This is an ongoing developer project to make way for a modification that will entirely transform your device, but retain the aesthetics and the experience of your phone. I know you've seen tablet mode roms before, they change two lines in your build.prop file which you could easily edit yourself in seconds and maybe throw a keyboard in there to make it work better. It's a start, but this ain't enough. This thing has potential, but it is wasted the moment you try to stuff a full blown tablet into your poor phone. Yet we all know our high res phones can very well handle more than silly 1-column layouts. So the magic must be in between somewhere, a place that Google must have overlooked and left blank. Yes, this rom strives to drop your device into tablet mode, but it won't stop there, it will reshape and redefine ICS to make it all a usefull addition and not just a cute novelty. we're calling it: Hybrid Mode, best of both worlds.

  • DON'T flash FROM ANY SAMSUNG ICS OR ROMS BASED ON SAMSUNG KERNELS (my CM9, AOSP, etc)
    Flash any stock GB rom with odin / or any GB kernel [instructions] root device [instructions] and reboot into recovery once again before flashing this
  • Install Rom: http://d-h.st/3cK
  • Install HYBRID Gapps: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip
  • Wipe caches, factory reset is a must if you're coming from another rom than CM9
  • If your statusbar is gone after the first reboot: longpress Powerbutton > Toggle Statusbar
  • Reboot and edit your Apps Dpi under Settings/Paranoid Settings/P.A.D. Hold the powerbutton to see the new fullscreen-togglebutton


  • FAQ & HELP - Read before asking!
  • Go to Settings, System, Font size, set it to NORMAL
  • Check "Auto Hide" in Settings, System, Statusbar, to finally get Fullscreen (or Hold power button, and press "Toggle StatusBar")
  • Launcher Settings: margins: SMALL (If youre using Apex / Nova), show permanent searchbar: YES, resize all widgets: YES, Wallpaper scrolling: OFF

v1.6a

Stable final ICS PA release.

v05

Based on latest CM9 nightly
Improvements on frameworks, fixed for once and finally all DPI related crashes
SystemUI mode can be configured now
Cleanup and speedup of hybrid code via native libs (I'd say 25%)
A lot more of changes, you can check them here: https://github.com/ParanoidAndroid

v04
Gps fix, i hope it works fine (i just catched 14 sats)
Long-pressing menu button shows recent app lists as before
Some adjustments
Improvements on OTA app, scheduled checkups
Improvements on Backup app, now it automatically launches on startup after you install a newer (or older) version
Hybrid speedup, less lag, considerably faster list scrolling when pad/pal is in action
Keyboard scaling, an androids first
PAD/PAL bugfixes for apps that still crop images in lower dpis
Settings revamp, speed preferences to switch between modes without having to set up anything, less clutter
Trebuchet extras: 3x4 widgets, speed dial menu button, ... and some weird rocket button which im sure will be very useful to most of you
Pad.prop revamp, new preferences that should pretty much nail it. Im sorry but this trashes your old settings again, do not attempt to restore them unless you do it in a text editor

v03

New Hybrid code, keyboard troubles should be gone, apps that crop images or display weird, that should be gone aswell
PAD/PAL work in phonemode 100%, no weird toggles and stuff like that. you get full tablet apps without caveats
Settings cleanup, most of the garbage dpi options are gone, should be more intuitive - i ask you to not bring your old pad.props though some things changed. if you know what you do take a look and edit by hand
Trashed our LatinIME repo - not needed anymore
Speed improvements, all launchers are buttersmooth now
Has all the latest CM9 additions
New PAD/PAL code allows system-scaling finally, that means you can scale the lockscreen, dialogs, toasts, etc.
Trebuchet comes with new menu options: 4x4 grid grid folders, options for backgrounds, tablet effects
New cool backup app for pad.prop, *maybe* even an OTA app, either 1.2 or 1.3
New panel options and descriptions
Hide status-bar clock doesnt hide HOLO clock in notification center
Number of notification icons definable in settings
Tons of fixes and improvements

v02

1) Included latest changes and fixes from latest CM9 nightly.
2) New feature - Per App Layout, allows you to force each app to work in your desire mode with tablet or phone layout.
3) Improved settings panel
4) Fixed keyboard/camera/etc layout bugs, basically all layout bugs can be fixed using PAD/PAL settings.
5) Home button long-press now works in tablet mode

Included all settings/options from GS2 build like these:
1) Ability to easily switch between tablet/phone mode
2) Ability to enable/disable softkeys on both phone and tablet modes
3) Lockscreen wallpaper, and vibration setting
4) Statusbar Transparency
5) Recent apps options + Sense recent apps layout mode
6) Ability to disable physical keys
7) Sound management panel

Hi !

So much great features already and it's only v0.2.
I'm a real fan of this ROM ... the best one for my taste
I just report a bug :

- Parameters app crashes when trying to change lockscreen shortcuts (my default app hybrid setting is 182dpi ?)

One suggestion for future release ?

- Should be great to add "per app full screen" or "auto hide status bar" (when opening web browser for exemple .

Keep up the great job !

imilka, Can you please add AVRCP 1.3 support in the next build? Official CM9 supports it.
