Angry [ROM] BakaG2X 2011-11-20 (FINAL RELEASE (maybe not)) [2.3.3]

BakaG2X 2011-11-20 (Final 2.3.3 Version - OR IS IT?)
---------
NOTE:
--

Here is a pretty clean and basic ROM based on the LG 2.3.3 OTA.
It is designed for those who want a good clean base to do their OWN addons to, while removing more bloat than was added.

This is the FINAL release of BakaG2X on 2.3.3. I will also release a 2.3.4 ROM, but it will be offered separately.

WiFi Calling is included as T-Mobile's signal is horrible. Thank you.

UPDATE NOTES:
This version cleans up a few things in the theme primarily, and sets a couple of tweaks that weren't done before. Not a big change over the previous version. The only build available comes with Wifi Calling. If you don't WANT wifi calling, you can simply remove Kineto.apk from the /system/app folder, and I recommend doing so if you don't use it.

The biggest theme change can be seen on the notification pulldown here, and I've updated that screenshot.

As before, bloat is available in the various bloat packs. If you have downloaded these before, you don't need to download them again, there have been no changes to those packs.

---------
CORE BUILD FEATURES:
  • 11/20 - ICS Animations (capez) - tweaked animation speeds
  • 11/20 - Remove Battery Full & Battery Low Warnings but I LEFT the last Shutdown Warning..
  • 11/20 - init.rc support
  • 11/20 - Increased SD Read Ahead Cache to 3072
  • 11/20 - zipalign new apk's on bootup
  • 11/20 - new quick panel icons from O2X (smaller / textless)
  • 11/20 - shell utils: bash/nano/sysrw/sysro (if you don't know don't ask)
  • 11/20 - a few theme tweaks (notification ticker, carrier text, etc)
  • 11/17 - Three Flashable "Bloat" packs. You probably want at least one. SEE BELOW.
  • 11/17 - Google Talk with Video
  • 11/17 - Google Music (replaces stock Music.apk)
  • 11/17 - Toggle 2G Settings & Widget (TheMasterBaron)
  • 11/17 - Updated Google Apps as of 11-17.
  • 11/17 - busybox & su binaries updated.
  • Reboot/Recovery Menu (untermensch / sicopat)
  • Quick Panel Settings (dreamsforgotten)
  • Accurate Battery Mod
  • Removed LG Update process (was running all the time using ~10-20mb)
  • Updated Google Apps as of 11/15
  • CM7 Apps: Torch, E-Mail, Keyboard, Calculator, Sound Recorder
  • GPS Tweaks for USA. SuplRootCert added.
  • Misc build.prop edits (for gps/modversion/adb persist notify off)
  • Adblock Host file.
  • Theme bits (startup/shutdown/Roboto font/CRT Off/Lockscreen, etc)
  • Of course it is fully zipaligned.

Note: All Bloat Packs install to user applications, so you can uninstall bits you don't want.
- This of course means you'd need to reflash Bloat packs if you happen to wipe.

BLOAT PACK 1: Recommended Bloat
  • Titanium Backup Free (it will detect if you have Pro key saved on SD)
  • MIUI Music
  • CM7 File Manager
  • Battery Calibration Tool
  • Wallpapers / Ringtones installed to SD for easy removal.


BLOAT PACK 2: Bloat T-Mobile Thinks You Want
  • AppPack, Books, T-Mobile-TV, Polaris Office, My Account,
  • Magic Smoke LWP, Visualizations LWP, Telenav, Zinio
  • Tegra Zone, NFS Shift, Nova.


Bloat Pack 3: Something I want and you probably don't.
  • Japanese Samsung iWnnIME Keyboard



KNOWN ISSUES - BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN NO SURPRISES
- Bluetooth may crash upon pairing. This is fixed in my 2.3.4 Rom, Tsugi.
- Kernels: I have tried both Faux123 and DragonG2X. They boot & Run, but have their own known issues. Cannot support them.
- Lockscreen lag. This is an issue with any LG based ROM. Some report it doesn't happen if you use certain 3rd party launchers.
- Toggle2G will ask for root permissions on bootup, and be denied automatically. You'll see a popup about that that goes away on its own. If you want to use the app, just open it manually and it will bring up the normal SuperUser prompt where you can approve superuser permissions.
- Stock Camera. If you want LG-Cam, you know how to get it.
- On the FIRST BOOT, the Media process will sometimes FC. It does not do this AFTER the first boot, and it doesn't always do it.

DOWNLOAD

CORE DOWNLOAD (REQUIRED): http://www.multiupload.com/6OWAQ1AWHK

BLOAT PACK 1 RECOMMENDED: http://www.multiupload.com/9LU6MFZYB8

BLOAT PACK 2 T-MOBILE BLOAT: http://www.multiupload.com/DKWTOBQ8TH

BLOAT PACK 3 JAPANESE IME: http://www.multiupload.com/M586LXB6VF

TESTING ICS ANIMATIONS: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=78 - get the framework-res.apk and push it to /system/framework. Not flashable.

OVERCLOCK KERNEL: Faux123's 1.3 Kernel with FIXED BOOTUP TIME (Now boots up normally instead of rebuilding dalvik every time)

INSTRUCTIONS:
Flash the CORE DOWNLOAD first. Then flash any Bloat Packs you want. The Bloat Packs are not complete Roms. You must flash the CORE DOWNLOAD first, then select and flash any Bloat packs while you are still in CWM, or you can flash them later. Bloat packs don't wipe.

Looks legit, seems like you've got all the bases covered.

I'd like to try it this weekend, give you some feedback.

And thanks for the little tidbits of info, didn't know Wifi Calling sucked up battery even when not in use.

It was horrible on my Vibrant. I think it has improved on the G2X, but still not perfect. It receives notifications on all signal changes, even if you don't have it set up to use. I'm not sure if it does that if you're not on T-Mobile... best to remove the APK if you're not using it.

Looks very nice. I love the transparent notification pulldown and those quick panel icons look sick!

I have to not take credit for the actual pulldown graphics, I just ported them using dreamsforgotten's guide!

Did you check the md5 hash? It appears at least a couple others have successfully downloaded it, but I'll double check it.

When you say won't install - what happens?

In CWM it says "Installation Aborted" right after I try to start the install. I redownloaded a third time from another site using Firefox instead of Chrome and it worked. I like what I see so far! Thanks.
