Default [ROM] Valhalla Black FB Edition (Build 4, May 29)



RaverX3X's
Valhalla Black

FB Edition

PURPOSE
This is the version of RaverX3X's Valhalla Black Edition that I use and customized to my liking, which I'm sharing with you.

NOTES
  • This ROM is provided as is
  • I am not going to change the theme for you
  • I am not going to diagnose your random reboots
  • Don't come complaining when you flashed init.d tweaks that make your phone unstable
  • Don't come complaining when you use undervolt/overclock settings that make your phone unstable
  • I will only change things around in the rom if it's reasonable
  • No screenshots for you. This is exactly the same theme as Valhalla Black
  • I decided to use git to track my changes so you know exactly what got changed and when
  • I included a compress.sh script to create your own zip file in *nix or cygwin after you make changes. It even does and adb push for you for easy flash testing

FEATURES
  • AROMA installer
  • Uses a known good modem (KG4 modem, no long sms/gps bugs)
  • antonx's/bhundven's Basic with a Twist SGS4G KJ6 kernel
  • MIUI File Explorer
  • FB's bootanimation.zip
  • Latest version of Google Play
  • Heavily debloated
  • Apps installed by default
  • -- Titanium Backup
  • -- GO Launcher EX
  • -- SwiftKey (Keyboard)
  • -- BLN Control Free (Allows you to enable BLN support)
  • -- Tape-a-Talk Voice Recorder (Allows you to record wav files at much higher quality)
  • -- QuickPic (Gallery Replacement)
  • -- Go SMS Pro (Text Messaging)
  • -- MX Player (Video Player)
  • -- Android Terminal Emulator
  • -- Boat Browser (Web Browser)
  • -- Voodoo Sound
  • CLI Programs! (For all you people who like working in the shell)
  • -- 7zip (all the archive types that 7zip supports: rar, bzip2, zip, tar, gzip, iso, udf, etc)
  • -- curl (busybox's wget doesn't work. Curl does.)
  • -- /etc/profile support (you have to run ash -l to load all the aliases included)
  • Custom /etc/profile file for aliases
  • -- alias l='ls -lh --color=auto' (lists directory contents in long format and with human-readable filesizes)
  • -- alias zip9='7z -mx9 -tzip a' (creates a zip file with maximum compression)
  • -- alias zip='7z -tzip a' (creates a zip file with default compression)
  • Custom init.d scripts (runs on boot)
  • -- zipalign once a week (so your phone's boot will only be slowed down once a week )
  • -- permissions
  • Using SuperSU instead of Superuser (for a better interface and usability)
  • Custom /etc/hosts file for ad blocking out of the box

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Download the ROM zip file to your SD card
  2. Reboot to CWM
  3. Flash the ROM using CWM (no need to set mounts or wipe anything!)
  4. Reboot to the ROM
  5. On the homescreen, press the Menu Button > Themes, scroll to the right and select Ice Cream Sandwich
  6. Enjoy the rom
  7. Thank RaverX3X for his work

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours
