So as all of you know me and CheckROM Team teamed to form one massive task force to deliver to you the best!
We have been working on the ROM for some time and now its time for you to enjoy it.
Thanks to Our Server Admin geistteufel (He hosts all our work on his server)
The Rom is built to be Fast, Stable and to Save Battery
The ROM will come as a Base i.e
It will have the Stock Samsung Look to it and will have all major tweaks to it, The Kitchen app from now on will come built into the ROM itself and it will be Locked to only our ROM.The Kitchen will now Auto Update itself when ever i publish a Update, So you will always be using the updated app.
All the Mod's,Themes and other Stuff that you can customize will be aired by the KitchenPro.
Make sure you have the latest Revolution Rom kitchen running in your phone
It may happen that after a package has been installed from the Revolution Kitchen Pro app, on the first boot you phone hangs at the Boot logo, just long press power button and restart your phone!
I'd like to point out that i am not responsible for any issue with your phone! Also it's highly recommended to backup efs folder before to start playing with your phone!
For those people who is coming from LeoMar75 Revolution ROM 2.7.1 and has installed Kitchen Pro app v1.1
-Backup user data with the kicthen v1.1
-full wipe and download the new rom
Hopefully with the kitchen app v1.2 that comes with the new ROM you will be able to restore you user data backup but you need to copy files from /sdcard/download/Revolution/userdata_backup/ to /sdcard/download/CheckROM_REVO/userdata_backup/
Kitchen Pro Application - Build your Rom as you wish!
The kitchen Pro App comes with the ROM, however you will find the apk attached
The Kitchen pro app only work's with our ROM, it will not work on any other ROM neither do we plan to make it work on any other ROM.
I have developed this app/sources from scratch and it is copyrite protected and any illegal reproduction of our work/Apk Tooling is a offence.
When The KitchenPro App gets an Update it means that the .apk it self is update this dosent mean that the Kitchen Content is updated, Content update in the app is done manually either by Me or GC who ever gets time to do it! So Dont Rate the app on the Content it Hosts, Give it 5Stats for the Revolutionary app it is
We have nearly 100000 Regular users for 2 devices.Buy us a couple of beer (and use the "Thanks" button!).
Imagine if every KitchenPro User had to purchace the app & also the amount of time we have spent in making the App and the ROM
But we love sharing so we will always remain free, But our Servers Dont Come Cheap
- DK = Dark Knight (just a name for the Edition)
- CWM = ClockworkMod Recovery (mostly used to install new ROMs)
- SGS2 / GS2 = Samsung Galaxy SII
- lagfix = makes your Galaxy S fly!
- Firmware = Base System of our Galaxy S II (provided by Samsung)
- Circle Battery Mod = shows your battery in 1% steps
- FC = Force Close (Crash of an App / Component)
- BLN = Backlight Notifications
- more defintions to come, just ask them in the thread
Q:What is odex/deodex?
Every android application comes with the extention '.apk'. Packaged with every apk is a .odex file which contains parts of the application which helps speed up the boot process and preloads it.
an odex file is an optimized version of a classes.dex file that has optimizations that are device specific. In particular, an odex file has dependencies on every "BOOTCLASSPATH" file that is loaded when it is generated. The odex file is only valid when used with these exact BOOTCLASSPATH files. dalvik enforces this by storing a checksum of each file that the odex file is dependent on, and ensuring that the checksum for each file matches when the odex file is loaded.
Deodexing is a way of repackaging the apk such that it is reassembled into the classes.dex file. Everything is put together in one place, and this is helpful because it eliminates any chances of a modified apk conflicting with other odexed parts.
to deodex a file using baksmali, it has to load every BOOTCLASSPATH file that the odex depends on. By default, baksmali will try to find the 5 "core" BOOTCLASSPATH files in the current directory. It can use either a jar/apk (with a classes.dex inside), or an odex file
So to sum up everything, a .dex file contains the cache used by Dalvik VM during boot and this .dex file is located inside the application. On the other hand, .odex file is an optimized version of the same .dex file but it is located outside the application.
What do I lose/gain using odex/deodexed ROM?
The upper hand deodexed rom has over odexed is integration. Every ROM maker loves deodexing the rom because of two main reasons:
Modification of apk becomes easier
ROM is open to theme modifications
So, as an end used, you would most likely want to have a deodexed version of a ROM to take full advantage of android freedom. However, note that you won't lose out on performance in an odexed ROM.
Q: After falshing siyah kernel kitchen Pro app does not works anymore
A: CWM5 comes with siyah kernel, this custom recovery has a bug related to mount point for sdcard (internal/external). Two possibility:
-You can still use the kitchen app for downloading packages but in order to flash packages you should reboot manually your phone in recovery mode and install packages located in /sdcard/download/CheckROM_REVO/
-If you remove your external sdcard the kitchen will work fine!
Q: Which Theme to flash or will this theme work
A: Any theme that is built for XXKH3 Deodexed is flashable with the ROM.
But the only Downfall to this is that you will end up loosing a few features like Jkay Themes app!!
Now the Themes that dev the Themes at Checkrom.com or our official themes dev's who make themes for us make there respective themes over CheckROM so when u flash there themes you don't lose any features
Q: How this ROM is different from others ?

