Announcement from NexusPenguin: CandyKAT - Slimbased with features added - For v500 - Enjoi :-)


This is CandyKat. Built straight from SlimRoms source with commits

from a variety of different Sources/ROMS. We wanted to give the users a fun,

fully customizable ROM.We aim to add more features as this project progresses.

We have also come up with the Candy Sweetener Pack. This is an Aroma installer

that is full of delicious treats. Inspired by the CandyShop thread on XDA it has

everything from glow dots to halo mods.

Hi All,

Thank your for looking at this thread and maybe give CandyKAT a try...

Please note :

1) CandyKat does not enable root access after it is installed. This causes CandyCenter to crash at first boot. This is normal... Just enable developer's options (7 times on "build version" under "About this tablet" in "Parameters") ; go to developer's options and under "Debugging" enables root for Apps (or for Apps and ADB) => VOILA ! Problem solved

2) CandyKat is based on SlimRoms. It seems that Slim has a problem on some devices with "Plants vs. Zombies 2". This may occur here.

I have personally run this for 3 days on my own v500 for testing purposes and did not encounter a single problem with the ROM.

Enjoi

Does this rom expect the 7 light brightness base (aka 4.2.2) or the fixed low brightness base 4.4.2 firmware?

Hi Muriddin,

Can't answer that precisely as my v-500 is flashed with a v-510 4.2.2 base so it does not suffer form the 4.4.2 Base brightness bug.
But as this based on SlimROM, which is an AOSP ROM I expect the "bug" to be present...

Regards.

You answered what I wanted to know. I am sure you know this but for those who do not... The trade off here is the 4.2.2 base does not start dim but does have the seven dark spots on low brightness. The 4.4.2 base fixed the seven dark spots bug but the kernels built against the 4.2.2 base then have what is commonly called the brightness/dim boot bug.
