Kernel and init.d improvements
Theme fixes and updates

  • Added Quad/Floating Multiwindow "dark and light themes in aroma".
  • Few more install script fixes
  • Added toggle for Secure Lock Screen Widgets.
  • Torch toggle works natively now, no need for the Torch app now. thanks to CNexus.
  • Added a long press to torch toggle to lock screen torch settings.
  • Couple of KK theme changes
  • Made default call recordings to a different forlder /media/0/Recorded Calls
  • If you do a clean install you'll have the smart network toggle. or add SmartNetwork; to the settingprovider/settings.db

  • Various AROMA changes and fixes. You can delete or move all the S3Rx.prop files on your internal sdcard. If you move them just make a
  • folder S3Rx and move them there.
  • Various theme fixes.
  • Added Kit Kat theme.
  • Added note 2 keyboard.
  • Fixed note 3 keyboard audio and haptic feedback.
  • Think I fixed auto learning and prediction. No auto correction on Note 3 keyboard.
  • Fixed the block on flip fonts... Added hundreds of fonts.
  • Fixed volume on call while screen off.
  • Added customizable aosp mms to aroma. thanks to talkingmonkeys.
  • Added Note 3 style incoming call pop up when screen is on. Toggle for pop up is in call settings.
  • Removed app signature verification. Makes updating hacked apps easier.
  • Added CRT effect switch in extra settings.
  • Improved auto brightness.

  • Fixed Call recording
  • Fixed CM theme

  • Full Aroma installer
  • Lost of new mods.
  • Please refer to feature list in the OP

  1. fixed font issue force closing settings.
  2. added crt off effect.
  3. fixed updated hagouts video chat, missing lib file
  4. moved more bloat to data/app
  5. Needs testing but I resigned the AccessT-Mobile app so it shouldn't be recognized by the market. So since this version should be safe form the update you can choose to use it or uninstall it.
  6. Fixed 1% battery mod... seems Samsung used 2 sets of xml to control the the battery icons.

Known Issues
  1. Screen off torch light is buggy. It will work fine within 3 seconds of the screen being turned off. If it works perfect for you no matter when you turned the screen off then it is creating the wakelock and you may experience some extra battery draw. *A reboot will get rid of the wakelock*
  2. Battery MOD my be a little funky till you mess with the settings. *It might also be slow to open, as we add more icons it will get slower*
  3. Tell us if you notice anything else.

GPS Issues?

GPS not locking: Unfortunately This is going to happen to some when coming from AOSP based ROMs and other carrier ports.

A couple common fixes include...
================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============
1. Easiest and most reliable way. Try this first!
  • Enter the Samsung service mode by typing this code into the dial pad *#197328640#
  • Then go to Mainmenu>UMTS>Common>NV REBUILD>NV REBUILD> (Important: don't exit the menu yet!)
  • Wait 30+ sec
  • Long press power button and select "Restart / Reboot"
  • Now check your GPS from any software that may use GPS like "Maps" or "GPS Status"...

All credit to harshaedvern for this easy fix

================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============

2. Returning to the stock ROM via ODIN, acquire a GPS lock then reboot into Recovery.. Wipe and Flash new ROM.
I recommend trying Chainfire's MOBILE ODIN first before the desktop version, it's really easy to use and it's free to XDA users HERE.
You can flash an ODIN package right from your phone and still retain your custom recovery, simply exclude it from the list of partitions to flash.
It will also inject ROOT if the ODIN package does not already have it... makes things really simple.
================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============

3. Restoring a nandroid of a TouchWiz ROM with a known working GPS status, make sure all location services are enables and can obtain a GPS lock. (go to additional steps now if needed) Reboot, Wipe and Flash New ROM...
Additional steps if required before flashing new ROM:
Backup your internal storage and take out your sd-card now... just in case stuff gets deleted. Do a Factory Reset form within the restored TW nandroid. Reboot... Skip all the setup stuff... acquire a GPS lock again... Reboot into recovery Wipe and Flash the new ROM.
================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============

4. Flash back to the AOSP ROM you were just on. Obtain a GPS lock, then reinstall ROM again and see if GPS works

================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============

5. Repeat until one of the options ends up working... Not much else to tell you to try. Good luck!

================================================== ================================================== ================================================== ===============

GPS and Location Services: If you have Google Maps installed and Google Now, you will notice Maps uses your location services a lot during the day. Apparently Google thinks we need our location tracked 24/7. Turning GPS on only when needed will help eliminate the wakelocks created by maps. Going a step further you may also want to disable the "Use Network Location", This will also stop other apps form getting your location... Most apps will let you enter your location manually so it's not really a big deal turning it off, especially when your talking about increasing your battery life.

Only supporting AT&T. That's why it's only on the AT&T forums.

Ok. That was a little freaky. Went to download from DevHost, Rom was dated 4-26, 746 MB and it stuck on waiting. Refreshed thread, ROM is dated 4-27 and up to 1 GB.
I have a feeling I'm glad my first try didn't download. :thumbup:

Looking forward to giving this a run guys!

EDIT: see why now...I had clicked on the "non-aroma"...sorry for wasted post.