Install it from the Kitchen if you need it.
Q: I have Kernel X, my Boot animations don't work, help...
A:Some Kernels don't support Bootanimations or need special files (Speedmod, Lulz etc.). Install a Kernel which supports it, like Rage, Nimphitamine, Siyah etc.
Q: How can I sort my Apps alphabetically?
A:Use the App "Appzorter" from the market.
Or install Touchwiz 4.5/ modded Touchwiz/ 4G Touchwiz/ Use another launcher.
Q: How can I get more Functions in the Dropdown Quickpanel?

A:Use JKay Deluxe Settings app.
Q: When is theme xyz coming to the Kitchen???
A:If the Team said that a new theme will be added to the Kitchen, then it will be available as soon as its done.
Enable Notifications in the Kitchen App if you can't wait.
Q: I am not able to flash via Kitchen???
A:Delete Clockworkmod folder
Previously to make the kitchen flash in older version of CWM5 we need to use a salte hash file that was placed in the Clockworkmod folder, Now with the updated CWM5 the actually problem with CWM5 was fixed by the respective creator!
So now what happens is that all you people have that salted hash file remaining in ur sd card that doesn't allow to flash stuff in the newer better CWM5, thats why when u delete the Folder it stats working coz the salted hash file gets deleted!
Now you may ask why delete the folder, when u can delete the file only!!
LOL answer is simle the Android os never recognizes the file there so when u open myfiles you never find the salted hash file inside the clockworkmod folder! You can use other apps and methods to delete the file but then there is the obvious questions from noobs!!
So Moral the problem is only with that one salted hash file and not ur backup

2-Download the theme directly from Vertumus thread and put the Zip into the root of your internal sd (not external but internal mass memory)
3-Reboot in CWM
4-Wipe cache partition
5-Wipe dalvik cache
6-Flash the ICS Zip

Preferences >Visual Settings>Font>Apps Labels Color = I chose a midgrey
Preferences >Screen Settings>Grid Size = Standard
Preferences >App Drawer Settings>Grid Size = Standard
Preferences >Advanced Settings>High Quality Drawing = Y
Then Choose the Snowdrift widget 4x2
>Set it up to your locale
>Tick "Fallback to Yr URL"
>Tick "Use transparent background"
>Widget font color "Mid Grey"
>Widget day/time color "Cyan Blue"
Then Choose the Smooth Calendar

Then choose Minimalist Text 1x1
>Tap to access setup
>Untick "Show Background"
>Custom Layout, Press and hold text icons and drop into the bin.
>Press the little icon with the green bar across it to create a second row
>Press the little + Icon, Scroll along to "Battery Level" and drop it on the top row
>Repeat and scroll along to "Battery Voltage" and drop it on the top row

Also if you like extended controls add a 2x1 and put your most used icons (2) and then make the make it transparent, with mid grey icon colour, and a black outer blur.
Any questions just ask
