Have you ever heard about Paranoid Android?







Well, I found it VERY interesting : it is cool and attractive and COOL!

As I found, Paranoid Android is based on CM9. And Galaxy Ace has a port of Paranoid Android working. So I think it is possible to port this for our Legend, isn't it?

I'm trying the port ( for now just for me. I'll ask permissions and give credits before releasing anything... If I'll ever release anything... ) . I found a "guide" ( it is not so clear, or at least, not so for me ) here, and I yet can't understand where I have to change the framework...

If anyone can help me, I would be very glad. Thanks.

good luck
paranoid Android is one of my favorite roms of all time
tablet mode is really great, especially if you have a nice sized screen
(sorry I'm no help )

I've seen this ROM in my adventures into other forums. The only thing I worry about is the screen size of our dear Legend. If you need help though, I'll be more than happy to lend a hand.

Still thanks for your encouragement If you have the ROM on Galaxy Nexus, you could compare it after finished.

Screen size shoudn't be a problem. galaxy Ace isn't bigger and has it on. We could just not use tablet mode in everything but only in some apps.

Actually, I really need help I'm new in Android development and I don't think that I can do this just on myself. I posted here for help I'm trying to understand what we have to do, if you can read the Topic and understand what we have to do, it would really help I'm also trying, but I discovered right now that my time is little in next few days, and I'm not sure to have understood rightly what we have to do

I found something like a "Paranoid Builder" here, but I don't know how to use it...

Still, we need zeubea's approvation to use his ROM as base.

I'm happy to help then I'm looking through the stuff you've linked now. I think I have a very basic understanding of how that Paranoid Builder would work, but not enough to try it. For now though, I'm just going to try out this porting guide and report back with results. Also, do you think you/we should open a thread in the Development section for this? :P

Really thanks for your help! It is more "We" than "Me" I've tried that guide right now, but I can't recompile the framework-res.apk. I'll try to solve the problem.

For the Post in dev section, Moderators always closes "Coming Soon" threads, so I think that we shouldn't until we've got hands on something.

We could even found a Team, it sounds more professional

You can use the new version apk tool and recompile framework-res.apk

I think the one I'm using is the lastest version of apktool. I downloaded it his morning.

Ah, WildfireS has an Alpha0 of this ROM. So it looks even more possible for Legend!

Have you managed to get it recompiled yet? I'm not even sure there are moderators for our forum anymore :P

Are you using this apktool? Yay, well hopefully with some hard work we'll be able to get this ROM going for our phone. Is there anything you'd like me to do?

Not yet, I've been away from my PC all morning and afternoon. I'll try not comparing/syncing files with ViceVersa, because the problem looks to be some bad path. I'll tell you.

Yea, I haven't seen a MOD for a while. I think we should open a thread just when we have something made, even not-bootable, but something.

Yay, right that. As said before, I'm looking for any problem in ViceVersa, I don't think apktool has any problem.

Well, I'd like you to magically create this ROM But it obviously isn't so easy.
Still, this isn't just my project, if you want to help, you are part of this, and you don't have to report to me If this PORT will succeed, it won't be MY rom, it will be OUR rom : mine, yours and of everyone that wants to help
