Default Make "Disable HW Overlays" permanent

Hi. Does anyone know how to make the "Disable HW Overlays" option found on some ROMs permanently checked / persistent after reboot? I'm using JellyTime R13 on my DHD. Thanks.

I don't think that there's an option to do that. But ticking the option every boot isn't all that hard.

Sent from my Desire HD using xda app-developers app
Devices: ATT Samsung Galaxy S3 i747, ATT HTC Inspire 4g (international: Desire HD, retired)

Samsung galaxy s3: if you're having issues rebooting after flashing 4.3 roms, then go stock, wipe a few times, and reroot. Also make sure your bootloader is updated.

On the JT R15 developer thread, someone has noted that it is a known issue.

I'm not sure whether they mean it is a known issue that the HW Overlay box is unchecked after reboot, or whether the graphical issues with checking Disable HW Overlays solves is an issue.

However, people are talking about it, and that pleases me.

DONATE TO ME
Also looking for a permanent solution for my Inspire 4G, is frustrating to run the camera or play a video and have the phone restart cause I forgot to switch the setting last boot.
