Default [AOSPA - 4.2.2] PARANOIDANDROID 3.68 (HALO) [Toroplus] 18-JUL-2013

ParanoidAndroid for AOSP 4.2.2





Work in Progress
  • Before you go any further, 4.2 still has a quite a few bugs that need to be resolved by Google.
  • Please make sure you have backups for anything you don't want to lose.
  • Google apps are not official, this is a community hack, we have tested all apps but you could still encounter issues.
  • This is still a work in progress. we are working hard to tame 4.2, which brought significant changes and bugs.
  • Do not ask about CyanogenMod features. We will add more features in version 3.x, when we have a 100% stable base.

Installation
  • Update your recovery to the latest version. Pre 4.2 recoveries can mess up your sd card/storage. We recommend TWRP.
  • Download pa google apps: http://d-h.st/Do8 Updated 15-JUL-2013
  • Download rom: http://d-h.st/N7z Updated 18-JUL-2013
  • Follow PA on Google+ for changes and other info
  • Perform a factory reset in recovery, unless you are already on PA 2.99+
  • Flash ROM first, then gapps
  • Wipe dalvik & cache
  • Reboot and wait, first bootup can take up to 5 minutes, it will also restart once
  • Enter your Google account info, press home when you encounter the black screen
  • After the quirky bootup (thanks to aosp) is over, the rom should work normally
  • Do not restore system apps, system data and Google apps. This can cause bootloops and other problems due to mismatches from CM to AOSP and Android version 4.1.2 to 4.2.x

Features
  • Hybrid engine ported, Per App DPI and Per App Layout
  • Tablet UI back from the dead
  • Per app color
  • Quicksettings -> Quicktoggles (first draft, more to follow)
  • New recents implementation
  • We fixed the aosp lag in the recents view, well, most of it
  • New SystemUI Icons that can cope with transparent bars, thanks go to John Xionidis
  • See through Lockscreen is back
  • Transparent bars + Launcher2 modified to cope with it
  • 4.2 Walls and Sounds
  • Google stock apps
  • Extended Desktop



PER-APP-DPI/LAYOUT
This is not tablet mode! Hybrid engine allows you to target apps individually. You get to pick their actual layouts which can tranform content drastically. Keep in mind, this has nothing to do with build.prop hacks or DPI changes. We list all layouts an app brings, you choose one, its as easy as that. It does not matter if your device runs itself in Phone-, Phablet or Tablet-UI, your apps will always look as you like. On top of that you can scale apps, to fit your screen, that way you can even bring full fledged tablet apps and make them run perfectly. Nothing will break, nothing will shrink, your market will be fine. Additionally we have rewritten many parts of the android framework and fixed countless of AOSP bugs to make way for these modifications - our "tablet mode" runs better on a phone than on a real tablet, that is guaranteed.



PER-APP-COLOR
ParanoidAndroid's newest invention. Define apps in your regular hybrid panel. See your phone fade into the color definition of your current app, press home or go elsewhere and it fades back. Create as many combinations you like, you can even dabble with opacity. This feature is made possible by our hybrid engine, which is unique to this rom.

  • New option: "large" to trick an app thinking the device has a real big screen. some need it, like amazon kindle to jump into tabUI. some even react on it, gdrive will slightly adapt its layout - makes only sense if you give it a small dpi though.
  • The algorithm to extract the actual layout containers from apk files works more precise and can reveal more than before. there will still be a few apps left who do that layout stuff in java - we will add an override button for that, but in the meantime you can edit /system/etc/paranoid/properties.conf .layout=360 for phone-like UI, 600 for phablet, 720 = tablet, 1280 = super huge tablet
  • Several bugfixes from us and cm

  • New Hybrid code, keyboard troubles should be gone, apps that crop images or display weird, that should be gone aswell
  • PAD/PAL work in phonemode 100%, no weird toggles and stuff like that. you get full tablet apps without caveats
  • Settings cleanup, most of the garbage dpi options are gone, should be more intuitive - i ask you to not bring your old pad.props though some things changed. if you know what you do take a look and edit by hand
  • Trashed our LatinIME repo - not needed anymore

  • Navigationbuttons in phone mode are fixed
  • Default CM tuna kernel
  • Settings panel had a bug, you couldnt set android.dpi, decriptions sucked, too
  • Speed improvements, all launchers are buttersmooth now
  • Force option for widget scaling works again

You know what annoys me about this ROM? All the customizability! I am spending a lot of time getting everything where I like it and I love it. Noticed on other ROMs that allow me to hide the nav buttons that most games would screw up their orientation when I did hide the nav buttons so it was largely an unusable feature. But not on Paranoid! Really nice to play Max Payne is FULL full screen And again, thanks for sticking with the CM kernel.

EDIT: Only feature I yearn for is the ability to disable lock screen rotation.
