Default [ROM][HYBRID][Jellybean] PARANOIDANDROID v1.991 - Non-kexec only!





This is an ongoing developer project to make way for a modification that will entirely transform your device, but retain the aesthetics and the experience of your phone. I know you've seen tablet mode roms before, they change two lines in your build.prop file which you could easily edit yourself in seconds and maybe throw a keyboard in there to make it work better. It's a start, but this ain't enough. This thing has potential, but it is wasted the moment you try to stuff a full blown tablet into your poor phone. Yet we all know our high res phones can very well handle more than silly 1-column layouts. So the magic must be in between somewhere, a place that Google must have overlooked and left blank. Yes, this rom strives to drop your device into tablet mode, but it won't stop there, it will reshape and redefine ICS to make it all a usefull addition and not just a cute novelty. we're calling it: Hybrid Mode, best of both worlds.


  • FAQ & Help - Read before asking!
  • Go to Settings, System, Font size, set it to NORMAL
  • Launcher Settings: margins: SMALL (If youre using Apex / Nova), show permanent searchbar: YES, Grid: 5x4, resize all widgets: YES, Wallpaper scrolling: OFF
  • Themes and other goodies you can find here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1646034

  • If you have an issue and you want to call our attention, here's what you do:
  • 1. Try everything you can, find solutions for yourself. Wipe caches, revert all your settings you have made, go back to your stock Kernel, factory reset if you have to or reflash the rom. Assume that the issue is on your side and try your best to isolate it.
  • 2. Search this thread and Cyanogenmods aswell (its our base) for possible reoccurences of your issue and hopefully solutions that may have come up.
  • 3. If you think the issue is important enough that we should cease our work and look into it, post your issue, BUT ...
  • ... stay friendly, do not demand anything, do not threaten
  • ... explain your issue as precise as you can, name the exact apps and conditions that cause trouble, help us to replicate the issue right away. If we can't there's no way we can fix it and your post will simply clutter the thread
  • ... collect evidence, keep in mind this is a developer thread so even if you are not one, do us the favor and research how to record logcat. logcat is the single most important help you can give us to resolve your issue.

  • 20120819v1.991
  • Maintenance update, bugfixes and patches.
  • 20120810v1.9.8alpha
  • Project butter recents in tabUI (2/2)
  • Quick access hybrid properties by longpressing a recent app
  • More refined hybrid algorithm to reveal more layout containers
  • TabletUI toggles
  • All recent cm merges (Trebuchet, googles 4.1.1 r4 with a whole bunch of fixes for memory leaks, etc)
  • 20120806v1.9.7alpha
  • New option: "large" to trick an app thinking the device has a real big screen. some need it, like amazon kindle to jump into tabUI. some even react on it, gdrive will slightly adapt its layout - makes only sense if you give it a small dpi though.
  • The algorithm to extract the actual layout containers from apk files works more precise and can reveal more than before. there will still be a few apps left who do that layout stuff in java - we will add an override button for that, but in the meantime you can edit /system/etc/paranoid/properties.conf .layout=360 for phone-like UI, 600 for phablet, 720 = tablet, 1280 = super huge tablet
  • Several bugfixes from us and cm
  • CDMA SIM
  • 20120723v1.9.5a - On Page 23
  • Finally hardware accelerated recents in TabUI, as fluid as ever. The ugly gradient is gone aswell
  • A clean backup properties file is shipped, you can make a full reset in the panel in case you lost it with all the settings you made
  • Force option can be activated in the panel, good for widget scaling
  • The DPI sliders in the panel read min/max props from properties.conf, define them as you like
  • TabUI Recents are back to a bigger size, this is temporary, i'll look for ways to port the phone implementation as project butter skipped the tabUI code
  • Cyanogenmod fixes
  • New GApps
  • 20120723v1.9a / 1.9.1a - My edits are in RED
  • Newest CM10 patches (powertoggles for phoneUI, lockscreen options, etc,)
  • Definable number of notifications for navbar shaping
  • Hide clock wont cut it out of the notification center aswell
  • Lockscreen tutorial overlap *should* be fixed
  • Notificationcenter in TabUI has a draghandle like phablet and phone have
  • New GApps
  • Camera (very rough fix)
  • Panorama
  • Video Recording
  • Video Playback
  • YouTube (very rough fix) - I suggest starting out in landscape mode
  • Phone number

  • Do I flash this using ODIN?
    No. Use the custom recovery that's linked.
  • I still don't know how to install the ROM
    1. Download the ROM, GApps, and recovery.img from the OP
    2. Download and open the EZ recovery app from HERE
    3. Select custom, then select the box with 3 dots... find the d2vzw_recovery.img you downloaded in step 1 part B., select flash, then Reboot Recovery
    4. From CWM recovery, Perform a nandroid backup from the backup/restore menu
    5. Wipe data/factory reset
    6. Select install .zip from sd and install the rom you downloaded in step 1 part A.
    7. Select install .zip from sd and install the gapps package you downloaded in step 1 part B.
    8. Reboot

      Thanks droidstyle
  • I'm in a bootloop. Help!
    This is normal for now. The phone will reboot multiple times, but will get to the bootanimation and eventually boot up. Do not freak out.
  • Something went wrong! Can you help me?
    I'd love to help you, but I need a little more information about your issue. You should provide us with information regarding what your issue causes and what you did before the issue started. However, before asking me and the community, ask yourself two simple questions:
    • Can I reproduce the error?
    • Have I looked for a solution?
    If you answered "yes" to both of these questions and came up empty handed, then post it in the thread and it will be addressed. Even more helpful would be if you got a logcat. Like so:
    Code:
    adb logcat > logcat.txt
    OR (the better way so we dont have to keep downloading logs)
    Code:
    adb logcat
    • Paste the terminal output here (you don't need to register): http://pastebin.com/
    • Click "submit"
    • Share your link/logcat
  • When I use the camera the phone freezes and I have to do a battery pull...I thought it was fixed? (1.9.1a)
    It is fixed. It's just a pretty hacky fix. To take a picture, you will have to tap the screen to focus the camera BEFORE taking the picture. If you just press the camera button, the phone will freeze.
  • Can you add *this* to the ROM?
    Although I'm not obligated to add anything and everything to the ROM, I will do our best to supply your desires and live up to your expectations. Do not mistake this for a guarantee. I would like to do everything, but I may not be able to.
  • I'm experiencing some force closes, what gives?
    Boot into recovery and fix permissions. Reboot.
  • Where can I go for information about the latest updates?
    You can follow me on Twitter

Hopefully you already have adb installed (I'm assuming you do). You are going to want to download the recovery.img beanstown106/Team Epic has provided us with and then move it into the directory where you have adb installed (usually in "platform-tools" or "tools" in the android-sdk). Then cd to that directory using terminal or cmd (depending on your OS).

It should look something like:
Code:
cd .../Desktop/android-sdk/platform-tools
Once you do that, then enter each of the above commands (in the OP) in descending order. When it finishes, you're done.

Use section 5 of my guide in sig...just replace links with this rom and gapps.

PureMotive, thanks alot for this! If you like copy my section 5 instructions to your op...it uses mmmeff's EZ recovery app to install recovery. I believe this will keep the "how do i install this" questions at bay since most dont understand adb. Thanks again for your work!!

Normal camera doesn't work, but panorama and the video recorder do.
