USB Tether
Is there a way to enable USB tethering (wired tethering) in this ROM? Search results makes it seem that this stopped working since Jelly Bean released, maybe?

Synergy_d2vzw_01Jan13_2347_r147_s.zip (MD5: 4813b7d459912ae16783ea45dc8283bd) http://beta.androidfilehost.com/?a=s...files&flid=660


Before I get started, I'd like to thank Zig for his amazing kernel and apk/binary/pretty much anything work, and I can't begin to thank TrevE enough for his contributions to the ROM. I work on Android with some really smart cats, but TrevE has to be from the future or something. The guy did some absolutely great work on the ROM as you'll see below and elsewhere... and he does it all blind since he doesn't even own the phone. We're lucky to have him around.

This is a full rebase to the LK3 OTA Jelly Bean build. This was fully rebuilt from the ground up (no merging of old files; these were all modded from scratch) and is probably the single build that I have spent more time on than any other in my life. We heavily modified frameworks and many other system files SO A FULL WIPE IS REQUIRED. Even if you think you got away with a dirty flash, stuff behind the scenes that you can't see is broken. So make your nandroids, back up your apps, wipe it clean, then rebuild everything from scratch with Titanium Backup or whatever.

As of this build (r147) Synergy now includes PDroid support. Longtime Android tweakers will know what this is. Those who don't, it's an app that allows you to selectively block permissions to individual apps. For example, I use Facebook but I don't like how it logs my GPS location whenever it wants. So using PDroid, I can block Facebook from accessing my location settings. You can block apps from any permission it has access to, even apps that try to trick the OS. PDroid takes a lot more than just an app, it requires a heavy modification of the framework in order to function properly. We also found that other PDroid ports out there were missing critical code that made PDroid think it was blocking stuff even thought it wasn't. We now have it all functioning properly and TrevE has a great writeup here that you need to go read while you're downloading the ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2077839

The framework is already good to go in Synergy. If you want to use PDroid, you can grab the app here: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=9390248398092763896

Once again, BIG THANKS to TrevE for his efforts on this. See his thread for GPL compliant source links.

  • r126 - Rebase to official JB OTA - Jelly Bean 4.1.1 I535VRBLK3. Also blocked Samsung root checkers/screenloggers. Most previous mods/tweaks left intact, rest to follow in next several commits

To those who felt I missed a previous request of yours because you didn't see it in the changelog, don't worry: I've still got more stuff I'm working on. I just had to tie the line and drop a release already, otherwise I'd just keep working on it in perpetuity and you guys would never see it

More mods and requests coming soon

Is this supposed to have the volume up to skip track mod?

Never mind... it has it, just doesn't work for Pandora... Other than that, FANTASTIC rom
Thanks for all your hard work
