[ROM] 2.3.6 Atrix 2 - Lunar Eclipse b2 - 8/8
Lunar Eclipse - BETA 2
So what have we got here? Basically, this is a 2.3.6-based ROM with an ICS-inspired theme and some pretty cool features. Sounds good? Good.
Please note that this ROM is in BETA. This means that I am still working on features, themeing, and there might be minor bugs.
-ICS-inspired "Eclipse" theme, most/all significant system apps are themed
-Carrier label removed, statusbar clock centered
-1% battery mod and icon
-Modified power menu: reboot, reboot cwm, screenshot (see screenshots)
-Build.prop edits... smoother scrolling, more time in between checking for wifi networks, optimized dalvik vm heapsize, all that good stuff
-Init.d support and scripts! Sql database optimizer, apk zipaligner, and a lot more run at boot (but don't affect boot time)
-Faster read/write speeds on the sdcard
-Misc sysctl tweaks
-Disabled the blur/darken effect when opening the power menu and certain popups to increase smoothness
-Unlock your phone with a swipe or by just pressing the menu softkey!
-"Volume Wake" addon to wakeup your phone using the volume keys (but does not change any previous functions of the volume buttons)
-Operator selection, network selection, etc unlocked
-V6 Supercharger (update 9 RC10) - 1000 HP - fully implemented
-ICS keyboard and camera
- clear up space in your list of widgets
-Notification toggles - scrollable!
-Battery Bar - a thin bar that runs across the top of you statusbar that represents the current battery level. It is configurable.
-Ad blocking via hosts file
-MegaBass volume mod... clearer sound with a nice bass punch, but not as hip-hop as Beats
-ICS transitions (fully implemented)
-ICS "fugu tweaks" - new system_server and app_process that results in overall smoothness and smoother scrolling
-Scrolling cache disabled - even smoother scrolling!
-Very nice "Roboto Light" font. A branch of the Roboto font that seems a bit more suited to mobile devices
-Overclocked/underclocked and overvolted/undervolted different cpu slots to result in potentially better batter life and a smoother experience (top slot overclocked to 1100 MHz). GPU also overclocked.
-Underclocks the CPU/GPU when your phone is locked/sleeping for better battery life, then overclocks when it wakes up
-Sony Bravia Mod - crisper, clearer display
-Some custom ringtones/notifications
-Entitlement check disabled (free wifi+USB tethering)
-Root permissions in adb
-Google Talk, Google Voice, and CM7 DSP Manager included as uninstallable apps
-All apps up-to-date (as of 8/8)
-More stuff I can't think of right now!
HOW TO INSTALL:
NOTE- Do not flash this from ICS! Only flash this if you are on GB.
-Download zip (see bottom of post) and place it on your sd card
-Boot into CWM
-Wipe data/factory reset. This is not necessary but is HIGHLY recommended (even if you're just updating)
-Flash the zip and any incremental updates
-Reboot and wait for a little while
-Insert your google login info or skip
-Choose "Holo Launcher" and set it as default
---> BETA 2 UPDATE 1 <---
(flash this after flashing b2)
---> BETA 2 <---
---> BETA 1 (7/21) <--- md5 eda465b6a45e40a0846480e7656f687b - some people have had problems with this link. Be sure to download onto your computer, and if the filesize is still low try a different browser. This should be fixed with b2
-If you wipe data after flashing, the statusbar will not show up until after you select Holo Launcher as the home launcher. This never reoccurs after the inital setup
-BatteryBar is a little bit glitchy. You might need to just go to the batterybar settings app to enable it at first, then rotate the screen or lock/unlock to get it to show up. Once you set it up it seems to work well even through reboots.
-If you manage to get maybe 7 or 8 different notifications, the notification icons will overlap with the centered clock
-Contacts FC if you press the menu button while viewing a contact. You can still long-press the contact's name to edit it
-This is not a bug but rather a limitation with the V6 SuperCharger. If you wipe /data AFTER flashing the ROM, you must flash the ROM again in order to reactive most of the V6 SuperCharger settings.
-Ad-blocking is enabled via the HOSTS file. This feature can be convenient, but many developers struggle to get find money but release their apps as free with ads because they're just awesome people. If you want to support those devs then you can find apps on the app store that will return your hosts file back to stock. I will upload a flashable zip that can do the same thing... sometime.
-Entitlement check is disabled, but that doesn't mean that AT&T/your carrier can't detect that you are tethering from your phone. I am not responsible for any extra charges you get for bypassing the entitlement check.
