Hello mate,

Before rushing to download this rom (I know everyone does it, I'm not an exception either), take some time to read what I'm about to write down here.

Let me introduce you to my ROM, called simply: SHPONGLE.

Its a ROM like every other one, nothing too special about it, everyone knows the features, you have seen it in every rom that its out there for other phones. So if you expect this one to be something really special, something that will blow your mind away, stop, take a long, deep breathe and close this page. This is not a ROM that makes you pancakes, nor it will transform your device in something way more cooler than a Nexus, for example.

I've spent days and nights working on this new release and I know you were waiting anxiously for me to say "Build's up", I'm sorry I kept you, mate, waiting for such a long time but you know me (do you?). If even one single bug was introduced, the build was canceled. That's why it took so long. There are numerous things changed and added that, I hope I kept track of everything. There were numerous errors/crashes/incompatibilities to squash and I'm very proud of myself right now.

So, what is SHPONGLE and why did you changed the name?
When I first worked on Evervolv and fixed almost everything in one go, I thought that I've found a gold mine. To bring an AOSP rom to life, on a legacy device, its pretty much committing suicide. Not only there are 99% chances that the build will not get past Htc's logo screen, but there is 100% chance of not having things working in it ever (take for example camera, which is pretty much hacked because HTC does its job of not releasing camera drivers).
Evervolv's base helped us so much, I want to thank them for doing a great job on keeping legacy devices alive, but, it is time to let go.

Then I started to feel "home sick" of my last ROM for Hero (its a phone) and I thought: "Why shouldn't I work myself in turning this Evervolv ROM in something totally different, in the memory of my last ROM?". So that's how, there is no Evervolv anymore, nor it will be in the near future. This right here is SHPONGLE. Welcome, to One V, Shpongle!

At its core, this ROM still remains an Evervolv, but I have faith that the birth of his child, SHPONGLE, will rock on your device even if I will be gone.

Yeah, but what SHPONGLE means, anyway?

If any of you wants to know what it really is, I suggest you go and search on Youtube. If you are a little bit like myself, you'll love it!

I feel the need to repeat myself now, mate: This ROM has nothing special in it. It's just the result of my love, passion and a bit of myself inside. You'll feel the smoothness but you will also feel some strutting. Don't blame the ROM (well, you can blame it) but blame the HW. With 512 mb of ram, you can't expect too much of it frankly.

On with the ROM we go!

Sorry to say this but you will get a lot of UI freezes and force closings - I don't know the cause of it YET, but you guys can get me logcat of those - PLEASE - work with each other and provide only 1 LOGCAT of the same issue, not multiple logcats for one issue. I want you to work as a team because only then this rom will get where it should be, with your help!

I want:
  • logcat with GPS trying to lock into satelites (using google maps or something similar while you do a logcat);
  • logcat with the UI freezes;

I don't want:
  • logcat for camera;

Thank you as well. Take note that the status bar seems pretty laggy and unstable if you play with it. I managed to get SystemUI to restart itself while I was in the lockscreen and I wanted to slide down the status bar. I pressed and hold the statusbar for 5 seconds while in lockscreen and the UI just restarted itself.

Another issue:
When you receive a SMS and you are in the lockscreen, slide the statusbar down, and press the message. You will not be directed into the messaging app but instead you will see the lockscreen. When you will slide to go to home screen, the message saying that the sms app has stopped working will appear - This issue is easily fixed by forcing the status bar to not be accessible when in lockscreen - Need to search for the code to implement it. MINOR issue!
