A
Alarm
How can I disable alarm icon?
  • You can enable/disable alarm icon in statusbar in Clock > Settings.
  • You can enable/disable next alarm information on cLock widget in RootBox Settings > cLock > Clock and alarm.

B
Battery
How can I save my battery? (Without flashing anything or undervolt kernel)
  • You can check all apps/functions which sync in background like GPS, Wlan or Social accounts (If not needed = disable)
  • Set the Brightness down (Settings > Display > Brightness)
  • Use dark (best black) theme & wallpaper & lockscreenwallpaper

C
cLock & Clock
How can I place cLock on lockscreen?

Look into Lockscreen section below.

Where do I configure cLock?

RootBox Settings > cLock. There you can configure Clock + Weather + Calendar settings. Note that all these settings apply to both homescreen and lockscreen cLock widget.

How can I change color of cLock / Clock widget?

As first, it is important to note, that there are two different widgets with the same digital clock layout:
  1. Digital clock is classic digital clock widget in a new design. It is configured by Settings of the Clock app. There you can beside other settings change color of clock / date / alarm and it will apply to the widget.
  2. cLock is brand new CM widget combining digital clock in a new design, weather forecast and calendar events. It is configured in RootBox Settings > cLock where you change font colors.

The localization and weather isn't working

Uninstall cClock and install in again from here.

D
DPI
How can I customize DPI?

For now there is no overall system DPI change possibility, so that u have to use the 'Settings > Hybrid settings'.
Here you should choose the stock PA-settings and then swipe to the right - this should open the PA-menu on the left.
Now choose ‘Interface’ and set at all dpi-regulators on your DPI you want to have.

Most apps also get this configuration, but some like Phone, Calculator or Chrome, have to been set manually.
That for change from ‘Interface’ to ‘Apps’ and choose the same DPI for all bright apps you can see at the top.

If you did this, you should have overall the same DPI.
If u want to have different DPI’s per app, just run free in the ‘Apps’-section.

My device isn’t supported in playstore after changing DPI

You have to use the MultiDPI-Playstore here from URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=4534385"] “MyLifeRocks10”[/URL]
=> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1839871

Data
I can't find the Data toggle!?

It's renamed to "signal".

E
Expanded Desktop
Can I use Expanded desktop on this ROM?

Yes. Enable it in RootBox Settings and switch it on or off in Power menu.

F
FC (any app)
After update or some system changes (e.g. DPI change), my app XY is ending with FC (Forced Close) repeatidly.

Anytime you have some app ending with FC, try:
  1. Settings > Apps > ALL > XY and click Clear data and try the app again.
  2. Reboot to recovery > advanced > fix permissions > reboot and try the app again.
  3. Reboot to recovery > wipe cache and advanced > wipe dalvik cache + after reboot repeat step 1 and try the app again.
  4. Try FULL WIPE installation of the ROM.

G
GAPPS
Do I have to flash GAPPS with ROM?

Generally musst have the Gapps package!
But u only have to flash it once, because since v4.0 (also some nightlies before), the backup function got enabled.
This will save the Gapps, so that a “dirty update*” with new Rom.zip is enough.

*If u don’t know what this means, check ‘Option 1’ under the point F->Flashing (without step 4 here)

What version of GAPPS should I download?

It's always recommended to use the newest Gapps
Latest Gapps you also can find here:
♦Dev-Host♦
♦AndroidFileHost♦

But you also can have a look on the unofficial Gapps from BaNkS!, which gives you different versions.

H
HALO

How to configure HALO?

There are three places where you configure HALO behavior:
1. Settings > RootBox Settings > HALO Settings where you configure basic HALO Notifications behavior
2. Settings > Apps > [Any App options] where you enable / disable concrete app Blacklist / Whitelist entry
3. Paranoid Android HALO))) App from Play Store where you configure apps for persistent notifications in so called floating mode.

What are options in Settings > RootBox Settings > HALO Settings?

- HALO policy allows you to choose between Blacklist (default) or Whitelist policy. In Blacklist mode are notifications from all app ON by default and you can explicitly configure some of them not to show HALO notifications by entering them to Blacklist. In Whitelist mode are notifications from all app OFF by default and you can explicitly configure some of them to show HALO notifications by entering them to Whitelist.
- Hide HALO after activity (disabled by default) allows you (if enabled) to hide HALO circle shortly after notification appears.
- Reverse HALO gestures changes behavior of dragging / tapping on HALO circle. Better to play with it or watch some youtube videos than describe this... Basics are: If enabled (default), then dragging is for tasking and double-tap swipe allows you to position circle or delete / deactivate it. If disabled, functions are reversed.

