Important notes:
1. If you want to say "Thanks!"

There are many ways to show your support to the developer. You can:
  • Press the "Thanks" button.
  • Hit the donation button and "buy me a beer".
  • Share your opinion about my work and write some feedback in respective thread.
  • Advertise my work to your friends.
  • Rate my thread with 5 stars.
Every way of support is highly appreciated, but it's not expected!
2. Sharing policy

This forum is about sharing. If you want to use any part of my work, please feel free to do it but remember about some simple rules:
  • Inform me about using my work by sending me a message. You don’t need my permission, just inform me.
  • Include link to my thread from where you took particular files.
  • Give proper credits for what you used.

Sharing is one thing, but please respect some areas of my work like:
  • ROM name - "Android Revolution HD", "Android Revolution", "Revo HD", "AR HD" etc.
  • Graphics used in my threads, especially head-banners designed exclusivity for me.
  • Other parts of my work that are not supposed to be used by others without proper permission.
Please let me keep my threads design unique. I’m sure you can do something even better yourself!
3. Support

If you have any issues or questions, please feel free to post them in the respective thread. Due to my commitments in real life I can't answer every PM, tweet or facebook post.
If you want to get the fastest and the best answer - ask the question in the thread. Every month I need to remove about 1.000 new messages from my XDA inbox. I’m sure it’s better if I spend this time cooking new ROMs.
4. Signature banners for users

Due to the increasing number of users flashing my ROMs we introduced some time ago 3 special groups of members.
  • Android Revolution HD Recognized User – every user might get this rank with proper banner by being active in my thread (or threads).
    Helping users to solve problems, answering questions or preparing threads with add-ons for Android Revolution HD are the most common ways to gain this rank. Just be active and we’ll contact you!

  • Android Revolution HD Advanced User – every user might get this rank with proper banner by doing some amazing modification, application, theme etc. for Android Revolution HD.
    Creating simple bootanimation might not be enough, but you never know! Having Recognized User status before is not needed!

  • Android Revolution HD Supporter – every user who shared some server space with us (with proper bandwidth) will get this banner. Please keep in mind we can't use DropBox shared folders.
    What we can use is minimum 20 GB of space and 10 Mbit upload speed. If you want to donate some server space to us, please contact me via private message.
Apart of those special banners, every user might use one of our amazing user banners collected in this thread.

Finally, thanks for using my work! I hope you will enjoy Android Revolution HD!

For Android Revolution HD [all versions]

Performance Tweaks for Android Revolution HD
  • data_writeback journalism for /system, /data and /cache partitions.
This mod will turn ON data_writeback for all 3 partitions - system, data and cache. This will drastically improve I/O performance (mostly on write operations) at the expense of file system integrity in certain situations, like unexpected system shutdown. The risk is not extreme, but still bigger then regular. Use this to improve your system performance, but you flash it at your own risk!

Download here:

Android Revolution HD EXT4 Tweaks v.0.1
  • Force GPU rendering on 2D operations.
This mod is working similar to "Render GUI with GPU" option in Development Settings. Flashing this will force whole system to use GPU rendering (instead of CPU) for all kind of 2D/3D operations. This might improve 2D operations performance, but keep in mind that some apps are not working correctly with GPU rendering. After using this mod you no longer need to tick "Render GUI with GPU" in settings. Even if un-ticked it will be still working. Flash it at your own risk!

Download here:

Android Revolution HD GPU Rendering v.0.1

Quote:

Q 1: After flashing Android Revolution HD my battery drains much faster. What can I do?
A: Please charge your battery to 100%, boot your device in ClockworkMod Recovery and go to Advanced ---> Wipe Battery Stats. Also see Question 7.
Also please read this ---> [GUIDE] Enlarge your battery life : an attempt to fix the battery drain
And this ---> [How to] Brilliant Battery Life 100% working!
For more details about wiping battery stats please read this

Q 2: When recording HD video, the playback of the clip keeps freezing. How to fix it?
A: This is probably SD card problem. Format your SD card (FAT32 recommended) to gain silky smooth playback.

Quote:

Q 3: Is there any alternative for SetCPU? I think it slows downy my devivce.
A: You can application called No-frills. Remember to check "Allow on boot" option.

Q 4: My Gallery app force close when I tap on any folder How to fix it?
A: Probably you removed Google+ application. Just restore it. (Thanks to Hunteres for the solution)

Quote:

Q 5: Do I need to wipe data partition when upgrading from old version of Android Revolution HD?
A: I always recommend wiping data partition but it's absolutely necessary only if I mention that in the changelog. But normally you can live without it.
Wipe data partition if you experience any issues.

Q 6: I have some strange issues with my ROM that nobody reported before. What should I do in first place?
A: In first place you should check, if the MD5 Checksum is correct. Then flash ROM again and see if the issue is gone. A lot of strange issues can be solved this way.

Quote:

Q 7: I had SetCPU installed on Android Revolution HD, then I flashed new version of AR HD and SetCPU doesn't work any more. How to fix it?
A: Please reinstall SetCPU.

Q 8: I can't send/receive MMS or I can't connect with mobile data connection. How can I fix it?
A: Please check your MMS settings or mobile data connection APN settings.

Quote:

Q 9: My phone got random freezes or reboots. How can I fix it?
A: Every CPU is different. It seems that your CPU doesn't like OC or UV (undervolt). Set your CPU to default 1GHz.
If it doesn't help, then you need to flash default kernel from the second post.

Q 10: My GPS signal is very weak or GPS is not working at all. How can I fix it?
A: There are some solutions:
1. You can download and install FasterFix to improve your signal strength.
2. You can download and install GPS Status & Toolbox to manage your GPS settings.
3. Turn off "Fast boot" under "Settings" ---> "Power" and reboot your phone.
4. Wipe the EFS data in your device. Read this for further instuctions. This is very effective solution.
5. Read this, this, this & this
6. [Trick] Speed Up Satelite Fix for GPS on Android

Quote:

Q 11: My clock/weather widget doesn't show my location. How can I fix it?
A: Please clear data from Google Maps, Clock Widget, Weather, HTC weather sync provider and Weather Provider.

Q 12: My Quadrant score is not as high as on different ROM. What does it mean?
A: It means absolutely nothing. Benchmarks on Android System are more or less lottery and they are not showing the real system performance.
There are many settings that can force Quadrant to show more then 3000 points but it's faked performance, that actually can slow down your phone in some circumstances.
What I always emphasize is a real performance, the one you can feel under your fingers. Remember that I/O has some limit and surpassing it shows just a numbers without true ratio.
Also keep in mind that Quadrant has support for Android Gingerbread only in version 1.1.7 and higher.

Quote:

Q 13: My Wi-Fi doesn't reconnect automatically after boot. How to fix it?
A: Disable fastboot in settings or check this solution.

Q 14: My Gallery app force close when I tap on any folder How to fix it?
A: Probably you removed Google+ application. Just restore it. (Thanks to Hunteres for the solution)

I guess it comes with underclock and undervolt as well. And probably you can adjust clocking and volting as well as the gouvernor to your needs.

Maybe a title change is in order Mike? I love your other ROMS, but the title here is misleading and innacurate.
