Default [ROM][APR 14][4.3][MJE] Incognito v1.1.1 | Slim & ODEXed for Speed & Efficiency |

***** Incognito ROM v1.1.1 *****

I am not responsible for anything you do with your device. By downloading 
and installing this ROM, you waived any responsibility on my part in perpetuity 
throughout the known universe.

About incognito ROM

  • Stable
  • Odexed for speed and efficiency

  • Odexed
  • Zipaligned apks
  • Rooted
  • Init.d support
  • Unlocked tether
  • Busybox installed
  • Enabled camera shutter sound toggle
  • Enabled AOSP navbar
  • Scripts to freeze/unfreeze or uninstall bloatware (found in /sdcard/incognito/scripts)
  • Uniquely Debloated - No apps removed, only disabled.
  • Fixed camera/transition scale bug


Installation instructions
  • Check MD5: v1.1.1: 82b320f6ed6a0aa5c7807a3e6ca4ea78
  • Root and Safe Strap Recovery 3.65/3.71 are required
  • Copy ROM to storage
  • Reboot to Recovery
  • Select ROM slot, create new if necessary

  • YOUR PHONE WILL REBOOT ONCE ON ITS OWN ROUGHLY 2-3 MINUTES AFTER THE SETUP WIZARD LAUNCHES. WAIT TO SET UP YOUR PHONE UNTIL THIS OCCURS. THIS IS NORMAL AND NOT A BUG. THE DEBLOATING SCRIPT THAT RUNS AT FIRST BOOT HAS A REBOOT COMMAND AT THE END TO SORT OF CLEAN UP AFTER FREEZING. THE SCRIPT DELETES ITSELF WHEN DONE SO THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME THIS HAPPENS!

FAQ
Quote:
Q: Why Odexed, isn't deodexed better for theming?
A: Yes, deodexed is easier to theme since all necessary files are contained within the apk. However, odex standing for optimized dalvik executable is exactly that, optimized. Because of this odex is faster and more efficient.

Q: Why does my phone reboot on the first boot?
A: I wanted to debloat the ROM, but not remove apps that users may want. My solution was to write a script that runs on first boot and freezes ~65 apps or so. In this script I wrote a reboot command to sort of clean things up after freezing. This script also self destructs so following the first boot, it deletes itself to assure it never runs again.

Q: Will this ROM be packed full of tweaks and modifications in the future?
A: No. It's my opinion that with the plethora of modifications available via xposed framework, that packing a ROM with those same options is unnecessary and redundant. In addition, I think its best to leave it up to the user to decide which mods they want in the ROM. Regarding "tweaks," I am open to suggestions of mods that people find generally useful. However, if these changes cause issues in the ROM then they will be removed. I will be including a custom settings menu in the future, ideally embedded in the developer options to keep with the incognito nature of the ROM. This menu will only contain modifications not possible/present with xposed modules.

Q: How can I tell which version of the ROM I'm running?
A: Remember what you flashed. Again, to keep with the incognito nature of the ROM, you will not see any labeling or branding anywhere in the ROM. Settings>About phone will look exactlty as if you were running a stock ROM.

Q: Will you remove the ugly Verizon boot animation?
A: No. Again, I want this ROM to appear as stock as possible. I will however enable the end user with the ability to change the boot animation as they desire.

Q: How often will this ROM be updated?
A: As long as there are no bugs, not very frequently. This ROM is designed to provide a simple, stable, enhanced stock experience that can be reliably used for extended periods of time. However, if bugs pop up, then I will do my best to fix them right away.

Q: What is your build number convention?
A: x.x.x Base changes.Feature additions.Bug fixes. e.g. the KitKat build, when it comes, will be 2.0

Nice one. Good to see a nav bar in a rom. I know we can activate it with the build prop, but I like it toggled in a rom.

Just to clarify, its not enabled by default. I simply edited the SystemUI.apk so that it could be enabled via the standard build.prop edit or via GravityBox (or possibly some other xposed module). Also note, the navbar uses the AOSP orientation and icons so back is on the left and recent apps is on the right.

True. I tried gravity box on stock and it narsed me up with a system ui force close loop. I have it manually coded into the build prop at the moment.

Apparently there is a bottleneck in the upload, won't be done for at least a few more hours. I'll post here when the download is ready.