How to Blacklist / Whitelist apps?

Go to Settings > Apps > [Any App options] and there right under "Show notifications" checkbox you find either "Blacklist HALO notifications" or "Whitelist HALO notifications" according to policy set in HALO policy options.

What can I do using Paranoid Android HALO))) App?

Add some apps like Email, Gmail, Messaging, etc. using "+" button, press ">" button and you will see... You will have persistent notification in floating mode for those chosen apps. Try to drag HALO circle and you will get it.

How can I disable / deactivate HALO? (I don't want to see the circle on my screen)

Depending on your "Reverse HALO gestures" option:
- If enabled (default), then try quickly double-tap & swipe the circle. By this you will be able to position the circle or deactivate it by moving it to "trash".
- If disabled, then you can directly drag the circle. By this you will be able to position the circle or deactivate it by moving it to "trash".

How can I enable it again?

When HALO is deactivated, you can see special button in upper line of Notification drawer, that will activate it.

How can I uninstall HALO completely?

You can't. It is integral part of the ROM. You can only choose not to use it.

What if I cannot install .apk?

Wait for the next Nightly/Stable build. This will be solved. If you can't wait, then disable HALO, install what you need and enable it again.

Where can I find further information?

Take a look at this video by Oode.

I
Incremental download/update
What is the incremental download

This download allows all devices on the the direct lower version (for example the nightly 20130301) to update only the new and necessary files from newest nightly (for example the 20130302). This means a smaller file, a faster download and a faster flash!
This is anyway an experimental feature, which isn't available for all updates and can still bring some bugs with it!

How I do the incremental update

That for you have to look at the 'settings > update manager', search the newest nightly and check the point directly below the “normal” download. (it is only shown if u are on the directly below version!)
Download and flash it. (File is smaller than from "normal" download)

L
Lockscreen
How do I get shortcuts/targets on my lockscreen?

RootBox Settings > Lockscreen Shortcuts or RootBox Settings > Lockscreen Shortcuts/Targets.

How do I put cLock on my lockscreen instead of standard clock?

You have to drag clock on lockscreen. It will allow you to remove it. Then you can add cLock or any other widget instead. Note that cLock has only one setting that applies to homescreen and lockscreen.

How do I make cLock show my Weather and Calendar on lockscreen?

Rom Control > Lockscreen > Minimize Lockscreen Challenge.

How do I unlock faster when Minimize Lockscreen Challenge is enabled?

Rom Control > Lockscreen > Enable longpress to unlock.

N
NavBar
How do I change NavBar Color?

Rom Control > Navigation Bar > Navigation Bar color.

How do I enable NavBar transparency?

Rom Control > General UI > Transparency settings. See this post from descarao81 if you have problems with transparency using Nova or Apex Launcher.

Nightlies
What is Nightly? Should I flash Nightly or latest Stable version?

There is no major difference. Nightlies are builds which are built almost “every day” for everyone to try the latest sources/features merged to RootBox.
For all users who don’t want to flash “every day” and want have less bugs as possible, please just use the stable releases.

P
Pie
How do I enable Pie?

You activate it via “settings>RootBox settings>Pie controls”

How do I change the Color of Pie?

Settings > Hybrid settings > Interface.

How make I Pie open faster

Just set ‘quick’ in “settings>RootBox>Pie controls>Pie style”

S
Statusbar
How do I enable Statusbar transparency?

Rom Control > General UI > Transparency settings. See this post from descarao81 if you have problems with transparency using Nova or Apex Launcher.

How do I change the Statusbar behaviour?

Rom Control > General UI > Statusbar behaviour.
Here u have different options if/how the statusbar is/becomes visible for you.

What means the fast toggle for the Statusbar Toggles?

This will allow you to swipe from the right or left side of your statusbar (depending on what you choose) and it will go to your quick settings bypassing any notifications.

Everytime after reboot I got a “Low Storage” Message!?

