Slim_ICS_2.8_Mirror

Use this Vending.apk if the inbuilt one doesn't allow paid apps.


Slim ICS v2.7 - Stable
IMPORTANT NOTE: :
Starting with 2.7 I am forming a common base for galaxy variants, so every user needs to flash the Slim_ICS_Base_2.7 and their device essentials, so a I9000 user has to flash the Slim_ICS_2.7_I9000_Essentials as well, if you don't your system won't boot. I am doing this so i can make it easier on my side and allow users of vibrant and captivate to become Slim.
  • Smaller but common base for galaxy S variant phones
  • Modded Market where paid apps work ( if it doesn't, try this, manually push it in system/app, set permissions, reboot)
  • Modem provided in Essentials - it will leave your modem alone if there is one already.
  • Introducing ASS ( Advanced Slim Settings) - thanks to Roman and AOKP team
    • Modify Notification Widgets
    • Adjust CPU frequency
    • Change battery style
    • Add/Remove Toggles
    • Adjust the toggle style ( Text, icon or alternate toggles)
    • Change LCD density
    • Allow 180 degree rotation
    • Custom Carrier Label
    • Back button to kill apps
    • Lockscreen options, octo doesn't but quad and two does
  • Updated TeamHacksung Kernel
  • Latest AOSP tree sync

Slim_ICS_Base_2.7

Slim_ICS_2.7_I9000_Essentials

Slim_ICS_2.7_Captivate_Essentials

Slim_ICS_2.7_Vibrant_Essentials - Wifi Toggle Fix inbuilt, no need to flash separately

Market Workaround at 182 DPI:

  • Use this Vending.apk if the inbuilt one doesn't allow paid apps.

    or
  • Change to 240 dpi, reboot, clear market cache, and verify that all apps are seen ( if you can't see any at 182 dpi), then change it to 182 dpi and don't clear cache. All apps will show up until you clear cache next time.
    or
  • Buy LCD Density Modder Pro. Easily allows to change DPI and downloads a modded multi dpi marketplace.


ICS Rom Benchmarks for Nexus S:

Memory Issue related to Apps, See here for a possible fix

Init.d Scripts
If you use Semaphore kernel grab "Busybox installer" from Market. Run it and the Semaphore apk. will work

Known Issue:
  • For few users wifi toggles on and off. See below for possible fixes
    • Try this post - This Works
    • Try this post by fane1
  • For any weird SMS issues, look here for a fix.

ahhh... the Kraken has been released!

I found that the installation of this ROM is one of the easiest I've seen around since CM7.

Just wanted to add a few installation pointers:

[Method_1] Comming from CM7 or another CM9? (most likely has CWM installed already)
  • Copy the ROM file and Essentials to the internal SD
  • Reboot into CWM
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Go to Install zip file, select zip file and install FIRST the Base ROM and then WITHOUT REBOOTING install the Essentials .zip too
[Method_2] If [Method_1] causes a bootloop, do the following (see image below with the dead Androski)
The bootloop might be SO FAST that you won't even have a chance to read the message. The pictures bellow were taken by a video camera and placed in slow motion.
  • Remove the battery and place it back again to stop the loop (NOTE: you can also stop the loop without removing the battery by pressing all 3 buttons for more than 6 seconds)
  • Press the appropriate combo to enter RECOVERY MODE <----
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Go to Install zip file, select zip file/s and install again
[Method_3] Issues? The above procedure didn't work?
  • Flash to your known good stock ROM (w/e STOCK ROM you know WORKS for you i.e.2.2 ~ 2.3.6)
  • Full Factory format with Internal SD Format
  • Copy the ROM file to the internal SD
  • Download EZOdin and the EZboot-GingerBread-1.0.tar.md5 (GBL) from here
  • Load GBL in PDA, click on bootloader update and reset time, NOTHING ELSE
  • Once odin says pass with a green bar, pull battery
  • Reboot into CWM
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Go to Install zip file, select zip file and install

I've tried to do a Wipe /cache after the factory reset but it seems redundant, as the factory reset will include that as well. In my testing wiping the /Dalvik cache didn't present any changes, but doing it wont hurt

[[Notes about the Modem]]
This rom doesn't include a modem and the updater script wont even bother looking for one, so whatever modem you were using before, it will keep it!

From my personal experience, I've found that the modem I used under my 850MHz Carrier (KC1), didn't work as well as the KG3 that I'm using now under ICS. To try a different modem you may use any CM7/ICS CWM flashable package.
Happy flashing and enjoy!
