What is an MD5 check-sum?
MD5 sum helps you identify any probable data loss issue which might have happened during the download process
and as a result of which you might be at a risk of flashing a incomplete/inaccurate download.
To mitigate this risk, simply check MD5 sum
(This can be easily checked with the help of ES file explorer/ Root explorer apps) and compare it with MD5 given on download site.
These 2 minutes can save 2 hours of reflashing for you.
What are the safe kernels that I have to be on, in order to flash this ROM?
CM9 / CM10
any NoteCore, SpeedMod v4 and above, Franco v4 and above
series of kernels.
I am coming from ABC - XYZ rom.
Is it safe to flash this ROM over it?
when your ABC-XYZ reads -
Official CM10 or AOKP builds
CM10 or AOKP variant builds
Any other AOSP based ROM
I want to brick my device and then blame HI for it.
What do I do?
The best way to brick your device and blame HI for it is to flash HI over these kernels -
any CF--Root ICS kernel
SpeedMod v3 and below, Franco v3 and below
old leaked kernels
such as LP1, LP5, LPY and LP6 etc
What is Full Wipe & what is Cache Wipe using CWM?
Full wipe = Wipe Data / Factory Reset
This wipes all your user data like user applications, account settings, logins etc along with the cache partitions.
However, data stored in your sd-card like pictures, movies etc remain intact.
Cache wipe = User Applications and data remains untouched.
Only the cache you have previously accumulated gets purged.
What are Gapps? Why do I need them?
Please buy a Nokia or a BlackBerry.
Which version of Gapps should I flash? And when?
You can also download from Goo.im
or other JB threads that provide the same.
You may flash them after you have installed the ROM (assuming you have done so after a Full Wipe).
Yet, I would personally request that you first flash the ROM and re-boot to see if all's well. Flashing Gapps + Kernel + other MODs seems to be giving issues on THIS rom.
Which kernels can I use with HI?
Since the ROM has been updated with the latest r3p0 drivers, it is essential that you use ONLY the kernel that comes with the ROM.
Where is the Email App? And the Exchange App?
Anything that you can't find will be provided in a .zip file called [COLOR="Green]RemovedAPKs[/COLOR].
Download the zip and place in your device.
Using a suitable File Manager to extract the zip.
Copy the apks for applications which you want.
Paste them under /system/app
Change permissions to rw-r--r--
(simply set it same as any other app in the same folder)
I can't find S-Note or S-Memo in this ROM.
Neither can I
What is the default DPI in HI and how can I change it?
Default DPI in HI is 320
. To modify this -
Open your File Browser that has root access.
Navigate to /system/build.prop
and open it as a text file.
Scroll down to ro.sf.lcd_density
and set it to any number of your choice. Recommended values are 240, 213, 160
In case there are errors or issues, no one is responsible but yourself. So unless you know what you are doing, please tread cautiously
How do I choose themes on HI?
Download any compatible theme of your choice from the Play Store.
Go in System Settings --> Themes –-> Theme chooser
Choose downloaded theme –-> Select Apply.
My Question is still unanswered. And I am a bit shy of asking on the threads, lest I should be stoned to death.
What do I do?
Read some motivational books that help you work on your self-confidence.
Come back to the thread and ask.
If it turns out that your question could be answered by simply using the search function,
or reading the first 4-5 posts - chances are you will still be stoned.
Motivational books are boring. I watched 300 instead.
Now I am all pumped-up to ask any question, no matter how pathetic.
Good. This gives us the opportunity to see how long you can withstand the stoning.
Your watching 300
should be of some help to you.
