12/21/13
  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"...
================================================== ============

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.

Flashed this earlier today and it's been running pretty smoothly Wifi calling would be awesome. I get terrible reception at work. Is there any way we can manually add it back? I'd be willing to give it a shot

Flashed last night, and it's running pretty smoothly.
One thing though is I cannot get pattern lock to start.

Edit: I did get it going with a reboot.

Anyone can do whatever they like with this ROM. I just figured that with the features loserskater and I implemented, thought you enjoy it.
With that said it shouldn't be much of an issue for a dev here to pretty much copy the features we added. Getting the WiFi calling back will involve putting the toggle back in the SecSettings.apk use the original IPServices.apk this one is hacked. Replace the missing ims-service.apk and ip-provider.apk Replace the phone.apk . Replacing the phone.apk will get rid of call recording. You won't be able to get call recording back using the T-Mobile phone.apk. There might have been more WiFi calling stuff removed in the android.policy.jar as well but I don't remember.

I've never understood the WiFi calling issue. I personally use Talkatone, and haven't missed a beat.
As for the features I look for to make or break a rom for me, this rom is tight. Phone, camera/pictures and music are all working great so far. I'm gonna be trying some different kernels later to see if I can tweak the battery life (it's all right now, but I'm always looking for improvements), and maybe another theme, though the dark green one I chose in Aroma is nice itself.
All in all, so far this rom has gotten off to a strong start. Nice job, and two thumbs up.
