Phone :::::::::::::::::::: Rom Changelog and FAQ :::::::::::::::::
Changelog:



Quote:

I will not respond to technical questions via pm anymore. Reason is very simple and is because users just dont read and ask me same old known things again and again.
Please just read a little. I have spend many times to provide builds and i cannot spend double time to answer same questions again and again especially when they are in Q&A of xda forum
Noobs are just accepted....lazy people are NOT

ROM FAQ


FAQ in generall. list will go on in time..

1)Do i need to full wipe coming from another rom ?
Well generally no.First you can do is to take a nandroid backup(backup from recovery),then just wipe
dalvik n cache and proceed to install rom.
Normally inside same api level(ex 4.1.2) there is no need of full wipe.
If for ex next version is 4.1.2 again then you just proceed with only dalvik n cache wipe.
If next version is 4.2.2 then you proceed with a back up file and try to see if you find any problem.
If you experienced problems then is time for full wipe.

2)Full wipe guide.
Backup your important files(both from internal and external storage)
Format your sd card(settings/storage)
Put rom in your external sd card
Reboot to recovery
Take a nandroid backup
Wipe cache partition
Wipe dalvik cache
Wipe data(factory reset)
Go to mounts and storage
Format cache
Format system
Format preload
Format /sdcard (internal)
Format data/media
Install rom
Reboot

3)Is there a way to save apps,settings and progress after full wipe?
Well...yes. There is titanium backup app which i dont trust at all because if there is an error it will come back.
My personal way is to:
Under settings/backup and restore tick two boxes: backup this device to google account and automatic restore.
In google account settings make sure you have tick the option for app data sync.
In scloud there is a sync option which is able to backup your snote,sms and call log.
Make a "sync now" before you start.
After fresh rom install when device boot for first time, after language selection put your wifi code(or not if it is out of security)
In next page there is a samsung account sign in.Ignore it and press skip.
After that there is the gmail account sign in. Sign in and press next.
Ypu ll see a page that inform you if you want to backup this device to google account and if you want to automatic restore it.
Ensure both boxes are checked and press next.
Skipp all other setup like dropbox etc.
Now all your apps and wifi hotspots will start to coming into your device and also your wallpaper.
Have some patience and all will come except your launcher layout.
After that go to settings/accounts and sign in to your samsung account and let it sync too.
Now your call log and sms list and messages will be in your device.
Thats it.

4)A random application stop working or giving me an FC (force colose) . What can i do? (known well working app in others phone)
Well depending on app always the best way is to go to settings/apps/all apps find it
clear its data and cache and reboot.If problem still there reboot into recovery
wipe dalvik n cache.If after all that is there re download rom and start all over.

5)A random application stop working or giving me an FC (force colose) . What can i do? (known NOT well working app in others phone)
This is a bug and probably i m responsible for that so you have to gendly report it to me to correct it providing a fix
or in the next rom version.

6)My battery drains a lot? Why?
There is an app in playstore called better battery stats. Its worth every penny.
It will help you and me to solve your problem.
In general an app is responsible for this so you(we together) have to find this app to stop draining.

7)Cant find the app that "is there" . How can i find it?
Check your app drawer. Most times when we are looking for somthing is in front of us and we are unable to see it
If it is a data app it will be in your downloaded apps.If its not there you re either hide it or delete it by mistake.

this is my opinion at the end about xxella and everything about sudden death at this time based on reports.

sammy have release an update with including bootloader that says sudden death is fixed while not yet confirmed.
We can agree that have fixed exynos bug while we have it too.
Ok till now.

I have receive plenty of emails from ppl ask me my opinion about it or if my rom is safe or even from ppl affected from that.
3 devices till now die with my rom.9 with stock rom and plenty of others mixed with other roms.
there are also other sammy models died.

As far as i can see this have nothing to do with the rom itself or the fw generally and this is true.
So to continue this i start asking several things like date of purchase or region or even time and date to see if there have something to do with solar activity(funny for some but still true,i m a tehnician anyway).
So asking more and more i realize that the only common between died devices was only the bootloader.
From 4.1.2 ota update and later on if you try to root your device you will get an exlamation mark upper left while you not get that before.
The reason is that after 4.1.2 the bootloader was changed during update to this.
All devices at least with the ppl that i spoke to have the recent bootloader in their devices as it comes with the update.i also saw that in many devices inside my store.
So maybe sammy messed up a little with this in its try to record binary count and now repairs that with the new update.maybe bootloader messed up just with the latest fw 's after pol roll out.
So xxella is nothing more than xxell4 with new bootloader and 4-6 more apps.
The attention here is that if you flash official fw you will loose the ability to go back to old bootloader as this is not possible for the moment,
so at the very end of this i m suggesting to download and flash an old bootloader(just be careful) and then flash an official 4.0.4 wiht all 3 files(pda,pit,phone) and root with cf root and then flash custom rom (mine or whatever if you like something else).
You will get rid of the updated bootloader and also from exclamation mark and you will be mind free from the sudden death bug at least till those lines written and from my reports....
If i have further news i will inform you all.
I m stuck searching this, thats why i only answer to specific questions

choice is absolutely yours...

