    If anybody wanted to know what SCRom stands for cause some one thought I copy the name from another rom with a similar name.My rom's name is (Samsung Crasher Rom) aka SCRom
    Please backup before installing.

    This project has merge to a newer rom with a exe/batch hybrid.
    So that means this will no longer be updates. Please go toHere for newer releases.

    If you like my work and wish to help donations are always appreciated!

    Anyone have a CWD backup for the Repp R680? I am both newb & noob to the rooting scene and deleted my backup when I factory reset my phone. Any help will be appreciated. I'm gonna spam this message until I get my 10 posts then I'll post a new thread. Sorry mods! My family is without a phone until I fix this!

    Just got my hands on one of these phones, thought I would say thanks for making this and your work dedicated to it. As well the CWMRepp fix and recovery "makes me feel safe modding this now".

    Mean time, it would be kinda nice if you can get maybe Compcache and Swap enabled on this in some form. Since even with custom rom and removal of bloatware, it appears to still have difficulties with ram management after awhile. The addition of Flash 11 makes it more so sometimes on flash derived websites that do not have mobile versions.

    I would modify the current SCRom 0.4. But I have little understanding of how to do it. Also maybe see if possible to make this from RFS file system to EXT4.

    Also a bug note, seems file manager crashes if say like viewing app files list. Say Minebuilder, I can put it on the SD and go to it after installing and view all the files, textures and sounds. However when I reach the bottom it just crashes, I do not know how to get log files or of that sorts, so kinda useless there.

    But I will say the Build.props tweaks for GPU, the Debug SW fix and so forth, really speed up gaming on this.

    Well all I have to say at moment, I highly look forward to updates. I beg you do keep attempting at this phone for a fully optimized and stable custom rom. Esp if you can get support that was suggested above "would help this budget entry phone a lot".

    Ok Can we get the stock email app back and the boot screen.And The Zeam launcher may be fast but it has no themes and virtually no support would love to get Holo Launcher as default launcher lol. Ty Also none of the windows installers work they crash my phone and install nothing,and after using them can't use SCRom with init.d cwm,SU immediately crashes after installing anything that requires root privileges.

    There is better email apps then stock, by far better. And I agree, I tried to restore boot screen and animation, but I think it was disabled in the boot image itself, therefore I couldn't restore it myself. I have no idea how to extract and recombine a boot image safely.

    I would say use CWM to install the OS rom. I had absolute 0 issues, but zeam launcher crashes sometimes, and always on from power off to power on. Also sometimes the power off button "on screen" does not work. I can tap it, but phone does nothing.

    I am using init.d rom without issues, even added latest adreno 200 libs after flashing, I ADB pushed them. I will say, if you are that advanced, it makes a very noticeable performance. Also there is a few more build tweaks I found that makes good difference.

    PS: Be sure to wipe caches, data, etc before flashing OS rom. I had issues first time with a few apps, but after doing second time, flawless performance except the zeam crashing.

    I agree with wiping the caches but have found that cw does not always do so..and that causes problems,check the error log, it has rw and w errors when trying it can't find delvic cache on an either stock rooted or init_d.I use a root explorer to delete delvic and imediately rebboot to cw .I have same issues with crashing Zeam but no issues with shutdown buttons.And one other thing it needs is CM 7 theme manager lol

    Last night I got reading and thinking. I went into CW and wiped dalvik cache, then used ADB to remove Zeam launcher and pushed another there. The new launcher works alot smoother.

    I did some custom mods to SamsungCrashers rom after installing it, before first boot using ADB. Such as pushing latest adreno 200 libs, some custom build tweaks. I dont think Zeam launcher liked the adreno libs though and settings, otherwise it worked fine "sometimes".

    For such a phone like this, it has great amount of bite when set so. But I really think it could use CompCache "compressed ram". It could help in situations and esp since flash is on this now.

    FYI, I got the free HoloLauncher, got the APK on my phone, saved to PC. Using ADB, I remounted the NAND and removed zeam.org package from Apps, not a clean uninstall since PM "Package manager" refused to remove it since phone must be booted normally.

    After removing, pushed the HoloLauncher as a test, booted up phone. everything worked fine. The launcher is not crashing and is much smoother then zeam was. However power button, then tap on shutdown the confirm dialog tends to not appear sometimes. Otherwise its fine.

