FAQ updated Dec 12, 2013 & JB Changelog
Jelly Bean changelog:
I'm reading the FAQ, am i good?
- You sir are the best.
There's anything missing? Gapps?
- Everything from stock is included, root, gapps, Google dialer, photosphere, no need to flash anything else.
- Please avoid to flash third party Gapps.
- GEL is not included.
Does Cataclysm boots with ART enabled?
- Since Nov 21 release Cataclysm is fully compatible with ART.
Rebooting with ART resets it to Dalvik again
- This happens if you have exposed framework installed.
Is Cataclysm heavily themed?
- No, Cataclysm is 100% stock themed.
How should i install Cataclysm?
- Do a Wipe/Factory reset and then flash. Strongly suggested to update to latest recovery.
- Should be safe to dirty flash new releases over the old ones unless android version bump.
- Cataclysm won't update radio or bootloader for you and this thread is not the right place to discuss about it.
Why there are multiple packages on home and how should i flash them?
- Flash Cataclysm ---> Flash Nightly Update package (if you want to have the 0day release) ---> Reboot.
- If you already have Cataclysm installed (latest full release), just flash the Nightly Cumulative Update (no wipe needed).
- Remember that latest cumulative update contains every single update from latest full release till that day.
Why can't add lockscreen widgets?
- They're disabled by default on Android 4.4. You can enable them in Security -->enable widget.
Wi-Fi Tethering isn't working!
- In Android 4.2+ tethered traffic is flagged so if your plan doesn't allow it, wifi tethering will likely won't work.
- You can use some third party apps.
I've enabled Immersive mode and now my bars are missing!
- Just swipe from top or bottom for bars.
My mobile signal/radio isn't working anymore!
- There's a bug with TWRP that remove/corrupt your baseband during flash. Please refer to the twrp team for a fix.
Why Smart Radio keeps shutting down itself?
- To avoid loops, using the 2G3G toggle will deactivate Smart Radio.
I get error when flashing Cataclysm
- First make sure to compare the md5 against the one on the file hosting site.
- If it matches consider some users are reporting issues with TWRP. Refer to the twrp team for a fix.
- Don't wipe system. If you did, reboot again to recovery before flashing.
Can't adb remount / init.d scripts aren't executed
- This features needs a custom kernel, please refer to your best kernel dev.
Can't select AM/PM clock style
- You can't select it if you're using the 24Hour clock format.
Show data activity on statusbar isn't working
- For data activity i mean the little triangles over Wifi or Mobile signal.
- They were removed, i've reintroduced them back as optional.
Vibration on call pickup/hangup doesn't work
- It works for remote pickup/hangup, you already should know when picking or hanging up a call yourself.
Hot reboot toggle doesn't work
- For security reasons it works only on longpress.
I have radio/signal/gps/wakelocks/drain issues
- Those issues aren't and won't ever be related to Cataclysm.
Volume wake sometimes isn't working
- When playing music you need to press both volUP and volDOWN to wake the phone.
- This will let you to skip tracks without waking the phone while keeping the ability to do so.
Smart Radio disconnect me on switch, it also takes seconds to reconnect
- It's normal to get disconnected when you switch radio
- Also switch is handled by the radio itself, can't make it better nor faster.
Fast Charge toggle doesn't work
- Fast Charge toggle needs a compatible custom kernel.
- Also you can't toggle it while already connected.
GPS toggle isn't working
- There's a bug on Android where if you disable GPS while active it stays powered even if it shows as off, thus draining your battery.
- So i've put a security check to prevent disable it when powered on.
Why the option to longpress home to open app drawer is grayed out?
- Unfortunately this feature depends on launchers, so actually is compatible only with Nova, Holo, Holo HD and Aphex launcher.
Why wifi is always enabled on battery stats even if i turn it off?
- Google by default use wifi for some location services even when it's "off".
- Go to Wifi --> Advanced Settings --> Wifi scan always available to disable it.
I want PIE!
- Here is an alternative PIE.
I want HALO!
- Here is an alternative HALO.
I want RIBBON!
- Here is an alternative RIBBON.
May i suggest/request something?
- Suggestions are welcome, but can't promise anything.
Why didn't you answer to my post/pm?
- I try doing my best, but i don't have much time and can miss something.
Pls buddy I want ur mods from the catacalysm, can I have ur codes of some of ur mods that u put in the catacalysm ROM?
- Unfortunately Cataclysm sources aren't publicly available.
