about the new metro one or a custom one? If you're asking about the EE07, we have yet to get the real update package. We got no modded working kernel yet because samsungs source is incomplete. K0nane is talking with samsungjohn on getting a working kernel.

    The current download link is 0.4 btw.

    Its come to my attention that doing an odin wipe is not necessary. So no need to in the furture. It was just a safe method I was told, but its no longer needed.

Ill throw up an index page to list the file so you dont have to link directly ;) . If you would like I can give ya access to the ftp so you can change, add or move it around as needed. Send me a PM and Ill send ya the login info etc...

    I just really hate all the fileshare crap and not to mention people tend to get virus's etc... from clicking the crap they throw in to make it look like your getting the right file.

    I. The Rom so far has the following:
    Deodexed apks
    PermRoot
    Zipaligned
    Bloatware removed
    Added some etc tweaks: (speed ups of): GPS, .nomedia. Adhost (blocking popups)
    Unblocked package blocking

    Currently working on 0.5 with a custom web browser that allows desktop mode, along with a custom boot animation, and more goodies to come :D

    I was able to get a replacement boot animation working. Apparently the qmg format has been partially reversed.

    Desktop mode is when you use your browser like you would on a desktop without the browser keeping you stuck on the mobile version of web sites.
