Default Tweaked VZW Remix

This is a port of Tweaked for the T-Mobile Note 2, and the update to their latest OTA. It was ported by taking the changes and merging them into the VZW firmware, not by just replacing a few files. I will continue to maintain this and update it with the T-Mobile version, and also with future VZW Updates. It is TouchWiz and based on the latest OTA, VRALL4VRAMC3. I'm also working with dwitherell on some changes, though he did most of the work. There is a laundry list of changes, so see the main thread for a full change list. I'll put some basic stuff here though.

Features
  • Deodexed
  • Debloated
  • Rooted
  • Busybox (compiled by me)
  • Hacked Mobile Hotspot to ignore provisioning (tether without the plan)
  • N7100 Boot and Shutdown animations/sounds
  • Change Clock Position and Display
  • Battery Icon/Number/Color/MIUI
  • Hide Status Bar Icons
  • All Apps in Multi-Window
  • Toggles that will blow your mind
  • NFC with screen off, lockscreen, or standard
  • Lockscreen changes
  • Chrome Replaces Browser
  • Some changes to Mms
  • Camera Modified to ignore the battery
  • APN Editor
  • Removed Wifi Nag and Non-VZW SIM Message
  • Removed Backup Assistent
  • Will always display "Normal" for device status
  • Reboot Options
  • Volume won't change when plugging in headphones

Known Issues
Setup Wizard craps out on you. Just leave setup and things work fine.

To Do List
Fix Setup Wizard
Basic Aroma Options <-- Going a different route

There is more, and many of the things are available in the other ROMs posted here as well. Feel free to use whomever's ROM you want, I'm just posting this for some variety If you want screenshots, download and install it, then take them yourself. It will look different based on the options you set in TSM Parts for colors/transparency/icons/etc. and trying to get pictures of everything would take forever and take up bandwidth.

FAQ
I'm getting a "Status 7" error when installing, WTF?
Update recovery. The recovery that is flashed during unlock does not process asserts properly (was compiled for a different model Note 2). You need to update recovery to fix it. Once you update recovery, complain to AdamOutler who isn't keeping his recovery updated in the unlock packages.

I flashed the ROM, now I'm looping on the Samsung boot logo, why did you break my phone?
If you read the title, this is a ROM. It is not a ROM+Kernel. If you weren't on a TouchWiz ROM beforehand and you are coming to this, you need to flash a kernel before going out of recovery. Otherwise, your phone isn't going to work.

Why is my phone not sleeping on the latest update?
If you've installed the latest update, there is a new option for "no wake lag". If you check this option, your phone will not sleep. It keeps any "lag" from happening by keeping the phone from entering deep sleep. This doesn't affect battery life too much unless you are in a poor signal area. If you didn't check this option, it's time to start investigating.

Where is Aroma?
I'm looking into it, but don't expect miracles when it does show up. Aroma is needlessly complex, and I don't want to deal with troubleshooting 500 different installation options and worrying about supporting them when I wouldn't use 99% of them. I'm going to make a couple changes for an upcoming release to give you some minor customization options, but nothing major.

What the hell is TSMParts (new option in Settings menu)?
A huge slew of mods and tweaks originally put together by the original members of TSM and inspired by impressive works of numerous others - the TSMParts interface acts as a control for all of the customizable fun available. There are a large number of options there - so make sure to check them all out!

I set a statusbar icon to hide, but it's still there. What gives?
The statusbar icon tweaks may require a little effort on your part for changes to take effect. All changes can be elicited with a reboot/hotboot, BUT for most there are other ways:
-- Bluetooth/vibrate-silent/alarm icons/ime -- just change their state (on/off or vibrate/sound, etc)
-- No sim -- if the notification is already active you will need to reboot/hotboot to hide it

How does this One Hand toggle work?
The toggle, when on, forces ALL one-hand options to be selected. When off, it reverts the settings to WHATEVER they were before the toggle was turned on. This is still a work in progress, but it's a start. That being said - I'm open to suggestions on how to improve it

The toggles in the pulldown are suddenly a weird large size (width) - what gives?
This happens sometimes (usually if auto-rotate is enabled) - all you need to do to "reset" the size of the toggles is enable auto-rotate, then go into an app that allows for rotation and ...well, rotate. Rotate back and check the pulldown - all should be well once again.

This is the best thing since sliced bread, can I make it rain?
Since dwitherell did most of the hard work, it'd be great if you donated to him first. Otherwise, you can click the DONATE TO ME button to the left, or click here, it's appreciated, but not expected. Clicking thanks on the posts also works.

This thing is worse than Tub Girl, how do I go back to what I had before?
Restore your phone from a backup. Didn't backup before you flashed? Guess you should have

I'm having a problem, FIX IT NAO!!!1!
Send me the output from logcat as well as details of what you do when you see the problem. If you don't know how to get info from logcat, see here. If you still can't get the info, I guess you'll just have to deal with it.

Can we get XYZ feature added?
Link to it, and I'll talk it over with dwitherell

Why don't you mention blah blah blah in your FAQ? It would have helped me a lot!
My bad - PM me anything you think should be added to this that would be helpful for the general user base!

If anyone is using the build that was on Twitter, this is a minor update to that. I will also try to make patch updates for future releases so you aren't always downloading huge ZIPs to flash.
