I ejected the cmd window when I start root, non-stop error, "failed" and that he could not enroll busybox and superuser because the system is read-only.

Adding status bar controls to .587
Hey guys,

can anyone post a DIRECT link to some howto for adding the status bar controls with ICS .587? A couple of months ago I visited this thread and I have followed instructions (having to install some system...ui... apk and install quicksettings.apk and set permissions). This was very helpful. But at the moment I see only a link to some other tutorial which partially refers to some parts of some other tutorial of some other moder which refers to another moder for some parts but does some own **** in his tutorial to do something different. At least, it looks this way.

Sorry guys, this is TOTALLY confusing. (I know I sound like an all demanding bitch, sorry. But...) Cannot someone just create ONE official tutorial for the CURRENT SEMC software version, i.e. stock 4.0...587?

Regards,
chert

Rooting your phone is not supported. You have to instal .69 firmware

Here it is http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...89&postcount=1

In brief .

1.You download the system UI apk & quick settings of your choice. I used this one (Original Thread if you are interested).

2. With your Root Explorer, copy SystemUI.apk to /system/ folder for now.
3. Change Permissions to rw-r--r-- from Root Explorer(Press and hold item, select Permissions)
4. Move the SystemUI.apk to /system/app/. Overwrite when asked.
5. Install the QuickSetting.apk as an usual app. (Copy to SD, tap on it in root explorer to install)
6. Reboot to see changes, run QuickSetting from Drawer to change options.

Basically remember,
Code:
if you are replacing any file in  /system/app/.
 first set permission as rw-r--r--  and then overwrite.


Good luck.

HI mate

Thanks for the cool tips first! After a morning of flashing I finally have my Ray in a rooted 4.0.4 environment and got rid of the bootloop. Now I'm trying to enable the auto brightness thing, but it seems not working for me. I flashed your statusbar addons and it made the phone go into bootloop. It's recovered now, but still struggling with the auto brightness. What I did:

changed the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file to 3,2,2,0 in the params line
made sure permissions are -rw-r--r--
I even sourced the file from a terminal to make sure it's executed

And nothing happens. If I go to /sys/devices/i2c/0-0040/leds/lcd-backlight/als/params I can see the params are correctly set. the "enable" file also says 1. If I cat the "value" file I can see the value drops when I put my finger on the sensor. Service menu also shows the sensor value changes. But my screen doesn't dim. The brightness led value file says 255.

What can I do to actually link the led brightness to the sensor value?

Thanks in advance

Hi.

Attach your hw_config and I'll have a look.