    SeaWry,I used RomToolkit,first install your launcher of choice and make it default launcher.Then use app manager to convert Zeam to user app and immediately uninstall it.Reboot and go back to RomToolkit and app manager and convert your new launcher to system app.use root browser to clear delvik and then a final reboot to clock work do a system restore to factory clear all caches and do a backup .You now have a new room with your new launcher as default.The answer to the boot issue is in init_rc it has the boot locked.I have no idea how to unlock it.

    Thanks for info, but it is all fine. I used Android Commander and some other methods to clean up and refine my install.

    Also good news to anyone who even comes to this dust gathering phone thread.

    Samsung has released the Source Code for this phone, Samsung Open Source Release Center


    SCH-R680, USCC. It is a 128MB download and contains as seen in screenshot.

    Previous message removed, obsolete.

    EDIT: Ok, I forgot but someone reminded me. So here is the info I used, I had absolute no issues. I have not yet to encounter anymore issues. But I do notice performance increase.


    Download the zip, open it. We wont be flashing anything, but pushing and deleting, or using Android Commander "what I suggest, makes life simple".

    Extract libGLES_android200.so from EGL folder, should be last Modified 2012-03-04, the others ignore. As you see they are last modified in 2008. The ones that are default on our phone, the SCH-R680, is from 2011. This lib above is the only updated one.

    Now, simple as to say, you just need to delete current one in /system/lib/egl and then replace with above.

    You can try some the build tweaks, but only most are already in phone anyway and set as they are "by SamsungCrasher". So you shouldn't need to mess with these. A good one to add that is not existing though is the camera quality one. ro.media.enc.jpeg.quality=100

    Sadly I poked around at the kernel source and such, but its all mind boggling at me because I am no Linux person, i use it, but know nothing of its coding nor android.

    Hey guys, i accidentally erased my back up and system files after a successful root... ive spent the last few days searching for answers but all this linux stuff is french to me... any suggestions?
  15. SeaWry

    SeaWry Lurker

    Use A CWM "hopefully you using CWM" rom by SamsungCrasher and sadly you lost your data files.

    Just put a unzipped ROM of your choice for CWM, be stock or modified one in a folder on your SD card called clockworkmod/backup/your rom here

    Then boot into Recovery using Down volume, Home key and hold those 2 and power. From there restore that recovery folder you just made. Sadly though nothing can be done to get your data back.

    diceman1000 Member

    I got it to flash by unzipping it and putting the unzipped in the backup file for CWM of my SD card, but when i flashed there was no launcher... flashed back to stock for now
  19. SeaWry

    You not suppose to. You are meant to extract the folder in the .rar achive to a folder directory on your SD card called


    Then boot into ClockWork Recovery and from there do a Restore and select the folder, either stock or SCR 0.4. DO NOT forget to do a backup first.

    DO NOT forget to wipe dalvik cache as well Data Cache. This can help prevent issues, such as the post above this about Launcher not showing, I had that issue once as seen above in the thread here.

    However in the end I replaced the launcher in the Rom itself with Holo launcher. Since Zeam launcher is dead and no longer updated.

    I highly suggest getting Clock Work Recovery as the Recovery, makes things FAR more simple then using windows batch system. As well its less foolproof and safer imo.

    I did just that, no launcher...

    I see, well then fancy replacing it manually?

    Before though, do you have an USB data cable for your phone.

    If so also then that is excellant. Just go into CWM, restore the rom of your choice BUT DO NOT RESTART. Instead go and Mount /system while the phone is connected to a PC.

    Then open and if dont have install Android SDK with Platform Tools, you will need ADB.exe for this.

    If so then you can replace the launcher apk in the /system/apps. Its org.Zeam.apk just to state. Personally id say find the apk to the free Holo launcher, remove org.zeam.apk, then push the holo launcher apk in replace.

    Basically in adb console you need to type this somewhat.

    adb del /system/apps/org.zeam.apk however I would suggest doing adb shell then doing ls /system/apps

    Then find and see if org.zeam.apk is there

    if so then you can just delete it like that, by del /system/apps/apk name

    Then exit the adb shell, or just type exit to say.

    Or put the holo launcher apk on the SD card, then just cp /sdcard/apkname /system/apps

    Then double check using ls /system/apps

    If the apk name is there, all done.

    If you already know how to push, pull, delete using CMD adb, then ignore this.

    Personally I know what you mean by your issue, hence why I replaced Zeam launcher.
