This thread should be up to date with everything we currently have available. If there is anything that you don't see here, and think it should be, send me a PM and I'll get it added!

Your One-Stop-Shop for all things Hercules!


First, a few disclaimers! READ THESE FIRST!
~Anything you do to your phone is your own fault! Neither myself, nor the developers whose modifications are listed below are fiscally, morally, emotionally, or any other '-ly' responsible for what happens to you, your phone, or your mother!

~Some of these guides will be using a program called ODIN or Heimdall. These are incredibly powerful programs and can save you from what would/should be a brick. THEY CAN ALSO VERY EASILY BRICK YOUR PHONE BEYOND ANY RECOVERABLE STATE! Use at your own caution! I recommend reading extensively and asking questions BEFORE using them!

~There are probably more disclaimers I should add so....


OK! We've got all the un-fun stuff out of the way, so lets get started!



~~~~~~~~~~~~


A note for Devs: If I haven't noticed your ROM, kernel, theme, or mod and you'd like it added to this list feel free to PM me and I'll get it up as soon as I can. Also, if I HAVE listed your work and you would like me to modify or even remove the listing, just let me know!

Kernels!

A note about custom kernels: Due to physical differences in each device, some kernels will run great on some devices and will not run very well on others. Do NOT bash a developer because you couldn't get [insert kernel feature] to work on your device! Its a physical limitation of your device! Different kernels will run differently so try them all but always, always, ALWAYS backup before flashing anything!

ROMS!


To start with here, lets talk about a bit of lingo that will come up and new-comers will have questions about!

Quote:

Think of it like the program files folder on your computer- you know how when you access it for the 1st time you get that "you should not modify these files" message? Rooting grants you access to the equivalents of those files in Android.

Deodexed: Every APK has an accompanying .odex file that is a part of each app. They're mainly used to save space & speed up boot time by sort of preloading stuff. Deodexing merges the .odex files back into the APKs & makes it easier to replace files, install themes, and whatnot.

Zip-aligned: Zipalign is an archive alignment tool that optimizes the way APKs are packed. Zipaligning allows the system to interact with apps a lot more efficiently, thus speeding up the system.

Su: The abbreviation for the superuser app that allows you to grant root permissions to apps that require it, and manage permissions for those apps.

Busybox: Provides additional commands & Linux utilities.
Now for the roms!

If a ROM is no longer used/updated or is no longer hosted on this website, it will be removed from this guide. It's nothing against anyone but this thread is on XDA for XDA.

Is anyone else having issues with a "partial" root? I can view files in the various folders, but lack the ability to delete. I have researched the threads and tried the fix permissions method, reflashing the recovery file, and installing SU to no avail.