If you want to revert back to old bootloader pick sudden death fix by reverting back to old bootloader from the attachment









Also please READ CAREFULL this one ..... it will solve many questions.
All Credits to corrsea for this.
Specially thank you my friend

Sotmax spends much time and energy on producing the ROM, as does Yank555 on his kernels. Please remember that for both of them this is only a hobby. They both have lives outside of XDA with the same real life pressures as the rest of us - work, family, relationships and social lives etc. I know that they both feel a sense of responsibility for their followers on XDA and as a consequence both put a lot of effort into sorting out our problems. But most of the time that is exactly what they are - our problem. So please before asking for help read, read, read usually the answer is already there. Let our Dev's do what they do best - building ROM's and Kernels. That way we all benefit

I'm not suggesting that you don't ask questions - just read back a bit, do a search or think a bit before you do.

Now that I've got that off my chest here goes

1. Make a nandroid backup of your current setup! You can restore this if you run into issues. Save it on your external SD card or even keep a copy on your computer. Use the .tar format. If you use the blobs system you will run into issues with media scanner.

2. If you are new to the Rom. ie coming from stock, another ROM, CM10, AOKP etc then the first thing you need to do is a full wipe. If you are unsure of how to do that then I would suggest that you use this tool.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1832326

Now before you rush off and wipe everything on your phone BE CAREFUL

DON'T use MEGAWIPE unless you are facing unresolveable problems and need a completely clean phone from which to start from scratch. SUPERWIPE or FACTORY RESET should be sufficient.

DON'T put the ROM zip file on your internal SD (ie internal memory) and then wipe -you will be left without anything to flash! Please, please, please put the ROM on your external sd card

If that all looks too confusing then I would suggest you learn your way around recovery before doing anything

If you are a total noob then I would suggest you read this thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=32664054

IF you are upgrading from an earlier version of the ROM then it is sufficient to simply wipe Cache and Dalvik cache in recovery. Of course you will already know this because you have done it before. But sometimes in the heat of the moment we all forget

3. Flash the ROM
This ROM is flashed from recovery.
I would highly recommend that you use one of the following recoveries.

a. Philz recovery
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2002953

b. TWRP.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1943592

Use Philz recovery if you intend to flash themes to the ROM or need to access your sd card from recovery. I would recommend it to noobs as the layout is similar to CWM and having access to your sd card from your computer may come in handy if you get into problems.

TWRP has some advantages over Philz and the user interface is a thing of beauty but you cannot, as yet, mount the sd from recovery.

4. In recovery select install zip from external sd card. Find the ROM Zip. Flash it.

5. If you have got everything right so far you will be presented with the aroma installer.

This is a simple interface that lets you make a number of choices about set up by ticking boxes for what you want.
If it's your first time flashing the ROM don't tick anything. Have a look, become familiar with whats there, but leave everything at default the first time around. You can always go back later and reflash the ROM adding anything you want. Don't worry, you won't lose any of your setup by doing this, as second time around you will only be wiping Cache and Dalvik.

If you have flashed before I would urge you to ignore all the new goodies Sotmax may have provided. Flash it first with your existing setup. make sure everything is working as you would expect. Only once you are satisfied then go back to recovery and reflash adding the goodies you want
That way if issues appear you will have a starting point for both identifying the cause and resolving them.

6. Once the phone has booted don't do anything. Don't even unlock. Have patience. Go and make a cup of coffee. Things are going on in the background. Don't ask me what they are, I'm not knowledgeable enough for that but I'm pretty sure that things like the Dalvik cache are being rebuilt. After 10 minutes power off using the power button. Reboot and you should be good to go.

7. Flash the latest version of Yank's kernel. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1949904
read his OP
He has spent a lot of time explaining all the settings. Read! and anything you don't understand just leave at default until you do. He has a number of presets you can use if you are not confident. Do not use Yanks own settings usless you are using Swap.
At the end of the kernel setup make sure that you have selected for the kernel to take care of init.d - don't leave it for the rom to take care of

8.To change any of the ROM or Kernel settings you can simply reflash, remember to wipe Cache and Dalvik
In Yank's kernel installer you can choose to flash configuration only at the end of the installation process in aroma.
To change sound engine settings on the fly install the Boefla application

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flasound&hl=en

To change other other kernel settings use, setcpu, system tuner, jrummey's rom toolbox or similar.

9. Problem solving.

Many problem's can be resolved by a simple trip to recovery, wiping the cache and dalvik cache and rebooting.

FC's can often be fixed by fixing permissions in recovery.

Problem apps can sometimes be helped by clearing their cache and data in settings/applications.

Similarily sometimes uninstalling and re installing an app can rectify problems.

The applications Sotmax has provided as extra's can be reinstalled by navigating to data/app folder and tapping on its icon. This sometimes helps if they are playing up.

If you are installing HD Voice you must do a full wipe for it to work. Your network also needs to support it. You only need to do this once as in future ROM installations you will only need to wipe Cache and Dalvik (-:

Dialer and contacts will work perfectly if you keep them in memory by using the home button as opposed to the back button to close them.

Sometimes reinstalling the ROM or the Kernel will solve issues. Please try this if you have tried all the above without success.

If you have tried all of the above feel free to direct questions to some of the other users of this ROM. We are all friendly. You will soon work out who is most likely to help with a particular problem.

Sometimes the only awnser is a full wipe and a fresh start

Unexpected battery drain? All 4 cores firing on max. Check that media scanner is not causing a wakelock. If it is a. Get rid of any nandroid not on .tar format. If that does not work b. Reformat external sd. and if that does not work c. fresh start as above.

There is always a mad rush to download the ROM with new releases. Be patient many of us will provide Mirrors. You will also avoid any early problems.