It’s a problem which appears when the app ‘Viber’ is installed. Just move ‘Viber’ to sd card.
That for go to “settings>apps>Viber”

U
USB
I’m not able to connect my device as Mass-Storage to PC

Try deleting data from media storage. That for go to “settings>apps>all>media storage”

♦ Known issues ♦

In general, RootBox has AOKP issues as it is based on AOKP and some CM issues as it uses some features from CM and CM kernel as well. This list is not complete list of AOKP / CM / RootBox issues. It is a list of known issues that are discussed by RootBox users within development threads or support thread.
  • GPS locking problems [workaround: try this] - reported on 20130422 and confirmed on current builds / not all users are hit by this issue (maybe it is location specific are other way random occurring issue)
  • SMS gestures not working properly - always only 1st gesture works, multiple gestures not working [no workaround] - confirmed on latest Nightlies
  • Sound disturbances, mostly dropouts using BT headset or BT car kit [no workaround] - confirmed on 3.9.1 & 4.x & latest Nightlies / not all users are hit by this issue
  • Some users report freezes and other issues when playing games [no confirmed workaround known / setup with Dorimanx is working for some users] - not confirmed / not easy to reproduce / no relevant logs so far
  • Bluetooth DSP Manager settings not working (Speaker and Headset are OK) [workaround: use Speaker settings, it also influence Bluetooth audio output]- confirmed on 3.8 and further
  • When ending call via Bluetooth, phone freezes for several (about 3 - 5) seconds [workaround: be patient, it is really only 3 - 5 sec.] - confirmed on 3.9 and further

♦ Kernel corner ♦

Stock kernel
RootBox uses CM kernel from CyanogenMod as a stock kernel. This kernel is very stable and battery friendly and stock kernel is always recommended mainly for users that do not have special demands. Please, remember that RootBox is multi-device ROM and it needs multi-device kernel. Creator of this ROM even do not own S2 and he cannot support alternative kernels for this device in any way. Therefore stock kernel is only kernel with the official support from Bajee11.

Download
Thanks to hawkerpaul’s knowledge is Hannibal226 providing stock kernels for selected builds here and here.

Non-Stock kernels
There are many RootBox users with S2 devices using non-stock kernels. Most popular and compatible are Dorimanx, KangBang and Siyah kernels.

Dorimanx
  • Dorimanx kernel is developed by Dorimanx (note that he is also RootBox user)
  • For current RootBox builds use 9.X branch
  • Changelogs, download links and other important info on development thread OP
  • Support, Q&A, discussion on non-development thread (Please, consider to ask there for support, if you have really kernel specific questions or issues, like STweaks, OC/UV, BLN, cron, etc.)

KangBang
  • KangBang is the kernet for AOSP based 4.2 ROMs.
  • It is based on CyanogenMod smdk4412 kernel, i.e. it is based on current stock kernel for i9100 & n7000.
  • It is modded to provide more schedulers, governors, BLN and other features.
  • It is available with CWM or TWRP recovery.

Siyah

Hey, anyone is using swiftkey and having also the problem that the keyboard i just usuable with 160dpi? I changed android system to 200, but can't use swiftkey because not all letters are visible (and with 160dpi it's really small...). Stock keyboard is okay, but when i longpress a letter not all options are visible (when i longpress . then i can't see the ? for example). Tried nearly all dpi/resolution with swiftkey, but can't get it to be visible without changing dpi to 160...


(Just a suggestion: maybe someone is posting some screenshots and which apps he changed in per-app settings, because i guess there will be many question like "how to make it look like dual panel; what is a good dpi and resolution for lockscreen" etc.)

I had the same problem. So far only way I know how to cope with it is not to change System UI DPI in Per-App settings. Instead I changed my overall system DPI to 200 and I am tuning DPI for some special apps then. See Help-Index for details on changing DPI.

Here are the tiny issues ive encountered with latest nightly. (these might have been reported before, if so i am very sorry i havent kept track of this rom since the 4.2.1 updates)

1. Cant send MMS (this is probably normal cause i cannot modify APNs)
2. Cannot disable vibration on pattern unlock
3. Cannot use shortcuts with pattern unlock like in 3.2
4. My clock/weather lockscreen widget is too big (see picture)
5. I cannot manage to have status bar completly transparent when im on desktop, it is only fully transparent when im in lockscreen. Maybe due to Nova Launcher?
