Default [ROM][4.2.2][AOKP/CM/PA]Vanilla RootBox[05/21/13][v4][Per-App-DPI][PIE]





Note*
Now that there is official support for Toro, Bajee is building Main and Nightlies. I will continue with my Unofficial builds for myself and post for anyone that wants them, similiar to what Maguro user Sykomaniac did with his RootBox thread.

Description

Vanilla RootBox is built straight from RootBox sources and always carries a very light installation with no extra/useless apps. This means, you can enjoy a pure Android experience combined with AOKP/CM features and some CM cherry-picks. Keep in mind Jelly Bean is only at the beginning stage of development and there will be minor bugs. Every RootBox releases are stable and always up to the challenge for a daily usage. If you're wondering how this ROM differs from any other AOKP roms out there, I only have one thing to say: Try it yourself and choose the one that meets your requirements.

Per-App Settings

This guide will help you setup your phone with new Per-App Settings.

First, all credits associate to Xposed Frameworks and Modules goes to Rovo89 for sharing his work and making it open source for everyone. You guys should all buy him a beer.


Steps to follow:
  1. Install Xposed Frameworks by going in Modules Management>Install/Update
  2. Enable Per-App Settings by going in Modules Management> Modules>Tick Per-App Settings (You should reboot your phone at this point)
  3. Setup your phone : Per-App Settings>Choose your app>Set DPI/Resolution/Tablet UI/Language> Press Save on top
  4. Your app should now display in your preferred settings. If it doesnt, kill the app and restart it or reboot phone.

Contribute to RootBox

Those interested in making wallpapers and bootanimation for RootBox, send an email to rootbox.rom@gmail.com with the following:

Information
  • Name
  • Email

Wallpapers
  • Attach wallpaper in email
  • Two sizes are required: HDPI and XHDPI

I'll review them and add the wallpapers in the next release. I will also choose the best one as the default wallpaper for official releases.

Bootanimation
  • Attach bootanimation or paste download link in the email.
  • Two sizes are required: HDPI and XHDPI

Wallpaper Resolution
  • HDPI: 960 x 800
  • XHDPI: 1440 x 1280

You can also contribute by creating icons for settings. Use proper sizes and always include compatibility for HDPI and XHDPI.

The reason behind this is very simple. I'm always busy and I've neglected the visual aspect of RootBox for a while now. It's time to polish it with new visuals!

Not for me, I got a gps lock in about 20 sec on a clean flash... and about 5 sec every time after that. (first one always takes a bit longer)
