Team Vanir Presents...


Yeah, it's got a HEMI

Vanir was founded on the premise of performance tuning Android. We are based on AOSP, but include features (many of which have been rewritten to be more efficient) from other ROMs.

If you brick your phone, or drop it because it's so buttery, IT'S YOUR FAULT.

Status Bar

- Quick Setting including numerous customizations
- Customize clock display and location, customize signal bar
- % displayed in battery + circle mod
- Transparency

Navigation Bar

- Customizable buttons + colors
- Customizable height + width
- Navi Ring
- Transparency


- Fully customizable targets/rotation/widgets/ and more
- Transparency

General Tweaks

- Ad blocking
- PIE: with extended options
- Tablet UI Chooser
- DPI/LCD changer + force tablet settings mode
- Theme Chooser: Including inverted theme
- Galaxy Nexus Parts
- ADB over network
- Bravia Engine 3.0
- Custom Carrier text
- Custom backlight
- Expanded Desktop: with different modes
- Extended Power menu
- A-GPS. --> Credit happily1986
- Long press back to kill (in developer options)
- OTA Updater - Settings > About Phone > Vanir Updates

Application Tweaks

- Selectable Gtalk
- Expanded Phone: noise reduction, advanced settings, speaker proximity
- Expanded MMS including Quick Emoji
- Camera: Enhanced settings (credit CM)
- Functional Sound Recorder
- Koush’s Superuser
- Vanir Keyboard – removed tracking/logging – highly optimized

Performance Manager

- Processor governor + speed
- Voltage control
- I/o Scheduler
- Disable boot animation
- Enhance recent menu


- Beats Audio – Cherry picked from several sources, but chiefly NexusLouderV6B5
- Quiet Hours
- DSP Manager included (Credit CM)
- Volume wake / rocker music controld
- Rewritten Speaker proximity designed for Commotio/Vanir


- All inclusive ~180 MB –> 60 MB of Bloat removed
- Fully featured LatinIME Keyboard, but only 2.2 MB (normally 16-20 MB), removed tracking/logging
- And soo much more


- Compiled with linaro keychain
- GCC 4.8 w/ -O3 -fstrict-aliasing AKA highly optimized compiling for better results (like Linaro)
- DHOtheory: Sets up the kernel/ROM the way I like it, then self destructs on first boot, so you can change it later
- Go-faster Axiom scripts
- Vanirice – makes everything just a bit smoother
- For every “feature” there are 5 power saving and performance tweaks


Nuke’s Nightlies
DHO’s Nightlies


After flashing, you can just use the OTA Updater in Settings > About Phone > Vanir Updates for future builds

Includes a custom Vanir Kernel

- LZO compression (which improves boot times)
- voltage control
- sound control (from faux123)
- crpalmer's rewrite of msm_thermal
- force fast charge
- sweep2wake, logo menu, logo wake, logo sleep, home2wake, doubletap2wake, and pocket protection (all from tbalden)
- Westwood+ as default TCP Congestion avoidance algorithm

To change Sweep2Wake options, you can use:
or FauxClock:

You can also use a root browser and navigate to /sys/android_touch and change the values manually:
for pocket_detect = 0 - no pocket protection, 1 - pocket wake protection, 2 - pocket wake protection with only near check, no dark check
for doubletap2wake = 1 for doubletap screen to wake
for home2wake = 0 -> No wake 1 -> Home2Wake, 2 -> Home2Wake/Logo2Sleep if l2m_switch = 0, 3 -> Logo2wake/Logo2sleep if l2m_switch = 0
for logo2menu = 0 -> logo used as power off on long tap, and short tap syncs input on/off at same time, 1 -> logo used as full menu button, sync on/off events separately
for sweep2wake = 1 for sweep2wake, 0 for no sweep2wake

Or echo values in manually (in a terminal emulator), for example:
su echo 3 > /sys/android_touch/home2wake
