SlimGen V1.6.0

Get the SlimGen Wallpaper HERE!!!
SlimGen site has been made! Visit regularly for exclusive features! http://www.sethworkz.tk/

What is SlimGen?
-SlimGen is a CyanogenMod based ROM which is focused on being the fastest and slimmest ROM for the LG Optimus One (Slim = because it's slim(not for filesize,but it's missing useless apps) / Gen = comes from cyanoGENmod,because it is based on CM7)

Why did you create SlimGen ROM?There are many other ROMs for the P500.
-The main reason I created this ROM is because I don't like bloatware at all. Also I don't like having installed such apps on my phone which I personally will never EVER use so I thought I make my own rom without having that stuff. I never thought I will release it to the public. But then my brother and even my friends liked using the rom and so I decided to release it here on XDA.

What do you expect from the community?
-Nothing at all. I made this ROM for myself,but because of the great feedback I got,I thought to release it to the public. The only thing you can do for me,is to donate any amount if you like my work. That's all.

How to install the ROM?
-Scroll down.

BugFix for updater app #1
http://www.sethworkz.noads.biz/romup...terupdate1.zip

HOW TO FLASH:

-Recommended AmonRA 3.0.6 Recovery!
-Wipe EVERYTHING! Data,Cache,dalvik,system!
-Flash the ROM then reboot.
-ENJOY!
__________________________________________________ _____________________________________

Info: the updater zip is not signed, disable check for certificate in recovery. If for some reason the ROM doesn't boot after installing this update, just reflash the rom and it will be ok.

Info:
LCD density change(or resolution change) shrinks down the whole user interface by dividing the number of pixels by 25% but still maintaining a readable text even on our devices. It's mainly a placebo to fool your eye that you have a WVGA screen devices, which obviously you don't. In my opinion, everything looks better with the resolution change. More things fit into the screen allowing you to read more, and swipe less.

(Keep in mind that all original nightly builds contain many bugs which obviously I cannot and will not fix,that is the CM7 team's job to fix those. So if you find or encounter any bugs during using the ROM,blame them,not me. Thank you)

ToDo:

-upgrade to Android version 4.0.3 [ DONE!] CHECK SLIMGEN 2.0!

Changelogs:



5/03/2012: Updater App BugFix #1

  • Rom Updater app has been updated, fixed an issue when updater didn't found any updates even if their were. This should solve the problem. If for some reason, the ROM doesn't start after flashing the update, just reflash the rom and it will work again.



4/28/2012: v1.6.0

  • SlimGen site has been made! Visit regularly for exclusive features! http://www.sethworkz.tk/
  • Future versions will feature the resolution change, I will not make roms without it because as I mentioned above, I make this for myself. I like the res change much cuz I can see more of the screen. If you guys don't like it, you can change it in the build.prop to the original one.
Open build.prop in Root Explorer and scroll to the bottom. You will find a line like this:
ro.sf.lcd_density=120
Change it to 160 and save it, then reboot and you will have the original resolution if you like that one more.
ro.sf.lcd_density=160

  • [BETA] NEW ROM Updater app is included! No need to download from XDA then copy it to your sd card and then flash! NO! Just open the updater app, check for updates, and if there is an update, it automatically downloads it for you and reboots in recovery! I had to implement this because many people are kinda lazy (like I am) and this will ease their rom updating process more.
Pictures of the rom updater app:

http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/7690/shot000029.png

  • New Adreno Graphics Drivers implemented! [4/27/2012] (With these drivers, GTA3 can be played at a constant 20-25fps!!!)
  • Kernel Governor tweaks and fixes
  • Root Explorer is now the default file explorer! (by request)
  • Google Play Compatibility issue fixed!
  • Some other stuff I can't remember now...

3/16/2012: v1.5.2

  • Two new ROM versions released! Normal rom and a new rom featuring the LCD Density/Resolution change! See the difference here:
    Settings: WITH RES CHANGE / WITHOUT RES CHANGE
    Music player: WITH RES CHANGE / WITHOUT RES CHANGE

    LCD density change(or resolution change) shrinks down the whole user interface by dividing the number of pixels by 25% but still maintaining a readable text even on our devices. It's mainly a placebo to fool your eye that you have a WVGA screen devices, which obviously you don't. In my opinion, everything looks better with the resolution change. More things fit into the screen allowing you to read more, and swipe less.
  • Kernel changed from stock Cyanogen to ta-gb1.2 for stability and GREAT battery life!
  • Default theme is IceCreamSandwich theme
  • Added new lib files for better/faster/smoother 3D graphical experience!


2/16/2012: v1.5.1 #30

  • Fixed a bug where the Wi-Fi gave an error and couldn't connect
  • Fixed a case when data enabled was loosing signal too frequently,unable to download anything
  • Font reverted to stock font


2/15/2012: v1.5 #30 (Bunch of changes)

  • Email.apk readded to the rom by request although it was not necesarry for syncing calendar. Anyway if you don't email.apk just uninstall.
  • Readded Cyanbread theme by request
  • Fixed random reboots. Now it should work well. If it still has problems, report here, although I am not responsible for them. Nightly builds are buggy, not my job to fix them.
  • Font changed from Ubuntu to Cantarell. For some users it was hard to read the slim letters of Ubuntu font.
  • Added a bunch of ringtones and notification sounds by request.
  • Removed my own ICS lockscreen because nightly already has included the holo lockscreen which is the same
  • Other things that I don't remember now but will update the list later.
Nightly updates:
  1. FM fixed to respect upper and lower freq limits
  2. Don't animate rotations when screen is off
  3. Change proximity behaviour for devices w/ fixed keyboard
  4. Now cyanbread is the default theme
  5. Unfreeze display even if screen is off
  6. Fix images being scaled incorrectly.
  7. Improve scrolling cache (ported from ICS)
  8. Add safety net for notification swipe handling.
  9. Furtherly fix up notification swipe handling.
  10. Additional landscape layout for sim pin unlock
  11. Add notification type constants.
  12. libaudio-msm7x30: initial E739 audio support



2/2/2012: v1.4 #20
  • Clockopia font replaced by stock ICS font. Check it out HERE
  • Re-added DSPManager by request
  • Added Revamped Ring lockscreen
  • Added Holo Ring lockscreen
  • Added Blade Ring lockscreen
  • Added option to disable scrolling cache
  • Added support for BCM20xx chipsets, to improve FM radio seek algorithm
  • Other things which I can't remember now but will update it later

2/1/2012: v1.3 #18
  • Removed adfad666 based roms due to random bootloops. They were highly unstable and it caused the phone to crash. Nightlies are more reliable so future releases will include ONLY nightly roms.

  • Version 1.3 includes bug fixes aswell as added Google Music app by request
  • Kernel has been changed from franco's kernel to default cyanogenmod kernel. You can still flash your own kernel if you want

  • Support for mik'os cm7 based SlimGen has ended,no more updates

  • Other stuff that I am too lazy to remember

I know there exists that rom,but as I mentioned before,I created this ROM for myself,so I wanted my OWN apps and OWN features.
For example I don't know any rom which has the feature of USB DUO which mounts your sd card and in the same time you can use USB debugging aswell.
I understand that this isn't the slimmest rom ever,but for me,it's perfect,only my friends and brother convinced me to share it to XDA
