About The ROM
Revision is based on I605VRALJB. Also, it's been specifically designed to be the most stable image to fall back on before or after flashing kernels, recoveries or ROMs. It will put your device into the MOST working condition possible currently. The only more possibly stable image would be the one your device came with and we don't have that.
What is Revision?
Revision is a stepping stone. It puts your device into a relatively stock, and known working condition.
I added the following tweaks to the ROM for usability and hackability.
Carrier Unlocked for AT&T network.
Rooted with ERD Chainfire's SuperSU
i2cdetect, i2cdump, i2cget, i2cset
PARAMS: UART Logging Increased
PARAMS: UART Root Prompt at battery charging
PARAMS: UART Shell terminal during normal operations
The PARAMS will be available in a future CASUAL application for testing.

Windows users: First uninstall PDANET drivers, then install Samsung Kies.
Here's some notes I wanted to record:
Uncompressing a Samsung System image
./ext4_utils/simg2img ./originalsystem.img ./working.img
Compressing a Samsung Image
sync; sudo ./ext4_utils/make_ext4fs -s -l 1792M -a ./temp ./system.img /path/to/mounted image
Create a tar.md5.gz file from a set of images..
tar -H ustar -c boot.img hidden.img modem.bin param.bin recovery.img system.img tz.img sboot.bin>./Revision1.tar;sync md5sum Revision1.tar >> Revision1.tar; mv Revision1.tar Revision1.tar.md5; sync; gzip Revision1.tar.md5 -c -v >Revision1.tar.md5.gz;
the tools are available on the internet.
Revision1: initial release
Revision2: Fixed Baseband issue. The PARAMS were to blame for this. Removed features to add functionality.
Revision3: Carrier Unlock for AT&T.. needs more work to get rid of Verizon warning. Thanks Joder for the APN info.
Revision3 repacked: apparently there was an issue with the uploaded Revision3. Repacked is a properly repackaged version of Revision3.
