Default [ROM][JDQ39][AOSP][LINARO][SM-TOOLCHAIN-4.9] 4.2.2 SaberMod - 05/19/13


I built this ROM from AOSP source and added 40+ Linaro patches to the source for strict-aliasing compiler optimizations. Roms include Linaro string handling routines for memory optimizations. No android kitchens were used to make this rom at all, everything is source build
All ROMs and kernels are built with SaberMod toolchains. The ROMs are built with GCC 4.9 toolchains. The kernels are built with GCC 4.8 toolchains.

Instructions:
First time flashing this ROM on your Nexus 7, or coming from another ROM?
  1. Root the device and install ClockworkMod or TWRP Recovery.
  2. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  3. Format the system, data & cache partitions of your device.
  4. Perform a factory reset.
  5. Flash ROM.
  6. Flash Gapps package (optional)

Flashing a newer version?
  1. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
  2. Wipe cache and dalvik-cache in recovery
  3. Flash ROM
  4. Flash Gapps add-on package (optional)

A few notes on battery/charging
After flashing ROM and/or kernel you may get some battery drain. Give the device time to settle into the ROM/kernel, and after a full charge or two you should notice improved battery life.

Flashing a Testing kernel?
I've decided to add testing kernels which will allow users to try-out a newer kernel version and give their feedback on it before I include it in new ROM versions. This also allows me to just update kernels without having to update the entire ROM, when there is no ROM changes from one version to the next. I will include them as attachments.
  1. Reboot your device into recovery
  2. Flash the flashable zip in recovery
  3. Done

FAQ

SaberMod is a AOSP based ROM with some extra features added in and mostly from CyanogenMod.  SaberMod started out pure AOSP when android 4.2.1 launched.  Originally it was pure AOSP with a few extra features I ported over from CyanogeMod and linaro optimizations.  Then I rebased everything off of rasbeanjelly because I liked many features found in rasbean.  Since then I've modified a lot of the code so not much of it is rasbeanjelly based anymore.  But you will still find some commonly used features found in rasbeanjelly.  SaberMod is not a rasbeanjelly or CM clone, or KANG.  Custom kernels are included for certain devices when available.  These are personal builds we make for ourselves and originally became very popular in the nexus 7 forums.  Features are very rarely added, and are built to SaberMod's team members liking.  Currently there are two members of SaberMod working on this project.  Myself and        @jarjar124 .  Please understand our time is limited and we are only two people who have lives, and do not have 25-50 members like CyanogenMod to add things.  And our goal is not to add a bunch of features that bloat the system of the ROM.

Q "Does this ROM have such and such feature?
A "Did you read the first post?  Most if not all features are listed in the OP.  If you find a feature not listed, tell us and we will add it.  Yes, sometimes we miss things."

Q "Very nice ROM, but...  Can you add such and such feature?"
A "Depends on a few things, if we think it is a feature we want in the ROM and how easy it is to implement into SaberMod.  If you get ignored it's because we're undecided, nothing personal."

Q "I keep asking over and over again if such and such feature can be added but my questions keep getting ignored, why?"
A "Probably because your asking a question that's already been answered, and a simple thread search can answer for you.  Either that or we are undecided about it."

Q "I reported a bug but my post gets ignored, why?"
A "Either it's not a bug or you provided no information such as a logcat that has the correct information in it needed to find a possible fix or solution."

Q "I have some problems but I'm using another kernel.  Can you fix?"
A "If you think it's a ROM issue state so.  If your not sure post a logcat.  Don't post last_kmsg for other kernels, cause we can't help"

Q "I think I'm having a problem with the kernel, and I need a fix ASAP!"
A "adb pull /proc/last_kmsg or it never happened and your post will be ignored."

Q "Can I build SaberMod from source code on Linux?"
A "Yes, it is encouraged, machine setup instructions are as follows.  SaberMod builds with the latest version of Ubuntu 13.04 and java 7 or java 6 (either one)
Set up your build envirnoment: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...19&postcount=1
Skip the part that installs java 6 if you want to install java 7 instead.
If you want to install java 7 go here: http://openjdk.java.net/install/
Code:
Select Code
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jdk
Downloading the source
Code:
Select Code
mkdir -p ~/android/SaberMod && cd ~/android/SaberMod;
repo init -u https://github.com/SaberMod/android.git -b sm-jb-mr1
repo sync
bash sm-mako
Follow the script instructions for building and make your selections on how you want to build your ROM. Q "What if I have trouble building or I'm confused on the instructions, can I post questions in this thread for help?" A "Yes it's encouraged and discussing it might help others." Q "There's some things in the ROMs that are not in my language, can you please translate?" A "We can not translate currently, but if you want to help translate parts of the ROM that are only in English contact us and we will try."

  • Added graphite flags for CC and CPP programming languages optimizations
  • Built latest toolchains from GNU source and enabled graphite functionality. This allows graphite optimizations to be used during compilation.
  • Added even more optimization flags, but none that increase code size to a unsafe level that will cause more battery drain and memory usage.
  • Disabled zram from running by default. Was causing lag and battery drain.
  • Bring variable lockscreen pattern size back now that it's fixed.

Kernel Changes
  • Merged with latest 3.2.y linux patches. Bump to V3.8 respectively.
  • Put default clock frequencies back to stock, 102MHZ min and 1.3GHZ max.
  • Disabled BFQ I/O scheduler. With the latest 3.2.y changes it's not as compatible as before and is throwing out a lot of warning during compilation time. The new default is CFQ. Change to your liking if you so wish to.

  • Kernel is now built with SaberMod's very own arm-eabi GCC 4.8 toolchain! :)
  • Built with toolchain revision 195953. GNU updates their GCC source daily, sometime even hourly! Of course I don't have time to rebuild toolchains on a hourly basis that would be absurd lol! But I will try to update it once every day or two days if I have time. New kernel versions will either be posted seperately on the first post and/or in new ROM versions. New ROM builds only need to be updated with ROM changes, not for only kernel. So if you want the latest and greatest kernel version, check regularly ;)
  • Toolchain source is here and does not require any special kernel patches to build the kernel with it :)
  • Initial merges for android 4.4.2. This is the first beta so expect bugs, although I haven't found any yet.
  • Rom uses stock kernel until AOSP updates the relevant hardware to match the kernel drivers.
  • Merged with latest AOSP kernel source for 4.2.2. Bumped major version to 4.8
  • Bumped new daily arm-eabi SaberMod toolchain. Built with toolchain revision 195953 (Newer GNU GCC source)
  • Default kernel settings for governor and I/O scheduler to match stock kernel. Userspace for governor and CFQ for I/O scheduler
  • Merged with latest linux-3.2.y branch patches. Bumped minor version to 4.9
  • Added zen I/O scheduler per request of @danny8
  • Added cifs module back now that it's functional
  • Added more kernel flag optimizations
sm_tilapia-1.0.1-RC3
  • Fixed various bugs with gallery and voice search
  • Other various minor ROM bug fixes
  • Added SaberMod GCC 4.8 toolchains for building the ROMs. This is a huge step and a major improvement in these ROMs

Right on let me know how it runs, so far pre-beta testing I've had nothing but good news. Also if someone could possibly post up some screenshots at some point (as many as possible), that would be really helpful as I have no idea how this ROM looks lol.

Not sure as I don't own this device. I've just had a pre-beta tester.

I checked and tethering probably won't work unless someone provides the source on how to do it. Prebuilt flashable framework apps won't work as this ROM has a custom framework. I need pure source code for this.
